    July 11th is drawing near and I want to know what homebrew to put on my SD.
    I know that custom themes will be possible, but aside from that, not much. So, here are my questions.
    Can I set Play Coin count?
    Can I install CIAs?
    Can I boot to CFWs?
    Thanks in advance! Any replies will help a lot with my preparation! (I have to pass the time somehow... )

    Outlook hazy, try again later.

    Edit:as far as an actual answer, smea has said that it won't have the same level of access (though that may have changed since he said it) so the likely answer to all 3 items you listed is a no.

    Why can't people just wait thats like asking if it will rain next week and when it does how much rain will there be? Just wait for it to rain then you will find out -__-

    Crystal ball says no.
    Why? Ninjhax 2.0 will be limited (as said by smea himself) and I believe the CFW entrypoints have been patched. Time will tell though.

    You shouldnt ask possibilities here, they always make those shitty jokes about crystal balls. You could ask smea on twitter. He has given an answer in twitter for those questions an the answer is no

    Smea said that he had an idea to do romhacking on NinjHax 2.0. However, dont hold your breath because he really doesnt care about that such of thing.

    NINJHAX and CFW are unrelated, it's only used as a convenient entry point for some CFW since many people already have Cubic Ninja and there aren't many known entry points. However the CFW themselves don't work past 9.2, they make use of kernel exploits that no longer work. So the answer to 2 and 3 are definitely no. It seems the play coin setter works the same way as custom themes (editing the SD card extdata) so it should still be possible.

    Thanks a lot for the helpful comments! So after reading them, here's what I could catch.
    Play Coin Setter probably works. (But isn't the Play Coin data stored on NAND, rather than SD extdata?)
    CFWs probably not. (But wasn't Pasta a simple memory patch?)
    And for CIA installing, I just want to install legit CIAs of card games I have. Would legit CIAs work? Would SaveDataFiler work? (I guess probably not, though, because it's an unsigned CIA itself...)
    Still, so many questions...
    And sorry if I sound impatient or sceptical.

    The only reason you get "those shitty jokes about a crystal ball" is because no one here is a mind reader. There's only one person who (might) be able to properly answer the questions, and that's the guy who is working on said exploit. Reason I say might for him even, as there's still the possibility that something might not work as expected, or a different exploit might be discovered while working on it.

    When you guys ask these jackassy questions, do you actually believe we're psychic or have access to unknown knowledge from the future?

    Ask smealum

    I know... But I've asked smea several times and he didn't respond. And he's on GBAtemp too! So he can chime in anytime!

    From what I know, you *should* be able to set the play coins.

    In Los Santos, GTA: San Andreas.
    I'm into NINJHAX 2.0 mostly for cool homebrew. Hell, I can't pay for those cheap 3DS games on the eshop, and every time I do, I get bored with them about a day later.
    That's why I like homebrew, to play LEGIT out of region game carts, and to make my OWN games! :D
    At first I thought that I could pirate stuff, but I found out. NO! Then, I saw why I should pay for games, because if I don't, the company LOOSES money!
    It should be out on maybe saturday or sunday, if all goes well. Now, I have homebrew on my SD Card, I have a TON of em', I even have Pasta and FBI, Mostly to run my backup games.
    Just be PATIENT!!! It's just around the corner. The best way to make the wait go by faster, is to just not worry about it. Maybe check on saturday. If it isn't out, then just check sunday.

    Not to go off on yet another piracy debate, but its kinda hard for the companies to lose money on items they wouldn't have otherwise sold. Also FWIW, of the people I know that do pirate, many of them own significantly more legitimate games than the people who don't pirate.

    I don't want to pirate! I just want to install CIAs of card games I own. Why? Because eShop isn't supported in my region. But just one more day until Ninjhax!

    Agreed. About 90% of the roms I own are from my own cartridge dumps, and ive only backed up a little over half the games I have. Truthfully, mh4 and the jap version of dbz budoken (or whatever) are the only roms I have that I never purchased.

    Edit, I take that back, I forgot I installed some Kirby game the other day. Also, Im downloading hyrule warriors when it comes out.
