    ok so i see that *hax 2.5 is out but im wondering if i really need it? i really like the screenshot and HANS feature but im using autobooting RxTools via themehax so i doubt its even relevant to me...

    Actually there is a place where you should ask all your questions and is located in this very same sub-forum, no need to make a new thread every time you have a question:

    very unorganized, a dedicated Questions thread or 3ds general thread would be much better. theres one for random systems HERE but if i post there then no 3ds owners will reply.
    now back on topic.

    How do you expect people to tell you what you do and don't need.....I'm not understanding this thread.

    again -__- your missing the point im NOT asking for what i need i asking if i can use the new *hax 2.5 payload on my autobooting RXtools.
    i may have worded the thread title wrong but i trusted that people can read.

    if things are working fine for you now, the next question is what does 2.5 now include that the previous version didn't have?

    a couple that i see are
    • Global screenshots (screenshots anywhere)
    • sleep fixed and power button fixed in homebrew launcher
    • some kind of background running apps via HANS engine (game enhancement/ N3ds clocking options/romhacking)
    although it seems most of this stuff is taken care in the homebrew launcher im curious about the payload information and if i can apply it in rxtools seeing how themehax also uses a payload.

    do your own reading about something that you want to know.

    Do you need the HANS engine? I've heard some improvements.

    NTR 3.0 has screenshot feature (the default one and another one that fixes some issues) and something similar to HANS (layeredFS plugin). Don't know how they compare though

    Since no one else seems to be answering your specific question...

    At this time you probably cannot use the new 2.5 payloads with rxTools. You will most likely need to wait for the rxTools team to update their own payloads to work with the newer payloads for *hax 2.5. Nearest I can tell the ONLY think that 2.5 is adding that seems unique and not readily available to someone on 9.2 or lower (and thus able to use rxTools or another CFW) is the rom editing features of HANS. Unless you are REALLY set on editing/hacking a rom (and it looks like its more "customize the game" and less "infinite health") then just stick with whatever payload you are using atm that works for your setup.

    Smea released a whole video with this version update explaining all the new features... how is it not enough information ?



    But, being a 9.0 user myself, I gotta say the e-Shop spoof is very nice to have.

    NTR is closed source and useless to me. But that plugin system is something of envy
