    We all know that you can install the Homebrew Launcher on the Nintendo 3DS with the game known as Cubic Ninja. We also all know that it's hard to find and mostly expensive to get now due to the popularity it's getting because of Homebrew (and because people can make a quick buck out of it). I'm wonder if there will be more supported games in the future that will allow installation of the Homebrew Launcher. Thanks!

    How many 3DS games support AR scanning for things like custom levels? There's the list to start with of likely candidates.

    I know in Tomodachi Life you could scan with QR codes.

    You have to consider that the underlying exploit being used to execute the HomeBrew Launcher will most likely get patched. The game, not so much, because it's only a door into something that's about to be fixed.

    There's currently no need for more games to be used as doors, as once the underlying exploit gets fixed, you'll want to avoid the FirmWare patch that fixes it.

    Well regardless I'm not going to update the firmware. But my problem is that the game to get the launcher is hard to find and expensive now.

    the 3ds exploit is like a PSP save game exploit the runs HBL (and ePSP for vita, VHBL)
    only few games will have them


    there need to be a different game with an exploit so you can run homebrew and they are hard to find

    There is also OR/AS if that becomes a hack point. Well it will be nintendo's biggest embarrassment ever.

    I think there's a huge misunderstanding here. The Homebrew Launcher isn't installed to the 3DS. It's run from Cubic Ninja.
    You must have Cubic Ninja in at all times for the exploit. If you eject the card in the Homebrew Launcher, the 3DS complains that you took out Cubic Ninja.

    I know that it has to be in the 3DS while using Homebrew Launcher, but I'm asking if there would be more games you could use it from in the future.

    Smealum already has to rewrite Ninjhax for every new firmware version that comes out for each region. I think that's more than enough work out of him.
    I don't think we'll see another exploit from Smea as long as he supports Ninjhax.
