Hello, newly downgraded users! Many have been wondering exactly why CFW won't work on their newly downgraded System. The solution is that you need to find payloads that support *hax2.5, as *hax 2.5 does not have official payloads ready for it as far as I know. IF YOU HAVE YET TO DOWNGRADE, HERE IS THE THREAD FOR THAT: http://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-the-simple-guide-to-downgrading-your-3ds.407888/ STEPS: 1)As soon as you downgrade, insert gateway's 3dsx loader into your "3ds" folder. 2)Back up your SD card, save it onto your computer, and load up Gateway Launcher from browserhax (if you don't have Cubic Ninja or OoT3D) and backup your NAND. 3)After it's done, place that somewhere safe onto your computer, then relaunch Gateway Launcher and 4)Format emuNAND. After this, your SD card will be fully wiped with an emunand hidden away inside it. 5)Place your SD card into your computer and put your SD card backup into it. 6)Next you will need to find a CFW configured for *hax 2.5. @Columbo2811 found these for me for you all to use. These are just the *hax 2.5 homebrew launcher files so you will need to go to their respective threads to get their tutorial and other files.
