Thoroughly read all of the introductory pages (including this one!) before proceeding.
Custom firmwares (CFW) are software modifications for the numworks. They allow you to do anything that the Numworks is physically capable of doing, rather than being limited by whatever Numworks allows you to do.
Popular uses for CFW include:
- Running homebrew software and games made for or ported to the Numworks
- Installing emulators
- Installing KhiCAS, a very powerful Computer Algebra Software
- Installing others CFW, like Omega, Upsilon or Khi
