    I am trying to boot RxTools through CTRBootManager and menuhax, but RxTools only sometimes boots. Sometimes, it will give me a black screen, while sometimes it will give me a black screen with a single green pixel in the bottom left corner of the screen. I would use the MSET exploit, but I learned that I can't play DS games w/o me having to reset the exploit. So how can I boot RxTools with CTRBootManager and Menuhax and make it work everytime?

    EDIT: I am on 9.2U o3ds with emu 10.3U

    There's some things in the settings that can fix that. Forgot what though. :unsure:

    Maybe this will jog your memory. This is what is in settings:

    The only thing I can think of is setting the timeout higher.

    I set the timeout value in the boot.cfg to 1 and it resolved my issue. I was having the exact same problem when the timeout value was set to 0

    the thing was that my timeout was 3, but it worked once I changed it to 5.

    I guess some configurations require additional time for the exploit to "kick in" at least we found a solution!

    Kinda weird how the default config gives it a timeout of 3 when it doesn't even work with that value. The devs should probably fix that :)

    It depends because I have a 2DS and it works great with the timeout value set to 0. RxTools boots everytime with no issues but on my OLD 3DSXL I had to set it to 1 as it would black screen everytime

    I do, but I've got no interest in downgrading or setting up RXTools.

    I use timeout=1, autobootfix=12 and I have 100% boot rate on my o3DS 9.2 sysnand to 10.3 emunand.

    Maybe it depends on the SD card class? I use an SDXC UHS1.

    I'm still not getting 100% boot rate with your settings. Maybe it has to do with the offset? Mine is 0x12000
