As you may know from this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/linux-for-3ds.388658 I’ve managed to get Linux booting on the Nintendo 3DS.

Since I’m using Brahma2, it will only work on FW less or equal than 9.2.

Currently the environment is very simple, you have Busybox (which “simulates” some programs like ls, cat, top, etc) and Weston (the Wayland compositor) plus a few Weston clients demos (don’t expect me to try to run the X server).

And a quote from the ReadMe:
