    well the video you posted is for 2.6 and outdated thets why its different you can follow it if you want but when done you will want to update your rxtools version so you can autoboot cfw so why not kill two birds with one stone and just use the newer guide

    I was going to follow the guide on the thread but when i downloaded that rxTools given there i saw this "rxTools nightly build buggy and incomplete"
    so i thought its not that good , is it stable ?
    just a stupid question : what do you mean by "you can autoboot cfw" ? rx mode boots automatically when i turn my 3ds on ?
    and thanks alot you really helped me out ^^

    i use the 9-28 build from this link RxTools Nightlies by @WhoAmI? it's the most stable build i have used

    yes that's exactly what i mean by autoboot here is a video of it https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=LcAMVMpXjzo
    also the only stupid question is an unasked question

    go back to rx tools. Zip go to properties and then go to unblock then unzip it and try again

    first remove that link it violates gbatemp rules
    and it may or may not work (differint versions of rxtools use different firmware.bin files) but one you make yourself will work for sure

    the only part of the process that is dangerous at all is updating sysnand and even that is safe if you read first and follow the instructions carefully
