-The old eshop downloader is broken so you cant download Ironfall 1.0 anymore!
-NOTICE: January 11th http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/01/extended_nintendo_network_maintenance_on_the_way
-Menu/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.

I got cakes installed and booted into emunand.
So i need to use cakes to get into emunand every time?
Well i'm glad I used cakes because Cakes worked first fucking time all i've heard from people who use rxtools is they get errors all the time
anything that looks like these. they're .bin files on the root of your card
Yeah, shit's fucked on emunand. Use config.cia to accept them (run it, go into "EULA config" and set the value to ff:ff)
D I E S
P U N T O
T R E S
eshop anon here. i've been looking through the recent threads and couldn't find anything on the topic.
for anyone else i'm on cakes and can't access the eshop via my 10.3 emuNAND (returns a 022-2634 error). send help.
>Just set everything up like normal right?
You need to be more specific.
Otherwise yes, just set up a CFW and you're done (assuming you don't care not having FBI on sysnand, in which that case you should install it via pasta+browserhax)
>Then I went back to emunand9 tool then restored the emunand backup when I then went into emunand and a kitten crawled over my system settings launching I realized it was 10.3 rxtools mode.
your other option is to rxtools to inject FBI and sysupdater to 9.2
pretty much the same risk, honestly, but i think upgrading is better: downgrading has some weird behaviors, i hear
Wait doing the 3DS startup settings like nickname, date, internet, and parental controls is optional? I mean for sysnand immediately after running tinyformat. You still have to fill out whatever shit anyways don't you?
If you intend to do everything in EmuNAND then yes, SysNAND startup settings is completely pointless to put in actual information because it'll just end up using the info you put in for EmuNAND (which is the info you've always had)
Guys, im running rxTools and i have a question,
can i use .3ds roms? or only .cia roms?
If it is possible to use .3ds roms how can i do it?
CFW only uses .cia files. As for converting 3ds to cia:
It takes about 10 minutes, all in all. Though for sake of convenience you might as well just look for .cia downloads in the first place.
thanks, i'm using cakes though and this is what i found:
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/
Can someone make these steps less vague/more retard friendly for me?
Exactly what folder am I looking to rename?
The backup is done through the emuNAND tool on the 3DS but how do I re-inject it later?
Is there a start to finish tutorial on how to get all of this to work? I tried it practically twice before around Wednesday, and I got frustrated and quit.
I tried a few tutorials, but I haven't had much luck, so I decided to just format my system and sd card and start completly fresh, so can anyone link me a really good guide for being able to instlal CIAs on o3ds?
Also my health and safety app is somehow gone, but I guess it'll come back somehow
Running 10.3 CakesFW, how do I install cias to emuNAND?
The only way I've gotten cias to install is doing
but after I try this, the cias show up (missing thumbnails) in sysnand for a second and then disappear.
When I try a reinstall them, FBI says I already have them installed. What am I doing wrong?
>Also my health and safety app is somehow gone, but I guess it'll come back somehow
It disappeared, meaning it injected properly: OFW doesn't like unsigned CIAs, so it hides it until you run a CFW in sysnand. Try using pasta or cakes in sysnand and you should see H&S again. If you run it and it's FBI, use it to install FBI.cia
a "legit" cia can only be made of a game that came with a special edition 3ds (animal crossing: new leaf, smash bros, etc), you can't make one of your own
just downgrade dude it's not hard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=184w9Pm_Bl8
If you wait, you will regret it: 10.4 highly likely coming out on Monday, and you can't use the web browser after that.
If you softbrick from downgrading, you will be forced to update.... to 10.4. You need to downgrade now, while you still can.
if your sysnand is empty (nothing installed), try installing something to emunand, then look inside the "title" folders of each one
the one that's empty is sysnand, and the other is emunand
>finally get a reply
>already uninstalled MH4U
>have to spend another 2 hours installing just to see if it works
If it does work then you're a fucking god, but good lord that's a long time.
I've downgraded to 9.2 installed menuhax, etc, backed up NAND, injected the correct FBIs (3077) and rxTools is telling me "Failed to load NATIVE_FIRM: 4 Reboot rxTools and try again".
Rebooting it doesn't solve the issue, what do I do from here?
Q: rxTools gives me a "unable to load NATIVE_FIRM: 4/5"
A: You need to look up the firmware.bin needed, try also another version of rxTools or Cakes
Well I get the exact same error with MHX as well, so hopefully this is the solution. Thanks in advance if it works <3
hey I'm having trouble with my N3ds I downgraded it but gateway wont open I have launcher.dat on my SD the site just endlessly loads. Someone said you don't need gateway. I am not exactly sure what to do next.
From what I think I understand the process is
>Format emunand <- im stuck here
>install cfw <-- dont know what this is but im going with the cakes one in the guide
>install CIA manager im doing FBI
Spoonfeed me pls
Do you think that I could fix a similar problem with a process like that? I already installed the updates, but it still tells me that I need to install them.
I'm using a Smash Bros cartridge and an O3DS, if it helps. Thanks!
Cakes doesn't tell you if you're on EmuNAND correct? So how am I supposed to tell if I'm updating EmuNAND? Just an extremely safe hunch? From what I was told exiting System Settings brings you back to SysNAND. I SHOULD be updating EmuNAND if I enter System Settings while on EmuNAND right?
Ignore me, I'm retarded, I reinstalled an older version of rxTools and forgot to copy across the firmware.bin I created earlier that was in the old rxtools folder I deleted, everything works fine now.
Change theme in emunand to distinguish. you'll know if you go to system settings and it says something like cakes fw next to firm version
hold L as you boot cakes
no like. update with your 3ds. latest firm is hackable, downgrade is inconsistent: use latest for consistency purposes
I have an 8.1 2DS with unlinked NANDs that's fully working
How do I go about transferring that shit to my higher capacity SD card that just arrived?
do I copy the nand through gateway exploit, or do I just drag files over?
Which one of these two is the right file for an european O3DS? One is the .ttp file and the other is a zip file
>download EmuNAND tool
>use it to copy emuNAND from old SD
>format new SD with emunand9
>use EmuNAND tool v 1.0.1 to put old emuNAND into new SD
>copy the rest of the files over by drag and drop
Using http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax.php to try and install browserhax, but going there on my 3ds takes me to a website with a little bar at the top left, clicking said bar gives an error and restart.
What am I doing wrong?
The lower one is the correct one you should use for the downgrader, assuming you're using julian's or tux's builds of sysupdater.
sweet, good luck with the downgrade. make sure you get the right downgrade pack or you will brick. be very careful!
GL, grats on getting it to work not too long after you started trying (people tried for hours sometimes, lol)
Just make a folder in EmuNAND called "EMU" or something. If you see it, you're in emuNAND.
> I SHOULD be updating EmuNAND if I enter System Settings while on EmuNAND right?
Yes. Exiting System Settings does boot you back to SysNAND though. Your best bet is to set up autoboot into EmuNAND.
In another note, 3dsiso is fucking awful. Keeps returning errors while I'm trying to make an account. Anyone got those MEGA packs with a bunch of games?
So I remember making backups of both my emuNAND and sysNAND.
The EmuNand9 folder on my SD card contains EmuNAND.bin and NAND.bin. Same filesize.
Which one of these is my emuNAND backup that I need to re-inject later?
Well, where do you guys find your games ?
Can't seem to find Monster Hunter X English Patch in the CIA format
Okay guys, quick question.
I have O3DS on 4.4 and I've already installed CFW and using rxTools via the internet browser.
Problem is, I don't aways have internet access. Is there a way to run rxTools offline?
some things that have worked for me after getting the same error for a while
1)use the QR code (google for it) to access the site
2)initialize save data inside in your browser options
3)tap the right side of the scroll bar
4)always make sure to wait at least 10-15 seconds before tapping the bar after accessing the site
Here's the QR code. Might as well just save it to make it easier for yourself. And for whatever reason I've had more luck pressing the slider slightly to the right of the center. Does the position of the scroll bar even matter or is that superstition?
I was just looking for some of the games in there. Cheers bro.
EASIEST METHOD: If you have a DS flashcard that works on your 3DS, open the MSET folder in the rxtools download and put the .nds file (rxinstaller.nds) on your DS flashcard's SD card. Now run it with your DS flashcard and select "rxtools 4.x".
To install MSET with FBI, you need to have FBI 1.4.14 or higher on your sysnand. Simply launch rxmode sysnand, launch FBI, and press SELECT. Now, select "rxtools3.x 4.x". MSET should now be installed.
To install MSET with the internet browser, simply put the rxinstaller.bin (from the MSET folder) on your SD card root. Then launch the browser and go to http://dukesrg.github.io/?rxinstaller.bin or http://dukesrg.no-ip.org/3ds/cakes/?rxinstaller.bin . It should freeze and crash, and send you back to the home menu. MSET should now be set up.
To launch rxTools via MSET, just turn on your 3ds, go to System Settings-> Other Settings-> Profile-> Nintendo DS Profile, and rxTools should boot.
You need rxtools nightly build
Dumb question but just to be clear, I'm supposed to be installing the Big Blue and HBLauncher cia's to Emunand right?
Shit sure is unreliable as fuck, but I did it!
Maybe if youre retarded yesh i guess that looks a little hsrd to follow
2.6 doesnt load through MSET, Ive tried. I had to switch to the nightly build
Now end yourself
What should I do if H&S is on both sys and emuNAND and it's not FBI?
>you'll know if you go to system settings and it says something like cakes fw next to firm version
Really? I just see "Ver. 9.2.0-20U" with no cakes fw or whatever.
Does Cakes tell you if you're on emunand in system settings on yours? I just want to know if screwed something up or if it's an RXTools feature only.
Then again I guess I should setup RXTools first and maybe try updating through that.
Im such a dumbass i almost died, i downgraded and installed all the shit and whatever im already playing games but i did it on the wrong SD card now i barely have space to install more games, do i need to do EVERYTHING again on my bigger SD? or what do i need to copy / do ? if anyone can help i would be grateful forever.
O3DS yes. N3DS must manually update to 9.5 via sysupdater. make an emunand backup with emunand9 or emunand tool before attempting.
put starter.zip contents on root. get from smealum site
fuck fbi, are your nands still linked? get FBI on sysnand by running pastacfw/cakes>using trigger button to cancel homemenuhax>browserhax>HBL>FBI.3dsx>install FBI.cia to SD
it will now be on sysnand unsigned, which you cannot see in OFW so you must run pasta to confirm
then format EmuNAND with EmuNAND9 and then format SysNAND with Tinyformat after
then try preparing CFW like rxtools/cakes
IN THE PASTEBIN LINKS
PLEASE WRITE THAT YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE FILES BEFORE YOU TRY DOING THE EXPLOITS
NONE OF THE PASTEBINS HAVE THIS
THEY JUST TELL YOU GO TO *LINK* AND DO THIS AND THAT
THIS IS WHAT WILL STOP ALL THE QUESTIONS
>Does Cakes tell you if you're on emunand in system settings on yours
it doesnt say youre in emunand on cakes. just make a folder in emunand thatll tell you if youre in the right one
1. Download EmuNAND tool.
2. Insert your Old SD card into your PC.
3. Extract your EmuNAND from there and put it somewhere sage.
4. Copy the entire contents from your Old SD to your PC.
5. Insert your new SD Card into your PC.
6. Use a tool like MiniTool Partition Manager to format the card to Fat32. Don't fuck that up and wipe your HDD or something.
7. Insert your SD card into your 3DS after putting the Gateway Launcher.dat on there.
8. Do the Backup Emunand thing again on your new SD card.
9. Inject your old emunand file (that you put safe) onto your new SD card.
10. Copy the contents of your old SD card to the new one.
11. Insert and you should be done.
If v1.0.3 gives an error, try v1.0.1 of EmuNAND tool.
Yeah, meant to help the other anon but went full retard.
Just to clarify since I've had 2 hours sleep in the last 3 days, after downgrading to 9.2, installing rxtools, and booting into emunand, I can, and should, update the system in EMUNAND to 10.3?
EmuNAND Tool is a PC program, just google for it
EmuNAND9 is also a google-able program. Copy all of its folder contents to SD root except for Launcher.dat and the .nds, then launch it via HBL from homemenuhax
I backed up my NAND and my SD card, then created a new emunand using emunand9, which formatted my SD card. It then rebooted my 3DS and created what looks like a new profile.
I then restored all of my files into my SD card, but it's still using the blank profile.
What happened and what can I do to get my old shit back?
Wait. You DO have your /Nintendo 3DS/ folder though, right?
You likely booted into your formatted SysNAND. Your emunand exists on your sd card and should be booted via a CFW like RxTools or Cakes
Yes, I do have it.
What I don't understand is that I didn't format my sysNAND at any point in the process.
It also looks like Menuhax was removed from my sysNAND. I'm about to browserhax again and continue the process (i.e. install a CFW), should I do so?
I moved my MK7 folder to save some space to play Layton. Once finished I removed my Layton folder to play MK7 but the icon won't appear on the menu, and Layton's icon is still there. THis is weird because I did the same thing with MHX and it worked fine. Any info ?
Which tutorial should I follow after using the imgur guide? They're several, and I just don't want to screw up this time.
I assume the "AFTER THE DOWNGRADE (autobooting CakesFW)" guide, right?
I read that if there are 2 random numbers/letters folders in the "nintendo 3ds" folder on the SD card, I have the nands unlinked, and I do. Following http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji guide, I did "format system memory" without the sd card in when I set it all up.
Following you now I have FBI on the home menu of sysnand (but can only use it after using pasta in the bootmenu).
Should I do those formatting things you said and just start over or am I just missing something stupid?
that's the version I downloaded, it mentions putting the 3DS folder in the root of your SD, I assumed it would be installed through a .cia like others
I'm considering just doing everything again, as I just did it on the small card as practice and have no save files or anything anyway. I'd have to install & learn to fuck around with the HBL first anyway, as I don't even have that yet
So, I managed to run the HBL via Browserhax but I couldn't install menuhax because since I formatted my SDcard I had no theme data. I rebooted the 3ds, opened the theme menu and created the theme data, but now the browserhax got stuck on the last yellow screen instead of glitching and booting HBL. What gives?
I need some clarification. Does tinyformat do something to the 3ds itself or the emunand partition of the SDcard?
I'm about to unlink my nands but I was just wondering something.
I got tinyformat and put it in my SD card. Then I booted rxtool while holding L, then went into sysnand through there.
However, when I checked the firmware it was the custom firmware not the original one. Does this still mean I'll still format sysnad when I run the program?
If you're not sure what you did, put the NAND.bin backup back on your 3DS and flash it back to sysnand.
Browserhax to set up menuhax. Download gateway-3ds.com latest .zip, put launcher.dat on root and merge the /3ds/ folder from the 3dsx.zip in that same archive
Homemenuhax to HBL (need starter.zip contents on sd card too) and launch GW.3dsx
Press A while holding Up on Downgrade Console to flash NAND.bin back to SysNAND
Reboot into homemenuhax, launch pastaCFW, hold trigger button to prevent menuhax, run browserhax into HBL. Run FBI.3dsx in HBL and install FBI.cia to SD
After that, format EmuNAND with EMUNAND9, then format SysNAND with TinyFormat.
Once again, reboot into homemenuhax, launch pastaCFW, hold trigger button to prevent menuhax, run browserhax into HBL. Run FBI.3dsx in HBL and install FBI.cia to SD
Finally, copy all your files back on your 3DS
If you followed those instructions as-is, you should now have FBI (CIA installer) on SysNAND and EmuNAND, and you should also have all your games+saves reading from emunand, but sysnand should look clean.
At this point, you should be ready to prepare a CFW like RxTools or Cakes so you can boot into your new EmuNAND.
I run it on emunand but for some odd reason wen I change memory cards the effects carries to the other 3ds. I remember doing it on emunand since is in therr were I installed tinyformat.
Very possible, but you should use EmuNAND for as much of your stuff as you can, because if your SysNAND bricks, you can't restore it.
EmuNAND, on the other hand, you can.
Correct@2 folders. See >>127998508
for proper setup
format emunand again and try to re-inject the NAND.bin. What is the filesize of that NAND.bin in bytes, by the way? It could be a bad dump... Got any others?
Are there less cancerous pages than 3dsiso? Most of those links are adfly links to shitty filehosters
Hey, sorry for the dumbass question, but I'm new to PS Vita hacking. I bought an old 1001 model, but the previous owner has downloaded the 3.50 official firmware. I have a PS3 slim, so I can do some of the homebrew stuff, but how do I downgrade the firmware on the Vita?
What? AGB_FIRM and TWL_FIRM must be installed to NAND on both EmuNAND and SysNAND to work in EmuNAND
Your VC games should be installed to SD card on both NANDs to work in EmuNAND
Or just install the FIRMs to SysNAND NAND and VC games to SysNAND SD and it'll run in SysNAND.
Good luck. Please note that even if you do get FBI on SysNAND you won't actually see it unless you run a CFW like pasta on SysNAND.
This is because OFW doesn't like non-legit CIAs on home menu and it tries to hide them. When you boot into a CFW like pasta (which boots into sysnand, not emunand), it patches signature checks so you can see+run your non-legit CIAs.
I'm using julian20 sysupdater and pressed Y, but nothing is happening. Do I just have to wait?
Am I trying to reinject the NAND.bin or EmuNAND.bin? Anyway they're both 965.632KB.
I'm trying to to get my eshop to work by doing this:
Should I have formatted through the EmuNAND tool as opposed to System Settings? I put the EmuNAND.bin on my laptop, put the card in and that's where I'm stuck since emuNAND Tool doesn't recognize it.
Put your card in the computer. Does it say something like GATEWAYNAND or EMUNAND9SD?
If so, then you've formatted EmuNAND on that card.
NAND.bin, assuming you dumped it before you formatted. Otherwise, EmuNAND.bin
(By the way if NAND.bin is a dump before you formatted, having that EmuNAND.bin is redundant because formatting EmuNAND literally takes SysNAND and copies its NAND.bin over to the SD card as a hidden partition on your card)
For future reference: You can extract your NAND.bin from EmuNAND with the PC program, EmuNAND Tool. You can also inject with it, so make restore points whenever doing anything dangerous in EmuNAND.
>Y a couple of times
>B a couple of times if it doesn't work
>Reboot if B doesn't work
>Wait like 2 minutes before pressing Y this time
keep on doing this until it works. sometimes sysupdater just needs to be left a minute.
Install it to emunand if you fear bricks. Make a restore point first.
Otherwise, no. Nobody's going to test it for you here.
It's a JP game, so you'll have to either run it through RXTools or Cakes+NTR
mana tama plus is good love plus ntr by the way
what other anon said: just keep trying. good luck! (try tux build of sysupdater if it keeps giving you issues, but people can try for hours until it finally works, so be persistent too)
from what ive read to install games i need to use pasta but that installs to sysnand doesnt it?
when i try to install to emuNAND using cakes the install fails
is installing to sysnand the only way?
One more question.
I've tried getting firmware.bin using two different methods (the .bat and the python script).
However, both files have different md5 hashes (A9DCD99A360E8629810F8ED08403D746 and 175FAF55FBEAA103880FF81EF9960D41)
Which one is the correct one?
O3DSXL by the way.
GOT IT AT THE SECOND TIME
Dunno, try both and see which boots into EmuNAND
Worst case scenario, you crash and hard poweroff by holding the power button until the light comes off, then you try the other one
Sorry, shit's so undocumented it's hard to tell which CFW works anymore, so I just upload my own for N3DS users (don't have a pack for O3DS though...
Where do I get .cia's?
WHERE ME GAEMS ANON?
enjoy weeding through forums to find a few threads of non niggers
alternatively, there's a tumblr with games that are uploaded on mega, the only DDL site with a reasonable speed nowadays
check pastebin in OP
I was not able to install AGB_FIRM to EmuNAND. Neither with FBI, nor with title manager, nor with FBI through homebrew launcher.
In sysNAND it worked fine. Do I just run stuff in sysNAND and forget about it?
I'm running Cakes btw.
I tried to verify the MD5/SHA1 checksum of my firmware downgrade .zip following this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/simple-guide-to-downgrading-your-3ds.407888/ and everything was the same except I didn't have the question mark at the end of my SHA1 checksum. Is that a correct file or should I just download another one?
Jesus fucking Christ, I was literally shaking. I finally did it!
Now, what do I do first? Setup CFW, NAND backup or unlinking?
is it common for the BBM menuhax autoboot to never work? Ive followed the steps to the absolute detail and triple checked and I can not get rxTools to autoboot, menuhax just freezes on boot instead
Alright, but what about my eshop games? Can I play them on emunand if I format?
If not, can you still play normal eshop games on sysnand (especially online) without updating your firmware?
No, that would ruin the whole point of emunand
Emunand exists to prevent bricks by installing bad stuff to sysnand, so you can recover from emulated bricks
Try entering eShop on your EmuNAND. Update to 10.3 if you're on O3DS via system settings (double check that you are truly in emunand by setting a theme on the NAND that won't let you install. also exiting system settings boots you into sysnand).
If N3DS, let eShop fail to load and don't update. Try to install CIAs on emunand again and see if that worked.
Grats, back up NAND and then do this >>127998508 skip the first line but do the rest
Question. I made a few mistakes here and there and I reached to the point I need to restore my already installed games back to my 3ds. Does the title folder of those game bonded with its original emunand shenanigans?
If so, can I just copypate the whole title folder back to the memory where it belong and work just fine?
it needs to be ran from command line, if you have no experience in programming then it will probably be hard for you but its easy as shit if you've ever made a command line application
What the fuck do I do on 9.2?
Fucking pastebin had me download a bazillion files and then tells me to go to http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax_auto.php to install menuhax again. Shit just brings me to sliderhax and doesn't do shit. Why is the sliderhax a piece of shit but browserhax 1-2-3? Shouldn't in be the other way around?
There has to be a more reliable way to do this. Screen turns yellow then grey then just kicks me out the browser telling me to save and restart my 3ds.
anything i can do on 9.2 without setting up emunand or fucking with sysnand? i'm waiting for my higher capacity sd card to ship, my current one is too full to set up emunand. was thinking like maybe install a legit cia or something, like fe:a which i haven't played yet.
can I do the MSET exploit on 8.1 with unlinked NANDs?
I don't have a lot of wifi connection in my place, so it's annoying to have to run to my router every time I want to start up my 2DS to get to my games
Do I just have to deal with it?
- Have you already formatted SysNAND?
- Do you care about your save files before you downgraded?
- In bytes, how large are those NAND.bin files?
You can, and it's super easy. Format emunand on new card, extract+inject old EmuNAND into new via EmuNAND Tool, then copy all your files over
Yes. you need to use tinyformat to format sysnand after emunand is set up. you need to do this and not through system settings, or your NNID is fucked and you have to do more extra steps
Sorry, I was talking about GBA games. As far as I know, you can only run them natively if you install on both sysNAND and emuNAND.
I followed the instructions here:
However, I failed to install the patch in emuNAND, while it went smoothly in sysNAND.
I'm on o3DS, NANDs unlinked, separate themes and folders, emuNAND 10.3, Cakes.
Delete history and cookies. Try again, if browser crashes restart system. Took me couple of tries once you get into homebrew install menuhax then run pasta then install FBI.cia. Make sure you change your theme before installing cake/rxtools cuss menuhax fucks itup
Please help this is all I'm stuck on. Should I try injecting the fbi to the sysNAND instead of emu and launch from there?
So I downgraded recently and then decided on buying a bigger sd card. Can anyone help me on where I should go next.
I have looked over the gba website and a bunch of videos to install a cfw and have no idea what I'm doing.
Would anyone be open to help me out over skype I be open to compensate a person who would help with money or vidya on steam.
O3DS or N3DS? Back up your EmuNAND before updating, but:
- O3DS, update directly to 10.3 via system settings. ensure you are in emunand before doing this. if you close out of system settings you will boot back into sysnand
- N3DS: Update via official sysupdater by profi200. Download 9.5 update pack of .cias and install. remove any .cias if you had to when downgrading. I think EUR also needs to remove some .cias but i forgot which. guess you'll have to try updating, let it brick, then remove the files from /updates/, flash your backup back on, then try again
>do all magical things needed for magical adventures
>get 9.1.0J (aka 9.2.0)
>pasta fails to launch anything other than a black screen
Should I update and downgrade again or is pasta just being a spaghetti code
Was trying to do Cakes caus I know the dude who made RXtools retired so I'm trying to futureproof a little.
I have a Gateway 3DS, is there any way I can speed this up more reliably through that? Running the exploit on my girlfriend's 3DS, mine is already all set with Gateway and I've never really had the need for CFW.
did you unlink with tinyformat or formatting sysnand in system settings?
make sure you set up pasta properly, or try cakes (assuming you intended to boot sysnand cfw)
Try to access eshop at least once, install with FBI
Should be fine. Backup just in case you brick emunand
My SD got corrupted(apparently it just died on me after 5 years) and even though I have my old emuNAND.bin I had a few games already installed on the curropted memory. Lucky I could manage to save what was inside of it after a few attempts of troubleshooting but here is my problem
Can I inject my OLD emuNAND.bin to my new microsd and copy my files there? Will the games that were installed work even though it was After my emuNAND.bin ild backup?
Please help me clarify this
>Have you already formatted SysNAND?
Yes I remember doing that during the CFW installation process. I didn't use TinyFormat though which is why my eshop doesn't work now.
>Do you care about your save files before you downgraded?
I'd rather not lose my Pokemon and MH4U saves
>In bytes, how large are those NAND.bin files?
The card is labeled "EMUNAND9SD" so I have no idea why it isn't being recognized.
From the pastebin "Now you'll want to edit your boot.cfg file. Since we're using Cakes instead of rxTools, but we still have Pasta and the homebrew launcher, let's just overwrite the entry for rxTools with one for Cakes. IT should look something like this
title = "CakesFW";
path = "/Cakes.dat";
offset = "0x12000";"
Can someone explain this to me ? I don't understand what does "title = "CakesFW";
path = "/Cakes.dat";
offset = "0x12000";" mean...
Alright so I injected FBI into emunand health and safety app, however my system version is still 9.2.0-20U, isn't it supposed to have RXE at the beginign now? Or do I need to follow this guide?
i do but i always get an error when i try to install stuff
it works when i use pasta but pasta boots into sysnand doesnt it?
do i access it from cakes or from homebrew
>how do I downgrade the firmware on the Vita?
You can't. Forget about it. Be glad it isn't 3.52, so you can still run native homebrew via Rejuvenate.
Well, technically it's possible via hardmodding it, dumping the NAND, corrupting the current firmware partition and flashing it back. Vita will fall back to recovery partition with whatever firmware it had installed before updating to 3.50.
Hey guys, could use a little help here. I'm on CakeFW, n3ds, 9.5 emunand with 9.2 sysnand.
I'm trying to run GBA cias but I'm getting a black screen with an error saying to reboot. I've installed the cias on both sys and emu, no luck. Do i need AGB_FIRM? I thought I didn't, I was reading that cakeFW had working gba unlike rxtools.
Thanks for the help in advance...
Honestly, despite what everyone says, this is the hardest part now. Getting to 9.2 is baby, getting the actual CFW up has a billion different guides that all seem to fail a billion times before anything gets done.
I'm tempted to get pic related for Wii U games once WII U hacks happen (bestbuy because I have a giftcard).
On the other hand I feel like I should wait until the hacks are released to make sure games will run off SD cards. It's only on sale till January 14 though. Best deal I could find on bestbuy for a 128gb microSD or SD, and I already have a spare adapter.
Buy or no?
if i previously installed homebrew channel through
do i need to do it again after downgrading?
holding L doesn't work anymor, and the website doesnt do anything either.
I just got my N3DS to downgrade to 9.2
But I can't seem to get gateway to launch. I tried using the 3.6.2beta GW_3dsx in the Homebrew Launcher, but it just gives me a blank screen.
I tried putting the Launcher.dat into my sd card root and launching from the website with both 3.6.2beta and the latest non-beta version (3.4.1) with no success either. It just says "Gateway 3DS Loading" but does nothing.
please see >>127998508 to get FBI on both NANDs
fucked. you need to do this:
1. Format emunand and relink it to NNID.
2. Restore a backup of your sysnand that still had NNID linked.
Unlinked doesn't have wrapping bug glitch. Would still recommend that
Unlink with TinyFormat, not sysnand format
launch GW.3dsx with Launcher.dat on root via menuhax
After downgrading, browser worked for me still, but I needed to reinstall menuhax, but after that it worked just fine. Haven't tried ironhax yet, but with menuhax it just seemed redundant.
>Follow the guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>Do everything it says
>At last step, use tinyformat
>have to setup 3ds again (date of birth, internet connection, etc.)
Fuck. I have to do everything again, don't I?
I bet you are one of those whiners who are bitching on game awards or comment section why undertale didn't win any awards
Undertale is a nice game but their fandom is cancerous like sao teens or pewliedie fucks geez
I love /feg/
Same problem. Installed AGB_FIRM on sysNAND, but couldn't install it on emuNAND.
Tried installing the GBA cia to both sysNAND and emuNAND. It shows up in emuNAND but freezes, whereas in sysNAND it doesn't show up at all...
bug. for all cfw so far, exiting system settings will boot you back into sysnand. 3d can be fixed by going into sleep mode
>do i access it from cakes or from homebrew
Sorry, what? Can you give me context, I'm really confused by all these different anons.
Yeah that's probably a better idea. I suppose even a 500gb one would be fine. I remember hearing somewhere that Wii U games would only work on SD though, but I doubt it will be like that.
Any recommended brands or brands to avoid for external drives?
i know why it didn't win awards
the story is cheesy, the graphics are shit and one half of the game is boring only being broken up by 2 great fights.
the only thing undertale even remotely deserved to win an award for is its music
i still enjoyed it though because the characters are great and the bullet hell mechanic is pretty interesting.
At this part of the tutoria
"(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.)"
What if you have two folders with gibberish
ironhax is 9.5+ only anyway. just use browserhax
sysnand it's hidden because you're on OFW. run a CFW like pasta to boot CFW sysnand
emunand can't install because either old FBI version or never tried to connect to eshop
Wait, what? What did you even do?
eShop directly after booting into CFW emunand, you don't even have to access it, just let it fail if you're not on 10.3 emunand
Are you absolutely sure? Also are you using tux or julian's sysupdater?
I'm sorry to say but you won't get the games back. You'll have to reinstall the .cia all over again hence no savefile will be there. I don't know if you can just dig the saves and transfer them to their corresponding places but you may have to ask someone else.
^this anon here.
When I try to launch GW from the homebrew launcher, (from both browserhax and ctrbootmanager (which launches through menuhax)) I get black screens (but still lit). I'm sure I put the launcher.dat on the root and the GW folder in the card's 3ds folder.
Do i need to remove the boot manager and try to go back to normal menuhax to do GW?
fucking shit, I read this twice too, it's fucking hard to not be a total fucking idiot on the internet
hold menuhax trigger button, i think it's menuhax on emunand, which in that case you should change the theme
if it's sysnand, hold trigger button, don't change theme or you'll break menuhax and will have to browserhax again to fix it
No problem, glad it worked out
Do you have any existing backup of that /Nintendo 3DS/ folder? What is the filesize, in bytes, of that EmuNAND.bin?
As long you are not one of those faggots who overhype this shit
I like you
If it's completely redundant I won't bother.
Oh and I was wondering how to edit boot.cfg since I ended up using Cakes instead of Rxtools.
Currently I am on the whole coldbooting to EmuNAND step. Oh and I was also wondering how I'm supposed to access Menuhax now.
I changed the date/time to use the crank a kai in yokai watch again
>people are bricking doing this
I had literally no trouble at all and all I did was watch some youtube videos to do it
why do you need access to the homebrew launcher?
is browserhax somehow unavailable? why not use ctrbootmanager to launch the homebrew launcher on sysnand? are we talking sysnand or emunand? not like it matters, seeing as both are piss easy?
do you know if theres an easier way to get back to homebrew when i use cakes to get to emunand?
currently i have to use browserhax again. there must be a faster way
Cakes is the go-to CFW for the n3ds, correct?
How does one update emunand to 9.5?
I followed this guide http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji to installing PastaCFW, but now that I autoboot to PastaFW it loads for a bit and then boots me back to the boot screen after which it loads again and freezes on a red screen.
I changed the autobootfix to 200 and it didn't solve it.
>AT NO CIRCUNSTANCE YOU MUST ACCESS THE "DATA MANAGEMENT" SECTION OF THE "CONSOLE DEFINITIONS" IN THE SYSNAND! By doing so, YOU WILL LOSE EVERY CIA INSTALLED AND IT'S SAVE DATA ALL TOGETHER.
Is it true? I have my eshop and pirated games on emunand, will I lose everything if I open Data management on sysnand?
Why the fuck would you create all those wikis and pastebins and NOT have a proper explanation of what 3DS hack does exactly?
I imported my 3ds from US to play SMT. Will it be possibe efor me to play my NTSC cartridges if I buy european n3ds? What about saves of games I bought in e-shop?
In the RXTools menu there's a "downgrade MSET" option, should I use that or should I use https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/
where it's using a .cia of the 6.0 MSET firmware
I'm guessing the first won't work, because it seems too easy. I'm assuming for the second, I'll have to install FBI on sysNAND aswell
>Once those are all on your SD card and you're running 9.2, go to System Settings>Data Management>Nintendo 3DS>Software. It will warn you that the database files are corrupt, then ask to rebuild them. Do this and then exit the system settings.
For me it says that files inside the SD card are damaged and that I need to format. What do?
menuhax manager has an option which just loads whatever theme you've set up into sysnand
i fail to see the difficulty to this
then don't load rxtools and load the homebrew launcher? you can always temporarily set it up to load hbl instead of rx, can't you?
even better, set up ctrbootmanager to autoboot into rxtools and give you an option to choose between rx or the homebrew launcher if you hold a set button as it initiates?
if they're linked, yes
>double icons on all system apps
dafuq did you do nigga
Keep trying to launch GW from HBL from coldboot, and not through browserhax
Could just be bad RNG. keep trying to make sure.
Looks like you have the right pack, then. I recommend tux build (That's how I downgraded my non-XL n3ds USA!)
Good luck, though.
Do you have a backup of your older /Nintendo 3DS/ folder and your SysNAND before formatting anything? (Or a backup of EmuNAND right after you formatted it the very first time?)
>do you know if theres an easier way to get back to homebrew when i use cakes to get to emunand?
>currently i have to use browserhax again. there must be a faster way
Use browserhax to launch FBI.3dsx to install FBI.cia to SD
Also use that opportunity to install yellows8's hblauncher_loader. Hold Y when you boot it the first time to save the payload to your SD card
if you have an autoboot set up, you must edit the hblauncher payload on root in a programming notepad like notepad++ to change "boot.3dsx" to whatever your hb.3dsx was renamed to. keep it 4 characters like shit/cunt/cock though
Don't bother updating it to 9.5, there's no real reason to do so.
But if you want to, you get the 9.5 N3DS files for your region and update through sysupdater while you're in emunand. Similar to how you did for the downgraded process to reach 9.2 in the first place, only now you're using the update option.
I got rxtools up and running and autobooting with ctrboot, but do I need to unlink the nand to be able to homebrew or something?
Every time I try to boot into home brew channel I just get a red screen.
I am surprised that I could even get rxtools set up.
Also, as long as it shows RX-E 184.108.40.206U on the settings page I can update it to 10.3 and not worry, correct?
As in that just updates the emunand?
Hold my hand please, I am a newbaby about all this.
How does the future look for N3ds cfw? Are we likely to remain stuck on 9.5? If so, that means well be reliant on cryptofixes for all new games going forward? Are there any games that cannot be cryprofixed?
>update through sysupdater while you're in emunand.
Official sysupdater by profi200, mind you. Not the downgrade ones.
Also, lemme upload my CFW/Autoboot pack for N3DS for you. One moment.
>Do you have a backup of your older /Nintendo 3DS/ folder and your SysNAND before formatting anything?
Nand yes, I lost the 3ds folder in the wave of clutter
I just fucking changed the date and it did this, I think it re-linked the nands.
I was thinking that would be a way but I was worried that it would just update sysNAND instead
Yeah, you have to install sysupdater.cia while in emunand and run it while in emunand, then install with the 9.5 pack in /updates/
back up your emunand in case you end up bricking emunand on accident
also here you go, have my N3DS CFW setup: http://pastebin.com/rH5dW0qk
Can't you just set menuhax to boot unless you're holding a button, then rename Cakes.3dsx to boot.3dsx and put it in your root?
I did that and I coldboot into emunand cakes no problem. It's the easiest thing ever.
Only thing is doing it that way means you can't access HBL. I'd be totally fine with that if I could find a way to install an FTP program in .cia form into my emunand.
it should be fine if they're unlinked
think of it like this:
with unlinked nands, sysnand will see its own database files which are not attached to those of the emunand, and build a list of available titles based on it
with linked nands, sysnand will see the database files emunand has, realise there are a bunch of titles which it shouldn't have, and get rid of them
First guy with the problem here. I just installed AGB FIRM on both sys (had to use pasta) and emu. Installed to NAND not SD on both. It mentioned overwriting but otherwise went through fine. About to test GBA after I wait on the code princess cia to install...on million years later...
>at least it's not as difficult as hardmodding.
It's very likely that it had 3.3x before 3.50 anyway.
You're missing out on flawless sound in PS1 games available on 3.18, but you can play newer games.
You can even update to 3.51 if some Vita you want to play requires it.
I messed up getting FBI onto emuNAND so I restored the NAND, installed FBI again and then used "Complete emuNAND setup with emuNAND9 and I think I now have 2 emuNAND partitions on the SD (it's missing 4GB of space) is there a way to fix that?
Yes, and that's pretty much what CTRBootManager does, except:
- It lets you choose a boot file
- It can timeout and autoboot if you want it to
So you can either choose to boot several different CFW or HBL, or not touch anything to boot into the CFW you set it up to launch.
My CFW setup does exactly that here: http://pastebin.com/rH5dW0qk
I made this for N3DS, so I can't guarantee it works for O3DS...
>sysnand it's hidden because you're on OFW. run a CFW like pasta to boot CFW sysnand
Whenever I try to pasta, menuhax loops and sends me back to emuNAND, even if I press the button to go to sysNAND that I setup.
Seriously, is this normal?
I don't get any sort of text. Just a black screen.
I'm on 9.9 with Ironhax
Holy fuck this is so frustrating.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I followed this guide exactly http://pastebin.com/WVszD3Tm
I'm installing the FBI files to emuNAND but when I try to launch rxMODE in emu it just crashes.
What the fuck am I doing wrong?
What's the best way to generate xorpads? the guide i found says to use rxtools to generate them but doesn't say how exactly
motherfuck. reuploaded, here: http://pastebin.com/6g5rf26q
To SysNAND or EmuNAND? Sysnand, make sure you're running a CFW like pasta before installing it
Emunand, enter eshop at least once and try to install again, or try an older .cia of FBI
that sounds wrong, you need to make sure that you're holding down the right trigger button for pasta. go back to menuhaxmanager and re-set it just in case
also maybe try pressing the trigger button after booting it because it might not like the early input, unsure
pasta runs sysnand by default. run it through HBL and hold the trigger button to prevent menuhax from booting
Did you went to system settings > 3ds sofwere or whatever (where you normally check what games or apps you've installed)? It will as something about rebuilding whatever rhe fuck to make the memory card work with installing .cia
Also im not him
How does config.cia work? I installed it with BigBlueMenu and nothing appeared on my home menu. Deleted it, installed again and now I have a black box on my menu, I assume because it installs to NAND? How do I get rid of it?
if they show up in sysnand, yes... but you should have formatted sysnand with tinyformat instead
if you still have the games in sysnand, format emunand again with emunand9, then format sysnand with tinyformat
make sure you have FBI on sysnand (use pasta+browserhax to run+install FBI) before you format emunand, or getting FBI on emunand will be difficult
when I launch rxtools sysnand like the guide tells me to
the H&S app is still normal, even though I overwrote the sysnand H&S with FBI
am I supposed to install an FBI.cia on the NAND instead of SD using the FBI from emuNand or would that change nothing?
O3DS here. So, if I understand it correctly, I'm now on sysNAND 9.2 and I can access emuNAND 9.2 through CFW.
If I update my emuNAND, I can still downoad/install games through FBI, right? I got FBI as an app.
fuck fbi injection. are your nands still linked? get FBI on sysnand by running pastacfw/cakes>using trigger button to cancel homemenuhax>browserhax>HBL>FBI.3dsx>install FBI.cia to SD
it will now be on sysnand unsigned, which you cannot see in OFW so you must run pasta to confirm
then format EmuNAND with EmuNAND9 and then format SysNAND with Tinyformat after
then try preparing CFW like rxtools/cakes
Still doesn't work, same black screen.
So to recap, I'm on CakeFW, sys 9.2 emu 9.5 n3ds, unlinked nands.
AGP_FIRM installed correctly on both (installed to NAND not SD).
GBA cia installed to both.
Still black screen with an error to reboot. Any ideas?
To tell you the truth, I have never ever tried NTR before (the fetish, welllll)
I'll give it a shot right now. You edit boot.cfg in a programmer notepad like Notepad++
O3DS, yes. N3DS, update with profi200's sysupdater manually to 9.5. back up your emunand with emunand tool before doing this.
I'm on 8.1
Just want to be able to launch rxtools through profiles, everything else works
just want to make it easier
I don't want to start dealing with different CFWs now that I've gotten it working
downloaded - 6.X-msetdg-EUR off http://www.3dsiso.com/cia-format-dlc-s-themes-and-updates/268700-mega-cia-bin-mset-4-6-backups-browser-backups-update-packs-regions.html
says it's a bad downgrade pack
guess I'm stuck using browser exploit, not THAT much off a hassle
OK, I think I figured out what I did wrong. I installed only on emuNAND (thinking I was installing in sysNAND).
Also I was confused about the autoboot.
I'll write down what I did maybe it'll help other retards like me to install into sysNAND:
>O3DS, yes. N3DS, update with profi200's sysupdater manually to 9.5. back up your emunand with emunand tool before doing this.
Thanks. Now that its updated how exatcly do I start pirating games?
It's an European rom, if you use rxtools it should run just fine.
Bravely Default XXX is the uncensored romhack of the western release. It fixes the costumes.
I'll upload them both
This is Julian20's latest sysUpdater; run it till it works.
Just keep trying. Don't come to the thread and ask if it's normal that it is always failing. The answer is yes.
>To tell you the truth, I have never ever tried NTR before (the fetish, welllll)
>I'll give it a shot right now. You edit boot.cfg in a programmer notepad like Notepad++
I just checked. Apparently all you do is put ntr.bin on root, install ntr.cia on the preferred NAND, then launch it from the home menu after booting into a CFW
Sounds good, glad you got it figured out
Install cia games with FBI to SD. Find on 3DSISO
What is the use of rxtools?
I have it all set up, but being a newbaby I can't figure out how to do anything.
I am sure there are reasons why it is suggested, I just don't see them and would like to know why I would want to do it.
I have the same issue, when I run a cia (bigbluemenu or hblauncher_loader) through FBI while in emunand i get description_invalid_command.
I tried going to the eshop which ofcourse tells me to update, also tried going to datamanagement > 3ds software
Hey hey, update to 10.3 first. I hear 9.9 has weird downgrading after-effects like not downgrading the browser (which is super important, by the way)
Doubt it. Make a backup with EmuNAND Tool just in case.
Home button if .cia, reboot if .3dsx (I think?)
Do you even have FBI on either of your NANDs? Put your .cia files on root and run FBI, then press L to change destination to SD. Press A to install. You can delete the .cia after it's installed
No, it's for RxTools, Pasta, Cakes, Gateway, and HBL
Once you're in any of those CFWs, launch ntr.cia with ntr.bin on root and you'll stack NTR on top of your CFW
