    I will not put a release date, but it will be SOON!
    I have a lot of work lately (and also I am playing a lot lately) but I am on it

    I will tease you all with some of the new features for the new version: "Custom Themes does not get deleted after visiting the eShop":

    Huge thanks to @redunka for creating the video :yay3ds:!

    So, random question. Which firmware is that 3DS on? I'm worried this feature may be incompatible with 11.4.

    "Now copy it to your 3DS and install it with your favorite CIA installer."

    "YOU MUST NEVER EVER EVER USE FBI TO INSTALL THEME PACKAGES OR DLC CONTENT"


    Ok, so FBI is my favorite, and I read everything and i dont get why I cant use this...

    Themes won't appear if you do. Use DevMenu or BigBlueMenu.

    lol with my own words

    DLC content does not install properly with homebrew installers.
    This is not an issue of the homebrew applications itself, it is a SDK's issue itself.

    So, is this still being worked on or will Soon™ turn into Never™?
    I'm also still on the Beta Testing team, right? Send me the Beta and a list of things to test when it's ready.

    I will show some sneak peaks from the WIP.
    In the 1st pic, I highlighted every item in the top area of the app (start the theories about the idden ones usage) and I hide the BTM for some thing I wanna hide for now, I will make it public later.
    [​IMG]

    And now, the new "export" menu on the IDE and running on the app:
    [​IMG]
    sorry, I code first in Spanish, these pics are from the wip version, so... the pics are Spanish only.

    for the people that wanna know more...
    I will later show a teaser video...

    Why is this taking so much time? I'm not demanding anything, I'm just curious about it.

    Because, as it says in the OP's last status update, she's "Creating the impossible." Creating the impossible takes a lot of time, but we'll have it before 2018.
