    Wherever my imagination decides.
    What's the difference between DevMenu and BigBlueBox? Are they one and the same? Is the later just an edited form of the first? Thanks.

    This. Essentially, both work fine. BigBlueBox looks exactly like DevMenu when installed via CIA.

    BBM is a edited version of DevMenu that does not break any copyrights from Nintendo iirc
    DevMenu is the original .cia manager, included with the leaked SDK alongside PlayCoinSetter, SaveDataFiler and a couple other apps. Very good stuff if you ask me.

    Yes they do essentially the same thing, although i would say that BBM is safer since it does not allow you to overwrite .cia's (to save bricks probably) im sure it has other precautions embedded into itself over DevMenu as well. Maybe.
