-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.
Guys pls help
>now quit and this time run browserhax to install menuhax 2.1
What am I supposed to do here? I'm trying to make the emunand autoboot and its a step 5 from the pastebin guide.
How do I run browserhax and install menuhax?
CAN I JUST DEAD RESET MY SHIT BY TAKING THE SD CARD OUT, FORMATTING IT AND THEN BOOTING MY DS WITHOUT THE CARD THEN UPDATING IT USING THE ACTUAL OFFICIAL UPDATE FUNCTION? WILL THIS LEAVE ME IN A STATE BEFORE ANY GUIDES READY TO GO AGAIN?
i need advice pls
I'm trying to downgrade an O3DS.
I keep getting the "An error has occurred. Please save your data yadda yadda yadda restart system" While trying to run browserhax.
Every time it happens, I format my sd and paste all the files again, it happens randomly, am I doing something wrong?
I have downgrade and hacked my 3DS.
If I play a normal 3ds game (Card version) will it delete my CFW?
Does the hold L to boot homebrew no longer work? I've followed all directions and even started over but I can't get it to work.
I updated. I tried browserhax and still get the red screen. I'm rechecking everything to make sure I have the proper payloads for 10.3 now. I still have the original Ironfall which I'm trying to get installed now, but the lack of tubehax really set me back. It isn't a huge issue as I have an o3ds that has both ironhax and menuhax already working. I just would like a redundant backup console to my main hacked console.
tl;dr Still get a red screen. Thoughts?
>julian20 (SAFEMODE priority)
>tuxSH (SULib)(pros and cons)
Which one should I use to downgrade my O3DSXL? The libkhax one?
I'm just doing it to play the sweet jap games that I fucking deserve.
I'll also install .cia's for games I own just because I'm a lazy arsehole.
People only use this to pirate if they are 12 (see 90% of posts asking for help itt) or edgy.
So I'm on a n3ds and everything worked ok, I went to update the emunand using system update and now whenever I load rxTools it just goes to a black screen. I'm assuming that something happened and the emunand got fucked up. (I just saw that n3ds can't go to 10.3 so I'm a retard)
How do I fix this/install 9.5?
Ignore the other folders and do as the guide says:
to the SD root (where you should have a 3ds folder already).
For more info, check the readme that came with emunand.
Got a problem.
After downgrading to 9.2 with SysUpdater, my Old3ds rebooted without problems, I can play cartridge games too, but whenever I try to run Ironfall or even System Settings my system gets stuck at "Nintendo 3DS" logo screen. Removing the SD card did not help. Anybody had problems like this? What can I do?
Can I install games from any region on cakes? I think I remember some dude here saying he broke his emunand installing a EU game but I can't remember. If nothing else, is it safe to install if it's euro but region free, because I'm seeing a ton of that shit on 3dsiso.
My guide tells me something about "firmware.bin with the MD5 B99ADF0ADB279712367C06EB83BA9AE6"
How can I get this "firmware.bin"?
I GOOGLED and found something named Cakes.zip with 2 files: firmware9.2 and 9.5
It also says I have to rename them to some shit.
The problem here is, are my files the correct ones and which one should I use?
It's just that the pastebin says :
(put the 3DS folder on the root of the SD card)
But the Emunand zip has others folders, like startergen, EmuNAND9 and the pastebin doesn't say if they should be in the sd card too
Asking again, is there any way to avoid the looping of HBL when you have coldboot? I tried renaming the bootHbl.3dsx to like cats.3dsx and editing the two Hbl files to make it into its new name, but it'd just autoboot to hbl instead of bringing up the menu that lets me choose between rxtools and hbl? Was I not supposed to replace/rename the boot.3dsx in the file to the new name I gave hbl's boot?
I updated emunand to 9.5, but nothing will work now.
since after the update i got various blackscreens i popped the SD card out, renamed the folder inside nintendo 3ds shit, popped it back, let it do it's shit and then moved all the files from the previous version in the new version. (with the emunand tools i made a backup of my nand, but when i try to inject it back it says "wrong file size" so i had to try at least that)
after that i see i'm on 9.5, but whenever i try to install menuhax i get an error message and when i try to boot pastaCFW i get a blackscreen.
do i have to start everything again back from scratch? i might use a new sd card if that's the case.
Try another .cia
Google "online md5 checker".
Refer to http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji for more info on cakes installation.
Read the thread:
It was the first thing I did after installing the cfw, and finishing this guide
I'm not sure I have an emunand backup, and I don't really care if I have to reinstall it, I'm just not sure what step to go back to.
Okay not sure what to do. Here's my setup:
>Japanese firmware 9.1
>Followed this guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-install-a-cfw-on-a-9-0-9-2-n3ds-without-cn-oot.398394/
>Auto boots to run rxTools on emunand 9.1
Every game i've installed so far works except for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (USA)
Somebody told me to install and run the NTR cfw, so I installed the NTR .cia and run it. The game still isn't working. I tried using the language plug in with it.
What do I need to get Xenoblade Chronicles running on my system?
Again, Japanese N3DS booting into rxTools / emuNAND ver 9.1
So how can I take screenshots with my new pirate machine
On my n3DS I would just home menu out, go to miiverse, and save it there then DL it on my comp
What fancy way can I screenshot on my CFW'd o3DS
I gave you an actual game you fuckwit.
Yeh, just held the power button and booted it back up. There's no chance of bricking at that part, only the actual downgrading part.
Can someone hook me up with megauploads for One Piece - Unlimited World Red and Tekken 3d?
cant find a download that isn't way too slow
If you can understand spanish just follow this video, it guides you from the downgrade to install the cias, if you dont understand spanish try to watch it anyways it might help you somehow
Think you can start with start emuNAND setup (since that creates the emuNAND partition, you already did the previous steps) but if you aren't sure you can start from the beginning of the CFW section.
Do you mean .cia files?
Here ya go.
Also, just double confirming.
10.4 is going to block the homebrew channel, right?
If that's the case I'm just gonna shut off my wifi and enjoy playing snes games on my 3ds. Kinda too lazy to get emunand and sysnand running, but from what I understand, if you have emunand on 9.2 and sysnand on 10.3, it's no issue...
Literally in the exact same scenario except I'm having my issues with Majora's Mask. Haven't tried Xenoblade myself though.
I did that but sadly it didn't help at all.
How do I know NTR is running?
I placed ntr.bin in the root of my SD card, then installed BootNTR.cia. I ran the NTR app on my home menu (in emunand while rxTools is running). The NTR app runs without a problem and says "NTR cfw loaded, press the home button" but the system settings still says RX-E 9.1 indicating rxTools is still running.
Is there an NTR installation guide somewhere for N3DS?
>same way you ran browserhax on sysnand. it's literally step one of every fucking guide
What do you mean? go.gateway-3DS.com?
I have no idea what browserhax is. It wasn't mentioned in the guide I used
exactly, you'll be fine since you clearly speak the language already
just follow the pictures, mang. all of the tools used look different enough from each other, so follow along with the patebins
Halfway through my CFW journey.
Thank you for awnsering dumb questions. I wanted to understand what it was I was doing to my 3DS, and now I understand the process.
Once I'm completely done setting up my 3DS I plan on paying it forward and offering tech support until the 11th.
Thank you for everything.
>Downloaded a supposedly "Online Patched" cia for Super Smash Bros
>Try to play online
>"Failed to connect to partner's device"
>Same with Triforce Heroes
come the fuck on, mega3dsroms
MHX works alright
anyone got a online working cia for smash and TFH? mind to share a link?
I'm on o3DS 10.3 emunand btw and yeah both games got the latest updates
This may be a stupid question but I'm at 9.5 U and I use ninjhax with a Sky3DS for homebrew, is this ok to downgrade? I tried setting up browserhax but it always gives me an error (an error has occurred, please save your data in any software...)
Found these two fixes earlier. Feel free to give it a try : https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-coldboot-w-homebrew-launcher-support-menuhax-ctrbootmanager.408540/. Or give this a try : https://gbatemp.net/threads/re-release-bootctr-a-simple-boot-manager-for-3ds.401630/
I spent literally all day looking for it and found these two this morning
Just wondering if there was a more convenient way to switch to emuNAND on rxTools. I've been using the browser urls to get there, but it's kinda shit
Underneath a spoiler on this post, it says using the language emulation plugin fixes Majora's Mask EUR version running on JP system, maybe this will solve your Xeno issue as well.
Formatting allows you to reset the code. It also removes everything else, so back your shit up.
Menuhax more convenient since you can boot directly into it if you press L on boot.
Refer to guide: http://pastebin.com/TQwDsWh9
It explains how to fix MAC-related problems.
I already downgraded and installed rxtools on my o3ds and I'm considering doing the same on my n3ds, but I'm not sure if I want to since it's my main one with eShop purchases. To those of you who installed CFW on your main 3ds, what issues do you have with your purchases and your NNID? Also, would I be able to still make purchases after installing CFW, like DLC and games? What about updates, should I get all updates from somewhere other than the eShop, or would I be okay getting the updates for purchases and physical carts from the eShop?
My brethren, got an old version of theme hax on my n3ds, if I wanted to use menuhax 2.1 to get a custom theme on my emuNand would all I have to do be running menuhax installer from the hbl I run with themehax?
I had already set everything up and even installed a game, but while I was deleting the .cia, I think I erased something else and now I get the softbrick screen when loading emunand. I can still load 9.2, so it's not a brick. Here's my SD root, can anyone see what files am I missing?
depending on your version of rxtools, holding L or R on boot will boot you into emunand straight away
if you're on sysnand, go into system settings and hold whatever trigger worked before closing system settings and it'll boot you into emunand too
I bought the console and I would buy the games if they'd just localize them. Most games I wanted to play I already bought/will buy when they come out, except for Virtue's Last Reward which I couldn't find anywhere in my fucking country at a reasonable price, I'd love to get that shit physical. I also downloaded Pokemon Y and AS, but once I get every exclusive legendary I'll delete them (I bought the counterparts, I deserve to have access to every fucking pokemon)
I'm doing the downgrading. I just got the sysUpdater 0.4.2b
I pressed "Y" to downgrade, and was told that it may be stopped some seconds and then install some .cia stuff.
But it's been minutes and keeps still. No reaction.
Should I turn it off?
Now that I've formatted my SD via emuNAND9 there is a EmuNAND9 folder.
Do I overwrite it with the one from my saved files? Does it not matter?
Just curious, thanks.
in the process of downgrading, i got a monhun n3dsxl with the original sd card inside, on 10.x.x
is using the same sd card that came with it safe to use, just so long as there is enough space? (there is just over 1 gb of space left over) will the downgrade process erase any saves or other data?
Thanks, Should I rename/edit both payloads though? I've got two, guessing one of them is from 9.2's HBL and the other 10.3? Not sure if I should just edit the 10.3 HBL since that'd be the one I'd load I'm guessing, or the 9.2?
it happens all the time with me, I haven't been able to play a single online match in both smash and TFH
also, my internet connection is alright since MHX online works perfectly
Try pressing Y again
If nothing works then it froze
I had to try lotsa times, using browserhax
In the end I installed menuhax and for some reason it worked when launching sysUpdater from there
So I have a 8.1.0-9U 3DSXL. I fucked with it the last time people were hacking their 3DS to play .cias.
Do I need to upgrade to 9.2 or what? Or do I just start on a guide that installs CFW?
I especially don't feel guilty for doing it to Nintendo. Maybe if those kikes lowered their prices every once in a while like every single other publisher I'd be more inclined to purchase games.
Need help. Im trying update rxtools to v3.0. Now i have to launch rxTools with browser, but doesnt work, browser always give me a error. Any idea?
>go to sysupdater
>Y to downgrade
>boots back into HBL
Anyone know how to fix the issue where upgrading from 9.2 to 9.5 on emunand n3ds causes emunand to be bricked? I tried 3 times and everytime it bricked
>Does anyone else feel guilty doing this?
No, fuck Nintendo.
They are the only console manufacturer in 2016 that still enforces region locking and never lower the price on games released years ago.
Ocarina of Time 3DS is still $39.99 on the eshop and even fucking Mario Kart DS that came out which came out a decade ago is still $35 in many retail stores.
Yes. Every time, the weird static lines appear as usual, then error screen. Again, I can boot 9.2, so if all is lost at least I can just set CFW again, but if there's just a few files I'm missing, then I should try that.
>Been using a 9.2 n3ds for a while
>Tfw I just downgraded both my old o3dsxl and my sister's o3ds
>Was easy and had no problems because I don't have brain damage
Life feels JUST
If I switch to a new SD card after doing the emunand stuff and installing CFW, do I have to do the emunand stuff on the new one as well? Or can I just copy over all the stuff off my old card?
I've been searching for ten minutes on making menuhax themes
it's dumb luck that I haven't found anything yet even on gbatemp, only fools who are having issues using themes in general
has anyone seen a useful thread?
the zip i downloaded is called "9.5.0-23E(Full)_n3DS.zip (I have european 3ds).
Do you happen to know the md5 hash so I can check if it's the right one?
digital games get removed obviously since they are stored on the sd card that you format. Just back up your entire sd card before formating, later you can copy it back into the sd card allowing you to play it again.
...did you set menuhax or rxtools to autoboot?
Just wait a bit.
Good luck, anon.
It shouldn't be a huge issue.
And I doubt there's big changes since they're gba games.
Kirby triple deluxe
Rune factory IV
Just wait a bit.
Pretty good guide.
Edited it and renamed hbl to cats.3dsx again, still red screens. Shit man. when I launch the HBL from emunand it leads back to the autoboot still, but at least it doesn't destroy it. Still sucks though that I can't just launch hbl properly.
emunand is on a hidden partition, maybe you could use emunand tool to backup that partition and inject it into your new sd card but idunno. (also, latest version of emunandtool can't inject so you have to use 1.0.3 to backup and 1.0.1 to inject)
can someone link AGB_FIRM for o3ds?
also is installing a cia to both sysnand and emunand as simple as running FBI in emunand and installing the cia twice, once to NAND and once to SD card?
Can I ask retarded Wii questions?
What on earth are all the iOS's?
ios249, ios250, etc?
What are they, how do I get them, how do I use them? I haven't been able to find any explanations through google, maybe I just suck.
I'm trying to install some VC wads because I was a top tier retard and transferred them to WiiU, thinking the WiiU VC would be good.
Also is there a guide explaining how to make a wad, how to inject a rom (or rom hack) into a wad, and all the details about that?
I've found no help through google for this stuff, closest thing was this
But I'm still not sure.
Also my wiimote turns off in Yet Another Wad Manager when I select IOS249.
thanks for the help if you give any
Hey guys, quick question. So I got everything set up, quick booting into CTR Boot Manager and then booting emunand from rxTools.
My problem is, I want to switch my theme. Browserhax and the Homebrew Launcher app just seem to boot into CTR though, and choosing Boot Manager from that may be fucking with my emunand. I've set the theme multiple times through that process, and I swear it only changes the sysnand.
My question is, is there a way to ensure that browserhax or the Homebrew Launcher app will actually load HBL? And in a way that won't mess up say... Me quick booting into CTR.
And actually, is there just a THHM .CIA somewhere? That'd make the process a lot easier
I'd really appreciate the help, thank you guys! You guys rock, and I thought I'd never get my hands on the Best Plus.
Can somebody please tell me that there is a way to run Flipnote Studio on a EUR 3DS in rxTools?
I've been waiting for this shit to come to Europe for fucking ages and just when it was finally in my reach it gives off an error on boot.
Well here goes nothing, let's see if I got it:
1) take the micro sd out of the 3ds (in the sd is emunand)
2) 3ds will load in sysnand
3) here go to system settings > page 4 > format system
5) what now?
Question. I made a back up of my sd card and got cfw running. Now I want to get my saves from my legit eshop games from my backup back onto my sd card. How do I go about doing that? I know I gotta use savdatafiler but what should I be looking for?
It will create a .cia file with your theme(s) in it that you can then install via FBI/BBM etc. They will then show up in the theme select in settings.
Is there a way to boot straight into emunand?
at least so i dont need an internet connection to go through the browser rxtools every time
I have an eu n3ds as well, and the same problems. I managed to find this page, scroll down to find the dude's solution. Haven't tried it, though. https://gbatemp.net/threads/emunand-update-on-a-downgraded-japanese-n3ds.408071/
>For some reason, if you removed the emuNAND's Nintendo 3DS profile on the SD card, the Home Menu would come back up. I was able to transplant my games back into the profile afterwards. That way, I kept my NNID linked, as well as reached 9.5E
I think there's always a small chance of bricking when messing with this type of stuff, but as long as you read everything and double-check that you have everything correct, you'll be fine. I downgraded and installed cfw the minute it came out and everything is working fine. Just don't be a retard anon
It will want to connect to internet. Just let it.
Format. Go through usual startup shit, then enter the theme menu so Menuhax has clear way.
Then you can run Browserhax and install Menuhax to autoboot glorious Emunand.
Too much of a retard to follow the cfw guides.
Just gonna get a 2nd 3ds for homebrew.
How comfortable is the 2ds?
Or should I just fork over an extra $50 for a regular 3ds?
NOW THAT I CAN INJECT VIA .CIA
WHEN I USE AN EMULATOR AND INJECT IT VIA.CIA, DO ROMS NEED TO BE INJECTED VIA .CIA? CAN THEY? DO THEY HAVE TO BE?
IS THERE AN ADVANTAGE TO USING A ROM THROUGH AN EMULATOR INSTEAD OF A ROM CONVERTED TO .CIA?
Sadly I can't try it because my emunand bricks everytime I update to 9.5
Yeah since it's a .cia it will work in emunand.
alright I guess i'll try that then.
I keep getting this error while trying to run browserhax.
Any advice? Besides killing myself.
I followed the imgur flowchart in the OP all the way down to using rxTools 2.6 to inject FBI.
Do I automatically have rxMode now? I think I was able to get into it through the browser.
Is there also a way to get into it without the browser?
To follow up on this, the website that I got one of the .cia I've tried said that the game doesn't work in emuNAND but I can't understand why.
Why is this one .cia unbootable? There has to be a workaround surely.
I can't seem to get the GBA games to work after installation. They're installed on my emuNAND but when I try installing on my sysNAND, it fails immediately
Also, I don't know if this is important, but I lost the original H&S app and can't recover it, nor can I restore a past NAND. Will this be an issue?
so I've downgraded my n3ds to 9.2 and made an emuNAND
how do I unlink my NANDs and retain my NNID on my sysNAND? you can't relink a NNID after formatting the system memory unless you do a system update, right?
I can't get to Homebrew launcher using the browser on 9.2 sysNAND for the life of me. It keeps fucking crashing even when I clear cookies, history/initalize save date and click on the far right of the slider
guys i've downgraded to 9.2 but the sysupdater is stuck at the "rebooting in 10 seconds..:"
w-what sould i do? do i turn it off then on manually?
SliderHax is shit, but it's all you have. Keep trying senpai.
Once you install the .cia's you can delete them off your sd card.
If you have devmenu you can delete them through that, otherwise you gotta take out your sd card and remove them manually.
using http://pastebin.com/6BBug6nD it ends up at a screen telling me, "An error has occurred. Please hold power button." wat do? pls halp
We're doomed. Might have to go forward without that 9.5 update.
So take out my SD card, turn on the 3DS as normal, turn off Wifi, and then format, in settings, right? Then afterwards I can just plug in my SD card it it will be like before, but everything is unlinked, right?
What the fuck, tapping the left side actually worked
Guys, i have CFW and i have a small question:
I have a retail cartridge game (Resident Evil Revelations). If i'm on the emuNAND, can i play it without any serious issue?
I don't want to download the game (3GB )
Been trying to downgrade by sysUpdater for a while. Last time, has been 15 minutes.
I was told that it may seem like the screen froze for some seconds/minutes, and that I should be patient.
Is this normal? I have also been told to try menuhax, would it be useful?
So I used the "for retards" guide to downloading and put everything where it said to. When I run it, it says "failed to get CIA file info". Anyone care to tell me what happened? Any way to fix this issue?
>tfw the SNES emulator works like a charm
Im stuck if anyone can help:
Im stuck installing the coldboot process. I installed rxTools and i dowloaded the 4.X-mset stuff. But dont I have to be on 4.x first? If so, should it be sysnand?
And, Im also lost on how to install .cias. I have the health and information thing replaced by the .cia installer, but it says database not found when i attempt to install any.
So my nand's are definitely unlinked if I have a bunch of DSiWare on my emuNand and none of that stuff on my sysNand right?
The sysNand is also only 1 row of icons while the emuNand is 3.
Am I safe to do a system update in emuNand now? Is there something else I should check before?
i shat myself since it took longer than expected but i'm on 9.2
now if i want to play monster hunter X... can i follow this guide? (on new3ds)
or is there a safer/better way?
Anons I think I fucked something up my n3DS screen is blue with some letters and numbers pic related can anyone help me please? I used the guides from op and downloaded stuff to card HELP PLEASE!!!!!
I managed to get my homebrew working again. Now I need to find a larger SD card. Is there a specific rating or speed I should be looking for? Or would it be wasteful to spend money on the ones that transfer data faster than a certain speed? I only ask because now that homebrew is working I'm going to start working on the full aspects of using the console.
It does, it's fucking amazing.
Unfortunately there's some games that don't work.
So far I found that
>Super Castlevania 4
>Super mario RPG: Legend of the 7 stars
>Super mario world 2: Yoshi's island
All don't work.
But at this point I can play shit like super metroid, demon's crest, megaman x, lufia 2, terranigma and secret of mana just fine.
Can anyone confirm if menuhax is gonna be blocked with the 10.4 update?
So, nothing to do but keep trying.
Welp, thank you, anon. I'll keep doing the thing.
What is going to be low is the menu load since you're booting the emuNAND from the SD.
Aside from that, other things like the games and software works with no unreasonable lag.
I'm using the gametemp guide to set up cfw on n3dsxl and I'm stuck at this step: The rxTools folder should consist of four folders now, called \firm, \lang, \sys, \theme, with \firm containing your renamed firmware file.
All I have is \firm and \theme, do I have the wrong rxtools?
>Set up coldbooting into cakes
>Menuhax now freezes at white screen 9 times out of 10
This shit is fucking bonkers yo.
I think what it is, is that Cakes sometimes fucks up and doesn't display anything even though it's running, especially when launched though HBL. But if you have it set to autoboot that doesn't matter.
Anyway, running it with autoboot through ctrbiitmanager it works 100% for me.
I installed Mario & Luigi Paper Jam but when I select it nothing appears on the top screen and opening it just crashes the system. My other games work fine, is this a known problem with the game or is something probably just wrong with the file I downloaded?
I'm being an idiot right now and just want some clarification since a lot of things contradict one another across guides.
1. I want to use Emunand9tool instead of gateway, if I clone my sysnand to emunand to create an emunand to use do I lose everything I already have downloaded/mess with my nnid?
It says its not supposed to wipe my data but I want to make sure.
2.Should I back up my sysnand before doing this?
3.Should I just go the general route usually listed and format sysnand instead and keep things that way?
Did you install autoboot before unlinking too?
Just redo it and everything will work fine, don't spazz out.
Make sure you delete brew.3dsx and the other obvious shit).
Not that Anon but that just happened to me.
best way to check nand's are unlinked? And when they are, it's safe to do a system update from the settings menu in emunand right?
pls respond, I don't want to fuck it all up now
HOLY SHIT NOW I CAN PLAY PHOENIX WRIGHT DD FINALLY. THANKS TO ALL YOU HELPFUL FUCKS.
BTW Using Cake if i have a game from another reigon. do I have to run NTR then press the home menu, close, then launch the game every time I start my 3ds up?
How the fuck do I set menuhax 2.1 to autoboot? There is no option for that
Can I use an app (like save_manager) to copy my save from a retail cart of smash bros to the pirated copy on emuNAND? I just want to play against my brother without buying another copy or unlocking everything again.
Maybe I'm dumb but where is it?
I pressed the third option and it says press a to continue, nothing about type 1 or 2
Anyone got an opinion over the 2ds vs the 3ds?
Shit like battery life, screen size, quality, etc...
Retard maximus from previous thread i am about to start this whole cfw thing on 4.5 fw
i am reading through http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
so far the guide said to download a bunch of things and put to specific places in folder
my question is if my file structure looks ok/if i forgot any file and lastly where am i supposed to put the stuff from homebrew starter kit since there is no explanation on what to do with it
You should be able to set different date/times for each NAND.
I'm also still pussying in front of system update screen. Guides say it is OK on o3DS, but I can't find any info elsewhere.
Cakes also doesn't display anything next to version number to signal being in emuNAND...
About three fiddy GB
I know right
you're welcome little fucker
Good thing I have a US 3DS
Press Y then L
no have to star over
I can't remember, but used Brouserhax to install menuhax again and got to my booter, everything in my emunand is safe again except my custom theme wasn't on and all my games installed were giftwrapped again.
I'm done. I'm fucking done. It's just not working. Guides are simple as fuck and I followed step by step but this isn't working. There must be something that I am missing. Or maybe my 3ds is retarded, or maybe I am. Probably both.
Help me out here, everytime I fucking manage to get the installations going for downgrade it completes and I get an error upon reboot and I have to L+R+Up+A+Power to reset.
And this time I was using a different sysupdater.
I'm on old 3ds 10.3, using Ironhax as an entry point for sysupdater, the installation works (have been successful with tux and julian) but when the 3ds reboots it just softbricks each time.
I used this guide to make a backup of my smash4 game, make it into a cia(1.134GB) and install it. I was able to make the cia as per its instructions and installed it to emunand's sd card using fbi. But when I try to run it it shows an error that the system has to be rebooted and I havent found a way to be able to make it run.
So I've got 1 question:
Is there a step that I'm missing to make it work or something that is special about the smash cartridge not letting it be ran from sd card?
>installed Ironhax back when it came out
>I have a custom theme along with the homebrew apps that came with Ironhax
Will this fuck me up when I try to downgrade?
forgot link to guide:
"that one red site"/r/3dshacks/comments/3zmlvm/simple_guide_to_making_cartridge_backups_for_use
Because people is "special"
turn it off don't reboot it
to play them pirated gemuz
You have to patch original games or they wonr't work
Yeah pretty sure it is
Use your brain the guides work it's just people is to stupid to read the whole instructions
no ones that i know no
Using the original 4gb sdcard that came with the 3ds lets me boot it up fine, the other 2 16 gb one (one that i used for the downgrade and another one) won't load..
>>127809937 here, is there anything special I should do to downgrade properly? Like, should I delete the 3ds folder I had to make for Ironhax so I can start over again with Broswerhax instead?
Alright I've followed the guided downgrade for retards. Now it shows a black screen whenever I boot and if I go to home menu by pressing the power button, its stuck on that pre home menu banner. Did I brick? Can it be salvaged?
It's O3DS, so I guess it'll be okay.
I just don't want to end up screwing something because I've got custom themes and Ironhax on top of the Broswerhax that I'm gonna have to download.
I'd like to know if this plan is safe:
>I have 9.0 CFW (Cakes) and o3DS
>Told to update emuNand to 10.3
>Get 10.3 cias
>back up EmuNand, Nand
>back up SD card
>use sysUpdater while in EmuNand to upgrade to 10.3
Is that right? If I mess up and it soft bricks or otherwise screws with how things are set up, I can use the Emunand9 tool to inject the previous Nand (or EmuNand?) bins I backed up, right? Something like that, I have no idea
Well I don't know if menuhax is going to be supported when 10.4 hits.
And should that be the case, I'm going to want to play stuff online without having to go through the trouble of getting emunand and sysnand going.
If I can't play smash 4 or mh4u online, it's no big deal since I have a fuckhuge 3ds backlog already.
>STILL getting a writing error in sysUpdater with the .Cias
.... Is formatting my system an option? I was able to get this far by formatting my SD multiple times.
My O3DS is ver. 8.1.0-18E. Should i upgrade and then downgrade or do something else ?
>Homebrew starter kit goes into the 3DS folder.
Thank you for the heads up in that case is this how it should look or still missing stuff?
i'm >>127809783 guy
i removed the nintendo 3ds folder and let it boot back again, now it works with the same microsd.
is it fixed or should i restart everything? can it cause any harm?
im using the guide from http://pastebin.com/6BBug6nD and still getting pic related (not mine tho)
Not that anon, but I used this guide. https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-update-emunand-on-a-n3ds.393701/
Although everytime i've tried to update to 9.5 It just freezes on a balck screen and nothing works. There seems to be a few people having this problem. As long as you make a backup of your emuNAND you can restore it though and still be good. If you do get to that point and have to restore it and it says something about invalid file size or whatever, download the enuNANDTool 1.0.1 and use that to restore instead of 1.0.3 and it will work.
>Next, navigate to http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax_auto.php and you should arrive at the homebrew menu. Once here, you may want to install menuhax as an easier entrypoint.
lt doesnt go into homebrew menu nor it crashes it just show a white screen, what gives? Also do l have to reinstall menuhax even after l used it to downgrade?
Yeah, thats what I did. I don't understand how this even happened, as I had the CFW with the correct 3ds model and everything installed properly. I should have used Cakes instead.
If you press Y and get "Failed to get CIA file info!" you didn't put the cias in the "updates" folder on your SD card.
THERE IS NOT
You're fine to continue I was fucking with you
I'd have gotten that one but I have no idea how to load it. It's a wonder I got as far as I did with breaking into this thing
How would I load 1.3 into my o3ds? I haven't seen a pastebin or any tutorial on that, and on the site itself goes on to mention installation with a .cia and there isn't one in the 1.3 zip
I'm trying to backup my emunand on rxtools but it seems to freeze every time
the bar looks all filled but it just stays there with "press B to cancel". If I press B it says it was completed successfully and a emunand.bin is generated on the sd card but I'm not sure if it's corrupted or something
am I missing something? What would be other ways to make a backup of my emunand?
so I unlinked my nand's and updated
Everything seems perfect, except I can't open any of my Dsi Ware. It says there was a problem and to turn the 3DS off.
Is there a fix for this? I'm not TOO fussed since I never play any of them, but I spent money on them so I kinda want them available if I want to play.
yo hbg, i downgraded my 3DS, formatted emunand, did all the stuff and unlinked nands by formatting sysnand without SD card, and now cant access eshop on emunand. Cant also relink NNID to sysnand , because i need to update. Any ideas?
Now installed RXTools again and I'm in the RXTools menu. Is that normal? Do I press boot emunand?
The fuck man, I followed the instructions in http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
I've set up ctrbootmanager and made the changes to the config file, I'm now trying to boot into cakes, hower, when I hit boot cfw it kicks me back to the ctrbootmanager, what have I done wrong?
Also, it's really tempermental
Because all of the guides are a bit overwhelming and I'm too scared of running the risk of bricking my n3DS, I'm just gonna buy a nip unit I found that's loaded with SysNAND 8.1J, Emunand 9.4, and comes with a Gateway red card. I just want to pirate Regular DS & 3DS Games, pirate DLC, and run RetroArch. This is all possible on a Gateway, right?
So what you do is
>unzip the file
>move the blargSnes folder into the 3ds folder on the sd card
>make a separate folder on the root of the sd called snes
>unzip the snes roms and put the .CMB files into the snes folder
>Take sd card out, open menuhax, blargSnes should show up now
