    I'll start this off then d:

    I was able to use FBI Injection on a 4.2 USA O3DS XL and launch the FBI H&S app on sysnand if I boot into sysnand by holding X while rxTools boots. Then I can play some gba games if I boot DevMode. Took only like 5 minutes.

    However, I have a friend with the same setup as me (both downgraded from 9.2), except that he is on 4.5 due to upgrading his sysnand so he can still play ACNL on sysnand. For some reason, FBI Injection says it worked, but when he boots into sysnand by holding X, the H&S app still boots into...the H&S app. We tried many times using many different rxtools.dat launchers (the different official versions up to 2.5.2 and even Chelsea_fantasy's mod)

    TLDR - The only differences between our setups is:
    1. I boot gateway on MSET and rxtools through browser, whereas he just uses rxtools on MSET
    2. I am on 4.2, and he is on 4.5 (Animal Crossing cart update)

    Help?

    First thing I have to say to you is that the new rxtools 2.5 has disabled signature patches and can install FBI onto h&s without much work.

    I'm not really an expert on these things but I don't think it has much to do with different booting methods. The injection could be faulty.
    Was your friend on 9.8 emunand before he attempted to inject? Also did he inject the correct region files?
    There are just a lot of things which could have gone wrong. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    Edit: nvm, I just read yours again and realised you're trying to use it on sysnand. My bad :P

    Same issue. I can install and launch H&S(FBI) trought sysnand.( Booting rxtool while holding X) i tried to install a cia and it work.

    But i tried to install the H&S(FBI) on emunand, it says me it's ok. But impossible to launch H&S(FBI) it's just the normal H&S app.

    My setup is 4.5 EUR O3DSXL ( downgraded from gateway) + 9.8 EUR emunand

    Orz. I've finally boot my console with latest one compiled minutes ago.
    However the screen in emunand have some blank titles (which is black icon with white border).
    If opened the 3DS loops with the "Nintendo 3DS" logo.. And home key deactivated. Quite amusing..
    If i run those, then power down, and into rxmode again, one weird box disappear.
    ^_^ then again it would appear, as a gift box.. WOW. It could be unwrapped again, orz.
    Hope someone could find a way to solve this weird problem.

    Mine is JAP O3DS, Sysnand 4.1, Emunand 9.8. Mset.
    Region free? I've only tried one EUR through devmenu, which is long ago.

    OK I know why that is now.
    It is cause there is still title installed inside NAND. Titles count told me that.
    on that sig-patched 2.4, the title just doesn't pop up. FBI install fails when doing so on Emunand..
    i would launch FBI and delete those titles from NAND, about the latest ones in the list.

    NOTE: If you see weird boxes (wrapped is black icon with white border, unwrapped ones have no names) just get your FBI to uninstall some user installed titles on your Emunand! See those around the end of your list. This is cause the 2.4 just doesn't show those corrupted titles.
    Sorry i've mistaken it. You can install devmenu and use that. Remove other titles on your SD.

    Also feel free to attach this info on the OP.

    try to install and play gba games

    have do this :

    X+A = sysnand with sig patched = FBI on H&S works, use this to install other cia managers , and have install devmenu in my sysnand

    devmode = AGB/TWL with sig patched = only FBI on H&S don't work, but other CIA managers will work, so be sure to install them again first before booting to devmode
    in devmode have install cia agb-firm patch and a game

    but game dont appear in menu screen

    can only launch game with devmenu , but when i want exit game , console freeze .

    what i miss

    have a old 3DS in 4.5 , RX 2.5.2 , emunand 9.8

    thanks

    If you installed the gaems in emuNAND first, you need then to extract emuNAND ticket.db and then inject it to sysNAND.
    Then your games should appear now.

    same here but I'm US o3ds + 4.2 emuNAND/9.8 emuNAND, both of the emuNANDs didn't get FBI installed even though rxtools said it was successful.

    if you inject FBI H&S and it just launch the normal H&S app you have to reinstall H&S of your region and version... but that only works if you have a working cia manager... I think the problem is the fbi_inject.app since it was specifically made for 9.X emunand and not 4.X

    the best way is update your emunand before injecting the fbi_inject.app

    Hey what i need to do to get Rxtools emuNAND with the latest version (without system configuration update; i know i can use save data filer for the saves but i dont know how to use or if i can just enter on a Folder where is Going to be all the saves of the console; the other thing is i dont want to screw my console updating badly the sysNAND or something like that
    I know a app call sysUpdater (i know is supposed to be a update out from Nintendo, i guess), but is the same case as save data filer.
    NOW my 3ds are on sysNAND 4.2 (downgraded from a v6.2) with rednand with titlemanager and a bunch of CIAS/Games Installed.

    Just got Rxtools setup with emunand 9.8, I'm celebrating right now!
    My question is, can emunand play cartridges too? Aside from the long cia installation, Rxtools is PERFECT! I can literally turn any 9.2 or below O3DS into an Rxtools 3DS just like that.

    Also, for GBA support is it better to setup CakesFW or just use Rxtools?

    Yes, it can play cartdriges too, but is highly recommended to use a Sysnand above 7.X for cart save encryption issues, like Pokémon.

    GBA support is fine for both versions, the advantage that Cakes has right now is that you can select the patches before emuNAND loads, and rxtools needs to run in dev mode trough sysnand.

    I installed Rxtools on my 3ds Xl and the titles I had installed are no longer recognized. Do I just redownload them from the eshop?

    I mean playing carts from emunand. It seems like it does since I launched cubic Ninja from emunand. I have sysnand 9.0 and emunand 9.8 for my setup.

    Would you suggest CakesFW for GBA games over Rxtools? Or does Rxtools MOD Switcher make it easier?
    Either way, I'll have to get them installed on sysnand and emunand since my nands are unlinked.

    What do I do after I set up the mset exploit? Going into ds profile always just crashes, never boots rxtools. Is there another file I need besides rxtools.dat?

    Can you region swap the Emunand partition easily with RxTools 2.5? If so how?

    Both do the same, I assume you want a friendly and more reliable method, so use the switcher MOD if don't wanna touch your sysnand AGB firmware.
