    This homebrew software, originally coded by TheCruel, allows you to download software you own via an encTitleKey.bin file.

    How to use it:
    1/ Install the latest version of this software (Download link above) on your preferred CFW.
    2/ Put an URL linking to the encTitleKey.bin file on the freeShop's Settings > Update > Auto-update title keys from URL.
    3/ You can now use freeShop, enjoy !

    FAQs and Troubleshooting

    TODO List

    Thanks to the users of this fork, TheCruel did a fantastic job for this software, the code is very understandable and clean.
    Please feedback any feature that you want, or report any bug there.

    Yeah, why is a fork needed? Seems like FreeShop still works, and it still refreshes to add new titles as they get added to the title site.

    TheCruel will not be working on Freeshop for the foreseeable future, so this user has forked it. Please keep any discussion about the original FreeShop/Developer in the original FreeShop thread.

    I'd recommend making that section bolder/redder, just to make it stand out :)

    That's fantastic. It would be a shame if Freeshop died, it's really practical and still has great potential of growth.

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    Here's the changelog if anyone is interested... @Manurocker95 ;)

    freeShop v3.0.0 Changelog

    @arc13, this is awesome! Thanks for the new features! I'm looking very forward to hopefully seeing download in sleep mode implemented. That's one feature I was really hopeful for when it first came about.

    RIB TheCruel.
    In the meanwhile, is there any difference so far between this fork and the official at the moment?

    Oh sorry.
    When I was making the reply that one didn't appear yet. Thanks for the heads up though.

    SD card space information is actually really awesome, it was a tad annoying having to jump back to FBI to see what kind of space I had left for installing stuff

    Thanks for the added info about free space on top screen ... i had no intention of jumping on the paranoia bandwagon in the other thread and dropping freeshop however now i have a reason to upgrade for the freespace meters on top screen
