    Whenver i run rxtools it always goes through the installation data suite and shows this [....x..] then "done press A" and it shows that blue screen with the guy then takes a while and boots to emunand and everything works well and i tried some games and works, but is it normal for the installation data suite to run everytime i run rxtools ? its really slow to boot and makes rebooting so annoying and frustrating.
    btw im using rxTools 2.6 , gonna update to latest nightily soon once i gather all informations and im using mset.
    thanks in advance :D

    Class 4 is fine. I'm sure it's just an issue with RxTools. Don't get discouraged. ( Yes, I know loading times are annoying... Especially Smash. ) I don't think you can really do much about it. Try running on a SD card of higher class. Mine is class 10.

    You're using the highest. I think... I use 2.4 only for Devmode. It is sometimes a little slow with me. How slow is yours? Only a little or a lot?

    takes about 1 minute to boot its not really something but when u want to try stuff and keep rebooting then it feels annoying, Well thanks anyway u made feel better about it lol
    When i said newer versions i meant Nightilies , e.g : https://lavanoid.github.io/

    I thought you meant loading times as in games... Again, it may just be your 3DS/2DS with the SD card. Try as ^^^ they said and update the firmware.bin file.

    Yes. In the instructions, redo the part about downloading firmware.bin. Then delete your current firmware.bin (or rename it to something else until things are working again) and replace it with the newly downloaded one.

    download python 2.7 and run the firmware.py in the latest rxtools nightly

    also delete the entire rxtools folder and replace with the latest nightly just to be safe.

    Quick help please , the latest nightily generates "firm" folder, so i should delete the firmware.bin and put the "firm" folder on the rxtools directory ?

    when the data installations shows [....x..] ; that means your sysnand is missing some files needed for normal booting ( i guess gba emulation?)
    all you have to do is run rxtools in dev mode- use (rxtools 2.5.2 , 2.6 doesn't have this) , use sysupdater to update your sysnansd ( if your 3ds is 4.5 , then download firmware 4.5full from usual place ; and proceed like explained)

    it's not a class issue,
    also is not a firmware.bin direct issue,
    the issue is you have missed the AGB firm and some other files in your EmuNAND (I guess your SYSNAND it's X.X.X-4X or X.X.X-0X)
    To fix this update your emunand with SysUpdater, then delete the rxTools folder and re-copy rxTools files to your SD Card.
    this WILL FOR SURE be fixed doing that

    I'm not being rude. I know nothing of this stuff. I just like to try and help even if I know nothing on topic. So, you are smarter in this subject.
