    I got Homebrew recently (i used steelhax) and I've heard about an app that lets you play games from other regions. I'vne been looking for it for awhile now but all I can find is the Download & Play exploit. Where can I download it?

    if you put cfw on the system, it makes it region free. You may need a lumalocale.txt but thats gonna be it.

    HANS will let you play your out of region gamecarts.

    HANS is outdated and with cfw is useless. I dont even know if it even works on higher firms.

    Correct statement.
    OP doesn't have cfw though so it's more convenient to do it with the homebrew menu which she already has.

    the new-hbmenu doesn't support title selection because the devs were lazy and therefor hans doesn't work at all.
    download the good homebrew launcher here and replace boot.3dsx.
    hans will reappear on the list.
    hans didn't work for me though. just booted me back to the home menu before even showing me the hans menu. maybe it's luma's fault, maybe it's hans fault. who knows.
    but no need to worry because there's another icon on the menu you can press to launch out of region games. that one was able to launch a regular game for me so I bet it still works for out of region games.
