    I have been running through all of the steps of various tutorials on how to hack NSMB2 and play it on my 3ds. Here is my info:
    3ds Model: OLD 3DS XL, gold and black Zelda Triforce (Hyrule and LoRule edition)
    Region: USA (U)
    Firmware version: 11.2.0-35U
    Hax method: soundhax-usa-o3ds

    Here is my process:
    I load the Nintendo 3DS sound app and play the soundhax file. It boots into Homebrew. I go to braindump and I dump my cartridge of NSMB2. Good. End up with a folder containing the exefs.bin and romfs.bin files in it. I transfer those to my PC. I use RomFS Extractor to extract romfs.bin. It creates a romfs_ folder with all of the game's data. I use CoinKiller to edit level 1. Save. Then I use RomFS Builder to build that folder back into a .bin file and I name it 0007AE00.romfs because my game title ID is 0007AE00 for the nsmb2 regular american version. I put this 0007AE00.romfs file into an empty folder on the ROOT of my SD card called "hans". Turn on my 3DS. Boot soundhax into homebrew. Open Hans. Select nsmb2. Hold L button as hans boots. Get to option screen. set romfs to YES. Hit ok to run. Then I get an "invalidated icache" error. I tried running the game through hans without anything selected, just play the game normally with no hacks, but I still get this error message.
    Any idea why this is happening? Thanks in advanced.

    So I have to downgrade my 3ds firmware in order to get this to work? Even though soundhax works for all versions?

    If you want an installibe version, then yes. If you want to use hans, either resolve the problem yourself or wait till tomorrow and post again in the rom hacks forum

    Yeah I had my doubts. Well this sucks. Thanks for your help. So cias are more stable huh? Its weird because the first time I used braindump, I got cxi file then I used something called oldbraindump and got an actual folder with the exefs and romfs files in it. with the cxi, I used crtool but with the latter, I used romfx extractor. The last method I used was this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-nsmb2-custom-levels-mods-the-easier-way.437207/

    yeah CIA is better- its like installing the real game. unless the rom hack causes crashes, its much stabler. I use cias for any hacks i can like neo x/y and ctgp 7

    Why would you need to downgrade? You do realise that since safehax, 11.2 is the new 9.2, right?

    I would rather not downgrade if I can help it. But I really want to test my nsmb2 hack but I cant because Hans wont load anything. It always has the "invalidated icache" error. No matter what I load or how I load it.

    HANS is bad.

    Just follow http://3ds.guide and start using NTR with LayeredFS.

    To 9.2? No.
    To 2.1? Yes.

    Go to 3ds.guide is what hes saying, follow it and get 19lh. then you can upgrade, downgrade do whatever and not need hans- you can use ntr launcher instead.
