-RECENT NEWS-
>3DS
-10.4 WHEN– January 11th? Be advised:
--->http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/01/extended_nintendo_network_maintenance_on_the_way
-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.

>Wii U
-Apparently, the Wii U and 3DS use the same fucking keys... LOL
-Hykem is being weird.

>Vita
-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.

rxTools doesn't support n3ds unless you use 3.0 which is shit.

I ran into a problem.

Following the retard guide, I get to launching sysupdater. Every time it loads into it I am getting a black frozen screen. I tried turning off the wifi out of being desperate to try anything, and I get options, but even then it is still frozen. I just can't understand what is going on. I followed the steps and even double checked them. I just don't get it, any ideas?

It's been like this an hour, I feel like giving up.
>>
So I did this a few days ago but didn't follow the pastebin guide, I used an entirely different method, involving booting a Gateway launcher (despite not having the card) and then installing the EmuNAND that way.

Everything is working, except that it boots into the sysnand and I have to use the Nintendo DS Profile option to enter my EmuNAND with RxTools, plus I still need to use the browserhax to run Homebrew Channel.

How do I get something like the guide has, which I press L or whatever and I can choose what to boot into? HBC/Emunand/etc.

Any ideas?
>>
>>128069326
check boot.cfg. does it say it's loading brew.3dsx when you select homebrew launcher?

If so, try downloading this and rename it to "brew.3dsx" instead: https://mega.nz/#!WB0yVDQA!PwkTzA3686cQLs9uCByMVMc0FZic8tPy8xfpu63aaBs

I'm trying to update my emuNAND to 10.3. I unlinked my NANDs and all that, but when I went to update (RX-E was in the corner so I know I was in emuNAND), it failed and restarted my 3DS. My 3DS is still 9.2, but my emuNAND did not update. I have two questions.

1. Did my NANDs unlink?
2. How am I supposed to update my emuNAND?

so I just downgraded my japanese New 3DS. It booted fine but system settings say it's 9.1.0-20J instead of 9.2

and yes, I'm sure I downloaded "9.2.0-20J(Full)_n3DS"

kinda weird but shouldn't be a problem right, can still do the same stuff as 9.2, correct?
>>
>>128070060
Is the wording in the guide confusing or did you just fuck up?

I think multiple people have done this so I should change the wording somehow...

Yeah, the downgrade pack is mislabeled for some reason. There's no functional difference between 9.1 and 9.2.

The wording is slightly confusing, I would probably suggest breaking it into a step inbetween or simply adding a warning here.

you have menuhax autobooting on both sys and emunand so it loops like crazy

remove menuhax from emunand and it'll work

>>128070182
But isn't menuhax just to boot HBC? Or can it or HBC itself boot me straight into the EmuNAND too?

Besides, my sysnand is on 4.2, so I'm not sure how to even launch HBC through it.

>>128070310
Sounds like you didn't unlink your NANDs, which you need to do to be able to autoboot. Also, you can't autoboot rxTools 2.6.
>>
>>128070223
I think it's the wording.
Took your post and I think something like this is more clear:

>Copy everything from the SD card backup back over.
>After you copy everything back over, rename the boot.3dsx (on the sd card) to brew.3dsx and then copy the boot.3dsx (from the zip download in step 1) to the sd card root

nope. You can autoboot/coldboot with linked nands. Just can't use themes when you coldboot with linked nands.

>>128070612
>They're unlinked senpai
Actually, the other anon is right. It's just that I unlinked mine by formatting sysNAND, which removes menuhax.
>>128070729
I'm not sure about it myself, but the guide in the pastebin says you need to unlink them.
>>
>>128070585
The guide I followed told me to downgrade from 9.2 using the Gateway thing, it's now on 4.2.

So I'm forever going to have to boot my EmuNAND through the settings menu before I get to everything? No way to boot it faster from 4.2?
>>
>>128070565
>>128070369

15) Switch the console off
Copy/Paste your SD card backup from your PC to the SD card (select replace all if there are any matches)
16) Rename the "boot.3dsx" on the SD card to "brew.3dsx"
Now place the "boot.3dsx" (from the zip you downloaded in step 1) into the root of your SD card.

Better?

>>128070802
when you installed menuhax you configured it to autboot and had to set a button to press in case you wanted to prevent the autoboot, remember?

so when rxtools loads and you go into a black screen (when it's starting emunand) hold that button (default is L) and it will take you to the home menu of emunand. Then just go to switch to any theme to uninstall menuhax
>>
>>128070816
Do you still have the backup you made from earlier?

Take the boot.3dsx from there
Rename it to brew.3dsx
Put it on your SD card in the root, overwriting the one that is there.

If the size comparison helps at all the PROPER one is a little under 1MB, the wrong one is 5.3~ MB

>>128070902
Perfect.
>>
>>128070856
Huh, I'm on linked nands and the only thing I can't do while coldbooting is use themes. but I'd assume most people would unlink them for the sake of it and incase they fuck up and accidentally update sysnand or some shit. Extra sake of mind I guess.
But yeah, it's definitely possible to coldboot with linked nands.

>>128070814

>>128070068
Can anyone help me? I think my NANDs are still unlinked because when I exit out of emuNAND System Settings, it takes me to the sysNAND menu which looks different. Should I just try updating my emuNAND again? I'm worried that it may have linked my NANDs back together or something. I'm currently in the RX-E System Settings.
>>
>>128070973
I can still use RxTools and FBI on sysnand, so maybe I could try upgrading to 9.2 with FBI?

Or would that fuck up something else on the EmuNAND? AHHHH this is so confusing.

>>128071029

>>128070565
>>128070902
Forgot to ask:

After line 138, my SD card has two things on it:
>EmuNAND9 folder
>boot.3dsx

The next step says to carry everything over, but I am not sure if I am overwriting the files already on the SD card with the files in the backup, since both folders have an emuNAND9 folder and a boot.3dsx file.

I was using Julian's sysUpdater, but I kept getting this error
I switched to TuxSH, and I didn't get the error, btu after I hit Y on sysUpdater, it just stayed there for about 5 minutes.

It's functioning, now, but I don't know if I want to downgrade it after that. Maybe I'll just wait for a better release before I gamble with my N3DS
>>
>>128072976
are you auto-booting? then you likely changed the boot.3dsx file to something else (boot_hb.3dsx or some shit). You need to find the hblauncher payload on your sdcard, open it with any editor, find "boot.3dsx" and change it to whatever you renamed it to.

Is it normal if, sometimes when entering the System Settings from emuNAND, it brings me to the sysNAND settings instead? It seems very bizarre because, as far as I can tell, my NANDs are unlinked still (the gift wrap glitch isn't showing up and exiting the emuNAND settings screen when I actually reach it takes me to the sysNAND home menu), but on occasion, the emuNAND System Settings will take me to the sysNAND settings for some reason.

200GB

You can squeak by with an 8gb, but you'll have to learn how to uninstall games and I haven't seen any anons mention that yet so maybe not much guides and stuff.

You can get sandisk 64 gb for $20, so that's what I went with.

Also there are 8gb no-name, blank suspicious ones on ebay for ~$3.50. I've used them for mp3 and they work fine, just dunno if I'd trust them with a pokemon save etc. Stay away from blank/shitty ebay cards for anything over 8gb, had problems with a 32gb one.

And one anon posted a link to a sorta-legit looking chinese brand 128gb for $30 on amazon.

I'm about in the middle of hacking my O3DS with a 4GB SD card, I know I'll need a bigger one so I ordered a 32GB SD card off Amazon.

Thing is, the 32GB one won't arrive until Monday.
So, can I still continue hacking the 3DS with my 4GB SD card, then once the 32GB one comes in the mail, transfer everything from the 4 to the 32?

Yes, you'll be able to downgrade, that's what's important. Do that and then wait for your card.

Has anyone here converted .cias themselves? Is the end result .cia supposed to be like half the size of the original .3ds?

How much time it takes to downgrade?, I pressed Y and it started to install stuff, went to pee and when coming back I only see a black screen on my o3ds.

Assuming your using the guide for retards:

brew.3dsx is just the hb launchers boot.3dsx file

yes, that's supposed to happen. leaving system settings results in a soft reboot. hold your menuhax trigger when leaving system settings to get back to emunand

You said if you have a homebrew launcher skip this step. I did and went to B. However I read the part I skipped after failing a lot, and saw that the very next line that I skipped told me I needed menuhax installed as well. You need to change it to say only by having both homebrew launcher and menuhax, skip this step.

>>
>>128070690
are you using emunand with rxmode?
>>
>>128073549

do some shit with your db files. some guides have stuff on it. basically you create blank files for title.db and ... whatever the other .db file is and then you go into system settings and it rebuilds them for you

(for you)
>>
>>128073686
up to 128gb with the correct format of FAT32 and 32kb cluster size

If you already have your microSD working in your 3DS or want to keep your contents, you of course skip this step. This only needs to be done if you set up a new microSD.
Find a microSD of desired size. I used a SanDisk 64GB Ultra SDXC but any good brand should do the job.
The card needs to be formatted to FAT32. If using a SDHC (up to 32GB) you can just use Windows' own right-click on drive format tool for that.
If you have a larger SDXC, Windows won't let you format it to FAT32, so use a tool called guiformat
Simply select your drive letter which is your microSD and click Start
Put the card in your N3DS and start it. This creates the \Nintendo 3DS folder.

yeah it's fine
>>
>>128073920
o3ds? 4gb is enough to get emunand going too. just doesn't leave much room for games.
emunand creates a 1gb (o3ds) partition on your sdcard, leaving you with 3 (ish) leftover.
>>
Since nobody appears to have a solution for my problem, can i just format my card to start over our do i need special steps? I got up to the point where you unlink the NANDs.

New to this, tried downgrading to 9.2 on 3DS and was successful, started setting up CFW by following this pastebin: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji

Everything was going great until I installed TinyFormat to the Home screen and ran it, at which point my 3DS reset like it was fresh out of the box, forgetting my language/internet settings/miis/etc. My firmware is still 9.2. Where did I fuck up?

I kind of figured something was up when FBI wasn't installed to the home screen properly but I was too excited to double-check. I can just run all the steps from the beginning again, right?
>>
>>128073920
You can still go through the process. However, 4GB is not very much if you plan to install many games. Just create a disk image of your 4GB and then restore your image on the 32GB because copy+paste will not work

Yeah, they changed it all the way back in 2013 or something when they added proper SDXC support. It barely even mentions it, it just says "yep it's compliant with standards" (which happen to say ExFAT for SDXC cards because leeching money with patents). Only thing that even mentions it is the manual saying that you need the ExFAT driver for SDXC cards.

>>128074916
Yep, the only thing you need to know is that downgrading a 2DS or any of its components (MSET) below 6.0 is a very bad idea. Stick to 9.2 + Menuhax, don't go off into retard Gateway downgrading land.

You can technically use FBI to delete them from the NAND but there's no point, it won't get you any usable free space. EmuNAND is fixed size and you can't install games in there. Just put them in a folder on the other side of the menu or whatever.

To the point when where I should be able to install games after getting Big Blue running.

Every time I try to load Pasta or HomeBrew through BootManager, I just go staight to red screen, rxtools works fine.

From what I understand I need to to, if I want to install games.

Any ideas on how to reroute this out?

Hey, so I'm using this guide for downgrading a Japanese O3DS: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW and it tells me that I should delete a file named '000400102002CA00.cia' from the folder that gets unzipped from the Japanese Mega link or else enjoy a hard brick.

Problem is, the file wasn't listed in the Mega link at all when I downloaded it. Can any other Moon machine downgraders confirm that means it's safe to continue? Or did the guide's writer get the filename hex wrong?

Almost guaranteed to be lower than 9.2. If it is, you can just skip all of the bullshit downgrading. Set up CFW via the browser first, upgrade to 9.2 for Menuhax autoboot later (using a guide that will repeatedly tell you to use devmode/pastamode when you run sysUpdater).

You obviously don't system update via the internet at any point.

I hate to ask for help a third time, but I'm apparently retarded.
I'm following the retard's guide and had been doing since before he updated today. The last thing I did was separate my NAND's.

Homebrew was giving me an error and I saw that I probably renamed the wrong files or something, so I fixed that. Now homebrew launches and I reinstall menuhax.

he still hasn't updated with the important stuff you need to do after unlinking your nands.

Basically -
1. change boot.3dsx BACK to the homebrew one
2. boot to sysnand, use browserhax to get into HBL, set up type 2 menuhax again
3. turn off, change boot.3dsx to ctr manager thing again
4. As soon as the rxtools stuff is done, hold the button that cancels menuhax type 2 (usually L if you follow the guides exactly)
5. Change theme once in emunand to break emunand menuhax
6. Do some shit with your .db files . Basically you go to Nintendo 3ds/random_numbers_n_shit1/randomnumbers2/

and create a folder named "dbs". inside this folder you create two blank files "import.db" and "title.db" . It's super easy on linux, somewhere out there is a dbs.zip file floating around if you're retarded and/or a winbabby.

after that you can place .cia files anywhere on your sd card (i usually make a /cia folder just for convenience), and launch health and safety which is actually FBI in disguise

Yes, we do. TLDR: missing encryption keys that the system uses during boot to decrypt part of the firmware and then intentionally forgets about (it's actually a layer or two worth of keys more than that but that's the non-overly-techspeak version). That was a preventive measure they added on N3DS, it doesn't exist on O3DS.

Pros: Shit PPI makes Genesis & Snes look great with a scanline effect

Better control feel overall - easier to use d-pad for emulator without hand cramping, can hit shoulder buttons comfortably.

Can actually play DMG, GBC, GBA, DS games at 1x scale without them being super tiny

Cons: Shit PPI makes 3ds games look worse

Less pocketable, Heavy

Stupid microSD position (under back cover)


I like the n3ds XL for emulators and for long play sessions for demanding 3ds that otherwise make my hands cramp up.

I have a small o3ds that feels much more portable. I want to get a small US n3ds and add it to my stable as well for super portable emu etc, even if the screen ends up being really small at 1x.

I don't see any point in the o3ds XL and wouldn't get one unless I found a killer deal.

I got my o3DS XL for $100 from a coworker, figuring I could probably just hack it and pirate games. I might sell it and buy a N3DS XL instead.

It is very possible, but requires a donor N3DS' "SecureInfo_A"

You CAN flash it to NAND, but you're better off making another EmuNAND partition on a different SD card, because that's safer.

Error 4 means the firmware file wasn't found on the SD card. You probably either gave a too recent nightly a firmware.bin instead of a firm directory, or you put it in the wrong place. Error 4 is definitely user error regardless.
