    First things first, I came across many threads like this but they were outdated and they didn't have a poll. Now, with all new tools released to brick downgrade your 3DS, I think it's time to ask this question again.
    In my opinion rxTools beats them all on the old 3DS, but what about the New 3DS? Does it still beat them all on Nintendo's New handheld? Or is there another one that manages to offer better compatibility, more features and, most importantly, stability?
    Make you choice in the poll above!
    BTW, no EmuNAND => no Pasta. Sorry.

    Cakes is simplest and easiest. Rxtools has too many versions.

    boot success rate with cakes cfw? for me with Rx it is same as it is with loading GW emuNAND , mostly 90% success rate out of 10 times only one time it might get stuck or freeze during boot.

    I've never had any freezing issue with cakes. So there's another reason to go with cakes over rxtools it looks like.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    N3DS XL (EUR), Downgrade from 10.3 to 9.2, Setup Emunand 9.2 and updated it to 9.5

    I have all 4 setup in ctrbootmanager
    - CakesCFW (autoboot if no choice is given, simple CFW, not much can go wrong with it)
    - rxTools (Great CFW with if you boot into rxTools Menu, you have to know what you do!, great for xorpads to create cia's)
    - ReiNand (playing with it since it's new for me, ReiNand wasn't available for O3DS, still haven't gotten it to work :/ )
    - Gateway (nice to have it there :) )

    You have to setup your boot.cfg like this:

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions! It seems RxTools still has the lead here. Do all CFWs require Free Multi Patcher on N3DS? Do any of these CFWs miss even one of the following features?:
    • EmuNAND
    • Signature patching
    • Region free
    • Launching SysNAND with AND without firmlaunch (Pasta/DevMode) (not at the same time)
