    Asking this because its used to access most files on the sd card such as code.bin for rxtools or some sort.

    I'm pretty sure you'd have to set a payload to run a .3dsx due to it only running the bin file. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    But why do this when menuhax can coldboot into Homebrew/CFW?

    no reason, just wondering that it couldnt be used during the ninjhax era for Ninjahax 1.1a and b

    well I'm pretty sure it's not as simple as pointing it towards the payload...

    also, only Cubic Ninja can run ninjhax 1.1b (unless someone else got it running with a different game?). so if you're on 9.0+ you can just use ninjhax 2 and exploits that use it. there's no real point to it.

    I asked this question about MSET and HBL a long time ago, in fact i made a thread about it, it got quite heated at one point, i was told it could possibly be done but nobody would be interested in doing it because it was such an old exploit

    I would like to see it too, but think that ship may have sailed sadly

    I thought the MSET exploit only gave access to ARM9? The Homebrew Launcher needs ARM11.

    Arm9 Is the system's security processor. With arm9 you could easily tell the arm11 to run arbitrary code, even if it's not signed.
