Any clue as to why Cakes is failing to decrypt the firmware.bin? I followed this guide (http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji), which worked for me on my N3DS. But now that I'm trying to set up my friend's o3DS, cake doesn't want to launch. I checked the contents of the SD card multiple times, making sure the 0x25key whatever is at the root, and the cetk+firmware.bin are in the SD:\cakes folder. It noticed this behavior: when I set up the files, there's no firmkey.bin in the cakes folder. Then I try to go launch cakes on my 3ds and gives a black screen. I check the SD card at this point and now there's a firmkey.bin. I try launching Cakes and now it gives me dialogue, but only to give me "Failed to decrypt the firmware.bin. Please double check your firmware.bin and firmkey.bin are right"
Injecting FBI via rxtools doesn't work and provides no errors. I did this once with an o3ds, but it's not working on my n3ds. Assuming I did the right steps, H&S should be FBI. What do wrong?
I'm trying to open homebrew using browserhax for the first time on my 10.3 3ds and I got past the yellow and grey screens, but when it should open homebrew, I get stuck on black and red screens. I've seen this problem on a few forums and videos too and wanted to see if anyone here knew how to fix it.
Finally got cfw running on my N3DS
Now the question is, is there any way to grab my eshop games off eshop on my emunand? Do I need to link my NNID and is it gonna cause any problems with unlinked nands?
Something odd just happened to me. My nands aren't linked, but one of my games disappeared. I rebooted and then it was wrapped as a present.
Is this because I went into sysnand and started using tubedns? I still have 9.2 sysnand and can boot into emunand with all my other games perfectly
how the FUCK do I upgrade from 4.4 to 9.2?
- Tried injecting FBI to H&S app from rxTools, fails
- Need 9.2 for homebrew menu to use miniPasta
I'm not sure what path to take. Every guide I read assumes you're >9.2 and need to upgrade or already on 9.2
yeah, no problem, I'm downgrading right now also, having a million problems :(
sysUpdater keeps freezing on step 2, and if I try the other sysUpdater linked it doesn't even start step1
Anyone? This is kinda spooky. The game disappears when I boot into emunand and reappears when I go into sleep mode as a gift. For now I uninstalled said game (Rhythm Tengoku) and am currently reinstalling it.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Maybe I just have a defective .cia?
GIVE ME YOUR DOWNLOADS FOR
OFFICIAL THEMES (I just want the Jap ones)
PLEASE AND THANK YOU
IN THE MEAN TIME, I'LL GO THROUGH THE THREAD OFFERING TECH SUPPORT
If cfw is running, I assume you formatted your 3DS while in sysNAND
while in emunand, upgrade to 9.5 if you're N3DS or if you are on a O3DS go right to system settings and upgrade to 10.3
once upgraded, try to log into NNID, if it doesn't work, come back and I'll tell you why
Well no, but loss aversion and sunk cost is kicking me in the gut. I'll probably get over it but right now it's kinda meh.
Yeah it's not working. What did I fuck up?
I fucked up my emuNAND and being the retard I am, I forgot to back up my emuNAND at all. I want to inject my sysNAND so I can have the same NNID. I don't see an option to clone sysnand.bin to sysnand.
Nothing actually, minor features that dont matter, just a glorified card because it was able to do GBA emulation back when the DS was something.
And it was bad at it.
Get a R4 and thats it, try to find one that works with 3DS or whitelist a blocked one.
It has an onboard CPU. Offers slightly better SNES and GBA emulation, which doesn't matter on 3DS since it has even better emulation for those in 3DS mode. Also the CPU drains battery at full blast even when your 3DS is in sleep mode.
Any way to tell if I'm getting a Rev 2 cart? Might just be a nigger, get a used one at gamestop and return it.
If I update to 10.3 with intent to downgrade, will I lose the ability to access my old emunand/installed CIAs/ etc?
This might be what I need, just to get a fresh start.
back up your old emunand/installed CIAs/ etc.
I'm not 100% I'm in the process of downgrading mine right now, but it's what everyone told me, I updated in order to downgrade.
if you can find a way to get to homebrew launcher you can run the sysupdate to update instead of downgrade your firmware. if you don't want to update to current first
Backup your emunand using emunand tool and contents of your SD card to your computer. Upgrade to 10.3, downgrade to 9.2. Your emunand is probably still there since its a hidden partition. If it isnt format emunand using gateways launcher and inject your old one back using emunand tool
I finished downgrading to 9.2 on a O3DS, and can boot menuhax just fine but I can't seem to get either of the pastas to work. Already tried booting hbl from menuhax and browserhax, miniPasta just displays some code and stays like that, and PastaCFW just stays on a black screen until I shut it down. What do?
>mashing buttons to get out of a pin in MHX
>top screen freezes, bottom screen becomes terminal-style text
>oh shit it crashed
>read bottom screen
...Shit, that thing has a menu? I guess I should look up the combination to it so I can not accidentally trigger it...
so I can't boot up browserhax in emunand. I already formatted and everything, and whenever I try and use browserhax I just get kicked to the main menu with an error message.
I fucked up somehow and despite installing FBI.cia it doesn't appear in the main menu. What am I supposed to do now?
Installing Lego City Undercover to test. Wish me luck anons.
Now for Wii U, what steps should I be taking now so that I can continue to upload Super Mario Maker levels without receiving an OTA Update?
I just installed some virtual console cias on emunand and sysnand (unlinked)
If I delete them from emunand they're gone for good? they don't appear in sysnand
don't want to waste space
Reposting from a /v/ thread. Currently stuck in sysUpdate hell.
I keep getting the
"Failed to get CIA file info" error on my jap n3ds.
The pastebin says that it's because I didn't copy the cia files, but I did, and I even deleted the bricking one on the jap 3ds.
What am I doing wrong?

Im trying to get eshop to work after unlinking without tinyformat. Im following instructions from the last thread but I can log In to my nnid. What do I do to fix it?
stuck on #84 guys, im 90% done so please help.
Says failed to load frim, did i put the files in the wrong place or something?
The browserhax problem happened to me. Use the in-browser setting to reset your data (bottom of the wrench icon menu), then start a new save file by launching the browser again after it kicks you. Then, go back to the Themes menu and change your theme (I just changed it to blue), then scan the QR code for browserhax again, wait for the browser to reload, exit back to home menu before the page completely loads, then launch the browser and try browserhax again.
That's what worked for me.

Have fun with the tech support, I'm burnt out from it. Definitely looking forward to the 10.4 never ever shitposters on Monday.
I can't seem to get sysupdater running on sysNAND because rxTools isn't patching the H&S app and I can't get pastaCFW working without 9.2 apparently.
I guess this is an upgrade to downgrade scenario.
Do I upgrade going to eshop then grab ironfall?
#84 : "Just place the relevant files for your system on your SD card. 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. To review: slot0x25keyX.bin goes on the root, firmware.bin and firmkey.bin both go in the /cakes folder. Now launch Cakes through the homebrew launcher, and hopefully you get to a menu. Go to "Select Patches" and check "Enable emuNAND" as well as "Disable signature checks". Now Boot your CFW."
So on that flowchart it says if your web browser isn't working to go right. What constitutes not working? Mine says communication error when I try to load anything. Does that mean its not working? I just downgraded to 9.0.0-20U from 10.3.0-28U
Someone add this tutorial to OP or a pastebin as it solves a common problem
Trying to install the star sapphire with titties mod that someone posted, I got an error. Description was invalid signature, summary was summary_invaladi_argument (0x7)
What did I do wrong? Was the cia corrupted when I copied it to the SD card? Or do I need to use BBM or something?
most of that is a bit over my head, I'm super new to all this.
this might be relevant
>NOTE : unfortunately the latest version of Ironfall can no longer run ironhax. Only those who downloaded Ironfall before September 2015 will be able to run ironhax.
NOTE : it is currently possible to download the original (still vulnerable) version of Ironfall by using homebrew. To do this, simply install browserhax (see above), and use it to download the old version of IronFall by starting the "eShop - old version downloader" application in homebrew menu and downloading IronFall like your normally would.
upgrade, and use the browser hack version to access homebrew loader, from there you can set up the ironfall homebrew loader? I think? ..maybe?
I'm just trying to get shit done through the browserhack, then going to do menuhack after I downgrade because I cant find a version of menuhack to work on 10.3
this is a list of all the ways to get to the homebrew loader
Someone helped me earlier with the same problem.
how do you install .cia on sysnand (want to launch some dsi files), i know you use bigbluemeny on your emunand, but sysnand?
That's what I did. Just got it working. It was giving me a problem because I forgot to setup the themes shit for the hundredth time in EmuNAND. When you have a problem with browserhax, that's a common solution. Clear browser data, change theme (unless it says it is setting up the data in which case you skipped a step in the first place. You can change your theme anyway to be safe), then run browserhax from scratch again.
Anyone run into the same issue and get past it? I'm on my third fresh install, and I keep getting stuck at this point.
Is this just one of those steps that will take a lot of retries, or did I fuck up somewhere?
RETARDED QUESTION INC:
I got my emunand all made up and shit... but how the fuck do I check what's on it? I also reformatted using tinyformat like instructed but I don't think it did anything.
It took almost the entire day but I did it.
Took my 10.3 new3ds to 9.2 emunand and updates that to 9.5 and was able to install and run the cowtits Pokemon version.
Feels good man...now what?
so i'm using this guide http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
already installed the emunand and i'm at the tinyformat part, but when I reboot with pasta there are two blank icons (i'm guessing one for tinyformat and another for fbi) and they disappear quickly
what did I do wrong? I'm pretty sure at this point it still boots straight in the sysnand
also, the classic homebrew launcher got replaced by the grid homebrew
>use rxtools or whichever you prefer to install FBI over sysnand health and safety app, use fbi to install cia's
is bigbluemenu also working in sysnand? i think i already did that safety app injection process
So, just to be sure, to go online on a multiplayer game like Triforce Heroes would require file conversion from .3ds to .3dz? Are there any other pre-requisites to play online? Like should I use cakes instead of RxMode, etc.
Posted in previous thread but was already dead.
I've recently been playing games without issue. Using BigBlueMenu to install CIAs. Tried to install a new one, said it was done, hit the home menu, yanked the SD card, and shut down.
Next restart the 3DS can't see any of my installed programs (games, cia installer) - system data management tells me the SD software management information is corrupted and I need to wipe it all.
SD card reads fine on the computer.
So I'm assuming something just glitched in the install process for my latest game? Maybe I yanked the SD card without looking or hit home at the wrong time.
Is there any way to fix this without having to reinstall all my games again?
Maybe like, remove the latest game from title.db so the DS doesn't sperg out about whatever is missing re the latest install (I have no idea how I'd do that, just wild guess here?)
tl:dr 3DS info corrupted, way to repair?
still giving me this anon, should i delete the copies of files that end in .HERE ?
yeah, you can install whatever you like in sysnand just like you can in emunand.
if you've done the health and safety injection thing in your emunand you'll have to do it again in sysnand though. just follow the steps closely and do all the version checks again
Thanks for the reply. Just double-checked, and can confirm it's there. See screenshot.
.3ds and .3dz files are for use with a Gateway cartridge only. For CFW, you just install shit onto your 3DS SD card directly with .cia files, which are installers that let you have games on your homemenu, similar to how you download from eshop. After that you can play online all you want safely.
I'm having trouble downgrading my 10.3 I just updated from 9.9
on sysupdate, if it doesn't show any steps when you launch it, that means it's frozen / not working right?
there are like 3 different sysupdate versions out there, one of them got me to step 2 and froze, the other 2 don't even show the step# and just freeze.
which one did you use?
if you're using a n3ds i'd
>use the homebrew menu to launch cakes as a .3ds
>turn the disable signature checks patch on, emunand patch off
>once back at the homescreen with cakes on launch homebrew menu again
>run fbi as a .3ds
>use it to install fbi as a .cia
>yeah, you can install whatever you like in sysnand just like you can in emunand.
>if you've done the health and safety injection thing in your emunand you'll have to do it again in sysnand though. just follow the steps closely and do all the version checks again
yes that was why i was curious, cause in fact i don't have the health app in sysnand at all, is it bad? (i didn't delete anything)
The Pokemon Star Sapphire with big tits mod in it? The link that was getting pased around two threads ago?
Anyone, it doesn't matter what game it is. Why is FBI giving me these errors? Is it a corruption thing, out of region, some other retarded error.
I thought Nintendo could ban us for using CIAs online?
yeah, I just saw that post after I made my post, I dunno I don't have a jap 3DS
I read on the forum someone was able to get it to work by putting the files directly in root, instead of in the updates folder... maybe try that
oh,.. or.. uhh... nevermind then
For everyone who was getting the sysupdater error about not finding the CIA files, I was trying to figure that out for hours and all this mac shit and it wasn't working. Switched sysloader versions to whatever the hell this one is and it worked first try:
My only worry now is I've read that some older versions of Sysupdater fucked with your ability to install a CFW? So hopefully this one isn't that old, but I'm successfully on 9.2.0-20U afaik.
tempted to just give up, been at this for 3 days straight untill 3 am
No, that's if you use .3dz files with public headers, something you don't have to worry about with CFW. People have been playing Smash and the like from CIA installers forever with no repercussions.
>>health app in sysnand at all, is it bad?
>you'll probably have to restore it first. you chose to back it up right?
i followed the whole guide:
up to "You are now ready to install CIAs"
i did a backup at a moment like advised, i think it was just before unlinking nands
is there like a youtubevideo or a facebook group or something i can ask? i usually stay up hours hoping someone replys to my post, not very effective use of time
So I noticed other people were getting the same error as me with the DLC file for Fates not showing up in the game, specifically the 3rd route.
Was there a fix?
i never used the universal inject generator sorry, i don't really know what to tell you
i'd try the install step in decrypt9 again to see if you can get it to show up, otherwise look for some kind of restore option
For some reason, I downgraded to 9.1?
I got the folder form the pastebin and it said 9.2.
How fucked am I?
Pretty new to this so others may have to double check. But now that you've got 9.2 (phew) you can now get onto all the hard work of installing.
Basically this comes down to.
Backing up your sysnand (normal DS software, stored on the DS)
Making a duplicate of the sysnand, which will become your emunand (hacked DS software, stored on your SD card)
Installing a loader like rxTools to load up the emunand and allow pirated games to be run on your emunand.
I used this guide.
But the pastebin at the top of this thread may have alternatives.
>made my 1st custom theme
i thought it was more difficult, might change it alot more, i was just testing how it looked.
How do you access the rxtool's menu on version 3.0? I mean, version 2.6 gave you the option to access the menu by pressing R before rxmode booted but on 3.0 it just boots into emunand automatically
So I've finally got my new n3DS downgraded to 9.2... what are the best CFWs to use now? Back on my original n3DS (months ago at this point, so I'm out of the loop on n3ds stuff), I just had everything installed to sysnand which worked fine but after getting an o3DS and running emunand, I'd like that for my new n3ds. But rxTools doesnt work on n3ds, right?
for the health&safety app to work, you need the hs.app but also the hs.enc?
>thought I didn't unlink my NAND and EmuNAND, so I repeat the process
>turns out I did
>somewhere along the way I fucked up everything and now don't have FBI installed on my EmuNAND
>keep getting an error when I try to install FBI now
Time to update to 10.3 and start all over again.
I'm just a professional fuck-up.
I would load sysUpdater and get a frozen black screen with Tux's version of sysUpdater.
I switched over to the link in this guy's >>127977546 post, and now I'm getting stuck on #5 (which is an improvement).
Isn't there a better way to restart the program or homebrew without turning off the power? The guide says L+R+Down+B is supposed to work but on all versions I tried it never worked.
Why update and then downgrade again? Couldn't you just format system memory or something? Shouldn't need to downgrade again unless you did something retarded to your NAND without actually managing to brick.
Yeah I got stuck at 5 a ton. eventually worked though. That part I knew was trial and error, but the not finding the cia files was never going to work by just restarting, so it's an improvement I guess. Checking now to make sure it did a complete downgrade.
I'm trying to install rxTools on 4.5
The guide on the nightly build I downloaded says I need firmware.bin and rxTools.dat
I can't find them anywhere.
Guide says this python script will ownload the firmware.bin, but it doesn't, just some other numbered bin files.
I can get into rxtools Menu easily and believe I've done all I need to there.
But I can get RXtools or HomebrowMenu to run. Rxtools just flashes and goes dark. Homebrewmenu gives me a red bottom screen. What do?
Will my EmuNAND have my retail cart saves in it?
I want to hack a N3DSXL without losing my save data, and while still being able to pop in a cartridge. If I download .cia files can I still use my cart saves for them?
I've been working at this for hours, reading several guides and other relevant replies in these threads but just cannot work this out.
I cannot get FBI installed on emunand via rxTools injection or any random combination of other CFWs and/or HBL for the N3DS.
How likely is it that it's a problem with a nightly? If so can someone post a confirmed nightly that injection works with.
N3DSXL Owner here, successfully downgraded with everything installed.
This guide is perfect after downgrading if you follow every step
If you haven't even downgraded yet then use this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYo20U3wrk4
good luck friends
Are CIA files supposed to take forever to install? Pokemon Titties version is only 88% after an hour. Also, what the benefit of unlinking NANDs if I can inject my emuNAND into multiple SD cards?
>hear piracy is NOW on 3ds
>won't be here for a week, missed window
>figure out the entire scene is fucking chaotic and primitive right now
so... is the userbase for the 3ds shit or something? you think the chinks would have this cracked 100% by now.
Im using gbatemp's guide. Are you referring to this line?
"10. Rename the Homebrew Menu's boot.3dsx to HBL8.3dsx and drop CTRBootManager's boot.3dsx into your SD card root"
Because that's what I did to get to this screen, the boot manager. I have been able to revert to the regular boot for menuhax but that's useless to me since I want to get rxtools running and it won't show up there, presumably till i can boot it from this ctrbootmanager.
Ok, so your Rxtools isn't working
Saw this on another guide "If you have rxTools crash into red/black screen, change theme in your EmuNAND once! Chances are you had Menuhax installed before creating EmuNAND and now it got copied over, changing theme will remove it from EmuNAND and your rxTools will autoboot as it should! To get into EmuNAND when having these crashes, just hold your Menuhax button after selecting rxTools in CtrBootManager."
Maybe that will help?
Alternatively CtrBootmanager needs to be configured correctly to launch the correct file at startup. I got a bit confused on this part because there are bunch of similarly named files you're juggling round, had to be extra careful.
Finished up getting CFW on my old 3ds, now gonna try it on my new one. Do my current games and saves on it become unrecoverable or is it backed up so I can use them after installing everything??
My shit won't even be here for another 2 weeks.
What are the "forced" updates for the 3ds? does it ONLY happen in browser or can you decline the update?
I want to play games while I wait for a more stable exploit but kinda wanna stay on 10.3
I've got a jap old 3DS LL that I'm thinking about downgrading and getting CFW going on (using either of the downgrading guides + cakesfw install guide in OP) and have got some questions for you:
1. The cakesFW guide instructs to make a dump sysNAND before emuNAND. If I in the future for some unforseeable reason wanted out of the CFW business, could I restore and go back to a near unmodified system again?
2. After "unlinking" by wiping my sysNAND with TinyFormat, the emuNAND launched through a CFW will contain all my games and save data as before. Is this correct?
3. My ambassador GBA games will for some reason not work anymore if only installed in emuNAND as far as I've understood. Why? And how are you supposed to install them in sysNAND without eShop access?
4. Are there any problems with DS mode that I should be aware of?
5. I've got another o3DS that I don't have physical access to at the moment, so I won't be able to downgrade it before Monday. Is there anything easy I can ask to be done with it to prevent it getting fug'd? I.e. would putting TubeHax DNS on it be a good idea? My sister borrows it occasionally
If the downgrade is unsuccessful, you might end up with a "softbrick". This means the console cannot be used, but can be started in recovery mode. The only thing that you can do in recovery mode is upgrade (via Nintendo) to the latest firmware. If 10.4 fixes the vulnerability to downgrade, then you cannot try again.
I WANT TO UNINSTALL MY EMUNAND'S BROWSER AND REPLACE IT WITH THE 9.2 BROWSER TO HAVE ACCESS TO SPIDER TOOLS
WHAT ARE THE ODDS THAT THIS CRASHES/BRICKS MY EMUNAND?
Alright. After downgrading to 9.2 my 3DS wont boot with the SD card in. I can boot without it and if I insert it after booting it will work unless I pretty much do anything involving it. Any help?
My O3DS on 9.2 refuses to run anything using the region free launcher.
Is it the firmware? or might the 3DS just be bad?
Im not speaking about hans btw, multiple reinstalls my entry point, reformats, and different cards dont fix the issue.
Sure can. How do I MD5 it? I also made a CIA folder on my sd card and dropped it in there and installed from FBI.
Here's the link if you didn't have it: https://mega.nz/#!JR5jVQyD!XGKWMZCqll2KT10skLbzv21MUWJW1puosPGAlDcukY0
Because no one has ported over CFW to work with 10.3.not to mention it would,take a while. Thats why its just easier to downgrade and use the tools already available for years now
Seems so. I still haven't figured out how to transfer this to a brand new SD card.
>use 3DS Simple CIA Converter to generate ncchinfo.bin (first button)
>put this file on your SD root

>select the first option about xorpads

in command line, FCIV -md5 path\filename.ext if you're on windows.
md5sum /path/file.cia on Linux. I don't know how to do it on Mac.
After that, copypaste the output.
I figured that was the reason. It seemed really roundabout to me before I actually thought about it.

w-what the fuck did i do?
Emunand tool. Extract emunand using it, then go do the thing with the browser you were talking about. If it fucks up your enunand , use the inject nand option in emunand to restore your backup desu
Thanks anon, glad it's working for you, but you need to get FBI on your EmuNAND. I don't really like FBI injection due to its inconsistent nature. Did you already unlink NANDs? You can try getting FBI on SysNAND and flash it over to EmuNAND if the NANDs are still linked.
Otherwise, I personally think you should flash EmuNAND back into SysNAND and focus on getting FBI.
Please answer some of my questions I think I'm right about 1-2 and 4-5 aren't that important but please give me a heads up on 3 at least
I don't even want to play anything just don't wanna miss out on fun CFW antics
So if I've set up emunand via rxtools injected into the health and safety app, do I have to re-do the whole freaking process every time I want to access games on emunand? This makes no sense help
What's the highest firmware that can still use the browser without being forced to update? I recall the browser forcing updates after some version, and I assume that would be the absolute cutoff point for downgrading through browserhax.
A copy of the firmware that usually runs only on the 3DS itself. This lets you modify shit that would normally brick a 3DS without worry, since you have a backup that you can just flash onto the SD whenever.
>guides in op says to reformat at the end of making the emunand and shit using tinyformat
>guide on gbatemp says to not format straightaway but remove microsd card before formatting then put it back in while rebooting
Some cunt needs to get their shit together and post a fucking guide that's not all over the shop.
I don't even know what I'm doing anymore
And the browser is apart off the NAND, right? So if I end up fucking up my browser/emunand by installing the 9.2 version, I can just restore my emunand have my 10.3 browser back, right?
Should be fine. Did you unblock YouTube DNS?
Fuck FBI injection. If you haven't unlinked your NANDs yet, use Pasta>browserhax (hold trigger to skip homemenuhax)>HBL>FBI.3dsx>FBI.cia to SD to install it on sysnand, then flash it to emunand.
Otherwise, link your NANDs by restoring your oldest NAND.bin (or EmuNAND.bin) backup to sysnand via gateway launcher.
NAND.bin to sysnand via gateway launcher. hold Up when pressing A on downgrade console with NAND.bin on sd root
This link is for ROM injection similiar to what people were doing with Wii VC, right? If I just want to play my already installed ambassador GBA games will those work in CakesFW/emuNAND?
Why can't I get into homebrew launcher in my sysNAND via browserhax (9.2), but I can in my emuNAND (10.3)? Every time I try browserhax in my sysNAND, it throws an error code about the wi-fi being off after scanning the QR code and doesn't correctly load it.
>Whoa, N3DS or O3DS? Do you know the best rxtools for both models?
Both..? There aren't really separate versions aside from old ones (as in 2.6) not working on N3DS. I can't promise it's bug-free, but I'm 90% sure it has none of the issues people are having recently.
>Is there any reason I should ever move over to rxTools
Currently, no. If you use NTR on top of Cakes I don't think there's any real gap in features. rxTools might have some niche stuff, but I think Decrypt9 is better for that sort of stuff anyway.
>Does your guide allow for that?
Yeah, you won't lose your saves. They'll just only be on your emuNAND when you're done.
>You lose region free and gain ???
The short answer (to the region free bit) is that rxTools has lacking/incomplete region free and you'll want to use NTR on either CFW. Due to this, you pretty much don't need to consider default region-free. It'll come eventually, I'm sure, but for now everyone uses NTR anyway, so you don't lose much with Cakes.
>do I just format it on my computer as exFAT?
No, as fat32. Not sure why that anon said yes to you about exFAT.
You should be fine if you get Menuhax, yeah.
Why not both? If you have to choose, though, Cakes for sure.
There shouldn't be. You're not using tubehax DNS or freemultipatcher or anything else that blocks updates, are you?
I believe O3DS doesn't need firmkey. Also, did you make sure to get a different firmware.bin for the O3DS than you did for your N3DS?
Emunand9 lets you flash NAND.bin to sysNAND.
Definitely format sysNAND with TinyFormat.
Check the Emunand9 folder if it's not on the root.
'updates', but it should already be in that folder in the zip so just extract it..
you don't have to, but that would be a good idea so that you can use menuhax for coldboot
can't launch via browser, need CN
use Emunand 9 http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
Damn that's a low firmware! Yes, update to 10.3 while you still can and downgrade it. It's probably the easiest solution right now, right next to hoping you have a cart that can update you to 6.x and above so you can access rxtools menu
>There's two ways to format sysNAND. Just like there's more than one CFW.
TinyFormat is one of them. If the other one was System Settings, don't do that: It'll make it difficult to recover your NNID
YouTube DNS probably
>Emunand9 lets you flash NAND.bin to sysNAND.
Does it? I thought it couldn't...
>have 4 3DSs, one of each style
>until recently just had CFW on an O3DS
>order JP N3DS so I could try out a smaller N3DS and also get CFW
>The great downgrading solved that but also put CFW on all my other 3DSs
>still wanna use the comfy smaller model but I don't wanna start over and I can't really system transfer to it
>changing regions seems hard
>having CFW on all four made me actually start to feel like I have too many
If only it was US instead of JP, I could've system transferred pre-downgrade. Anyone know a neat use for a JP N3DS? If I hadn't downgraded all of them I probably would've at least had it replaced my O3DS as my carry-around CFW machine, but having CFW on my main N3DS XL has just thrown me for a loop.
This is my Nintendo 3DS folder on my microSD, does this mean my nands are unlinked? It's supposed to say there's two folders but there's three.
i think this one is better than the old one.
unfortunately the N battle theme was over 5mb, i dont think i could've used it.
i'm kinda 3rd world country level of poor
and I just found out about all the 3DS hacks, so I kinda wanted to start saving up for a 2DS though a friend recommended me to just save up for an XL, the 2DS isn't worth for whatever reason
but I assume that nintendo will patch out most of the exploits by then
what do you guys suggest?
oh, can I also play DS roms on a 3DS? Playing on my phone isn't very comfy for some games
Yep! Now you're getting it.
It'd be better if you injected FBI instead. Are you using the Decrypt9 method?
The methods used are different. Sliderhax (9.2) is vastly less stable than spider28hax (10.3).
yes I am using decrypt9
for some reason I opened the internet browser, and then went back to the home menu and the app was back and it actually opened this time
why do I bother doing things I have no idea how to work
Only reason why I found my JN3DS useful (besides its hardmod) was playing Triforce Heroes with Japanese players..... aaand that's about it. Dump your SecureInfo_A from it via rxTools nightly and sell it, I guess. Then use that SecureInfo_A to make a JP N3DS EmuNAND and use it on a different N3DS if you ever care to get one (under 10.4, anyway. you need kernel access for emunand)
>can't launch via browser, need CN
>use Emunand 9 http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
thanks, but i'm actually after the dump cart feature. i'm on 9.2 with cakes, are there any alternatives?
braindump.3dsx can do it, but there's also the gateway menu
I believe both can dump save files..? dunno about braindump but i know gateway can. savedatafiler and svdt can dump cart saves too
one last thing senpai, and sorry if im being way past retarded, i just like to practice precaution
it's alright for me to exit out of it now, right?
Is this even worth the grief on a 10.3 N3DSXL or should I just wait for more retard friendly options? I hear the brick risk is insane and a lot of the guides I see being posted conflicting with information as they are outdated.
I thought cias used the consoles unique identifier and Nintendo can and have permabanned that in the past.
I can't get anything else to install. Fucking FBI errors.
3DS XL looks like stretched shit. The 3D effect is ass, too, and lowers the framerate. I wish I had bought a 2DS instead.
If you nab a console with firmware 10.3 or lower you have a shot at downgrading. However, if the downgrade fails you might end up with a softbrick. Softbricks require updating to latest firmware, where the exploits likely won't work. But the downgrade might work the first time around, as well.
Your only way of playing DS roms is through a flashcard.
Yeah it's fine. I mean, it's retarded that there's no "success" dialog box, but you can safely exit once it hits 100%.
If you want to take the plunge, now's the time. There could be a system update to 10.4 which fixes the exploit, removing any chance of restoring a softbrick into downgradable condition. Try following this guy's guides.
in case someone wants to try it out
so if my sysNAND and emuNAND are unlinked I have to install VC GBA cias to both the sysNAND & emuNAND?
>rxTools has lacking/incomplete region free and you'll want to use NTR on either CFW
No worries on that end then. Thanks for taking the time to reply, much appreciated.
Now if I could figure out how to run the ambassador GBA games I'd be ready to go.
Apparently it should work but I don't understand how you install the games to the sysNAND after formatting it.
Is this necessary if you aren't injecting custom ROMs?
So anything 9.7 and below would always be safe for browserhax? Would it be possible to update to 9.7 specifically? One of my physical carts needs 9.7, and having to go looking for a rom and dumping my save seems like a huge hassle. I want to leave my n3ds in a position to still install cfw in the future.
>Sliderhax (9.2) is vastly less stable
I still got browser error in sliderhax. Not even make it to flashed/garbled screen phase, just browser kick me back to main menu. Some poeple said it means it's almost working though.
But it's been two days and it's driving me crazy. So I want to double check, all I need is just the boot.3dsx and 3ds folder from the starter pack, right? Or do I need other files to increase my success rate?
I mean, I couldn't get it working when I was on legit 9.0, but then I updated like a moron, and now I downgraded to 9.2 and it's still not working. Either all of my cias have been miraculously corrupt, or FBIs fucking, or something stranger still.
You should be able to just clone sysNAND to emuNAND without a backup under the manager options
every part of your post is bad..
it doesn't solve his actual problem, he's not trying to unlink, also you're not supposed to use the SD card removal method anymore as it fucks over your NNID
bluecardfix.cia is what you need
I'll upload it for you, but I don't remember where or when I got it, so hopefully it's not something that needs updating: https://my.mixtape.moe/tohfwp.cia
this site scrambles up filenames so rename it if you like
yeah you should, that's actually too low to use cfw to upgrade even AFAIK
The CPU in it is literally a PSP's, it's powerful as fuck and can emulate tons of things perfectly. It can also get firmware updates so it's unpatchable. It was like the Gateway of its time, but also actually good.
It sounds like you're basically done, unless you're saying it's hard to setup ctrbootmanager.. Read how on my guide if you're stuck: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
Does it happen 100% of the time?
It's an option in Emunand9 I believe
Just use the tubehax DNS from smea's homebrew site
illegitimately signed/unsigned .cia files don't show up in sysNAND unless you're in a sysNAND CFW such as Pasta, they're still very much there
I don't know why people still assume there's a problem here (I'm not blaming you, I mean the idiots who replied to you)
That error literally shows up if it fails in any way for any reason. It's super misleading and annoying. Grab the sysupdater from my pastebin, it's got better error messages so you won't be confused: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
but also, you just need to keep retrying it
took me two days of trying for several hours at a time to downgrade my JP N3DS, same for my US N3DS XL
I'll skim it in a bit and try to add its info to my pastebin
>working rxtools 3.0 nightly
>browserhax on sysnand

Looking at http://pastebin.com/hVkShpxz and https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/
i'm not just after the saves, but dumping the full cartridge to a .3ds. it works fine on my old 3ds through the gateway menu, but now that my new is hacked i don't see any reason to keep it, other than the ability to dump carts.
>dumping the full cartridge to a .3ds
Or gateway menu. Put Launcher.dat on root and run SD:/GW/GW.3dsx from HBL (3dsx version is in download pack too inside 3dsx.zip)
I fixed my shit, was having trouble with sysupdate working,
I installed menuhax instead of browser hax, by getting the most recent version from the github that works on 10.3. after installing that restarted using that to get to homebrew menu, and did sysupdate and it worked
ah, thanks anon. i'd tried braindump before but it won't extract the title(?).bin so you can't put it back together as a working ROM
>Or gateway menu. Put Launcher.dat on root and run SD:/GW/GW.3dsx from HBL (3dsx version is in download pack too inside 3dsx.zip)
had no idea this existed though, this should do it. thank you
I wrote the guide. What exactly is the problem?
Did you put firmware.bin and firmkey.bin in the cakes folder on the root of your SD card? the DL links are higher up in the guide.
Where and how are you installing it? That error usually means you haven't disabled signature checking. If you're in sysNAND you'll need to run Pasta first, if you're in emuNAND with Cakes you need to make sure the 'disable signature checking' patch is turned on
I don't know of a game-disappearing glitch aside from an SD card getting corrupted. The present wrapping thing is just an issue with linked NANDs I believe, or maybe an rxTools issue. Either way, unlinking fixes it for everyone. Keeping stuff in a folder won't help.
Launch Pasta and then you can use the homebrew launcher version of FBI, from there you can also install fbi.cia but you'll need to use Pasta before using it every time.
Press your menuhax key to not launch menuhax and then you'll be in sysnand when you turn it on. You can't get to sysNAND from emuNAND without rebooting.
What exactly do you mean? It should have whatever your sysNAND had.
>reformatted using TinyFormat
You ran this on sysNAND, I hope.
Can you describe the updating emuNAND process to me? I'd like to add it to my guide but was having trouble with it myself.
I would try installing the .cia files again I suppose. And yes, you are still in sysNAND. Pasta is a sysNAND CFW.
Yeah, ignore that. Just hit Y.
>yanked the SD card, and shut down.
What the fuck? Why would you do that? That's a great way to corrupt your shit. If your shit shows up on a computer still, back it up while you can, then try formatting the SD and putting the files back.
You need a different firmware.bin than you used with the N3DS.
JP N3DS user here. That happens to all of us.
Cakes > rxTools 3.0 > * >>>>>>> rxTools 2.6
Holy fuck are there any better places to get 3DS roms online? I tried the 3 in the pastebin and they are literally garbage

I was using a different fimrware.bin than what I used for the n3ds. I had tried at least 6 different firmware.bin files that were supposed to work for the o3ds and eventually it just worked
How do I go about replacing the textures in Fire Emblem: Fates with the lewd edits?
I have a majoras mask n3ds xl unopened at home, I think they came with 9.5??
Currently out of the country so I can't do shit with it, will I be able to downgrade to 9.2 after the maintenance?
>Try to load up browser through qr codes for spider
>The internet browser will be available once you update your system via the internet
>system is already up to date/latest emunand
So I finally finished setting up emunand with cakes and am currently installing my first cia to see if all this actually payed off. But I'm still on 9.2 on emunand, can I just take off the tubehax dns to update emunand to 10.3 without any issues?
yes, but if you fuck it up 10.4 will be out by then so you'll be trapped without a hack.
they were re-released a few times. i think it's possible for them to come with 9.2, 9.5 or 9.8
No cakes doesnt have all of this

So RXtools it is now I hear 2.6 is better than 3.0?
Trying to get all the info and my 3ds is japanese So I need different files. firmware is at 9.20.24 so no need to downgrade.
Don't do injection. That's a really old method. Follow my guide pastebin guide (even if you're not gonna use Cakes) to setup FBI.
>I don't know how to do it on Mac.
generally Mac OS works similar to GNU/Linux, especially with CLI tools
Yes. Just move your stuff over and use Emunand Tool to move the emuNAND.
You might wanna pick up a copy of Cubic Ninja. They're probably going to block browserhax before you get your 3DS, and that's a necessary primary entrypoint.
>Why the hell are the binaries and process so unstable? is it hardware variations?
MemChunkHax2 is unstable. It's the exploit being used on >=9.3. It's like trying to shoot a moving target and it misses a lot. Hopefully some other exploits come out eventually that are more reliable, because any software using this one will continue to not work most of the time.
Why do you need Spider..?
Read my FAQ, there's some files to delete on the SD: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
What's the thread's purpose? Sounds similar to this one..
rxTools region-free can't even do DLC, you have to use NTR on either one. Stop using this as a reason.
The creator of Cakes uses an O3DS. Why are you spreading this meme that it's for N3DS?
My guide covers the best methods for most things. It details downgrading, emunand creation, and installation of Cakes, but I would recommend it to rxTools users as well. Stuff like FBI injection, the Gateway menu, and the old unlinking method of formatting with the SD card out are all terrible methods that have just been around forever.
None of them will work better than the others. The exploit they rely on sucks. You just have to keep trying.
follow this guide and just install the BigBlueMenu.cia file instead of fbi.cia when you get to that bit.
I have linked NANDs and whenever I install menuhax on sysnand emunand will hang on a black screen whenever I try to launch it.
I've tried both Gateway and Rxtools and neither of them will get beyond the black screen when menuhax is on sysnand. If I remove menuhax it will load fine again.
Any tips or do I just need to unlink to have coldboot?
i have these cia installed on 16 gig sdcard:
fafnir knight (jap voices)
mario 3d land
super mario brothers 2
layton azran legacy
ace attorney trilogy
pokemon omega ruby
No worry, it finally worked for me and stopped giving me a black screen. I'm backing up my NAND right now.
You think they'll ever get this more stable or are these current builds the end of the road, as far as 10.3 goes? Since .4 is coming out next week and all.
Ideally I'd rather not have to resort to that. It's a japanese game that I doubt will get much attention, and I don't have a clue where I would even begin to learn how to do all that's necessary to get it working myself. That's why I'd like to leave the n3ds at 9.7 where I can still downgrade to 9.2 and install cfw once I've had my fill of the game, or when emuNAND can be updated to 9.7.
I would assume that you can use sysUpdater to upgrade in a similar way as when downgrading, but I noticed that there were a number of complications when a japanese 3ds was involved.
Just get the homebrew starter kit, launch homebrew launcher from browserhax, then run menuhax manager to install it.
Oh, and if you haven't ever gone into the theme settings on the home menu you'll need to do that to create data that menuhax needs.
>Does it? I thought it couldn't...
Why did you think that? Go look through all the options.
>Is this necessary if you aren't injecting custom ROMs?
That's necessary for playing GBA games in general. I believe you install the GBA .cia game you want as well as the AGB Firm to both NANDs if you wanna play on emuNAND while unlinked.
I think you misunderstood what I said. It doesn't work with foreign DLC. You need NTR either way. NTR gives all the region-free of rxTools and more. Cakes has no disadvantage there. My guide includes setting up NTR. There's really no reason to use rxTools anymore, it was just the best CFW because it was basically the only CFW. Palantine was super limited and rxTools was just the first decent choice. It's not the best anymore.
You can't. You have to use 3.0 or Cakes.
Give me more details and I'll try to help you out.
Your answer is not correct for GBA titles. Please don't mislead people.
menuhax is just not quite perfect, not much we can do there
No.. you never have to start over completely. What did you mess up?
Definitely splurge for an N3DS XL. The difference in build quality is ridiculous.
I think I've said this half a dozen times now, but the issues comes with DLC for foreign games, also with stuff like language plugins, both of which require NTR
You'll want NTR either way, might as well use Cakes.
>CIA installing over network
There's a fork of Cakes that has this. I think it'll probably be merged to the main branch at some point.
It can, I'm not really sure what he's on about. Try it for yourself.
Hello again, I've used your pack of CFW and attempted rxtools, cakes, and pasta.
Every now and then Cakes would not boot to emunand and freeze, rxtools did boot to emunand but no FBI channel again. I attempted to inject it, but didn't work in the end.
My scrambled mind forgets how to merge the two nands together again, I've had them seperate since the last 2 emunand reformats.
If you're on an O3DS, yes.
I suppose that's true, but it's not like it was made for N3DS or anything. I don't see a reason not to use it on O3DS as well.
It can't get more stable. The instability is in memchunkhax2, not the downgrader.
You press Y. A is for updating.
Honestly, I'm not sure what the functional difference is. Both read from your /updates folder and install all the .cia files.
You won't really be able to find anything readable, but they go in Nintendo 3DS/oineoig/egbeiormgbieo/title I believe
>do I just need to unlink to have coldboot
Yes, if you didn't, most of us probably wouldn't.
Cubic Ninja will still work, or Oot3D if prepared ahead of time for the right version.
To re-link NANDs you just clone emuNAND to sysNAND or restore your original sysNAND backup.
*downgrade with browserhax
all hope will not be lost, will just be more difficult
9.2 browserhax doesn't always work, just keep trying. Some say clearing browser settings helps.
The first time I setup emuNAND I was dumb and updated my system software after formatting it on sysNAND. So I had to start over and lost my saves on digital games I own. I only have the NAND.bin from back then and nintendo 3ds folder back up. Is it possible to restore this NAND.bin and have my stuff back?
I followed this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
And ended up with no FBI in emuNAND, only a black app that does nothing. Pretty sure I set the destination as DS tho. Since injecting it into H&S is crap what should be my next course of action?
Spider is the original 3DS browser. There's an exploit that can be used to edit the ram, which means you can use it to cheat. You can use it with either, just make sure to downgrade it if you're over 9.2
it won't work on a new 3ds apparently
I found all the games I wanted easily
Assuming you didn't tamper that much with the files, default CTRbootmanager is set up to use /boot_hb.3dsx to start homebrewmenu. So rename your old boot.3dsx to that.
For rxTools, if you downloaded 3.0 just put those files in root, then CTR should load rxtools/sys/<cantrememberthefile>.bin
I'm pretty sure that should at least fix your HBMenu, don't know about rxTools.
>>Does it? I thought it couldn't...
>Why did you think that? Go look through all the options.
I just checked https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-emunand9tool-open-source-emunand-formatter-manager.405921/
You can't write NAND.bin to sysnand with EMUNAND9 according to https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-emunand9tool-open-source-emunand-formatter-manager.405921/page-7#post-5893128
"As for the first bullet point: EmuNAND9 does not have SysNAND writing capabilities. It simply is not possible to mess the SysNAND up with it."
>You might wanna pick up a copy of Cubic Ninja. They're probably going to block browserhax before you get your 3DS, and that's a necessary primary entrypoint.
>Cubic Ninja will still work, or Oot3D if prepared ahead of time for the right version.
Doesn't Cubic Ninja require the 9.x browser to work? (Not just for scanning the QR code but actually trying to run boot.3dsx) or does it just require a browser, period? I remember smealum confirming you at least needed the browser, but I'm unsure if he meant 9.x browser specifically or not.
couldn't find any working download of legend of legacy and no download for lord of magna, and there is no updated tomodachi life
maybe i am retarded, would you care to enlighten me on where you find all your roms oh wise one
I installed cakes because the guide posted here for it was easier to follow, would it be possible to install rxTools later in case it ends getting better support? Would there be anything in specific I'd have to do before just following an rxTools installation guide?
you don't really need to unless you want badges, but just install sysupdater (without memchunkhax2) onto emunand with 9.5 update files and run it
remember to delete the bricking cia if you're on jp
n3DS users, I followed this guide:
and everything works perfectly so far. Coldboots into rxTools emunand 9.5.
I'm attempting to clone my Sysnand to emunand.
This will re-link them?
So after this I can boot sysnand > menuhax > Pasta > HBL > FBI > Install fbi.cia > Check to see if FBI is listed in Sysnand > Reformat Emunand > Boot Cakes and then see FBI in my Emunand listing?
https://github.com/yellows8/hblauncher_loader/releases here u go mang
probably because you still have menuhax installed on emunand. after the initial black screen with all the white text shows up, hold some button to deny menuhax on emunand
I think I have seen one brick where somebody was careful on an n3ds, and it's possible that they fucked something up.
In general, if you are careful and triple check that your files are correct before going through with the downgrade, you will be fine. At most, you will probably softbrick and have to restore back to 10.3
>So after this I can boot sysnand > menuhax > Pasta > HBL > FBI > Install fbi.cia > Check to see if FBI is listed in Sysnand > Reformat Emunand > Boot Cakes and then see FBI in my Emunand listing?
>This will re-link them?
Is your SysNAND the one with all the games? If so, then yes. If not, you're going to replace your very original NAND, and I think you should flash your old NAND.bin back to SysNAND via gateway launcher before doing that.
Hey, I was following your instructions on
and when I start up rxtools it says what's in the pic attached
is that something to worry about or should I go ahead with those instructions?
Let's say that Nintendo releases 10.4 now.
Is there any accidental way the console can update to it alone from an emunand with 10.3? Heard about sleep mode triggering automatic updates or some shit.
Is it possible to restore my entire 3DS with a backup I made?
1. I have a backup of all the files on the SD
2. I have an emuNAND.bin backup from the emuNAND tool.
(3. to be sure, I also made an entire device backup with dd)
So could I just inject the emuNAND backup with the tool and copy/paste the remaining SD files to the SD and it just werks? Or this it interfere somehow with the sysNAND (which is on the 3DS and not on the SD, I guess?)?
The dude that made the guide was a fucktard that forgot to mention emuNAND9 can't write to sysNAND. You probably can with some other homebrew app but I don't really know of anything off the top of my head
I've got an empty black box in my home menu for the EmuNAND. Is that normal and, if not, can it fuck my shit up? Can I remove it? I don't even want to open it because I don't know what it can do.
Those are two different anons actually: I'm the one who told you to get RxTools 2.5
You also need slot0x25KeyX.bin on root, and you can find that in OP
Getting necessary files
Go to the download secion above and download the latest version of rxTools
In your download there are a few files available, open cdn_firm.exe, this will download your firmware.bin
Copy both rxTools.dat and firmware.bin to the root of your 3DS's sd card.
If you are planning to decrypt your titles, place slot0x25KeyX.bin aswell on the root of your sd card.
(Not provided in the downloads, google it).
You will need slot0x25KeyX.bin aswell on your device if you're using emunand version newer or equal to version 7.0.
Place the SD card in your 3DS.
Start the webbrowser and visit launch.rxTools.net.
Or scan the qr code at the end of this tutorial to visit the webpage.
rxTools will be booted, and you will be shown the rxTools menu.
(in order to boot emunand through rxMode you need emunand already available on your SD card,
gateway's or MT's emunand will work).
Gateway Menu, NAND.bin on root, hold Up when pressing A on Downgrade Console
Thanks mate. Forgot I posted this. I got it to work. Turns out, the first file I downloaded, the copy I made on the SD card (And transfered back because md5ing on removable devices is finnicky for some reason) and the second download I made all returned different hashes. That'd probably fuck up FBI.
>You will need slot0x25KeyX.bin aswell on your device if you're using emunand version newer or equal to version 7.0.
lol whoops, guess you don't need it. doesn't hurt to have it ready, though!
I fucked up by running the injected cia without getting into rx mode and my health & safety disappeared, how do I get it back? Do I need to somehow load the NAND backup I made when following the gbatemp guide?
Well, do I have to write to sysNAND?
I didn't fuck up or anything, but I would just like to know a if I could restore emuNAND + SD content without fucking my shit up. So I don't want to test it without assurance.
First of all, fuck FBI injection. Did you do that to SysNAND? It could've been successful, but hidden because you aren't in CFW. Run pasta and see if you can find the app.
Otherwise, run pasta, browserhax into HBL, run FBI.3dsx and install FBI.cia to sysnand
You can format emunand again to move sysnand to emunand, but i don't recommend doing that unless your nands are still linked
if they're unlinked, you should flash EmuNAND.bin back into SysNAND via gateway launcher menu and do the pasta method
by the way, don't forget to hold your trigger button to prevent menuhax from running whenever you launch pasta

If your EmuNAND dump was right after you formatted sysnand or you dumped sysnand before you formatted sysnand, then that NAND.bin should be safe to flash back to sysnand via gateway launcher
yep you have to write to sysNAND or go back and redo everything. I didn't know about >>127986051
so that could have saved me some headaches. I don't really know much though, so take what I'm saying with a grain of salt.
Oh, whoops. I'm the guy with the old 184.108.40.206U 2ds, so I just follow the guide in the other thread combined with slot0x25keyX.bin and firmware.bin with all the other files?
also this is what my root folder looks like, am I retarded?
I'm trying to downgrade to 9.2 on my O3DS, I've managed to get sysupdater to the red text (It's done that every single time) but every single time it's frozen on that screen. Am I doing something wrong or do I just need to be patient?
You didn't have to copy all those files over, but I think that should work. Make sure you do that too when you have to set up rxtools 2.5 post-FBI injection
If it's the same 3DS, yeah, I imagine that'd be fine.
My Triforce heroes isn't up to date and plays fine. It's digital, though.
>Doesn't Cubic Ninja require the 9.x browser to work?
No, Cubic Ninja can use ninjhax1 or ninjhax 2, making it work with tons and tons of firmwares. If you're one an N3DS it is 9.0+, though.
Guy who wrote the Cakes guide here: I've created such things for O3DS and N3DS but I'm not sure if I should put them in the guide or not. I worry that people will just skip to using them and then not know how CFW works.
Your emuNAND works with any CFW so you can just install rxTools alongside Cakes and boot either from ctrbootmanager.
>remember to delete the bricking cia if you're on jp
Any idea which one it is?
Did you run Pasta before FBI?
Don't bother checking if it's there. You'd have to be in Pasta to see it which would require a bunch of those steps again. If FBI says it's installed, trust it.
Nah. I have one of each 3DS model/size and they all suck to force power off and back on.
No. It downloads updates, they can't be auto-installed.
might as well switch to Cakes too
It's got a lot of bugs. I'd use an older one if you can. I think 11/10's is safe.
>Do I need menuhax on emunand to get ctrboot to boot into emunand
no, in fact that would make everything worse
I followed this guide http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
and now I'm at the final part of booting into CakesFW via CTRBootmanager.
But it just crashes all the time on my n3ds. Is it that unstable?

Eh, I dunno, I just remember smealum saying this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/ninjhax-on-8-1-n3ds-without-browser.382462/#post-5361924

You mean for playing online?
>the last time the supported emunand firmware for n3DS was updated was July
Aight good. I just want to make sure that the only way the console is going to update is if I'm willing to.
Also, is it normal for the console to take about 5 seconds to load the titles on the SD card on the menu? I'm using a class 10 samsung SDHC.
any reason why cakesfw sometimes freezes on execution? I also tried the sysupdater to 9.5 (n3ds) and while it said it was successful, emunand wouldn't boot past the 'initializing home menu screen', had to recover the old nand
