    Are you sure you're using the 11.2 payloads for ocarina and pressing "A" once the game starts to boot into homebrew launcher?

    thank you for your answer, that was the problem (payloads were fine), i just inject the exploit in 1 slot, to avoid pressing any button but A to open the game file, if anyone has this issue, dont even try to use the D-PAD, OOTHAX fails very easily in 11.1 and 11.2

    Same thing happening to me, whenever I enter the game with the exploited save file. I play the ocarina or press A right after. Game freezez then "An error has occurred, forcing the software to close. The system will now restart."

    This happens both on my New3ds xl and Old 3ds xl

    Please help as I am in the middle of downgrading my Old 3ds XL as well :P

    Thanks guys ya'll the best

    I also had this problem, but it was basically for two reasons:

    • You must install OoTHAX payloads for the correct version of the current version installed on your 3ds. Note carefully that you are marked the correct version for "New" instead of the "OLD" version that is selected by default.

    • You Need to Clear Home Menu's by the navigating to the following folder on your SD card: / Nintendo 3DS / (32 Character ID) / (32 Character ID) / extdata / 00000000 /
    EUR Region: Delete 00000098
    JPN Region: Delete 00000082
    USA Region: Delete 0000008f
    KOR Region: Delete 000000A9
    TWN Region: Delete 000000B1

    This should be done every time you perform an action that makes use of SD, especially in firmware downgrade operations or running the homebrew launcher.

    Just gotta make sure everything matches your 3ds specs in the save. Different models and firmwares need different payloads, all we can tell you is make absolute certain that its the correct payload, and that boot.3dsx is at the root of the SD, and isn't corrupted


    Those are the only reasons it would crash

    Thanks, I've even put the payload manually and downloaded it from the homebrew website, boot.3dsx is in the root and I'm pretty sure it isn't corrupted because I launch HBomebrew from the .cia, so I don't know what could it be, I even redownloaded the starter.zip 3 times!

    oot3dhax won't launch on a9lh consoles. You only use the a9lh console to install the hax to launch on a stock console.

    You can just use steelhax still, because system reports 11.2 even after nfirm downgrade. That's how i did anyway when using system transfer from a cfw 3ds.
