I recently bought a used 3ds with firmware 8.1.0-4U and I was wanting to install CFW and many other utilities on it. However, My only method of accessing the homebrew menu is through OOTHax. When ever I try to enter the homebrew menu, it goes back to the 3ds main menu. OOTHax works fine on my 10.6 3ds so I am assuming it has to do with OOTHax payloads. Here are my questions. 1.) do i need to update to the newest firmware and downgrade it to 9.2? 2.) can i use a different payload with OOTHax to access the homebrew menu? 3.) Or will I need cubic ninja because many guides use that in tutorials? Sorry if this is spam, i'm new to all of this.
