    I'm honestly panicking a lot right now. I to installed menuhax on my 9.2 o3ds, and tried to test it. When I turn on my 3ds, there is just a black screen, if I press the power button it gives me the option to power off or return to the homemenu. If I choose to return to the homemenu, it just freezes. Is there any fix to this? Please help me

    You can try to reinstall the Home Menu (but I saw some people saying that's risky)

    Try booting your 3DS without the SD inserted. If it boots (which it should), then you can delete the folder where your theme extdata is stored on your SD at sd:/Nintendo 3DS/<ID0>/<ID1>/extdata/00000000/000002cd (backup the 000002cd folder on your computer before deleting it from your SD), and your 3DS should boot again with the SD card inserted.

    Edit: Ninj'd, somewhat.

    No problem. Sometimes when installing menuhax (below 11.0) your theme data can get corrupted for whatever reason, but there should never be a risk of a brick.
