    I Just got my modded 3ds and it has 3 new programs on it.

    -one is something called NTR and it has a rocket ship, what is the point of it? Should I ever even click on it?

    -one is called Homebrew launcher, is that what I click on to download new modded apps?

    -One is called Luna3ds and it has one of those yellow stars in Mario Galaxy, I understand it is a CFW so does that mean I should click on it right away every time I turn on my 3ds?

    NTR is for game mods, cheats, custom plugins, stuff like that.
    HBL is for homebrew (unofficial software)
    And the last one is probably a CFW updater. You shouldn't have to run anything to enter CFW.

    ohh I see so I am already in the CFW every time I turn on my 3ds? Is NTR and Homebrew apps use for finding that stuff or only for launching it?

    You couldn't even start those tools if you weren't in cfw. The star thingy is starupdater, this can update your Luma directly on 3ds. Ntr works with Plugins, you need to get them around here and on your sd. The homebrew launcher is for everything that comes as .3dsx, and can not be installed directly onto the home menu like .cia files.

    Also important would be to have fbi. Do you have that somewhere? Maybe it's also injected in your health and safety app, check that.

    Homebrew Launcher is for launching homebrew apps like FBI, JK savemanager, emulators. And other things.

    Some homebrew apps can be installed as a cia and will run on the 3ds main menu. Like a real game app ect. Also real games like lets say Pokémon X can be installed as a cia.

    And for emulators. Install the emulator. Turn your system off and put your sd card into your computer. You should see a folder with the emulator. Click the folder and inside it will say Roms. Download the roms on your pc and drag them to the rom folder. Insert your sd back into your 3ds and launch said emulator. Now play

    are the homebrew emulators already in the launcher or should I put the sd card in my computer and download them like I would ROMs? Would I put my sd card in my computer to download Tikishop as well? I only ask because there are already a bunch of things like eshop listed in the homebrew launcher already?

    FBI Was injected into Health and Safety app.

    You have a N3DS, so you should look into VC Injection vs using Emulators / Roms

    CFW auto launches ( arm9loaderhax makes this possible / cfw loaded is Luma3ds )

    The icon with stars is an updater, it will update arm9loaderhax payload as well as luma3ds.

    The icon with an H is homebrew launcher, it's a quick way to access homebrew. Not needed for much other than accessing .3dsx files that don't have CIA install option as mentioned.

    NTR, keep it or use it, it's up to you. I just install it as default options to save the end user time if they want to actually use it.

    tikishop would have to be put on SD card and installed via FBI.

    In homebrew launcher, that's just a patch for normal eshop.

    Tikishop?

    Yes you can download the emulators from here
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/helpful-3ds-homebrew-threads-links-always-updating.400950/

    Read the one you want and follow directions to install. or If it has a QR code use FBI to scan it.


    The only emulator mine came with was Mgba.

    Certian real game cia files you can just install a ticket and download them straight from the eshop. Like Pokémon X.

    Good homebrew apps to have:

    Ciangel

    Freeshop

    Jk's save manager

    For pokemon:

    Phbank

    Pchex++

    He is most likely referring to tikShop. Freeshop is, more often than not, the preferred option.

    so CIAngel is an app similar to freeshop that lets you easily download games?

    Is there a guide or archived post that talks about how to do the VC injection on a New 3DS?

    FreeShop is even better IMO.
