    hmm seems like upgrading to 10.3 then downgrading and installing rxtools/cfw would be easier. I have 2 3ds i already downgraded and installed rxtools and cfw on but this one is on a exploitable firmware already so the process is different how would i even install menuhax without themes?

    wanna do this quick before i dont even have the chance to upgrade to 10.3 anymore incase i screw up

    You can't install menuhax on 8.1, but you can use the browser entry point to install CFW. It's what I did when I was on 7 point something. You can use the tutorial that Woody8275 linked.

    Try these steps:

    1. Open browser settings and clear cookies, reset savedata.
    2. Close browser and turn off wifi.
    3. Hit L + R to open camera, tap the QR button, and scan the code here. Let it load the browser and it will say connection error.
    4. Hit home, turn on wifi, and open browser again. Should load a webpage. Zoom in close and look in the top left and there will be a slider bar. Tap it on the far right end.

    If it doesn't work, reboot and repeat all the steps. It can be tricky on old3ds.

    I was helping my brother and I think he kept having the same issue. Just had to keep trying. I saw somewhere someone suggested to spam A as its loading the exploit but I dunno if that actually helps. Could try recopying the boot.3dsx back onto the SD. May have got corrupted somehow.

    Browserhax and Menuhax work in firmwares 9.0 and above, 8.1 is not compatible.

    You have to launch rxTools from the web browser, boot Dev Mode/Pasta, install sysupdater and update to 9.2

    Since browserhax, menuhax and Ironhax doesn't work in 8.1, to get the homebrew launcher you need either Cubic Ninja, Ocarina of Time 3D.

    If you want free FBI use FBI INJECTION.
