    Delete the theme folder from your mSD/SD. Should be able to find Theme folder number of 3DSBrew. I don't know it off the top of my head

    Sorry what?
    I go into my microsd from my PC and then I go to my emunand file or do I go into 3ds folder?

    I deleted the theme folder from my sd card root and nothing changed so I would have to unintsall it......through 3dsbrew folder number? OK I will google that.

    If your NANDS are unlinked you need to figure out which is the emuNAND and which is the sysNAND.

    http://i.imgur.com/fGp2s6X.png One of these folders is for emu the other for sysNAND if unlinked otherwise you will just have one folder that sys and emuNAND share.

    Navigate to the exdata folder and delete folder 000002cd. This is Home Menu Theme. Let me know if that fixes it for you.

    You use menuhax? Or did you take the plunge and try your hand at arm9loaderhax? Arm9loaderhax is awesome by the way.

    Yeah I deleted that in sysnand and still nothing same for emunand....so I guess installing that theme made my entire menu hax unravel......

    Installing a theme will kill menuhax in sysNAND and emuNAND if linked. Just reinstall menuhax and set your custom theme as part of menuhax setup. Do not change it after you install menuhax or the process will need to be done over again. Not that it takes that long.

    Have you read the OTP guide thread. If you can follow the guide and are confident in your ability you can get your otp.bin file. once you have that I can compile for you and you can install arm9loaderhax. direct boot to emunand in about 8 seconds or hold L and boot to sysNAND with 9.0 Firmlaunch.

    Usually if you have two folders (named with a crazy long name) inside the Nintendo 3ds folder on your mSD root you are more than likely unlinked.

    Yeah I did the entire reinand setup guide step by step and got through the unlinking part fine but this is weird.....CHMM2 makes menu hax uninstall.....XD so it kills itself?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Thank you.......so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I re-used browser hax and it took me straight to ctf boot......it is all safe....my games...my mhx file is safe!!!!!thanks.
    Will give that arm9loader a try later.
    This place doesnt have a rep system right? like that "iso" place?
    New problem.....I need a theme folder now to install menu hax......XD

    I have only installed custom theme to emunand using CHMM2 and if unlinked it should not affect menuhax which is attached to sysNAND. To unlink nands I always boot the 3DS and format sysNAND with the microSD removed. After completing the inital setup and you get to the home menu put the mSD back in and it will create some files. Then reinstall menuhax and you should definitely be unlinked from emuNAND. Remember do not install a custom them to sysNAND after menuhax install or it will overwrite menuhax and should only boot to sysNAND.


    When you go into the theme settings if you deleted it a new folder will be created by the 3DS. Menuhax usually wants you to install a standard them first to create that folder before you install menuhax through homebrew launcher.

    Thanks man.
    This is going to be a long road to understanding things I suppose......that arm9loader looks crazy.
    So now it makes sense why the guides tell me to use the theme in the sysnand right away for the first time to get my folder.

    Crazy awesome. It is a little nerve wracking if you do not have a hard mod (I do not). But if you follow the guide to a T you will be rewarded with a blazing fast booting CFW and menuhax will no longer be required. Custom theme away. Take your time deciding but if you do and you get your console specific otp.bin file I can compile it for you. The .3dsx file that is compiled using your otp file is installed through homebrew launcher directly and CFW will run at boot vice needing menuhax and ctrboot or ctrmanager to boot what is configured in your ini file.

    I have been glued to the scene since the earlier released downgrader allowed me to take a Hyrule Edition N3DS on 9.9 and turn it into a 9.2 arm9loaderhax monster. Don't get me wrong menuhax works just fine and really your only saving 20 ish seconds each boot using arm9loaderhax, but there are some cool concepts out there being tossed around that should definitely make arm9loaderhax even more appealing.
