    why
    yeah.. so, I've been pretty much forced to use my O3DS for my NDS games, because when i launch a NDS game on my N3DS, I get a black screen.. it like, turns off the screen and just hangs, doesn't do this in SysNAND, without Rxmode.. so i feel like it has something to do with TWL and Rxtools

    I remember on my O3DS i had some files to replace before i could use TWLSlot1Launcher

    Possibly my TWL_Firm patch files are not right? or is there something else?

    Also, when it locks up, I have to hold the power button for like.. a minute before it kicks me to the home screen

    Because i want to preserve the buttons on it.. they are already starting to lose, uuuh... tactile-ness? they aren't as stiff as they are supposed to be

    Also, my N3DS has a much longer battery life, so i could play longer (obviously)
    On my Acekard on my O3DS i get at least an hour and a half of play time before the battery dies

    so nobody had replied to me.. hmm, that's helpful

    I still have this problem, which also means that anything that used TWL mode doesn't work

    Could you give us a bit more detail about your setup?

    Ah, gotcha.

    rxTools TWL patches don't work on n3ds. You may want to patch it manually, or switch to a different CFW that does support TWL patches such as AuReiNand.

    Yeah, I know there are some floating around there.

    IIRC TWL will need to be patched manually on SysNAND anyway.

    You can use the 3dsx version of FBI on SysNAND if you have 9.2 SysNAND, or you can do FBI injection using Universal Inject Generator

    Then maybe reinstall an unmodified version and switch to AuReiNAND.
    You can boot it via Homebrew Menu so no need for a9lh.
    Also you have two possibilities:
    You boot to emuNAND and as long TWL_FIRM is not patched, it should work.
    Works for me at least and I'm on 10.7 and every game I own as well as blocked Action Replays.
    As it's easier when you use it anyways all the time, I recommend using this one.

    You can also boot to sysNAND were the original TWL_FIRM should be installed.
    There you need to make sure, you use updated sysNAND mode in AuReiNAND.
    I'm not sure if this is possible w/o a9lh but probably yes.

    Eventually rxTools is dead, all functionality can be found in Decrypt9 and AuReiNAND with addition that patches to FIRM are now compatible to N3DS.
    You can easily switch and won't regret it.

    RxTools DS launching is broken on the n3DS. One of the reasons nobody uses RxTools anymore.

    Do you have the boot.3dsx in root?
    Maybe try reinstalling it and don't forget to create the theme cache by clicking the theme selection in the home menu.

    How did you do it, merge folders?
    AuReiNAND.dat needs to be in root and the firms for the N3DS need to be in a folder called aurei.
    The FIRMS.7z can be obtained via the github page.
    You need to pick the FIRMs in the N3DS and a9lh folder an paste it in aurei.
    That's all, even easier than on rxTools.

    aurei needs the a9lh bin even if you don't have a9lh?

    Also, i couldn't have merged any folder sif aurei wasn't installed before

    The AuReiNAND.dat is like code.bin from rxTools or Launcher.dat from some other CFW.
    The arm9loaderhax.bin isn't necessary that' true, additionally the 3dsx boots the .dat file so that is also important.

    Great, so do I, you can make it as boot option 1 with autoboot, that's what I would do if I already wouldn't have a9lh.
    If you choose the 3dsx, the options menu is more reliably visible, if you boot .dat directly it sometimes shows but however isn't displayed and the time isn't that much less to do this imo.
    Also the offset has to be specified.
