    Hey, guys!

    So, me and @Shadowtrance worked to make a method of being able to inject bigger HB apps in to your system!

    What you will need for the Nintendo Zone injection:
    -Shadowtrance's Decrypt9 nzone version (https://mega.nz/#!mEozGC6B!8EVYungwn8zRgzpgocDqHscaBfm-Zz-JMHE6FqPS8Ww)
    -All of the files you need for D9 anyways (slot keys, etc)
    -My modded version of Universal-Inject-Generator (https://github.com/staticsn0w/Universal-NZ-Injector-Generator)
    -CFW (AuReiNand, Cakes, RxTools, etc)
    -Homebrew CIA you want to inject (<4mb in size or UIG will error out!)
    -A PC

    !!LEAVE ALL FEAR ABOUT YOUR CONSOLE AT THE DOOR. THIS IS OVERWRITING A CORE APPLICATION, AND IF YOU MESS UP, YOU MAY BRICK!!

    Step 1: Go to Decrypt9 and go to SysNAND Options -> NintendoZone Dump
    Step 2: Enter the code and name the file nz.app
    Step 3: Once the dump is finished, press B, and then SELECT to unmount the SD
    Step 4: Download my modded UIG and then extract it with your favorite extractor of choice
    Step 5: Take out your SD and put it in your computer, drag the nz.app to the input folder of the UIG folder you Extracted
    Step 6: Drag the CIA file you want to inject in to the input folder
    Step 7(LINUX/MAC): CD to your UIG dir, then run ./go.sh
    Step 7(WINDOWS): Run go.bat
    Step 8: Drag the banner version of the app to the root of your SD, then rename it to nz.app
    Step 9: Eject your SD from your computer
    Step 10: Insert your SD in to your 3ds, then press B
    Step 11: Go to SysNAND Options -> NintendoZone Inject
    Step 12: Choose nz.app as the file to inject
    Step 13: Reboot and enjoy!

    NOTE: This was for fun and has no real purpose until someone patches the system to allow booting of Nintendo Zone from firmware above 9.9 (I think it's 9.9, but i'm not sure), nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed this small little tutorial :)

    @staticsn0w first, the D9 with the nintendo zone option is just Decrypt9WIP (not D9UI). :P
    You forgot to tag people in the first post. :P
    And the max size will vary depending on region, yes they're different sizes for some reason. lol
    There's also only currently 2 versions of the app too. v0 and v1034.

    And the decrypted app sizes per region is as follows:
    Only available in JPN, USA and EUR apparently. (no KOR, CHN or TWN)

    JPN v0 - 4.93MB
    JPN v1034 - 4.74MB

    USA v0 - 4.93MB
    USA v1034 - 5.53MB

    EUR v0 - 4.93MB
    EUR v1034 - 4.49MB

    It would be more useful if AuReiNand or KeksFW patched it without needing to be on 9.9.

    Oh sorry Shadowtrance :P

    and as for it being just D9 and not D9UI it was an assumption by me lol. Since you made D9UI I thought you would have merged it in to D9UI in a separate branch. And as for the file sizes, should everyone just get the USA v1034 for the most space? Or would they have to use regionfree patch for that :/
