    Hello, can i use one super smash bros cartridge (i downloaded update to it on another 3ds) to update my 4.3 3ds to 9.2 (my 4.3 already have a browser) and use themehax to boot my rxtools 2.6?

    Yes, you can. But it's strongly not recommended.

    Because Ninjhax 1.1 / GW & rxTools URL boot-up are unstable with unmatched firmware suffixes.
    For example, 9.2.0 should match -20 suffix.
    Every other suffix is unmatched.
    Cartridge update doesn't and never upgrade the suffix so it makes the thing unstable.

    (Edit)
    rxTools 2.6 doesn't support Themehax.
    You should change the rxTools into at least 3.0 beta Oct.02 version.

    I would recommend updating rxTools to the latest nightly first, then using DevMode (NOT SYSNAND) and sysupdater to update.
    Get the update pack for 9.2.0-20 from a certain website that has ISO files for the 3DS.

    This way, your browser will also update and you will not run into stability issues.
