1. Play any 3DS game you want, eShop-only games included (CFW)
2. Is breathing worth it?
3. Custom firmware - allows unsigned apps to run and be installed. There are several, rxtools for old 3ds and 2ds, cakes and ReiNAND for new 3ds (rxtools works on n3ds also)
4. SysNAND is your real system, it has to be on 9.2 or below otherwise CFW will no longer work. EmuNAND is your emulated system, it is where you will install your games and it can be updated (to 10.3 on old 3ds and 9.5 on new 3ds). It runs off the SD card instead of your nand.

Can i participate?

1 - I already have a N3DSXL 9.9-20U with HomeMenuHax 2.5 working. I'm using a 4GB SD but i want to switch to a 16GB one (already have it). With all the downgrade fuss (not doing right now, waiting more stability), should i downgrade with my already-working HMenuHax and then switch?
2 - Should i stay with FAT32?

Thanks!

Is it possible, now with everything new and recent that has been going on with the 3DS to possibly run dumped DSi Ware games such as Four Swords?

Yep you can install any DSi game. Not as easy as 3DS games, there's a number of extra steps. Search the flashcarts & CFW forum for info on DSi games.

  • VartioArtel @ VartioArtel:
    Oh some of you are actually looking at the chatbox via the main page and not the corner tab
    , that might explain it a bit
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    It's on every page.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    It's nice tho
  • VartioArtel @ VartioArtel:
    When I said main page I meant the gbatemp.net/chat page not the site head page.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    There's a chat page?
  • VartioArtel @ VartioArtel:
    *points at top of the side*
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Oh nice!
  • IanSkinner1982 @ IanSkinner1982:
    Yeah, it just leads to here.
  • VartioArtel @ VartioArtel:
    Still the chat but different perspective.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    So. You could disable chat, but have the chat open as a page?
  • IanSkinner1982 @ IanSkinner1982:
    Probably.
  • VartioArtel @ VartioArtel:
    My issue comes with the corner tab version which looks like it wasn't really thought out as well.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Yes it works. You can disable chat but have it as it's own page.
  • IanSkinner1982 @ IanSkinner1982:
    I think I am only really going to use this in its own window.
    +1
  • IanSkinner1982 @ IanSkinner1982:
    Otherwise it's too small.
  • Arekkusuda @ Arekkusuda:
    @DinohScene shut up gay
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    It'd be cool if users could get a notification (within the tab itself) when someone else replies to the chat. Useful for us who would like to have the Chat as a separated tab.
  • VartioArtel @ VartioArtel:
    To me it's not the size it's the small issues x-x

  • IanSkinner1982 @ IanSkinner1982:
    Oh cool I'm the top chatter.
  • 64bitmodels @ 64bitmodels:
    veri cool chat
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    @ STAFF: What's the possibility of:

    1.- Limiting every user's embedded pictures per day? In that way users will be prevented from spamming the chat sectin with pictures. This would prevent the cool feature from being disabled due "Spamming"
    2.- Adding sounds to the chat. Like:
    I mean... if there's Facebook Reaction icons already used... why not MSN sound notifications?
  • IanSkinner1982 tempBOT:
    IanSkinner1982 rolls 1d6 and gets 3 (3).
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    YO!
    JuanMena @ JuanMena: YO!
