DOWNGRADING: http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
-10.4 WHEN– January 11th? Be advised:
-Can no longer download Ironfall 1.0
-Smealum has begun work on hax 3.0
-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.
I have EUR N3DS on 10.0.0-27E with both menuhax and ironhax (I also have physical copy of OoT, so I guess that would be another entry point). Should I downgrade now or just wait? I heard the process isn't entirely safe / perfected yet for N3DS, and I don't really need the ability to play backups right away (still have several games that I bought and haven't finished yet).
So, should I go with the downgrade now or just wait a bit longer?
Why do people use rxTools? Cakes was way easier to install, and plus the tutorial was easier to follow.
I also have the same problem as this person.
I'm using Cakes emuNAND 10.3, i've tried updating through CIA, Eshop, and home menu. Is there really anything else? I wouldn't mind getting a Smash CIA and seeing if that works, but it'd be a pain in the ass since I have a smaller SD card.
>Cakes was way easier to install, and plus the tutorial was easier to follow.
No it isnt
stop. both are literally put files on a sd card and go to a website in the browser. plus rxtools just blantantly has more features. cakes doesnt even have region free
how do i autoboot into emunand with rxtools?
USA miku cia: http://www.jheberg.net/captcha/project-mirai-dx-usa/
Use FREE it seems to be the best downloader
as somebody who released a relatively popular free indie game a while back, he's right
even though it's free people will expect you to provide tech support and if you don't give them what they want they'll abuse the shit out of you
my interest in free software died pretty quickly
So I've sucefully downgrade, installed Emunand Cakes and all, but what should I do for the cfw Emuand launching directly when I boot my 3DS ? Everytime I must pass by browserhax and it boring me, I know there's already the pastebin but it doesn't work
Can anyone hook me up with that new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game .cia, Steamworld Heist, and a good Rhythm Heaven game?
I'm new to the series for Rhythm heaven, so whatever is supposed to be good. Any and all help is appreciated, these roms sites are really hard to navigate. Thanks again!
Okey, waited for an hour and nothing happened. I turned it off and on and nothing happened (black screen but I could turn it off normaly (the turn off screen did appear) so I guess it was soft bricked.
Rebooting + L+R+A+Up worked and it is updating to the newest official firmware now.
Gonna try again later. Thank for the help so far!
Following this guide (http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW), I am on step 19 of the emunand stage.
I don't have any of my retail games on emunand or sysnand. How can I get them back on either? And should I unlink my nands before I attempt to get them back?
you mean virtual console? mine went mia, I've accepted my fate for fiddling with technology I don't understand
I have a n3ds already hacked and with some.cias, but only us ones. Can i put .cias from any region or only after i install some region free program (like that one on the HB starter kit)?
That would be all fine and dandy if he didnt shit on sysupdater and tell everyone that his program would be the best solution.
He was an arrogant twat and got burned for it. Hope he learns something from this.
Asking here again, do I need to take some extra steps in order to play online/local? I'm on Rxtools 10.3 on O3DS, and I tried to have my friend join me in Smash (I'm updated to the latest version, 1.1.3 and I installed the dlc) only for it to say our versions are different. I checked the homescreen on his cart and it seems it's updated to the latest version as well.
I have a EUR 3DS XL on 7.4, should I update to the latest firmware then downgrade to 9.2 or should I find the cooking mama game?
Also I want to start playing Mon Hun and I want to try out X, but it's not even close to being released in europe.
Does anybody have a link to that english version that was posted around a week ago?
Ok. So I guess I will need to redownload them via the eshop. Should I delink my nands before updating so I can access the eshop? (which I should do via emunand, correct?)
>AC HHD has an infinite loop on o3ds rxTools 10.3
Does anyone have that update spoofer?
literally just google search it
it's usually the first link
>google search pokemon super mystery dungeon 3ds cia
>the first link is a link to an especially good download site
you legitimately have to be either fucking retarded or just pathetically lazy to be unable to do this by yourself
>tfw wish my o3ds was n3ds for comfy xenoblade
you n3ds bros better take advantage and play it.
I'm pretty sure you just have to back up your saved data, format either emu or sysnand (can't remember which) and then sign in with your nintendo id
you can then download games from eshop again and use your backed up saves
you don't HAVE to unlink them
but you get a lot of annoying issues if you don't, i had that issue where you have to re-unwrap every single injected game in emu everytime i booted
the 10.4 update is most definitely patching exploits through the browser. Nintendo announced this maintenance not too long after this shit was getting nuts.
So, you're best off downgrading NOW. Unless you meet some of the other requirements for downgrade.
yeah i think so, since you're not supposed to update sysnand
i'd suggest formatting sys and updating emu to access eshop since your emunand should still be the same as your original sysnand id iirc
then just re download
My SD card reader in my computer broke and an adapter won't be coming for a few more days. How can I send something over the network to fbi?
My friend keeps getting softbricking his O3ds after downgrading, and I don't know how to help him.
He says that he's put all the files in the right place in the SD card, but TuxSH isn't showing any steps, and Julian causes a softbrick too after rebooting the console.
What do you think?
Downgrade successful on second try!
all factory new O3DS/O3DSXL/2DS(minus the newer bundles) are guaranteed to be 9.2 or below with a browser on them
you can never know the exact firmware you'll just know without a doubt that it will be an exploitable console.
How am I supposed to use svdt?
I want to restore the archived saves on my system that are undetected, but I can't manage to use it. When I launch svdt in the homebrew channel, it shows a red screen and frezzes. I tried the same on my o3ds but to no avail.
What am I doing wrong? Will I ever get my saves back?
yeah. new updates are usually fine for rxtools(plus theres no risk in updating emunand either since you can just reinject a back up emunand.bin) but just wait for others to test it out and confirm its safe to update emunand
>convert .3ds to .cia
Does this look like a .3ds to you?
ayyy i've got about 25 games in my cia folder that are just waiting to be fbi'd
at this point i'm just downloading any game that looks even half decent, gotta fill up that screen with games man
>tfw your finals are in 2 days and you're working on dank haxx
download patch here (NTR plugin only)
prepatched mhx+v9 (slow as shit however)
prepatched mhx+v8 (older version, this download is much faster than the other one)
Decrypt your clean JP MHX CIA with this tutorial: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-decrypt-extract-and-rebuild-a-cia.388677/
Inside the romfs folder of your decrypted CIA, merge the "arc" folder with the folder of the same name inside the mhx folder of your patch download.
Rebuild your CIA, then install it as per usual. You may have to delete your old game if you had v8.
Everything works except for folder renaming in my N3DS. When I select it it crashes the console. That's what I get for region-changing I guess.
Huh nevermind, I guess the guy must have updated the third link since it now states it's v9.
Just download the third link, it's actually prepatched mhx with v9 and not as slow as the second one.
I'm following the guide for retard. I managed to launch sysupdater but it froze when trying to downgrade. Now each time I try to launch it I get a black screen.
Is it a case of "just keep trying till it works" or do I have to do something specific to fix it?
Before downgrading and I archived a bunch of saves from downloaded games (VLR, New Leaf, PW:AA, I don't remember the rest) and after creating emuNAND and unlinking nands they weren't recognized anymore. I'm trying to see if I can get them back with svdt.
This particular skin can be found on gamercat's goodies shop
no, place an "imagedisplay.png" in the same folder, then use the "read from SD" option.
yes, I just played some dank battle network, bass deluxe is no bueno
ah, you mean svdt doesn't show any of the games on launch? are you using yellows8's hblauncher_loader?
fug, official merch is usually expensive
Download this file, it's from the official svdt github
You have to put it alongside the svdt.3dsx and svdt.smdh files.
>get taiko no tatsujin they said
>it's just fun game no nip they said
>this is the first screen
h-help? If you guys can guide me into the main menu (which it should be simple from there, I hope) I'll upload the .cia
>there are people in this very thread that paid for the gateway card
>there are people here that run cakes over rxtools
Question for people who have a N3DS, how many attempts did it take for sysUpdater to work for you?
If I had to guess, I've done it about 25 times now, restarting and holding L and all that shit.
No luck, still.
it's the firmware for running GBA games, patched for signature checks, install it to destination: NAND in FBI (or use bbm)
GW is actually the best for me still, having a j n3DS is a pain (have to use NTR with rxtools and set that shit up each time for half my games)
Having boot manager to pick from which I want is real nice
>choose either the left or the right save
f-fuck I'm an idiot
uploading the .cia to mega now
yeah you kinda are
instead of waiting for people to spoonfeed you you should actually try things a little at least
leftmost option is simple playing
the option to the right of it would be the story mode
the rightmost option is local play i believe
the sideways option on the bottom is game settings
check those menus out
FOR US VERSION OF THE GAME
FOR EU VERSION
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT DLC LEGITIMATELY OR GOT MEWTWO FOR FREE, THESE WONT WORK. THE ONLY WAY AROUND THIS IS TO INSTALL ANOTHER REGION VERSION OF SMASH 4 AND INSTALL THE DLC FOR THAT REGION. SO IF YOU HAVE THE US VERSION OF SMASH 4 AND BOUGHT DLC SWITCH TO A EUR VERSION OF SMASH 4 AND DOWNLOAD THE EUR DLC PACK AND VICE VERSA
I'm running rxTools 3.0, autobooting into emuNAND. If I want to use a R4i, do I have to do anything special? Or do I just pop the cartridge in and it boots into R4i, or do I boot into emuNAND and start it up through the cartridge icon?
or just delete the mewtwodlc in bigbluemenu...
Thanks, I would have tested it out but it seemed like something I'd have to dig around in menus to change if I messed up.
If you downgrade and get a black screen remove the SD card, change the theme then reinstall menuhax.
Just be ridiculously cautious and double check the MD5, SHA1 and region of the firmware you downloaded yourself. I used the safety net of the auto recovery when I got the black screen because I thought I bricked it.
Different guides are saying different things about Unlinking NANDs. Is there a preferred way to do it? Should I:
1) Inject FBI onto my sysnand and then use Tinyformat?
2) Remove the SD card and format system memory is sysnand?
Great guide, however the owner should add that when first accessing rxTools it installs some stuff, then you need to reboot and then enter with L pressed (sometimes you'll get a redscreen and need to eject SD -> put it back in before rebooting)
sure, how bad do you want it?
I did 2. The only thing that happened was that my NNID got disconnected from sysNAND, and my eShop games disappeared as well. Both my NNID and eShop games were still on emuNAND though, which I have now updated to 10.3, so it's not really a problem.
>Spend all week trying to get this shit working
>Get all the way up to where I should be able to install rxTools
>Keep running into issues/getting different info from every other guide
>Fuck it, update to 10.3 and format SD, try again
>Can't get sysUpdater to downgrade
Worked the first time when I first tried doing this, even with the shit that supposedly increases your chance it just crashes. Guess I should've tried to just figure out what was wrong the first time.
Okay, so I'm using the retard guide, and watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwkJaraMPSY
This video says I need to rename my update folder from .rar to .cia? Is that true?
The retard guide never said anything about that. I'm quite retarded, but this guide left out some vital information.
>tfw still haven't updated my emunand to 10.3 yet
>wont have access to my 3ds until after tomorrow
Thanks, I replace the previous .xml and it works.
So now in my sd card, there is a folder named "backup" which contains three digit numbered folders. (in hexadecimal)
These folders contain .sav files that are obviously my archived saves. What do I do now?
only if you post a timestamped pic with shoe on head
There's a low chance of 10.4 using new encryption. If it ever did, you can just download 10.3 update files with 3DNUS and use sysupdater on emunand.
Yeah, that's right.
I'm tempted but there's no shoes nearby
I'm sure a lad will post a pic tho. Been looking for an invite since my account got removed for inactivity. Didn't know you had to keep logging in
Look at the left side of your svdt. For example, if it has <file1> on the left, search for <file1> on the right, and press Y with the cursor on the right <file1>. Confirm overwrite. Repeat as necessary.
>An error has occurred.
>Please save your data in any software currently in use, and then restart the system.
When will it end?
I don't know if they do takey backsies, and it's been like a year since it's been deleted
rip bitgamer tho
yeah I think it's a month before it's deleted. No idea why it's not lenient at all, I doubt it's a lot of effort to have an account that doesn't access the site
>update O3DS emunand to 10.3
>rxtools boots up like normal, until it 's actually about to get to the home menu
>"preparing to start the home menu..."
>"an error has occurred, hold down power button and try again"
>can't get past
>can still boot up sysnand though luckily
w-what the fuck did i do?
I mean, I know I can restore my emunand no problem, but I want muh update so I can play some of the games I already own.
No, you extract the .rar file. It has the updates folder inside. Put that in your SD root.
Kept happening to me for 2 days. I resorted to formatting my 3DS via system settings. Before that, use svdt or savedatafiler to backup and saves you don't want to lose. You'll have to redownload everything.
Worked the first time I tried after formatting.
When you're done with the downgrade and CFW setup, use svdt or savedatafiler again to restore your saves.
yeah. but i suspect with the massive influx of people hacking their 3ds someone will upload a ton of games to mega and we wont even need blackcats
i honestly hope someone dumps everything that shitty 3diso site has so i dont have to wait a week for the confirmation email
Same problem here
How can you restore emunand if I may ask
I used this no issues
I just plugged my SD card in and then selected to inject into emunand partition the "NAND.bin" file that I backed up back in gateway when I formatted my emunand.
You'll have to reinject FBI into H&S though but it really isn't a big deal.
My real problem is that I wanna fucking update to 10.3 dawg
>failed attempt at downgrading
Any homebrew programs I can use to rip my save files out of retail carts and import them into CIA games?
I decided since I had extra room to install CIA versions of a bunch of my more played retail carts so I don't have to swap through them all the time. Just need to get my saves over.
Should I be getting errors when attemping to install .cias on FBI in my Emunand via rxTools? Like:
Could not install app.
Summary: invalid arguement
description: already exists"
I have a few cartridge games that I would like to continue playing. I'm pretty far in them too so its like eehhhhhhhhh.
My friend had a similar problem too - except he could make it past the "preparing home screen" message and actually make it to the home screen, but it would like lock up and freeze after a few seconds. An "error has occurred please power off" system message appeared too
>mfw I am having fun
I'd have bought it if shit wasn't region locked you stupid fucking nintendo!
I still miss black for the pretty much guarantee of no virusses & earlier releases
for example, there's no fucking way I'm going to download any of the bitcoin miner infested torrents of Dragon's Dogma right now, and all the mad max torrents have complaints too
you don't need the confirmation email to browse, also the site isn't that good, most uploaders use shitty 50 kb/s hosts and you have to weed through them
just use mega3dsroms blogspot it (make sure to only download ones that are tagged CIA unless you want to convert them) & mega nz/#F!cc10iZ7I!6lsenuB_u1kvLukCOpDXSA
backup their savefiles using svdt and install the cias
earthbound with blargsnes, I've never had a handheld or console before the 3ds so using actual buttons is a nice experience

What's the best cheap flashcart currently for a DSi? My Acekard doesn't work anymore because I fucked up.
Do they all come with updated firmware and everything?
Now that I have MenuHax to load into HBL and have the emunand set up and everything, is there any reason to keep ironfall? Will there ever be a situation where I need it to get into HBL?
I was using my finger + stylus but I kept missing notes. WIth 2 styluses I am doing much better. You can buy special drum stylus that are softer iirc
I don't have a ps vita, but if I get one I'll buy it. Not like the people making this game are hard up for cash though.
Yup. Personally I install the game, play the game (so it makes the save file) then install dlc. Worked fine for me.
I haven't installed DLC yet, I only downloaded one so far
I downloaded DD & DLC, installed one of them, don't know if it was the DLC or the game, but I assume DLC because it was faster
got an error when trying to install the second after (guessing the game) so I might have fucked up
I'm guessing it's the same tho
Mario Luigi Dream Team
Majora's Mask 3DS
Triforce Heroes (played online and holy fuck some people are retarded, but fun overall)
Little Battlers Experience
Kirby Triple Deluxe
Have installed but not played yet:
Persona Q undub
Pokemon SUPR Myster Dungeon
I had MHX translation patch v7 1.1 but it wasn't translated enough for my liking. Pretty much all the dialogue was still in Japanese.
Also tried the JPN ver of FF Explorers which was okay. Pretty much a Monster Hunter clones but seemingly simpler.
Also tried Pilotwings Resort and holy fuck it's shit. It's only like <100mb so I haven't bothered uninstalling it.
If you're going to use CHMM2, you need to run a dsp_firm_dumper file through homebrew first, then you can install the .cia through FBI/BBM and CHMM2 will appear as an icon on your home menu.
>try to make it so menuhax triggers when im not pressing L in sysnand
>does the same thing in emuNAND so it goes straight to hbl when i launch cakes
any way to fix this? do i have to delete menuhax?
Followed this guide for o3ds: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
After unlinking nands menuhax doesn't work
Did I fuck up or do I enter with browserhax and simply reinstall menuhax?
Haven't played too much of it (only did the first practice battle) but I like it. I really like Level5 games. The combat is pretty cool and I assume the game will get more intricate as you get further and upgrade you battlers and stuff. Definitely worth a try IMO.
People seem to love it or hate it. I personally really like it. The combat could turn some people off, but it's basically just auto attacks from 3/6 of your Yo-Kais and use trigger special attacks once a Yo-Kai has charged it. You can also swap Yo-Kais mid battle.
Besides the combat, the overall game is very comfy IMO and I'm enjoying it a lot.
I've been out of the scene for awhile and i come back to this
I already downgraded and installed CFW now i just need a bigger SD
Thanks for the guides, /hbg/
Do I have to install the agb_firm_patched through FBI or CakesFW?
How do I know when I'm installing it to sysNAND and when I'm installing it to emuNAND?
Does the Ambassador Certificate affect anything?
I ran into what might be a problem. I figured my 4gb card that came with the 3DS would be enough for games, but after making the emunand take up nearly half of it, there is only about 14,000 blocks of space which is too small for some games.
Please tell me now that I've done every vital step there is a really easy way to use the bigger card. Please don't tell me I need to do it all over again.
What's the best way to install custom themes on Emunand (Rx3.0) while having both menuhax *and* CtrBootManager? I've read that using CHMM and Howlingtheme (?) both make CTR unusable, how true is this?
I've already unlinked nands
Going to something akin to wallmart on post
Just checking again all I need to finish this today are SD adapter to read in my lappy all the files duh. 64 gb converted to FAT32. And everything else I can download and just follow guide right?
Just worried about the hardware and physical aspects really
You shouldn't have menuhax installed in emunand, I did that and had what you have. When you end up in the 2nd hbl just go into menuhax from there and select to delete menuhax. Should fix it.
How do I check what update is currently available for the N3DS before checking? I'd hate to accidentally update to 10.4
I have 10.1 on my N3DS XL, and from what I understand I should upgrade to 10.3 since that was what the tool was designed for.
Any decent guide on how to install emunand in another SD card? I don't care about the contents of the new SD card, I just want to make it CFW ready or something
The emunand tools thingy just gave me a file called emunand.bin that I don't know what the fuck to do with it
>tfw if I fail finals next week banned from studying
>CAN'T WAKE UP
thanks for not needing to be spoonfeed for every little thing
we need more anons like you
10.3 is the latest update out. 10.4 is coming monday
format emunand on new sd card using gateway's launcher. stick in your computer and inject emunand.bin file you made using emunand tool
Dumping SysNAND to the SD card doesn't work
>tfw dropped out of college
>work shitty tech job and play free vidya in all my spare time
I feel like my 8 GB card is not cutting it anymore and wanted to upgrade to a bigger one. I have already downgraded and everything and been using rxtools with menuhax coldboot since a few days, I was wondering, if I change my SD card, how do I pass all the stuff I did to that one? Is it as simple as copy pasting everything from one SD card to another or is there something else I have to do and re-install? If so, what?
Uninstalled the DLC through FBI's title uninstall, tried to install the game again, same error

You need to install even more, I know it sounds insane but once your home menu is overflowing with unplayed shit you simply won't be bothered to play ANY of it.
This coming from a person who will hammer away at a leaked game and complete it in typically 4-6 hours long before it's even released.
I've got like 4 fucking harvest moon games on here, 4!
I have a full set up o3ds, is there still a way to get ironhax to work in case menuhax breaks again and I'm bamboozled when 10.4 hits?
Yes. People always flack on the main character for being a faggot at the beginning of the game but its still really enjoyable. combat is really fun. It has a lot of backtracking but I didnt mind it. Plus the plot twists are good. took me about a good 50 hours to beat. pretty fun
Okay, so, I somehow managed to get BBM on my sysnand, but not my emunand? How do I get it or FBI there? I'm using rxTools.
Alternately, is there any reason I shouldn't just install games to the sysnand? I installed a few there already, I heard that it was nebulously bad but not why yet.
>mfw I own all but the japanese games
I am abad pirate
smash does this. Hold L or however it is you get into emuNAND. This is why I have it set to go to emuNAND if I press nothing, and sysNAND IF i HOLD x
you know there's a fucking screenshot feature right
MHX, MH4U and Smash 4 all do this on O3DS. All those games use the extra RAM put aside for the OS so when you close out of them it restarts the system(but when in emunand it boots you into system nand)
instead of closing out of them, I just open another app on the homescreen. you dont get booted into sysnand then
Holy shit dude what happened
I left for 2 weeks and suddenly it's possible to pirate every single 3DS.
Alright, I already have a 3DS with 6.1 sysnand and 10.3 emunand but I have a N3DS XL and a 3DS XL with 9.5.
Should I downgrade and install cfw on them before Nintendo releases the new patch?
After 2 days and many fuck ups I am finally running 10.3 with rxTools.
BigBlueMenu and FBI installed.
Now, time to redownload my eshop games, and then try rhythm heaven.
Two last questions: I won't still have my saves from eshop games, will I? And since I have to redownload them all anyways, where can I find the old games folders on my SD card so I can delete them?
Thank you for your help everyone.
yes, via gateway launcher. Hold up when pressing A on "Downgrade Console" with NAND.bin on root
be careful you don't use an emunand backup with patches on it or you could brick sysnand
regarding the Fix Error 022-2634 (Accessing eShop) step...
i have an old 3DS XL that i received from a friend in 2014 after he got bored with it; do i need his credentials for this step? when i enter eShop it logs into his account but of course i don't have its password.
if i need the account name and password to fix the eshop, can i still do that monday or i'll have to fix it before they release the 10.4 update?
It helps you autoboot into emuNAND. Try saving the HB payload to your SD card by holding Y when starting HBlauncher Loader. Open up the payload and make sure that it redirects you to the right file. CTRL+F "boot" inside the payload.
hey guys, on this pastebin -> "paste / ndvW5Aji"

Or is cakes necessary for me to be a happy pirate?
>can't get past this fucking CIA error in sysUpdater
I'm starting to think this whole thing is an elaborate ruse made to just make me sad it won't work for me.
I'm literally on the last step, but FBI won't inject into the health and safety app. Following the GBATemp guide.
>Downgraded by using the "mash B on FTPony" trick
>need to inject FBI into H&S so I can install FBI to install .cia files
>FBI won't inject
What do, /vg/? I'm literally at the last step and I'm ready to pull my hair out. I know I should quit while I'm ahead since it's region-free now, but I'm not about to pay $100 for Fire Emblem.
>need to inject FBI into H&S so I can install FBI to install .cia files
>FBI won't inject
you don't need to do this with cakes. just boot the homebrew menu use FBI to install FBI
Hello, retard here. How can I boot Gateway on my New 3DS to link my NAND.bin to sysNAND so that I can upgrade and try again? I had a bad downgrade, which made the signature patch unusable from any CFW.
in his defense, it's easier and faster to use phone, when it's already plugged into the computer.
I can't be bothered to jump into homebrew when it requires a reboot, and the rx version never connects for me.
During the sysnand reformatting process, the guide suggested that I back up my SD cards files and then move them back onto the card after. My games aren't appearing, so I am just redownloading them.
Is there anyway to tell which of these older folders contain my games? Because they are just taking up space at this point
No idea then.
I lost all my retail games too, and none of the guides are all that explicit about restoring them.
On that note, does anyone know how to restore my previous saves to redownloaded titles?
>Dont check /hbg/ for a while
>want to see news on KTM that is so much safer for downgrading
Iam so happy I wasnt wrong about this shitter, I knew he wouldnt release anything.
the code.bin replaces the rxtools.dat.
Because if your downgrade was faulty you could just update again. Now thats gone.
I used this the first time, and I had all my retail games. Problem was that I didn't mention I was on a N3DS and an anon said I could update, fucked stuff up and started over. When I did the unlink emunand part, I ended up with 3 folders instead of two. That's where I lost all my shit.
Hope it works for you.
So I'm using this guide, and I guess I'm a retard because I'm stuck on the part where you unlink the SysNAND and EmuNAND. I made sure I was on SysNAND, took out my SD, formatted, went through the initial setup, rebooted while holding L, and it took me to the regular 3DS menu instead of RxTools. Is there a step that the writer of this skipped or something? Am I supposed to reinstall Menuhax and then RXtools again?
Also, why the fuck was there no section on backup up your EmuNAND before unlinking with SysNAND? I'm scared that I lost all my save data for Animal crossing and Pokemon now because of this shit.
Made a backup of my EmuNAND but it's fucking useless since I can't even go into EmuNAND anyway. Using homebrew launcher, it doesn't seem like I can install Menuhax anymore caus the manager errors me out.
Okay, so I'm doing this guide
I'm on step 17: " Put the SD card back into the 3DS and hold L while you turn it on"
When I hold L while turning the system on, nothing happens?
Hey, I come to you guys with two questions.
First of all, is there a way to launch NTR at the same time as rxTools, instead of having to launch a CIA to trigger it in emuNAND? I know it's not much but give an inch...
Also, the eShop gives me an error 007-2920 when I try to redownload some of my games or updates. Is it because I'm only in 9.5?
thank you very much for the guides family. i was following the ones on gbatemp, but i learned some stuff here as well. it took a while, longer than expect, but now everything works, even autoboot. i'm glad i waited for a cfw before buying a gateway.
i love all of you magnificent bastards
Enter the regular (sysNAND) 3ds menu, click on change theme (it will create a folder or something)
Then enter homebrew with browserhax and reinstall menuhax
Hurry up anon the time is ticking
I've installed and played a number of games, but two games aren't working, and I cant figure out why.
The first is Majora's Mask 3D, which gets to the game's loading screen, and then crashhes to the home menu where it tells me I have to reboot.
The other is MonHun X, which gives me "an error has occured" after the 3DS logo screen.
MM3D i converted to .cia from .3ds, and I've tried running MHX both with and without
Any ideas why these games in particular wont work?
Lower than if you do it now
If you're willing to do this method (sounds like you're considering it), why not do it now? You have higher chances of succeeding with 10.3 being a cushion for your softbricks.
"Move the NAND.bin you just made from the SD card to your PC. Keep it safe." Does would also mean, copy the bin file, and remove it from the SD card?
When I launched rxtool, it tells me that emuNAND not found.
At step 20: "Go to Advanced > Install FBI > emuNAND > Check TMD." emuNAND isnt in the option, just giving some french error.
