What's in the zip

* blargSnes.3ds -- 3DS ROM. Useful for Gateway.
* blargSnes.cia -- Installable version
* blargSnes folder -- files for use with the Homebrew Launcher
* blargSnes.elf -- ELF file. May be useful for alternate homebrew loaders. Provided for the sake of completeness.

How to use

You need a way to run ARM11 userland homebrew on your 3DS.


Copy blargSnes.3ds to the Gateway's MicroSD.

Due to limitations, you will not get sound if you use this method.

Homebrew Launcher / Ninjhax

Copy the blargSnes folder into the 3ds folder on your SD card.

Due to limitations, you will not get sound if you use this method on a New 3DS. 'Old' 3DS users will get sound.

Also note that sleep mode (closing your 3DS) and the Home button don't work when using this method.
