-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.
How do I get GBA .cias to work on emunand? Do I have to update emunand? Everytime I try to open a GBA cia my 3ds "crashes".

I think I fucked up and backed my sysnand folder and not the emunand one
Currently installing the emunand backup with emunand9 but I think I fucked up big time here
Will I have to install CFW again?
Reposting this. If I have menuhax, do I need ninjhax to run pasta? Can't I just run pasta from the homebrew menu, use sliderhax to get back to the homebrew menu, and then run CIA?
Is there a kind soul that could post the mega links for game cia's?
All that talk about games made me wanna play some too
resposting from previous thread
is it possible to install, for instance, the hbl .cia on sysnand? would minipasta let me do that? the way i understand it, pasta/minipasta allows unsigned cia installs from sysnand, so could i run minipasta from hbl and then go into fbi and install the hbl cia?
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?
Alternatively, how do you link your NANDs and how does it affect everything?
My friend used emunand9 and formatted his card before making a backup of his NAND. Can he safely do a full format of the SD card now and reacquire the NAND or is he fucked?
This is actually for a friend, I never fucked anything up
If you go into the eshop
health and safety. you're meant to install fbi on the emunand though
reformat it to fat32. sdxc default is exfat or something
emunand tool and gateway backup
no reason to update. waiting won't hurt you
I can't get to getting all this homebrew shit set-up today because my desktop died and my laptop actually won't take SD cards
Is there something I can do to prevent the firmware from updating to 10.4 before I can get this set-up, or am I fucked?
i have a new3dsxl on 10.3
i have ironfall and a physical copy of cubic ninja
should i just wait it out until something safer for the new3ds comes along?
If anyone's grey screening with browserhax on installing FBI through Pasta, try getting menuhax and use my method:
1. Enter System Settings, or if you're powering it on, hold your menuhax trigger and skip to OPTIONAL or 3.
2. Immediately exit while holding menuhax trigger to enter HBL (for me, it's SELECT).
OPTIONAL: Change your menuhax trigger in menuhax_manager to SELECT so there's no conflict with PastaCFW's trigger.
3. Boot into PastaCFW through GUI (hold L after launching -- recommend enabling boot to GUI in other settings).
4. Immediately hold trigger button to enter HBL again.
5. Enter FBI to install FBI's CIA.
6. Install. It SHOULD install correctly.
7. Exit FBI.
8. Do all the other steps.
Sometimes you'll yellowscreen on the second menuhax but all I had to do was restart.
If this helps some people let me know -- I'm not sure if it fully works or not because FBI disappeared/was semi-there then faded after I went back to Home menu (by mistake -- forgot to do other steps, whoops).
I have an old Acekard 2i. Will I be able to play that on emunand? I want to play ds games on the go
If coldboot doesn't work/Isn't as good as rx 2.6, can I just copy my 2.6 files (read: everything on my sd aside from the nintendo 3ds folder) back to my sd and have it work just fine?
Hey guys, tried the Browserhax but it keeps sending me back to HOME. Researched a little and they said there's nothing I can do for now. Does that me I have to update, downgrade, or another bypass?
As long as you don't install 10.4 current methods SHOULD continue to work. I downgraded my N3DS and didn't have any problems, but I may have just been lucky.
I only waited ~30 seconds after hitting Y and if it doesn't say something like "Getting CIA file informations" reboot and try again. If you see that message you're pretty much golden, DONT TOUCH ANYTHING until it finishes.
>got my themes running
I think I can finally enjoy my games now
New 3DS XL, US
Can I still downgrade and get CFW? What's the best, easiest guide to follow that's updated and reliable?
Thanks a bunch anons.
i'll read the op after posting this, but chances are i'll still ask because i'm dense
download CHMM2.cia to emunand with fbi. Then you can change the themes that way.
blue green red icon is CHMM2. I tried to change theme on chmm2 using menuhax and it erased menuhax startup
So I downgraded to 9.2 and had to boot without sd card because menuhax made my 3ds a black screen and now ironfall won't boot up it just sits at the red nintendo 3ds thing
what the fuck did i mess up?
Not the same guy but also curious if there's a way to do this.
Just how often does NTR fail to load?
I set it up on my o3DS and it never failed.
Now I set it up for a friend of mine and 2 out of 5 times I got an error while returning to the home menu and the other 3 times it simply failed totally while putting a bunch of files on the SD card.
Does it depend on the 3DS how stable it is, we are both using the Link Between Worlds o3DS XL.
They're the most-known, but I'm sure there are others. I myself used RxTools.
Cakes lacks a lot of features RxTools already has, mostly regarding region-free and GBA games. RxTools is less of a hassle since most people use it.
But that's just because SysUpdater is a buggy piece of shit. Just keep trying.
same guy who asked earlier here, there is a thread on /v/ where I asked the same question. Apparently you cannot play ds games on emunand only SYSNAND :|
>can someone verify this?
I've been following https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/ and got as far as reaching the installation successful screen with rxTools.
But it says Press any key to continue and nothing happens when I press a key. This has happened multiple times. What should I do?
i've downgraded and got rxTools loading through CTRBootManager, but it launches to "INSTALLATION FAILED" and "Failed to load NATIVE_FIRM: 4, Reboot rxTools and try again"
but i've rebooted a dozen times with no improvement, anyone else dealt with this?
Some googling says something about having to install an older version of mset.cia as well. Can you confirm?
Also this >>128164586 ?
alright so i'm following this guide (http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji) and i just finished installing tinyformat. do i launch it after going to hbl > pasta > hbl or straight from the home menu after booting the n3ds? still a bit confused on what is and isn't in sys/emuNAND.
I have a n3ds XL version 10.3 with ironhax. I really only care about emulators and custom themes. Not interested in pirating 3ds games. Is there any reason for me to downgrade my system?
Welcome to the autism of frequently tweaking files to make your perfect emunand
The ride never ends
ok, so my memory card has legit downloaded games on it, with all their save files.
once i get cfw running, if I want to play my legit games, all I have to do is load sysnand, and if I wanna play pirated shit, load emunand..that sound about right?
or can i steal the saves from all my legit games and move them over to cia versions of them?
these are all replies to last thread but it's about to die so:
savedatafiler or I think if you just press the left arrow with a game highlighted there's a backup save option
Try using eshop or the friends list. It gives an error if you didn't format with TinyFormat.
Or are you saying you linked the NNID after the format? The issue is that formatting the regular way tells Nintendo servers to unlink your NNID, but then you're still logged in locally on emuNAND, creating a half-unlinked mess that leads to errors.
um that first thing you said is a lie
Nah, Cakes is legitimately better. If people actually thought about the fact that it's modular and you can just download more .cakes for more features they'd realize that. Also, that Cakes + NTR can do all the region-free rxTools can and more
Pasta+homebrew FBI to install FBI.cia
also you need to run Pasta before using FBI.cia
the updates folder and any .cia files you installed
you forgot the ctrbootmanager step, read near the end of my guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
yes, downgrade while you can
as long as you're on 9.2 you're fine for now
>still be able to update and go online on cfw
did you add boot.cfg?
get files you need from here
CFW should take care of that automatically
if the game is new you need a cryptofixed version
yes and yes
stop projecting kid
no and it only takes 5-10 mins
thought about it.. I might
Yes to all.
do it and move stuff over later
you're very welcome
just clarifying. I just finished with the newb install and I'm right before unlinking the NAND'S, but the last step was starting and starting rxtools without holding L which it did but its now just a black screen,
I'm still good to continue right?
>accidently delete loader for gateway from years ago
I got a n3ds on 9.0 if I use cfw can I use my gateway card still?
I got a 64 micro anyway so it doesn't matter if I need to stick it inside.
How do I fix this stupid titleException: main.cpp:148: result: 0xD900182F failed to get CIA file info! error with Sysupdater? Its putting a hole in my plans and I've tried 3 different entry points now.

Bull fucking shit
Its saying description:database does not exist
Any one? this is when i put bigbluemenu.cia in my CIA folder on the root of my sd card and tired to install it with fbi.
can you please help me?
You'll have to call Nintendo for them to unlink it so you can log in elsewhere. Same thing you'd have to do if you throw your 3DS against a wall or whatever.
No, you can't move either SysNAND or EmuNAND directly. You should be able to decrypt your savegames if you dump your movable.sed ahead of time via Decrypt9 or rxTools (protip: dump both Sys & Emu and stick them with your NAND backup somewhere safe).
I am following the gbatemp to update my nand to 9.5, but always end up fucking emunand and with a black screen. Using 9.5.0-23E(Full)_n3DS and the sysupdater provided in the guide, where can i be fucking up?
I'm having problems with themes.
I tried getting themes with CHMM2 via the .cia and all that comes up is just a black top screen with the bottom screen with the A is Install and other buttons.
Is there a specific way you have to put your themes in the Theme folder? I just made a Jet Set Radio folder im Theme and put the theme in and it doesn't read it.
I even used Howling Theme Tool and installed the themes as a .cia but it's not on the theme list either.
I'm on rxTools 10.3 if that means anything. So close to my perfect emunand.
do i have to make a bigblue floder inside the CIA folder? please I got this fucking far but the guide inst saying anything about this.. I know for a fact that you just put games inside the cia folder, so what the fuck.
Oh thanks, well everyone is saying its better, inst it? plus i can get rid CIAS with it right? can i delete them in the folder on the computer too?
I've done this
1) Download this: https://mega.nz/#!XdMCgA5J!3Vxv4Aejx-iVaZKhItNK-XJjduMqV7vNiH9q0vvAK04
2) Run firmware_download.bat and let it do it's thing.
It first downloads "firm.bin", this is not the end though. Keep pressing space when the program tells you to and it will then close on it's own once it has finished. You'll then be left with a "firmware.bin" file.
3) Place firmware.bin inside \FOR SD CARD ROOT\rxTools\sys\
4) Copy and Paste everything inside the "FOR SD CARD ROOT" into the root of the SD card
5) Put the SD card into your 3DS
6) Open Homebrew Launcher (Hold L when turning the 3DS on)
7) Open EmuNAND9
but EmuNAND9 doesnt appear in the homebrew menu. Am I missing something?
Hey guys I don't feel confident in having successfully downgraded to 9.2 from 10.3
I was reading more than 1 guide and feel like I might have skipped something important and really would feel more at ease if I can restart the whole process of downgrading
Should I just go into recovery mode and start again from 10.3? Yeah I read the guides before and hadn't crashed shit and took me 4 tries to get downgraded
I just want to, what's the best way to go about it
sysupdater will fail in one of four ways randomly while trying to downgrade:
>black screen on launch
>text shows but freezes
>text is corrupt, you should exit if it does that and doesn't freeze
>failed to find cia info even though they're in the right place, just press b to exit and try again
these are all random and can happen even if you've set everything up. as long as you know the shit's in the right place, just keep trying.
'm following the you must be literally retarded guide
when I try to downgrade with sysUpdater it freezes , also I have old yurop 3ds xl can I install USA version to that?
Ok great, so it's not lost forever. I'm only just about to start the whole process but didn't want to lose all my stuff in case the worst happens. Thanks
I can actually go onto the eshop with emu9 10.3? or does that not work? anyway thanks. its working.
gonna download some games. I guess I should check bitgamer if they have CIA versions of the games, if not ill try http://www.3dsiso.com/
Also how do you exit bigbule menu without it needing to shut off?
Alright, /hbg/, I'm going to hack my vWii. But which of these do I choose if I want to use my GC controller adapter, as well as an external HDD? I also have some questions.
>What does this picture mean by USB support? Is it referring to controllers?
>What does high compatibility for NAND emulation do for me?
jesus how do i install CIAs to the actual emunand? Whenever I install big blue button with FBI, I can see the program when I go into CFW mode, but I can't seem to install them to the actual emunand. FUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCK THIS IS SO CONFUSING I HATE BEING RETARDED
I had the same problem.
I fixed it by deleting the emuNAND profile from the root /Nintendo 3DS folder and booting it again so it creates the profile again.
Backup the folder before you delete it and then copy back the title folder again once you have everything running.
Yeah it'll freeze and fuck up a lot. Welcome to the ride. The exploit isn't stable. When it does start, it'll work fine more often than not.
DON'T switch regions, you can switch your EmuNAND later but using wrong region files is one way to guarantee things becoming fucked up. Downgrade with EU 9.2 Old files.
None of the shit will affect you as long as you don't update your EmuNAND, but you might get an update nag. If you do update, things might break, or it might just work (CFW last needed changes in like fucking 9.8 or something), can't tell ahead of time.
I downgraded to 9.2 and installed menuhax on my default 3DS card, what will I have to do once my 64GB card arrives? The 10.4 update will be already out by then
>Do I basically have to launch NTR first?
Yes, that's how you get region-free on Cakes at the moment.
Haven't read that guide, but my guide has a coldboot section near the end: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
all *hax are "ninjhax"
you're good famicom, just bookmark my guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
you need to either do the dbs.zip part of my guide or just open the eshop then try again
in theory the emuNAND he made should be the same as his sysNAND was so backing that up should do some good
don't use 2.6 no matter what
broken menuhax install for wrong firmware, my pastebin says what files to delete: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
safety is not the issue, it just takes a while to work at all, and no you shouldn't wait, you're actually running out of time and should do it ASAP
update, then downgrade
now continue with emunand creation and installing CFW: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
ironfall doesn't work on 9.2 and menuhax breaks if you change firmwares, follow my guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
it's all the same
you can't autoboot rxTools 2.6
Etrian Odyssey? yeah but it's quite hard
3d print a new one
hbl > pasta >fbi >install tinyformat.cia >pasta >launch tinyformat
I think there's a homebrew version of tinyformat as well but I don't think I linked it in my guide
You might have more options if you use gridlauncher instead of the default homebrew launcher.
yes, and you don't need to press a, just touch the slider
You just have to keep trying. The error shows up regardless of what actually happened.
sweet, ill pick up a 64gb tomorrow at bestbuy.
can i go ahead with the downgrade with my baby bitch tiny 8gb sd and then copy the contents to 64gb later?
HOLY SHIT. So i downgraded my 10.3 O3DS on the first fucking try, no freezes, no black screens, it just rebooted right on 9.2.
NOW IM TRYING BROWSERHAX AGAIN to reinstall Menuhax which apparently was deleted on the downgrade but Browserhax is NOT working, tried deleting both cookies and history, it stays no a blank page. What the heck do i do now?
half of my irc channel downgraded
one guy got it right away
one guy it took about half an hour
mine took about an hour
another guy's took like two hours
i've heard people here have to do it even longer. some people have suggestions like going into other apps first or turning wifi on/off, but sounds like placebo effect to me, i think it's just a waste of time. just keep going. worst case, you have to wait until a new version of sysupdater is out and can't recover to 10.3 from softbrick in the unlikely event that it even happens.
You need to get the latest Gateway launcher and follow the instructions in the download. Gateway is only compatible with Gateway shit, it will NEVER work inside normal CFW, they do a fuckton of weird garbage to get their bullshit piracy DRM dongle to work.
Where do I go once I get into this menu I try to rxmode and it still doesn't work even when I hold the cancel menuhax button
fuck it, im doing it! i need a guide for the new 3dsxl downgrade!
So, after a few hiccups, I followed the retard guide and my 3ds is now hacked, my NANDs are unlinked, and my emuNAND is updated to 10.3. Awesome.
That being said I still have a couple of questions:
Should I redisable the auto-DNS settings on emuNAND? I had to enable it to update.
It's staying off in sysNAND.
Also, should I only install or change themes using homebrew channel or is it ok to use the theme manager in emuNAND?
Thanks in advance.
I can't access rxtools on boot without menuhax, but according to prior threads, menuhax is apparently the reason why I keep looping back into CTRBootLoader immediately after accessing rxtools. Haven't unlinked my NANDs yet, I'm just trying to get access into emunand. What should I do?
If you used the right firmware files just remove the SD and start the system withthout the sd.
If you used the wrong firmware files you are hardbricked and have to hardmod your 3DS to flash the sysNAND.
do the downgrade now. I'd recommend just waiting on doing CFW until you have your 64. Apparently you can transfer over but it requires a special program etc. no rush on the cfw stuff anyways
>an error has occured
>update recovery mode
>try this like 20 times
Is this magically going to work or should I say fuck it and wait for some tools that actually work?
I made these menuhax boot images if anyone wants them.
Just copy them to the "menuhax_manager" folder and install them using the menuhax manager.
Remember to name them imagedisplay.png
USB support refers to external HDD for Wii USB loading.
EmuNAND, in this context, refers to making an EmuNAND to run pirated WiiWare/VC off of (usually through a USB Loader). The benefit being that it allows for more space than the typical sysnand limit of 512MB, allowing you to install more WiiWare. Granted, there's not really that much worthwhile WiiWare to install anyway, and certain games (such as Castlevania Rebirth) only work when installed to sysnand.
IMHO, go with the non-alt version. Plug and play is not much of an improvement, and is not worth losing emunand compatibility over.
It's safe to assume that blucardfix only lets you use cards that originally worked on the 3ds so things like my original r4 are out of luck correct?
I have a supercard dstwo which is working but I always preferred my r4.
Probably yes. Gateway is honestly mostly obsolete at this point. The only real advantage it has is that you can copy .3ds files onto it, which is faster than installing .cia files, but if you're remotely competent then this shouldn't matter at all.
I mean, Gateway is basically just a CFW of their own except it depends on their cart, and it's not a particularly good (or bad) CFW.
Ill look i guess, im tired i just want to see this fucking thing play games.
I should download the translation of FE fates or wait for that game? how fully translated is it?
Also was dev menu? another fbi or big blue? it says i need to use that for the translation cia. or does bigblue work with mostly everything.
now him but I'm having the same problem.
Taking out the SD card and turning it off and on works, but when I put the sd card back it freezes, or if I put it when it is turned off and then turned it on, it's still black. Everything works when the SD card is out.
Okay so I'm all downgraded, but I think I royally fucked up doing all of the emunand stuff. I cannot install shit in FBI while using CakesCTW in emunand mode. How the hell can I start from scratch without fucking everything up?
I'm working on Bomberman 3DS theme.
If you saw this as the top screen, would you be bothered by the little copyright watermark on it?
Okay so NTR obviously isn't going to work on original 3DS. Does anyone know why rxTools isn't at least capable of launching the Monster Hunter X cartridge from emuNAND 10.3? I would have thought it could work with region free.
Freshly downgraded a 3DS, entering browser hax, tap the slider and the browser just crashes and sends me back to the home menu.
I have boot.3dsx still on the root.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
It's probably something stupid.
If installing from SD, yes, if installing over the network, no. If you installed from SD you can delete the .cia you used afterward.
I think I already replied to you several times, but why didn't you just try and see instead of waiting all this time?
If you're on cakes you might need a different firmware.bin after the update due to a change in NATIVE_FIRM.
Did you make sure the themes are folders and not zip files? Also, did you try the homebrew launcher version of CHMM2?
If you're already on 9.2 then you're fine. Don't do this. I'm sick of anons starting completely over. Read my guide and then talk to me about what you think you fucked up. http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
It's a planned feature that is not yet implemented
If you can access the eshop, yes it should work. Meaning 10.3 emuNAND O3DS or 9.5 emuNAND and updated NVER on N3DS.
Are you on an O3DS on 10.3 or N3DS with updated NVER? If so, then sure.
>to update games do i just have to unwrap them or do i have to actually run them first?
You can update them before doing either. You can install a base game .cia and then an update and dlc .cia all in one go without even leaving FBI and be fine.
Please state the actual error it says, or post a picture. This FAQ might solve it: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>Also, should I only install or change themes using homebrew channel or is it ok to use the theme manager in emuNAND?
As long as you're in emuNAND, either homebrew launcher or the .cia are safe for changing your theme.
Worse textures than MH4U from what I heard. Not sure why. One theory is that it's to make the upcoming Wii U version look even better.
It's going to work eventually. You're literally gambling every time you open sysupdater. The odds are not 0% but it can feel like it.
I was in the process of getting cia files for each of my 3ds files so thats a plus, and yeah I've messed around with installing cfw and shit on other consoles and am OCD when following guides just so I don't fuck up.
I'll probably do that then, thanks anon.
Not him, but same problem. The system does boot without the SD into 9.2, but it gets stuck whenever the system is booted with the SD card.
What's the next step? Delete the Homebrew stuff from the SD and re-install it being on 9.2?
I had autoboot into Homebrew channel if that makes any difference.
Should I just leave my n3DS at 10.3 or should I downgrade?
As long as I dont update to 10.4 I'm fine so why not just wait? From rumors I've heard gbatemp's working on a 10.3 thing that'll make CFW a lot easier.
Is this true and if so is there a general timeframe?
>didn't unlink NANDS
>every time I try to install a custom theme, it fucks up menuhax loader
As nice as these themes are, I think I'll be leaving it alone.
Might get one for my regular home brew non-CFW 3ds though.
Does my entrypoint matter later on when downgrading?
I think I have ironfall downloaded from a long time ago, but will I have to use it to boot into my CFW later or anything, or is it only for the one time downgrade from 10.3?
Thanks a bunch. PS I have N3DSXL US
This is the one Im using because Im an edgy faggot.
I dont know exactly since I didnt have that problem. But it has something to do with menuhax I believe.
Id try changing the theme to disable menuhax.
oh shit this is awesome people are doing undubs, pretty cool.
It took all day but at least i fucking did it.
Its on a old 3ds xl though, never bought a new 3ds. I really dont think it will get a lot of games but i hope the new pokemon games wont only be on it...
Also question but can you go online with actual real games fine on 10.3 emu9? or even downloaded games?
right now if you softbrick you can just update to 10.3 and try again
if you wait until 10.4 drops youll have one shot and if you mess it up theres no CFW for you
you dont want to end up like the 9.8+ never ever guys do you?
why didnt you unlink nands?
What is the error? Try going to the eshop and trying again
>Okay so NTR obviously isn't going to work on original 3DS
It should work fine...
old browserhax doesn't always work, keep trying
>If you saw this as the top screen, would you be bothered by the little copyright watermark on it?
Nah. Reminds me of a title screen and makes it feel more like an official theme.
You should definitely downgrade.
I haven't heard anything about a 10.2 thing. Link?
Any reason you don't want to unlink?
Doesn't matter at all. They all break after downgrading anyway.
im the one who made it, i did upload it, check 3dsthem.es
also, im free today so i can make themes, so request.
Im following this guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji and pasta is giving me trouble. When I launch pasta I get sent to the home menu but cant use oothax or menuhax to access hbl. I have to use browserhax. is this normal?
where can I find the most retard proof guide for installing CAKES CFW?
>If you're on cakes you might need a different firmware.bin after the update due to a change in NATIVE_FIRM.
well that actually makes a lot of sense but wasn't mentioned anywhere in the tutorial, thanks I'll try to find that file
Yeah I made sure the files are folders and not .zips. I was advised not to use the homebrew version of CHMM2 since it breaks menuhax.
I'll try the .cia version again and seeven what happens.
Not him but why will you not be able to unlink them? (I did it anyway) but will we not be able to update to newer firmware under emu9 now? or is that not how it works? can we always update or should i check here and make sure? I would like to change my themes and i did unlink, is it annoying? I just got through all of this..
Well thank you friend for actually inquiring about my problem
I followed the guide on my N3DS and don't clearly remember WHEN I was supposed to back up my saves, someone said before I dumped emunAND which I haven't started, I just put the files ready to GO but haven't done shit really still don't want to risk it
Other than that I downgraded successfully and messing around with browserhax features, see people can't use themes and eshop or some other features if they go with RxTools
I'm still new to this and just really learning all about CFW or homebrew
that's why I wanted to just Hardreset everything on my N3DS and start from scratch again because even though I did read the guide I did it on my own way and want to do it again so I'm more comfortable with all this stuff
Also because maybe NEVER EVER will be able have the opportunity since might get patchd tomorrow
Is it really that bad if I retry again? I'm not having really any problems other than stopping at CFW and that's because I need to eat something and don't know if I'll fully understand by night today
Alright guys!! somehow I did it without running into any problems! So now its just downloading games. Obviously I just download a rom and follow the guide right? How do saves work, do I need an extension or anything, and just as a rule of thumb. to play any game I downloaded I have to start the system through rxtools correct?
10.4 tomorrow. get emunand running on 10.3 and you can use the following when you get your new sdcard:
>what is the error? Try going to the eshop
Don't know if I'm wrong on this (correct me if so) but if you get a soft-brick while trying to downgrade you'll have to enter to your 3ds through Recovery Mode and you'll need to update it to the last firmware and if 10.4 patchs the entrypoints to HBL you won't be able to downgrade anymore.
Also, they might install that thing in the browser that tells you to update if you enter to it without the YTHax DNS.
is autoboot absolutely necessary? can't i just keep my 3ds in sleep mode on emunand and recharge it when necessary? i dont have browserhax or menuhax installed, is today the last day to get them? i'm on o3ds 9.2
Well, the only other version of the same image is this one with big Japanese text. My only other choice would be to go on /wg/ into a photoshop thread and wait days for somebody willing to edit out the text.
>Is there a guide somewhere
Plenty, but I can't point you to a specific one. When I frst started making themes, I had used like 3 different tutorials because it was all still being discovered. I know you need the program called YATA+ to make the themes though. Best bet is to look up something like "3DS custom theme complete guide."
Well, when you update emunand, you do that by connecting to the internet and downloading the newest update. When 10.4 is out, it will download 10,4 and who knows how that will go.
you NEED to get menuhax today. do it now.
it's better if you downgrade to 9.2 today, but not really necessary
after that is CFW (custom firmware), and you have as long as you need for that
SEVERAL PEOPLE FOUND DOWNLOADS FOR THE SMASH DLC SEVERAL THREADS AGO
ANYONE REMEMBER THE LINK!?
Just downgrade. I was on 9.5 and did it just fine.
thanks. I was just looking at the gbatemp thread on it. apparently it doesn't support menuhax(its at least listed as a future feature), does that mean I shouldn't bother?
A bunch of reasons.
I got some nosy roommates, so I happen to get caught or if they go looking through my stuff, I can just turn it off and it will appear to be a normal 2ds and hide the SD card if necessary.
I know it's me just being paranoid.
I also know that if I fuck up in the future, there will be no way to replace the progress I've made if browser hax gets disabled.
Making a backup of this sd card as I type this.
Finally got everything set up just need to eventually get a larger sd card as 16gigs is probably not enough.
Wish I could use my original r4 instead of a supercard dstwo. but I'll take what I can get.
It supports Menuhax, but not natively. You need CtrBootManager or similar. This is exactly the same state as rxTools.
A native Menuhax auto-boot would let you skip the whole Menuhax loader/screens changing color/*hax debug, speeding up boot and hopefully being more reliable.
Ah so make sure not to download that, how has emu9 been working with the new updates so easily like this? I was even on 9.8 before all of these and i never updated. now here I am on 10.3 and its completely hacked. Why did all i have to do (besides ALL that other shit) is just update it normally under emu9?
Will bowserhax/menuhax ever be patched? If it is and menuhax gets fucked up, we I never be able to get to rxtools? I mean it wont fuck up now that i made it but was just wondering if you already had emu9 10.3 but menuhax fucked up... What could you do?
>all these people scrabbling to finish all these things before the update tomorrow
>Once this is finished, press select to unmount your SD card. At this point you're going to leave the 3DS powered on, but eject the SD card
Do I remove the sd card the moment I press select? This part confuses me. Im using N3DS
reformat SD card.
(I didn't have any eshop/NNID/game saves to worry about because my 3ds's were all brand new or used and recently formatted. If you do have stuff you care about maybe get a second opinion)
I dont advise it but I was having the same issue. I just browserhax then I installed menuhax. Held L and ran pasta. as soon as the screen went black I held L again. Now you are booted with pasta enabled. Fbi should work fine.
I'm currently setting up autoboot for 9.2 RX. I'm at a step where it is asking me to select "complete emuNAND setup" in Emunand9. When I select it, it says "starter.bin cannot be found" it gives me the option to continue, I just want to know if it's safe to do so. I'm probsbly just being overly paranoid but I just don't want to fuck anything up.
Thanks! I changed themes, scanned the Homebrew QR again to launch it, and reinstalled Menuhax and now it all works normally, didn't have to touch the SD at all.
Just leaving this here in case someone finds themselves having the same problem.
Use svdt from the Homebrew Launcher. Download the 4 files from https://github.com/meladroit/svdt/releases/tag/v0.10.42d and put them in a new folder \3ds\svdt on your SD card. Open the Homebrew Launcher in any way, run svdt, pick your game. It'll automatically make a backup of your saves when it starts so you don't even have to do anything, just press start or something to exit. Verify that you have a bunch of files in \svdt\Pokemon X\20160110_whateverthecurrenttimeis on your PC, I think Pokemon has a "main.dat".
If you already have CFW set up, use SaveDataFiler instead, it's a much more powerful/reliable tool.
If you a a legit copy saves don't disappear. I wiped my entire sysnand with the SD inside with my Smash and Monster 4U saves inside. All I had to do was recreate the save file on the SD and its back.
If you're talking about a pirated copy then just back up your nands maybe? I actually lost my Paper Jam save and had to start over again.
How do people know theres really gonna be a new update? does nintendo even fucking know? and with all the shit you have to do, do they really care? I step all day doing this shit. Im glad i did it but really it drained me, unlike the psp.
>A native Menuhax auto-boot would let you skip the whole Menuhax loader/screens changing color/*hax debug, speeding up boot and hopefully being more reliable.
You lost me. I know how to configure menuhax so that it boots without pressing buttons but i don't know how to skip the whole loader screen. anyway The guide you (or another anon) posted should do me well enough.
I have it so that it autoboots into rxtools.
I have like 21 physical 3ds games. I'd like to have them all on the 3ds so I don't have to swap carts when changing games or have to take them with me on trips and stuff.
both. the text isnt in the middle so it draws less attention and you can see more of all the characters instead of having one main dude in the middle and everyone else in the background
now i need a name for my MHX girl
Now that i have everything set up on my 32gig card. is there anyway to get my saves from my old 2 gigf card and just put them on my new 32gig card from my real games? what would happen if i put my old sd card in?
Are you sure that's what's happening?
Ah, that makes sense. I think there might be a fix for that, though.
wasn't mentioned because I don't go into updating emuNAND at all
haven't done it yet myself
>I was advised not to use the homebrew version of CHMM2 since it breaks menuhax.
Not sure where you heard this. What matters is that you're on emuNAND instead of sysNAND. The homebrew launcher can be launched from either.
Let me put it this way, if you were going to "start over", you don't have to go as far back as redoing the downgrade.
You're supposed to dump your sysNAND to NAND.bin and then backup the whole SD card at that point before you make an emuNAND (because this step wipes the SD card)
Saves work normal. You have to run everything through your CFW.
It's not relevant anymore. Just use the downgrader. People who failed the tester can downgrade fine.
by default your two NANDs are exact copies of each other, if your format one they act like two 3DSs afterward. This allows having menuhax only on sysNAND so that you can autoboot into emuNAND without triggering menuhax again. Also fixes the glitch where all your games get re-wrapped as presents on reboot.
What's the problem?
No, just reboot and try again.
rxTools and Cakes are CFW, FBI and BigBlueMenu are CIA managers.
It's the exploit that lets us break out of ROP once we get control. Essentially it's what's being used when the screen gets all fucked up.
So it will break browserhax, menuhax, ironhax, oothax, ninjahax, etc, all at once.

Oh, if you already have that then forget about svdt, I wasn't sure if you were just some newcomer asking about their precious Pokemon saves before setting that up.
Get and install https://mega.co.nz/#!Es8nwB4R!ht5Xyf_K9WMdATBpoJde67hgmsWjgklQv297CZ5jsZA , it'll list a fuckton of titles by the last few numbers of their title ID minus two zeroes. You can map your games to the title IDs at 3dsdb.com, just type the name into the search box and scroll right a lot (or hell, just fucking back up/export everything, it's like two button presses each).
To be clear, is this a good guide to use after I downgrade to 9.2 with my n3ds?
Or is there a better one. Since the simple one around the OP isn't clear it works with N3ds and the others seem more complicated than this.
Anyone done any NES emulation on o3ds?
the cia of Retroarch QuickNES seems to run full-speed, but it's kind of buggy with autosave/autoload. In particular it flips a shit if you try to load a savestate on Super Mario Bros.
Are the other cores any better when run as .cia? I tried Nestopia and FCeumm as .3dsx and they both ran like shit, like less than 50% speed.
Oh my god do you people lack basic brain functionality?
Go into system settings from sysnand, nintendo network settings and set your shit up. then go into emunand's eshop and your info will be updated. that error is because your 3DS is linked on emunand but not on nintendo's servers due to a format.
How do I relink access to my NNID on o3DS EmuNAND? I don't think any of the guides have covered that. And mine was done with an old one, before I ever knew about TinyFormat.
Alright sweet, thanks anon. I got worried when my installed games appeared as gift-wrapped items again before I started playing them. didnt want the same to happen once I started playing
That's the best one still. Nobody's successfully managed to improve the kernel exploit itself any (despite attempts from multiple people) and all of the patches for sysUpdater itself were already public at that time. It's the same as the one linked by >>128170481.
Nightly. The 3.0 alpha is worse than useless garbage that was released way too early and it shouldn't even exist at this point it's fucking awful I don't think it even works like at all.
Just the firmware it gets patched on. But they'll block the browser again.
It's a fairly old exploit so a patch is a long time coming. If not 10.4, then it'll be some other firmware soon. But now is a good time to deploy it; it'll give them time to fix memchunkhax2.
That being said smegma probably has a replacement up his sleeve to deploy the next day.
It's a reupload, should work on all systems. I actually didn't use that one but I have no idea where I got mine, this is the one linked in the "stuff anon shared" pastebin linked to by the OP pastebin.
Trying to update my downgraded 9.2 N3DS emunand to 9.5 using rxtools. Having some trouble since sysUpdater doesn't seem to install all the cia files (it probably does like 15 or so before saying the install was successful, even though there are well over 100 cia files in the updates folder) which results in a black screen emunand home menu after it's initialized. I can restore it to normal with the backup I made but I'm not sure what to do.
I used the 9.5.0-23U(Full)_n3DS.zip file from the mega for reference. From Google I was seeing that sysUpdater has the probability of not working for updating from a downgraded 10.3 using CFW, which sorta checks out with this issue. The alternative suggestion was to use BigBlueMenu/DevMenu to install each of the cia's one by one but I'm not sure if that's a good idea.
I used this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/
halfway it says how to launch rxtools at boot using menuhax.
use https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-3ds-simple-cia-converter.384559/ to convert the 3ds fire yourself.
I updated cakescfw emuNAND to 9.5, but now all my cia's and fbi dissapeared. i cant redownload fbi from hombrew (loading files, loading files...) what do i do? i dont have an emunand backup
You can, it'll work perfectly. If you're using recent rxTools 3.0 nightlies, all you have to do is install GBA VC .cias to both SysNAND and EmuNAND with FBI (leave destination set to SD). No need for patched AGB_FIRM stuff. If you're using Cakes then I dunno, probably need to install the patched firms or something, not sure if it even works at all.
EmuNAND is technically optional, it'll use the ones from SysNAND for savegames and stuff anyway, but it definitely makes it easier to launch them.
GBA VC folders from 3dsiso:
im fine with just starting over since people from the last thread couldnt help me, my question is where do i start from? delete everything on the card since sysNAND is still 9.2 i think i can do it
Been trying for hours, am i doing something wrong? The steps jave never even started
Whats the issue? I have the correct update files in there.
I just downgraded my system into 9.2 and it stopped midway because the SD suddenly couldn't be read or something and now I get this error. Help?
I have no idea, I'm new to this all myself. From what I hear as long as you are on 9.2, you are safe, they won't be able to force you into anything, unlike last time when they disabled browser on 10.2 and you had to update to be able to use it.
I successfully got everything working on my 2DS, but I used the 4GB card it came with. I just bought a new 32GB card to use, but if I just copy/paste the contents of the card onto the new one, I get an error that I don't have an EmuNAND. So how do I get this working? I'm on Linux to make things harder.
>Once those are all on your SD card and you're running 9.2, go to System Settings>Data Management>Nintendo 3DS>Software. It will warn you that the database files are corrupt, then ask to rebuild them. Do this and then exit the system settings.
I didn't get this step when I put everything on my SD card from the guide. Is that normal?
Is there any reason to use cakes on a O3DS? I haven't had any problems with rxtools, but it has only been like a day since I got everything working.
Also, what does BBM do differently from FBI? Same as with rxtools, no complaints over FBI so far.
I found dbz but its eur.
Any usa version? guess it doesn't really matter, still English i guess.
I fucked up
I followed pastebincomndvW5Aji to the letter, and got to the tinyformat step. However, pasta didn't activate, and in my error, I ran tiny format and wiped my shit. I'm pretty sure this isn't what I was supposed to do.
How do I restore my hack?
got to line 62 and have no idea how to tell if im on emuNAND or sysNAND, or how to access the former. any tips?
A-are there any good cfw video guides for 9.2?
emuNAND and other shit is confusing me a little and I dont want to someone fuck anything up. And seeeing so many questions here about things not booting correctly, and things not being linked I'm getting a little paranoid.
cake is cancer, keep using rxtools
bbm just has a different display and correctly displays the correct progress of installation, so it's just nice to have a somewhat better looking alternative
Oh go fuck yourself. Download it and do as follows:
0)Take your SD card out of the 3DS and put it in your PC
1)Get 3DS Simple CIA Converter v3.1
2)Put the .3ds in "roms" folder, which is inside "3DS Simple CIA Converter v3.1" folder
4)Check "FW Spoof"
5)Push "create ncchinfo.bin file"
6)Grab the ncchinfo.bin file and slap it on the root of your SD card (if you don't know what the root is kill yourself, seriously.). Then take your SD card and put it into your 3DS, then turn the 3DS ON.
7)Boot RxTools, this release or 2.6, whatever. https://www.dropbox.com/s/5wng13zpz1ccrzx/release.zip?dl=0
8)Press and hold L/R while RxTools is booting and then go to "DECRYPTION OPTIONS"
9)Go to generate xorpads and push A
10)Wait until it's done, then turn off the 3ds
11)Take your SD card out of your 3DS and connect it to your PC. Once you open the SD card, grab the "xorpads" files and copy them.
12)Paste those xorpad files into the "xorpads" folder, which is inside "3DS Simple CIA Converter v3.1"'s folder
13)Open 3ds_simple_cia.exe if you closed it, push "convert 3ds rom to cia"
14)Wait until a message saying it's done pops up
15)Go into the cia folder inside "3DS Simple CIA Converter v3.1"
16)Copy the cia to your SD and wait until it's done.
17)Once it's done, take out the SD from the PC, then put your SD on the 3ds and turn it ON
18)Boot RxTools or whatever fucking CFW do you use
19)Use FBI, BBM or whatever to install the cia, wait until it's done
20)Exit BBM/FBI to the home menu
21)Play the fucking game
Do you need any more help you cockmongler?
Getting this too. The guide says it has something to do with me not putting the CIAs in my update folder, but I'm pretty confident I didn't fuck that part up. Anything I'm missing?
How do I install BigBlueMenu and HomeBrewLauncher to my EmuNAND? Loading up menuhax and using pasta will let me use FBI to install the CIA for both. But they don't show up in my SysNAND or my EmuNAND.
Yeah you can pause now, they can't block your browser or anything remotely. Just don't accept system updates, they don't install automatically ever (do I even have to fucking say this?).
Okay, don't freak out or anything... but you are...
gazellegames was pretty good but they're currently down
read this: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
rxTools nightly? yeah
I'm so sorry
there's no issue
I've had this asked one other time. It's probably fine. This only matters for installing things with FBI. If you get a database-related error when you use FBI, you'll have to come back to this, if not, then you're fine.
>Is there any reason to use cakes on a O3DS?
Yeah, the creator uses it on an O3DS.
Stick with FBI if you want.
Why would you downgrade to 9.5? Do you mean upgrade?
>However, pasta didn't activate, and in my error, I ran tiny format and wiped my shit. I'm pretty sure this isn't what I was supposed to do.
no that's exactly what's supposed to happen
unlinking is wiping one of your NANDs. Now all your shit is only on emuNAND. Next you setup menuhax and ctrbootmanager to boot into emuNAND.
If you turn on your 3DS normally you're in sysNAND. You always have to run an exploit to boot into emuNAND. If you're at that step, get to the homebrew launcher and run pasta, then install and run tinyformat. Don't overthink it. That note is from people going rogue at that step thinking it has to be ran in emuNAND just for being a cia.
read FAQ here at the bottom: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
so I've finished all cfw installing and what not, which files can i now delet
if you're following that guide and you're on line 62 you don't even have cakes set up in your sd card
you'll boot cakes from the homebrew launcher. After that, follow the tutorial and you'll set it to boot automatically
ok, so now than im on 9.2 for a new3dsxl, whats the website that i need to use to gain access to the homebrew channel, since pressing L on boot does nothing now.
what game is it your trying to download? some games have higher firmware requirements for you to use them. For example MHX and Triforce Heroes require at least 9.9 to use them.
>>However, pasta didn't activate, and in my error, I ran tiny format and wiped my shit. I'm pretty sure this isn't what I was supposed to do.
>no that's exactly what's supposed to happen
>unlinking is wiping one of your NANDs. Now all your shit is only on emuNAND. Next you setup menuhax and ctrbootmanager to boot into emuNAND.
Copy that, thanks man. Besides that hiccup, your guide is ace.
Would i even be able to get into gazellegames anyway? I have bitgamer (the new one) they have a ton of .3ds files but no cia files. So 3dsiso is the only source we got? someone should really make a torrent compile them..
