NASA V.1.6

NASA is a CIA Manager, based on an heavy modified version of latest source of Big Red Menu, which is compatible with ANY firmware >= 4.1.
It uses libSu/libsvchax to get access to required services for LEGIT CIAs installation on fw >= 9.3 and libkhax to get access to required services for ANY CIAs installation on fw 4.1 - 9.2.
It also have network installation feature which doesn't need double free space cause it will perform a full network installation.


CONTROLS:

Imported Contents:

Digital Pad = Navigate through titles
A = Uninstall a title
Select = Go to Filebrowser
Start = Open Controls List

Filebrowser:

Digital Pad = Navigate through folders
A = Install a CIA / Open a Directory
B = Return to previous directory
Y = Multichain Install from a Directory
X = Enable / Disable the "Delete after install" feature
L = Enable / Disable Security Mode
R = Swap between SDMC/NAND installation
Select = Go to Imported Contents
Start = Open Controls List

NASA GUI CUSTOMIZATION

[/b]Starting from NASA v.1.6, it's possible to use themes to customize your NASA installation. What you have to do is to place a file named as nasa_theme.lua in the root of your SD with some info inside it. You can find a simple sample theme in the RAR archive of NASA. Just open the lua file with a text editor and personalize it to make your own theme!

HOW TO USE BUILT-IN FTP SERVER

Starting from NASA v.1.6, it's possible to connect to NASA through a generic FTP client. This will allows you possibility to UNINSTALL installed titles from both NAND and SDMC and also install CIA files to NAND/SDMC. Using an ftp client will have a lot of advantages like timeout resolving, native multichain installation support, real-time progressbar (at least on Filezilla) and so on.
This is a little video showing this feature when it was under development:


HOW TO USE NETWORK INSTALLATION (HOUSTON)


To use network installation feature, you need to start NASA and check the IP showed on top screen.
Then you can open a terminal (Linux/Mac) / command-line prompt (Windows) and launch houston with the IP showed on 3DS (without the part after ":") and the CIA filename as arguments. Example:
Code:
houston 192.168.1.60 file.cia

FAQ

Q) Free Space reported by NASA is wrong and i can't install a CIA file, what can i do?
A) Disable Security Mode.

Q) Can i install any CIA file on fw >= 9.3?
A) No, you can install only LEGIT cias, here you can find a list of available ones with MD5, SHA1 and CRC hashes ( https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-install-legit-cia-files-above-9-3.407854/page-52#post-5921202 ).

Q) What's the best way to boot it on fw >= 9.3?
A) I suggest you to use MenuHax as entrypoint with WiFi ENABLED when you launch NASA (NOTE: If you start NASA with Wifi DISABLED on fw >= 9.3, you'll not be able to use Network Installer).

Q) When i use Houston, it asks for a cygwin1.dll file. Where i can find it?
A) https://github.com/Rinnegatamante/lpp-3ds/blob/master/JPGV/cygwin1.dll

Q) Is it possible to chain install CIA files with Houston?
A) Yes, i suggest you to use this GUI by @Baoulettes : https://gbatemp.net/threads/release...r-for-fw-4-1-10-3.409806/page-29#post-6001029

If I was still stuck I'd definitely use it.

I'd just put the disclaimer higher in the text :P

Does this actually work?

Edit: Looks like it does. Will try it out later. :)

Awesome! ...but I wish it had arrived a couple of days (or a week) sooner - finally got the mch/fbi to work after around 500 attempts.
I'll grab this in case any of my mates might want the legit cia's.

We all know how often FBI fails to start/install CIAs, right? So does this have a higher success rate than FBI?

Works great on N3DS XL 10.3.
Especially the delete CIA after installation function is very helpful.
Thank you very much!

My method:
- Wifi on
- coldboot into MenuHax
- launch FTBrony and immediately exit with B
- launch NASA

Got three successfull launches in a row with this method (with FBI 2 successfull launches in 7 days).

NASA boots on IMPORTED CONTENTS first
But why not boot into filebrowser first? Shoud be safer.

For some reason NASA isn't showing up in my homebrew menu.

1) Downloaded the file.
2) Unzipped the file and place it in 3ds folder with rest of homebrew.
3) Created a folder called NASA and put the files in there.
4) Started Homemenuhax. It isn't there.
...
6) thoughts?

EDIT: It eventually appeared. Trying NASA out soon!
