Homebrew Launcher (Alternatives)

The Homebrew Launcher has many different entrypoints, or methods of launching.

If you do not already own any of these games and do not have another 3DS that can access the Homebrew Launcher, the cheapest option is to buy a “Nintendo Selects” copy of Ocarina of Time 3D (ensure you get the correct cartridge for your region) and a Powersaves (compatible with all regions), then use oot3dhax from the chart below.
