Homebrew Launcher (Soundhax)

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

Soundhax is compatible with versions 9.0.0 through 11.2.0 in the EUR, JPN, KOR, and USA regions.

What you need


  1. Copy the contents of the starter folder in starter.zip to the root of your SD card
  2. Copy the Soundhax .m4a to the root of your SD card
  3. Copy the otherapp payload to the root of your SD card and rename it to otherapp.bin
  4. Reinsert your SD card into your 3DS
  5. Launch Nintendo 3DS Sound
  6. Go through all of the bird tips, then close the app normally and reopen it
    • Launching Soundhax immediately would cause these tips to appear on every launch of the Nintendo 3DS Sound until this is done
  7. Go to /SDCARD, then play “<3 nedwill 2016”
    • This may take many tries
    • If it freezes, just force the console to power off by holding the power button, then try again
  8. Your console should load the Homebrew Launcher
