>go through the hassle of installing CFW on my 3DS
>find out that ALL the games I want to play require 10.1 or higher firmware
oh fucking kill me
I have been reading guides on this for days and still absolutely cannot comprehend how.
I'm downgraded to 9.2, have Pasta CFW running from the homebrew launcher and Menuhax working, I've backed up Sysnand I guess too but from there it's such an absolute pile of jargon and I can't figure out any of it
On the rxTools page it says that it only supports emunand up to 9.9
Also it's literally the same shit as pasta cfw. I just don't know how to unlink that gay shit. How do you do it with rxTools? I'm not invested in pasta, I just need something that will play this one goddamn game
if you want a good guide here use this one step by step
YES SPLITTING NANDS IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE
I can't even get rxtools to start. I put it in the homebrew apps folder of my SD card but it's not showing up
I guess I have to load it through browser though? the fuck is this bullshit
>splitting nands is next to impossible
What? It is the easiest part of the process.
Go to /hbg/ and find the guide for absolute mouth breathing retards. You should be able to do it if you follow that.
except the game I want isn't out in my country idiot
I just don't understand how to do it. I have backed up my NAND but actually creating an emunand is really really confusing
Only if you're using an old 3DS. Considering how much harder it is to downgrade on N3DS, and because (for now, at least) you can't update your emunand, it's barely worth it to install CFW on N3DS.
That being said, I'm enjoying my free games.
Use this guide from part c and on. Read everything before it in case you didn't do any of that shit, I'm assuming you did.
Ask /hbg/ for further help, but only if your answer isn't in the guide. Be respectful, and they will help you.
ive been following this http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
i downgraded and everything was going perfect until i got to ctrbootmanager. i started my 3ds and it would just put me at the menu. someone said to change theme and then reinstall menuhax but only the homebrew launcher comes up. i read everything over but im not sure what im missing
both brew.3dsx and boot.3dsx need to be in the root right?
You need to go to the browser settings and click "Initialize save data". You should reinstall menuhax from the homebrew menu once you get it.
Use the guide I just posted, though.
You reinstall menuhax FROM the homebrew launcher.
You need to have the file you renamed to brew names as boot in order to install menuhax, though. Once you reinstall menuhax, then you can rename it to brew again and the new boot file will allow you to hold L and boot into CTR, and then RxTools
How the shitfuck do I get Browser/Menuhax to work again once i've downgraded? I've tried launching it with the QR code like last time and nada, it just loads an empty web page instead of the hack.
Can someone please help me. I have a n3ds XL version 10.3 with ironhax. I really only care about emulators and custom themes. Not interested in pirating 3ds games. Is there any reason for me to downgrade my system? I really want to find an answer before they patch it tomorrow.
Zoom all the way in on the webpage and swipe to the top left. Click that thing there.
You will also need to reinstall menuhax from the homebrew menu.
You'll have to do this a third time when you split your nands.
Try scanning the QR code and launching your browser with your wireless connection turned off. Once you get an error saying that there's no internet connection, press the home button and turn on your wireless, then go into the browser again.
okay first step is to dl the starter zip aka homebrew from here
afterwards extract it to your sd card all the contents
then you will dl the menuhaxv2.1 from here
and put the contents into your sd card
next step is to install menuhax on your 3ds first go to your sd root on your computer and click on your nintendo 3ds folder
then make it all the way to the root with the folder extradata
if there is no dbs folder create a dbs folder
inside put in 2 txt files 1 called title and 1 called import
make sure your hide file extension is not checked in windows and change the files to .db extention

You just need to firmware-spoof the cia for n3ds.
when you start the application you will want to
go to EmuNAND Manager Options and Dump SysNAND to NAND.bin this takes about 10 mins and do not touch anything once it has started
after that has completed go back to the main menu ny hitting b twice hit the select button an remove your sd card and copy the contents on your computer
after you have finish copying the contents from your folder put the sd card back and press b
and select Complete EmuNAND Setup and follow the prompts once this is completed turn off your system
Jesus I fucking tired of these faggots who can't even read a damn noob guide
Just cryptofix the CIA faggot
you are listening to too many people who don't know where you are at so you are going to get yourself confused and right now i've had enough the other fellas can now help you out
thats because your only halfway done you
you don't load rxtools just yet
first you want to dl this version of rx tools https://mega.nz/#!KQ1HVDLZ!TJhiM4zQlknFSqdkDDf8oGMHaNod6-WbR_ggznC8b3c
empty it to your sd root
and load up the cdn_firm.py i hope you have python 2.7 installed.
I stopped at installing Homebrew now I wait for people like you to make the hard work go faster bud
next you want to dl the cakescfw and find the firmware bin in that folder and put that in rxtools/sys folder.
I hope you have menuhax install again and changed it to type cause now we are going to rename the boot.3sdx in your sd root to bootHBL.3dsxl
afterwards dl this file https://gbatemp.net/attachments/ctrbootmanager-1-2-zip.29831/ and unzip it to your sd root
when you load up you should be in rxtools
