    My nieces and nephew have hacked 3ds's. They are luckily pretty switched on and quite obedient on not messing about with things they shouldn't be like the KEEP OUT folder lol. Anyway are there any tips on things that can be done to help keep curious fingers away from erasing nands and such?

    Never really used a 3ds myself tbh but have run some through hack tutorials a few times so im not really familiar with the child lock, can it be used to lock out a program folder on the main wii menu?

    Mainly tho how can i make Luma and Hourglass a bit more tricky to load rather than just powering on with Start or Select pressed?

    Thanks for reading.

    If they were able to hack their 3ds"s then they should be fine to begin with...

    Lock down FBI using Parental Controls options inside the system settings.

    Remove all luma payloads, only putting them in as you need.

    Changing luma option can't brick the machine. May make it unable to boot but that's an easy fix.

    Put the payload in when you want to backup/restore. Remove it afterwards. There's no way to lock luma payloads.

    Once upon a time I believe people asked for a "child mode" sort of feature in Luma, but that got rejected for some reason.

    Well, you can use SALT if you don't want any options

    There's always the parental locks in the 3DS settings, but that only goes so far.
