    Hi, ive been trying to install custom firmware on my 2ds, it has firmware 8.1. I followed this guide... everything went ok, but wen i click on Launch rxmode in emunand the screen just goes black and stays black.

    Anyone else have this happen to them and if so is there a way to fix it? Thank you

    Your SD card should have 1 less GB than normal.

    You can also try using a nightly build (more recent version of rxTools), it usually fixes the problem with people who can't use older versions of rxTools.

    Surely easier to see if and where you've gone wrong in text format?

    Plus watching a 20 minute video? too then reference again if you mess up, text guides are updated too, videos are not

    Thanks you for your replies... I will try again after I finish work. Hopefully it's a little mistake. BTW if I get a bigger memory card so I can install homebrew and roms will I have to do the hack again? Is the hack stored on the sd card? Thanks you

    i totally agree, i really don't get the whole video guide phenomenon.
    do you have a link for that? rxtools has so many damn links for downloads its bloody confusing.

    I had the same problem with a 2DS on 6.0.0. I fixed it by updating sysnand to 9.2 and then updating emunand. After I did that it started booting 10.3 emunand properly.
