    Not too sure whether this counts in the '3DS ROM Hacking, Translations and Utilities' section, but guess I'll find out soon enough :)

    On Christmas day, TWLoader was released, which allowed users to run NDS ROMs without a cartridge or flashcart. In the settings menu there is a setting which, when you run a game, makes the LED glow loads of different colours. This keeps the notification LED glowing loads of different colours until you either turn of the 3DS or exit to the home menu.

    I wanted to ask, is there any way to make the LED glow different colours or single colours when you want, and if so is there possibly a utility that allows you to do so? Of course, I am looking into this myself, and I am going to see if there is a config for this somewhere in the sysNAND.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you want your system to brick, then yes, you can.

    :facedesk:
    @MarcusD has made it pretty damn clear that if you mess with the MCU properly you will NEVER get a brick. Yellows8 just made bad code and bricked

    yls8 was just on a super fucking ancient firmware which must've had a broken queue which in end made it vulnerable to bricks. Starting with 8.1 (9.0 on non-J firmware) is 100% safe, because Ninty got their shit together, and I didn't bricked by repeatedly spamming LED patterns (how the hell can it be invalid anyways? it's just fucking LED intensity data!), so 4.x ftw!

    Thanks a lot @akira123! I was looking for something like this. I'm going to download this and test it out, and hopefully add button combinations that could activate different colour schemes e.g. pressing L+START gives you fading rainbow colours or DPAD_UP+Y gives you purple or something like that :) Thanks again!
