From GameBrew - a wiki dedicated to Video Game Homebrew.
Pixelchat is a drop-in replacement for Miiverse, which serves basically as a web-based Pictochat.
As I'm one of the team members for Rverse, I've included a button to redirect to Rverse in case you're interested in a more traditional Miiverse experience too. (But yeah, Rverse is back up!)
For the patch to access Pixelchat Beta, download this: https://codehusky.com/pixelchat-patch.zip You shouldn't have any issues when running these patches, but as always, I'm not responsible if you break something on your console.
- Download the patch.
- Using your PC or Phone, extract the contents on the zip to the root of your SD Card. The zip contains 2 folders, 3ds and luma. Extract the folders in the same place you see them. If you're asked if you want to overwrite the contents of the folders, please allow it to continue. It won't overwrite any file unless you're updating a previous patch install.
- Insert the SD Card onto your 3DS if you haven't done yet, and press and hold the Select button while you power on your 3DS to access your Luma3DS configuration. Once there, make sure you have enabled the Enable game patching setting and press the Start button to save.
- You're done. The only thing left to do is to open the Miiverse icon on your HOME menu and you'll see Pixelchat.

Keep in mind that the chat currently is like account-less IRC and doesn't have much for moderation at the moment. I can (and will) blacklist IPs if people are abusing the service however. Please don't make me do that.
If you have any suggestions, concerns, or anything else, let me know!
