Hey, I have a few various questions here and wasnt able to really find any info.

1. I was trying to have rxtools boot automatically from cold boot. Setting menuhax to Type 2 for auto boot causes RXtools launching to trigger menuhax again and then eventually freezes with a red screen on bottom. Is there a way to set that up?

2. Games that prompt for an update. I loaded Tomodatchi Life and said there was an update and to go to eShop. This would be independent of System update, correct? My emunand is currently 9.2 still so I am guess (2ds) i would need to update emunand to 10.3 to be allowed into eShop and then update would apply fine?

3. I followed some steps on converting .3ds to .cia. It hady me create a bin file on my pc, copy to 3ds then run rxtools decrypter for xors. My question is are cia's created on 1 system ok for others? Any serial conflicts for online play? I recall reading 3ds needed different fields to not get flagged and banned. And that cia's didnt have that issue and used something else, i think tied to the system.

1 - changing the theme in emunand stopped my o3ds freezing on the red screen after using menuhax to set the whole thing up.

2 - updating emunand to 10.3 is fine for both old 3ds and 2ds but not new 3ds - new 3ds is max of 9.5 i think

3 - not sure about this one - there are cia's available online that are online patched and firmware spoofed etc...

regards

1. Perfect, that makes sense. So I guess I can set R as the normal boot button, let Menuhax go once normal, then hold R to bypass 2nd time and then swap themes to kill Menuhax on Emunand
2. So if I load up eShop, it will fail if on old firmware or go through, in which case updating is fine?
Is there a tutorial on how package my own downloaded patches? As of now the 2DS's should have no problem updating emu and downloading it but the N3DS im unsure. Or is there a hacked eshop that will allow spoofing of firm version for N3DS?
3. Ill ask around and see what else I can find.

Making Cias is fine there are no serial conflicts as the console generate the id for the cia + console combination so its different each console, so they cna be shared and wor online fine

serials etc Only apply to flashcards and .3ds files


Also for eshop http://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-access-nnid-and-eshop-on-9-5-0-23-emunand.407714/unread
Ok, so the ID is generated off the info from the device currently running the game not the one used to decrypt. Thats better. New 3ds is a hassle to keep popping the microsd out of. Always concerned battery may pop out when doing writes.

Thanx for the heads up as Triforce heroes was one I was going to try out.

I'm looking into something called NTR CFW 3.2 which i think can spoof the eshop on the N3DS - i'm hoping it will update the games etc...
This could help you -----> https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...eshop-and-more-on-new-3ds-and-old-3ds.386591/
Thank you. Ill give it a whirl tonight.

To stop the bootloop, you could also unlink your nands, to do so, remove your sd card then do a system format on sysNAND.
