    UPDATE DEC 10
    Works with firm 11.9.0-42!

    After about 8 months of Seedminer's existence, I thought it was a good time for a sale. So here you have it: a completely free variant of Seedminer called Frogminer! Yes, the name is silly but this is not a joke!

    https://jisagi.github.io/FrogminerGuide/
    (thanks to Eip, Kuma, and Jisagi of Nintendo Homebrew Discord for putting this guide together)

    Q&A
    Q: How is this different from Seedminer?
    A: It uses homebrew to inject a new dsiwarehax game (Flipnote Studio) into a DSi system title instead of an eshop DSiware. This allows it to be free of charge.

    Q: DSi System Title? Can this brick?
    A: No, the title we use is DS download play and it is completely non-essential, like the Health & Safety app. You could delete DS dlp and the 3DS wouldn't care. Still, you can easily restore DS dlp after Frogminer with the included Frogtool.3dsx.

    Q: Wait, this isn't in the Plailect Guide, how can we trust it?
    A: It is in the Plailect Guide now!
    https://3ds.hacks.guide/installing-boot9strap-(frogminer).html

    Q: Why is "Frog" in the name? That frightens me.
    A: Because the Flipnote Studio mascot is this little fella:
    Frog.
    And now, by proxy, he is the mascot of Frogminer (with Lenny's blessing). ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Is it possible to get the otherapp payload if I'm on 11.8.0-41J and the highest it lets you go is 11.7.0-41J?

    The 11.7 payload works with 11.8. I'll see about getting that info added to the guide.
    Thanks! I've been trying to getting free seedminer to work for months so it's a relief to finally find a way. :D

    Is it possible for Nintendo to remove steeldiver from eshop and prevent this process? (Not that they're smart enough to do anything about this)
    I guess in that case, the user will need their own entrypoint for homebrew like oothax, etc. For as long as they don't act, this is truly an amazing method!

    Maybe temporarily, but the movable.sed allows you to modify *any* eshop downloaded game's save file.

    And when they do buy one, they should download Steel Diver: Sub Wars immediately.

    And to anybody else that's on the fence about Frogminer, download that game ASAP.
    (don't download the 4.1 update though).

    This is really great. Free cfw on the latest version. Though i would expect 11.9 or some eshop game patch to be rolled out any day now.

    My house... almost everytime.
    Unless they pull out Steel Divers: Sub Wars and put a pre-patched version, there isn't any other way Nintendo could patch the Steelminer part without a system update, and then... it could be fixed as it was fixed before when the 11.7.0 and he 11.8.0 got out.

    The funny thing is, seedminer has been free for Japan, Ninty's biggest region, since June and they haven't pulled Steel Diver in that time period.
    Doesn't mean they won't pull it now with the freeness going worldwide, but I have a feeling they might look the other way again.
