Currently web applets can be reassigned by placing exefs.nsp in the titles folders. For example:

0100000000001013 - mypage
010000000000100D - photo
010000000000100B - shop
0100000000001003 - controller

If the tinfoil exefs.nsp is placed in these folders (010000000000100B) instead we can launch the tinfoil nro by using different home screen buttons. I wish to reassign my photo web applet (I never use it), so that it launches something else (sx.nro) - and wondered if there was a tool to create these exefs.nsp files - much like we can use nro2nsp to create forwarders (doesn't work for web applets), is there a tool similar for creating these web applets to forward to our nro files?

good question

I actually found out that's how emuiibo works - so these files are just compiled with devkit pro - and you just create an nsp file and rename it to exefs.nsp, also you need to put an boot flag file in the folder (for example, put in folder - sxos/titles/010000000000100D/exefs.nsp)

I am trying to figure out how to forward eshop to hbmenu on my banned switch without linked account. if you tap on eshop icon, it will ask you to link a account.

I'm really new to the scene, was looking to do this to my News and eShop titles as well. Can you point me to a guide or documentation on how to create an nsp file with devkit pro? I'm relatively comfortable with programming and the terminal already, although I'm not quite sure what to do after installing devkit pro?

I spoke to some other devs about replacing news and they think that because other applets interact with it (it shows it's contents on the lock screen) it would fatal unless you reimplemented it well enough give those processes fale information. I know from my own experimentation that if you want to mitm news you also need to give it the boot2 flag.
For creating exefs.nsps I'd look at dvdnx to see how it does it or the sysmodule example on switchbrew's github. https://github.com/averne/dvdnx

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
