    A9LH > AuReiNand, usally with > MenuHax > Gateway.

    I can boot into sysNAND and play homebrew, emulators, and GBA games, as well as any installed games from the eShop or CIA. Or I can boot into 9.0 firmware and launch Gateway from MenuHax and play the 3DS ROMs on my cart.

    I first started with Gateway, and i hated it. I seriously only took it for smash bros 3DS to play it early at the time. My first good CFW i started with was Rxtools, a year ago. Back then i had to launch through Cubic Ninja all the time. Then, i discovered CakesFW so i got on it. At that moment i went Cake combo browserhax. With my N3DS, when the actual downgrade exploit was released back in january, i went with Reinand (that i liked because of the version string patch mostly. I like when it says out loud what is my CFW) with browser hax. About a month ago i found plailect's tutorial for A9LH so after a bit of reflexion, i decided to go with it, and so i switched with Aureinand.

    So far i like Aureinand with A9LH. Not a pro of CFW so i cant really tell much that makes differents each of them, but for sure A9LH is master race.

    Edit: Oh and i also tried Sky 3DS 2nd gen between Gateway and Rxtools. About 2 week before the new security check went on. What a waste of money. I only use it now when i need cubic ninja as a first entry point.

    Edit 2: I will probably someday go back to Reinand, only because i prefer official than fork.

    What can AuReinand do what rxTools can't?
    Does AuReinand run in emuNAND?

    Which is ridiculous fanboyism when you consider the main CFW developers all seem to help and freely borrow from each other without any acrimony.

    Each custom firmware got its special place for everyone, as example Palentine and giovaniffy, i remember the days when u needed to hold L while entering to rednand so u could send a cia installer trough wifi.

    then RxTools came, i myself never used Cakes.

    Went from Menuhax -> HBL -> ReiNAND (CTRBootManager never worked for me) 10 days ago
    to A9LH -> AuReiNAND 5 days ago
    Best decision I have ever made.

    I use MenuHax and RXTools.
    Why not a better option, like arm9loaderhax or something?
    Because I got it working first and I don't want to change it.

    Just because it was your first doesn't mean it should be your last/only.

    Let me rephrase. I'm too lazy to change it.

    I like Palantine, because it lets me inject my Gateway-formatted Nand into my RedNand, launched through DS Profile, and a stunningly high 60% boot success rate: It even changes to a blue color to let me know it crashed!

    Not every CFW can install .cias only if they're below the ver 7.0 encryption, and Palantine has just what I need!

    I'm amazed such an incredible CFW exists, and still boots up with a blue top screen! Thanks for sharing, I'm definitely updating to this!

    rxTools + Browserhax, just because it was what was most recommended when I set up emuNAND, and I'm not in the mood to set anything else up right now, partially because I'm still having emuNAND issues from when I swapped SD cards. I'm planning on switching to AuReiNAND + NTR and maybe A9LH soon.
