Regionthree is a region free game loader for the Nintendo 3DS developed by smealum. The loader currently supports System Menu versions up to 9.4. It does not currently support the new Nintendo 3DS and new Nintendo 3DS XL. Support for these consoles is not planned, but anyone is free to modify the source code to add it.
In order to start the loader, the following steps have to be followed:
- Place the regionthree Launcher.dat in the root of your 3DS SD card.
- Insert the game you want to play in your 3DS.
- Open the Download Play application.
- Without doing anything, go back to the Home menu by pressing the Home button. Do not close the Download Play application.
- Open the 3DS web browser and navigate to the Gateway 3DS Ultra exploit page or any other browser exploit launcher.
- Wait a few seconds and the loader should start.
