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.

Reposting on the new thread. Plus I forgot my picture. Confused on which rxTools I should use. 2.6 or 3.0. Since you guys said to use 2.6 but the guide says 3.0.
Re posting All in 1 guide
use 3.0. Here's a link: https://my.mixtape.moe/vxcoit.zip
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.
So I'm trying to setup autoboot right now, which option do I select at menuhax?
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.
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.
first one. don't press any buttons, touch your touchscreen
you just have to keep retrying here. it took me over 100 tries last night to get past this. it will just start working randomly
what games you playin?
i started link between worlds, and i also installed MHX and ace attorney dual destinies
downloading mystery dungeon, majoras mask, bravely default and luigis mansion rn
What's the better firmware for a N3DS, Cakes or rxTools? I hear rxTools kind of works albeit with less functionality on a N3DS but by how limited are we talking about?
If I should use Cakes, is there a way to autoboot that or is that a feature of rxTools only?
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.
downloaded smtiv, AA trilogy,AA dual destinies, and paper jam.
playing paper jam right now. disappointed that AA trilogy just has english and jap despite the originals having more and the nintendo websites saying otherwise.
press B, rerun the installer. it will freeze sometimes and you'll have to reset then if pressing B doesn't do anything
pretty frustrating. i was about to give up but then i looked down and saw that green text
i'm using an n3ds though so i think that affects the success rate
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
Thanks guys, now I'm in the Menu and I have to Select A Boot Entry but if i select rxTools I get Err: Couldn't load arm9 payload...
>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.
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?
Okay anons, i'm at my wits end.
i keep getting "failed to get CIA file info!".
I'm currently at my inlaws so i have to use this piece of shit imac.
I've read that it's a common error for people doing it on mac.
So i tried every thing i've found in google.
The ftbrony trick doesn't work for me.
I'm lost. anyone got any ideas?
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.
Okay, I followed all the tut. Booting into latest firmware RX-E. How do I get Monster Hunter X on this thing?
I am so tired and exited, pls.
i'm getting this far and stuck here, any ideas?
an anon said to keep trying but, i ask politely if there is anything else i can do ?
been trying for 3+hrs.
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.
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.
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?
I've not done anything yet with my N3DS XL or looked into the whole downgrading process, but what would I need to do for when my new SD card arrives and I have CFW installed already? 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.
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.
After I install CtrBootManager, I can't get to HBC. Always this pink screen appear with rxtools, pasta and fucking HBC that always freeze. HALP!
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?
Sorry if it's somewhere already in the OP, but I'm tired as fuck. It's 7 AM, i should be asleep.
That's true, although it's more likely the iMac added extra files in the update folder.
Use terminal's dot_clean function to clean out that /updates/ folder, or transfer your update files with 3DSFTP
Been trying to get autoboot into emunand to work, using this guide: http://pastebin.com/6BBug6nD
When messing with the menuhax type 2 autoboot, the system just starts up regularly, while if i pick type 1 with autoboot, it will just start with the ctrmanager.
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
This stupid bullshit is disorganized as hell. There is no coherent guide anywhere, every single pastebin is like 1/3rd of a full guide.
How the fuck do I go from 9.4.0-21U to 9.2.0-20U, first off?
yeah but what version were you using through the browser? 2.6 or nightly/3.0
I had 2.6, removed all files associated with 2.6 from my sdcard, put the new rxtools build from pastebin.com/6BBug6nD aswell as added manually the data folder into the new rxtools folder on my sdcard because fuck trusting automatic installations through webbrowser
then I renamed the existing file, put the bootcfg and new boot.3dsx into the root of sdcard
Just to make sure, I had 10.3 EMUNAND version of O3DS XL
So, put the .CIA root and use rxTools or is there a folder to put it in. Im backing up my emunand at the moment.
I'm sorry. I really don't want to fuck up now.
I have a quite technical question for y'all; maybe one of you knows his shit.
I am wondering how it can be possible that - without changing anything - the downgrader either works or doesn't work?
Which factors are so dynamic that it fails?
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.
That's a shame. It's not really a dealbreaker for me but I'd really like to be able to use YouTube without having to resort to the nip app. Maybe I'll screw around with changing the region.
Install the AGB_FIRM to sysnand and emunand with Destination: NAND in FBI. Then install the GBA CIA itself to both sysnand and emunand.
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.
no, i updated from 2.6 to the new version and i had my save files and games kept in EMUNAND
well it worked perfectly for me, havent heard anyone say it bricks your system and its been posted every thread, people were just messing with you
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?
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)
Sorry for the probably stupid question, but I'm stuck and have no idea what to do.
I've downgraded to 9.2 on my O3DS, and am trying to go to http://go.gateway-3ds.com on it like the guides say to, but I can't use the browser because it says I need to update. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?
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.
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.
I've followed the OP, and I think this is the red zone its talking about, but it's freezing every time. I used both julian20 libkhax and tuxsh and they both look like this frozen. I have O3DS on 10.1 and I'm doing this through menuhax. I have the O3DS 9.2 upgrade in my root folder.
Whats the fucking point of the flowchart telling you to use 2.6 if http://pastebin.com/U6pGq6ih wants you to use nightly?
Hold L. It's retarded, I know.
Update to 10.3 and try again. Personally I used TuxSH, and so did many, many other O3DS users.
No, that's good, since you'll want FBI there to install GBA games.
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.
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.
>from emunand9 start by dumping sysnand to nand.bin
>after that press select to eject sd card, pull it out while the 3ds is still going
>back up shit on your computer
>put it back in
>press b twice, then select the top option, full emunand setup or whatever
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?
Exploit that allowed downgrading to a version that can install custom firmware for piracy, discovered to be theoretically usable on every single 3DS console currently.
Look in the fucking OP pastebins? kys my man
>Suit yourself. Either that, or try unlinking the nands again through formatting system memory on sysnand. Might work.
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
>Getting that tiny window right is unreliable by nature, since we're racing against the system processes.
So, this means if we ever get something stable, we probably will have to try several times anyway?
It's a bit unfortunate to be honest. The good thing about skipping CTRmanager is that there's no issue with that, if you ever need CTRmanager back you just have to change back that .cfg file.
that guide sucks

Fuuuck me. At least my legit carts still work on Emunand. I guess it's MH4U and Smash until then.
Guys, I've done everything right in a 8gb micro sd, got it running CFW, rxMode, autobooting, you name it, I'm playing stuff.
Today I'm getting a 32gb card.
Can I just copy everything from the first and still work or do I have to repeat some process first?
A guide for emunand9tool would be nice as the flowchart only explains the gateway method
>So, this means if we ever get something stable, we probably will have to try several times anyway?
Yes, in fact I'd even say that we'll never get something more stable that Julian's fork and it'll always take a million tries.
I mean, can't I just continue this guide since this is basically the last step outside of unlinking nands and coldbooting anyways?
I just want to be absolutely sure that "Install FBI over Health&Safety App" is what the guide actually wants me to do.
I'm not bothered enough to try to get homebrew running on my already downgraded 9.2 system
this guide covers it very well
most of the steps should be the same for the o3ds too
You can copy everything but the EmuNand. You'll gonna transfer the emunand over with a program like Emutools9.
Can an anon verify what I said was correct? Don't wanna confuse anyone.
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)
So I have a N3DS with version 10.20-28E and I don't wanna miss this oppertunity but I fear I could brick my console. Can I just wait for a more stable release for N3DS or do I need to do this asap and get 9.2?
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?
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
Here's a guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
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
Well, I might as well give it a go.
Should I just use the browser exploit to load HB menu like I did before I downgraded?
I haven't looked yet but I'm assuming just google searching 'pasta 3ds' and 'fbi.3dsx' and 'fbi.cia 3ds' on google would lead me to the proper files right?
got it to boot into emunand after i installed FBI on emunand health &safety (RX3D 9.2 blah blah)
launch health and safety but it's just the normal health and safety, where'd i fuck up?
there is something im wondering, if you download a newer version of a cia (like the mh x or smash) and you install it over the old one, do you have to remove the old one first and can you keep the game save?
Guys what do I do? I tried using bigbluemenu too but it says the cia is invalid pls help I don't know if i can take trying much longer
Yeah, browser exploit should work fine, you could also install menuhax again.
Google searching them should work, also >>127652692 linked to a guide that has links to all the downloads you'll need
what is the difference between launch.rxtools.net and dukesrg.github.io/?rxTools/sys/code.bin?
Start over I think I found bess guido.
This is boss: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
Edit your CtrBootManager.cfg to load the correct HBC boot.3dsx file
I can't remember what pink screen was, but try deleting your payloads if you have any.
EmuNAND Backup Tool actually, but yeah.
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.
Get the dbs.zip from https://gbatemp.net/attachments/dbs-zip.24402/ and enter Data Management for the first time to initialize it.
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.
Er whoops. Enter "sdmc:/Nintendo 3DS/" then the folder after that, then the folder after that, and put /dbs/ in there.
If you're not sure which folder in /Nintendo 3DS/ you should be using, move your Nintendo 3DS folder somewhere else and find out which folder your 3DS is generating when you put the card in on the home menu.
I'm at this point and have no idea what I should be doing
I have my backup nand
I have installed rxtools after the format and backup
I'm able to boot into Emunand (RX3D 9.2)
but what the hell do I do from here
>install config.cia with bbm
>icon won't show up
>new icon, is completely black
>decide to open it anyway
>been stuck here for several minutes
What to do?
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:
>ctrboot gets me the "rxtools" or "homebrew" options
>do nothing for 3 seconds or click rxtools
>boots me into rx9.2 emunand
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.
just follow the n3ds guide, most of the stuff is exactly the same
if you get to a part that's confusing or different for the o3ds just come back and ask and I'll help you
Can you install .cia files with FBI now? if yes then the only thing left to do is to unlink nands and setup ctrbootmanager
to do that go to sysnand with the sd card removed and then do system format, once that's done put your sd back in, setup menuhax on sysnand, download ctrbootmanager, and boom you can turn on your 3ds and boot right into emunand from a menu
SNShax isn't being work on by anyone.
it's a meme made by a little kid (JustPingo) who can't actually code at all. Some people tried to use the tool he released (that someone else made for him) and it bricked a bucnh of 3DSs.
I ran into that a couple times. Just hard power off.
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.
>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.
Okay so I'm being asked for a slot0x25keyX.bin and I know I'm looking for a hex code to paste into a blank file.
Problem is, the website showing said hex code has gone down. So uh, what the fuck do I do now?
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.
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
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.
sysupdater + 9.5 cia update pack
if you've downgraded before you should be familiar with the process
How do I install FBI if I'm already loaded into RXtools?
I have tried the injector to install over the safety app, but when I try to see what TMD I have, it says the info is missing.
I have FBI.cia at the base of my sd
I have a N3DS, but I'm not sure what to do.
Is your SD card locked? Did you put the /dbs/ folder in the right spot? (Should be sitting next to /extdata/)
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.
How much free space do I need for emunand? I only have 300mb free on the standard sd that came with 3ds
I formated my EMUNAND
so I entered EMUNAND, went to homebrew channel, entered tinyformat, formated EMUNAND.
It threw me back into sysnand, everything was normal there. I entered emunand again through rxtools and it then wanted me to setup like it was brand new.
After setting it up, voila, unlinked.
God who let all the fucking retards in. Get back to /v/ and ask your retarded questions there.
Get the fuck off my general and stop asking shitty questions like "Which CFW should I install?"
It's not like we have guides in the OP for nothing...
>people keep recommending the fucking image flowchart even though it doesn't even say how to install cia
Ironfall requires 9.5 or higher to hax
Use browserhax and install homemenuhax with it.
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
Sorry I wasn't quite sure what you were asking so I didn't reply. You don't need two SD cards for anything.
Yes that all sounds correct.
Every time you open config.cia? I actually also have problems with it. I was gonna see if I could change my language with it on my JP N3DS and it just crashed when I chose something.
It might be something that's bugged for people who downgraded or something.
I'll just give you the file. I thought that step was annoying and I think I just found a premade file myself.
You might have to rename it, this site fucks up filenames.
Get the .3dsx version of FBI and run it from the homebrew menu and then use it to install fbi.cia.
they probably both require newer firmware
Wait a second, did you downgrade at all? You don't have permission to install non-legit .cias unless you are in a CFW.
Change EmuNAND's theme color/brightness/whatever.
FBI injection isn't always consistent. It can be a walk in the park for some but a pain in the ass for others.
Forgive my stupidity.
I have everything set up so I boot into menuhax, which starts ctrbootmanager, which starts rxtools. How do I install a custom theme in emunand, not sysnand, without losing menuhax?
I think I have a faulty SD card, but i want to use it for something else non 3ds related, how do I get rid of the emunand partition? formatting does nothing at al?
also would a 2gb SD card be enough? I don't have anything bigger right now
Simple. I got two SD cards.
8gb and 32gb.
In the first one I did everything and have rxMode playing vidya, emunand and everything.
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.
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.
>Follow imgur guide
>Install FBI on H&S for emunand
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.
Update, my boot.3dsx is now CTRBootManager
I can boot either HBL or rxtools.
When I load homebrew channel from there and load fbi it works, but I cannot install cias (errors)
This leads me to believe its loading within sysNand.
tinyformat sounds like the best method, I personally did it the old way but I'm gonna try to use tinyformat in the future
1GB for O3DS and 2GB for N3DS
Monster Hunter is pretty big. Look at pic related for an idea.
>do i need to do the whole generate xorpads thing now to convert to cia
Yeah, I think you still have to. I've also heard of something called Simple CIA Converter, but not sure if it still needs xorpads or not.
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.
Sysnand is better since you'll be spending all your time in emunand.
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.
>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.
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.
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.
Bumping this request. >>127650601
search "3ds" on /h/, that's about as good as it gets
If you installed an off-region game that isn't regionfree, then yes, you need to do so
Wipe everything and start over. At least you know what to do now.
>Wipe everything and start over. At least you know what to do now.
Fine, fuck it all. Start over from where, exactly? It's not like I need to upgrade SysNAND back to 10.3, right?
A lot of people are having trouble with that and there are better ways now anyway.
>get pastacfw, fbi.3dsx, fbi.cia
>launch homebrew menu
>launch homebrew menu again
Yes, HBL directly from coldboot is sysNAND.
CTRL+F this thread for "/dbs/" and download the .zip from gbatemp (too lazy to find it myself earlier in the thread), put it in "Nintendo 3DS/<garbled id#>/<garbled id#>/" right next to /extdata/ and let Data Management in system settings reset it. Do this for both nands (and both Nintendo 3DS id folders)
alright guys please hear my plea. so i downgraded fine, installed menuhax dumped my sysnand to .bin and backed it up. now how do i install rx tools and fbi with menu hax? or do i have to use the browser? also how do i tell if im installing to sysnand or emunand? sorry please and thank you!
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.
>still trying to downgrade
>failed to get .cia information!
>suddenly I'm at 3ds download play
is this progress or do I keep resetting?
>Just do it normally. If you're unlinked then menuhax isn't installed on emunand.
So, I just install the CHMM2 cia, use that to install custom themes for my emunand, and everything will be cool?
>extract emunand from small SD card to emunand.bin with ^
>put your big SD card in PC
>use the tool to format new emunand, selecting emunand.bin

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?
Format it completely to be safe.
Make sure to use the CHMM2 build from >>127651330 if you're on O3DS, since some have reported the latest 2.2 build on Rinne's site to fuck their shit up.
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.
Wait, is pastacfw emunand or sysnand? Which NAND does that method install fbi.cia to?
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
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
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:
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
Otherwise VC injection is literally running the same hardware as a real GBA: I wouldn't even call it emulation
>Format it completely to be safe.
Which means I'll need to create a new emunand with Gateway, yes?
Just want to be sure I have all the steps planned out ahead of me. Don't want to miss anything, trip over a theme, and fuck EVERYTHING up again.
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
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
yeah that means you're on 9.9 or higher, I'm afraid you'll have to start over
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
keep resetting senpai, I'm not sure how the hell you managed to land in download play..
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
yes, correct, you could also use the homebrew menu version if you wanted
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.
Yep! Sounds like you've got a good understand of what's going on. If you get stuck just post again.
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).
Yes, but Retroarch cores are also a lot faster than the homebrew menu emulators.
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
whose build is that? I don't think I was aware of it.
I´m at the step where I have to go to launch.rxTools in the browser, but it just crashes me to the homecreen. Do I have to use another pair of fbi_inject files in the eur folder?
Thanks, dude. I just woke up so I'm out of the loop.
Downloadan at the speed of fast.
>I'm not sure how the hell you managed to land in download play..
Yeah I'm really confused over that too. What the fuck.
>whose build is that? I don't think I was aware of it.
The same guy, the other guy than tux, he just made a newer build I got some IRC help. As far as I know it IS posted on forums too but in like page 90 or something, not sure tho.
yes, you're supposed to do this before you create emunand and then it gets copied over, I'm really just advising people do as this guide says:
Yes, make sure you've backed up everything on the SD first, though, that step wipes everything.
Kind of. You'll definitely want to format the sysnand. I'll leave it to someone else to explain why. I need to take a break from posting.
You're pretty much guaranteed 60fps, since this one uses the DS core of the 3DS to emulate a GBA like a regular DS would. So yes, barring netplay, it's the best GBA emulator you can get.
Correct. I did exactly the same thing as you did. Twice. Not fun, but you just have to do exactly what you did to get here, except replace the CHMM2 cia with the one provided here.
>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
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?
Someone please help
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
It fucking finally worked after like 80 something tries.
I think it was just coincidence but when this screen loaded before pressing anything, i turned off the wifi then turned it on again waited 5 secs or so. Then pressed Y to downgrade.
I hope it helps someone.
Install FBI to sysnand via HBL while in pasta CFW and re-format emunand so it copies over.
emuNAND. The app in will always assume the NAND you ran it in (unless it knows how to switch between the two, then it will most likely say which one)
Huh, I don't really wanna lose them.
The other guy told me to format sysnand, but if i wanna keep those then like I should just go ahead and format on my emunand?
On my emunand I don't need to do the whole 'remove SD card' thing right?
Ok. So what's the best way to keep installation on sysnand clear. FBI doesn't show file names, only titleids, should I write down them or something if I want to delete them later? I've heard you can't use data management from system setting on sysnand.
From the autoboot rxTools for retards guide:
>5) once its done go into settings and choose "quick boot" and check it. now quit and this time run browserhax to install menuhax 2.1
Could someone explain exactly how I am supposed to install menuhax? I cant help but feel that whoever wrote this skipped ahead a little and has left me lost, i find nothing referring to it in the rxTools menu.
ok, backup everything you have on your sd card, then go into emunand and format and don't remove your sd card, after formatting, put everything back on your sd card and all your games should be in your sysnand
I am using FBI/BigBlueMenu
I want to install custom themes on emunand
I did , but lost my ability to boot to the homebrew menu via holding L.
Anyway I could solve this?
At this point if theres no solution I could change the boot option to type (2 I think?) where the boot commands are inverted, since I'll be playing on emunand 99% of the time.

I'm sorry. It's been a long night. And to be finally situated felt amazing. Until the moment where I fucked up installing a theme, and that apparently jeopardized everything. I'm incredibly frustrated, frantically trying to get answers in this clusterfuck of a thread at 8:30AM, when I should've been asleep SEVERAL hours ago.
Don't worry anon, you're not alone in this battle :)
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.
Yes; Use SaveDataFiler to decrypt your saves and re-import them on the higher firmware if they are giving you problems
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.
If you're on an O3DS you can now update your emunand to latest firmware to get on the eshop.
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.
Cakes is the best. RXTools has the most features. If you run BootNTR on top of Cakes you should get all the missing features.
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.
If you used CHMM2, it's a problem on O3DS with certain CFW builds where it jumbles up sysnand and emunand themes, among other fun stuff that breaks unlinking. Start over and use the build linked here instead >>127651330
I'm trying to update emunand to 9.5 so I grabbed the sysupdater.cia zip but I get errors
Where should I get the sysupdater.cia for updating emunand to 9.5?
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
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.
>Cakes is the best. RXTools has the most features. If you run BootNTR on top of Cakes you should get all the missing features.
Can you elaborate? I am on RXtools as some guides say but I am bothered by the fact it crashes if I try to open Friends list or Miiverse.
on N3DS myself. Or shall I just continue with RXtools. I really do not NEED to access my friends list but it is a bother given I still do have my old friends and stuff.
I believe one of the pastebin guides links to it. Yeah, this one.
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

Cakes is a fucking dev CFW and unless you know very much what you're doing, setting it up is painful. It can't even do much.
Tried injecting FBI to sysNand via https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-inject-any-app-into-health-safety-o3ds-n3ds-cfw-only.402236/
No dice. With header creates an unlaunchable title, without header makes H&S disappear.
If it makes a difference, I used the most recent FBI cia via https://github.com/Steveice10/FBI/releases
I have unlinked my NANDs.
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?
Yes. Make sure you did backup your emunand and not just your sysnand, though. Emunand9 can back it up to an emunand.bin.
badges were added in 9.3
You can have both installed and choose between them with ctrbootmanager! Just leave your rxtools as-is and go read up on how to setup Cakes. You already have an emunand so it should only take putting the right files on there and booting it. Good luck!

I'm having problem after downgrading my O3DS.
I (think) did everything in the correct order, infact I did not saw any massage error, but now (firmware 9.2) I can't setup anymore the Browserhax. When I load up the page it just load a blank page and nothing happens, what should I do?
Halp, I don´t want it do be for naught after coming so far
Well yeah i'm fucked
Is there any way I can start over? I still have backups of old nands and stuff.
I can pretend that I softbricked my ds or something.
How do I start over?
Use the method from this guide instead: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
basically boot homebrew loader, then pasta, then homebrew loader again, and run fbi from the homebrew loader to install fbi.cia
you just need a cryptofixed CIA to get around that
I would recommend just remaking emunand so that it's a copy of your sysnand and then formatting sysnand to unlink again
you kinda did the opposite of what you were supposed to but it's not a big deal
I got both.
I'm going to backup at every major step, so all I need to do is inject the last working one, right?
Whoa, are you sure you're not confusing your sysNAND with your emuNAND?
My games went all only to emuNAND after I unlinked it.
I FUCKING DID IT
I HAVE MY OLD SYSNAND INJECTED INTO MY NEW EMUNAND
I HAVE AUTOBOOT INTO EMUNAND
Apart from the occasional crash and a bit of slow loading (probably because I'm using a microSD converter) it's like I never switched at all.
Feels so fucking good, man.
Now all I need is a reliable site to grab downloaded games/DLC, and maybe a new banner for Menuhax.
>Installing Animal Crossing New Leaf 3%
holy shit I did it
It's okay to constantly go into emunand through launch.rxtools right or do I need to setup something else?
I don't want to fuck it up now
that's just a bug in rxtools that can be fixed by opening and closing your 3ds
sounds like you fucked up part of the setup, backtrack or start over if you have to
the page is not blank, zoom in on the upper left and there's a tiny slider, click on it on the right side somewhere
Is accessing to online a separate thing on its own or is it links to NNID or some service like PSN? I don't know how to access to Nintendo online thing since accessing to eshop requires latest firmware thingie.
launch will do just fine, consider finding alternatives to put in your bookmarks though, stability and such.
Also recommend simply never turning it off.
If your firmware is high enough consider menuhax.
>Now all I need is a reliable site to grab downloaded games/DLC, and maybe a new banner for Menuhax.
It's not all that reliable or great, but 3dsiso is what most of us are putting up with.
There's also that page on the wikia where anons are supposedly putting download links now. I didn't look at it yet.
Nope, not confusing it. When I used Tinyformat I formatted the emunand thinking that doing so with the Sysnand was the risky thing. Seems I was wrong.
Well, I will do that. So basically:
1. Backup SD card again
2. Format it on windows, remove that partition
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?
rxtools installation maybe, not sure what guide you used so I don't even know where you could've fucked up. If you feel like typing out everything you did from the start I can try to help you.
What's so weird about that? Most people just close it and leave it charging in sleep mode from what I've seen. Streetpasses and stuff more that way, too.
>That it? That cool?
Yeah, that should be fine.
@Inject: Yeah, pretty much.
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.
why can't you do that? it's not impossible to do or something
https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nintendo+3DS+Volume+Switch+Replacement/6012 also mentions some issues which might be related to the 3D slider in the comments
>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.
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.
>Gonna go to bestbuy and by 32gig sd card and transfer this shit over later today
I would honestly recommend 64GB or 128GB. It doesn't take long to fill up a 32GB.
Nothing. Go get Emunand9 instead. Use this guide if you were using a guide that talked about Gateway.
you can get a homebrew launcher cia which, if ctrbootmanager is installed, will let you access ctrbootmanager without restarting
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
First time doing this...
Is it save to close? or does sth happen?
>you can get a homebrew launcher cia which, if ctrbootmanager is installed, will let you access ctrbootmanager without restarting
I know, but then you have to reboot to access the home menu again.
>trying to install everything all day
>had many problems
>finally get it working
>install rxTools coldboot
>set for life
Keep trying anons! You can do it!
but the guide says
>Avoid putting your device to sleep while on EmuNAND and being connected to the internet. This can initiate an update download in the background, resulting in constant messages that ask you to update which of course you do not want to do on N3DS.
nice, rxTools just worked after trying a few times. Thanks for ur help though
>remember to clone the card instead of copy paste
Wait, I don't get it.
Where is my emunand stored after all?
Why would this make any diference?
Isn't my emunand that big NAND file on the root of my sd?
i kept getting errors from the hardware.bin file, none of the ones i tried were working
then i try 2.6 and it works first fucking try
>>I would honestly recommend 64GB or 128GB. It doesn't take long to fill up a 32GB.
wait, i thought FAT32 couldn't go past 32GB?
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.
fuck i think i may be retarded
Im on o3ds sysnand 9.2 emunand 10.3 rxTool2.6
I have games i bought on sysnand
and i installed some games on emunand
now I want to unlink them, is there a way to keep everything withount reinstalling it all
if so which one should be formated sys or emu
https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-cakesfw.391200/ This one yeah?
Noticed it indeed just boots with a 3dsx so I took it out from the folder slap it in root of my card with rest of the stuff and added line to booting the 3dsx in boot.cfg
Has anybody attempted to use Decrypt9 to cryptofix CIAs? If so, what did you do and did you have any success? I'm planning on just booting HBL, launching Decrypt9, and targeting the CIAs I need, but I'm nervous about it.
>he doesn't play animal crossing
I'll admit I haven't touched it in months but it's top fucking comfy and I even played it with a bunch of other guys. Where's this vagina meme from? Girls suck at video games anyway.
Just setup tubehax dns on emunand right away and that shouldn't be a problem.
(Rxmenu is accessed when holding L [was it R?] while RxToolsCFW is trying to boot up)
>tfw you managed to downgrade your o3DS, but backing up the sysNAND doesn't work.
The tool is acting real screwy. Apparently I have thousands of terabytes out of 0mb available.
Won't let me dump my sysNAND.
Oh! I think iI got it now, that nand must be my sysNAND backup before formatting to unlink it.
So the way I backup it is with a tool like that one >>127656382, am I right?
So a fool proof plan is to just clone my sd, and if anything goes wrong, I just clone it back to the sd, right?
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.

congrats you learned basic emunand knowledge

Cakes is made a lot better and cleaner, but it's very new so it doesn't yet have all the features of rxtools implemented. That pretty much sums it up. For region-free on Cakes you can use NTR on top of it.
he used the word literal, why would you not take it literally? was I supposed to assume he was retarded?
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.
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)
Thanks guys, I was really confused with this.
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.
Wait, seriously? I thought you had to keep it in because otherwise the game couldn't be read. Man, that's gonna save a lot of space.
>was I supposed to assume he was retarded?
That's something you need to always assume, on 4chan.
How stable is a sysnand update via sysupdater these days?
I'm contemplating jumping from 4.5 to 9.2 purely for autoboot.
I'd probably need to inject sysupdater over the h&s app as well since i hear using rxtools sysnand boot with this is a very bad idea.
