-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

>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.

VOTE UP /hbg/!
You're missing a zero on both of them titleids mate. N3DS 8.1J to 9.1J sys, never updated beyond that.
My versions are:
0004001B00010802 version 0x0
0004009B00010402 version 0x1002 (aka v4098)
Any downsides if I just install menuhax if I want to pirate a few games and DLCs? I dont want to risk my N3DS and still plan to buy a few games, so having less games to pirate isnt THAT bad for me. So far its only annoying to find legit CIAs because obviously most people just care for general CIAs.
I fucking love reinand, boots up every time so far compared to cakes. Rei is the best weebdev.
C'mon people, it's current year currently, and you are not utilizing the magical display technology on your device for some quality artwork? Get the fuck out of here, MOVE IT.

I honestly just took the time to read up on shit and memorize stuff
I remember ordering a N3DS and followed this thread/gbatemp 2 weeks prior so I could understand the lingo and tinker with shit better
Pac-Man Collection (the one with 4 pac man games, i used to love pac-man arrangement as a kid)
and The Sims Bustin out (european version, i wanna play it in dutch for childhood memories)
What do you mean? There's the optional stuff about themes and installing hbl on the emunand but nothing like most anons are talking. All in all I'm just scared of messing with it because I got it to work and I'm afraid I'll fuck up.
That's what I've been doing. Granted I've only been around for a bit so I'm still catching up.
since CHMM just doesn't fucking work for me I'm going to use howling, if I want to uninstall the themes from the .cia how do I go about doing that? How stable are the install and uninstall processes? Also I've heard that people randomly lose all their installed themes, the fuck is that about?
I voted "9.2 masterrace", but I did actually downgrade a N3DS and an O3DS from 10.3. I'll probably be downgrading another 10.3 O3DS. I would be doing a 10.2 N3DS also for a friend, but he didn't give to to me to do it, so he might be stuck in NEVER EVER land if he softbricks.
He's a faggot. He got that 3DS for Christmas, doesn't own any 3DS games (due to having a DS lite) and he still doesn't want to downgrade. Wouldn't you risk a downgrade on a console you don't even use for free games?
use it on your 3DS, it's 3d. you are not getting it crosseyes since they are reversed, if you find a stereogram online which is made for crosseye you have to flip them for 3DS because magical display technology. The sauce is this:
I was planning on photoshopping this into an imagedisplay too:

Anyone interested? I will probably take a small while now and take first to be voted on first to be worked on basis.

Cant find them on 3DSISO though so heres a converter. should have a read me explaining how to do it
Oh wait, when I inject FBI into the Health app on sysnand, to access it, I gotta boot sysNAND into Rxmode right? -THEN- I can install sysupdater.cia right?
I tried following the retard guide in the OP and my 3DS has been stuck on this screen for 10 minutes now. Note that nothing installed, it just froze on the corrupted text. I've tried hitting Y, B etc. but nothing happens. Is it safe to reboot the system?
well I dunno, NOT rebooting it does not help but kill your battery, it clearly crashed you rip the band aid and see what happened, given they do not flash native firm first you probably get away with just recovery mode, if you did not do the retard anon trick of the week and try installing N3DS files on O3DS
How do I extract savedata from my retail carts to use with cias and roms? Planning on selling a few games.
holy shit people still injecting. Fuck me.
Holy shit there is still faggots like this.
WHy not just use PASTA ninjax built temporarily install FBI to your sysnand, why not throw bigbluemenu there as well, setup your emunand witn emunand9 and be done without tedious fucking shitty injection mehtod.
Just in case you wanna listen to me anons: After you are done downgrading and BEFORE you go setting up rxtools or anything else; Do these steps:
Download FBI, set up both 3DSX and dump CIA somewhere in your SD card too, root I guess. Also get this http://www.jheberg.net/captcha/pastacfw-for-ninjhax2-90-92/ and dump that to 3DS folder in right manner.
Once you downgraded to 9.2 run any HAX payload other than menuhax (one you can boot into again from main menu without powering off your console)
First run pastaCFW. Then go back to your *hax and run FBI, install FBI cia, and viola. Reboot your system and pay attention to your titles on your main screen, if you see one more box appear and then disappear immediately, this means your cia installed to your sysnand right, from this point proceed into making an emunand and you will have FBI in your emunand, no need to inject no nothing. Like said, you could also throw bigblue menu with FBI CIA and have both in your emunand straight away.
Download FBI both HAX and CIA, download pasta CFW thing, dump all of them in your card, run pasta, run, FBI, install FBI CIA to sysnand, make emunand, has FBI now.
RxTools injection IS shit, but the Decrypt9 Injection method is actually better than the Pasta>FBI method if you've already unlinked NANDs, because otherwise you have to flash a NAND.bin backup back into sysnand and format EmuNAND all over again.
Decrypt9 method here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-inject-any-app-into-health-safety-o3ds-n3ds-cfw-only.402236/page-9
This method is WAY more consistent than the RxTools one.
Er sorry, meant to link to first post. Instructions+download on first post of that thread.
If it ever worked on any 3DS firmware ever, install dswhitelist.cia from the 3DSISO update thread
It was homemenuhax I used though. Currently trying with ironhax but it doesn't even get to the "getting CIA information" part so I guess you're right and it's the lesser alternative.
>file no longer available
Well shit. Anyone got a link?
>mfw the Monster Hunter medley.
Sure, since FBI 3DSX build works only on 9.0 or 9.2 - but this is what people SHOULD be doing when setting up instead of the injection and stuff.
Other thing you could do is to downgrade to- oh right...
Alright guys, I need some help. I'm still new to this so bear with me. I have a 10.3 N3DS, and I tried to instantly homebrew. It worked perfectly fine, and I tried to install FBI.cia and Pastacfw but they didn't work. I rebooted my 3DS and tried again. After scanning the QR code and launching, the bottom screen turns yellow, them grey, then it crashes to the home screen. I thought, hey I'll just restart this and try again. I deleted all the files on the microsd, put it back into my 3DS expecting to get the Nintendo 3DS folder, but all of the older homebrew files are in there and it won't boot. Everytime I delete the filesoff the microsd and reinsert it into my 3DS the files just reappear. I've also tried formatting my 3DS but it doesnt work. Anything guys? Halp.
Another anon here, what's wrong with the injection? II mean I did the pasta way since the guide I followed told me to do that, but when my bro was gonna setup his 2DS he used the injection way and ran into no troubles so far.
Though I assume he'll have to install the FBI/BBM CIA anyway if he updates the emunand in the future or else the injection will die right?
is the tubehax dns stuff on this guide enough to protect me from updates or should I be doing something else?
Thanks for that link m8.
>Shadowlord is in
I did not know this. And like hell i'm complaining.
Too bad about no Ultimate Weapon or Temple of Drifting Sands.
Should be EmuNAND but if not, install to SysNAND too
If you're using FBI, you should install the CIA to "NAND" by pressing L to switch "Destination" on the top screen.
If you aren't sure if you have the right .cia, you can also install bluecardfix.cia from gateway-3ds.com: it's literally the same file
If injection worked for you, great: It doesn't like to work for everyone though, and I don't know if anyone knows why, but the Pasta>FBI and Decrypt9 methods are 100% successful methods
Dunno why you would want to do that what is enough to protect you from them is ability to say "no" to the prompt that asks you to update.
"Hey wanna update now?" "No"
there, you're protected. Works for sex too!
Entering the eShop/a DLC shop will erase your theme .cia and all pirated DLC because it basically does a check against your NNID and sees serverside you haven't actually bought any of that stuff so it deletes it.
Dunno if you can or even should inject sysupdater.cia to your H&S app (it must be as big as/smaller than the H&S app.
Inject FBI first, and then use it to install sysupdater to "SD" in the nand you want to run it in (if you're updating to 9.2 on sysnand, install and run the app on sysnand. you need to be in pasta cfw/rx tools dev mode [not rxtools sysnand] or you will not be able to run the program/you will brick if it's not pasta/dev mode)
Also don't forget to hold your homemenuhax trigger to prevent it executing boot.3dsx after launching the CFW instead of letting you in your home menu
>mfw using howling instead of chmm2
holy shit this is so much more convenient and pretty
I know. Like said follow the guides some people post here but follow this for having FBI on your sysnand before making emunand (so it gets copied over to youremunand)
So in the previous thread I got told NTR CFW doesn't work on 10.3 Reinand, but this is supposedly an updated version compatible with 10.3: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cojo5h6xwcx50he/BootNTR%20%28laziness%20version%29.rar?dl=0
Does someone wanna test it out and see if it works (I'm still on rxTools 9.5).

What's the save ID of stella glow? I want to backup my save data so I can move the to undub. It's not listed on the archive. Is there something that could help me know what the save IDs are?
Thanks a bunch!
Anyway, managed to get my downgraded N3DS (10.3 to 9.2 U) back and that poster was right.
0004001B00010802 version 0x400
0004009B00010402 version 0x1402
(Matches the version another poster who downgraded reported in the thread)
Apparently, the 9.2 N3DS update files doesn't have those titles as all N3DSes have already have them preinstalled and they were not touched in 9.2. O3DS has those in their 9.2 update files since they were updated in an earlier firmware that's before N3DS (6.3 and 7.0) and the files are cumulative from all previous updates.
However, they were later updated in 9.5 and 9.6 respectively. Since the N3DS update files doesn't include preinstalled titles, EVERYONE who downgraded on N3DS to 9.2 still have those two titles stuck on their updated versions.
I'm not sure of the effects of leaving them updated, but anyone who wants to do a proper complete downgrade apparently need to get 0004001B00010802.cia and 0004009B00010402.cia from the O3DS 9.2 files (they're universal for all 3DSes and regions according to the guy in the thread ) and re-downgrade using SysUpdater in Pasta. (in theory though, haven't tried it yet since haven't set up miniPasta)
>mfw finally getting everything set up with 10.3 reinand and playing my

Dude what, I think you quoted the wrong post
Glad I could help dude.
>re-downgrade using SysUpdater in Pasta
Oh really? I'm about to test this with Julian's sysupdater, do you think that will work? (I have a 9.2U backup NAND.bin before I updated back to 10.3 and intend to install a hardmod on Monday or so)
non-XL N3DS USA
Whatever you set it to to prevent boot.3dsx from booting up on sysnand boot, because pasta will trigger homemenuhax again if you don't disable HMH with the hotkey
>rxTools installation failed
>"okay let me try that 3.0 nightly build"
>installs every time I boot it up
That's not right, is it? I already injected FBI and I'm assuming (by the rest of this tutorial) that I'm supposed to be able to get back onto the normal 3DS menu after loading rxTools, but that's not what happens. From the boot manager I can select rxTools but it then installs it again.
I think so, just add the two files to the 9.2 updates folder if you're downgrading again from 10.3. Anyone who already downgraded to 9.2 just need to rerun SysUpdater (the guy recommends the official build in minipasta which is why I mentioned it) with ONLY those two files in the folder instead.
WARNING: DO NOT USE THE TWL_NAND CIAS INCLUDED HERE ON AN N3DS! THE N3DS HAS A SEPARATE VERSION OF TWL_FIRM AND IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THESE. They likely won't brick your device (I'm not checking to see) but it won't be able to play any DS carts until you restore the proper N3DS TWL_FIRM. Only use the "DS Cart Whitelist" files on the N3DS. It should be enough to enable the blue card (but you can forget about Acekard 2i on the N3DS for now). Also, this involves modifying files on SysNAND. Make a NAND dump first, just in case something goes wrong. And be extra careful when deleting files (check the title ID at least twice).
Not to knock Flash Card Time Warp, it was a nice trick back when the only file manager available was BBM/DevMenu, which didn't give you full system access. Now that we have homebrew file manager FBI, it is possible to delete and replace system files with older versions. This makes a far more complete old DS cart enable trick possible. This one WILL work with the Acekard 2i.
First, to use these, you will need FBI Installer (BBM can't delete the current system titles so you can install the old ones). Grab it here.
Next, you will need the old versions of "DS Cart Whitelist" and "TWL_FIRM" in CIA format. Grab those here https://mega.co.nz/#!g5oF0DbR!6tvfLNqle9nS2UcQTFN4u1YOr6KiVVShkwwG-vQEWOY . (UPDATE: Whitelist "v0" added, wasn't listed, so I didn't know it was there, still don't know what FW it is).
Now, you will see two folders. "Backups Of Original Files" and "Downgrades To Enable DS Carts". I would copy both to your CIA folder on the SD card just to make sure you'll have them if you need them. Actually, between the two, they contain every version of "DS Cart Whitelist" and "TWL_FIRM" (unless 9.6 updated them, which is unlikely).
Now, with the CIAs on the SD card (preferably in a folder with a practical name like "CIA"):
1. Open FBI on SysNAND (Ninjhax, PBT, GW mode with no EmuNAND installed or EmuNAND disabled).
2. Tap R twice to enter "Title Delete" mode, and L once to enter NAND mode
3. Look for and delete the title 0004800F484E4841 (Nintendo DS Cart Whitelist), this will be one of the many "(N/A)" listings, so, step through them slowly (to delete, tap A twice then hit start).
4. (ONLY ON OLD 3DS) Look for and delete the title 0004013800000102 (TWL_NAND), this is much easier to find because it's going to be one of the CTR-P-CTAP listings
5. Tap R to return to "Install CIA" mode.
6. Enter your CIA folder and go into the "Downgrades To Enable DS Carts" folder
7. Select the highest "DS Cart Whitelist" that precedes the FW that banned your DS cart (try the 0 one, it's the oldest, but if it fails, try the closest thing to the last working version), and install (tap A twice, hit start)
8. (ONLY ON OLD 3DS) Select the highest "TWL_FIRM" that precedes the FW that banned your DS cart (if in doubt. 4.0.0-7 is probably also a good choice here if you're uncertain).
9. Restart your 3DS. Insert your old DS flash cart. If it works now, congratulations.
Yes, in keeping with tradition, I included the joke from the South Park "Underpants Gnomes" episode for the last two steps . Keep in mind you may have to play with the versions to get a working combination. Before I found out about v0 of the whitelist, I actually broke DSTwo compatibility trying to use the oldest one listed, because that's what several people recommended. Going to a 4.x version fixed it. Though now v0 also fixes it. Anyway, don't assume that just because it's the oldest, it's the best choice. That may or may not be the case, depending on your card. Since you don't have to delete to update a file though, it's probably best to start with 0, and then slowly work your way up if it doesn't work.
Oh and, if you're on 4.x and didn't already have a DS cart that works with your 3DS, don't forget to put "rop_multiloader.nds" and "rxinstaller.nds" on the microSD card so you can switch ROPs offline and without removing the SD card.
>pirating is the official way to get games
>so you have to update it the official way too!
What I understood is that if you install pirated games, you need to update with .cia and not the eshop
Just run FBI in HBL, press L to switch to NAND, press R to delete title mode and press again to load titles. (You should see a bunch of builder files in the bottom screen). Scroll all the way down to the <N/A> files. Look at the top screen and scroll down until you see title id 0x0004001B00010802 or 0x0004009B00010402. Look at the versions for those two files, if everything went okay, they should match >>128653984 and not >>128658338.
If you want to properly compare all titles, feel free to see gbatemp.net/threads/potential-reason-for-random-errors-on-n3ds-after-downgrading.410075/#post-5969080 (There're 9.0.0-20U though)
anybody got a link to rhythm tengoku plus region free?
What the fuck, I try to downgrade my n3DS, so I installed the homebrew launcher, threw the update folder and CIA files onto the root, put sysupdate into the 3ds folder and every single fucking time I launche sysupdate I get a "Failed to get CIA file info!" error. I also cant see any steps at the top like there should be. Any idea? I followed this:
guilde. No idea what I could have done wrong, because so far the steps are pisseasy.
>Whatever you set it to to prevent boot.3dsx from booting up on sysnand boot, because pasta will trigger homemenuhax again if you don't disable HMH with the hotkey
Oh I just realized I don't even have menuhax because I don't even have 9.2 yet since I'm trying to set up sysupdater to upgrade to 9.2 unless I misunderstood you?
>threw the update folder and CIA
before anyone ask, yes, the files are in the folder.
No, it seems for some this is a problem because mac alters the names, but not in my case as I use Win 8.1.
If you're running rxTools you won't need to pick between usa or eu. It'll read both. If you however are using something else I think you need an extra app.
I haven't tried it yet anon. Godspeed.
Any games for some quick fun? I dunno what to get
Anyone has that image explaining downgrade step by step but quite shortly?
The one with an eye or ball for a head or something like that. Saw it a few threads back, wanna check something.
So, i'm still on 9.2.0-20U
I got ctrboot manager autobooting to cakes, so i can go straight to emunand. and i think i'm near done. my concerns now are.
How do i update to the newest firmware on emunand? i'm following the guide but its cautioning me to have the right firmware.bat as an anon helped me with a link from a prepackaged new 3ds, i'm not sure where to look it up on my sd and how to know if it's the correct one or not before going into system settings and updating.
2nd I'm dying to give it a test run and install a cia, particularily was thinking pokemon super mystery dungeon. But all the sites i can find have shady af clickbait ads, or require you be registered. is their any better repositories out there for cias?
Is your charger plugged in?
Other than that all you can do is keep trying, the error is not because of you, sysUpdate is trying to get kernel access. It's like a roulette, you have to keep trying.
I don't know what happen but everytime when i put a SD card on a o3DS it says that write protection is enabled.
i tried with everykind of SD card but i keep getting that error. still is strange because when i put a SD card on my pc i can delete/add files normally
I am. This is how my root looks. I tried several sysupdate versions, currently Im using the julian20 one.
P R E T T Y C O O L
non-XL USA N3DS from 10.3, julian's sysupdater, FTBrony, N3DS 9.2 full pack with O3DS 9.2 Full pack's 0004001B00010802.cia and 0004009B00010402.cia merged into my downgrade pack /updates/ folder.
Reads as 9.2.0-20U in system settings, see >>128660437
If you loaded a software like cakes or rxtools to get to the menu screen of your 3DS, you're in emunand.
If you booted your 3DS and saw none of that, you're in sysnand.
If you want to be double sure, just go into homebrew and launch your CFW of choice into emunand.
So what are the advantages and disadvantages of all the CFWs so far? I don't know any of the differences between them outside of being made by different people.
all i know is that rxtools is regionfree, cakes isn't regionfree, NTR can be stacked on both to allow regionfree and out of region DLC (which rxtools can't do for some games)
and i think minipasta doesn't like AGB_FIRM when trying to run GBA games. or it might've been some other CFW, forgot
also, reiNAND and cakes are the only N3DS CFWs that can run 10.3 emunand. reiNAND is strictly N3DS
They all do roughly the same thing, but I guess they have their advantages over each other.
Gateway has .3dz loading and perfect spoofing but costs money.
rxTools has native region-free but is arguably the most buggy if you go with the most recent nightlies.
Cakes is pretty stable but needs to be used with NTR for most features.
ReiNand is simple and has 10.3 emunand on N3DS currently, but also lacks a few features.
shit forgot to even mention gateway, and i even own a card since the 4.x downgrading days lol
gateway is also closed-source and apparently likes to brick 3DSes (non-hardmod-fix-able) if they catch you using their CFW on flashcards that don't come directly from them
>Wanting to lurk to get a hold on this whole thing
>See " DON'T DELAY in getting Homebrew!"
What the fuck do I do guys?
i tried but it keeps giving me the same warning.
Besides, i tried to put another cards on the 3ds but it says the same thing.
but i can delete or add files when i put the card on the PC
>run rx e 10.3
>open close eshop
>try and boot the thing that brings up rxtools pastacfw and homebrew
what am i doing wrong
sounds like you made rxtools your SD:/boot.3dsx, and you are triggering homemenuhax every time you boot sysnand cfw, which you should hold the trigger button (or don't, depending how you config'd it) to prevent that from happening
>get someones data folder
Meaning a 3DS data folder? I've got another 3DS if that's the case.
I've tried several versions of rxtools from wherever I can find them, there was one that failed to install, the one in that post you're responding to that installed every time you booted it up, and one that installs and then gives me a black screen with a single green pixel in the lower left corner.
ok so I downgraded fine and im not trying to start any fights, but what CFW is the comfiest? all I really want to do is play FE and MHX.
Ok, guess I was just stupid/impatient. Stuff installed and now it says "rebooting in 10 seconds" since a few minutes. According to the guide I should wait for a couple of minutes. I hope it all works out now. So if nothing happens I should remove the sd card?
You set it up for 10.3. You must set it up again for 9.2 via browserhax.
If you have an o3ds, you'll be using sliderhax in your browser, which you should zoom in all the way, scroll up left, and tap the left side of the slider twice
this can be a pain in the ass, though: this sliderhax thing isn't as stable as the 10.3 one is...
Lets say I download Super Smash Bros and install it. If I uninstall it down the line to make space on my SD card, then reinstall it, will my saves be where I left them, or does uninstalling the title also delete the saves?
Guys I need some help, when I boot my n3ds and press A I get into the home menu, 9.2 and no CFW (I'm trying to set reinand up). And then when I boot and don't press any button, ctrbootmanager shows up and tells me it didn't find any boot.cfg even though I do have one on my sdcard. And when I try to access menuhax through qrcode it simply reboots my 3ds and goes back to ctrbootmanager.
I believe I installed menuhax on emunand but I don't know how to delete it, help.
But I'm a retard owning the n3DS and idk what 1/2 of the shit everyone's talking about is and there's no terminology guide.. How urgent is this? I get the downgrading party fine but after that it's just ...What?
you'd unlink your nands anyway. install TWL_FIRM_patched on both SysNAND and EmuNAND (run FBI in each NAND, install to "NAND") and install the game to SD for both NANDs too.
For O3DS this is the case, but N3DS is kind of weird. see >>128659780
I'm following the retards guide and I wanted to install HBL app on emuNAND but
7) You will get a gift, it will be the Homebrew Launcher Loader
8) Open the Homebrew Launcher Loader and hold Y
9) If you've followed this guide, it will load into CTRBootManager, to fix this, turn off the 3DS and put the SD card into your PC
Whenever I open the app and press Y I just get an error and nothing else happens. What did I fuck up?
Okay, downgraded from 10.3 to 9.2 and installed homebrow launcher again, guess now comes the hard part is installing cfw less risky?
If you don't have a boot.3dsx on root, the screen will turn red. Double-check that you followed the guide properly if this is the case.
Run pastacfw (hold homemenuhax trigger button to prevent it booting boot.3dsx again) and use browserhax to HBL>FBI.3dsx to install FBI.cia to "SD"
Reboot, pastacfw, prevent homemenuhax, run FBI.cia and install TWL_FIRM to NAND
see >>128664561 and also:
You also need to run Menuhax_Manager again, then install the image from SD
btw have a pic thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/menuhax-2-0-custom-main-screen-images.401528/
>launcher runs download play
>RX-E 10.3 is my nand
>ver 9.2 is my sysnand
how far do i have to go back to recover from all this? everything is so backwards. do i just wipe my sdcard? i honestly dont know what to do.
The downgrade is more or less trial and error until it decides to work. The instructions for cfw after that should work as intended granted you are using the correct files and methods for your system.
It seems I need to format system memory to set up my NNID on my emunand, is it safe after I already downgraded? Because I did and got told just now that I need to do this NNID shit. All I did so far was downgradinga n dinstalling homebrew launcher.
Got reinand working on my n3ds
Now I think I need to update it (it's 9.2 right now)
I expect updating via the setting will fuck up something or is it safe
also I want to install games, do I need the "legit" CIA or any is fine?
>got N3DS 10.3 working with ReiNand
>thought that I could now do a data transfer for my NNID and stuff
>notices too late that it will delete the stuff on my sd card
now I have to download and install all games again
luckily I didn't get too far on them
help me decide /hbg/
Everytime I boot cfw it makes me unwrap my games like when I first install them. Is there a way to stop this?
I played all M&L games except for paper jam, have FF6 and Bravely already, as for Phantasia, shouldnt i just egt the GBA version since Snes emulation on 3ds is still pretty shit
>but is arguably the most buggy if you go with the most recent nightlies
I used the one in the "Autobooting rxTools 3.0" pastebin and had no problems so far, so that's a good nightly?
Changed my default theme to black in EmuNAND 10.3 and now I can't boot into sysnand or emunand
What happened? I read that I was able to freely change my emunand theme because menuhax is only installed on sysnand
Honestly Gateway is still really solid. The ability to drag and drop games and still has a better boot chance than most CFW and you can use it with CTRbootmanager.
Gateway is still pretty awesome. But no 10.3 so Reinand here I come!
Just take your sd card out and go to your sysnand and format your system in the settings.
I've been looking for this for a while, fuck 3dsiso.
Here's labyrinth katana (with the english patch) if anyone's looking for it. Tested and works.
I'm assuming I'm unlinked because whenever I install a .cia on emunand, it won't appear on the sysnand or is this wrong?
I have a nand.bin stored in my pc along with a Nintendo 3ds folder containing dbs etc
I want to change a theme in emunand but whenever I do that chmm it still messes with sysnand and I lose menuhax....
So i copied over the cakes pack from the guide before formatting using tiny format.
When i go into the homebrew menu it automaticall boots into cakes. I only made backups of sysnand.bin and emunand.bin
How do i fix this shit?
Yeah, don't use CHMM
Do this instead.
>Pick your theme
>copy all the files in the theme folder except for the .txt
>paste them in the menuhaxmanager folder that is in the 3ds folder

yo, I'm not the one who compiled this list but since so many people have been looking for days for "x" game that I seem to have in here I'll just post it every thread until it makes it into the OP. The following contains various links gathered from /hbg/ during the last week.
Have fun /hbg/
I downloaded this one and doesn't pop up to install with FBI am I supposed to use another app? also I installed DLC using this and shows up in emunand fine but my cart won't detect it, YES its same region Is it normal for sysnand to not share the stuff emunand has? because it doesn't show up there
>Is it normal for sysnand to not share the stuff emunand has?
For the life of me, i cant find games anywhere, and i dont have the brainpower left after spending all night setting this little fucker up.
any kind anon willing to point me in the direction of an adless/registrationless/premium scamless link for pokemon super mystery dungeon so i can see if it installs and is playable so i can rest easy. All the sites i've found advertising games are shady as fuck/arent cia files (which i'll look into convertin when i've had some sleep)
Got my N3DS to 9.2, did a system format and Im about to install a CFW. So... reinand or rxtools? Can I freely switch between these two in case Nintendo puts out a new OFW?
should be US. i was able to install and run just fine using FBI on rxtools... this is the only .cia in my folder that doesn't have the original region in the filename, so i'm not 100% certain, sorry.
Super strange, because I just checked emuNAND and I didn't even have a theme profile created yet, even though I use the themehack for SysNAND. Maybe my system goofed up last night and just didn't save positions, I dunno.
Cool, I always had the feeling in 4U that using a hammer is like a poor mans GS damage wise.
Sorry if this had been asked before: Do I have to install the update before or after the game? Or does it not matter
Install the update after you install the game.
It's more than likely.
Your brother is a retard though.
STOP GIVING MISINFORMATION, FAGGOT
>Does the 1.1 update revert the translation?
No. If you install a prepatched 1.0 cia and install the 1.1 update the translation will be kept intact. NTR isn't affected either, just use the 1.1 download link.
what other game should i get?
senran kagura burst and 2
metal gear solid snake eater
any goot rhythm games besides theater since i already have it?
how's bravely default?
The main reason to buy sky3ds/gateway?
it installs safemode cias first (the recovery mode shit), then it installs normalmode ones once those are done, then it patches native_firm last
if it failed after patching like one or two cias, it failed patching safemode cias, so technically your recovery mode is broken but the rest of your system will still work so you can just keep trying it again. if it fails later in the process, your normal mode will be broken but recovery mode will work so you can just update.
Well, GW is great for ease of use. It's the most simple shit to set up and you'll be playing games in minutes thanks to the drag and drop nature. The spoofing is the best of all CFWs, so no need for crytofixing or worrying about regions. Plus you get two SD cards to store stuff on. And there's cheats if you like that shit.
Sky3DS is literally obsolete though.
Then there's CFW if you like your shit for free with some minor extra hassle.
>Sky3DS is literally obsolete though.
Sky3DS can run Cubic Ninja on Japanese systems, which is usually cheaper than buying a JPN copy of Cubic Ninja. That is it's one and only obscure purpose as of 2016.
omfg, are you dense?
From http://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-mhx-translation-patch-eng.403613/ :
>Does the 1.1 update revert the translation?
No. If you install a prepatched 1.0 cia and install the 1.1 update the translation will be kept intact. NTR isn't affected either, just use the 1.1 download link.
>Does the order of installation matter?
No, install cia's in any order.
Don't use the Homebrew Manager CHMM. It installs themes to Sysnand and kills menuhax.
Download the CHMM2 CIA, load it into emunand with FBI, then load it it from there.
If you get the issue where you change themes but it doesn't actually change, go to your regular 3DS theme manager in emunand and set up theme rotation thing. You'll get a popup about writing something to SD card. Now use CHMM2 to change themes and it should work.
I overclocked my CPU on my 3DS and it still won't let me play Xenoblade Chronicles on my 3DS. Here I was hoping that somehow it would allow XC to be played on the O3DS. Anyone know it there will be a fix for this later?
Why the hell is mega slow as fuck for me today.
I'm pretty sure updates and DLC only work for their target title ID, and since regions of the same game have different IDs, they probably won't work. I could be wrong, though. I haven't tested it or anything.
Oops should have refreshed before posting >>128670114
I did just that I installed the chmm cia and all went well. I was even able to swap themes just fine and didn't do that rotation thing....however when I change my theme on emu and using chmm.cia program it kills menuhax
I was looking into that menuhax theme but can't find much on it unlessbim searching it wrong
Why does crtbootmanager do this when I try to load pastaCFW?
>implying there is THAT much of a difference
Come on man, it's hardly any better and you know it. Of course it won't be as good as n3ds, but it will be better than literally nothing.
here's DS2:RB https://mega.nz/#!mJ1UnDKY!DvKuuovfSrX_KLUBbLSV1UoY24PwS3FeVioNRsmrlr0
The other one is hidden, so you can only update via the eshop prompt, you can't search for it afaik.
Fuck me ignore me. Im sorry It does work, Im just fucking stupid.
>Donwload retroarch gba cia
>open a gba game
Then the game crashes and my 3ds reboots. What gives?
Okay I didn't have eshop access but I remembered that I've done that tubehax dns thingy so I'll switch it back. But just to clarify, If I'm able to start the eshop app it's safe to update my games?
Thank you kind people, now I am homebrewing and playing homebrewed games from homebrewers, and installing them very slowly. I can finally relax.
Until I need to optimize/configure autoloading/dns block/brick-proof in the future but we'll get there eventually.
when i try to boot MHX i get an eternal black screen. can anyone help?
running rxtools. emunand is fully updated and i am using this method to launch japanese games.

Well the guide says
>While at the moment you could do that by just going into System Settings and updating there, you will not be able to once 10.4 drops, which can't be far from now as Nintendo is probably going to fix the new exploits very soon. So we'll do it with sysupdater, as that will also work later on.
I don't know what to do.
>Not just editing CTRBootManager so it loads a completely different .3dsx, while leaving boot.3dsx alone so you can install the Homebrew Launcher as a .cia and still use it without fucking everything up.
I just posted this miniguide elsewhere, but it may help people here...
This requires you to have a CLEAN (ie nag-less) SYSNAND)
If you want to remove the update nag from your n3ds emunand:
>1. Make a backup of your EMUNAND first.
>2. Go into homebrew launcher/however you load up homebrew and load Decrypt9WIP by pressing 'A'
>3. Choose SYSNAND options
>4. Choose 'File dump...'
>5. Choose 'dump import.db'
when that's done, hit b until you're at the main menu, and choose 'emunand options'
>6. Choose 'File inject...'
>7. Choose 'Inject import.db'
>8. When that is finished, hit start.
Again, you must have put the system into sleep mode (while still connected to an access point) to get the nag. If you plan to EVER get on the internet, use a DNS blocking method.
I also recommend keeping a backup of both the import.db and a NAG-LESS current emunand, so that if this happens again, you have multiple options of restoring.
>just updated Majoras Mask
>themes disappeared and disappear on reboot when reinstalled
Take the SD card out to work around fucked up Menuhax, put it back in after turning it on and set your theme to nothing. If that's not it you probably updated with files for the wrong 3DS and you're staring at a nice paperweight.
Oh man I recently upgraded to a new 3DS and played some MH4U. It almost felt like an entire new game. Havent looked into actual framerate but n3DS was so smooth holy shit.
And those loading times.
Button positioning on old 3DS XL was superior though

It's like I'm playing with fucking children or something
So I was wondering concerning the Beyond the Labyrinth translation, if I were to use NTR and the language plugin would I be able to have the party character names be visible?
It isn't a huge issue but it's a bit of an OCD annoyance
Which program(s)/guides did /hbg/ use to transfer emuNAND to another microSD card?
3DS Multi-NAND Creator?
emuNAND 9? (unfortunately not an option for me as i don't have enough space)
This guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-transfer-emunand-to-another-sd-card-working-on-new3ds.383684/
I've heard pro's and con's about each of these methods so i would like the most retard friendly method. Thanks in advance
So after I inject the FBI thing or whatever I should be able to reboot into the homescreen after selecting RXtools?

>mfw the lag is so bad i can't play at all
>just play with friends
Do you have update 2.1 installed? I got the .cia and the update.cia from mega3dsroms (that br blogspot) and it works fine.
>Howling Theme Tool
I've seen nothing but probems with this shit. Just use CHMM2, it works more than fine and has an inbuilt theme downloader.
>just rebooted to do this
>suddenly works again
Shit son, I've got a lot to learn don't I?
>visiting the eShop by accident will fuck your .cias
i've heard about some visual bug with "rx" in the firmware disappearing. I mean if that was the only thing wrong i wouldn't mind but i just don't want my 3DS acting funny because of something in the future.
>implying I could ever show my face here again when I'm too slow to keep up with you
t-that's ok, thanks
only fucks DLC right? I don't know about howling tool
My copy, I got it a couple days ago so I assume it's not out of date by now
using JDownloader 2?
Is there a work around for getting HANs to load DLC when booting a Japanese cartridge on a US n3ds? Or just some way to get to the Japanese eshop to get dlc? I don't know what I'm doing. All I have is menuhax
I am deeply sorry.
decrypt9 injection and gateway ultra launcher arent working for me
whenever i run decrypt9 in emuNAND it sends me back to rxTools. so i backed up/injected using sysNAND. when i open h&s in either NAND, the normal h&s comes up instead of BBM.
an anon in a past thread said to restore my NAND.bin backup to relink. but when i go to the gateway site and press launcher.bat i sit on the launching screen.
can any anon help me out here? i'm trying to install a cia installer
