I've been doing some research and I didn't find any, not a single homebrew, neither an CIA or an 3ds file. Is it because no one is working on it or is it impossible with the currents exploits? Why no live RAM editor with a CFW with signature checks patched is out yet?

I believe it's because none of the current exploits allow full ARM11 kernel access.

The devs of both KARL and rxTools intend to implement on-the-fly RAM editing.

NTR-CFW 2 allows for full ARM11 kernel access plugins but the plugin sdk has yet to be released. Cell9 suggests it will be available in the next couple of days.

Once released making a plugin for on-the-fly RAM editing should be pretty simple for those with the necessary know how.

do more research and you will find NTR cfw, you can do what you want with that :)
NTR 2 allows for 3DS based RAM editing? The old NTR required you to connect to your 3DS via a PC based program (NTR client/console or something). OP asked for a 3DS based option.

Yeah, but the CFW doesn't patch signature running...
Relevance? Why would you need signature patching?

oh, 3ds based option, ok. i thought just 'real time'. ntr is as good as we will get for a while i guess.
and naturally he wants to use pirated games with it... lol

Well I took it as him wanting a 3DS based solution because he said he looked and couldn't find "a single homebrew, neither an CIA or an 3ds file".

Well if being able to hack your downloaded ROMs is your primary goal, then you'll be pleased to know that the old NTR allows ROM hacking with a Gateway.

This is simply a side effect of NTR using a modified Gateway launcher, so it's a bug, not a feature. RAM editing is performed over wifi using a PC based client.

Honestly, if doing this sort of stuff without having to pay for games, is what you want I'd suggest you invest in a sky3DS.

You use it with either one of the three existing RAM editing setups, or the one of the two forthcoming options.

ARCode by KazoWAR may work with ROMs in emuNAND, but it's not realtime and requires access to a computer.
