-NOTICE: January 11th http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/01/extended_nintendo_network_maintenance_on_the_way
-Menu/Iron/Browserhax all work on the latest firmware again! DON'T DELAY in getting Homebrew.
-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?
Things are going pretty well. Some bricks are simply people using the wrong firmware. Be sure you understand the risks.
-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.
-Blank screen can be caused by Menuhax. Try pulling your SD card if you get it. Boot, reinsert, change theme.
-Apparently, the Wii U and 3DS use the same fucking keys... LOL
-Hykem is being weird.
-Linux running on PS4
-Cobra Black Fin was announced. http://wololo.net/2015/12/07/cobra-black-fin-an-upcoming-dongle-to-play-ps-vita-isos/
-A Vita update got released, you might not want to update since it fixes the email exploit.
Is there anything I can do in regards to getting System Update in the recovery menu to work more reliably? I've been trying to update from a soft-brick more times than I've actually run the sysUpdater.
Okay I downgraded tro 9.2
so basically Get to the gateway page through my 3ds, do a backup of my n3ds folder and let gateway format my sd and create emunad then follow this guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYrFRYAtFHc
Then I can enjoy my free vidoegames
One made of foam.
It's when something goes wrong, but the console isn't completely locking you out with a black screen. You can still recover it, with something like Recovery Menu
What are some sites besides 3dsiso for .cia files?
Also, I highly recommend this guide for N3DS users.
Reposting for the new thread:
So, I did some tutorials yesterday and everything worked out really smoothly, no troubles at all. But I've ended up with a fresh emunand and my 9.2 sysnand is the one with my actual purchases and games on it.
If I wanted to swap this around before I spend too much time fucking with my new emunand, do I just
>go to Gateway
>unlink by formatting sysnand through sysnand's system settings
Does a format just keep sysnand on 9.2 at that point? I've heard some stuff about it wanting an internet connection?
I installed the 9.2.0J zip and it put me on 9.1.0J
I've gotten all the way up to launching rxtools or any cfw into emunand and get a black screen each time.
I figure it's because the firmware.bin files are all for 9.2 or 9.5, while I'm on 9.1.
I made a, seemingly better, starter pack.
It should have everything required point-to-point to get up and running from scratch (pre-downgrade) to rxTools (excluding the firmware files). I also took the liberty of rewriting the firmware .bat file to be more streamlined.
I wrote a pretty thorough readme for the entire process, but some wording is either vague or nonexistent so fleshing out those would be nice. For instance, I could drop the hint at rxTools 2.6 since this pack provides 3.0.
Also, it works during any part of the process so if you just downgraded and don't know what to do next you could follow along perfectly by starting to set up rxTools.
>a pomf cat/lqxrux.7z
Thoughts and suggested improvements are appreciated.
>Now for my stupid question that makes you wish you can strangle me from your screen.
Are the downgraders stable enough for o3ds now? I was waiting at least till my 64gb SD card arrives by thrusday. I would like to downgrade atleast before Nintendo ships out 10.4 and I will lose my softbrick recovery option.
I'm getting mixed signals here, do I install type1 or type2? I'm not sure if I have a low boot rate or not. I'm using a O3DS if that affects anything.
Yo! Everyone, got a quick and important question.
So I got everything working perfectly fine and clean. However, to do so, I had to do a COMPLETE wipe and started with a clean card. This means I've got a new nnid.
Anyway to import my old one? Before I wiped, I backed up EVERYTHING and while I'm not overly sad about losing my save data or whatever, I like to retain my NNID so I don't lose everything I've bought from the Nintendo store you know?
TL;DR: I have a new nnid and I want my old one back on RX-E or whatever.
I even have another 3DS if that'll help.
Hey someone just sent me a pretty much brand new (he played it once and you can tell just by looking at it that it's the truth) Pink 3DS for 60 bucks.
Got it because the casing for it shows no color so no one can see it anyway. Got a few Q's about this.
>It's on version 7 . 1, can it play R O M games without those carts that are 90 bucks?
>What is the pro of getting a cart? On 7 . 1 can nand still go up to 10 . 3?
>What are the set backs of not using a cart?
>Can you get the 7 . 1 up to 9 . 2?
>Can the extra content still be used on a 3DS without the carts (Sky, etc)? Like Fire Emblem's extra areas or Mario GOlf's extra levels?
>About how long does the process take?
>Had another 3DS with Fire Emblem and other saves, will they work on this one with a R O M version of the game from someone else? It was the virtual version not a cart version and read in a few places that saves are tied to the cart or digital version played. Is that true?
>Which games work on 3DS currently? GB, GBA, SNES, etc? Saw a Genesis one but it said it wasn't finished. Are the PS and N 64 ones real?
>Is a 32 mem card big enough? 64 and 128 seem to give some people probs but got a 32 here
>What online issues do you face? Is there a problem if the 3DS has been online already but is version 7 . 1 still anyway? It has already been cleaered for a new user before being sent if that helps
Also got about 25 3DS carts and some places say save them for their headers. What does that mean? Some guy was saying you can use a header from a cheap crappy game for Monster Hunter and other games. Is their any other purpose? (Other than playing them, they are great games)
Why is everyone saying the OP is out dated and to get the new fiIes from other sites?
Read OP or go to the tutorial's section on GBATemp.
Only for Zelda TriForce and newer ones. Unlink emunands and make sure you are on RXE when updating and go again.
Yes. Read the pastebin and use the recommended sysUpdater.
I just want to say thank you to the kind people who've been answering my questions.
Thanks to you a poorfag like me is currently playing Smash 3ds with all the dlc.
Re-POSTING HOW TO AUTOBOOT FOR FAGGOTS READ THIS.
Wait a minute. I just realized what happened.
>have an old 3DS on 9.9
>update to 10.3 because I can't get browserhax working
>run sysupdater to go down to 9.2 (I just checked my downloads, I definitely downloaded 9.2.0, maybe I'm retarded and blind)
>successfully run sysupdater, but it freezes on reboot
>take out SD card, nothing, turn off
>it's back on 9.9
Am I losing my mind here. I guess I'll...try again?
So I have generated the emunand and transfered my backup files back to my sd, but how do I know if I'm actually on the emuNAND?
Also, do I have to install menuhax again on emuNAND if I want to use it?
I just got a brand new 64GB SD Card.
How do I copy my stuff from my old 8GB card to my 64GB card without losing anything? Do I have to do anything special since I'm on emunand and have CFW?
You should use FBI to install BigBlueMenu, since the former has problems with stuff with large filesizes (including many games). Installing an HBL .cia could also be useful.
Beyond that, you're good to go.
Install FBI on Health&Safety app and you are free to go.
Yes, read the pastebin.
Guys, most of your questions are answered on OP's pastebin or GBATemp, PLEASE INVEST SOME FUCKING TIME READING.
>whoaa the thing doesn't turn on
>...unless you use this button combination that forces you to update!
This is what the so-called "softbrick" is
use emunand9tool instead and ignore gateway's whatever
I want though. I was just waiting, if by the time I noticed page 10 no one did I would have done it.
so, im guiding a friend to downgrade his new3DS, he is already at the sysupdater step and as expected the app freezes a lot on #5/#7 all advice i could give him is to try from ironhax and menuhax and just keep trying also with the chrager wifi etc, is there literally nothing else i can advice save for "keep trying until you get those damn red letters"?
okay,so i'm following this guide and so far everything is fine.
But i can't get the firmware.bin for the fbi injection,the mega link needs a decyrption key
Is there a different download link?
So my Menuhax is gone when I unlinked my NANDs.
What do? Install it again?
got to the actual CFW part on O3ds
should i just copy my entire SD card to my 3ds or do I just need the nand.bin and nintendo 3ds folder? I tried opening the python program a bit later down the line but I couldnt get it to make a firm folder, just trying to figure out if this is the issue. the python program would open then immediately close
>It's on version 7 . 1, can it play R O M games without those carts that are 90 bucks?
All firmware below 9.2 are hackable. Please read the fucking information on the OP before asking dumb questions.
>What is the pro of getting a cart? On 7 . 1 can nand still go up to 10 . 3?
Carts can run 3DS and 3DZ files and use micro SD as well as SD cards. That's their only advantage.
>Can you get the 7 . 1 up to 9 . 2?
I don't think you even need to, read the fucking pastebin goddammit.
Saves are tied to carts/digital versions yeah. You can carry on playing them anyway.
Headers don't matter for CIA files, only for carts.
Oh God, I am so glad this shit is working, Nintendo has abandoned hueland and everything was expensive, the fucking jews couldn't even fix the shit e-shop, so we couldn't buy the games there, I am so glad this is out and working.
FUCK YOU NINTENDO
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to browser hack my n3ds. my firmware is 9.9.0-26U.
I try to use my web browser but it wont let me do anything without updating first.
use emunand9tool instead and ignore gateway's whatever
Okay what is this going to help me for and when do I need to installed
by the way if I backup my n3ds files after the formating will my games and savefiles be okay?
Version should be RX-E X.X.XX-XX
Post full error lazy ass fag.
Yes, menuhax has an option to change it. Basic reading skills should do it.
try setting your theme to the default one or something
Hi cid. I say you should wait a little or something, wait for the right time do to stuff. It doesn't seem to be the best moment right now.
Yep. Get it from the wiki guide in the OP.
after moving all my shit to a bigger card im going to attempt downgrading using op's pastebin. wish me luck
I'm fairly certain everybody forgot about that little turd when they were able to downgrade. That's all he was promising and someone beat him to it anyways.
>pingo's face when he was supposed to get the recognition for this and didn't
This is weird. I tried julian's sysUpdater first (no steps 1-8) and then I replaced the sysUpdater files with a mega download from the previous thread.
But even now when I run sysUpdater I don't see steps 1-8 still.
I just got off work and I'm so wiped that I shouldn't even be awake right now, saw some hubbub on /v/. Has 9.9 been cracked or something? Can I finally use my new3ds as something other than a monhun machine?
Everytime I load up sysUpdater on my N3ds i press y to downgrade but then it kicks me back to the HBL Is something wrong or is it just being a bitch?
>Okay what is this going to help me for and when do I need to installed
It's not going to help you in any way at all, but using open source software is cool, right????
>by the way if I backup my n3ds files after the formating will my games and savefiles be okay?
Yep. If you want you can format without formatting the SD card using TinyFormat instead of Nintendo's official tool, so you just keep them, no need for formatting them.
Note that these files won't be accessed by the NAND you format unless you format it again (which re-links the nands, after that I guess you might format the other one, so you basically switch their folders)
If the last part confuses you, you're free to ignore it
yeah i thought since we can downgrade now that the shit storm cover would of ended
i gess il go back into the shadows acting like a noob to keep my cover up, this is the least fun but its all apart of the job
Should i set up menuhax before downgrading or is ironhax enough?
READ THE GODDAMN FUCKING PASTEBIN BEFORE ASKING STUPID FUCKING QUESTIONS GOD FUCKING DAMMIT I'LL STRANGLE YOU CUNTS.
NO YOU FUCKING IDIOT, THAT'S YOUR GODDAMN CARTRIDGE ICON. HAVE YOU NEVER TURNED YOUR SHITTY FUCKING 3DS ON, JESUS FUCK. YOUR FBI IS THE HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION LIKE IT FUCKING SAID WHEN YOU GODDAMN FUCKING INSTALLED IT.
He actually did end up releasing KTM. He just lied about it being the safest and easiest way to downgrade, along with it supposedly releasing along side memchunkhax2 as it's downgrade menu. Plus all the little kids, minus his leigon of cocksuckers, stopped giving a fuck the second they could downgrade without KTM.
Had that extdata problem when I downgraded my 3DS and it wouldn't turn on, had to delete it. Feel like playing some FF Theatrhythm, boot it up, all my scores erased ;_;
At least everything else is still there, but man. I wonder what else from my other games are gone.
>He just lied about it being the safest and easiest way to downgrade
does it actually has a higher rate of bricks?
pls help. I've downgraded to 9.20, I've reinstalled menuhax, I've put the gateway 'launcher.dat' on my SD card, and now when I try to launch the gateway menu through the browser it just stays on the 'gateway is loading' screen. I've deleted my cookies,= - is there anything else I'm doing wrong? (I'm on a new3ds if that makes a difference)
I-I think I'm finally done..
I got rxTools goin
I updated my emunand (not sysnand, thank god)
I got rxTools to coldboot
I think I actually fucking pulled this off
Now how the FUCK can I play me some MHX???
I actually wanted to make this joke since when Smea showed Pingo he was wrong, but never actually took the chance to
Are you sure you're not confusing with the fake screen I made by editing his thread?
Download the CIA
Launch the game
I don't know about him, but I easily get >le autistic memes when I see stuff listing what I've done at what time.
20 days for that? I've heard only 14 days at worst so far.
> All these good people losing their shit with stupid questions
> mfw too scared to ask if there's no problem for someone like me to downgrade since my 3DS came out of the box with 9.5 and is now 10.3
I got work so cant do shit till this friday and gonna order a 64gb or 128 gb card
Do you guys think nintendo can fuck something by the weekend?
Which 9.2 firmware do I download for a 2ds? the original 3ds one? Can i even downgrade my 2ds? it's 9.6 btw. please and thank you
Okay so I've got an interesting problem.
I had my emunand working earlier, installed a .cia and played around, went for a nap
When I woke up I copied a couple more .cia files onto my SD card, but now when I go into rxtools it's just giving me a black screen after the "Loading rxMode" screen
Any idea as to what I can do to fix it?
It doesn't have a higher chance to my knowledge, but equally as much.
I hope not because otherwise I'm hallucinating this. https://twitter.com/JustPingo/status/684148213826383872
I'm really fucking confused now. I'm following this http://i.imgur.com/tH9FMpc.png and it tells me that the gateway utility will create the emuNAND. I followed the steps up to FBI injection, but my firmware doesn't read RX-(numbers). Is this something I have yet to do?
WHY THE FUCK AM I NOT PLAYING GAMES? WHY AM I BEING TECH SUPPORT? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME? I DID THIS WITH THE ORIGINAL GATEWAY EXPLOIT AND BACK WHEN THE 9.2 EXPLOIT CAME OUT TOO. HELP ME, FUCK.
True, true. But I still paid cash for some stuff and it would be nice to retain it.
I mean, you're right. It shouldn't matter, but I'm rather attached to things I buy and it would be nice to retain that stuff.
And I'm addicted to puzzle swap.
Alright. I'll go give that a go.
i am dumb. is this guide ONLY for NEW3DS/NEW3DSXL? if so someone spoonfeed me a good guide for o3dsxl
Anyone gotten through with Julian yet, I want to take a break. I'm tired of looking at the same error over and over.
Should I just want for a more stable build? They'll release something before the 11th right?
In the meantime, can I start setting my card up for what comes after 9.2? Is it ok to start doing that now at least?
Trying to install rxtools on my other 3ds using menuhax/ninjahax but it keeps booting me back to menuhax when ever I click the .3dsx , any ideas lads?
Cool song for ya
Gambling is dumb, stop.
>ive joined last week
It happens from time to time. When something for other consoles happen, they get discussed. The Vita got discussed some little when the email exploit was released. Now nothing is happening. It used to be Gateway General, we changed it because other consoles are welcome too. Right now nothing is happening, but from time to time questions about PSP, Wii, PS2, PS3, whatever, DO get asked and answered. They're rare because they're old and nothing is happening for consoles other than the 3DS. You see none of that right now because everyone is busy with the 3DS. Also you can see someone mentioning waiting for the WiiU 5.5 exploit to be released in the first post of this thread. Before the downgrader got released the WiiU was actually the most discussed console past the 3DS.
I don't know honestly, he accepted random commits on Github from other people, but I don't know if they actually got the thing to do anything. It doesn't even actually matter, tough.
Is BBM just a cia file that I can use fbi to install or does it have a different installation process?
Also, can I automatically update games on emunand or should I delete the game and redownload it with the latest patch?
There's one literally in the goddamn fucking OP, holy fucking shit. What is wrong with you retards?
Did you go back into rxTools on the browser and then check?
I feel superior with all my knawledge which I got from the fucking pastebin, Jesus fuck, why can't anyone read?
It should be fine.
Back up emunand with rxTools or something. I'm sure someone else can help you better but you definitely have to back up emunand or it won't work.
Inject Emerald into one of the ambassador games and run it natively
>why are people discussing 3ds hacks when 3ds was just released?
3DS modding scene has been around the longest, has the largest user base and has had the most progress, of course it'll get discussed the most. Not to mention the thing everyone was memeing about finally got released.
>Installed AGB patch
>Install cias on both sys and emu
Remove the SD card
if it works: delete the exdata and put it back in, done
if it doesnt work: boot in recovery mode, update the console and do it all from the beginning again
if it still doesnt work: lol its bricked and youll never fix it
What are the best Japan-only games I should pirate now?
>try browserhax by loading up that QR code to access the URL

f-fuck, isn't it supposed to work? I have an Old 3ds, Ver. 10.3.0-28U
Been helping out with CFW and miscellanous bullshit since the release of this shit. I finally got my CFW and Boot up and running. I'm taking a godamn break.
Read the fucking pastebins. Read the fucking guides. Understand what separates EmuNAND from SysNAND and get to fucking work. You're all so scared to jump, and I know, its terrifying. That jump goes a long way down and there's no coming back if you hit something on the way down, but by god if you make it all the way down, you will pat yourself on the back and have learned that jumping isn't the end of the world!
Can some one help me with rxtools with a n3ds with menuhax. It wont boot into rxtools as it will sort of boot where i can see the logo then restart the go hack to ctrboot where it will crash with a red screen on the bottom screen when i select it again
>using Devmenu when you can use FBI
Stop this meme already.
>Also, can I automatically update games on emunand or should I delete the game and redownload it with the latest patch?
I think you can do the latter if you want, but I'd say it's a little useless. Just let FBI install your DLC .cia files
>tfw just finished downgrade and got all the Nand shit copied onto my computer
its all smiles from here, right?
also we should really do an updated pastebin that is a bit more clean and has some clarification on what NOT to do e.g. the suggested python version download wasnt working for me but i tried the newest and that didnt go so well
Follow this one.
Take out SD card.
Use FBI and shut up. Update games on emunand or redownlaod with lastest patch, it doesn't matter.
No. Use emunandTool to inject it.
I don't know, Use another entry point.
Basically your 3ds runs 2 windows now, the first one is sysNAND should be untouched, be 9.2. The 2nd one is the one you can play around (emuNAND) (but with backup you copy it to your PC), use the browserhax thing to access it .
I'm on 9.2.0-20E and I moved the launcher.dat on again, same thing happens (I did try the DS flascart exploit before realising it's meant for fw 4.5 and below, did I fuck up my system by trying it?) I'll go with the alternative you suggested, how do I restore my NAND if I fuck up? Thanks anon
>Why is chmm such a piece of shit
>Why is CIA installation such a piece of shit
>why is everything such a piece of shit?
Because it's F R E E.
Only for cart users. If you use cia, ignore.
Install their .cia files. If your nands are unlinked, you'll have to install them to both (THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU JUST PRESS L IN FBI, IT MEANS YOU RUN FBI FROM SYSNAND AND THEN FROM EMUNAND)
If you use .cia files you don't need any of that.
If you use .3ds files you need to buy at least one physical game and use its header, and keep the game. and don't buy it used, maybe.
Which of these do I want if I want the Game+v1.1+Eng Patch all in one?
Tried BBM? FBI has problems with DLC.
Back everything up, you mongoloid.
What? You have to install rxTools for emunand to work properly. Go onto rxTools after installing it and it'll boot you into emunand, then install FBI.
No? Gateway exploit backs up your NAND.
No but there's plenty of guides to help you reach all smiles. Just follow instructions.
What are the pros and cons of both CakesFW and NTR? Just got done installing rxTools and was wondering what else I could do.
Alrighty, I'll stick with FBI. Thanks for the help kind anons!
I'm just reading up on this before I get involved. What's the difference between .3ds and .cia? I'm assuming one is for digital download titles and the other is roms pulled from cartridges?
Jesus christ where the fuck do you people come from
I did do that, I think I have it working.
thanks anon for helping, you're a swell fella
that sounds like what I did with my homebrewed Wii. I have every single decent and a ton of the mediocre Wii games installed; don't play ANY of them.
I think I enjoy the thrill of setting up homebrew more than playing the games...
Yes, of course you do. And I'm done helping anyone else now. You ruined it for everyone
I'm kinda having a problem installing Menuhax.
I put the Menuhax folder onto my SD Card and put in the 3DS and when I get into Homebrew I don't see Menuhax. Can anyone tell me what's wrong?
I wish I had your luck and courage.
I wish you were my friend so I could bug you for tech support now and then and also play vidya with you.
None of my 3DS friends have any interest in downgrading.
Yes, you idiot.
Happened to me once too, just turn it off and back on again.
I haven't played my 3DS in months. MonHun 4 was great fun though.
Just use the one in the pastebin, man.
You're welcome, nigger.
FFS tinyformat formatted my emu instead of sysnand. What would be the best way to move my saves from sys to emu, or should I just make a new emu and start over?
>works with the new entrypoints
>it's actually good unlike rxtools 3.0
rxtools 2.6 only gets used because it's easier to install.
A completely different thing. Install it as a .cia and have fun, there's no con. You get easy mod loading, screenshots, ingame savestaes (as long as you don't close the game, for now) and other cool stuff.
Just install it and see for yourself. You'll have fun.
>can someone explain what the fuck ntr is?
Fucking hell, no wonder people don't want to help
I'm saying you can't back up your NAND that way unless you downgrade. I was curious if it was possible before I downgrade as insurance. Now I have my answer (I think).
Here's an interesting question.
So because the db files get deleted when you unlink NANDS, do I want to put those back and let the data management repair them? I'm assuming the EmuNAND also has db files as can be scene in the largest folder.
I believe I am completely safe from pic related as it is shown in my filesystem that the NANDS have split.
I used this guide:
I'm at the last damn step where rxTools have to install. It got through the first step, it said it was installing stuff and when it finished it told me to press any key. When I boot it again and run rxTools, top black screen and red bottom screen. I've done this for quite some time, no RX-E before the version number.
Any help would be appreciated.
>Just install it and see for yourself. You'll have fun.
I know what it is and I actually need it to make use of the Taiko dlc, it's just that there aren't any good guides out there for doing so. I have a RX-10.3 emunand O3DS, but I've only heard that NTR CFW works for N3DS users.
worst fetish. /ss/ is objectively superior
I'M SORRY ANON SENPAIS I FOLLOWED THIS GUIDE
I CANNOT INTO READING COMPREHENSION AND IT IMPLIED THAT YOU JUST CASUALLY RUN BROWSERHAX BEFORE YOU RUN MENUHAX, THE LATTER OF WHICH YOU ACTUALLY NEED THE STARTER PACK THING
S-sorry i'll never do it again
Quick question about menuhax. I just installed it but I don't know if I did it correctly. I just hold L on the home menu, right? Is anything supposed to happen when I do that? Like open up the Homebrew Launcher or menuhax menu or something?
sure, it won't hurt, and you'll be able to play any games that require higher firmware versions
I think most people install BigBlueMenu or DevMenu to install other .CIA files, I've heard that FBI isn't that great
be sure to double check your on the emuNAND (RX3D prefix) firmware before you update though
Anyone got a link to a working CSI of Animal crossing happy home designer
Playing MHX and Paper Jam right now, thanks fampais
got rxtools shit to install on my o3ds but it just forces me back to the menu
on the guide it says " If it just brings you to the menu, select RXMODE and choose BOOT EMUNAND." but where do i do that? go back through browser and load again??
Not run, but install
The GBA game one.
Only if they're unlinked.
having a sky3ds
I think he means the menuhax manager
You have to put it into the "3ds" folder in the root.
I don't want to read all that stuff in the guide.
Are your nands linked?
If so, you have to unlink them
If you don't care about autobooting you can keep them linked. Just uninstall menuhax and use another entrypoint.
I'm confused as all hell here.
this is my first attempt at anything like this and all this downgrading business is throwing me for a loop. I'm reading all these README.md files and none of it is sinking in or making sense to me.
Where do I start?
took out sd card, still not working
I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS WORD-FOR-WORD
WHY HAS GOD FORSAKEN ME
I just want a stable version of the downgrade already.
I've spent so long in error hell in Julian.
Come on you fucking devs, you have all week, get your shit together.
I'm so sad, I just want to downgrade as safely as possible already.
>needing a guide
Just download the NTR.bin and NTR.cia (maybe laziness if you want), put the .bin in the root and install the .cia
put it in the "3ds" folder
not the "Nintendo 3DS" folder.
don't you see their names are different? they're different things
Nintendo 3DS is used by system files
3ds is used by homebrew
How the fuck would this even happen?
After you load rxTools, go into the system settings. Does it say RX3D on the top next to the firmware?
WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK THE PASTEBIN IS FOR HOLY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT
I followed this
And everything went perfectly. I'm installing my first game cia right now: Weegee Mansion
I'm shaking with excitement. I thought my standard size n3ds was never gonna get piracy.
where is your "3ds" folder senpai? all hb apps go there
yep, you confused "Nintendo3ds" with "3ds".
pls read harder
nintendo 3ds has only those long number-letters shit inside and Private
Everything else goes into "3ds"
so its like this: sd -> 3ds - > menuhax_manager
INSTALLATION DATA SUITE always fails, I retried the whole guide like 3 times already. What the fuck.
>Just download the NTR.bin and NTR.cia (maybe laziness if you want), put the .bin in the root and install the .cia
Seriously? Is that all there is to it? How would I go about installing the language and
cheatplugins? There's a tut on 3DSIso, but I think it's only for N3DS guys.
Sorry if I'm being bothersome.
I've completed the process.
The NAND's are unlinked, the firmware's lettered, and all that good stuff.
With RXTools in process, is all that's left to do install some CIA's and get my game on?
and do I update the emunand for firmware spoofing for new games? It's about the last step I need to get it done... just trying to get some confirmation
Hey which gameboy cia file to I install to both NANDs?
Well done for being able to follow instructions unlike the other 90% of retards in this thread, man. Hope you have fun.
It's safe on original 3DS.
Where the hell is your 3DS folder? Follow the pastebin properly, jesus christ.
Just update and do it quick before 10.4 comes out.
I'm getting nothing but "Failed to get Cia file info!" I have the folder directly in my SD card's root folder but nothing is happening. Also I can't exit out of FTP whenever I launch it, it keeps crashing.
On the plus side, my blargsnes is working again somehow. The new version is pretty good, I can see an improvement already.
At least I can enjoy my snes emulator in the meantime. An angel somewhere took pity on me.
I'm still debating on if I even want to do it desu.
Like the only possible reason I can think to do it would be so I can play some MHX with the eng patch but none of my friends would even consider cfw.
And what setting should I use, or it doesn't matter? I used type 2, like that guide said. Previously I had it on Type 0.
They are unliked.
What do you mean? The rxtolls folder is in the SD root.
I've just realized you put a "3ds" folder inside "Nintendo 3DS" too. It needs to be in the root.
It's safe, but it could be safer
Yes. Do it before 10.4 happens.
Oooooh, that's a little messier. You're not going to have much fun figuring out the guides, I can help you though. Try to read the guide on the NTR Github page and ask me if you're confused by anything.
>Followed that guide.
>Absolutely perfect. FBI right on the home page.
Can testify, it works well. RXTools was janky as fuck and had a white screen on my 3DSXL for a 50 second period, but a reboot fixed it right up...
Is that really all though? What's all this shit about cryptofixing and firmware spoofing? Is RX-9.2.20 okay for all current games?
So I installed FBI to my NAND, backed up my NAND, formatted my SD and made an emuNAND out of my NAND that had FBI on it, and now when I boot into my emuNAND, FBI isn't there. What the fuck? Literally everything else is good to go except this, what gives?
I'm currently stuck trying to reinstall menuhax via the browser. Just keep getting told an error has occured. I looked up emunand, but it requires the homebrew launcher to be there. I deleted extdata, I don't really know what to do atm, just googling like crazy. Apparently sliderhax should work, but I'm getting jack shit.
I think I've answered about 200 questions in the last two hours. 50% were in the pastebin, 40% were too stupid to even fucking be in the pastebin and only 10% were valid questions
Yes and yes, nigger. Have fun.
Play through Ace Attorney Trilogy if you haven't already.
I'm going fucking crazy m8. It's worse than a zoo at this point.
a collage of the shit that made me laugh/slap my head so far
in 11 months may we look back on this and laugh
o3ds here, successfully downgraded but now everytime I restart my 3ds or go to the home screen with an sd card inserted I get black screens. It works fine when I take it out though. At first it seemed bearable but now I'm setting up rxtools and it's messing everything up. Any ideas as to what the problem is?
you are missing a file when trying to install .cias.
So what? Not homebrewing anything in years means you can't read properly? Stop making excuses and triple check every fucking thing you read on the guides, man. It couldn't be simpler right now.
Install FBI on emuNAND.
Standard, too much trouble desu.
Yes. Learn how to google, please.
It should say RX3D but it sounds like it's okay. So long as there's something before the firmware number with RX, you should be okay. Yeah, install FBI.
If I were to follow this guide for ctrboot manager (O3dsXL) https://gbatemp.net/threads/rxtools-cfw-coldboot-full-installation-guide-for-new3ds-from-browserhax-homemenuhax-to-rxtools.398420/
Would it override any of my current Emunand and games and shit? Right now, I'm loading Rxtools through Browserhax
Ah alright. I'm thinking about just dealing with this because the only save I cared about was animal crossing. So there's no way to transfer one or two saves over?
Thanks for listening.
How to unlink nands:
1. In sysnand, go to System Settings -> Other Settings -> Format System (Do not accept yet)
2. Eject your Sd card (don't worry, it is safe)
3. Accept to Format your 3DS/2DS (let it connect to the internet if it asks, it will not update your system)
4. After it reboots, go through the setup screen and set everything up
5. Once in the home menu, insert back your sd card and let it create some files on your sd card.
6. Your nands are now unlinked, and there are 2 ID folders in your Nintendo 3DS folder on your SD card (one for emunand, another for sysnand)
No, it formats everything. Make backups constantly.
I've never smoked in my life but this thread is seriously making me consider it goddamn.
No. EmuNAND exists on the SD card.
There might be on New 3DS but on Original 3DS? Nope. Please actually read the pastebin properly though, don't be like the other retards.
Yup. best to wait.
If it doesn't improve by the time Nintendo releases 10.4 it only gets worse.
The .cia has to be made specifically for the 3DS. You can find some on 3DS games pirating sites or create them by yourself
For RxTools: do I have to go into the browser everytime I want to get to the emuNAND? I tried making it so it would load upon start but it would go on to say something about an arm9 and how it was missing, so rxtools never started unless I went the long way through the browser
You know what, FUCK THIS. What did THIS have to do. I thought you told me to install it again and try another setting.
>There might be on New 3DS but on Original 3DS? Nope. Please actually read the pastebin properly though, don't be like the other retards.
Thanks bae, ill downgrade it than since its always better to do it right the first time.
Kek, I'm gonna be feeling silly about that 9.9 thing for a while. What possessed me to take a fucking picture of it and not realize what I was looking at, I'll never know. Got there in the end tho, senpai.
If you tap Y two or three times and nothing happens (30+ seconds), just shut the 3DS off and try again.
>Install FBI on emuNAND.
How? I booted the homebrew launcher from BrowserHax after I got into my emuNAND, ran FBI and tried to install the FBI.cia, and not only does it fail to install, if I press R twice to uninstall titles, it tells me that I have no titles installed
Cant get into NNID. Despite Patching the NVer with FMP
According to Tutorial (http://3dshomebrew.blogspot.com.co/2015/12/tutorial-how-to-fix-emunand-error-022.html) I have to update till 10.3
Cant on n3ds. What do?
No. Just follow the guide in the OP to update NVer and install freemultipatcher and you'll have everything you might need.
Either run FBI.3dsx from the HBL in emunand or inject it with rxTools
okay,i updated the system through emunand,but now i can't access rxtools anymore.
I'm either stuck at the "loading rxTools.dat" screen or i'm getting a communication error.
Anything else i needed to do after the update?
So I finally got everything working on a n3ds, I downloaded monster hunter X, and after I installed I went to open it and it said I could update it through the store.
Can I do this to play online? This is on my emunand, but I know I can't update past 9.5. I'm currently just on 9.2 on my emunand.
Actually, I thought it worked. I rebooted and when I go to system settings, it's back to the regular version, no more RX-E. And here I thought I was almost done.
So what now, reinstall menuhax, or something else?
>Oooooh, that's a little messier. You're not going to have much fun figuring out the guides, I can help you though. Try to read the guide on the NTR Github page and ask me if you're confused by anything.
Thanks for the help, pal. Did a little research. Personally, which did you use? Laziness or Full? (I'm assuming that the only difference between Lazy and Full is the home button)
I swear the guide to get RXtools to autoboot with ctrbootmanager was in one of the pastebins last night. Anyone have the link? I finally got around to setting up menuhax to autoboot so now I just need to get it so I can boot into HBL or Emunand
I felt like I fucked up and tried reformating the mini-SD and just adding the backup Nintendo 3DS folder back with only the original numbers and letters folder and every time I add it back to the 3DS a 2nd folder just keeps making itself.
How do you update your emunand to 9.5
and will that undo everything we've been downgrading for despite needing it for online?
Or is that what the sysnand is for..oh my god, lightbulb. It makes TOTAL SENSE NOW
you and me brother
ive been doing this for 5 hours
and by reset, am i supposed to be resetting the console, or just the program? i've just been r+down+b'ing my way out and then re-trying
Why can't I get anywhere with this? Getting stuck here. O3ds 10.3 with menuhax and ironhax does the same thing
I use Laziness. Yes, that's the only one. Laziness also seems to get updated before Cell9's to work with newer system updates, but that doesn't matter much.
No, but some people are actually adding stuff to his Github, maybe they do it for him and let him get credited for it, but it doesn't look like they're doing anything useful either.
Ok, just downgraded my n3DS to 9.2.
How to access homebrew stuff now though?
I tried using the browser using tubehax DNS, but it just keeps telling me to update.
Sorry if it a stupid question, but I ctrl+f'd this thread and didn't see anyone talking about it.
So the update 1.1 for MHX can be installed straight through FBI or do I need something else? Been hearing about NTR but not sure why.
If he actually is it won't work any better than what's currently available, I can guarantee that.
It's concept is nothing but a basic GUI menu that uses Pingo's shitty ass modified ZIP files in conjunction with stolen code from memchunkhax2 to downgrade.
So again, no.
I've tried deleting my rxTools folder so far to have that be remade, as well as replacing the firmware.bin file with a copy pre-emunand. I'm still having the same problem though.
This is for step 1, says go to the Gate Way site but later in the steps it says you don't need net.
Not sure why they are posting contradicting info.
Which is correct?
guess I gotta post hot anime girls so I get an answer
>tfw RX3D system update
I looked to make sure I was in emuNAND several times and I'm still paranoid
Can I still play my physical copy of MHX after downgrading and cfw? N3 ds emunand only goes up to 9.5 so I'm not sure.
Also should I wait to get a bigger SD card or proceed to install cfw with my 4gb one?
What are the most common reasons CIA installs fail?
I managed to install Mario Cart 7 just fine but it keeps failing while trying to install Animal Crossing New Leaf.
Already made sure I have enough space, running rxTools on 9.2 N3DS if that helps.
Everytime I boot, the 3DS goes into the nand that doesn't have my bought games and that firmware isn't RX-E. If boot into rxtools and reebot afterwards it goes into the one with my stuff and the RX-E version.
Is this normal? How do I boot it in the RX-E one always?
>new sysupdater practically brick-proof
Even if he does release it, it's going to be even more useless now than it ever.
Is there hope for a better downgrader to release before the 11th?
Also, is it as easy to brick your system installing CFWs as it is downgrading it?
I want the worry ride to be over after I downgrade...
Playing games online should be as simple as it used to be. Just connect to the Internet and go.
From what I recall, you must not download official updates, rather you have to find patched. CIAs.
So do I need to reformat/delete all this shit before the emunand process or what?
I have Gateway and emunand installed and have done for about a year. I never thought about CFW because what I have already works well enough. If I was going to install CFW though, would there be any extra steps to take since I've already got emunand? Or is it much easier?
>Also, is it as easy to brick your system installing CFWs as it is downgrading it?
Nope, not at all. It's actually hard to brick the thing by simply following the CFW procedure, you'd have to derail so much from the guide and do some pretty specific stuff that I can't even imagine someone managing to do them unknowingly.
>you must not download official updates
You can if you're able to. The updates are just region-restricted, so if you installed JP game on US device, you cannot download the update from eshop. In this case, your only option is to install the update as a .cia.
It does say shit about it man. Back up your card and just carry on doing what it says. Gateway will format your card for emunand.
At least you're actually fucking making sure unlike all these other fucking morons.
Just install cia update files for games, it's fine dude, don't worry. You've done all the hard stuff.
Nope, you have to back up emunand using rxTools.
Read the fucking guides, man.
Holy fucking shit, you retards are insufferable. You typed it wrong, you brain dead mongoloid. Look again and type it properly, jesus fuck. I've had to say this 300 fucking times now.
I can't stop answering these dumb questions. Help me.
Read the pastebin man, please.
Ace Attorney Trilogy if you haven't already.
Dude, don't bother. You have a Gateway, the fuck is the point? Just install FBI/BBM for DLC.
Okay, so I think the problem is that when I unlinked the NANDs, the DB folder didn't carry over to the new fresh emuNAND.
I've copied the DB folder from the working sysNAND over to the underpopulated emuNAND folder (each one is the really long string of random characters under the root /Nintendo 3DS/ folder).
Will report results in a minute.
Does the browser need to connect to the net or is it just to set up?
On Old 3DS, loaded up SysUpdater and it just gives me sysUpdater 0.4.2b by profi200
No getting stuck on "numbers" people have been talking about or anything
The red text is different too, it just says "dont run this in sysNAND Gateway mode" or something.
I still get the A update Y downgrade B exit stuff though.
Should I just downgrade now?
pic related, how it's "supposed" to look like
I've tried about 3 different CIAs now. I need serious help.
Running RXtools (the latest nightly) and emuNAND is at 9.5, I'm using a USA Majora's Mask N3DSXL. I can play any game CIA (like MHX) without a problem EXCEPT Zelda Tri Force Heroes. WHAT THE FUCK GIVES? Anyone got advice or a dl to a working USA CIA?
I also own the actual cart, but it prompts for an update to 9.9.
It happens a lot with the browserhax method. You should get menuhax and ctr and set it up to autoboot into rxtools instead. Way easier.
I thought this wasn't true? Steveice actually updated?
Should I switch from Julian?
What does it say the version is updated?
Alright, so I was able to downgrade to 9.2, I was able to boot into the homebrew launcher a few times using L, after installing menuhax the L button while booting wont help, any help is appreciated
>Nope, you have to back up emunand using rxTools.
What do you mean?
But shit it too late, I have formated my sd card which done everything , now rxTools telling me emunand was not found in my SDcard, which my SDcard still has (I copy and paste again after format)
I guess I'm too greedy. I downgraded twice to install the profile thinghy and now when I want to update my Emunand I get the following error:
"An error has occurred. Unable to update. The system will now be restarted."
Should I try to update my emunand using a game cartridge like Smash or Pokemon Y?
