    yeah, you can just turn it off or exit using home and try again.

    in case the installer just won't work you can also try a factory reset on the 3ds.

    before doing a factory reset, just change your profile name to something else.
    It'll wipe off all traces of the exploit.

    After that, just trying reinstalling.

    Good luck!

    Sometimes the install process is stuck and everytime it gets stuck, I just rename my profile name to something else, and the installation is finishes successfully.

    Everytime you enter DS mode, the exploit in "unloaded". Let's say you run a DS flashcard (like SCDS2, or any other DS R4 like) or any DS game (like NSMB). So you need to "load" (aka, install) the gateway "exploit" again.

    Well, back when I was toying around with the alternate ROP launcher I managed to mess up my profile settings/NVRAM so good that I had to do a factory reset. But you are right, it's better to try the less drastic measures first.

    You have to rerun the exploit installer everytime you run a DS mode cartridge (flashcart or retail), as the 3DS notices then that the profile settings are "broken" and fixes them. It does work from every DS mode flashcart you can run on your 3DS.

    The installer just sometimes bugs out, which will not lead to lasting problems. (IIRC it's the same installer since 1.2, but as those seldom freezes have no real impact they never went and fixed it.)
