    Hey guys! Hopefully i'm in the right section.

    What's some stupid & useless things you could do with your 3ds with cfw?

    So far I've only installed the led light changer [which isn't working but i'll probably talk about that in another thread]

    Considering I am a homebrew tester and my entire job is to do stupid and sometimes useless things, I have a pretty decent list.
    Brick my 3DS on purpose
    Delete important OFW files to see what would happen
    Re-install menuhax or A9LH
    Fuck about with the CFW patches to see what kind of chaos I can cause.
    Update to the latest OFW as soon as it hits
    Intentionally got my system banned
    Updated my system without FIRM protection enabled
    Flashed a broken emuNAND to the NAND
    Installed a boot animation of Gardevoir kissing the screen
    Just to name a few things I did in the name of helping devs test out homebrew and possible ways to avoid or fix these issues.

    I have 3DSController installed already and I didn't think of that! I might try it sometime.

    How do I change the boot screen? Asking for a friend.

    I installed BAX to my FIRM1 and boot into it using FastBoot3DS. So it’s FastBoot3DS ==> BAX with animation ==> Luma3DS

    Linux for 3DS. It's fun. It's basically useless. Of course I did it.

    Dovetastic also had several videos of various 3ds models getting yeeted, but I guess those were purged with his youtube ban.

    Probably because butthurt idiots got mad about him destroying his own property for public entertainment (even though hollywood does this on a regular basis in action movies).

    Watching yt videos? Nah, bump it up a notch and watch Netflix on your 3DS

    Also, if you have a good hour or two to kill, you could watch as you use FTPD to transfer files bigger than 500MB to or from the 3DS, as that seems to be the slowest goddamn thing in the world.

    • Edit the hex code of ur nand partitions
    • Unmount ctrnand on godmode9
    • Downgrade ur 3ds and install old cfw to brick after that updating the FW
    • Install win95 homebrew and use ur 3ds instead of ur computer
    • Install Rick astley homebrew app and play "Never gonna give you up" until the battery dies
