    Probably, endrift will try to write a dynarec for all the firmwares.

    But endrift didn't include a kernelhax in mgba. Did you compile your own version? can you share it?

    I downloaded mGBA recently and it had a .cia build of it. Which would mean kernel access is enabled. The emulators for 3ds are just too young right now to expect any good speeds. I'm surprised at what they can do atm. Wait until the middle of next year and I bet ALL emulators for 3ds will be considerably better than they are now.

    It doesn't matter if it has a cia build if it's not using kernel features.

    Being a CIA does not mean it has kernel access and doesn't mean it even uses the kernel features. mGBA doesn't use it.

    My statement still remains valid. Homebrew is very young atm and you can't expect 100% fullspeed from emulation. Especially if you aren't on running on a N3DS.

    I meant the 3DS version of mGBA doesn't have a dynamic recompiler.

    If you got Ambassador GBA games on O3DS, you can inject GBA roms of your choice in there, according to a thread here somewhere.

    That requires kernel access.

    You don't even need the games, just a GBA ROM and you also have to patch the AGB_FIRM but yeah, full speed GBA on 3ds (now we need to hack it more so that we can load any ROM without building a CIA of it) it also requires kernel access though
