    Yeah in both cases I get the menu afterwards (I have to press a button after firmware decryption but that's part of how it works)

    And yes, when /data doesn't exist, I see exactly like you described.

    Edit: just saw your last sentence. Actually, settings.json has not existed for a while now. I thought you removed it or something?

    Edit2: I checked my sd again, and I have system.json .. So this time, instead of deleting the whole data folder, I deleted everything inside except for system.json. When I ran rxtools, the setup worked great this time (font extraction followed by firm decryption with text).

    Edit3: deleted data folder once again, and we are back to firm decryption on first boot, font extraction on second boot. So I guess system.json fixes this or something?

    Edit4: after deleting the data folder, and doing the setup again, system.json did NOT regenerate. This is what I noticed with all my previous installs. Maybe you can look into that?

    Thanks!
    Can confirm the issue - data folder are not created before font extraction.
    As for settings.json it is affected too, so will be created now only on settings change.
    Fixing preventive /data folder creation will eliminate both issues.

    Works great now.
    I did notice however that between font extraction and firmware decryption the bar doesnt go back to the start. It doesnt effect anything so you can leave it alone.
    Here is a video if you wanna look at it though:

    The same for me now. Looks like the last font stages and the first firmware stage are quick and now there are no two f_mkdir calls between them, so both progress bars melted in one progress visually :) you can notice a slight progress increase on caption appearance.

    One more try please. SDXC switched in max performance mode (higher power consumption rating) mode.

    This is for the read/dump issue. SDXC have power save mode with power consumption as SD/SDHC and high perfomance mode with higher power rating. By default power saving mode is selected, so ther is no difference with SDHC. Enabling high performance mode could help with the transfer speed related issues (the one we actually have). Or it could not work at all since 3DS controller have no official SDXC support and may not provide necessary power for that mode.
    Setup is done, for the moment, already cherry-picked it into master.

    Well, like @duke_srg said before, he needs help with the cfw part of rxtools. That includes both a9lh and 11.3 NATIVE_FIRM.. Unfortunately looks like no one is willing to help :(

    A sample fix was committed at one point but from what I understand it didn't work.

    Hopefully this project received further contributions

    The one we were doing? I think it should be kept at low priority for now, since that might be my SD that was messed up or something..?

    Well I didn't mean cfw itself. I meant other functions within the gui the don't work yet like injecting H&S :P

    Before njectios fox I was planning to make common inject/replace/firm repository based on nus path. Currently very busy at work so new features are on hold.

    Lima3DS was "inspired by RXTools." This is a complete rework of the RXTools code.
