    I've been browsing around the internet for a bit, trying to install my .3ds games as CIA games. I need to have xorpads, however, and every source I go to is either needlessly complicated and hard to understand, or for an older version of the firmware.

    Let's go over what my system is and what I've done so far.

    My system is an n3DS on 9.2.0-20U. I've set up my emunand completely with PastaCFW and rxTools. I have the .3ds files I want to convert to CIAs, and I've created an ncchinfo.bin file with the Simple CIA Converter. At this point, I've put the rxTools .3dsx file in my 3ds folder to be able to run it from the Homebrew Menu, and I've put the bin file in the root directory of my filestructure. Here's a quick overview of what my root directory looks like.

    So what do I do now? Launching rxTools from the Homebrew Menu in sysnand takes me to my emunand. I haven't tried launching rxTools in emunand, which I'm going to try now, but what should I be expecting to happen? Am I doing something wrong?

    Found it out. You have to hold L while booting rxTools to open the menu. I tried this before and it didn't work for some reason, but it did now.

    It's nice and dandy, but I wish people weren't so vague with this information; the only reason I found it is because of a post in the rxTools thread literally an hour ago.

    You can also use decrypt9 for xorpad generation, I find it more convenient as rxtools often shows black bottom screen for me and also you can unmount sd in decrypt9 directly without having to switch off the device.

    I checked it out for future reference, and there's multiple versions I can choose from, including web and bootstrap. Which do I choose?

    What?
    Use the 3dsx version for homebrew launcher just like any other homebrew app.
