    First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong section to post this on I made an account just for help on this, so if I made a mistake correct me.
    Anyways, I'm having problems getting soundhax to work. Basically when opening the file on the sound player it boots up, shows some text, and then sticks to a black screen on top and a red screen on the bottom. [​IMG]
    Every source that covers this problem states that the boot.3dsx file isn't present or at the root of the SD card however i've check multiple times and it's there. [​IMG] So now I don't know what to do all the files are correct, i've replaced and even flashed the SD card (Of course I made a backup) and I have no idea what to do. I've done everything all my sources are telling me to do with no results.
    Please help me as I am clueless. Thanks.

    Enable the "display file extensions" on windows and check that your files are not called something like "otherapp.bin.bin"
    Check also that you're using the correct otherapp and try renaming the .m4a file to "soundhax.m4a"
    Just in case, redownload the boot.3dsx too https://smealum.github.io/ninjhax2/starter.zip

    Try deleting boot.3dsx? I'm not absolutely sure about this, but I remember when I hacked mine, I don't recall ever putting a boot.3dsx file on the root of my sd card. Again, I'm not sure, this still needs confirmation if it is indeed true.

    Also, in 3ds.guide, nowhere at any point does the guide tell you of a boot.3dsx file at the soundhax installation process. Hmm...

    EDIT: IGNORE THIS LOL IM DUMB

    Thought this wouldn't work, tried it and the same thing happened. Thanks for the shot though.

    Did you try any other entrypoint?
    Delete the otherapp.bin, the .m4a file and the boot.3dsx and try these
    https://filetrip.net/dl?TRTEgzlBCD
    If it still does not work, I don't know what else could be...

    edit: Is your SD card formatted correctly? fat32 32 kb cluster?
    As you already said, the red screen usually means that the boot.3dsx file is not found, so maybe is not a soundhax problem

    not even the sound file you gave would open. I honestly don't understand why it's not working. Looking up for an answer i've come to the conclusion the hack can't find the file which is ridiculous because in the previous picture everything is in the location it should be.
    edit: now I can't even delete the files you sent.

    Ok, give this a shot:
    Go to any app in your "3ds" folder, copy any .3dsx file from there, paste it on your SD's root and rename it as "boot.3dsx" (replace the older one)
    Try again and see if you're able to boot the app you just copies the .3dsx from

    I chose the file install.3dsx and renamed it to boot.3dsx and placed at the root of the card, tried it and and it won't even boot to the first image and instead crashes my system outright

    Try the ftpd.3dsx better. I don't have any clue what could be causing the problem though

    check you FW version (look in you system setting) and make you you have the right payload file that the same as you FW AND 3ds type

    and redownload the payload
    go to
    http://smealum.github.io/3ds/

    and go to Otherapp/ropbin payloads section
    and set the right values that match your 3ds
    then pick download otherapp
    rename it otherapp.bin
    put in on the root of your SD card
    you can also just get the boot.3dsx and put that on the root of the SD card as well

    make sure you are also using the right sound file (m4a) for you region and system type

    As previously mentioned everything you suggested (Ryupower) has been tried. Also I tried the ftpd file and the same result happened.
    Edit: I apologise for the long wait in a response

    Did you try with a different SD card?

    I do not own a different sd card. Also, now it won't even go to the screen at the beginning of the thread and instead just crashes. It's like we've gone backwards.

    I would say then, to try to run the ftpd.3dsx renamed as boot.3dsx but using the payload/m4a files you were using at the beginning (I just downloaded the files from smea's github and soundhax's github though)
    Maybe you could also make a backup of your whole SD card, format it, and paste back the backup and see if something changes

    You need it on FAT32 32Kb cluster.
    If your SD is too big, you may need an external program in order to be able to format it
