    Hey, I tried to go thru the guide for slowhax/safehax on 2 devices (eur n3dsxl 11.0, us n3ds 11.0) and I get a black screen when running safehax (after slowhax successfully completed).

    Is it a known issue?

    Safehax is buggy so try again, I guess. Where is the guide for safehax? I didn't think it was updated yet.

    Make sure you grab the current version of waithax linked by the guide. It's updated the link since initially being added to the guide.

    I started the guide a couple hours ago, i believe it was already updated.

    Tried 5 times already :(

    Download the latest fork of waithax again and keep trying.

    Fasthax will be out in a day or so anyway.

    Safehax is a bit unstable, but it works. It'll get better, this implementation was made in like a day. A more polished release will probably be more stable. The problem is actually that slowhax takes forever. Fasthax releasing will just mean retrying a process that takes less than a minute. Slowhax on the other hand takes an hour, so when Safehax crashes, you need to wait another hour, as the 3DS Crash Recovery is terrible.

    So fasthax will help a lot.

    Got it, so i guess i will just keep trying until it works or fasthax is released :)

    What really sucks is that i'm on new 3ds but slowhacks still thinks that i'm on old3ds 9 out of 10 times (so takes more than an hour rather than 20 minutes).

    You don't need a dsiware to use waithax. That was if you wanted to downgrade but now with safehax you can downgrade with the help of waithax. Follow:
