    this app runs hbmenu.nro from the root of your sd card
    it's based on nx-hbloader https://github.com/switchbrew/nx-hbloader

    Last Update: 10/Feb/2019

    hbmenu.zip works on all versions (videorecording = manual)
    hbmenu_5.x+.zip works on firmwares equal or higher than 5.0.0 (videorecording = auto)

    it's completely made with 'legal' nca/nsp builder and it's a PoC of "hacBrewPack"

    (insert wacky and amusing place here)
    I just looked into it, don't think it's legal.

    I think OG is right.
    This NSP looks like it's rebuild with AuthoringTool

    Trying to figure out if this file is so far illegal or not.

    do me a favor and show us the tool before telling us it that it's legal.
    There's currently no way to rebuild a Program-NCA without authoringtool. Not even SimonMKWiis "NCABuilder" can do that yet.
    Editing the SDK Version, removing xmls etc is easy

    well you and your friends can't build program nca, it's doesn't mean it's impossible
    and i added bunch of proofs, if you have any proof that it's made with authoring tool just post it
    if not, it'll be good to stop shit post

    the tool will be released soon "hacBrewPack"

    removing the xmls is possible by rebuilding the nsp with nspbuild.py
    "switching sections" can also be done with authoringtool
    zeroing all sigs is pretty common already, even with authoringtool
    replacing the SDK Version is pretty easy with Hex Editor (or editing a dll in authoringtool).

    Do me a favor and show me the Tool you just made for this. Thanks

    I've analyzed the proof I got sent. I will give @The-4n the benefit of the doubt right now.
    He seem to really know what he is doing.

    because sx os doesn't provide enough svc perms, whether it doesn't patch enough or it blocks some of them for protecting itself (ChoiDujourNX black screen is a proof of it)

    nsps work fine on reinx, rajnx, and hekate/atmosphere with sig patches (and of course proper hekate ini)

    Good work, you make some very useful tools which we all benefit from. It's always nice to share, thank you :)

    Ignore the negative people

    In this case, it's understandable. He had no ill intent, I spoke with him in PMs. It's just to protect the site from possible DMCA issues.
