    O3DS/2DS v11.2.0-35U with soundhax as entrypoint: https://mega.nz/#!a9EjiLha!KxGuk2QaEVYyDrXBaNjjQZ6EgIFlFyKJTDoD57kcCLw
    N3DS v11.2.0-35U with soundax as entrypoint: https://mega.nz/#!b0kxURKB!GdMPmiDVC4Veg-ieyL9BZq5DDJAizSno89QjDjNUIhI

    If you want a video guide, here's one, made by KanterZ:

    If you have any error during the process, read this post entirely (the answer might be there). If the answer's not here, just ask.

    Here are the instructions:

    Requirements: uTorrent or Deluge.

    WARNING: If you have a 3DS from a region other than USA, read the steps after the "Instructions" section first. IF YOU HAVE N3DS, DO NOT PUT YOUR CONSOLE IN SLEEP MODE WHILE IN 2.1 OR UPDATE, you'll brick in both cases. IF YOU HAVE A 2DS, DO NOT FORMAT OR YOU'LL SOFTBRICK.

    Instructions



    For all those of you getting something similar to this:
    "arm11.bin loading.
    Shows a black bottom screen for less then a second.
    Glitched bottom screen.
    Both black screens.
    Turn off 2ds.
    Turn on + start.
    Normal startup."
    Copy the contents of this zip to the root of your microSD, excluding the arm9loaderhax.bin and try again.



    If you want to restore H&S, go to FBI, Titles, select FBI, Delete Title & Tickets and attempt a system update.



    If you have a 3DS from other region than U, follow these steps.
    1. Go to http://soundhax.com/ and select the right config for region and device.
    2. Instead of going to "Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000" and deleting the "0000008f" folder, delete "00000098" if yours is EUR, "00000082" if yours is JPN and "000000A9" if yours is KOR.

    Once I try to open soundhax, the music app crashes and forces my 2DS to restart. (11.2)

    Thanks Ned. He's the one who made this possible. I only packed it and put instructions

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

    Try again. Might take a few tries. It's not common, but normal.

    Hey, take some credit, too. I meant the people are greatful for the many works of many devs, but most people ALWAYS thank the person who turned the technical into laymans.

    Nedwill taught you how to fish. You showed them how to fish with barrels and guns.
