    UPDATE 2: added 0.3b with bugfix, removed 0.3

    UPDATE 2: added 0.3

    - Autoboot (hold A to boot to title selector)
    - Enable/disable autoboot from title selector
    - Autoboot is configurable from 3DS
    - Smdh of selected autoboot title is copied to SD card

    UPDATE: added 0.2 with filters with L/R and X buttons.

    Hi, I'm dropping this here. This is a quick HBL mod that allows booting the titles that appear in the title launcher.

    The idea is to recode it so instead of homebrew, installed titles are shown, but for now this is more convenient than nothing.

    If anyone wants to make a icon for smdh, it'd be welcome.

    Also, if you use Themehax with no button press, don't press the home button if you haven't pressed home BEFORE launching the title (due to sleep mode issue and all) or you'll get a crash. Power button then home works fine.

    Same goes if you try to launch ironhax or any other hax without a previous home button press.

    edit: just seen that if you wait enough, the crash makes the home menu reset, so it will probably work regardless. same if you keep L held long enough.

    ps: this probably won't work in ninjhax 1.x

    SOURCER: https://github.com/suloku/3ds_hb_menu/tree/titlelauncher
    (better compare with vanilla HBL to know what was changed, as I said this is a very quick mod)

    R5 will probably have that ability, but it is very useful, thanks!

    Almost. Now it just needs a backlight control and, well, regionfive + next ninjhax. Maybe I can bug someone... :P

    If anyone's interested, I tried launching "Friends List" and the screens stayed off for a minute or so. Just to save others time if they wanted to launch the icons usually at the top of the home menu.

    I also launched the mysterious "???" that appears. It was, indeed, System Transfer.

    I managed to break the 3D feature by launching System Transfer with this, and now the top screen shows the two images and ups brightness but fails to actually show any 3D. I'll see if I can reproduce it.

    Demo's with 0 play counts won't boot, all I get is a black screen. Man. :unsure::P
    But regardless, this is really convenient!

    Ohohohoho!
    I requested this a while ago. Thanks! :)
    Don't have access to my 3ds yet, as anyone tried launching a demo with it?
    Come one... can't wait to get to my 3DS.

    Wow, you weren't kidding :P

    I'll be thoroughly messing with this tonight or tomorrow, I'll unfortunately be busy most of today. Maybe I can throw it on my 3DS before I get on the plane and screw around on my flight.

    Over There
    GUYS LISTEN
    THIS CAN RUN NINTENDO ZONE
    (which was discontinued if you are on the latest fw)
    Spread the word, I'm not able to test if this can actually connect to HomePass or some leftover NZ hotspots.
    I think I just found something slightly useful.

    Okay, some things.
    1. I launched the Sonic Lost World demo (which starts with 10 uses). When I pressed Home and closed it, it took one away.
    2. I launched the same thing again, this time pressing Power when the game was running. It still took one away.
    3. After draining all of its uses with repeated openings, the screens stayed off the entire time after launching it with this mod.
    4. Like I said earlier, launch "???" which is System Transfer, then back out of it. Strange things happen with the 3D...

    Source will be on my github in a bit, I had to go earlier.
    Also, as I said, I want to list titles, but if r5 will have title launching capabilities, I don't think it's worth it. I'll try asking smea.

    I tried to manually launch its title, but got a black screen. I should try again though, but it is a system title that doesn't appear in the title list hbl fetches, so it probaly has something special and can't be launched as a standalone app. At least you can launch config settings.

    I'm not sure you can lunch specific titles with r5, the reason I think you can is this image:
