    Is it possible to do so so when you boot the 3DS you already have NTR functionalities?

    I think I you could do something with a firmware.bin and Luma.

    It's because of how NTR works. Someone more knowledgeable than I (such as Nanquitas) can tell you the exact reason but I do know that it's not possible.

    I'm thinking that it is "userland based" so it can't be run by the arm9 like decrypt9 or godmode9

    Like I said, I don't know the exact reason why.

    Maybe @Nanquitas might know why.

    Gambia, The
    AFAIK NTR runs in RAM so its kinda difficult, but as cell9 said it would be almost the same prodecure as getting ntr to work on extended memory games. you kinda inject it into RAM at boot. anyways its not really worth it. With the source it would be also easier to make ntr working better.
