I didn't see one, so here you guys go.
Can I have 9.2 running on emunand while I update to the latest version in sysnand?
Nobody answered me on other threads so...
I have a 10.3 o3ds with ironhax.
If i try to downgrade and i fail with a soft brick, will i still be able to use ironhax once i rollback to 10.3/get to 10.4?
>bricked my o3DS (my fault)
>buying used o3DSXL for very cheap
>nintendo is going to remove the exploits on the 11th
>not sure if it'll be here before that
Yes to 10.3, unknown/no on 10.4
I mean, you have ironhax working on it right now and it's 10.3. Why shouldn't it work again after reloading in recovery?
Personally I used browserhax and menuhax.
Not OP but can you update the emunand to the latest version and keep FBI and installed pirate games?
Also, I haven't played the 3DS in ages, but is there any advantage to upgrading the piece of shit? Right now all the games I pirated work fine in 9.2, and I have literally no reason to access the eshop or all of those online things that give money to Nintendo.
It's DEFINITELY not on 9.0+, that's the problem.
It's probably on Pokemon X's firmware version, which is 6.x I think? There's no exploits on that version, right?
Isn't 10.4 supposed to fix exploits?
Question myself, since I'm having a fucking hard time trying to get the CFW setup, I left tubehax DNS off because I didn't want to stop browserhax. I then couldn't use Ironhax anymore because my firmware was so old the system would softlock and browserhax stopped working when I downgraded. Eventually, it updated anyways.
I think 4chan would be better at writing guides than any of the shits at gbatemp. Most of them list multiple steps that aren't relevant since I don't own a gateway and just want the simplest CFW solution.
3DS doesn't update automatically.
They can remotely deactivate the web browser which is important to getting homebrew in the first place. But they can't do that if you set a DNS that blocks nintendo servers first.
OP here, same question as this anon. Anyone knows anything?
I had the 9.2 o3ds cias in the updates files and when it downgrades and reboots i get an error to turn off and contact support
Is this normal since it's happened twice and soft bricking makes me reinstall menuhax. Is it based on luck? When will i get to downgrade
I don't get it, once you setup up the whole CFW thing after downgrading 9.2, how exactly do you start palying ROMs? And is this a good video to follow in regards to downloading CFW?
Browserhax stopped working when you downgraded because it works differently on different firmwares. The sliderhax thing people keep mentioning? That's the 9.2 browser way to access homebrew. Go to the page, there will be a slider in the top left corner. Poke the rightmost edge of it and homebrew will load.
As for updating anyways, fucking how? The dns will only stop sneaky updates that nintendo might shove in when 10.4 becomes a thing. Your 3ds will generally ask you if you want to update before it does shit.
Get back to it. You gave up too early.
>3DS HACKING GENERAL THREAD
I got banned for making a homebrew "general thread" when I really just wanted to put out a PSA with one of the homebrew websites
I'm still salty about it
Anyway my old XL is on 9.9 or something and I was thinking about downgrading it, I just don't want to lose my digital purchases/saves. It hasn't been a big priority for me though since I also have an old 3DS that's already hacked, so I'd just be having another system to run my emunands.
1. You are using the wrong firmware files
2. Some of your firmware files have been corrupted during download or unzipping
3. There is something wrong with your SD Card. Full format it on PC and try again.
Alright, just started my attempt at downgrading N3ds
I get this screen error doing sysupdater
Is this the error code where I have to keep restarting for it to work?
my cia files are properly set in the 'Updates' folder inside root
You can. I have and it's works like a charm. Make sure to install your fbi to the emunand and only use it there, I've heard there have been issue with using it in the sysnand and the installed games will go to whichever nand the fbi is installed anyways
Why you should do it? Free shit.
If you get good at it you could buy used 3dses cheap, downgrade, install cfw, and sell for a large profit. People will pay top dollar for a hacked 3ds.
Im kinda troubled tho, im getting the same feeling i had with the psp, i put a lot of games at the same time and only play each like 5 minutes.
So I accidentally set coldboot to emunand and then realized I was doing it wrong and set it to sysnand
Now my system coldboots emunand and then tries to coldboot again and ends up crashing unless I hold x right after I launch rxtools.
It's not really that big of a deal and I'll fix it eventually but is there a way to change menuhax so it only runs in sysnand and disables for emunand on the 3ds or do I have to just uninstall menuhax and start over from the beginning?
Be sure that the correct files for the firmware that you want to downgrade are all in a folder called "update" in the root of your SD card.
And be sure that you have the EXACT firmware version for your 3DS model.
If you have done that... just keep trying. It's not bug free or garanteed to work yet.
I already did that but I can try doing it again.
The tutorial I saw said you could remove your sd card right before you start the process and when you run it you wouldn't lose anything. I got all my stuff back but it forced all of the 3ds games I actually bought into emunand. Which I wouldn't mind if I could get my 3ds to boot emunand without this minor detail bothering me.
Then again I'm on O3ds. It might be riskier on N3ds
Where did you download the update file? Get it from this MEGA link:
Make sure to get the (full) version. Also I'm not 100% sure but I think you need the one for the original 3ds, so you have to download this file: 9.2.0-20U(Full).zip
I used this guide: http://pastebin.com/WVszD3Tm
If you can't follow instructions this simple I don't know what to tell you.
There is link to the tiny format files in the thing you should know section.
You should be saving tubehax for after you have everything in place. Once you've arranged it so that you don't have to use the browser to access rxtools/homebrew than you apply it. Nintendo won't do shit to you if you don't have it yet. 10.4 is when things start to fall apart and that's not till the 11th.
Here's a goddamn autoboot tutorial as well since I'm in such a spoonfeeding mood.
Use it after you have your enumand set up and rxtools in place.
>It's probably on Pokemon X's firmware version, which is 6.x I think? There's no exploits on that version, right?
There is. I was on 6.2 (from pokemon x/y) and I followed this guide:
I'm trying to install menuhax, however I followed the guide, basically install 'success', then go to config triggers - type0 'success'
says if I hold L in home menu it would coldboot into homebrew
but it doesn't do anything I've restarted the n3ds and doesn't work still. I'm not sure if menuhax is installed or not.
Using the web browser the only one that works that goes into homebrew
Got everything setup so far. My only issue is CTR doesn't autoboot rxtools, so I have to manually hold the L button to boot it into emunand. Seems like the issue is not unlinking nand but whatever, I don't feel like pushing my luck anymore. Spent 2 days figuring out these hacks and shit. At least I can play free vidya now.
Friends, question here.
So I was running RxTools and got this Unwrap bug everytime I boot up my console.
I read at gbatemp it was recommended to UNLINK NANDS and that's what I did.
Little did I know by doing that I cant use online on my cfw, after unlinked.
So im asking if there is any way to play online on my cfw after unlink?
I think I had a similar problem.
It's not "Hold this button to coldboot" It's "Select what button to hold if you do not want to coldboot."
I set mines to x. So if I hold x while I turn on my 3ds, it goes to sysnand, the normal 3ds version. But if I don't hold anything, rxtools boots up and then it goes to emunand
Thanks. I tried all of those. I had to uninstall menuhax from both emu and sys then turn off my system, go into sys and only install it in sys.
That should have been obvious but I was tired when I was fiddling with it yesterday. Thanks.
So i'm trying to install FBI, but it keeps saying invalid signature. Do I have to install it right after applying the pastaCFW things through homebrew? Beacuse trying to get into homebrew after using it doesn't work.
Thanks! I figured it out, I tried out type 1 instead.
probably the reason why I couldn't get it going is I had to hold the buttons while turning on 3ds. I just assumed I just had to load the 3ds then hold down the buttons.
Reminder that cakes is better on N3DS, and getting GBA VC to work on N3DS with RXTools is nearly impossible.
reminder that n3DS is expensive as shit in the thrid world and i literally can't justify its price (4x as much as o3DSXL)
so I shouldn't use https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-install-a-cfw-on-a-9-0-9-2-n3ds-without-cn-oot.398394/ ?
didn't these old versions allow some type of browser exploit?
You can use rxtools to boot your emunand. The emunand firmwear should have an Rx or something in front of it. The sysnand firmwear doesn't have any latter's at the start, just the 9.2.
Change the theme and icon size and placement so you can tell at a glance whether youre in the sysnand or the emunand.
Question: How do system transfers work if you transfer shit from an O3DS with CFW to a new N3DS?
Ok, I was just about to go out and get myself an N3DS XL for hacking a few minutes ago, then I saw a thread with people with bricked systems, saying that it was extremely risky to use the exploit on the N3DS, and that I should try the O3DS instead.
I can follow simple instructions, but I don't want to fuck up. Which is better to get right now?
I'm about to get an emunand but how do I get back the shit that was on my 3ds prior the downgrade and resetting software stuff?
Not a DQ fan, but I feel for you guys. At least all the devotees will still buy the games this time, right?
So ive got everything set up on an 8gb card. I'm going to order a bigger sd card. Do I need to set up a new emunand on this card or can I just literally copy and paste my current cards content?
This thread got here just in time.
I'm following this guide:
I can't launch Menuhax to launch Mini Pasta. I've also tried browserhax to open the homebrew menu, but that doesn't work either.
Which is better on a N3DS, CakesFW or RXTools? I'd like to know before it's too late to go back on any of this.
Got an n3ds running emunand 9.2, pasta cfw, rxtools and menuhax. Able to play smash online and triforce online. Only real question is, is there any chance you could get caught playing online with pirated games? Deleted all my sysnand online connections and only have an emunand online connection.
I just installed my first cia game.
However I had a legal download copy of a link between worlds that I was in the middle of playing before all of this.
The game is now gone and I assume the save file is as well.
I backed up everything up on PC before the downgrade and just before installing emunand too.
I there anyway to get back the game and my progress?
You keep stuff after downgrade, it only "clears" when you unlink NANDs(via resetting) and only on one NAND, you can choose which one. Just don`t forget to backup before creating an emu-partition.
What should I download next.
I already have pic related.
Currently downloading Super Mystery Dungeon.
Also have these physical games:
>don't know what to do now
I tried overwriting the H&S app with the FBI thing most people use for their .cia files, but I assume I don't have the files to do that?
When I launch emunand through it, it still shows sysnand so I'm guessing that's not working either
hey guys quick question. Last night i managed to boot into rxtools and loaded up the emunand. I loaded up eshop and it asked to do system update. I did the system update and it updated the sysnand to 10.3.
am i fucked? i have a backup of my 9.2 sysnand...
>on a n3ds xl
>when it only support 9.5 emunand
For what purpose is this hack even for?
Okay, so I haven't updated my O3DS in ages and it looks like it is still at version 9.0.0-20u.
Is there anything I need to do in terms of upgrading/downgrading to 9.2 or am I already set?
I heard there's problems with stuff not working right on New 3DS and it can only update emuNAND up to 9.5
Is it still worth downgrading or is it likely that this stuff will eventually get fixed? tempted to just buy a 2DS
Update your emuNAND, if you're on an o3DS it's as simple as making sure you're in emuNAND, then going to system settings, other options, then system update. Then let it do it's thing and then your emuNAND is up to date.
okay, I've been using using FTP-3ds mostly, think it does the same thing as the MLP program, I seem to have better luck with the FTP, 50% chance of black screen, 25% it loads but freezes, 25% it would load and show me the same cia error after I press downgrade.
Been restarting again and again since I posted
I do it through menuhax, and julian20 sysupdater.
sooner or later i'll get it.. R-right?
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?
>been in and out of the hospital all week
>was gonna try to downgrade my N3DS XL this weekend since I knew there were a lot of patience needed
>Nintendo actually started doing maintenance today instead of Tuesday like they normally do
>10.4 will be out in mere hours making it so I get one and only one chance to downgrade without a soft brick
I am so fucking mad right now holy shit
I'm on a n3DS and I just can't get past this point, everything is in the right folder and everything has gone smoothly up until this part
Is this one of the things that I just have to keep resetting and attempting until it works?
Thanks, you're the fucking man.
Had this problem. I used the files from 3dsiso. Starter kit, 9.2 cias, menuhax, etc. After you have menuhax (assuming you used the files from 3dsiso..), open up ftbrony from the menuhax and hit b to exit. Then open up the sysupdater. Should work. Worked for me.
WAIT ARE YOU SERIOUS
THEY'RE PATCHING OUT BROWSERHAX NOW?
Probably not serious. But in any case, you aren't exactly forced to download anything at all. My system only updated when I used the system updater in the settings..
FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TOO AFRAID TO DOWNGRADE:
DO NOT DELAY IN GETTING HOMEBREW LAUNCHER WORKING ON YOUR 3DS, IT HAS NO POSSIBILITY OF BRICK AND WILL LET YOU DOWNGRADE ANY TIME YOU WANT. JUST GO TO http://smealum.github.io/3ds/ AND FOLLOW THE STEPS TO SET UP MENUHAX ON YOUR 3DS. THIS WAY YOU'LL HAVE REGION FREE AND THE POSSIBILITY TO DOWNGRADE WHENEVER YOU FEEL TO WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT NINTENDO FIXING BROWSERHAX.
Hey bro, I'm glad I'm not the only one
let me know if you get a break through, check out if any of the guys who replied to me helps
How different are the two? I see some people saying rxtools hangs a lot, but since everyone is using rxtools anyway, I don't know if I should substitute rxtools with cakesFW if it'll only produce more issues.
i've only used cakes on n3ds and it's pretty good, but a lot of people say rxtools has problems with it so most use cakes. rx works fine on o3ds though
DON'T YOU NEED BROWSERHAX TO INSTALL HOMEBREW ALL OVER AGAIN AFTER DOWNGRADING?
I'm following the flowchart now. Currently formatting my EmuNAND (I made a backup first). Next is to format SysNAND then plug the card into my computer, remove nand.bin, then restore the other files. Correct?
Browserhax will always work for any firmware avaiable now. If you don't get menuhax and upgrade your 3ds to a future 10.4 you won't be able to use the homebrew launcher since 10.4 will most likely fix the browserhax trick.
tl/dr: browserhax works on 9.8
Anything I should know before going with cakes, then? If there's less issues with it on N3DS, I'll give it a run.
you might need bootNTR to play out of region stuff, but other than that there's nothing else i can think of
Removing the SD card kicked me out of the browser, anon.
Is there a way to install themes without fucking with menu hax?
No problem dude. Listen once that's done, follow the tutorial at this link starting at emunand.
You already have the starter kit I'm assuming. Worked flawlessly for me. If after you don't have fbi on your emunand, he links it in the post how to inject into health and safety. Just download decrypt9 and put all the files on your sd card. Open up rxtools, find decrypt9 and open it. Follow the instructions on the tutorial he links and you're all set. I was confused doing it since they don't tell you how to get decrypt9 on the console. Screencap this if the thread prunes. You'll want it.
You format sysnand through the system settings. Just remove sd, power on 3ds, boot as normal, go to settings, other settings, format system memory.
This unlinked the nands.
It tries to wipe your sd if you leave it in there.
Gotcha, anons. Wish me luck in not bricking my 3DS.
Because most glitches regarding menuhax fucking up booting into your emuNAND are avoided, and ou can update your emuNAND without updating the sysNAND, thus letting you play online.
Assuming your files are correct, which you should have triple checked, then just keep running it if it fails. I downgraded my n3ds 2 days ago in 6 tries; I found opening the ftpbrony app and closing it immediately before attempting sysupdate helped. If you get past the "press y" stage and see its pulling cias then leave it alone until it's done.
I found a o3DS my brother abandonned. It hasn't been updated in fucking aaaaages. Are there any (good) exploits for this version or am I best off updating and using the exploits everyone is using?
If you can't be arsed to open the image, the version is
Ok guys I got convinced. I'll take the risk.
Is there any complete, spoonfeeding guide out there to pirate and downgrade a n3ds? I'm gonna go buy a larger microsd now and ill try it in a fee hours.
Just downgraded to 9.2. Is there anything in my sd folder that I should delete?
So I did all the process in order to play Final Fantasy Explorers and see if it worth the price, instead of that I'm confused between buying it or not it is fun but not $40 fun, I sacrificed my Pokemon Shuffle game for this, I feel kinda dumb.
you should see an FBI icon on your menu
Is removing your SD card really, really necessary for all this on an N3DS? It's such a hassle to do.
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
What else should I do?
I copied all files from my old 4GB SD to my new 32GB SD and now it says that emuNAND can't be found. What do?
eventually, you'll either get used to it, or find the utility that allows you to wirelessly transfer files from your PC to your SD without entering System Settings, therefore resetting your device
Ok I see it, but only when I activate the pasta thing. So now can I proceed to create the emunand?
I've formatted emuNAND three times now, I got a nand.bin the first time, but I fucked up afterwards so I assumed I needed a new one. It's not going to give me another one now though, is it?
yo dudes, i'm on rx2.6. i installed the blargSNES.cia file and ran it, once it goes past the 3DS prompt screen my 3DS locks and i have to restart. is there a way to get blargsnes running? it's supposed to be compatible with all cfw.
did you mistake system settings with some other tool, like the gateway stuff?
you format sysnand with the orlginal 3ds system settings, you don't need the .bin(just for backup).
Haven't attempted doing anything to sysNAND yet.
The first time I tried I messed up something, although I can't remeber what. I moved the backup onto the SD card and tried again, twice. Both times I was left only with "LAUNCHER.DAT"
I still have the nand file from the first try I did though
this is pretty foolproof. at the part where it says to download the firmware.bin at some mega file, just ignore that, download and install python, then run the .py file in the tools > firmware folder, it'll create your own for you to use.
no clue. i haven't installed any games yet so i don't know if the problem affects vidya as well. currently downloading MH4U to test it out.
Try running ftBrony first, press b twice to exit out of it, and thn run sysUpdater again. This has apparently been a fix for several people, though I can't tell you why it works.
with linux it is three lines in terminal, windows you need some tools, I search for you.
cloning is a bit by bit copy from one drive onto another, so your 32gb card is a clone of your 4gb card after that you expand the file system to 32gb
Formatting emunand shouldn't do anything visibly but wipe your card honestly. The nand.bin is a backup from dumping your nand.
Just put all your files back on your sd card after you format emunand, then format system settings in your 3ds (without the sd in it). Now you'll have an unlinked sysnand and emunand.
Now when you load up rxtools you should be able to boot into emunand. This is your CFW
I believe I used an older version (2.65 maybe? Gotta double check) since it's apparently more stable. My n3ds cold boots into rxtools and then emunand. Did you do the configure step in the setup??

Did I fuck up?
Is it possible to change a .3ds into a .cia without xorpads? I want to play the fire emblem if fan translation v3 but I can only find it in .3ds format. That and I have no idea how to run rx on my n3ds.
It's been answered a bunch of times before but the short answer is yes.
If you pirate games, if it's a cia file you're safe. If you use .3ds files with a gateway or sky3ds then you need to patch in headers.
wait I had to upgrade?
both don't mention upgrading
I just formatted my emunand and am putting files back on
Why did you buy it in the first place anon?
If you have a DS flashcart that was affected by the flashcart killer update a few years ago, you can at least possibly use that thanks to bluecardfix.cia, and then there's GBA/SNES emulation available too.
Use menuhax to autoboot. Change it to type 2. Open your homebrew launcher to access menuhax or use rxtools to do so.
This tutorial has you change your boot.dl file to another file name and add the rxtools boot in place of it. Try that.
I got everything working. I boot to the boot manager and load rxtools, but when I try to install cias none of them appear on my home menu in emunand. Rebuilding dbs does nothing.
Anyone else have this problem?
different anon, and this is a stupid question, but with which app would I update emunand to the latest firmware (and exactly how)? I keep hearing 'system update' which only reminds me of the 3DS app's one which brings me back to sysNand. My Nand should be unlinked though, but I might double check that later either way.
Thanks for this. Where's a good place to get custom themes anyway?
This handles official and custom themes, right?
Holy hell, thank you anon. You're doing Goss work in this thread. Thanks again senpai. I've been racking my head on this for 4 days now.
hm, i technically already have that with rxtools, though, right? i mean i just load up the browser, tap a bookmark with the loader command and it'll boot if i don't press r to go into rxtools options. i thought it meant it would automatically boot into rxmode without having to go through the browser.
I successfully downgraded, but I'm wondering do I have still have to install a cfw by monday? I changed the DNS settings so Nintendo shouldn't be able to update my 3ds anymore.
I bought a couple of digital games before all this and I'd like to finish them before downgrading otherwise I might not have enough space on my 4gb card
>tfw I just went to the store to buy a n3dsxl for the sole purpose of hacking and pirating.
Wish me luck. I read it might be a bumpy road for the n3ds, but no risk no fun. Since I don't intend to use it without cfw, I can happily sit back and wait for more stable exploits. I just wanted to get a device before a new firmware reaches the shelves
>I'll just gobble up every shovelware shitty game pushed out by Nintendo because its okay when my overlord does it! Keep feeding me that cum overlord!!!
It did and they ended up being shit. Its pretty much a dead handheld now with nothing good coming out on it so that's pretty disappointing too. Waste of money on my part.
My 64gb sd should be getting here today so I have 2 questions:
Some guides say I need to have 2 working exploits that open the homebrew channel if I'm going to downgrade. Is this true?
And how likely is a soft brick on a N3DS if I follow the guide to a T?
Which game? And why don't you just sell it instead of complaining about it on 4chan? You won't get all your money back but it'll be money towards other shit.
Also, I'd recommend you start waiting until a console has 3-5 games which are worth playing before you think about buying it. Just buying it for a single one before it's even available is a pretty bad idea.
>implying that I'm a nintendrone
I was pirating 3 years ago on 3DS m8. Haven't gave Nintendo a penny since the DS.
You just have incredibly shit taste if you can't find at LEAST 20 games you like on the 3DS. Seriously.
You need to use browserhax to get into the homebrew launcher once and there you install the second exploit, menuhax to boot into hbl without having to use the browser (normally by pressing L when you boot up your 3ds)
>all this work to play FE if
>it's not properly translated
Browserhax, then install menuhax. Make sure you follow the fine prints.

>the solution to one of the potential freezes is simply to just remove your SD card, even on a N3DS

I'M GETTING SCARED
guys im able to install fbi and games in sysAND but not emuNAND. whats up with this?
Sorry for asking this if it's already been answered but I'm a bit confused on what to do now.
After following this guide http://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?
this, some anon said some shit about cloning them to emuAND but i dont know what the fuck this means
Me too man.
>spend entire night hacking 3ds
>exhausted at work next day
>get home, load up FE Fates
>class called "traits"
>class names are wrong
Guess I'm just waiting for US launch
Oh you're trying to get FBI on your NANDs? If you already unlinked, dump EmuNAND with EmuNAND Tool and flash it back to your SysNAND by putting its NAND.bin on root, going into Gateway Menu (download the .3dsx from their site, run w/HBL) and pressing A while holding up on "Downgrade Console" to restore your NAND.bin to SysNAND again
After that (or if you didn't unlink nands yet) then run pasta, hold trigger button to prevent menuhax, get back into homebrew launcher via browserhax, run FBI.3dsx, install FBI.cia
Finally, format EmuNAND with EMUNAND9 (back up files first) and you should have FBI on EmuNAND.
Do the pasta>homebrewlauncher>FBI.3dsx>FBI.cia method again to get it on sysnand too.
Is it time to repost images that constantly show up in these threads?
Assuming you're stuck on the first step for linking the nands again, you should be putting your SD card in the computer and running EmuNAND Tool, which is a windows program. Let it extract the NAND.bin from your SD card, and put the NAND.bin it extracts back on root named "NAND.bin". Then flash that file back into sysnand via gateway launcher
Anita, im very confused. for one thing i didnt know emunand was a pc program, another is i didnt use gateway at all, and is there any way you can simplify your explanation for a chimp fuck like me?
Where the fuck do I find the newest sysupdater?
I downloaded one off GBAtemp, but whenever I boot it up in menuhax or ironhax it just freezes immediatly on a black screen
Should I back up my saves and stuff for digital games before downgrading or before installing CFW? I don't even know where to look for those saves.
How will this effect 3ds hardware sales?
Its not a hard mod to do but I dont see the average joe being able to do this
Thanks. I think I've figured this out then:
1) Turn on system
5) Install FBI.cia
This is correct, right? I just did this.
If it's right, what's next? Am I done? Is there a better way into EmuNAND than through the browser?
Followed instructions carefully, but can't boot into mini-pasta, I just get a black screen. I tried both Browserhax and Menuhax but neither work.
I heard this may be the result of a partially failed downgrade but I used the checker and it said my 3ds was fully downgraded.
I'm using this guide
I got stuck onn the part where it tells me to place the dbs files into the gibberish folder as I have two of those in the Nintendo 3DS folder.
One of the gibberish folders leads to a folder called "exdata" or something like that and the other to the downloaded applications directory.
Where to place the dbs?
Is this guide good or bad? Anything simpler I could use right now?
Here's what I did
>gateway browser exploit
>drag files in again
>rxtools browser exploit
>overwrote H&S with FBI
>launch through emunand
>checked if I was in emunand through system settings
>rxtools browser exploit
>launch through emunand
>rxtools browser exploit
>overwrite H&S with FBI
Now when I try to install any CIA through the H&S, I get the following error
Could not install aPP.
Raw Error: 0xc8a0802b
Module: AM (0x20)
Level: Status (0x19)
Summary: Invalid state (0x5)
Description: Database does not exist (0x2b)
Press Start to continue.
What did I do wrong and do I have to start all over from gateway?
youre the fucking idiot
you cannot inject FBI into emunand on new3ds, you install it into sysnand, backup sysnand then turn that backup into emunand so FBI is already installed
Anyone? It's not even a hard question like all the others in this thread.
Succesfully downgrated my 10.3 to 9.2
How hard is to fuck up from now to free vidya
how hard is it to switch to a new SD card after i've done all the emunand shit?
I've already done up to unlinking the NANDS and realized that i'm going to need a bigger sd card, do I have to do the whole process over again or can I just format the new SD card and copy everything over?
Where are my 3ds saves located? I need to make some room.
I'm also looking for the "good" version of sysUpdater. People keep saying "use this guy's" or "use that guy's" but they're nowhere to be found.
I'm not sure exactly where they save but I'd keep a backup of your sd card as formatting an emunand will wipe it (you'll put the files back afterwards but keeping backups is a good habit)
Does anyone know how to get virtual console games running on cfw?
In this case, im trying to play gameboy advance cias. I've installed them in the emunand but the screens just go black when I try to play them and I have to restart.
So I've followed https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/ until the point where you format the sd card because I noticed I was using a 4gig one.
I there any step I can or have to leave out when I start again with a bigger one?
>start SysUpdater for the first time
ARE YOU SERIOUS
I'm on an O3DSXL currently running 9.9.0-26U with Ironhax.
Is there anything I need to do before following this guide to downgrade to O3DS 9.2.0-20U?
I'm just gonna wait until the tools get ironed out a bit to downgrade and install CFW My heart can't take the thought of losing my saves/bricking my system. Ironhax and oothax should be enough.
If I don't install the update and have other ways to access homebrew besides browserhax, how am I still on a timer? This shit is too much for my heart.
I've followed http://i.imgur.com/tH9FMpc.png until the part with cfw, I have no idea to do next. Is rxMode already on my SD card? Is there anything else I need to do? How do I switch between sysnand and emunand?
Please explain this everything like I'm a braindead 5 years old child. I'm not good with computers.
>Downgraded O3DS to 9.2
>Loaded FBI, PastaCFW, EmuNAND onto SD card
>Launch Browserhax, launch Pasta
>Cannot launch Browserhax again after this unless I reset 3DS, meaning I need to launch Pasta again
What the hell am I doing wrong? Browserhax just hangs on a grey screen after Pasta is running
Why do people keep saying this. I have linked nands, coldboot perfectly fine don't experience the present glitch. If you follow a good tutorial to setup coldboot and use the right rxTools you'll be fine.
Unless it's for N3dses. They may be better off with unlinked nands, don't use one so no idea.
Updating all my games currently. I'm so fucking stoked to play them.
Updating the emunand even when linked won't update your sysnand. Assuming you don't back out of the system settings it will only update emunand. (Backing out kicks you back into a reboot, if you have coldboot setup it won't matter because you'll be back in emunand anyways.) Themes and if you have the present glitch are valid reasons though.
okay, so im launching FBI from homebrew and trying to install FBI.cia to sd there and im only getting Install failed and some error code with the description invalid signature
Use this picture as a guide. When you get to the "getting the 5 files for FBI" part, close it and look up "set up rxtools coldboot ctrbootmanager". That'll help you.
Keep in mind browserhax works differently on 9.2. When it loads click the very right of the little slider and mash A.
Source: SOURCE_FSFILE_WRITE (0x1x)
Module: MODULE_NN_AM (0x20)
Level: LEVEL_PERMANENT (0x1b)
Summary: SUMMARY_INVALID_ARGUMENT (0x7)
Description: DESCRIPTION_INVALID_SIGNATURE (0x6a)
that is the exact text i get.
So just to make sure:
I am on 9.9.0 on a brand new device.
In order to get going, I need to get the homebrew launcher running, which requires me to use browserhax (due to my complete lack of games for the system)
That means I have to upgrade to the latest FW first, right? That is still a safe thing to do?
It does not let me access the browser without a software update
Someone please help me, I followed this guide and now I'm getting a black screen when cold booting.
>Fire Emblem If
>Zelda Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask

>The Legend of Legacy
>New Super Mario Bros 2 and 3D Land
>Etrian Odyssey 4

What I'm missing?
Tried to install Majora's Mask USA CIA and got this. What do?
So what will happen with future software updates after installing CFW? Possibly a stupid question, but I don't know what do enter into goolge to find an answer.
Will the device stay on 9.2 forever or is there some kind of permanent exploit in place that allows updating it?
Again, sorry for the noob question. I just bought my 3DS today
This is the top result, it's what I'm looking for right? https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
Anyone know where to get MH3U's data transfer tool in CIA format?
It's like 12mb if anyone has a copy can you upload it? Thanks.
Yep, it has a multiplayer option.
If you plan on pirating it, only download the version on 3DSISO that has "CRYTPOFIXED" in the filename. That's the only one that works for me.
>finally get to sysUpdater
>main.cpp:148: Result: 0xD900182F
>Failed to get CIA file info!
Fuck. What do I do now? It's not going anywhere.
Yo does anyone know how to get FCEUMM3DS to save? I tried saving in mother 1 but it didnt actually record anything
Fuck the other folders. Just get rxtools.dat and put that in the root.
Fuck, that must've been the wrong guide. Keep looking and there will be a link to an rxtools folder with sys as one of the subdirectories, along with others. Sorry.
Emunand 9 is not starting up (black screen).
Is this similar to sysUpdater in that I just keep on rebooting and trying again? Or shoulkd this work and something's wrong here?
I just installed FBI cia and this would be the next step on the pastebin guide
How to convert from .3ds to .cia?
I've found some .bat files that say that convert them, but I can't get it to work. Do I need additional files or some shit?
>Failed to get CIA info!
>hit B, try again
>Failed to get CIA info!
>try the shitty Brony thing, exit, and go back in
>Failed to get CIA info!
>try it again
>Failed to get CIA info!
>try one more time
The fuck am I doing wrong here? Am I really supposed to brute force this for God knows how many hours?
Can someone post a good guide for installing this?
And more importantly, can someone explain how this works/what all these hax do? It's a lot more difficult to do this if I don't know why I'm doing it.
All help is appreciated, thanks anons.
I'm so close to cracking out my OG 3DS and using that instead, even if it means shittier framerates in MHX.
I know this is a 5 hour late reply but can anyone tell me if I need NTR to use this specific DLC cia?
Also when the US version releases will i be able to update in case of any firmware requirements if I have an unlinked sysnand at 9.2 and my emunand is at 10.3? Will I be able to access RXTools through the browser on the emunand?
You can unlink your NANDs at this point by formatting your sysNAND. To do this you can either remove your SD card and format sysNAND from the system settings, or get an application called TinyFormat (https://github.com/javimadgit/TinyFormat/releases) that won't require you to have your SD card out. All your data will still be safe on your emuNAND after you do so.
So this is an optional step? What is unlinking NANDs good for, what happens when I do it and why would I want to do it?
>imported a black PAL n3DS and CN back in March

So I'm currently running a 9.0 o3DS with 9.9 emuNand via rxTools, since I knew there was 0 chance of getting another n3ds below 9.3. the setup works nice, love it. But as far as actual systems go, the n3DS is really nice and the o3ds is kinda shit. Since I heard downgrading was/is finally possible soon for n3ds, I figured I'd stay on the lookout for a decent priced HHD bundle. Managed to grab one today, it has firmware 10.3.0-28U.
So my question is: what can I do with this thing on 10.3? I have Cubic Ninja. But I figure as of right now it's not safely possible to downgrade n3DS? I really would love to get my current emunand setup on the GOAT 3ds system, but afaik, rxTools doesn't work on n3DS, so is it even possible to get emunand on n3DS right now without Gateway?
>decide to downgrade OG 3DS instead
>the SD card I used for it needs to be reformatted
>Windows can't reformat it quickly
>decide to do a slow format
>it's been almost 2 hours and it's not even 20% done
WHY HAS GOD ABANDONED ME
>windows can't reformat it quickly
the fuck kind of windows are you running? It should be able to reformat it in like a second or two.
Also seems like you selected full overwrite, that's slow as shit and unneeded
Does this answer your question?
How do I load up the homebrew manager once I'm in emuNAND?
Something went wrong with installing FBI before running emunand9, so I cannot install a dedicated homebrew launcher .cia. My guess is that FBI should have been installed to internal storage instead of SD (since that got wiped right after.) The guide made no mention of this, so maybe I'm wrong with that assumptions.
Anyway, since rxTools are booted by replacing the boot.3dsx, I can no longer start browserhax.
It kept giving me an error saying it couldn't be formatted, and that was the only one that worked. Now it's just telling me the disk is write protected, and I can't get the write protection off. Just gonna have to gamble with the N3DS downgrade.
