    hey I had my old 3ds with Cfw not fully sure what I had on it I know I have rxtools but not sure what else. My buddy did the update when he went to play and now it goes to boot up shows the writing stuff, coloured screens then the rxtools screen flashes then all goes black. Is there any hope?

    why
    if you still have a 9.2 sysnand then drop RXTools (which you should have ages ago) and install a9lh

    Switch to Luna and you will be fine. Assuming you had A9LH.

    Why do you still have RXTools? I think you're shit out of luck. Sorry

    Switch to Luma3DS. The best way is by following this guide: http://3ds.guide/
    You can also just download the latest Luma3DS hourly from here: https://astronautlevel2.github.io/Luma3DS/
    Extract boot.3dsx (from the menuhax folder), Luma3DS.dat (from the mset-spider folder) and arm9loaderhax.bin to your SD card. Upon reboot the Luma3DS config should show up, enable "Show current NAND in System Settings" and press start.
    His sysNAND isn't updated, he just needs to switch to Luma.

    Because I don't use it often and haven't played it for months

    I'll take a look at these links and hopefully figure it out thank you

    Edit: so do the first link to install? Then second links and what you have there is when I want to update luma down the road?

    The first sentence/link is what you should do to install A9LH.
    The second part is a quick fix to use Luma with your current menuhax setup.

    I'd recommend following the guide as A9LH offers numerous advantages over menuhax.

    I'm having difficulty getting into sysnand to do the install. I know the emunand was loaded up when it got updated but when I go to get into sysnand some writing comes up and then the screen flashes green and then yellow (sometimes it freezes here) then if it gets past it will freeze on a red screen and then that's that... any ideas

    Sounds like a boot loop to me. You need to uninstall menuhacks first by changing your theme, then you need to either use Soundhax or another free entrypoint to access homebrew and continue.

    Perhaps it was removed on a later version to make way for SafeCTRNAND. Find an older version or use the other program.
