If you still do not know and intendo to use the freeshop to download eshop 3ds games in 2017, now you can not do that. Why? Because when you head to freeShop listing on GitHub, you’ll be greeted with a DMCA takedown notice. You can read the whole notice from Nintendo here too. So with the removing of freeShop, how can we play free 2017 eshop 3ds games and 3ds cart games on 3DS or NEW 3DS console? In this article, you can find answer.
What is Freeshop and Is it still working in 2017?
This is a homebrew software designed to imitate Nintendo’s eShop. It allows you to browse and search games, and download ones you own (i.e. games for which you have the titlekey). Most people, however, know Freeshop as a thing you can use to download entire 3DS games, free of charge (hence the name). Currently, Freeshop’s main distribution source was hit with a DMCA notice.
1. Install the CIA file on your CFW of choice (preferably one removing region restrictions). Do NOT ask about CFW issues in this thread.
2. Put an encTitleKeys.bin file in the directory sdmc:/3ds/data/freeShop/keys/ or go to update settings in freeShop and add a URL to auto-download (recommended).
3. Launch freeShop and enjoy.
