-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.
Remember guys to secure your hax.
Get whatever backup hax you can.
The more entry points the better.
Setting up MSET on o3DS is handy if you have a DSTWO lying around.
Likewise setting up Ninjhax or OOThax if you got the carts is a good idea right now too.
Morning fellas. So after updating EmuNAND l cant seem to get into browserhax (it keeps crashing) also the damn guide now tells me this:
BigBlueMenu (CIA Manager that's better than FBI in some ways)
>HBLauncher Loader (.cia file to load the homebrew launcher)
How do l do that?
Got everything working
except my FUCKING THEME BGMand autoboot too bad I have to go to work
Does anyone know how to fix the 022-2511 error on n3ds? i unlinked my nands and i'm trying to relink my NNID to emunand and sysnand but i keep getting that error, and the guide in the OP doesn't help
Like a beautiful symphony.
Is there a setting so that it autodeletes the cia file once it installs?
That would be neat.
Hi guys, currently i have an unlinked emunand running on my 3ds XL, the thing is that when i did this i only had a 4gb SD card, which is kinda small, so i want to switch to a 32gb one, is there a way to just copy paste the SD contents in the new one and get it running without any hassle? or a way to copy my emunand to the new SD? or do i have to do all the process of "format emunand" and all that stuff in the new SD?
thank you guys.
desu I had an easier time softmodding my vWii on my WiiU and setting it up to play GC and Wii games.
that said I followed the pastebin and flowchart on the OP the day the downgrade released with TuxSH downgrader and it just went fine no problem
1) Install CHMM2.cia in emuNand
2) Save themes in root/Themes/ folder
3) Open CHMM2, select theme,preview it, if it looks good then press A and it will install
4) Press start, exit CHMM2, press Home button and hey presto, theme has changed.
It's not hard at all, just make sure you do it in emuNand or it fucks up menuhax
Now that everything is set to go on my 3ds finally
Can I hack into that bunny game and get free badges?
have you tried using 2.5 or 2.6? i had best luck getting rxtools to launch initially with the old version before following the pastebin for autobooting which uses a working 3.0 build.
I installed the homebrew .cia launcher. It launches to ctrlbootmanager atm and to change it I apparently need to edit the payload.
When I open and hold the Y button I get this on my sdcard. Is this it?
I opened it in notepad++ but it's encrypted. How can I set it to load boot_hb.3dsx instead of boot.3dsx
Any new Sysupdaters out?
Still getting this error. Thinking about trying every sysupdater until it works.
>remove the offending file
Is that really safe? Please don't fuck with me anon, I've been trying to just downgrade for four days straight now.
well anon, you can play it via wireless if you have the files on your PC, you just need to make a folder called SD/games/(game's name, in this case MHX)
and install the Wireless play cia
Of course you cant you poor fuck
>Is there a reason? It's been working fine so far.
You mean the payload when it's not named "boot.3dsx"? I hear changing the length can screw up the payload when trying to launch HB Channel
Which build are you using and what entrypoint? What's the pack .zip named?
I have sky3ds and I'm thinking of getting 2 32gig cards.
That's basically 64gbs of video games. If only I could find a way to play games on S3DS longer. If you nudge this thing slightly the game freezes so back then I had no choice BUT to buy RF4 since I couldn't progress.
It's good for quick autosaving games though.
So, I just bought a PAL n3DS XL (MH4U) from a local store, starting with QEH1019.
Just wanted to ask you guys if it is 9.0 or 9.2 since it's still sealed and if it isn't I'm just going to sell it for profit since it cost me 'only' 200.
I think I've been using julian20 (libkhax)(recommended)
I could try others.
>I'm guessing I have to do
Updating 8.1J to 9.1J
>Installing CFW without CN/OOT
ok then. I changed it to brew.3dsx and it seems to be working fine.
Settings. If it says "RX-E 10.3" or whatever, then you're in emuNand. Leaving the settings will boot into sysNand though, be careful. (assuming you're using rxTools, idk how to check for cake)
It's possible for Nintendo to tell if they wanted, but they haven't given a shit and we've been doing this since 4.x
For any N3DS users still trying to set up CFW and already formatted EmuNAND9, wanna give this pack a shot and see if any of these CFWs work for you?
Running NTR over Cakes is supposed to allow me to run foreign DLC, right? Because I'm trying to play the US version of Etrian Untold 2 on my JP N3DS and the game won't read the dlc files I installed despite being in NTR mode.
I know the DLC cia should be working because I had the game run on a O3DS with rxtools a long time ago.
>fuck around with NNID settings
>returns me to the system settings
>suddenly not RX-E before the firmware number
>freak the fuck out
>reboot the system and it fails
>boots fine next time
Why does this faggot hack insist on give me a heart attack
Okay I'm not sure if the installation of Emunand is complete. In this guide I've just formated my sd card and installed the partition. I don't understand the rest, is it optional and can I directly go to the cake part ?
Anyone have the Project Mirai DX (USA) cia update?
I finally got eveything working and now I can't find the update. Typical.
Oh son of a bitch, the file didn't fully upload.
Here, for any N3DS owners who already formatted emunand and are trying to get CFW working, try this pack because this is my current CFW setup: http://pastebin.com/GmFMasDZ
Use svdt to backup the save file
(there is another save backup homebrew you can try if that fails)
Use svdt to restore the save file
Fucking pray it worked
Worst case scenario you have the save backed up.
You can try using SaveDataFiler to inject it: Just initialize the save first and copy the contents of the decrypted save over to the EU version.
It worked for me when I switched regions for Bravely Default.
I can't inject fbi through rxtools and can't even "check tmd". Gives "failed..S" error.
So this is my emuNAND right now. Am l done? Can l finally start installing CIAs? Some anon told me l should install BigBlueMenu and HBLauncher Loader, how do l do that?
>not having a 128gb microSD handy.
They aren't even expensive anymore. 200gb has only gone down to a reasonable price on Black Friday for a short period but there's no excuse to not have a 128gb card now.
wait, what? dont play with my feelings now anon, l was following this:
>You may also want to update your emuNAND to be newer than your sysNAND
If you're on an O3DS, you can just go to System Settings and update (MAKE SURE YOU'RE STILL ON YOUR EMUNAND OR YOU'LL LOSE ALL YOUR HARD WORK)
>(MAKE SURE YOU'RE STILL ON YOUR EMUNAND OR YOU'LL LOSE ALL YOUR HARD WORK)
>Closing out of system settings boots you back into sysnand
I-It's okay, we've all been there before.
Are you using rxTools? If you are, you know you're in emuNand because it says "RX-E vnumber" not "Ver. vnumber"
It does dissapear sometimes when you are in emuNand though. Turn off and on again and pray you didn't fuck up.
Amazon has black friday sales in the UK too.
I was fucking kicking myself for missing out on the 200gb card sale. (I have a lot of devices that can benefit from that. My android handheld and phone for sure)
ffs use rxTools don't listen to idiots itt. Especially if you plan on playing out of region games.
Link tothe guide you are using, we have no idea what you are talking about.
Okay, I will try rxTools, Just hope that it will be easier. I was using this thread http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji , so did I finish the installation of emunand and the rest is optional ?
But l am on emuNAND. lf a boot up normally and check my system settings l get pic related.
Ya l did the formating and taking the SD out thing.
l'm using cake. This guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>I finished the whole guide and got up to the injecting FBI to emunand. But I cant find the safety and hazard information app?
But isnt the whole point of injecting to oatch over the health and safety app which you then need to use? I dont even have the app...
For O3DS, yes. For N3DS, you need to manually update to 9.5 via sysupdater by profi200.
You quoted me, and you should do >>127869994
Basically you use pasta to install FBI on sysnand, then format emunand so sysnand gets copied over to the sd card with FBI in-tact
But you need to re-link your nands if you already unlinked them before attempting this, or you'll lose your saves. This is way more consistent than FBI injection imo
Anyone got a cia for FTBrony? Don't wanna open HBL every time to use it. Or is there a better FTP client out there? FTBrony worked fine for me and it does everything i need it to do so i'd rather stick with that.
God fucking damn it l almost cried. So, back to my original questions; Can l finally start installing CIAs? Some anon told me l should install BigBlueMenu and HBLauncher Loader, how do l do that?
I have a legit copy of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. I downloaded the legit update through the eshop.
If I install a .cia version of the game, will I need to install .cia update patches or am I all good?
Yes. DON'T leave the settings back into the home menu. Just go into Other Settings, Page 4, System Update
Okay, I got up to this part but now I have no clue what to do because I dont have th Health and safety app on my menu. Pls help
If you set up emunand according to any competent guide there should be an FBI icon thing in your emunand homemenu, install .cia files with that.
If not you'll have to load up browserhax or something and install the .cia with the homebrew FBI
Thats a fake SD.
Cards over 32GB are only SDXC because of copyright issues with microsoft with the formats.
Buy from amazon or from official retaliers.
I bought a 32GB Sandisk from the official Sandisk retailer.
Okay I'm trying to install Cake but according to http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji files should be in the root of the sd card right ? But i don't understand this "For every .here file on your SD card you should have the real file next to it. Once done you can safely delete the .here files." Help ?
To be more precise.
SDHC cards have FAT32 format.
Microsoft has the copiright to that format up to 32GB. Thats why cards over 32GB are called SDXC and come in the exFAT format.
If you see a card over 32 GB called SDHX its probably a SD with a 2GB/8GB flash and a modded chip to tell the OS its of a higher capacity.
Thats legit. I dont know if it will work with the 3DS though.
I wouldnt go over 128GB to be safe. A Class 10 64GB SD would be the right spot.
Though you would need to do some mumbo jumbo to format it to FAT32, since like I told you Windows cant format it because of copyright or some shit.
do it faggot, live stream yourself killing yourself when it hard bricks
I'm trying to update emunand to 9.5, but the JP update firmware folder I've downloaded only has 104 cia files, while the guide I'm following says theres 105.
I tried updating via sysupdater but it encountered a problem in the middle of updating so it stopped. Is it because I'm missing that 1 cia file? If so can anyone link me to a whole and complete 9.5J update file?
like you would delete eshop games
system > data management > nintendo 3ds > software
select what you want to delete and choose to delete it and create backup of save data so you dont lose your saves
For people using CakesFW or any other CFW that doesn't support region-free, you can run foreign DLC an updates with this:
This should be put in a cakes guide
Why won't he just fuck off?
>I have a legit copy of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. I downloaded the legit update through the eshop.
>If I install a .cia version of the game, will I need to install .cia update patches or am I all good?
Quick question. Right now, as things stand, would you rather buy an N3DS or an O3DS?
>the dbs step
the what? I'm on O3DSXL rxTools, do I need to know what you are talking about?
I downloaded the update files through eshop with the legit games in the game slot. I tested online and it worked for the cart.
Am I ok to try installing a .cia and seeing if that works? At the very least I can't fuck anything up too bad doing this right?
Currently setting up emuNAND and following this guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
When I put EmuNAND9 on it, the guide said to just copy the 3ds folder to the SD, so I did that.
Now I am trying to do a Complete EmuNAND Setup, but I now get the message:
>File starter.bin was not found!
>You may continue wihtout autosetup
>(A to continue, B to cancel)
Well, this is obviously because I didn't put all of EmuNand9 on the SD, but is this supposed to be like this or should I put the rest also on the SD?
get the FTP3DS cia and stop using ponyshit. If you have to sate your autism, its the same exact source code but with Nintendo assets instead of a fucking horse giving you bedroom eyes.
if i didn't already have a 3ds i'd go for an n3ds
the only issue the n3ds is currently suffering from is not being able to update its emunand to the highest fw and that's kinda negligible with cryptofixing and all
trying to install the inital fbi right after using pasta, get this error.

I've tried PastaCFW and miniPasta. Tried changing the CIA files twice as well. Any ideas?
I'm pretty sure rxtools needs to mess with the dbs files too, though I might be wrong.
When you do it your games are wiped.
And nah the game will probably just not open and you can just delete it and try again, at the very worst if the emunand fucks up irreparably you can always restore from emunand.bin.
EVEN then if you dont have an emunand backup you can just make a new one by cloning sysnand to emunand
You've got like a million ways to not fuck this up, please tell me if you actually manage to, because that would be hilarious.
Been following this guide. I'm on a 2DS.
How do I safely update my emuNAND to 10.3 after setting everything up?
1)Boot into Menuhax
4)Update through system settings
Is this correct? I'm really scared of updating my sysNAND since closing the system settings kick me back to it and I'm paranoid as hell about this shit.
You need to boot normally, since this will take you to sysnand, make a folder there then when you try to boot into emunand and you see the same folder, you know you have failed or sysnand and emunand are linked
Dont worry, the vagueness of the guide tripped me up in exactly the same way.
The Home Menu is in memory all the time, allowing you to return quickly when pressing the home button. Some games, like Smash, can take memory from the Home Menu for the game if they need it. This necessitates a "hot reboot" to prepare the memory for the Home Menu again. At least, this is what I gather. I think this is more of a problem with the o3ds's lower RAM.
Is there a way to get gba games running with cia? I installed a gba cia and I get a blank black screen
I installed my first game. Updated it and this is what I see after I try to turn it on.
You need to install the "Ambassador Certificate" aka a GBA_FIRM cia. Otherwise you can't play them. If you want to use inject ROMs you need a patched GBA_FIRM. You have to install it in sysnand, but it's safe because it's not an essential title.
So I just install it on sysnand and not on emu right? I'll give it a shot Thanks
it's also AGB_FIRM if you want to search it. my bad.
Unrelated to that, I want to repair a broken 3DS I got off of my brother and was thinking about installing a hardmod, but should the screws inside the back cover be this stubborn? I only got one out and I'm afraid of stripping the others.
Unlink and back up the NANDs
Install CTRmanager to coldboot into CFW for convenience becaue it WILL drive you crazy otherwise
Play a fucking pirated game.
Install CHMM2.cia to emuNand
Put themes in Themes folder on root
Run CHMM2, install theme
Backup sysNand. Backup SD card
Make emuNand, back it up.
Install CFW. Install games. Install fun.
Why hasn't anyone build an nds emulator for the 3ds yet.
We have full system access, nds emulation is build into the console, can't someone just trigger it and feed it a nds file?
Use a different theme? That's how I did it for a while.
I have a super great advantage though. I've been on CFW for a while. My N3DS sysnand is Japanese, but I region changed my emunand to US so it's really easy to tell where I am.
Make a folder
Call it Emunand
Reboot the 3ds and just let it boot normally so you are in sysnand
If the folder isn't there you have made the folder in emunand
Do all the steps to get back to the HBL and start cakes
Look for the folder
If it is there you now have a definitive sign that you are in emunand.
I'm on 8.1, trying to go through browser exploits to get piracy working
I started by installing rxtools and going to the menu, but now I see in http://pastebin.com/WVszD3Tm that I should go through gateway & wipe my SD card for some reason first
Where the fuck do I get the "fbi_inject.app and fbi_inject.tmd" files, they weren't in my FBI download nor are they listed at the top of the pastebin
Do I get them from https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-3ds-fbi-cia-manager-nand-inject-generator-jpn-usa-eur-chn-kor-twn.391525/ ?
haha, its been what... 4 years? And we only have Portal3DS and Killerman for Homebrew.
what are xorpads? is that a kind of special cia?
Yes, make a change in sysnand and it shouldn't be present in emunand and vis versa.
Also if you followed the guide right in emunand FBI should be somewhere on the home menu.
Really the trick to cakes is enabling emunand in "select patches" i think all the thing sin "select patches" should be enabled as that is what i did.
http://pastebin.com/2heqrN3a I've included DevMenu too in case you ever need another .cia installer. I'm led to believe this is an actual developer tool from nintendo, so I find myself using this more than FBI.
Files that allow you convert a .3ds rom into an installable .cia
There's a tutorial on how to do that in the OP's 3DS pastebin, I suggest you look into it because .cia conversion is an invaluable skill.
For those that are having trouble with their downgraded 3ds/n3ds when setting up emunand/cfw, your downgrade might be incomplete.
The following homebrew checks if NATIVE_FIRM has been successfully downgraded.
If your downgrade turns out to be incomplete, you will have to update to 10.3 and try downgrading again with julian's sysupdater.
I'm having a problem, I posted it yesterday in /hbg/ but fell asleep
When I run ssb4 (game cart) I get a message that says "An error has ocurred. turn off the console...", I tried booting up the game from title manager as well but gives me the same result, would delete the updates (that I downloaded directly from nintendo since an Anon says it was ok) and download them as cia fix the problem? And if so how do I do so?

If anyone (although I doubt it) is also a retard and is in a similar situation post-update-from-downgrade try doing that.

hey guys im having trouble downloading monster hunter 4 ultimate, im running cake cfw and I can install all other games fine and play them im only having trouble with monster hunter 4 ulimate, im using big blue box to download my cia's
I can install the cia for monster hunter 4 ultimate fine but when i try to launch it, it just goes to a black screen for about 20 seconds and then says error restart system
This is a Monster hunter 4 ultimate USA cia just like the other ones ive got.
>Files that allow you convert a .3ds rom into an installable .cia
but there is a whole section on 3dsiso:
Files that allow you convert a .3ds rom into an installable .cia
so those are .3ds converted to .cia? but arent all cia done that way? i'm confused :(
Yes, in fact I happen to be playing with my ACNL CRT right now!
Use SaveDataFiler and dump to SD card.
You can go on http://usuaris.tinet.cat/mark/acnl_editor/ if you want to edit garden.dat
Anyway, to re-import, put the SD:/filer folder where it belongs (assuming you're moving to another 3DS or something) and reimport with save data filer again. I linked the DL to it here >>127891993
I would actually! Just polish the hell out of it.
Is the largest size the o3ds supports is 32GB? I thought it went up to 64GB.
I had this in StreetPass and PokeBank until I installed updates from this:
i've downgraded a while ago and everything is running smoothly
however, i am unable to play the game that was preinstalled on my 3ds (fire emblem awakening) and the games i bought from the nintendo whatever store (smt iv, the new ace attorney).
they're simply not showing up after i formatted my sd card for the emunand. yes i did make a backup of those games and yes i did move the backup onto my sd card.
upon further inquiry, i found out that that this MAY BE because my 3ds is not linked to my nintendo id
i tried to access the nintendo store with the sysnand. but because i have ctrbootmanager installed, it autoboots me into its menu. choosing the homebrew channel there just turns the lower screen red and forces me to shut down my 3ds.
i just want to play my legally bought games ;_;
this, it's fucking stupid
>inb4 buy a flashcart
what if it breaks? I want .nds to run on my system mostly for future proofing, also
>paying to pirate
The 3DS system will surely outlive some shitty flashcart
I need help, whenever I start sysUpdater it just freezes I can't even get it to start downgrading it doesn't respond to any button input.
Should I keep on restarting and trying again or am I doing something wrong?
About Vita homebrew on 3.51:
I currently have ARK-2 installed, but I think TN-V might be better for me. I've got a few questions:
>Does TN-X (the addition that lets you play PS1 games, iirc) work correctyl on 3.51?
>Would TN-V and TN-X work correctly if I upload Vita's firmware after installing them?
>Does TN-V handle Final Fantasy Type 0 correctly?
I'm fucking confused, can I switch in between emuNAND and sysNAND? How and why? Also, what does rxTools actually do? Do I still need BigBlueMenu to inject cias or can I do that using rxTools?
Most likely you are going to publish babies first 2D game, without any polish.
Just getting paralex working for the 3D slider, some okay sound effects, and a beaty music theme thats okay, and it might be good.
The problem is that, why would I play some shitty entry level Homebrew, when there exists .cia I can install directly to the menu, which is DS/GBA/GBC/3DS Eshop tetris attacks.
Don't forget the step where they flash their NAND.bin back to sysnand via gateway launcher, in case they still want to use their official games from the /Nintendo 3DS/ folder
I couldn't find a guide to doing that with cakes.
Besides, if I missed that I might've missed something more important so I decided to start again. (Plus this time I can stop following the guide at the cakes section and ask her for one that picks up at with rxTools instead, since I've heard there's no real need for cakes and RX is better at out of region games (MHX for me) anyway.)
Nintendo is lying, like always.
At the start of the 3DS when I complained to them about region lock and why they insist on doing it, the answer I got was that it's locked by hardware.
I told them that everyone fucking knows that this isn't true but there was obviously no answer.
>Does TN-X (the addition that lets you play PS1 games, iirc) work correctyl on 3.51?
>Would TN-V and TN-X work correctly if I upload Vita's firmware after installing them?
You can have a TN-V bubble on 3.55 yeah, but no guarantee of it lasting any longer than that.
>Does TN-V handle Final Fantasy Type 0 correctly?
Last I checked, no, and it hasn't been updated in about a year, so I wouldn't expect it to,
A few questions:
1. Is the recovery menu inaccessable after installing petitboot on VFLASH on the PS3?
2a. What can't be done on a modded vWii that can be done on a modded Wii?
2b. What can be done on a modded vWii etc etc etc
You could also just format the sd card normally if you're really lazy, but you just wont have access to the part the emunand takes up which isn't really a problem on bigger sd cards.
Also if you're super mega lazy you could juts update sysnand and do nothing to your sd card because without anything to initiate the files on it, all your hax are like benign tumors taking up space.
It really is rediculous.
It's built into the system, might as well abuse it.
but on the other hand, it's nice carrying a fuckton of data.
I have a 20 dollar R4i gold, loaded up with a 64gb sd card and the internal micro sd card of my n3ds is 128gb.
literally vidya for life.
Anything I should know in advance if I'm using CakesFW instead of rxtools?
Is it safe to create a CIA file with the update data still present and then update the emuNAND on a n3DS to 9.5.
Or should I simply use the update files from the MEGA link and profi200's sysUpdater?
If you want to run out of region games, follow this tutorial, especially if you want to install DLC and updates
Look up a tool called Tinker, it's a theme manager that plays nice with menuahax. Also unlink your NANDs.
3DSISO will sometimes give you a .3DS file instead. Use rxTools or decrypt9 to generate the xorpad files, and then use a tool called simple 3ds to cia converter to make your cia file. Google it.
Is the game out of region? If so, make sure you are using rxTools or NTR. Some out of region games won't work right even with their spoofing, so you can also try using HANS to spoof your region and force a language.
gbatemp is where things actually happen, and people just make shitty pastebin guides here. Both userbases are deplorable morons.
If you don't know what you are doing and the idea of downgrading your 3ds scared you, turn around and just use rxTools.
3DSISO is utter garbage. Half the links are broken, and the only ones that work are all the same 10 games. It's near impossible to find anything released more than a year ago except for Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon games.
Can't believe there's barely anything on any torrent sites both public and private.
Any reason this doesn't work?
I ddi the exact same for Animal Crossing and it worked fine. Pokemon Y gives this error though.
Use emuNAND Tool to create a backup of your emuNAND. And make a backup of you whole card.
Plug in the new card, format it to FAT32, inject the emuNAND, and copy all files to it.
>run browserhax to set up menuhax on my newly-formatted sysnand after emunand setup shenanigans
>expecting HBL, instead get a bunch of shit extracting
Holy shit I wasn't prepared for that.
oh I probably didn't put the launcher on the root. I'll have to try that later. thanks buddee
Yes, it's optional but very handy.
Trust me, you will get tired of going through all the shit over and over again just to get into emuNAND.
And with this setup it does everything automatically.
Two things that I hope you guys can help me with. I'm pretty much set up with everything. Have CFW and can pirate games, and whatnot but I have two problems. First of all, what are the steps I need to take for them not to disable my web browser just in case I need to do the browser exploit again for some reason?
2. After Unlinking my NANDS, I can't access eshop or NNID settings anymore. I get a error code 022-2634 error as pic related. I've done some digging and it turns out that I need to sign in on my sysnand and relink it there but whenever I try to relink my ID, it asks me to preform a system update. Anything I can do to bypass this and get my NNID back up and running?

"Once here, launch FBI. Now that you're in FBI you can install .cia files. Go to where you save fbi.cia and install it. This will allow you to access FBI from your home menu instead of the homebrew launcher."
When I go to my home menu there's very briefly an icon without any picture, I'm assuming this is FBI, problem is it immediately dissapears. Is this a problem/fuckup or does it just mean it only properly shows up on the menu once I've gone through the whole EmuNAND creation process etc?
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/
>If you don't know what you are doing and the idea of downgrading your 3ds scared you, turn around and just use rxTools.
I haven't even started yet, but I guess I'm using rxTools since I'm terrified of fucking this up and spent the past day figuring out how this process works on a mechanical level so I DON'T fuck it up.
1. Backup your emuNAND.
2. Backup all emuNAND files (ticket.db etc.) with rxTools.
3. Backup the content of your SD card.
4. Format emuNAND.
5. Recover your SD card content and boot rxTools in emuNAND.
6. Update to 10.3.0-28X and boot into emuNAND again.
7. Go to system settings and to NNID at the top; follow instructions.
8. Boot emuNAND and start the eShop; simply restart the 3DS if it keeps looping after the password input.
9. Once in the eShop, close it and shut down.
10. Recover your whole SD card once more.
11. Inject emuNAND backup.
12. Inject all emuNAND file backups.
13. Start the eShop in emuNAND and it should refresh your software.
14. And now you should have emuNAND eShop access without any loss of StreetPass/Save/Friend/etc. data.
Can I erase NAND.bin and screenshots_raw.bin ? They're not related to the 3DS hack ? Because I don't even have enough space for games
No, cfw can run in sysnand.
If you have emunand set up and your cfw cant load hbl and fbi properly (mine did this too) then you have to install FBI.cia to sysnand then clone sysnand to emunand in emuNAND9 and unpair sysnand and emunand again.
I recommend installing tinyformat to sysnand at the same time you install FBI and running it in pasta after you clone to emunand as that is exactly what I did to get cakes working
Is that the game you want? Here.
CIA file might be broken? Try getting a different one if you can.
It only shows up and stays in emuNAND. If you want it in sysNAND, inject it to sysNAND Health and safety app.
If you want your NNID back on your sysNAND, restore the sysNAND backup you made (NAND.bin). If you didn't make this backup you cannot restore it to sysNAND.
It is old, read the sticky and use a shitty pastebin guide, or google how to do it and use a slightly less shitty gbatemp guide.
You won't fuck anything up unless you install the wrong files. After you downgrade it is literally as simple as following one of the dozens of guides out there on how to do it, it is dead simple. rxTools will do everything you want. Don't listen to fags shilling for CakesFW, its only good if you are comfortable with messing with shit until it works.
is it possible to play the pokemon picross from a .cia without visiting the eshop? i saw thread on 3dsiso, but they were asking to visit the eshop first
Back up NAND.bin, but you're going to need a bigger SD card because deleting those will only free up a little under 1GB of space.
Use HANS from homebrew or google to do a firmware spoof
So phoenix wright vs professor layton failed to install because it wasnt a valid cia earlier according to BBM. I shut down the 3ds, deleted the cia and copied it over again after redownloading the same zip and now it worked.
Dunno if the problem was a botched transfer or if rebooting solved it but just a heads up that it's solvable.
>NOTE: The 3dsx version requires extra permissions *hax alone can't provide. If possible use the CIA build.
What does this mean? Can I simply use kickass to start it and initialize the downgrade?
So even tho rxtools can't run .3ds games you can still convert them over? Shit
How do I put fbi in my home menu ?
I've got Emunand set up
I've unlinked nands
I'm using fbi
My main problem is that when I download a game in the fbi it doesn't show up anywhere in the cfw home menu and on the regular home menu ( although two icons pop up and just randomly disappear.) I'm so confused.
Finally! It took the sysupdater 3 hours to finally locate the cia files. After that the downgrade went smoothly and rebooted without freezing up.
>Downgrades have been possible since June last year
What a smeg.
Alright lads we /32gb/ now. How do I move my emu nand over? Can I just format it on my new card then copy everything over my old card?
Also if I download .cia's of my .3ds roms (was using gateway before) will my saves still work?
Has anyone found working links for Theatrhythm Curtail Call and it's DLC? All I can find is one link for the US version of the game, and one link for the EU version of the DLC, which isn't going to work.
Do you delete your installed cias via the data management of your 3ds, or is there a special way to do it? I saw a thread saying it can cause problems (maybe it was an old thread).
Do DLCs work on CFW after the downgrade? I heard people had trouble with them
Hey guys, I have downgraded and installed the rxTool as emunand on my Japanese 3DS without any issues.
Now my problem is with running certain games, I know rxTools is supposed to be Region Free, however I just cannot play Zelda Majoras Mask, already tried with an american CIA and a "region free" european one, same results. I also couldn't get Puzzle and Dragons to work.
However I was able to play Mistery Dungeon (USA), Animal Crossing (USA) and Style Boutique (EUR) without any problems.
What's up with that, is Majoras Mask specially protected or something? or are Japanese 3DS problematic for playing games from other regions....or I'm just a bad lucky motherfucker?
Welcome to the promised land, brother.
keep trying nigga
>you need to install it to sysnand
Fuck that, I'm not touching the sysNAND, I'll stick to emulators, may be less accurate but at lease I'm certain I won't just fuck my console up.
if you're on an O3DS, enjoy your horrible framerates
trust me i've tried it
on an N3DS i think they work well enough, and seeing as you can use the saves with PC emulators it's arguably the better choice
Are you allowed to keep the Ambassador Certificate if you have a NNID connected?
>following this guide
>no problem setting up on o3DS
>not actually loading anything
is that thing supposed to work on a New 3DS?
yes, but if it wasn't obvious, the dude you replied to was misinformed. AGB_FIRM is entirely unrelated to the ambassador certificate and the games will run fine without it if launched in RX-Mode or with a patched AGB_FIRM installed.
you end up having to install gba vc titles to sysnand and i heard that it fucks up dsiware titles
>So you can't play online on n3DS with CFW?
...what? how did you come to that conclusion?
Anyone know where to find this and it's update files?
1339 - Hatsune Miku - Project Mirai DX (Europe) NEW DUMP
The one forumn I found's links are down.
at least we can look forward to more kickass 3DS homebrew!
wii u homebrew fucking when?
Homebrew is already possible on Wii U, there's even a game loader. IOSU exploit will release likely in a few weeks.
Encryption using keys that aren't publicly obtainable yet.
So I just got rxtools running. Is it safe to update it to 10.3, set up my NNID and redownload my legit shit? Of course I'll pirate, but there's no drawbacks in using legit shit I bought right?
No need to renown load if it's already on your sd card. Just back up emuNAND folder in "Nintendo 3DS" folder. If you don't know which is which copy both it deletes the one you need after restoring to set up NNId
I just picked up a 64gig Sandisk Ultra Plus SDXC card. Formatted it to Fat32 and am running into some issues I don't quite understand.
First of all, is it normal for my N3DS XL (9.2) to take forever to boot into the homemenu? Because booting takes at least a minute I think.
Also, I installed menuhax and it says it was successful but I can never get it to boot into the homebrew launcher when I hold L.
Any ideas on what's wrong? I think the card is fine but I could be wrong.
I'm using an SDXC card all the same, and I do admit boot times have gotten longer. But I have been able to use homemenuhax. Maybe its a problem with the L trigger? Try assigning a different command to it
sup nigguhs, I can't get my monster hunter 4 ultimate cia to work, I have cake CFW and used big blue box to download cia's to my 3ds,
I downloaded 6 other cia's and they worked fine, but when i installed monster hunter 4 it installs fine but then when i launch it for the first time it just goes to a black screen for around 20 seconds and then says error please restart system.
What do? Any help would be apreciated.
Please guys sponefeed me I'm fucking retarded.
I am at the "install FBI.cia" step, before the whole emunand thing.
I installed it, but it only appears when I activate pasta and only works when pasta is active, if I reboot the system FBI can't be launched and disappears after a while. Is this correct?
Sorry for asking this if it's already been answered but I'm a bit confused on what to do now.
After following this guidehttp://i.imgur.com/tH9FMpc.png, I managed to downgrade to 9.2 on my sysnad and RX30 10.3. Now I'm trying to follow http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji but everytime i try to launch cake through HBL I'm not getting a menu. I hearing people say just use rxTools but What exactly am I doing after I launch it?
Please help. Its still loading and I'm getting more and more worried by the second
ok I got the red text. It tells me that I shouldn't run this in sysNAND Gateway mode or it will brick. I literally just followed http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 this guide with a stock 3ds v10.3. am I good to go?
Christ. Can anyone help in this thread? Do I install menuhax on my second NAND? I tried just configuring it but it won't autoboot. Don't want to install it out of fear of ruining rxtools.
It is probably a silly question but here it goes.
I have a O3DS Xl,I already downgraded, have a emunand, and installed rxtools, installed FBI and updated my emunand to the last version.
Now, can I install cia from other regions? for example fire emblem fates with the translation or monster hunter x
What else should I do?
The red text it's just a warning. You should press Y once, and you should get a message saying "Getting CIA information". If it appears, just wait and let it do its thing. If nothing appears on the screen or the program freezes, just restart and try again.
