    How could priority of sd card come before nand considering there is no kernal right now for 9.3 and beyond?
    And about booting into a game directly.

    Coldboot is achieved through themehax, which exploits a vulnerability in the theme loading on 9.0 and above systems to load a file from the sdcard.

    It's an exploit in themes. Sysnand loads the theme, which loads boot.3dsx.

    So it is just theme/ menuhax with some modification?

    themehax loads boot.3dsx from the sd card. so that could be replaced with a homebrew renamed to boot.3dsx - this could cause some pathing issues though for hombrew that read assets from sd.
