    Hello all, hope everyone's having a great day. I was hoping someone could lend a bit of help/insight as to why I can't for the life of me get CHMM to work. Just got my sky3ds today for my N3DS ver. 9.1.0-20J. sky3ds --> cubic ninja --> homebrew. so far, so good. I went to download CHMM2 (I also tried the earlier version) and place the files in the proper directories on my microSD card. filenames matching folder names and everything. CHMM2 appears in the homebrew menu, but as soon as I run it I get a red screen on the bottom, some code on the top (for about half a second), and then nothing but two black screens. At this point I can't do anything. Pressing Home, Power, anything, just does absolutely nothing. I have to perform a hard shutoff (holding down the power button). Again, with the correct files in the correct folders, and even the most recent boot.3dsx from smea, I don't see why it's not working. If anyone could at least point me in the right direction I'd certainly be grateful. Thanks you in advance.

    Edit: I've been searching for answers for the past hour or so, and I'm still looking. So I don't want anyone to think that I'm just waiting to be spoon-fed the answers. I have no problem doing research of my own for problem solving, but right now I've got nothing, and I'm not any closer to finding what's wrong.

    So this is a common issue? Has anyone narrowed down the determining factors?

    I'm pretty sure it's the last one. It was in one of his tweets. Going back to try and find it now.

    Try to start Cubic Ninja from retail cartridge instead of from Sky3DS and see if it works. Probably it's an issue related to Sky3DS cartridge.

    Do you have same issues with other homebrews?

    Other homebrew apps work fine. Unfortunately I don't have a retail cartridge of Cubic Ninja (seeing as how it's about the same price as Sky3DS and I'd get more bang for my buck with sky). But you're right it could be an issue related to Sky3DS. I'll keep searching/trying different methods.

    It could be sky3ds related. I have sky3ds as well. All my other hbs works. But not chmm... but chmm did work for me long time ago. I must have been playing with Ninjhax 1.1b then..

    If you use directly retail cartridge you'll surely be fine.

    Well unless I find another way to install themes without using the e-shop I might have to break down and buy the retail cartridge. Thank you for the quick replies!

    Could you use tubehax to see if it works there?

    Yeah, perhaps it is sky3ds.. But I'm like TS. I bought a sky3ds instead of Cubic ninja. It was almost the same price then. So I won't buy Cubic ninja. Chmm version 1 works sometimes. So I'll use the old one. It's ok for me. Even though I would love to have shuffling on :)

    Can't use youtube without doing a system update, which I didn't want to do in case I decide to go the CFW route later.

    I don't think this is the problem, if so sky could be detected easily.
    I have oothax on sky and it working as well.

    If you are on version 9.1 you could set reinand and use free multi patcher to enter the eshop without updating.

    Hope it works! That way we would know for sure it is a sky3ds related problem.

    It works on ironhax 9.9 as I tested.
    You don't need to try it because the reason can be sky of version 9.1- so what you should check is if it work on cubic ninja retail. Or with tubehax on 9.1

    I think the problem here is theme shuffle was introduced in 9.2 and not 9.1 so this feature might screw up. Why not just emunand it to 9.9?

    Theme shuffle is introduce in 9.3 and also, their talking about CHMM1 also which doesn't have theme shuffle support.
