3DS Cheats with Checkpoint (Sharkive)

This guide will show you how to use cheat codes in your 3DS games using the Rosalina menu’s built-in cheat manager. Checkpoint features a cheats database that can be used to save cheats that can be activated via the Rosalina menu during gameplay. This was previous a feature of a homebrew app called Sharkive, which has since been merged into the latest version of Checkpoint. Codes are activated by pressing [L] + [Down] + [Select] during gameplay for the Rosalina menu and selecting the [Cheats…] option.
