    Heres a updated version of the Snes Emulator for the 3DS from bubble2k16:

    Never thought I'd be making such a major change to this emu anymore, but here it is:

    v1.30 released:

    Improved sound synchronization.
    Added BlargSNES DSP Core (experimental) for performance. The original Snes9X DSP core (default) suffers from sound skipping in some games like Aladdin and Gradius 3. You can choose which DSP core to use from the Options menu. The BlargSNES DSP Core sounds similar to the Snes9x Core for most games. Sounds like Final Fantasy 3's the howling wind sound different.
    Added support for Tengai Makyou Zero English Patch (for hopefully all future versions)

    If you have hacked your 3DS this is probably the release that will open your eyes to what is about on the 3DS scene, heres whats new:


    Cache fix for TLSv1.1 revoke by GitHub.
    Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
    Russian language updated ( #1 ), minor update to American Spanish ( #2 ).

    Note that the TLSv1.1 revoke will cause theCruel's original version of freeShop (freeShop 2.0) to become unusuable. It's strongly recommended to upgrade to CE version, if you haven't done so already.

    -- Special hugs to @Byokugen for being there from beginning to end! She's awesome

    If your going to hack your 3DS or indeed your 2DS then youll need this app:

    FBI is an open source file and title manager by Steveice10 for the Nintendo 3DS. Discussion via GBAtemp.

    Release notes:
    * Clean up various bits of core code.
    * Fix font size on CHN/KOR/TWN devices.
    * HTTP operations now support gzip/deflate compression, which should reduce bandwidth usage when supported by the server.
    * Load file metadata after populating full list. Directories containing a lot of CIAs should populate faster now, although detailed information will not be immediately available for all files until loading has finished.
    – File operations for which file metadata is unnecessary should also load faster.
    * Modify built-in updater to pull from TitleDB, as GitHub no longer supports TLS versions supported by the 3DS.
    * Rewrite TitleDB support.
    – Titles can be installed as a 3DSX and/or a CIA, depending on availability.
    — Descriptions and categories are displayed in the main TitleDB list, and detailed information is displayed for CIA and 3DSX versions after selecting a title.
    – Entries will be blue when a newer version is available. Note that all installed titles will be marked as outdated until installed with version 2.5.0 or later through TitleDB, as the last installed version must be added to the cache.
    * All outdated titles can be updated at once by pressing Y in the TitleDB list.
    – Basic sorting and filtering options have been added.
    A lot of internal changes were made leading up to this release. Make sure to report any glitches and crashes that may have been missed.
    Also, the built-in updater should no longer work on versions older than 2.5.0, as GitHub has disabled TLSv1.1 support.

    Having recently brought a 2DS and updated it with custom firmwares, im happy to see emulators released for the system:

    RetroArch is a modular multi-system emulator system that is designed to be fast, lightweight, and portable. It supports multiple systems.

    3DS specific changes:
    – 3DS: Now correctly reports amount of CPU cores.
    – 3DS: Frontend rating is now correctly implemented for both New 3DS/2DS and Old 3DS/2DS.
    – 3DS: Initial networking support, HTTP requests won’t work yet.
    – 3DS: Now reports memory and battery state.

    Heres a port of a decent looking Jet Set Willy type game for the Nintendo 3DS, heres the release notes:

    Locomalito‘s game L’Abbaye des Morts has been ported to the Nintendo 3DS by JeffRuLz! It’s written in C using the libctru and citro3d libraries. The gameplay is directly inspired by Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. This port seems to run fullspeed!
    In the 13th century, the Cathars, who preach about good Christian beliefs, were being expelled by the Catholic Church out of the Languedoc region in France. One of them, called Jean Raymond, found an old church in which to hide, not knowing that beneath its ruins lay buried an ancient evil.

    I have a hacked 3DS but i use a Gateway Card so not sure what this app is, (remember i had a good year away from homebrew), but anyway heres the release notes:

    Despite all the copyright infringement caused by this utility, Evi offers version 4.1.1 of " freeShop ", open source clone, originally developed by TheCruel , the famous online store Eshop for nintendo 2DS / 3DS.

    v4.1.1 Removed leftover Halloween
    The startup sound shouldnt mess anymore.

    v4.1.0 Derpy fix hotfix
    Okay apparently in the CMakeLists.txt version, but since nobody told me that I forgot to update it. That is now fixed.

    4.1.0 changes:

    Changed cache storage to sdmc: / 3ds / freeShop since nobody uses data folders anymore for homebrew.
    Updated the application to display the new version properly.
    If your settings are broken after install, move the sdmc: / 3ds / data / freeShop folder to sdmc: / 3ds / freeShop using your computer or GM9.

    freeShop v4 - Community Edition

    Below you can download the Community Edition of freeShop.
    No major changes have been made for the end user.
    For developers there is now a Vagrantfile available to simplify development and building of cpp3ds / 3ds_portlibs.
    See the wiki of the fork for details.

    Oh and this as usual:
    Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments.

    PicoDrive 3DS the Megadrive and Master System Emulator for Nintendo 3DS has been updated, heres whats new:

    v0.93 Released (28 Jan 2018)

    Against those who still own the old 3DS / 2DS or still care about the 3DS ... and if you still want to enjoy Sega MD games on your Old 3DS / 2DS at full speed:

    This is a port of nota's PicoDrive emulator to the old 3DS / 2DS. Although PicoDrive is already highly optimized for ARM processors, if it's still running, it's still in its infancy for mega games on the old 3DS / 2DS, as it's in the RetroArch's version. So this port is heavily loaded on the 3DS '2nd core to emulate the FM synthesized music for the YM2612 FM chip to achieve 60 FPS. But the 2nd core on the old 3DS is not enough to generate a synthesized music at a full 44100Hz, so sounds are generated at 30000Hz on an Old 3DS. It sounds ok for many games, except for those who use high-pitched notes or sound samples.

    The screen rendering is done completely using the original PicoDrive's ARM processor-optimized renderer.

    You can play Master System, Mega Drive games and Sega CD games, and 32X games. CD games run a little slower (you should enable 1-2 frameskips) on an Old 3DS, but it runs very well on a New 3DS. 32X games can only be played on a new 3DS using the .CIA version of the emulator. Some dynarec instructions for 32X games will crash the emulator (Virtual Fighter, Virtual Racing Deluxe have this issue).

    The default maps for the controls are:
    1. 3DS 'Y Button -> MD's A Button,
    2. 3DS' B Button -> MD's B Button,
    3. 3DS 'A Button -> MD's C Button,
    4. 3DS' X Button -> MD's X Button,
    5. 3DS 'L Button -> MD's Y Button,
    6. 3DS' R Button -> MD's Z Button

    This emulator uses the same user interface as VirtuaNES for 3DS, TemperPCE for 3DS, Snes9x for 3DS. It will run better on the New 3DS as usual, where all music and sound samples will be generated at 44100Hz.

    Putting up v0.93 for download:

    v0.93 Release Notes:

    - Fixed a sound bug that plays the previous sound from a CD-ROM game when you load up an SMS ROM.
    - Re-ordered region priority to US, JP, EU.
    - Added support for .32x extensions and 32X games.
    (but some games like Virtual Fighter, Virtual Racing Deluxe causes the emulator to crash, just like the RetroArch versions)
    - Fixed ASM version of the 32X rendering routines to prevent crashing, and blackthorne games.
    - Fixed the frame-rate bug that is not consistent with the frame-rate selected in the menu.
    - Enabled 32X / SVP dynarec when running in CIA mode and the necessary custom firmware is available.
    - Sets the default mapping for Sega MD's X, Y, Z buttons.
    - Fixed a read-ahead library bug that front caused small ISO games to boot to the CD player.
    - Fixed minor sound emulation issues and improved sound sync.
    - Fixed YM2612 timer bug.
    - Implemented more aggressive optimzation of the YM2612 assembly emulation. Less skipping in some games on the Old 3DS.
    - Fixed playing PWM samples by the DC Offset of the waveform (CSND is unable to reliably play the samples with a significant DC offset)

    Derrek, profi200, d0k3 have released a homebrew bootloader for the Nintendo 3DS that is similar to android's fastboot. Quote: 'fastboot3DS is a bootloader for the 3DS console, intended to be installed to the FIRM0 partition.
