3DS Hacking: Help retards edition
So this fucking link is broken, and the mirror I used is causing me an error saying it failed to load Native Firm: 4.
Can someone upload they're rxtools folder for me to use
There was an anon in the other thread helping people out, thanks for that.
I'm sitting on 9.2 just got off that fucking downgrading ride and now Im not sure on what to do.
Should I do cfw now or wait for the supposed childproof installer coming "soon"?
Alright im on the rtxtools part of this guide http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
I'm on the booting rtxtools for the first time but it installed some files and then went back to home screen.
On the fourth try it just froze on select and now I have no idea what to do, please help.
Ay, is this true?
Is he just talking out his ass? I hope not.
so i have the browserhax thing installed. I can boot into the homebrew menu by holding down L on start up.
now im trying to do the downgrade
i have the 9.2 update and the files for the sysUpdater in their respected files on the SD card.
now everytime i try running the updater icon in the homebrew browser, it just goes to a black screen.
is this normal? it took me a few tries to get the browser to install but I guess that whole freezing thing until it goes was a normal thing.
I hate this, truly do this is some really stressful stuff
Going to follow a guide that says the next I should do is emunand stuff and the rxtools...
That's what we're talking about now
It's a maybe at this point but I'm trying not to be hopeful
>mfw i was at vanilla 9.2 and i updated to 10.3 because anons were telling me about the installer
Fuck i hate myself.
If I unlink my NNID, downgrade to 9.2 and get everything setup, will I still be able to link my NNID back up the EmuNAND or something, as in, will it still think my 3DS is the same hardware after fucking around with it?
OP, your issue can be fixed by using a link on a gbatemp thread, an all around tutorial. It's a dl for rx tools thats used for black screens and such, but it fixes this as well
ok, took me like 10 tries. its finally doing something now. wish me luck.
i heard theres issues of the 3ds no rebooting automatically after the downgrade which leaves your 3ds in a semi-bricked state.
Im gonna take my chances with the installer. seems like everyone in the other thread was hopeful about it. if this doesnt work then no harm done i barely play the damn thing anyways.
How the fuck do I know if I'm on sysnand or emunand?
I don't know if rtxtol is working, I used it on the launch thing, it installed and then it went to home menu, any further attempts to use it goes to 3DS home menu.
I can't tell if I'm fucked or what.
That guide says I have to do other crap after I enter rtx.
I was following this guide http://pastebin.com/6BBug6nD and completely skipped over the FBI injection stuff till I got to installing BBM. I went back and successfully installed FBI and was able to get it to BBM to work. Downloaded Paper Jam and was able to play it.
Everything seems to be working, but is installing FBI after separating my nands and updating my emunand to 10.3 going to bite me on the ass later on?
>saw the PANIC threads about the update today to 10.4
>figure what the hell i've gotten my 180~ dollars out of my n3ds up until now, might as well give it a shot and if it bricks i can just get a new one
>it works flawlessly other than getting memchunkx to boot properly
>currently getting rxtools working and its all great
>see all these anons following random pastebins and fumbling around
>people bricking their systems from doing stupid shit
feels good not to be a moron
good luck out there anons, if i did it, you can too
What guide did you follow anon, links and all and was it for a new3ds since i am fucking tired of fucking unreliable directions i even went as far to recently upgrade to 10.3, in the prospects of that infamous installer, and now i fell like i fucked up.
Did you unlink them yet? If not go into settings, you should have RX-E instead of ver.
Note if you exit out of the menu you will be in sysnand.
If not it would be helpful to know what line you are on.
>implying it's illegal
homebrew is 100% legal anon
ok, finally downgraded to 9.2.
now menuhax doesnt work and i cant get into the homebrew launcher (from holding down L from bootup).
am i missing something here? it was working fine before the downgrade. (i was at 10.3)
Man i dont even know. Everyone was talking about it in the other thread but now i have no fucking clue. im just considering doing all this the hardway by downgrading and doing everything step by step. but im still holding out for a installer.
dont hold out for the installer anon, do it yourself. makes for a much better understanding of the process and you'll learn how and why certain apps do what they do, which is important if you ever need to troubleshoot yourself in the future. for example
anon would know that menuhax stops working if you change themes, because it uses shufflehax which is an exploit based on the theme-shuffle management information, which immediately breaks when a theme is changed, or in this case reverted due to the downgrade
I was in your spot like 6 hours ago.
Follow this guide
DO EVERYTHING IT SAYS (Obviously skip the step about downgrading)
Once you finish all that go to
To get CIA files and install them with FBI. The downloads on this site take fucking years but they're legit, AND they have everything, even fire Emblem fates which isn't out in the US
>dump NAND.bin at least once to make sure you always have somewhere to go back to
>dump EmuNAND.bin to make sure you always have somewhere to go back to
It takes 15 minutes but it makes you brick-proof!
so my new3dsxl is finally on 9.2 and has menuhax. nothing more. no cfw yet.
it has a 32gb currently in it, but ill be a purchasing a 64gb later today.
is it safe to first pop in the 64gb (with a copy of everything that was on the 32gb on it) THEN proceed with installing custom firmware? or will i still have to go through that partitioning software shit?
i assume i can, seeing as how its pretty much just a normal firmware 3ds at the moment, right?
If you unlinked the two what I found to be helpful is have two different home menu themes for each boot. I have the basic theme for sysnand and I have the blue theme for when I'm in emunand. You should 100% unlink the two, follow that guideyou posted. its perfect
Is that for old3ds anon or it also goes for the new3ds?.
That is something i was just wondering since, i am in a new3ds which goes with microsd cards, if a 64gb would be compatible ( particularly this one a 64 Gb Micro Sdhc Sandisk Extreme Class 10 )
How can I tell if I'm unlinked?
How can I go about becoming so if I'm not?
guys im stuck. I downgraded did a nand backup and everything now im trying to launch rxTools. but CTRBootmanager isnt working (I press L on boot and it just goes to the homebrew app) so I cant launch RX....what do i do? I heard something about doing it through the browser but Im not sure....help I have the o3DS
>Downgrade MSET via rxtools options
>Execute profile explot via browser
>Screen flash pixelated indicating done
>Boot DS profile in system settings
>Nothing, just my 3DS card that says "YS:/rxTools.dat"
I can make everything work but I can't get MSET exploit to work. I hate booting rxTools using the app or an internet connection. FUCK. I've been at this ever since rxTools came out.
>realized that the library is boring and terrible compared to the DS
sadly true, though there are still a lot of good titles
if you havent already played them, the zelda games, the new ones too not just the remakes
project mirai if youre a weeabo
there's a lot of good eshop titles if your willing to wade through some shovelware, and there's a good amount of jap-only stuff that's been patched for english, but you'll have to dig for it
Fuck, that's creepy. I was JUST there. I don't know exactly why it happens, but take a picture of this QR code while being connected to the internet. It'll throw you back in.
WHAT THE FUCK.
I had gotten my emuNAND all set up and shit, unlinked with sysNAND and such. I update the emuNAND to 10.3. Woohoo, it worked. Remove SD card to install BigBlueMenu. Try booting while holding L. Nothing happens, goes to sysNAND. Try again. Nope. Check settings.
What the fuck. What do I do from here? Do I just have to start all over?
This is the 4th person ITT this has happened with. I wonder if Nintendo is fucking with something on their end?
Either way, do what >>323541917 said. Once you're back in it'll work as normal.
Make a folder in EmuNand home menu. Boot into sysnand. Is the folder you made in EmuNand present in sysnand? Your shit is linked. No? You're good.
Now I need someone to help me with this. ;_;
If I delete rxtools and replace it with another rxtools folder (With all necassary files obviously) will my emunand be safe, or is it directly linked with rxtools?
If you want to be safe, Google the EmuNand tool and make a backup. If you ever fuck up, you can just inject it again.
Also, no, rxtools isn't linked with your EmuNand.
Alright heres the deal and someone help me with this. I have a 4gb card and its at 10.3 vanilla. Now if i follow the retard guide EXACTLY and i manage to not fuck it up can i buy a bigger SD card tomorrow and copy paste all my shit from the 4gb card to the 32 card and i wont have to do any more steps? updating was a mistake but at least i can fix it.
For whatever reason it doesn't work very well, I think the specific SD card is formatted to work with the specific DS or something, because i tried that very think today and it didn't work. I had to go through the whole process again with a new card.
Side note, in case you decide to go for a 64gb instead of 32gb, you would have to format it to FAT32. That happened to me and it took me three hours to figure out.
So just copy whats already on my 32gb over to the 64gb and proceed as normal with installing cfw and making an emunand?
Isnt there a new method releasing soon for new3ds? I couldve sworn i read that somewhere.
It will work, kinda, but there are extra steps. If you want to avoid extra steps, downgrade to 9.2 but don't set up EmuNand until you get the new card. Then you can just copy and paste everything to the new cars and proceed with EmuNand setup.
If you wanna be totally safe and 100% finish hacking with a transfer later, you're going to need the EmuNand tool to backup your EmuNand and inject it into your new SD card along with your files.
It isn't hard, but it is a couple of extra steps. So long as you're properly saving your backup, at worst you just fuck up the first time and have restore points to try again with.
Thanks but the link is just sending me to the homebew launcher. I can do that just fine by pressing L on boot. What Im trying to do is launch rxTools but I cant find a way to. Im stuck on step 18 of the retard guide dont know what Im doing wrong. I did the SD backup and renamed the boot.3dsx to brew and replaced that boot with the original one....
>yfw downgrade goes smooth
Scary part's over, easy street from here on out.
>Tfw too scared to do it
now it's too late
fuck I hate being a little bitch sometimes
You're definitely using the wrong boot file if it brings up homebrew launcher when you hold L. Holding L literally reads for that boot file and launches it. If the file is Rxtools, it will launch that. It won't magically load Homebrew launcher if the boot file isn't homebrew launcher. That's like copening Firefox.exe and R@ygoldsGreatestHits.mp4 opens up instead.
Somewhere along the lines you probably mixed your copypasta up. Restart with clean freshly downloaded files to copy and paste with.
You need to install homebrew before even downgrading. If you want to hold off on setting up the hack completely until you get your new card but make sure your 3DS is in the safe firmware zone from Nintendo's hands, follow that guide but don't proceed to step C. If you want to be 200% safe that you complete the hack before the patch tomorrow, then do the whole guide but back everything up.
Keep in mind that creating an EmuNand will shrink your card's filesize caus it's making a new partition on it. Some people fuck their selves over by having almost full SD cards and are unable to drop all their files back onto it when they set their EmuNand up. It's a fixable issue, but a little bit of a pain.
so now that i have everything done and installed, i've got rxtools booting through menuhax taking me to emunand on boot, which is great, everything is peachy with that, can i upgrade my sysnand because its unlinked? would that fuck anything up? can i do the same for emunand? is that all kosher? i guess the only thing i dont know how to handle at this point is updating things or not
so should i delete everything from the SD card before trying this? im doing the hack tonight so i dont fuck myself over tomorrow. its 3 am but i stay up till 7 most nights anyways. is the 10.4 update rolling out mandatory?
Make sure your unlinked. Just having Rxtools booting into EmuNand doesn't mean you're unlinked. Create a folder in EmuNand and see if it transfers over to sysnand. If it doesn't, you're good to update EmuNand.
Am I doing something wrong? Following the retard guide, and whenever I go to yls8, I get yellow, then grey and freezing. Then goes quickly to white, green, blue w/ a black screen and writing on the top one, and then red bottom/black top and nothing happens.
Shit's been like this every time I've tried. On 10.3
You never have to delete anything.the only time things delete is when you set up EmuNand and have to format the SD (in which case you're making a backup of it anyway)
yep, all straight. so is that a yes on the updating sysnand would fuck shit up? i suppose what im asking is there something that i shouldnt do now that everything is working perfectly
Oh, I misread your first post.
Updating sysnand will ruin your shit. The whole point of EmuNand is so that you don't have to touch your sysnand, which will ruin your shit up the ass. EmuNand is the only thing you want to touch. Once it's properly set up, avoid sysnand like the fucking plague.
Yes, but you may get an error. If you get an error, there's a guide for fixing it. I forgot the exact steps, but I think it has to do with backing up your EmuNand, formatting it, and then injecting your backup.
Also, font fucking link your sysnand and EmuNand to the same NNID. It bugs out like crazy and probably sends red flags to Nintendo for future bannings.
So, I've tried like three different guides now, and every time, I can't get any farther than downgrading to 9.2 because once I do, Menuhax stops working, and Browserhax just crashes back to the home screen. Help?
so im follwing the retard guide and i cant make a backup of my SD card because it says "it cannot me performed because of an I/O error 000000000.app or some shit.
>follow the retard guide
>no problem what so ever except the times I didn't read well because 2 am and a small thing the guide didn't explained.
>currently playing dual destinies, a game I wanted to play since release but couldn't get because region bullshit and because Nintendo is 10 years behind everyone else.
I love you bros.
>currently n3ds pirated masterace
>mfw all the games i wanred were overpriced, playan them now on a long bus trip
> mfw when all my friends said that I was going to brick it and now they are jelly as fuck
m not sure im following this correctly, if you unlink nands you have to format sys memory witch will delete all the shit on your sysnand right? dosent that mean you will lose access to the games you had on before like eshop titles or am i just retarded and you can access them in your emunand?
It's regarded as one of the best Tales game aside from symphonia. I loved it. Also the first Tales game they've ever experimented with Free Run instead of being stuck with the linear system.
OK, so help a retard out. I can't install FBI properly because the only way into homebrew I have is browserhax and I can't use browserhax twice apparently. Menuhax doesn't work since downgrading, so how do I go about getting to the homebrew launcher twice?
Clear your browser cookies/history, go to the browserhax page again, be sure to zoom all the way in with the browser controls, and tap the very far left corner of the slider
>Failed to get CIA file info!
I've been trying for 5 hours help
>mfw i just successfully downgraded my 3ds
Feels good man. Feels real good.
Does anyone have any trouble with getting the system update in menuhax? I don't see the option for it anywhere, I've benn following this guide:
I'm in part b step 8) and there just isn't a "system update" option in my menuhax
ok so when i turn on the 3ds and hold L it opens in ctrbootmanager, but when i try to use rxtools it just takes me to the 3ds home menu, ivetried holding L like retard guide says and ive trired launching wth A and niether takes me to rxtools menu, did i miss something?
>got downgraded, emunand installed and unlinked
>emunand just finished updating to 10.3
>das it mane
I am fucking set now, niggas. A whole new world of software before me to explore.
That's the one main issue about the browserhax. It works only like 10% of the time after the first time.
It took me like 12 times before it worked for me the 2nd and third time i had to reinstall it. Pain in the ass, but keep trying. Clear all browser settings and restart 3ds before trying again.
Clearing browser and restarting my 3ds is what worked for me the 2nd and 3rd time I had to reinstall the menuhax.
Donno if it will work for you but it's worth a try. It's not like you lose anything from trying it.
Alright I have a brand new N3DSXL coming later today so I will miss the windows likely.
How do I preserve my system on 10.3 and avoid forced updates? Can I still play smash while I wait for new exploits or am I fucked either way?
I think I just realized something, the pasta/minipasta CFW should show up as your firmware version in settings after you apply it, right? IT doesn't show up for either. I guess the patches aren't working. This is a result of an "imcomplete downgrade", right? I've downgraded 3 times and it still does this. Jesus, I haven't seen anyone else have this much of a problem.
Ok i downgraded my 3ds to 9.2 and i backed up my SD card. Im getting a bigger one tomorrow isntead of a 4 gb its gonna be a 32 gb. Will i be able to do the rest of the steps on the new SD card?
the best thing about deleting game .cia is that it only deletes the game and keeps the dlc and savefiles intact, at least wen i use fbi
I don't know what B and C are but you should be fine. Since Menuhax is present you will have the ability to cold boot into rxTools, allowing you to skip using the Internet Browser.
ask /vg/ I think you're fine as long as you don't have an emunand yet. Apparently all having an emunand does is add a few steps to transfering everything over anyway.
You sure? Under what method? Because I listened to some anon saying I should use tinyformat and that went horribly wrong. Because I used it on emunand and lost all the games installed and could not recover them unless I installed everyhing again.
Care to help me?
You could either wait for the installer that's apparently being worked on or if you don't want to risk it, go ahead and create your emuNAND. Otherwise you may end up stuck in the spot you're in until things are worked out because you'll need the Internet browser for emuNAND install and the new update will block browser use.
Iv been trying for hours to get Coldboot Rxtools
Browserhax to Menuhax - Inside Menuhax set it to autoboot - Switch the boot.3dsx with Rxtools - Rxtools folder should have firmware.bin in firm - And the sw25.bin in root -
All I get is once I boot my 3DS is
Menuhax-CTWLoader - Rxtools - Blackscreen
Anyone got any idea what I might be doing wrong?
I changed theme to remove menuhax from emunand and my nands are unlinked
Okay, sorry for the more questions but its sorta hard to get answer like this.
After you do that on the 9.2 fw old3ds I suppose, do I need to reinstall something ? Like tge menuhax again or change anything?
> mfw all the retards asking for a installer were too stupid to follow a simple pastebin step by step guide
if anything, im glad i waited until someone wrote that retard guide.
when i first attempted to do this, i had to jump from like 5 different pastebins which made it confusing.
retard guide is literally all that you need.
Cakes is telling me it can't find the FIRM.
Cakes folder looks like this.
Do I just rename n3dsfirmware.bin to just firmware.bin?
Ok i just downgraded to 9.2, i'm safe from nintendo updating now? or should i install menuhax first with browser hax. I only have a 4gb card so i'm thinking about waiting until the 32gb one arrives.
>Ironhax, Menuhax, and Cubehax installed
>can't get sys update to boot most of the time
>when it does it never finds the Cia files
>been trying since Thursday
It's too fucking late for me now isn't it?
This guide is also pretty good
I had no issues installing shit, and if you got a emuNAND backup, you're safe i guess
>All these people who can't follow simple instructions
I did it on the first try, losers.
So I heard there was a way to run DS flashcarts like, through a cia or something. Thing is, I have an old ass M3 Real and the only thing Google gives me back about this is some release by a dude whose English is so bad I can't understand what he's saying.
So, is this release cool? Will it work with any DS flashcart? No? "cia ds flashcart" in Google brings it up first result.
I don't see how that would be an issue.
As long as it's a N3DS you should be good with that guide.
Not sure about the process on O3DS but I think the only difference between original and new is the emuNAND version (old can update to 10.3, while new is stuck on 9.5 emuNAND)
ALSO HOW DO I DOWNLOAD AND PLAY GAMES
So coldbooting is actually just a shorthand for having menuhax autoload rxTools (Or another means of booting into emuNAND)?
So if I have set up ctrBootloader and have it autoboot rxTools unles instructed to do something else, I'm practically there? I always thought setting up coldbooting is something more "bulletproof"
Is there any way around menuhax at all? I'm asking because my impression is that menuhax seems to be a bit fragile. I haven't quite understood what it takes to break it, but I've read that switching themes is not a good idea.
I am still enormously cautios when dealing with my 3DS as there seem to be lots of variables that I don't fully understand yet.
Installing .cias and playing games works beautifully, but even something like updating my N3DS' emuNAND to 9.5 is something I'm not comfortable doing unless a game specifically needs it.
Ok, noob here, need some help.
Just downgraded my O3DSXL to 9.2.0-20E, but now I cant access to the menuhax.
Did the downgrade unistalled it? Do I have to install it again?
Another question, I have a 4GB SD, and I want to swap to a 16-32 GB SD. If I copy-paste all the files in my current SD to the new one before starting with the CFW, will I have any problem?
Is Sysloader supposed to be a billion times more bullshit on the New 3DS? The damn thing doesn't even load half the time. I swear it's spent more time on a blank black screen than actually crashing after not finding files. Is this a New 3DS only problem? How do I get sysloader to load better?
I'm just glad I got Homebrew working. I decided not to pirate anymore. Thanks to all the anons who are patiently helping people.
My first and foremost reason is I cannot take the fact that I might make a mistake and brick it. Second one is how random it is to downgrade and I have been trying to run the sysUpdater since Saturday.
you can update your emuNAND to the latest firmware and tear assholes online in absolutely any game with working servers.
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition still has people playing
only borderline-cheating I've seen is in street fighter where people spam the touchpad moves. on sm4sh it's been a ball except when you connect to people with terrible connections.
Okay, I dunno how this happened, but I can't access emunand without having to use browsehax now.
I had put CTRManager as the startup (Hold L while powering on). Now it just boots to sysnand even with holding L and I gotta use browsehax to get to CTRManager.
Bah! I'm still nervous on either to unlink my sysnand from emunand and just leave it as it is. Anon said to just take out the memory and format the sysnand and put the memory back in, but u need to know more than that. If I have to do some installing or if I'll lose my friend codes in emunand or have to reinstall .cias in there
So I installed RXtools and finally got into emuNAND finally. I cloned sysNAND to emuNAND since FBI and BBM was installed there. When I unwrap the gifts in emuNANd all I get is black sqaures and when I try to use them I get stuck on the 3DS loading screen. How do I fix this?
You new emuNAND will be completely naked. So you'll have to reinstall all .cias and do some pretty hardcore bullshit to get your NNID hooked up.
I did it for the dank custom skins, totally worth it in my books.
2DS. If I left it in sleep mode for more than about 5 seconds it just shows a black screen and I have to restart.
I would hack the n3ds but imouto is stingy on that since it's her Christmas gift.
Get back down to 9.2 quick bitch boy, browserhax won't work when 10.4 comes out even if you're on 10.3 due to the browsers locking you out if you're not on the latest firmware (which was introduced in 9.9)
Anon I'm a retard with computers and that sounds like moonspeak to me.
Is that a process that will let me fit FE along with all this bullshit on an 8 gb card?
>You new emuNAND will be completely naked. So you'll have to reinstall all .cias and do some pretty hardcore bullshit to get your NNID hooked up.
That's only for retards who failed to copy their entire sd card to pc before installing emuNAND and then copy it back to SD card after finishing installing emuNAND.
I got this far on my own and I'm damn proud of myself for it
- circument region locks
- play fanlations
- unlock n3ds horse-power for o3ds games
- sense of actually owning the device you bought
Not gonna pretend piracy isn't the driving force for most people, but there *are* legitimate reasons
You're saying that like I already didn't just admit it
but hurt me more senpai
You can still do what
said. It all depends on what you're most comfortable with.
For burning an image of your old card, all you really need is Win32DiskImager to read and write the image and then some partitioning tool like Partition Wizard.
With half a brain and working eyes, it's really just a few clicks. And it's just "hard" because it's the first time you're doing it.
You seem to know whats up. Is this what I should do?
>Copy SD card to PC
>use emunand tool to extract my emunand
>format my sysnand without the memory card in
>put memory card back
Or what I do right?
Have white theme with HUGE icons in sysnand.
While in emunand setup any other theme and set icons to be small. That's how you will definitely know when you're in the correct nand.
So, does it really just take a shit ton of tries? I'm on a 10.1 something iirc, and SysUpdater freezes before any steps are even shown, doesn't even get to text sometimes. Do I need to have a lot of free space on my SD?
God fucking damnit.
I downgraded and now for some retarded reason I can't access any menuhax. Using the retard guide, but it doesn't mention anything about it.
I've been trying the browserhax for like an hour with no effect.
If that's the case then just keep trying
spent all day getting this working only to realize theres nothing i even want to pirate and you have to download cia files in 20 pieces from file gator and every game takes 20+ minutes to install and half of them dont work.
That's what worked for me. I converted Bravely Default EUR from 3ds to cia with it.
You just need to copy a file to your 3ds and generate some keys, which you copy back to your machine. Then it should work just fine
default theme, go to your internet browser and delete history and cookies. Then Initialize saved data. Exit and enter internet browser. Turn off 3ds, turn it on and scan qr code. Takes you to a page and what you want to do is enlarge it to makes and scroll the page to the top left. There should be a slider thing, click on the right side of slider. It should boot browserhax.
Okay, I wanna make sure I get this completely right.
When this https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-more-or-less-catch-all-tutorial.407080/ says "Put your RXTools folder in your SD card's root" what folder is that?
My download of RXTools goes rxTools-83afbb6\release\ then four other folders, mset, ninjhax, rxTools and tools. Am I just taking the rxTools folder from the downloaded release folder or should I rename the release folder to rxTools and put that in? I wish these guides were more clear about the stuff these downloads contained.
Give it to me gay, /v/. If im careful and casually install .cia on my emunand while being linked, will I be fine? So far it hasn't done nothing on my sysnand and I now never even go on sysnand
Ah, I did something else now and it seems to work. I am on 9.2
Was just curious if it HAD to be the right side, since I would be pretty mad if that were to be the cause for all the earlier failed attempts
So I've got emunand all installed but menuhax broke. I keep getting the red screen of death whenever I try to enter the homebrew channel from the launcher that lets me go into rxtools.
What am I doing wrong here? Do I need to revert the 3dsboot file to the old one to get into the homebrew channel or?
This is literally the last step I need to get done so that I can hop into homebrew quickly w/o the exploit. Hopefully someone else has had the issue and can help a bro out.
To unlink you format your 3DS
So that means losing access to all existing content on either your sysnand or emunand. Decide which.
If you want to format sysnand, either format it the normal way in system settings with the SD card out.
If you want to format emunand, install a CIA of tinyformat and run it on emunand
If you only ever install shit to emunand, you're good
You can't really brick anything by doing this. Worst case scenario is that you brick emunand, lose saves and have to start a new emunand from scratch.
But the backup can fix that, right? Sorry if I sound irritated but is tha I've had horrible luck in unlinking and dealing with the NNID so I lefted as linked again with a old backup. I don't mind the no theme on emunand so.
SaveDataFiler is a .cia application. You install it and it appears on your home menu as if it were a game.
This guide is designed for Gateway, but from part 13 onwards it's the same as CFW w/ legit carts.
Game IDs for CIA games should be available on 3dsdb
If you have a backed-up emunand, then you can restore that.
Any CIAs you installed since making the backup will need to be reinstalled. It'll only take 5 seconds because the majority of game data will still be on the SD card.
I've never bricked a NAND by installing bad CIAs BTW, and I've installed a shitload of junk.
I've got an o3ds and just got it downgraded to 9.2 and set up emunand last night. I've hacked my wii, psp, with crazy shit like this before but I wanted to make sure I have it to where I can still tinker with it once the new update rolls out. Everything about hacking the 3ds right now is fragmented as fuck so I want to make sure I'm not missing anything vital.
But what will happen to the friends I added on my emunand? Will they be deleted because of the sysnand formating? (Since they share the same id?) And after sysnand is formated and I put my sd card back in, will the menuhac work as always or do I need to browserhax the menuhax again?
Okay, now I'm clear on that. Thanks
Hm. Thing is, I'm trying to get my progress from Triforce Heroes cartridge to CIA. I've been following the tutorial, but when I start the CIA, it acts like there's no savedata.
And HANS hangs on yellow screen if I try to start the cart.
Correct, that's installed with the right TMD and everything per the guide. Now to update it to 10.3 do I snag the update file off of the megaupload repository or update it through nintendo? I'm assuming megaupload and do it how I did the downgrade, no?
Some CFW like cakes don't region free by themselves. The CIA has to be patched for it, or you have to load a different CFW like rxTools or NTR
You need to extract the savedata from the cart with savedatafiler and then import it to the CIA as well
Load H&S once in rxTools just to check if it works.
Either you can download a 10.3 update with 3DNUS and install all the CIAs or you can just use the built in system update function.
Yep everything is golden. I've just got it up to 10.3 now and will look into getting games later. I've got a job interview in a couple hours so I have to get started on that. Thanks again for you help anon.
Not being rude, searching.
Different sites, forums, and mirrors.
Here? I doubt.
On 3DS, only with flashcard.
I've now bricked my emuNand updating my N3DSXL from 9.2 to 9.5, its a US firmware so I haven't been deleting anything. I have sysupdater installed to my emuNand via FBI on the cia packaged with it and every time I get back to my emuNand via rxTools I get "Creating Home Menu" and then a black screen. Any ideas?
Running RX 10.3 and have access to E-shop, can I download the updates for games normally?
tell me about sliderhax friends
one guide say click the far end and then don't touch anything
one youtuber say click the slider and mash A button
many people say initialize browser data
while others say clear cookies and history
and now one anon in this thread say to reset 3ds before trying it
none of this guaranteed work and none of this actually work for me
i tried it 100 times already but this is bullshit and i hate it
i guess i just settle with hacked psp
Delete cookies & history, load up the browser without the internet on, and load sliderhax. Turn your internet on, and hit the far right side of the slider.
Then install menuhax because using the browser is a massive pain in the ass.
Taiko no Tatsujin and Rythim Tengoku THE BEST.
HELP I'M FUCKING BAD
I'M TRYING TO INSTALL RXTOOLS
I RAN THE PYTON AND IT GENERATED A FIRM FOLDER WITH 3 BIN FILES
IS THAT NORMAL?
Make sure you guys grab Big Blue Menu simply because CIA installs are a tad faster and the fact that you can close the screen during an install and it will still continue.
Just don't leave it like that for too long or it'll burn a hole through your 3DS.
ALSO THE RXTOOLS FOLDER HAS 5 FOLDERS IN IT INSTEAD OF 4 LIKE THE GUIDE SAYS. THERE'S A NAND FOLDER THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE? FUCK
done that just to lazy to report it, didn't work.
what other entry point for 9.2.0? one that not require cart or games (except ironfall, i got the game but people say it didnt work for 9.2.0) preferably.
the talk about incomplete downgrade also worries me and i got no way to check since can't access hbc
>have old 3DS xl with 9.2 and everything setup
>thinking about getting new 3DS
>see one for 140 relative new on 10.3 but has problems reading games
Iam just afraid that if I buy it and try to downgrade it will softbrick and I have a 10.4 piece of shit.
Why cant I be happy with my old 3ds xl? Why do I get this feeling I have to upgrade?
And how common are soft bricks?
Note if you downgrade past 7.0, any game cartridge with saves made past that point (if I remember correctly) will corrupt.
I tested it out with Omega Ruby the other day and it did happen, so just be aware.

So I have a backed up sd card with all my files how do I extract the save datas?
I was following a guide and at a certain point it told me that, if when turning on the 3DS I was stuck on a black screen, I should remove the SD card, turn on the 3DS so it would start with the default theme, change the theme to any other, put the sd card in and restart the 3DS.
This worked, but now I'm stuck on a colored theme and can't set the default theme anymore to load the homemenuhax when turning it on.
What do I do?
Ive try it but files dont show up on the sd slot when I open savedatafiler
I did it mom!
I've got my CFW working on boot!
I've got FBI!
I've got all my old games back!
Now for the last thing...
How do I update my emuNAND? I'm on settings right now, it shows RX-E 9.2.0-20E.
Also, has someone got a MHX.cia? ANd also the patch?
Can't find any Cryptofix'd games. On top of that, modern eShop games have updates built into them, so the only way to do it is wait until someone dumps an updated .CIA.
And I've already updated my NVER.
Already did senpai. I've got 2 folders with lots of digits, and I almost had an heart attack when all my shit disappeared, just to reappear after rxtools worked. Is there any way to double check that the NANDs are unlinked?
New or Old 3ds?
If Old, use the regular system update function in the settings while in RX mode.
If New, they say to use the SysUpdater app that was used during downgrading but the update part of it (Press A instead of Y) with 9.5.0-23 N3DS files in the update folder, but that has yet to work for me and I only get a black screen after booting back to emuNand.
If it's occurring on sysnand, you can boot into safe mode and cancel the update, deleting the old one that was downloaded while in sleep mode.
If it's on emunand then I'm afraid I'm not sure. Do note that I don't have an n3ds so I don't know if these instructions apply.
Yes, but there are cases when the updates fuck up the games like deleting saves and shit (though it doesn't happen that often). Some say that you should update them through .cias just to be on the safe side.
Wait, the official system update on a N3DS? You better have an emunand backup and use Emunand Tools.
Hell, even if you got a botched update with the sysupdater cia its the same solution.
Emunand takes up about a gig and a half in itself. Games can go up to 3 gig depending on what they care. Plus you actually need the room on the card to install the thing (unless you're using ftbrony and have a good few hours to kill)
So yeah, if you're on anything less than an 8gig sd card, you're not really going to get any benefit from it.
32GB is fine tho
12gb free space left
Transfer the Emunand but ye once thats done just copy and paste
I don't want to brick my N3DS since it's a limited edition on the off chance that I could pirate like 5 games worth pirating.
Nintendo is a piece of shit company though and I doubt I'll buy any more games on the handheld so my only question is: just how bulletproof is this? People say you have to downgrade and then do 10 steps in which any one of them can fail and brick your shit randomly.
So I have a 10.3 3DS XL with absolutely nothing on it. Haven't download emunand or anything. Just stock software. What do I need to get to begin the manual install?
I was going to get a 32 GB SD card before I started. Is that large enough? Too large? Thanks in advance.
Fuck this shit dude.
My sysNAND loads up perfectly.
My emunand gets to "opening home menu" and then pops out an error.
I didn't backup my emuNAND. Yep.
What do I have to do now?
Someone send help plox.
How to fix emunand.
Fuck it was working so well. Can't I skip the "opening home menu" thing somehow? I think it tries to reboot the 3DS during that for some reasons.
Have fun, guys!
I'm right at the end of this guide
and everything was going just fine but the last mega.co.nz link won't work for me
Can anybody mirror it for me?
This is the link
got it to work after digging around for the CIA unique ID's in FBI and googling each one at a time.
Taiko no Tatsujin Unique ID: 0004000000102F00
someone make a list of this shit for future japanese DLC prospects on non j-n3ds units.
So after using TinyFormat whenever I try to open Homebrew via broswerhax I get the error message, and the menuhax was deleted because of the TinyFormat. Anyone else had this problem and found a solution for it?
>works for me
>downgrading is risky

>only one mistake and 300 euro's down the drain
>BUT IT WILL BE YOUR OWN FAULT
I-I think I'll just fucking be happy with my 4 games and just leave the DS alone and just let it collect dust.
can you read letters and match patterns? can you get through an episode of elmo or sesame street and solve all the puzzles they give you about matching shapes? congratulations, you are smart enough to do this.
Hate to keep asking but you know any place where I could download a new sysupdate?
I downloaded the one of off the pastebin thats flowing around here but I'm still having that issue.
Also, renaming it boot.3ds or boot.3dsx
"I CAN'T RUN EMUNAND"fag here.
I discovered the problem.
Menuhax mcfaggot sneaked his way in the emuNAND, somehow.
I destroyed it.
Now I'll try to install MHX. Hope that the .cia I downloaded doesn't make my 3DS explode. Is there any way to confirm it is legit?
