    Hi,
    I've been using only Ninjhax 1.x to run Luma 7.0 till now, as latest Luma version only supports boot9strap, I've been looking to upgrade.

    Following the 3ds guide, i've successfully ran udsploit (with wifi on), but launching safehax only gets "[!] PM INIT FAILED!' message. I've already tried different versions of safehax rev: 21, 19, 18 and the one compiled by arc13.

    I've also saw someone suggest use fasthax instead of udsploit, which I tried, but launching safehax after fasthax resulted in a black screen.

    So I don't know what to do now, any help or insight would be appreciated!

    Are you using the latest starter kit? Redownload it from the guide and replace your boot.3dsx.

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm already using the latest starter kit with boot.3dsx

    The guide says to, but you really don't need to use safehax on firmwares <9.3. just use the 3dsx build of the arm9 payload if it exists. Or, rename the payload to decrypt9wip.bin and run the decrypt 9 3dsx.

    What are you using to run it? I had problems getting udsploit/safehax to work with other entrypoints but when I used soundhax it worked almost immediately.

    I'm using Ninjhax as the entrypoint. Maybe it's a good idea to give soundhax a try.

    I guess there's a reason the guide specifically says to use soundhax.

    It worked with soundhax, thanks a lot! Guess I missed that part in the guide.
