3DS Custom Firmware “Pasta CFW” has been updated to Version 1.3 (beta3). Most important feature for this update is “Firmlaunch”. Firmlaunch lets you spoof your New 3DS firmware to 9.5 and Old 3DS firmware to 9.6.
Pasta CFW is a custom firmware for 3DS. It lets you install and run unsigned .cia files. It is an open source project and new features are added by every update. Right now, it works up to 9.2 firmwares on both original and new 3ds. It requires a Cubic Ninja cartridge to boot. If you are on 4.x original 3DS, you can also use the DS Profile (MSET) exploit, this way you won’t need Cubic Ninja.
Pasta CFW can do things Gateway can’t (GBA/DSiWare games booting, being able to use SaveDataFiler to extract saves from retail cartridges) and can’t do some things Gateway can (EmuNAND support, MSET support for new 3DS via downgraded system settings, spider entry point for original 3DS). Still Pasta CFW is a good alternative, it doesn’t need a flashcart, it is open source and developers behind it are open to suggestions.
With the latest update, Pasta CFW can use Firmlaunch. “FIRMLAUNCH is a feature that allow launching titles that requires a higher FIRM version that the one you have.” says motezazer, one of the developers of Pasta CFW. Think of it like a firmware spoofer, it is not the same thing but you get the idea. Right now it supports up to 9.5 fw on New 3DS and 9.6 fw on original 3DS. Thanks to this update, Xenoblade Chronicles which need 9.3 firmware finally works on New 3DS via Pasta CFW. As there is still no way to have gateway/custom firmwares on firmwares above 9.2, this feature is a great addition to Pasta CFW. Also WIP features include EmuNAND support and spider entry point. I can’t wait to see these features included in Pasta CFW.
