-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.
Reposting from the previous thread.
I've been trying to downgrade for three days straight
I managed to get to pic-related yesterday by formatting my SD card but it's as far as I've ever come.
Because it gets a write error prematurely it thinks it's on 9.2 firmware when in reality it hasn't finished downgrading.
Everytime it fails I have to boot into safe mode and update the system otherwise it'll keep failing to write because it already installed these .CIAs.
What the FUCK do I do? I followed the intructions precisely but to no avail. O3ds and doing this all on menuhax.
and the safest sysupdater too.
Summary of my problem, please help me.
I INSTALLED A THEME IN EMUNAND AND NOW THE CONSOLE IGNORES CTRBOOT AND GOES TO SYSNAND ALONE WITH THE THEME I SUPPOSEDLY INSTALLED IN EMU
I JUST FORMATTED MY SYSNAND
DO I NEED TO REINSTALL MENUHAX
YES OR NO?
>getting CIA informations
>installation finished 10 seconds to reboot...
>ERROR upon reboot and get softbricked
>have to do 4-button reset and upgrade and do it all over again
THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME DOZENS OF TIMES ALREADY, WHY DOES IT KEEP DOING THIS? IS THERE A STEP I'M MISSING AS IT INSTALLS?
You need to unlink your nands for themes to work, I'm pretty sure you have to have sysnand without a theme, go into emunand then activate a theme. Assuming they're unlinked they should work properly. Possibly set emunand to shuffle themes?
hey guys im really confused about a couple things
1. i havent attempted to try to get cfws working but im sure it wouldnt be hard but i have no idea where to download them
2. i downgraded to 9.2.0-20U but no the browserhax doesnt work and i think you need that to get cfws working
3. where can i get stuff to get browserhax working again, or do i need another way to access homebrew now?
How do I uninstall homebrew after installing it from browserhax
Try another entrypoint maybe, or download the update pack again.
You got linked emunands.
Yes if you want to autoboot into emunand with ctrboot manager.
Delete everything that is not the Nintendo 3ds or private folder.
I still can't install smash4 dlc, but every other dlc works. Kill me, now I'm as retarded as you guys.
Why doesn't blargsnes 1.3 work? I installed it via FBI and I even have the folder saved in the 3ds folder for browserhax, but neither of them want to work. All I'm getting are black screens.
Weird, mine are still linked but that's supposed to be the whole perk/benefit of unlinking. Have you tried to resetup the manager/coldboot/rxtools? Obviously clear the themes out of sysnand first. Guessing you've already got the CHMM2 or whatever if not you can try that?
well you said your gba games only worked on rxtools sysnand, i don't know where you messed your setup for that to happen but im doing what i can to guide you achieve what you want
How do I into EmuNAND
I followed the guide
When I restart the 3DS the homebrew launcher automatically starts, but I have set menuhax to Type 1 to only start when I press R.
When I try to start cakes Homebrew launcher starts again.
What do I do to get into EmuNAND? Should I try to install rxtools or ctrbootmanager?
I wouldn't put it off since you probably won't be able to downgrade past monday. I doubt they can block 9.2 browsers though. They'd have a better chance just getting the sites taken down somehow.
Can someone hand me the currrent tubehax DNS? I have it set into my settings but I keep getting update nags from Nintendo. Also am I fully blocked from opening things like Miiverse and Miiplaza from now on since it keeps telling me to update the system.
(I'm on 9.2 emunand on a N3DS)
Well I just got a 3DS on 8.1 so i'm not worried about downgrading, but my new SD card for it doesnt come for another week. If there's anything I absolutely have to do before the 11th I could use my 2GB SD i use for saves on my updated 3DS but i'd prefer not to.

Explain this piratebabs
>all these fucking waitfags
It is impossible to develop a downgrading tool that has no risk of bricking. The only way to be safe is performing a NAND backup and being able to restore it, and the only way to do that right now is with a hardmod. Use what we have now because if you wait for "Stable builds" you might fuck yourself over if you softbrick with those and are forced to update to 10.4
after having rxtools working and passing to the part of having it boot up trough ctrbootmanager now my rxtools wont work as soon as i tell rxtools to boot in emunand all i get is a black screen any tips?
I hadn't even realized he still hasn't delivered. Now he's saying "by sunday".
There are idiots he has brainwashed into thinking KTM is the only way to downgrade without a brick. People will use it and it will fuck them over.
Or wait for Kernel Time Machine. ;)
Don't fucking wait.
>can't play games without cryptofix
True masterrace, we all should thank the fuckers that were here first.
I pressed that, but only because Julian20's glorious antibrick version didn't exist yet, and am too lazy to vote again.
If you can get into emunand and change theme/programs order witthou fucking things up, you have unlinked nands, and I don't know what is happening. You must format with the SD out.
Read more guides and try to comprehend what you are actually doing.
Browserhax. Can't you downlaod ironfall with smealum's shorcut?
Healt&safety app if you injected it. If not, reading time.
Have you tried clearing browser data and both sides of the slider?
Try to run it without ctrbootmanager. If it works, I don't know.
Format system with SD out.
WHO /PARANOID/ HERE?
It pays off i downgraded on my first try
>inb4 blurry picture
I'm on 9.2 i rebooted after the 10 sec and i did not have to take the SD card out
>get to red text
>every fucking time
i've been sitting here for half an hour and this has happened like twenty fucking times god fucking damn
delete shit like these off of SD card.
use this to install sliderhax https://gbatemp.net/threads/yellows8s-browserhax-thread.398132/
keep trying till it works and use it to install menuhax
should I install the gba games in NAND?
last time I did it they looked like blaxk boxes both on sysnand and NAND
I just installed them on sd sysnand this time so I can play them
What was your question, I forgot.
Format or use google.
Google tubehax dns or browse the past thread because someone posted them there.
Reinstall and try to remember the shortcu next time.
no. the only options are the nightly builds if you want to autoboot into emunand or use the MSET exploit to boot into emunand. I prefer the former
after having rxtools working and passing to the part of having it boot up trough ctrbootmanager now my rxtools wont work as soon as i tell rxtools to boot in emunand all i get is a black screen any tips?
So i did everything in
to regain access to the shop but now when i start HANS and select the eshop it was at the loading screen, turned black and that's it, nothing happened.
Now i booted back into cakes, started FMP and just started the eshop without HANS and it looks like it works fine.
What the hell is the point of HANS in that guide?
Who else /2GBsdcard and new one is in the mail/ here?
I'm enjoying Pushmo.
Has anybody else have trouble with the super sm4sh cia from mega 3ds website? I've managed to install it with big blue but whenever I start it up I get pic related. Anybody know any fix?
I'm samefag as >>127819930
Right now I'm at a point that my gifts remain unwrapped and ctrboot works.
NANDS are APARRENTLY UNLINKED because both nands have different versions and if I make folders or install shit in emu in won't appear in sys.
If I install a custom theme via CHMM2 loading the HBL in emu it'll instead be applied in sys and somehow ignore ctr, having me to erase manually boot.3dsx and install menuhax again.
I just want to forget about all this DSiWare shit and have a nice theme to go with my emunand and play only 3ds.
Guess i'll try the former than, but an issue is, I already have 2.6 installed. Will i have to go on my SD card and delete a buncha RXtools shit? or just install the 3.0 build and do the coldboot guide?
Not that anon, but same problem.
When browser send me back to main menu telling me to restart, should I do that before attempting to click the slider again or just back to browser without restart?
OK so I found out my games are "still there" but they look like this now. I can only view them in software management.
How can I fix this? I have no idea what I have done. I just tried to load the shop, it gave me an error, I left and turned the 3ds off.
is there any point to updating to 9.5 emunand if you can just firmware spoof your own shit?
This may be a stupid question, but can you also use this tut for o3ds?
I see, I keep installing the cia files to downgrade but after it installs and reboots after the 10 seconds, I get an error message and have to reboot through recovery mode each time.
So is taking my SD card out an option now since waiting it out obviously won't work after like 50 tries?
>that fucking game
Also, if you are O3DS, you can just update. DLC does have to be installed, tho.
Here, but with the 4GB one. Gonna get a sweet ass 32GB SD soon tho.
I'm on 10.3.0-28U
If I got this right:
>Download starter kit and extract to SD
>Place FW on SD card
>place sysupdater in Nintendo 3DS directory
>run browser launcher
Right? Only, sysupdater is missing in the launcher for me.
Hey I'm having trouble starting rxTools. I originally menuhacks theme was fucking with it somehow but I was able to open enuNAND with Cakes and changed/initialized themes without any issues and it still blackscreens.
Is it possible to do the Health and Safety injector with cakes?
I've re-formatted my SD card and 3DS multiple times now, every time I tried to re-installed FBI it said it was already installed, naturally I took that at it's word and it's become apparent it wasn't actually installed at all.
I think FBI lingering on my 3DS between formats might be causing some problem?
What reason could there be for multiple versions of RX tools simply not working at all?
>could redownload my purchased pokemon, rune factory, ace attorney and majoras mask games plus all my ambassador VC shit
>probably end up just pirating all of that because downloading shit in the eshop is super painful. "Hey you have 24000 of 78000 fun blocks left to download! How long that takes? Why would anyone want to know that!
Don't install games to NAND. Games aren't meant to be put directly into the system and you'll get a blank dummy all that'll crash the game if you open it.
You need to install FBI separately to sysNAND.
That happened to me once. Doesn't even seem to be related to the Emunand stuff, since I've had it before I downgraded. Try looking for a file with only a ? image that takes up 0 blocks, and delete it. It fixed it for me.
They did, but after I opened the eshop in emuNand they stopped showing up anywhere but the data manager.
I really hope they aren't corrupt. I have 4 backups of them so it shouldn't be that, they worked in the first one at the very least.
so i'm getting pic related when i'm autoboot into rxtools emunand. what do i do? if i have to format, is there a way to backup saves?
What exactly do I need to do to get to dev mode again?
I already have sysNAND with FBI, rxTools, and bootmenu all set up.
>tfw don't even care about 3DS games and just wanna play mother 3 on the go
literally 0 chance to brick. Even if you did you are only updating emunand which you can restore from your back up at any point. You are not touching sysnand at all. BE SURE YOU ARE IN EMUNAND WHEN YOU RUN IT THOUGH.
I already have CFW running with FBI app on it.
I want to install a GBA cia and I read that for it to work I need to install it in sysNAND and emuNAND.
you cant brick your sysNAND since you will be upgrading your emuNAND
and if you brick your emuNAND you can just load a backup and replace it to try again.
I just this found out myself but if you get an error while trying to launch the Homebrew launcher through your browser with sliderhax, TRY TURNING OFF YOUR THEME
You're welcome faggots
man I don't get it
I wanna use a gba emulator on my emunand but people are saying its shit
but I can't find a flashcart that lets me play gba games on a 3ds
or is there some kinda workaround/software update that let's it play GBA cias in "DS mode"?
So, I have a New 3DS EUR, downgraded, installed CFW, I have FBI 1.4.5.
I have downloaded like 20 .CIA files but I can install only 3 of them. FBI gives different errors.
Why could this be?
Source: SOURCE_APP_WRITE_CIA (0x6)
Module: MODULE_NN_AM (0x20)
Level: LEVEL_STATUS (0x19)
Summary: SUMMARY_INVALID_ARGUMENT (0x7)
Description: <unkown> (0x1)
how exactly can i inject the gba into the 3ds?
also i think i may need different cias or something
these ones are virtual console and I assumed i could just install them but it didnt work
>tfw finally booted in CFW
Progress is a such a nice feeling.
i've followed this guide.
at the end, with ctrbootmanager set up i get:
1. stuck in a loop that eventually freezes when booting cakes
2. freeze when booting cakes without any loop
what can i do to avoid this inconvenience?
(also do i need to format 2 times sysNAND or only one?)
.CIA is the legitimate file type nintendo uses for eshop games
FBI naming convention was made as a joke from it
No idea where the fuck NTR came from
Cakes was made as joke to Pasta
No idea where the fuck Pasta came from
So if I want to move all of the emunand shit to a bigger sd card, I can follow any of the guides posted here or it matters if I used CakeFW instead of the other thing?
Did anyone install the fire emblem if cia from
Any idea which of the 3 1.1 patches that are linked I'd have to install?
This is the most complicated and convoluted CFW hack ever.
PS3, PSP and DS were fucking cakewalks compared to this
It's because as shitty as Nintendo's security is, they've still been improving a ton over the years and have learned from the mistakes of past systems.
This could be the last gen of crackable hardware or at least if next gen can be cracked it'll manage to be even more difficult then the 3DS.
The NAND.bin file you get from emunandtool is your emunand backup. Save it on your computer and don't forget to also save your sd card contents on your computer.
Did you uninstall the old CHMM you had before installing this one?
Ok so I have using this guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
I'm using cakes
Now that I've booted into CFW, I can load .cia files through FBI? Do I have to be in pasta or can I just launch the FBI app in the home menu?
Some things I plan to use are
BigBlueMenu (can it be confirmed it's better than FBI?)
CHMM2 (is this compatible with menuhax?)
Blargsnes (do I have better snes emulator choices?)
I'd like the Genesis emulator, how well does it work?
Lastly should I set up Cakes to coolboot emunand before I start setting up .cias or does it not matter?
Thanks for all the help so far.
DS needed a cart though. This shit is 100% free. PSP was similarly convoluted in the early days with pandora batteries. PS3 was a joke once the key went public, literally like installing a normal firmware.
>Install gba game on sysnand
>works like a charm
>install it a gain on emunand so I can play it there instead of going to sysnand
>game doesnt run
what to do
I'll need to switch my sd card to a new one, will I be able to just move the homebrew and the other stuff from the old sd to the other without reinstalling everything from the browserhax?
When trying to install cias, im getting this problem "Database does no exist". Any solutions?
download emunandtool and extract the emunand from your sd card, it should get you a nand.bin, save to computer
save all the contents from old sd card onto computer
use emunandtool and inject that nand.bin to your new sd card and transfer all the contents to your new sd card
ctrl + f database
>sysUpdater is still freezing after nearly fifty tries
getting fed up with your shit sysUpdater
I have bought some legal games on e-shop before
If I want to install them again should I use cia or just go to eshop normally
By the way I also bought smashbros, when it asks me to update itshould I do it or just install acia with the update?
I've re-formatted around 4 times. The first time it installed normally, the second two times it said it was already installed, and I skipped it the last time because I wanted to avoid using menu hax (the only way I could go to homebrew twice in a row)
When rxTools failed ANYWAY I was really despondent then tried cakes, which worked fine.
Now I'm just trying to autoboot cakes and get fbi working so I can install cia files.
Guys I've got everything running smoothly, I just have one last question. How do I install out-of-region cia, do I need anything special for it? I've already installed tons of US cias and I'd rather not have to do it all again if I fuck something up, but I really want to play Rhythm Tengoku
My games are only viewable in data management and they all look like this.
Anyone had this problem before?
Is there a known fix?
I had the exact same problem and some dude told me to do it and it worked...
There's also a way to make the cia itself regionfree so it could have been that your mhx copy was prepared. But don't worry too much, yes there are ways to circumvent region block and they are not difficult.
Alright thanks for the clarification, family
Imagine smashing your head into a brick wall until it breaks
That's how it feels like on n3ds
after formatting my sd and only putting on the tools needed it worked 2nd try tho, make sure to make a backup firsr
Can I download updates for the CIA games I installed?
I can access the eshop but there are no available updates for the titles I installed.
i guess i'm braindead. after the autoboot i have to press the designated button.
now, off installing some mhx CIA and hopefully, don't get disappointed
Sorry, it did worked. Thank you very much !
>Mom has 3DS
>found out you can downgrade and get free games somehow

You're fucking lucky I love you lady.
I INSTALLED A THEME USING THE CHMM2 CIA AND THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENED
THE ONE AT >>127820395
I think I might just give up
Everytime I install the cias to downgrade it just gives me an error upon the reboot after installation. Used different sysupdaters, readded the files several times, same results, everything works up to this point. I tried taking the SD card out when it reboots, nothing.
I'm just sick of recovery mode resetting at this point, I don't know if I'm just unlucky or what, it will just not work for me. I'm on old 3ds using Ironhax as an entry point. I don't think using another entry point will make a difference. Was there a specific timing for taking out the SD card? I've only started doing it since there's no other options at this point.
All I want to do is play MHX, I got Menuhax installed and I'm stuck on how the fuck do I check check these files to make sure I got the right things. Please spoonfeed me a guide a moron can follow.
You need to set cakes to load into Emunand, if when you do that you still have FBI installed, you're good.
I didn't but i figured out a clever work around by myself so if anyone else has this problem, install FBI into sysnand then go into emunand manager and clone sysnand to emunand, then boot into sysnand again with pasta and unpar with tiny format, worked like a charm
you need different files for it
Took me a good hour to find those when i had the same problem.
If that wasnt your problem then im afraid i dont know
This has to be the most exhausting experience I ever had installing CFW. I think I spent over 5-6 hours installing everything!But now I think I'm finished.
Does anyone else not care about piracy that much but instead backing up all their physical 3ds carts to their 3ds? It's nice to be able to switch to different games to play without manually ejecting carts anymore.
im using this guide for n3ds and im on this step for booting into emunand
4. Then start rxTools from the HBL. Press a key at the end of the data installation to boot into your emunand.
when i run rxtools it would just give me a black screen, anyone know how to solve this?
Please spoonfeed me, do I absolutely NEED to have rxtools 3 for this? http://3dshomebrew.blogspot.ca/2015/12/tutorial-how-to-fix-emunand-error-022.html
And also can I just format it from system settings like another anon said in the last thread instead of using gateway launcher to reformat it?
Browserhax isn't automatic on 9.2
When you scan the QR code it will load a page that looks blank but there is a slider at the top left.
Move that slider to the right and it should load HBL. This might take a few tries.
Where ya looking friend?
I'm sure the first one is on there somewhere
There is no way for me to know this, this is the first time I've ever done this and every guide just says to download from the page and it's not there.
It's obviously really simple but I'm missing it.
Google "retroarch 3ds nightly"
CatSFC Plus, CatSFC, PocketSnes for Snes. That's in order of best sound -> fastest
Genesis Plus GX is only option for Genesis
FCeumm for NES
Gambatte for gameboy stuff but the sound is lame
Take a risk and download one of the files then look around the folder.
Are you sure this is for you? If you can't even look or test for something yourself this may not be for you.
Literally zero links and anything even semi related dosn't have it there either. I can't download if they don't give me an option to download it.
I don't have a gateway I need this for something else.
It's like it doesn't exist.
I've been doing that. I've got emuNAND/cakes set up I'm just very frustrated about how little explanation went into how to get this one fucking file.
That's what I did so i think so.
Also dont forget to to go into >select patches
And select "disable signiture checks" and "enable emunand"(if you have it set up)
The emunand one is critical, and im pretty sure the signature checks one is too but i haven't been brave enough to check
I'm having a hell of a time getting sliderhax to work on my o3ds (8.1.0). Do I have to reboot it each time it fails, or can I just launch the browser again? I'm at about 20 tries and 5 reboots and counting.
Seriously considering doing the upgrade to 10.3 -> 9.2 just so I don't have to deal with this shit. Talk me out of it, lads
How do I get eshop access again once I have got an emuNand, CFW and unlinked my nands?
Apparently that's the reason my games aren't playable, because I tried to go onto the eShop and it threw an error.
I dunno. Genesis ran full speed w perfect sound on my n3ds even when I was only launching it from homebrew (no kernel access).
The gameboy ones are where it's worth trying to figure out injection etc since Gambatte's sound is way too crunchy
things don't look too good. I put both files in both the root and cakes folder(I didn't know where they're suppose to go exactly, just one of those two). and I'm still getting the keyX error. I have both disable signature checks and enable emunand. the reason the keyx error pops up is when I have emunand enabled.
Any other ideas I should try?
1) Backup emunand and backup its folder in sdmc:/Nintendo 3DS/ (easier method: add a _ or something at the end of the folder so you don't have to copy it off your SD card, OR cut/paste it to the root of your SD card)
2) Go in emunand system settings, pick system format
3) Let it do its thing
4) Log into your NNID on newly formatted emunand
5) Restore emunand backup and put its folder back in sdmc:/Nintendo 3DS/
this worked for me on o3ds, it's from gbatemp
It's this error, if it makes a difference
this works every fucking time for me unless I forget to close a background application before launching web browser
it helped me. HANS seems pointless though. Once i got my nnid linked i could just use the multipatcher and then go straight to eshop without having to open HBL.
Big blue menu/title manager installed
Can I skip FBI installation?
Hey guys, I need some help please
I'm trying to install homebrew via browserhax on my o3ds, latest firmware. I seem to do all the process correctly, got the boot in my sd card, set my theme to default, initialized saved data, deleted cookies and history, and everything it says on the guide. The thing is that it freezes on red or yellow flashes, sometimes the "unable to continue" message shows off. I've tried to do this around 80 times. Anyone has any idea?
Yes, right under "Getting CIA file informations...." it has a string of numbers ending in .cia and its slightly garbled. If its frozen at this point is there anything I can do? Is it safe to turn it off?
I posted this in the last thread, but if you have a game cartridge in, take it out. I kept getting that error, then I took out the game that was in my 3ds, and it worked on the very next try. Might've been a coincidence, but hey, it might work.
When will this thread stop being flooded with simple fucking questions, or even worse, discussing the
When will anyone in this thread learn about google, or better yet, how to read?
No ideas left i'm afraid, that fixed it for me.
I can only give advice on what worked out for me.
I don't think emunand is -necessary- but when i was doing some limited testing i noticed if I install to sysnand and happen to not boot into homebrew launcher with menuhax, the installed programs would start popping in and out of existence and this would be permanent. emunand fixed this for me.
can you guys help me out? followed this guide http://pastebin.com/QhDq5iyW
you literally can't hard brick with that provided you got it from p95 of that one thread
if you got that one, just shut it off and try again, either you're softbricked and can update or you're not and you can just do it again
So I finally got a 32gb SD Card for my brand new downgraded O3DS. Can I just copy and paste files over or do I need to do something else?
Also, do I need to keep the firmware files on my SD Card after I've successfully downgraded or have they lost their use?
I FUCKING LOVE YOU.
Now I, in theory, have no problems.
But I'm curious as to why whenever I installed a theme with CHMM2 it made the console ignore ctrboot, bringing me back to sysnand and installing the theme there even when my nands are unlinked.
Well, considering both nands have different firmwares and also seeing how creating a folder in emu doesn't make it appear in sys tells me they're effectively unlinked, just weird.
Thanks again anon, I owe one, big time.
Downloading them games at godspeed
I still need to downgrade
So the guide I'm using says:
>The last useful thing to do is to setup coldbooting into emuNAND with ctrbootmanager. This is a handy tool similar to GRUB if you're familiar with GNU/Linux.
>To start with, go to your sysNAND and make sure you've loaded a theme. I touched on this further up, but you've probably formatted sysNAND since then, so you'll have to do it again. Once this data has been created, get back to the homebrew launcher via the browserhax url.
>formatted sysNAND since then, so you'll have to do it again
>do it again
But I JUST formatted and installed menuhax!
Why do I have to format again!?
Is this a typo?
What the fuck
I have literally no idea as to why Xenoblade Chronicles isn't working for me then. NTR + the language plugin isn't working, updating emunand isn't working.
Maybe I just downloaded a bad .cia. I hope that's the case.
Ctrbootmanager gives me a "couldn't load ARM9" error
I noticed that it tries to load something from rxTools/sys/code.bin, a file which I do not have. Could this be the problem?
So waitfags and scaredfags, was it that bad?
What you playing?
Every time I try to do browserhax the bottom screen turns red and i have to turn the system off. Can you not do browserhax in Emunand? Just trying to get FBI on my home screen (n3dsxl)
No, because European devices need the "E" firmware.
There is literally no reason to do this. That will not downgrade you to 4.x, only your settings option to get you into rxTools, which you can already get into.
There is nothing wrong with it. Get the latest nightly, which is some shit like December 5th, and you'll be fine.
Like literally hundreds of people have said before you, you will probably have to try it several times with different entry points.
There is no reason to do this. Pick one or the other.
Gigantic retard here. So before I downgrade, I am confused about which update files to use.
In the GBAtemp thread, with the update files, they mention "This is the pack to downgrade your OLD 3DS from 9.3U/10.3U to 9.2U with the new sysUpdater 0.4.2b (https://mega.co.nz/#%21dMphAQAY%21gbbrBzpamVaxFmGapT6lN4cvJTKgr1hYOpN ypcVBxvs) (BE CAREFUL ^^)"
Am I ok to use these files to downgrade if I am using julian20 (libkhax)?
Just for curiosity, anyone knows why I had this problem?
JUST AS I WAS WRITING IT HAPPENED AGAIN
Whenever I install a theme in emunand it affects sysnand as well WHEN THEY'RE UNLINKED and makes the console ignore ctrboot, booting me right up at emunand.
Can someone test these? Just converted them and they work as far as I can tell. (should be US afaik. pretty sure they're not region patched or anything)
rhythm thief is being uploaded now and has about half an hour left
>you will probably have to try it several times with different entry points.
Different anon, I've tried for around 2+ hours on 10.3 using the browser & sysupdater. Menuhax does not install (I assume I can't).
What other entry points can I use? Thanks
OK, so I upgraded from 2.6 to 3.0/nightly, and now when I turn on my 3ds I get the ctrboot menu thing, which is good!
BUT, when I select rxTools from that menu it gives me "installation failed!" despite already having installed previously and just won't let me load rxmode (which I have already gotten into once with this version of rxtools)...
Also thanks to the guy who posted info last thread about switching over and getting this stuff set up.
Menuhax can and will install, and if it isn't you are doing something wrong. I will spell it out for you nice and easy. Browserhax is supposedly bad for downgrading.
To use menuhax
>Go to your theme options, and set it to No Theme, or any Theme and back.
>Choose menuhax installer
>Choose install, then hit B, then hit start. Once you're in the HBL again, hit start to reboot.
Now when you reboot, hold the L button in order to go straight into the HBL, or you can launch settings, hold the L button while closing settings to go into HBL.
Successfully downgraded 03ds,
Is the second pastebin actually a good one for installing cfw? I see so many different guides for cfw, and most seeme to use rxtools. Is cakes actually that much better or is it easy for retards?
I've been using this so far and seems like the cleanest guide, https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-more-or-less-catch-all-tutorial.407080/
Everyone will tell you that cakes is better with no actual reason why they say so. They're both pretty much the same and interchangeable. If you wanna install off-region games you'll have to go through an extra step with cakes.
Here's a fairly simple rxTools guide.
The browserhax page says:
"Due to the *hax payloads, the exploits hosted here are only usable on systems with system-version >=v9.0 with the system web-browser installed."
Could this explain why I'm having absolutely zero luck with it on 8.1?
I only tried to install Menuhax twice. I have no themes enabled (at least in the default 3ds menu) since the console was restored when I switched to n3ds.
I'll recopy everything and try again.
anything legit can be updated or redownloaded
any cia you installed can also be updated as long as the regio is the same than your console (ex: Jpn cia on US 3DS = no Y update, us 3DS and cia = y update go!)
what if you try launching into rxtools from browser?
you'll need to make an image of the old SD card and restore that image on your new one. copying files won't work since emunand is on a different partition.
otherwise, clone emunand on old card, move emunand.bin to pc. insert new sdcard, format for emunand. move emunand.bin to new sdcard, clone emunand.bin to emunand. then copy files from old sd to new sd.
just got a new huge sd card. do i have to format it to fat32 then follow the setting up emunand stuff for it or can i literally just copy and paste the one i already have set up with rxtools/emunand etc?
>32gb sd card is "Arriving Jan 13 - Jan 15"
to get ready for that, I can use gparted to copy emunand partition and the normal sd card save data and stuff over to the new card after formatting FAT32, right?
Gee whizz anon i dont know. If only words would convey information so people can absorb it and understand it.
of course ya dingus.
if you did it correctly your emunand will be a carbon copy of your 3ds before you fiddled with it (minus being downgraded) everything should be exactly the same only your sysnand will be like a fresh new system
Im wondering if anyone has a anwser to this.
I bought a used 3ds a few days back that was formatted, after i got the hack running i decided to go into the eshop to upodate a few cia's and i see the owners stuff still there. how do i still have access?
If you did not reboot, you are in emuNAND
Changing a theme in an unlinked emuNAND will certified not affect or break anything in sysNAND. You are either not unlinked, or you are not in emuNAND when you change your theme.
Cakes is harder for retards, especially one as paranoid and retarded as yourself. Use rxTools unless you are willing to start using google for things when you can't figure stuff out.
New xorpad for every game.
Well you should've backed everything up so it should be a non-issue if it doesn't work. However, a CFW will just mirror sysNAND when you first start out, so there is no reason why it shouldn't be there anymore.
Do not even think about installing menuhax on emunand. Use the cia HBL file.
Google fore simple 3ds to cia converter
that is not entirely true. you have to install some cias to sysnand if you want to regain access to the eshop and some online stuff on n3ds.
However generally speaking yes, unless you know what you're doing install shit on emunand.
>what if you try launching into rxtools from browser?
I still get installation failed with "Failed to load NATIVE_FIRM: 4"
Which is funny because this worked and installed earlier, but now AFTER installing it I keep getting that error every time I try to access rxTools at all.
Anybody got any ideas?
Cakes is asking for a keyX file on my New3DS.
I'm thinking I should just switch to another CFW, what are my options? rxtools looks like the next most common but I remember reading it has issues on N3DS
How long does this take?
The bars just keep going off the screen. It's a nightmare.
This worked. I did it just to be safe after recopying and now Menuhax is successfully installed.
Thanks for replying. I thought since no theme was used it would have been fine to use.
Well, I asked earlier if I should update to 10.3 then downgrade to 9.2 and some anons told me to just stick with 8.1 for installing rxtools.
BUT, I'd need an entry point, and I don't own OoT or Cubic Ninja. I'll probably just upgrade to 10.3 now while I still can and do the downgrade, unless someone wants to shout "NO STOP I HAVE A BETTER WAY" at me in the next 15 minutes
installed rhythm heaven plus cia on emunand with fbi
play game, make save, all good
quit game, open browser, close browser, back on emunand but game gone from home screen
reboot system into emunand, game returns as a present, save still exists.
already unlinked nnid.
any ideas what?
I'm >>127826972 (You)
I'm formatting my sysnand with the SD out again to make sure they're unlinked.
On other side, I'm 100% sure I'm installing the them when I'm in emunand because that's where rxTools boots me to and that's where I have my games installed.
So I'm working on downgrading.
I haven't upgraded my 3DS in a fucklong time. (I'm on 9.9)
Since it wants me to upgrade to use browserhax, am I safe to do so? I've been trying to figure out if 10.4 is out but mixed results
It wasn't actually formatted, congrats on finding a dumb seller.
Use rxTools unless you know what you're doing, or are confident that you can find out what to do when you don't.
It takes some time. Next time use a tool called EMUNAND9, it is much better for backing up your NANDs.
Yes, google it.
Reboot and try again. Sliderhax doesn't work all of the time.
Either one. Better yet, both, since they each are good for different things.
Assuming you aren't retarded and backed up your emuNAND, restore your emuNAND backup, and copy your files back over from the old SD card. Otherwise back up your emuNAND with your current one.
It should work, but you can update to 10.3 if you want. 10.4 is not out yet, and you'll know when it is because the 12 year olds who shitpost here asking retarded questions will not understand that they're shit out of luck.
If some anon can end with my doubts here.
Just installed menuhax and that coldboot shit.
Now I don't get the next instructions and want to it clear up.
1. Rename the "boot.3dsx" in /root into "bhbl.3dsx"
2. Move "boot.3dsx" from ctrbootmanager to /root
3. Move boot.cfg from ctrbootmanager to /root.
Am I correct?
Any cia GBA emulators that an o3ds will run better with, since it would have access to both processors now? The one in HBL ran like shit.
If not, it's cool. I'd rather buy a GBA than risk screwing up what I have.
I wasn't trying to reply.
I was just trying to make a post, the thing is that I find it convenient to use the quoting function to make posts. I just forgot to delete the quote number from my post.
why is go.gateway-3ds.com not working on the browser for my o3ds? all it shows after failing to load the page is a message: "An error has occurred. Please save your data in any... etc."
