hello everyone i had a n3dsxl and i bought it with reinand cfw from ebay.
now i wonder about should i continue with reinand or shuold i change it with luma3ds ?
and if luma3ds is better, how can i install it ?
i noticed yesterday i have ironhax on my console and i installed ironfall game but it gives me update error so i counldnt play it, so how can i update it ?
and i read about if i delete ironhax save i will lose hack, so if i delete ironfall game, wwill it delete the save data same time ? and can i back up my ironhax save data for any future problems ?
final question; i heard about freeshop but no idea about how to install that, so can anyone give me a guide for that ?

my ofw is 9.2 so please tell me how can i install luma3ds with it
thanks for all helps, im waiting for your answers :))

I get gray screen first (like no signal old tv channel) and colorful screen on boot up
And thanks for answer :))
Sounds like you have menuhax. Uninstall it (take out SD card, turn on 3DS, put SD card back in, change theme) then follow https://3ds.guide from the beginning. Follow the optional Move emuNAND section when offered.

It looks like luma3ds is new and better, I will try to install it tonight, right now my cfw is rei 11.6.e so will it be 11.6 luma ?
I mean should I go with clean install (formatting micro sd card) or directly install over reinand ?
Sorry for my noob questions but I have no idea for that and trying to figure out everything

Okay, thanks again, when I'm trying I probably will ask more questions :D
I have r4 gold card pro and I don't know it is clone or not but I gives me error message with cfw, I'm using it with starting ofw, is there a way to use it in cfw ?

Try again after installing B9S and Luma, which has DS patching stuff built in

I will try, thank you so much :)
I have much works to do, need to install luma3ds, my brother gave me his Wii u and I installed haxchi but I still need to find how to play n64 games, and my friend moved another country and gave me his ps3 slim, last week I changed internal hdd and I installed 4.82.1 rebug but I still have to install lots of pkg games and ps2 games and I have to download exclusive games and I have to install add-ons on my psvita (nodrm or something like that, I don't even know name) and my ps4 is waiting on 3.55 ofw I am sure I jailbreak is soon for that and I must deal with it too..
So long and boring things are waiting for me...

Did you uninstall menuhax before you started like I said? I think you didn't. Go to https://3ds.guide/troubleshooting and follow the delete home menu extdata section. That's how to uninstall menuhax while not having access to the home menu.

It isn't bricked. Menuhax works by producing an error in the home menu (hence the name menuhax) on boot on purpose which launches your CFW or homebrew launcher. However Luma captures that error and displays it instead of using it to launch the homebrew launcher. All you have to do is remove the data that produces that error and you'll be fine. Nothing bricky happening :)
