3DS: CHMN v2.0 Beta Released – Custom HomeMenu Manager

The Italian developer Rinnegatamante has released a new beta version of the Custom Home Menu Manager, a tool for choosing the theme, install and replace quickly and safely.


It would be possible to add a preview PNG, JPG or BMP, the theme will appear in TOP_SCREEN (if the picture looks too big for the screen, you can “explore” through the circle pad).

Inside the package you will find a file 3DSX,  and a 3DS in CIA format, the themes should be placed in a subfolder (named them as you wish) within the Themes folder.

Remember, that for those who use the 3DS file and the CIA Themes, the folder must be in the root of the SD Card.
