    1. Ok first, get yourself the devmenu somewhere(Sorry, no links will be provided, Google is your friend). It should be named 3dsDevKit by BigBlueBox.. Also please upgrade your GW to 2.6 first..

    2. Extract the 3dsDevKit zip file(using WinRar/Winzip/7zip whateva)

    3. RENAME the file DevMenu.csu to DevMenu.3ds(there should only be one inside)

    4. Put this file in your MicroSD, just like how you put in any normal 3ds game.

    5. ???

    6. Profit!!

    Enjoy

    This has been tested and confirmed to work, so please make sure you did everything correctly if it does not work..


    FAQ:

    1. How to install CIA files?

    Put it in your BIG SD card, launch devmenu, select import, and you are good to go.

    2. I got errors while installing CIA.

    Seems like there are some CIA files(especially those released by BBB) will cause such error. Make your own CIA :)

    3. Forced to restart

    Not getting this at all. Reinsert your SD card, make sure your SD card is inserted properly and firmly, then try again.

    4. Can I install the devmenu_2x.cia?
    5. When I launch DevMenu it shows Mario/some random game instead

    Try cutting everything from the MicroSD, then put back only the DevMenu, I suspect is caused by fragmentation error. If this method work, please cut everything out, then paste everything back in again.

    What is the difference between that older version, and the newer version available?
    Would it not work for some reason, or do damage to the (Emu)Nand?

    Edit: Ah, because you need the .csu. Nvm!

    you should get a bunch of folders assuming you downloaded "SDK.DevKit.Tools.3DSWare.3DS.INTERNAL-BigBlueBox"

    unfortunately only 2.3.4 contains the devmenu csu file, the rest have cia versions and cannot be installed with the 2.3.4 version

    Does the DevMenu show up as Super Mario Bros 3 (NES) for anyone else? Just want to make sure I have the right thing and I'm doing it right .. also the .CIA roms go on the big SD card now yes?

    With the SDK-2.3.4 Devmenu.csu (renamed to Devmenu.3ds), will we be able to install the SDK-6.2.0 Devmenu.csi?

    If anyone wants to install the devMenu to the menu: you can use that devMenu (the .csu from BBB) to install the devMenu_2x.cia that got leaked some days ago.

    Rename the Devmenu.csu from SDK-2.3.4 to Devmenu.3ds, and via the Devmenu, install your beloved .cia files...
    No rocket science man.

    Yes, but for the moment only the DLC's of Mario Bros. 2 have been dumped.

    Hope the DLC's of Fire Emblem will be dumped soon.
