    Well I would love to start making a boot password Homebrew. Like for CFW you boot into a password page and then you have to enter the password, it isn't going to be anything special. I mean you could just remove the boot.3dsx file and you can boot into the system. The point of it is to get your sis or bro out of your 2/3DS so they don't update it.

    Install a corrupted theme, blocks anyone from doing anything to your console unless you remove the SD :P

    Well, if you install it on emuNAND, your only option to use it again will be to delete the extdata folder, so it won't be really convenient, but if you really want to do that, then just take any custom theme, mess with the body_LZ.bin with an hex editor, and then install it with CHMM :)

    Actually, you can. The parental control info is stored in the SMDH/icon of the program. It'd just be a matter of adding such support to Steveice10's bannertool, or editing the icon.bin that his program spits out afterward with a hex editor.

    If you install the bad theme on sysNAND, no, since you won't even be able to use it (you will freeze on the HOME menu, and the only way to remove it is by removing the SD card and selecting the default theme)
    If you install it on emuNAND, then yes, MenuHax will still work, but you'll be locked out of emuNAND until you delete the extdata folder from your SD card.

    And that's assuming your NANDs are unlinked =)

    EDIT: Of course, you can simply reinstall MenuHax if you want afterwards =)

    Dangit. Then I can't use it menuhax is my boot entry for rxTools and all that stuff. I could try and set up MSET but then I would have to remove my SD card to access Settings.

    Can you boot into miniPasta sysNAND with this?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    If you can, make sure it can boot into CFW's and homebrew launcher.

    If you install a bad theme, you can't do *anything* with the NAND you install it on, since it freezes into the HOME menu.
