    I was messing around with my 3ds when I opened download play, after that I clicked on the DS button. Then it booted me into DS mode. That sparked a question, could the 3ds boot to the DS menu in anyway shape or form? Maybe using an R4 or something?

    You can use NTR Launcher if you only want to see the NDS bootsplash, NTR Firmware doesn't work properly on 3DS, it gets stuck at DS Profile's settings.

    The full DS menu can run, but after every launch, it thinks it's the first boot, so it goes through the settings and shuts down. I don't know if it's possible to patch it, but I'd doubt anyone capable of doing so would think it's worth it.

    No method, only a video proving that NTR Firmware was possible on 3DS.
