if you want autoboot into EMUNAND as soon as you start your 3DS, take 3.0 or nightly.

If you want to use webbrowser to get into emunand, 2.6

A lot of the guides in the pastebin are conflicting and use different data/links for the same stuff.

Should we do something?
>>
>>127649940
use 3.0. Here's a link: https://my.mixtape.moe/vxcoit.zip
>>127650049
I don't think so. I remember 9.2 users having to wait a very long time without updating before they got what they wanted.
>>
I made an improved non-kickass 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.

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.

Thoughts and suggested improvements are appreciated.

>Should we do something?
Yes. Are you just a complainer or are you also offering to help do something? I think the guides have gotten pretty convoluted.

Is there a risk of some dick posting a tutorial with them wrong files and bricking people's consoles on purpose?

Like, just rename a .zip file containint the firmware files for each 3ds and upload them somewhere. Everyone with an original 3ds downloading the firmware for the new one and viceversa. That'd be a dick move.

Type 1, don't hold any button and touch the touchscreen.

That way if you just want to go back to the sysnand you have to press a button (any), and if you want to boot emunand you don't press anything.
>>
>>127650220
type2
>>
>>127650220
if you want to HOLD a button to get into EMUNAND during boot = type 1

if you want to HOLD a button to get into SYSNAND during boot = type 2

after you choose which type, it asks you to register the button you want to use, so you have to hold the button you want to register AND tap the touch screen.

Someone should make a new tutorial for everything after the part where you downgrade. If so many people are having problems with these instructions is because they are actually quite unclear or just basically what you'd tell anyone after having done this a month ago "I remember doing some shit like this" kind of thing instead of specifying.

Hell tinyformat for instance. That thing on the guide is just like "install tinyformat, done". You get a lot of people complaining because it's not just "install tinyformat, done". Hell I think I might do that guide myself.

I need someone who has a Japanese N3DS with CFW on it, with a working credit card. I can't seem to make mine accept my debit card to pay for removing the browser filter (for YouTube and shit).

The only thing is that you'd need to pay 32 yen (about USD0.27) to remove the filter on your own console, then dump the filter remover DLC (yes, it's DLC) for me. I'll give instructions.

Sort of, but I needed a very specific build to get it to work, that a kind anon uploaded. Also for some reason you can't set Menuhax to activate on no button presses, had to switch back to default.
Also instead of using the boot manager you can just hex edit the Menuhax 9.2 payload, Ctrl f "boot", replace with something else to load from

>What if I use dd on Linux? Does this work for emuNAND?
Yeah, but you have to backup the files first and your FAT32 partition will get fucked up after resizing so it'll have to be reformatted, then you can move the files back. I've done it this way myself.
>>
>>127650721
Did you not install menuhax on 9.2? Keep in mind you need to delete the 10.3 payload if you did that on 10.3 and install menuhax on 9.2.

did you remove the necessary files of 2.6 if you had used it?

did you add the data folder and the new rxtools files in your sdcard?

did you rename the old boot.3dsx that launches homebrew channel to boot_fuckeverything.3dsx and added the two files from CTR?

are you autistic?

IF ANYONE IS ON O3DS IS HAVING TROUBLE GETTING INTO THE ESHOP AFTER INSTALL CFW
USE THIS GUIDE COURTESY OF ANOTHER ANON(>>127580736)
;


1. Backup your emuNAND.
2. Backup all emuNAND files (ticket.db etc.) with rxTools.
3. Backup the content of your SD card.
4. Format emuNAND.
5. Recover your SD card content and boot rxTools in emuNAND.
6. Update to 10.3.0-28X and boot into emuNAND again.
7. Go to system settings and to NNID at the top; follow instructions.
8. Boot emuNAND and start the eShop; simply restart the 3DS if it keeps looping after the password input.
9. Once in the eShop, close it and shut down.
10. Recover your whole SD card once more. *
11. Inject emuNAND backup.
12. Inject all emuNAND file backups.
13. Start the eShop in emuNAND and it should refresh your software.
14. And now you should have emuNAND eShop access without any loss of StreetPass/Save/Friend/etc. data.

>>127650438
Both 3DSs can be downgraded and/or use CFW if that's what you mean. You have to be careful which firmware files you choose, though.

If you're talking about games it doesn't matter, but out of region DLC requires NTR.
>>127650575
Arguable. Cakes is a better CFW in general, but is newer and doesn't have all the same features yet.

Cakes wasn't made for the N3DS, though. mid-kid, the creator of Cakes, uses an O3DS and doesn't plan on upgrading. This also means fixing bugs on the N3DS is harder for him because he needs someone else to test things.

You can autoboot any CFW as long as you have menuhax and ctrbootmanager. In fact, you can install both CFWs and have them each as entries on your CTRBootManager list.
>>
>>127650883
did you have rxtools 2.6 before you put the new rxtools is this the first time you're adding rxtools?

All those unofficial steps (toggling wifi on/off, HBL netloader, ftp, etc) are no good for getting past the soft-brick after a "successful" downgrade right? That's just a matter of pure luck at that point?

>>127650873
no.
just jiggle EVERYTHING
turn wifi on, turn wifi off, unplug your charger, make sysupdater boot.3dsx on your sd root.

I wanna make an attempt to do all of this shit so I can at least play a single game on my shitty 4 gb, but I've read that I need to do shit beyond simply transferring everything that's on the SD card over to the new one once I have CFW installed.

>>127650601
I have a JP N3DS with CFW on it, but no credit card. I just don't use the browser ever since I heard about that filter thing. I use OoT3D to setup all my stuff and I don't really have a reason to use the browser besides that.

Fuuuuuuck

I don't even understand what just happened. Everything was set up perfectly. Even had it auto-booting into emunand

I tried installing a custom theme through CHMM2, but it installed onto sysnand by mistake. I figured no big deal, just find a way to do it through emunand (install hbl.cia?) But now, it always loads into sysnand on coldboot, no matter what I do. Even tried reinstalling menuhax. What the hell happened?
>>
Just wondering, I've already figured out how to get it to load into rxTools on boot and all that shit. If I transferred all my stuff from one SD to another, would I have to repeat much of the process? Or is it just the whole injecting the emunand thing that I keep hearing about?
What files would I have to use to do that, anyway?

That's true, although it's more likely the iMac added extra files in the update folder.

then I renamed the existing file, put the bootcfg and new boot.3dsx into the root of sdcard

That's a problem with O3DS+Cakes and the latest CHMM2 build. Somehow, it relinks the nands on installation of a custom theme through some cursed fuckery. Some anon a few threads ago linked a mysterious build that should work, after you've set everything back up. I personally tested it myself.

oh really? so explain to me why it works for me on first try....

people here have been using that guide aswell
>>
>>127651178
...nothing?

That's the point. If you use type 2 autoboot and don't press anything, you boot into the regular system. If you use type 1 and don't press anything (and didn't press any button when you assigned it) you should boot into ctrmanager automatically. If you open up the boot.cfg and change the timeout to 0 it will boot into rxTools automatically and skip ctrmanager altogether.

You can't just boot into emunand without having any other screens pop up, btw.
>>
Looking at both the imgur flowchart and the wiki page (http://homebrew-general.wikia.com/wiki/Nintendo_3DS)

Just finished backing up my card and formatting my emunand. For rx tools the image says I need five files, three from the rx tools download, the firmware.bin and slot0x25keyX.bin, while the wiki page says I just need the rx tools files and the firmware bin.

I don't think so. Nothing in that guide touches SysNAND.

It might also be a problem with some rxtools builds. In that case it's just a thing that happens with O3DS and some CFW builds, N3DS doesn't have this problem.

>>127651330

How do we install to sysNand through FBI - I thought FBI only worked in emuNand?

If one of the guides in OP explains it, please just call me a retard.

Oh ok,my bad , should i try it on my system? Im kinda afraid itll still brick

Finally managed to install everything and a couple of .cia (Smash and Rodea), but whenever I try to play online with Smash (emunand 10.3) I get "You will not be able to play online without agreeing to the nintendo 3ds service user agreement", even though I did agree. Rodea, on the other hand, doesn't even start after I agree the User Agreement, so what I think is that this is somewhat buggy. Any way to fix it?

>>127651423
If you use type 1 and don't press any button while you press the touchscreen, it will boot directly into CTRmanager. You would require to press any button while turning on the console in order to load the system menu.

If you use type 2 and press any button while you press the touchscreen, it will boot directly into CTRmanager. It will load into the system menu as long as you press the specific button you assigned.

Both modes can be used to access CTRmanager without pressing a button.

Hey man, at least it's 100% free to set up, besides the gigantic SD card you'll be buying to fill with videogames. Someday we'll have Kernel9 hax like the SALT team does and this'll be all behind us.

You probably should re-setup everything to be safe.

Inject FBI into sysnand's H&S app with this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-inject-any-app-into-health-safety-o3ds-n3ds-cfw-only.402236/

Then boot into sysnand with signatures patched with the CFW of your choice to install the GBA CIAs (to SD, of course, if that wasn't obvious)

Well I chose type 1 and I have to hold my L to get into CTRManager.

Memchunkhax2 works on the sole condition that one of the memory areas that govern kernel access has a tiny, tiny window of time where you can reassign that memory area to somewhere with regular user access. Getting that tiny window right is unreliable by nature, since we're racing against the system processes.

>>127651590
Force EULA agreement with Config.cia: https://mega.nz/#!cQVAhbwQ!kzyHFuyb0McVW9ZUHXSF_B4zzVWlf4gY7Q152AC1n4A

Install that to emunand, then navigate into EULA config and set the value to ff:ff.

Suit yourself. Either that, or try unlinking the nands again through formatting system memory on sysnand. Might work.

>>127652019
Kinda redundant imo, just format EmuNAND with EmuNAND9 and use EmuNAND Backup Tool to dump its NAND.bin

EmuNAND formatting literally takes SysNAND and copies it to the SD card in a separate partition. You can even flash that NAND.bin back to your 3DS (Gateway Menu, Hardmod) if you wanted.
>>
>>127652019
Yes. I think the image guide is old and shitty. DESU I'd use the N3DS guide and just follow it as close as you can. It's written way better.

if you have O3DS and 10.3 on EMUNAND, go to eshop and redownload the bought games to your emunand.

Thats it.

Launched RxTools on my DS.

It tells me to go into 'other options' and pick 'inject FBI to emunand' but I don't see that option at all. If it matters there were three choices for FBI files for me to put into my SD card and I just picked one at random cause the guide says it would be fine.

The closest option of the three I see (the other being downgrade MSEt and restore original H&S app) is just Install FBI over H&S App. Is this what the guide means?

Wait, I think I've learned something. Just tried booting into CTR from Sliderhax, which then loaded into rxTools, which then auto-booted to... Menuhax. Which then booted to CTR again, and so on.

Somehow, something got jumbled around.

Someone here should write a new guide that has you use Cakes+NTR and emunand9 instead of gateway and/or rxtools

also we should make a more complete starterkit that doesn't require people to hunt down files and then compare md5s

instead of injecting it into health and safety you can just install it as a new separate app more easily

the guide you're using is old and confusing, I told you how to do it a more simple way

Uh actually that's not quite right.

I think you are confusing Emunand9 (gateway alternative for making emunand, dumping nands, etc.) with a tool called Emunand Tool (something you run on Windows to extract emunand from an SD card)

>>
>>127652560
That's what I was thinking.
After all, all I'm trying to do is transfering files from one SD to other, supposedly every process done is... well, done, so the 3ds would still be reading the same files.

Or the GATEWAY name the card when formatted with the LAUNCHER.dat gets is important?

>>127652538
NAND.bin is the backup of your sysnand

No, the emunand is a 1GB or 2GB partition, not a file.

Use dd or bbcopy or emunandtool to move the emunand, everything else can be copy/pasted

you'll have to setup homebrew again, install fbi (a cia manager), then dump your sysnand to nand.bin, back up that file as well as everything else on your sd card, then make an emunand (wipes sd card)

the emunand will be a copy of your sysnand so it'll have fbi then and you can install things there

Yes. Format EmuNAND with EmuNAND9. Back up your important files first before doing it, though. Also, use EmuNAND Backup Tool to dump the NAND.bin after you format EmuNAND, then move it (off the sd card) somewhere safe on your computer.

>>
>>127652879
No, this is just an alternative to the health and safety injection. Pasta still runs in sysnand so you don't really want to use it.

After you install fbi.cia you create an emunand with either the gateway menu or emunand9. Make sure you back up your files first because this will wipe the SD card.

Once you have an emunand you copy back your files and then setup rxtools.

This is probably seeming like a really long process, but it's definitely worth 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/

This means I'm now on a 9.2 sysnand and 9.2 rxtools+emunand N3DSXL from Europe.
I've got everything working so far.

Here's the thing: I want to update my emunand from 9.2 to 9.5 because people said it might be needed for some games soon and not all games have fw spoofed .cia's.

Can someone give me a REALLY foolproof guide on how to do this? The last time I tried to do it I ended up updating my sysnand and everything fucked up.

I'm type 2 menuhax which means if I press nothing I boot into emunand, if I hold L I go into sysnand

Here's my problem:
>boot 3ds
>ctrboot gets me the "rxtools" or "homebrew" options
>do nothing for 3 seconds or click rxtools
>boots me into rx9.2 emunand

ok, good.

So the idea now is to go into homebrew WHILE in emunand and then use sysupdater to update to 9.5, correct?

So as said I'm now on my emunand. I use browserhax and it gives me the same dialog I got at first, the purple window saying "rxtools" or "homebrew"

If I select nothing or use rxtools it goes black+red crash screen. If I use homebrew that works.

But am I really in emunand homebrew then? How do I know 100%?

I hope someone took the time to read this, I'm so nervous I'm sweating.

Get yourself FBI on EmuNAND and install+run profi200's sysupdater.cia (the original one) and use it to update emunand.

You can get HBL on your EmuNAND (and sysnand!) by installing yellows8's Homebrew Launcher Loader, which is a .cia. Hold Y while booting it for the first time and it'll download the payload it needs so you can use it offline in the future.

Don't worry, anon. The downgrading process is the biggest part you can fuck up on. Just make sure after you make the emuNAND that you only install shit on there, and also have NANDs unlinked. From there on, no more worries, just free games.
>>
>>127653153
>But am I really in emunand homebrew then? How do I know 100%?
Yes. You just need to remember which NAND you were in previously. That's the only way.

As for the updating to 9.5 guide, there's actually a link to one in the link you posted if you scroll down toward the bottom of the first post.

To sum it up, you'll be running sysupdater on your emunand with some 9.5 firmware files. Basically you're using the same program you downgraded with (but you probably want to go download a different version) and just a different firmware package. Load it up. Hit update. Wait. Done.

>>127653153
here is the foolproof of it. Boot your console. You know you are on emunand because it has your shit instead none of your shit. Get sysupdater, get 9.5 firmware package for your area, systupdate your emunand.

>>
>>127653357
Oh, I previously used the sysupdater I had first gotten and put on my sd card when I downgraded.

Which was Julian's. That one didn't come as .cia, only as .3dsx and .smdh

So I have to grab the profi200 .cia sysupdater, install it with FBI while on emunand and then I'll get it added as an icon like I did with big blue menu?

Then I "update" from that sysupdater while having the correct 9.5 files in the updates folder, yes?

Sorry I know I'm annoying
>>
>>127653045
That doesn't matter that much. Just continue from there. Emunand9 is a newer and better tool but if you already have an emunand it's not worth making another one. If you ever want to make an emunand backup or something, though, use emunand9.

Yeah, that's fine. If you're unlinked then menuhax is technically only running on sysnand.

Don't worry about it, this shit's confusing. That sounds correct, but if you're EU or JAP N3DS I think you have to remove some files. Make a backup of EmuNAND with EmuNAND Backup Tool before doing it, because you could "brick" EmuNAND.

FBI injection is a pain in the ass, honestly. If you backed up sysnand or emunand before unlinking them, you can use that NAND.bin and reinject it into EmuNAND to get a clean version and try injecting again.

Otherwise, try to boot HBL while in EmuNAND and run FBI as a .3dsx to install FBI.cia

Simple. I got two SD cards.
8gb and 32gb.

I want to transfer everything to the bigger card, my question was if I could just copy everything and it'd be fine but you said I needed to copy emuNAND because it's partition is hidden and I asked how. I have a emunandtool but as a homebrew.
>>

A computer program can play around with your SD partitions (haven't done this myself so can't think of any off the top of my head) but I do know that EMUNAND9 can do it directly on the 3DS.

Am I supposed to press downgrade or upgrade?

Alright, planning out my course of action for now.

Currently I followed the imgur guide up until the point where it tells me to Inject FBI using rxtools launched through the rxtools browser page. I have rxtools files on my SD card right now, along with an emunand set up.

Anon recommended I use another method, which I am planning to do.

Without changing anything I have on my SD card except adding pasta, fbi.cia and fbi.3dsx, I'll boot up HB menu using the browserhax and install pasta.

After installing pasta, i will launch the homebrew through browserhax again, and then launch fbi through the menu.

From the fbi, I can install fbi.cia, which should apparently be installed on both my systemnand and emunand (?), after which I'm done and now have a separate app instead of H&S to install cias from.

All I need to do from here on is unlink my nands and then setup rxtools coldboot (?) and I'm done?

I don't even know, I'm just a fucking dog.

Have you done the /dbs/ reset trick in EmuNAND too? (Warning: Closing out of System Settings (MSET) will boot you back into SysNAND)

By the way, never enter Data Management after you start using .cias: It will delete all channels/saves that are non-legit. Use FBI/DevMenu/BBM to manage stuff instead.

Please. As soon as it gets past CTR the second time, attempting to load RxTools just results in a red bottom screen, frozen until I shut down. Formatting sysnand didn't help, I don't know what the fuck is going on. I can't even load into emunand anymore.

I'm actively recommending a different thing. Look at the GBATemp link that keeps getting posted. It says it's for N3DS but the process is nearly identical and it's a much newer guide that's written a lot better.
>>127653771
Sysnand is better since you'll be spending all your time in emunand.
>>127653826
Only if you're on Cakes or if you want to use the DLC and it's from another region.

Just do it normally. If you're unlinked then menuhax isn't installed on emunand.
>>127653937
>I wanted to try to remove and reinstall it using FBI, but I have no idea on how to delete it
You'll have to know its titleid. I think you can find that out from 3dbrew or 3dsdb.
>>127653946
Ah, gotcha. You can copy the stuff besides the emunand over normally but you need Emunand Backup Tool on your computer or some other alternative to move the emunand off the SD card and on to the other one. I personally always use dd to make an exact copy, then just resize partitions and move things back.
>>127654040
downgrade
>>127654056
You're 99% correct. Installing fbi to sysnand won't put it on emunand, though, as far as I know. You're supposed to do that before you make an emunand, so that when emunand is created by coping your sysnand it's already on there.

However if it doesn't end up being no your emunand you can always boot your emunand, then boot the homebrew launcher from there and install fbi.cia again.

Yeah, unlink nands and setup coldboot is the last step.

games are included in the files you can just copy/paste, emunand is trickier

it's been answered a few times above, but basically if you're on Windows use Emunand Backup Tool, if you're on Mac OS or GNU/Linux use dd to either copy the first SD card to a .bin file and then copy that file to the new SD, or just do a direct copy SD to SD if you can plug in both at once. After that enlarge the partition (since it was an exact copy including size), reformat the fat32 partition since enlarging it will fuck it up, finally move your files back.
>>
>>127654340
Wipe, or format? As I understand it, wiping (manually deleting everything) won't remove the emunand, formatting will.

HeyGuys

I have successfully injected FBI into my emuNAND and I get the FBI screen when I open H&S after following the guides.

What's the next step from here?

Right now, I'm assuming that every time I boot the system I end up in my sysNAND, and I need to open the rxtools link in browser every time I want to boot my emuNAND.

So I guess what I should do now is just unlink my nands like the pastebin says.

Then afterwards, I use this guide http://pastebin.com/6BBug6nD to make sure that emuNAND boots with rxtools every time I turn the system on without needing to use the browser link?

After that I'm all set?

Right?

G-guys?
>>
>>127654474
Format it completely to be safe.

>>127654517

Yeah something got fucked up, 9.2 doesn't nag you to update when using browser.

doublecheck and recopy firmware cias to your SD card. And if you used tux's sysupdater version then try julian20 version.
>>
>>127654628
you have enough space on your card?

Is built-in GBA emulator much better than homebrew one? I kind of want to keep sysnand as clear as possible but it requires to install cia for each game into it.
>>
>>127654285
Wait, is pastacfw emunand or sysnand? Which NAND does that method install fbi.cia to?

>>127654421
ironhax on 9.2 sounds odd. if you can't find any other way to get HBL then yes update back to 10.3 and downgrade again

>>127654628
O3DS NAND is ~1GB, N3DS is ~2GB. Did you run out of space on your card?

Also sysnand backup is redundant: Format emunand and dump emunand with emunand backup tool

>>
>>127654479
you guys need to start using the newer build that verboses the kernel hack. Failed to get CIA information is an error you get when the program boots without crash but because race attack fails.

THIS IS NEWER:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/toxpj6gozq6kh82/sysUpdater.zip?dl=1

Main difference in this build is that it verboses it's status so you know why it crashes instead of black screen, you know does it succeed in Kernel Hack.
USE THIS to have more attempts faster. Do not press Y if this version outputs kernel status ffffffff and does not actually succeed in kernel race attack, gets a kernel status and a PID= process, since unless the tool does this the downgrade will not work.

(I was doing that shit for 5 hours before it worked)

The only reason you'd want homebrew GBA is if you care about managing your .savs/.gba and have ability to save/load state

dd is a command line utility for making exact copies of things on unix-like operating systems

if you're on windows there's a similar program called bbcopy, otherwise you can just use Emunand Backup Tool
>>127654371
get pastacfw, fbi.3dsx, fbi.cia
launch homebrew launcher, launch pasta, go back to homebrew, launch fbi, install fbi.cia
then when you make your emunand it should copy over fbi

>how do I tell if I'm installing to sysnand or emunand
which one you booted into before running fbi is where you're installing
>>127654421
yeah that means you're on 9.9 or higher, I'm afraid you'll have to start over
>>127654474
your emunand is probably fine so you don't need to necessarily delete it, however you are correct in that you'd need to format to get rid of the emunand

up to you really, it'd just be one more step you're redoing
>>127654479

>>127654495
depends on the cia manager, dev menu can install over an old cia but fbi and bigbluemenu need you to remove the old one first IIRC
>>127654517
yes, correct, you could also use the homebrew menu version if you wanted
>>127654563
Yes that's it, sorry. I said Emunand Tool earlier and someone told me it was called Emunand Backup Tool. I'm not on Windows so I've never actually used it so I just took his word for it. Good luck.
>>127654596
Yep! Sounds like you've got a good understand of what's going on. If you get stuck just post again.
>>127654628
Not sure. It's probably you running out of space like the other two suggested. Never seen that error before, but I do use large SD cards. (64GB and 128GB in all my systems).
>>127654670
Yes, but Retroarch cores are also a lot faster than the homebrew menu emulators.
>>127654678
pastacfw is sysnand and installs fbi to sysnand, you're supposed to create emunand after that and then it'll copy everything from your sysnand over

Yes, make sure you've backed up everything on the SD first, though, that step wipes everything.

It'd be a lot more than just one step if I get rid of the emunand I have. If I remove the emunand, that would mean reinstalling every game and app I just put on there. So should I fucking leave it or not?

https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/

I was following this guide and got to

This time choose MenuHax. If you want to switch on your N3DS and have it boot into EmuNAND automatically, choose Type2.
I strongly recommend that, as it makes things way more convenient. If for whatever reason you don't want that, read the following explanation:
In short, Type1 will mean you have to hold a specific button to coldboot CtrBootManager and if you don't hold it, SysNAND will boot. Type2 is the opposite - CtrBootManager will coldboot if you do not hold a specific button and only boot SysNAND if you hold the button during boot. If you want to switch on your N3DS and automatically be in EmuNAND, use Type2. I recommend Type2 and I will write the following parts of the tutorial as if you chose Type2. If you want Type1, just keep in mind that you will have to hold your button every time you boot your device

Every time I try choose a type Menuhax_manager freezes and I need to force reboot, what the fuck did I do wrong
>>
>>127654937
Gotcha. I'm on my emunand right now so I'll just reset to go back to sysnand.

This is the part where I remove my SD card too right?

>>127655009
Don't worry anon, you're not alone in this battle :)

>>127655126
You should definitely format sysnand. Formatting emunand creates a copy of sysnand on your sd card, which you can dump and flash back to sysnand via gateway menu (no flashcart needed) or hardmod if you ever wanted to.

>>127655157
Yes; Use SaveDataFiler to decrypt your saves and re-import them on the higher firmware if they are giving you problems
>>
>>127655204
I already backed my files up a few minutes ago, I guess I'm all set now then right?
Here I go, wish me luck
>>
>>127654997
Yes! If you leave in the SD it would wipe that too. Take it out either before you turn the 3DS on or you can also take it out while in settings before you hit format.
>>127655034
If you're on an O3DS you can now update your emunand to latest firmware to get on the eshop.
>>127655112
You can get menuhax at any time. All that matters is that your NANDs are unlinked. To do this format sysnand with the SD card out.
>>127655123
Cakes is the best. RXTools has the most features. If you run BootNTR on top of Cakes you should get all the missing features.
>>127655126
I don't know what the fuck that guy is on about but he's not right! Format sysnand with SD card out and you'll still have all your games on emunand.

Open eShop once and close it. Then try again

Data Management is only unsafe after you've unlinked NANDs and have non-legit cias already installed. Otherwise, it's helpful for setting up /dbs/ for proper .cia installation

>>127655382
No, you just install .cia update files to your SD via FBI/DevMenu/BMM in the NAND you want to run the game from. Updating EmuNAND allows you to run games that require higher firmware, but people usually patch games past 9.5 for n3ds users anyway.

Go to sysnand and boot the homebrew launcher. Setup menuhax. Once you've made sure menuhax works, replace the boot.3dsx file for the homebrew launcher with the boot.3dsx file that comes with ctrbootmanager. This makes menuhax boot ctrbootmanager instead. To configure what's in the menu edit boot.cfg

If you want to continue being able to boot the homebrew launcher, instead of deleting the original boot.3dsx, rename it to boot_hb.3dsx

SysNAND has my legit games bought on eshop and such and it's using my NNID just the same way I always used to do. 9.2 of course.

emuNAND doesn't have anything other than what I install on .cia format. When I unlinked them both, that's the one I chose to format.

If I unlink my NNID from my SysNAND and link it to my emuNAND, could I just download all of my games again on emuNAND, so I don't have to use SysNAND for my legit shit?

3. Put files back on SD
4. Try formatting emunand again
5. Put files back on SD again
6. Use tinyformat, format sysnand.

That it? That cool?

Access to online in-game is different from accessing eShop. You can still connect online for some games without an NNID (it uses your system's address afaik) and you can update by installing .cia versions of game updates.

>Also worth noting is that the ribbon for the top screen also handles the 3D - if you complete the guide and find you are unable to turn the 3D effect off, you didn't insert the ribbon enough, as I had the problem and re-inserting the ribbon fully fixed it.

>>127656236
remember to clone the card instead of copy paste, you have an emunand to clone afterall.
You can just extract it and inject it onto the new one but fuck that, do it all at once.
unless you haven't made it yet then you will want to hold off copying shit over because it's gonna format to make one anyway, but after you can just copy>paste.

>>127656236

I would honestly recommend 64GB or 128GB. It doesn't take long to fill up a 32GB.

>>127656246
Nothing. Go get Emunand9 instead. Use this guide if you were using a guide that talked about Gateway.

by far the easiest fucking CFW to use and install is rxTools 2.6

lets you install unsigned CIAs on your emuNAND right away

menuhax that boots into CTMBootManager and then into rxtools automatically to load your emuNAND is the most convienent way to do it

Yes.. That's a limitation in the homebrew launcher. There's nothing you can do about that.

Usually you can update just fine but there's no harm in waiting and seeing if anyone ran into problems. I suppose something like the 9.5 emunand limit on the N3DS could suddenly affect everyone, but on 10.3 or something.

I had a problem with dumping SYSNAND just like you. I solved it by formatting the SD (make sure you backed up the content of your SD card first) via SD formatter, after format just dump contents on your SD again and you should be able to dump then.

>>127656967
The same downgrade guide applies to both O3DS and N3DS. N3DS just takes longer due to higher failrate. You can just copy/paste your shit over to the new card. The fancy stuff is just if you have an emunand already.
>>
>>127656983
Yeah I'm trying that right now.
A full format that is.
(Already had everything set up and backed up so far. So I only have to copy everything back over and try again)

It's not a very fast 32gb card admittedly, but I'm using my good SD cards in all my other 3DSs I've already hacked.
(I got two 4.5 o3DSs with emuNAND and 64gb microSDs in them, and a 9.2.0 N3DS with emuNAND with 128gb microSD in them. I'm pretty much only hacking this 3DSXL so I can use emuNAND in 10.3 for future proofing)

Cryptofixing is only for eshop-exclusive games for N3DS. The term you're looking for is firmware spoofing. But yes, it's easy as shit and fun making your own CIAs from .3ds files instead of depending on shit filesharing sites. There's no chance of bricking anything.
