    Hello, I recently came into a problem, it seems like NTRCFW only launches plugins if you open the app from home menu, APT_appjump doesn't. So my question is:

    Is it possible to return to home menu, and make it auto launch an application with some syscall?
    (Just like going to home menu config in the top left corner and clicking system settings. The menu will scroll to system settings app and launch it.)
    If not possible, do you know how to launch an app and make its plugin load?

    why
    You mean like normally switching games? like for example. I have 2 games with plugins. I launch one, loads fine. I want to switch to the other one, and it hangs on the 3DS splash screen.

    This?

    No, using the syscall APT_Doappjump doesn't load the plugin for the game being launched.

    I noticed there is a similar, possibly related, bug in the Gateway Cheat Menu. If you open the Home Menu in the middle of a game with codes enabled and open the Friends List, close out of the Friends List and return to the game, then open the Cheat Menu, the codes that display will be from a different game's .txt file.

    I don't have an answer to your question, but I just wanted to point out that cell9 has stopped working on NTR and left the community.

    I bypass this by loading a stock app in between games. Example: I play Pokemon AS with a cheat plugin on NTR CFW, exit the game, activate the camera by pressing L+R, Exit with X, load new game,load NTR+Game plugin = Success. Oh, I also hold "L" while loading the game.

    EDIT: No idea how I figured this out. I was originally trying to switch games while using the NTR Viewer and it works for both instances. ;D

    No, it doesn't has to be with ntr crashing, it is a different thing

    I see, you're talking about switching apps directly. :D

    Just like FBI launches a title, with syscalls. (If someone wants to know, launching the gamecard with TID 0, won't load the plugin. Using the card TID will)
