I have rxTools coldboot but due to it, I have no way of accessing to homebrew (or so I see it that way.) Is there a way for me to access homebrew on my 2DS 9.2 sysNAND while having the files intact for me to access cfw coldboot?

I am really doing this just to get my friend oot3Dhax.

It still conflicts with CFW Autoboots unless you use CTRBootManager
No, you just have to hex edit your payload so your menuhax points towards a different .3dsx file, while yellows8's launcher would point towards boot.3dsx as normal.

Keep your homebrew launcher as boot.3dsx, and get your menuhax payload to point towards anything else (4-characters long) in a hex editor by searching for "boot.3dsx" text-string and replacing it.

Then whatever .3dsx file you use to autoboot your CFW, you will rename to match what you changed the payload to.

Personally, I used nhax.3dsx
So when I start up my 3DS, it loads nhax.3dsx which is CTRBootManager, which loads rxTools code.bin
Then once I am on emunand, I can use yellows8's launcher, which will load boot.3dsx, which is my Homebrew Launcher.

You named your homebrew launcher as "boot_hb.3dsx", yeah?
(Or whatever is set in your CtrBootManager config)

When you select HomebrewMenu on CtrBootManager, on the bottom screen, does it say /boot_hb.3dsx?

By default, CtrBootManager looks for boot_hb.3dsx, so if you never changed the config in there, that's what you'll have to use.
If you did change the config, have to make sure you named it the same as in the config.

Alright, got it working thanks. :P
I just changed the file name to boot_hb.3dsx.

Or you can hex edit the payload. I did mine, searched for the string 'boot.3dsx' changed it to xxxx.3dsx (where xxxx is anything you want) then rename the actual boot.3dsx to match. Then you have no conflicts.
