Shameless Repost of me reposting Masher's gridlauncher post, because I don't speak English well. What I will, however, do is just list all of the new info I added:

1. Compiles with latest ctrulib.
2. Fixed the thread part with the new method of using Thread in ctrulib
3. Add Ninjhax 2.7 custom memmap support
4. SMDH localisation
5. Fix SMDH reader

I'd like to know, though, what features would you guys like to see added?

Public beta:

Oh, and BTW, it works on Rosalina, but it flickers, alot.

Anyways, here comes the long copy pasta:

Hi everyone

This homebrew launcher, based on the original by smealum, has the following features:
  • Grid layout with paging, touch/d-pad controls
  • Built-in settings to change options without editing config files
    • Optionally hide the region free loader
    • Optionally sort alphabetically
    • Display in one, two or three rows
    • Optional wraparound scrolling
    • Optional animated transitions between pages
    • Optionally hide the default /3ds homebrew folder
    • 12/24 hour clock
  • Help pages providing guidance on setup
  • Support for scanning subfolders on the SD card and choosing which folder to view in the grid
  • Still or animated water in the background
  • Support for my custom-format converted TTF fonts, currently using Roboto as the main font
  • Fully customisable themes
    • Wallpapers and splash screens for top and bottom screens
    • Support for PNG images to replace all GUI elements
    • Customisable colour scheme
    • Sound effects and background music c/o RedHat

  • Online updates
    • Option 1
    • Option 2
      • Download the archive attached to this post
      • Unzip it and copy boot.3dsx and the gridlauncher folder to the root of your SD card
      • This will copy the updater along with the launcher itself
      • Go into the settings within the launcher and choose the software update option

This is currently still in beta. If there are issues, bugs, or if you have ideas for improvements, please report them as per the the instructions below.

Source code and binary is available on GitHub:

Bug reporting and feature requests
If you are experiencing crashes, lock ups or other issues, or if you want to request a new feature or improvement, please log an issue on GitHub:

PLEASE DON'T POST IN THIS THREAD ABOUT THESE ISSUES. Monitoring this thread for bug reports and feature requests is too awkward now that the thread has grown so long. Also, PLEASE check to see if the issue you are experiencing or the feature you want to add has already been reported or resolved by checking the issues list and the change log below.

When logging issues, please do not just post the issue you are having. I.e. please do not post "the launcher is crashing." It is impossible to diagnose and fix bugs with such limited information. To investigate reported issues, I need ALL of the following information:

  • 3DS version (New/Old, XL/normal)
  • 3DS region (EUR/USA/JAP/AUS.....)
  • Precise FW version
  • HB entrypoint used (Cubic Ninja, OOT, homemenuhax, Ironfall.....)
  • Hax version (1.1/2.0/2.1/2.5)
  • What exactly the problem is and how it can be reproduce

Old 3DS XL info:
I used to have a 3DSafe A9LH V11.3.0-36U with Luma in my CTRNAND. Since ReiNAND Reibooted and Re-Reileased, I "switch"ed back.
Right now, I have boot9strap with Luma 8.0 as my CFW. Though, I'd like to see other CFW's for B9S.
