    So you can access the home menu while you are using it, and you don't need to see those flashing lights

    because of the homebrew launcher payload, it is NEEDED to use the homebrew launcher to boot other services for other homebrews to call.

    Use lesshax payload if you don't like to see flashing colors.

    You can use the payload for any *hax entrypoint, if you rename it to match your firmware version.

    What is the name of the payload are you using?
    It is a .bin file with "payload" on it name.
    Give me this file name and I will upload lesshax payload for you.

    If you're going to update your entrypoint, why not switch to A9LH?

    It has many more benefits, including 100% boot rate and ability to unbrick SysNand for INCREASED STABILITY. Just note it takes 2-3 hours to do, and you can start by following Part 4-5 of Plailect's guide here: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-4-(Getting-the-OTP)

    Then no, you're still stuck with the .cia because HBL can't boot up properly until the operating system itself does, unless someone took the time to get around it from scratch (good luck!). By that point, you'd need to use menuhax, browserhax, or DS Profile to get in. The .cia relies on (relatively) the same exploit menu and browserhax use.

    Try this.
    Make a backup of original file and replace it with this file.
    Then rename boot.3dsx on root folder to less.3dsx

    actually I think it's hblauncher_loader rejecting the .bin file you gave me
    it goes through those flashing colours and boots into homebrew launcher like normal

    No, I'm using lesshax payload with hb_loader.cia.
    Firmware: 11.0.0-33 (U)
    It work fine.

    I gave him the (E) version.
    Did you extract the .zip file?
