    Hi!
    So I was wondering whether you can still access homebrew via oot3dhax on 11.5. (I'm on EU). Main question would be whether this guide (https://3ds.guide/homebrew-launcher-(alternatives).html) is still viable. Anyone tried and if so, did you succeed? Thanks for the help

    It works on n3ds 11.5 EU. O3ds is broken. Either way you need a powersaves.

    and btw, .smdh is part of older .3dsx files. You need both (well, you don't NEED to use both, but it was made that way). Newer .3dsx files just have the .smdh part included. You won't be hacking 11.5 this way though. You'll just be able to use userland homebrew.

    EDIT: But if you know anybody with a hacked console, you don't need a powersaves. Use the hacked console and a save file manager to setup your OOT cart. And as many people here would like to argue with me, it's even easier via the Gateway menu if you know someone who uses a GW.

    Did anyone figure this out? I have the latest payload from the homebrew site but powersaves doesn't recognize it when I rename it...

    I don't think this is possible on 11.5 stock N3DSXL. There are no powersaves, at least that I know of, for anything above 11.2.

    I think if you already have a method to open homebrew, then it might be possible to patch the hax with the new payload.

    Some people have managed to do this it seems from my searching around but no one appears willing to share the updated save, including yellow8...

    You need a premade .sav file for PowerSaves, there isn't an official one for the latest FW so you may need someone to help you out by installing oot3dhax on their cart with homebrew and dump the .sav for you to use.

    I just wanted to chime in and make sure it's clear that, while oot3dhax and other alternative exploits can conceivably be used on an 11.5 N3DS to run homebrew, it cannot be used to install CFW.

    Yeah if only someone was willing to do that... I'm sure it would help a lot of people.
