    Hello guys,

    Just want to know that. I just noted that Smea released one new starter kit with new updated MenuHAX and I want to know if I would be able to install it over my old menuhax in coldboot thing. Can I? How should I proceed, just copy and replace the 3ds folder to the root of my SD card?

    Thanks in advance.

    There's no point in installing menuhax 2.1 when you already have 2.0 installed and working.
    2.1 is only really for 10.2-10.3 users

    2.1 installs pretty much exactly the same thing as 2.0 does when installed on 9.0-10.1, with the difference that it automatically creates the extra extdata used for custom theme support without you having to manually go in theme selector at least once. But other than that it's pretty much the same.

    9.0-10.1, menuhax will install themehax, while on 10.2-10.3, it'll install shufflehax

    But regardless of having 2.0 or 2.1 if you already had 2.0 installed there's literally nothing different from 2.1

    I succesfully installed BrowserHax and then install Menuhax but if i exit the homebrew launcher the themes are set to default, why is this happening?

    Because menuhax replaces the theme with a blank one that's modified to cause a buffer overflow when loaded.

    It was possible to build menuhax using a custom theme back with the 1.2/1.3 releases, but with menuhax 2.0/2.1 it creates additional extdata that normally isn't there on a non-hacked system in a different place, and whenever menuhax isn't loaded it will instead load a theme of your choice.

    You can set that custom theme in menuhax manager.
