    Good evening fellow tempers,

    First off let me say I'm not sure this is the right location for this thread, but all developments (CFW included) of the 3DS scene could be considered homebrew of sorts right.


    Let's not turn this thread into a this dev is better than this dev flame war. The aim is to have a thread for members to give a shout out to a dev who has made the 3DS scene a little brighter for them. Feel free to post the project/developement and the dev(s) (some may have too many to list so the main dev should be fine) who created them. Hopefully this will be a constructive way to celebrate the developers without having to sift through 100's of 1000's of threads/posts for them to enjoy our adoration.

    @Olmectron, great start.

    All right Tempers dig deep as I am sure there are some great devs that despite not having been heard from in awhile we can still recognize their contributions to advancing the scene to what it is today. Also devs if you have been inspired or have a dev that your project has evolved from feel free to get involved as well.

    @Riku, thanks for AGB_Firm Signature Patcher + GBA Rom Converter and 3DS Simple CIA Converter

    Palantine! XD (lol)

    .... getting back to reality, I think an often overlooked dev is @d0k3 . The guy has made countless awesome 3ds apps and really seems to listen to users. He usually fulfills most requests and fixes bugs in a timely manner. Guy is a real worker bee.

    @VideahGams did a great job porting the LÖVE framework to the 3DS!

    too many to mention for me to be fair, but some of the ones that have made a real difference for me personally would be

    @Reisyukaku
    @d0k3
    @dark_samus3
    @Shadowtrance
    @smealum
    @ketal
    @daxtsu
    @mid-kid

    I will probably get shouted at now for tagging these people, but they are the ones who have made the most difference for me personally

    It's kind of a shame, because there are so many more individuals behind the scenes who I don't know / remember the names of

    Edit: There are ninjas spying my posts...

    Before I forget, It is expected that members (myself included) may unintentionally forget to name a dev who developed/contributed to a project. Please without starting a flame war if you notice an omission please bring it to the attention of us all by posting here and getting that dev some love. Thank you.


    Edit: Repeats are inevitable, but hey this is a love thread there are no prizes for being mentioned multiple times. The aim is dev awareness and their contributions.

    I realize the devs at the forefront of the A9LH and CFW developments will garner alot of adoration and if members want to continually post that it is okay. Somewhere along the line someone will post a contributing dev who will make us look up their project and see how it helped advance the scene and maybe even help us in current projects. Lots of great projects and code out there.

    Mmn I agree with @zoogie (who I actually appreciate for the news he provides and the tools he creates). Without @d0k3 and his tools, I can't imagine the number of bricks we could have from trying to get the OTP. While I got my OTP before it's inception, the OTPHelper tool was a great idea and really streamlined the downgrading, OTP retreval, and update back to your original state.

    Also a big shout out to @Aurora Wright for Aureinand which is the cfw I'm currently using and it's really nice. But I can't forget @Reisyukaku for the AMAZING Reinand base from which Aureinand was born. Also his very convientent and extremely legal :P pastebin has proved to be more than useful for people over the years.

    Also @Roxas75, I know you're gone and I hope you're doing fine, but I wanted to say thanks for Rxtools. It was my first cfw and it worked great when cfw+menuhax+bootmanager was still a thing.

    This is kinda weird because "they" really can't be pinned downed to a known dev, but Gateway. Devs reverse-engineering their work indirectly led to almost everything we have now. Only until @smealum showed up with ninjhax and ctrulib, did other devs really start contributing meaningful open source work. Big thanks to smea and a bunch of his 3dbrew friends for getting that culture started.

    Of course @yellows8 deserves huge credit and pretty much wrote 80% of 3dbrew and, of course, a slew of awesome userland exploits. (and he's the real author of 'palantine' cfw btw).

    Gotta give @Neimod some props too with his early hardware work despite being a somewhat controversial character.

    redNAND nand redirection exploit written by Smealum (w/ help from friends)
    emuNAND-- GW team's version of the above

    Feel free to correct me if this information is wrong. The aim is acknowledgement of devs and there will be misinformation. If you can help correct any misinformation please do and the community thanks you for it. We want all the devs to get proper credit.

    This. We would still be stuck in the ages of using Cubic Ninja to get the OTP (which I'm fairly certain a lot of people would not have a9lh if this were the case) then he decided to work his ass off to figure out all of the register sets to get screen init, taught me a fuck-ton and helped me integrate screen init into a9lh... we'd be nowhere without him right now
