    Okay so I downloaded Menuhax from smea's twitter and it is supposed to start up on boot, right?
    I deleted the themehax_installer folder since it told me to, and I extracted the file to the root of my SD card, but when I start my 3DS nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong?

    Do u install the new Menuhax? If u do this, in a config option change the boot config to type 1, in this way the HBL loads when u power on the 3DS and don't press any button :P (i made this cuz u dunno how load the new Menuhax)

    It defaults to holding L while booting.

    How do I get to the config options though...
    also holding L doesn't work.
    oh wait actually it might be cause I don't have a boot.3dsx or whatever that file is in the root. Is there a new one for 2.5? Sorry if these questions are noobish, haha

    if u can load the HBL for another hax, enter in the Menuhax managar and in the 3rd option, select the Type 1 and touch te botton screen, save config and reset the console

    oh, well I'm not really able to since I don't have any other exploits...

    Okay so I followed this thread: http://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-install-2-5-on-themehax-manually.400784/
    Not sure if it's outdated but I did anyway. my SD card looks the same and I have the menuhax_manager folder in the 3ds folder. I hold L on startup and nothing happens. Am I not able to start it without another hax? Browserhax was way simpler than this...

    I think you actually have to install it via another *hax first.

    Well shit.
    Might as well wait for a replacement for browserhax if one ever gets found. -_-

    a place I'll escape, first chance I get
    Yep, that's what happened to me. Now I'm torn between waiting some more or updating to 10.2 and hoping someone finds another way to get into browserhax.
