    Hi, this is a project I wanted to do time ago and delayed it because some personal problems, but I finally got something that "works" as intented, but keep in mind that this is far from done or a least for an early release.

    What is Lima3DS?
    Is a fork of both D9 and Luma3DS which its only intention is to be a rxTools-like CFW+Toolkit in a nice-looking frontend.

    Todo list:
    - A nicer GUI like PastaCFW and rxTools 3.0 with customizable theme.
    - Merge boot.bin into arm9loaderhax.bin (not sure if I will do this at all).
    - Bring support for every entrypoint.
    - An assist tool in form of CIA for updating and managing other things relevant to Lima3DS.
    - Both button-pressing and grub-like chainloader.
    - EMUNAND/RedNAND formater.
    - Re-add other skiped tools from D9.
    - A LOOOOT OF REWORK.

    I will give a pre-release as soon as I can, but a working code is up on my github if you want to compile it:

    As you can see, there is a lot of rework to do on the UI.


    Excuse me if my gramar is not the best.

    NOTE: None of this is my work, credits goes to D9's and Luma3DS's respective devs, as I said, my only intention is make a rxTools-like frontend.

    This isn't rxTools, it's Luma + Decrypt9. RxTools is mentioned because it's in the style of rxTools.

    if you want to mix a CFW and Decrypt9, please at least do it properly.

    Any chance it comes with a gacube emulator (/s)

    Seriously though, this is pretty interesting, I'll be watching out for this. Which luma version is it based off of?

    Both normal and dev, but probably will use only dev in the future, who knows...

    You only need the same envoriment you need to compile Luma, compile Lima3DS with "make a9lh", then you need LimaCFW's "boot.bin" (see readme from Lima3DS's repo), compile it and the result arm9loaderhax.bin rename it to "boot.bin" and put it into "/lima" folder, look at resources folder at the github, there you can get the backgrounds from the screenshot (put them into "/lima" as well).
