    Why would you want to stay with RxTools though. Luma is better from what I have seen.

    I actually looked for several hours and couldn't find it. Now that was a few months back. Even then, if it doesn't have FIRM0/1 protection and run NATIVE_FIRM 11.0, it's still useless and people shouldn't use it.
    No one should be using RXTools anymore, there's no reason nor excuse to keep using it
    If people are still using those CFW's then they seriously need to upgrade. But I almost never see a thread made about them, so it's safe to assume the userbase is either completely fizzled out or super quiet.

    I use RXTools and have been since last year. No problems for me. I actually think it's more convenient. My step son's 2DS uses Luma and I'm ALWAYS having to upgrade the Luma build in order for it to work with certain games and apps. But with my RXTools 3dsxl, I've never had to update anything other than the emunand's firmware. Some people don't need to use Luma, why are you so passionate about people changing over? Who cares?

    Edit: I looked back at your original post and you make 0 good points to switch over. Because RXTools is "dead" and "unstable"? How so?

    I find that you are "always updating" to be a bit of a lie there. My boyfriends are both running Luma3DS on their CTRNAND and I never have to upgrade to get games to works. As well I never had to upgrade to get it to work on the latest sysNAND. So I am just going to say that you are flat lying.
    People don't need to just use Luma3DS, there's other CFWs that they can switch to. Why am I trying to get people to update? Because more and more games are coming out with a NATIVE_FIRM requirement, such as the cartage version of Pokemon Sun/Moon and Animal Crossing update. The CFW is becoming more and more out of date and it won't be long before Nintendo finally adds a NATIVE_FIRM requirement to the Homemenu, locking RXTools users out.
    I gave 0 points? You mean outside of the fact that the CFW is completely dead and unstable, mixed with the fact that you aren't even using RXTools. I made a some pretty good points, you are just choosing to ignore them.
    The better question is, why do you want to continue using a dead CFW that is slowly loosing support for new games? And why do you feel the need to lie?

    I have never had to update Luma to get any game or title to work.

    It's like a reminder that RXTools will always be out of date and not worth it.

    IIRC, rxTools wasn't the first to support a9lh, it actually was the last of all scene CFW's.
    At least judging by dates of commits it certainly wasn't the first one.
    Here's arm9loaderhax branch of rxTools: https://github.com/roxas75/rxTools/commits/arm9loaderhax
    And here are commits for a9lh support for other CFW's: ReiNand, AuReiNand (Luma), CakesFW.
    So, it looks like rxTools didn't have that advantage either. ¯\(ツ)/¯

    It was the first in private.

    There seems to have been some branches that happened later, but they aren't the private one.

    Are there any other sources to prove that they had working version even before ReiNand?
    This video was uploaded after more than a week since ReiNand's a9lh commit.
    I'm just curious about this. I actually thought that Cakes was the first to support a9lh in private.

    Actually looking deeper into it, I can't find any of the posts related to this anymore. So chances are they were just claims, then deleted once nothing came of it.
    These claims were made shortly after A9LH was made public, but I can't find them anymore. So I guess they were just claims and nothing more.

    That's funny, because you actually commented in this thread where outdated Luma was the cause of not being to play online: http://gbatemp.net/threads/to-play-or-use-online-you-must-need-11-0-0-3-now.427164

    There's another time where I can think of outdate Luma causing an issue, but can't remember exactly what it was. Never had to update RXTools since I got it a year ago.

    You do realize that updating Luma involves replacing a single file, right?

    Yeah, one time its friends module patch didn't work on an updated version of it, and it was swiftly fixed. If you are online to update or play online, it takes 10 seconds to update Luma. It's not a big deal.

    If something breaks with rxTools, you get to find a new CFW because it is not getting updated.
