    Useless how? Menuhax is a theme and nothing else. The homebrew launcher isn't ever even installed.

    If you wanna delete the HB launcher and MenuHax just delete the files you've downloaded on your SD card, there's nothing else left.

    No, no, no no. You two need to update your knowledge banks. :teach:

    Menuhax is more than just themehax nowadays. It's a series of hax; themehax, shufflehax and SDiconhax. So as OP has discovered, simply changing themes doesn't remove it anymore.

    The proper way to remove menuhax is to locate and delete the following folder in extdata.

    I've only recently set up a9lh, so it was still fresh in my mind.
