#1✎ 177HTV04Intermediate ProgrammerI can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming StrengthApril Fool's 2017 Contest ParticipantI participated in the SmileBASIC Source April Fool's 2017 Contest!Programming ContestForum ContributorHiddenAchievementsI personally haven’t homebrewed my 3DS, but I decided to make a poll thread anyway. Have you every homebrewed your 3DS, or did you decide against it? If so, what methods did you use to homebrew your 3DS? If not, why did you decide against it?
I haven’t homebrewed my 3DS, nor am I planning to. I’d rather just keep everything simple and vanilla for now. I also don’t want to get homebrew because my 3DS might be targeted for doing so (such as if Nintendo makes another banwave), and I might brick my 3DS if I do something wrong when using homebrew.
#2✎ 59ninjagnuI'm not scared about bricking my 3ds by doing something dumb. More like I'm scared that I'll get banned in a banwave. :P

There are ways to protect against banwaves. However, none of them are full-proof.
And that's exactly the reason why. ;)
#7✎ 221ShellyIf I had to bet I would say that nintendo won't do another ban wave. There's 2 reasons for this:
-As the homebrewers develop better software it becomes harder to do banwaves.
-The 3ds isn't the main console anymore, so I feel like it will turn out like Dsi, where after the new console comes out they turn a blind eye towards it.
That's just my take.

Come to me for help, if you like!Programming StrengthPokemon Is Awesome!I love Pokemon!Express YourselfI tried homebrew around two years ago and messed around with some homebrew games, but only installed CFW around when soundhax was released.
2~ years ago: Homebrew is great, CFW seems too risky with no benefit for me. (All that emuNAND stuff confused me so much)
1~ year ago: A9LH? Soundhax? 2.1 downgrade? Probably worth it, might want it later.
Now: B9S and Luma CFW, attempting to write some simple games in C. Regularly playing CTGP7 with friends and sometimes messing with Pokémon romhacks and save edits. Also, TWLoader!
The only 'problem' from my experience was focusing on C more than SmileBASIC, and my endless struggle with failing to finish projects in even more languages.
At the same time 3DS homebrew/hacking is probably the only reason I understand how to use file browsers at all today.
Do I need menuhax files on my SD card?
EDIT: Also sorry for so many questions :( I am not very experienced with this sort of thing
EDIT 2: Am I supposed to put all of the files in the starter kit onto the SD?
