    I have tried these:

    Booting Menuhax into CTR Boot manager and then homebrew and then to CHMM - This installs the custom theme on sysNAND making me lose the menuhax and having to install it again by browserhax
    Using homebrew loader (on emunand) to enter there to CHMM and install the theme - Same as above
    Installing the CHMM cia (obviously on emunand) and installing the theme by there - Same as above

    o3ds - sysNAND 9.2
    - emuNAND 10.5
    Currently running CakesFW

    And YES, my NANDS are unlinked.

    I used good old 3ds_homemenu_extdatatool to install a custom theme on emunand. You'll need to install a *hax game on your emunand unless there's a .cia version of it.

    EDIT: oops meant to edit the old post, I'm losing it today! :wacko:

    I have the same problem. Everytime I change themes in emuNAND, sysNAND has the same theme as my emuNAND and rekt menuhax. (My NANDS are unlinked btw)

    But i can't install the theme on emunand, it only installs on sysnand and murders menuhax, but you got the same theme that you installed on both NANDS , so you'll only have to reinstall menuhax lol

    Download howling theme tool. Create your own cia of custom themes. (Upto 100). Install the CIA of custom themes on your emunand. Then just select the theme you want to use. From the home menu in emunand. That's the wee house icon with the spanner in the top left hand corner of your home menu in emunand....easy peasy....

    or you can delete menuhax on emunand (only possible with unlinked nands) menuhax stays on sysnand and install your themes with chmm and try to use coldboot method if you have cfw

    Hey dude at least you got the theme working on emuNAND, just reinstall menuhax in sysNAND and you are fine.

    Omg, People, People simple answer here! Download the Howling Theme Tool (PC Needed) and just Make a .cia containing all the themes you want. Then install it with FBI or DevMenu (FBI Recommended) while on EmuNAND using FBI.cia and boom, Click the Settings Icon > Theme Options > Choose your theme (Shuffle works too). If you want to add more themes the following is 100% necessary unless you wanna fuckup your theme management info: Delete the themes from the top right corner button in the theme options menu then delete the "theme" file from System Settings > Data Management > 3DS > Addon Content (OR Extra Content). Now just install another cia containing the themes you installed last time + any new ones you wanna add.

    If you cant install the cia on CakesFW get rxTools it is much better, There is a Tutorial in my sig.

    If your themes are being changed on both SysNAND and EmuNAND when your changing on EmuNAND its just confirming that you didnt properly Unlink. I have a unlinking tutorial in my rxTools tutorial near the bottom of the thread content. Have a look at it.

    Its much better to install themes as a CIA if you have EmuNAND there are lots of obvious benefits.

    I installed the howling thing, and i installed my cia package on emunand, the themes were showing so i could choose then, when i restarted my 3ds i tried to run menuhax and it didn't work, it killed menuhax again...
