    I'm actually happy with menuhax on my n3ds, but I was bored one evening and I decided to dump OTP, succesfully. I restored my sysnand backup and I'm now trying to decide what CFW I should choose, as I know there is AuReiNAND and CakesFW and soon Gateway, too.
    And menuhax loaded on my 3ds ctrbootmanager instead of hbl, so that would be nice If I could still use ctrbm, so I can decide what kind of cfw I want to start.
    As I know, there is no CFW out there that has EmuNAND, regionfree and integrated TWL/AGB_firm sig patch all in one. And of course I still want to use GW. What should I choose....?

    It would be so nice if CakesFW would have TWL/AGB patch and integrated/autoboot NTR ingame menu (which include regionfree), that would be the best all in one CFW and no other have to be used

    The latest AuReiNAND comes with region free. Not sure about TWL/AGB though.

    Try them and figure it out which best suits your needs.
    I have used Cakes, Reinand and AuReinand, they all the best!

    Wherever my imagination decides.
    Be it XDA or GBAtemp, this question will never die. "Which CFW is best?", "Which ROM is best?", "Which kernel is best?" etc etc.
    Take a look at the available options. (AuRei, Rei, Cakes and that Cosmos which is minimal^19, so you will never ever use or need Comos. You're in here for ~1 year now and you don't anything.

    I'd say AuReiNand to answer your question. It's minimal and has more features than the other CFWs that I actually use, but it is STILL minimal.

    Because I didn't care about A9HL untill now. You didn't want answer my question but you had enough time to criticize my question. Because of people like you gbatemp is getting more and more rude

    I wasn't rude. Let me rephrase. What are you doing on this forum? You got your menuhax-ed 3DS but when you come in here(which is 1 hour per day) wtf are you browsing? Don't you see anything new and want to search more info about it? Or do you say to yourself "oh they will explain it to me like they have done 100000 times before"? (same for this topic)

    Well I wanted to know about the features of a9lh cfw's. aureinand was easy to find, but not cakesfw. gbatemp search is not very good, google is even better.

    Yes you are rude. gbatemp<gbatemp - you

    Right now you have AuReiNand, ReiNand, CakesFW, Cosmo3D and Rxtools.

    - ReiNand is the official one (AuRei is a mod and more bleeding edge as it gets more updates than the official one. think of it like the Nightlies of a Cyanogenmod ROM). Works on N3DS, not sure if it supports O3DS yet but I heard it does now or will in the close future.
    - AuReiNand is the mod of ReiNand, has more features and is more noob friendly.
    - CakesFW works with patches called "cakes". It's not as used and as updated but in my opinion works best for me.
    - Cosmo3D is well, minimal. Can't say much about it since I haven't tried it.
    - RxTools... stay away from it at this point in time if you want A9LH.


    They all do the same function-wise and you can get things like region free on all of them if you search for ihaveamac's home menu patches on that iso site.

    So really, it's like choosing one blend of coffee. They all have caffeine which is what you want but some have some cinnamon, others chocolate on top. There's no supreme deluxe version of it :P

    wtf are you saying? Please stop posting. Your analogies and information(if you think AuReiNand is like a Nightly CyanogenMod) is wrong.
    I repeat, stop posting. Do it for the greater good.

    Saying that AuRei is like a nightly of ReiNAND is wrong. They're separate projects at this point.

    This misinformation will make more people confused. I know most people(90% of this community) know nothing, but I don't want to get reminded of that every day. It sucks. :C Makes you wonder how do they survive(seriously). xD

    Here, there and everywhere
    Depends on what you are trying to get out of your CFW. Just play 3DS titles then it doesn't matter.

    If you are trying to use updatedsysnand either AuReiNand or Cakes.

    If you are the user that wants to play with everything including the kitchen sink try RXTools

    In short they all do great things, so research what sets each apart and decide am I going to need/use this feature and if the answer is yes then use the one that has the feature set you desire. No wrong answer.

    It is not so bad as long as people giving out wrong information accepts that they're wrong and learn from it. The ones that do not are the hopeless ones.

    Thing is, they can't even CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and they want to post like they know everything.

    I get where you're coming from, but give the guy a break. He tried at least to give a informational answer. I mean look at his post. It's a big post compared to many out there, so you can tell he wasn't purposely trying to bs his way through it, but to give an answer with some substance if not necessarly the correct answer. I think we should leave the guy alone. He's been told he's wrong and I doubt he'll make the same mistake.

    I didn't mean to offend him and I like people that try to help others/this community in some way, but when you give information to others(and especially such 'sensitive' information considering everyone wants to know which CFW is the 'best'), you must have first validated them in some way. I don't go out there helping each member when they have a question if I'm not sure/haven't validated the info I got. I check the GitHub, I check tre respective threads and gather information. Today was my first time in ReiNand's thread but you hadn't seen me saying such stuff when my info on ReiNand is 0%....

    You don't go out there and keep posting. This is a community. If you don't know something, just ask. There's this noob paradise thread and/or ask in the respective threads/forums. People are always willing to help.

    tl;dr we should be more involved as we like what we do with our 3DS(hacking the sht out of it :P )

    YOUR QUESTION IS RUDE!! *idiot*:angry:

    When you give an opinion as to what you deem to be a better you put down the others. It's question that discourages, not encourages.

    @fr3quency the "what is the best ROM" really got to me XDDDD haha , so many posted that in XDA.

    and there were so many stickies that stated ' please do not create a thread asking for what is the best ' etc.

    so i understand your point, but you are maybe alittle bit harsh ..XD
    cause this is not XDA mun :)

    edit: i think some people either dont have the time, or .. are just too lazy to look into anything at all.

    that is the issue, but i think it is best to not frustrate yourself with these kind of questions.

    Yeah, I'm still influenced from that community, thus this 'attitude' of mine when I see such questions. The others don't understand, but you surely do :P (one xda member to another xD) I'm still working on this 'attitude'. :3

    don't worry, i have that type of 'attitude' as well but mostly only with people who i know of, like people i often talk to etc.

    to strangers i cannot really be in that 'attitude' cause i try to respect ..the.. strangers OvO cause.. i dont know the strangers.
    so i would only use that 'attitude' of mine when the stranger in some way offends me.

    then i would use my very very salty 'attitude' ! XD
