-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.
I get Error 022-2634 and I'm too much of a retard to fix it. Can I update my sysNAND and do the whole process again but this time with TinyFormat? Currently my sysNAND is at 9.2 and my emuNAND is at 10.3. I'm using CakesFW in emuNAND as well.
When I try to play Smash Bros while using emuNAND it tells me that it won't find the update data even though I already downloaded it. When I press OK and try to go back to the home menu it freezes. I'm using an O3DS and redownloaded the updates from the eShop, if it helps.
o3ds, emunand 10.3
open chmm2 cia, get:
"Error; [string "?"]:111: cannot initialize Sound module."
using chmm2 through HBL works and theme installs to emunand.
worth the effort to make the cia work, or just use HBL version?
Fuck the guide is so damn simple too. I also set my main menu's theme to red before I used PastaCFW and now the theme is at the default. Does that mean I'm booting in emunand now instead of sysnand?
Also, there's another thread up but that anon fucked up the OP.
>I get Error 022-2634 and I'm too much of a retard to fix it. Can I update my sysNAND and do the whole process again but this time with TinyFormat?
This hurt. Just do this you fucking retard:
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/
I need help. I've made the EmuNAND and the NAND Backups in order, but when I was about to do the next steps, I see FBI not on the Home Menu. Do I have to redo the whole NAND thing again?
I am using this guide:

I'm mad. I'm so fuckin mad. Fuck you
Did you enable the patch that disabled signature checking from the cakes menu?
dunno, check your spam folder
don't listen to his lies, there's no way to improve chances.. you have to just keep trying
Did you read the FAQ on the guide?
Stop posting this. Seriously. I won't tolerate this. Even with rxTools you'll end up using NTR for foreign DLC. There's no disadvantage to use NTR with Cakes.
Get BootNTR for other games.
Well, that's my guide, so no, it doesn't help. Sorry my dude. I'll let you know if I figure out what your issue is from helping others, I guess. I've never really heard of people losing their stuff, though.
That's just browserhax not working. Just restart and try it again. You can also try to use menuhax instead if you hold your trigger right after launching Pasta.
Yeah, you might.
My guide should tell you. Not sure which ifle you're referring to. http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
Mega won't load for me at the moment (the main page, any DL loads for me) so I can't upload it there but I put it on mixtape.moe. Refresh the pastebin.

did you install FBI.cia through HBL FBI?
in general, yes. or has an english option. but it's her majesty's english, not colonial.
install chmm2.cia, or use chmm2 included in HBL.
Is there a cia version of BlargSNES that actually works?
Every one I've tried so far freezes on a black screen after launching.
I NEED HELP FIXING MY HOME BREW LAUNCHER
ctrbootmanager's boot.3dsx is in my root
ctrbootmanager's .cfg is set to boot_hb.3dsx for homebrew
hblauncher .bin is set to 10.3 and has boot.3dsx set to boot_hb.3dsx
the .3dsx for homebrew has been renamed to boot_hb.3dsx
This is what I see when it crashes, pic related
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG
WHY IS IT CRASHING WHEN IT LOADS THE PAYLOAD!?
holy smokes thanks to all the (You)'s on here i finally got my 3DS to 9.2
they 3ds kept asking to turn off at the end after installing cia's and showing the same message and beeping. i loaded the SD card up and deleted some exdata folder on there.
anyway now that im on 9.2.0_U how do i get MHX running with translations????
So uhh, anytime I try installing a game though fbi I get the error
Could not install aPP.
Raw Error: 0xd8e0806a
Module: AM (0x20)
Level: Permanent (0x1b)
Summary: Invalid argument (0x7)
Description: Invalid Signature (0x6a)
I'm booting into a 10.3 emunand original 3ds using cakes CFW. I'm installing using a FBI I injected over the health and safety app.
I did this on another 3ds and it worked fine, so I'm not sure where I could have gone wrong.
> This time you're going to select Complete EmuNAND Setup, it will format your SD card, create an emunand partition, and copy your sysnand to it
Does that mean I paste into the SD the NAND.bin I made earlier?
Sorry, no idea.
Yes. For theming emuNAND, install CHMM2.cia through FBI and you're set. CHMM for emuNAND, Menuhax for sysNAND.
I am going to make this a new mantra, I swear to fucking god
>tfw download too many games and don't know what to start playing next
Someone help. What should I play? What's the best?
I tried FE:Awakening but there was a weird line flicker on the screen occasionally that was irritating me
Yeah I can't seem to find an answer for this anywhere.
Launching it through FBI works fine, I just want to be able to launch it from the home menu. :\
im probably gonna play MM3D when it finishes downloading and i figure out how to install it.
funny thing is i bought it used for n64 in 2006 and on release for 3ds and still havent played the game
Story of Seasons
Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
Pokemon Rising Ruby
Ghost Recon Shadow Wars
And that's just what I've installed. I probably have a dozen more downloaded.
I think I went overboard.
Did you write that pastebin? What exactly is my SD card supposed to look like in the middle of line 52. I ended up with 2 folders and a boot.3dsx or something. I ended up deleting those folders and copying everything from my backup back to it out of panic and recommendation. Honestly the guide gets pretty vague there. How bad did I fuck up?
it's a trick, the rock is actually flat horizontal and isn't even above a drop, notice the direction his legs are hanging. That's why the bottom of the picture is out of sight.

>try browserhax, errors trying to use http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax_auto.php
>shut 3DS off and then enter homebrew menu through menuhax
>boot up FBI, FBI.cia doesn't work
That's pretty much all I did. I initially had a red theme after I downgraded to break the newer menuhax but after using PastaCFW it went back to the default so I'm not sure if I'm in emunand or sysnand.
Browserhax just repeatedly errors out, forcing me back to the main menu with a "there's an error, save everything and turn the 3ds off" message.
SOMEONE HELP ME OUT HERE
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG
I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TRY
a million fucking times this. I've been asking this for 3 days. 9.2 > 9.5 always results in emunand stopping after "Preparing home menu" (though it still responds to a press of the power button)
Posting this because it worked for me while everything else posted here didn't.
There is a catch,
hope you understand Spanish https://youtu.be/ahsSje4syLE
Try a few times. What you want to happen is
launch pasta to get thrown to menu
use browserhax to get hbl and boot fbi and installing .cia should work out
I'd say redownload starterkit from http://smealum.github.io/3ds/ and try browserhax to get in after pasta.
I tried using menuhax after pasta, but that didn't work. rebooting 3ds unloads pasta's magic

Just y-day downgraded my Nn3ds xl from nand 10.0 to 9.2 and installed emunand.
used this https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-update-emunand-on-a-n3ds.393701/
to upgrade emunand to 9.5 and all is good.
Only thing I used was guide and some googling
trying to get gba vc roms working on my n3DS.
I've installed the patched agb_firm and installed my gba cia in both emunand and sysnand. But launching in either just results in a black screen.
What should I do?
>Yeah, you might.
And I can't even enter the Homebrew Launcher anymore via menuhax or browserhax.
Multiple SD cards, reput the files on their 5 times, triple checked to make sure, and i keep getting "Failed to get CIA file info!" on my friend O3DS XL. It worked flawlessly on my N3DS but his wont budge no matter how I get into the HBL. Any idea on what to do?
Could somebody save me in PSMD?
the PSMD general on /vp/ is ded
Weird, I just used miniPasta and then as it was rebooting held L to start homebrew up. Ran FBI.cia and it worked like a charm.
Hopefully that's good enough. Thanks for the help, anon (even though I didn't follow much, kek)
So I wanted to install dlc for taiko no tatsujin. I found 2 files. I installed the first one and then unistalled to see if the other one was more complete but it wasn't. I unistalled the second one and tried to install the first one again but now it says "invalid signature".
I'm on 10.3 emunand.
i'm trying to follow the imgur guide in the op and the mega link they give for FBI (https://mega.nz/#!9VhiwYZL!b4NikOPzR5hDXCb1pYaWA2N-4TSd5SnvULbd9LS8dts) has a decryption key, anyone know what it is? thanks.
try a different nightly build of rxtools then
yes. when you launch.rxtools.net it downloads/generates the necessary files, creates the folder structure and everything.
don't think it matters, but i'd do it straight from emunand if you can. otherwise, HBL should still do the same
What did you do exactly? I downloaded that app, put the SD card in my macbook, ran the program (ejecting the sd card) but sysupdater still gives me that goddamn failed to get cia file error
np anon, lets hope all goes well \o
I'm currently using cakes and coldbooting to it takes roughly about ~30sec
Also a note for everyone, if 3D doesn't work for you put 3ds to sleep and then it works.
>Did everything in http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>Still getting signature errors
wtf. is the latest Cakes the issue? I checked the disable sig check box. Any theories?
It's >>127955580 again: these are the exact same instructions I used before.
Would updating sysnand to 9.5 and then cloning that to emunand work? I don't want to spend hours fucking around for another black screen.
I haven't yet confirmed this (or else I'd put it in my guide) but someone said that installing menuhax can fuck up browserhax, so try getting rid of menuhax for now
I think I may have replied to you last thread. Short answer is yes, you should probably do it again if FBI doesn't show up on emuNAND.
The only place I've heard about this mythical faster FBI is from people like you asking about it in these threads.. I'll repeat my answer: it probably doesn't make it faster since the slow speed is due to the CPU of the 3DS, but either way it would be on Steve' github like all the FBI downloads.
I have yet to do it successfully, but if I figure it out I'll add it to my guide.
Turn on your 3DS to boot sysNAND, use one of the many entrypoint to boot emuNAND. There's not really a good way to switch back and forth.
delete the existing menuhax files and re-do it
The same way. Launcher.dat on SD card, go to a URL
Signature checks are the problem associated with that error, so if you really did turn on the right patch, I'm not sure what to tell you.
Are you sure? I thought badges were added in 9.3, and I don't know if badge folder icons were a separate update.
Yeah, I wrote that pastebin.
Can you tell me what you last did instead of which line. A lot of stuff goes on in that paragraph.
The SD gets formatted when you do the setup, so when you hit select to unmount it after that it shouldn't have much on it. Probably just the files it kept to run Emunand9.
It's probably fine to just delete them and copy your stuff back. I normally just copy the stuff back and let things overwrite if there's duplicate.
Great. It seems not many knew you could do that, but a lot of people also have trouble with browserhax after choosing Pasta. I edited the guide to tell you that you can do that now.
How do I fix this, what do I put in with the file?
Maybe my cakes isn't applying the signature check properly? weird. I'm able to install the HBL .cia no problem.
I used these exact files on another o3ds and it worked just fine. I guess I'll give RXTools a shot and see if it works.
>I think I may have replied to you last thread. Short answer is yes, you should probably do it again if FBI doesn't show up on emuNAND.
But how do I go back to Homebrew Launcher? menuhax and browserhax doesn't want to work. And... I kinda did the sysNAND format before I noticed that FBI was missing.
I'M THE GUY WITH THIS PROBLEM AND I JUST HAD A THOUGHT FOR ANYONE THAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME READ THIS:
So for a homebrew app there is usually a .3dsx and a .cfg
the .cfg is the configuration file.
I have two .3dsx files in my root, one for ctrbootmanager and the other for homebrew
Is it possible both .3dsx files are reading off of the .cfg file? It's not messing up ctrbootmanager because that is the .cfg file for ctrboot, but it would of course screw up homebrew because it doesn't have a .cfg file
Could this be the issue?
>delete the existing menuhax files and re-do it
You mean the files in the \3ds location for the files menuhax installs?
Where are the files menuhax installs then?
Now for reinstalling, I keep my menuhax installed on the sysNAND, when I boot to ctrmanager, since cakes isn't loaded yet, if I go right to homebrew, technically I'm in sysNAND right, not emuNAND?
In the lack of knowledge I would say don't try it. I've modded some consoles/handhelds in past and It can be a pain sometimes, but keep your cool and try again. It'll pay off in the end.
I spent roughly 8h downgrading and updating my nn3ds so I wouldn't make any mistakes. (clean sd and everything)
Alright im very confused here
>Downgrade from 10.3 to 9.2

>How can I make menuhax work again without using browserhax?
Not that I can't use browserhax, but I just wan't to know.
yeah sysnand and emunand.
I like to play it safe with stuff like this so I made a folder while on emunand to ease out identification of which one I'm in since cakes doesn't tell
Once you get RXTools 2.6 installed and running what is next?
Will rxtools run the GBA ambassador games? I see the CIAs but I don't want it to fuck my shit up by accessing DS mode and bricking.
woops. forgot image.
I spent 12 hours just trying to figure out simple problems (minor mistakes on my part, weird unexplained shit for the most part though.)
This is brand new territory for everyone so I guess I shouldn't expect answers but I was pretty happy on stock firmware and all I want to do is have access to online play. Here's hoping for a 10.3 emunand exploit on nn3ds soon I guess.
Ok I got to the point where I run minipasta and it works but when i try to run browserhax for the second time it never finishes, help ;_;
When I try to play MXH, its shows the 3ds logo and then blackscreens, nothing happens afterwards, did I fuck up something?
I'm on rxtools 3.0, US o3ds on 9.2 emunand/9.2 sysnand, installed through FBI
On the first step to installing CFW by this guide there is no boot.cfg or firmare.bin only a folder called firm and boot.bin. How do I get the correct files from the rxtools package? https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-more-or-less-catch-all-tutorial.407080/
How do I know my TMD version? I've been trying to enter the rxTools menu through the browser but I keep getting stuck at the Installation Data Suite taking forever to download even though it said that it would take not over a minute.
I can use browserhax, but I just wanted to know because my friend wanted me to hack her 3DS but she can't get a big SD card until past the 11th. So I just wanted to downgrade her to 9.2 and have menuhax permanently working so I can do the rest of the hack when she gets a bigger SD card. Or is menuhax suppose to go away when you wipe it from your SD card once or something?
You should be installing the FBI via pasta
You needed to inject the FBI BEFORE you formatted and BEFORE sysnand.
I really hope you didn't format your 3DS before you formatted your SD. All your data is gone.
I didn't install FBI before dumping the sysNAND and separating the NANDs. How fucked am I?
Could someone compile the latest version of FBI as a .cia? I'd like to see how much faster it is compared to the old version, but I can't compile it myself right now.
They do, if they have been made region free.
Tell us more about your situation. If you're using themehax with linked NANDs, that's your problem. Either uninstall themehax or unlink your NANDs. If have just unlinked them and it doesn't work when launching it from themehax, launch it from another entrypoint, change the theme back to default in emunand and then you should be able to use it from themehax even if you change your emunand theme.
What would you like to do? Do you have emunand already?
Yeah, it will. Just run them. It's GBA mode, anyway. And remember that if you want to install them and your NANDs are unlinked you'll have to install it to both.
Because it assumes you're going to "merge" the folders.
You could try to install the HBL loader .cia by yellows8. By the way, if you're on an original 3ds, are you doing sliderhax properly? That might be why.
it means you need to start over
inject the FBI via pasta
back up your SD
make the NAND
format the SD via emuNAND9
though this does mean you lost your sysNAND data, street pass, your system settings, all gone
Try Cakes: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
There's nothing you can do to make it go better. It's complete RNG.
no, they'll probably support 10.3 sysNAND before 10.3 emuNAND, since one comes with the other that way.
w-wow that sucks man
does anything else install? the signature error usually means one clear thing, that you don't have signature patching from a CFW enable
just some random folder, I have a folder that just says "*YES" (so it shows as a star on the folder)
I remember cakes dev. owning and o3ds but I really can't say which one is better. as I understood rxtools has a native support for installing/running out of region games and for cakes you just need to run one app before that stuff. I'm personally using cakes on nn3ds.
>Because it assumes you're going to "merge" the folders.
i see, these instructions are so damn incomplete and sporadic, okay so what do i do with the other files? starter gen emunand9 folder and all these dats
i did inject FBI before I did the whole emunand thing
The first error I had trying to install fbi.cia was resolved by fixing the dbs folders,
The second error Im trying to remember now but it went from _SINGATURE ERROR to WRONG_INSTRUCTIONS where im stuck now
And the order I went through was
sysnand.bin back up
Let emunand set up run
Unlink sysnand with emunand
Iv made multiple back ups
I'm trying to run RXTools from menu hax.
I already did the sliderhax bit, have an emunand setup, and now I'm just trying to get a CFW to boot into it.
I tried cakes, but I'm having problems with it, so now I want to try RXTools but it won't load from my HBL.
Kind anon(s) do you know anything of my problem?
The TL:DR version is why does menuhax break after doing the emunand SD format even after I restored my entire backup to the SD card? I can use browserhax and install menuhax again but I just wanted to know for a friend.
And one more thing.
Earlier in the thread it was implied >>127953104 there weren't any additional steps to use online.
If I wanted to play Tri Force Heroes online with an N3DS what all would I need?
>Patch, either CIA or from eShop
>Spoofing of any kind?
there has to be another way, I didn't spend hours for this
Guys please, I really need help with this
I posted this a while ago on the previous thread, but here goes.
Downgrading didn't work at all on my O3DS XL. I had to format my system and it worked, but before that I exported my saves via svdt. Now I'm trying to inject them back again, via the HBL .cia from emuNAND, but it just opens up and doesn't let me pick which game's saves I want to manage. I'm a n00b at this, what am I doing wrong?
I haven't really played anything in a long while, so I wouldn't mind starting from 0 again, but I'd prefer to have my old saves back.

>""""4GB"""" SD card
I'm gonna relocate myself, but I'll be back and try to help anons on their questions as well as I can.
Since I succeeded on my downgrade thanks to anons, I'd say it's only fair to give some help back.
Yes, but Menuhax is still simpler. If you install the hblauncher_loader.cia file you won't be able to run it without signature patching still, so you'd have to get to the homebrew launcher and run pasta just to.. lauch the homebrew launcher. Menuhax is way easier.
I had the same issue
(On your SD card there's a folder called Nintendo 3DS. Go into that folder, then into the folder with a lot of letters and numbers, and then once again into the second gibberish folder. Once there, create a new folder titled 'dbs' and drag the files from dbs.zip inside.)
Then I got another error
Dude, refer to this >>127956638

There's a guy who posted a version of pokemon saphre(star saphire) with a trainer with large breasts patch, and also patched to be harder.
Does anyone have a link to the game but with only the largebreasts patch?
I haven't been following pokemon since a long time ago and I don't feel like having to go to trouble just to play a pokemon game with a large breasted avatar.
Also, does anyone have any other screenshots of the game with the patch? I only ever see that one image that appears to be a stats menu. But I want to know if the patch changes any other graphics aside from that only stats page.
Friendly reminder to backup your emuNAND once you got a stable one running. I bricked mine the first time I finished everything and had to start over. Don't be like me.
I fixed it now though and im installing 50 games
Ah fuck, it was 2GB, I did this to myself. At least everything's ready for a bigger SD card in the future, it was a good run, guys.
>Tell us more about your situation. If you're using themehax with linked NANDs, that's your problem. Either uninstall themehax or unlink your NANDs. If have just unlinked them and it doesn't work when launching it from themehax, launch it from another entrypoint, change the theme back to default in emunand and then you should be able to use it from themehax even if you change your emunand theme.
i have my nands unlinked(at least i think so, theres two folders in my n3ds folder).im completely unable to access emunand. anytime i try, it crashes to black
What's the best SNES emulator on the 3DS? Are they worth playing?
That's exactly why it's breaking. Make sure you only edit the payload, HBL file name and boot.cfg and ensure its exactly a 4 character filename
Both homemenuhax and the hblauncher try to look for boot.3dsx
Homemenuhax should be loading ctrbootmanager and the channel should load the payload which redirects to brew.3dsx
>"Dump EmuNAND to Emunand.bin"
This just backs it up and doesn't erase what's already there, right? Sorry for the dumb question.
Hey if FBI is having problems with a signature check even though I'm in CFW emunand, would using bigbluemenu even have a chance of avoiding that problem?
I'm a little desperate here, what are my options? o3ds 10.3 emunand
What's the best game you've guys pirated? Legend of Legacy has been the most pleasant surprise I've played in a long time.
I'll probably buy a copy next week
hope you like shiny paperweights
Is there a simple to use save manager I can install to the home menu?
I had one I believe was made by the same people who made bigbluemenu (interface looked similar) but it listed all the games by their ID instead of their names so it was hard to navigate and extract the right save.
Also the save manager I use now is quite literally the only reason I open the homebrew menu so getting one as a cia would be great.
.3dsx (homebrew) retroarch cores for SNES run great on the n3ds, 60 fps, small dips to 57 when shitloads of mode 7.
.3dsx retroarch SNES cores kinda suck on o3ds, like 20-27 fps in Super Metroid.
I couldn't get BlargSnes to work, so idk about the frame rate there.
gpSP and Gambatte (retroarch cores for GBA and DMG/GBC respectively) are the only emus I liked on o3ds. n3ds has tons of neat cores.
Haven't tried any .cia emus yet so don't know if the speed boost is significant.
Go to 3dsdb.com to find the serial for the game you want to uninstall and uninstall it within the program
If it's homebrew I think they list it on 3dbrew
If you're just updating something you can just install the newer version and, assuming it shares the serial with the older version, it will replace it with the better files
Hey anons, do you believe Cakes or RxTools is better? I'm going to have to pick one of those soon. Running on an o3DS, don't know which one would be more optimal if I'm planning on pirating FE: Fates and Super Mystery Dungeon.
Before downgrading you can back up all the saves you want with a manager
You won't lose online-access
Not sure about themes but as well as badges you can very easily make your own or use pre-made ones by other users that look a thousand times nicer than what you get from the stores.
Here's a theme I made as well as some custom badges
How the fuck get people stuck on the same exact shit all the time?
Seconding this. Any good homebrews would be appreciated really, I'm keeping hans for screenshotting. I guess homemenu-ext works good enough for backing up saves. Any sort of file manager would be recommended.
Copy backup Nintendo 3ds folder back on... You didn't format emunand through system settings, did you? If so you'll have to inject your backup with emunand tool, which is a pic program. Emunand9 can do it too
I've set up everything to the point where I'm at cakes. I placed all the files for caked, including both the firmware and key bins, and everything else.
When I boot Cake from the HBL, I just get a black screen.
Is this one of those keep trying scenarios, or is there something wrong?
bumping this again. can anyone help?
currently trying to use CHMM2 on emuNAND.
Followed this guide, everything works, I auto-boot into emunand. I need to install FBI.cia.
I need PastaCFW to disable signature checks to install FBI.cia.
When I launch HBL through browserhax I get the purple menu I get at boot, giving me the option of pastaCFW (loading gives me frozen red screen everytime), rxtools, HBL. Doing it through HBL also gives me red screen.
When I launch HBL through Ninjhax (loaded through a sky3ds), It crashes and sends me to the home menu with an error.
What the FUCK do I do?
Nope, everything is temporary unless you set it to autoboot which is probably the better way of going about it anyway
Even then you can just turn off autoboot and delete everything. If you do downgrade it's quite easy to revert too.
Yes. Flash initial emunand backup (or sysnand before you formatted it) back to sysnand by holding up and pressing A on downgrade console in gateway menu with NAND.bin on root. Back up Nintendo 3DS folder and emunand just in case Before attempting
You really should have turned it off. Unless you were using Tux's it would have updated native_firm last, so if you had turned it off you could have just gone into recovery.
It's probably too late now though.
Did you format sysnand? If not, you can use it to format emunand again. If you don't have your /Nintendo 3DS/ folder then you're fucked in terms of old data... Try to see if any other sd card or your computer has any backup of the Nintendo 3ds folder: you might've made one at some point
I grabbed a .3ds off of 3DSISO and just converted it to cia myself. It's incredibly easy with Simple CIA Converter. You guys need to stop spend hours tracking down working cia links when the converter works just as good.
Wooooo I finally got the game to install. I don't know exactly which of these things fixed it, but I deleted the .cia's on my SD card and put them back in, and I deleted the Cakes folder and put that back in as well.
I'm guessing the .CIA's might have gotten corrupted during my initial transfer somehow. So if you're getting that error try that. It's also possible that my cakes didn't change the settings properly and deleting those files caused them to regenerate and fix it.
Either way if anyone runs into those problems, try doing those things.
>That's exactly why it's breaking. Make sure you only edit the payload
Ok so I'm going to change my homebrew .3dsx to brew
I'm going to generate a new hblauncherloader_otherapp_payload_OLD-10-3-0-28-USA and change boot to brew
I'm going to change the boot to brew in the .cfg for ctrbootmanager
homemenuhax looks for boot.3dsx
it finds it fine, and loads it
homebrewlauncher, can't load the payload even when I rename it, and i don't know what, that's the issue
>get emunand running, system at RX-E 9.2
>do system update
>restart 3DS and try to boot emunand again
>stuck with a black screen
>forced to turn power off
GOD DAMMIT NOT NOW I'M SO CLOSE
Yeah just keep trying. Cakes has a pretty low success rate when booting from HBL. If you put the files in wrong it would still print stuff out saying it couldn't decrypt or something.
Well I can get to the sysupdater menu, but it wont find the cia files. Booting into sysupdater I understand is trial and error, but the program being able to see the cia files on the SD card is trial and error, too?
To clarify, you aren't renaming the actual payload filename, are you? It might also be the text editor you're using changing the encoding on the file. Try using notepad++ or hex edit the string directly if you have to
Do what that guy told you to do
Replace every dbs folder on your SD card
Run RXTools and Run RXTOOLS EMUNAND
From here head to Settings/Options
Go to Data management/Nintendo 3DS/Software
It should say CORRUPT DO YOU WANT TO FIX IT?
Select yes and then back out to your main menu, be aware that if you have menuhack set to autoload it will do so unless you do your button combo
From here try loading running .FBI loader located in health
hey isnt fbi supposed to show in my sysNAND homemenu? I'm barely about to install cakes and following the pastebin. But is fbi supposed to be in my homemenu ? I dont see it.
And yes I installed it.
So would I be correct in assuming that renaming Cakes.3dsx to Boot.3dsx and putting it into the root of my SD card would not cause menuhax to auto-boot cakes?
There's no way it'd be that easy, right?
Didn't draw them myself unfortunately, I just cropped these.
Badges are only 64x64 for regular badges or 128x128 for badges that take up 4 slots.
If I did make puchis I'd need either very very very good quality images or already small ones.
Bumping one more time. Anyone else have this issue?
I LOOOOVE YOUUUUU, thank you guys
Is there a fix for this yet?
All I've done all day was try to downgrade. I'm going to cry.
everytime I copy the image to my new SD and try to run a game it gives me a SD error, I used all the known guides to humanity and I still got error while trying to launch a pre installed game or trying to install one with FBI.
I downgraded to 9.2 sysnand and currently run 9.2 emunand. Is there no reason not to update my emunand to 10.3 or is there a possibility of something getting fucked up?
If so, how do I update the emunand, exactly? Just like a regular update?
ok, i just downgraded, but i didnt backup my saves, i had games installed there, they are still there tho, how fucked up am i?
will i be able to still backup my saves?, not very fond on the idea to restart my games (smash, KI uprising)
I was able to fix it by doing one of two things.
1) deleting the .cia's in my SD card, and putting them back in
2) Deleting my cakes folder and putting them back in.
I'm not sure which one of those fixed it because I did both of them at the same time, but one of them did it.
Actually... looking at this old photo I took, there is some slight progress.
It fails on 0004001000021900.cia now.
>IF YOU'RE ON J, MAKE SURE TO DELETE THE 000400102002CA00.cia OR YOU WILL BRICK YOUR 3DS.
Is this necessary for both o3ds and n3ds? I'm too scared to go further than this now. Has anyone else here with a jp n3ds gone through this process?
>To clarify, you aren't renaming the actual payload filename
I'm opening the payload hblauncherloader_otherapp_payload_OLD-10-3-0-28-USA in notepad, finding boot and changing it
for the .3dsx file, I have been changing the file name
I'll try regenerating hblauncherloader_otherapp_payload_OLD-10-3-0-28-USA and edit it in dreamweaver (since I don't feel like downloading notepad ++)
Another person said to delete the ropbinpayload_menuhax_USA12288_old3ds files and reinstall menuhax
I don't see how that would fix the problem since menuhax is finding the boot file fine, the hblauncher can't find the renamed file for some reason
It downloads at my full speed constantly
Only issue is sometimes downloads just fail to finish
Use Browserhax to get into HBL
From HBL you run Sysupdater
You downgrade the system by extracting the 9.2 Firmware depending on your region and model and these files are placed in updates folder
From here press Y
This literally all you've done right?
Format emunand, use savedatafiler to extract saves
Make a backup of your entire 3ds folder as well as your initial emunand format to your computer
You can format emunand and back it up with Emunand tool. Have 2gb of space ready before doing. Complete install will wipe whole card so back that up too
I recommend installing fbi with pasta to sysnand before formatting emunand so it copies over
Sorry if this is answered somewhere in the OP and I didn't realize, but is there a translation patch for Rhythm Heaven: The Best Plus yet?
>mfw I have left 6gb free from my 32gb card
I've actually been using menuhax to try and downgrade.
Angry birds. Caw caw cacaw.
Some would contend that it's not a roguelike because there isn't permadeath and there's persistence after losing a game (if your team is wiped out, you can just reload an earlier save).
Also the fact that it doesn't really have the complicated interaction systems of the essential roguelikes (and Rogue itself), meaning that the player can only really interact with the world by attacking and using items. They can't touch things, look at things, open or close doors, move objects, etc. That sort of thing is considered important to the roguelike genre so some might say PMD is a roguelite, or a roguelike-like rather than a true roguelike. But then again, people are autistic when it comes to that definition, including me.
How do I back up emuNAND? Following http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji, it said the emuNAND partition was successful.
Is the option to back up my emuNAND on emunand9 called "Dump emuNAND to emuNAND.bin"?
I've followed up the guide on how to install bigbluemenu on the Health and Warning app. But whenever i try to boot it up using rxTools it gives me a crash.
Anyone having this problem?
System settings should give you a hacked version number. If you're on o3ds use that as an opportunity to. Update directly in the menu. Careful though: exiting system settings will boot you back to sysnand
Post your request and a link to the .3ds file. I'd be willing to do more of these.
Enter System Settings and then leave. Then create a folder and name it SYSNAND.
Launch whatever your cfw is and then create a folder named EMUNAND on the home screen (it shouldn't have the SYSNAND folder)
Pretty sure NTR lets you run any region's cias on any console. You can install it on top of cakes if you have that. Check the guide in the OP.
>Is the option to back up my emuNAND on emunand9 called "Dump emuNAND to emuNAND.bin"?
No, but you shouldn't really need one.
There's a story but it's not story-driven
Minigames are easy to figure out
Menus are easy to navigate
The only game I can't fucking stand is the one where the robot and the lady are dancing. Managed to beat it but I can't get it down for shit. I dread it showing up in challenge mode.
Do you guys think this R4 clone would work on a 3DS with flashcart time warp/whitelist installed? I've seen that it doesn't work on DSi though so I'm sorta skeptical.
Also, for this, do you need to have FBI installed on sysnand or emunand? Or does it not matter as long as FBI is installed somewhere?
>whenever the US/EU versions come out
Yes, only digital saves are on the console/SD card itself.
If I convert a .3ds to a .cia will it still be safe to use online?
It won't carry it's header over because of the conversion?
Rearrange the tiles/set a theme/create a folder and give it a memorable name (so maybe e on emunand and s on sysnand), open up system settings and look at your firmware and you'll know. Just keep in mind that when you exit system settings, you'll be back in sysnand and will have to navigate to emunand if you wanted to continue messing around in it.
I'm sure they will eventually, the previous 2 games did pretty well and this one doesn't really have anything that's too much of a pain to translate like the manzai.
Yes. Everything else is correct.
Download this and either cia it if you're on emunand or just put it in the /3ds folder otherwise
If you're 9.2 emunand you'll have to update it with sysupdater
Very self explanatory, just drop either a 64x64 pic or 128x128 if you want one that takes up 4 spaces. Make sure you get rid of the white background with Photoshop or something.
>he doesn't enjoy decorating his 3DS
Oh well, less fun for you anon.
I was having a hard time to get sysUpdater to work and I got it working right now.
Just execute ftbrony and inside of it keep pressing L + R + Down [Dpad] + B for like 5 seconds and it will exit to hombrew launcher, then just execute sysUpdater and it should work now, tell me if it worked fot you.
I've got a custom theme on emunand with all my games and badges and shit
Sysnand is red theme with only one row of icons that are all folders spelling out SYSNAND (and the cartridge icon since you can't put that in a folder)
It really doesn't matter.
Fuck, didn't highlight the zip.
it comes with the starter kit, asshole.
question: already downgraded to 9.2, bought a new sd card, waiting on it to format to fat32 atm.
i have 2 sd cards, my original one with some games already on it (all downloaded from eshop), and i plan on using a new sd card for the homebrew/cias/etcs.
After setting up this new sd card, will the old one still be ok to use? concerns are that launching a game (monhun4u) will detect that the 3ds is downgraded and will automatically update/detect firmware? will this be detected when online?
just trying to cover all my bases to not get bricked or ban my nnid before touching my old sd card
I used this and followed it by the letter.
Then I just installed NTR cia afterwards.
I was put off because all the coldboot tutorials mentioned using CTRBootManager and doing stuff and that was way too much work for me.
And literally all I had to do was move a single renamed file.
What the fuck why are all our guides so shit.
See those sysupdater.3dsx and .smdh files?
Make a folder in ROOT - 3DS - sysupdater
Drag those two files in there
Load up menuhax
load sysupdater and try downgrading again
How do I get the NTR language plugin to work with Taiko no Tatsujin to show the DLC?
PLEASE help me anons, I really want to use the DLC on this game
>deleting my cakes folder.
Can you spoonfeed me about how the cakes folder should look like?
Thanks in advance.
How do the folders work to differentiate between emunand and sysnand? I just formatted and I've got an EmuNAND9 folder on my SD Card. Just copied everything back over. Do I create empty folders in the 3ds file to represent sysNAND and an empty folder with some other wording in EmuNAND9 to represent EmuNAND?
Damn it, anyone have a good link? All I find are dead or shitty brazilian filehosts.
Also is Triforce Heroes worth playing solo? Or do you need to play it multiplayer?
Format emunand again if you haven't touched sysnand. Get fbi on sysnand first though by running pastafw then browserhax, FBI.3dsx and install FBI.cia To SD
you won't see it unless you run pasta again. Make sure it's there and reformat emunand with emunand9
You have to convert it from .3ds to .cia
>Also is Triforce Heroes worth playing solo?
You can play it alone with 2 npcs.
>install theme on emuNAND
>it goes to sysNAND even though i have unlinked NANDs
>want to decorate my emuNAND with a pokemon themed home menu
themeand adding custom pokemon trainer sprites as badges
I saw this earlier:
to play GBA games you need to
install patched GBA_FIRM to sysnand, with FBI installing to NAND, not SD
install game.cia to sysnand, with FBI installing to SD, not NAND
to play GBA games on emunand, you need to:
install patched GBA_FIRM to sysnand, with FBI installing to NAND, not SD
install game.cia to sysnand, with FBI installing to SD, not NAND
install patched GBA_FIRM to emunand, with FBI installing to NAND, not SD
install game.cia to emunand, with FBI installing to SD, not NAND
I don't know how true it is though, can someone confirm this?
So, uh, my new SD isn't copying the files normally, I think its having a problem with the rxtools and FBI paste. I tried copying and sending the same files to both SDs, and only the old one worked.
the cakes folder in the root of your SD card. It should have a patches folder, a cetk file, and a firmware.bin file. If you need to know where to get those files you're going to have to look at a guide or something.
You should also have cakes.dat in the root of your sd card, and slot0x25leyX.bin
Once again you need to look at a guide for those. I don't remember which guide I was using but hopefully some anon here would be kind enough to reply to me with the guide in question.
If installing a theme fucked something up, you're probably using MenuHax. Make sure you're not changing themes without using the MenuHax manager, or it'll uninstall the hack.
But that shouldn't matter because there's no reason to have MenuHax on EmuNAND. Only on SysNAND. Are you sure you didn't install the theme on your sysNAND, or your NANDS are still linked?
Here's your friendly reminder to not let JustPingo or Mrrraou take credit for anything. They were not involved in memchunkhax2 and if you see them pretending they have any significance shut them down immediately.
We should not be letting 16 and 15 year olds take credit for doing nothing and basking in undeserved glory when others actually DID things to make this happen.
Also KTM will probably never be released. If it does it will brick despite lies being told otherwise.
I just realized what you were telling me to do.
Anon, it doesn't make a difference. I made a folder and deleted that folder. nothing.
I'm trying to do this downgrading business in browserhax but it doesn't work. sysUpdater keeps freezing.
sure... hold on.
How do I create folders to differentiate between emunand and sysnand? Do I do it in the SD Card itself or in the 3DS system menu or what?
By that I mean do I create the folder in the 3ds directory for sysnand and in the emunand9 directory for emunand?
That's exactly what formatting does. You did it correctly: sysnand acts new and emunand is your real OS now. You unlinked because they read two different folders in SD:/Nintendo 3ds/
one more time.
does anyone have the chmm2.cia fix for this?
I'm that anon, figured it out.
If you've used the NTR language plugin, then make a folder inside the plugin folder called "0004000000102F00” and stick the langemu_jpfile inside of it.
If you don't have the NTR language plugin, here you go.
Turn on your 3DS, select an empty tile on the home menu screen, and press "create folder". Only the first letter of the folder name is shown so keep that in mind when naming them.
So I've been following this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-more-or-less-catch-all-tutorial.407080/
Gotten to 9.2 but it seems menuhax wont launch anymore. Do I need to reinstall it? I tried scanning the qr code to do so, but it won't load either.
Yes you will have to reinstall menuhax
Except the exploit that worked on your system previously won't work
Your gonna need to follow the 9.2 guide for browserhax
Once you get in it just install menuhax
I'm not really sure what you're asking but I'm talking about these folders like this
Posting here to see if anyone can help.
Just bought a brand new 2DS, Ver 7.2.0. I followed the attached guide performing the browser exploit and everything was performing well. I'm now stuck at the last part in injecting FBI to emunand. It seems to be done correctly, but restarting the system and selecting the health and safety information it loads it regularly instead of FBI.
Sorry was watching Game Center CX

Should I just reformat the SD card with Windows and try again from before reformatting it with Emunand9?
What the fuck do we do
Are they gonna take away our online ability, or our CFW entirely
Or create a banwave for those who used CFW online?
The theme automatically restored from when I had it installed with either menuhax or CHMM on 10.3 before I downgraded. Those should work just fine in emunand though.
same desu desu :^)
I was mostly curious about how managed to check between them in the beginning before the folders.
I was referring to the SD Card folders, whether or not making folders in the 3DS causes them to appear there. I have absolutely no idea how to tell what NAND is what at the moment.
HEY ANON HERE WHO COULDN'T GET HOMEBREW LAUNCHER TO WORK
ANON WHO RECOMMENDED ME TO EDIT THE .BIN FILE FOR THE LAUNCHER IN NOTEPAD ++ BECAUSE NOTEPAD ARE CORRUPTING THE FILE WAS 100% RIGHT
I SAVED IT IN NOTEPAD ++ AND HOMEBREW LAUNCHER CAN NOW SEE THE FILE
ITS FIXED, THANK YOU DO MUCH
if it's still 102 then it shouldn't be the issue..
Which issue are you having again? I was away from the thread too long and now I forgot what I'm trying to help you with.
>copy emuNAND back to sysNAND
>make new emuNAND
shouldn't be too hard. as for homebrew not working anymore, that's very odd
I'm not sure
Sorry I gave a lazy reply. I think it's go.gateway-3ds.com
I think I tried it on two 3DSs, and yeah the first one it soft-bricked or something. Tried on my JP N3DS and sysupdater kept thinking I didn't have all the files and would stop halfway through, which was terrifying. It didn't seem to break my emuNAND, but also didn't change it to version 9.5, so I'm thinking when it failed it just didn't actually do anything. NATIVEFIRM is first to install so if it had done anything then it would've changed my version number in system settings.
Yeah, it's really good. I like it more than I like real cake.
Just get the pre-patched .cia that was posted in this thread or last.
you need NTR if there's DLC
There's a fix. Some guy mentioned there was a homebrew thing to get sound files from somewhere for it. As soon as I figure that out it's going in the guide. I hate having to use the one in the homebrew launcher.
If you're using the new one with that safemode you should be able to stop it early without it writing to the 3DS
did you check the emunand and disable signature checks patches?
yes, it's one of the few ds flashcarts that still works since they could update it every time it got patched
that is just a generic error and you have to keep trying. It took me days to downgrade my JP N3DS. Days beyond those to downgrade my US N3DS XL. It's truly unforgiving on the N3DS.
I think you can also install retroarch cores as .cia
So using a region free eu cia on a us 3ds doesn't affect anything right?
You boot to sysnand by default, unless you have a coldboot thing set up. And creating a folder on your 3DS is easy stuff so it doesn't really matter, create it whenever you want.
Started this from a fully updated O3DS on Wednesday and finally got it working tonight. Thanks for all your help guys!
So I'm trying to get homebrew on my old3ds currently running 10.3 version
I have browserhax and menuhax installed but as soon as I go to download ironfall from the old eshop , it gives me this error
Anyway to by pass this ?
I have no themes on or anything and it'll stay perpetually downloading onto the home menu without any progress.
I've restarted plenty of times and nothing
And when I go to stop it , it continues to be on my redownloadables
I appreciate the help in advance. I have an o3DS XL I bought a few years back with a DSTWO. I am running 6.2.0-12U firmware, as that was what was recommended at the time. I have normal browser access. But it does keep asking me to update. But I just X past it.
What is my best entry point into this whole process, and can I do it without screwing up my DSTWO functionality?
And actually, on a related note, are carts like the DSTWO still the best/only route for DS emulation on the 3DS?
