Repost from last thread:
Hey guys I had a weird problem. I'm currently following this guide: http://pastebin.com/WVszD3Tm and I got up to step 8 and I couldn't get rxtools to launch again. I tried deleting my browser cache/history and both holding R and not. When I looked at the system settings it no longer said RX 9.2, just regular 9.2. I'm currently reinstalling Gateway and starting from scratch. What went wrong?
yup, as long as you can find the same folder as the game is in after you re-download the game (from eshop i assume you'll), just overwrite the new save file with your old one
I keep pressing Y and nothing is happening, do I wait or start over
>go to download CIA of game I really want
>[This file has been deleted]
I'll never get to play Tetris Ultimate, will I?
stay mad yolofags
also, if anyone cares, legit cia installation through modded 10.3 fbi is still brickproof as far as i'm aware. the functionality of the modded 10.3 fbi is (more or less) being ported to official fbi if you want to wait for it to be less of a pita to use.
You should. For that go into emunand, system settings update. MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN EMUNAND.
Old 3ds? Follow this tutorial
The emunand is a partition of your SD card that is hidden from the user.
>now Tux's GitHub is 404 too
What's up with that??
Can you update Emunand when you are using a New 3DS?
RX - E 9.2 CFW just now and I'd like to play newer games.
PastaCFW just crashes me to main menu instead of applying its spaghetti patches help me
his github is fine
no, the devs involved took it down because they don't want people using it because they feel there is still a brick risk associated with their software not meant for general use
if you softbrick you'll have to update to 10.3. if your DNS is set to tubehax it won't be able to connect to the internet properly to download the update and you can't change DNS settings from recovery so you'll be stuck
had the same issue until it randomly worked after about 100 tries. just keep it up
you can replace your menuhax boot.3dsx (SD root) with the sysUpdate.3dsx. that way you can just boot directly to sysUpdate. should speed up the retries a lot over having to reboot to HBL then launch it
>tfw downgraded n3DS to 9.2
So, BigBlueMenu or FBI?
Hey, anon that has access to the OP Pastebin account, add the links in this pic http://i.imgur.com/1Z5xMn9.png to the guides to see if you can get past the 9.9 browser update nag, if it's not there already and I'm being dumb missing it
yup, tux and steveice took down their versions of sysupdater because they weren't intended for general use
there are mirrors available if you want to use them anyway. i'm just
If you want to read all the shit that comes with it, have fun.
TL;DR: It prevents some glitches.
No one was ever banned from using CIA, except some cases where people fiddled with saves.
And to the red screen anon from here >>127565747
FOR PEOPLE HAVING ISSUES WITH SYSUPDATER
>First, you have to use an entry point and install menuhax.
>Once that is done, download the attached sysUpdater build by @julian20 and extract it. Then place 'sysUpdater.3dsx' NOT 'sysUpdater.smdh' onto the root of your 3ds sd card.
>Now either back up the 'boot.3dsx' or rename it, as long as there is no longer a file with the name mentioned on your sd card. Now rename the 'sysUpdater.3dsx' that you placed on your sd card to 'boot.3dsx'.
>Next, you need to create a folder called updates on the root of your sd card. You then have to download the cias that you will be using to downgrade and place them in the updates folder you created (can't help you here). Now put your sd card in your 3ds and launch via menuhax.
>It should now work with a higher success rate than before
Format whichever one you want formatted. You can do both if you really want.
You have to take the SD card out to avoid deleting your "Nintendo 3DS" folder for whichever one you aren't formatting. If you don't have anything installed, then it doesn't matter.
>Incorrect TMD version
>even though I have the right fucking region and version out
I'm about to jump the shark.
So I did everything right, from your guides and the sticky ones, I've unlinked my nands and playing pirate games perfectly, not even softbricked once.
I started to miss my eShop, Streetpass and Mii data from before all this and read about cloning sysNAND.
This is my question.
If I started doing everything from a fresh start in emuNAND (creating a profile, new streetpass plaza data, etc) if I clone my sysNAND will it fuck up my emuNAND or it'll just overwrite it without risk of breaking something while still keeping emuNAND safe and unlinked?
What about my pirated games and DLC?
>The emunand is a partition of your SD card that is hidden from the user.
Oh, I see.
Well, I just pressed extract on the sd card root to see what would happen and it looks like it's extracting the emunand.bin. Fantastic. Thank you for helping out my stupid ass anon.
Yes well I'd like to put the mirror for Tux in the pastebin, so please someone provide the latest one.
Have you tried reading the guide you're supposedly following?
Or reading the OP?
Or looking on GBATemp?
Or using fucking Google?
You're not going to make it if you need to be spoonfed this bad.
>tfw got everything up and running and realized theres no games I really want to download besides MHX and FEfates
was it worth it
Yes. it was worth it. all the heartache, headache, worrying, every bit of it.
But, Even if you don't want a buncha games, download a few you think you might like. give some random ass games a chance. it's free. so why not?
Guys please let's torrent these cias, 3dsiso is utter shit and we can make something better
If you have good internet connection seed cias and we'll save magnets here in a pastebin
What do you think?
Well the OP guide says that once it's running then move to a second entry point.
But here says there are exploits recommended to be installed:
What I want to know is who to follow anon, sorry if you're not having the best of days. It's not as if there isn't going to be an influx of questions because of recent happenings.
But hey, fuck you too.
The reason they are linked is because they have the same serial because they are copies of the same system so they are copying all their shit to the same folder.
Whenever you format you get a new serial, and that's the only point of formatting, to make them have different serials.
The only difference between formatting sysnand or formatting emunand is which one gets formatted. If you have games installed and you want to keep them on emunand, then you should format sysnand. That's it.
trying to update emunand to 9.5 fucked my whole thing up and now I can do it ALL over
is 9.5 even required for some games? I know MHX doesn't need it
Is there a way to have custom themes while on NTR?
NTR doesn't boot for me if I have a custom theme.
So, I got everything working right, and it autobooting into emunand...
If I don't hold down a button after the rxTools screen, it just gives me an error message that tells me to restart and try again.
What did I fuck up, and how can I unfuck it?
does emunand9 unlink NANDs for you as part of the process or do I have to do that myself?
the guide talks about unlinking NANDs underneath the "alternative gateway method" so I'm not sure if I need to do that still
I think we're faster than the vita generals now
Alright, I've downgraded, now I am considering switching to a new SD card with a bigger storage so I can install CFW
What happens to my original 4gb SD card that had menuhax and the rest of the stuff I had? Do I have to transfer files? Do I need to redo anything?
Do you need to do anything fancy to install JPN cias?
Also time to finally see what all the fuss is about with Monster Hunter. Think I'll just start with 4U since it's completely english. How playable is it without a circle pad pro?
So if you update your emuNAND to 10.3, you cant install BlueMenu?
In case I dont have internet, I cant access extools, is there other alts?
I installs CHMM2.2 via FBI but the app doesnt work, it didnt even see any theme I download.
Oh well, I seem to have rolled back a few months inexplicably, but whatever. Think all I really lost was Picross save data and a couple of days worth of badges. Hopefully there's stuff that'll make those less P2W and I can catch up quickly. Though my backup is still really big, I get the feeling the files are still there and are just doing nothing, wasting space.
So I got my 3DS down to 9.2 and booting properly, and have MenuHAX working as well. Is there any rush to get CFWs working before 10.4 comes out, or can I wait on my larger SD card to show up in the mail?
If you have an emunand it will take a bit of extra effort to copy that too, but it's not hard.
>backup emumand with emunandtool
>create new emunand on new card with emunand9
>use emunandtoold to inject backed up emunand into new card's emunand partition
And then just copy all the files and you're good.
You can use bluemenu on 10.3 emunand.
cias need RF spoofing.
You can extract and inject emunand as you please.
Look at the bottom of the tutorial. I would recommend updating your emunand now.
For the faggots that get stuck on the red text when attempting to downgrade, some anon helped me yesterday with that, if you're using browserhax that shit will most likely keep freezing for a million different attempts before going through, try using menuhax instead (or ironhax if you have access to it)
Okay you jerkykongs.
IF YOU ARE RUNNING N3DS AND YOU CAN'T GET MENUHAX AUTO LAUNCH WORKING YOU NEED TO INSTALL MENUHAX WITH NINJHAX 2.5 AND THEN GO BACK TO 1.1b TO LAUNCH CFW.
I don't know why this works like this, maybe this is common knowledge. But fuck me I had to figure it out the hard way. But now PastaCFW won't load. It just freezes HBL.
Oh c'mon no one knows?
CAN WE STICK THIS IN OP PLEASE
PART 1: DOWNGRADING YOUR 3DS
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
>To install MSET with the internet browser, simply put the rxinstaller.bin (from the MSET folder) on your SD card root. Then launch the browser and go to http://dukesrg.github.io/?rxinstaller.bin or http://dukesrg.no-ip.org/3ds/cakes/?rxinstaller.bin . It should freeze and crash, and send you back to the home menu. MSET should now be set up.
>To launch rxTools via MSET, just turn on your 3ds, go to System Settings-> Other Settings-> Profile-> Nintendo DS Profile, and rxTools should boot.
I've been trying to install MSET on my Japanese region o3DS with 4.X, but it's not working. Anyone know what I could be doing wrong? I have the rxinstaller.bin on the root, but were there any other files I needed in my SD card? I'm running rxtools 2.6 currently.
Does someone have an updated guide on how to set up emunand?
If this is supposed to be accurate, I can't seem to find launcher.dat on the gateway page...
I also tried using rxTools, and the package didn't have fucking cdn_firm.exe
Oh shit, well that's why no one uses it
FBI isn't for installing 4GB games, anon. Fags are constantly posting pics of it failing because they are using it like that.
It's not shit, installing games is just outside it's scope.
>Does someone have an updated guide on how to set up emunand?
There's nothing to update, other than you should use emunand9tools (if that's its name, I'm not sure, it's something like that) instead of the GW launcher.
But if you want to download the GW launcher, just get THE ONLY DOWNLOAD FROM THE GW PAGE. It's a .rar that contains a bunch of stuff, along with the launcher.dat you're looking for.
You can't do it from rxTools. As I said, use the new emunand9tool.
Use this guide:
Just get devmenu or bigbluemenu and install it with FBI.
because the NAND is encrypted unlike a PC, so only a NAND created with that 3DS keys can be read in that 3DS, if you don't have a backup its literally impossible to recreate an AES encrypted filesystem from scratch
Fucking up your OS installation is radically different from fucking up the flashing of the firmware on an embedded device. Not to mention on a device that is designed to be secure. If you don't have a NAND backup and you fucked up the firmware, you are completely out of luck. The firmware in it was specifically for your 3DS.
I can't get ninjhax to boot rxtools. It's giving me the option in the homebrew menu, but it just goes to a black screen when I select it. Browser version works fine, so I'm not sure what the problem is.
Any recommended hidden gems for 3ds?
Been through that twice and even restarted automatically on my O3DS and got softbricked.
Wonder if it's worth keep trying or it's something else.
I did goofed and installed rxTools 2.6, do I have to replace it with the lewer version and re-install everything?
How do I get custom themes and official Nintendo themes working on my emunand?
Using CHMM2 just applies them to my sysnand. I tried doing it with the option to install custom theme in menuhax and it said it was successful but I still see the standard black theme on my emunand.
Then I downloaded a cia file which has a ton of official Nintendo themes packed in. After I installed it and went into the theme menu in emunand, none of the new themes were listed there.
Please help I just want to have lewd waifus as my 3DS background.
Do you have a browser? Everything is covered in this thread:
You only need to change some of the rxTools files, but there are no clear benefits to 3.0, so you actually dont need to bother.
Also, I can't download .cia files that are through Mega... the percentage keeps decreasing after increasing and never ever fucking ends. An hour later and it'll still be going back to 7%. If anyone who has a .cia for Pokemon Alpha Sapphire could be nice enough to upload it for me through anon,.,files or zippyshare? The other 3 pokemon .cia files would be nice too.
guys, i got a question
so to use emuAND we need to go on launch.rxTools.net
But what if the site goes down or we dont have internet? how can we use our pirated games then? is there a option to do this offline?
Can someone just tell me which games even need 9.5 emunand?
Because if only a few games I don't care about need it then I won't bother
Bumping for an answer to this. Every youtube video and forum instructions are the same unhelpful shit that don't actually show how they set it up, or why it wouldn't work with how I have it now.
I assume there are several builds of DEADCAFE tester, because I couldn't get past the freeze on this screen and was hesitating to downgrade because of it, but julias20 sysUpdater has worked at the first attempt, that means memchunkhax works fine on my system.
There are alot of filehosters on 3dsiso. Iam sure you find one thats suited for you.
You could also just search for a torrent file.
Some games are RF spoofed or FW requirements are spoofed so that out of region consoles and new 3ds can play them.
Just use another version of rxtools if you have problems with it currently.
My internet's been fucking up recently so I can't get the 9.2 downgrade right now, but I did manage to get browserhax and menuhax working. As long as I don't update, I should be able to downgrade right?
Yeah I didn't mean to quote anyone.
I think I figured out my issue though, I don't have the rxinstaller.bin, I had the rxinsaller.3ds file from the mset folder in the rxtools 2.6 release.
Anyone know where I can find the bin version of it or is it something I change the extension of myself?
I've been trying to downgrade my n3DSXL for almost 9 hours. Should I just give up?
I'm sick of getting the "Failed to get CIA file info!" error.
I can't go on any more.
I need a hug.
Heeelp I get this trying to install bluecardfix.cia
I get an error trying to install bluecardfix.cia

If it fails during downgrade and 10.4 comes out and fixes the exploit, you're in trouble. Downgrade as soon as you can, and always make sure to triple check your files to make sure they're right.
People keep saying "The only reason is to play games requiring a higher version. Otherwise, you need to find crytopatched versions of these roms." and "There are indeed some games that require a higher firmware. Along with that, each year (or within the year) that requirement slowly makes its way up to the 10.0 update. I believe code name steam, among others, requires 9.4"
But I dunno man
MHX was fine on 9.2 emunand
Damned new threads, let's try that again.
I'm trying to create firmware.bin.
The .bat doesn't work, I've XP and maybe it's because that but it says that bitsadmin isn't a command.
The python script downloads three firmwareXXXXXX.bin but, if I'm not mistaken, it should merge them into a single firmware.bin but that doesn't happen.
Trying to inject hs.app in Decrypt9 but it's not showing up, what the fuck am I doing wrong?
I'm on N3DS and rxtools 9.2
So close, yet so far.
No, I thought that was N3DS-only, and still I have a save I highly value that isn't backupable by svdt so I'd only format as a last resort at 10th which is the last day before the very likely update.
And to worsen things here, my 3DS is only half charged and my charger apparently died, and ordering one in my shithole will only arrive in like a week or more. If I softbrick again and reaches red light it'll refuse to update and I'll be waiting for 10.4 with the shitty error.
If you follow the thead I linked its actually pretty safe. The only way you can brick is if you fuck-up the updating process WHICH IS NOT A REQUIREMENT to get emunand going.
Updating to 9.0/9.2 just allows you to coldboot. The other way people fuck up is not a) making a nand backup and b) fuckup updating their sysnand instead of their emunand (sometimes by not unlinking their nands).
Press during boot and select HBL. Guy on gbatemp had the same problem, I dont know what to do so I recommonded setting up homebrew completely new or just use the bootmanager.
.bat? You mean .py.
You can access eshop.
Yes, with rxtools.
MH4U N3DS XL downgraded from 10.3E to 9.2E with julian's sysupdater. Took about 15 tries using Ironhax. I was actually sweating at the 'rebooting in 10 seconds' step. It feels so good though.
I CAN PLAY ENGLISH PATCHED MHX NOW HOLY SHIT!!!

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. if this isn't working use this data folder: http://www115.zippyshare.com/v/H52AIE7a/file.html
put this data folder inside the rxtools folder
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
I have autoboot on hold L and I can boot and run HBL. But anytime I launch something it just black screens. Ninjhax 2.5 seems to be blocking loading Pasta and Reinand. But 1.1b can load it just fine, but I can't fucking install Menuhax with 1.1b.
Dear god what do.
This was probably already asked, but i somehow ignored the answers until now.
How do i launch rxTools without using the browser? I don't see it on menuhax. And it's not like i can actually set it in the first place.
Google tells me something about using ninjahax, but i'm a retard and think that i need ninja cube or something for that.
I found it in a drawer, I don't know where it came from.
I have new 64GB microSDs coming that I bought $15 each though.

I'm kinda in doubt about how to play online, I keep seeing roms as .3ds and .cia, and I get that I can use my 3ds files to "sign" the .3ds and convert them to .cia to run on my console.

Jesus, which guide do I look at first? The OP is a fucking mess right now.
Asking one last time, I have ninjhax working fine, and I have rxtools working fine. Trying to get the two to work together seems to make the 3DS shit itself. Any suggestions.
Just downgraded N3DS, got all the sweet stuff installed, FBI, RXtools, and what not. Managed to get a game running and everything.
The last thing I feel I need to do is get it to where I can play online, what kind of guide should I use for that?
Who else /waiting on a better fucking CFW tutorial/ here?
Menuhax has been fucking me all of last night and today. I still can't get the fucking thing to launch anything. Only way I can launch anything via hombrew launcher is 1.1b Ninjhax.
Ninjhax 2.5 launcher via autoboot Menuhax will not do literally fucking anything on my N3DS.
I'm working on it now. So far I've tried.
>Installing Menuhax with 1.1b Ninjax which doesn't work
>Installed Menuhax autoboot with 2.5 Ninjhax which worked but black screens anytime I launch anything
>Installed Menuhax via 2.5Ninjhax and then replacing the boot.3ds with the 1.1b hoping it would just boot via 1.1b but it seems to hardcopy 2.5 ninjhax which doesn't do shit
Right now trying to install Menuhax via Browserhax and seeing if this works any better.
So I'm attempting to install RxTools or whatever right now and the link to the Firmware.bin on the imgur guide says I need a decryption key to download the file. The fuck is the password?

Can I use Streetpass just right with emuNAND?
I don't care about starting with zero tags again, in fact I think it'll be fun.
And using the Plaza in emuNAND means I can pirate in stuff like the other games and the paid hats and borders?
>mfw someone tells me bringing your 3ds from standard 10.3 to fully set up pirate region free machine is an easy and quick feat
Cool, also a couple more questions. This one is probably a retarded question but I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to leave the CIA files inside the SD card after I install them right?
Also for games that can play online, something like triforce heroes, all I have to do to play it is make sure I follow that guide right?
Pretty much followed that one gbatemp guide to a T, had 0 issues the whole time. So pretty much
Works on my machien :J
Sorry I can't do much for you anon.

Is it possible to cold boot to emunand on RX3D 10.3? Or downgrade to RX3D, say, 10.1? Or do I need to run this on sysnand? I'm only on 8.1 on that though. I just want to ensure that I can access my emunand without needing to go online to access launch.rxtools.net.

Tested installing Menuhax via Browserhax and still nothing.
N3DS 9.0 installed Menuhax via Ninjhax2.5 and Browserhax and it won't do anything but black screen.
Yet Ninjhax 1.1b works perfectly fine. But unfortunately you cannot fucking auto boot to HBL with Menuhax using 1.1b.
If anyone has any other bright ideas let me know.
You only can setup coldboot on sysnand. There is a section in the guide that explains how to update your sysnand to 9.0/9.2. THIS MIGHT BRICK YOUR 3DS IF YOU ARE RETARDED READ THE WARNINGS.
You can also set up mset.
Ok, got the "Updates installed. Rebooting in 10 seconds..." thing about 2 or 3 minutes ago. Gonna give it another 7min. But what do I do after that time? Remove the SD card?
Also, where can I download the MHX cia while I wait. I want whatever one gives online & works with the English patch
GBAtemp is so funny
You can delete .cias once they're installed.
If you follow that guide you can get onto the eShop to download game updates. Triforce Heroes requires an update to get online, so you'd need to do that first.
Alright, so when I tried to update via the system updater on my emunand, it completely broke my rxtools installation and I can no longer boot into it. I'm on the n3DS. How do I fix it? I made a backup of the original systemnand before I completed the emunand process and I backed up the whole sd card then too.
So we'll be able to install legit cia on 9.3+ without the pain in the ass it is to get the current modded FBI to run by waiting for the official release, while still being brickproof?
Hey so the charging light doesn't actually need to be on for the 3DS to be charging right?
Its at full power so the light doesn't stay on.
Sorry for the retarded question, I just want to be sure I'm charging while my downgrade attempts are going through.
That's what I thought. Is it safe to update my sysnand to 9.0/9.2? Like it won't affect my emunand partition will it?
I guess setting up mset would be easiest and safest though, thank you.

What does it mean?
did you initialize save data?
otherwise its ridiculously finicky
I'd appreciate some help if anyone has info >>127572738
So, I need to unlink nands and I'm wondering which one should I format, in sysnand I have some digital games and my savedata; emunand is nearly empty since I haven't installed anything yet.
Can I use my nintendo ID in both emunand and sysnand? Or do I have to use it in only one of them? If that isn't possible then should I link my nintendo ID to emunand?
16GB in my 3DS XL, 2GB in my O3DS which is what I'm using for muh piracy.
Both were free but I'm gonna have to get a much, much bigger SD card for my O3DS. It was previously collecting dust and used for occasional browser exploit shit so I didn't really think I'd need something bigger than 2GB.
9.2 N3DS here. What is the likelihood that I'll be able to play online using my real cartridge games ever again? If we ever get a way to update emunand on N3DS to the latest firmware could you go online with no hiccups?
It's nice that I got all this shit working but I'm going to miss some online features. Mario Golf World Tour online is pretty fun, not to mention MH4, Mario Kart 7, and Smash.
DevMenu is Nintendo's official installer.
BBM modified DevMenu to allow folders but disabled overwriting titles.
FBI is kickass homebrew made from scratch that lets you overwrite and choose the install destination manually.
yes, that's what i've gleaned from a conversation with the guy who put out the modded fbi (shiny_banana), he says steveice is working on porting the functionality to citrus by way of libkhax, and official fbi uses citrus
so i'll be able to play fe:a and some other shit while i'm waiting for stable downgrades or 10.3 kernel/ntrcardhax
>not making a backup
I'm not retarded anon-kun. Restored my emunand with no issue. It was just annoying having to restore it.
New 3DS. For o3DS you can just update emuNAND right from system settings. Mine's running 10.3 already.
I'm wondering this also, and I'm still at the downgrading step. I don't want to go through it all and not be able to play MH, Pokemon, and the upcoming FF Explorers with my friends.
Ive got menuhax installed on sysnand, do I need to reinstall it for emunand as well?
Is it safe to use themes in emunand? Its already unlinked and I only jave MX installed to sysnand
There's no problem
You don't NEED to unlink unless you want autoboot
Don't forget that if you format the nand you installed the game to in order to unlink then you will have to reinstall the game
thanks guys it seems to have worked, animal crossing HDD is installing
All after resetting the sd card completely, deleting all partitions and formatting back to fat32 is "Cannot display the software on the microSD card. The microSD card could not be accessed"
The fuck do I do now?
I just formatted my SD and was ready to start using the rxtools, but now I don't know what to do exactly, the guide says that I need what is in the release folder, but there's no release folder.
9.2 o3DSXL, successful downgade/entrypoint setup
but the issue i am having is when i try to launch rxTools, the rxtools logo shows up as per usual, but then my 3DS restarts into ctrbootmanager.
when i select rxtools again it gives me an angry red bottom screen
how do i fix anons
i just want muh pokemon
Don't worry, I read all the warnings posted everywhere. I don't wanna brick my shit. I'm going to try setting up mset for now though.
However, when I run msetdg.bat, it asks me for my region and I select the correct one, but it says:
>Downloading MSET 4.x from the CDN...
>HTTP Error: 404 (big nintendowifi.com link)
then automatically closes. What do I do? It says "Select MSET -> your region -> 6.X if you have a 2DS, or either one if you have a 3DS." but I'm assuming that 6.X is something unrelated to region. Do I download from the  TWN region anyway? Is that what it means? There's no .X anywhere though so I'm guessing that isn't it.
You can't access it because you aren't on the latest firmware (10.3). N3DS can't update emunand past 9.5 until the wizards figure out a way to do so. Only O3DS can go up to 10.3.
You need to find updates online in cia files and install them.
The order you do it doesn't matter
There's a meme that got spread by GW stuff that says updating emunand while your nands are unlinked is safer, but there's no reason to think so aside from being scared of the word "linked"
Yep, root is fine
>Also I hear FBI sucks
FBI is the best option right now.
IS IT 100% NECCESARY FOR ME TO FORMAT MY SD CARD TO INSTALL CFW AND DO EMUNAND SHIT
can someone help a poorfag out this has been killing me for the past 2 days
I have an 2DS which I did some things with a while ago so I have some oldass version of RxTools on it, with a buttload of installed .cia's. My RxTools can't even play gba or dsi games yet, I haven't bothered to update it.
I think my sysnand is on 9.2 or something and my emunand is a bit higher as that.
I launch into RxTools everytime by going to the browser and visiting some site which crashes my shit and boots up RxTools, and from there I can get into emunand. (no idea which *hax that is called)
Is it time sensitive for me to install that menuhax thing? Because that menuhax seems useful, I don't like needing internet to boot into emunand.
To add to this, is it easy to update to a new version of RxTools with all the bells and whistles? All the emunand shit and FBI installer shit is already done.
Launch the config app using homebrew launcher, one of the options there (third I think) configures what to press for it to activate. Select type 1, then tap the lower screen without pressing anything.
Did you run FMP first and press START?
Also check your Emunand System Settings and make sure the last number in your Firmware version is 28.
If it isn't then you need to install the NVER to NAND again.
N3DS, using Julian20's sysupdater, I've been following all the steps in the pastebin, but using the sysupdater itself, all I get is a black screen. I'm able to abort it using L+R+Down+B, so I'm not fully bricked but I'm wondering if I missed a step or if I should do something else or if I'm just being an impatient bastard. How long does it usually take for text to show up?
Why would changing my theme make FBI appear?
Also when I boot into sysnand (no cfw enabled) the icon pops up for a second then vanishes...
Anyway i'll try changing the menu.
Would installing to nand work? When fbi gives you this option does it install to emuNAND or sysNAND?
I have no idea about MSET, maybe someone else can help you with that. I just know it exists.
If they are RF, no it doesnt matter.
Bottom on how to switch sd cards.
If you didnt even have rxtools setup, just begin anew with the new sd card.
you need to format emunand, YES
