3DS: 9.2 (10.3 for userland / downgrade, eShop is x.x.x-28 only)
Wii U: 5.5 (Upcoming IOSU exploit)
Vita: 3.51 (Userland)
PS4: 1.76 (Webkit)
N3DS emuNAND can't be updated past 9.5
O3DS emuNAND can update all the way to 10.3

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.
Updated my emunand to 9.5, now when I boot into emunand it gives me a popupm saying "setting up home screen" that turns into a black screen.
Apparently this works as a fix, but how do I tell which folder is my emunand's? I see two, one called 08df9e and one called b1c8a83
what can i do... its the 10 time i try to downgrade and it get the 3ds semi-bricked .....
The sysupdate app when i start it it looks like this it is safe or its "safe" to restart the process?
Perhaps try one of the newer sysUpdater builds. That's the TuxSH one, isn't it?
In any case, you better get it sorted out soon, since once 10.4 comes out you'll be fucked if you semi-brick it.
generally the newest created folder in /Nintendo 3DS/
Just rename it (add an underscore to the beginning rather than deleting) and it should work. if not, try the other folder.
if you launch HBL from your emunand, yes. you can also install the chmm2 cia to your emunand for direct access to your themes
backup your nand.bin (and emunand.bin) once you have everything setup the way you want. then move that shit off your sdcard. no need to keep it there
keep trying. sysupdater blows and will fail repeatedly until it magically works. get an updated build if you can.
>getting the homebrew launcher
>browser inaccessible since I'm on 9.9.9-26U
>need to update
Well I guess it's a good thing I'm finally doing this before the supposed imminent update that stop all this.
How long does the downgrade take? It's been going like this for a while.
Downgraded the 2DS to 9.2 and have some retarded questions but I think they are simple, please stay with me.
-Have MH4U digital and ALBW was free stuff, smash and pokemon are physical. If I don't really care about losing those 2 games/saves as they are console tied can I just reset the SD card in the 2DS to fast things up?
-If I can do the above there is there a real need in unlinking the 2 sys and emu?
-SD is 16GB, if it breaks up because of that cheap lock in feature but have a backup can said backup of games/saves be savaged?
>downgrading to Windows 95
>not just installing gentoo
o3ds? you're fine. just don't update emunand to 10.4.
n3ds? get back to 9.5
re-menuhax. use menuhax to change themes in sysnand. chmm2 for themes in emunand
it happens, just power off and try again.
I am downgraded, with rxtools setup running emunand at 10.3 with fbi over H&S.
But I still can't get the smash update to take.
I am installing the us cia over the us version of smash and it ain't doing shit.
It also won't let me install it as it already exists.
if you haven't installed any themes yet... go into sysnand (open system settings and leave) and change the icon display to like 1 row or some shit.
then go into emunand. if your homescreen is NOT 1-row across (or however you changed it in sysnand) you're in emunand.
There isn't anything showing you which one you are on.
But if you went through rxtools of crtboot or whatever its called you are most likely on emunand.
Easiest way to check is to go to settings, but then you boot back into sysnand.
You can change the emunand theme though and it doesn't break menuhax.
So just change emunand to a different theme and it will be easy to tell.
The guy that fucked up his HB here
update: I managed to get HB back by doing system format + clean SD...
holy fuck, if I managed to fuck up HB then how much can I break by downgrading... now I'm scared
Some of you guys are alright, don’t go to GBATemp tomorrow.
This is what i get when i start the syaupdater app. Its ok the app or its an error?
9.5 is the highest version that has exploits on n3ds. and as of now, no games require higher than 9.5 to run (i believe). if there are any, they can just be fw spoofed.
at least, that's my understanding. i don't have an n3ds so i haven't been paying attention to the reasoning. but it's been said pretty frequently so there's gotta be something to it.
>installed a backdoor hack in all of our 3DS' thatr allows him to EXPLODE THEM ON COMMAND
GO TO THE POLICE
TELL THEM WHAT YOU'VE DONE
CONFESS TO YOUR CRIMES
AND HOPE THEY HAVE A BOMB DISPOSAL TEAM ON CALL
Is there a FAQ anywhere?
I have a few basic Q&As that have been answered, just seems it would be easier to post them instead of getting them asked all the time
>Difference between .cia and .3ds
>CIA use the consoles system ID which is unique for every system. with those, there is no way of getting banned
>.3DS files need private headers to play online. If you dont use your own private header it just automatically sticks you with a public one. Public headers have a guaranteed chance of getting banned because if nintendo sees the two exact same headers online you get banned from the game
>put sysUpdater inside root/3DS/
>put updates inside root/
>boot homebrew launcher
>sysUpdater crashes for an hour straight
>download another link for sysUpdater
>gives some error that it can't find CIA files for two hours straight
I'm fucking done with this shit, it doesn't work. This is all one big joke i'm not in on isn't it.
i created the partition on the drive just like the guide said to and i renamed the boot to brew and when i hold L it still brings me to the old homebrew menu instead of CTRBootManager
where did i fuck up???
Has anyone here tried Labyrinth no Kanata, I remember people talking about it in earlier threads? I could always use more dungeon crawlers, though the story sounds rather generic.
Using this guide: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
At this step:
18) Instead of the Homebrew Launcher you will now see the CTRBootManager. From here you can boot rxTools or Homebrew Launcher.
19) Select rxTools and hold L to enter the rxTools menu
I can see rxTools, but selecting it with A just bounces me back to home menu. What did I fuck up?
cia - readable by FBI/BBM. .3dsx is GW only.
nobody's been banned yet. ninty doesn't seem to care
that's why we use cia files, it populates those on install
sysupdater is a bitch. keep trying, it took some anons 100+ attempts before it worked.
OK So my N3DS is on 9.2.0 and I have my EmuNAND set up and unlinked and everything. I installed MHX and everything seems to be good, but how do I go about updating games and shit? I don't want to have to download a new cia every time there's an update. If I understand correctly, I need to update my emuNAND to 9.5? Is it as easy as booting into HBL and using sysupdater, or will that update my sysNAND?
I updated emuNAND to 9.5, now my fbi and instead cia files are missing. I can't reinstall fbi, it's stuck on loading files. Is there a fix for this and if not how can I start over and reset it up?
20) Go to Advanced > Install FBI > emuNAND > Check TMD. Make note of the Region and the Version.
21) Turn the 3DS off and put the SD card back into the PC
22) Go to the "fbi_injection" folder you downloaded in step 1 and open the folder for your region.
It only shows me the region only. What version works?
Works for me

>rinse and repeat

>Still can't do browserhax on Sysnand
This is supposed to be the easiest part, why am I fucking this up?
gpSP actually runs pretty acceptably on o3ds, all SNES I tried ran like dogshit.
Since you've already got one 3ds hacked, it shouldn't be too much trouble to buy OoT and put OoThax it when you pony up the cash to join the big boys at the table
>n3ds master race runs all this shit 100%
Playing through it, i'm only a few hours in. Battle system with the element weakness/healing mechanics is nice, although i'm hating the generic cutesy airhead companion.
>caring about story in dungeon crawlers
-clear cookies and other shit
-zoom as far as possible
-use stylus to click the top right corner of the bar
if it fails, open browser and try again. it took me a dozen or so tries and I only needed to clear the cache/cookies once.
>follow guides correctly
>tried ironhax and menuhax
>used almost every sysupdater version to the latest
>cia informations install every time
>get this error
I'm on o3DS, no matter how many times I've done this, I just can't seem to get on 9.2 properly. I've tried shit like taking the SD card out and stuff but still nothing. I've tried almost every guide and everything runs smoothly until the reboot.
>other dude comes out with proof of iosu hacking
>hykem tells he will stop since setting up a hombrew community is a pain in the ass and he's not needed anymore anyways
>dude from before says he won't release anything
>hykem says he's getting back to work
Radio silence ever since.
clear history/cookies from browser. reinitialize data if you must. zoom all the way in, tap far right or left (desu, it doesn't matter. superstition is strong though).
which mega? try this one?
pop out your sdcard when booting into sysnand
yes, once the cia is installed, you're done with the cia and FBI/BBM.
I have done that and did it about 40 times.
I also did the initialize save data thing.
Homebrew must hate me.
keep trying. I remember when it first came out, you had anons claiming they spent nearly 2 hours trying before they got it.
just make sure you opened the theme window at least once before you go through all that trouble and realize you can't install menuhax.
I don't think I did, the tool didn't want to work on my machine, sysand is still 9.2 tho...
is it really that rare of a courrence?:
i completed this guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji , i managed to download my already bought 3ds games and they work well (even a copy of KI uprising i got from that Club Nintendo exploit), i also DLed from the Eshop the 1.1.3 smash update (im not interested in pirating the DLC because i have a legit copy of the game).
but trying to run it from emunand gets me an error that says theres no update data in there and will not let me save my game, even worse if i press the home button, it crashes my 3ds.
i dont see the point to use sysnand to run it because it shouldnt be necessary, and i dont want to download the CIA, because i have a legit cart and, as such, it should be working, and i dont want to waste 2gbs on my SDcard.
im using CakesFW as the guide indicates, i want to know why this error occurs, if it is because of Cakes, and if so, how can i change the CFW without much hassle?...
Updated emuNAND to 9.5, got black screen, fixed this by deleting themes folder. Enters cakescfw emuNAND and it made a new one. The device is fixed but fbi and my installed games are missing, and fib is stuck on loading files in hombrew, help?
>Still haven;t managed to downgrade
Getting CIA file informations...
main.cpp:154; Result: 0xD900192F
sysupdater failed to get CIA file info!
What the fuck do I do, senpai. I updated my 4.5 version Gateway ready 3DS for this shit just so I can run homebrew channel to transfer my girlfriend's Happy Home Designer save to her newly hacked 3DS. Literally just hacked 3 different handhelds with ZERO issues and then get this shitty curveball when it comes to my own.
Alright two really dumb questions incoming,
I grabbed my 3DS XL for the first time in months to do this and I happen to be golden and already at 9.2
But, do I need an SD card reader to file transfer and get homebrew working?
And its an 8gb card, will that be big enough to run everything and keep like one game at a time? Say fire emblem?
So I have a retail cart of SSB4. I don't want to have to carry it around so I'm going to install the CIA version. Thing is, I installed the updates and DLC already. Will they appear on the CIA version or do I have to delete them and reinstall after the CIA version?
Did you replace your homebrew launcher boot.3dsx with the RXtools one?
forgot what anon needed it but extract this to root and if you're using ctr then rename the boot in this zip to brew
gridlauncher looks much better then the default
So I can update emunand freely right?
or is still too risky with the nintendo update tomorrow?
Updated emuNAND to 9.5, now all my installed games are gone and so is fbi. I'm trying to redownload fib from hombrew but it says loading files nonstop. Guys help, I don't know what to do, cakescfw n3ds, no emuNAND back up
Can you use a DSTWO plus to play DS games on a 10.4 3DS?
>already at 9.2
>do I need an SD card reader
SOME parts of this can be done over wifi and shit... but I don't think all of them can be. If you're on 9.2 there's no rush, just order a $1 SD card reader off ebay or something. If you're impatient, just go to a physical store and pay the ~$7-$10 markup they want.
8gb is enough~ , but you're going to be super constrained depending on the game. Would highly recommend a ~$10 32gb card desu
none of the games I installed are updating. cant update smash and the dlc cia does nothing, either.
I can't install FBI.cia at all
Does anyone know what to do?
So I literally just got lucky the first 3 times I did this for it to work on one try each time?
What the fuck?
I would recommend you use either FBI or BBM.
There is a delete function for both, you just need to know the right serial and title id. You can find both in this site, just search your game.
So what files do I actually need to leave on my SD card once I have everything downgraded and installed to my emuNAND? I'd like to clean it all up. I know I at least need the boot.bin and cfg but do I even still need anything in the 3ds folder if it's all installed on the emuNAND? And ehat about the EMUNAND9.bin etc? Do I need that?
Oh, I was just following the guide in the OP.
>6. Use the Homebrew Launcher>HANS to boot into the eShop, or run any other game that requires NN access (Pokemon Bank, Pokemon Shuffle, Badge Arcade etc.) like normal to play online. Enjoy.
But thanks a lot anon, I'll try that out now.
Eh I wanted to get this done today, any physical stores you think would carry one like office depot or something? My usual computer place is closed on sundays.
And 32 gb card? probably just any SD card right no restrictions as far as brand or anything?
Do you have the image with all the good 3DS games? /ninty/ general is shite
I got one for you.
I'm using howler.
load up the .cia with Blue, and the previews for my themes are messed up in the theme manager
Also, any time the eshop opens, my custom themes are uninstalled, any way to fix that?
How do I fix the
>failed to get CIA info
When attempting to downgrade?
You only need NTR for Fates as of now.
Here's the /feg/ pastebin for fully setting up FE:Fates, it also includes a link at the very top on how to configure NTR for Fates
created the partition on the drive just like the guide said to and i renamed the boot to brew and when i hold L it still brings me to the old homebrew menu instead of CTRBootManager
where did i fuck up???
Is there a way to make ctrbootmanager kick me to or boot up to sysNAND with a key press?
You do not need NTR to make MHX or even the
English patch work properly.
That YouTube video in the 3DS pastebin.
I have a couple of questions
1- I tried the CRTboot method, yet i still get "Couldn't load arm9 payload" every time i try to boot rxTools from the menuhax, what the hell do i do?
2- Where are the backup for savefiles located? I want to restore the savefiles from the EO: Untold demos, but i don't know where to search for in the folder from before the formatting.
Closest thing i found were two folders containing savs, but one of them is literally named the same as the backup for PW:AA Dual Destinies that i just made some minutes ago.
I have my menuhax to load ctrbootmanager by default, but if I hold X on boot it loads sysNAND
Is that what you want? I don't think you can go to sysNAND from ctrbootmanager menu.
when I had to rebuild the database on sysNAND on my N3DS, all the software was removed
However I made a backup first - I copied the files from the SD card onto my PC first
So, now that I successfully configured emuNAND, I want to get my eshop games back
Do I have to download them via eshop, install via .cia or can I use my backup?
Fucking how? I tried10 times already with clearing data. What i do is:
Go into browser and clear all data
Open browser to get dialogs away, back to home menu
QR code scan, sliderpage opens, zoom into max left top corner, click as far on right as possible
Then browser crashes with "An error has occured"
Yep. Tried miniPasta(Pasta refused to work) and Cakes.
When using miniPasta, brwserhax freezes at grey and return me back to the menu every time. With cakes, it reboots to Homebrew menu for whatever reason.
if you're on 9.2 you're set and there's no time limit unless you fuck up especially hard and update your sysnand to 10.3
from here setup menuhax, cakes and use decrypt9 to format your emunand
I live in the techcuck capital so around here even the grocery stores carry (overpriced) microSD cards + readers. Hell I think they even sell them at 7-11s here
I dunno about where you're at. Business man places like office depot, officemax, staples are very likely to have them, next tier would be target and target-type stores, then try CVS, Rite-aid type stores, finally grocery stores
No restrictions on brand or anything. <= 32 GB is simplest and will probably work right away. >=64 GB are real nice for the storage, but you will have to format it first. Apparently windowns needs a proprietary program >windows , I'm a freetard and it went fine for me with a simple apt-get for some packages then I was off
I don't remember. I did it last night. I think I may have done something wrong following the dowgrade guide. It told me to dump my nands but it was throwing errors. But I formatted the SD anyway through emunand and then I used tinyformat I forget what I did...
Snice i downgraded on a 2gig card and cant do the rest, can i format a 32 gig card (just bought one) get bowserhax/menuhax the continue from there? I just format it to fat32 and then pop it in my 3ds, then its usable right? that would mean my other card would have my saves but i can just pop that in when i need too right? should i reget systemupdater?
I want some confirmation on this. I'm on 10.3 using browserhax to try to downgrade, I added sysupdater and all that..I'm dealing with freezing but I noticed in this tutorial video that person had a bunch of other shit on his sysupdater menu and this is what mine looks like.
I just want to know if this is what it's supposed to look like or should it have more in its menu?
What do you mean you "Got" FBI?
The FBI zip or the FBI.CIA file?
Put the CIA file in a folder on the root of the SD card called cia.
Put the files in the FBI ZIP into the 3ds folder where all the other programs in homebrew are.
Happy home designer is shit, get new leaf instead.
Yeah, you just get the NTR files (NTR boot and the CIA) and then you install it through FBI.
>What files do I need to leave on
Whatever method you use to get into menuhax
Files like Cakes or Rx Tools
CIA installers like FBI or Big Blue Menu
Themes if you want
I downgraded both my N3DS and one of my O3DS (they both had 9.5).
Now I'm safe, right? It's sunday and I've been working for 12 hours straight, I want to go to bed.
I'll install cakes or rxmode tomorrow.
I do have a O3DS with a 64gb micro sd and I have rxmode installed+a bunch of CIA games. Should I buy yet aother 64gb micro sd? Normally I'd just transfer this mSD to my N3DS but I don't want to lose my save games and shit. I don't know how that works.
>downgraded to 9.2
>put the files for the first step of emunand creating into my SD card root
>holding L when booting up doesnt boot into homebrew launcher anymore
What should I do?
Can I just use the QR code and browser exploit to access the hombrew launcher again?
Is there no easier way to convert .3ds files to cias? ive been trying to get stella glow and smtiv to convert. the fucking decrypter9 shit doest show up in the homebrew menu whenever i use HBL
Don't use Cakes to install FBI, can you do regular browserhax and see if that even works right now?
Make sure for any game that needs the language patch to run, you create a folder inside plugin with the TitleID of that game, and stick the langemu_jp file in that folder.
It's pretty retard proof if you read carefully. Ask questions here if you get confused, ask them again if they don't get answers. It's what this place is here for, anon.
You're fine, that person probably had a different build of sysUpdater, I used the same one you're using and it worked after a few tries with me.
OK, so I'm trying to start this guide:
When I get to step three, the only thing that shows up on the page on my 3DS browser is some sort of slider. When I click it, the browser crashes and I get sent back to the home screen with an error. Deleting cookies and restarting didn't help.
I'm on firmware 7.1.0-16U on the old 3DS.
How unstable is the sysUpdater for UPGRADING to 9.5 from 9.2? Everyone knows DOWNGRADING could require several dozen attempts, but what about the upgrade process?
I heard the only risk is bricking emunand, but I really don't want to go through the tedious process of restarting the system over and over again.
I DID IT THEYRE BACK
I had backed up an emunand after I had done the emu nand dump thingy and I did what you said about the 3DS folder, I booted into cakes and they're all there.
I'm not sure what I did where to fix it exactly. But thank you anon <3
You can't download the exploitable Ironfall anymore so there isn't much point. For linking nands you'll probably have to read further down the guide to that error 22... bit.
If you don't know then I can't really help. If your games appear on Sysnand then you probably formatted the emunand though, so your games won't appear on that without making a new one.
ok, so i got far to the point i unlinked the nands, but when i did this i couldnt boot into emunand pressing power button + L
now i have to scan the qr code (http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax.php) to boot emunand :( i don't know what to do, please help
i was following this guide: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW
Sandisk 64gb MicroSD are $20, not worth transferring in my opinion. I also don't know anything about the transfer from one 3ds to another, maybe it's easy, maybe it's impossible I don't know
It took a while, but I finally managed to downgrade my N3DS to 9.2. I'm not too sure what to do from this point though. All the guides seem to be pretty consistent up to this point, but everything seems to differ here. What am I supposed to install next? rxTools?
Reinstall menuhax on sysNand
Worked fine for me on my N3DS, I realize other people are having problems, make sure you follow the GBATemp guide, incase you fuck up, you'll have made an emuNAND backup by following that guide.
Install CakesFW, anon.
Attempted to unlink my NANDs using TinyFormat: Homebrew Launcher > launched Pasta > Homebrew Launcher > launched FBI > installed TinyFormat.cia > launched Pasta again > launched TinyFormat.
Upon reboot I had to go through the 3DS setup you get when you boot for the first time (date, time, username etc.) and FBI and TinyFormat have disappeared from the home menu. Did I fuck up? How do I tell if I fucked up? Thanks in advance.
im going through the retards guide and still failing.
I unlinked my nands, took SD card out, in sysnand mode, formatted, turned console off, put sd card back in to update emunand, hold down L and boot menu/rx tools does not appear, boots back into sysnand mode.
how do i solve this?
Same thing happened to me. For being a retard guide, it kinda forgot a important step since it just goes "lol check if your NAND is unliked by pressing L" without informing you that you need to reinstall menuhax.
On the home screen, go to the "change theme" menu to create the files needed for menuhax. Then install menuhax again with the browserhax and put the files for RXtools back in place.
Install the cia that comes in the zip. It boot ups the boot.3dsx file, meaning that ctrbootmanager will appear again but from there you can choose to go to the homebrew launcher.
so I got into Browserhax for the first time on my N3DS 10.3U.
what is the recommended flow for piracy from here?
Install Menuhax to sysNAND then downgrade? sorry, a bit new to this and all the vernacular and amount of guides gets confusing.
>can you do regular browserhax and see if that even works right now?
It works the first time, but after using it, it stops working altogether.
I tried clearing the browser but that changed nothing. It still freezes on grey and either stays that way or kicks me back to main menu saying there was an error.
browserhax only works >= 9.0
You can upgrade NOW and get menuhax installed, then the rush is off.
apparently there's also some way to upgrade to 9.2 directly from lower versions, but idk anything about that. I just upgraded all mine to 10.3 and did the 9.2 downgrade
anyone know how to fix this? if i knew this would happen wouldnt have updates to 9.5, had a shit load of games installed
When i install bigbluemenu it only gives me a black icon that, when launched, just displays the 3ds logo
If I downgrade my 3ds to 9.x from 10.x, (10.3 in this case,) is it safe to keep everything I have on it? Will anything get messed up because it's not supposed to be there, like badges or custom themes? Should I remove some version 10 stuff from my 3ds before downgrading?
Also, can I just move all my shit from one SDHC to another and I'll still be fine?
Not the one you used to downgrade at least, but you might as well get the latest sysUpdater CIA (link below) so that you can use it in EmuNAND to update it to 10.3 (or 9.5 on N3DS).
it's alright, kind of a weird game - i think it's designed to be played in short bursts. definitely doesn't give the same satisfaction as long term investment does in an ac game. it's just a room designer, so if you're into that then give it a go.
Okay guys I'm going to now keep track of how many attempts I've made to downgrade.
Here we go. I'm already up to two! How high will it go~?
If you like decorating, and you like decorating A LOT BECAUSE THATS ALL YOU DO. Then yes. There's a smaller grid for more possibilities for placing furniture and there's all sorts of different places to put houses, along with different types of rooms so every room isn't a square
Yeah, you could use cakes instead of RxTools.
Both do the same thing, it's more of a preference.
Yeah, there's a home brew launcher CIA file you can install through FBI or Big Blue Menu.
All you need is an Internet connection (You can stay on 9.2 for this) to make it work.
If you like dungeon crawlers, check out etrian odyssey untold
Stella glow is pretty good
Pokemon super mystery dungeon has some good difficulty
And if you want you can patch Pokemon X to make it harder.
It's already pretty retard proof
Try reloading rX tools through homebrew again
>Where are the backup for savefiles located
They should be on the NAND.bin file you made and hopefully made a backup of.
It freezes sometimes.
Yes it's supposed to look like that.
If it freezes or if the text is botched (the last line is supposed to be the color red) then just turn the ds off and re-open sysupdater.
It takes a while sometimes.
On a regular 3ds or 2ds, it's more likely to work.
On a "New" 3ds, it's less likely to work, but the files install like 10 times faster.
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is pants on head retarded. It feels like it handholds you with all those items you can get so easily that would've made previous games a cakewalk, then you enter a dungeon with 20 Reviver Seed thinking you are fucking invincible and you get murdered two floors in. It gives you plenty of chances for gitting gud and prepare yourself and they made a lot of moves function in ways that make it surprisingly one of the deepest and most elaborated Mystery Dungeon games even outside the Pokémon spin offs.
At what point exactly do you need to reinstall menuhax?
I'll add it to the guide, though I'm 90% sure I didn't have to reinstall menuhax when I did it, I might be remembering wrong though.
You're in sysNAND now, anon. You didn't fuck up. Try booting into emuNAND now, or continue following your guide to get to that point
That's what I did anon and it worked fine for me, I have no idea why it won't work for some people. Just restore your emuNAND for now.
Use this guide, anon.
If you brick it while trying to update to 9.5, you literally pop your SD card back into your computer and restore the emuNAND backup using a program.
Go get em, son.
Restore your emuNAND backup like you were told to make?
>Reinstall menuhax on sysNand
Tried this, but when I get to the webpage and click the left of the slider, it says "An error has occured. Please save your data in any software currently in use, then restart the system."
I followed the guide to the letter.
This issue came up after downgrading from 10.0.3 to 9.2.
Should I revert to the back-up of my card as it was in 10.3 and try downgrading again or something else?
Is there a preferred way for deleting cia files after installation? Should I plug my SD card into my computer to do it? Or do it via BBM/FBI?
Also, how do I go about removing games I have installed on my cfw?
Can I use NAND.bin instead of EmuNAND.bin to replace/repair the EmuNAND partition stuff?
So ive unlinked my NANDs already, but now FBI is giving me DESCRIPTION_INVALID_COMMAND when i try to install cias to the emuNAND, the guide says i cant use the .3dsx version to install cias on the emu so how do i go about getting bigblue menu and fbi and all that stuff on here?
I'm trying to install the CHMM2.cia but I get an error:
Could not install app.
Module: AM (0x20)
Level: Status (0x19)
Summary: Invalid state (0x5)
Description: Database does not exist (0x2b).
I found the "solution" for this on GBATemp, but the solution says:
>You will need to go to the "Nintendo 3DS/<id0>/<id1>/dbs/" directory on your SD card and create empty "title.db" and "import.db" files.
However, I couldn't find those folders on my SD card. Am I supposed to just create them inside?
Holy fuck I just called my local office depot and they're out of card readers and the cheapest 32gig is 39.99, please tell me thats not the standard price for one? Thats some bulllllshit. Thanks for your help by the way.
I've never had to downgrade anything. I just know you don't need to worry about Emunand as it's a sandbox. Just have a back up and you can always restore it no matter how much you fuck it up.
Implying I'll ever forgive those gooks for that shit
literally walking past his hitboxes with one hand on my DS
You might just have to "re-install" menu-hax.
>Go to the starter zip
>Replace the files from starter zip with whatever you already have on the sd card
>Make sure to press merge if it asks you to
>Re-open homebrew through browserhax or whatever method you choose
>See if FBI pops up when it boots you to the home menu
After you unlink your SysNAND and EmuNAND in section D.
It's right after step 15. The NANDs are successfully unlinked, but then it tells you to boot into emuNAND with L and create a folder to check.
That's a little misleading and leads to some people getting scared; when you format the system you lose menuhax and so need to re-install it. However, in order for menuhax to work in the first place, they need to make sure they go to the "theme select" screen once for the files to be created on their system for menuhax to hijack, otherwise they'll get an error.
So they can install menuhax again, then replace the files for RXtools and continue on. I'm unsure if it's possible to just use the QRcode to get into RXtools menu and launch homebrew launcher from there to skip file transferring steps.
Cutting and pasting from an earlier comment:
For my n3ds, I followed this guide to the letter and everything worked right away. Took a long tme, but the only hard part was gathering all the files from those shitty free_download.mp3.exe type sites.
The 2 o3ds's was actually much harder. I eventually had success with this guide: http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW , although he is still missing a few essential steps after unlinking nands at line 188:
~~~ It says to hold L to boot into emunand, but the system format broke your menuhax so it won't work. Booting just gets you to sysnand every time. You have to.
swap boot.3dsx back to HBL,
reinstall menuhax (type 2 if you want autoboot) on sysnand,
put boot.3dsx back to ctrbootmanager,
~~~ Now you will probably get a boot loop: sysnand menuhax will trigger rxtools sending you to emunand, emunand menuhax will send you back to rxtools, emunand menuhax will send you back to rxtools... etc until something crashes
hold the menuhax-disable button you just set up (usually L) as soon as you leave rxtools to disable menuhax for your emunand. Once you're in emunand, change the theme once which will break menuhax on your emunand.
Finally, you have to do some shit with your .db files or FBI won't let you install. You create a folder called "dbs" inside your Nintendo 3ds/spookynumbers/spookynumbers/ folder for your emunand. Inside that dbs folder, create blank files "import.db" and "title.db". You can also find a "dbs.zip" file floating around that has the blank files created for you. Now go to System Settings>Data Management>Nintendo 3DS>Software, it will tell you they are corrupt and rebuild them for you.
You are now ready to install pirated CIAs by launching FBI which is hidden behind Health and Safety
BBM can uninstall games. I remove .cia files on my PC myself, there is an ORGANIZ3D homebrew for file management though.
backup with emunand9, for update just go into system settings in emuNAND and hit update. be sure to be in emuNAND though, also this only works on o3ds, otherwise update with sysUpdater
Invalid CIAs guy here, again. Short story:
>Install games with BBM
>Update emuNAND to 10.3
>Go to eShop, link my Nintendo ID and download some of my legit games
>EVERY SINGLE CIA I TRY TO INSTALL NOW ITS INVALID.
l have no idea what is going on... O3DS btw
And why would you?
You might as well just wipe it out and set up emunand again as you would be going through resetting up shit anyway.
Guys sysupdater's stuck on
>Getting CIA file informations . . .
and it's just stuck there. Do I wait it out or power of the console?
To get "everything" back on your current 3ds, you need to
>unlink your NANDS (sysnand and emunand respectively) when everything is done
>update emunand with https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-update-emunand-on-a-n3ds.393701/
>relink your NNID
>redownload from e-shop
No, you can't just move all the shit from one SD to the other.
There's a tutorial for moving SD cards on gbatemp somewhere.
So, if I unlink the sysNAND, would that do a difference to the effects of "NAND.bin to EmuNAND"?
I meant this guide, http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2
Follow the guide I linked in my original reply after you downgrade
Well anon, I really don't know what to tell you. I didn't come across this problem but surely there are other people here willing to help you. It wouldn't hurt to redownload the starterpack and replace the files on your SD with it, so try that.
I use BBM to delete them after installing as you literally press X after it's done. For uninstalling, just go into System Settings and do it the traditional way.
If it's your sysNAND backup, I wouldn't recommend it at all.
scroll through that guide and it should have BBM there.
The id folders are the huge lines of random letters and numbers. If those aren't there, you may be fucked.
Use the Save-Date backup on your 3DS to backup the saves. Then copy the entire contents of your SD to your computer and you should be good.
Only ever install menuhax to sysNAND, NOT to emuNAND. If you know that its going to sysNAND, then you're good.
RIP ANON ;__;
Installed rxtools, FBI. Unlinked NANDs. Now i can´t acces homebrew menu by L. Anyone knows what problem is it now ?
Which fucker posted me this guide http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW ?
Every step i make i get some problem that isn´t mentioned there.
Got it figured out.
Did the whole thing through the browser again, and the reason the browser exploit wasnt working was because i needed to initialize my browser save data.
managed to find a 10 dollar microsd sandisk (probably the same as yours) at walmart just now, only bad part is having to go into that trashhole of a store.
And I know I've been bugging you guys with a buncha dumb questions but I found a cheap ass reader too,
will this work? just want a verification before I go out and buy this shit
Is there any point in going back to the sysnand partition or homebrewlauncher after the nands are unlinked, emunand is on 10.3 and everything works fine? Is browsing the internet in emunand safe? I like browsing 4chan with the 3ds browser, is comfy.
I keep getting "Failed to get CIA file info!"
there's 102 .cia files in /updates (unpacked from 9.2.0-20E(Full)_n3DS). No other files.
what could be wrong?
Did you make sure you were in emuNAND when you updated?
....Did you update any of the games you downloaded from the e-shop?
WAIT IT OUT
Wait, what? You mean the folders that have a bunch of numbers/letters as a name such as "b92a68ee8bf83e3508e6e0595a5e7c50"?
Inside them there's another one with a bunch of numbers and letters, and then there's an "exdata" folder. Is next to the exdata folder that I'm supposed to put the dummy files in?
Try installing ctrbootmanager https://gbatemp.net/threads/ctrbootmanager-3ds-boot-manager-loader-homemenuhax.398383/page-10.
You will need to rename boot.3dsx to boot_hb.3dsx to be able to boot into homebrew though.
My o3ds frezeed on this part... i fuck? Its allmost 5 min with this text....
Alright, I'll play through metal slug 3 in the meantime.
I keep hearing anons say to wait this part out, so just wait.
Welcome to 9.2, Anon. Just power off and on.
Yeah, "list price" for SD cards are inflated to hell.
My $22 64gb Kingston that I bought IRL was on sale, I waited a few days until a place near me had one. And again, prices are probably cheaper for me because I live in Silicuck Valley and the stores know they need to be semi-competitive with amazon prime.
Even around here, 39.99 for 64 gb and 29.99 for 32gb name brand cards is pretty standard for not-on-sale, IRL electronics retailer stores. If you buy from a more normie store like Walgreens or Best Buy I wouldn't be surprised to see even worse markups like $45 for a 32gb one.
If you do that, you might get a case of "Phantom firmware" Where stuff starts popping up multiple times on your home menu.
I dunno what to tell ya m80.
It's finnicky like that, just keep trying.
You are doing this on a "NEW" 3ds since you have 20E(full)_n3ds right?
Also you are currently in Europe, right?
>Did you make sure you were in emuNAND when you updated?
Yeah l even booted sysNAND just now to check that is still on 9.2
>...Did you update any of the games you downloaded from the e-shop?
You mean CIA? V9 is out, I can try and nab the GDrive link for you senpai. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-KY74ErYBJ1dVlBNkMwdy1UOFk/view
Make sure you have the MHX V8 CIA file from 3DSISO and the 1.1 patch before installing this one.
Glad you got it working, anon.
Install the DLC with BBM
Why would you want to start over if its not bricked then?
Whoa hold on anon. Have you not been able to install FBI under Pasta yet?
Praying for you right now anon. Reply back if it works.
as long as your pc sees the reader you'll be fine.
not really, unless you need to install GBA or DSi games. use emunand and leave sysnand on 9.2
yes. google it.
10 minutes or so. pastebin has more instructions.
yes. your stuff will remain after the downgrade, but won't be usable until you copy sysnand to emunand where you upgrade your firmware
o3ds uses full size cards. You can use a microSD, basically every microSD i've ever bought has included a full-size adapter in the package.
the n3ds takes a microSD, so that's your only option.
I would recommend buying a microSD anyways since they're more versatile

NN3DS XL currently on 10.3.0-28E, trying to get 9.2.0-20E
11) Once the system has downgraded it will say this: "Updates installed. Rebooting in 10 seconds..."
12) Leave the system for 5 minutes, it should reboot on it's own
13) If it doesn't, remove your SD card and wait another 2-3 minutes
14) If it still hasn't rebooted, or it is constantly rebooting, turn off the console.
15) Place the SD card back inside and turn the console back on.
i'm on a n3ds trying to run sysUpdater with julian's build. an error message occurred while installing the cias and now i only get a black screen when trying to use menuhax to get to hbl. taking out the sd card and booting still works fine. do i wipe my sd card and start over from the beginning?
emuNAND is an invisible partition right so it should be ok? I just deleted everything bar the emu9 folder on my SD then put the backup SD copy onto it, so I don't need to use TF again?
I did install under pasta on sysnand, but i am now on emunand and it does not appear. I dont think i installed it before duping my sysnand to emu. did i fuck up or can it be saved?
Yeah let me find it for ya.
Install this through FBI.
Works in sysNAND and emuNAND.
I think there's a separate program to patch games with dlc.
Shit I don't remember what it's called.
Something like Braindump?
It's not stable yet so, I'd wait it out.
Yes, it's safe.
Just let it sit there m8.
It should be done relatively soon.
If you do this it will fuck up the cia files.
Always update through cia files instead of NORMALLY.
only getting a replace option anon
fbi is gone from emunand fbi, cant reinstall it from hombrew (stuck saying loading files, same in sysnand)
and anons are giving me mixed answers
Have several 3DS so decided to try one with Gateway card. After booting gateway mode and formating emunand i updated emunand to latest 10.3. I guess this isn´t supported yet because now i always get black screen when i try to launch gateway mode.
Anybody knows how to solve this ? I know i did it once i just can´t remember how. It involved formating emunand again but after that...
thanks, it worked <3
although i had to change the brew file to the original one that is on homebrew page, i have now the brew one that was in first place.
Is there any difference between this boot file and the original one? i hope you understand me:(
Every time I try to update my emuNAND from 9.2 to 10.3, and error kicks me out before the download starts.
Is it mandatory to unlink my NANDs before I update my emuNAND?
I want to update my emuNAND to 10.3 before I wipe my sysNAND with Tinyformat.
Trying to downgrade European n3DS from 10.3.0-28 through menuhax. Downloaded the corresponding 9.2.0 files but sysUpdater keeps giving me "Failed to get CIA file info!" despite there being an updates folder on the SD card filled with Cia files. Any clues?
Replace is fine too.
But if FBI is stuck saying loading files, it could just be the software acting up a bit.
You did put the FBI files and FBI.dat in the right places on your SD card, right?
I have a 16 gig card.
Once you have everything set up and are installing stuff through FBI on emuNAND, you can delete the CIA files off your SD card after they are done installing. Yes, for 3ds cia files and cia files for stuff like NTR and Homebrew launcher.
You did format your SD card to FAT 32 before starting all this...RIGHT?

Shit I forgot, the password for the 7zip is "gay penises"
Congrats anon, welcome to the party.
Perhaps you can browserhax it onto emuNAND? I'm not fully sure.
Well shit. I'll try to think of something anon ;_;
5GB isn't gonna last you much time pal, clear it out or get a bigger one.
Is this a microSD?
Make a folder on one to identify which you are on. Then open System Settings, and back out. If you see the folder, you were in sysNAND.
Use this for the base game:
This for 1.1 patch:
And then the file I linked up there for the V9 patch which you will install last.
Did you use a Mac to transfer files onto the SD?
Nevermind actually, looks like the Google Drive link I gave you for the base game is now patched up to V9. Just grab the base game file and the 1.1 patch I linked. Ignore the "gay penises" 7zip up above.
3ds folder > fbi folder
root> fbi.3ds, fbi.cia, fbi.elf
thank you budy, i feel like shit because i had tons of games on 9.2, and after updating to 9.5, poof, hours wasted.
Ok I made changes to the guide (mainly extending part d)
Is this much better now? Is there anything else that needs fixing?
What the fuck is even causing this shit, though? It baffles me. I already downgraded 3 different handhelds with no problem. 1-2-3 easypeasy bombizie. They weren't my 3DS consoles either, one was for my girlfriend and the other two were for siblings. Now I decided to go for mine (which already had Gateway set up on it anyway but was on 4.5) and get royally fucked over by this shit.
It isn't SD card quality, because I used the same exact card as the others. It isn't model, because the others have the same model as me.
I couldnt install menu hax and it told me i had to go to theme settings and let it install the theme shit, but now bowserhax wont work, do i have to restart my system and them try it again? it goes yellow and gery like it should but now it goes to the homemenu,
Okay, been following the guide at http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW and I'm currently at a snag with unlinking my NANDs. I tried the folder-creating test to make sure, and it's still present when I load up my 3DS normally. Is there a step I overlooked? I don't wanna go ahead and update emuNAND to 10.3 until I'm sure I've got this nailed down.
>Still getting FAILED TO GET CIA error
What am I doing wrong? I installed the CIA files to the updates folder on the SD root.
I recently downgraded to 9.2.0-20U from 10.3.0-28U. When I load homebrew, I'm fine, but when I try to load homebrew with pastaCFW or minipasta, it freezes and gets stuck on a grey screen. I think it might be because I downgraded wrong, but I can't find the cia files. My browser version is 1.7567. Hit me up senpai senpaitachi.
