    Ok, i have a long story but will not bore you with all the fine details, will try and cut to the chase

    I have a N3DS on FW 9.0 running reinand, i have it all configured to autoboot without the need to press any buttons etc...

    So my question... Could i use a .cia of cubic ninja within my emunand to launch the homebrew channel ?

    For reasons i don't want to explain again i am unable to get it working other ways due to the nature of my current setup

    Thank you in advance

    Not true hex edit any payload to boot a different .3dsx. I changed thememenu to boot a qoot.3dsx and still have the boot.3dsx. You can edit most of them. So you can auto boot cfw using modified boot.3dsx (qoot) then in emunand boot cubic into hbl with the standard boot.3dsx. Sounds confusing but just download hex editor and scan for boot.3dsx in the payload and just edit it.

    Thank you to all who replied...

    I just find it all so complicated tbh

    Installing reinand was straight forward, then i installed browserhax...themehax (cant remember what order i installed them), then i added the cold boot thing which brought me to the splash screen with option to hit start.... but then i went a step further and added some edited files a member here posted which makes it that now it boots directly into emunand which is what i wanted.... however as a by product when i try webhax that just autoboots the console into emunand again lol, same with other exploits. i am unable to enter reinand sysnand version because of the changes i made either.... i can get into normal sysnand by holding a button when powering on

    Hope i explained all that well enough.... so as u see, its not that straight forward for me now lol, its of my own making but it would of course be nice to have homebrew channel back and maybe reinand sysnand

    But perhaps i will never have them now because i am not clever enough to work it out

    I wanted direct boot to emunand and thats what i got..... but nothing else lol

    What's your system and version? If it's the same as mine I'll upload something for you.

    ^ This.
    Personally I would recommend setting up themehax with the boot manager: http://gbatemp.net/threads/ctrbootmanager-3ds-boot-manager-loader-homemenuhax.398383/
    That way you can choose whether to load rxTools or HBL when you power on the console, and if you're in rxTools and you want to switch to HBL simply enter and exit system settings to be returned to the boot manager. Also when you reboot the console from HBL you'll be returned to the boot manager as well.
    I've used the boot manager and it works pretty great. All it's missing is an option to boot home menu normally, but I figure that might not be possible, and it's always possible to hold L to skip themehax and boot normally anyway.

    Hi mate, i do not know how to use this, but i do have it installed in my emunand

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Hi there, this looks great also, although very complex tbh.

    I do not have rxtools installed on my system, so that would be another thing to add to the system, i read about some problems with N3DS but this may be on older builds

    I must give this a proper read

    As i said earlier, my biggest concern is all the changes i detailed above already, like booting to emunand on reinand directly and then changing to custom files to remove the splash screen, i remember i had to rename some files but cannot remember which ones

    here this is a straight forward setup. backup your original files before over writing. unzip this and place on your sd over writing old one. this will boot toot.3dsx now. so rename your auto boot.3dsx to toot.3dsx and download smeas original boot.3dsx and place that on sd card. now install cubic on emunand and it will boot in hbl. this will also boot hbl in any other hax apart from themehax.
    only work on n3ds 9.0

    To answer your question though, yes you can use a CIA of cubic ninja to load HBL. You will still need the boot manager I linked above, otherwise it will just try to boot ReiNAND again. By the time you install the boot manager, a CIA of cubic ninja will be redundant because you will already be able to load HBL through the boot manager when you first power up the console.

    I would recommend switching to rxTools 3.0 though. It's a lot more mature than ReiNAND.

    Honestly it's simple to use and you can use it with ReiNAND if you want, just have to make a copy of the "Homebrew Menu" entry in the config and change it to point to the ReiNAND .3dsx file. Then change the "default" line or move the ReiNAND entry to the top so it will autoboot the correct entry.

    So in other words, name your HBL boot.3dsx as boot_hb.3dsx, put the boot manager boot.3dsx on the root, name the ReiNAND .3dsx file boot_reinand.3dsx and put it on root, and use this config file:
    Code:
    // Boot menu configuration
    boot_config =
    {
        // Default timeout in seconds
        // If timeout = -1, disable autoboot
        timeout = 3;
    
        // if timeout = 0 (autoboot),
        // hold this key to enter the menu
        // keycode list : https://goo.gl/4XLDIL
        recovery = 2; // SELECT
    
        // Default boot entry
        default = 0;
    
        // Boot menu entries (16 max)
        entries =
        (
            {
                title  = "ReiNAND";
                path = "/boot_reinand.3dsx";
            },
            {
                title  = "Homebrew Menu";
                path = "/boot_hb.3dsx";
            }
        );
    };

    It won't. Themehax now only loads the modified file I gave. All the other hax will load standard boot.3dsx. This way is simple as he wanted it to be straight forward.

    Thanks @Columbo2811 this certainly looks the way to go

    What will happen when i complete all these instructions you have provided when i boot ? will it goto a menu or to the reinand splash screen or direct to emunand as before but with an option somehow to load homebrew channel etc.. ?

    Themehax will go straight to reinand it's booting the same file but with a different name. Rename your boot.3dsx to toot.3dsx that's it.

    It's also much more complicated to set up than ReiNAND (last I checked, the firmware file had to be named weirdly (the 64-bit titleID with .old.bin or something? I couldn't get it to boot without it being named that way; I tried like a week ago). But at any rate, if you need more functionality, @peteruk, just use the boot menu like others and I have suggested. There's no need to rename files manually once you have it set up.
