-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.
1st for a few games to try. pls test rhythm thief while I wait for another SD card.
if you have any .3ds files that haven't been converted to .cia yet, just ask and I'll give it a go.
>want to try this out
>don't know how to unlink account
Is there a reliable way to do this besides backing up the SD content on the PC? I don't want to lose my Club Nintendo shit or my WiiU stuff.

What do I do when I get this while trying to install FBI?
i installed a cia on emunand and played the game just fine. went back to homescreen and game still there.
but when i launch the browser, when i close it the game disappears from homescreen.
when i reboot back into emunand, game re-adds as a present.
anyone know why this might be?
Welp, l've been trying to do this guide http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji but all the download link have either a 3DS folder or a 3ds folder. Are they supposed to be the same? what about the other files on the FBI rar? do they also go into the cia folder l made in the root of my SD?
Also, after "restoring the corrupted data" on the System Settings, l go into the internet browser but when l try to go to http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax_auto.php it just stays there, it doesnt open the Hombrew Menu nor does it crash.
Please help this computer illiterate.
>tfw successful N3DS downgrade to 9.2
Okay, what's the best solution for pirating games & DLC, and running homebrew?
Can I not install homebrew from the QR code I used the first time?
I've been trying it and it isn't working. Just a blank page now that I'm on 9.2
>order 64GB SD card for 3DS
>gets here today
>go to format it
>try to format it again to see if that helps
>changes to 992KB

>finish doing all that shit it on my o3DS
>feel good about it
>about to try on my n3ds
>realize the process is way different
>all the knowledge I gained is useless
i thought i did that already. sysnand is stock and emunand is customized.
I can just pop my SD card out, format sysnand via settings and I'll be fine, right?
or should i backup SD and format with the card still in the system?
Can someone help me here?
I recently just got onto homebrew, and am using the web browser
However, when ever I use the method, it just goes into a yellow screen and tells me "an error has occurred".
How can I fix this?
tfw don't know what NAND means
So just take my SD card out and do a "format system memory" and I should be fine? If i relink after putting it back in it'll be fixed?
>ask julian himself if i should hold off until the weekend in case he plans on releasing a new version with updated libkhax or something
>tells me to wait for ktm
how is ktm even going to work anyway? is it just calling someone else's sysupdater and acting as a frontend, is it going to be a modified sysupdater with some other shit changed, or is it actually going to be its own thing?
Clear cookies, reboot, tap again. Repeat until it works.
I guess the important thing is that I can downgrade now and worry about the rest later. Or is there a chance of softbricking through rxtools and christ knows what else I have to install?
so let me get this right, I can spoof ntr to use the eshop and download my games and updates?
Once I do that lets say I download the cia for doc characters on smash bros on 9.5 n3ds.
Any chance getting ban for having the dlc and not paying for it? If so I'll just buy it now
NAND is the internal memory of your 3DS, like the hard drive in your computer. All of the system files and firmware are stored on it.
Using hacks, we can create a copy of this NAND on a partition on the SD card used by the 3DS, and then point the 3DS to this to convince it that it's the real NAND. This is called emuNAND. CFW installs hacks on the emuNAND to allow you to access features such as installing custom CIAs and running unsigned programs while still being able to be on the latest firmware.
Because of the way 3DS IDs work, you have to format either the system NAND or the emuNAND in order to unlink them. Usually you do this with the system NAND, since most of your apps are going to be installed on emuNAND anyways.

Have anyone tried to install Xenoblade on a o3ds?
Hey guys, so after I installed several games, I decided to unlink the nands, but to my surprise my games are nowhere to be found now, BUT they're still taking space on the SD card, I guess I'll need to delete and reinstall them.
Just want to know how can I safely delete the installed games without messing with any important file for the 3DS or the CFW.
i had done that already, and had 2 in the Nintendo 3DS folder already - one I knew was my original, and the second was the new.
oh well, fuck it. backing up sdcard again, wiping sysnand and going through setup once more.
Uh I think I downgraded my 3DS but why doesn't anything happen when I put my SD card in it? It works perfectly fine with the SD card taken out. What did I fuck up? I just ran sysUpdater and it's been nothing but black after it told me it was rebooting.
Did I fuck up? Fuck. Are all my past games lost?
I don't need recommendations
But please where the fuck do I get games that isn't some spic adscumming blog
Do I just have to dig through the archives for mega links or something
try going into the menuhax manager and selecting the option to boot into emunand
i think it's option 2, so to boot into sysnand you would have to turn on the 3ds while holding L or just go system settings and exit
Read the bottom where it says the requirements.
You edgy little arrogant fuck stain
Does cakes work about the same as rxtools?
In that I boot into emunand using it, then use FBI or equivalent to install CIAs, then run those from emunand?
can I do the same thing where I inject FBI into the health & safety app?
latest commit to FBI increases CIA install speed significantly
You reminded me I wanted to play Umihara Kawase, thanks!
Also, epic dogfightan.
999 is in my pending list of DS, but that list is huge and right now I'm giving priority to anything that doesn't take a long time to finish
9.2 here. I'm gonna be at work, so I won't hive time to mess around further until I get back. I did put RetroArch on it though. I can still dick around with Homebrew Launcher through the browser like previously?
>bigbluemenu installed on EmuNAND and download cias of the game
How do I do any of this?
I have installed MHX but when I boot it up it gives me an error message, like the one it gives when it softbricks, and forces me to turn it off
It doesn't give me any errors when I install it, and I installed it with both FBI and then with BBM, with the same results.
Since it's a Japanese game and Paper Jam runs fine, it might be because Cakes doesn't support region free, but NTR does, yet it still gives me the same error.
Could it be a corrupted .cia?
I'm using the prepatched one on 3dsiso
What the fuck is wrong with rxTools Nightly.
All it does is be stuck at this page without doing shit. I can't even access my emuNAND for the first time. I'm using the Dec 5th build, are all of them like this?
My folders are suppose to be destroyed right? I turned the 3DS on without the memory card, put it back in, changed the theme, and everything I had before popped back up. That was actually the right order correct? I'm just nervous if I fucked up or not even though it seemingly looks fine.
Yeah well it doesn't say it's for 9.2 and it doesn't tell you to not check the fucking hash yourself when someone is nice enough to send you a convenient link for it and then call it sketchy.
You are literally retarded. I hope you brick your 3DS, faggot.
Try these files?
Do you have CtrBootManager? It usually does well with this command.
title = "CakesFW";
path = "/Cakes.dat";
Installing Browserhax was easier than I thought. Downgrading and all the other stuff is going to be hell I bet.
not 100% sure since i'm not at home right now but there should be an easy way to test it
if you can delete fbi off your sd card and have it still work, then it's resident on nand and you'd have to reinject it
if deleting it off the card makes it not load, it's reading from the sd card and you can just update what's on the sd card
i'm pretty sure it's loading it from the sd card, i believe the injection just sets health and safety to read from the file on the sd card
Yeah thats how i've been doing it.
FBI has it's own app though, i dont know about this health and safety thing
It shouldn't be if you're o3ds and have some patience.
Make sure you run sysupdater through menuhax and not browserhax though.
If it works that's fine but menuhax seems to help people out more.
If I downgrade and install stuff on my current SD card and need to upgrade to a larger card, do I have to jump through any hoops? Or can I just copy the folders from the old one into the new one?
so question for anyone who knows shit about compiling for 3ds
is it possible to just compile a basic program that calls libkhax and then loads the latest fbi as a payload to get the same benefits that shiny_banana's 10.3 fbi mod got while not being a pain in the ass to load since libkhax and libsu have both been updated significantly since he wrote that?
if so, i might have a project this saturday
You're more retarded thinking you can offend someone on this site.
lol fuck off
I'm not even that guy so don't any fucking ideas
>i'm pretty sure it's loading it from the sd card, i believe the injection just sets health and safety to read from the file on the sd card
Nope, injection actually edits the NAND itself, putting FBI where Health and Safety is. You can do it manually by editing a NAND dump.
Wrong. Get another CFW if you don't want 2.6.
I think don't use the firmkey.bin. I guess your 3DS needs to generate that file itself.
Yes it can do that like this:
title = "CakesFW";
path = "/Cakes.dat";
offset = "0x12000";
as your first entry in boot.cfg
PLEASE, does anyone have the uncensored Bravely Default CIA that they can upload to MEGA? The only link on 3dsiso is to a slow as fuck multi-upload site, with an estimated 9 hour download
I think I royally fucked my cfw instalation, when I open rxtools and shit I can't use FBI or anything and in my homescreen I have a zelda game and cave story, should I just update back to 10.3 and format my sd to restart or can I salvage this?
question, can i have NTR on o3ds?
what does NTR do exactly?
are there any special combinations i need to know for it?
the gbatemp page tells what it does but not how, neither does the github page
It's actually the first link if you google B99ADF0ADB279712367C06EB83BA9AE6 but I'll spoonfeed. Just this once.
>Options to boot to sysNAND (for GBA/DSi) and emuNAND up to 10.2 on old 3ds, or 9.5 on new 3ds.
Thought this is what it meant. Guess I'm just retarded
just restore the nand backup you should have made initially as soon as you downgraded
alternatively, if it's just your emunand that's fucked up, just format emunand and start over
check the sticky, there are other cia sites.
Personally i'd rather people use torrents.
You can resume a torrent download if you want to have a sleep or something.
It's an alternative .cia loader, i dont know if there's any benefit to it, i think it's called bigbluemenu or something.
>can I have NTR on o3ds?
>what does NTR do exactly?
>NTR is loads ARM11 kernel patches to your system. Download the .cia and the ntr.bin, put the latter on the root. You get screenshots, cheats, loading edited romfs easily without repacking, debugger, savestates (this only works until you close the game at the moment) and preventing the New 3DS from underlocking.
>are there any special combinations i need to know for it?
If you mean button combinations, just press X+Y once you have loaded it.
some people like bigbluemenu better, that's whatever
some people think bigbluemenu is better because they did something dumb in fbi and blamed it on the program instead of themselves, they're retarded
backup nand should fix everything afaik provided you made it right after you downgraded and before doing anything else
it's literally a snapshot of your system at the time it was taken, only difference would be what's on your sd card
I got this black block after using Tinyformat.cia
I thin the first time failed so I got that. Anyone know how to delete it?
No, we don't.
You install them like any other game. If your NANDs are unlinked, go to the HBL in sysnand, launch MiniPasta, go to the HBL in sysnand again, launch FBI, install it again. This is all it takes.
fbi can delete cias if you can identify what the cia associated with it is, which you can do by identifying all the system cias and all the cias associated with games, they're all listed out there somewhere, probably 3dsbrew wiki or something
Browserhax is really fucking shit. Follow this and if you're lucky it might work. http://pastebin.com/BqETPf9V
Homebrew apps go in individual folders inside the 3ds folder. Don't overthink this.
What about injecting FBI into sysNAND's health and safety. Any real downside to doing that?
>Failed to get CIA file info!
All the shit is in the updates folder which is in the root of my SD card, anything else it could be?
That's what I've been doing, N3DSXL as well. Got black screens about 20 times before getting the text. When it does work the text will appear almost right away so don't wait too long on the black screens.
It's because I read something about the eShop needing to be launched at least once before installing CIAs. Will I need that to set up emunand? Or would the eShop create the savedata even if I was prompted to update?
"Failed to open theme extdata with extdataID=0x000002cd,..."
What's up? Trying to get menuhax going on 9.2 but this is my error.
>Any real downside to doing that?
There shouldn't be any, but I've seen many people having a hard time trying to inject it. I don't know how to fix it and I've never looked into it enough. MiniPasta is just faster and easier. I literally launch MiniPasta from themehax and then it just reloads the HBL so I can run FBI.
alright I just ordered a New 3ds which will arrive in a few weeks. I hear people freaking out over "the 11th update".
Am I fucked if I don't start this CFW process before the 11th or something? Does the system force update or require a Nintendo server to access or something weird?
Also... do you still need a 3ds flash card to play 3ds games or will the custom firmware support launching them from SD card?
>Every sysupdater leads to a softbrick
>even tried using 9.0 firmware
>only way around it is to format the system
When will someone make a version that works?
I have a 4.4 O3DS with emunand and a shitton of games installed on it.
I want to update it to 9.2 and use themehax for boot into emunand.
To do this, will I need to reinstall all of my CIAs and lose my save data?
Do I unlink NANDs before i update to 9.2? Does it matter?
With Unlinked NANDs can I still play GBA games within emunand?
Do I need to do anything special to preserve DS profile exploit before updating sysnand to 9.2?
Finally, what do I use to update sysnand to 9.2? I don't have access to retail carts but I suppose I could get one eventually if that is the only way.
First time I went to change theme, didn't do shit. I went and tried changing the theme to a different color, then it worked.
weird enough, I did that and it didn't work. Guess I need to change the theme though
I just got my SD card reader for my PC and I'm going to try downgrading my O3DS tonight. Any last tips before I start?
I have themehax installed in sysnand, when I launch MiniPasta it tries to load the Home Menu and loads the HBL instead, as it is supposed to. From there I launch the FBI .3dsx.
okay... so this browserhax relies on a remote connection to a nintendo server OR is it based on firmware?
past the 11th browser hack will not be an option no matter what firmware if you haven't installed it already?
Alright nice. Couldn't remember if I had unlinked them earlier but it seems I did.
Now this may be a dumb question but is it possible to back up your sysNAND in the event that it gets updated for some reason?
read the sticky.
Seriously it's the best guide i could find.
I actually tried setting this shit up from wololo and GBAtemp guides then i thought to check my humble video game general and everything fell into place.
i can't give any definite answers but i don't think you'll lose any of your cias, i mean you wouldn't lose installed games when updating firmware normally
other than that i can't help
Browserhax will always be around for 9.2 and earlier. After the 11th you're C U C K E D on anything later.
You have to use it to install menuhax, then you'll be fine on 10.3 (assuming you never update past that point)
So i've installed emunand, setup ctr and just inject fbi via rxtools. When i want to load emunand am i supposed to load rxTools holding L and select RXMode and load emunand, or should it just load when i press A on RXTools in ctr?
Also if i change rxtools versions do i need to reinject fbi?
this image and this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pl2X1CwDoU
is all the things you need famalam
So I just finished setting everything up with my O3DS, apparently a success.
Then I updated the emuNAND's 3DS version to the latest, and my custom blue color I set in MenuHax disappeared.
So my question is: If I change my theme through EmuNAND, does that break MenuHax? Should I use MenuHax to change my theme from now on always?
You might be fine on 10.3 if you mess with DNS settings and dont turn on your 3ds until someone else figures it out.
I could get homebrew launcher working on my 9.9 n3ds because i turned off the console witht he wifi off, turned on the wifi and quickly navigated to the browserhax before the update check got me.
So i think there will be ways, but it will be a while before it's this fool proof again.
Anybody have any issues updating emunand to 9.5 on a Japanese N3DS?
I got an error midway through it but it didn't brick the emunand or anything. Tried it a second time and it continued to update until another error occurs again saying some particular file caused an error.
I deleted the file causing the problem then tried the update again. It installed about 6 more files and said the update completed successfully. My emunand system settings say i'm on RXE 9.5 or whatever but I don't think it really installed properly. Not seeing any issues though.
I have the N3DS 9.5 Japan firmware before you ask whether or not it's the O3DS firmware
so basically don't even bother with 10.3 hardware?
I also keep hearing you can't run .3ds games you have to make .cia files out of them. Is this cumbersom or bricking risk?
>Golden MM N3DS XL
>Everything installed and emunand on 9.5, access to eshop and nnid linked, friend list intact
>Everything set up so i can transfer my cias and don't have to open the SD card back again anytime soon

>No errors anywhere, occasionally freezes during menu hax on boot which is fine, i rarely shut down my DS completely anyway
After a test run with an Old 3DS that worked out flawlessly this one gave me a lot more trouble. I'm tired but satisfied. Also i feel a little empty now. This was a fun ride....
Hahaha, sure man.
I'm a super genius and hacker so it was easy for me.
But you might have trouble downloading from the extensive selection of already cracked .cias that even work on old firmwares and wrong regions and just installing them.
Successful 8.1 -> 10.3 -> 9.2 on this o2ds
If anyone's curious, the sysUpdater.3dsx I used has an md5sum of "ed184b863d7895e751c89e63d10fe794"
It's an older-ish "Tux" build. I downloaded it late on the first day of the happening. It seemed to work better on my 2ds than the version I grabbed from the gbaTemp guide here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-more-or-less-catch-all-tutorial.407080/
This same .3dsx file has successfully downgraded both a 10.3 US n3dsXL and a 10.3 US o2ds.
What if I use the theme manager or the custom theme option from the MenuHax application on Homebrew? Does that break everything?
I already set up autoboot, and I'm afraid of breaking that breaking MenuHax will completely blow everything up.
can I change the RxTools boot screen? God it pisses me off
so after FBI injection and creating an emunand, should I format my sysnand or my emunand? (To unlink nands)
Im planning on updating my emunand to 10.3 (since im on an O3DS) to get online sm4sh but I'm wondering if any problems will rise from this.
also, if I format my sysnand, should I backup my emunand or my sysnand?
Hello, Im confused here about installing my cias.
When i boot my n3ds, it boots automatically into homebrew and then into rxtools(EmuNAND).
If I want to install the cias into emuNAND I got to enter the homebrew from emuNAND with the QR code?
Or do I install my cias from the homebrew channel that loads up when booting my system?
And do I have to enter cakes before entering FBI in any case?
wut. If you have 10.3 hardware NOW that's fine. Get menuhax installed and you can take as long as you like to downgrade. It's still a little better do it now though.
10.3 only gets cucked after the 11th, when the easiest, free way to hack goes down. You'll still be fine with a cart hack on 10.3 (OoThax, Cubic Ninja), but nobody really knows what 10.4 will bring or how long it will be for another exploit to be this accessible.
Is anyone willing to compile (or has a download link for) the latest FBI as a .cia for me? >>127839991 says it's faster, and I would like to see by how much and report results.
Yes. I think you have to make sure they're the same region as the game, or they won't work.
A better question would be: why should we believe you? Show us that he's lying.
>To do this, will I need to reinstall all of my CIAs and lose my save data?
Not necessarily. You might, if you decide to format the NAND you installed them to, if they're still linked.
>Do I unlink NANDs before i update to 9.2? Does it matter?
It doesn't matter.
>With Unlinked NANDs can I still play GBA games within emunand?
You have to either use rxtools 2.7 or install a modified AGB_FIRM, if I remember correctly.
If they're unlinked, you'll have to install the GBA .cia game to both NANDs. To install it to sysnand just put MiniPasta and FBI in .3dsx fromat in your SD card, launch the HBL from sysnand, launch MiniPasta, get back to the HBL, launch FBI, install the game.
>Do I need to do anything special to preserve DS profile exploit before updating sysnand to 9.2?
Well, you have to either not update MSET or to downgrade it after you have updated.
>Finally, what do I use to update sysnand to 9.2?
Sysupdater, I guess. Read about it.
Yeah, this is me on a 9.2 Cakes n3DS >>127840538
the only problem i've encountered is 3D doesn't work when i first start up, but closing the clamshell and opening it again fixes it every time
This folder haves a wrong structure
Back up everything
format sysnand, i accidentally formatted emunand but had a flash image back up of the sd card so i was good
if you format emu you lose all your cfw shit which is the whole purpose of emu in the first place
I was following the guide above, and I somehow fucked it up now it cold boots into sysnand instead of emunand, how do I get back into menuhax to change the settings?
God damn it. I won't get my N3DS until a couple weeks in the mail.
I have heard about smashhax, the bundle I bought comes with smash bros... does smashhax work on newer versions of the cart?
Ace3ds is literally $11 bucks + $4 chinese 8gb sd and you're pirating for less than $20.
DS games look much better on the original hardware anyways, no black borders or shitty scaling. It doesn't seem to be a huge priority for devs right now.
Restore your nand backup and remove the file again. For whatever reason, it really doesn't like seeing that file and permanently prevents you from updating to 9.5 until you replace EMUNAND with a previous backup
>Does anyone have any info on custom themes?
Well, what do you want to know?
>Whats the risk for trying to get a new theme?
>Anything crucial that I may need to know before installing one?
I don't think there's something like that to tell you, just go ahead.
02/12/2015 wasn't three hours ago, as far as I know
Can anybody help me out here?
I have rxTools working perfectly with the browser. Boots into emunand and everything. However, when I try to boot from the homebrew menu or CTRbootmanager I just get a black screen. I also can't install FBI, through homwbrew or rxTools.
I've done this on 2 other systems and never had this issue.
I tried smashhax and was not successful with it. My system would crash, but it would crash cleanly each time.
I'm a dedicated freetard and Linux is my main OS (posting from it now), so I'm kind of skeptical that it's gonna work for normies. I haven't heard really anyone talking about it, dunno if that's just because GBAkiddies can't into Linux or what.
Your best bet is probably going to be to find someone near you with a 3ds and have them get it hacked NOW, then buy Oot and have them put the special save file on for you. If you already own a 3ds of some sort you can do that too.
I already have rxtools and load it up through browser, what's this whole deal with ctrbootmanager? I don't wanna delete/re-install stuff again but I want a better way to boot up my emunand
>DS games look much better on the original hardware anyways, no black borders or shitty scaling.
The 3DS is the original hardware.
either way, I do agree with you, it does look bad, at least on the 2011 original non-xl 3ds model
and I hope it's better on the others
This is someone else, but I'm PRETTY SURE I unlinked my Nands but is there any way to tell or be sure?
I also wanted to ask, I backed up my SD card full of games I purchased a while ago but I'm not sure how to get them back on, or even just check it again to make sure of what I had. How can I do that?
Reading everything in the OP and everything that the links in the OP link to. At least three times. And lurk the thread. Ask if you don't understand something. And then, maybe, follow the guides.
I need a little help, I succesfully downgraded my 3ds back to 9.2, put everything to start installing the cfw but now I can't start any hax
menu hax input doesn't work anymore, enter the qr for browserhax it loads a white page and don't start that blue menu
Downgrading on a old 3ds
Using the Julian sysupdate and downloaded the update files
Do i just press y for downgrade? Or since the files in the update folder are CIA do i press the hoem button? I assume it's just hit downgrade but I do not want to brick my system
Looks like shit on my n3ds, senpai. The black borders option is okay (and much better ghosting than the DSlite) but the black borders around the screen make it seem even smaller than it actually is, like a weird trick of perception or something.
Anyways maybe it's just because I already had a DS cart and played through most of the games I wanted to. If you haven't yet, a $20 cart is almost certainly worth it.
Apparently the n3ds has a better scaling algorhythm, but it still looks like poo to me. If you're the kind who doesn't mind bilinear filtering on emulators than it will look fine to you. I'm an integer-scale, sharp pixels autist.
Anyone else having issues getting the prepatched monster hunter x from google drive to work with cakes + ntr? I keep getting the hold down power button to turn off sort of error. Other japanese games load just fine.
When booting cakes there was an option "select patches" I just selected both of those.
I had to get FBI installed on emunand first and that was a bit of an adventure, i could explain that to you if it seems you've fucked up the emunand like i did.
They're all exploits used to get into the homebrew launcher. Menuhax is installed by already having a way into the HBL. Ironhax is as well. Browserhax doesn't. Homebrew lets you run unsigned software, such as emulators.
None of those are cfws. They are all entry points into userland homebrew, meaning we can run our own programs on the 3ds but cannot pirate.
However, someone made a sysupdater mod that takes advantage of the memchunkhax kernel exploit, which lets us downgrade to a lower 9.2 firmware, giving us access to CFW and piracy
Emulators if you dip your toes in, FULL PIRACY if you dive all the way in. You basically have to dip your toes in NOW if you want to swim in the pool because Nintendo's putting up some extra gates on the 11th.
update NOW to latest firmware.
change your theme once, then put it back to no theme
"smea homebrew" -> I'm feeling lucky. Download "starter kit" put it on your SD card
then "yellows8 browserhax". scan the QR code. once you're in homebrew menu, go to "menuhax installer". Run it. You can now hold L before turning on your console to get into the homebrew menu (can install emulators, also programs that will get you deeper towards piracy)
That's the urgent part. Everything else you have time with.
I can use it. What's your situation?
Do you have FBI already? If so, put it in whatever folder you want, launch FBI, install the game and then launch it from the Home Menu.
CIA is kind of like an installer pack, which you can install with FBI or Dev Menu. You can delete the cia after it installs because it gets installed to the nintendo 3ds folder.
Use fbi or DEV menu to uninstall too, and use savedatafiler to manage your saves
>download Bravely Default from link someone posted here to see what the fuss about the game was about all those months ago
>finally finish the download after having to leave it downloading for almost 24 hours because shit internet
>open readme file from the rar to get this:
This CIA has not been Firmware Spoofed for use in CFW
This CIA has not had its Region Locking removed
This CIA's original region is USA
Is there really nothing I can do about this?
Just got my 3ds's piratemaxed out. I've got the taste for blood in my mouth now, I need more.
Is now a good time to buy a wii u? Is there going to be a bunch of "you need x and x firmware" or can I just walk into Best Buy and walk out with something pirate-ready?
please please PLEASE help me, is there anyway to get in the homebrew channel after downgrading?
is that dbs thing? because in my nintendo 3ds folder there are 3 folders with lots of letters, do I change dbs in all of them?
I booted my system, now im on the purple screen.
So first I continue to PastaCFW right?
or to HomebrewMenu and enter pastacfw there? It's confusing now.
Can you help me with installing FBI on emuNAND?
You have to edit boot.cfg to load the proper file name for the homebrew exploit.
Make sure it's a 4 character file name, like fuck shit or cunt, so you can set up the homebrew channel later on
So i'm installing DLC 2.7 MB and it's taking a loooong time
buying it would have been faster i guess but the card and region bs whatever how long does it take to install a game? I'm wondering
O3ds btw on FBI should i use blue menu something ?
I copied everything on my SD card before I started messing around with shit. I'm about to run EmuNAND9 which I believe formats my card if I'm not mistaken. Will I be able to later drag and drop my save files/games back when I'm done installing everything?
>Figure i try it out
>get some errors before menuhax finishes installing
>says it's Installed regardless
>try the Down+L during boot
Maybe i shouldn't continue
What happens when you try to use it? if it shows an error, clear the cache and cookies and try again, if it shows a blank page, there should be a slider that you can click to enter the Homebrew menu.
my situation is that I've just installed everything up to the FBI injection, and my sysnand is 6.2 currently. I'm about to update my emunand. my CFW is rxMode, since I havent installed any other CFW.
-Should I update my sysnand with sysupdater to 9.2?
-will no problems arise if I try all of what you said even after all the things I've done above?
>change your theme once, then put it back to no theme
-what did you mean by this?
thanks in advance.
>install xenoblade through FBI
>spend the entire day trying to figure out why it won't work, trying different cfws and shit
>decide to just try to install it through bigbluemenu instead
>it works now
Reminder to use based BigBlueMenu as your .cia installer.
Alright it's taking a looot to complete is it really this fucking slow?
I used miniPasta to get emNAND 9 and FBI working.
Basically what you want to do is boot into homebrew menu, then run minipasta, this gets rid of the security that stops you from doing hard core stuff.
Then once you run mini pasta it will look like you're back on the 3ds homescreen, but now it's different, run browser hax to bring up the homebrew menu again and run FBI. You will want to install FBI.cia at this point, it will save to "sysNAND". then when you open up emunand 9 (again miniPasta->homebrew launcher) you should follow the steps in the guide and make a back up and shit, but when you copy your sysNAND to emuNAND the FBI will go along with it and be installed on emuNAND.
Now when you tell cakes to load emunand you will be able to install shit with the FBI that's on the home screen.
Dont try and do this solely off of my instructions, the guide in the sticky here:
Does a better job of going through the motions, just if you boot into emunand and FBI isn't there, rememebr what i said about installing it to sysNAND then cloning sysNAND to emunand, because that's how I fixed mine after FBI was suddenly not in my emunand
> just replace the 9.2 firmware.bin with the 9.5 one and check the emunand patch.
ive done this and it says that i need keyx, i dont have that file, where can i download it
since one Anon was kind enough to upload it I'm spreading the love.
All you may lovers out there, here is the cia to cow tits edition May. (star sapphire, its a better Alpha sapphire)
there is one. its right in the op senpai
this question is asked a dozen times every thread. start by reading this thread senpai
thats the infamous 022 error. your nnid is still linked to your original sysnand
where do you live anon? like srsly. Also you can set jdwonloader to multi connections. Like 20 or so... next time do this
I successfully managed to downgrade to 9.2, but Ironfall won't load and the 3DS gets stuck on the screen that has flashing red lines and says Nintendo 3DS.
Does this mean that I can't use Ironfall as my entry point for Homebrew anymore?
The highest firmware you can currently get via cartridge is 10.1, right?
So, my question is: is there a way to use the Partition7.romfs and/or UpdateData.romfs XORpads to create sysUpdater CIAs?
You mean coldbooting using mset exploit? I tried running the python script but the command prompt shows up for a millisecond and then disappears. I don't see anything downloaded.
that's just for installing menuhax. It forces some theme information etc to be created so that menuhax can fuck with it & glitch you to HBL when the 3ds loads it at boot. Just do that if you are going to install menuhax at some point.
I only have 1Mbps of download, anyways. It is a non-topic, stop switching the topic from the important things.
Aside from the sprite in the beggining will it change anything else?
WILL IT RUN ON CFW?
Not my screen shot, but its stupid noticeable, love it.
I want to learn model editing, saw a video awhile back of a dude who made maxie the main character,
It was fucking awesome.
Theres modders also fucking with Busty Serena and that jail bait with the bows on her shirt.
So I boot Cakes through HBL, and select start CFW, and then the screen goes black and kicks me back to sysnand home menu
following this guide if it helps someone help me
So after getting cucked with my 3ds in the mail and going to lose out on the 11th window... the first thing I will have to do is:
1) power on
2) set bullshit DNS
3) can't touch the damn console until a workaround is found, right?
I have smashbros with it in the bundle and was hoping to play at least that but I am guessing trying to connect to play smash online would mean forced update, right?
Will I still be able to access the eshop after my 3ds is downgraded and hacked? I have a ton of digitally downloaded games and I'm wondering how I get those back when everything is done.
its a "star sapphire" mod, you can google the project, its basically a better version of alpha sapphire, and pokes from all gens there, and its tougher and pokes are all legal.
and yes, running rxtools, no issues.
>Trying to figure out how to coldboot
>Follow instructions carefully
>Have to split mys sys and emu
>All the games I actually paid for are gone

>Oh..okay all of my games are in emu. No big deal. Just have to get this autoboot to work

I backed up my SD card before I started even downgrading. Can I just format my card and start over? I dont mind redownloading the cias I got. I just cant stand having all these cfws I thought would help and turn out theyre not that helpful. I was doing well with just rxtools and fbi
Where do I find these mods and is there a playable hex maniac mod
I currently have emunand installed but since I didn't know what I was doing at the time i'm afraid everything is a mess despite everything seeming to be working fine.
Am I safe to start over by formatting my SD card and doing a fresh emunand installation from scratch?
family i think i fucked up,
i got everything working literally everything i had my games and everything, but now i remember i had other games and saves in another SD but that SD doesnt have the emunand, and i just can lose MH3 and Pokemon Y what can i do, i splited the Sysnand and emunand and is the emunand the one where i had those games and i cant take out the SD of the emunand to put the one with the games because i takes me out of the emunand
what can i do to put those files and shit to save my games
I have a new 3dsxl on 10.3 I used browserhax to get the homebrew menu and I went on the old eshop, to download ironhax. I keep getting a error when I try to download, did I do something wrong? thnanks guys
How can I upgrade to RxTools 3.0 from 2.6? I'm trying to boot RxTools from CtrBootManager but judging by this thread there isn't a way to do that with 2.6.
It just hangs when I try to boot or when I try to select firmware.bin with the file manager.
I was a retard and formatted my sysnand with the sd card out instead of tinyformat. Now that my NNID is dead do I really need it now that I can get anything for free or doesn't matter anymore?
dont worry senpai. I downgraded two o3ds and one n3ds today.
The n3ds needed like 87 tries till sysupdater worked. Downgrade succesfully, even rebooted accordingly.
the first o3ds needed 2 tries till sysupdater worked. Also downgraded sucessfully and booted accordingly
the 2nd o3ds got it sysupdater on first try and also everything worked like a charm.
If you pay really close attention to your downloaded fw and make sure the hashes check there isnt much that can go wrong and hardbrick you..
use the other app payload and rename it as the file on your sd root something like webkittemp . bin app payload from the smea website
Please help where do i get this big blue menu i don't want to install a fake/corrupt/outdated one
PLEASE if someone has this, I would be very grateful if you would upload it to Mega. I've tried every site linked on 3dsiso and all of the downloads time range from 10 hours to a day. Mega3dsroms and roms43 don't even have it
I don't even have the physical hardware in my hand. It's being shipped from half way around the world and won't be here until late January (well past the release of 10.4)
I was just curious how I'd preserve it to not get fucked in the ass the next time a good exploit rolls around because I have seem to miss the browerhax window.
Which is why I asked that while waiting in the mean time I could play smash online at least.
What are the odds that my downgrade fucked up?
I have rxTools working but can't install any cia files at all.
I'm trying to inject Pokemon Star Sapphire, and following the guide to get the hack working, everything's working fine all the way up until actually booting it up, where I get "An error has occurred. Please hold the power button."
Anyone know a fix?
I'm going to hope you get that thing on 10.4
You won't be able to use the web browser until you update, so you might as well get yourself OoT or Cubic Ninja for the region your 3DS is in. If that goes >$70 then you might as well get yourself a Gateway or Sky3DS
browserhax was so easy I didn't even need a guide. You literally change a theme, unzip a .zip to your sd card, and scan a QR code. that's it.
I used guides for the downgrade (very simple, just triple, quadruple check your filenames before you do it)
and the coldboot/piracy stuff (holy shit, guide was straightforward but still took 3 hours and I'm a smart computer linux nerd)
10.3** whoops. I heard lower firmware can cause some glitches/inconsistencies with the downgrader, like the browser not being downgraded or having double apps for some reason.
The problem with that method is that it kills your NNID and eshop access, since it's gone from Nintendo servers. I was just wondering if there's any title that needs NNID in order to play it, if not then there's nothing to worry about I guess.
Absolutely moronic question: should I turn my 3ds before I pull out the SD card? I'm following the guide in the OP to the letter, and it's time to put my cia file on the SD card, but it didn't specify either way.
9.2 can browserhax just fine. have to do that lame slider thing on the o3ds though, n3ds just loads a video and auto stagefrights itself
Holy shit now I regret helping you, you fucking useless waste of space. I can GUARANTEE you your parents are disappointed in you. I GUARANTEE IT.
Gonna downgrade and install a CFW on my N3DS tomorrow or over the weekend. Just wondering which CFW I should use. What are the advantages or disadvantages over each other? If I wanted to run region free stuff or make it possible, which one would I grab?
