    Okay, still trying to get behind this. Are you using a Micro SD adapter? These can cause trouble. Does the freeze (when it happens) happen right away, or after you did something else? There should actually be no accesses to the SD card when not required, so a crash inside the menu should not happen.

    Well, I tried to do it again and it did not happen again, maybe it was one of a million as it happens from time to time, and in fact I use an adapter even though it is guaranteed to make good contact. If it has not happened again, it could be said that it was by coincidence

    So fastboot3DS wont make any changes to the NAND if just placed on the SD, even if configured? Will the config files also stay on the SD or will they be written to NAND?

    #btw. thank you for all the great work for the 3DS community (GodMode9, Decrypt9,.... :wub::wub::wub:)

    If you use it as boot.firm along with any bootloader like B9S, it won't modify nand, unless used as CTRNAND boot.firm (nand:/boot.fim).

    Isn't superior, is just another alternative of sighax, also there is no place for alternatives on 3dsguide, just noobish setups.

    Yes it works without an SD card, but it will prefer the SD card as location for the config and will even copy an existing NAND config there.

    So, what are the advantages of FB3DS compared to B9S?

    Also : "If you are afraid of a brick", does that mean there's a chance of bricking?

    Copied from d0k3's post:
    Actually, you won't get any functionality that wasn't available before in some way or another, but stuff may be more comfortable to use. As you may know, there is already boot9strap, which is a simple bootloader that will chainload boot.firm from either the SD card or the CTRNAND, and you can also install GodMode9 as bootloader.

    Compared to GodMode9, you get more customizability (boot slots, assigning button combos to boot slots, selecting any .firm as your default), and also screen-off boots, which make your 3DS look unhacked. Compared to boot9strap, you get more customizability and integrated tools for NAND backups and restores. fastboot3DS can't dump the bootroms, though, which boot9strap can. fastboot3DS can be especially helpful if you're loading a CFW that has no integrated chainloader (bascially all but Luma 3DS), or if you want a multiboot setup.
    You have the same chance of a brick as if you were installing B9S, Its not almost anything.

    Alright, ty. I'm gonna assume I can assign CFW to boot slots from what I read on previous posts? If so, time to use ReiSix and Luma.
