    This didn't happen to me when I ran RXTools. Try A9LH

    You most likely need to update your version of Luma3DS. As well if you are launching it from a bootloader, you need to make sure custom paths in the options is on as well.
    Although I highly suggest installing A9LH.

    Actually, if the game boots and soft-locks on a black screen, it's not a seed issue. It's an issue with reboot patches. Basically the game is trying to get more memory and the CFW is letting that happen.

    Other thing I forgot to ask the OP, do you have the "arm9loaderhax.bin" in the root of your SD card? You need that no matter what entry you are using because all the payloads are tethered to that.

    That's your problem, all of the patches are tethered to the file, regardless of the entrypoint used.

    You don't have to install A9LH to have it working, you just need the proper launcher. Luma3DS tethers all of the patches the "arm9loaderhax.bin" file. Without that in the root of your SD card, you can't use the patches. Simply put that file into the root of your SD card and MH4 should start working.

    you can download the arm9loaderhax.bin file here (ver 6.6.7) Just unzip and place the extracted file at the root of the sd card
