So, is the update coming tomorrow?
^ Downgrading guide. CFW flowchart at bottom.
^ Autobooting RxTools guide.
>follow a long ass guide
>something goes to shit with cakes, no one knows how to help, can't switch to anything else
>start over, follow a guide for retards
>rxTools refuse to install, no one knows how to help
>try using idfferent cards
>have exams coming up and I wasted 3 days trying to get this shit to work
What is currently going wrong for you? What steps have you completed so far? If you have an o3ds then i might be able to help. If you have a n3ds i believe you should use cakes instead of rxtools
I'm at a black screen after installing rxTools and downgrading.
I can't boot into rxTools, normally, or into safe-boot.
All I'm seeing is the backligt as I turn on my 3DS.
What's wrong? Am I bricked?
Quit your whining. You didn't even brick your console.
I was following http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW but wherever I open rxTools, it says installation failed. I'm in the part about unlinking nands but I can't switch to emunand or sysnand because it fails to load Native_firm: 4 or something like that
The longer one unlinkied them fine but cakes either kept freezing without ever getting to the menu or deleting everything from the folders
Don't worry. You aren't FORCED to hit the update button on Monday, even if they release a fix.
Which they won't, because this took them months last time, not days.
Yep. Before and after it failed few times. All it changed is that now when following the longer guide, when I try to dump the sysnand to nand.bin, it keeps saying that there is not enough space left on the card even though there is like 60GB left.
Yep. Downloaded from the links in the longer guide and the for retards one. Tried muliplte times even with switching them around.
People brick them on all stages. I'm actually surprised I didn't brick mine yet.
Still, thanks for the warning.
>Downgraded to 9.2
>Only have 4gb card so cant fit any games on it
Can i get bigger card after the update or am i fucked?
I downgraded to 9.2 and Ironhax (which i used for the homebrew launcher to downgrade if that matters) doesn't open anymore. It just gives me the Nintendo 3DS logo on an infinite loop. What do?
The easiest procedue is to install rxTools and FBI.
2.6 acts as a CFW you can boot in the Emunand, which you can update to 10.3 thus play any game.
FBI will let you install games.
That is the most basic option.
For more shit you can do, check the guids on this thread or the /hgb/ threads in /vg/
It works but you need at lest 20 tries to make it work
Try again. If the touch screen changes colors that implies you're in a good way. OoT3Dhax is the best you can try. Literally a 2 tries to go
>not even able to install cfw
I installed CHMM 2, but every time I boot it the app froze itself.
I've put two .zip files in themes folder.
Any help?I jut want a cool theme.
where do you get your games on 3dsiso? I only see this list here
ive tried EVERYTHING to get the homebrew launcher, the most basic step, onto my 2ds, and nothing works.
My firmware is: 7.1.0-16E
I can't do much of anything such as Menuhax or other stuff without 9.2 firmware. So I've tried browserhax over and over and it flicks the yellow screen then grey then does nothing, I've tried over and over with the Starter.zip files corrently in the SD card, it won't install the hack.
I've managed to get Rxtools working through the browser, to install FBI for CIAs, but it needs me to browserhax everytime I want to load rxtools and boot into emunand.
I don't know what to do anymore.
yes but most of MH4U's file size came from them actually focussing on the story with cutscenes+prerendered shit
MHX has literally no story at all and short and retarded looking cutscenes. Every monster doesnt even get one at that
it has a little more monsters though
Got MM3D and I still wonder why they put in those ugly Shiekah stone again.
And also the UI design again.
I mean, the game looks pretty. Effects are nice, looks like they even improved the lightning but then it was time for UI and then they said "no this is enough"
Get at least 32GB.
They're not that expensive, I think a class 10 32GB from sandisk costs 10-15€
8GB is suffering.
Just read a guide. There are enough for O3DS/N3DS.
It looks complicated at first but if you follow the steps closely, you'll get it. And if you run into problems, people will help you.
For CFW/Downgrade you only need a microSD, a card reader and a PC
To make it real simple. Your nand is sort of your OS with all sorts if stuff linked to it. Sysnand is your actual system. Emunand is basically a virtual virtual machine running it
I'm only interested in playing like 3 3DS games, all released in murrika already. Should I just get a flashcard or go ahead and downgrade to 9.2?
But since I only want to play a handful of games, wouln't it be better to just get a flashcard and avoid the risk of bricking the device?
I guess I'll think it over since I rarely use my 3DS anyway.
Flashcards aren't free though.
Honestly, if you can count the amount of games you want on a hand, and you want stable updates with minimal hassle and 0 chance to brick
I'd just buy the games from Nintendo's eShop.
How similar a process is it compared to DS flash carts? If Gateway is more stable and more simile then CFW I just might go with that.
Also where is the most trustworthy place to get an actual working Gateway and not some clone? Every time I look for any kind of flashcart im looking all day because every site looks shady as fuck.
You have a long way to go first anon. You need to use minpasta to install .FBI on your sd card, make a backup NAND from that, backup your entire sd card so you can format it for your emunand, bring back your original sysnand, then install rxtools.
I don't see what's so hard about all this.
I thought I was literally retarded and incapable of following simple instructions yet I was still able to get things running flawlessly. If anything the amount of people failing to do this shit is making me realize i'm not as retarded as I think I am.
The only reason a person bricks is if there fucking stupid enought to ude N3DS Files on O3DS and vice-versa
>Spend an entire day getting the whole downgrade process right
>Spend another day handpicking my favorite NES, SNES and GBA roms, and making custom icons and banners for the GBA ones
>Spend a day looking for good 3DS games
>I already owned all the ones I really want
>Can't bring myself to play any games other than the ones I already owned
>I already preordered fates anyway
Wow, FUCK Nintendo. They made me waste my time with this.
recommend me some good jap only shit
think about the most idiotic a human being could possibly be, and realize there will always be someone dumber than that
*tip* all you want, you fucking retards. i'm playing games, and you're not
>tfw finally got this shit working
Metal gear solid 3, majora's mask 3D and Ace Attorney vs Professor Layton are surprisingly good.
Also, dat music in rhythm heaven plus is so fucking good.
It's the NAND backup. Keep it in a safe place or you're fucked
regarding the Fix Error 022-2634 (Accessing eShop) step...
i have an old 3DS XL that i received from a friend in 2014 after he got bored with it; do i need his credentials for this step? when i enter eShop it logs into his account but of course i don't have its password.
if i need the account name and password to fix the eshop, can i still do that monday or i'll have to fix it before they release the 10.4 update?
Undubs are cool. Don't care for savestates or cheats, they cheapen the games for me and wish they didn't exist.
Right now I'm having more fun than I should with SSFIV. It's a pretty decent port. Shame it's dead and outdated.
Some of you guys are alright. Don't leave your Wifi Switch on tomorrow.
Yes, but downgrade to 9.2
>inb4 using wrong system files
Depends on the game, I'm playing Stella Glow and I would be forced to play the game twice to see all the characters' epilouges.
I can use a cheat to give me infinite free time and the problem is solved now.
If I have menuhax setup to take me to CTRBootManager where I access rxtools, do I have to worry about my wifi being on? The one thing I'm paranoid about is a forced update hitting me and ruining all my hard work.
>install sweet CFW
>install a handful of games
>still play DS games I bought years ago
I just don't know anymore
>whats all this panic about the 11th can they really force you to upgrade just by using you browser?
Only if you're between 9.9 and 10.3
Downgrading to 9.2 pretty much nulls any of their forced upgrade attempts.
So, I've been following this guide here (http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW) but apparently I'm too retarded.
I'm at step c-19, but when the CTRBootManager loads, it automatically boots the rxtools thing (the first time it loaded some things and the next times it just loads and then returns to the home menu).
I tried holding L while it opens automatically, but it seems to freeze my 3DS, since I'm stuck here with a black screen on top and red screen at the bottom.
Did I fuck up? Should I restart from some step? Which one?
What the fuck? Why would you want to re-link something that needs to be unlinked and stay that way? Christ man, read. Make sure you're in sysnand, go to settings, take out your SD card and format it. Once that's finished that means that your nands are unlinked. Leave it at that.
>Old theme BGM plays instead of theme I setup
also, what other 3ds games should I get?
Sadly, nope, o3ds.
Thanks fro trying anyway.
Don't know about n3DS, but on o3DS, it's literally the just as fast as FBI 1.4.7.
Anyone that considered installing game CIAs with the old as fuck FBI version that rxtools injects into H&S is clinically retarded.
Also, if you're on N3DS you can only upgrade emuNAND to 9.5. Most CIA I've downloaded supported 9.2 (cryptofix) but I can't game online before I upgrade to 9.5 but that's not important right now.
If its playing the old theme music, switch to the default white them then try reinstalling the theme you want. This should fix the music glitch.
This guide is what I used for o3DS, followed to the letter and it worked like a charm. The only difference is the firmware.bin file you need and it details where to get it for o3DS.
Alright then, I will trust you, anon.
Every time I uninstall a game or app in emunand, all my .cia installed games become wrapped boxes again. Is that normal.
My hands are unlinked. Is that normal, r-right?
Im retarded and still don't know what to do after downgrading to 9.2
the op only tells you how to get to 9.2 but that part was easy. I don't know what else I'm supposed to download to my system that lets me do anything
>he fell for the meme!
Another one bites the dust.
To ensure that I'm unlinked, I should boot in SYSNAND>go to settings>system format>remove SD card>yes format>let it do its things>boot in home and insert SD card?
Pls reply. Thanks in advance.
Well, you need WiFi for browserhax, but not menuhax, but you need the homebrew menu to install menuhax anyway, but after that, menuhax just requires you to boot your console while l
holding L trigger
Ok, I followed the guide completely but I'm stuck on opening rxools for the first time.
I'll launch it through HBL and it'll say that everyone sucessfully loaded, press any button to continue and then freeze to a black screen when I press a button.
RETARDS GUIDE: AUTOBOOTING RXTOOLS
CREDITS GO TO THE ANON WHO MADE THIS GUIDE AT /hbg/
>have an emunand made with either gateways launcher or emunand9tool
I DON'T KNOW WHAT EMUNAND IS
Now would be a bad moment since I'm sure the demand just went way the fuck down.
If anyone bothers with a half decent 10.3+ exploit the price will go back up because it'll likely be the only first entry point from here on out.
Keyword being IF.
You don't really need to. It's still the starter pack stuff and that really doesn't cause an issue. Hell I'd suggest still using the DNS address for tubehax to block out ninty's servers to not stealth download the update
I've done this 1000 times already
Every time the .cias install for the downgrade, I get an error upon reboot
Used different updaters, used different entry points, ran ftbrony, took the SD card out, re-entered the files on SD, still same results
What else is there to do at this point?
HOLY SHIT GUYS
I BOOT IN SYSNAND, CHOSE FORMAT, REMOVED SD, CONFIGURED, BIOT INTO MENU, INSERTED SD...
WHEN I TRY TO BOOT HOLDING "L" IT DOESNT BOOT INTO RXTOOLS!!
AFTER ALL THE WORK I DID TO GET THINGS WORKING
So I've got japanese o3ds with 9.2, installed rxTools 3.0 nightly, updated emuNAND to latest version and ready to roll.
Can I still use miiverse, streetpasses, localplay?
Will playing online will get me blocked anyway? I didn't logged into nintendo network yet. Should I get new account? NANDs unlinked.
Yeah but since I'm going to get a new SD card soon I don't want to do the process twice.
Unless I can just install everything on my current card and then transfer the data on the new one. Does that work?
>Get a newer sysupdate and try again anon
Tried a couple versions already, all the same. Except for one which would make the top screen glitchy on the initial screen so I wouldn't even touch it, just shut down.
First, remove the files associated with menuhax from your SD card and store them elsewhere. Then open up the theme menu so your 3DS can install the data needed for menuhax to work. Now, install menuhax again. If you did it right, you'll have working menuhax again.
Also, never use caps lock again. It makes you look retarded.
So I have bought basically every game I ever wanted on 3DS since I got it and would only pirate for MH X. Would it be worth it? I'm using a limited edition MH n3DS XL with a bunch of digital games (savegames I'd lose on them I think?)
Would it be worth it? Man I just don't know
I've downgraded 3 fucking times now and FBI still refuses to install because of an invalid signature. Does rebooting after applying the PastaCFW not work? Because trying to use browserhax after applying it doesn't work, it gets stuck at a grey screen.
anyone know how to install rom hacks? Trying to install a Pokemon Omega Ruby mod. Instructions mentions to use braindump, so I installed the pirated pokemon OR and in braindump it's not showing in the pokemon game in title selection.
Basically, How do you get it to show your games, with braindump or with the save filemanager in homebrew?
>Don't really wanna install cfw right now
>might not have another chance if I dont force myself to do it today because of the supposed patch monday
I thought I would be safe if I downgraded to 9.2, fucking cucktendo just wont FUCK OFF wont they?
How much time does installing CFW take? I have a very busy day tomorrow and don't really want to spend my free day trying to install CFW and probably fucking something up because I really don't feel like dealing with the autism that is installing CFW right now
The ropbin file that has menuhax in the name and the menuhax config file if you set up a different configuration for accessing menuhax. That should be all. Removing those will allow you to redo the process of installing menuhax if you need to.
>I thought I would be safe if I downgraded to 9.2, fucking cucktendo just wont FUCK OFF wont they?
if you've already downgraded you're fine. take your time
>How much time does installing CFW take?
No more than 20 minutes if you're not stupid
I'm pretty stupid so it might take me the entire day.
>if you've already downgraded you're fine. take your time
What about that patch thing that blocks browserhax so you're cut off from homebrew and thus can't install rxtools? Or was that bullshit?
ok, i need to get this fixed because it makes no sene at all...
i completed this guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji , i managed to download my already bought 3ds games and they work well (even a copy of KI uprising i got from that Club Nintendo exploit), i also DLed from the Eshop the 1.1.3 smash update (im not interested in pirating the DLC because i have a legit copy of the game).
but trying to run it from emunand gets me an error that says theres no update data in there and will not let me save my game, even worse if i press the home button, it crashes my 3ds.
i dont see the point to use sysnand to run it because it shouldnt be necessary, and i dont want to download the CIA, because i have a legit cart and, as such, it should be working, and i dont want to waste 2gbs on my SDcard.
im using CakesFW as the guide indicates, i want to know why this error occurs, if it is because of Cakes, and if so, how can i change the CFW without much hassle?...
this is my sd card right now
>that fucking feel
man I know it too well. I thought I could just wait until I had time / the process was super safe but apparently nintendo can shutdown your browser usage without you even running an update, forcing the update on you in return. FUCK what should we do now?
>will I lose my digital savegames if I install CFW?
>can I ever update my 3DS ever again when I install CFW?
so many fucking questions, I liked it better to put CFW on my triple and PSP when sony were no longer patching it. this way the CFW was fine and I didn't need to worry about future games needing a more recent OFW
>So I've got japanese o3ds with 9.2, installed rxTools 3.0 nightly, updated emuNAND to latest version and ready to roll.
>Can I still use miiverse, streetpasses, localplay?
>Will playing online will get me blocked anyway? I didn't logged into nintendo network yet. Should I get new account? NANDs unlinked.
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO NAME IT LIKE THIS
>Put my sd card in
>Fucking present boxes come in everywhere like the games were just downloaded fucking out of order how I originally place them
>SHIT SHIT SHIT MY SAVE DATA
>Save data for the games are still there
Thank you jesus fuck but this shit autistic god damn now I have to rearrange everything back to way it was, and all this because I might want to play the fan-translation to fire emblem fates
I think I broke menuhax. On a N3ds at 10.3, I installed menuhax then tried to change theme using the menuhax manager. It told me to open the home menu theme manager so I did,then restarted. Menuhax manager still gave me the same error so I tried the badge menu, changed some shit around. Now I can't load menuhax. How am I supposed to use custom themes with this? Can I just reinstall it through browserhax?
>Americans call their secret service "NTR"
long maintenance= new fw update literally 100% of the time. 10.4 or whatever they'll call it is coming monday
I tried everything from following the tutorials to trying doing different things but i can't get menuhax to work, i can change theme and that's it, when i go to the web page gateway it get's stuck on the loading screen and does nothing.
The Vita is far more protected than the 3ds.
It has vulnerabilities is the psp ecosystem for homebrew and psp iso/cso loading as well as some psx support. Essentially the same stuff DarkAlex was doing 10 years ago on the psp.
The Vita software itself is incredibly complex and any time anything major happens there is a massive change in the way the filesystem is setup putting people at square one.
Sony built it like a monster.
Love the Umineko theme.
Also using the Gunvolt Sumeragi 7 one and Ace's attorney's chibi theme. They're all really cool. Though I changed the music so that Umineko plays Oh Desire, and Gunvolt plays one of Lumen's song instead.
Broswerhax and menuhax are definitely gonna be blocked. Like they have a history of blocking exploits with "Stability" updates since August. They're gonna do it again. No idea if memchunkhax2/sysupdater will get blocked though, I'd think it would take more time to fix an exploit that big
the browser is only blocked if your
>9.9 and above
>have connected to the internet at all
if you below 9.9 your browser will never get blocked with update nag
Follow /vg/ guides to hack your 3ds, you will need a brain though
>>323450898 >>323450983 >>323451091
A few have been saying it took months to fix browershax and other exploits in the past. This whole thing is more complicated than the others.
The maintenance news just came out a few days after all this was released.
So yeah, I'll believe it's nothing, or just more "stability"
You've downgraded... multiple times? Why would you do that? Do you want to brick your console THAT badly?
Just skip this step and inject FBI into health and safety later.
BUT IF YOU INSIST Getting browserhax to work twice is impossible. Use something else first.
Alright I'll make it simple
I'm already on 9.2, can I wait as long as I want or do I have to install CFW RIGHT NOW because browserhax might be blocked tomorrow (so no way to install rxtools)
can you not fucking read
he literally said the browser is only blocked if you on 9.9 and above otherwise it will give you update nag and force you to update to use it
Took me 30 minutes for everything. The Catch All guide is fucking awesome.
Can i downgrade a banned O3DS? I'm wondering mostly due to the part when you format the 3ds w/o sd to unlink sysnands and updating the emunand that require internet connection to nintendo. Any ideas? I've succesfully downgraded 3 non banned o3ds now but i don't know what to do with the third.
to boot into menuhax you have to hold L when booting up your 3DS
if that doesnt work, go into the theme menu from the 3DS main menu (hit change theme or something like that after you hit the button on the top left of the bottom screen). It'll say something about writing theme data to the SD card. Then install menuhax again
>3 non banned o3ds
Where are all you people getting so many 3DSes?
I honestly only knew one person that owns one, he was trying to sell it too.
Are you buying them up and modding them to sell? I've seen a few others do that
Yes but aren't the browser and browserhax two separate things? Your browser might not be blocked, but they might still fuck up browserhax so it doesn't work even though your browser works
Not all of us are autists who actually know how this shit works, for most of us it's magic, so we don't assume anything.
What I thought he might meant was, browserhax might get blocked, but if you're on 9.9 or above and have used your browser you're already fucked anyways.
This is why people brick their 3ds, lots of guides just assume the reader already knows shit that the average normal person has no way in knowing, forcing them to assume things.
I don't want to install rxTools because i have the standard 4gb sdcard, too small i think.
Do i still need to do that unlink thing? What do i do now anyway? Reinstall browser or menuhax?
Dont give up! It took me the whole weekend to get mine to work
Here's a good guide
what the fuck does this have to do with the fact youre on 9.2
sounds like the only autist is you who cant fucking read. if you're below 9.9 youre fine and nothing can happen to your browser. he even said the browser might be blocked on 10.4 when it releases
read you dumb fuck
I'm running a little business of "installing free games on your 3ds" on my city. No one knows about shit about dowgrading, cias, etc they just want free games. This is the first person that gave me a banned o3ds. Since no one knows about gateway/sky3ds i guess he used the eshop coin exploit or something.
How safe is downgrading from 10.3 to 9.2 on N3DS?
Yes. CIA use the consoles system ID which is unique for every system. with those, there is no way of getting banned
.3DS files need private headers to play online. If you dont use your own private header it just automatically sticks you with a public one. Public headers have a guaranteed chance of getting banned because if nintendo sees the two exact same headers online you get banned from the game
It's an official theme. It uses an 8-bit version of one of AA original songs.
I kinda want to make an updated version with AJ-DD-AAI-AAI2 sprites included but I'll do it later.
>what the fuck does this have to do with the fact youre on 9.2
I don't know, see? That's why I'm asking.
>sounds like the only autist is you who cant fucking read
Calm down anon, I know autism is hard to deal with and thus it leads you to overcomplicate things because you can't deal with the fact not every person thinks in the same way you do, but see if you were a healthy socially functional person you'd simply say
>If you're on 9.2 you're safe, just wait
As opposed to confusing the reader with tech babble he doesn't understand, making him second guess himself, asking more questions
Which is exactly what most guides do.
If you downgraded to 9.2, you can use the browser to launch the Gateway menu (to create your emunand and downgrade to 4.x if you want) or just go emunand to rxtools straight. Depending if the type of exploit you want (mset exploit or autoboot).
>you're below 9.9 youre fine and nothing can happen to your browser.
Yes but does browserhax rely exclusively on the browser? Can nintendo fuck up browserhax without touching the 3ds browser, thus it doesn't matter whether you can use your browser or not, as browserhax itself would get fucked
That's what he's asking. Most companies deal with security issues by simply altering the way their software works, without the user ever knowing something changed except when he tries to run the exploit in question, while nintendo is inept and goes full retard just entirely brute force blocking a piece of software, that's why he's confused.
this is literally textbook projection if I ever seen holy shit. You're getting mad at him because he wants to explain ever thing fully and turn around and get into an argument that he does
>Press Y to downgrade!
For the last fucking half hour, every time. Also, the FTP program hangs the system when exiting, so that's not helping either. Is there anything else I can change to increase my chances?
>Yes but does browserhax rely exclusively on the browser?
...its fucking called BROWSERhax for a reason m8. Thats a stupid fucking question he asked
>Can nintendo fuck up browserhax without touching the 3ds browser, thus it doesn't matter whether you can use your browser or not, as browserhax itself would get fucked
I was following a simple guide but I'm stuck at the part where it tells me to install FBI to NAND.. It gives out a permission error. What do?
I've tried unzipping everything to the SD card again, going to system -> rebuild SD card and multiple times..
None of this stuff looks too difficult, but I don't know what order to do it in.
So first I install 2 hacks (browser and menu)
Then I downgrade from 10.3 to 9.2 on my old 3DS
Next I should download gateway firmware, and rxtools, install that shit, then setup emunand?
After that step I have no idea how to install CIA of games.
Does the ace attorney dlc cia actually exist? I'm starting to lose hope.
I have it all working just fine, already installed my first game and it works.
Buuuut I have a 4Gb SD card. Tomorrow I'll get a 32Gb one.
Do I have to do the whole formatting emunand or can I just copy the contents of my current SD card to the new one and it will work?
>Download the starter zip
>make sure you put those files on the root of the SD card
>Scan this QR code
>Make sure you have a connection set up
>Re-try (Turn ds off and then back on) if it freezes on a color
