Which path would you like ShadowNAND and SaltFW to have?

    ShadowNAND
    CFW in your NAND

    __________________________
    I hardbricked my N3DS yesterday to a freak accident (don't even know what went wrong), and I don't have the resources to get it fixed. With the addition of very busy real life, I think it's time for me to say good bye to the scene as a developer. If anybody wants to continue ShadowNAND, PM me and we can work something out.

    Thank you for all the support.


    __________________________

    I've seen a lot of people talking and asking about this, and there has been a lot of misinformation and misconception about this. So I decided to clear things up, and ask the community what they would like to see.

    ShadowNAND is a CFW in your NAND. It will be installed like A9LH, and will simply work without SD.


    ShadowNAND isn't:
    • SaltFW
    • Luma3DS
    • Stock firmware
    • A piracy tool

    Planned features:
    • SysNAND Booting without SD. (DONE! Thanks to @AuroraWright)
    • Sigcheck patches. (DONE! Thanks to @AuroraWright)
    • Firmwrite protection for regular boot. (DONE! Thanks to @AuroraWright)
    • Firmwrite protection for SAFE_MODE.
    • Splash screen.
    • External payload loading. (DONE!)
    • EmuNAND support (9.x and onwards).
    • Reboot patches.
    • No screeninit unless key is held. (DONE!)
    • Built-in safety net (altstage2). (DONE!)
    • Built-in optional bootloader with GUI (based on CTRBootManager9).
    • External injector/loader support.
    • Full A9NC support. (DONE!)

    ShadowNAND v0.85 released! Get it here!

    Would be cool if you could post a simple tutorial to install it (after it is meant to be installed).
    I'm using A9LH right now and want to use this stuff even if the SD card isn't inserted.

    Will this only patch the normal firm or are you going to patch Safe/Recovery Mode like Luma does too?

    It is more or less the same, but if you already have a9lh, it's like two button presses.

    Don't know, I'm using an old3ds XL 10.3 sysnand US. Just launching without the SD card. When I close and reopen the lid, it's gone.

    ShadowNAND wouldn't really interfere with that. To clarify, you close lid, and then open it when you're on the home menu, and that causes the view to be gone?

    EDIT: Can't reproduce on n3ds XL.
    EDIT2: You're right, the screeninit is fucked up.
