    I've been trying to install Devmenu, but when I try to use run.bat, it says it failed to connect? Any ideas on what is going on?

    As far as i can see you just have to keep trying, it seems very sensitive and it took about 3 weeks of trying until i got it to install. :mellow:
    I don't know if it helped, but I always did a reset of cookies and history in sysnand before i tried.

    That video seems to be the exact steps i followed, so no problems there.
    Are you able to open the web browser when inside cfw? I couldn't, because the cfw just crashed. it might be easier when you "establish" a connection vi the browser, but I don't know.
    You can try my method: spamming run.bat to open like 15 of them, eventually one of them connected for me. :blink:

    You've gotta keep trying. I tried changing routers and computers, to no avail, one day it just worked. No idea what caused it to work, maybe someone else can tell you more, but thats what happend to me.
    It just seems ctrclient is a little buggy, sometimes it works on the first try, sometimes it won't.
    For me it actually connected fine the first time i used it, but it somehow installed "Pokemon Alpha sapphire demo" instead of devmenu. No idea how that is possible though... :wacko:

    As long as you've entered emunand holding L and got the correct ip, you should be doing it the right way.
    *Edit* However, you could also check your network security and/or disable firewalls temporarily.

    You mean holding L when going into the DS profile?

    Yeah, holding L is needed for the installation of devmenu, it opens some kind of ctrclient that enables remote install. After installation L is not needed anymore.

    Devmenu installs .cia to emunand, once you have devmenu you can install any (4.5 and some 7.0 games) .cia.

    Is this the only way to install DevMenu without a flashcard?

    Possibly, as ctrclient is very picky with the connection. Do you have a mobile phone with internet sharing avalible?
    Another thing, do you have the right wifi connected in emunand? To change emunand settings you cannot boot with L held in!

    Does it say internet in the top on the 3ds? If not, enter emunand without holding L and change the settings in there as usual.
