doesn't work

Go to SD card

SD:\Nintendo 3DS\25436f04129e561 folder

There should be two random number folders those two folders are sysnand and emunand

for both of those folders open them up and you will see a folder extdata add a folder 'dbs' along side it, so it should be like

J:\Nintendo 3DS\25436f046d49461\f6a6002544d\dbs

and in that dbs folder make two text file docs and rename them to 'import.db' and 'title.db'

do that for both of those random name files that are sysnand and emunand.

Next pop in that sd, launch into home menu and go to system settings, data management, nintendo 3ds, software

a error message pops up and it will automatically fix it and it should do it.

It's an installer that will with 3 clicks get you all the files you need for:

>coldboot configured

The only requirement is that you be in 10.3, so don't update to 10.4.

If I wait long after Nintendo patches 10.4 before adding cfw will I be fucked and not be able to go to eshop or play games like shuffle that ask for nnid to connect online?
>>
You guys are gonna' judge me the worlds worst asshole for this, but I gotta ask. You know what I don't understand with these threads?

Why would anyone help you?

Think about it, anyone who knows what they're doing has already completed, right? They have access to free 3DS games, meaning they are no longer going to be buying them (unless they want to).

This, in turn means that developers will see slightly less value in the 3DS, as more and more people, the people we are educating here, also get CFW and free games.

This will make the 3DS a less appealing device to develop for.

Meaning that a pirate converting a non-pirate to pirating is really just reducing the odd that he will get more game to pirate in the future, right?

By helping you guys out ITT, I am actively reducing the odds that developers (and even Nintendo) will continue supporting the device I myself have for pirating.

How many people besides me do you think have reached this conclusion and are actively giving BAD advice? Face it, if you can't pirate, you're gonna' have to buy to play whatever game you want.

Meaning the non-pirate is supporting more games for the pirate.

Food for thought.

Yeah, but why do it at all, I mean? Like, for what reason? By educating one guy through piracy, you are reducing the odds he'll be BUYING your favorite game, and thus reducing the odds that the company will make a sequel or new games for your pirated device.

I know this is a mean way of thinking, but why would you do this?

At their own expense? No, that would be "stupid humans".

I mean, the expense may be incredibly little (one sale probably isn't going to make or break anything) but why risk it?

It's an illogical action, and it's not like you're on a forum where your deeds will be carried with you.

You're making a paying customer, into a non-paying customer for no rewards, and in fact, some slight loss on your own part.

if someone was actively trying to set up their system for piracy I doubt they'd be buying games otherwise

>>
>>323518958
>if someone was actively trying to set up their system for piracy I doubt they'd be buying games

Really? If your favorite series is X, and X2 comes out, you'd buy it right? Unless you where a pirate. Meaning you would not buy it. Now you hope that someone buys it, because if they don't there won't be an X3.

All you're doing by helping others is reducing the chance there will ever BE an X3.

>also not everyone's doing this for piracy
And you're willing to risk that? I know it's fun to help, and get all those sweet (You)'s, but are you really going to help someone because they "might" not pirate anything?

Like mentioned, I know I'm the biggest asshole alive, but I don't understand why threads like this even exist on a place as jaded as /v/.

So you do it to attain information about a topic that will be pretty redundant now that you have CFW? Why?

If there ever comes along another exploit, it will probably work nothing like this, so why store this information in your head as vital at all?

And at the possible cost of a lost buyer for your favorite series?

>>
>>323518195

The people in this thread are not even a piss in the ocean of sales. Helping out the people here would not affect 3DS game sales in any noticeable way. I highly doubt that Nintendo is worried about this exploit, maybe a few thousand people used it to downgrade their systems, they are going to patch it, and sale numbers will not change much

Most of the people that even bothered to downgrade are people who aren't really interested in investing much more into the 3DS, considering there is a chance you can destroy your system. Yeah, supposedly if you aren't a moron you won't brick your 3DS, but your trusting people on /v/ to know what the fuck they are talking about, you must not care much about your 3DS.

Absolutely true. I'm not saying that pirates make up even a percent of sales, but they do make up something. Why gamble with that?

>would not affect 3DS game sales in any noticeable way

How does one know? What if the thousand users here had 900 people who where going to buy YourFavoritNicheGameHere and now that they didn't get those 900 sales the odds of making a new one are somehow lower? Is that really worth gambling with? Even if the chances are incredibly slim?

>aren't really interested in investing much more into the 3DS
This is just raw speculation. People ITT who want to downgrade might have bought the game they're now going to pirate. Without getting too moralfaggy, you see my point, right?
>>
>>323519939
okay, since my "real" 3DS is on 9.2, I should be fine then.

Hey guys I am trying to Downgrade the 10.3 3ds but sysupdater keeps freezing on the black screen what do guys?

>>323520202

Retarded questions are what we do here.

No, Nintendo can't patch your browser without notifying you first and then you can just hit cancel.

If there's no cancel option you can turn off the wifi.

If there's no wifi option you can turn the device off.

If the device off-turning doesn't work you can rip out the battery.

If you can't get to the battery in time you can throw the device out a window.

What I mean is, you're fine as long as you don't touch 10.4 willingly.

Food for though, why did they make the 3ds region locked when the previous iterations were region free plus the PS4 and Xbone are region free as well?

If they made the games region free and added an option english option to their japanese games rather than do a complete piss poor localization job by handing it to companies 8-4 and the like who are harming the artistic value of the game.

Then you have a leg to stand on... but in this case none of this is happening besides on the PS4 so no. I don't care if people are harming the sales of the 3DS, the Wii U or Nintendo in general. They are censoring their own games for no apparent reason but to appease a certain crowd when back in 2012-2013 Nintendo announced on e3 "we are for the hardcore gamers" well that promise was out the window.

Normies are never going to hack their 3ds and the tools we have right now aren't even that accessible. To be fair I'd even be surprised if people outside of 4chan/gbatemp even knew you could hack your 3ds.
That said, people installing cfw must account for a microscopic part of Nintendo's buyers. Furthermore the 3ds is a dying console so I don't even feel that bad
>>
>>323520362

I don't have any favorite niche series on the 3DS that I want to get sales. I think that the whole process of downgrading is so arcane and dangerous to the average 3DS user that the numbers are just too small to matter. If the small number of sales "lost" from the users in this thread kill a game, then the game was already doomed to begin with.

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.
>>
>>323521425

Nintendo probably won't cry over a few thousand sales lost to piracy.

But most games on the 3DS are not MADE by Nintendo. They're published by Nintendo, sure, but not made by them.

And it's the makers that suffer when one Anon converts another Anon to piracy.
>>
>>323522127
Do I essentially need double the space of the cia file in order to have room to install the games?
>>
>>323518424
anon, i'm one of the guys that was helped out and now plays free games

you didn't lose anything by helping me hack my system: i have an 3ds from a rich friend, he gifted it to me in august 2015 because he got bored of it

the console had only pokemon y and persona q, and i couldn't afford buying games for it (salary here is 300 euros while games cost 60)

nintendo didn't lose any money because i had nothing to give to begin with

im playing etrian odysey and stella glow right now and i enjoy them... games on nintendo systems are the only games that are fun anymore...

anon i'm sure most people who could afford buying games wouldn't bother with the hacking process and the risks (even though i found it fun)
>>
>>323521519

Wait for installer >>323517824
>>
So I'm thinking of buying a N3DS or N3DSXL to try this. How long do you guys think this hack will remain viable? And will it still work with newer games?

Also, should I get the regular or XL N3DS?
>>
>>323521990
You pirate Nintendo games to support the competitors? You know that you could buy used if you wanted Nintendo to not get your money, right?

At least be honest and admit that you don't like what Nintendo is doing and don't feel bad about playing free vidya at their expense.
>>
>>323522180

Still have to buy the 3DS hardware mate and buying software which they "localized" over here still means you support what they are doing.

Your saying vote for your wallets. I have by buy the 3DS hardware system. If they don't bring the games in the current format like what the fans done in Fire Emblem Fates, well why don't Nintendo do the sensible thing?

Why not hire the group that already fan translated the game similar what SE done with FF-0.
>>
>>323522215

3DS hardware sales matter to Nintendo. They made the box. Software sales less so.

Square Enix's software sales matter to Square because they made Bravely Default. Hardware sales less so, because they didn't make the box.

Nintendo won the second you bought a 3DS. Square Enix still needs to win, and can't do it with Anon's converting each other to piracy.

Ironhax is not for 9.3 I believe. Menuhax breaks when changing the theme and probably after downgrading. Use browserhax to get it back.
>>
Sorry if the question sounds stupid but I haven't been following much the 3DS hack progression recently.

O3DS in 6.1 here, worth upgrading to 10.3 for the easy peasy installer? I used to have rxTools on it but I needed the memory card for something else and now It looks like a vanilla 6.1. I remember the cfw set up process to be a pain in the ass and it required to go on a website to launch the Emunand every time I booted the console. Are there better alternatives now?
>>
>>323522936

That's not the reason. My shit works fine, and I got that message with every transfer to my card.

It's a scary-ass message though, right?
>>
>>323522581

probably 50 bucks on 200 to 1 odds if I was a betting man.

But lets take for example the Fire Emblem Fates and Awakening now.

Awakening sales went through the roof cause there was no "hacked" 3DS, also they censored the game.

Fire Emblem Fates they are gonna do the same thing but this time, there's already a fan group which bet them to the punch and already translated lets say 3/4 of the game which is in less time than what 8-4 did.

Now if people start playing the Fire Emblem fates over the 8-4 dub I wonder what this would entail and if Nintendo have any fucking sense whatsoever they would hire the fantranslator similar to what SE done with FF-type 0 fantranslation.
>>
>>323523043
Wait, what do you mean? I'm on 9.2, and I'm not using Ironhax.
>>
>>323523089

Yeah, be quick though. 10.3 will not be available once Nintendo launches 10.4 which will happen very soon.

Then just wait a few hours for the installer to leave closed-beta and download it.
>>
>>323522897

Yes, since i don't want to invest anythign in getting them and some people are kind enough to actually buy and rip the games for people like me
>>
>>323523195

And you think the people who buy and rip games will be more likely to do so now that they can sit on their hands and wait?
>>
>>323522180
>not pirating games and buying the ones that you think the company has earned your money
>not pirating and using translation patches and buying the jap version of censored games
>>
>>323520685
It's because the SD card needs to be a a certain format and a the emunand takes like 2gb of the sd card that you can't copy and paste.

It will work. But now is not a clever time to do so. There's an installer on the way by the people who found the original exploit. It'll be out in a few hours, and it will save you hours of downgrading, tutorials, workarounds and broken links.

Plz send help, I followed this guide: http://pastebin.com/QhDq5iyW

So I finally updated to RX10.3 and everything but now all my games got lost because I fucked up one step and formated emunand back then, I have the files but how do I restore them? I noticed these 4 files have all the data (over 12gb), so what can I do? Do I really have to install all the cias over again? If so, where are located the save datas?
>>
>>323523846

The point is to achieve things you cannot do on 10.3. Which is why we downgrade. Keeping a downgraded version around without CFW is pointless. It's just a slightly worse 3DS than a 10.3 3DS.
>>
>>323523925
Wait for the installer. It'll make everything easy as shit. Make sure to update to 10.3 before the big N release 10.4 though.

>>323524631
You don't need either. The installer will just ask you to remove them before beginning anyway.

They promise that all you need is a (their words) "as clean as possible" 10.3.

>>323517824
What the fuck, so I have to update and the downgrade again with this? Can I just chill with 9.2 and install cfw the hard way? I don't think I'll even manage to update before 10.4 hits desu.

Well 10.4 won't hit until 12 at night if Nintendo stick with their usual regime.

And of course you CAN just chill, but the hard way carries some fun RNG and brick-potential.

>>323524856

If you already had ironhax/menuhax on 9.9 you dont even have to update, it's mainly for browserhax users

So if I'm too stupid to even follow the retard guide correctly, is it better to update back to 10.3 and wait for the installer at this point?

You should be fine with sliderhax since it works on anything below 10.3 if I'm not mistaken. But if you're worried for the sake of consistency you could always update anyway. 10.3 is cracked right open, so even if it's not necessary the only downside is wasted time.

But my main question is: Since I'm already at 9.2.0-20, does this time limit apply to me? Can I just do all this shit tomorrow or later this week, when I'm not tired, and not worry about missing out?

Come on m8.
Get to installing menuhax.
By far the easiest way to launch cakes or rXtools without all the hassle of opening the browser and going to the site.

>>323527478
Yup.

Since 9.9. This is why people are flipping their shit and saying to do this ASAP: when 10.4 comes out, and if you either softbrick or are above 9.8, you're shit out of luck.

>>323527485
I think you're going to be alright here, but I'm not quite sure myself. If I were you, I would at least create your emunand and install CFW before the maintenance time tomorrow. You've got until 5pm pacific time, so you've got time to sleep.

And hell, 10.4 is all speculation at this point. It hasn't been explicitly stated that this is the purpose of that maintenance, but the timing was just too convenient for it not to be.

Well, it's good to have menuhax set up before you downgrade.

That way, you can open sysupdater easily and retry and retry and retry until it works without having to deal with opening the web broswer every single time.

>>323518195
Say what you will about everyone else, but I plan on purchasing another 3DS anyway. I want a New 3DS but not xl and NOA decided that we can't have any without importing a region locked console. I 'hacked' my 3DS so I could consolidate all of my games onto internal memory and not have to worry about carrying around a cartridge. I otherwise would not even be playing my 3DS without this and I probably would have sold it. When I hacked it, I downloaded a shit ton of games at least a year ago that I have yet to play anyway. I doubt I will ever play them and I certainly would have never bought them.

There are some games that are impossible to get otherwise without pirating.

Also, the amount of people pirating versus the amount of people buying the games is still pretty minor. By the time most people hear of this hack they will have already updated to 10.4.

And one more thing: it may surprise you, but most people doing this are not that bright. There are a (well there were) a decent amount of bricks because people couldn't be assed to read the instructions at least once or download the proper files for their version of 3DS. I'm sure that at least some of these people bought a new 3ds because of that.

What? So it doesn't even make a difference if you're already on 9.2. I thought you meant you wouldn't be able to use it on sysNAND.

I bet a new version of the downgrader will come out anyway. Nintendo seems really bad at this shit. How in the fuck can they still not detect pirated cias?

I got all this set up in about 4 or so hours.

Protip: If you're on a regular 3ds (3ds, 3ds xl, 2ds) sysupdater has a way higher chance of working

Yup, you want menuhax loader.
Make sure you go to configure and set it so that menuhax loads only when you press a certain button as you turn on your ds.

Do that after you install it.

Oh, and if it gives you an error the first time, turn off your ds, go to the themes thing, open it, let it create the data, and then DON'T CHANGE IT. LEAVE IT ALONE.

Then re-open broswerhax, re-load homebrew, and install menuhax

Okay guys this isn't a dumb question like usual.

Planning on buying a n3ds this Tuesday or Wednesday. It probably will be on something lower than 10.3. If I immediately block Nintendo's update servers, can I use an exploit to downgrade to 9.2 from say, 9.6? Also, if it's already on 10.3, could we use smealum's dns so I could open the browser without the update alert?

This is all assuming Nintendo patches it soon.

Get menuhax so you can get to homebrew without needing the web browser.

DO NOT CHANGE THE HOME THEME ONCE YOU HAVE IT INSTALLED, YOU WILL FUCK UP MENUHAX AND IT WON'T WORK AFTER.

Well it isn't out yet, so I can't argue that it's a BETTER idea, but I'm pretty sure it'll be a SAFER idea. Meaning no chance to brick, and higher chance that everything will work perfectly.

It'll take you a lot less time and a lot less can go wrong, so maybe "better" is the correct word.

sorry for being late to the party but is 3DS fully hackable now? I can now play pirated games to it?

if yes, let's say I buy a 3DS tomorrow, how do I check if its 9.2 or 10.3? Will I be able to ask the store or see in the box if its 9.2 or 10.3?

Help! and thanks!
>>
>>323530639
Like >>323524794 said, they expect you to be as vanilla as possible. So the less modification the better. A clean update to 10.3 and a formatted (with backup of your shit of course) 3DS is probably as clean as you'll need to be.
>>
>>323530761
Agreed.

Read over the 3DS downgrade and CFW install guide and it didn't seem that bad, but N3DS is apparently different, a bunch of variables to delete/rename/install and it's just a gigantic clusterfuck at the moment.

>>323531084

It's cool, it's new tech anyway. You won't need to downgrade when you have the installer.

The installer will take care of that for you.

As to why you need to downgrade at all it's because it supports CFW, which will let you run code Nintendo otherwise wouldn't allow and emulate and pirate and shit.

>>
>>323531098

I'm just speaking from what I've read, so I can't give you any 100% guarantee that the gbatemp installer will work. All that's essentially confirmed is what it will do and that it works in 10.3.

A guide will leave room for human error. An installer won't. I'd advice the installer.

And it'll be out in a few hours so you have nothing to lose by waiting.

Based on the fact that it'll be a 3-click installer I'm guessing it'll have one step where you pick region, NA, EU or JAP. One step where you specify if you want to create a backup or not, and one step to be "sure you want to start".

Honestly, when the installer comes out I doubt even a braindead sheep would NEED a guide.

The installer is said to be retard-proof beyond reason. It'll probably have like, 2 buttons in all.

Yes it will. However you can backup your saves and shit by storing everything on your SD card, so you can restore them when you're on 10.3 or when you're back from the installer's instructions.

It's a fine line between "functional enough to do what we want" and "too restrictive to allow what we want".

No guides.

Frankly, I don't know if it's pure luck, but it definitely wasn't working for me either when I set it to type2, it just loops when CTR tries to autoboot into rxtools. So I reverted back to the default trigger method which is holding the L button when booting up.

Tried to boot it again with type2 today after updating my emunand to 10.3 and it somehow worked this time, so I'm not sure what happened. You can try, but just be sure not to accidentally update your sysnand.

Yes. You can (and very easily might) brick with CFW. You're messing with the kernel. A missing semi-colon at the end of a line of code by some almost-asleep programmer can be all it takes. RNG-hell awaits.

The good news is that there is an installer on the way by the same folks who initially found and exploited the current exploit. See >>323517824

Any idea when nintendo will patch shit tomorrow? Won't be able to try to downgrade until maybe 12 tomorrow, so I'm hoping they don't do it near then.

I feel like the update will just patch the browser exploits. Haven't cia installers been a thing for many updates now? Updates still haven't affected custom cia installs.

I'm sure it will all still work as long as your system is already hacked before updating. If not then you will still be able to restore an emuNAND backup that you made while on 10.3
