    BootNTR CFW can be useful for several reasons. If you're one of those who can't figure out how it works and want to make use of it's features, this'll be a guide on how it works.

    What is BootNTR CFW?
    BootNTR CFW, like the title says, is a CFW. This CFW works differently from others because it runs directly on top of your existing CFW as a layer. Example, if you're running Luma3DS CFW, you can run BootNTR CFW over it at the same time.

    What can BootNTR CFW do?
    1. It can run cheat plugins which you can toggle while you're in-game at anytime. Something to have fun with, or to help you quickly recover a lost save file by rushing through with invincibility, etc.

    2. It can stream your 3DS screen to a computer, which you can then stream on Twitch or Youtube Gaming. This only works on new 3DS since it has the CPU speed necessary for streaming. It's not completely perfect, with the bottom screen having more of a delay. But it definitely works to stream gameplay. Look up videos on Youtube for demonstrations on it's performance.

    How to install BootNTR CFW
    First off this guide assumes you're using Luma3DS CFW and either Arm9loaderhax or EmuNAND.

    1. Download the cia for the latest release of BootNTR
    2. Download BootNTR 's bin file

    New 3DS: 3.4 Preview 2

    Old 3DS: NTR 3.2

    3. Place the NTR.bin file on the root of the SD card
    4. turn on your 3DS and install BootNTR.cia

    Done, you can now launch BootNTR CFW from the home menu. As a tip, you should let the home menu load up before launching BootNTR or else it might fail to load up BootNTR.

    How to use cheat plugins
    Start by making a folder on the root of your SD card called "plugin"

    Now you need to make a folder within the plugin folder corresponding to the TitleID of the game.
    Depending on where you download plugins, it may or may not include a titleID folder.
    You can find titleID's HERE

    Example: SD:/plugin/0004000000055D00/cheat.plg
    For Pokemon X

    The .plg file (Plugin) can be named anything.

    You can find cheat plugins on many different sites, here's some that I recommend:

    NTR Wiki
    Elotrolado (Translate the page to read the cheats) (Bookmark this page to refer to how to use the cheats)
    speedfly (Can be difficult to look through)

    Game specific pages:

    Animal Crossing New Leaf
    Fire Emblem Fates
    Pokemon XY/ORAS
    Zelda Ocarina of Time

    Once you place the cheat plugins on your SD card, you can launch BootNTR CFW, then launch the game you plan to use cheats on. The screen will flash green when launching a game, this is normal. As a note, you cannot launch any other game or app until you power off the 3DS, else you'll be in a 3DS logo loop.

    Now once you're in-game, there's several different ways of loading the plugin's menu depending on the plugin. I'll list a few common ones:
    1. Press select to bring up the plugin's menu
    2. Hold start or select and press one of the D-pad directions (Cheats from Elotrolado are like this)
    3. Press X+Y and scroll down to the cheat plugin

    But it all depends where you get the plugin, the page you got it from would tell you exactly how to use the cheats. It can be tricky to use cheat plugins, and sometimes the cheat does nothing. It takes some trial and error to see what works and what doesn't.
