    Right now I'm using Cakes and it only boots like 50% of the time. I've changed boot.cfg settingsfor the boot manager (forgot the name) several times before but I'm not seeing any improvement. Rxtools seems to boot 100% on my O3DSes. So is it stable on N3DS? Because I've heard the releases are "dirty".

    Maybe, I dunno for sure but with this boot manager I manage to get 80% boot rate with RxTools and 85% with CakesFW booting with Cakes.dat
    Though I have ReiNand, I didn't boot it enough times with ReiNand.dat to make a statistic, but it worked 9 of 14 times

    I'll try that then. I remember Rxtools on N3DS when we only had 9.5 emunand seemed to have trouble booting with the 3dsx.

    When I was booting RxTools with .3dsx files, I usually got about a poor 30% boot rate, was terrible xD

    Well, I almost never turn off my N3DS, so... I didn't boot like 300 times to make a statistic 100% right but in the end you should get almost the same as ctrbootmanager boot rate

    Arm9loaderhax gives you 100% boot rate, but it's a bit risky.

    So just the homebrew launcher then? Like choosing from the main list?
