    Is it possible to use eshop to launch hbmenu instead of album? After all, most of the users will not use eshop if they are into homebrew.

    I think this should work if you modify a line in the file /atmosphere/loader.ini, in your SD card.
    from:
    hbl_tid=010000000000100D
    to:
    hbl_tid=010000000000100B

    I have not tested this, but I think it should work.

    That will unfortunately not work and will make the console crash.

    I don't think it will work!
    Maybe if you have only one user, but if you have multiple there is the question "Who" will use the Online shop!
    So try it with only one user but anything else wont work IMHO :)

    Using a game to launch homebrew already pulls up the user selection menu, you just pick someone and it launches.

    Might be something weird since it's an applet launching that menu instead of a game?

    But the album is an applet too. I don't see why this wouldn't work, but maybe it requires a different method than editing loader.ini.

    I'm using as you said.

    It is possible.

    open \atmosphere\loader.ini
    change hbl_tid 0100~00100D to 0100~00100B
    just change D to B.

    I'm wondering why people think this is impossible.

    I tried that and it didn't work I primarily use Reinx. Could that be why?

    I used SDfiles 9 with cfw+Layeredfs option.
    Maybe this is not compatible with reinx.

    I tried a few things and so far a no go. Any ideas? I'd much rather have the eshop icon repurposes opposed to the album icon
