    Hello,
    I download the latest version of MenuHax, and in the folder of the installer, there is an option to install custom theme with the menuHax Manager.
    So, I try it, it load the Body_LZ.bin succesfully, same thing for the BGM.BCSTM, but there is wright that there is an issue when wrighting the ThemeManage.bin to Exdata, ans the install fail.
    As anyone have this issue, too?

    For custom-theme installation, the theme-data must be located at SD "/3ds/menuhax_manager/body_LZ.bin". If used, the BGM must be located at SD "/3ds/menuhax_manager/bgm.bcstm".

    Have you tried changing your selected theme to another basic color one? Also try with another custom theme files.

    Just go to the theme settings 3ds-newbie-guide-themes.png after you installed menuhax 2.0 and it will create the theme files in your SD, reboot to menuhax again and apply the custom theme

    I tested the Shuffle and static theme in chmm2 and this uninstalls the menuhax
    the only way is to put the body_LZ.bin and bgm.bcstm (if you have one) in menuhax folder to installs by menuhax manager

    you have to put the body_LZ.bin and bgm.bcstm files of the theme you choose in /3ds/menuhax_manager and install by menuhax installer

    I put a body_LZ.bin and bgm.bcstm in my menuhax_manager folder. When I hit "Install custom theme" it says it installs successfully, but I go to my home menu and don't see any theme. What gives?

    Well everyone, all installs seem to be successful for me, including the custom theme. Holding L does nothing, though. Furthermore, if I set the button config, the existence of that file stops the menu from ever loading. I am using an emuNAND, on 9.5. Anyone know how I can fix this?

    Choose just ONE theme of you want like "Zelda- The lost woods" for exemple, open his folder and you will see a preview.png, body_LZ.bin, bgm.bcstm etc, copy body_LZ.bin and bgm.bcstm to sd:/3ds/homehax_manager and open homehax manager to install

    did you try to delete all settings in the 3rd option of menuhax manager before install?

    can you upload a print in the "successfully screen"?
