    So I using ReiNand currently on my 3DS with ThemeHack (to directly boot it)

    Is it still up2Date as Custom Firmware or should I get a different one? It seems 11.0.X works like a charm there, so I woundering, if I may should swap the CFW or stay at ReiNand.

    Kind of.

    I would upgrade to Luma3DS, though.

    The author of that cfw seems to be moving on to other things (long story).
    The fork of it, luma3ds, is more up-to-date. I recommend it.

    Use luma3ds.
    Reinand seems kind of abandoned

    That's if you want to lose access to any of the other tools. Which some people don't care for, but my guide makes the assumption people would prefer them, and the bootmanager attempts on it's own to also improve bootrates.

    But whatever.

    what other tools?
    the homebrew launcher?
    In my opinion, a newcomer/hacking noob would be better suited without it, or rather just launching homebrew with the homebrew launcher loader.
    Buyt that's just my opinion :P

    yes, using the boot.3dsx in the "menuhax" folder for Luma3DS is a poor idea imo. you can't use the homebrew launcher at all. I would suggest boot manager (CTRBootManager etc) in any case.
    path changer is only necessary for arm9loaderhax...

    Pathchanger is only for A9LH users. Those who use MenuHax don't have that issue. I run Smash and other big-ram mode games just fine on my "menuhax test" 3ds just fine.

    whoops sorry, my mistake! :wacko:

    Yeah, so I guess if OP wants easy access to homebrew launcher, use the boot manager!
    If you're not that interested, go with the boot.3dsx

    Its up to you. Reinand is my preferred cfw for menuhax for its fast boot rate and simplistic design, but luma does have a lot more support

    Well I got Luma working thanks.

    What the hell is path changer? I never heard of it, there any games that make Problems?

    Latest stable version of ReiNAND is from May 17th and latest stable of Luma is May 27th. I wouldn't call that a lack of support.
    Comparing the commit has no sense either because of the difference of features and team size.

    So no, ReiNAND is not dead. It's a good alternative to Luma especially if you don't need all Luma's features.

    better o3ds support, a few more patches, and n3ds overclock support. Personally, if you are on n3ds, reinand is the best in my eyes

    Think he meant that Luma3DS does that, while ReiNand doesn't. ReiNand has never gone out of it's way to do reboot patches and stuff. I am guessing what he meant by "a few more patches."

    Then why say Reinand is best on N3ds? That's where my confusion comes in.
