    I'm running homebrew on a New 3DS of firmware 11.2, and I'm trying to run r3ddragon from 3dsx. When I get to the "Load ROM" screen, it crashed. I read something about updating libkhax, but I have no clue how. I'm aware that the cia file fixes these issues, but being on 11.2, I have no way to install cia files (I don't think). Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you, but I'd like to stay away from CFW or downgrading firmware, in fear of bricking my console or it being too different.

    You said the CIA version fixes the issue you're having. Setting up CFW and installing said said will fix your issue. Problem solved. You won't brick if you follow the guide to a T.

    Its close to impossible to brick using that guide unless you ignore all safety check (and their is alot).
    Once cfw is install the console will be pretty much the same as a stock console but with a few extra apps.

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    If you follow that guide exactly and don't put your device in sleep mode while on 2.1.0 you won't brick.

    The guide I linked makes you do nand backups and requires no research. Extremely noob friendly and brick proof unlike video guides. This is why it is the most recommended 3ds hacking guide

    Make your own thread and don't hijack someone else's.

    R3dDragon?
    The Virtual Boy emulator?

    The concept for it was nice, but it's been more than 4 months since the last change to the code, and to be honest it doesn't run good at all.
    I wish I could play VB in proper 3D on my 3DS, but sadly that is something which would have to wait a little bit more.
    Also, expect something lower than 10fps with this emu.

    I believe I heard it runs awfully on an old 3ds, but I have a new 3ds, so I hope that works better.

    I have a N3DS, and sadly it doesn't run any better. :/
    Sorry.

    The only "decent" way to run Virtual Boy games on any 3DS is through Mednafen VB on RetroArch, but that gives 24fps tops, lagging hardly. So sadly no VB good emulation on a 3DS yet.
