Required Reading

freakyhax is an exploit for the game Freakyforms Deluxe discovered and released by plutooo allowing us to launch the Homebrew Launcher on versions 9.0.0 through 11.17.0 on EUR, USA, or JPN region devices.

In the instructions, we only cover launching the exploit on version 11.7.0-11.17.0. If you want to use an older version, you can use the otherapp payload from smea's page. Select your version, model and region on the page and use it like one from unSAFE_MODEs .zip's otherapps_with_CfgS. If you don't understand this, read the instructions first.

What you need

  1. Power off your device
  2. Insert your SD card into your computer
  3. Copy all files and folders inside the /build/<your console and region>/exploit/ folder from the freakyhax .zip to the root of your SD card
    • The root of the SD card refers to the initial directory on your SD card where you can see the Nintendo 3DS folder, but are not inside of it
  4. Copy the otherapp payload for your region/version/model from the otherapps .zip file to the root of your SD card and rename it to otherapp.bin
