    Sorry for the potentially confusing title!

    I am currently learning C, and would like to know how useful a Launcher.dat that could launch other Launcher.dats (obviously not named the same) be for everyone?

    If so, here's some things I have planned out:

    - MSETT support
    - NINJHAX support
    - Possible CIA
    - Nice Launcher selection menu (Won't be a solid colour)
    - ???

    Let me know what you think!

    I was just talking about this with someone the other day, i would REALLY love this, a small UI with DPad-Selection on all .dat-files on root would totally do the trick.

    I would definitely use it on my n3ds if some homebrews are ported to downgraded mset :)

    To be honest, I think it probably won't be long until launcher.dat as a whole are sorta a thing of the past. I certainly wouldn't mind having a tool for this out there (the more the better really) but I think the number of users that will use this over the next few months is probably going to start shrinking more and more, as more things are ported over to .cia and/or .3dsx with things like pasta cfw, ninjhax, and potentially rxtools being able to make use of these formats, the launcher.dat format will probably mostly be used for people trying to initially set up their exploits, and that's about it.

    Well... your average rxTool or Gateway-Launcher won't be in CIA or 3DSX for a long time due to the way they work, cfw here ninjhax there, those tools are still only working whenever a fairly high vuln is triggered so the best you could hope for are working CIAs of it once you ARE in Gatewaymode and even that not with the current features of it.
    Besides, if you got 2 or 3 different NAND-Partitions for cfw, rx and GW probably, there's no easy way of switching between them and profiting from the features of said other launcher, with this tool it would be going into options, leaving them, and reloading your exploit, which -to me at least- became second nature.

    Yeah... that's pretty much the whole point behind this thread, letting you choose BETWEEN multiple Launchers on starting your exploit... so, yeah, you're right? Whateveriduneven...

    It will be useful ATM as no current CFWs is perfect yet. lotsa plus and minus in between CFWs, hence the ability to choose would be definitely useful.

    definitely will be obsolete once we have the perfect CFW soon™

    That's a deal breaker for me. Solid colors are my bread and butter.

    If you were able to make the loader properly to launch into whichever cfw(or whatever) you want with a simple list selection it would be very popular, even if it was for a short time like some people are saying. I just think it would be VERY hard to achieve the simplicity. If you can then awesome, do it.
