    I can't seem to get my head around the tutorials regarding this, I am trying to load themes using extdatatool on Gateway.

    I have dev menu installed, a body_LZ.bin ready to go and HomeMenu_ExtDataTool.cia(I'm not sure if this is the right thing). I just need a step by step and what to do now.

    Any help will be appreciated!

    When you install the custom theme, you're supposed to go back to the home menu then restart the 3DS and boot into emunand again as far as I know.

    But have you tried Custom Home Menu Manager? It's easier to use, and all you have to do is press A on the theme you want, then exit the app and hold the power button down briefly until the grey screen appears, then press home.

    It sounds like a hassle, I randomly got it working before but forgot the steps.
    Anyway
    I would rather use CHMM but I thought there was no gateway compatiability because ninj isn't supported in 9.5, could you tell me how to install CHMM?
    Thanks. :lol:


    Edit : oh wow there's a .cia in the CHMM.rar

    Thanks for putting me on this direction, I think I can figure it out from here!

    Yep no prob. Just get a "Themes" folder on your SD card and in it, folders that have a body_LZ.bin file. The folders can be named anything and you can include a "preview.png" so that you can see it as you cycle through the themes.
