CFW in your NAND.

##How to Install

  • Download ShadowNAND Installer from here
  • Download ShadowNAND itself from here
  • Download other required files from here
  • Put ShadowNAND files, other required files, and your otp.bin to SD:\homebrew\3ds\ShadowNAND_Installer
  • Boot from ShadowNAND_Installer.bin or other entry points.
  • Press SELECT
  • Done.

##How to use

  • Install.
  • Download and install SaltFW v3.0 in ShadowNAND way (boot.bin in /homebrew/3ds/)
  • SaltFW is the companion CFW for ShadowNAND until ShadowNAND has more features.
  • Done.

##What can it do:

  • Boot homebrew/3ds/boot.bin, this can be any payload.
  • Boot homebrew/3ds/boot.bin with screeninit by pressing DPAD_LEFT on launch.
  • Boot homebrew/3ds/bootmgr.bin by pressing DPAD_DOWN on launch, this can be any payload.
  • CtrBootManager9 is the bootmanager of choice. Download here.
  • Boot to SysNAND if no payload or SD found. (thanks to @AuroraWright)

##SysNAND booting:

  • Patches firmwrites, so you can update your sysNAND.
  • Patches sigchecks so it can show/launch unsigned programs.
  • No reboot patches yet, so no AGB/TWL/SAFE_MODE booting.

##Planned features:

  • Splash screen.
  • Reboot patches.
  • AGB/TWL FIRM patches.
  • Built-in bootloader with GUI.
  • EmuNAND support.
  • External injector/loader support.
  • Region/Language emulation.
  • Region-free patches.
  • firmware.bin support.
