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)
O3DS emuNAND can update all the way to 10.3
N3DS emuNAND 9.5 stable
N3DS emuNAND 10.3 unstable/experimental (see pastebin)
DOWNGRADING: http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 • http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW • http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
-10.4 NOT TODAY
-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 with every firmware including 10.3.
-Rei, mid-kid, and the rxTools team are all developing emuNAND 10.3 for New 3DS
-Smea started working on hax 3.0
>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.
-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. 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.
-System update 5.5.1 is out.
-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.
Browserhax will most likely be disabled remotely. Menuhax will still work. Any safe mode firmware recovery will restore you to 10.4/11.0/whatever which almost certainly patches out everything that matters. If you softbrick, it's gg no re on downgrading and you get to join the 10.4 never ever club.
Also, if you format then you won't have a way of actually getting Menuhax on your system without a prepared physical game, so keep that in mind too.
Reuploaded to Mega if any other anon is interested and don't want to acquire cancer from that site.
Is it possible to transfer a savefile from my Kid Icarus cart into cia? I remember reading someone writting that some gamesaves are encrypted, does that mean I won't be able to read it and/or transfer it?
How can I achieve it?
Cheers for the heads up about the model string, Anon.
For those who asked for it earlier, here is it:
The browser checks in with Nintendo to make sure it can run. It'll still work if you have a valid check-in from recentlyish (it checks every 24 hours and if it can't contact the server then it'll work for like an extra week or two), otherwise it'll just refuse to work.
I have a DLC problem. US o3ds. JP game, JP DLC. I installed the game with FBI and the DLC. Both said they were installed successfully. I can run the game, I passed the checkpoint that lets you use DLC, but I still can't access DLC. Any thoughts how to get it to work?
Why not just make a local dns, read the connection the 3ds makes with the nintendo server and then just have a local server that copies the same reply the nintendo servers send to your 3ds right now when there's no update?
Where the fuck can I get the newest Reinand version? Apparently they just released a new one.
I mean, I can probably get it in one of those threads but I want to know where I can find the official site.
If I have a new sd card ? What should I do ?
I was thinking of copy all the files from the old sd card to new sd card, but should I make something specific for "partitionate" (don't remember how it's called sorry) the sd card ?
So back when I downgraded, I copied all the contents of my sd card to my PC before I downgraded, but I didn't do anything special in regards to backing up saves. Can I still restore my eshop game saves like Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem?
Paper Jam is a problem game because the game itself checks the system region. It doesn't rely on the system's region check (well, it has that too).
Try installing hblauncher_loader in your EmuNAND, use HANS and set the region/language to EU-English. I've heard that it should work if you're using a cryptofixed .cia (like everyone should be doing).
I'm thankful but sadly it wasn't there. I looked everywhere for it, my best bet is looking for someone who was into cfw way before and got it back then.
If your emunand is basically your old sysnand it should have everything, or at least be compatible with the backup since it has the same encryption. Just be careful if you installed FBI via CIA though to not lose it.
>bought a new 3DS XL used (what means used this thing is like brand new it only has a problem reading cartridges according to the owner) for 140 + charger
>downgraded after few tries and transfering my nnid from my old 3DS XL emunand
>just sold my old 3DS XL for 130 bucks
>upgraded for 10 bucks
Did I do good?
first make an emunand backup of the previous card
then run emu9 and prepare/create emunand partition
then copy emunand backup from previous card into new card's emunand partition
then copy contents of previous card into new card
It's Super Robot Wars UX. I'm supposed to be able to access the DLC from the Intermission menu after beating the prologue stage and Stage 1. I've beaten those and stage two, but I still can't get to the DLC.
It works naturally if you're on an EU console. If you're on an US console and didn't have problems, well, you're the first one I've heard of and I don't know of any pre-patched .cias.
There's a few other games with the same problem, Majora's Mask in particular.
>told my brother to buy a refurbished 2DS to play with me
>didn't do it in time for the 11th
>after the 11th didn't bring 10.4 told him to buy it now
>he said he would think about it since he had time now
>told him he probably didn't
>now this and he still hasn't bought it
I'm actually kind of mad at him now.
Why doesn't NTR have "clean mode" for US/EUR 3DS's? Is there anything besides it or FMP that could boot Monster Hunter X from cartridge? Even rxTools can't, so it only works on a New 3DS.
>implying 10.4 is actually a problem
Someone will find a way to not softbrick. The only problem will be uninformed /vp/ posters who think Nintendo will steal their Pokémon from the Bank if they don't update.
Formatting your system is the only way that I know of. Say bye to any digital savegames you haven't backed up via svdt. Can always redownload legitly bought games later though.
I don't know if you're baititing me but here it is anyway
I have 2 USA o3ds running this by the way
pass is huntereb
What I love (currently): Top screen doesnt wobble (if you got an old 3ds xl you know what I mean, it drove me nuts).
What I hate: Button placement. Old 3DS XL has way superior button placement. The home button feels stupid and start select kinda out of place.
Probably a different version. I'm having the same issue.
Also, I'm a moron - I couldn't get the sysUpdater to downgrade... only now realized it was because I forgot to extract the 9.2 contents
>You can still get usable 3DS's on craigslist/ebay
Searching for one with the right firmware and no cum stained sticky buttons and scratched screens for under $100 on ebay is a lot harder than just buying it from Nintendo for $60.
If 10.4 is out then just fuck him tbqh.
If 10.4 really is happening and I buy one from Nintendo later tonight, what are the odds it will ship with <10.4?
i've installed a psp bubble on my psvita some time ago
but since i've updated to 3.50, i cant open the GAME folder anymore. it just loads infinetly.
how do i fix this? :DDDD
i dont want to fucking go through this entire goddamn shit again :DDDDDD
Can anyone give some help on how to fix homebrew giving me a red screen every time I try to open it?
I followed the retards guide all the way to the end, have the homebrew launcher app and BigBlueMenu.
I got a friend who always says how jealous he is that I get to play MHX and he doesn't.
I offer to help him since day1 of the new exploits and ONLY YESTERDAY HE ORDERED A NEW SD AND I TOLD HIM AT LEAST FOLLOW THE 3 STEPS I LAID OUT FOR YOU TO INSTALL MENUHAX WHILE YOU WAIT FOR THE SD
>Nah certainly if I just wait nothing bad can happen, better disregard the advice from someone who knows better
> If 10.4 really is happening and I buy one from Nintendo later tonight, what are the odds it will ship with <10.4?
0%, but others have said that browserhax likely won't work once it's out. 2DS might still have such an old version of FW that it won't matter though.
>buy mh4u to play with friends 'cause they all bought it and we never play together
>I get it and tell the other 4 to do it too
>"yeah, I'll do it later"
>"can't, uni now"
>"I'm too dumb, do it for me next time I'm in your place"

tl;dr - not even Pirated 3DS got my friends to play with me. How much do I suck/10?
Bros, homebrew retard here. Got mine hacked and a few games installed.
I have a few questions.
Using SysNAND can I still use the eshop to redownload the games I actually own?
Updating games? do I just update like normal in the hacked dashboard?
Updating the console? same as above
Lastly, online play? Can I still play online with this?
I need some inspiration, half the theme ideas I come up with have already been done, at least I got a Crazy Bus one out into the wild before anyone else.
If I can't come up with anything I'm going to start pumping out Gachimuchi themes, this is not an idle threat.
I followed this guy and deleted and installed all the stuff, Im using acekard2i and it has the horse icon so its supposed to work on 4.3 3ds firmwares
Im on old 3ds so I choosed TWL_FIRM 4.0 and installed it on NAND and tried on sys/normalnand but it gives me error on those two and in emunand is just stuck with a black screen
>what are the odds it will ship with <10.4?
ALthough I've heard that if you buy consoles from gamestops they open the console and update it to the latest firmware so be aware of that and stop them if they try to sell you an opened box n3ds
fuck you and you're fagther
For people wanting to improve bootrates with a menuhax+ctrbootmanager setup (and any cfw, since they all use cakehax to boot) I've caught word that using the 2.1hax payload instead of the 2.5hax payload improves things a lot.
>find old themehax1.2 offline installer archive
>setup old themehax
>once it's done, backup the payload it downloaded for you
>reinstall new menuhax
>copy back the payload you backed up
>enjoy better bootrates
I haven't done it myself yet, but when I make sure it works I'm probably going to just try to package that payload in my cakepack since it should be the same for all 9.2 firmware devices.
>Using SysNAND can I still use the eshop to redownload the games I actually own?
No, you use the emuNAND which is updated and will allow you to access eshop and online play.
>Updating games? do I just update like normal in the hacked dashboard?
Find the .cia for the update/dlc of the corresponding region to the game.cia or if you have a EU 3ds and a EU.cia you can update via eshop
>Updating the console? same as above
Wait for news after 10.4 releases
>Lastly, online play? Can I still play online with this?
Already answered above.
I meant EmuNAND, but what about updating games I actually own? For example I have a legit copy of Smash that has an update ready. can I update it normally? or should I find an update .cia?
Also thanks man
Did you put it in the "update" folder like the guide says?
Did you get the update appropriate for your console type and version? And explicitly the "*(FULL).zip"?
I believe you didn't and didn't read the guide so I'm not going to help you more than this.
>have a 16GB SD card and in doing this I only have 4gb
DUDE!, How many times did you create an emunand partition? 16GBs is good enough 32 is more than needed and 64 is way too much. You won't play that many games and will have many games that you won't use just taking up space.
uSD with adapter.
No, read the thread, I already answered it in the first 100 posts.
it's safe to do so after you've downgraded
>not some fan patch
but an undub is just changing the english audio to be the japanese audio.. it's all official material
>You shouldn't need NTR for RxTools
STOP JUST STOP SERIOUSLY. rxTools is not perfect and you should use other tools even if you are going to use it as your CFW. Seriously. NTR is needed sometimes.
[mountpoint of general storage 3TB]/games/3ds/CIA and then I dump them all in there
I have a separate folder inside CIA for GBA virtual console and legit .cia files
if you didn't install it to sysNAND like the guide said then you can probably inject it with decrypt9
I'm not sure what the cause of your issue is, but the CHMM2.cia in my cakepack is known-working.
Do you have the actual homebrew files?
In general it is, but if you installed a pre-patched .cia of Fire Emblem If then it might not update properly. Give it a shot, pretty sure worst that'll happen is the update not working.
64GB will probably be fine. Definitely go for the microSD with the adapter.
If you didn't make emuNAND yet, you can just copy/paste between SDs, but if you did make an emuNAND, follow the FAQ in my guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>Seriously. NTR is needed sometimes.
On rxtools the only use NTR has is to install out of region DLC.
You can install and play out of region updates and games without NTR in rxtools.
New3ds user with rxTools and updated EmuNAND 9.5 with a couple of app questions.
Is there any problems with linking my Nintendo ID back to the SystemNAND? Also are their any cartridge save managers? I have a faulty Monster Hunter 4 cart with 200 hours put in and I want to inject the save into a new cart.
I don't know why the guide has you do that. It fucks up everyone. If you just renamed the old boot.3dsx to boot_hb.3dsx it works with the default ctrbootmanager config.
Besides what the other anon said, sometimes it's needed to fix weird issues like names not showing up.
I've done everything correctly.
I downloaded 9.2.0-20U(FULL).zip
I put it in a folder called "updates," (not update as the guide didn't spell it that way) and sysUpdater still isn't doing the 8 number check.
I've read the guide like my life depended on it and i still don't know what's wrong.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
So, uhh, why isn't my custom theme being applied? I go into CHMM and hit A and it says "Installing Theme"
That takes a few seconds, then disappears. I hit Start, Exit CHMM and go back to the emuNAND menu but there's no theme. What am I doing wrong?
Downloaded a European .cia of Paper Jam, booted it through HANS, and the game crashes to this error before Papercraft Mario comes out for the first time. 10.3 emuNAND running Cakes, any ideas besides waiting for NTR to support 10.3?
>Nintendo ID back to the SystemNAND
It won't let you because you have to update to 10.3. Also, use svdt for save backup/restore. You must launch it from emuNAND if you plan to manage your emuNAND's saves.
Working as expected, only thing missing is region-free. Even then, you can find region-free'd .cias out there. NTR is being worked on so it can support 10.3 on N3DS emuNAND.
>STOP JUST STOP SERIOUSLY. rxTools is not perfect and you should use other tools even if you are going to use it as your CFW. Seriously. NTR is needed sometimes.
I didn't say it was perfect faggot I even said you need NTR to load out of region DLC. Fucking tripfag can't even read
I dunno if it matters because I haven't dicked my theme yet, but have you opened the theme shop? I know it fixed something, but I can't remember shit. Someone else will be more helpful if I'm wrong
Please help, I changed my theme to red retardedly and now when I use CHMM I can't install any more themes. I tried CHMM on Homebrew channel loader and normally. What do I do?
you're probably fine
I read it perfectly fine. I'm telling you it's needed in other scenarios as well. Stop shitposting please.
You realize that the time it takes to install a .cia is the same as downloading and installing from the eshop, right? The bottleneck is the CPU of the 3DS. Unless you're going to exclusively play physical games, it's not like there's a better way.
So, I'm using a new SD card for hax/downgrading, and I copied the Nintendo 3DS folder from my original SD card to the new one, but I can't seem to get the existing eshop games to display on my homescreen when I put the hax SD card in.
However, they still show when I load the original SD card. Any clue why that might be? (Wanting to extract my saves to ensure I don't lose the existing ones before I set up emunand and all that).
I'm also assuming there's no way to get my homescreen layout back after it was lost from downgrading?
If you are using miniPasta, rebuild from git for improved stability and boot rates from libkhax updates.
Same with ftBrony, they just increased the speed in github
Relevant to my interests as well.
Yes, I am sure.
Only MH3U gets an advantage from changing the clock speed.
Other games either still keep dropping their framerate or have their framerate capped.
And I will be laughing like a madman in 2 years when your n3ds battery doesnt last even 20 minutes because you wore it down like that.
What was the other app used for installing themes?
Someone mentioned it a while back
Nearly have everything working. crtBootManager will freeze with a red screen if I boot into rxTools directly, yet works fine if loaded from Homebrew Launcher. Anything I can to add to the .cfg to fix this?
Take my menuhax image as a thanks in advance.
>I can't into math
Hour to install a game, one time setup of 10 hours to get games to run, 11x10=110
>Download 3 new releases which would cost 120
>Working 3 hours = 3 hours of install time
You get 30 dollars in exchange for the same amount of time it would take for you to install 120 dollars worth of games.
Nah man, you're right.
>I fell for the b8
Can someone help me figure something out please
I want to be able to install custom themes on RX 10.3 Im following the "literally" guide and I got to this part
>Before any of this, make sure you have gone into the "Change Theme" window atleast once whilein emuNAND
>It will tell you it is installing files, those files are needed by CHMM2 to change the theme.
Once that is done, continue withthe below steps.
I did this but all I managed to do was remove menuhax which I reinstalled just now, can anyone tell me the breakdown please
>implying I actually have a New 3DS, I would actually use the underlocking prevention that much and this isn't just an hypothetical situation (in which I can also simply change the battery) :^)
rxtools randomly started booting into emuNAND after ~2 weeks of it working perfectly. I don't have the option to browse through rxtools menu or settings it just goes straight into emuNAND. Is there anything that I can do about this? (I am using ctr if that matters)
Need a US CIA for this. Preferably not in parts because it seems off to install 3 different CIAs for one game and I'm worried it will brick my emunand.
I WANT CUSTOM THEMES BUT HAVE MENUHAX
AM I FUCKED?
Is this what Im looking for?
>Install 3 different CIAs
The game comes in different parts because it's too big for the free hosting site they use. When you unzip the first file, it takes all 3 and combines it into one.
Who spread this "multiple parts .cia" meme? It's a splitted archive. You download all of the archive in the same folder and then extract the first one. This will extract one .cia, and that's the only file you will need.
So i just homebrewed and installed some games on my old3ds all working great through the retarded guide now i want to do it for my new3ds but i was wondering if i follow that guide particularly the part where you have to download the firmware.bin and make a backup from sysnand etc i would be able to use it otherwise what guide is there to help me not fuck it up?.
O3DS here, did I brick?
Followed the pastebin guide, got menuhax installed and the downgrade was successful, but the system never rebooted. Now it just sits on a black screen with the power light on when i turn it on regardless of what I do (cant get into recovery).
Any ideas or am I fucked?
Alright cool, time to strap on for another ride.
Is this simple to install get it to work?
What about the mega pack of themes can those be used with this app?
Sorry for these questions but would like to know before moving on, about to read the gbatemp thread
You dont even own a New 3DS yet you spew bullshit?
Guess what I do own a New 3DS and tried A LOT of 3DS games in 802 clock.
The most notable differences were in:
-Heroes of Ruin gets a stable framerate.
-Tales of Abyss framerate improves only a bit in the overworld.
-Monster Hunter 3U gets a stable framerate with 3D on.
-MGS3 framerate improves A BIT, but it still gets low framerate.
-Pokemon gets an improvement when battling in 3D with SOME pokemon, most of them still make the framerate drop.
The rest of the games either have their framerate capped (like Revelations or DKC) or dont get an improvement at all like the rest of the fucking games.
For what it's worth, that ftBrony commit is horribly fucking broken, it shits itself extremely rapidly. I haven't been able to transfer anything with it.
Not completely sure what's wrong with it, it's just throwing "accept: 12 Not enough space" all over the place. I guess it's running into an FD limit somehow but it shouldn't really.
It's stupidly simple as long as you read the gbatemp thread. I'm not sure how the mega pack of themes work as I have only installed custom themes as of now. I'll be glad to help if you have any further questions
Sup dudes, bricked my N3DS last week with the "safe" sysupdater and have been chilling around since then waiting for a more stable one to come out that doesnt require 100+ attempts on a N3DS to go through.
Anything new or more functional for downgrading a N3DS yet? Or is it still run this program 100x and boot into recovery if you softbrick.
Julian's build is still the best one. There's a thing called safeSysUpdater but it only prevents user error, it's otherwise no safer than any of the previous sysUpdater builds.
would 128 be overkill or would it be worth it since i can get either for around the same price
Uh, request, post;
The thing is, the true cause of the softbricks is still unknown, but it works after formatting for like 99% of people. If you want to be safe and want a 9.2 system, formatting now is probably your best option, even if you lose some save data because of it. Maintenance is coming very, very soon (see like the fifth or something post in this thread).
Limited Edition New 3DS XL (extra large)
I know you're baiting but I don't care
I use it because I was asked to use it a good week after I started helping people.
I say it's worth it. I have a few 64GB microSDs but I did get one 128GB.
I updated the cakepacks in my guide with a test build of Cakes that fixes autoboot and removes the need for the slot0x25KeyX.bin file. You still need slot0x11key96.bin on 9.6+ N3DS, though.
Does anyone know what folder the games downloaded from the eshop go in? I had a couple of games and I want to delete them, they no longer appear on my home menu and I didn't play them anyway
All they are doing is taking space in my SD
I was one of the rare people that got a hardbrick from that sysupdater without user error
I have a few hax installed and im blocking updates with the tubehax DNS. I'm just going to wait until a functional downgrader comes out.
The library is pretty weak honestly. I can pirate any game I want and I still can't find anything worth getting other than monhun that isn't a jrpg or doesn't just have a PC port.
Tri Force Heroes is pretty fun if you have friends to play it with you I guess.
Why the fuck did I buy a 3ds years ago. The psvita has 10x more weeb games. Just fuck my shit up. Probably going to sell it with my games and buy a vita.
>f you want to stay updated to my blog subscribe to my RSS feed.
I went and grabbed a bunch of lewd themes with and zipped them up for you guys. 20 in total with backgroud songs. Some are lewder than others tame ones in the preview.
>the fucking example themes don't pass the Howling file structure either
Best meme of 2016.
It REALLY shouldn't, but would japlocale upset the autistic br programming enough for it to not recognize the file structure?
Trying to boot into pasta mode on rxtools and I keep getting stuck in a CTRboot loop. It just takes me back to the ctr menu and then flips shit. I tried using the original rxtools.3dsx and it just boots to a black screen
That's the error when your NNID is unliked in Nintendo's servers, probably because you formatted your sysnand but cloned it to emunand beforehand, so it still looks linked offline. You'll have to backup your emunand, format, link NNID and then restore backup. The retards guide has the steps for it, although the sd backup is kinda misleading on how to tell which sd folder is your emunand but you can backup both just in case.
Did this theme get finished by the anon who was making it a few threads ago?
If yes, can I have a link please?
Holy shit nintendo you trying to give me a heart attack already?
N3DS 9.2 RX followed this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-cfw-including-emunand-coldboot-cia-installer.405589/
Is nintendo offline right now or in 2 hours? I got an OoT cart and I want to know if I should set it up with HBL to have the hacked save file so that it runs HBL in case there's no internet all of a sudden
Also, if they do plan to update or fuck people now (I doubt it) what is a must that I must do before they do this? Like I said just finished installing CFW in the guide and got FBI.cia wrapped as a gift and I should read up more on what to do next
After going over the gbatemp thread I realized that this is just a tool to create themes not something intended for installing themes on the 3ds
Did I get this right? I just noticed that themes are .cia which means I can just go to RX10.3 and install them through the FBI or am I completely wrong about this?
I dont want to lose menuhax so Im not sure how to change themes without messing with the menu
>turned on my N3DS
>theme I tried to install has installed to the sysNAND
>can't L boot to emuNAND either
What the fuck just happened? I was 100% I unlinked the NANDs, so what did I just break?
Yes. There is no reason not to unlink your nands.
Yes that's exactly it. You get the themes packed into a .cia file so you can install them via FBI/BBM.
My menuhax didn't get fugged up so I'm assuming yours won't either but I can't say for sure.
>3. Launch into sysNAND with sign checks disabled (i.e. using MiniPasta or Cakes)
What does it mean by no sign checks disabled? I only used the retards guide and didn't use Cakes or MiniPasta. O3DS
Are you sure you didn't install in sysnand? Try the CIA version of CHMM2. Emunand shouldn't even have menuhax, it's pretty useless since you can just install the HBL CIA, and it also would cause bootloops if you're using autoboot.
I'm on 9.2 and want to play my Smash bros (card/pak/whatever it's called) with all the DLC.
What do I need to obtain to access all of it?
Just use the Update cia, DLC cia and run the game within the emunand?
99% b8 but if you're serious then it's just
another brick in the wall
Help, I tried injecting some VC GBA games. And the guide says exactly this:
>4. Install patched AGB_FIRM to NAND (Hit L on FBI)
>5. Install all GBA cia's you want too here (Hit L again on FBI)
On the 5th step, do I want to install them to NAND or to SD?
I JUST INSTALLED FF THEATRHYTHM, THIS IS AWESOME
Ahh ok thanks man so I dont really need the howling tool thing if I dont intend on creating anything correct?
All I need to do is
>Download a theme I like from the them.e site
>Grab that .cia file which I put in the root of the sd card
>Install it through the FBI program in the main menu which would be the same as going to the Change Theme menu
Is this correct?
>Uses new SD Card that I bought
>3DS can't read SD card
>3DS still can't read SD card.
>Finds out 3D's can't read SDXC cards.
Fucking, now I have to use the 2GB card that came with this piece of shit and I'm sure 2GB will be enough to hack it.
>spending more time downloading/installing .cia's than playing video games
>even when you play games you're too curious about another game you've still not installed and just want to try to get very invested
Havent felt this way since the glory days of PSP. Will I recover?
Why does gbatemps 3ds hacking section have this at the top despite it being completely incorrect?
>IMPORTANT: IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO INSTALL CIA FILES ABOVE SYSTEM MENU VERSION 9.2! THAT ALSO INCLUDES ALL NINJHAX2/TUBEHAX/IRONHAX USERS.
This is some bullshit
I sat here for thirty plus minutes waiting for ORAS to download and I get to this shit? Its still at 99% on the right it says no content next to the download speed(?)
Do any of you have a link to get both Pokemon OR and AS games from anywhere but Mega?
Do I still have time to update emuNAND? I just got done unlinking my NANDs.
it's all because of shit guides that don't have you unlink with TinyFormat.
it's so updates don't get downloaded in the first place.
just because he doesn't know where to find his tools doesn't make you guys less retarded
Internet at my uni is shit.
How does one boot into emunand without internet connection? I'm using rxTools 2.6 right now
Guys help i am having the same problem i had with my old3ds while trying to operate Emunand through the menuhax when i go there SD storage says whatever and obviously does not recognizes my sd card it first happened to me with my old3ds and i solved it using my old 4gb card (previously had that error while using a 16gb verbatim) now i am having the very same problem with my new3ds with an ultra sandisk 16gb (and i even went as far as to buy a 64gb extreme one that is to arrive tomorrow) so what do i do?.
No no no silly. The themes you get from 3dsthem.es aren't in cia. That's why you need Howling Theme Tool. You choose a theme (or many) from the site and download it. Then you pack it (or several) into a single .cia. Then you instal that cia via FBI/BBM on your emunand and when you go to the themes tab on your 3ds there will be the themes you chose.
Obviously it's not downloading if it's decrypting. If it's a large file and your CPU isn't too good, it can easily take a while. Mega is still the best file hosting site out there if you just use a decent download manager.
How do i delete the save files on my game cartridges?
works fine for me using gFTP on ubuntu
that git commit increased my upload to my 3ds up to 1150KB/s which is actually tolerable now
make sure you have the ctrulib checkout from two days ago when sdmcWriteSafe() was added
EmuNAND/CtrBootManager is showing me a purple screen with "File Browser", "Netload 3dsx", etc. I don't see anything related to rxTools or Homebrew Launcher in it, which is what I'm expecting from the guide.
What did I fuck up this time?
>-Rei, mid-kid, and the rxTools team are all developing emuNAND 10.3 for New 3DS
Well, I wanted to isntall CFW and shit, but I think I'll just wait it out now. What do you guys think, how long will this take to come out?
I did, it doesn't even build otherwise. Are you on an N3DS by any chance? I ran it on my 2DS and just haven't been able to get it to work with FileZilla, even though the old version (and FTP-3DS.cia) ran fine even when self-built.
I wasn't demanding it now. More along the lines of "carry on what you've been doing"
There's a little box on the top right. Click it and type an email. If you don't have an account it'll prompt you to register.
>is there a way to install it without fbi?
if you don't have fbi.cia you need to use fbi.3dsx (after booting into pasta or equivalent)
you have a lot of options
>homebrew launcher (which can be reached many ways)
I would do both. If you get the updated nag on emuNAND there's not an easy way to remove it. On sysNAND you'd be fucked out of accessing emuNAND if you accidentally updated.
Rei and mid-kid finished yesterday, rxTools will probably take a week
>does going to homebrew menu from CTR take you to emu or sysNAND?
wherever you were previously, so from a coldboot it would be sysNAND
you want to run TinyFormat from sysNAND
>Anons It's time for shit in your pants!
NINTENDO IS COMING.
not the guy you are replying to
let me get this straight.
I have to backup the emunand folder, right? not the emunand thing
then format in the settings menu and restore the backup, am I right?
Sorry for asking, but can someone tell me how to properly copy the content of my old SD card to a new one properly?
This only makes downgrading harder right? because I've already done that
Then you might as well just install CFW. Updating to a new version of whatever CFW you use is easy.
No, you can install games that require higher firmware too. If they've been cryptofixed, they'll work right off the bat. Otherwise you can use HANS, I believe. Updates can be installed using update CIAs.
I installed a steamworld dig eur cia on my usa 3ds
it works fine but sometimes when I boot it's wrapped and it's pretty annoying
how do I fix that?
They're not the best but I've had terribly worse. If the worst they're doing is not play games with me I'll live. But yeah, sadtimes.
I'm just glad a complete retard like me managed to follow directions and is even "helping" out now. Have fun anon!
>Sorry for asking, but can someone tell me how to properly copy the content of my old SD card to a new one properly?
(read the FAQ)
Possibly. The update could take 5-10 mins, but if you start it you should be safe.
put a .png in the menuhax_manager folder and name it 'imagedisplay.png'
then from menuhax_manager (in homebrew launcher) one of the options near the bottom lets you set it
I'm doing it for some buddies, so I've already done it before. One question: What about when I have to upgrade EmuNAND? 10.4 wouldn't cause any complications there?
"An error has ocurred forcing the software to close"
Im still tired of having sat here for the last few nights trying to figure out cfw and downgrading.
Will do, looking at all the available themes some look really nice.
No, I'm running it from an o3DS. Should be the same as yours, I'm not sure why mine doesn't error. I tried a huge .cia after you posted that to make sure.
I'm running it via BootCtr -> Homebrew -> ftBrony, in case it matters somehow. I tried setting up coldboot into ftBrony but then the NIC isn't setup yet.
Maybe try another client if you have something besides filezilla?
Hey Sound, do you have any advice on downloading from MEGA? Im trying to download a 4gb game but its telling me I need megasync?? Which Im skeptical about getting
Whats this jdownloader I hear about just got cfw rxtools thanks to you
>mfw I realize they moved the N3DS SD card under the backplate specifically to make life a tiny bit more difficult for homebrewers
It's the little things.
So I won't be able to downgrade after 10.4 is out if my o3DS is already on 10.3?
>miss the part where it says to remove the SD Card before formatting
Sorry I missed that.
Just to clarify though since I'm kind of in a hurry with the browser disabling soon;
All I did was downgrade so far.
1. Do I still use that program to transfer the files? It talks about an emuNAND and as far as I'm aware I haven't set that up yet.
2. If I get menuhax on my current SD and transfer the files later on, will menuhax still work fine? Would relief some pressure of me since all I'd need to do NOW would be to get menuhax, then chill
You need to have Homebrew installed at the minimum. After that, it's just a matter of if you soft-brick, you're fucked. I still haven't seen how people are soft-bricking though, personally I've done six without anything like that happening.
thank you for the response
i tried injecting fbi using rxtools but it didnt seem to work
when i go advanced options > install fbi > emuNAND > check TMD only > it never gives me the version, just the region.
i tried all three versions that came with the rxtools download and none of them have worked. am i missing something?
should i be using the inject options? and how would i use them properly?
I use megatools to download from mega.
I just type: megadl 'urlhere'
in a terminal and it downloads it to that directory
I've never used jdownloader but it's probably fine. A lot of people here use it.
You should have a full SD backup by that point. Also you're supposed to use TinyFormat, which won't wipe your SD, and also stops your NNID from breaking.
>Do I still use that program to transfer the files? It talks about an emuNAND and as far as I'm aware I haven't set that up yet.
If you don't have an emuNAND then you just copy/paste your files to the new SD.
>If I get menuhax on my current SD and transfer the files later on, will menuhax still work fine? Would relief some pressure of me since all I'd need to do NOW would be to get menuhax, then chill
I got as far as running the sysUpdater and it started installing CIA files and then after a few files I got "An error has occurred". Now I can't boot into menuhax anymore (black screen) or the system. Am I screwed?
This is why I've been saying the other guides are shit. I keep telling everyone to use TinyFormat and it sounds like whoever doesn't use it in their guide still hasn't fixed it.
It didn't delete everything, just the Nintendo 3DS/* folder. Also, I followed both guides and saw TinyFormat, but it also said using system would work too. Just hoping my backup files will hold up.
Oh, I was running it through BootCtr -> rxMode Emu -> hblauncher_loader -> official launcher -> ftBrony. I don't even have my wireless stuff setup on SysNAND anymore (wanted to prevent accidental updates when the neighbors have their kids over). I guess I could try that though, but I figured it was broken due to everything else working fine in that same setup.
I'll give it another shot then. I'm really curious to see how big the speed boost is, 1MB/s sounds pretty nice.
I don't know about rxtools, never used it.
I used decrypt9 and this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-inject-any-app-into-health-safety-o3ds-n3ds-cfw-only.402236/ and it works
how do you EVEN fuck up this hard though
3. Launch into sysNAND with sign checks disabled (i.e. using MiniPasta or Cakes)
4. Install patched AGB_FIRM to NAND (Hit L on FBI)
5. Install all GBA cia's you want too here (Hit L again on FBI)
Can someone simplify this, I don't have FBI on SysNAND, how do I change sign checks off, what does hitting L on H&S (FBI) do?
How do I play Japanese .cia's on Cakes????
I want to try EX troopers so bad.
I'll do that. Thanks. One last question, I've had all this done for a while on my o3ds, and for some reason it looks like my Sysnand and Emunand got relinked. Every time I quit a game it boots me into Sysnand. What do I do?
