    Just wondering :/ I know we can use ROP MULTILOADER .nds to run either a homebrew or a MT/GW launcher, and the MSET exploit has full kernal access, so can't we make a DevMenu/BigBlueBox as a Launcher.dat?

    Not too useful, actually DevMenu is only for CIA installing when you're on Emunand, so, if you have it as a launcher, you will be able to install CIAs, but not to launch them.

    I'm pretty sure they'd become too large of a binary to work.

    No no, hum, when you use DevMenu you want to install CIAs as a channels, no? Well, the only way to open those channels is via Emunand. So, if you have Bluemenu as launcher.dat, then, how do you think you'll be able to open it if you use your *.dat for the devmenu and not for the launcher of the emunand? I don't know if you understand my point.

    Maybe, possibly. I'd talk to the Rin about that. I know Steve is developing a .CIA manager named FBI. You can talk to him, too.

    I understand :) Thanks for explaining But after it installs the CIA file can't you plug your SD card into your computer and then replace the CIA program Launcher.dat with MT's or Gateway's to boot into EmuNAND.

    In order to run the illegitimate CIAs, you'd need gateway (or MT) mode. Which requires a card, and you'd just be able to run devmenu on that anyway. Which defeats the purpose of using it as a launcher.dat.

    This is somewhat correct. If you make/find/install 'legit/clean' CIAs (which just recently started popping up online), you can install using devmenu, and then run using sysnand or even after a system transfer. This is because they aren't tied to the ticket and are signed correctly, so they can be run without the exploits. The trick would be installing them. Which devmenu could do.

    Either way, there's not really a point to devemenu as a launcher.dat, since if you can run the launcher.dat, you can boot up into CFW or gateway mode and run devmenu in there (which would be needed for illegitimate CIAs anyway).

    nope, you would need to install CFW for that.

    Nope. But you can run CFW, which accomplishes the same thing (albeit on 4.X rather than 9.X)

    This could work if you patched the system and booted back into sysnand instead of emunand, but at that point you can still just run devmenu...

    why not try to decrypt any if these launchers, change some magic value to true(isCardInserted) and profit!

    I can verify that this works. Incredible. Thank god gateway's launchers are so simple to effortlessly decrypt and modify!
