    I've manage to change my theme in Emunand using CHMM2.CIA, but when I try doing so using CHMM2.CIA in sysnand, after performing a force restart menuhax breaks and sysnand auto. boots. I always end up having to reinstall menuhax.

    Massive FACEPALM*, how to people not know this? Replacing themes in sysnand overwrites MENUHAX!

    That's normal, that's the point, using menuhax prevents you from changing themes. However, menuhax tool has an option to install a single theme so it won't break. Someone made a homebrew app that uses this, but with the app, you can have multiple themes. It's called Tinker.

    No, I've had a sysnand theme separate from my emunand theme before I installed *Hax 2.6.

    Read what Games&Stuff said. You'd have to setup the theme you want using Menuhax or Tinker, not CHMM.

    It wouldn't matter if my nands were linked/unlinked? I still would have to use Tinker to change the theme in Sysnand?

    If they were unlinked, this would likely not be happening.

    If changing in EmuNAND breaks SysNAND...
    Then a correct change in EmuNAND should stay a correct change in SysNAND.
    (Also, theme data is stored on SD, so there's that)

    It sounds like your Emunand and Sysnand is linked.

    Themehax/Homemenuhax installs into your sysnand theme,
    and if your emunand and sysnand is linked, changing your theme breaks themehax/menuhax.

    HENCE,
    go backup your sysnand (and label it clearly),
    proceed to unlink your nands,
    and install themehax one more time on sysnand.

    So what's the easiest way to unlink my nands? I can't access the go-gateway-3ds website to format since my emunand is on 10.5. My browser wants me to update.

    You can update EmuNAND to 10.6 just fine.

    You can unlink SysNAND by removing the SD card and performing a format from System Settings.
    You can unlink EmuNAND by installing and running TinyFormat (which does a more basic format than System Settings and can be run from EmuNAND without disrupting anything).

    Whichever one you unlink, will be formatted and reset to defaults.

    So all I have to do is boot into sysnand without my SD card, perform a format from system settings and then everything should be set?

    Yes, that would unlink the NANDs.
    In that case, you would redo initial setup of your SysNAND (making sure not to allow it to update) and set up your themehax.
    EmuNAND would remain the same and you can then do whatever you want over there.
