    Homebrew will load up, but when I click on an app to get it started, such as CHMM2, it'll start loading normally and then it'll be stuck on a red bottom screen but a black top screen that has some weird looking lines and stuff, which is normal when loading Homebrew apps. Help, please!

    Uhh... I know how to get SoundHax on my 3DS. I did that using a guide. I've used SoundHax before and it worked. It stopped working now for some reason. I downloaded the otherapp and the 3dsx stuff again to see if that was the problem, but it wasn't. I made sure I didn't name otherapp to "otherapp.bin.bin". Can you explain why you just left 3DS Guide there though?

    Oh, nevermind, my bad. Sorry about that. I get it now. What are the pros and cons of using Arm9loaderhax, though? Will it stop me from using anything?
    I don't think I did. When I went to the Homebrew website I specifically made it so that I downloaded 11.0.3-36U's payload (otherapp).

    Just to clarify to everyone, Homebrew boots into the menu. Homebrew works and it loads up. The only thing that doesn't work is the apps, like CHMM2 or JKSM. When I click an app, instead of going to show me what I'm opening up like it used to, the app just starts to load and then promptly crashes.

    Honestly I do agree with the idea of just installing A9LH while you can. 11.4 patched out the exploit that was found in 11.3, so now is your best chance to install it.
    One if biggest benefits to installing A9LH is having CFW on your sysNAND. Which also means you can the homebrew launcher cia, which is a far more stable method of using the homebrew launcher. The cons? If you close a new3DS when it's on 2.1 (needed for installing A9LH) you perma-brick the system. After installing A9LH, there isn't a single con, all pros
    If you don't want to install A9LH, just delete your payloads and try again

    So, do I delete all my homebrew stuff and then follow the guide? I don't want to install A9LH without completely starting from scratch just in case having the stuff I added to homebrew breaks it and bricks my 3DS.

    I'm getting this same problem on my 11.3.0.36U ,, downloaded everything just the same as my 11.2 "for my sister" and got hers running perfectly, now on my 11.3 i've finished the Guide, but theme manager and prboom Freeze, display green or sometimes red screens
    Mgba didnt work at first but i downloaded a CIA and files for it and that worked e.g it i can run it from a CIA.
    But inside the Homebrew laucher itself, it freezes with a red screen on the bottom and glitch on the top ...

    You could use a new SD card and then transfer the needed files over to your current SD when done. But no homebrew is going to interfere with the a9lh installation so I wouldn't worry.

    you can finish the guide while you wait for an answer , Then you can get .Cias to work "Tons of apps and Games in Cia format" Its just a shame those homebrew apps don't work.

    As long as you keep the 3ds Open while converting to 2.20 , the 3ds won't ever Brick "aka no bad things will happen".. Also the files for the homebrew stuff can be easily replaced with the fixed version once its out.

    Im just saying this since i also have this problem and everyhting works but those homebrew apps after finishing the guide.. nothing else is affected

    OK im now on this step:
    10. Update your device by going to System Settings, then “Other Settings”, then going all the way to the right and using “System Update”
    • Updates while using A9LH + Luma (what you have) are safe
    • The warning about never updating a New 3DS from 2.1.0 does not apply after restoring your NAND backup.
    • If this gives you an error, set your DNS settings to “auto”
    • If this still gives you an error and your NAND is below 9.2.0, follow 9.2.0 CTRTransfer
    Means that my 3ds is 11.4 after this?
    Some "specialist" in ineternet talk not to update even mith luma etc

    Also are steps like this necessary?

    Section VIII - CTRNAND Luma3DS
    even with translation i dont get what ctrnand luma3ds is *facepalm lol*

    If you complete the Guide, yes. You don't have to update if you don't want to. Only thing broken on 11.4 right now is NTR streaming which is N3DS only feature. ctr-httpwn got patched on 11.4. It really doesn't matter unless you stream.

    CTRNAND is the 3DS relevant portion of the NAND, system memory sort of like SSD or eMMC on a computer, for 3DS. You can copy the arm9loaderhax.bin to it to make it boot without the SD card inserted.

    I have the Solution, finally figure it out: To get Homebrew to work, Download 11.2.0-35U Payload and Rename it to 11.3.0-35U , Then go into hblauncherloader folder and place it over the 11.3 one, and do the same with the another copy of the 11.2 payload and rename it otherapp and place it on the root of the SD Card, After this everything works.
