So, it's one of these threads, also, for the anons of the last one:
Devil Survivor 2 Undub:
Persona Q Undub:
>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?<---
>tfw when you made it to the promised land
Softbricks are fairly uncommon now, I've downgraded two n3ds and an o3ds and havent softbricked. You only have a about 6 hours until the maintenance starts though. If you're gonna do it, do it now.
I don't even want to play it, I just wanted to make it work
ghost recon, xcom, and star wars pinball
that's the first thing I installed to check if it worked too. huge sigh of relief before I realized that my work wasn't over yet
everything was running fine on rxTools CFW 9.2 last night, played a couple hours of games installed by .cia then turned it off. When I woke up this morning holding the button to trigger menuhax didn't do anything, so I just went and reinstalled it.
Maybe it was because I set my theme to a standard black theme before turning it off?
I didn't use a custom theme, just one of the standard color ones that come with the ds. But I guess that did it.
>tfw already filled my 16GB sd card
>tfw too retarded to quick install cfw on a spare 4GB sd card just to play persona Q
Any absolute retard friendly guide? I'm afraid of doing that shit again because I might fuck something up. I don't even understand how I managed to get rxtools running in the first place
>tfw literally no point in hacking my 3DS because I've already purchased more games physically and digitally than most of you will ever bother pirating
>use instructions to downgrade, install rxTools emunand, inject FBI into emunand, and use FBI to install CIAs
>post instructions I used, everyone says they're outdated and I'm an idiot
>but my install is stable and everyone else is having non-stop problems
installing that beauty right now. Fuck Nintendo, I would have legit bought that game if they released it in the US. So glad I don't have to deal with region locking/region exclusives anymore.
>delete CIA to make room for others
>go to eshop
>it thinks you bought the game and will let you redownload any CIA you've installed previously
you goys realize if NX is backwards compat we're gonna have access to all this shit legitimately?
Start with either the shittiest ones or the genres you are not actually a big fan of.
I started with Conception 2(it's shit, mostly) and Samurai Warrior Chrnoicles (not fan of Musous) and progressively worked my way up the list
Actually, I can't even make it to work. It says that it's corrupted or some fuck. It doesn't even allow me to inject the emunand file that I got from the other tool
>Disable audio/video sync to get near full speed in most games
Some other filter methods I use are to play remakes/remasters first (like Soul Hacker/Devil Survivor and more story focused ones (like Phoenix Wright).
Other than that, do not play more than 2 games at once, unless it's filler time liek a pinball game or Mario Golf.
Work through that backlog
Help i get this error when i try to install something
I'm definitely gonna do that when I need to make room on my SD. Can I boot the eShop from my home menu in emuNAND (or sysNAND if it makes a difference) or do I have to use the homebrew launcher?
I'm sure you're heard this 100 times, but whenever I try to access the homebrew launcher via the 3ds browser, I get a yellow screen on my touchpad and ''terminated script..'' on my top. I've yet to see this slider after 20ish tries and I've download that starter file.
Am I supposed to downgrade first before I do this? I'm following
with an old3ds.
So, according to hbg pasta, now they advice installing cfw first then doing the emunand
But before, they said to do emunand first then unlink nands then cfw the emunand so you touch the sysnand as little as possible
Also, if unlinking the emunand means "resetting" it, wouldnt that make the emunand revert to 9.2's factory settings and make you install cfw on it again?
HOL UP HOL UP HOL UP
Does that mean I can downgrade a 3ds, install all this bullshit, get a bunch of games...
Transfer all that shit to ANOTHER 3DS and it will think I legit bought everything? And I won't have to worry about it bricking if an update goes through to something?
So it seems like a few people in this thread are doing it on N3DS but it seems like some people are having issues with it. What's the deal if I only have a N3DS? Is it still worth doing? Is it the same method? I only really care for pirating games. If I can't do that it's not really worth it.
This is like the ultimate "I'm an obnoxious retard, please, come over to my house so I can show you my lewd anime figurine collection" buzzword.
Never has /v/ ever seen an easier way to identify completely hopeless weeb faggots than "CENSORSHIP"
Its never story related, its never gameplay related, the "OH MY GOD THEY CENSORED OUR GAME REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" shitpost fests are always about cosmetic lewd outfits that looked retarded anyway.
I can't even believe you guys can take each other seriously long enough to have formed this ridiculous circle jerk.
I'm not even a SJW, nor do I give a fuck about women being sexualized at all. Its just ridiculous how fucking upset you guys get when games get localized instead of just straight up translated directly. Whats even more ridiculous is that you idiots don't just fucking learn japanese so that you can play the true, unaltered original versions of the game without any of the humour and subtle references being lost in translation.
You don't give two fucks about anything but lewd outfits, and I find that incredibly silly.
This entire anti-censorship brigade is probably the most laughably pathetic and pointless outrage I've seen on the internet since Gamer Gate
I'm still stuck at the fbi_inject.tmd error, and not having much luck. It's there, it should work, but something tells me I'm missing a file that the fbi_inject.tmd is reliant on.
I have a gateway 3ds flashcard, what does this mean for me?
Post your home screens faggots.
Got the Fire Emblem DLC and patch for online play. Feels good man.
>managed to downgrade to 9.2
>installed rxtools and bigblue no issues
>can't boot into rxtools by ctr or mset exploit
>can only use the browser
Well, alright, i would've preferred to not use the browser but i can live.
Downgrading a N3DS is 85% safe instead of 99%.
Add human stupidity factor and you get the point.
If you just want to pirate shit, it's a process of few hours to get everything set-up.
Than it's just a process of downloading games and installing them each time
There's an option in bigblue/FBI. You'll have to delete a file that has some coded name. Put that code in google or check the file size so you know what you're uninstalling.
POPstart was an official fucking emulator anon. Hell, the 3DS GBA emulator is also fucking trash but the official one works flawlessly
I do not need a company to worry about my behalf, be it outfits or anything else.
Changes in the name of 'make it more culturally sensitive' is what led to silly shit liek Comics Code
Kindly /r/equesting a .cia of Etrian Odyssey Untold, SMT: Soul Hackers or Devil Survivor 2: Break Record.
I need to make a MEGA account or some shit while I'm thinking of it, it sucks that I can't just DL shit larger than 1 GB without an account.
I guess that's a risk I'm willing to take since I hardly play my 3DS. I have ironhax on it right now and it's cool that I could have custom themes but it didn't seem all that great. Can't imagine it's much harder than installing that was. Can I do everything using the wireless transfer thing still? Don't feel like opening up the 3DS multiple times.
unrelated but here's stella glow that some anon posted above. Its larger than a gig and is thru mega and i can DL fine
>Tfw I finally made it
>Tfw I coldboot in rxtools with FBI working
>Tfw I'm playing MHX english patched right now
>Tfw there's actually a god up there granting this kind of bliss
This is beatiful...
I could die of happines right no
Not sure about the wireless.
I just pulled out the memory card each time.
Generally, installing RXtools or any firmware is easy if you can follow instructions and many chances to fix dumb mistakes.
The only one important thing you must make sure you do NOT FUCK UP is unlinking nands.
If you manage to do that properly and update Emunand to 10.3, you will be able to pretty much play all current releases and most releases of 2016
>Am I supposed to downgrade first before I do this?
I don't think you can until you do this.
Is boot.3dsx on the root of the card?
Did you initalize data in the browser options?
Try checking your SD card contents and see if it download the payload. You might need to delete it, and rescan the QR code
sysUpdater IS A PIECE OF SHIT.
/v/ YOU SAID NOW OR NEVER. WTF IS WITH THESE BROKEN ASS PROGRAMS THAT YOU HAVE TO RETRY 100+OVER. THIS SHIT IS INFURIATING.
They aren't worried about you dumb dumb.
In fact, they probably couldn't give less of a fuck about you as an individual.
They care about North America's culture in general, and there are certain cultural differences between NA and Japan that generally need to be mildly altered so that the publisher doesn't have to deal with any backlash.
Generally it involves the fact that the USA isn't cool with offically sexualizing kids, thats something they have to be sneaky about.
Japan is far from sneaky about it, so they either change the characters age or the outfit.
Most people would just go "oh, that makes sense, thats a safe change to make. No big loss, its just a lame costume anyway, the game is still the same"
But the autist collective on /v/ that has made localization teams their sworn enemy react with 100%sperg rage "REEEEEEEEEEEE FUUUUUUUUCK YOUUUUUUU ATLUS/NINTENDO/SEGA/MOM/KONAMI, WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TO DENY ME SEXY KIDS!?!? I AM A FUCKING ADULT REEEEEE LET ME LOOK AT BOOBS, I FUCKING HATE VIDEOGAMES GOD DAMN I JUST WANT TO MASTURBATE TO FORGET HOW MUCH I HATE MY LIFE. GIVE ME MY ANIME LADIES IN LEWD OUTFITS, I NEED TO DISTRACT MYSELF FROM SUICIDAL THOUGHTS BUT I'M TOO MUCH OF A FAGGOT TO ACTUALLY JUST PLAY VIDEOGAMES UNLESS THEY STAR MOE ANIME KIDS BEING SEXY AND CUTE!!!"
It worked, thanks have this link http://pastebin.com/PJtEq0Af
Well that's fucking strange. I've tried DLing games larger than a GB before and it's given me a message that went along the line of "MEGA is unable to guarantee uninterrupted downloads of files larger than 1 GB" or some shit.
If I'm just being retarded, and I can actually DL shit larger than 1GB just fine, then holy shit this must be a new record for me.
>Persona Q Undub
On one hand, Aigis' ~de arimasu just adds a lot to her goofier lines. On the other, "Kuma" is fucking ear cancer and I can't stop hearing Gilgamesh every time Kanji opens his mouth.
Did you use their megadownload software thing?
I just did to put it in the cloud even before having an account. It downloads on their website, then it sends it to "download" on your browser, except that its not really downloading, moreso transferring because it takes probably 5% of the time it took to download the first time
>tfw the stars all aligned and you're playing English patched MHX on RXE 10.3 RIGHT NOW
>tfw you got so excited from getting everything to work you immediately helped your friend get CFW to work just to do the same thing
>tfw the stars aligned again and they can do the exact same thing
Is it safe to update my cia games or should I ignore it?
No man, I've been playing The Best since saturday.But, it's your life, you decide.
I was thinking of buying one and try this out so I can finally play SMT IV and Bravely Default but I'm a poorfag and they're really fucking expensive over here, even used ones. Looks like I'll have to wait until an emulator comes out.
You gotta bite the bullet and put
ftbronyback in from the starter pack
You gotta open it, mash B to exit immediatly THEN use sysupdate
Dont ask me why it works, but it does, as much as I hate anything coming from that taking space on my devices.
Once I did that it only took it 2 attempts for it to quit saying thecia files were missing despite literally drag and dropping the "updates" folder
And no, the other ftp program doesnt work for this
I wasn't saying I used their software, haha, I was asking if you use it.
I always used the gray box without an account and the downloads were fine and fast even with 1+GB games
Don't limit yourself to just 3 anon. there's too many good games depending on what suits you best
KH3D, Mario Kart 7, OoT3D, Animal crossing, Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter, Ace Attorney Trilogy/5, Pokemon, etc
I can't install any CIA injectors, and I don't know where I'm going wrong.
HBL > FBI = Installs if I started with Rxtools devmode first, but you don't see proof of it on emu or sysnand.
Rxtools Devmode > RXtools FBI = I get a 0 ;fbi_inject.tmd error.
My god it works.
Thanks for telling me about this shit anon.
Devil Survivor: Overclocked is probably the best SRPG on the 3DS. If you're into that kind of stuff, I highly suggest playing it.
>Devil Survivor: Overclocked is probably the best SRPG on the 3DS.
I second this. Been playing it and it's great.
I've had my 3DS hacked since the first CFW for it came out. Is there anything better than rxTools yet? I'm still on 2.6 I think, still need an internet connection to start the exploit every time I want to play a pirated game after I've turned off the system.
9.0 N3DS here. I'm confused as shit by all this [whatever]hax bullshit, but I've got a simple question:
I already had Emunand installed through a Gateway using an OoT cart as entry. What I want to do is install MenuHax so that the DS Profile exploit will stop resetting itself any time I pop any DS games in. I heard I need Browserhax to do that.
Does Browserhax still work? Because I heard Nintendo was going to roll something out that'd kill SOMETHING today, I'm just not sure what.
the browserhax exploit is only fixed in the new update that came out today. as long as you don't update to 10.4 or whatever it was, browserhax should still work as long as it lets you access the internet without updating.
Any chance that Gateway's cheats might allow me to copy ( or reproduce) my party's levels and demons from the DS cart? Only reason I haven't touched both 3DS remakes is that I can't fucking stand the thought of re-grinding all my shit AGAIN.
Trying to use this guide but opening pasta cfw loader just goes back to the homebrew launcher. Just gonna reformat and start from scratch.
Overclocked adds an 8th day, higher-res sprites and voice acting. The 8th day content varies in quality, but it's generally pretty good. Spriting is alright, but this isn't a game you play for the graphics. The VA's range from alright to eardrum-shattering.
There's also some mild balance adjustments and bugfixes I think. Overall worth a pirate, even if you've beaten the original like I did.
2 QUESTIONS GUYS
Can you play games from another region? Like a Japanese game on an NA 3DS?
Can you pirate eshop games? There are some games that are eshop only...
I've been trying to get sysupdater to work for like an hour but nothing fucking happens. All I get is the menu screen and pops up after I press any buttons and I have to hard press the power button to turn off the 3ds because the program crashes.
Unless they have specific cheats for the game(you can check the database), no dice.
However, they have added a broken physical skill you can use even on the first run (it seriously makes the game easier by existing, along with a few great passive skills).
>Can you play games from another region? Like a Japanese game on an NA 3DS?
As far as I know, it's possible with RXTools
It's also possible with physical carts and the HBL
>Can you pirate eshop games? There are some games that are eshop only...
Sure, if you're willing to search for them
I'd recommend getting CTR, I'm not sure how undubbed games work. I assume you can just load it normally with rxtools though. I have the english translation of FE IF and all I have to do is open it in rxtools and it plays fine. (except for dlc and stuff)
On the top right of the touch screen there will be two buttons, one is a big square, the other are 4 little squares
That shit is the worst part. That process to me makes no fucking sense.
>Dont ask me why it works, but it does, as much as I hate anything coming from that taking space on my devices.
I have been doing that for about 10+ times in a row. No dice.
>And no, the other ftp program doesnt work for this
image related when I found that out the "hard" way
aka hard reset
> mfw playing Fire Emblem If (Fates)
translation is kinda shoddy, but it feels good playing a game before it's released in the west.
>Can you play games from another region? Like a Japanese game on an NA 3DS?
Yes, but it depends. rxTools supports region free overall, Cakes doesn't, but you can install NTR CFW on top of Cakes to add region free capabilities. On top of that some .cias are marked as "RF" or "Region Free", indicating that the .cia can be played on any 3DS regardless of region or CFW.
>Can you pirate eshop games? There are some games that are eshop only...
Q1. If you have rxtools all you gotta do is install and play whatever region you want. However, when you get update and DLC cia, make sure its of the same region as the game's cia just to be safe
Q2. See image
>never lowers the price of their games.
Come on, you still believe Nintendo tell Best Buy, Target, and any other store what prices they can sell their games at and how often they can have sales?
Once those stores buy games from Nintendo, they can price them at whatever
By your logic Nintendo has more power over stores than Sony and Microsoft as their games are on sale
I'm not that guy you were talking to but I did everything he pretty much said on my N3DS, and I do transfer game cia files wirelessly. The only problem with that is I have to turn off the system since after transferring it boots into the sysnand, and I don't need that shit happening.
Been following http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW and got stuck. In step c. it says that my 3ds should boot into CTRBootManager when I hold L but it is still booting into Homebrew. Did I do something wrong?
I downgraded to 9.2 Saturday but didn't have the time on Sunday to dedicate further to the issue.
However, I can no longer launch oothax, nor browserhax. Even accessing the sliderhax" page directly doesn't work, it just throws me to "system error please save your data and turn off".
Clearing the browser profile only helps me get to yellow flashy screen, nothing else.
Clearing cookies, history doesn't help.
Setting DNS to old tubehax doesn't help (IIRC, it wouldn't anyway).
Trying 999 times doesn't help.
My 3DS hasn't updated again yet.
>playing a SRPG
>expecting there to be no story
Come on anon, you're better than this, I know it.
The story isn't that terrible, honestly. I could see your complaints if you were playing DeSu 2, but 1's story is pretty solid.
since I'm a physical/collectorfag I'm still getting the game when it comes out on NA.
Too bad I couldn't preorder the special edition...
Tactics is horrendously balanced and easy to cheese through for anyone non-retarded.
FE characters drive the game on top of decent map design.
But only like 4 entries are actually above average SRPGs.
So yeah, you are in the wrong genre
Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying a n3DS, I have money right now but too many games to play, I'm thinking about waiting for it to get cheaper.
Do you think there's a chance the n3DS will be unhackable in the future?
What worked for me when I was struggling was hitting "Initialize Save Data" at the bottom of the settings menu in the browser, reopening the browser and going through the initial setup, closing the browser and scanning the QR code in the camera, and then zooming in and clicking the very right side of the slider.
I got the special Edition preordered. Think I might just sell the game(Since I have the fan translated game with update for online and all DLC) and keep the pouch and artbook. I mean, the Special edition is rare in itself, but the game is rare as well since it has all 3-in-1 and the only place to get it is in the SE
So then after you downgrade no more online right?
Because then the 3DS would download an update.
So even if I did hack my 3DS and got MH4U I wouldn't be able to go online and get the DLC
Just local multi
Ok, clear this up for me because all these names are getting fucking retarded.
Objective: I want MenuHax so I can boot Gateway's GW.3dsx from there.
What I'm Guessing: I need to install "the Homebrew launcher" first to run MenuHax. So I'm going to put the savegame I found HERE:
On my Sky3DS-held Ocarina of Time rom, So I can use it as an entrypoint to install the Homebrew Launcher, so i can use MenuHax from there.
Does this make sense to anybody else? Does it ring any "No, nigger that won't work" bells? Anything I'm missing?
I didn't think /v/ was actually retarded but this fucking thread.
Yeah, gone through that several times, it's even in the sliderhax instructions in their repo.
However, only right after the "Initialize save data" part it can take me to yellow screen, but it still dies. No can do any progress beyond that.
I was beginning to suspect the issue is not with my browserhax but with my homebrew launcher, but even after I dumped the smeastarterkit on the SDroot again, no visible effect.
I was on 9.9 when all this started and had to update to 10.3 just to be able to access the brower to use browserhax. You'll be fine as long as you download the correct firmware (region specific) for your 3ds when you downgrade.
You can update your emunand to the latest update it can go to to play those games. Then you just gotta find a patch cia for whatever region your MH4U game is
And honestly, theres no point in using your sysnand anymore after hacking so take off internet settings so it has no way to connect online to download an update from Nintendo. (Assuming you have menuhax and dont need browserhax anymore)
Unless you're on the N3ds, you can only update to 9.5 right now. That said you can still play online, been playing triforce heroes lately and it's actually a lot more fun then I thought it would be.
I'm kinda worried about this. They *have* to have a way of finding out you never actually bought the game.
If there's not payment information for a title that's "legitimately" on your NNID account, they can easily conclude you pirated it.
Maybe they won't go as far as to ban you, especially not a few years down the line. But I would not count on having legit access to thoise pirated games for all eternity.
Personally, I'd rather stay away from the eShop/account system.
Or am I missing an important detail that stops Nintendo from ever knowing what went on?
Here's a starter pack of cia's
Here's tales of the abyss
finally downgraded this shit. got rxtools installed.
tested out a few games and they work. man, this rush. its like hacking my psp when that scene was fairly new.
so playing online still works perfectly fine right? as in with the games i already own and downloaded games?
also, i updated my emuNAND to 10.3.
should i leave my sysNAND at 9.2? or should I update that to 10.3 as well?
I honestly would like to try out a 3DS XL
N3DS isn't much different though, right? I mean there is only one or two exclusives and just as many games that take advantage of the extra button
Ayyy, I can finally play cubic ninja without paying out the ass for it
>Rhythm heaven plus
>Layton x Ace Attorney
>Tales of the Abyss
>Majora's mask 3d
>Link between worlds
>Metal gear solid 3d
Glad this shit works.
That music in rhythm heaven plus though.
its really not that hard.
follow this guide : https://gbatemp .net/threads /tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
under installing menuhax...you find everything you need. I had troubles with the newer build and used the tut points in the spoiler.
>its like hacking my psp when that scene was fairly new.
I remember Dev_tools or whatever
Same with the Wii and the first ISOLoader
I was most worried with my PS3, still haven't updated from Rogero 4.41
But now PSP and Wii are so easy to mod
when i try to select a game on hans it shows no games, probably because its on my emunand?
how can i target games from my emunand on that?
If you're using cakes, all you need is NTR to get out of region stuff working.
Starts at 119 in the pastebin
Just to play stuff online.
Other than that, no. Not really.
It should have rhythm heaven
And if you're on cakes, make sure you get NTR
Line 119 in the pastebin
No you weeb.
The only difference is
>Games like smash and MH dont need to restart your system to optimize its memory usage
>Camera in MM3D
>Only exclusive game is Xenoblade
Following this guide:
So far so good. Just downgraded to 9.2 software. I am now going to get an emuNAND. However, I wanted to get a bigger SD card (instead of the standard 4gig one) for all the games I will pirate. Should I go buy the bigger SD card and then download the emuNAND on that?
Yes, it's entirely possible until the 10.4 update comes out.
It's only speculation, but getting into homebrew and downgrading through sysupdater is the only "hard" step.
I don't think so.
Check out the homebrew general on /vg/
I have a question a question for you pirates, When the NSA come knocking on your door and demands you hand over your illegally modified 3ds what are you gonna do?
what is the reason for undubbing games to a language you do not read, write or speak? I would understand if the localized version got compensation goods to spice the game up.
>followed the retard guide but couldn't set up a linked emunand because rxtools always gave me an installation error with "native firm 4"
>update back to 10.3 after hearing about some installer
>absolutely nothing has been said about the installer since
How badly did I fuck up?
I'm not too worried about getting banned (which apparently has never happened with cias btw). I'm more worried that this hack is so good they allow people to download the games through eshop. What if they drag a poor kid to court over this shit? This could have all kinds of implications.
No m8. Tone it down a bit.
Here's a tl;dr
>Have the sd card you want
>Get the starter.zip files on the sd card
>Put sd card back into ds
>Scan this qr code
>This opens browserhax
NOTE: It might not work all the time
If you get
>Stuck on a color
It's perfectly fine to turn the ds off and try again
But once you're in homebrew (You'll know)
>Scroll down to menu hax
NOTE: If it gives you an error talking about going to the home menu and opening the themes menu, go do that, just make sure to NOT change the theme from the home menu AFTER doing this
>Go to configure/check haxx trigger buttons
>Follow the instructions from there
>Wait for it to say completed
>Turn off ds
>Hold the button down you assigned when the ds turns on
>You get sent to homebrew automatically
YES, you can boot into homebrew through menuloader without an internet connection
So I've just downgraded to 9.2
How do I get menuhax reinstalled?
Is it too late to do it throught the browser or is there an alternative?
I thought both menu and ironhax would survive the downgrade but apparently they don't and I really don't want to be stuck now.
Is the nag-messsage already activating in the browser? Or can I still use the browser to get the hax?
follow this guide to the letter. take your time with it. read it first. understand it second. follow it third.
Probably. I'm just a paranoid fuck. I'll disable my wifi for the next few weeks and let things settle down for now. I'm just playing layton vs wright anyway so i dont need online.
Any anon here thast can tell me how to install TinyFormat to my sysnand so I can use my nnid on the emunand? I'm at the stage of having rxtools installed and accesable by menuhax, and linked nands.
If you install them as cia's then great. I have both metroid gba games, super mario advance 4 and red rescue team and they've all ran consistently well. The only issue is installing them to both sysnand and emunand if you unlinked your nands.
If you have the space you can back up the NAND, and back up everything on the card, but you'll have to inject the NAND later
You'll have to copy just as many times either way
You'll eventually want a bigger card
I've been on 9.2 for a long time already, and I've been following the Retard Guide:
I bought myself a 32 GB SD card today, and put it in the 3DS to get the starting menu files. I don't care about losing save files, and the only game I had digitally was Ace Attorney, which I'll just download later.
After putting it in the 3DS, I took the SD card out, and installed the starter pack:
Now, I'm supposed to be able to go to the website on the QR code and tap the slider to open the Homebrew Menu, but every time I try, I get kicked to the 3DS Home Screen, with an error message.
Did I do something wrong?
>tfw power surge bricked my N3DS when I was downgrading
Absolutely. This shit may work out if only a handful of people would do it. But I fear a lot of people will get their pirated games linked to the eShop, maybe even without knowing.
Nintendo will notice this loophole and realize they accidentally set up a honeypot there.
Maybe I'm paranoid, but better safe than sorry. No eShop on my hacked N3DS
A valid point. They need some way to link games to your account without any sort of payment in advance. As a result, it can be used for any game.
They will have a hard time *proving* you pirated a game. What are they going to say? "We cannot find his receipts?"
So I wouldn't expect Nintendo to go crazy about it. But they may ban your shit
So is this process about to be stopped or whatever soon?
Why is /v/ saying now or never
I ask cause I have a N3DS that I pretty much just bought that I don't want to brick if this process isn't exactly foolproof yet for the newer systems. I also have an older 3ds which has a broken touch screen but idk if I can do anything with that

From Monday, January 11 at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern until Tuesday, January 12 at 3am Pacific / 6am Eastern.
From Tuesday, 12 January at 1am UK / 2am CET to Tuesday, 12 January 11am UK / 12pm CET.
So I'm at this step:
20) Go to Advanced > Install FBI > emuNAND > Check TMD. Make note of the Region and the Version.
But RxTools says it cant find anything. I know my region (U). Is the version the os version?
Joke's on them.
I have it set up so that when you turn it on, it just looks like a normal ds.
It's a great way to keep younger kids or annoying as fuck siblings out of your content.
You just have to put both the sysupdater files into the 3ds folder (NOT the Nintendo 3ds folder) on your SD card.
Shit, there should be.
If not you can just launch it through HANS and play it undubbed.
Those people are just shitposting.
If you got it working, and you followed your pastebin carefully you should be set.
There's megalinks floating around
Some are in this VERY THREAD
Come on now
Getting gba games to play is easy if you used rxTools
If you used cakes though, it's a massive pain in the ass.
As far as I know, gba games installed as virtual console titles have to be installed to both or else they simply won't work. I tried installing them to each nand separately and running them but I just got an error whenever I started the game.
>We're just going to change a stupid costume the game is still the fucking same why do you care you fucking autist
>We're just going to change a stupid name of an important item because it's too japanese the game is still the fucking same why do you care you fucking autist
>We're just going to change the age/sex/relationship of these characters because it's too fucking creepy for western sensibilities the game is still the fucking same why do you care you fucking autist
I hope you die in your sleep drowning on the sludge you call a brain as it seeps out of your skull and into your lungs
>Failed to get CIA file info!
I've tried for 5 hours to get past this error.
Why won't I ever be able to downgrade
Actually i just checked my eshop. I didnt see any pirated stuff on my redonwload list, however attempting to download rune factory 4 (which i bought legitimately) throws me an error 007-2404.
Maybe it's because i'm on n3ds with multipatcher and nver.cia and shit but i'm sad i cant download my legit stuff. Oh well it was only RF, pokemon and 3 other games, i can live with that.
im currently using a 16gb card right now since it was the biggest card i had.
how do i go about when upgrading to something like a 32gb card?
do i literally just copy the contents over to the new card and will it just detect the bigger size right away?
There is maintenance tonight, but no clue on updates
There might be an update, but many have said the last fix to exploits took weeks and this exploit bigger. Plus the news of maintenance came out days after the exploit, so I'm sure it was planned maintenance
>>tfw literally no point in hacking my 3DS because I've already purchased more games physically and digitally than most of you will ever bother pirating
>implying you spent over $2500 in 3DS games
And if you did get your fucking priorities straight.
No, that happens
Open the browser, click the wrench, and go to initialize save data.
Let the browser close, and THEN try scanning the QR code again.
Please understand that browserhax doesn't work every single time. If it gets stuck on a color, don't worry, just turn off the ds and try again.
>IF YOU KEEP GETTING ERROR MESSAGES
Make sure you open the browser, click the wrench and click intialize save data.
Try opening browserhax again, and let it load into homebrew
Make sure you install Menuhax so you don't have to do this every time
Like anyone's going to fall for your shitty bait
now or never because we think nintendo is going to disable the internet browser on 10.4
Which means you can't get to homebrew AT ALL.
>visual aid guide
Uh...if you can stomach some shitty youtube videos, you can look those up.
Just follow this pastebin, honestly
Rhythm heaven plus
I paid $10 for a SD card
Gatewayfags were acting so damn smug too
If you downloaded the (U) region for the sysupdate files, you're fine.
You can move on.
zoom in on the slider and tap the very very far right side of the slider. like right on the edge of it.
if that doesn't do it for you, hit "Initialize Save Data" at the bottom of the settings menu in the browser. If it quits on you again, try clicking it in slightly different positions always to the very right of the slider.
Don't kill yourself anon! Think of all the wonderful piracy we'll get in the future!
What's some must-have homebrew? I wanna try out some cool shit besides playing games.
You might be short with 16GB.
32 GB is the sweetspot, 64 will make you forget about how much space you are left with and 128gb is excessive
you can still hardmod it and flash the built in memory google is your friend
Anyone know how to install rxTools on a N3DS?
I've tried Cakes, but it doesn't want to load into emunand for me.
I've used rxtools flawlessly on three O3DSes, but I'm not sure which rxTools would work best for the N3DS.
You can delete cia files once you install them.
Rinse and repeat.
I got a 16 gig card for $10
It's more than plenty.
You just have to delete cia files after you install them on your ds

>If you downloaded the (U) region for the sysupdate files, you're fine.
Thanks, it finally worked and I found out the version I needed. However, when I boot rxtools from the manager without pressing L it goes to a black screen. I should have the emunand installed so Im not sure what's happening.
Serious questions here. I installed a few (13) peoples 3ds with emunand and the fbi app in their emunand.
Our 3ds boots directly into ctrbootmanager and we can select rxtools and homebrew launcher.
We boot into the CFW rxe9.2 I think it is called
Is there an easier way than restarting the 3ds to get to homebrew launcher? Easier than using browserhax from in the emunand? If not thats cool I don't mind the restarts.
Also how do you turn .3ds and .3dz into .cia or at least use those files? I have installed .cia games no issue but keep finding .3ds and .3dz
We literally only have fbi installed in the emunand(and I tested bigbluumenu and it was not helping)
Appreciate any answers, specifically about the .3ds and .3dz files I keep finding. Sure there is some easy app or some shit I missed.
I haven't helped the scene since the DarkAlex psp cfw days of legend. Trying to get back into it.
(ps, is there a way to make my own .cia files of my games to share with my seedbox over torrents? I own about 80 or so 3ds games)
Again thanks people.
I've installed fantasy life (u) plus origin island from a bunch of different sources but so far i've seen no changes from the non-dlc install.
Supposedly you should new haircuts at the start right? I don't see shit. Any help or link to a working .cia combo?
This is the one I used for my N3ds
Once you downgrade it just follow this guide.
The guide on GBAtemp is much better than the pastebin.
It has you install the .fbi into the sysnand, then when you make the emunand copy it goes with it. No fucking around with that step that is almost a 50/50 of working.
That guide, if you have a N3ds. I think there are ways for O3ds to do similar also.
So I fucked up big time, at least thats what I think, you see...
I backed up all my SD files on my PC before trying to update my emunand to 10.3, got a black screen and the solution was formating my emunand, now I want to recover all my savedatas from the old emunand but I havent managed to succed, Ive tryed savedatafiler and svdt and the files dont show up, is there a way to recover them?
