    Hey guys!

    I used that guide to install rxTools and set up my emuNAND. I unlinked my NNID from SysNAND using TinyFormat to link it again on my emuNAND.
    But now everything i my Mii Plaza is gone and eShop titles like Mario Kart 7 lost all save data.
    Is it possible to restore things like that?

    Im using menuhax to coldboot into rxTools.

    And is it possible to install a custome theme on my emuNAND? I tried using CHMM2 and menuhax theme install option after booting into emuNAND but both seem to brake menuhax. Becuase after a reboot im on sysNAND.

    CHMM2 works on emuNAND, but you have to launch the homebrew launcher from emuNAND to install the theme on emuNAND. I suggest installing yellows8's hblauncher_loader cia for access to the homebrew launcher from emunand

    I did install hblauncher_loader, but I cant make it work properly. If I edit the payload, menuhax does boot into Homebrew Launcher and not in to CTRBootManager on boot.
    Is it somehow possible to configure the menuhax so that it loads CTRBootManager on boot and The Homebrew Launcher after using hblauncher?

    So, I booted into emuNAND after a cold boot. Launched hblauncher which loaded CTRBootManager and started the Homebrew Launcher.
    After going into CHMM2 I select and loaded a theme and rebooted.
    Sadly, menuhax doesnt seem to work again.

    Here's what I did:
    1. Rename the ctrbootmanager boot.3dsx to buut.3dsx
    2. Open the menuhax payload in a text editor and change anywhere it says "boot" to "buut" and save
    That way, menuhax launches ctrbootmanager, but hblauncher_loader launches the homebrew launcher
    Hope that helps :)

    ALSO! Have a copy of the homebrew launcher you use (either smealum or the mashers one) as boot.3dsx

    Aw man, of curse!
    Yeah, thanks. Now it works like a charm. Thank you soooo much!

    Sadly CHMM2 still wont work and I have no idea how to restore my save data.

    It took me a while to figure it out so I guess if I can help I may as well
    I'm glad it worked!

    Not sure about your other problems but good luck

    Gambia, The
    So I found this post and it looks just like my problem!
    Could someone send me a link to the latest nightly so I can try that? Or the one mentioned in the post?
    The dropbox link on https://lavanoid.github.io/ wont let me download anything.

    And I read somewhere that things like mii plaza save files are stored in the 3DSs internal memory? So I can assume they are gone after I formatted my sysNAND using TinyFormat?
    I still have NAND.bin file befor I formatted my SDCard for emuNAND. Is there a way to "extract" the save files from there?

    Oh and one little side question: How do I uninstall .cia apps via FBI? I switch the mode to Delete Title, but how do I find out which title is wich?

    Easier to use BigBlueMenu, simply delete the title ID corresponding to the app

    Why would you bother with homebrew custom theme managers, just get this. :P

    Will this work with menuhax?

    Small update. Still no luck with the theme. :/
    So I found out that savegame data for the mii plaza and stuff are stored on the SDCard and I still have old 3DS Backup befor formating for EmuNAND.
    Sadly, everytime I try to replace the mii plaza save data, the app itself tells me that my save is corrupted and uses an old one instead.

    I already made a new dbs folder with a emptey import.db and title.db and restored them in the Data Management menu.

    What do I have to do to restore my old saves? Or is it just not possible?

    Sorry for bumping, but I have one last question and I didnt want to create a new thread!

    So I managed to recovery my saves. I just had to restore my EmuNAND with my sysNAND Backup I made!
    And after doing that and updating to a new rxTools version, I was able to set custome themes on my emuNAND.

    One last thing:
    Is it possible to use hblauncher without a internet connection? Or do i have to use Ironhax to have offline homebrew access?
