    Yup. You can also follow Hyura's link if you want to have a custom theme along with it.

    I have 3 moments... 1) Right after launching FBI. 2)Before blue screen 3) On blue screen
    Make sure you run ftBrony first and spam A after ejecting cartridge.

    Well, since menuhax is not a problem anymore, let me ask something else:

    - What is exact use of the eject trick?
    Is it for the FBI to actually run....

    ...or is it for the FBI to actually be able to install a legit cia?

    Cause i got the FBI running first time with menuhax. Yet it wasnt able to install my legit cia. It gave me

    "Summary wrong argument 0 x 8
    description invalid command 0 x 2f"


    I rebooted and tried again, this time with the eject trick. But this time i wasnt able to even run the FBI, froze at "map completed" or something. Tried several times and nothing

    So.... is it my "legit cia" or is this just the way this FBI app work?

    The version is unstable. Retry.
    Also, here is my solution:
    1)Launch Homebrew Launcher with Menuhax.
    2)Launch ftBrony and quit with B.
    3)Launch FBI and before or on blue screen quickly eject your cartridge and press A.
    (Or just eject.)
    Retry and see which ones work better.

    An advice to everyone: not saying you should stop doing this, but downgrading would benefit you a lot. And it's easier to install cia files on rxtools because the fbi app there is almost bug free.

    Also, more cia games!

    That's strange. You could get someone who successfully downgraded their N3DS to help you too. :)

    Considering it's the exact same file... yeah... it is just as buggy ;p
    Curious as to what did sweis12 do to brick self though. O.o

    He probably got frozen menu after CIA finished installing... or it froze right when CIA was installing...

    When I know what I lose when I do downgrade and install rxTools, then I'll decide. xD

    PS: I'm talking about things like over 160 badges (all based on free spins) of Badge Arcade, the issues that I have achieved in promotions and things like that, things Mii Plaza StreetPass, Mii from the Mii Maker, copies of saved game data that I deleted, digital games and applications and a long etc.

    PD2: Yes, it may sound heavy, but after what has taken me to get all that, and to lose it in a moment. xD

    I prefer to remain on 10.3. I bought my N3DS just 6 months ago and I can't afford another one because I need the money to update my PC.

    If I still had my 2DS I would have downgraded - but using a more stable program. Well, if KTM is released someday :P.

    From what I heard, sysUpdater is just as stable as KTM but KTM is more noob-friendly, that's all.
    Let's not start a war about what method is better though.
