    My system is set up with A9LH running an updated 10.7 sysnand.
    To access homebrew, I've installed this CIA https://github.com/yellows8/hblauncher_loader/releases

    But its bootrate is pretty poor at about 50%. It often just hangs at one of the flashing colors.

    Before switching to A9LH, I was running menuhax booting into bootctr (or ctrboot, not sure) and from there I could select the homebrew launcher. That way, boot rate was pretty much 100%. Also, there were no flashing colors at all.

    Is there anything I can do to improve the homebrew boot rate under my A9LH setup?

    Really awkward.

    My n3DS is running A9LH + 10.7 Sysnand and I've got a 100% boot rate to HBL with the CIA.

    All will be resolved when Gateway releases A9LH support (at least for A9LH users)

    Does it also say hax 2.7 gamma when booting?

    I've never really looked into anything gateway-related at all. Is Gateway also just a CFW (like aureinand) that can run on any system without additional hardware, or is it all still tied to their own hardware flash cards?

    It's tied to their cards. I don't know why he even brought up GW since it has nothing to do with what's going on here.

    Unfortunately Gateway is still tied to their red cart. They recently (like late last night) updated their site claiming A9LH support and something related to 10.3 FW (downgrader possibly). Will be a welcome addition for any Gateway owners when it is finally releases.

    Also have a 100% boot rate.
    Are you using a payload designed for your firmware or did you rename an old payload.
    Also, did you hexedit the homebrew launcher payload to boot (directly) to your homebrew's boot.3dx, not the ctrbootmanager one?

    The 10.3 "thing" is the ntrcardhax which gives arm9 on 10.3 (probably to setup a9lh).

    Wait 5-10 seconds before booting. Then you'll see a significant impact on the boot rate!

    It downloaded the payload itself and saved it to SD. When booting, it says "hax 2.7 gamma" on the top screen. I did not modify it in any way.It boots directly to boot.3dsx, which is the gridlauncher. In my new A9LH setup, there is no longer a ctrboot

    Where can I find those old payloads? Smealums site seems to only have the most recent one.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to make a difference.

    That's a shame. It does all the difference for me. Hax 2.6 cia.
