    Hello.
    When a friend of mine came over helping him to set everything setup, I see his 3DS is so much faster than mine.

    My 3DS:
    4.5 sysNAND.
    11.1 rxTools emuNAND.

    His 3DS:
    9.2 sysNAND.
    11.1 rxTools emuNAND.

    Even his sysNAND boots faster, just everything.
    Not sure what he did with his NANDs though.

    I have FBI and NSMB2 directly on the 4.5 sysNAND. So I should mention that.
    Installed it myself long time ago.

    Why is my 3DS seconds slower than his while it's both old 3DS?
    Do I have to delete something?

    Thanks.

    MAYBE the version has something to do with it??? MAYBE it could be the Rxtools build or MAYBE it is your sd card. Since you have games you downloaded that means your sd has to boot them up (along with the homebrew and stuff) each time. Also I recommend switching over to Luma3ds! Switching is extremely easy!

    What can Luma3DS do that rxTools can't?
    I've never had any problems, but this is kinda interesting ^^

    It's faster, allows compatibility with out of region things, it is supported unlike RXTools which is dead and could stop working in an update very soon. Luma is also nicer and such. It also auto patches AGB_Firm and TWL_Firm (for dsiware or gba games) and more! I really do recommend it! And for the tools part, use decrypt9 it has all the tools RXTools has except not buggy better and SO MANY MORE! I think most of the community can agree on that!

    For the best experience I would also recommend Arm9loaderhax. It's a big upgrade from where you are and should only take maybe an hour? You can do everything on sysnand, your 3ds will boot much faster, you can recover from bricks and much more!

    You are aware of how to switch correct? (Download it and copy the 3ds, luma and luma3ds.dat to the root of your sd card!)

    To set up menuhax luma3ds it only takes around 5 minutes.

    I'm aware of those things ^^
    I can figure it out myself ^^

    I may have some other question, but not about Luma 3DS ^^ I don't have my 3DS with me right now anyways, but ok )) I have some other questions though, but not regarding CFW ^^
    Those questions will have either a brand new topic or not at all.
    And thanks.

    Not interested in arm9loadherhax, but ofcourse Luma3DS. Rosalina anyone?
    Anyways, the question I'm about to ask might need some reading since I just post them here.

    So here we go:
    You've probably heard of RemoteJoy PSP.
    If you haven't, it's a homebrew tool used to record the PSP screen, so the PSP screen comes up on the computer, and then you can record, with like Hypercam or something like that, so the PC processes the power.
    Is there also one for the 3DS? There is NTR CFW, but the old 3DS might not handle that since it records from 3DS itself.

    So is there something like RemoteJoy that the 3DS shows up on the PC screen?
    Thanks.

    I didn't know your SD cards were tired :P
    But that explains. A Class 2 SD Card is literally way more tired than a Class 10 ^^
    Haven't paid attention to that.
    Thanks!

    Use an up to date NATIVE_FIRM.

    To OP, also try formatting your SD to 64k cluster size.

    NTR CFW does do it, but only on n3ds

    probably SD card the more stuff on it the longer the 3ds takes to load it all

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    I think it's because of Nintendo's stability updates. 9.2 is more stable than 4.5

    It looks like the stability updates actually do something.

    Actually, technically, EmuNAND and RedNAND are not exactly the same.

    Iirc, they're two slightly different implementations of NAND redirection.
