    I was trying to find a good theme to have as my background and after installing this Zelda theme over a Pokemon one the same song from the last theme plays for about a second before it freezes and I'm forced to restart. Can someone help me fix this? What do I do?

    I don't have themehax installed on emuNAND, only sysNAND.

    errrr... i did this the other day with my girlfriends emuNAND. i believe i fixed it by going in the nintendo3ds folder on the SD and deleting a certain file for the theme management data.

    There was a button combination similar to the recovery mode one to delete homenudata that worked on emunand. Since you probably have corrupted theme data you should try it out while booting your emunand. It was something like this.
    L+R+dpad down+ x or L+R+dpad up+ x

    That's the manual way of doing it. Be carful not to delete sysnand exdata and only delete emunand exdata. Try my method first. It should be easier.

    its in extdata and depending on JP/US/EU it should be
    JP 000002cc US 000002cd EU 000002ce Home Menu theme

    https://3dbrew.org/wiki/Extdata

    When i did it i just deleted that and then started it up. after rebooting it was alright again and in its default theme.

    but yeah, make sure your working with emuNAND

    Okay. EmuNAND would obviously be the one with more data than sysNAND correct?

    I tried both of those but nothing happened.

    If you formatted your sysNAND to unlink them and have installed things to your emuNAND then yeah.
    also check your looking at the kb/mb/gb cause that nearly tripped me up (i think one was around 190kb and the other 50mb so i nearly did a bad).

    Ahh I'm sure it was one of those. Sorry that I don't remember which one exactly. The other method jonnytron mentioned should still work.

    Yes I did unlink them, and I'm in the exadata folder with a bunch of different files. Which ones do I delete?

    extdata>000000>
    and then delete JP 000002cc, US 000002cd or EU 000002ce (Home Menu theme data)

    *delete one of these folders depending on your region.
    when you reboot you'll have the default theme and will have to go to change it to create theme management data again.

    Oh thank god it worked. Thanks for your help everyone. I think for now on I'm going to install menuhax and stick with using that to install custom themes, because CHMM isn't very good.

    Id say CHMM works well, but can cause problems if your installing over another custom theme (rather than default theme etc)

    Im glad this worked for you too though
