So around 12 minutes ago, update 10.4 just went live.
What we know:
>patched vuln for downgrade
>It is OKAY to update to 10.4 emuNAND on N3DS if you're using ReiNAND
Assuming this is N3DS only, which I cannot confirm, and assuming you are on N3DS, I hope you have menuhax installed or are on a FW lower than 9.9, because you'll need to update to use the browser if not.
We had a good run. It may be a while before kernel hax comes around again, but anybody who really cares already downgraded anyway
>I hope you have menuhax
>I literally installed it a couple of hours ago
Feels fantastic man
Not on sysNAND without an update. If you update emuNAND you should be able to.
Yes, as long as you're downgraded you're fine.
You can try my guide:
Yes, games use system header instead of cartridge header like .3ds files do. But you'll need to update the games in order to do, either through eshop or with .cia patches.
>haven't been able to get past SysUpdater
Well. At least I can still keep trying for another week.
I should add you'll do everything with menuhax instead of browserhax. If a guide tells you to launch Homebrew Loader, use menuhax instead of browserhax.
If you softbrick you'll need to update, and you can't update to 10.4 if you want homebrew/piracy. But yes, you can keep trying.
If you're not getting the red downgrade text, you can try a different entry point or try SafeSysUpdater instead:
A while back, I used this guide to set up RXtools on my n3ds. Now the guide has been updated to say you should use Reinand. How do I switch from RXtools to Reinand?
I switched to SafeSysUpdater a few days ago. On the old 0.4.2 I was using, I just got 'Failure to get CIA file information!' stuff, with SafeSysUpdater I just get the black screen. Same shit, different way of presenting it. I've lost count how many times I've reset my 3DS today alone trying to get it to work.
>Mfw want to support Nintendo but not NoA and those faggots at treehouse
Buy games you want that have as little amount of bullshit behind them, pirate what you feel isn't worth your money or you object against the decisions behind it. Pretty simple stuff.
Delete rxtools stuff off your SD, or leave them there, doesn't matter.
Download the latest release of ReiNand here:
You'll also need the latest firmware.bin which you can find there also.
You can try redownloading the update files. Make sure the .cia's are in /updates. Also check folder permissions to make sure nothing is wrong.
You mean the check update option in SafeSys? Because that was the first thing I did, and I ran it again just now to be sure. Everything checks out. I have everything where it needs to be. I guess I can check folder permissions when the check is done again.
So if I'm on sysNand I'm fucked? I installed rxTools long before the downgrading stuff and haven't touched my 3DS for a while. I always used the browser to launch rxTools.
>always used the browser to launch rxTools
You seriously didn't realize that would get patched?
Why didn't you install another method?
Especially when it takes so long to start browserhax?
>mfw just got my pirate3ds on a non updated 9.2.0.02U firmware to run with zero errors.
>currently installing cia files
im at half chub
You can't open internet browser without an update, stopping browserhax. This started with 9.9.
I haven't used safesysupdater, I don't know anything about it. But any time I got that error, I just redownloaded the updates and tried again.
If you're on a FW lower than 9.9 you're okay, and technically all the way up to 10.3 but you'll need smashhax for that
>I just redownloaded the updates and tried again.
That sounds incredibly time-consuming. I haven't even seen anything that suggests redownloading the updates makes any difference.
>It isn't that inconvenient
>Have to be online for emuNAND
Yes, do it through settings
No, you're perfectly fine. Just follow any guide right now. Good luck anon.
Yes, you're good
The first time my browser didn't finish downloading for some reason. Anyway the 9.2 update files are only like 200MB or something, are you on a limited data plan?
No, it just seems like a pain to redownload them and put them on the SD card every time SysUpdater fails to work. Like I said, I haven't seen anything that suggests that changes things since SafeSysUpdater already told me the cia files are all there. But I guess something must be up since I've tried dozens of times over the past two weeks on this o3DS and have had no success.
Well one N3DS is my sister's. I have a N3DS XL so I figured it wouldn't hurt to set Rxtools up on it. What else would I do with it? I just bought it because it was 100$ at some point.
9.2 browserhax is safe correct?
They finally realized you could just skip the update warning.
I've followed the guide and im suck on fucking a).
When i tab the far lef side of that slider, it passes the yellow screen and the bottom screen stays light gray with no options.
Any advice on how to continue, im on version 8.1.0-19u.
I'm fine to just play the waiting game if I'm on 9.2 with no NANDs linked or nothing right?
Also question about SD card. Because I have no NAND linked or installed or even attempted to yet, if I get a new, bigger SD card, copy/paste everything from the old SD into the new one, will things like Ironhax and Menuhax still be good? Will things like previously bought DLC and games still be there?
I have menuhax installed,if I wanted to changed themes do I use the theme manger for MH or do I just use CCHM?
My sysNAND still linked with EmuNAND so will that stop it from working completely
Reinand works with 10.4 though there's really no reason to update unless you're just dying to go onto the eshop for some reason
Personally I wait a week before updating emunand to make sure it's actually safe, never know if nintendo could put some trojan code in there or not.. doubtful but who knows
How fucked I am?
I was doing all the paste guide and suddenly 10.4 pops up before I update emunand to 10.3
>See this thread
>Check if rxTools is working and all
>Everything is a ok
I haven't touched my 3DS for a while so that's why. And I'm on R-XE 9.8 apparently. Should i update?
It's true. At least for Smash. I only downloaded Mewtwo. Every time I enter the shop it removes all the other DLC and reverts it to just Mewtwo. This is only through the DLC shop though. I haven't tested the actual eShop yet.
You might still be able to update through using the sysupdater (grab the correct update files of THAT website), it's how i updated from 9.2.0 to 10.3 before the 10.4 patch came out. I did it on on my reiNAND N3DS if it helps.
Yes, it also disables any future purchases (due to section 5.6 of the EULA which you should of read) and removes your themes because the Velocidomous algorithm they use to determine if the 4xT3 hashtags on games are legit encounters a 1d10T error on the new update and reads all themes as illegal.
Also, your console gets filled with spiders and you get fat.
I don't, but I do want to go on the badge center, and based on what I'm reading it's the logging in with your NNID that is what's causing it, but maybe that's just a miscommunication.
Couldn't you use Update suppressor? That app blocked the update prompt for any game/app you wanted, wonder if it'd block that shit too.
Still literally zero reason to update to 10.4 though outside of wanting eshop/online play. Which is stupid anyways.
Can anyone clear some questions up for me.
>Have 10.3 N3DS XL
>Have Ironhax, Menuhax installed
I still am not able to get my 3DS downgraded. I've had the 3DS finish installing the CIA files when using the sysupdater. However after the "downgrade" it reboots to an "Error has occured screen"
I am then forced boot into recovery and start the process over. If I fail downgrading again will I be forced to update to 10.4 from recovery?
Could not install app.
Raw Error: 0xe0e083ee
Level: Usage (0xic)
Summary: Invalid argument (0x7)
Description: Invalid combination (0x3ee)
man there's nothing on the internet i can find to solve this im going to pull out my hair
Yes, recovery mode will put you into 10.4. Make sure you use one of the newest versions of sysUpdater. If you don't care, you can format your sysNand and that's how that error gets fixed. Just make sure it stays on 10.3 until the downgrade.
>Already did all the shit
>Nintendo can't stop me anymore
How do I update reiNAND? Do I download the 10.4 files and update with those, or can I update through other settings.
>tfw don't know which game to start first.
>you can format your sysNand
What do you mean by that? After running sysupdater it reboots into a softbrick. I can't do anything other than do the key combination to get into recovery. Last I heard sysupdater still isn't really stable. I can't afford for it to crap out on me and softbricking my console. I don't want to be forced to update to 10.4
maybe i haven't told you enough. i already have gone to my emunand and reinstalled the ARM thingy that you need to be able to install GBA cia. the pastebin i am reading says to also install it in sysnand.
i can install the GBA cia games just fine in emunand, but when I open them they error and I have to restart console.
here's the error i get when I try to install a GBA cia game in sysnand: Database does not exist(0x2b)
Monster Hunter 4U is pretty fun
Got PSMD before any of my Euro friends. Life is good for both of us.
Are you currently soft-bricked?
If no, do a system format (fixes the error occurred error), use the internet browser to initiate sysUpdater and downgrade.
If yes, your only option is recovery mode, which will put you on 10.4. It's game over from there.
>pirates get btfo
dragon quest is safe
How long do these updates take to push out onto hardware? I was considering buying an N3DS in half a month or so.
Regardless, if I do end up on a 10.3 when I buy one, it sounds like I might be fucked anyway based on some of the posts here? Can I still downgrade in any way? Also, if I get softbricked can I still update to 10.3 to start over if I have the files for it?
No I am not currently soft bricked. I am currently on 10.3 with Menuhax and Ironhax
I'm too scared to try using sysupdater to do a downgrade. If it fucks up then I am pretty much forced to update to 10.4
Would it be best to just stay on 10.3 and wait for sysupdater to become stable?
Old3dsfag with emunand 10.3 running through rxtools
Is it safe to update my emunand?
Do I update my sysnand too?
If you wish to update to 10.4 emunand, you can use the regular System Update.
Note: If you are using ReiNand v3.1, then your version won't have "Rei" in front of it in System Settings.
Don't update either one.
Keep your sysnand on 9.2
Keep your emunand on 10.3
>Do I update my sysnand too?
Of course you don't. Why would that ever seem like a good idea.
I don't want to assume anything; within emuNAND, I can safely update through the "Other Settings" option? And yes, I've read that the dev fucked that 1 minor thing up.
Should I even update my emu?
>Using old characters in smash as new dlc and charging for it
>Nintendo making fire emblem fates into 2 separate games to "get the full experience"
>Limited number of demos
Yes, I do mean the "other settings" option.
I did. I'm still able to pirate shit and play my pirated games. If you want to stay safe, make sure FBI is installed on your emuNand.
If you want to access the homebrew menu on 10.4, install a Cubic Ninja CIA and use the classic Ninjhax.
Question. Will DLC installed as cia work with physical copies of 3ds games? I've gotten mixed answers on this.
I want to buy a game that I enjoyed, but if I have to buy the all DLC then I'll pass.
>>If you want to access the homebrew menu on
I own CN luckily. Thank you. You've been helpful. Also have FBI and BigBlueMeny(?) installed.
What a good week.
Don't listen to these idiots, you have to update your sysnand if you want to keep playing online. This is because the network header is changed in each update and you can't get online anymore with the old header, which is contained in your sysnand. Even if you don't play online, it's safer to update sysnand if you think you might play online one day, otherwise you could be banned.
I guess I must've imagined the 220 hours that I've been playing it then, fampai.
Are you the same breed of cardboard wristed subhumans that couldn't play Kid Icarus Uprising without the stand?
>complaining about toys for the fanboys
>thinking content for Amiibo owners are actual relevant content
>thinking Amiibo is DLC instead of a toy and that owners are being given free stuff by Nintendo
The files are US only
The files include
Smash Update 1.1.3
0004008c000edf00.cia (All of the DLC before Cloud)
sm4sh-cloud-DLC(0004008c000edf00).cia (Cloud DLC with mii outfits)
BigBlueMenu.cia (Regular FBI installer can't install the DLC correctly so use this)
Make sure you install the update first and then the DLC
That's actually what I was going to buy. Thanks anon.
>tfw bought a bunch of games on my sysnand
>tfw can't play them because emunand has a different header
>tfw my saves are locked to my sysnand
>tfw 400 hours MH3U save inaccessible
So I just did the whole thing a while ago and I'm playing some games.
Is it safe to update the games on emunand? It says "x game requires an update and will be download on start" but I'm worried about activating the wireless.
I'll put it this way. I'm doing online shit right now in a translation-patch-applied cia version of Fire Emblem Fates and I'm not banned and people can visit my castle just fine. Think about that.
I always get "zip3dsfx v0.6 error opening internal archive" error while trying to boot in homebrew channel after setting everything up with unlinked emunand and rxtools. Is there a way to fix it
I'm in the same boat. I use CTRmanager so I'm guess I can just download reinand and add it there to default instead of rxtools, but I can't find a proper link for it. Is the latest version 3.0 updated in June 2015 or something?
Extract this into your root folder:
Place the firmware.bin into the rei folder
So ya, only update emunand.
It was only a matter of time before Nintendo was going to do damage control.
Is there any way I can take my partially modded 3ds with emunand and just fucking update it to a legit version of 10.4 so I don't have to deal with fucking up and worrying anymore?
I have nand backups for everything but I don't know how to inject it back to SYSNAND since i can only find an emunand tool
I updated willingly because I already own and have played nearly every 3DS game I'm interested in over these past 5 years. The only thing left for me is Fire Emblem Fates, and I managed to get my hands on a preorder for the special edition, so even then, I have more incentive to buy it than pirate it.
You guys have fun, though.
>This remains a mandatory update to New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS systems, and is therefore required for anyone that wishes to use any online activity on the device such as the Nintendo eShop.
Anyone can play online?
What the flying fuck, I didn't mean to quote you before anon. I meant to quote >>324448353
You CANT update your O3DS to 10.4 and use browserhax. Even if you could right now, you'd be lucky as the browser checks for new updates and will stop working and ask you to update your console randomly. After it does that once, you'll never be able to use browserhax again unless you downgrade to 9.2
hey guys, on an n3dsxl, trying to switch over from rxtools to reinand. i reformatted emunand because i tried to update it with the eshop and i couldn't boot into it with rxtools anymore. following the gbatemp guide, i'm pretty sure i did everything but i could have skipped over some stuff because i went straight to cfw installation in the tutorial. when i try to boot reinand i just get a black and red screen. any ideas on what i might have missed?
Nintendo wants to make it appear as if they are doing the user a favor. We all know it's bullshit though since such updates just patch out security flaws.
Updates that actually provided something useful to the user were few and far between.
I am assuming it does so maybe take it with a grain of salt.
It also said that for the previous firmware version. Technically, if you don't use hax then you can't play online. Easy ways around that.
Never update Sysnand. Ever. The only thing you should update is emunand if it is confirmed to be work. So ya, wait on that if you are unsure. Even if you fuck up emunand though, it's possible to start over. Fuck up sysnand and it is game over.
Answer me this.
I downgraded plus got menu hacks and installed rx tools, I also formatted emunand successfully. HOWEVER. After I formatted it and attempted to transfer over my 3ds data from my pc to my 3ds, my sd card became full.
Do I just format the new sd card when I get it and inject my old emunand to the new sd card?
Clueless here what's ---->Sysnad & Emunand?
>Decided to update because I simply have Ironhax installed and don't care for playing roms on 3DS as most emulators suck

Good play Nintendo.
sysnand is the system nand. emunand is a hidden partition you create on the sd that mimics actual fw. If anything ever happens to emunand then you don't care since you can just create it from scratch. It's basically emulated nand.
Ah shit you're right, I did have Menuhax as well. Not too worried though, just reformatting my SD card and gonna just put my backed up files on it. I imagine it should be as simple as that. If not I have another SD card around here somewhere.
No downgrade needed. Check the release dates of firmware and the games in bundles.
sysNAND is the environment your 3DS runs on, menus, themes, settings, and all. emuNAND is a duplicate image of your sysNAND that runs off your sd card instead of the 3DS system itself. The main difference is that you can easily make backups of your emuNAND easily, so if anything goes wrong, you can easily replace it or start from scratch again.
There's also a method of "unlinking" (formatting one of the NANDs) your sysNAND and emuNAND. If you don't unlink, both NANDs will communicate with each other and may cause problems.
Do you mean getting your old stuff back on sysNAND and basically removing all traces of modded stuff? The safest way would be to use EMUNAND9 to inject the very first sysNAND backup you made when you were starting out. It will get you back all your credentials and official stuff and whatever with your NNID. You can also try injecting your current emuNAND into your sysNAND, which is more risky but it would allow you to keep all of your official data, like all of your current saves and stuff like streetpass data that you gained while you were on emuNAND. I've heard that injecting it back like that will simply remove all unsigned stuff and that you should be good, but I have NOT tried it and would only recommend it if you are able and willing to hardmod should it fuck up. The safest bet is just putting that original unexploited 9.2 backup you made at the start before anything, but you're gonna lose some of the data that you accumulated while you were using emuNAND.
Is the phoenix wright trilogy cia region free?
I can only find EU ones saying theyre region free.
Can I install it on an USA 3ds?
What I'm taking from this thread is that if I already have a pre-9.2 3DS with rxtools on it, I'm fine as long as I continue to not update
All this secondary hax stuff is where I get confused
That ended up working. I want to say it's a dick move on Nintendo's part but really whatever. Hopefully the people forging ahead with their hacked 3DS don't experience any super serious problems. I'm done worrying for now.
Thats... that's not what I asked.
Emunand + transferring over my files to my 4gb sd card filled it and then some, thus making my 4gb sd useless.
Was just asking how exactly would I go about using my newly acquired 128gb sd, I hear talk about injection and such
9.8 Old3DS here, I can still install browser and menuhax right?
So it's impossible to unlink now that 10.4 has hit right?
Oh, I'm just retarded. Sorry about that...
If I were to guess, make a backup copy of your current emunand on you 4GB. You can do this with rxTools or the Gateway Loader I think. Set up your new SD card with emunand using the gateway loader. Then inject your backed up emunand using rxTools. After that is done, copy your old SD card data to your new SD card.
Take this with a grain of salt. I haven't actually done this myself so there might be shit I am missing here but I imagine it would go like this.
>you need it to play online
That wasn't my experience. As long as you had the patches set up you could play Sm4sh no problem on a lower firmware. You'd need to update to get the latest patch from the eshop though.
WAITFAGS, DO NOT LOSE HOPE. I was able to downgrade my N3DS through browserhax even when 10.4 rolled in.
So if you want to downgrade DO NOT
1. Upgrade to 10.4 (duh)
2. Leave your 3DS in sleep mode, it will automatically download and install the update
You need to use browserhax (turn off shuffle themes), install menuhax for easy homebrew channel, and downgrade from there.
>You need it to play online
Nope. I don't know why this myth persists. You don't need the latest FW to play online. I was sitting on 9.4 and playing online in MH for a long time.
If your emuNAND is already set up and your emuNAND and sysNAND are backed up already, you can easily unlink it by simply reformatting your sysNAND. If it asks you anything about a connecting online, it won't auto update or anything like that during the reformat process.
Is your firmware 9.2?
>You can't open internet browser without an update, stopping browserhax. This started with 9.9
Actually, you can, you just need to do it fast considering the browser block takes time to activate after you boot your 3ds. Did the thing with my 9.9 n3ds, so I'm sure its there. Or at least used to be
Really? That's weird. I couldn't even play Triforce Heroes with my friends on download play unless we were on the same firmware. I thought online would be the same.
So wait, if I'm on sysNAND 9.2 I how do I access emuNAND? My brother has a O3DSXL with 4.X sysNAND and 10.3 emuNAND. I have and O3DS XL on sysNAND 10.3 but haven't downgraded, I have all the tools needed and menuhax, I also know how to do it(I will downgrade to 9.2). I just want to know if when I install CFW on 9.2 I will still be able to go to emuNAND through DS Profile settings... or does this not work on that ver.? Is there another way?
sorry if shitty english
Thought you had to do a spoof or something.
If you downgrade to 9.2 you get an easier way to get CFW (Menuhax, just pressing L when powering on the 3DS), fucking DS Profile thingy is slow as shit.
If OP is accurate, fucked. The downgrade tool lost its exploit according to some sources. Why the fuck did you update? You can, however, go leisurely to the store and get a N3DS with the assurance the FW will be low enough to downgrade.
I'm happily working with emuNand 10.3 using rxTools. However I kinda want to switch to ReiNand since it has support for a custom splash screen and I had a good idea for it. What does rxTools do that ReiNand can't? Because if rxTools is simply better then forget it. I'm on o3DS btw
I'm also gonna send them aggressive mail with pictures of my hacked n3ds and tell them to suck a fat one for removing the titty slider from xcx
>download a shit ton of games
>never open any of them
>buy another SD for more games
>still haven't played anything past the first 5 minutes of FE:fates
I bought Ghost Recon: SW day one along with the 3DS but then lost the cart. Never bothered getting it again and they took to long to put it at 20 bucks on the eShop.
Now I downloaded it and, holy fuck, I forgot how much I loved this thing. It'ss the most C&C: Red Alert 1-ish feel I've had on a game since C&C RA1 itself. And I don't even like turn based games.
You see the fucking screen for 0.5 seconds.
ReiNand is N3DS only.
It's barebones cfw. If you don't know what rxtools has to offer other than running unsigned cia then going with reinand is fine.
>Create image of current card
>Format new card to FAT32
>restore image to new card
>Resize data partition of new card to the max
Actually, that would be a really easy way for Nintendo to force you to update. When the download play happens, both 3DSs could check their firmware versions and compare to each other. If they don't match then it means that at least one 3DS is not up to date with more recent firmware.
When one of them updates their firmware, the check would still happen trying to do download play. If the other 3DS has a lower firmware then the process will halt again until the other 3DS updates.
In other words it would guarantee that both 3DSs update provided at least one of them is not up to date.
Well at least we are thinking alike. If you don't find your answer here then perhaps search on GBATemp. I can't imagine this question hasn't been asked before.
You know you have to set the hack to work with a specific version at the time, right? You have to go into the HBL and inject the hack for 10.4 if you want to keep it as an entry point in that version.
Question for you guys.
I am on a JN3DS and use a Gateway. I've noticed when installing some .cias that certain games default to japanese language even though they are the U region. That's fine, whatever. But there's one game that will not work for me and tells me to power off my 3DS. Ultimate NES Remix doesn't work. It is literally the only game I've come across to not work. I've tried several different downloads of it. Should I just give up and get the .3DS? I don't like doing that for stuff I want to revisit since Gateway is so fucking finicky about fragmentation.
Follow the readme instructions Mr Lazy.
>3. Open the "fbi_injection/[region]/[version]" folder and copy the "fbi_inject.app" and "fbi_inject.tmd" files to the SD card root dir.
>You see the fucking screen for 0.5 seconds.
My Menuhax picture looks like the BIOS of an old computer starting up so I though it's be funny to have the autoboot that followed be a pseudo-Windows startup.
>ReiNand is N3DS only.
I'm seeing the opposite on its official page on GBATemp.
>It's barebones cfw. If you don't know what rxtools has to offer other than running unsigned cia then going with reinand is fine.
Alright. I'm gonna have to find out how you swap rxTools with ReiNand to begin with though.
I've heard various things about sleep mode. Even after doing everything you need to get it games, is there still a risk of leaving in sleep mode? Mines been in sleep mode for like 2 days. Should I turn off the wireless or something?
>I'm seeing the opposite on its official page on GBATemp.
Are you retarded? That's 1.2 an outdated version that has been abandoned. 3.1 is N3DS only.
Do you even read shit further than the first line?
This is the official Reinand thread
> ReiNand is a minimalistic custom firmware for N3DS exclusively. I didn't want tons of complex code, just something that load and patches firm basically.
You are an idiot if you think its this thread
nope 10.3 though I did get menuhax working just before the update today
I've come to realize that with all the consoles and shit I've exploited over the years. I have a PS2 with FreeMcB and a 250 GB partition on an external for it, a PSP with 128 GB of RAID, a 3DS with 64 GB SD and 64 GB mSD, and a PS3 with rebug and despite practically all of these being maxed out with good titles, I've played maybe three or four per console, even when I have time and I feel like playing something.
I always end up playing older shit that I already played 3 times over in my childhood or playing something relatively new (like that Dragons Dogma for PC eating up my time). Maybe that's the charm, when you're a kid, every game you get feels like a worthwhile experience, but when you can just mass download them at leisure it loses that charm
>Dump hs.app from either SysNAND or EmuNAND using Decrypt9 "Dump Health & Safety" feature. It's in "SysNAND File Options" or "EmuNAND File Options".
I swear people are too fucking retarded to read fucking tutorials. Why do I even link this shit.
>sd card has a million files and folders now
>I'm suppose to know exactly where everything is
>it's a menu somewhere on the 3ds
>doesn't tell you where
No, these pretentious people make shit fucking guides
Personally I set restrictions on myself to make it more enjoyable. When I have a backlog, I tell myself I'm not allowed to play any other game until I beat [x] (e.g. I played through a ton of Castlevania games in a row until I beat everything pre-SOTN). Since you're restricting yourself instead of jumping around it makes you feel more of an incentive to keep playing, THIS is the only game you have right now so it's the only thing you can play, that kind of reasoning.
>sd card has a million files and folders now
>2. Get hs.app from the root of your 3DS SD card and put it plus as many homebrew CIAs as you like into the "input" folder of the Universal Inject Generator.
You couldn't read the second fucking step?
Yeah keep thinking you're great and all
>nowhere to be found on the sd card anywhere
>hurr you're just retarded
ok. I even opened it in emu and sysnand to see if it would show up but no
My recommendation would be to NOT do anything right now and wait where you are. With your current setup with menuhax running and all, you could make the attempt to downgrade and reach 9.2 where it is safe, but the methods available require trial and error. Normally, if anything messes up, you would just be able to update to 10.3 and try again until it works, but 10.4 prevents that now. You would be banking on one shot. Wait it out until a more stable downgrade homebrew program releases or a new method working on 10.3 arrives.
all nes, all snes, all gen, all mame, all n64, nearly every US ps1, all US DC games, 90% of worthwhile ps2 games burned, nearly 100% of xbox games, nearly 200 360 games, etc
oh and 300 on steam. I will NEVER be able to complete the backlog I have setup even if I stopped as of right now. I get sick sometimes when I try to figure out what game I want to play next. What I've started doing is when I start something and dont like it after 3-4 hours, I erase it/break the disc and move on. If I like it, like>>324456324 I just play that one title until I finish it. Then I'll usually take a week break to build back up to the next one and repeat. I'm on my 3rd week of the break on this one though. Finally got around to playing Arkham Knight and I've just felt empty since I finished it.
Still want to hack my 3ds though, lol.
>I even opened it in emu and sysnand
What did you open in sysnand and emunand?
Do you even know what decrypt9 is?
I really hope you created a dump of your sysnand with decrypt9 before you created emunand.
Rightyo boys, got ReiNand working on my 9.2.0-20E N3DS. How should I go about updating to the latest version?
My main entrypoint to homebrew is menuhax, is that confirmed still working on 10.4?
And nobody seems to be telling me where. The guide doesn't and you guys are just calling me retarded.
Homebrew, rx, on the computer? How about you just help instead of wasting your time calling me names
Of course I don't know what this is. I'm not the one acting all high and mighty. I don't know how to use this shit at all because nobody seems to want to actually help
Look. The mentioning of decrypt 9 in the tutorial is linked to the actual programm. If you download that rar then you can open it and see a readme file that tells you exactly what it is.
I was the same way. Literally boot into emuNAND, go into Other Settings, scroll a few screens right, Update. Yes, exactly like you would if it was official.
Too good to be true, that's how I felt.
But if you mess up the downgrade process, like an incomplete downgrade, you'll NEED to reboot into recovery mode and update regardless.
Waitfags can't do anything else except wait now.
Call me paranoid: but my installed CIAs will still work, and I can install more CIAs through BigBlueMenu on 10.4?
Waaaait, there's an Oot 3D exploit? I missed the browserhax train but I have that game
Anon....from one man to another, I'm asking you to please spoon feed me. Where do I go to find out how to use Oot3D to get free games? I would use google, but I saw too many results that had different methods.
Anon, please. Through vidya, unity.
Not really. It can't hurt I guess. It's just switching out files.
Eject SD. Make a fullbackup with a tool or just use emunand tool to make a nand backup.
Then update emunand. If anything happens you can use the backup.
Yup. It's going to be no different than what you currently have, if you indeed have 10.3 emunand working. I've installed a few cias and Im about to install a few more.
I'd post "proof" but too lazy to transfer pics.
I have everything set up already and I boot into emuNAND already. Do I have to worry about anything? I've turned off my 3DS wifi for now.
>All these rats desperate for free games.
How does it feel to be the lowest form of casual?
>This will first attempt to load the payload from SD, if that isn't successful it will then automatically download the payload for your system with HTTP. SD payload loading can be skipped if you hold down the X button. If you hold down the Y button, this will write the downloaded payload from HTTP to SD, if it actually downloaded it via HTTP.
Is there another website for .cias other than www.3dsiso.com/?
I feel like Ive got all I can from that site
>still haven't updated since 9.2.0 something
My 3DSXL was 4.5 when I bought it, but I made the mistake of updating it. Not that it fucking matters anymore.
I can just install this shit whenever I feel like it.
"Pokemon Star Sapphire: Cowtits Edition"
What is this and do I want it?
>friend is out of the country for a few more months
>I already have my 3ds completely set up and a physical copy of OoT3D
>even if he somehow accidentally updates to 10.4 I'll be able to downgrade him
If a downgrade fails, you would be left with an incomplete 9.2 sysNAND environment, which either means that you are left with a black screen even after taking out the sd card, or the other homebrew applications needed to set up CFW will not run as needed. For the second scenario, you could theoretically downgrade to 9.0 from the broken 9.2 and update back to 9.2 with an official game cartridge that comes with 9.2, but I never tested it and there's no guarantee that a failed 9.2 downgrade will even let you navigate menus.
If you end up with a black screen after a downgrade and after taking out the sd card, that means the downgrade failed. You would have to enter recovery mode on your 3DS, connect to an internet connection from there, and update all the way to the current firmware, which is currently 10.4 where all the exploits are patched out. There are no more official means to update to 10.3 from a failed downgrade.
can someone post that pastebin guide?
The chance of that happening, right now, is none to no fucking chance go out now. They'd had have to update their systems on the manufacturing line, have them shipped out, and have the stores set them up in less than a day or two.
And knowing stores like Target and Walmart, they like to clear their old stock out first before restocking newer shipments out onto the shelves. Like those Amiibos.
With all this hacking thing going on one would have expected 3DS game threads to peak but that doesn't seem to be the case. What the fuck are you all doing with your consoles?
This is what mine looks like.
Make sure that the reinand.dat is on the root.
Last I read, smea or some other faggot was creating an all inclusive package for the downgrading process.
As simple as just running an exe, or something like that.
I doubt it though, as someone REALLY needs to recode the sysUpdater program as it is a notorious piece of shit.
They're too busy playing the games they missed for being too poor to buy them. Expect threads when they finish their first backlogs.
It's just too bad that no translations for Cobi and Tara remakes means no thread.
Did a little bit of personalization first; menuhax booting image, themes, homebrew applications, and a bootmanager that functions on a auto-coldboot system. Now I'm just going through some games that have fan translations or mods available for them. I'm considering importing all of the badges from that Nintendo badge game since I don't care for the actual game itself, but I don't know if I want them either way.
Kek, so basically if I buy the thing I will get fucked out of $200 because the downgrade will never come out, and if I don't buy it I will get cucked out of vidya because the downgrade will come out but the 3DSes you buy will all be 10.4+ in-box. Is there a name for this? Schroedickers cuckery?
Iuno, it depends. If the downgrade takes months to come out it could already be manufactured and distributed. And you definitely dont want to buy used because there's a good chance they updated it when checking if it works etc.
>yfw N3DS can't change keys with an update, all they can do is change keyslots and we have all of those encrypted so emunand on latest firmware will always be a thing right away
>Nintendo literally can't do a fucking thing to stop this
Try this guide then.
You might have fucked up somewhere along the lines.
definitely, just trying to help people out who havent done it yet. After you complete everything though, id assume that if you wish to upgrade your card, its merely, copy and pasting your sd on another isnt it (just found out 8gbs is definitely not enough for me lol)
yeah that's what i've been using. i haven't been able to boot into emunand since some anon told me i could update my firmware with the eshop on rxtools. i've been trying to start over with reinand since reformatting. should i just format again and start over?
Legitimate Question for everyone, how do u back up saves, like when i delete the cia&program, and later put it back in the save is gone. Is there a folder on the SD card to back up, cause none of the guides talk about this. I know back in the R4 days, it was merely a seperate file for the saves
>mfw when I was almost a waitfag
>almost missed opportunity to install cfw on both my 2ds and 3ds
>got them both hacked within 30 minutes of 10.4 release
phew man, almost had to go back to paying for games.
Thank fuck I picked today to do it.

How do I go about switching to a bigger SD card in the future if I so need to?
Don't listen to >>324462841
Your emunand is a hidden partition. It would be lost.
The easiest way would be
