Could anyone give me a hand with DLC here?
I'm running Cakes+NTR on 10.3. I can install games and updates without any issues through FBI, but I'm having trouble with Fire Emblem: Awakening's DLC
I already tried installing both through FBI and BIgBlueBox, but when I try to check for DLC, it says it can't detect my SD card. I already checked the region and both are US, the game and the DLC pack
Did anyone run into this?
A friend told me how to install it, I don't know which guide he used
>install SMTIV last night
>boot up 3DS today just to make sure things are still working
>rxtools doesn't even reach splash
>open up notifications to see if I can make it stop bugging me
>return and SMTIV is fucking gone
I have unlinked nands btw
I'm done with https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
Should I get Bigbluemenu now? Heard people talk about it.
Do I install it via FBI and then use BBM in the future to install game .cias?
Can I freely use a custom theme on emunand? I only have to keep sysnand on default, right?
if you're on o3ds you probably won't softbrick unless you're a retard
there seems to be a bit of a chance of softbrick on n3ds even if you are capable of thinking
is your emunand updated?
look at the first pastebin linked under 3ds, it contains a link to a "downgrading" pastebin and a "downgrading for retards" pastebin
try the second one
>is your emunand updated?
I don't know, I got it off this thread:
How do I check? What version should it be?
Ca someone explain to me what the emuNAND and sys/user/etcNAND mean, do, or just what their purpose is? Something like a dummies guide to 3DS NANDs, please.
In PSP I didn't have to deal with any of this shit, I just installed it and didn't give no shits.
Will these XNANDs create any conflicts with my nintendoID, saved games, playcoin games, etc.?
6 more days until 10.4 maymay begins
Get your smug anime reaction images ready, folks!
Does installing rxtools or emunand have a risk of bricking my console?
Anons, I'm using this guide here:
When I got to the part where I install emunand9 and let it sit while it creates the nand backup, it mentions that I should unmount the SD card and backup everything in it because afterwards I'm going to wipe the card.
Do I have to unmount even though I can transfer files through the N3DS's options?
if you're getting a lot of softbricks, make sure that you're using the right firmware (region and n3ds/o3ds)
unlink your sysnand and emunand and then update your emunand to 10.3
So I just keep trying again and again until it works?
EmuNAND and SysNAND unlinked
Followed this guide
I cannot fucking play GBA. What am I doing wrong.
Yes, that's certainly possible. However, I don't see it happening anytime soon because DS virtual console seems restricted to DS. I don't think they have faith in the 3DS running them well. Either that or exclusivity reasons.
nand is just a type of memory. the 3ds has a nand, so does a wii, a ps3, a dsi or whatever. the firmware is in there.
Sysnand is the real one inside the system. Your system boots and it looks at sysnand. If that breaks, your system is a brick. It needs to be on an exploitable firmware to run CFW.
Emunand is a copy on the SD card. CFWs typically run on here because you can update it, install anything, and even if it bricks you can just make a new one no problem.
>Need to upgrade to 9.2, following the instructions on https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/

What am I meant to do?
>1. thats it
>2. n3ds or o3ds? more information
1. Any pros and cons for the respective versions? or for using another CIA installer?
2 ods, I startup rxmode emunand go to system settings, confirm I'm on RX3D 9.2.0-20U, Other settings, system update, confirm I want to update, Accept the terms and conditions, Connecting to the internet please wait, Updating system flashes for a second or two, then I get "An error has occurred. Unable to update. The system will now be restarted"
How would you go about unlinking them? Is there a tutorial for unlinking the nands?
Also, would the Emunand being 10.3 stop games from being installed/ran? I'm not exactly sure how the emunand thing works.
not every cia spoofs firmware, and some people want to play carts or legally purchased downloads
the downgrade guide is a general downgrade guide, quit being an idiot and actually read the things before you post
you just need to grab n3ds firmware from the mega file
I'm the same anon from earlier who was having issues downloading one of the files necessary for MSET. When I run msetdg.bat and enter my region, it says that the page it tries to download MSET 4.X has 404'd and automatically closes.
Can we still update our emunand in the future? I dont know. Maybe yes, maybe no. I think its reasonable to be always to the highest you can be.
Try 3.0 if you are on 9.0/9.2. 3.0 Sometimes doesnt work on lower fw.
Just install a CIA on sysnand of an old MSET. 3dsiso should have one.
System settings application. There's a bug in the old versions that can be exploited for offline CFW booting.
If I install browserhax/menuhax and downgrade, do I lose my friendlist and Nintendo Network ID?
Do not update. Just format in the System Settings menu with the SD Card out. Make sure you've booted into SysNAND. Do that by starting the 3DS without the SDCard.
1) Boot without SD Card
2) System Settings > Other Settings > Format
3) Make sure your SD Card is out
5) Turn off 3DS, Reinsert SD Card, reboot
6) Reinstall *hax of choice
7) Go to HBL and boot into emuNAND using your CFW of choice
Downgraded my O3DS to 9.2. Do I have to use browserhax and re-install menuhax again? Do I have to manipulate any files if I used the smealum starter file to downgrade in the first place?
Just tell me what I'm doing wrong then.
tried both julian20 and TuxSH, both successfully installed and restarted in 10sec
9.2.0-20U(Full).zip (from MEGA)
first tried on 9.9.0-26U but updated to 10.3.0-28U after softbrick, same shit happens
>take out SD
Already tried that
Any suggestions big boy?
Ok so I'm a retard when it comes to this.
I want to Autoboot into my CakesCFW Emunand.
I have Menuhax 2.1 already installed.
I want it so that If I don't press anything it boots into Emunand and if I hold L It boots into Sysnand.
From Last Thread:
I'm getting desperate here... this is what I'v done:
Have n3ds 10.3 and succesfully downgrade
get emunand and rxtools and basically follow the tutorial in the OP
Power on 3ds.
menuhax autoboots (I see my custom png) to bootmanager
bootmanager boots rxtools after 3 seconds
I'm in emunand now (I see my transfered stuff like ironfall)
Up to this point everything works like it should. Except the fact that I have this ugly white theme. So I get into homebrew via browser and set 3 shuffle themes with CHMM2.
If I shutdown and power on my 3ds it directly boots into sysnand and not menuhax anymore... and I have to setup menuhax again and everything repeats
Till now anon recommended me to either stop using shuffling themeset or applying a custom theme to my emunand menuhax
I dunno if I fucked up, but this seemed to work before I made an emunand backup. I used Emunand Tool for this and waited till it got 100%. And since nothing happend for 2 mins I just closed it. Was this a bad idea? I do have a Emunand.bin on my desktop
Are my Nands still unlinked?
NEVERMIND I AM A STUPID FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While typing this bullshit post I updated my emunand to 9.5
And now if I power on my 3ds it boots menuhax to boot manager to rxtools to emunand (with shuffling themes). Everything workes as it should
And now to setting up my NVer wish me luck senpaitachi. And to everyone out there struggling: keep calm, think and follow those tuts
Quick question. .cia files, they can spoof firmware, right? Cause I know there's more than a few games that "require" an update to the firmware in order to start up. I don't ever have to worry about this, right?
Has anyone got the HomeBrew Launcher Loader .cia working with the emunand cold boot method that's been posted here?
Everytime I try to load the Homebrew Launcher from emunand it just goes back to the ctrBootManager
Okay I downgraded
Now ironhax/menuhax dont work
How the fuck do I get to the homebrew
Anyone on here who's successfully got pirated games running on an n3ds?
Please link the exact guide you used and note if there was anything screwy with it.
I'm already on 9.2, just picked up a 64gb SD so I'm ready 2 go. I don't have cubic ninja or OoT but I do have a DS flashcart that boots and plays games on 3ds.
They can be fw spoofed. If they are fw spoofed and your emunand is equal or lower you dont have to care.
Use this guide and the rxtools from this thread instead.
use this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
>They can be fw spoofed. If they are fw spoofed and your emunand is equal or lower you dont have to care.
Cool. Thank you very much. I was worried about MonHun X forcing me to update if I injected the .cia
>tfw my cias aren't installing
am I not supposed to have it on the root?
it's just Triple Deluxe
i installed rxTools successfully, and went to boot it in emunand like the tutorial says, but it kicked me off
now whenever i try launching the rxTools site my 3ds does the bottom screen glitchout and freezes there. any help? i installed fbi over health and safety btw
GUYS, IS IT TRUE, IS THIS A BRICK FREE BUILD OF THE DOWNGRADER?
SHOULD I SWITCH TO THIS FROM JULIAN!?
Nigga what the actual fuck are you doing?
RXTools on N3DS has missing features.
Go with Cakes or Pasta for N3DS
Missing features on n3ds:
-AGB and TWL patches
I think https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/ is a better guide
Worked flawlessly for me at least
The emunand is literally a seperate NAND for your console running off of the SD Card. It is operating as the main memory for your console instead of the regular NAND flash on the 3DS.
This way you can keep your 9.2 sysNAND to keep the exploits running and operate everything out of the CFW.
Think of it as running a VMWare OS on your computer, in a manner of speaking. Your OS is self contained in the "HardDisk" created for it on your main computer. It operates within it's own environment ontop of the main OS (in this case the SysNAND). Everything you do in the VMWare OS (the emuNAND) will only affect that OS, and it won't affect the one running natively on your computer.
That is the benefit of unlinking.
It shouldnt matter where your cia files are. Try another one or try fbi/bbm (that was you havent used before)
Old 3ds seems pretty safe, new 3ds wouldnt count on bricksafe.
>Nigga what the actual fuck are you doing?
I dont own a new 3ds, I recommend what works for people and rxtools does that. Most of the people are are full on noobs.
(also I dont own a n3ds so my knowledge is limited)
Try to install them with fbi.
You download them games and install them via fbi/bbm
is there a better guide to installing BBM? The one in OP says to put the .3ds in the Gateway's own SD card.
Where should the .3ds go instead? Can it just go in the root with the .cia?
This anon again, I've done everything I could think of and I'm fucking desperate. Deleted files, reinstalled stuff, formatted SD Card. I either get a black screen or a black screen with dots on the left side of the screen.
WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO?
Ah screw it. I'll wait until the weekend to try again. Getting tired playing reset roulette and hopefully there will be a more stable version of sysupdater. Good luck to the rest of you.
>Move update folder onto root of sd card
>Only way to delete is to format the whole SD card and now I have to do literally fucking everything including getting homebrew in the first place again
You should install FBI to install the BBM if you dont have a gateway card.
old 3ds: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/
new 3ds: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
I am having a very specific problem that no one on google seems to have a solution to.
Browserhax is hanging on a red and black screen as it boots on a certain 3DS, but working on other 3DS's.
I found a file to make it run:
Once browserhax starts, the apps won't work because this file was designed for ninjahax. Does anyone know if there is another boot file around already made for browserhax to fix this issue? Is there anyone I can ask to create this file?
Could not install app.
Raw Error. 0xc8a0802b
Module: AM (0x20)
Level: Status (0x19)
Summary: Invalid stare (0x5)
Description: Database does not exist (0x2b)
Press Start to continue.
What am I doing wrong in FBI? All my CIAs have this.
Im now getting the
Failed to get CIA file info!
Did I fuck up where Im suposed to put the update .cia. Also can i just exit out into the hbl and re try without reboot the 3ds?
You're not doing anything wrong. It's a complete gamble as to whether the downgrader works. For some people it works on their first try, for others it takes like 400+ attempts. Keep trying and hope the RNG Gods are on your side.
So I downgraded and opened homebrew launcher through browserhax. What's a second method I can use since menuhax doesn't work in this version?
>Use this guide and the rxtools from this thread instead
So I downloaded that and I was thinking it'd be best to update my rxTools to the one linked in that thread to make sure everything worked together properly, but I noticed the files are different so I wouldn't be replacing anything. Do you think it'd be safe to just rip the rxinstaller.bin out of that and use it in 2.5.2, even though the versions won't match up?
No that doesnt work. rxTools 2.5.2 uses the firmware.bin and has the launcer in rxtools.dat. The newer versions use sometimes a folder architecture for the firmware.bin and the rxtools.bin has been changed to code.bin.
I think there needs to be a pastebin of google-fu to fix half of this shit. It's semi-spoonfeeding since they still need to off their ass read.
>"fbi database does not exist"
>"rxtools native_firm 4"
>"3ds cia converter"
Okay, I got pretty much everything done without much trouble. Two small spoonfeeding requests, though:
1) Are save managers good enough to move a save from my old sysnand to the new emunand? If so, what's the one of choice?
2) Is there a way to disable the region checking on the home menu? It'd be nice to still use my JP import carts if I can.
If not, they're small games anyway and I don't mind going the CIA route for them.
Can you link to a copy of the versions of PastaCFW and dbs.zip I need? I got all the github stuff just fine, but those two I keep getting redirected through free_download.mp3.exe hell.
Working mega links would be awesome. PLEASE SPOON FEED ME
Shit man, of course.
Thanks a bunch, it's installing them now.
downgraded my 10.3, USA New 3DS about an 30 minutes ago. I can't boot any of my digital games up and I'm worry about my saves. I haven't install any CFW yet, so what do. I'm new to this shit.
In the Ironhax installer, it won't let me select anything above 9-9-0 USA for my O3DS firmware. I used the auto version. Should I redo the menuhax install with the 10.3 link?
If you want to keep your digital shit you'll need to set up emunand then format sysnand (yes, sys) to keep the stuff attached to emunand after unlinking.
Did you try removing the SD card before turning the system on? Or are you just calling it a softbrick?
You can't boot any of your eShop games because they require a newer firmware. You probably have a bunch of games that came out after or have been patched to not support 9.2 any longer.
You're fine. As soon as you're into CFW, everything will be fine, play fine, and your saves are safe.
Is it still possible to block Update Notifications via Tubehax DNS?
What happens If I get a notification on my n3ds 9.5 emunand? Can I still remove it via Going into recovery mode and leave?
What happens If I try to install 10.3 on my n3ds emunand? Emunand brick?
Hi anons, guess what, mods on /v/ are retarded, so I hope you can help me out. It isn’t about the 3ds, it is about the Wii. Let me repost for you:
>Hey Anons, It is not about the 3ds, but I have a question. My Sister have a Nintendo Wii. She updated It. Then she regretted and sent to some hack (and paid 30 bucks) to jailbreak / install homebrew, all without consulting me.
>He was a hack and did some abomination on the Wii. Now It has like 3 different jailbreaks installed, some doesn’t wont, some do, it is all a mess and I have no idea what is what. It need a secondary reader connected on the USB port to read burned isos.
>Where do I even begin to fix this shit?
Pic related is how my Wii main menu looks like. It has Homebrew, WiiFlow, uLoader amd NeoGamma. The only way I got to play was with uLoader + secondary DVD reader connected on the USB
Someone on the /v/ thread told me to run this application over here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/SysCheck_GX
I put it into a SDcard, and the Homebrew managed to read the program without problems (so it isn’t that fucked up). Here is the result log: http://pastebin.com/Cw0GWTXe
I don’t know much about jailbreakers / homebrew variants, all I want is to get rid of the 4 semi-working ones, choose one to make it work properly and stick with it and learn how to use it.
Both NANDS will be exactly the same until you format one.
Assuming you do it correctly (ie use tiny format), you will lose EVERYTHING (games, saves, NNID, friend list) on the formatted NAND and keep EVERYTHING on the other NAND.
yeah you can have multiple emunands. it's also possible to transfer your emunand onto a different SD card but it's a pain in the ass
If you just want to do emunand-related stuff Emunand9Tool (available as .3dsx for Homebrew Launcher) will suffice.
No need to deal with Brickway and technically better.
You're both retarded, hacking a Wii is easy and there are several guides if you got the time (and even then it's just moving and reading). Just get USB Loader GX and/or Nintendont based on what you plan to be using.
WiiFlow, uLoader, and NeoGamma are also ass in favor of USB Loader GX.
posted this in the wrong thread.
So uhh, how do I take screenshots of games running in CFW?
I'm using a N3DS with cakes. I tried to run the game through hans but it just locks up, so that won't work. Can't access miiverse for obvious reasons.
Finally after 16 tries I succesfully downgraded my n3ds u 9.9 to 9.2.0. Now can some one help me back up my nand?
BLACK SCREEN AFTER BLACK SCREEN CAKES ACTUALLY DECIDED TO LOAD AND BBM SHOWS UP AS A GIFT BOX INSTEAD OF BLANK APP THAT VANISHES AFTER 3 SECONDS
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
>talking to a friend of mine
>he's a fucking idiot
>asks me why he can't get Pasta working from Homebrew Launcher
>ask him if he downgraded to 9.2.0-20U
Holy shit it's like trying to teach a dumb dog.
is rxTools supposed to boot back to home menu after i select 'boot rxtools in emunand'?
Alright I think I've installed everything correctly.
What can I do now?
Do I link my NNID to my emunand or sysnand?
Is it possible to grab my legit games from the e-shop and how do I go about transferring the save data that I had from before I hacked it?
And do I install CIAs to the emunand or the sysnand?
And is there a better CIA installer than FBI?
>Finally take the plunge.
>The latest sysupdater not only works on the first try, but has the courtesy to auto-update me to the home menu without having to touch shit.
>9.2.20U - N3DSXL.
...Now what? I've gone from reluctant fear to being totally fucking awake. I'm ready to get this shit poppin'.
I'm using a 64GB MicroSD that the N3DSXL sees, and all these guides mention MULTIPLE SD CARDS. I'm lost!
Well, I tried installing the one listed in that thread and it didn't work. I have no idea why versions other than 2.5.2 won't work, it's really strange.
Should I try the non-matching rxinstaller.bin anyway? Is there any risk of me bricking my system that way?
That's what I get. It doesn't read the tmd and doesn't install the fbi.
If you find a way to fix it do tell.
Right now I'm midway through reupdating and redowngrading to see if that fixes it.
I followed https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/page-29
How do I install a custom theme through homebrew? Main reason I ask is, I have to first launch into rx emunand and THEN go into homebrew via browserhax, right?
If go into homebrew right at coldboot I would be in the sysnand's homebrew and then changing the theme would fuck up everything correct?
I'm getting insanely tired doing this >>127593956
is formatting my sd an option? How would I go about doing that exactly?
I sent him all the links and apparently he fucked up somewhere after getting his NAND that he had to restart.
I will never understand how people fuck up basic instructions.
After you install a cia through fbi, does the game read from the cia file, or does it copy data into the Nintendo 3DS folder and read from there as if it was a real game? If it's the second, wouldn't that mean you can delete the cia from the sd card to free up space?
What's the decryption key for rxtools? I can't seem to download this shit
If you're true to your word, thanks in advance.
If not, enjoy regardless.

>The latest sysupdater not only works on the first try, but has the courtesy to auto-update me to the home menu without having to touch shit.
Are you following this guide?
Someone help, I've done everything, formatted my SD and done everything again, but no dice. I get a 0xD8E08067 (failed to get CIA file info) result code using both the safe and unsafe SysUpdater, and everything is in the right spots.
So I'm having a bit of an issue. https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-fix-emunand-error-022-2634-after-sysnand-unlink.405005/
After I followed this to fix me not being able to log into Eshop. My games aren't visible. My NNID and my friend code is all the same, I can log in just fine and I also copypasted my SD stuff from backup, but they just won't appear.
go to system update, turn it off in the middle of the update, reboot, and go into the browser and type in
from there you will be able to make a nand on the newest FW in one go while also creating an emunand
Can someone help me out?
It's from the 9.2.0-E20 (Full n3ds) folder and yes I did extract it before moving
And the webpage to launch rxtools has changed, take this into consideration!
Anna is cute! CUTE!
You can update your fw to 9.0/9.2 with 2.5.2 as linked in the thread. After that 3.0 should wourk, I had to the same thing because 3.0 didnt launch. But be careful!
you have to format your emunand to erase stuff
once you instal it its stuck forever
also, does anyone know how to get ntr cfw running in rxtools? do i just install it through bigbluemenu or what?
Guys I can't install FBI into my sysnand because the health and safety app went missing. I can boot into both sysnand and emunand I guess, but I want the FBI on sysnand too.
Is there a way to recover the health app or could you guys tell me another way to get FBI working on sysnand so I can install my GBA games there too?
emuNand works fine with everything except gba.
Doesn't mean anything is wrong with using the emulators though.
I prefer the advantages they provide like save states, turbo (speed and autofire), custom sizing, etc.
However I'm not dying to play games on my 3DS so if they won't run at fullspeed I just won't play them (on it).
>tried to downgrade
>got the "An error has occurred" page thing
>console won't do anything past the power light turning on
>refuses to boot into the restore mode thing through A L R UP
Am I fucked?
So..guys,CakesFW or RXTools?
Are there any advantages or something?
I did redownload twice. Are there any other sources apart from the mega link to get these files because maybe this specific one doesn't work
Either that or my SD card decides to shit on me the day I use it
I only have until Monday to do this, guys... I can't wait like I usually do...
I keep on getting this error when trying to downgrade. Can anyone help?

32gb is good but I replaced it with 64 gb. Go figure
IF I HAVE TO FILL ONE MORE OF THOSE STREETNAME SHITS IAM GONNA KILL YOU ALL
So, I finally got myself a newly downgraded 9.2.20 N3DS.
What's the main differences between Cakes, NTR, and the Pasta firmwares? Wich one is the best? (currently)
On version 6 on a 3DS that's right out of the box. What is the point of going up to 10 then back down to 9? Can't you just take nand up to 9? Why go through all that extra work?
I MADE IT
BUT SINCE I HAVE A FUCKING N3DS, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT.
All the guides are for
and that's not n3DS viable, apparently. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN
Gotta love how the mods are pruning threads on /v/
Potentially but maybe not.
>Turn your 3DS off
>Boot back on

I'm on N3DSXL.
Can I stay on RX 9.2 or should I upgrade to 9.5?
I don't care about badges or about eshop, I just want to pirate games as .cias and same with patches. Like MHX, Mystery Dungeon, Etrian, maybe Yo-Kai Watch.
i somehow managed to open fbi once, then i reset my 3ds and don't know how i got there in the first place. all i did was open health and safety and fbi started, now when i open health and safety it's just the actual app. PLEASE HELP
Jesus Christ have some self respect and clean your shit.
Bumping because I have the same issue after trying to format the emunand so Nintendo Network worked again
Look up at what fw those games are spoofed. If they require >9.2 update emunand, else dont bother.
If you want a truly region free 3ds you want one on 9.2/9.0
Install anew https://smealum.github.io/

>Do the whole thing multiple times
>Finally it just works
>Coldboot into emunand 10.X, if I press L it boots into sysnand 9.2
>realise there's only one "random numbers folder" in the Nintendo 3DS folder
This means the nands are linked, right? What should I do?
I upgraded from 9.9 to 10.3 so I could downgrade to 9.2, so I'm on 10.3. Next, I'm trying to install Ironhax so I can downgrade. Are you saying I can do this with just Menuhax? Why does the guide on gbatemp want me to install both menuhax and ironhax?
Nope, didn't work. I created the firm folder, placed it both E:\rxTools\firm and E:\rxTools\rxTools\sys, and only got errors when trying to load https://dukesrg.github.io/?rxTools/sys/code.bin. I had the same issue with 2.6, looks like 2.5.2 is the only one that wants to work for me currently.
>You can update your fw to 9.0/9.2 with 2.5.2 as linked in the thread. After that 3.0 should wourk, I had to the same thing because 3.0 didnt launch. But be careful!
I can? Since if you look at >>127594064 you can see I don't have a DEVMODE or PASTA MODE which is needed for upgrading to 9.2.
>Want to reinstall your menuhax payload but keep your old stuff?
>Don't care about/have old stuff and/or don't want to go through the pain of reinstalling Menuhax?
Playing Stella Glow on my old 3DSXL. svdt wouldn't let me dump my save file and I gave up trying anything else, so my original 3DSXL will be my backup for playing any actual carts that have save data already on them and my N3DSXL will be for .cia
>yfw you read the instructions carefully and got everything to work on your first attempt and had literally zero trouble
Okay, so I have FBI in my homescreen now.
Can I start installing games?
Do I have to be on emuNAND homescreen to do so?
When I'm done installing a .cia can I delete it from my SD like Wii wads?
I haven't bothered to re-set up my NNID, so I'm not sure if they're still downloadable. Even though, you wouldn't need to worry about that as you could just download the cia's and use those.
its fairly easy senpai... follow this tut: https://gbatemp.net/threads/menuhax-2-0-custom-main-screen-images.401528/
It also has a few nice images
Basically its like this:
put it inside the menuhax folder inside your 3ds
start menuhax and go to set up image option
set it up
I TRIED BOTH SYSUPDATERS, AND MY UPDATE FILES HAVE THE RIGHT HASHES.
Holy shit it worked
i survived the reset roulette
You can use FBI to install cias
You need to be in Emunand
you can remove them from your sd. keep em somewhere save on your pc incase you need them in the future
check the OP. It should have a mega link with games. It was also posted a couple times in the last threads. so you might it find there too.
If you have cfw you can start out of region games. so yes
Please respond. I really don't want to lose my pokemon picross progress.
But that is rxtools 2.6 not 2.5.2. I personally used 2.5.2. to update to 9.2.
Usually its written at what fw they are spoofed but I cant really help you with that if what oyu say is true. So i guess you have to update.
Yes you can only update games through the eshop with the original region as your own 3ds.
If you dont think thats easy, you might have braindamage.
The old one did, new one: probably no. But you have menuhax/themehax on 9.0/9.2 to make up for it.
WHAT IS ALL THIS SHIT GOING AROUND ABOUT A NEW SYSUPDATE THAT IS MORE STABLE AND DOESN'T BRICK.
IS IT A STEVE BUILD OR A JULIAN BUILD!?
DO I HAVE TO STAY TRAPPED IN FAILED TO GET FILE INFO HELL!?
Getting this too with my n3ds. Checked md5 and sha-1 hashes on the zip and they check out. Managed to downgrade an o3ds just fine. Using julian20's new sysUpdater. Either crashes with black screen on startup or fails to get cia info.
>be me with New 3DSXL
c-can I safely downgrade from this firmware anons?
d-do I really need Cubic Ninja, its not available anywhere...
I just want to play games for free and get japanese games on my N3DS since I became poorfag a while ago
>mfw I read the instructions carefully and got everything to work on your first attempt right up until it hardbricked
EVERYTHING WAS CORRECT
THIS ALWAYS HAPPENS TO ME
IF SOMETHING CAN GO WRONG IT WILL
I keep getting stuck on step #5 on o3ds. I didn't have this issue when I downgraded mine,and I'm not quite sure what to do. It gets stuck with ocarinahax and ironhax. Browserhax doesn't work at all
>using a premade theme makes me unables me to use menuhax by triggering a buttom
I WANT MY TENGENN TOPPA THEME FUCK
So I'm trying to get rxtools, however when I load the web browser, it just crashes and takes me back to the home menu.
I put the firmware.bin, slot0x25key.bin, rxtools.dat fbi_inject.tmd, and the fbi_inject.app all in the root of my sd card.
In the release/fbi_injection/usa was I supposed to chose v0, v1026 or v2051?
I'm literally retarded and had no idea what I was doing most of the time, and everything worked out perfectly.
Just read properly and don't do anything without checking the step again.
Got the orig. 3DS in black and it's on ver. 6 with a browser.
What's the point of going up to 10 3, then down to 9 2? Can't you just stay on 6 then nand up to 10 3?
What are the most up to date instructions on how to do this on a ver 6 3DS with a browser? Do you need to open it up or anything?
is there a guide on how to update emunand from 9.2 to 9.5 on a n3dsxl?
And it has to be foolproof
If I damage something now after hours of work I will cry
Headphone anon from the previous thread here, I'm curious to see if plugging headphones into the headphone jack actually does anything, so try it out and see if it works.
I THINK it worked for me. (Or I'm just a fucking retard who can't tell the difference between causation and something coincidental.)
Good luck, SienfeldBro.
So I used this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/ to install rxTools.
Problem is, after installing, I went into the System Settings and it doesn't say RX before the version number. What do I do?
Does anyone at all know where to find a super smash bros. for 3ds that is cryptofixed/FW spoofed? Im on 9.1 with a N3DS so even on 9.5 I wouldnt be able to play this without spoofing it. I cant find it anywhere which I think is really strange.
>do everything correctly
>says it's installing
>look away for a second
>look back and there's an error page
>remember that people said to turn the 3DS off, remove the SD card, and turn it back on
>blue light comes on
>screens don't turn on
>try to put it into restore mode
>won't go into restore mode
Can someone tell me if getting the x in the place pointed instead of where it appears in this screenshot should be cause for worry?
>julian sys will not recognize my cias
>tush sys bricks my n3ds
>steve sys craps itself on step 4
life is suffering
>backup all files on your sd card
>copy them back to sd card
New 3DS is not 100% safe. Even if you do everything right you might get a brick.
Mine is almost 1gb
delete cookies and browser history.
When you try to install fbi without anything it will tell you which tmd to use.
What games does everyone have? Downloading DQ7 and SK2 now.
If you stay on 6 and just do nand, it's done.
If you have 6, then you go up to 10 3, then down to 9 2, how is that easier with all the extra work?
Going to try it later but it seems to make no sense.
There was a quick and dirty guide to installing rxTools after emunand and setting up autoboot
Can someone post it please?
>But that is rxtools 2.6 not 2.5.2. I personally used 2.5.2. to update to 9.2.
Oh shit, you're right. What the hell? I thought I installed 2.5.2. Well, never mind I suppose. Just as long as it works.
I'm supposed to have a ADVANCED OPTIONS/DEVMODE or PASTA MODE then right?
>If you dont think thats easy, you might have braindamage.
That looks very simple, but I somehow can't get it to work? When I click on "'Create ncchinfo.bin file" it just gives me an error with nothing written on it and crashes.
So to install MHX V8 with Update all I have to do is put both the files in the root of my SD? Then I just boot up Bluemenu, install MHX, and then install the update?
Also should I update my EmuNAND to 10.3 before installing it? I know its required, but I'm wondering if you can do it afterwards.
So I got rxTools working, where do I go from here in my piracy adventure?
Taiko 2 (Still can't get the fucking DLC to activate...)
Ace Attorney Dual Destinies
Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance
Senran Kagura 2 downloadan right now
and maybe some more stuff later, having a data cap is fucking suffering
I'm on 9.9.0-26U on a NEW3DS, I want to safely upgrade but I'm a little lost on where to start. but I just want to clarify something, my internet browser still doesn't open at all even if I use the 107.211.140.065 DNS. Does this mean I'm fucked and should just upgrade to 10.3 while I still can and start all over again ? Oh and how do I make backup files in case my system gets bricked ?
i just make it work minutes ago. you probably not going to like this but what i did and works was format the shit out of everything. after that it works at the first try. keep it in mind but use it as last resource
HOW DO I FIRMWARE.BIN
THIS CONFUSES ME
There wasn't much I could do wrong, I followed the pastebin word for word, triple-checked that everything I downloaded was correct and then in the right place on the SD, browserhax, install menuhax, menuhax into downgrade, everything went fine and said it was fine for about 3 minutes, then I looked away and looked back to see the error screen.
I only just got Animal Crossing and Etrian Odyssey 4 too...
If of all if you didn't know what to do, you should have taken a picture and asked.
Next you should have double, triple checked you downloaded the correct firmware.
Last you should have used Julian's build because it installs each cia at a time so if a hang up occurs at most, you'll softbrick and simply need to update
And if you can access the home menu in any way, you didn't hardbrick
