    OK, so basically I was messing around with the contents of my 3DS's SD card. I have done some tests with Kirby's Dream Land, and here;s what I found.

    Replacing .app files will still allow the game to appear in the menu, but not boot.
    Editing the CMD still allows the game to boot. I replaced the last 4 digits of Kirby's CMD with HAXX and it still works fine.
    Swapping TMDs with Zelda DX (A game I don't own) still allows Kirby to boot. This one really baffles me.

    Any insight on why these things happen? The .app one is obvious, but the later two make me wonder.

    Come on, now. There's no sense in being so sarcastic. Even simple things like this have the potential to uncover hidden gems that Nintendo overlooked.
