-RECENT NEWS-
>3DS
-10.4 WHEN– January 11th? Be advised:
--->http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/01/extended_nintendo_network_maintenance_on_the_way
-Can no longer download Ironfall 1.0
-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.

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

>Vita
-Cobra Black Fin was announced. http://wololo.net/2015/12/07/cobra-black-fin-an-upcoming-dongle-to-play-ps-vita-isos/
-A Vita update got released, you might not want to update since it fixes the email exploit.

Using http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji on a N3DS on 9.5

At the begining with the step mentioning database entries and things, I think that's only supposed to be done if they don't already exist, as I did it and in order to recompile them, my 3ds deleted all updates and downloadable contents from my sd card.

So, with that in mind, I owned the dlc for smash and a few titles from the eshop, and they were wiped long before making an emunand and all that, so is it possible to get them back, I know the saves are gone, if I use the eshop spoof from http://pastebin.com/SjFXhB5a
I'm just asking before hand, because I don't want to waste my time to find out that I can't actually redeem the things attached to my NNID, which I believe is still active on my emunand, but I don't know how to check. Thanks
>>
I made an improved non-kickass starter pack.

It should have everything required 3DS side (minimal PC tools) to get up and running from scratch (pre-downgrade) to CFW (multiple, rxTools default).
Additional assitive tools like SVDT (savedata manager) and Decrypt9 (extract/inject multi-tool) are also included for edge-cases.
I also took the liberty of rewriting the firmware .bat file to be more streamlined and a pretty thorough readme focusing on rxTools.
Thoughts and suggested improvements are appreciated.

Alright, I got a new problem. I put the CIAs I wanted to download in the CIA file at the 3DS root, no biggie. rxtools loads up, except the logo doesn't show up and there's black screens with a red pixel on the bottom screen. I try booting up a bunch more times with possibly unrelated freezes happening before CTRBootLoader comes up. Finally, I get back to rxtools and I get the black screen again.

Did my emuNAND die suddenly, or is this normal as you add more stuff onto the SD card? I'm running RT 10.3 on an OG 3DS.

>>128182496
There's no practical way to do that. To keep it not-so-technical, Decrypt9 is actually implemented in a way very similar to CFW. It requires full control of the security CPU in the system which you can't possibly get when running in the home menu (the 9 in the name refers to the ARM9 which is the security CPU). This applies to EmuNAND9 too.

There isn't really any way to generate XORpads when the system is running. Though hopefully, we'll soon be able to decrypt 7.x+ games on PC thanks to Nintendo's key failures.

do you have tubehax set in your DNS by chance? that stops the updater from working.

new or old3ds? region?
most softbricks are because you use o3ds files on n3ds or viceversa and/or have a game inserted, you fucking retards
>>
>>128183634
What are you defining as a "soft brick"?

You mention menuhax, are you removing the SD card after downgrading?
The menuhax payload is invalid after downgrading so it will literally not boot, giving false symptoms of a soft brick.

>>128183615
>Can I just grab a new SD card, and format that by placing the backup on the SD card and then doing the same steps to it?
If it's a bigger SD card, yes.
>>128183646
You'll have to reinstall menuhax. Also, scratch what I said about a separate download. It's in the same zip you downloaded, just copy the 3ds folder. I might edit my guide when I wake up to use the homebrew one instead since it's slightly less steps.
>>128183771
You're the last person I'm helping tonight! Just open the eshop to generate the database files. By the way, the answer to that was also in my FAQ.
>>
>>128183336
That happens if it can't run the kernel exploit. See >>128183009 for why it won't work in hblauncher_loader, or in the EmuNAND web browser or anything.

If you're using CtrBootManager, you can set that up to boot into Decrypt9 like this:

[code]{
title = "Decrypt9";
path = "/Decrypt9.dat";
offset = "0x0";
}[/code]

You'd need the .dat version of it and I'm probably gonna look like a retard because I forgot if code tags work outside of /g/ now.

I'm retarded, what file do I open in CTR to boot rxTools?

I'm using Tux's sysupdater. I booted it up and got the red warning text, but I don't see what numbers the guide is talking about.

The games themselves will be installed to the SD card. The size is obviously up to how determined of a pirate you expect yourself to be.

16GB is the absolute minimum I'd recommend, I filled my 32GB one up surprisingly fast so 64GB is probably good if you expect to get a lot, 32GB otherwise.

The RxTools devs are incompetent and unorganized. No wonder everyone's getting fucked up.
Use this guide: http://pastebin.com/HwDyhSiX
And remember:
"If you fail to boot emunand, copy ONLY boot.3dsx and boot.cfg from here
https://mega.nz/#!NY8yzSYQ!_zul080eqjYYPkwPmaAf5BAdFZHq3QfMSrIa7ZSgUBM
into the sd card root, overwrite if needed. Since you're on a N3DS, open up boot.cfg with notepad and change autobootfix = 8 to autobootfix = 2.
From there you should be done. I'd recommend doing this, now I have 100% boot rate after it failed to boot."

>>128183426
Is
1) Turn on your 3DS into Homebrew Launcher (hold L, select Homebrew Launcher)
2) Run EMUNAND9
3) Select EmuNAND Manager Options > Backup EmuNAND to EmuNAND.bin
4) Once finished, turn off the 3DS and put the SD card into your PC
5) Copy the emunand.bin onto your PC. Keep it safe.
6) Open the Nintendo 3DS folder on the root of the sd card
7) Inside you should see some folders names something like "45kj6h4kjgh6kj4gk6"
8) Determine which folder represents your emuNAND (I recommend looking for the oldest backup you have. It should contain the Nintendo 3DS folder however one of the folders inside it will be missing. The missing folder is your emuNAND folder)
9) Cut/Paste the folder to your PC
10) Put the SD card into your 3DS and turn on itno emuNand (hold L, select rxTools)
11) Go to System Settings
12) Make sure you are still in emuNAND (It should say RX-E 10.3-28E or something similar)
13) Go to Other Settings > Page 4 > System Format
14) Let it do it's thing
15) Once you are formatted and back in the main menu, go back into the System Settings
16) Log into your NNID (top button). Make sure you log into your old ID, don't make a new one.
17) Once you are logged in, go back to the main menu
18) Open eShop and once you get to the store page, close it
19) Turn off the 3DS and put the SD card in your PC
20) Put the emunand.bin back onto the SD card's root, and place the emuNAND folder (names something like "984356h6kjghkjgliglyg") back into the Nintendo 3DS folder
21) Put the SD card in the 3DS and turn on into Homebrew Laucher (hold L and select Homebrew Laucnher)
22) Open EMUNAND9
23) Select EmuNAND Manager Options > Copy EmuNAND.bin to EmuNAND
24) Once finished, turn off the console
25) That's it! When you go back into emuNand, the eShop should work fine

the fix?

Okay so there was an anon in the last thread who told me I was trying to install cia files on my sysNAND and I finally figured out how. When I boot up my 3ds using the menuhax it's booting me into the sysNAND + homebrew and I have to boot up Pasta to get to emuNAND's homebrew/fbi/etc... Is it supposed to do that? if not, then how do I directly boot into emuNAND's homebrew? I hope this all makes sense

Put the updates folder in the right place on your SD card, open up the terminal, type dot_clean and a space, drag the updates folder to your terminal, hit enter. It'll get rid of the OS X ._ crap files that fuck things up badly.
>>
>>128184201
>>128184241
Ah alright then. I'll make sure to pick up a larger one. I thought I'd be installing directly to the console itself, because for some reason I thought the 3DS had a harddrive. Thank you friends, I'll go out and pick one up tonight or tomorrow. So just to clarify once more, my next steps after getting a bigger card is to do this.

You can update to the latest firmware without no problems in emunand if you have an o3ds.
>>
>>128184364
The only thing you have to worry about on a mac is the whole dotfiles thing. Sysupdater can't handle dotfiles being present in the /update/ folder. To fix this run "dot_clean /Volumes/SDNAME/" in the terminal and it will remove all the leftover dotfiles. Make sure to eject immediately after the command finishes.
If you can't figure out the path to the sd card just drag it into the terminal and it will autocomplete it for you.

Do you have to update games using cia patches or can you just update through the eshop?

You have to patch AGB_FIRM on N3DS still, install it to the NAND on both SysNAND and EmuNAND. O3DS doesn't need AGB_FIRM patches on recent rxTools.

I have a few questions.

I successfully CFWd an O3DSXL, and I've been running RXTools on autoboot quite happily for a few days now. 3DS roms (mostly) work fine.

But three things:
1. How do I play GBA roms? I've downloaded the vc injected ones from the pastebins on here, but I can get an error when I try to play them. Do I need another patch or something? I can only find instructions from pre-rxtools.
2. I've updated my emunand to the latest 3DS firmware via system update, should I stop doing that once Monday's patch is released and instead leave it happily where it is?
3. Is it possible to emulate original DS games? I've heard no and it's not a big deal but I'd like to double check.

Alright, so I've been trying to get my O3DS XL modded all day and I've gotten to the point where I need some (most likely basic) assistance.
So far I've downgraded to 9.2 without a hitch, and then carried on my marry way and afterwards went to the gateway site and did a sysNAND backup, then put pasta and FBI on my SD card.
I was able to run pasta fine, but when I went to go and install FBI, i got an error stating something along the lines of invalid signature or some sort.
That's only half my issue, my other one being is I'm worried about this emuNAND everyone is talking about.
I went back and looked at a different guide and found this one: pastebin.com/HwDyhSiX
and it says for me to, after downgrading to 9.2, save my card content and format it. If I delete my card contents after going this far after the downgrading process, will I be at risk of errors?

TL:DR; When installing FBI I get an invalid signature error, and secondly if I delete my SD card content in order to start fresh like this guide says will I be risking anything?
>>
http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji

Tried to follow this guide. On my EmuNAND, I have TinyFormat installed, but not FBI. Before I created my EmuNAND, I know I installed FBI, and I used Pasta to check it was there. Where did I go wrong to have FBI disappear? I want to know what retarded mistake I made, so that I don't make it again.

No real point in formatting SysNAND again. You reformatted EmuNAND so just reconnect your NNID there, it should work fine.

Just remember that you'll need to do the N3DS NNID reconnecting fuckery. http://pastebin.com/SjFXhB5a

You have to install them to both nands. If you are on n3ds you have to patch something called agb firm. I'm on o3DS though. Only annoying thing about them is once you exit the game it kicks you back to the sysnand.

Go through browser hax like you did early on. Clear cookies, initialize, then go to the page.

Instead of being thrown right into homebrew, thebottom screen will have a slider. Zoom in and double click the left side.

If you get an error, restart and reinitialize.Be persistant.


This happened to me. You may have to reinstall menuhax when you got in. I also had to reinject FBI.

>>128186229
That's not guaranteed, it might be in the form of someone with access to some kind of specially modded N3DS decrypting the 10.x firmware for use by casual plebs. Literally nobody can tell you in advance, and CFW would almost certainly require an update too.

>>128186363
I think you can uninstall them from there and yeah, anything made region-free will work (but you need to download updates from the source region).

so i got a very specific problem pertaining to (N)3DS.

I lost my damn SD adaptor and can't get one till tomorrow, which is when i hear Nintendo will probably go into maintenance/push out a new firmware update.

So the only option i got is to insert my microSD card into my phone, plug my phone to my PC and copy the files necessary for browser/menuhax. Problem is my android phone automatically creates an 'Android' folder and another folder in the microSD card.

Will these 2 extra folders interfere with installing homebrew?

1) Backup emunand and backup its folder in sdmc:/Nintendo 3DS/ (easier method: add a _ or something at the end of the folder so you don't have to copy it off your SD card, OR cut/paste it to the root of your SD card)
2) Go in emunand system settings, pick system format
3) Let it do its thing
4) Log into your NNID on newly formatted emunand
5) Restore emunand backup and put its folder back in sdmc:/Nintendo 3DS/

Fuck all games actually use NNID on 3DS, so nah. Remember that NNID was only added later and isn't even mandatory. Really the only reason you might want an NNID is for Pokemon Bank and there's a homebrew alternative anyway.

no you're fine. 3ds only reads files in the "Nintendo 3ds" and "DCIM" folders.

By the end of this you will have a whole bunch of shit cluttering up your SD card and everything still works fine.

BTW you can also transfer files over wifi in system settings. It requires a windows pc on the other end (7, 8, maybe 10?). Google "3ds wifi file transfer". The wifi transfer is enough to do the menuhax and downgrade, you will need a real adapter for the CFW part.

You don't. However, you need an internet connection to recover from a soft-brick (where the recovery menu still works), and after tomorrow you'll most likely recover to a 10.4/11.0/whatever that you can't downgrade from.

menuhax works by exploiting shit in the home menu on 10.3, unless you go to 10.4 it wont go away.
so yes, but if you softbirck and have to recover your only option will be 10.4 which locks you out of downgrading

This is caused because your NNID is still linked for your emuNAND, but it's not linked in Nintendo's servers, because it was unlinked from your console when you unlinked your NANDs. These are the steps I followed:

1. Boot into HBL, then boot into your CFW, I use PastaCFW. MAKE SURE YOU SKIP MENUHAX IF THAT'S YOUR BOOT ENTRY POINT

2. Use browserhax to go back to HBL.

3. Use FBI and repeat step 3 above, but this time it'll be done on sysNAND. YES IT'S A BAD IDEA BUT IT WORKS

4. After that, repeat steps 1 and 2, so you're on CFW on sysNAND.

5. Run FMP, as explained in step 5 above, but to sysNAND instead.

6. Go to System Settings, and NNID Settings. Now hopefully you can link your NNID to your console. Log in.

7. Boot to emuNAND, run FMP, check NNID Settings.

Your console should be linked back again to your NNID in Nintendo's servers, so you can use the eShop as usual.

If you're legit importing nippon games that are known to be compatible, then no and yes. It'll work until Nintendo patches Menuhax which is probably happening with the system update tomorrow.

it worked for me on old 3DS

I don't remember if I could see my NNID info on settings, but basically you just format you emunand to do the initial setup again and do a new login on nintendo network (since you were logged out when you formatted sysnand). After that you restore the backup and your nnid works fine
>>
>>128187989
if your trying to get svdt files onto emunand do this
get homemenu hbl
install it on emunand
launch hbl from emunand home menu
open svdt (itll probably yellow screen a few times before it works)
copy the content of the backup on your sd to the game you want using svdt (if you boot hbl inside emunand this will happen on the emunand installed games not sysnand like if you boot hbl through menuhax)

Backup land is also known as glorious piracy land, or CFW land.

Seriously though, there's some advantages to having CFW, and permanent region-free + cross-region updates is one of them. Menuhax is going to be patched out the next time Nintendo releases an update and isn't 100% compatible with games in the first place (some check the system language, you can play those with HANS but HANS doesn't work with a lot of more recent games). Even moralfags can benefit.

>>128188715

>what are my options for CFW

Downgrade to 9.2 then do the rxtools dance

You have menuhax already, so the next update won't auto lock you out and there's no need to turbo rush. If you plan to downgrade, it's still best if you do it in the next 12-16 hours. This way if you softbrick (usually because you fucked up somewhere), you can boot to recovery mode and still end up on exploitable 10.3 . Fuck up the downgrade on tuesday and you'll end up on 10.4 or whatever and you might be locked out of piracy & region free.

Just triple check that you have the right updates zip for your region and ds version (n3ds), check the md5sum and you'll be fine. I did my n3ds downgrade 6 days ago, and apparently it's even safer now.

I've only seen people have this error when FBI is running from sysnand. If you're trying to install it so it appears on emunand, inject it into the health and safety app of emunand using rxtools

If that's not what your problem is, I don't know how to help you.

?


I just downgraded my O3DS last night, but my N3DS is untouched and probably running 10.3 or something close to it. I could just keep the O3DS as a hacked console and keep the N3DS clean but the idea of having one console for everything is a bit appealing.

Holy fuck don't update sysNAND you dolt

I just did on all 3 of mine out of paranoia. Fill sysnand with garbage connections, disable spotpass autodownload and system info in internet->spotpass settings, then went into emunand, set tubehax DNS, changed the SSID by one character so internet broke, then turned wifi off.

They're gonna need some NSA shit to get me now.

I'll probably wait a week or so and see what people are saying before I connect it to the internet again. Even if worst case I can never turn on wireless again I'll still be happy with my emu and free 1-player games.

I'm just getting a black screen after booting up the sysupdater to downgrade my JP N3DS 10.3 down to 9.2

Tried running the FTP thing from the one guide to see if it helped, but I keep getting a black screen with no text.

Ideas?

I get installation data suite when I run rxTools in browser. I have emuNAND 10.3 and sysNAND 9.3. I got firmware.bin from http://nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net/ccs/download/0004013800000002/00000049. Am I missing something?

CN and OoT will be the only reliable way to downgrade newly purchased 9.9-10.3 systems soonish. I'd say that's a thing.

Skip down to the cakes section. It should have everything you need.

A little bit past the cakes section will be a region free section, that section tells you how to install NTR.

> Boot into HBL, then boot into your CFW, I use PastaCFW. MAKE SURE YOU SKIP MENUHAX IF THAT'S YOUR BOOT ENTRY POINT

can someone explain how i get to the hbl without menuhax that takes me to the boot menu then to rxtools to emu9? or is the sutobooting not menuhax

So before i system format, I copy every thing from the root folder onto the computer, then format, and then paste it back on the root after the firmat? wouldn't i have to redownload the update to 10.3?
