    I've been reading and people are saying RXTools is still unstable. Is ReiNAND or Pasta any better? Also, can any of the 3 be launched by MSET?

    Thanks!

    rxtools is stable. I'm not sure where people are coming up with it being unstable

    reinand is pretty much just the home menu with signature patches removed.

    rxtools has other apps it can use(fbi injection, devmode, nand dumping, etc).

    pasta is just signature patches removed but only works in sysnand. This means installing a bad cia can lead to a brick. Least recommended because of it using sysnand.

    all 3 launch through mset

    thanks! btw, what features are still absent in RXTools n3DS? I read on the manual that it's missing features that the o3DS has.

    gbatemp
    bottom splash screen
    home menu region free
    Games showing up when they aren't patched to be region free.

    freemultipatcher does fix it

    And also:
    - DS cart (or the entire TWL support) on emuNAND

    It used to be supported on rxTools nightly Oct.02 version and before.
    CakesFW supports DS cart on emuNAND properly though.

    that place
    .
    • I have non-region-patched games showing up and playing just fine in rxTools on my n3DS... I've tried other CFWs and those games simply don't appear.

    You forgot to mention the fact it only supports up to 9.5 as emuNAND firmware version. This is not specific to rxTools but that's still a difference between N3DS and O3DS.
    And it doesn't annoy full pirates who can get spoofed and cryptofixed cias but it does annoy people who are still using retail cartridges.

    @Adeka btw, is there a version of rxTools that I can use my out of region cartridges without using NTR? or is there like an NTR alternative without that annoying menu?
