EDIT:

https://github.com/yifanlu/Cosmo3DS/releases/tag/v0.2

New release. Rebased project with AuReiNand (because of the better dynamic patch finding support). Added loading of FIRM from emuNAND (no more need for firmware.bin) and removed need to have to pad 3ds_injector (CFW will move stuff around to make room for modified loader, regardless of size). These features are also submitted to AuroraWright for those who do not wish to use Cosmo3DS
https://github.com/AuroraWright/AuReiNand/pull/8
https://github.com/AuroraWright/AuReiNand/pull/9

The goal of this CFW is "install once and never touch again". So I've removed configuration options, splash screens, etc. With emuNAND FIRM loading and dynamic FIRM patching, that means when you update emunand via system settings, you can run the latest FIRM with both loader patches and FIRM patches without needing to update firmware.bin or the CFW.
Just using the CFW does NOT enable eShop for region changed consoles. It is the last step in a very complicated process detailed here:

Probably the future of 3ds cfw.


"This is a custom loader that adds the following patches

  • Region free loading from home menu
  • Non-permanent region/serial change by placing any SecureInfo_A onto SD card root
  • Patch eShop response with correct Country value (allowing eShop to work on region changed console)
  • Block updates
The custom loader should work with any system version. You can use this with Cosmo3DS CFW or any supported CFW."

EDIT: Good read on his blog:

so happy I could cry:rofl2:

This is nice but ill wait for someone to implement these changes into other CFW
If your CFW uses an unencrypted firmware.bin (reinand before the current version I believe does this), just replace the loader CXI directly. If your CFW uses an encrypted firmware.bin, add code to inject the loader CXI.

So how does that work ? If I wanted to make my emunand JP for a short period of time, what would I do in order to make it work (with cosmo3DS ?)

i noticed something on yifanlu's github a few days ago, but sure i guess it wasn't finished then or something, very cool! thank you for trying to make things more simple and standardized, it's annoying when people don't work together from the beginning

lies. girls don't exist on the interwebs. :P haha
Lol yeah. I tried adding the female symbol (♀) to my by-line but it hasn't stopped people calling me "dude". I think it'd be a lot better if males didn't use female avatars. For example I always think of Rinne as a female (female avatar, gender neutral name)
