-NOTICE: January 11th http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/01/extended_nintendo_network_maintenance_on_the_way
-Menu/Iron/Browserhax all work on the latest firmware again! DON'T DELAY in getting Homebrew.
-memchunkhax2 is a kernel11 exploit that allows downgrading to 9.2, and works on every firmware including 10.3.
>Is downgrading safe?
Things are going pretty well. Some bricks are simply people using the wrong firmware. Be sure you understand the risks.
-A libkhax variant of mch2 sysUpdater compiled by julian20 implements the safest settings so far
-Getting the downgrader to even start can require many tries, especially with New 3DS. Opening and closing an FTP app supposedly helps.
-Blank screen can be caused by Menuhax. Try pulling your SD card if you get it. Boot, reinsert, change theme.
-Apparently, the Wii U and 3DS use the same fucking keys... LOL
-Hykem is being weird.
-Linux can run on PS4. Thanks /g/.
-Cobra Black Fin was announced. http://wololo.net/2015/12/07/cobra-black-fin-an-upcoming-dongle-to-play-ps-vita-isos/
-A Vita update got released, you might not want to update since it fixes the email exploit.
What CFW do you prefer?
- rxTools 2.6
- rxTools 3.0 alpha
- Pasta CFW (jk)
- Reinand (?)
Is there a way to install a custom theme on an unlinked emunand without breaking menuhax?
I'm doing this despite a constant fear of bricking. I've followed all the steps in the guides so far but holding L still doesn't boot homebrew. What could be causing this?
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.
I'm about to unlink NANDs. Should I be doing this within emunand or sysnand?
Someone said having emunand on shuffle might help. I don't think it'd be reliable though.
that girl's a megaqt.
rxTools nightly build. (no idea which build just downloaded it from some tutorial.)
well somehow I downloaded a faulty rxTools nightly with fucked up online play (got a weird "Failed to connect to partner's device" error)
someone using 3.0 alpha or latest nightly can confirm that it got no problems when online playing?
>rebooted after waiting a minute
>tried again after checking that sdcard looked okay
>after 30 seconds Preparing Home Menu
>everything is there including my old custom theme from before downgrading, my badges, and the eshop games and cia applications
well okay. I can live with this.
Can I install cias in sysNAND?
I'm asking because currently I don't have enough space for an emuNAND, and probably the most I can install is one game in this 2 gb SD. I'm buying a bigger one next week.
Can confirm it's just you/your partner and has nothing to do with rxTools.
Why are you so quick to blame it? TFH uses shitty P2P so you're at the mercy of your partners to connect.
plzrespond. I don't understand if you should have the 3dsx file or the smdh too?
This may help anyone downgrading, going to repost here too.
First, this may take 100, 200 many tries. Many hours trying. And if something doesn't go right, don't panic.
If Y doesn't respond - Keep smashing Y
Cia not found - Press B
Black screen - Press R L DOWN B (keep presing until you are on the home screen)
Frozen screen - (no button works) - wait 5 minutes, power off, if the lights still on, power off again (hold it)
It's scary but never give up.
Yes, inject FBI using rxtools into your sysnand, and you can install a cia into your sysnand.
Any game you want would have to be less than ~800MB though, otherwise there won't be enough roomon your sd card
Yeah, take the original NAND.bin and put on root
Then access gateway menu and hold up when pressing A on downgrade to restore nand to sysnand. No need to buy the gateway red card to do this
>I'm not going to check the guide to find out, so I'll ask you. Did the guide make you unlink your NANDs?
I had already unlinked them before and got all my games onto emuNand. They disappeared after I went through the fixing the eshop stuff.
But I managed to fix it by just lots of googling. Found some info on gbatemp about renaming the old ID folder in /Nintendo 3DS/ with the name of the new folder. Now I've got my games and saves back on emunand, and can access eshop. So I'm all set. Thanks for taking the time to reply to my question though.
thanks for the heads up. I didn't install any cias (but I launched FBI to check if it's working), just updated emunand to 10.3 and tried to enter the eshop
it recognized the NNID I already had in this 3DS, but I got "an error has occured, please try again later"
not sure if I'm fucked
So I'm on EmuNAND with rxTools, everything is fine. I've heard some games need higher firmware to run though. Wouldn't I lose rxtools and FBI if I updated? Is there a different way to update or do I just use the system settings? O3DS for the record.
I understand .cias are safe to play online. Is there anything I need to do once I'm on 9.2 to play online? Do I need to go to 9.5? Do I need to install anything extra?
never mind I found a tutorial that seems to explain my case:
5) Great now you have separated your sysnand from emunand but there is a problem. When you try to go into eshop from emunand you get an error. This happens because after format NNID info on sysnand are lost so you need to go back on sysnand and enter your existing NNID info on your 3ds. Do not create a new NNID. PUT EXISTING NNID ON SYSNAND NNID. After that you can get into eshop on emunand normally
6) Last step is to boot gateway mode, backup sysnand again and downgrade your 3ds via the gateway downgrade option. After doing so you end up with a 4.5fw sysnand (for EU 3ds, I don't know about US or Japan etc) and your emunand as you left it. Eshop works normally on your emunand and sysnand is separated from emunand.
not too sure about this step 6 tho, will try just 5 first
I've been enjoying pirated and other region games for a few days now, everything is good but I haven't been able to test out streetpass with any games yet as I've been visiting familly for a few weeks. Is there anything you have to do to get streetpass stuff working with cia games or should it all be good from the start?
The reason I ask is because I launched streetpass plaza to clear some streetpasses I had gotten before doing all the downgrade stuff and it worked fine other than giving me a notification that it couldn't do something with spotpass data on the SD card. I don't care about spotpass at all, but will it cause issues with streetpassing in games?
I haven't used my 3DS much in the past year I got it, so I don't know what all this spotpass nonsense really does.
Using the "old store version" to download v1 of ironfall put the present box in my 3ds desktop but it isn't downloading.
Did it stop working/has it been fixed by nintendo?
Or should I assume it's just too much traffic?
Following this gude: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>First off we'll need signature patching so we can run FBI. To do this, launch Pasta. It'll kick you back to your home menu, only this time with signature patching, allowing you to install whatever you want. If Pasta doesn't work, try MiniPasta. Now return to the homebrew menu via the browserhax URL again. Once here, launch FBI. Now that you're in FBI you can install .cia files. Go to where you save fbi.cia and install it. This will allow you to access FBI from your home menu instead of the homebrew launcher.
My question is, after launching Pasta or miniPasta and it kicks you back to the front, do I need to go back to homebrew menu without powering the system off? Can't figure out if that's possible with menuhax, and browserhax fails every time I try it after being kicked back.
If this does not matter, only thing that does matter is that fbi.cia is not installing no matter what I do.
>Description: DESCRIPTION_INVALID_SIGNATURE (0x6a)
No idea what to do from here, I'm pretty sure I have everything I need so far.
>downgraded first try
>installed cfw first try

>but tfw you only have the stock 4GB SD card
Well fuck, I guess I'm stuck with the ambassador games until I get a new SD card.
Any small retail games or dsiware you'd recommend?
Go into your /Nintendo 3DS/ folder on the root of your SD card. You should have a Private folder and then most likely two other folders with long IDs.
In my case one was 13gigs because it was my older folder that had all my games. When I fixed the eshop it created a second, new folder, that was only 99mb. I copied both folder names then renamed the newer 99mb one something like "newID". Then I renamed the 13gig one with the original folder name of the 99mb folder. Booted up my 3DS and all my games were back and I had eshop access still.
i'm having some trouble booting into gateway on my n3ds, using oot3d. im on 9.2.0 and have the correct savefile on my gamecard
when i boot in, the top screen turns black and the bottom screen turns white
will emunand work perfectly at 10.3? I see reports that N3DS can only do 9.5 right now? All the info is scattered and fucking confusing and all I want to do is maybe just maybe hunt with some buds.
So, I am trying to downgrade my o3ds from 9.8 to 9.2, everything went fine until the end, but now is frozen in "Updates installed, rebooting in ten seconds".
What should I do?
By the way what happened to these sluts? And why do they have so many themes on JP?

Hey folks, small simple questions here.
The files above are in my 3ds folder and the files below are in the root.
Since I know a few of the homebrew apps I use can be replaced with a .cia now, can I remove everything but the installer and menuhax?
I won't need sysupdate and the updates folder anymore since I'm on a O3DS (right?)
However, I'm having trouble figuring out which files in the root I no longer need.
Even then I install the emulator via .cia I will need the roms in the root, correct?
My last few questions are simple too:
I installed menuhax before my downgrade, will it need to be reinstalled?
Once I upgrade to 10.3 via emuand, will I still be able to access my NNID and miiverse or is it not safe to log in? I can still access the eshop so I should be able to right?
Can anyone help me with this, I'm a bit stumped.
>Copy everything to the SD card. There are three files that end in .here (two are in /cakes/ ) you will need to copy the actual files so they are next to the .here files.
So I threw the .bin and .nds files into the sd card, but I'm confused by this last bit, am I only putting the .here files in?
>load my 3DS with a few dozen games
>can't figure out what to play
>launch something, get 5 minutes in
>maybe I should play X instead...
Just about to install Gunvolt's Update when...
Yeah, I made sure both were USA.
so it seems people are using this tutorial to fix error 022 on eshop with emunand
but wouldn't it work the same if I just went to sysnand (which was formatted) and set up the same NNID that is already on emunand? Did anyone try that?
A couple days ago I was here on /hbg/ asking about DLC that wasn't working
I had FE:A installed but the game didn't recognize the DLC I installed both via FBI and BigBlueMenu
I think I found the solution to that: For DLC to work on your system, you need to have the game and the DLC in the same region as your 3DS. I have an EU o3DS running US FE:A and the US DLC and it didn't work. Tried downloading the EU version and EU DLC and it worked perfectly (installed via BigBlueMenu, not sure about FBI, some people say it's better than FBI for DLC)
Anyone has had any similar experiences? Any NA game runs fine on my system, but the DLC so far didn't work, I should try that with more games
I think that shouldn't be a problem unless you are that guy from a couple days ago that was having the same problem as me with Taiko no Tatsujin, so installing JP DLC might be hard right now
Pic somewhat related, my 3DS homescreen with two FE:A copies
If you format Sysnand you lose everything forever. If you have a bunch of stuff off the eShop and want to someday return to normal and pretend CFW never happened just unlink the Emunand. If you have a specific 3DS exclusively for piracy then unlink the Sysnand.
This 10 minute bullshit needs to go.
I walked a couple friends through it and they were fine powering off 10-20 seconds after it failed to reboot (so 20-30 overall). If it's done, it's done. Waiting ain't going to make it more done.
>literally cucking nintendo.jpg
I pulled the battery on my N3DS at every lock. Sped up the process significantly with no damage. Only 4 hours spent brute forcing the exploit!
Call it reckless but if I waited 10 minutes every retry I'd still be nowhere.
guys I installed a gba game on FBI in sysNAND by accidenet
How do I delete them now?
Uh I think I installed them in both
They appear as black boxes in sysnand and they appear and quickly disappear in NAND
Did I fuck up bigtime?
After using tinyformat to format the emunand and unlink the emu and sysnands can I use emunand9 to clone the sysnand to the emunand and have them be basically the same but still unlinked?
>Get everything ready for pirating
>go to look for games
>realize I already bought and played every 3DS game I was interested in
At least I have it ready for Fates.
Can't wait to go through all this shit again when the Wii U exploit drops.
Using a N3DS with what I believe is Julian's latest sysupdate
is it safe to reboot here and try again?
Is it safe to download dlc while in emunand? I'm trying to play MonHun but I'm scared that i'll fuck something up.
I've waited 10 minutes and it warked! Thanks guys, I'll get into this CFW stuff.
I know the answer but I don't like the picture you posted so I'm not going to answer.
Also you're a cuck for waiting so long and hoping to piggyback off others who already blazed the trail on n3ds
>Rxtools freezes at black screen now
Please help, MHX is almost within my grasp.
Hey, so. I can't seem to access the eshop despite everything. I've got the spoofer and everything running as told but whenever I open up Eshop, it loads up my name and what not for a few seconds before telling me that I need to update to use eshop, EVEN with the spoofer.
sysUpdater 0.4.2b keeps freezing on me before i even hit downgrade.
what do i do?
SocketPunch works fine, it's about the only method currently to transfer over network. It's also slow as shit anyway, because of the internal limitations of the 3DS hardware.
Cakes and rxTools work fine on both versions. I personally like rxtools more on o3ds because it boots more successfully, and vice versa for cakes. NTR is like... a shell process that you run on top of homemenu, so it's not necessarily a "CFW" in the traditional sense. You run the boot program, and then you get a nice menu that you can access with X+Y in any game or on the home menu. So you can run RX+NTR or Cakes+NTR.
I have a N3DS XL (9.9E I think)
Since the whole downgrading thing doesn't seem to be stable yet, I'll wait until I can do it without hoping one of the steps work on the 50th attempt.
Can you play pirated 3DS games with a cFW and what SD card size would be recommendable once piracy works?
Are there any special steps to installing games and DLC/updates from other regions using rxTools and FBI?
It's perfectly stable if you just follow instructions. You want at least 32gigs probably.
I'm using the retard's autoboot guide and I completed up to step 4. RxTools 3.0 has been run for the first time, my emuNAND has a different homescreen layout from sysNAND, etc.
Now I'm trying to run browserhax on sysNAND so I can install menuhax and eventually get autoboot up, but every time I try to launch browserhax it says an error has occurred. I've cleared my SD card of any .bin payloads and retried many times, but sysNAND still refuses to install browserhax (on 9.2.0).
Is browser/menuhax supposed to be installed on emuNAND instead? I feel like I've hit a wall here.
Buy it site-to-store if the store doesn't have what you're looking for. They deliver but those shipping prices are atrocious. Might as well grab it while you're picking up some veggies.
Ok, I'll install rxTools then. I should grab the CFW from here, right? https://lavanoid.github.io
Also, this guide is still valid for doing it? http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
Lavanoid dropbox is dead for the moment, so here's the rxtools build I used. https://mega.nz/#!lR03UIZD!cJ8bhIwlN-JqYAM1p_aUwmus2jxK70fy8M5DEwyJcwA
And yeah, that guide is valid.
Finally got everything where I want it. It's a testament to
how pants-on-headretarded I am due to the fact that it took me two days to do it
N3DS 9.2 emuNAND w/ Cakes coldboot and some netorare on the side. Just tested everything using FEif, MHX, and RTTB+.
So I'm trying to install the 2.5 Homebrew Launcher on my 9.2 sysNAND, and after trying multiple times with different downloads of the starter pack it keeps fucking saying it's the 1.1b version of the Homebrew Launcher, which doesn't work with Menuhax.
What am I doing wrong?
hey, i'm getting an error when i try to use browserhax. it simply says an error has occured and that i should restart the system. i've done this before, and i'm doing it the same way i did back then, but it doesn't want to work. has anyone solved this problem?
When I click the slider it gives me pic related, any ideas?
so yeah, just format that bitch up (remove SD when the red format button appears)
you'll have to install menuhax again, though
I'm not sure, I didn't use that method, sorry
but it should be the same process
at worst you'll have to install menuhax again
Yes just copy/paste when you get a bigger one
>tried to update emunand
Should I just retry or did I overlook something? Where are these cias installing anyway? The guide I'm following just says to install some useful stuff like bigblue and hbl but no other details.
it's this one, but quite old and for 4.5, though it seems to be the same problem
the one in the pastebin people are probably using is this one
repeat the process several times
it's retarded, took me like 15 tries every time I had to redo it
there's a way that supposedly works every time
>turn off wifi
>go to browser
>go to camera and read the QR
>go to browser
>do the initial browser setup
>turn on wifi
>open browser and click slider
it worked once for me
is there a way to create .cia game patches that are installed like updates to create/install mods? hasnt this been done with the pokemon games?
It's the definition of insanity, but ok. I was using 9.0.0-20U firmware before
before my retard brother updated, so that's what I'm downgrading to. Does that make a difference?
I'm trying to downgrade a n3DS using sysUpdater 0.4.2b and I keep getting the message
main.cpp : 148: Result: 0xD900182F
Failed to get CIA file info!"
every time I hit the downgrade button.
>>127731575 says to keep retrying but I am worried that I fucked something up along the way
>There are three files that end in .here (two are in /cakes/ ) you will need to copy the actual files so they are next to the .here files.
Call me stupid, but what the fuck does this mean?
I don't know why some people are that scared, everything was piss easy.
Just finished downgrading to 9.2 and am now working on the next steps. It says I should put the FBI and emunand "3ds" folders into the root of the SD card. Should I merge it with the old 3ds folder I got for installing homebrew, or delete the old one and make a new one for these next few steps?
Uhm. Sorry for being extremely dumb, I guess you wanted to know how to do it.
Check this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-rebuild-a-custom-update-for-pok%C3%A9mon-xy-oras.391282/
Okay, so. I finished everything and such. But when I try to spoof my N3DS for Eshop access, it connects and recognizes my id for a second before sending me away and telling me to update.
Did I goof something?
Yes, that was the scary part. Just don't update sysnand
I'm using the recommended SysUpdater from the pastebin,
I have only gotten black screens in rows, is there anything wrong? My 3ds is n3ds.
Right guys, I have two 4GB SD's, and I'm formating my nand with gateway right now.
But I got a question, I'll still be able to play my games on sysNAND with the other SD, which have all my games?
Is Yokai Watch legit .cia has been uploaded?
>Don't feel like explaining how.
enjoy literally no one trying to help you then
if you don't explain how, how are we supposed to tell you if you can start over, if it's fixable, or how to do it?
try L+R+A+Up arror right as it boots, if you want to update back to 10.3 and fix a softbrick
Aa far as I understood the FAQ and n3ds anons, the process might take several attempts.
Not scared of bricking because if I can read I should be able to not fuck up.
Just a bit lazy/impatient
I can't get into rxtools with MSET after updating my emunand. Is there any way to get this fixed? I can't figure it out. (It worked once when I tried using a different build, but stopped working after that)

by the way, is 3dsiso the only site that works? mega3dsblogspot just makes me end up on linkpays or whatever forever, and roms43 is literally shit.
Few questions here, I'd love to have someone answer them.
I just downgrade to 9.2 on my N3DS, is it safe to follow this guide from here on out? https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
Also I can no longer boot the system into menuhax, is that normal after downgrading?
I have a downgraded o3DSXL on 9.2 and I'm trying to install the Homebrew Launcher on my sysNAND using Ninjhax. I'm using the most up to date files, but when I scan the 9.2 QR code it takes me to the installer for 1.1b. It's especially annoying since I'm trying to install Menuhax but it only works on 2.0 or higher.
Any ideas on what's happening?
In this link (https://mega.nz/#F!cc10iZ7I!6lsenuB_u1kvLukCOpDXSA) most of the info files with each game say that they haven't been patched to remove region lock. I can just run them through NTR to make them work fine, yes?
dont forget the delicious dlc senpai

Uhh I'm getting conflicting information here, last screen also said I could relink it to this console. I'm even more confused now
There isn't a guide for that, but it seems like it would be almost the same if not the same really. Just look into it a little. Apparently it's easier if there's already an updated made by Nintendo so you can look at how it's done.
My guess is that you just add the stuff from the romfs to the update, but I might be wrong.

Anyone else having trouble installing FBI to H&S app?
I'm following this guide the letter and no matter what, whenever I try to boot H&S after injecting I just get an error screen and have to restart.
Question about installing FBI.cia. I installed it and then went to emunand. emunand froze on me so I restarted and checked home menu. Home menu didn't have fbi on it. Do I need to reinstall fbi.cia?
In addition could someone better explain the process/where the files should go for installing cakes? The pastebin has been great until now but it's just fucking confusing at this poin.
Hey guys just imagine this, there is going to be a waitfag who will do all this shit next week or maybe later, at the same moment he tries to update his RX-U 9.2 to 10.3, Nintendo will drop 10.4
How hilarious would that be?
I've been using Gateway forever and ever and just using the web browser to launch it, but I decided I wanted to try out Menuhax so I won't need an internet connection to enter Gateway mode anymore.
Now note I have linked sysnand and emunand. Preferably, I'd like to keep it that way.
When I install menuhax to sysnand emunand will cease to load and hang on a black screen. If I uninstall menuhax it returns to normal and I get back in no problem. Is this just because my nands are linked? Does it have to do with theme settings? Is there a way to fix this without unlinking my nands?
Hey guys, could use some help here!
Okay, so I got everything running, emunands and all. My question is... what do I do if I want to swap to a bigger sd card? I heard of injecting emunands and such, but I was hoping someone could toss me a current, totally vouched for guide.
Speaking of which, does it matter if my bigger SD card is a microSD in an adapter? It still functions like an SD card, but I'd figure I'd ask! Thanks!
Anybody has a CtrBootManager config that includes both rxTools and Cakes? I tried adding Cakes to the one I had but it just made both of them fail to boot. Also, why Cakes>rxTools? im on o3ds if that makes a difference
has the update cia with it, the actual update can be installed as a .cia and is on every fucking game torrent site and 3dsiso
So let's say I install a US cia game and want to apply a patch. However, the patch is region free. Will the patch work on the US version or only on other region free versions of the game?
is it absolutely necesssary that my nndi works? I just wanted to play games and I have been on this all day.
Honestly it's as simple as running a program. Format emunand onto the new SD card then search for "emuNAND tool."
Press the extract emuNAND button when you have your old SD in then press inject emuNAND when you have the new SD in. That's literally it.
If you wanna swap SDs you'll have to
>get menuhax working again
>use emunand9 to make the partition again
>unlink by formatting
and it's done
And as long as both the sd card and the adapter are working, it's fine, I never used an actual SD card on my 3DS aside from the one that came with the 3DS back in the day
Why does FBI keep failing to install my cia files? I tried reinjecting into Health & Safety, I even tried remaking the title.db and import.db and it still tells me install failed. What the fuck did I do wrong?
Put it in /3ds like the guide told you to
updates folder goes at the root
might as well double check you didn't download the wrong update file if you're dicking around on the SD card
Emunand tool. There's a gbatemp thread
>make emunand backup on bigger SD card using Gateways browser launcher
>backup smaller SD card with emunand tool
>emunand.bin will be made
>plug in bigger SD card and inject emunand.bin
>copy contents of smaller cards to bigger one
It still functions as an SD
here's a screenshot I took of another anon's post from the last thread,
First try, I don't even know how, but I just did what the pastebins said me to do and that's it. I didnt even had to do some of the other things like booting that FTP-3DS, just pressed Y and waited. I even tought that it wouldn't work or that maybe it was a soft-brick case but it still says I'm on 9.2 after rebooting and stuff.
Following this guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>You can unlink your NANDs at this point by formatting your sysNAND. To do this you can either remove your SD card and format sysNAND from the system settings, or get an application called TinyFormat (https://github.com/javimadgit/TinyFormat/releases) that won't require you to have your SD card out. All your data will still be safe on your emuNAND after you do so.
I used Tinyformat's only function, to format the SD card after getting Emunand the way it was described in the guide. Then I rebooted and the 3DS acts like it's factory settings. The guide mentions all my data is safe on the emunand after it...
1. How do I access the data on my emunand?
2. I previously formatted this card with all my bought games on it, but they're backed up. Once I get the cake stuff working, can I get my bought and backed up games safely?
Well I guess it doesn't matter either way, but would save me some time.
Anyone? I'm really disappointed that it isn't working after an update
Anyone else having trouble with the time/date settings in emunand using RXTools? Trying to get Animal Crossing set up for my sister but time keeps desyncing by hours whenever the 3DS isn't being used
perhaps some tiddy will draw attention
So by Janaury 11th the browserhax won't work? Or at that time will they release an update that if you update it wont work?
I ask because my cousin can get one on the 11th and I want to know if he can still hack it if he doesn't update past 10.3?
What folder do I want to stick the dbs stuff into? Both have a dbs folder inside of them?
>Menuhax into HBL
>If it doesn't blackscreen, get red text
>main.cpp:148: Result: 0xD900182F
>Failed to get CIA file info!
What the actual fuck am I supposed to do, I'm freaking out. I have a NAND backup from before I went full retard and updated, but I also formatted the system memory. Am I fucked out of intentionally hardbricking and then hardmodding into an appropriate firmware?
I unlinked using tinyformat and formatting my emunand. My eshop games, friends list, etc is all gone from my emunand. Can I clone my sysnand to it to get all that stuff back while keeping them unlinked?
browserhax seems to be working on my n3ds
but with the starter kit loaded onto the sd card, running the exploit boots me back into homescreen.
Not currently invested in a downgrade, but I'm wondering if there's something so simple that I'm missing
Yep. I suggest making a NAND.txt in that folder so you can log which one is which.
Also probably good to have dbs in both folders, so you can install .cia on both NANDs for any reason you need to.
Using CTRbootmanager and I have rxtools 10/2 build. Things are fine now with the booting, but I'm trying to access the rxtools menu and every time I run it and hold R it skips it and goes straight to home page. The rxtools is working, I just want to get to the menu now.
>8pm Eastern until Tuesday, January 12
So this means that at 8pm on the 11th browserhax wont work?
My method was checking date modified, as I setup the system yesturday, the timestamp matched
I unlinked this morning, so it's timestamp had been modified. so in my case, the older one was the emulated system
I'm guessing you're using the libkhax build of julian20's sysupdater, your result is a perfectly normal failure, you should retry until you succeed.
I've retried a few times before switching to the SUlib build though
Nope. I think you can even dump your EmuNAND with EmuNAND backup tool and inject that back into SysNAND if you wanted
The big thing is that each NAND will read a specific folder from the /Nintendo 3DS/ folder, and if it (and all the files in it) matches with your NAND's internal ID (which can change by formatting) then it should work, just as long as you're using the proper CFW in the proper NAND
I was just a little worried about trying Tux's build because I think I read that Tux's had a higher chance of bricking?
I'm using a o3ds though.
>just be prepared to sit there resetting for a few hours
/hbg/ was lying when some said these builds are "stable" now.
I'M SORRY ITS A STUPID QUESTION
BUT I COULD USE THE HELP
I got here. I'm so close to having my shit boot on emunand without me going through browser. Why isn't rxTools working?
Stuck at pic related while following http://pastebin.com/6BBug6nD
Anyone have any ideas?
But it just seems so hopeless to keep trying without making any kind of progress. It seems like sheer luck that this might work eventually. I am downgrading to 9.0.0-20, does that matter?
Also, am I fucked out of hardmodding since I formatted my system memory, since I have a NAND backup from before that format?
browserhax will still work if you're on 9.2, otherwise i suggest you downgrade now or at least update to 10.3 and get ironhax+menuhax before the 10.4 update, because a softbrick will still screw you over, forcing you to update to 10.4
FBI injection is a pain in the ass. Use pastacfw to get into HBL, run FBI as a .3dsx, install FBI.cia to sysnand, then copy sysnand over to emunand
if you already unlinked Sysnand, extract NAND.bin from EmuNAND using EmuNAND Tool and restore it to sysnand by holding Up and pressing A on Downgrade Console in the Gateway Menu
Try running rxTools through HBL without CTRBootManager. If you still can't run it, then it's probably a bad version of rxTools
So I ordered a 2DS from the Nintendo store but unless I can go back and change the shipping method I won't get it before Monday and I don't really have the money to buy from a local store. Am I fucked?
Yeah, you can remove all the .cia files you've installed, they're just installer files. You will need to reinstall menuhax after the downgrade. Upgrading to 10.3 will not hinder your NNID usage. You can delete the "private" and "updates" folder, as well as the sysupdater.
On O3DS, yes.
N3DS is a bit more complicated. You should use sysupdater (the original one by profi200) to get up to 9.5 EmuNAND. Choose Update and not Downgrade. Also, spoof NVER/TIGER to get access to eshop, and this isn't necessary for O3DS either
I tried every sysUpdater that was available when I was downgrading an o3ds, I'd try not to worry.
Remove your SD card and reboot it, go to the system settings and check the firmware.
Yeah, but all that really means is that you find a better build and replace the /rxtools/ folder and .3dsx/.smdh with the proper firmware files it wants you to include (check the readme of each rxtools build you use. there's so many different versions of it i don't even know which one is best for n3ds/o3ds anymore)
Ok, so I downgraded to 9.2 successfuly using browserhax and menuhax, but I'm having some trouble after that.
My 3ds won't boot if I have my SD card in.
It boots fine if I take the SD off, and SD works fine if I insert it after 3ds has booted. I also get a blackscreen crash when trying to run rxTools from emunand, even though I did the FBI injection and it worked.
Any idea what of may be happening?
confirming this. i used emunand9 backup tool and have a backup of my original sysnand. you can dump your nand with everything on it and just store it anywhere, i have it on my pc safe and snug surrounded by frog pics
Pray to god that it's on a firmware capable of running browserhax and menuhax
Pray that you dont soft brick and have to be forced to update to 10.4 when it comes on monday
That's it really
>tfw you finally get everything working perfectly
I want to thank all of you helpful anons, especially the guy who wrote the guides for retards
Yeah only seeing one message for failure everytime can be discouraging, that's why I switched to the SUlib build. At least I get to see what progress I'm at before it failed.
A tip if you decide to switch to SUlib: you'll most likely get stuck at numbers 5 and 7, just reboot using L+R+down+B, it'll take you back to HBL. If it doesn't work, hard reboot using the power button and then go back to HBL to start again. I think I've spent at least 20+ tries before succeeding.
As for your last question, I'm not too sure but you should be able to restore if you have backup and hardmod it in
following this guide
I have it to where it autoboots to hbl, then I go to cakes, boot into cakes, then use browserhax to get into hbl again, then fbi. I'm trying to install big blue menu and hbl loader. Both give me a wrong argument error.
Anyone, I seems like an extra step for nothing if there's no benefits. Also, when I'm on 9.2 can I still play games from a cart without issue? (The only game on cart I have is MH4U, I'd hate to undo my work installing all of this by putting the cart in and having it break everything or something.)
Okay, so we got past that but now pic related
I'm so goddamn close aren't I?
Dump EmuNAND with EmuNAND Tool and rename the dump to "NAND.bin" and put it on root
Get into Gateway Launcher (there's a .3dsx version in the Gateway Download .zip) and hold Up when pressing A on Downgrade to restore your original NAND (which is EmuNAND's NAND.bin) back into SysNAND
So I started with an old3dsxl on 10.3.
I downgraded to 9.2 according to retard guide in OP, worked great.
I have browserhax and menuhax working.
My nands are backed up and shit.
I have rxTools successfully installed, and my health and safety overwritten with FBI, also according to guide in OP.
So now, to install a .cia, is all I have to do drop it into root and then install it via the replaced health and safety?
H-have I finally made it?
Alright, I'm starting to wonder if I should go through the procress of unlinking nands before monday. I have rxTools set to coldboot and don't have anything (that I know of) on my sysnand, multiple backups of my Sdcard's content, is it worth unlinking? what're the perks since I've already got coldbooting into rxtools?
"Copy everything to the SD card. There are three files that end in .here (two are in /cakes/ ) you will need to copy the actual files so they are next to the .here files."
what are actual files
I hope lewds help my call
I set autoboot with rxTool up on type 2. Goes through the loader into rxTool--but then it loads the loader again, followed by a red screen.
Going back to type 1 lets me boot into emunand.
What's the deal? Did I make a mistake?
guys is is necessary that my NNID is linked to install the cia game files ? because it wasnt in the guides and i don't get the tutorial to fix the 022 error.
If you want to use it on EmuNAND, get https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-howling-theme-tool-create-your-own-cia-theme-packages-with-custom-and-official-themes.401081/ and pack all your themes as a single .cia and install via DevMenu/FBI
ok I'm following this
I'm using an N3DS USA, I can't figure out how to get rx tools to boot up properly.
I'm using ctrl boot and I'm also using Menu hax. I don't understand why when I try to boot up rx tools I get a black screen and nothing else.
Hey /vg/ I was using this guide to downgrade and CFW but I still got a few questions
1. I got to this step
>If you choosed the Cakes method in the first part you can just continue to use it : just replace the 9.2 firmware.bin with the 9.5 one and check the emunand patch.
I did use cakes and I replaced the 9.2 firmware with the 9.5 one and checked both the signature and emunand patch in cake, is that all I have to do, or do I have to update in sysupdater or something?
2. I never used the online on my 3DS (since I got it today), how do I make a friend ID and all that jazz so I can play online?
3. Should I unlink my NANDs? Will that help me play online?
>trying for 3 days/3 nights
>still can't pirate games
I managed to launch cakeFW with emunand patch and signature disabled patch enabled following this link http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji I'm on n3ds with sysnand 9.2 and emunand 9.5 tried fbi, bigblue and dev menu and I can't for the life of me install non legit cia
is it something wrong in my config (I also tried rxtools 2.6 and nightly) anybody with a N3DS managed to install non legit cia? pleeeeeeease (I've been doing good so far but I've been on this since 11 am and I tried anything to disable those godamn signature)
