    Is there some homebrew that changes the 3ds logo when booting up a game? Kind of like the custom themes in psp cfw. I tried searching but I couldn't find anything

    Homebrew? Almost definitely no. If the game is a CIA installed in CFW, you could probably replace the banner. If it's on a cart then it's unlikely you'd be able to replace it as the banner would be on the cart itself. It would involve a change to the firmware to get it to load the banner from elsewhere.

    You mean the 3DS logo with waves? That's probably not even part of the game data, likely part of the system (maybe home or something)

    The closest you could come to that would be rebuilding the CIA with an RSF that indicates a custom logo (this is how the HB Launcher CIA does it), but makerom doesn't support animated ones yet. It'd also be annoying to make a proper RSF for each game, so it'd hardly be worth the effort.

    actually that would make it more plausible if we could find what CIA on nand contained the file decrypt it replace the files and recompile it could work on EMUnand since it bypasses signature checks.

    (but it takes decypting NAND files QQ)

    its not as easy as the PSP where you just made a game.pmf file (using sonys video tools) and just copied it over to nand

    Then how did Yellows8 replace it on his Homebrew Launcher CIA?

    CIAs can contain their own banner and launch screen. It's even easier with homebrew as I believe you can specify the banner and launch image when you compile the app into a CIA.

    when I look at makerom, the "Homebrew" logo is probably hard-coded into makerom. I could be wrong, but...

    this means you can set this line in the .rsf to "Homebrew" now:
