    Would it be possible to modify the flags of a SMDH of a cia to have it appear on the Home Menu?

    Ex. Modify microSD Management's SMDH to have it appear on the Home Menu.

    I don't see why that wouldn't work

    Someone already made a CIA of that, it's out there on one of those sites.

    Definitely possible, @Apache Thunder has done this before. It can even be installed on an old3DS.

    I tried recently to install on of the ones he made on my new3DS, but it just threw up an error when attempting to install it.

    I think perhaps I was supposed to uninstall the original first, but I was unsure and didn't want to fuck around with files installed to NAND.

    Alternatively, you can make a custom badge to launch any system app.

    Never heard this before, can you elaborate or link to a tutorial?

    funny enough someone else was asking about this a couple of days ago, here is a quick summary of what we did to make the homescreen version of the micro sd management app
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/microsd...ng-on-old3dss-too.383892/page-10#post-6915014

    the process would probably be similar for other system apps, although micro sd management was the only one I could see being useful of the homescreen


    that said this method of making badge shortcuts would probably be easier by the sounds of it
