    I have an Old 3DS XL on 9.2U. I’m trying to install rxtools to play 3ds roms ideally in emunand mode (without running the cubic ninja each time or buying a gateway). I’ve got a few questions as I’m pretty new to this. I have a R4 flashcard and cubic ninja (I’d prefer to not use cubic ninja as I’m using this on my N3DSXL to use pastacfw).

    My main question is if I need to downgrade to 4.2 in order to install emunand/rxtools? I’d like the hack to be semi-permanent unlike the cubic ninja hack because I only have one cubic ninja which I use for the N3DSXL.

    Also do I need to install MSET? (I don’t really understand what that does). Is RXtools preferable to cakescfw also?

    I’m assuming there is a step-by-step tutorial just like there was for the N3DSXL to use pastacfw, but I haven’t found a good comprehensive guide. Will this guide do what I’m looking for: http://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/

    This guy also seemed to do what I’m trying to do (He seemed to have started on < 4.5 to begin with though):https://www.reddit.com/r/3dshacks/comments/3d08qr/o3ds_xl_on_43_how_to_intallrun_rxtools_cias_with/

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
