    Doesn't concern you.


    Jokes, aside this is a rather simple app I developed due to extreme boredom, and also because I wanted to make use of the GSPLCD::SetBrightness/GSPLCD::SetBrightnessRaw functions I submitted to ctrulib today, also wanted to play around with APTHOOKs, so there's that. Basically just a sample for the two functions addressed above. This was also requested in the vita scene a few days ago, so I thought I'd make something similar for the 3DS. The 3DS brightness is pretty shit compared to the vita, but the two screens somewhat balances it out and gives a good amount of lighting. Believe me, there's always that one person who uses their 3DS for things you wouldn't imagine doing.

    All this app literally does is clears the screen (white) and sets the brightness to the highest level. It is recommended to use the start button to exit the app so that it restores your previous brightness. Pressing the home button will keep your device at max brightness. Also worth mentioning that this app is basically going to kill your battery, so be warned.

    Too bad this wasn't around when bootrom error screen homebrews were in style.
    It just doesn't look right without the LCD backlight set to kill.

    I wonder if something similar to this but dimming the brightness would be applicable
