    Shameless Repost of Masher's gridlauncher post, because I don't speak English well. What I will, however, do is just list all of the new info I added:

    1. Compiles with latest ctrulib.
    2. Fixed the thread part with the new method of using Thread in ctrulib
    3. Add Ninjhax 2.7 custom memmap support
    4. SMDH localisation
    5. Fix SMDH reader

    I'd like to know, though, what features would you guys like to see added?

    Github Link: https://github.com/maorninja/GridLauncher

    The GUI works on Rosalina very well, aside from some flickering. Though, we need to add support for it to load .3dsx files. That asshole at Nintendo Homebrew called me an idiot for not using hb menu 2.0, because "Its updated". He might just be one of those Luma fan boys, who says "All other CFW are shit. Use Luma". He also doesn't understand that not everything has to be "official" for it to be good, but oh well. Loading CIA's doesn't work as well, so we need to fix that, though this is only a GridLauncher 2.0 specific bug.

    Also, to avoid above: If anyone is going to say "OH! Use HBL 2.0 if you don't, you fucking suck", just click off this thread, because the more this will be said, the more I will not do it. (Oh, and BTW, Zoogie's post was made before this announcement)

    More developement will be shown at my site, Mario Making Mods, (No, not Koopa Konstruction) found here: http://mariomods.net/thread/120-gridlauncher-2-0#post1047

    Anyways, here comes the long copy pasta:

    Uh, that's something that the dev will have to do.

    The correct way to do this is port gridlauncher using new-hbmenu as a base.

    I never really understood: other than Rosalina support and the fact that it uses the system font, what's the difference?

    Rosalina is designed to work with new-hbmenu. They were developed in tandem.

    new-hbmenu is also superior because it uses the GPU to render, among other things.

    Not trying to pick on you, it's just a suggestion.

    Or, why don't I just make gridlauncher use citro3d instead of shifting to an entire new platform?

    Besides, I like the fact how you can launch 3ds application installed. If there wasn't that annoying nag about updating your 3DS, I would downgrade to 9.6 and install menuhax, so this can be my default home menu.

    Also, I just thought about it: Would you guys like to see this also be a frontend to nds-bootstrap?

    Yes, I like to have an alternative to use the dldi built and gridlauncjer is perfect for that and it will give a feel of backwards compartibility.

    Okay. Also, for this, I want to make it like the old TWLoader, since the current NDS Homebrew compatibility on nds-bootstrap is shit. Yet, the retail compatibility works well.

    Basically, have 0.4.1 as one cia, and 0.0.3 as another.

    There is a dldi build as prerelease on nds-bootstrap's github (dunno what version is), but is the one before retail support came out.

    Can't run FBI through or any homebrew cia's on it but I'm able to run some of my backup games through it and my injected gba games aswell and hide them off my friendslist.That could come in handy.

    Yours from the github here https://github.com/maorninja/GridLauncher It works with Rosalina and I can press home on it but closing it like that will freeze on the closing software screen sometimes or cause an error.

    Also running 3dsx files are broken.So far I tested doom and halo revamped.However I can run my CIA games with it and when they launch through it they don't pop up on the friends list.
