This is a homebrew program that downloads the latest version of mashers's Homebrew Launcher with grid layout.

It uses a modified Lua Player Plus by Rinnegatamante, removing non-essential features to greatly reduce filesize. It is based on this commit. The source of this is contained at extra/lpp-3ds-strip.zip. Please see the original repository for technical details.

Installation

This updater can be added to the grid launcher's settings menu by placing mglupdate.3dsx and index.lua in /gridlauncher/update/.

Otherwise, extract it any place you like (e.g. /3ds/mglupdate/).

User guide

Run the program and the program will attempt to show you the latest version available.

Press A to download and apply the update.

Notes

The site part is meant to download and cache the last version number (version.h) and launcher.zip from masher's Homebrew Launcher. This is done because ctrulib can't download from HTTPS sites right now.

Some of this was quickly put together and not made to be easily changed for use in the future. The server-side code could definitely be optimized in some way, but it fits the purpose for the time being.

If you are setting up a custom updater, the enable folder in the site should be password protected.
