    I'm hacking a 3DS for a nephew who is very young and might mess up with the options in the menu by pressing Select. Is there any way to disable it?

    Use a boot manager before Luma that tells the 3DS to turn off if SELECT is held down.

    You could go with SaltFW. It's a barebones stripped down Luma3DS without a config menu.

    I would recommend you use saltFW. It has no config menu or anything.

    3DSafe still allows access to the Luma menu once the PIN has been entered is SELECT is held immediately after entering the PIN.

    The problem with this is what if you need to access the Luma menu for some reason? You'd have to copy a different Luma payload to the SD card. Also, updating Luma would overwrite the modified version with one which allows access to the setup menu.

    I think this is probably the most practical solution. You can still update Luma, and the main A9LH payload can be set to a boot manager which if SELECT is held will launch the A9LH test payload which powers the 3DS off.

    Updated post XD :
    Yeah, i know, still the same problem... But, the config file of Luma3DS is on the sd card, and is the same for all 3DS.
    But, indeed, i also recommend to use saltFW.

    Luma already has a PIN lock feature, but it locks access to the 3DS as a whole. I think a good feature addition to Luma would be to. Have the PIN lock only the settings while still allowing access to boot the 3DS. @Aurora Wright

    I think I'm going with this one. I don't know how to compile though :wacko:. It would be great since I installed him the SDless A9LH so his 3DS can turn on in case he messes up with the SD card, and I could replace the compiled Luma version on his 3DS's CTRNAND too. I don't think he'll have any need to change any of the default menu options at all, so this would be a pretty good solution!

    I'm m actually now considering forking Luma and implementing this feature myself. If I do, I'll submit a pull request to hopefully get it integrated into a Luma release.

    There's no way whatsoever in the config menu to make the 3DS inoperable or to cause a brick, the worst you can do is create a PIN I guess.

    I don't think there was any implication that it could cause a brick. I really just meant that it would be inconvenient to have to swap the payload if you substituted it with one which didn't allow any access to the config menu.

    Sorry for digging this up but...I guess the plan to implement that feature was out...Im I right...?
    If thats the case, could someone kindly enlighten me on how to edit the line of code in the "bool shouldLoadConfigMenu = false;", and how would I be able to compile it?
    Thanks in advance ^^

    Okay, so I checked the GitHub of Luma3DS, and I saw a tutorial on how to compile it myself...
    I guess I could try that out, but how would I go about installing Luma3DS into an existing 3D, with an ALREADY existing Luma3DS? Wouldn't they conflict and cause errors?
    Thanks in advance to those out there helping out ^^
    Much appreciated.
    (I'm a noob here...)

    You realize formatting a 3ds console will not remove cfw on it. You just need to download the needed files to the sd card again.

    Its already hacked tho. You do not need to go thru the whole thing of it again. You would want to look at https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup for the final touches to it again.

    ntrboot takes precedence over Luma/bootloaders installed to FIRM0 so I don't know what you're saying here.
