  1. It is possible to use Homebrew on CFW? Like Homebrew Launcher in CIA?

  2. Please can you link to the original thread on GBATemp? The download link is now broken because I have replaced the attachment with a new beta.

  3. Where do you find the new launcher from? The ninjahax website still gives the old launcher. Thanks!
