The 3DS hacking scene just keeps getting better and better, now with the release of NTR CFW 2.0 for New 3DS from cell9 over at the GBA Temp forums. This release allows such features as Region Free Games, CFW Menu, Plugin Support, Realtime Debugger, and Savegame manager. This will only work on the New 3DS and will not work with flash cards or other false game carts so keep that in mind if you want to try this. Here is what cell9 had to say …
“NTR CFW could be boot from the official N3DS system only. It can run genuine gamecards only. The unauthorized copy of software or clone hardware in any form will NEVER be supported in NTR Mode.
In short, no cia, no piracy.
I personally will never support any kind of piracy. Using genuine gamecards is strongly recommended.
I have never made NTR CFW 1.7, please be aware of fraud downloads.
NTR CFW 2.0 is a custom firmware designed for New 3DS, with such features:
Region Free. Region-locked games could be launched in Home Menu directly.
CFW Menu. Press X+Y in games or Home Menu will show the NTR CFW Menu, to take screenshots or interact with plugins.
Plugin support. Users can develop or install their own plugins with libntrplg, plugin will run in the background and is callable via NTR CFW Menu. (screenshot is a built-in plugin now)
Realtime Debugger. Debugging your plugins on wi-fi directly with NTR Debugger: http://gbatemp.net/threads/release-…st-public-real-time-debugger-for-n3ds.384858/
Savegame Manager. Manage your savegame of genuine gamecards, support migrating savegame from NTR 1.0 to NTR 2.0: http://gbatemp.net/threads/release-savegame-manager-plugin-for-ntr-1-0-2-0.384865/
And there are more features to be discovered.
