    So the 2ds was on 8.1
    I did all the ninjhax stuff (it was v1.1 so menuhax didnt work since you need 9.0 -9.2
    So i did get rxtools did the unlinking and all that
    I even managed to update the 2ds to 9.2

    So i Tried to get menuhax but it did not work

    Now i have a 9.2 2ds and will try it again
    I formatted the 2ds and the SD card, i assume thats all i gotta do

    ok so everything went smooth except for this part

    1. On your SD card, look for the file which name starts with "ropbinpayload". Open it with HxD (included in the PC_Apps folder) or Notepad++. Maybe plain old Notepad will work too.
    2. Press CTRL+F and search for boot.3dsx. There will be two results.
    3. Change both to auto.3dsx and save the file.
    Problem is, there is only one result instead of two . it the second result hidden somewhere ?? i am trying to coldboot to rxtools

    the homebrew launcher starts, not rxtools
    hmm
    i did install menuhax just like the guide mentioned

    so the fact that booting the 2ds directly to something else other than the main menu means i did install menuhax correct ?

    instead of that i used the old method using
    CtrBootManager: 3ds boot manager/loader (HomeMenuHax)

    to set it up rename your hbc's boot.3dsx on your sd card root to boot_hb.3dsx
    then drag and drop the ctrboot manager's boot.3dsx and boot.cfg to the sd root

    Yes you installed it correctly. It has to do with your naming. Bear with me as I try to help as I haven't done this for a good while. So if it boots to homebrew then your boot.3dsx is to go to the homebrew menu I'm assuming?
