    dev menu is meant to be used on a dev unit (as the dev unit is built alot different than the actual 3ds youll probably have to do alot to get it working)

    DevMenu won't work on stock/cfw unless you have a version specifically for it.
    Instead I highly recommend you just use FBI, it does all the main things you could want from DevMenu, and more.

    It was leaked and installable for retail units. It's perfectly fine to be ran on retail as well.

    Dev menu will run just like FBI, just without having to use slowhax or fasthax.

    so essentially its better as it doesnt need an exploit once installed?

    Not as many features, but the extra things FBI has you can't even use with the access we have.

    Not much they can do. A lot of people have it. It's like freeshop, they took it down, but it's easy to obtain.

    The dev menu CIA is not signed, so you need a CFW or a Hax that disable sign checking to ron it.

    No, you don't. A version of it was leaked that's a legit CIA that can be installed with only arm11 kernel.

    I think there's a legit CIA thread there.

    No, because it isn't a legit CIA. The only way to get a legit CIA is have it preinstalled on the console. So like the MK8 bundle 3DS can make a legit MK8 CIA. The Pokemon bundles can make legit Pokemon CIAs and so forth. A kiosk console with devmenu and testmenu preinstalled have made our legit dev CIAs.

    interesting and by that you mean "skeleton key cias" which can be installed on any console rather than the one its downloaded to?

    Never heard of skeleton key cias. But yeah, pretty much. It only works with the ones that are preinstalled with the console.
