    Okay so I unlinked my sysNAND and emuNAND. Installed homebrew from the cia file on my emuNAND. When I loaded it and installed a custom theme it showed up on my emuNAND until I restarted the 3DS. Then it showed up on my sysNAND but I couldn't go into homebrew again and the theme wasn't in emuNAND when I re-loaded. That must mean something is going on with the homebrew usage. Could someone help me out on how to use the two seperate homebrews? Will my emuNAND version affect it as well? 10.7? Do I need to install menuhax on emuNAND?

    You formatted sysnand to unlink the nands, now your next step is to setup menuhax. You must boot browserhax to get into HLB on sysnand, and use menuhax manager.
    Once you install menuhax, you should install CTR boot manager. You can then list both HBL, and the CFW you want to use. This enables you to skip right over sysnand easily and get right into emunand.

    NEVER install menuhax on emunand!

    You can use CHMM as a .cia installed on emunand, where you can freely set custom themes. You must use DSP firmware dumper one time before you can use it though.

    Thank you for this. Okay I have to re-format again because I've gotten the unwrap glitch again. SO after I do menuhax once again, I install CTR boot manager. What do you mean by listing both HBLs? As in changing their extension on my sd card? Also thank you for the information on the CHMM.cia. Might give that a go.

    Yep feel free to format sysnand again if you're unsure about it. But then be sure to change the theme one time, before installing menuhax (It installs in theme data)

    I meant that in CTR boot manager's list, you can add an option for CFW such as ReiNand, and another option for HBL. When your 3DS boots up, you'll be presented with this list where you can choose any option you need. By default, CTR boot manager comes with ReiNand and HBL on the list. You just need to replace boot.3dsx with ctr boot manager's.

    Edit: Once you install menuhax, go to "Configure / haxx trigger" and choose type 1. Tap the touch screen and you're done. NOW your 3DS will autoboot menuhax with no buttons pressed. This is done through menuhax manager of course.

    Thank you once again. I re-installed menuhax after formatting. For CTR Boot Manager, how would I set this up? I'm looking at the gist of it. Have menuhax installed but do I just put the boot.cfg on my root of the sd card or do I need something else? Going off of the original post instructions. Also says to edit boot.cfg to suit your needs.

    You'd just put boot.cfg and boot.3dsx on your SD card, say yes to replace the boot.3dsx.
    Once you get menuhax installed, and setup as type 1 with no buttons, your 3DS should autoboot into CTR boot manager every time.
    (Changing a theme in sysnand kills menuhax)

    You can edit the boot.cfg file to add/change the options that appear on the list. If you use ReiNand, that one is already on there by default. It looks for ReiNand.dat on the root of the SD. CTR boot manager will be your new way of getting into ReiNand from now on, much easier than browserhax for instance.

    Edit: Rxtools seems to also be included on the list by default. I recommend rxTools for it's built in region free. You really should have no need to change the boot.cfg though.

    I have the boot.cfg file but I didn't get another boot.3DSx file. Got the download from github but I only got the boot.cfg from there. I have type 1 setup with no buttons (thanks for telling me that because I usually just go with the R button to load it)

    Oh you use Gateway, in that case edit out something like ReiNand in the boot.cfg, rename it Gateway. And make the path as:
    "/3ds/GW/GW.3dsx";

    Then just be sure to have that on your SD card, from the Gateway release package.

    Note: Opening boot.cfg in notepad on windows results in everything being displayed in a jumbled mess. Try wordpad or something else. It should be displayed straight down.

    I cannot thank you enough. So a few more questions. One, would I edit the boot.cfg to make that change? Two, after I do that then how would the two be separated as far as sysnand and emunand? Selecting it from the CRT menu would register the differences, if I'm correct (as you explained above if I understood correctly)?

    When you turn on your 3DS, it auto boots menuhax + CTR boot manager. Whatever you choose from this menu, it will boot into it. Like for example, if you chose Gateway, if will boot Gateway emunand.

    So yep just edit that line into the boot.cfg, as I said before you should edit it over something like ReiNand. Change the name, and the path. And delete the offset line since it isn't needed.

    title = "Gateway"
    Path = "/3ds/GW/GW.3dsx":

    Don't copy and paste this, but that's how it should look

    Done it. Worked perfectly. Thank you for all your help. So I can install the HBL.cia and be able to use that from my emunand there as well (as well as installing the theme manager cia)?

    Eh don't use HB_Launcher loader cia. If you need homebrew launcher (I doubt you would), use it from CTR boot manager only. You can pretty much get a homebrew cia for pretty much everything on emunand.

    Don't forget to get DSP firmware dumper: http://rinnegatamante.it/site/3ds_hbs.html
    And run it just once. This will allow you to run CHMM from then on. Also, set a theme in emunand to be sure you have theme data.
