    Hi everyone,

    I have an old 3ds on 8.1U and I am attempting to launch the homebrew launcher. I scan the QR code and it takes me to what I think is sliderHAX. I click the right end of it and it flashes yellow then gray. It freezes/ hangs at gray. I can scroll around, but nothing happens. I need to access the homebrew launcher so I can do Menuhax. Currently I use the go-gateway to load the Gateway menu and play my games.

    First make sure you have got starter.zip file correctly extracted and put in console SD card (boot.3dsx file must be at root of sd). Delete any exploit browserhax .bin files left in root of SD card (might be partially downloaded).

    If that's done already then try connecting using different WiFi connection. Having yellow screen means that the exploit has been successful and might be getting stuck at either downloading payload or missing or broken boot.3dsx file.

    yea I think it loads sliderHAX. That one sight autoloads the best exploit I thought.

    Well I did all of that. Its still not working. Its stuck on grey. Is it supposed to take minutes the first time on grey? Or should it be seconds? This is getting annoying.

    *hax only works on 9.0 and up, except for Ninjhax 1.x. Launch rxTools with the spider exploit, boot in pasta mode and update your system to 9.0-9.2 using sysupdater. http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-u...om-4-1-8-1-to-9-2-0-20-with-pasta-cfw.389187/

    The ones Im reading say It works on anything 10.0 and below. I just really dont want to downgrade or upgrade or alter sysNAND really.

    Ah yes, it seems that browserhax for HBL only works on 9.x and above firmware (till 10.6 at the moment). Like others have mentioned you need to upgrade to between 9.0 - 9.2

    I thought it worked on lower versions too as there is browserhax to run different payloads but not HBL or any kind of .3dsx homebrew

    https://3dbrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Exploits

    Also, MenuHax relies on Themes stored on console SD card to run exploit, therefore you have to update USA sysNAND to between 9.0 to 9.2

    Any sysNAND version higher than 9.2 will ONLY allow homebrew and NO CFW (unless you setup A9LH on your console first, which is complicated)
