    Excuse me, if this has been asked on the forum, i didnt found anything similar.

    So I have a friends 3DS and installed RX tools on it. Its 4.5 Sysnand and 10.3 Emunand.

    Is there a possibility to boot on RXtools without using everytime the mset exploit.

    For example hold a button while turning the 3ds on.

    Thanks for answers and happy holidays

    I followed everything in this guide below , and it worked great!
    As @kennyhi123 mentioned.. Update to 9.0 or 9.2 after that you can use the cold boot method to launch it directly to CFW.

    Follow this guide and you are set to go!
    (look at the bottom in the tutorial for how to update to 9.0-9.2 AND how to cold boot it)
    There is 2 different methods on how to coldboot it, i choosed this one: "Launching rxTools at boot - Menuhax!"

    Oh, this is news to me, never thouhght we would be reaching PSP-levels of customization. Anyways, it looks like n3DS owners are being left out of the boat again.
    What a shame, i keep regretting buying this jap n3DS more and more every time. Damn you custom plates, why do you have to be so sexy...

    not really you can do anything on a N3DS that is fw-9/9.2 than you can on old 3ds well you cant Emunand higher than 9.5 fw but that doesnt matter, you do however get a faster cpu for games

    That being said, not all rxTools features work on N3DS yet. I think I remember CakesFW was recommended for N3DS over rxTools, but rxTools works for most things people might want to do (which is sig patches for playing pirated .cias and firmlaunch for firmware spoof.)
    And I'm pretty sure as more nightlies come out, more features become supported for N3DS.
