-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.

PART 2: INSTALLING CUSTOM FIRMWARE
OLD/ORIGINAL 3DS/2DS USERS USE THIS
NEW 3DS USERS USE THIS
>RETARDS GUIDE: AUTOBOOTING RXTOOLS EDITION
>have an emunand made with either gateways launcher or emunand9tool
>unlinked nands(system format either nand. if sysnand do it with the sd card out)
>if you have rxtools 2.6 installed delete the rxtools folder, firmware.bin, slotkeybin and rxtools.dat
>between 9.0.0-20 and 9.2.0-20 FW
1)download starter kit on smealums github
download this rxtools build
if link doesnt work use this: https://mega.nz/#!4Bwn2TgI!EVN2S5vvOztjsA_w23HNGbKwl8tRqPYICADGtLAJGcw
2) delete any old hax payloads on SD card from when you were on 9.3+(if they're are .bin files on the root of you SD card delete them basically)
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 go into settings and choose "quick boot" and check it. now 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.3dsx
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
Posted in other thread at >>127553826 but:
Really dumb solution I didn't think of until the app's dev pointed it out: All I had to do was rename the 9.5 payload to 10.3 to manipulate the program into loading the proper payload.
CTR boot manager keeps booting RxTools, then that auto-boots Menuhax, then that autoboots CTR, then that hangs on a red screen.
I've tried deleted the extdata folder and reinstalling Menuhax but it just takes me back to this frustrating cycle. What can I do?
I really appreciate the help.
>tfw have a cute as fuck menuhax loading screen while it autoboots
too bad I don't actually play any games, screwing around with this is way more fun
I started going through the process of setting up rxTools, and then discovered a 4GB SD card is just too small for all of this. I have the hidden emunand partition still on the card, how do I remove it?
Is 64GB good, or should I go for 32GB? I vaguely remember someone advising against 64GB on gbatemp.
Instaled RxTools, injected FE:A (EU) .cia but that shit won't appear on the menu
Thought it was FBI so I injected the .cia for BigBlueMenu but this thing DID appear on the menu. Tried to inject FE:A with BBM and it still doesn't appear in the emunand menu (It does appear on the Data Managment though)
What if I don't want to autoboot?
What if I just want to be able to launch rxtools from the homebrew launcher.
And what if I don't want to use rxtools 3.0
Will do, so is there a primer for emuNAND? I have a vague understanding for what it is, but it appears fairly easy to fuck up.
Also, how hard is it to upgrade cfw (for instance, if/when the 3.x branch becomes stable) and will that change anything in regards to the emunand setup. I have no Nintendo ID setup on the system (to my knowledge)
Probably going to take a long while. Daigyakuten is very tricky to translate because it has a lot of period-specific nuances in the language.
New 3DS faggot here.
How to play games like MHX and things that require later firmware?
>What if I just want to be able to launch rxtools from the homebrew launcher.
rxtools.3dsx google it, it exists
>And what if I don't want to use rxtools 3.0
thats literally you only option if you want to autoboot or use the .3dsx
I need some help here.
The files at the top are in the root of the SD card.
The ones at the bottom at under \3ds\blargness and these files are booting blarg but any rom I load crashes at start up.
Are any of the files in the root of my card the issue? Can I delete some of these? I'm don't know what each ones goes to.
>tfw i had to make 3 different NAND IDs
>one for my old stuff and old eshop things
>one for piracy
>and one to use as a dummy for autobooting
i managed to do all of them
btw, i dunno if its a nice bit of info, but it seems that when you format the 3ds it uses the previous ID as a seed to generate the new ID, i formatted 2 times my previous NAND and got the same ID
Can I set CFW up with the commonly linked n3ds-XL GBAtemp guide with the SD card that comes with the thing, or does it not have enough space? I have a 64gb card coming soon, which I know I can just clone the old one onto it, but I want to do this asap before 10.4 comes out and fucks recovering from softbricks. Is it also possibly to follow that guide without ever removing the card from the device? Like above I have a reader coming along with the new card but don't have one right now.
I don't want to lose my opportunity because the stock card is too shitty.
I did it. Too bad I have 4 gig card only. Installed Rhythm Heaven japanese version, it works perfectly. Thanks for the help guys.
Autoboot sometimes hangs though, it only works like 70% of the time. Any ideas why this is?
Use that image as a base to make your own if you want, then copy it as /3ds/menuhax_manager/imagedisplay.png. Go into menuhax manager and choose the option to set the image upon hax trigger.
I made that original post, and it's now occurred to me, for it to autodownload the correct payload, I probably need to delete the previous payload I was using. Only thing is I don't know what the file is called or where it is. There's something called webkithax_tmp at the root, is it that maybe?
I think I've got emunand working anyway, but there's nothing in my SD card to indicate anything is there. I'm going to assume that's correct and just format the sysnand anyway.
>put launcher.dat on new sd and format emunand with gateway launcher on new card
>extract emunand from old card using emunand tool
>inject it into new card with emunand tool
>copy paste everything else
Sorry, I don't really know the best way to go about this since i can't get back to my normal 3DS menu.
Should I just go back and delete extdata, then format in system settings with the SD card out, and reinstall menuhax and shit again?
I really don't know.
The Etrian Odyssey games are less than 1gb and will last you quite a good while, if you need for a time burner. Unless they aren't your style, in which case i can't blame you.
So I'm done with everything now.
Can I install a custom theme on emunand? If so how? I know I shouldn't change the theme on sysnand or menuhax stops working or something.
What about playing games online? Is it ban-proof if I install from .cia files? I heard about headers and region bans and such.
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.
When using CFW how does emulating work?
What emulators are available? Do I have to use emulators through home brew or are there different options?
What are good sites for downloading .cias?
What games have english patches?
So, there IS a way for N3DS users to update to 9.5 and then spoof firmware. I did it myself yesterday. Unfortunately, I'm unable to connect to the Nintendo Network because of that 022 error. Does anybody know how to get past it since 9.5 is the only supported emuNAND firmware?
>format the emunand to unlink them because it said any would work
>realize only now that i lost my saves from the EO demos, and will have to replay the beggining of both Untolds now
No, you need to clone you SD card using some programs, i forgot the name tho.
NINTENDO STATUS: FULL DAMAGE CONTROL
The payload is part of the page I'm pretty sure, but webkithax_tmp is from browser hacks and is always safe to delete. You could try deleting it I guess.
Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove 3D
Man you should've thought of that, I saved the exdata for my EO games
and Persona Qso I should be fine
backed up the saves I cared for (AC, Pokemon Shuffle) with savegame manager homebrew app. I had several eshop games but, from what I know, once you re-link your NNID on emunand, you can re-download them
How safe is it to play MHX online since I'm not on a Japanese 3DS?
Can/Will Nintendo see I'm in Europe on a European 3DS and ban me?
What about the header? That's not an issue for .cia files right?
You mean the Savegame manager homebrew? Well if you can run homebrew you can run the app. Runing homebrew on <10.3 should be easier depending on the version you are on, since browserhax and menuhax both work on 10.3 (and therefore, should work on anything <10.3)
Don't know if n3ds differs from o3ds in that regard since I don't have a n3ds (WHO /POORFAG/ HERE)
>10.4 literally on the way in mere hours
>wait for a stable release they said
>most stable is Julian 20s method which only soft bricks if it fucks up
>people will soft brick around when 10.4 is released and have to update to it
Threads gonna be hilarious in a couple of hours I think I'll keep a tab open
Well it should work then. I'm in the same boat as you and I got it set up fine with a 4GB card and installed Picross e because it's 13MB.
With the space left you could actually install something that's like ~500MB if you wanted to though.
Is this the right zip?
I'm US downgrading to 9.2, Old 3DS XL
When I try to load up browserhax I get this High Security Alert. Is this from the exploit being patched out or my internet connection or something?
So. for all updates i'll to find the cia and install them, yes? I hit update while launching samurai warriors 3. Infinite loop. Can i go get the proper CIA and install with .cia Or will i have to delete something now?
>Probably going to take a long while. Daigyakuten is very tricky to translate because it has a lot of period-specific nuances in the language.
I'm particularly more worried about technical limitations.
You run GBA games as CIA and get 60fps for every game. Retroarch has .Cia versions of the emulators which ALL run much better due to full access of the system
This is a list of translated games https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-3ds-fan-translation-projects-list-and-discussion.380171/
is there a new build of that FBI legit cia installer?
I don't want to go through all the hassle of downgrading just to play AC:NL
Tried a few (6 to 8) times but FBI does not seem to boot. Specs: O3ds 22.214.171.124E
It's going to be a fun couple of days
I would go to a Walmart and get a cheap one quick if I were you
What do i do now?

>eShop is x.x.x-28 only
Wait, so if I have x.x.x-20 then I'm fucked?
Because I have all my games backed up, but I lost the database files and I can't reconstruct them, and even then I think I can't redownload them.
Learn to fucking read, you shit.
I hope you retards are joking. That's a local IP and tubehax DNS.
Even if it was his IP, what the fuck are you even going to do about it? No one fucking cares.
Yes wtf, you just take out the screws and pop off the back. It's designed for end users to be able to do it.
FAGGOT DO YOU EVEN READ THE THREADS? OPEN THE ESHOP ON EMUNAND THAT DATABASE ERROR IS BECAUSE YOU'RE MISSING A FILE THAT THE ESHOP CREATES WHEN YOU OPEN IT

DSTWO IS A LITTLE EXPENSIVE BUT ITS THW BEST AFAIK
KIDS FINALLY GAVE UP OR MANAGED TO GET SHIT WORKING
KEEP TRYING BRO N3DS OR O3DS? >>127556203
I THINK THERES ANOTHER ONE GOOGLE IT
I want to update my 3DS to 10.3. In order to be able to still use homebrew, I need to download the correct payload from Smealum's site (in this case 10.3.0-28), and put it in the root of my SD card for menuhax/ironhax to work after updating, right?
As a retard, I still do not get the guide.
The unlinked NAND thing I do not get.
I was following the OP image guide, I opened gateway, formatted my NAND, and then made a backup and put it on my PC.
Now I'm sitting here confused and tempted just to give up on auto boot and keep following the image guide.
Updated EmuNAND to 10.3. rxTools loaded it fine the first time, did it's set up, rebooted 3ds, loaded rxtools again now anytime it tries to load the emunand it's just a blackscreen, what do?
Have o3ds, unlinked nands.
sysnand on 9.2 and emunand on 10.3
sysnand still has my legit games, emunand is fresh
Can I just re-link my nnid on emunand and re-download through eshop? Should I bother trying to copy saves n shit, or wipe sysnand and keep it 9.2?
That might work for menuhax, but I'm really don't know. For ironhax the payload is in the save, so you need to rerun the ironhax installer which lets you select whatever payload you want.
Fuck. It's not that it's difficult, it's that I don't have any kind of adapter to actually read the card. I MIGHT be able to do some makehsift shit and put the SD card in my crappy backup phone and connect that.
I just set up HomeMenuHax on my new3ds and it said something about not being able to have custom themes, so can I use them if i just install Ironhax too?
And can i use the old version of Ironfall i downloaded a long time ago if its not updated?
Please help out this retard.
>get out you pussies
being smart != being a pussy
when the devs that made the downgrader utilities have pulled them because they don't believe they're stable enough for general use, waiting is your best bet
>b-but muh 10.4
that won't help with a hard brick now will it? you probably won't have to update and try again once they get the bugs worked out, anyway.
if you want to do it in spite of that, go for it, but those of us that wait aren't being pussies, we're being cautious. that's always the consensus here anyway, the only reason it's different right now is because gbatemp and reddit kiddies and retards from /v/ are flooding in.
Did you do anything after downgrading? You have to set up the emunand, unlink your nands, (optionally) set up the autoboot and then update. There was a pastebin for all this in the previous thread.
On the road to CFW, trying to go to the rxtools launcher via 3DS browser and I'm stuck at this screen. Left it on all night, there is no progress.
I've heard you can hold R to help things along but no avail, though my R button is slightly faulty.
I set up the emuNAND and unlinked. I'm trying to get autoboot so I know I'mm actually on the emuNAND so I can update (which I assume is done like normal assured the emuNAND is loaded)
How can I tell it's loaded on emu?
YOU HAVE TO KEEP TRYING THEN M8 WISH YOU GOOD LUCK
DO YOU MEAN AFTER DOWNGRADING? YOU NEED IT TO DOWNGRADE AFTER THAT NO
KEEP TRYING IF IT DOESN'T WORK START OVER CHANCES ARE EMUNAND GOT FUCKED IN THE PROCESS OF UPDATING O3DS OR N3DS?
CIAS ARE FINE FOR ONLINE AFAIK
KEEP TRYING PLUG 3DS TURN OF WIFI GOOD LUCK
I'm getting really fucking confused at how this emunand shit works. I'm pretty sure I formatted my sysnand (took the sd card out before setup was complete, used TinyFormat - the fuck is the point of that thing), and all my downloaded games were gone. Thought that made sense, but now I've gone into rxtools and launched emunand, and my games are STILL all gone. It says RX3D or whatever in the settings, but I don't want to update because there is no evidence anywhere that my sysnand and my emunand aren't the exact same thing, assuming my old Nintendo 3DS folder is just leftovers.
my 3ds which has been playing games from different regions online for months really has been banned super hard anon
do not replicate under any circumstances!
No, you fucking pussy. You have to be fucking trying to hardbrick to do it with Julians.
>once they get the bugs worked out
The fucking HBL doesn't even work 10% of the time. That and all the kernel11 sysupdater githubs are getting nuked. It's not going to get better.
Face it, you are just:
2. a fucking pussy
I can't believe Nintendo laid out a time table letting everyone know the deadline to get the initial browserhax. How fucking stupid is this company?
This guide says I need to have fbi_inject.app and fbi_inject.tmd from my region into the root.
But the eur folder has 3 different folders all with those files in it. Which folder do i need to pick?
not even any reason to downgrade if you're from /vp/, or/as and x/y are available as legit cias which are installable right now without downgrading, brick risk is practically non-existent for that, zero reports of bricks
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME THE GAMES .CIA MEGA LINK? I CAN'T FIND IT IN MY HISTORY.
Yes, the game would then be installed on your system so there's no need for it to be on your SD card.
MD doesn't have any real online features, just saving people/getting your ass saved if someone dies in a dungeon.

For custom-theme installation, the theme-data must be located at SD "/3ds/menuhax_manager/body_LZ.bin". If used, the BGM must be located at SD "/3ds/menuhax_manager/bgm.bcstm".

CFW AND PIRACY
>tfw succesfully installed rxtools and can pirate on one 3DS
>scared shitless to try the other one
Also, tip for everyone: Try and uninstall Menuhax first, run from Ironfall. That way you don't have to remove your SD card and save yourself a heartache when you think you bricked. It also didn't delete my games this way.
>It's not gonna get any better
Do you retards not know how beta releases work, because I remember this dumb meme being spouted even before the alt builds were released. We're two days in.
Ok, so I'm a pussy but will probably downgrade my N3DS today. I have a question though. Last time I used CFW was with the PSP, so there was no way of getting banned and what not at that time. Could I get my Nintendo ID banned if I decided to do this and go play MHX online?
So I should take the plunge and just get downgraded NOW before we no longer have an out ffrom safe-mode, or will the tools not take long to reach a state where a brick of any kind won't happen so waiting would carry no penalty?
I wiped my SD card since it's too small to be able to set up CFW, put back my backup of the SD card (Homebrew Launcher, etc.) and now when I try to launch it from the browser, it just says 'This browser version is not supported'. What gives?
I personally would use it now (I already have on a friend's N3DS and my O3DS) but if you wanna be cautious wait til a day before the maintenance /update comes out and see if downgrading has improved by then
>that heart dropping moment when you decided to update Emunand to 10.3
I knew I wasn't on sysand, but it was still scary as fuck.
That's the plan. The phone's connection lets me use the QR code but the problem now is loading up browserhax is immensly slow and it stops at a red screen and wont go any further from there. I'm not sure if it's because it's downloading something and the download is going too slow or what but I'm probably going to need to find another connection quick.
Is there an easy way that doesn't involve installing another 10 things with 50 steps total if I just want to put a nice custom theme on my emunand home screen?
Currently using the basic white one and I heard you only have to stick to the default one on sysnand
So, should I format sysnand or emunand when unlinking? My NNID isn't here because I had to format to downgrade anyway, and I'm planning on using it on emunand if that makes any difference.
Alright lads i'm on the final piece of the puzzle , just gotta unlink my emu and sysnand to stop that annoying gift glitch and shit.
>Install tiny cia using FBI using rx tools in emu nand mode
>Then while still in emu nand mode I run tiny cia
Then how do I update my emu nand to the latest while still keeping all muh hax?

>tfw waiting to find out if you fucked up or not
What the fuck does that have to we with the fact you think the wii and psp scene have an effect on the 3ds
>downgrading works safely on two consoles with dramatically different hardware and architecture than each other and the 3ds so of course it will get better for 3ds!
This is how retarded you sound when you said that
>I know better about the potential progress of
exploits than the people developing them!
This works the other way on you too. Nice rebuttal faggot
A quick google didn't turn anything up about when exactly it will be, do you have info/a link to it? That sounds like the best way personally, that way I can still go ahead with it if nothing improves before 10.4 fucks it.
Is it possible for me to uninstall MenuHax on my emuNAND and install the Homebrew Launcher as a .cia without uninstalling MenuHax from my sysNAND? If so, how would I go about changing my theme on my emuNAND but not on my sysNAND? I've never really messed around with themes before
Hey dudes, my old 3DSXL is on firmware 9.2, what hack should I use? I keep reading about all this Ironhax/Browserhax/Menuhax shit but I don't understand whether one is better than the other. Also, what is the best CFW at the moment?
>get to the step with CTR
>boot into emuNAND
>gives me 3DS error message
WHAT IF I DO BRICK MY N3DS... Can I still get it back and my NID won't be in the limbo, as if I would've sold the thing and not unlinking the ID?
I know, I know. I'm being a pussy about this, but I'm about to take the plunge and want to cover at least one or two bases before possibly fucking myself.
that's correct for unlinking
to update just go to system settings while in emunand, and be EXTRA SURE the version says something like RX-E 9.2 and go to system update WITHOUT exiting system setting
Thanks to all the kind anons for the help. Now I can play all the weeb games I wanted.
>This works the other way on you too.
No it doesn't. You were the one who claimed that this two-day old beta is supposedly never ever going to get better despite no evidence whatsoever pointing to that being true. If you want to dive in immediately and hope for the best then fine, but don't trick people into thinking that waiting a bit for a more reliable and safe release is unfeasible.
whatever you say
>The fucking HBL doesn't even work 10% of the time.
you mean the completely different software by a complete different developer?
>That and all the kernel11 sysupdater githubs are getting nuked. It's not going to get better.
that's because they're all primarily developed by the same group of people working together who agreed to pull them due to instability. tux and steveice are collaborating, there's a reason they both took their sysupdater repos down.
So let me get this straight.
By dumping my emuNAND, I safeguard it incase it breaks right?
So if say my 128gb microSD dies, I can get another, create an emuNAND on it, inject my backup emunand into the newly generated one, and then just put the files I've backed up from the 128gb sd card onto the new one and it will work just fine?
I hate the idea of having to reinstall all the 90gb of games I put on there.
I don't wanna turn this in to Tech Support General but why won't version 8 of the MHX cia work?
It installs and I can see it on the homescreen but when I launch it my screen is black and I have to turn my 3ds off.
Is 3dsiso.com not reliable?
Make sure the updates folder isn't read-only
Also, anyone know why I might be getting a "This browser version is not supported" error when trying to load Homebrew Launcher? I'm on 9.2 and have cleared cookies and history.

Does anyone have links to Fire Emblem Awakenings USA DLC cias?
I can only find some bundled with the full game or EUR ones
should I format my o3ds or erase the games of my sd card before downgrading because of them interfering with 9.2 ? I have my 16GB SD with just like 2GB free so I think I probably need to make some space right?
The one problem i'm having is trying to boot rxtools from ctrbootmanager. If I go to launch.rxtools.net I can load into emunand just fine, but when I selected "launch rxtools" from ctrbootmanager, it shows the rxtools screen for a second and then both screens go black.
Do I need to unlink my nands? I have no idea how any of this works
I guess something got fucked up when I backed up my emunand. I formatted the SD card, put all the files back on and now it's telling me that the browser version isn't supported when I try to load Homebrew. Is there some way I can wipe this all and reinstall stuff?
N3DS owner, I keep getting a blank screen everytime I try to boot rxTools into emuNAND from CTR
Please help, I'm almost there, I can feel it within reach
IT CAN HANDLE ANY SD CARD AS LONG AS IT IS FAT32 GOOGLE IT
AFTER YOU HAVE YOU BACKUP IN YOUR PC
YES UNLINK THEM
Ok I have a prepared myself and can get into menuhax and all that.
Should I go all the way now, or is it better to wait for a safer release? There's no rush for me to play on my 3ds at the moment, but I do really want to get it over with.
Assuming you don't do something retarded (which a perfectly stable downgrader won't save you from anyway) there is already have a 0% to hardbrick right now.
There is no reason to wait unless you're a dumb pussy.
this might be the most retarded question in this thread yet, but what do I do with the cia files after I installed them through FBI?
can I delete them since they're on emuNAND or should I keep them in a CIAs folder?
>he honestly thinks they won't figure out what's causing the softbrick to begin with and just patch it
even if the devs
the same people you trust enough to run a downgrader utility but not to be able to patch their own softwaredon't figure it out, there's always ntrcardhax, the implementation of which should allow full kernel access on 10.3
JUST TO BE SURE
I KNOW I HAVE THE RIGHT UPDATE FILE, I CHECKED, AND TRIPLE CHECKED
MY DNS IS SET TO AUTO
THE FOLDERS ARE IN THE RIGHT LOCATIONS
WHEN DO I KNOW I NEED TO REBOOT BECAUSE THE PROGRAM FROZE? I KNOW I SHOULDN'T TOUCH ANYTHING WHEN THE .CIAS ARE LOADING.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER FILES THAT MAY INTERRUPT THE PROCESS AT ALL?
I HAVE PORTAL 3DS, GAMEYOB, A NOT WORKING BLARGSNES, AND MENUHAX MANAGER, NONE OF THESE SHOULD BOTHER THE PROCESS RIGHT?
Thanks, google was actually telling me to do something about import.db files.
>the downgrader will improve to the point where softbricks don't happen
We don't know if this will happen or not. It could still soft brick, it could not. Regardless it will always give a warning about bricking your 3ds. The official cia build does that all the .3ds files use another version of.
>the most retarded question in this thread
>not "what is the root?"
>what do I do with the cia files after I installed them through FBI?
can I delete them since they're on emuNAND or should I keep them in a CIAs folder?
Only keep them if you think you'll need to install them again. Once they're installed, they're installed. You can delete the .cia.
>source: my ass
several of the people who have hardbricked or softbricked have repeatedly checked every step and claimed they did nothing wrong
i work in it for a living so i'm well aware people make mistakes, but if you really think the software is perfect and that because it works on most devices it will work flawlessly on every device provided the proper procedure is followed, you have no idea how software works. software fails all the time for unusual reasons that have nothing to do with user error, and that's software that has been tested and developed for years. this utility has been out less than a week and the devs themselves have stated they don't trust the stability, hence they pulled the repos for it.
THEN YOU ARE GOOD TO GO USE MENU HAX TO COLDBOOT RXTOOLS
YOU CAN'T USE CIAS INSTEAD
IF O3DS GO FOR IT IF N3DS IT'S YOUR CHOICE IF YOU WANNA RISK IT
YES DELETE THEM FBI CAN DELETE THEM PRESS R TO DELETE CIA MODE
THERES AN EXE IN THE GUIDE PYTHON IS FOR GAYS
10.4 FUCKING WHEN?
THATS THE FILE THE ESHOP CREATES
IT'S NOT A VIRUS WHAT ANTIVIRUS YOU USING M8?
>whaaa my antivirus said its going to break my computer im scared
Just download it. If it was a virus GBAtemp would have been angry about it and the mods/admins would have deleted it, and if they didn't delete it we would be shitposting about it

What did I fuck up? I'm on O3DS 9.9 using julian's sysupdater with homemenuhax.
>don't figure it out, there's always ntrcardhax, the implementation of which should allow full kernel access on 10.3
Which you won't be able to use if the "super stable and reliable builds" still soft brick your console and your forced to update to 10.4 if you want it to work properly again

WHAT DO I DO
Sorry if it's been asked but if I'm buying a 3DS purely because of the downgrader, is there any point in not getting a New 3DS XL?
I mean, will there be many games that actually make use of the better hardware? Because that didn't seem to happen with the DS + DS Lite.
I JUST WANT TO TRY AND LAUNCH A PS1 GAME AT HORRIBLY LOW FRAMERATES
>I know exactly what the devs are thinking
You could literally pull out the battery while it's installing native_firm and be okay. No one has fucking hard bricked with Julian's.
deleted the post because somehow it ate my post, also don't remember what the third thing i came up with was
>the downgrader will improve the point softbricks don't happen
>better stuff will come out that's either safer or allows for doing things without downgrading to begin with (new exploits or maybe ntrcardhax if you're willing to pay a few bucks for a ds flash cart)
i trust the developers' word over random people on /hbg/
if they say it's safe to downgrade with (and they haven't and probably won't until it's actually reasonably safe to use), then i'll consider it
if they don't say that, then i won't attempt a downgrade, won't softbrick anything, and will still be able to use ntrcardhax
I asked this in one of the threads last night, but maybe someone today knows.
Some Anon from a few days ago mentioned playing a pokemon hack that had May's textures modified so that she has cowtits. I really want to play this. I tracked down the patch to this thread https://gbatemp.net/threads/oras-bust-may-mod-patches.394177/ but it looks like the Star Sapphire mod it recommends has actually been updated to 1.3 instead of the 1.1 it needs and I can't get xDelta to patch it (I may just be retarded and am doing this part wrong). So I was wondering if anyone happened to have this modified version prebuilt as a .cia already, or the compatible version of Star Sapphire on them. I'd really appreciate it!

There's no need for a list, just get one and it will work. I think the only limit is class 10 max, but that's not really a problem from what I've seen.
Have you tried running FBI from the HBL in emunand?
I can't access my emunand on homebrew
>prompt to select rxtools or homebrew
>click on emunand
>black + red screen
>jumps back to prompt telling me to pick rxtools or homebrew
i do too, even for the people i can't convince to wait
i don't like to see anyone getting their shit bricked, that's why i've been sitting here helping people for the past few days even when they go against my advice
even if the devs do announce it's "safe" to downgrade, i'll still wait for other people to test it first. i've worked in both software development (in the past) and it (right now), if i'm cautious about things it's because i've seen what can go wrong and it's not always user error, even if it frequently is.
I have one of these too, and I was looking into it a bit and I think it probably does. I just haven't tried because I'm still installing CFW on my 2nd 3ds.
I know for a fact it was possible to use it on 3ds but like on sysmenu 5.soemthing. Can't you just edit the whitelist or something?
Is the folder named "Nintendo 3DS"?
What do you mean? You can use as many SD cards as you want. You can't change SD card WHILE running a CFW in emunand
You mean on the one you're not formatting? Copy your "Nintendo 3DS" folder to the PC and then copy it back. I'm not sure, but I think TinyFormat doesn't format your SD in the process.
I tried the web browser option form here: http://smealum.github.io/3ds/
I did it directly on the N3DS so it could detect it automatically, but ended up on a red bottom screen and nothing.
What am I doing wrong?
The cia files are all in my updates folder, it shouldn't be doing this.
TRY IT AGAIN UNTIL IT WORKS
CHECK THE NINTENDO 3DS FOLDER IN THE SD CARD IF THERE'S TWO FOLDERS INSIDE OF IT, THEN IT WORKED
CHECK YELLOWS8'S BROWSERHAX WEBSITE AND USE SLIDERHAX
I've never had to buy an SD card, is there any real difference between these 2 other than those 5MB/s?
Sorry for language
So, if i copy the folder on my sd card which is that random string of numbers and letters onto my pc, format the sysnand (without the sd card in?), then copy the folder back onto the sd card and put the sd back in my 3ds, all my stuff will be there, and i'll have unlinked nands?
NO SORRY CHECK 3DSISO OR GOOGLE
GO FOR IT!!!
USE BLUEMENU INSTEAD OR >>127560534
N3DS DOWNGRADE IS UNSTABLE RIGHT NOW
3DSISO OR MEGA3DSROMS
NO AND 3DS WRITES SLOWER ANYWAY
I FINALLY DOWNGRADED MY LAUNCH RED 3DS YESTERDAY BECAUSE THE
OLD 8.2 I WAS USING IS BUSTED AS FUCK
No, no. I only went to the link the smealum site and clicked on where it said it would automatically detect the one my system would use. That's my fuck up probably, I haven't taken the SD out at all yet.
Complete retard here, got several questions.
I set up rxTools 2.6 after following the imgur pic, what now? I boot in emunand, and update emunand to last firmware? How to do so?
How do I install .cia? How to update them in case I need to?
Is BBM better than FBI? Can I install it as a normal .cia?
How do I recognize if I'm on emunand or sysnand? Why should I do something on emunand rather than sys and vice-versa?
Installed .cia are region free?
>the one you posted is just a TTDS
that "i" makes the difference m8
if your card does has the "i" then yes, it will run with the whitelist hack
if not, then no, its not going to work
Been trying to downgrade on a 10.1 n3ds for hours, is there anything I can do to increase my chances?
Yes you need the boot.3dsx file otherwise nothing will happen (going to the site will make your 3ds try to start up the boot.3dsx file)
With N3DS you can go to system settings and transfer the files wirelessly via MicroSD Management so you don't have to take it out to put files on it btw.
Does anyone this?
I would really like a ligit cia of yokai watch.
SO I HAVE RXTOOLS INSTALLED, NANDS UNLINKED, BIGBLUEMENU INSTALLED, EVERYTHING IS GOOD TO GO.
IS IT NECESSARY FOR ME TO INSTALL HOMEBREW LAUNCHER TO INSTALL MENUHAX? OR CAN I INSTALL MENUHAX WITHOUT THAT? SINCE IT LOOKS LIKE I NEED TO INSTALL MENUHAX IN ORDER TO INSTALL THE HOMEBREW LAUNCHER IN ORDER TO INSTALL MENUHAX. I JUST WANT TO USE THEM CUSTOM THEMES BRO
I'm tired of trying to look around for answers so I'll just ask here. I want to use the NNID I've always used for Emunand, but if I format Sysnand, It won't let me use that ID on Emunand because reasons?
If I format Emunand would I have to make a new ID?
My emuNAND is full of worthless garbage I will never touch and I keep getting more from Spotpass. Best way to purge? And is it better to just not connect to the Internet if I don't use it to stop more from coming in?
wait, not him but I don't have two files in my Nintendo 3DS folder, but I'm pretty sure I unlinked my nands with tinyformat. I mean, I'm not getting any bugs with unwrapping cia files and shit.
never give up hope senpai. I needed 157 (!!) tries till it worked for my n3ds 10.3 eu
I tried everything from wifi on/off. charging/ not charging. menuhax, ironhax, browserhax, ninjahax...
really just keep trying and trying.
Some anons said in older threads they had to try it 300 times till it worked
>i'm on 9.9, should i upgrade to 10.3 before downgrading?
Only if you don't already have an entrypoint.
>also i have a 2ds, this doesn't change anything from the process explained in the pastebin, right?
As far as I know everything is the same.
Does the 3DS have a limit on that or something?
I'm not sure what you're saying. Just use rxTools to inject FBI and install the .cia from there, or run the FBI 3dsx file from the HBL in emunand and install it
>Yeah but it is working, right?
>And won't the situation improve?
Maybe, probably, but we don't know when
Other entrypoints are there you know. Just use browserhax or something
To uninstall a cia game do I just delete it in the settings like any normal game?
If the "Nintendo 3DS" folder contains only one folder, then they're linked.
There's some placebo if you want, like opening the FTP and closing it before trying or having the charger connected to the 3DS while you downgrade
You have to hold L or R (depending on your version) while it starts up.
Is there a guide on how to play region locked games? I downloaded Triforce Heroes successfully and Fire Emblem Fates but I get an error when installing Fire Emblem's cia.
Well this was weird.
I wasn't expecting my Mii Fighters to work since emuNAND pretty much means a fresh start.
I lost all my streetpass, mii and eShop data and I don't really care because fuck, kernel access and that.
But all my Mii Fighters are still intact, I guess they're saved in the game and not some kind of shared data betweet the console and the game.
>Other entrypoints are there you know. Just use browserhax or something
So if I were to install browserhax on emunand then I can still access launch.rxtools.net on sysnand if I had to, correct? Since from the looks of it in order to cold boot to emunand then I'll need to install the homebrew launcher+menuhax.
Browserhax does work on RX3D 10.3, right?
I've installed 5 games. 4 of them work fine and everything, but the 5th one (A Link Between Worlds) disappears from the home menu every time I turn off my 2DS. To make it show up, I have to enter some app, exit it and then it shows up in my home menu. What can be the cause of this problem?
Do you need to hold R everytime to enter emuNAND? If I dont hold the system freezes.
What happens if I dont have internet access?
What does menuhax do?
I install the CHMM2 cia but it seems buggy.
i work in it currently
i used to work in software development and primarily worked on... wait for it... c and asm
not like it matters though, not like i'm going to bother to prove it to some faggot in doubt of one of the most basic things, namely that alpha software is usually buggy as shit
