    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

    Q: Do I need a CFW for this?
    A: Yes.

    Q: Is there a 3dsx version?

    A: Yes, however the cia version is recommended, because the 3dsx can have features missing and bugs.

    Q: Why are games missing? They're on the eShop.

    A: It only shows games for which you have the title key (dumped to encTitleKeys.bin). And even then some games won't show because they're not cached server-side (this will eventually change).

    Q: Why does freeShop show DLC as installed when I don't have it?

    A: All DLC is lumped together with the same title id, so even partial installs will show it as installed. If you're missing DLC, just delete it and reinstall it. If eShop partially installed it, or you previously purchased some DLC through eShop on that console, you may lose the DLC freeShop installs when you revisit eShop. This is currently unavoidable.

    Q: Can freeShop download while sleeping?
    A: Yes, please read the instructions.

    Q: Can I download games of any region?
    A: Depends on your CFW. Most of them allow it, including the popular Luma3DS.

    Q: Is this safe? Will I get banned/sued for using this?
    A: Even modding your console's software/firmware runs legal risks. But like running freeShop, the risk is minimal. If you make sure to only install games you've purchased, then you remain in a safer legal grey area. And there is no way for Nintendo to know which client IP owns which games. That would requires some analytic guesswork, potentially resulting in many false-positive bans. Not likely to happen and none have been reported.

    Q: Why did you do a fork?
    A: Because I can. Because TheCruel can't, for some reasons, update it anymore.

    Q: Why starting a new thread?

    A: The original was... polluted with *what happened to TheCruel*, starting at page 300, and some users requested to open a new thread.

    Q: OMG, I know what happened to him, I will say it on this thread!!!!

    A: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo, this thread is for talking about my fork of freeShop, and the Original freeShop, not about what TheCruel did, that's how the original thread went into a complete disaster. If you want to know what happened and discuss about it, do it here:
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/former-g...ected-pedophile-gets-20-year-sentence.468679/

    Q: How to I update to this version?
    A: Simply scan new QR Code with FBI

    Q: How to dump my encTitleKey.bin file?
    - First, you'll need to install and launch GodMode9:
    - If you followed 3ds.guide, you should already have GodMode9, simply hold the START Button and select GodMode9 if asked.
    - When GodMode9 is started, press the HOME Button
    - Select the "More..." option
    - Select the "Build support files" option
    - Press the A button
    - Press 2x the B button
    - Select the "[0:] SDCARD" option
    - Go to the "gm9out" folder
    - Hover the "encTitleKeys.bin" file
    - Press the Y Button
    - Press the B Button
    - Go to the "3ds" folder, "freeShop" folder, and then keys folder
    - Press the Y Button and then the A Button to paste your "encTitleKeys.bin" file


    Q: Why don't I have any friends?

    A: You should get out more.

    Troubleshooting

    I keep getting "Failed to install seed" errors.

    You likely have a FW version < 9.6 and therefore cannot play newer games that utilize crypto seeds. You can fix this with a FW update.

    I keep getting "Wrong title key" errors.

    You're probably not using correct encrypted keys (encTitleKeys.bin). Decrypted keys will give this error.

    I keep getting "Failed to finalize TMD install: 0xC86044D2".

    The system is reporting that you don't have enough space on your SD card to install the game. If it's a DSiWare game, then it's your NAND that doesn't have the space.

    I keep getting "Failed to finalize content install: 0xD8E08025".
    There are many possible reasons for this. But one known diagnosis is a possible SD card problem. For example, a fake SD card who is reporting space available while it's actually full will often give this error. Double-check your SD card.

    I get error code 0xD8A08004

    This happens with the installation state gets screwed up. You have to reboot the console to get rid of it. If you consistently get this, report how so the bug can be fixed.

    Some games icons are missing/glitched
    Refresh your cache via the freeShop's settings > Update > Refresh Cache button.

    I keep getting Ticket Error with all games I want to download
    Install and launch tikSweep, then reboot your console, this may fix your problem.

    I don't get any sound when I'm on the freeShop
    Please dump your DSP and launch the eShop.

    My question is not listed here
    Ask here

    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.

    Here's the changelog if anyone is interested... @Manurocker95 ;)

    The first version of this fork.

    Changelog:

    • Theming support (A guide will be released with 3.0.1, some bugs are still present with theming in this version)

    • AZERTY and QWERTY keyboards (Chinese soon)

    • Fixed some bugs:

    - No internet connection loop bug
    - German language

    Informations on the top screen (Clock, TWL NAND and SD used space/total space)

    (VERY inspired by FBI for top screen informations, thanks @Steveice10)

    @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?

    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
