    As far as we all know, the scene has been very active the past months, and 10.3 o3ds and n3ds can now downgrade to 9.2 and install a cfw of choice, following this thread.

    This will inevitably lead to a lot of new users coming here with a lot of noob questions, and while the downgrading process is itself pretty simple, installing a cfw (for example rxtools) is not because those tutorials are all outdated (from june to september).

    I know this is a pretty pointless thread, but I think someone smart and brave enough should post a tutorial following the whole process from 10.3 to cfw in order to run unsigned .cia, considering the most popular options (cakes, pasta, and so on).

    While that tutorial may work, it is not optimized for old 3ds users. More importantly, there are several tutorials around that just confuse people. One thing is learning how to read, but what I think its better is to a have one single update tutorial that optimizes time and resources regarding the actual scene.

    Please be realistic about the situation here, this method was released really short time ago and people don't know all the details about it.

    There is no way to create an ultimate guide with everything you need to know (when we don't know everything yet) and have everyone in the whole forum on it when we are talking about a method released in less than a 24 hours...

    Maybe people should be a little more patient don't you think???

    no, i don't. I agree with tthe OP but with a index instead of a new tutorial. We already have a lot of threads for newbies who want to learn more. However they preffer to make a lot of new threads with already answered questions, hiding useful threads about homebrews and new tools. If they want to learn, they have to research or at least learn how to use the search bar.

    Black screen rxtools homemenuhax problem..
    I just downgraded my o3ds 10.3 to 9.2 and installed rxtools by coldboot cfw something involving homemenuhax. Now I could load emunand by pressing R on boot. After I did so,I went to my Pokémon SMD on emunand. It said that it had to be updated to 9.9 to work. I updated it and I was on emunand at that time but now I'm getting this message when I press r or normally (sysnand and emunand)
    Preparing to start the homemenu and then I get a black screen...
    What do I do to fix this !? I'm really tensed bout this,pls reply fast..thanks...

    Any thread where people is talking about installs/issues.

    ^^^ See? This is what I'm talking about, no matter how hard you try people don't take the necessary time to find what they are looking for, so they just ask anywhere...

    Try removing the SD card and rebooting your system.

    Just downgrade back down from 9.9 to 9.2 again, just the same as doing 10.3 to 9.2. And you can't use a game to update emunand I believe as it will update the sysnand instead.
