NTR CFW 3.2 has been released!

What's New:
1 Experimental Real-Time Save feature.

Important Notice for Real-Time Save feature
This is an experimental feature and have some limits in current version:
1 For most games, save/load must be started in the game scene, do not save/load in movies, menus, etc.
2 The real-time savegame is only valid in current instance of game, the savegame won't be loadable after the game was closed or console was turned off.
3 Load/save must be performed in the Home Menu while the game is paused, do not return to game until the operation is finished. (it may take about 30 seconds)
4 Some games are totally incompatible with this feature.

https://github.com/44670/BootNTR/releases/tag/3.2

[BugFix] Fixed issues that cause NTR crashes when putting unrelated file or hidden file into the 'plugin' directory.
[Feature] Added 'Game Plugin Config Menu', which allows users configure game plugins in the NTR Menu.
[BugFix] Fixed compatibility problems with Mejoras Mask 3D and Super Smash Bros, these games crashes after opening NTR Menu in previous versions.
[BugFix] Improved the stability of the BootNTR.

Release Page:

change log for NTR CFW 3.0

* added old 3ds and 2ds support.

* added BootNTR.cia loading method. cubic ninja is no longer required.

* all region supported, most emunand version supported.

* improved stability
Thanks @willdunz

Thanks @zoogie!

Here's a proper release page
https://github.com/44670/BootNTR/releases/tag/3.2
and a place to report issues
https://github.com/44670/BootNTR

I'm using it myself and it works well BUT I can't boot into my retail cartridge... so... so far so interesting. It works in emunand and it had NTR debugger built in.

I cannot post a link to the thing cuz it might be illegal, but, making a weibo account doesn't even verify your email, so, register, login with BS email, forget all and download BOTH files!

Sidenote: Apparently they have a cheat section, so, goodbye spider ar, hello NTR.

Good news indeed, but Google translate is a little bit hard to understand. :rofl2:
This is a mod version of NTR CFW. :glare:
Is the install process the same as normal NTR CFW? :wacko:

Yes! ANNNDD There's also a CIA option which I'm using that allows for booting without CN. It's legit NTR btw.

When you said CIA booting, I was thinking of something completely different... But this is neat too I guess.
Sorry bout dat.

There is mention of GW in the thread that suggests it can be ran from Gateway mode or from any other CFW, does this mean we can use both together to get all the benefits of NTR-CFW while still able to use the Gateway cart, and CIA installation etc? Or does it now reboot the 3DS and kick you out of CFW (it didn't before, which was how it was possible to use it inside Pasta)
If so, that would be pretty big news, as NTR-CFW is no doubt the most complex hack/mod anyone's done on the 3DS, it's able to do things no other CFW can, such as plugin support. Being able to use all that with the GW would be awesome :)
Especially with a BootNTR CIA installed in GW mode, running it would be very quick and easy.

I can use rxTools EMU and NTR at the same time. It's really good.

Booting the CIA on ReiNAND N3DS, it says:
BootNTR: 2.4
patching svr check then freeze :D

Edit: It works on the second try :D WOW! N3DS 9.5 ReiNAND Emunand

Edit 2: Everything seems to work well :D

Yes, Google Translate of the weibo page says "If the crash in patching svc check or other steps. Please forced shutdown restart and try again." :P

Looks like the official NTR-CFW to me.

@OctopusRift I'm trying to sign up on weibo but it wants to send an activation code to my phone number. My country isn't an option in the country list. :( Edit: Nevermind I found the option to change it to email. Edit2: I need to sign up to Baidu now. HELP HOW DO I DO THIS. It wants a Chinese phone number. Got it, I must've pressed the wrong button or something, I have no idea what to do with these moonrunes :P

LayeredFS plugin for o3DS on "modern" firmware ranges? I might actually use this now...
I love it so far. You just boot up the CIA "BootNTR" in emunand and BOOM, you have layered in 9.9 O3ds

I wonder how it enables that while on 9.6 native_firm (as that's what is currently active when on 9.9 emunand). I always thought it had to use exploits to gain kernel access which were long patched in the 9.6 native firm being used by CFW/Gateway that uses emunand. Perhaps the things that made it work was gained just from having the needed service permissions from exheader of the new CIA of it. But I thought arm11 exploit would still be needed for it to work properly. (like plugin support and stuff). Then again, I never really took a close look at NTR because I only have an o3DS and NTR 1.1 won't run on anything past 4.x on o3DS. So I didn't try messing with it. :P

Working fine here on N3DS with 9.5 GW EmuNAND!
Only issue I've found is that when I choose "Clean mode" in the CFW menu, the screen goes black and seems to hang.

I dunno what that does either.
