    I'm looking into creating an otherapp payload launcher for use with the Luma chainloader, as the title suggests. If this isn't possible, please let me know. I've been looking through the source of Decrypt9, Luma, and ninjhax and can't find how it launches the payload from the SD. Any help is appreciated.

    Gambia, The
    You messed up.
    You can't chainload non-a9lh homebrew like e.g. Homebrewmenu from coldboot.
    It's not working because critical components are not loaded in this state.

    You can use multiple emunands or 1 sysnand and emunand
    To install Menuhax on one of them and use a a9lh bootmanager to manage booting.

    Have fun

    What GothicIII said, the ropbin and otherapp payloads do process takeover (typically on home menu or another system app) in order to launch *hax. It's not viable from an arm9 environment.
