    Isn't updating with A9LH and Luma safe? The guide had a note saying that it is ok to update the system.

    Actually you are for believing that Chrome's flagging is accurate.
    Here is a little tip: 99% of tools are flagged on this site but are totally safe.

    That's normal.

    When you run an executable that uses the Windows command console it will terminate the console as soon as the program that you ran returns to the console. Command line based programs such as git use a set of options and parameters to determine the program's behavior each time it is run. Omitting any options or parameters typically triggers the help dialog which is printed once after which the program terminates and control is returned to the command line interpreter. If you want the command line interpreter to persist after the program has been run, the correct solution is to run the program from within an open command window rather than by double clicking on it. So, run cmd.exe first and work from there.

    I wrote a script to automate this process. Useful for if you need to mass convert 3dsx files.
    Heres the link.

    When it gets converted, it loses the c-stick, ZL and ZR button functionality... Any idea why? (it might be nothing to do with your script idk but thanks anyway everything other than that did work)

    I dont think its a problem with my script, because all it does is run a loop to go through all of the files

    Are you 100% sure the game you're playing makes use of those controls anyway? Most 3DS games have no mapping for those buttons regardless, newer ones may but most do not.

    I guess there is no harm in asking so I'll just go ahead and ask.

    I used cxitool and makerom to successfully convert ctr-httpwn into a cia file, and I installed it on my 11.2 n3ds. However, although I can run it, it gives this error and stops: "failed to load http sysmodule codebin: 0xd9004676"

    Anyone know what I can do to make it work as a cia?

    To be clear, whether or not I can make it work as a cia, I don't plan on updating unless if I have some actual reason to beyond temporarily being able to bypass update nags at the cost of probably never being able to use ctr-httpwn again (outside of restoring to a nand backup) which would have handled the update nags for me anyway. Converting it to a cia is merely a matter of convenience for me, because it cuts out the HBL step.

    has anybody converted the HBL with this? Did it work (or not?) if, not... why the heck not? I don't see why in the land of a9lh and b9s, a payload is required to launch the HBL. I'm at work so I'm unable to test it myself. Need to remember this thread when I get home today...


    EDIT: so I tried it and it doesn't do much. It freezes on the splash screen. So it says "Homebrew" in the middle of the top screen and on the bottom of the bottom screen.
