Are you making sure to plunder the DLC as well? you should
Also, remember that if the game you acquired matches your console region you can update like you would with a legit game
Emulators and Virtual Conolse are on another 4GB Emunand, this one is a 64GB SD card (59 actually, thanks jews)
I get all of mine from 3dsisos, the mega-link-threads are the least awful
i really wish there was another way to get cias without having to wade through those shitty forums and use mega, though
can someone relink the smash dlc .cia the anon posted yesterday?
also has anyone actually tried playing online? all of my stuff is up to date and my emunand is on 10.3 but i haven't tried to play a game online yet
The CIA isn't the issue, the DLC itself is. You need NTR and a handful of plugin files to basically trick the game and DLC into thinking they're on a JP 3DS so the DLC actually registers because you can't get Japanese region DLC on any other region 3DS
>reformat emunand instead of sysnand, because why not, I only need them unlinked
>legitimate games vanish off of sysnand for some reason
Yeah, that happens and it fucks everything up. Unless you used something like SaveDataFiler to back up the data, you've lost all your saves too. I know from experience, painful, painful experience
>tfw 9.2 n3ds on 9.5 emunand

I have a demanding job, I have to wait until saturday before going through all of these steps. I have a yuro new 3DS XL at 10.3, could any of you neets let me know am I in for a hard time?
Any of you guys found a via file for monster hunter X yet?
I honestly don't care for pirating but I really want to just play that game until I can buy MHXU or what ever the NA release is called
The general answer to the FBI problems is opening eshop.
Also, I have an o3ds so I could just update and go, if you have a n3ds you will probably need to use sysupdater or so to get it to 9.5.
Please sponefeed me I'm retarded how do I transfer my sysnand from on SD to another? I need more space for emunand.
>Taiko no Tatsujin DLC won't install
>no extra weeb music and Let it Go
FUCK THIS GAY EARTH
Well guys, I'm just fucking done. I can't load anything from ctrbootmanager. Not rxTools, and not even menuhax. Every time I try, my N3DS just freezes. I don't know what to do anymore.
The issue is this: I can easily use reboot to launch RXTools but it requires online. Menuhax can be offline but in order to launch RXTools I need the boot.3dsx file to lead to a different program to the homebrew launcher and I can't use CHMM without launching the homebrew launcher but I need to launch it in Emunand because if I change themes in the SysNand then I lose menuhax
So I managed to downgrade successfully to 9.2 from 10.3
Can I use a bigger SD Card or am I stuck with the 8GB I used to downgrade?
And what's the max size, my cousin gave me a 128gb microsd card ages ago, can I use that?
Does this shit work on this particular 3DS? I need to know!
What version of rxTools are you using, what is your menuhax launch bindings?
Was it previously working?
Curious, does it do the following:
Show the Menuhax theme, bottom screen blink red, show rxtools loader, then menuhax, then the screen goes red and hangs on red?
Assuming you're using a newer version of rxtools (not sure if 2.6 works with ctrbootmanager) make sure that, whatever button or input you're pressing to load menuhax (including not pressing anything at all) is NOT being pressed (or is, if menuhax is always set to open instead of sysnand) after it gets past the "Menuhax' screen (or whatever it says, I forget).
So if menuhax always opens unless you press a button, then it'll freeze when turning on as when rxtools tries to launch it'll reboot and end up going back to menuhax (as no button is being pressed) and then crash. I'm using type 0 config for menuhax (so the default L button on launch) and then i have to let go after seeing the menuhax launcher screen, otherwise it'll crash after ctr boot manager tries to run rxtools.
Your old eshop account can work, but you may have to do some shit if you get error 022-2634.(backup emunand, format emunand with TinyFormat, connect NNID on new emunand, reinject emunand)

Downgraded for Monster Hunter X english (Which I imported) and Fire Emblem Fates which I will buy both games when they're not censored.
I tend to not play games when I pirate and therefore I rather buy them. I also want to support them devs.
Tried it on several .cias and I had to get into FBI but going though the file browser (Purple one) I can get into the Rxtools menu and when I install FBI it says Completed Region: Europe

Nintendo has literally no way to tell if you're using a pirated cia or a legit e-shop game.
They're fucking retarded when it comes to this shit. They can only detect .3ds roms but even those can be patched to look legit.
Nobody will get banned from this
The top is a little outdated, but fuck did it guide me through getting the CFW and FBI injection shit.
Not that guy but would you recommend someone to grab a N3ds if they already own the old version?
Due to this downgrade stuff im thinking of buying one and having to update the old one to keep as a legit console seems like a good idea...
different anon here
how do you do the reinject emunand part of that?
I've formatted already and once I found out I had no clue how to do that I just linked my NNID and re-installed my CIAs from scratch
>mfw I only downgraded for region free 3DS+updates+DLC
I use rxtools and yes I did inject it. It works every time on emunand.
Sorry, I'm not familiar with the new hacks. My 3DS has been on 9.2 since it was release and I set up my emunand then. I still use the same browser hack to access emunand on every reboot (which is only when I backup or add new files anyway). What do you mean file browser? If you run the fbi install in the rx menu, does it give you any info like v2051 or v50 or something?
Any recommendations for e-shop´games to fill the space left on my card?
So far I got
> Some 2D game I forgot the name but includes MN9 as a DLC character
> That's it I think
Unlink sysnand and emunand.
Can be done by formatting one or the other (I formatted sysnand because I intend to solely boot from emunand).
Keep in mind you'll have to reinstall menuhax and all that most likely after doing so.
Not everyone unliks their emunand and sysnand, but it's recommended, as if they're still linked some bullshit can happen (wiping games you don't own by accessing data management on sysnand, the unwrapping presents bug, updates down to emunand inexplicitly affecting sysnand and fucking everything up, etc.)
What version of rxTools are you using?
For me, it's hold L and then immediately release it as soon as I see the menuhax screen or whatever it is at the start.
And then yeah, CTR boot will kick in and either display your options or immediately launch into the first thing (rxtools) if you've set timeout to 0 in the config. That's on rxtools 3 though, I couldn't get it working on rxtools 2.6.
Use emuNAND tool 1.0.3. Grab it off filetrip.
I'd recommend recreating a NAND backup using that as well, regardless of whether you've got one you made earlier. It's basically just open program, have microSD or SD in the computer, and click 'backup emunand' or alternatively 'inject emunand' and select the nand you've backed up.
Hope some of that helps
>And what's the max size, my cousin gave me a 128gb microsd card ages ago, can I use that?
Probably. Just make sure you format it as FAT32. I think cluster size needs to be set at 32KB too. You'll need a tool to do this, Windows won't let you.
yeah easily, the biggest one i got was bravely default at like 3.2.

>How to proceed to eshop?
Sorry man, not exactly sure what you're asking by that.
I chose not to use 2.6 because it didn't work with CTR Boot Manager for me. The file structure for 2.6 is different to 3 and the default CTR Boot Manager configuration for rxtools is designed to open 3, not 2.6.
You might be able to change it to the correct file path via the boot.cfg in your root, but I'm not 100% sure if it'll work as expected afterwards. You can always try, I suppose.
Pretty good anon, those are good games. Have fun.
>mfw tempted to set a custom made cia title as my favorite game on my friends list

I have the etrian 2 fafnir.cia from USA and a .cia with all the dlc
but I'm on a euro n3dsxl with rx+emunand 9.5
>mfw I've set FBI as my favorite title
So if I'm sitting on o3ds latest update with browser/iron/menuhax do I need to rush to downgrade? Will the downgrade hack get safer if I wait? It looks like if I unlink the emunand and sysnand I'll need to reapply the browser,etc hacks, so do I need to do that before Nintendo updates the fw?
>What version of rxTools are you using
>what is your menuhax launch bindings?
I have menuhax set to type 2 so it automatically launches. I have it set to launch sysnand by holding L
Was it previously working?
Yes. I got into rxTools on my first try with no problems, however, now rxTools either freezes before it can boot, or it boots, but crashes to a black screen immediately.
Earlier last year I got cubic ninja ninjhax and a gateway card and set up emunand and got some games. Should I upgrade to an actual cfw like rxtools or ntr? Are there any benefits?
That's strange. I'm assuming you're letting go of L after getting past the initial loading of menuhax?
As for rxTools, have you been able to get into it via using the browser since the first try? Just curious
Being the dumbass that I am, I decided to format the emuNand instead of sysNand to unlink the two, thinking I wouldn't lose anything on my sysNand.
Ends up I deleted all of my saves on both nands for my purchased games. Whoop de doo. Is there anything I can do, or am I fucked? The guide I was following did tell me to make a backup of the sd card, but copying the Nintendo 3DS folder back to the sd didn't seem to achieve anything.
spoonfeed me where do I go and what do I do for free vidya
So I've installed all this shit and now am able to start rxtools, but whenever I try to get to emunand or sysnand it just gives me a black screen. And frankly I'm not sure what to do if I can even get there, I have to install gateway launcher or something, is that right?
Did you make a backup of your emuNAND earlier, as recommended in the guide? (The thing you made via the Gateway browser thing)
If so, reinject it using emuNAND Tool and you'll be back in bizniz. Probably?
So basically, I can get any game and dlc for free?
It's all good. I appreciate you anyway, anon.
I don't think you can exactly how I have it since I'm using rxtools 2.6. I believe that 3.0 is required for the boot thingy.
post THAT Mega link with a vast list pf games to doenload
Disregard. I got your email, but I can't reply using throwaway.
FOLLOW http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 TO DOWNGRADE O3DS/N3DS. MAKE DAMN SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE CORRECT FIRMWARE FROM THE MEGA LINK FOR YOUR SYSTEM.
IF YOU HAVE A US-REGION CONSOLE:
OLD 3DS: 9.2.0-20U(Full).zip
NEW 3DS: 9.2.0-20U(Full)_n3DS.zip
You are fucked.
You may, MAY just have a chance of recovering manual backups (if you have any) if you copy the right backup folder to the right location. It's too much of a hassle to explain, figure it out on your own :^). It's named "backup" and it's in one of those long name folders inside the Nintendo 3ds folder. If it isn't there, you never made a manual backup.
Most (all?) games will call bullshit and delete it, but hey, worth a try, right? :^)
First of all , you'll need to have NTR CFW 3.0,download both ntr.bin and bootntr.cia
Laziness Version - doesn't need to press HOME - Source
Download "BootNTR.cia" and the NTR zip (NTR.3.2.zip)
Download the language emulation plugin
place the plugin folder in the root of the sd card
go to http://3dsdb.com/
find title id
create folder with title id in your plugin folder
put in langemu us file in folder
as long as the game is updated
Thank you going to do so now
Once downgrade is successful, I follow that rxtool thing correct? This is where I get confused if I want to play downloaded tgames dlc etc I need cfw? Thanks again
It's cool man.
Use emuNAND tool 1.0.3. Assuming you've got your SD/MicroSD plugged into the computer, pop open the program, click Inject nand, and then click on your emunand backup and then bam, you're cooking with gas baby.
If you have a NEW 3DS:
If you have an OLD 3DS (Fuck this it's so convoluted):
Come on, it's not that important to double check
my pc doesn't have a micro SD port, can i do all this through ftbrony?
That won't conflict with me having FMP, right? Can I run both FMP and NTR?
And I run NTR everytime I plan on playing Etrian?
Is there a site that shows whether a game has had an update or what the current version is?
Thank you by the way
I did this and it worked, I've also made sure the proper FBIs are injected too but unfortunately, Trying to boot enumand just causes it to loop back into menuhax/CTRbootmenu which then causes me to red screen if i try to open rxTools again.
>mfw I don't have a big enough memory card to install all the games I want
I have a 8 gig and doing miracles with it while I buy a 32. What kills me is the whole needing double the space of the selected game to install, so no titininja...
I guess, but it will takes ages to move stuff. You should just get a microsd reader / adapter / whatever
>installing a firmware that prevents you from using pirated games
The easiest way to swap sd cards is to set up a new emunand on the new sd card then just copy the files over and backup the old emunand on the old card and restore that backup to the new card.
Only what I have so far.
>was scared that the online wouldnt work right
>played Kid Icarus online just fine
This is great.
But really, 16gb cards arent enough for this.
btw how do I install themes?
SO NOW THAT I'VE DOWNGRADED TO 9.2.0 ON O3DS....
I've heard that Pasta CFW is shit, and I should use rxtools instead. Is this https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/ the definitive guide?
How about explaining your problem like a smart person? You idiots don't only want to be spoonfed, you want us to coach you through 3 hours of explaining to us what you are even having trouble with.
Did you even install a patched AGB firm yet? It needs to be installed on both emunand and sysnand. Happy bricking.
IF YOU HAVE A NEW 3DS (N3DS), AND HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT YOU ARE DOING, I WILL HELP YOU FIX YOUR SHIT TOMORROW. EMAIL ME A WAY TO CONTACT YOU (STEAM/SKYPE/DISCORD/TELEGRAM, ETC) AND I WILL ADD YOU TOMORROW.
EMAIL ME AT email@example.com
I went with this. Very straight forward and leaves little to wonder. Follow this to the point and you will have a separated SYS/EMUNAND which automatically boots to RX-Emunand which can be updated if needed
Hey hey yo familia Thanks for the help nigga
REAL QUICK though
If I fucking grab a n3ds and nintendo patches the shit this week or next it wont matter if the n3ds is at 10.3 or below I can always just install homebrew with browser, cubic or ocarina right
That question goes for anyone lurking that knows
Well, I've somehow managed to get past my previous problems. I'm now able to hold L while rxTools boots from ctrbootmanager to bring me to the rxTools main menu (where you can adjust settings, view credits, and inject things). The problem now is that when I try to boot into emunand, I get a totally blank, black screen, even when holding L so menuhax won't launch.
Create a new emunand on your new sd card, then back up your old sdcard using the emunand tool for the emunand and then restore your backup to the new sdcard, injecting your emunand backup and overwriting the new nintendo folder.
>Install theme on emunand
>Turns it off and on to boot my rxtools
>the menuhax is kill somehow in sysnand
Wait, what? What is this shit?
I use menuhax to boot into rxTools. I heard something about installing themes fucking up with menuhax, anyone got any more info? I'd like to use a nice theme but I haven't downloaded any for fear it may fuck up menuhax
Just wanted to say I LOVE YOU FUCKERS. God damn this shit took me like 8 hours straight, but thanks to you guys' help I finally got game installed.
Fuck, I'm sorry to hear that man. I thought that might have worked, assuming you'd also copied over your Nintendo 3DS SD card backup shit from pre-formatting.
No problem, but wish it would've fixed your problem. Hopefully you didn't lose thousands of hours and most of your saves weren't on digital games and are safely on their cartridges
but I'm guessing that's probably absolutely not the case.
I just did this myself, just change your theme on sysnand, run browserhax, install menuhax, you are right back where you started. Now, download the homebrew launcher .cia , install it via FBI, then run it, should work, install theme through there. Basically until you boot emuNAND, it doesn't exist so it will naturally install on sysnand.
Wow so what are the options when that shit happens when I buy a n3ds, cubicninja and ocarina carts to install homebrew and downgrade?
FUCK i hope they dont patch the shit by friday
Menuhax works based on code in your theme. To change it, go into Menuhax Manager while you're booted into emuNAND, then one option says to install a custom theme and another says to setup a stock theme. Do one of those.
Also do >>323015393 if you haven't yet.
took me three days total from A to Z. There needs to be a guide for each fucking CFW and hax method. A bunch of these guides mix in all of the options confusing the fuck out of people.
I think rxtools cfw does the job.
This is seriously the worst shit. I'm honestly not sure if I'm being trolled or not.
sysUpdater used to boot, and then it would give me the "Can't find .cia" bullshit.
Now it won't even boot. Like 30 times in a row, just a fucking black screen.
What the fuck.
>he bricked his 3DS trying to downgrade
What are your other means of contact that isnt steam in case I may need further assistance(Which I hope wont be necessary)
This is the guy you helped just earlier, thanks again. Im reading through the forum and Im starting to understand a bit.
Look up TinyFormat, or read the section of the guide in /hbg/.
Just start your CFW you retard.
If you're not installing on emuNAND, do that.
Try replacing your .cia files.
>Typical salty fag who thinks that every pirate is poor
Good goy, keep buying games!
this shit is fucking confusing
what are the odds a retard proof 12 step system will be introduced soon?
right now I could probably have more success hacking the international bank than setting this shit up
Nah, I didn't have that many digital games actually, but still. I guess I have a good reason to replay some of them now, though. Not to mention a reason to finally stop playing those stupid free-to-play Pokemon games.
Should I bother updating my emunand if I can only go to 9.5? I haven't found any real reason to so far.
>turn on wifi
>works first try
Yes, I know... but there's risk to brick my 3DS and I have a really bad luck.
>go into other options and inject FBI to emunand.
The only options in other options are
>downgrade MSET on sysnand
>install FBI over H&S app
>restore original H&S app
I go with the second option, yeah?
Usually around 20 seconds to a minute, and I can't even launch rxTools from the sysnand browser. I know that rxTools doesn't work on N3DS if the emunand is a higher FW than 9.5. Embarrassingly enough, I stupidly tried updating in emunand when I got rxTools working on the first time. I assume the problem is most likely that my emunand is 10.3. So yeah, fucking stupid me.
coming from someone that one-shot everything, you're not wrong. you'll have people calling you an idiot for not being able to understand it, but the truth is, the guides and information are vague as fuck, and leave out key information.
some guides(older) were not clear about where certain files should go(root, folder, etc) telling people to delete payloads without explaining which files are payload was another mistake. some guides have all the basic steps to getting shit setup, but forgot to mention other quality of life changes a user might want. and one just says "unlink NAND" but never explained how to do it. I had to find information on gbatemp to learn how, which wasn't that difficult to do but still troublesome for those that want a simple step-by-step guide.
I'm thankful for everything the community has done in making all this shit work, but a spoonfeed guide is very much needed.
Yes. It then prompts you where to inject it to. Inject to emunand. Then when you go into H&S on your emunand it will boot FBI. I recommend installing BigBlueMenu through FBI and using that to actually install games, it's been more stable in my experience.
I'd home brew the new one for the better processing and keep your legit on the original.
In my opinion the n3ds XL is much better than the 3dsxl.
3ds to n3ds I'm not sure, as I never own one but only played one for a bit.
>Not to mention a reason to finally stop playing those stupid free-to-play Pokemon games.
Yeah that's probably for the best.
How are they anyway? Never thought to try them for obvious reasons.
What vidya do you intend to play/download anon?
That sucks anon, but at least you seem to know what the issue is.
I'm not 100% sure, but I'm assuming you can just recreate a fresh emunand via the Gateway thing in the same way you did it at the start(?)
They can't patch shit without your consent. The browser is already setup so it won't work if nintendo raises the flag that a new update is available. You can wait as long as you like if you already have an entry point other than browserhax.
I'm not denying that I gave up instantly but when one guide links you to another guide which links you to 3 downloads and 5 setups and you don't know what the fuck any of it means you kinda give up.
There isn't much I want to play left anyway so I'm not missing out on much.
>tfw L button is broken and works maybe 1/200 pushes
fuck I'm so tired. At least I managed to get it on 9.2 before the rumored update. How much is a cubic ninja copy go for at gamestop? I hate dealing with this whenever i need to open homebrew
Only the truly retarded can brick their o3ds, and I haven't heard of a single n3ds brick that wasn't caused by retardation either since the first update to sysupdater. Just make sure you grab the right files and you are set.
Not sure, but if Nintendo updated the firmware the only problem would be that you wouldn't get a second chance at downgrading as if the first try fails you'd have to upgrade your system back to the current firmware, and the process wouldn't work on 1.4. As long as it's 10.3 though if you own cn/oot you don't have to install browserhax so you have no need to worry about Nintendo eventually patching the browser

I just installed rxTools and two wrapped gifts appeared.
One was a black square, no title and the other was FBI something.
I opened the black square one and since it seemed to take forever loading, I turned off my 3ds and rebooted. It wasn't there.
I restarted and pressed L to go to the homebrew, and now it's stuck on the booting rxTools screen.
Did I fuck up?
The flowchar frequently posted in threads works wonders with the cfw stuff.
And remember that the firmware you picked matches your system. I have seen at least 3 bricks today.
You fucked around with the options of a tool that probably warned you against fucking with said options. Black square on menu means you either, installed or removed something from your NAND that you shouldn't. I hope you brick.
pick your flavor.
a simplified one, no very descriptive but got the job done for most people. make sure to read each piece of text.
this one has more info
I don't want to jeopardize my NNID, that's why I'm buying a second 3DS this weekend.
Also, I'm only pirating games I don't feel are worth buying. I have Hyrule Warriors Legends preordered ant that's not likely to change.
>How are they anyway?
Rumble World has the stupidest, most shallow gameplay, but overall the most fair pay-to-play aspect.
Shuffle is middle of the road, gameplay is pretty luck-based and becomes pretty bullshitty later on, but it's a bit more interesting than Rumble and you don't need hard currency to unlock stages.
Picross I haven't played that much, but it seemed to be the best gameplay-wise, and worst in the pay-to-play part. Gameplay is Picross, so you know it's great, but you need obscene amounts of paid currency to unlock some of the stages.
>What vidya do you intend to play/download anon?
I wanna try the Ace Attorney - Layton crossover since I never could find it at a decent price.
That happened to me too, I just went into the data management on my emunand and deleted all that shit. Nothing bad will happen but make sure your nands are unlinked otherwise going into data management will fuck your shit up.
>download all the games you want
>put them on SD
>fbi inject has option to install all games in one go
out of the 3, it takes less time to download and install. moving them to my SD is what takes the longest, since I'm using ftp software.
This is the stupidest question yet, but what exactly does this mean?
Fuck alright good to read but...
What do you mean I wont have a second chance? If something goes wrong am I forced to update the system or do you mean i would have to format and reinstall homebrew which you mean through browser hax i can only do it at 10.3?
>1. Download EmuNAND9 (latest release)

do i really only put launcher.dat on my sd card and don't use anything else out of the archive?
>that tenuous balance between a game not being shit and not being a fucking rip off
That's sort of depressing but to be expected I suppose.
How many hours do you think you've put into them, as an estimate?
>AA v Layton
Cool, I purchased that legitimately a few months ago. It's pretty good, although I'm not a massive Layton fan (despite enjoying the puzzles; just doesn't really click with me).
Still need to finish it though, but
from what I've played I've enjoyed it more than I did with Dual Destinies.
I should really get back into it, but with the influx of new titles thanks to these softmods I'm not expecting to any time soon.
Thanks for trying to help, anyway. I guess I could try restoring my nand.bin that I made after downgrading to 9.2, or make a new emunand, like you said. If anyone knows more about that, some knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
Well, to start over I just took out my SD card to format it and delete all the data, but it seems like there's still data on it seeing as how it's a 4gb and it's telling me it's now a 1.82 gb.
Any ideas as to what that's about?
>playing Kanata no Labyrinth translated
Thank you based piracy
Your emunand is on a hidden partition. Basically, you just deleted everything on your SD except what you needed to delete.
Just use whatever tool you used to create the emunand the first time.
downgrading doesn't delete them
just watch yourself with getting CFW to work
clone your sysNAND to emuNAND with this
also backup sysNAND before cloning
format sysNAND with tinyformat after making sure all your shit is on emuNAND
From the pastebin:
>If you unfortunately got an error on your reboot, you're semi-bricked. You have to load into recovery mode (A+R+L+Up on boot) and update your 3DS to 10.3 and try all over again.
Apparently on the very last step of the process something can go wrong and if you want to do the whole thing again you have to update the 3ds to the current firmware. If Nintendo updates it to 10.4 you're going to be fucked since there aren't going to be any homebrew launchers that work on it
If you're asking a bout downloaded games, once you downgrade, set up CFW and everything, you should be able to re-link your NNID and download everything again onto emuNand. If you are lucky, you won't need to format 3ds or SD and you will have those games (and saves) automatically once you downgrade, but this is not a likely scenario
You can update once you are on Emunand (AND ONLY EMU) via System Update on System config. No worries there
Ask me stuff, I'm installing cias so I have time to burn
I wish I wasn't so damn retarded when it came to these things.
>How many hours do you think you've put into them, as an estimate?
About 100 hours each on Shuffle and Rumble, and about 10 on Picross, according to my activity log. Just needed to complete the last few missions and get the last few balloons on Rumble. At least I didn't actually pay any real money in any of them.
I hope you're right about AA v Layton being better than Dual Destinies, that one ended up being my least favourite one apart from the first Investigations, although it was still good.
Can I just move the contents of one micro SD to the other without having to deal with all the hacking shut again or no?
OOT is not a first entrypoint, you need homebrew or a powersave to install the payload onto it. Also the OOT -payload is different for each version the firmware and console, if you update your console (or downgrade) the same payload doesn't work anymore.
>that moment when everything just works after hours and hours of blindly trying shit
I've been thinking on getting a 2DS for a while with the purpose of hacking it and playing roms. I know nothing about 2DS/3DS homebrew, but from what I'm getting there's an exploit that allows you to run isos even without flashcards. Is that right?
If so, any 2DS will do and do you recommend me getting one until Monday?
You can use E-Shop provided you re-link your NNID. It is "safe" since you can do pretty much anything, however, it will delete your non-legit DLC (That means: Dlc you have installed via .cia but you haven't bought) as evidenced here http://www.3dsiso.com/cia-downloads/263074-read-warning-precautions-cia-files.html.
Damn I love to sponfeed but this is a loaded question. Okay so basically RxTools is a way to enter the emunand with rxmode activated, this basically means you can enter a copy of the 3ds system with a lot more of -unsigned- features, like installing .cia files (games and dlc) and whatnot. Ignore this >>323019695 Sky shill. As for why you get an error, I cannot tell you since I don't have details of your sd or what you've done
When I used Cakes it took something like 7 seconds to go from black screen to emunand. But right when it kicks, it shows some letters in the inferior screen. If that doesn't happen, Cakes most likely failed to load and you'll need to hard reset. You'll have better luck trying CTRBootManager
yes, I unlinked. the step I missed was something related to rxtools, that may not have been that important.
the only thing that sucks is having to boot through rxtools to reach emu. I know there's a way to boot directly, but I can't be bothered with that.
That means you are now on Emunand -a copy of the 3ds system that is located on your sd- wich haves more features that your Sysnand (the 3ds system on the 3ds memory). That means you are ready to use an injector (FBI, BBM or DevMenu) to install .cia files, you can also update from System update (MAKE SURE BEFORE THIS THAT THE SYS VERSION SAYS "RX" since that means you are on EMUNAND)
you're fine, RX-E means your rxtools loaded just fine (you're in emuNAND).
Now, when you exit settings, you'll be back into your sysNAND, so be aware. I recomend using differend themes for sys/emunands to distinguish them
Hold L or whatever button you setup when installing menuhax so it doesn't trigger while booting into rxmode.
Chage themes once in emunand to remove menuhax so it doesn't loop like that. Pray you had the sense to read the prerequisites of the guide and that you had already unliked your nands or get ready to deal with sliderhax again to get your homebrew back on sysnand. Unlink your nands before reapplying menuhax if you hadn't done so already.
There is NO reason to unlink NANDs now that downgrade is aviable.You will only lose some features by doing so.
Don't give up yet, if your dlc is deleted for accesing the eshop, you can just re-install it and it will come back, so try to use eshop only when strictly necesary
Use CTRBootManager and you will load Emunand when you load Menuhax
I recommend changing themes as well, alternatively, you can create (on SysNand) a cluster of folders that spell "SysNand" so you know right away if you get onto Sys
It's relatively easy. Install menuhax via HBC, then use CtrBootManager (google it). Menuhax launches whatever boot.3dsx file is in your SD card's root. Normally, that's HBC, if you just installed the starter pack and left everything as is. CtrBootManager just gives you an alternative boot.3dsx with a menu to boot into rxTools, HBC or sysNAND instead.
Developers and Nintendo lose money because their games get pirated
Online multiplayer gets ruined by hackers making players stop playing
Pirating and Hacking is just wrong, it damages everybody except for the hacker. Ever since all of these threads have been popping up I realize this board is not for me anymore.
Thanks. I'll probably get on that later, after I grab some more games.
also, since we now have a shit ton of /v/irgins able to pirate and play games online, are we going to try and get something going? maybe some mario kart, or MHX?
sorry not cakes, I meant pasta CFW.
following this guide: http://pastebin.com/QhDq5iyW
trying to launch pasta and it stays black screen. tried both browser and menu. gonna try oot3d this time and see what happens.
I was planning on using the emunand tool to extract the nand, inject it into a new SD card, and copy the files to the new SD card. After, to completely clean the old SD card, I would use diskpart.
You can update without even having a nnid. But yes as long as your nnid isn't bugged or you aren't signed in at all. You just have to update the game before you can play online.
Nintendo has no way to tell if you are updating a legit game. could be a cartridge for all they know.
Do note, though, it's only safe to download GAME updates from the eshop. It's not safe to update your firmware when the eshop nags you to.
apparently somewhere along the way I lost all my save games but before I did this I saved everything on my sd card, am I fucked? Is there a way to get that data into my CFW? (I don't really care, but it would be nice to not lose my MH data)
>Install costume theme on sysnand with rxtools
>install homebrew launcher in emunand and install same costume theme from their
>Nothing happens or again, override the existing menuhax
The fuck am I doing wrong?
Just only use your sysnand for loading emunand and then you can do pretty much whatever you want without fear. Just remember to only update the system via system settings (and ensure that you are indeed updating emunand).
You may need to update your emunand. Some games require a FW later that 9.2 , some games have cryptofixed cia:s that work on lower ones, but what you want to do is update your emunand to latest possible, on the o3DS this is 10.3 (latest one) but on the n3DS you CAN / NOT / go above 9.5 right now.
Xenoblade Chronicles requires 9.4 btw. so if you want that, you're gonna have to update your emunand
I meant the diskpart is going to be used to wipe the old SD card entirely when I'm done. But from what you are saying, I can use this multi emunand to format the new SD card, so that I can inject the extracted nand from the old SD card.
>the page, pdf quickstart guide and a readme all say different shit on what to copy over to sd card
>there are games with removed version requirements you know where
Where the fuck do you think you are?
Going to bed now. Good luck and happy pirating, anons.
Happy bricking to all the fuck stupid redditors and gbatemp fucktards lurking the thread.
Yeah, that's it. It installs for a long while depending on the game, TURN YOUR BRIGHTNESS TO 1 because somebody reported burn in or something after having his screen blast the filename on max brightness for over an hour
After it's done, you can exit FBI with the home button normally. You can also press R to switch to delete mode and remove the .cia after you've installed it, it's useless. Just don't fuck around with fbi or any of it's options.
I did it but there arent many games I want that I didnt already buy.
>Etrian Odyssey Untold 2
>Pokemon Alpha Sapphire
That's it so far. Maybe I'll get into Monster Hunter or something. Is Kid Icarus Uprising good? Any decent jRPGs I should snag? On O3DS so Xenoblade is out of the question and I'd rather emulate that on Dolphin anyway.
wait i followed the first pastebin
i don't even remember what menuhax is but its on my sd card
will going browser>rx tool>emunand not work anymore?
what is going to change monday or am i safe?
Is it possible to install DLC via cia files and have them work for games you own and not in the emu?
Like for example I have SMTIV and I want to unlock all the dlc when I play normally. Is that possible or only through the emunand?
I'm just curious as to what functionality those add because I have rxtools set up and I can install cias with no issues and my emunand is current with nnid, eshop, and online.
does this sound right?
1. In sysnand, go to System Settings -> Other Settings -> Format System (Do not accept nevertheless)
two. Eject your Sd card (don't be concerned, it is safe)
three. Accept to Format your 3DS/2DS
