    This is admittedly not a very useful homebrew, but I just made it for fun. Basically you can run it on someone's 3DS and it simulates the screen that appears when it's bricked, so you can scare them. :lol:

    [​IMG]

    I created this using Steveice10's Homebrew Template (https://github.com/Steveice10/3DSHomebrewTemplate) and I didn't change the readme or anything, in case you're confused.

    This includes the source code as well as all the standard binary formats (in the "output" folder). Let me know if you prank someone with this; I'd be curious how they react!

    Download (or download the old version that doesn't look as realistic, if you really want to for some reason)

    It should already be there; check the output folder.

    Calm down, Satan.

    You should have a disclaimer: "I'm not responsible for damaged 3DS units." because people will likely toss them when they find out it's bricked.

    But there are people who have heard of the infamous "Blue Screen of Death".

    Neat. Honestly though, I think nintendo should have just gone with a blinking screen and power button instead of a blue screen of death.

    Why? It wouldn't be as useful for determining the problem.

    Though they don't really seem to be too interested in that; the built-in error screens only display an error code without any explanation of what it means in some cases, and sometimes it doesn't even give you that. No idea why.

    That's all we got on the NES.

    Somehwere, in a nintendo service center is a book of error codes. They're probably not meant for the consumer.

    Why have a fake brick when you can have a real brick?

    Or you could put this on someone's 3ds so they think it's broken. They then sell you it for $20 :)

    Oh, you're right! I'll fix that "white away." *crickets chirping* (Sorry, I had to.)

    EDIT: Fixed.

    They ought to publish it, to help people determine what's wrong with their 3DS easier. Let's not get too off-topic though.

    Try rebooting it. :P
    (Or if you're not using Ninjhax, just press Home.)

    Wait a sec, should be possible to "run" this using SpiderRop?

    Think about it, going to a friend home, open the browser, launch it and watch him screaming in pain
