    Which one is better/more convenient to run? What features does FreeMultiPatcher have that NTR doesn't vice versa?

    Also I'll be running v10 emunand on o3DS.

    Thanks!

    NTR is of sorts, a CFW. It doesn't run any games and can be run parallel to other CFWs, but the benefit of NTR is that it enables cheats as well as shop spoofing if you have the plugins.

    Multipatcher is easier to use and doesn't fail as often as NTR to boot, but it's limited in the scope of things it can do (gives you shop use only).

    Does Free Multi Patcher also make the card slot region free like NTR?

    Probably? But you could use RegionFree homebrew for the card slot if it didn't. Sounds like NTR is the program for you however.

    Freemultipatcher only allows eshop access on lower firmwares and to only view titles from other regions, rxtools has built in regionfree for cia, not sure about carts but ill test when i get an exploitable 3ds

    Gambia, The
    FreeMultiPatcher allows you to use Out of region cardriges and CIAs, but it has some problems with out of region dlc, and games that need the language emulation plugin from ntr, to work on an other region. Also it allows you to use the eshop on all devices thta have 9.0.0-20 or higher, without the need of a pc to apply the patch manual.
    With the next release it will also allow you to create an use own patch files, but it doesn't allow you to cheat like ntr at the moment.
    Both application could be use at the same time, but ntr will fail to but(and you have to wait a moment to (5-10sec) to have a higher boot rate.
    If you are fast enough to start the cfw and the free multi patcher, to apply the patches after the boot, you also wont need unwrap all installed games every time. After that start NTR, and you have nearly full regionfree.
    Also starting a application using the touchscreen is faster than using the buttons.

    Before cell9 fixes NTR 3.0 @ v10.1's incompatibility, there's only FMP you can use.

    On o3DS, there's not that much point in Free Multi Patcher, since rxTools works with latest emuNAND version.
