    Hi

    Im sorry to post what is probably (or maybe not) a bunch of repeated questions. But in these times of several releases is kinda normal that all the info about every hack aint exactly organized and easily accessible

    without further ado

    SYSTEM:
    3DS XL
    10.3


    1) I have IronHax. I can get into Homebrew Launcher at anytime> I run the MenuHax application. It says ive installed successfully. I reboot the system holding L and no, it dosent work.

    1.1) Yes, in the menuhax installer ive run the third option, the one that map the HBL to a button, and chose "L". Yet it dosent work. What am i missing

    2) Im trying to make sense of the HBL the same way as after several years i got to make sense of the Homebrew Channel

    2.1) So for an app to show up at the HBL i need to create a subfolder inside the 3DS folder.
    IN this subfolder i need to put a .3dsx and a .smdh file. Is that it?


    3) I see everybody talking about "downgrade". Why is everybody trying to downgrade if you can access HBL on latest firmware?

    4) Ive put some custom themes in my 3ds... i can change em with the HBL app, but they all stuck with the Star Wars BGM. Can somebody help?


    SYSTEM:
    3DS XL
    10.1


    1) What is the best way for me to "hack" this one? It dosent have an old Ironfall

    3) kernel expolit

    Nice. Thanks

    What is a Kernel Exploit? Why is it better than the usual HBL?

    kernel exploit have COMPLETE control over the system and can do A LOT of things that the actual exploit can't do.
