    Does anyone know how to make a legit spider.cia ?

    I want to try installing spider on New 3DS sysnand so that we can use that as a more 'permanent' entrypoint vs OoT3D currently...

    Do you guys know of any reason why this wouldn't work?

    I thought about that, but no it probably won't be a good idea. In order to test though a hard mod will be needed and a backup of your sysnand. Better yet since GW 3.1 you can try it on emunand and if it doesn't work than you know it probably won't work on sysnand.

    I have a NAND mod for new 3ds so testing is no problem for me! :)

    you would want to uninstall the skater browser, luckily iirc browser is the only system title you can uninstall from devmenu
    then build a spider .cia, i doubt its going to work, the n3DS home screen will likely only be set up to use skater, but basically download this

    and do this

    PS that's US console specific, check 3D brew for TitleID/version numbers for other regions

    i thought about it too, i thought we could load it from devmenu, but someone said that you can't run applets from devmenu, so i guess you won't be able to load it.

    well the only way it would be of any use is if we can launch it as the browser applet in sysnand, otherwise we still cant launch it without OOT to boot into gateway mode

    Does the spider cia have to be signed?

    yeah and it would be signed, it just depends on if the n3DS will even load up the spider browser in place of skater....again as i said its unlikely, but i haven't tried it myself

    If the spider browser works in Emunand would it be possible to run the ram hacks (like the pokemon injector or ACNL/Shuffle (dunno about the first one but the latter two arent working on o3ds Emunand sadly)
    Or cant we predict that yet.

    nope, spider cannot be used to replace skater, unless you modded it in which case it wouldn't work in sysnand

    Can confirm, installing spider on a N3DS doesn't work.

    It doesn't break anything, but you can't launch the web browser. Clicking the icon results in a message instructing you to perform a system update.

    An idea popped into my head :-)

    Would it be possible to make a cia like the mSD-Card Management on the N3DS (an extra icon) which can start the old spider browser (so its not interfering with the Skater Browser)?

    But why would you do that instead of just running whatever code you want as a cia itself? The msd one is unsigned because it's rebuilt.
