    When I download Homebrew apps and extract them, I put them in my /3ds folder. When I open my Homebrew (soundhax btw) I see foldericons named after the folders I put in. I open the folder and inside is Region Free Launcher. In fact, every folder inside of that has Region Free Launcher. Can anyone help with this??

    The folders inside /3ds should contain folder name.3dsx and folder name.smdh. I believe they can also be called boot.3dsx and boot.smdh. If they're named anything else than the name of the folder or boot.3dsx/boot.smdh, it won't work.
    If you don't have a .smdh file, it won't show an icon or title.

    Thanks, but the app folders I downloaded don't have .3dsx OR .smdh. I'm confused..

    Then you probably downloaded the source code.

    Github can be difficult navigate, you need to find the "releases" button which is where the pre-compiled binaries are linked for downloading.
