    So I have Aureinand autobooting into a 10.7 emunand I set up on my n3ds. I installed the AGB Patched firm to the sysnand, and even went so far as to install my GBA games to both my sysnand and emunand. However, booting them gives me the "error has occured, please hold the power button" every single time. I have heard that I need to install the AGB firm to the emunand as well, but when trying to install to it via FBI, I get "error, invalid combination" even though I checked the emunand system titles for the agb firm, but it was not installed, so it wasn't an error of it not being installed.

    I used rxtools on my o3ds, and it worked beautifully. I just want to be able to play my gba titles on my emunand. However, I was under the impression that gba vc and nds loading was labeled as "WIP" for rxtools on a n3ds.

    I know a lot of you have dealt with this headache of a process, so perhaps might someone have some advice for me? I know how common these posts are, but searching and trying what I found has not helped thus far.

    What aureinand version do you use?
    The latest aureinand is capable to patch agb firm on the fly.
    If you install the patch agb firm with the latest one, it might cause some conflict, cmiiw.
    Try with devmenu, i too had similar error with fbi, but it works using it

    I just messed with this same issue, and it sounds to me like the CFW is not paching it/they don't have it patched. I installed a patched AGB_FIRM to my sysNAND and emuNAND while I was still on Rei before upgrading to AuRei and have no problems with it working. If someone is paranoid enough, back up emuNAND and then install the patched firmware, but I'd be willing to wager that as soon as the OP installs it to emuNAND (considering they've done everything else right by the looks of it) the problem will go away.

    As far as the issue of getting FBI to actually install the dang firmware, I didn't have that problem. It was DevMenu/BigBlueMenu that wouldn't do it for me, whereas FBI worked. I guess make sure you're using a newer *hax version (at least 2.6 maybe?) and also ensure your FBI is a new version as well.

    That could also be the reason, but OP's already installed the patched one, but it still doesn't work.
    The other day, i have the exact same issue while booting some gba game, with error message and told me to restart.
    The next day, it worked without any issue at all, and i haven't touched anything.
    Wait a minute, i still have 2.5 *hax with the lastest fbi (i think). Maybe it is indeed caused by *hax?

    It looks like, at least according to the post, the OP only installed the patched AGB_FIRM to sysNAND, not to it and emuNAND. As you implied, the patched firmware needs to be on both NANDs with that setup.

    As far as how *hax works, I'll freely admit that I'm not versed in the technical bits of it, I just ask questions and learn how to run it. But, based on what I do know (and someone knowledgable is more than welcome to correct me on this if I bork the explanation), the *hax basically is what allows a CFW or other tool like miniPasta or rxTools to patch the NAND, the *hax is merely a way in. But, newer versions of *hax allow for more things to be tampered with and provide more a more stable environment (that last part is based on my experience with me staying on 1.1b forever like a moron). So, yeah, updating your *hax payloads and the *hax methods themselves are usually good things to do, since it allows you to take advantage of the latest and greatest where CFW and homebrew/utilities are concerned.

    even when you get it workin. and you see yourself thrown to SysNand, dont freak its how AuReiNand handles it to prevent Save lost. (despite i'm on A9LH, i had the issue till i restored the stock TWL_FIRM & AGB_FIRM and grabed 5.1.2 of AuReiNand) one person mentioned in the AuReiNand thread, that thier issue wasnt solved till they re-did thier SD Card.
