    How to install HomemenuHax on O3DS and N3DS

    Notes: This method cannot currently run all homebrew. You need to already have a way of entry into homebrew for this.THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH CUSTOM THEMES.

    I didn't make this app.

    If you want the inverse of this (like auto booting to HBM), look here. (The inverse is by Steveice.)


    This is my first tutorial

    Okay, so to start off, we need to download the boot.3dsx file; this is the file used for the homebrew menu. You may choose to use the default boot file, found here, or a modified boot file like the homebrew launcher with the grid layout. Put this on the root of your SD card. (This should already be there if you have used homebrew before.)

    Next, we want to download this homebrew app. This is what will trigger the exploit upon startup if certain conditions are made. In this case, it is if the L button is pressed at startup. Put that folder after extraction into the 3DS folder.

    Now run the App from the 3DS homebrew exploit of your choice and then follow the on screen instructions from there.


    Now when you boot up your 3DS, press and hold L and the system should run the exploit!

    The boot. 3dsx file will run in the root.

    That's because he posted the original 1.0 version of HomeMenuHax in a dropbox, which isn't recommended. OP needs to have the Github release list since it updates. 1.2 came out and it can launch homebrew now.

    @TLOZmaster Here's the link. https://github.com/yellows8/3ds_homemenuhax/releases

    Wait, really? I may have just assumed you were on 1.0 because Smealum said that it didn't launch homebrew apps until yellows updated it to 1.2. What firmware are you on? I've had it and it works just fine for me on 9.9.0-26E

    I followed the instructions to a T. I'm running a New 3DS on 9.9.0-26 E, and I always seem to get this error when I attempt to install HomeMenuHax. Here's a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/xjHNk6M.jpg

    Try switching to an actual DLC theme on the home menu, then switching to no theme (Standard) then try again.

    Just don't forget that changing themes will uninstall the entry point, so you're going to have to deal with not having a theme if you want to use it.

    I'm using an EU 3ds to play USA games, I literally just need the region free capabilities. I'll boot to homebrew every time. That being said, is there any way to get it to auto load without having to hold L? Could I inverse it, as in, could I hold L to load the default home menu and have the 3DS auto boot to the homebrew menu?

    I doubt there is one currently, but if enough requests are made I am sure Yellows would do something like that.

    For the most part, yeah.

    Nevermind! There is one by @Steveice10 that can be found here! If any button is pressed, then it will load up regular menu. https://www.dropbox.com/s/76qmy5q1iph6bjq/themehax_installer.zip?dl=1
