Required Reading

Bannerbomb3 is an exploit for the DSiWare Management Menu, compatible with system versions 11.16 and lower for all regions excluding the iQue 3DS since it doesn't have that menu. The main developer is zoogie.

It's the main primary exploit used on the main guide, unSAFE_MODE and BB3(Bannerbomb3)+Fredtool both use it. It can be used to prepare the secondary exploits unSAFE_MODE(you can find this on the main guide) or menuhax67, both made by the legend zoogie. This page covers preparing menuhax67 to access the Homebrew Launcher since accessing the Homebrew Launcher from Bannerbomb3 directly is not possible. On the next page you will find out how to access the Homebrew Launcher with menuhax67. Note that with a crashing DSiWare Management Menu, this method won't work.

The instructions described here only work with EUR/USA/JPN/KOR, if you want to use Taiwan for some odd reason, no you don't want that, use the normal guide instead to install custom firmware.

What you need

  • The latest version of Luma3DS (the Luma3DS .zip file)
  • The latest version of Bannerbomb3 (the Release .zip file)
  • Your movable.sed file from completing Seedminer
  • The latest version of menuhax67 (the menuhax67 .zip file)


Section I - Prep Work

  1. Insert the SD card of your target 3DS in your computer
  2. Copy boot.firm and boot.3dsx from the Luma3DS .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
  3. Copy the Launcher.dat for your region/version from the Release .zip to the root of your SD card
  4. Copy the bb3.bin from the Release .zip to the root of your SD card
