    Hey, I would need some help about how to install RxTools on my 3ds when i already have GW EmuNand on it.
    The reason being is that in order to play the fire emblem DLC you'll need another CFW other than Gateway, its a well know issue and people use RxTools as a alternative.
    I've found many guide on how to install RxTools but none mention anything about Gateway.
    I don't want to start installing things without knowing if any conflict may happen between them and such.
    Im using a 3DS XL(not the New 3ds one) with a sysnand fw of 4.5 and my GW emunand is on 9.4
    - thanks you very much for taking your time to read this.

    They use the same emunand so you shouldn't have any problems and many people have both gw and rxtools set up. Gw can actually make setting a cfw up easier as you don't need to inject fbi into health and safety, you can just run a .3ds of a cia installer instead.

    As you're on 4.5 I guess you'll probably have to switch between the rxtools and gw profile exploits when you want to use one or the other, unless there is another entrypoint rxtools can use on 4.5.

    So all i need to do is follow the guide to install RxTools then thats all? i can just use BigBlueMenu to install .cia game since its already installed on my GW emunand?

    I found quite a few but they all install it in a different way.
    Which one would you recommend for me since i already have a Emunand set up?

    OR if you have a better one i would be very thanksful if you could link me to it.
    Also note that i dont have fruitninjax or homebrew and all those kind of things on my 3ds just Emunand and BigblueMenu I would like to try and keep things as simple as possible.

    That first one looks good, and it even mentions gw:
    Don't follow the guide blindly though as there are probably steps you've completed already, like setting up emunand etc. Make sure you've got a least a basic understanding of what you're doing. From the looks of that guide you can use the browser for rxtools and mset for gw so you won't have to bother switching ds profile exploits to use one or the other.

    Do it from sysnand, I don't think it'll work in gw emunand.

    I'd set up tubehax dns on your sysnand too as you'll be going online with it, there's a section on that in the latest gw manual.

    Here it is:

    Yeah, you're right sorry. It doesn't mention tubehax but that's what those dns settings are for, I guess it's just one of the oversights in the current manual.

    Hey sorry for the late reply but after some time i managed to install RxTools on my 3ds by following the guide on the first link.
    All i had to do was the section 1 and 3 and everything worked out.
    To access RxTools i use the web browser and for GW the ds profile one.
    Thanks a lot Zelda for your help and been patient with me~
