Installing Nintendo 3DS emulator on a jailbroken iOS device
If you’re on an iOS 11 or iOS 12 device running a jailbreak (either through the LiberiOS utility or otherwise), then follow these simple steps.
- Launch Cydia
- Search for ‘Nintendo 3DS Emulator’ and proceed with the installation.
- When the installation is complete, the Nintendo 3DS will be added to the home screen, ready for launch.
The upside to this method is that, installation of third-party apps on a jailbroken iOS device is quite straight-forward and side-loaded apps through Cydia don’t usually feature annoying advertisements. The downsides of running a jailbreak are that it voids your device’s warranty and takes a little bit of technical prowess to execute safely.
Installing Nintendo 3DS emulator without a jailbreak
If you’re running an iOS device without a jailbreak, you can successfully install Nintendo 3DS emulator by using third-party stores and Apple’s third-party certificates. Simply proceed with the steps below:
- Download and install ‘AppValley’ from Safari Browser. AppValley is a Cydia installer which features a lot of Cydia tweaks without the need to run a jailbreak.
- Search for ‘Nintendo 3DS Emulator for iOS 12’ from the AppValley store.
- Download and install the emulator.
Hopefully this guide on the Nintendo 3DS Emulator for iOS 12 has you re-living your glory days on the Nintendo 3DS right from the comfort and convenience of your everyday iOS 12 device.
