    Hey guys,

    I have an o3ds (9.7) that will run Super Pokemon Mystery Dungeon with themehax region free. I recently applied themehax to my o3ds XL (9.5) so I can play my american games on my bigger system. Only problem is, whilst some games work fine, Super Pokemon Mystery Dungeon just throws a black screen at me.

    Is this because it needs a later firmware to run? Is there any safe way to update the firmware whilst also keeping themehax so I can play more games? Or is it nothing to do with FW.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm not sure if it needs a later firmware, but if it does, launching it through HANS and enabling the firmware spoof might work?

    when I launch Hans it just hangs on a yellow bottom screen, white top screen. I dont really know what HANS is though, I just clicked it and that happened.

    its becus the game only works with a updated 3DS you need to update to play it

    Obviously updating is a big no no with a hacked 3ds, So is there any way to safely update the firmware to a version where the game will work whilst also keeping a hacked 3ds?

    That would only be possible under 9.3, so no.
