    You can't edit a 3DSX file directly, you have to edit the source code. Most likely, it's written in C, so unless you know at least a little bit of that, you won't get far.

    That's simply not how it works. It's a one way conversion. C/C++ code -> Machine Code (packaged as a 3dsx)

    As stated above, that won't happen. It might be possible if there is a C/C++ disassembler, however. Such a program would most likely cost a lot of money (up in the hundreds in USD).

    What are you trying to edit, anyway? Maybe we can help?

    That's not any of this works.
    What is the homebrew you are trying to edit?

    In theory, you could use something like IDA to disassemble a 3DSX.

    In practice: Most 3DS homebrew is open source, so disassembling it instead of going to the original source code is a ridiculously dumb option.

    Which 3DSX are you looking at in particular?

    I have a very bad feeling about why he's asking for a 3dsx file editor. No offence, but from your previous posts you don't seem to be such a reliable person(That Guide) But if you post another guide about safehax, we shall all know it's been edited. <-Just felt like pointing that out.

    Yes I know I am trying to modify so to add fasthax so it loads
    Fast hax when launching it then running safehax thus removing the need to launch a separate exploit first

    Please don't. You have no idea what you are doing and you are just going to brick your 3DS. If you don't even know how properly search for the source of an open-source program, then you don't know how to modify safehax.
    You have no idea what you are doing and you are just going to brick your 3DS. Stop and properly educate yourself.
    If you are going to ask for a "3dsx file editor," then you are not ready for this undertaking.

    I found it before you even sent It to me I went to the release of safehax through 3ds.guide then went back to the source code.

    Do you even have any idea how to modify this source code? What programs you need to modify it? What programming language is was made with?

    Your indecisive answer already shows just how ill-prepared you are. If you don't know what you are doing, start small. Make small programs, make apps that only run with limited resources, stick within userland. You aren't just playing with fire, you are playing with a full blown bomb.

    Please, just stop. Think about what you have contributed to this community. Nothing, except a couple bricks. I know you are trying to do good but if you ask for a 3dsx editor or make a post before even searching for the source, I really don't think arm9 code execution software is something you should be currently handling.

    I'm not here to argue, but help... and i would listen to the woman with over 15,000 messages post count, and who wrote many guides on 3DS mods and hacking issues. Just saying... look at @Crystal the Glaceon signature. Those helpful links to guides she made like long time ago, still holds is own weight. :yay3ds:
