    When I try to start up RxTools from Menuhax, it simply doesnt work.

    Rxtools 2.6: Emunand 10.3
    Sysnand 9.2.0 - 27E
    Menuhax version 1

    Use menuhax 2.0 with ctrbootmanager and a nightly rxTools build.

    That should fix it easily.

    Actually you only have to:

    1)Install menuhax 2.0

    2)Rename HBL's boot.3dsx to boot_hb.3dsx

    3)Drop ctrbootmanager files in the root of your SD card (boot.3dsx & boot.cfg)

    4)Replace rxTools files for a newer build.

    It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to do everything.

    Ctrbootmanager already brings an entry to autoboot a rxTools nightly build.

    I have never tried ro autoboot an official release.

    You could try creating an entry for rxTools.dat and see if it works, I think it should without any problems.

    To create/edit entries just open the config file using notepad in your PC and replece the path for rxTools.dat instead of code.bin

    Create a file named boot.cfg, put this inside:

    Code:
    // Boot menu configuration
    boot_config =
    {
        // Default timeout in secondes
        // If timeout = -1, disable autoboot
        timeout = 3;
    
        // Some devices (n3ds?) seems to have
        // some timing problems when using timeout=0 (autoboot).
        // You may increase this value to improve boot success rate.
        // Default delay (8) should be good for o3ds, 2 seems good for n3ds
        autobootfix = 8;
    
        // 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 (11 max)
        entries =
        (
            {
                title  = "rxTools";
                path = "/rxTools.dat";
                offset = "0x12000";
            },
            {
                title  = "HomeBrewMenu";
                path = "/boot_hb.3dsx";
            }
        );
    };

    Sorry to hijack the topic. I'm positively stumped. I managed to downgrade my N3DS and create an emuNAND, but I just can't get RxTools to boot. I always get a red lower screen and a black upper screen, and I have to hard-reset. I'm pretty sure I'm using the correct firmware bins, correctly named. Any idea of what may be happening?

    Have you tried reinstalling everything?
    What sysnand version do you have?
    What RxTools version do you got?

    I have an O3DS XL on 4.5 and want to Autoboot GW. Is it the same process to do this.

    You need to update to 9.0 - 9.2 to autoboot, this is because Menuhax is installed in the theme data and the hack boots as this data is read and themes were introduced in the 9.0 update.

    I tried it and the ctrbootmanager works. But when I start RxTools, it doesnt work. Ctrbootmanager crashed (I think it couldnt load rxtools.dat but Im not sure)

    EDIT:
    Do you know how I update to rxtools 3.0 nightly build?

    Get into you emunand and change the theme - should fix it - also use rxTools nightly if possible.

    it does work - just copy the tutorials that are on here to the letter

    it's because you got menuhax autoboot in your emunand, this happens when creating emunand with menuhax installed

    break it by changing menuhax to boot with a button pressed, ie not type 2, then once booted in emunand change the theme

    then boot normal sysnand and unlink nands, see any tutorial

    once nands are unlinked you can reinstall menuhax in sysnand to autoboot, type 2
