    Hi, so this is kind of an odd request, but as someone who utilizes Pasta and/or Cakes and/or NTR, etc. I was wondering if there was a .cia format file that we can install on our 3DS that will allow us to quickly jump back into the homebrew menu. I only ask because lots of the new homebrew aren't immediately coming out with .cia format versions of their programs. As such, I need to relaunch Cubic Ninja any time I want to use any of these new homebrew even though I'm in a CFW where I can launch all sorts of homebrew applications that already exist in .cia format.

    Really not a big deal, but it would be nice to just choose a program while in a CFW to jump right back into the Homebrew selection screen.

    You can try to edit cubic ninja to jump to qr code loading directly and you can also change the banner

    I think an actual homebrew would be pretty space-efficient too, and would make booting homebrew slightly faster each time as well. It would also be more convenient for Gateway/CFW users so they wouldn't have to swap out cards.

    You can just compile homebrews for ninjhax as cia and you don't need anything more

    Maybe if anyone could find a sort of "Home Menu" exploit and adapt all necessary stuffs to load/run "Homebrew Launcher" as Ninjhax does will be possible!... But, I don't think that will be really possible, and also that would be really unuseful (since you can install and run .cia homebrew versions from Home Menu directly)!

    There is a bunch of hombrew that uses some services that can only be get through the hombrew launcher (until somebody makes hombrew launcher as cia). Only portal3ds comes now to my mind, but probably 3dscraft won't work as cia either

    TubeHax, IronHax?
    Not exactly what you're asking for, but the closest...

    That actually seems like a feasible idea to me, I suppose the same could be done for TubeHax and IronHax (though I wouldn't want Youtube to do that because I legit use Youtube on my 3DS from time to time). Unfortunately, I personally would have no idea of how to do it.
