-Menu/Iron/Browserhax all work on the latest firmware again!
-memchunkhax2 is a kernel11 exploit that allows downgrading to 9.2, and works on every firmware including 10.3.
-mch2 readiness test: https://gbatemp.net/entry/10938/ If you get DEADCAFE, you're eligible to downgrade.
>Is downgrading safe?
Could take a few more commits before calling it that. You are assuming some risk by moving forward early.
-julian20 and TuxSH both have mch2 sysUpdater in its beta stages (listed in the 3DS Pastebin)
-New 3DS seems to struggle in even passing step 7, though eventually does work. Reports suggest mixed results with a few bricks!
-Original 3DS's are mostly handling downgrades well, but again there's no harm in waiting for a stable release. 0-day testers are insane!
-Blank screen can be caused by Menuhax. Try pulling your SD card if you get it. Boot, reinsert, change theme.
-Apparently, the Wii U and 3DS use the same fucking keys... LOL
-Hykem is being weird.
-Linux running on PS4
-Cobra Black Fin was announced. http://wololo.net/2015/12/07/cobra-black-fin-an-upcoming-dongle-to-play-ps-vita-isos/

PART 1: DOWNGRADING YOUR 3DS
FOR RETARDS: http://pastebin.com/94r18meL
FOR SMARTS: http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 (Much more detail on what's actually happening)
PART 2: INSTALLING CUSTOM FIRMWARE
OLD/ORIGINAL 3DS/2DS USERS USE THIS
NEW 3DS USERS USE THIS
I made a, seemingly better, starter pack.
It should have everything required point-to-point to get up and running from scratch (pre-downgrade) to rxTools (excluding the firmware files). I also took the liberty of rewriting the firmware .bat file to be more streamlined.
I wrote a pretty thorough readme for the entire process, but some wording is either vague or nonexistent so fleshing out those would be nice. For instance, I could drop the hint at rxTools 2.6 since this pack provides 3.0.
Also, it works during any part of the process so if you just downgraded and don't know what to do next you could follow along perfectly by starting to set up rxTools.
>a pomf cat/lqxrux.7z
Thoughts and suggested improvements are appreciated.
I already have rxtools on my O3DS. Games installed and everything.
So can someone tell me the best method to get rxtool to autoboot (aka not require using a browser every time) without following instructions that make me start from scratch?
Okay, should I be able to successfully separate my sysnand and emunand if the downgrade was shit?
I can't use rxtools because it doesn't have access to the _firm or whatever, but I did separate my nands.
Crossposting from last thread.
Should I get rxtools nightly or 2.6? I'm getting conflicting reports from this thread and the pastebins.
Thanks. I guess I'll reformat sysnand and keep the nand.bin backup just in case (which I was going to do anyway).
Question about 3DS CFW:
Will it allow me to get infinite playcoins?
Does unlinking of nands or formating the 3ds's memory erase all my saves, downloaded games, and will I be able to access nintendo estore to download them again(I have 4swords and I don't want to lose it)?
Will it be easy to get paid DLC into the games after I install CFW?
Great, just one more note: Do NOT enter Data Management in System Settings (MSET) after you unlink your nands, or it will delete all your illegal channels/saves. Manage everything with FBI or DevMenu/BBM
Are you using the nightly? Enter the /Tools/ folder and copy the /firm/ folder over to sdmc:/rxTools/<here>
If the /firm/ folder isn't there, install Python 2.7 and run cdn_firm.py in the Tools folder.
>Will it allow me to get infinite playcoins?
Can't answer your others, but you don't even need CFW for this - just download play coin setter and launch it through HBL like any other homebrew

1)download starter kit on smealums github
download this rxtools build
2) delete any old hax payloads on SD card from when you were on 9.3+
3)put starter kit and rxtools folder in the zip all on the root of your sd card
4)go to https://dukesrg.github.io/?rxTools/sys/code.bin in the browser so rxtools can install data for the first time.
5)once its done quit and this time run browserhax to install menuhax 2.1
6)once menuhax 2.1 is installed go to configurations and set it to autoboot. it will ask you to set a button to launch menuhax. tapping the touch screen is the autoboot option
7)turn off system and go download ctr boot manager from here
8)rename boot.3dsx on your sd card to boot_hb
9)take the boot.cfg and boot.3dsx from ctrbootmanager and put it on root
10)turn on system
congrats! now emunand autoboots and takes like 20-30 seconds from start up to load
>Stuck at red screen
Okay what next?
The thing is, after downgrading back to 9.2 I can't seem to get into HBL again.
Holding L while booting the 3DS doesn't work and scanning the QR code from that one site to load the exploit doesn't work either.
No you aren't using ctrbootmanager. it allows you to access everything you want. at start up you choose between rxtools, pasta, cakes or homebrew launcer. scroll down to homebrew launcher. remember to rename you homebrew launcer to boot_hb.3dsx

>>DEADCAFE just keeps on returning exploit failure no matter what entry point I use
The testing shit doesn't matter anymore.
>>Not even sure if I can actually downgrade
You can, O3DS has higher success rates.
>>Alongside that menuhax freezes up 90% of the time for no reason
Buggy ass software, nothing is perfect.
>>Already ordered 16 GB SD
Good, a bit of breathing room. You'll need to allocate 1GB or 2GB for emunand on O3DS or N3DS, respectively.
>>Due to arrive in a week's time and with my luck 10.4 will be out fixing the downgrade, and I'll fuck something up during the downgrade process and have to update back up
Doubt it. Even then if you don't fuck up you should have no reason to worry about 10.4.
>>Just wanna play pirated vidya, no idea if 4 GB is enough for CFW let alone a single game
4GB is enough to get started. Take my previous point about emunand's space requirements and then consider to install a CIA you need double the space. After setting up emunand on O3DS you'd have around ~3GB space (total) so you could effectively install games up to 1.5GB. Unless you want to install over network which is slow as shit.
TuxSH's version can brick because it uninstalls all cias before starting the downgrade.
steve and julian versions uninstall and downgrade one cia at a time so it they shouldn't brick
or at least have a lot lower chance.

What's a good doujin to jack off to?
Okay I've been trying to get the red text for about an hour now and have had zero luck. Are there any better versions of this shit? Ones that have a higher success rate? I'm using the one from this guide http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2
SYSNAND is 4.2
Emunand is 9.9
Launch rxTools v2.4 with the DSProfile, I never unlinked NANDs so probably linked
Should I bother changing anything with all this new stuff coming out? What am I missing out on? Autoboot sounds cool and there's some little issues like Fire Emblem Fates JP not showing up on my home screen but still being playable through devmen, but I don't know where to start with what
Ok I finally got browserhax to work on 9.2.
Scan the QR at Yellow8's link
And when the blank page with a small slider appears at the top left corner, tap the right corner of the small slider.
How can you not access the eshop? You don't need to connect to it, just open it. It creates the databases, pass or fail.
Haven't bought shit. I accessed the DLC shop afterwards thinking maybe it would let me know, to no avail.
I could back up my emunand and then try deleting the installed CIA but I doubt that'd change anything.
>You don't need to connect to it, just open it. It creates the databases, pass or fail.
Didn't create shit when I got the error 022-2643, made the dbs folder with title.db and import.db and let software settings fix it and it worked.
unlink your nand and then update in system settings
whatever you do, make sure that the system settings doesn't say RX3D, you have to update in the settings where it doesnt say that (boot settings)
ftp method is getting ftp-3ds/ftbony, booting it and exiting with l+r+b+down then stating the sysupdater downgrade.

Relative noob here. I've installed rx Tools and am currently trying to get DevMenu or BigBlueMenu to start up so I can run cias easier. The problem is it won't run the Devmenu or BigBlueMenu cias in rx Tools.
The error I get is this:

I'm running firmware 9.2.0-20 and can downgrade at any time if necessary. What do?
Whenever I mod a system I like to make the theme something absurd and outlandish to surprise the normies in my life
I would still appreciate help
whats the proper way of starting from scratch when it comes to 3ds hacking. my 3ds is at 9.2 and i cant log into my nnid, so i just want to start everything over again? how can i do this?
I installed cakes and NTR, running emunand partition, can run whatever cia's I want.
to get back up to current fw and unlink my emunand and sysnand, I just remove the SD Card, go to eShop and update my 3DS, right?
It's a special snowflake CFW.
It may or may not be better than rxTools and the rest, but rxTools is the most popular therefore will have the most support. In that regard, rxTools would be the best.
>it's just an issue for smash
Just my luck
>risk breaking cfw by installing shitty homebrew
>have to copy and uncopy and copy files over and over again just to get two shitty files
fucking hell mate, why can't this shit be as easy as drag n' dropping an .iso like the psp days? fucking hell
does anyone have a blackcats or gazzele invite to spare? i'd do anything to avoid this shitty hassle
>risk breaking cfw by installing shitty homebrew
The way that the current 3DS exploit works, it would be very difficult to break anything once you actually have CFW running.
Will Nintendo have an update any time soon?
If I get all the files right now and don't go online, I'll be safe, right?
I'd rather wait for better, easier guide and tools, just like the Wii.
I have a N3DS running on ~9.9 and am new to the 3DS hacking scene.
Should I even bother with CFW?
common sense says I need to update to ~10 something, and then downgrade to 9.2, and finally get cubic ninja(is it possible to buy it on the eshop?)
seems really troublesome if all I wanna do is play Monster Hunter X.
You don't need to. You can even play injected games, opening the door to many more gba games.
You need to install the gba cia to the sysnand and to the emunand, that is becuase when the 3ds boots a gba game it reboots to a special mode, so you need to have the game in both nands, even though you'll be playing with emunand.
How do you guys think the IronFall devs feel about their game being the source of blowing this shit wide open? How would /hbg/ feel as a dev to see people use your game just as a gateway to piracy?
I will tell you this, but obviously your on your own in trusting me.
Thus far I have assisted two friends purely via text chat on how to downgrade their O3DSes and they yolo'd it and got it first try.
It's just a necessary risk, however it's the biggest one of the entire process. Do yourself a favor and get it out of the way.
If it makes you feel any better Anon, at least you know that it's a dangerous process. When I did it, I didn't know. My DS soft bricked about 30 times before I got it to work, but I had no idea it could bust my DS entirely. It'll be fine. If I'm that lucky then surely you'll make it too.
whenever they find an exploit in some obscure psp game on the online store, the sales forbthat game get boosted like nothing
shit makes loadsa money mang
but ironfall is a special case (avaiable for free, after all)
>delete any old hax payloads on SD card from when you were on 9.3+
What folders the payloads should be in? It's been ages since I tried any of this hack stuff with my 3ds and I don't remember shit.
Do I just remove the 3ds folder?
Wasn't there supposedly another method to downgrading and homebrew in the works for New 3DS under 10.1 or something like that?
Are people just jumping the gun or does whatever future development not matter in the long run since this seems to be working?
I'm a bit iffy on whether I should update to 10.3 or not.
I know that, that's why I'm doing this right now so I can use recovery mode.
but I don't know
I have the safest region/model combo too, so...
I guess I'll try starting it when I go take a shower so I don't shit myself in fear while it runs
Read the OP. The urgent thing is that you need to use browserhax to install menuhax (and maybe ironhax if you want).
After that you can take your time. Playing monster hunter X is going to require the whole song and dance, for emu all you need is menuhax
its this shit. they should be bin files in the root. delete them then run the browserhax and menuhax again so they can redownload new payloads
OK, because this making lots of sense to me:
>! Use TinyFormat on emuNAND to unlink your NANDs, don't be an idiot by formatting sysNAND with the SD card out. https://github.com/javimadgit/TinyFormat/releases
So you're saying I should make like Nike, Gintoki, and Shia LaBeouf and not bother waiting for that slow faggot?
>mega3dsroms has a limited amount of popular releases and requires you to follow a link
this isn't true at all
>>most mega downloads have been removed for TOS violations or not on 3dsiso
neither is this. there's threads that fucking say [MEGA] in the title and have a collection of cia in a mega folder.
but you're too much of a crybaby bitchboi to look for them yourself. end yourself faggot
I'm fucking retarded
Is there a guide to follow for unlinking NAND after you setup with Cakes?
>s o f t b r i c k
Whoever wrote that probably just recommends Tux version because it worked for him.
Julian version is pretty much brick proof since it downgrades safe mode first, then "actual" cias. So if downgrading fails at beginning -> 3ds still works normally
or downgrading fails later on -> safe mode works normally.
You could wait and see if more stable releases of sysupdater come out or see what happens with KTM, but I think the sooner the better. when that 10.4 update comes out it's most likely going to block most of these exploits
Can anyone please link the decryption key for the first mega.co link under the FBI Injection section. I am either blind or it isnt on this image so any help would be appreciated thank you.
I have a JP n3dsxl, with a physical copy of MHX, do I need to backup my save file before downgrading? Can I still play my cartridge after downgrading?
Also is the 4GB sd card in my n3ds enough to set up CFW, or do I need to get another sd card and redo the process?
I'm feeling pretty dumb.
I googled 'browserhax' and got this:
my 3DS reads it and says I need to update.
I do need to update to downgrade correct? I really don't wanna shit the bed by updating to a version I can't proceed on. what is the latest 3DS version by the by?
I'll help you out.

Is it possible to get HB Loader to launch a .3dsx other than boot? I did the CFW from coldboot guide and now trying to get into the HBL results in what I'm pretty sure is a loop of trying to launch and failing. This could probably be solved by getting HB Loader to point to another 3dsx but I can't figure out how to get it to do that.
waiting for gateways downgrade so i can just walk into a shop, trade in my 4.2 o3ds for a new 3ds and downgrade gw method and continue to use the o3ds gateway card. trueblue dongle was Paradox ( maximillion ) most likely gateway too, dont even care, flashcart is fine, at whatever point flashcart fux up, can install cfw then
And yeah that's the thing about this whole dilemma. Do I risk bricking my New 3DS XL and go through the whole process of updating and downgrading it or do I risk 10.4 coming and fucking me out of any opportunities for a long time. My current New 3DS XL is on 9.5. Snshax supposedly only works on <10.2 right?
I also have a OG 3DS at 9.9 with Ironhax so I'm not as worried with that one. I just haven't gone around to attempting this yet since I have Homebrew access on it.
Could you please send me an invite, dude? I'd even be willing to give you an animebytes/iptorrents/jpopsuki invite in return.
I had an account but it was deleted from inactivity as I was poor at the time and had to sell my PC to pay my bills...
Ok I did all of that and now this is happening. What the shit.
i fucking swear, mega is the bane of my existence
why is this shit even popular
probably which is why you install the hblauncher.cia so you dont have to worry about that
yes it does. its as simple clearing cooking and data then scanning that qr code on that site
not him but did you manage to get downloading DLC on your already DLC owning US copy of Smash to work? or did you end up going for the European version and sticking with that? I'm considering deleting the DLC I currently have and going from there.
KernalTimeMachine. It's wat justpingo abandoned snshax to work on.
from what i've read you should be safe using the julian20 build of sysupdater. If you do get a brick with that one it will be a soft brick which you can just fix with recovery mode.
Can anyone else not fucking download the 9.2 firmware package from the mega link? The percentage is always jumping back to a lower number and never fucking finishes. I had it hit 99% once, but it was frozen there for like 5 minutes so I refreshed.
Shit's giving me a fucking migraine
If you don't already have a hack entry point (it sounds like you don't), you should update to latest (10.3) and immediately use browserhax to install menuhax.
Just grab the starter pack from smea (<-- google those words) on your SD card ahead of time, run browserhax and use it to install menuhax. Then probably turn off your wifi, sit back and wait/read etc because the rest of stuff you have some time with.
You can wait for a theoretical 9.9-10.2 hack that might never come or you can get an entry point working on 10.3 *right now*.
>Following guide to unlink nands
>Remove sd and format
>Saves are gone
You're supposed to format emunand before backing up nand, right? That's what the picture says to do, and it was definitely made by someone who knows more than me, but it still seems backwards to me.
1. Boot into sysNand
2. Remove SD card
3. Go to System Settings from the 3DS home menu
4. Go to Other Settings > System Format
6. Reboot 3DS
7. Insert SD card
8. Boot into CFW emuNand
9. ur gud
What trouble was he having?
I'm in the middle of tinkering with my o3ds. Downgraded it to 9.4, made a EmuNand and formatted that instead. My logic was, if I ever need to just completely wipe everything and go back to 'official' crap, I can just drop my EmuNand and be done with it.
My EmuNand is currently updating through the system settings (I assume I'll need to reinstall MenuHax, which is fine).
I've already installed a Terraria CIA, used a save manager and the crappy snes emulator. It seemed to run fine for me.
What issues might I come up with by formatting the EmuNand instead of the SysNand like I did?
has anyone noticed if games you've installed from CIA's are really quiet?
Like my N3DS is hardly ever above middle volume and I can hear everything fine, but I have to have it turned all the way up and it's still not very loud.
SOMEONE HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHY MY BLARGSNES IS CRASHING WHEN I LOAD ROMS.

WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
Following this guide
just finished the Gateway part- all of my games are gone now, even though I put them back on the SD card. I fuck up someplace or am I just retarded?
IT FUCKING WORKED
all praise belongs to Allah, i finally did it
after 3 hours yesterday night just attempting to open sysupdate over and over again
i finally succeeded after 20 attempts today morning
this is how i did it
>open that ftp horsefucker thing
>leave it by pressing b NOT using the shutdown command
this should work
time for cfw
I'm using a USA CIA with the USA DLC CIA. I haven't bought any DLC prior, even then you could either overwrite it or uninstall it from the data management in system settings.
I noticed the DLC gets wiped if you visit the DLC shop from the main menu.
The problem seems to have been with FBI, because as said it worked first try after installing with BBM.
I've got an O3DS on 6.0. I've read most of the guides, but they all start at more recent firmware. Should I upgrade to 9.2 or is there something else I can use? Can I download the 9.2 upgrade from anywhere?
I dunno, don't own one yet. You try it and report back.
I gave up on BlargSnes because I couldn't get it to work either, the 1.3 and 1.3b both just froze right after launching so I gave up.
PocketSnes seems to be the fastest, CatSFC is medium, CatSFC Plus has best sound but some slowdowns for me. Snes9x won't even run full speed on my hardware so probably useless to you.
Genesis Plus GX is the only option for Genesis.
Nestopia has crackly audio, FCeumm has pretty good audio. Haven't hit any slowdowns on either so dunno what core is faster.
I get bad audio crackle with Gambatte.
not sure, I've been using jDownloader with no issues for a long time, can't say much about internet download manager since I've never used it. try both, but I've only used jDownloader for all this 3ds stuff with no issues (got my o3ds with cfw and games installed, no issues)
So I only have the default SD card for my 3DSXL
Was thinking of a 64 GB and SanDisk seems like the best brand.
Should I get:
or the Ultra version
I was wondering this myself.
Can you move hax between SD cards?
Dude, do you have a DL link to jdownloader? MEGA has me grating my goddamned teeth and the official jdownloader installer from the official dl page is loaded with adware according to malware bytes.
Is there a way to upgrade my firmware to 9?
I'm actually way behind
I backed up the contents of my SD Card before downgrading and installing emunand and junk. Is there a way to get my saves for digital games out of it?
And in addition, Is it possible to get Eshop access on Emunand 10.3 so I can redownload the games I bought?
Thank you /hbg/
Thank you for answering my dum questions.
And thank you for the fun times getting hyped up this past week.
if it's not working
1. Backup emuNAND
2. Backup sysNAND
3. Inject sysNAND into emuNAND
4. Boot into emuNAND, do a system update to 10.3
5. After system update boot back into emuNAND
6. Log into NNID
7. Boot into emuNAND again
8. Open eShop
9. Power down once it loads
10. Re-inject your backup of emuNAND from step 1
11. ur gud
if it's working
1. ur gud
answering questions is my jam
I try to do it as much as possible even with minimal understanding because I know nobody else wants to
wait, do the old 3ds take full size SD cards?
my n3ds takes a microSD. You can always use a micro in an adapter if necessary but you're fucked if you buy a full-size and you need micro.
just grab that one, I installed it with no problems, I think it asks to install some stuff you can just say no to, if not, just grab it off some site that re-hosts programs (softpedia/filehippo). anyways, good luck with all this anon, I'm heading to bed and can't keep helping, hopefully some other anons can
Is it ok if there's black artifacts on the downgrade text? I don't want any risk
FINALLY got to autoboot emunand and updated it to 10.3 after fucking up the fact that both emunand and sysnand need to have a theme set up
Now to figure out how to play the fan translated version of Fire Emblem if
Huh. Full size cards are a bit cheaper for the same capacity, but I'd feel a lot more future-proof with a microSD.
If you're sure the card's only ever going to stay in that 2ds then go for it. If there's a chance you'll upgrade to an n3ds (blistering SNES emu, PSX in development) then pay the extra $10 for a micro.
I'm on 9.4, and sliderhax keeps failing to work. I extracted starter.zip to the root of my SD card, is there anything else I need to do before attempting this, or should I just keep deleting the Browser history, cookies, etc and retrying?

I got browserhax working and I installed menuhax, at least I think I did, since now I can go to the homebrew channel by just holding L upon turning on the 3DS.
Should I install ironhax now too? Would it conflict with menuhax?
theres like 3 videos of anons doing it that were posted threads back and theres images in this very thread and other threads showing they successfully downgraded
dont be a pussy
As someone who still can't get the red text to appear, there's really nothing to be afraid about so long as you actually follow the guides step by step. If you have questions you don't feel are answered, ask or google search. It's not that hard.
I keep seeing to format SD and system memory. If I have a backup of all my shit on SD and I successfully go to 9.2, can I reput my old files on my SD card and be good? Will that link my NNID back?
Hey fellas I haven't really done any hacking/homebrew since the PSP1000 days but is it possible to play pirated games in the Wii U yet?

just end my life
So I updated my emunand and now it keeps trying to prepare the homescreen but in the process it reboots into sysnand (which gets caught by the autoload into rxTools and essentially loops). Advice?
I was scared shitless because my 3DS is the limited edition FE:A one.
But you know whats scarier? If Nintendo releases 10.4 and you soft-brick. You're absolutely screwed then.
Don't wait around. Do it now before Nintendo tries to stop this, the guides absolutly work and I'm installing the fan translated FE:if right now
So after I installed browserhax, menuhax, and ironhax using the starter file from the smealum github, can I delete the ftBRONY folder in the 3ds folder? It's not important for CFW, downgrading, or just accessing the homebrew channel, is it?
A few minutes. Give it some time and if you don't see the update CIAs installing after 5 minutes then it probably froze
on an unrelated note, what is with the captcha giving me all these street signs
I've had good download times from downloads that are from 1fichier and mega
Other than that it's pretty shit though, I agree. If it was any slower it'd be faster just to download a .3ds file and convert it myself.
New 3DS from 10.3.0-28U back to 9.2 here. I must have spent 2 hours thinking I was fucking it up horribly on an N3DS but no: it turns out it's just really fucking finicky to get started and once the downgrader does load the rest of it is fairly easy.
So anyone who's giving up: keep doing it. Seriously. Also fuck the deadcafe check: it never worked for me but here I am now.
i managed to get rxtools running, even had a few things installed on emunand, but i fucked up and completely erased my sd card due to a comedy of errors involving the undo key, now when i try reinstalling rxtools it doesn't load. it either freezes loading or doesn't load at all. what should i do?
so quick question, i backed up my 3ds games to my computer, kept the nintendo 3ds folder intact
i downgraded and modded my og3ds
i upgraded the emunand to 10.3
i put the games back onto the memory card and they dont show up
whatd I do wrong?
some help would be appreciated I don't really know where to go from here
Just softbricked my 3ds for the second time in a row, updating back and trying again in a couple minutes, I'm not stopping until it's either a full brick or plays the goddamn pirated games.
Well, that's a load of fucking shit.
9.9 vanilla start
went to 10.3
setup HBL, menuhax, and ironhax
downgraded to 9.2
formatted sysnand to unlink nands
Wi-fi settings downgraded during the reformat, can't connect to WPA2 wifi.
Tried switching to open wifi, and the 3DS refuses to connect. I get error code 51300, 51301, and 51302
I can't get rxTools to boot, if I open the browser links it just tells me it's loading but never does and from ctr boot it installs half way and then gives up.
I used the build from here on my N3DS and extracted the folder onto my root.
So I got the red text and everything was going well with the downgrade, I got and and done something else for 10 minutes, and now I've come back and I'm confused.
The blue power light is on, the WiFi light is on, but both the screens are off. What should I do?
I got browserhax working and installed menuhax on a 9.7 O3DS, that's the least I need to have all my bases covered now to be able to yarrr Fates one way or another down the line right? Don't really feel like taking my chances right now, I'm hoping someone will figure out something simpler and safer by then.
Nah I'm giving up for now. I've gotten the red text twice in the past four hours and both times it froze on it. It doesn't even make it past step 7 now. Maybe I'll try again later today or I'll get lucky and someone will release something more stable.
>yes it is.

How do I get browserhax working when I've downgraded to 9.2.0? It only opens a page with a slider I can't actually interact with on it. I deleted the old payloads, according to >>127527694
>I'm dumb and don't open any folders at all
You guys are kind and I finally got to play Story of Seasons and Persona Q today.
It's like second Christmas.
I don't know how you guys put up with my questions, because I certainly wouldn't be able to.
the jews did this
i was merely attempting to express my sincere gratitude to my fellow anonymous brothers
keep tapping the far right end of the slider under till homebrew launcher shows up, if it doesn't work clear cookies/cache and initalize save data then try the process over again
I bet you're part of this huh faggot?
unlink nands then it wont be an issue.
i-i've already said thanks! no way i am gonna say it again!
>tfw accidentally did an overwrite on my title.db
How do I rebuild it? I did a backup of everything else so I still have my games and savedata
>Follow the guide to a fucking T
>rxtools firmware download is fucked up
>3DS is currently not showing anything I backed up from my SD card on the menu
>can't even boot into the homebrew launcher
I pulled out my ancient D-Link, but now shit is just getting really strange. I try doing a search for a wifi access point, and it immediately tells me that the security settings are not supported, despite the fact that there isn't a list of wireless networks, and I haven't selected one.
yes which is why you install 1.1 cia then the v8 mhx.cia
so delete the v8 mhx.cia( dont worry this doesnt delete your save data. deleting the game with system settings will say it will but it doesnt as MHX saves to extdata).
install the 1.1 cia then reinstall v8 mhx.cia
Faggots who can't get sysupdater to do work, try using menuhax and naming sysUpdater.3dsx as boot.3dsx and putting on sd root, worked for me.
Basically boot straight into sysupdater instead of hb launcher.
So I followed everything to the T. The only thing stopping me is rxTools and I'm started to get pissed as shit.
I've tried every rxTools available to me thus far and each and everyone of them bug in some way. What pisses me off further is that one of them "worked" and when I went to restart to see if it'll boot again, it just fell back into the infinite "booting" cycle like 11-24 does.
Got a N3DS. Is it easier just to use another CFW or am I fucking something up?
>got a hackable Jap N3DS a little over a week ago, installed CakesFW and pirated shit
>downgraded my o3DS and installed rxTools + updated emuNAND to 10.3
>not sure what I should do with my 9.9 N3DS XL
It's not stupid to... not want to risk a brick on this, right? It has most of my legal games and saves, plus it's an MH4U LE system. PLUS IT HAS AN IPS SCREEN.
If I've already got a N3DS and an o3DS with CFW set up, should I risk downgrading this N3DS XL?
Wait, I'm looking at this guide. He reformatted his 3ds, but still has the new Internet settings. Why did mine go back to something that looks like it was from the DS?
