    It's also neat that you and your team also translated this program in several languages, when virtually every single other homebrew app for the 3DS is in English, I wonder when did you got the idea to translate this program to all those languages though.

    from SOON! (v1) it even haves more langs
    also, it's intended to be noob proof, so translations are required

    I'm an FBI fan myself, but kudos for actually going through with this.
    I remember seeing the thread for "SOON!" 1 and thinking "Wow, this noob probably won't get a release going".

    Yet here we are, at v2 and working.
    Good on you for this!

    SOON!2 needs a server for the cover database update
    http://cur.lv/vrq9d it's the way we will get money to pay for a better server and better speeds
    SOON!2 is a free software and we need that to improve our server, please disable your adblock to help the project....
    You will help us, you just have to skip the ad, then download. Every single click will help us to pay for a better server
    Thanks everyone for understand us

    try SOON!2 with hudge CIA files, you will be surprised!

    Cool thanks for the release. I haven't tried either version of SOON, but when I get the chance I'll definitely take this out for a spin. Have you compared its speeds to other cia installers like FBI? I guess a cia installer that's too quick isn't the safest tool, but it'd be interesting to see how it compares with the rest.
