    You can use this site to get the necessary files to use 3ds.guide. Beginners are still advised to manually go over the guide once to know what you're getting into, the purpose of this site is for convenience for those who use the guide a lot. Files included are payloads, exploits, and apps. Copyrighted files are not included but magnet links are on the download page.

    Looks really nice! Does it interpret the 3ds.guide pages or do you maintain the download list?

    I think the site means that 11.4 is unable to run CFW.

    For some reason, I thought you we're referring to 3ds.guide.

    You will be wrong on that, but good guess though.

    I like this. Will definitely be easier than running around github and torrenting with to many tabs open in chrome

    It builds an archive with all the files needed for the 3ds.guide. No files are stored on the server, it downloads what you need for whatever version you choose and zips it all. It's user friendly so anyone can use it

    Does this stay updated as the guide updates, or do you update it manually? If the latter it could be dangerous..... I already made an app that downloads stuff, and doesn't require a torrent client (I have torrent code in my app), and it stays updated automatically because it parses the pages and extracts the links, and parses the github release pages to find the direct links there. And extracts the files and puts them in the right folders on your SD. I stopped working on it due to not having time and passed it on to @Olmectron though.

    Yea it get's whatever is latest on github, I don't manually add each version. Unless something new comes out then I would have to update it manually to include the new things.

    This is a problem. The guide linked to an older version of SafeA9lhInstaller for a long time, not sure if it still does, because of potential bricks with the latest version. My first attempt at a guide downloader (it kept packages of files from each day as a sort of archive) was also getting the latest version of each github repository - that had to stop when the guide started linking to older versions on purpose. Also, if there is a new tool it won't capture that until you notice and add it (that happened to me too).

    The guide currently links to this one and that's where it grabs it from. And yea, I see the problem with having to manually add new tools after I notice them but I don't see a change in that unless the site parses the guide website somehow. I don't think it'll be too much of a problem as new tools are usually big news and I frequent shacking forums, unless I'm dead or really sick then I wouldn't be able to add it but the chances of that happening exactly when a new method is out is slim.

    Would you like to just use my database? I maintain links to all the files by scraping the guide.
