    I'm using Smashax to get to the Homebrew channel to install the PSMDhax, but whenever I select the program on the channel itself, the top screen goes black and the bottom screen goes red. I've seen this before when I didn't have the Homebrew starter kit installed in the right folder, so I moved the PSMDhax folder around, but it still gave the same result.

    I've tried a fresh install of the hax, but it's always the same problem. It's a N3DS with 10.7E firmware. The game itself is eShop.

    Is there anything I can do to get it working?

    If downgrading is your goal, ditching PSMDHax is probably your best bet. I've tested with other people and we had no success in getting it to run a kernel exploit for downgrading. Your best bet is probably OOT3DSHax.

    That being said, make sure you have all the files from here, http://smd.salthax.org/

    It should be /3ds/supermysterychunkhax_installer/*, and should have the xml file, 3dsx file, and smdh file.

    Shit, that's what I was wondering. What other options do I have? I bought PDSMhax cuz I couldn't get OoT very easily :/

    Well, the Nintendo Selects version OoT is hackable, and it's only like 20 bucks, so that's a very viable option.

    Your only other option is Cubic Ninja. I haven't tested much with VVVVVV but I had no success with it either, and given that it's off the eshop anyway at this point...

    Is it on the eshop? I could grab it from Amazon, I guess

    Yeah, both Cubic Ninja and VVVVVV are probably out of my price range

    I haven't personally tested whether the eshop version works to downgrade, but others have said it has. It costs the same price as the physical version (which I know works for downgrading)

    Gambia, The
    I have successfully downgraded a New3DS and an Old3DS with PSMDhax. I had to format the New3DS though because it always got stuck at hax init.
    So Mystery Dungeon should not be the problem, at least for what i know.

    Edit: Are you sure you slected the right payload? The New3DS one for New3DS and the Old3DS one for Old3DS?

    The app isn't even BOOTING for him

    His Primary entry point is Smashax. Y'Know, that one exploit nobody has been able to downgrade with? (lol)
