    Is it possible to use homebrews with coldboot? Since coldboot uses it's own boot file.

    .....menuhax is an entrypoint not a homebrew software in cia or 3dsx format...
    you have to enter HBL first, then you can install menuhax to your system

    I know that, but you can't use HBL while having coldboot's boot file.

    I think the question is "if I already use menuhax to coldboot, can I still access homebrew from my emuNAND without conflicts with my coldboot ?"
    And if so, the answer is "yes, just edit your menuhax payload and replace boot.3dsx with any string the same length then rename your boot.3dsx accordingly and voilà, you can menuhax-boot with your edited string and have a homebrew access on your emuNAND using the regular boot.3dsx".

    Yup, that's it. I know that trick, but it's kinda lame to change everysingle time name and ejecting sd card to do that.

    use bootmanager.
    let menuhax payload loads btma.3dsx(bootmanager file)
    so you can leave boot.3dsx be the HBL

    Mc Donalds.
    You can use lesshax. It has a higher boot rate and you can still have your Homebrew boot file as boot.3dsx.
