DOWNGRADING: http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
-10.4 WHEN– January 11th? Be advised:
-Can no longer download Ironfall 1.0
-Browser/Menuhax both 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?
Safe as it gets for now. Most bricks seem to be people using the wrong firmware. Be sure you understand the process.
-This weekend could be the perfect time to try this. Right now soft bricks can restore by update, but what happens when it's 10.4?
-A libkhax variant of mch2 sysUpdater compiled by julian20 implements the safest settings so far
-Getting the downgrader to even start can require many tries, especially with New 3DS. Opening and closing an FTP app supposedly helps.
-Blank screen can be caused by Menuhax. Try pulling your SD card if you get it. Boot, reinsert, change theme.
-Apparently, the Wii U and 3DS use the same fucking keys... LOL
-Hykem is being weird.
-Cobra Black Fin was announced. http://wololo.net/2015/12/07/cobra-black-fin-an-upcoming-dongle-to-play-ps-vita-isos/
-A Vita update got released, you might not want to update since it fixes the email exploit.
now theres two different guids telling me to do two different things... did i fuck up???
HELP! I bricked my emunand somehow, now when I boot into it it only shows a black screen. Sysnand works fine and is still on 9.2. I can still use menuhax and get into HBL.
What do I do to fix my Emunand? I have a sysnand nand.bin backup, should I use emunandtool to inject that into my SD card even though it's a sysnand backup and not an emunand backup?
I've installed the appropriate FBI on emuNAND through rxTools, but attempting to boot in RX Mode sends me back through CTR, and selecting RX Tools again just gives me a black top/red bottom hang.
I've verified that the boot config is correct, has anyone got any ideas? I followed the guide in >>128029732
Just got homebrew up and running, feeling good. Now to move on the more dangerous stuff. But before all that. . .
Where's the best place to get 3DS games online in cia/3ds/etc files?
I have a 2ds with 6.0.0 firmware and already an emunand and CFW installed. I boot rxtools with my browser. I want to be able to use themehax to boot into rxtools.
Can i just use browserhax and julian's sysupdater to upgrade my firmware to 9.2? Im asking because im not sure if browserhax works on my firmware or if i can even upgrade from 6.0.0 to 9.2.0 with sysupdater.
>tfw I got titty ninjas 2, majora's mask 3d, link between worlds and rhythm heaven working
If you get a 9.4, Then all you have to do is normally update your 3ds to 10.3, and then downgrade to 9.2
>choose EmuNAND Manager Options
>dump emunand (bottom option)
>finish EMUNAND9 set up, format the SD
>choose EmuNAND Manager Options
>go to copy from emunand.bin to emunand
Is anyone else interested? I compiled FBI as .elf and .3dsx, but I can't get a .cia right now. You can do it by using the .elf and makerom. Is anyone willing to create it? Here's a download link: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97698201597525021884
So when you turn your 3DS on you hold L to get into ctrbootmanager right?
Then from there you select rxTools, it then reboots into ctrbootmanager again, and when you select rxTools from there you get black and red screen.
IS that right?
PSA for anyone interested in installing GBA games. This assumes you have unlinked NANDs.
If you have autoboot enabled, you use FBI through pasta by doing the following:
>open homebrew launcher
>use pasta, it reboots automatically
>open homebrew launcher again after reboot
You have to install a patch cia first (one time only):
> Download 3DNUS
> Run 3DNUS on your computer
> If you have an o3ds in the title ID box put 0004013800000202 and in the version box type in 3665, n3ds
users put 0004013820000202 in the title ID box and 4816 in the version box
> Download the patcher (Old3DS_AGB_FIRM_v3665_SignPatcher.rar for o3ds and
New3DS_AGB_FIRM_v4816_SignPatcher.rar for n3ds)
> open the patcher and patch the cia you downloaded with 3DNUS
> Install the patched CIA with FBI on both your sysNAND and emuNAND
> Install CIA with FBI on sysNAND by booting through Pasta. Make sure to install on NAND (press L to
> Install CIA with FBI on emuNAND by booting through CFW. Make sure to install on NAND
You can get the necessary software on gbatemp (where I also got most of the instructions from).
To install actual games:
> Install CIA with FBI on sysNAND by booting through Pasta. Install on SD (default selection).
> Install CIA with FBI on emuNAND by booting through CFW. Install on SD.
These are all checked and working.
There's .3ds files floating around, you need a .cia converter though.

So I stopped playing squid lolis for nothing? Can I update my 5.4 now?
Followed this guide to a T: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
I can boot directly into Cakes which can let me into emunand. However, installing cia files doesn't work on emunand, it gives me a "wrong argument, invalid command" error.
In addition, the Health app doesn't have FBI.cia on it for whatever reason - I installed FBI.cia on sysnand before formatting it but now it's gone. I reinstalled it after formatting and it doesn't show up despite installation successfully completing.
I'm pretty much done, I just don't know why these FBI errors are happening. Does anyone have any suggestions or do I have to run pasta in emunand to make it work (despite the signature thing being ticked on Cakes..)?
So sometimes my Friendlsit works in emunand but othertimes it gives me : an error has occured, plz save and restart system, and notifications the screen freezes but i can still mvoe out of it by pressing on the home button
everything else works fine
3ds folder 1:
3ds folder 2:
I'll ask again:
Can I format a new emunand, and keep my installed games/saves but get a NEW friend code?
I'm not sure just moving the 3ds folder would work, I remember reading they're tied with an ID system of sorts.
I'm following this guide: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW , which has been mostly excellent so far. However I have hit a roadblock shortly after unlinking my NANDs (on line 176).
I unlinked my NANDs exactly as the guide tells me to. However, line 178 says to boot into emunand by holding L while booting, but since unlinking my NANDS this does not bring me into homebrew menu anymore.
Do I need to re-install menuhax? a bit perturbed because everything else was going so smoothly.
I just updated emuNAND to 10.3, and the majora's mask .cia is asking me to update it, is there any harm in letting it update, or would it just not work since I assume it needs to use the eshop to do so.
Yes, I can get into FBI through homebrew. Everything runs fine, it's just that cia files keep failing to install on emunand and FBI.cia never appears after successful installation on sysnand.
That's odd. Try installing menuhax again while in sysNand.
Install it via a .cia file. if you have the legit game (I doubt it) install the update from eShop is fine, otherwise don't do it.
I heard a guy in last thread say he did it and it worked fine (as long as it's the same region game as his account) but I don't trust it.
I'm currently in the process of reinstalling FBI to sysNAND.
Here was my process.
>booted to sysNAND
>went to homebrew and ran PastaCFW
>went back to homebrew with sliderhax
>went to FBI and installed FBI in NAND
>ran PastaCFW again
>icon flashes then disappears
How do I make the actual FBI icon appear? I honestly don't know how I made it work the first time before emunand but I did.
Finally off for the weekend and I see the 3ds scene became active with downgrading and im ready to try it on mine but I have a question
Will I be able to do this with no problems on my 9.5 system? I already have homebrew launcher.
I saw through the guide and went to 3dsiso and noticed the 9.2 FULL has an attachment that says its only for a sysupdater libkhax?
>Didn't update Smash bros cart
>Update in 48 hours
So do I update through the game or what?
If you have a legit cart, updating through eShop is fine, I did it for my Pokemon games and they all work fine.
Also, if you have a cart but also a backup installed via a .cia, they will use the eShop update files so it's all good there too.
I've installed menuhax on my 9.2 o3ds and replaced boot.3dsx with Gateway's with the intent of coldbooting GW emunand.
However it just seems to get frozen. If I use the original bot.3dsx and launch GW from the HBL then it fucks about for a bit, GW logo shows, then it just boots HBL again.
Where did I fuck up?
I know that you do not download updates through the game when in CFW and you should just download and install the appropriate .cia.
What about Spotpass content though(like FE Awakening Maps)?
Is that safe?
Once more in this thread. I'm following this guide http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW and at this step
>20) Go to Advanced > Install FBI > emuNAND > Check TMD. Make note of the Region and the Version.
I can't check it, it says it failed. pic related. Is something missing??
Yes thats safe, ive downloaded the download characters in Inazuma Eleven and it worked, they work pretty much the same as the FE spotpass things, they jsut got "unlocked" over time
Great calamity /hbg/!!
>Finally get everything done
>unlink NANDs with tinyformat
>set ctrbootmanager to boot into pasta
>actually does it.
>boot CFW and boots ctr and pasta again
>goes into pasta again and red screen of ded
What do l do? also, can l download my games from the eShop on Emunand?
A mac was my only computer for a while.
Set up a VM. I had to keep one around for a long time because my GBA EZ_KEK IV flashcart required ROM converter software that only worked with winblows.
Then I bought into some /g/ memes and now I own a bunch of $40 memepads, most of them run linux but some of them included windows keys so I can dual boot. I highly recommend the thinkpad meme, 10/10 would meme again.
So I think I installed Cakes, how do I confirm that I installed it properly? Would the firmware change at all in the system settings or something? I selected Boot CFW and to autoboot but it doesn't look like anything has happened, and I get an error when I try and load the code.bin file on http://dukesrg.no-ip.org/3ds/cakes?code.bin.
>only sd card reader I've ever know to work reliably in my whole fucking life dies out of fucking nowhere

The only way you could express my infinite hate for SD cards is if you wrote "hate" on every SD card and related device that ever failed for no fucking reason.
Please kill me.
Can anyone in this general not be retarded for like 5 seconds
Just five is all i ask
On emunand and .cias won't install.
EShop also wont work on 10.3 emunand
I've been dealing with this shit for a few days, and I don't know how to fix it
So when in emunand my friendlsit and game manuals sometimes dont work and crash, notifications doesnt work at all, screen freezes tho youre sitll able to get out of it by pressing on the home menu, whats happening?
Everything else works fine
Should i wipe my SD card ocmpletely and start from Scratch? if so, how do i get my NNID on the new one?
or restrote my old sysnand to my 3ds and mke an clean emunand of that
What's the best way to brick your 3DS? I was waiting for KTM to release, since it seems to be the best tool for it, but it still hasn't been released, so I was considering buying a Gateway. Do you guys have any suggestion or alternative methods? I don't want to try using a random update file with sysupdater because Pingo said it's not reliable enough.
Okay, I switched the boot.3dsx back to the homebrew launcher one, did browserhax and then set up type 2 menuhax, then finally switched boot.3dsx back to ctr so I'm back where I was before with the RX coldboot.
If either of you are the original author of that pastebin (or if you're reading this now), I would highly recommend you put a note in about doing this. I was following your guide word for word starting from formatted sysnand , formatted SD card and I ran into this bug. I think it's quite likely that others will too.
Really? That's odd then. I swear I've been booting into Pasta every time. I see the icon for a split second but it keeps poofing on me.
Do you think using ctrbootmanager has anything to do with this?
IS IT OK TO DUMP THE EMUNAND VIA EMUNAND9 WHEN I BOOT HOMEBREW ON EMUNAND!?
DOES IT NOT MATTER?
DUMB QUESTION I KNOW, BUT IT SHOULD HAVE A QUICK ANSWER, THANKS.
>How do I make the FBI icon appear.
It shows up automatically in emunand, which is after you boot cakes.
>I don't know how I got it to work...
I think you unlinked your nands.
Or you installed it in sysnand.
Either way it's not a big deal
Shit I think I got semi bricked.
Had everything downloaded and into the correct folders, put in N3ds and hit sys updater. Screen goes black and stays that way (I didn't know whether it was supposed to stay like that so long). Got scarred and L+R+down+B'd.
>an error has occurred.
Shit. Guide says I have to do it over. From where do I have to start over?
sorry if this is a stupid question...
but is there really an update to the 3ds today or it was trolling?,
i finally got to the emunand setting of that guide and now im on the emunand update part, i want to make sure if its safe to do the update.
thanks to whoever wrote this guide
I followed it word for word and it took all morning and a good portion of my afternoon, but it was worth it
SO basically I only have like JUST enough room to fit the mhx cia on my 3ds microsd card. Will it just run from that or is there not enough room?
Restore the EmuNAND you backed up before you did that. If you didn't do that, use whatever your failsafe was to cancel autoboot through menu hax, so you can boot to sysNAND. From there use browserhax to access HBL and delete menuhax. I still think you'd have to restore your emunand though, because what you're describing happened to me and that's what I did.
I love you too anon <3
.cia is an installer. You need 2x the .cia file size to install. OR use socketpunch but it's slow and shit so gl
Well if you get to the cakes menu in homebrew, you know you did it right
>Would the firmware change in system settings No
>I selected boot cfw and to autoboot, but it doesn't look like anything happened, and I get an error when I try to load...
Cakes isn't exactly perfect. Try turning it off and turning it back on.
>Find the paper jam .3ds file on various forums
>Convert said file to .cia with this https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-3ds-simple-cia-converter.384559/
>Open homebrew, open cakes, let it kick you to the home menu
>Open FBI, find the CIA file and install it
The only way to brick your 3ds is if you download incorrect 9.2 file.
IF YOU HAVE A REGULAR 3DS, 3DSXL OR 2DS: You get 9.2 O_3ds
IF YOU HAVE A "NEW" 3DS, N3DSXL:
You get 9.2 N_3ds
If you download the n_3ds file and try to downgrade on a regular 3ds or 2ds, you will fucking brick it. Don't do that.
It's REALLY easy to avoid.
The folders in emunand and sysnand consistently stay the same.
Yeah, I'm guessing I somehow messed up installing Cakes since it isn't appearing in my bootmanager list. I'm not too sure what I could have done wrong though, up until the part where I'm supposed to launch the code.bin in the browser I installed everything correctly. I'm guessing that finishes off the installation but for some reason I've always had a bunch of issues launching any sort of code.bin from dukesrg.*/* url.
>JustPingu trying to get some popularity still
Well, good thing I asked before trying anything funny then. I'm on a 9.2 EU N3DXL. I want to install CFW and pirate games, which guide would be for me?
Anyone have a fix for wrong argument and invalid command errors on FBI? Successfully installed FBI.cia on sysNAND, it appears separate from the Health app. Still getting the aforementioned error on emuNAND though, I have literally no idea what else to do. Is the anon who wrote up: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji around? Followed your guide completely, got stuck at the end with the cia files.
Repostan on /v/ since threads there are dead as fuck:
Are you safe once you've downgraded? I still haven't done anything after the downgrade because I'm waiting for my 64 gb SD card to arrive, and I probably won't have it until monday/tuesday. I have menuhax and ninjhax so I don't need browserhax, if that's the only thing to worry about in case of an eventual firmware update by nintendo.
You update emuNAND through system settings, rigth? Not trough sysUpdater?
>Just make sure you don't actually format the emuNAND again, this will wipe everything.
I plan on dumping my emunand.bin and removing my emunand folder from N3DS
formating the emuNAND and then copy the emunand.bin to emunand
It's so I can log into my NNID
That shouldn't wipe anything
Installing a .cia through socketpunch gives me this:
Source: SOURCE_FSFILE_WRITE (0x1c)
Module: MODULE_NN_AM (0x20)
Level: LEVEL_USAGE (0x1c)
Summary: SUMMARY_INVALID_ARGUMENT (0x7)
Description: DESCRIPTION_MISALIGNED_SIZE (0x3d2)
Press Start to continue
What am I doing wrong?
Can someone explain what's supposed to happen when I click on sys updater in homebrew?
I keep getting a blank screen and I've waited and waited and nothing happens. When I turn it off and go back it tells me an "error has occurred" but I haven't been bricked because I can still plays my games and go back.
Well, now I'm not having any luck getting to the cakes menu. It's just telling me an error has occurred when I try to go to http://dukesrg.no-ip.org/3ds/cakes?Cakes.dat.
So he's been "busy" all this time and has only now just decided he's going to steal the code of someone else's work but add minimal code to it for "security"?
And to top it off, the only thing he's ever released: those zips of cias he created* don't even work with it. Kek.
*zips were compiled and uploaded by someone else.
Okay, so how would I be able to fix this? Luckily I can still access the homebrew launcher, so I would need a tool to format emunand in that case. Tinyformat however doesn't show any option so what would it do by default?
I just turned the power off and back on when it wouldn't load.
under NO CIRCUMSTANCES
do you EVER
Turn the power off once the process is starting.
At the end, it will say "Rebooting in 10 seconds"
Then you can relax.
I'm currently using OOT hax as my primary entrypoint for rxTools, homebrew launcher, emuNAND, etc.
Once I've booted into emuNAND, am I safe to switch cartridges? (On a N3DS, hoping to play my Xenoblade 3D cartridge since there is not a .cia of it on 3DSISO).
Just a heads up - I tried to update my emunand just 5 minutes ago and the bar only got to 60% before it said "an error has occurred, the system will now restart".
My emunand autoboot is still fine at RX-9.2 and nothing is broken but it scared me enough that I'm not going to try it again.
Are you trying to install from homebrew launcher? You need to inject fbi into emuNAND using the health and safety app. See https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-inject-any-app-into-health-safety-o3ds-n3ds-cfw-only.402236/
I doubt i deserve any help but been using https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-more-or-less-catch-all-tutorial.407080/ and at the step
>6. Go to http://dukesrg.no-ip.org/3ds/rop/?LoadCode.dat&rxTools/sys/code.bin on the 3DS browser and hold L to go into the rxTools menu
it start to load the webpage and then kicks me back at home screen with an error has occured message
download the 3.9mb version of rxtools instead of nightly one
Can everyone check their friendslists on emunand while connected to the internet, I heard a few people got the problem but I want to see if anyone found a fix yet
Anyone know where I can find a version of Nightly rxTools which can actually boot using ctrBootManager? 2.6 is completely unable to do so despite the OP being completely out of the loop and still recommending it over everything else.
So I'm pretty much at the point where I should be installing .cias of games, but the BigBlueMenu doesn't appear on my emuNAND anymore. It appears on my sysNAND however, but I'm unable to use it from here. Anyone knows how to make BBM appear on my emuNAND again? For the record I unlinked my NANDs by formatting the emuNAND.
Following the idiots guide. First time entering BootManager, I can click into rxtools, loads up the logo and will usually cycle back to bootmanager and try to enter rxtools again with redscreen on the bottom. Don't think anything has gone awry since I've been slow with this. But apparently so. Any common things people mess up around here?
Does this look right?
Am is everything right for me to downgrade my n3ds. I've followed the guide as close as possible and I'm sure the update files are for n3ds.
Just making sure I'm ready for the long journey that is getting the updater to work.
>He says he will work on sysupdater.
Backing up health & safety info...
to health and saefty
choose source action:
keep or delete, guys?
Regarding unlinking NANDS, at this step
11) If it doesn't say "RX-E" and instead says "Ver." then you are now in sysNAND
12) If you are in sysNAND, remove your SD card and then select Other Settings > Page 4 > Format System Memory
I -don't- turn off the 3ds and then remove it right? Just keep it on, take it out, format system memory, then put it back in?
Yes, I was using the hb launcher...
Thanks for the info, I'll try that
Anyone know how to get the eShop working on emunand though? I'm on emu10.3 and I get this error
So I fucked up I think.
I followed a combination of guides (one from GBA temp and some from here).
I think I have booted rxTools (My system settings say RX-E 9.2.0-20U) but the trouble is that all of my retail games are missing, along with bigbluemenu.
My retail games disappeared from my sysNAND after Complete EmuNAND Setup, so I injected the sysNAND to the EmuNAND at that point.
What should I do?
I asked a couple of days ago but didn't get an answer, I guess because either it's a stupid question or because nobody knows but I'll ask again..
My N3DS running RXTools 9.5 emunand has an issue with the time desyncing, is there a way to fix it?
Kind of a stupid question, but is there a reason why Japanese games won't show up after I installed it via FBI?
I'm using http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
and I'm stuck at step 17
For some reason I can't hold L to launch boot.3ds anymore and browserhax seems to have stopped working
Anyways. I got my Gateway-enabled 9.2 O3DSxl all up to date with RxTools 3.0/CTR/Menuhax, rendering my Gateway largely useless.
I also downgraded my SO's O3DSxl to 9.2. (Honestly, that was surprisingly painless... It was after the latest sysupdater, though...)
I pirated a ton of games on both. Delinked both. Updated both to 10.3 EmuNAND.
I got Fates and MHX working fine with translations, but Monster Hunter still intimidates me mechanics-wise and moonrunes, hunting styles/arts, etc. aren't helping...
But I digress. I answered a bunch of questions in the previous thread, so now I have a few questions of my own:
1) Custom themes. How would I properly install them on my Emunands? Will there be issues with menuhax (on sysnand) or such? Am I just paranoid?
2) Savefiles. I have 'filer and I'm aware of svdt. I want to take my old Smash cart savefile and make it work with my .cia. What's the proper process for that? Doesn't Smash have some weird anti-savefile-tampering?
3) eShop. I delinked by wiping sysnand, so my emunands I believe are still with my NNID. Would using eShop mess up my .cia files? I only care for updates/DLC; Is it not safe to update games outside of .cia downloads?
4) I'm guessing this is related to 3 - I assume I should avoid using the system settings in EmuNAND as much as possible, correct? Especially data management?
5) In terms of the scene... besides some N3DS growing pains and 10.4, is the 3DS hack situation getting near endgame in potential?
Also, the guides were all oddly confusing; none of them actually properly explained everything. It's no wonder the topic is flooded with (obvious) questions... (like mine????)
I thank the guy who made the non-kickass set of files, though; that was extremely convenient and all it needed was a fixed up README.
In return, have a meme menuhax boot image I made; don't have 3D on when you boot up.
Getting FBI (or other .cia installers) to work properly.
I'd wait it out until more stuff is confirmed.
Yes, I'm playing new stuff on 9.2.
Just don't update the games if a popup stating there's an update or fuck with the home themes.
Hey guys I'm in the process of fixing my bricked emunand, I went into emunand9, dumped my emunand to a bin, then finalized my SD. Someone said I should format my sd then clone my emunand dump. Which NAND should I format my SD in, my SYSNAND or my EMUNAND?
svdt can backup/restors save files for games (both cart and .cia)
Did you rename the files correctly? DId you copy over the correct boot.3dsx?
don't update to 10.3, 9.5 will work fine
follow this http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
1. you can either install them via .cia or use CHMM2, but if you enter the eshop the .cia versions will be erased.
2. insert cart, then open savedatafiler, then extract, then get the cia version of smash and inject save
3. not if your nands are unlinked. it is safe to update games outside of .cia downloads UNLESS they're undubs. then they wont work.
4. you can use it, but you'll be kick out to sysnand once you exit. if your nands are unlinked, nothing will happen to your cia files.
5. it's almost endgame.
>1) Custom themes. How would I properly install them on my Emunands? Will there be issues with menuhax (on sysnand) or such? Am I just paranoid?
Setup homebrew on your emunand (use browserhax, install ironfall and use ironhax, etc.) or install the CHMM2 cia.
The menuhax on sysnand isn't affected by emunand stuff.
I was trying to get the computer program, for transferring SD cards. I got it from https://gbatemp.net/threads/emunand-tool-release-and-support-thread.359239/ and it just keeps getting deleted immediately because it has a virus
Had to sit over 6+ hours of installing shit
Can anyone find the download link? I think I've gone retarded bacause I can't find it.
I did, it's all shit anyway
I want to start over but i need some confirmation first
so far i
>dumped sys.nand and kept it somewhere safe
>restored all of my previous files minus the dumped sys.nand
can i simply format the sd card using panasonic sd formatter and be able to start again all over?
sd card name changed to emunand after i formatted it so not sure what to do
Does the "Updates" folder go in the "3DS" folder or outside of it?
sys said it couldn't find it and the folder/files are in there.
MenuHax and BrowserHax will definitely be patched. Whether it is a temporary or permanent fix depends on how competent Nintendo is.
The downgrader will become broken for sure.
If they have some sense they'll add an extra layer of security keys too which might break emunand.
If I get booted to the main menu after trying to run browserhax can I try and run it again or should I shut the 3DS off like the system tells me to? Getting back into emunand every time is annoying.
Find their update files online (as .cia files) and install them
If you have the legit cart, just use eShop and the update data will be used by the .cia installed game
There was a .bat that downlaoded updates off of nitendos servers but I lost the link, hopefully someone has it.
I fucked up with ctrbootmanager and I want to start from the very start. Will formatting my sd card give me a clean slate or will I have to do some techy stuff to recover the 2gb data emuNAND is taking up?
goes in the root folder
if you go into system settings it will say if its emu or sysnand but exitting out of settings will send you back to sysnand. The person you called a retard had a good idea for you to mimic, you retard
>Did you rename the files correctly? DId you copy over the correct boot.3dsx?
Even tried using the original file but that didn't work either
To clarify: browserhax will even freeze my browser, or flash in yellow and gray colors and then freeze it.
So I think I fucked up big time. I followed this:
> launch Pasta again, and this time stay on the home menu and just launch TinyFormat. This method is better than just removing your SD card and formatting sysNAND. It won't require you to have your SD card out, and it'll help avoid your NNID become unlinked on Nintendo's servers. All your data will still be safe on your emuNAND after you do so.
Whenever I boot up my N3DS, it asks to set it up like it's my first time booting it up. Should I not be setting it up or something?
Downgraded to 9.2.0 and everything is fine when I boot without the SD card.
But whenever I turn it on with the SD card inside I just get a black screen.
What should I do now?
Since it's safe to stay on 9.2, should I wait for a safer and more efficient way to pirate?
Okay, I have now completed my piracy journey on my o3ds.
Surprisingly, it was much more difficult than my n3ds one, where I just followed https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/ word for word and everything worked on the first time.
I had two failed attempts: one following http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji , did everything word for word and FBI did not appear in emunand. Second failed attempt was following a slightly modified version of the n3ds guide, but using cakes and the o3ds firmware. Again, everything went well but no FBI on emunand. I tried to salvage this one by doing launching PastaCFW from emunand but just got immediate crashes. Gave up and decided to do it a third time.
3rd time: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW was very good, but it was not quite wholly sufficient as I had to go off-script at a few places. At line 178, I had to do the things I discussed here >>128032965 in order to get my menuhax back, as the stated instructions (hold L to boot homebrew...) no longer worked after reformatting sysnand exactly as the guide specified.
Additionally, after I did the above boot.3dsx juggling, I found that I had triggered a boot loop where my emunand was still triggering menuhax and sending me back to ctrbootmanager. I solved this by holding L *just* after RXtools sent me to emunand, and changed the theme in emunand which broke menuhax.
A final note/reminder about FBI would be nice too: "You can now use FBI to install .cia files on your emunand. Remember, we have injected FBI into the Health and Safety app, so just select Health and Safety on the menu screen to launch FBI"
T.Hanks, mister pastebin man. The guide is almost perfect.
Did you have menuhax enabled before?
If so, you really should read the thread and OP before posting.

JustPingo is the reason why you shouldn't trust a frenchie.
So .cia themes will be wiped by eShop, but not .cia installed DLC or updates? I can, say, use eShop to download updates, and then pirate the DLC with .cia files, and not have to worry about stuff getting deleted?
Yes. With CFW like rxtools, you can sandbox a second 'firmware' called Emunand on your 3DS; running rxtools in that firmware, you can download .cia files of games and install them with homebrew such as FBI straight to your emunand's 3DS menu as if it was an eShop game.
Other than the long install times, it works extremely well.
I'm not 100% on this, but if you're getting a colored screen after loading the website, SOMETHING is working.
But browserhax is very unreliable. Wipe history, wipe cache, delete browser savedata, get a four leaf clover, and practice your prayers. It can take many tries...
Make sure you have the proper files on your SD card. Maybe browserhax can't find the file?
Used this tutorial and I got to the part where I unlinked my sysNAND and emuNAND and reformatted my sysNAND so that the two weren't linked. Now I can't hold L to access menuhax and it just takes me to sysNAND 9.2 instead of my emuNAND I just spent an hour creating.
If I ever enter Data Management on my CFW with pirate shit installed, will they break? My sdcard is just 16GB and I should need to uninstall shit later.
So I just formatted my sysNAND to unlike my emuNAND as per http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW, but now I can't boot back into the boot manager when the SD is inserted, it goes straight to sysNAND.
Do I need to re-menuhax?
What folder on the SD card has the games I bought on the eShop? I want to make room for other games but I can't delete them directly from the 3DS cause they aren't on the home screen. On an O3DS btw
reformat the SD and start again. I just finished my journey (took me 3 tries) on my o3ds.
but note the corrections I have made in this post >>128037819
It took me about 3 hours, it might take you longer. The important part is that you're on 9.2 now so there's no rush anymore. Additionally I would recommend against using the Nintendo System Updater, even if you think you're sure you're on emunand. If you skip that part then basically every fuckup you do is 100% reversible by just reformatting your SD
you have to switch the boot.3dsx back to HBL, menuhax it, and then put boot.3dsx back to the CTLbootmanager at the end. Also note the other corrections I have made.
I've googled fucking everywhere for help with getting rid of the "wrong argument", "invalid command" error messages. Guess what? Fucking no one has any relevant information on how to fix it for emuNAND outside of this place.
some anon posted a solution to it but now I've run into another wall because ctrbootmanager is a fucking stupid tool.
you can uninstall using FBI/BBM/whatever. but entering data management won't break your pirated stuff
yes, when you formatted sysnand, menuhax got wiped. reinstall menuhax.
legit games are installed in your profile under /Nintendo 3DS/
64 works fo shizzle. 128 likely will as well.
I had to format my SD and install everything from scratch just now. 2 questions:
1. Is there any way for me recover my MH4U save (digital copy) from the backup I have sitting on my computer
2.Can I transfer/inject my MHX save game somehow if I only have the extdata folder backed up (that's apparently where the savegame is located)?
So I've seen this on the guide I was using: "You should not try to update your emuNAND as 10.3.0 seems to be incompatible with emuNAND at the moment." Is this true? I've seen people updating their emunand to the latest version. I'm mainly worried in case the new version comes out on monday and then I'm shit out of luck
Thanks buds. They're unlinked and my CFW is fully updated with NNID working and everything.
How did you even get cias to install from that guide? Mine keeps going an invalid command or whatever error and FBI completely vanished from the system menu. I can't even access browserhax from emuNAND anymore.
I'm tempted to scrub everything clean and start from the FBI process all over again.
Trying to downgrade my N3DS. I always get either a black screen when going into sysupdater, or getting to the choices screen and the following message after pressing Y:
>Getting CIA file informations...
>main.cpp:148: Result: 0xD900182F
>Failed to get CIA info!
Should I keep trying or is this an unusual error message and I should do something else?
So I followed this, but it's vague as fuck. Doesn't even tell you what to do if you get an error.
Does anyone have a better guide? I got to the part when you use FBI to install the .cia to the sysnand, then what?
For anons in the thread having invalid signature problems, I deleted CakesFW and reinstalled it and disabled signature checks. I also redownloaded my cias in case something went wrong with the download. Everything works fine now.
Anon can you help me out? Here is the story.
>Hey guys I'm in the process of fixing my bricked emunand, I went into emunand9, dumped my emunand to a bin, then finalized my SD. Someone said I should format my sd then clone my emunand dump. Which NAND should I format my SD in, my SYSNAND or my EMUNAND?
The unsafe part was the downgrade to 9.2, not the pirating. Once you have emuNAND and run everything from there, pretty much everything is safe or at least revertible without issue.
More efficient pirating? I guess .cia installs could happen faster and I guess actual .cia sources could be... less obnoxious and they need development, but it's just a matter of installing a .cia to your EmuNAND otherwise, so why wait?
Wiping sysNAND wipes Menuhax. You need to load up the select theme menu on the new sysnand, back out, and then you just need to reinstall menuhax the same way you did previously (scan qr code, etc).
Menuhax is broken after a downgrade.
Remove SD card, change your theme (this uninstalls menuhax) . Reinsert SD. It should work now, but you'll have to reinstall menuhax (change back to default theme and see above).
you'd be surprise
someone was literally complain about this earlier. how they download .3ds files from 3dsiso and literally ignored the cia download section a few pegs below it
I feel like some people in these threads have ADD or some shit
>9.9 on N3DS
>hear that downgrading isn't stable on N3DS and I might need several attempts to get it done
>want to wait but nintendo wants to fix this shit on Jan 11/12

>sysUpdater launches properly
Some of you made it sound like I should be happy when I succeed on my 15th try or some shit like that.
Guess now it's time for CFW and this whole sysNAND/emuNAND/NNID fuckery
How can I wipe everything off my SD card and restart formatting emuNAND from a different point? I can't progress any more and nothing seems to be working so I want to try again.
I have an image of my SD card at the state from when I installed FBI.cia, can I just write that back to my sd card or do I have to do something to the partitioning to completely wipe it?
Tux's build worked for me on n3ds.
First 19 times I got stuck at the numbers stuff, 20th time was the first time I got through to red text and it worked fine after that. Froze at the end ("rebooting in 10.."), hard powered off, removed SD, powered on to check -> scary 30 second boot time -> first boot menu. Turned it off, deleted "extdata" off sd card, put SD card back in.
After that use: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-rxtools-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-manager.405589/
takes like 3 hrs but that guide worked on the first go for me.
Could someone help me out?
I've been stuck with the downgrade. Apparently, because of managing the .cia files with Mac, which apparently adds hidden useless data for kicks and giggles.
I've tried to erase them but sysupdater keeps telling me about problems with the files. So I''m thinking of formatting the SD card and re-do the whole task on Windows.
Could that be a problem? Just making sure in case I fuck something up.
if you have a copy of your original sysnand (after downgrading, before wiping), then you should be able to just clone that nand.bin into emunand.
if your sysnand works, but emunand doesn't, then use emunand9 to clone sysnand into emunand. your nands are linked, but it should at least be bootable and you can carry on from there.
I have sort of a stupid question but its bugging me a lot so I'll ask anyway. If im using menuhax without the autoboot into emunand will i have troubles after the 11 when nintendo patches things up?
Anyone able to upload there files for O3DS on 9.2.0-20 for me to steal?
It works for both. On N3DS it works for every game but for O3DS it doesnt work for Smash 4, MHX and MH4U
1.Install the BootNTR.cia in Emunand, copy the ntr.bin into the root of the sd card.
2.Execute the BootNTR application in home menu then it will boots NTR CFW.
X+Y loads up the NTR screen
Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3. breddy gud button mashing musou
alright. i have cakes installed and fbi doesnt work in emunand with cakes. but i dont have any other cia installers in emunand
how am i supposed to install stuff? is there a way to get a cia installer into emunand from sysnand? my emuNAND is at 10.3 and unlinked if that helps at all
>IT'S EVERYBODY ELSE'S FAULT I DIDN'T DELIVER NOT MINE FUCK YOU GUYS YOUR ALL RETARDED!
Anybody know where I can find a .cia for
Style Boutique 2 Fashion Forward?
I googled it and all I can find are a couple of really fishy-looking links. There's nothing on 3dsiso I can find either.
for anyone that cant run cia's on emunand through fbi. I had this problem aswell on n3dsxl.
THe problem was that i did not have fbi installed on emunand (nor sysnand (even though i did install)).
you need to be able to run fbi from the homescreen, NOT homebrew.
My solution was to format emunand on sd, do the setup again so it's linked with sysnand.
Then on sysnand (which probably has nothing installed) boot into homebrew > pasta > fbi > install fbi.cia
reboot, still nothing on homescreen > homebrew > pasta > homescreen and then it was finall installed
This is happening. Why is it happening? Everything else worked fine up to this point. Please help. I cannot fix.
I even tried using HBL through emuNAND to install .cia files and it won't do it. What the fuck.
Same issue here, actually. I decided to restart from a different point.
Can I use a partitioning tool to scrub the emuNAND partition and then an image tool to get the data back at a certain point?
I doubt the 3DS is strong enough to do that
>It'd be pretty cool to play Symphony of the Night on the go.
You could get a PSP/Vita since you can pirate PSP games on both.
For some reason I see the PSP price range from 30-80€ while you can get a used Vita for 60-90€
It's not normal.
I'm not 100% sure on the process, but I'll give my opinion.
You ran from menuhax? Do you mean from CTRBootManager, or from Homebrew Launcher? You want to launch from Homebrew Launcher.
... if it's still loading the CIA information, it likely didn't actually do anything yet. You might be safe to try it again. Maybe redownload the .cia files (o3ds and full) and make sure they're in /update.
i did lose my nintendo id this way cause im too lazy to restore the nand backup, i dont know if that would work either, didnt get an answer to that question. but this should work for everyone (i just tried shit myself, no1 knew the answer to this)
get an injection point of some sort. use tubehax dns to not auto-update to 10.4 when ninty rolls it out.
honestly don't know. i put it in primay and secondary on both nands just to be safe
you have your nand.bin still? just use emunand9 to flash it to sysnand
>download freeshit on 3dsiso via bugmenot
>some nigger changes the password on the Sharing2 account
So if I were to buy one of the ninty refurbished 2ds and it takes about a week to get here will I have any problems? What's This about nintendo fixing things in a few days, it's Got me worried
you have to use it from the home menu in emunand, I think it doesnt works from home brew
>Can I use a partitioning tool to scrub the emuNAND partition and then an image tool to get the data back at a certain point
that's how I transfered to my 32 gb sd from an 8 gb card so I imagine you can.
So I just unlinked my emuNAND by http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW's instructions and got into the bootloader through browserhax, but I get an error after "writing body-data" when I attempt to install menuhax again. The theme data exists.
Thanks I got it. Is the only way to get rxTools running is through the Internet browser? There is a rxtools.3dsx and rxtools.smdh inside the ninjhax folder but I don't have cubic ninja.
how did you even get it on the home menu in emunand
oh fuck. i think i was supposed to install it while the NANDs were still linked.
fuck. anybody know how to link NAND and emuNAND?
>follow this guide word for word
>on the downgrade step
>get pic related
Any ideas why this is happening? I downloaded and used the stuff in the guide.
Ah, there we go.
Thanks for the help, man.
Have a sweater for your troubles.
If rxTools is working, is pastacfw needed at all? in ctrlbootmanager I don't see pasta as an option like in this screenshot, just hbl and rxtools. Should I be concerned about it? I have the pasta folder in my 3ds folder btw
Not 100%, but some ideas.
You checked TMD and got the right version number, correct? You copied the relevant files from rxtool's tools folder to the root of the SD card, correct? Only the exact files and no folders?
Make sure you ran the firmware.bin script. It's usually a python script or a .bat file in a lot of kits. I think you already did that if you can get into EmuNAND fine, though.
There's a way to inject it via Pasta, but I'm unfamiliar with the details.
maybe? you need menuhax in your sysnand to get to CFW in the first place. But then you DON'T want it on your emunand (or at least not set to autoboot)
Like I said, easiest way is just to hit whatever button cancels menuhax for you (most guides use L), and change the theme once from emunand. this breaks menuhax on emunand but not sysnand so you're all set
>A windows SD format removes all content on the SD card which will set it back to a factory default SD card
well apparently the default windows sd format refuses to set back the sd to the factory default
let me try again and see if something changes
It sure does. It only sends out a mii in the current nand you're using though. So if you're in emunand it won't send out both your emunand mii and sysnand mii, just your emunand one.
