    I used to test booting RxMode to see if my 2ds is compatible; it is. But I did something wrong now, and I need some help. I'm running SysNand 8.1.0 and EmuNand 10.2.0 on a 2ds ( of course...) And recently, upon using my browser for the entry point for RxTools menu. It used to work. I do have a Slot0x25Key.bin file. And It simply won't boot into RxMode, Fails to install the needed files upon opening. ERR -2. ( RxTools 2.6 ) The files are placed properly. But what is the issue here? I'm needing this to work so I may boot into DevMode to upgrade my 2ds to 9.0.0. Someone help me out. Please? @BobDoleOwndU Was kind enough to help out to their abilities; they don't know what causes the error. Neither do I... So, someone who knows what causes these errors...?

    I know what part of the error is and is normal that the installation of the files fails in rxTools 2.6, you see when the feature was implemented, it wasn't done properly so the installation fails and it tries to install it every single time you run rxTools 2.6, this was fixed in later releases of 3.0 beta, so you need to update the firmware.bin to a newest one.

    But I don't know why can't you boot rxMode, try upgrading firmware.bin and try again.

    If it requires to run Python, what's another option to get the firmware.bin? I can't use Python. Rxtools also doesn't have a higher version. What should I do?

    Your information in the matter is highly outdated, Roxas abandoned the project after 2.6 and left the project into the pasta team, have you heard of the nightly builds? There is no official 3.0 release, but they are higher pre-releases than 2.6 and the SD data installatiom issue was fixed there.

    Yes, it requires python 2.7, you don't need to know how to use just have it installed and run firmware.py

    I provided the firmware.bin file and can verify it was from the latest nightly 3.0 beta release and is not the source of the error.

    But 2.6 doesn't have Dev Mode anyways, then he can try using 2.5.2 to update sysnand to 9.2 using devmode, no need to boot rxMode.

    I've tried all versions between 2.0 to 2.7 all provide errors at some point. Can't. Just install this update in gateway mode...?
    -_-

    Try using PastaCFW, it has been proven to work.

    No, if you use Gateway or rxMode you'll brick the 3DS because of firmlaunch.

    PastaCFW launches automatically in sysnand, you just have to turn off firmlauch, once PastaCFW is setted up:

    "Start your 3DS, launch Ninjhax, launch PastaCFW (While holding the L button), go to the options menu, press A, enable "Disable FirmLaunch" and save"
