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/2DS and N3DS both support up to 10.3 emunand (for N3DS see pastebin for details)
DOWNGRADING: http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 • http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW • http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
-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.
-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.
-yellows8 has released a browser exploit that plays MP4s: https://github.com/yellows8/wiiu_browserhax_fright
-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
What do i need to format y sd after making emunand? i wanna start all over again because a friend fucked up my installation. But after formating with windows I still notice it to be 2gb smaller than what is supposed to be.
Also, is it true that i can't inject fbi to health and safety app on new 3ds? How can I get around that?
I have a Japanese Char Custom 3DS on FW 7, do I need to upgrade to 10.3 and then downgrade to 9.2, or can I run browserhax, install menuhax, and make an emunand and stuff on the FW I have? since it's a rare model, I'd rather not deal with the upgrading and downgrading on the chance of fucking it up
theres nothing advanced about it. someone needs to replace that shit. its as simple as replacing files and updating via system settings. Whoever made that pastebin is a faggot
its fine and works well. the only thing that doesnt work is NTR
Weird thing happened today when l installed that final fantasy rhythm game. BBM imported it with no problem but it was on the home menu when l was done (l did uninstall it from Data Managment tho) What gives?
What would happen if you accidentally installed a cia file that you previously installed? Would it make a second copy or would it overwrite the previous one?
I'm using howling theme tool and I'm wondering what would happen if I installed the same themes twice by accident.
>want to install cfw on PS3
>buy a downgrade service on ebay
>spend about 70$ all together for the service and to ship it
>get console back after a week
>disc drive broken
>paying someone to do your dirty work for you
>getting shitty service
pretty sure you can update just using the default updater, wouldn't recommend it though just do sysupdater with the correct firmware that way you get used to do it properly
You should be able to, use FBI itself to delete 'em
You shouldn't need to inject it to health safety, use big blue menu also, the 2gb is your emunand you can use minipartition wizard tool for that takes a while though
lel, there is no safe way but I can assure you most way people fuck up are
>Not reading guide
>Not charging 3ds while doing shit
>installing wrong firmware,etc shit that guide states already
For what reason fampai? with about the same price for a PS3 you can play it on PC except exclusives
Nice samefag, can you end yourself or put a trip? seriously there shouldn't be any reason for this much shitposting unless all the normal people already left thanks to you faggots, don't mind me I'm just hiding all this faggotry but sad to see so much hidden replys
it would give you a signature error or whatever and not install. because I've tried what you've described before. I had smash dlc.cia installed and tried to install again and it just gave me and error and wouldnt install
sorry if i sound a little retarded here, but the link only drops the cfw and the ROP, no a fuckin tuto or something, i really need a tuto because engrish is my second laguaje, if you can explain me like a retard i would apreciate it annon
I don't have the skillset. Downgrading NAND on PS3 requires soldering down a Progskeet to the board. This fucker better buy me replacements because he did put a warranty sticker on my console but I ain't sending that shit back.
oh look, a tripfag calling out faggotry by requesting people use a trip. its an ironic universe collapsing upon itself
>*It wasnt on the home menu
>no tuto or something
because it isn't needed. literally drag the files onto the sd card then launch cfw using whatever method you use. once its launced go to system settings and choose update
I've downloaded and installed a DLC cia on Big Blue. Even when it says it's installed successfully, and I can see it as add on content in Settings, it does not show up in the game at all. Anyone able to help?
I've been looking everywhere but I can't find it, anyone have a fairune cia?
m8 its right fucking there. choose whichever cfw you want, launch it then go to system settings and update
Whomever here is a newbie I recommend you to stop coming here for the time being since It's been invaded by faggots which is always the case but the ratio now is bigger than people trying to help
I recommend Reddit as much as I dislike the site, there are some subs you can refer to if you really are struggling and look up guides on google you'll come across them
One way you can tell the threads are going to shit is when there's nothing but avatarfags obsessing over how they already finished what everyone else is going to do
Just keep em off your 3ds they're just installers
FBI blows, try different apps like bigblue
Accidentally posted in last thread without seeing the new thread
I'm the one asking how to unlink nands without touching sysnand because I purchased stuff from eshop
Hey if you're still here don't mind telling me how to do that clone thing
I'm assuming cloning sys to nand is the same as unlinking them?
EVERY GUIDE suggests formatting sysnand which I guess they assume people pirating didn't buyshit from the eshop
I just want sysnand untouched
Well, when the app makes the emunand it automatically clones your sysnand to it. That's why after this everyone ends up with linked nands. Unlinking means formatting either of them so they'll be independent. Formatting the sysnand is the best because all your fun will be done in emunand anyway.
Shut the fuck Pablo you fucking spic
At least these trips return to the threads to help people out. unlike all the damn Pedro's juans and hue hue trash that repeatedly ask the same fucking questions
What themes are everyone using here?
Here's the ones I have set to shuffle right now.
anyone know if the bravely dafult from this thread works?
If you've got it watching your clipboard, you should be able to just copy the links. It might trip up if the hue faggot chains a bunch of those ad-filled redirection services, though. But if you go through them manually, you'll can just copy the mega link.
Yes you can
>use big blue menu
But don't I need fbi to install it? then again, why wouldn't I need to do that? installing it to the sysnand and then creating emunand did not work
well i think it didn't work, now i have a bricked emunand
>You can also use an official nintendo tool for that
Oh yeah, I think I heard of something like this
But I would need a .cia for that tool though, cuz I cannot access the shop
Whats it called?
I remember a long time ago I read about a program that let you Streetpass with people online. I need some more Streetpasses for my Bravery Default village. Anyone know the name or have a link?
Another requested theme.
One more to go.
>One of those is mine
Hide and ignore the blatant niggers trying to get replies of out mate, remember how this is place is if someone really gets upset I'm trying to help and put a trip on top it they have autism which I do not care for
You should, there's no reason why FBI shouldn't have problem installing things other than games and DLC unless you changed something or have something corrupted
Dude seriously, do not reply to third worlders trying to be niggers just hide for the best
There's a reason those countries are the way they are
You should've had the file already before you completed emunand, then launch CFW of your choice and if done correctly should show up in emunand and FBI wrapped as a gift
Just ordered a r4i for my n3DS CFW
Any worthwhile kickass DS homebrew?
>You should, there's no reason why FBI shouldn't have problem installing things other than games and DLC unless you changed something or have something corrupted
What I mean is that I can't get to see FBI at all.
Just install CFW via the guide on gbatemp. You don't need the Homebrew Launcher at all, all you need is a working browser.
The homebrew way is slightly easier but not available to you unless you get a 9.x nippon cart and I don't think there even are any (it was a huge problem for the 8.1 N3DS).
I actually left a message for you in another thread. Love the theme--I switched the BGM though, I'm using Ballad of the Turnabout Sisters instead.
How exactly did you estimate the gap between screens for splitting the image?
What's so experimental about 10.3 on N3DS? Is it unsafe?
put this in the center
Guys i have a question... i have to update my smash that is a .cia US game and the eshop gives me an error... what can i do? i must install all the update versions or the last will be?...
I have a N3DS as well and this happened to me, redownload files if must, copy and paste again sometimes it works and doesn't no reason it shouldn't work after a few tries
Street Fighter IV
DLC Pack 5(US)
Did Nintendo put out a fix to stop the old eShop downloader from working?
My SD card corrupted when creating an emuNAND partition so I need to redownload it, but I get an error on the download screen.
Is there any reason to go further than menuhax if I only plan on developing my own homebrew applications?
Guys NTR isnt working for me. Im on EumNand 10.3 and i just wanna play my dlc for Taiko.
It says firmware isnt supported and it wont work. I installed NTR from the CIA and i have the bin on the root so i dont know what the problem is.
I just want taiko guys
How do I get into Homebrew Launcher on Emunand? Whenever I try to use the loader from the Emunand home menu it just brings me right into the boot manager, which brings me to the homebrew launcher for sysnand instead.
I have to ask. I have to install all previous updates or installing the 1.1.3 that's enough?
There are tons of cheap ones at Micro Center.
You were supposed to install it before making an emuNAND: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
>use homebrew FBI to install FBI.cia
>it will have FBI on it
Most things don't need to be redone. What did you screw up?
There's still a couple weeks before he has to turn in his work
Yellow? Do you mean purple? Not being able to select a different thing sounds like a fuckup, and I'd just try it again.
I just used my cakepack to setup two systems yesterday.
No. Downgrading doesn't need to be redone. What did you fuck up?
emuNAND is a copy of sysNAND so as long as it's on sysNAND you just create your emuNAND and you're good
http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji check near top
it shows for reasons besides emuNAND, though, so this could be inaccurate
>is the one in the starter pack up to date?
you should be able to get some CFW running. I would download
>firmware files for 9.2 (see my guide for link: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji)
then run miniPasta and then sysUpdater and update to 9.2
I think you can use spiderhax as an entrypoint to either miniPasta or PastaCFW, but can't remember and don't have a 3DS on old enough firmware to test.
Whoever updates the guide in your pic related should change the 105 in the url to 108, it gets rid of the need for slot0x25KeyX.bin
Just get the update file separately.
Hey, iamevn if you're still around. I'm trying to make the .cia, but I get pic related.
im on the O3DS and its saying firmware not supported. am i doing something wrong? ntr should be the easiest thing to install right? Bin in root. Cia in whatever. install CIA through FBI or BBM. done deal. so whats the problem?
just installing 1.1.3 is enough
Best Buy had a thing going where 64GB cards were like $15 no idea if its still going on
well obviously. all launchers use the boot.3dsx file and your boot.3dsx file is the ctrbootmanager one
why do you need homebrew launcher in emunand anyway?
My New 128gb Micro SD Card today, how can I format it to a Fat32 and move my stuff onto it? I heard EmuNand puts hidden stuff on your SD Card.
Anyone else have menuhax SOMETIMES fail to launch?
After unlinking my nands, sometimes when holding L while booting I get stuck on the yellow screen instead of opening menuhax. Sometimes it works fine. Did I fuck something up or is this normal.
THANKS im going to install it.... sorry about the questions im a little noob in this .cia things
I'll just quote what I said towards him last thread:
>Sure. You could also just grab https://github.com/profi200/Project_CTR if you'd rather do it yourself. Just need to remove ExeFs, PlainRegion and the Rom sections from the .rsf to get it to work with that version.
The .rsf format has changed a little over time and there's a million makerom builds floating around, each of which has different requirements. It's actually kind of obnoxious. The one maintained in profi200's Project_CTR is the best one as far as I'm concerned.
Bumping with a picture so someone might actually see my post in the flood
Anyone have the 1.1 patch CIA for Devil Survivor Overclocked I'd be very very grateful.
>EVERY GUIDE suggests formatting sysnand which I guess they assume people pirating didn't buyshit from the eshop
emuNAND is cloned from sysNAND, all your bought shit will be in emuNAND, my SMT IV with save were still there why wouldn't I format sysNAND?
I'm really really sorry.
I replied to your earlier post with a link to the update itself. If you want the DLC and base game as well, here:
I'm not sure why anyone is calling it experimental. Can't speak for reiNAND, but myself and 3 or so others thoroughly tested Cakes support for it for a good hour before a nightly was released. Should be good to go.
You should just need a .cia of the most recent update.
>which brings me to the homebrew launcher for sysnand instead.
no it doesn't, that's the emuNAND homebrew launcher
The NAND you were in previously is the one you're in after launching:
Why do you people need an indicator? Just remember where you were 5 seconds before and you're still there. Just keep in mind leaving system settings or homebrew launcher restarts the 3DS.
Yep. I'm still trying to 100% them all but did most of the major things in all but the fishing one. I'm down to the final achievement on Warrior's Way and then I'm tossing it in the vault. Still have a few more flowers to grow, have to beat arcade mode on Mii Force, and do stupid hard shit in the Zombie one. They take so much time.
If you get an older payload for hax2.1 instead of 2.5 your bootrate will improve
Guys i dont understand what the problem is. Im on O3DS. I put the bin in the root and i installed the Cia but when i press NTR on the menu it says firmware not supported the fuck.
any help at all would be great
I've read it, yes. If you want to see what it does, see https://github.com/javimadgit/TinyFormat/blob/master/source/main.c
Just use the system settings thing to format desu. Remember to take SD card out first.
that actually sounds really fucking cool kek. make your own eshop app where all games are free. I imagine it would require you own server though and is probably way too ambitious of a project
Yes. If you truly want to format EmuNAND, go for it. But here's why you're doing something retarded:
1. Given that you want to maintain CFW/EmuNAND access, your SysNAND is stuck at 9.2 forever.
2. Because of that, you can't get into the eShop without really silly hacks that have a potential of bricking if you don't do them right.
3. Because of that, you can't update your legimately bought games unless you download pirate update .cias, which will require you to use CFW to play the games afterwards.
4. Because of being stuck at 9.2, games and games with updates that require higher versions won't work. And that's just about everything released in 2015 and onwards.
But yes, if you install TinyFormat in EmuNAND, it will format EmuNAND and keep all of your shit intact on SysNAND. Just keep in mind that you're making a mistake.
I'm not sure if this is a problem people run into. I've tried to update my n3ds firmware using cakes.
I'll load cakes, it'll say it's configuring the home menu, it restarts and boots into cakes again, and the stream goes red. I'm 100% positive I'm in the right firmware now
Anything else I should try before I salvage this by restorting my emunand?
Well i know where to get free server hosting and domains. It would only be a downloader so people would still install with bigbluemenu or fbi.
Pretty sure i could just steal the code from someone elses program.
So I keep my nnid and purchased things by using that method of formatting through system settings?
I go into rxtools and enter system settings to format and remove the sd right?
Actually, it installs but doesn't appear on the home menu. Launching from FBI works.
You need a newer version of cakes, I think. The one on the cakepack from pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji is the most up-to-date.
New 3DS or Old?
Step 7 in part C of the retard guide is telling me to open emunand9 after opening the homebrew launcher. I'm not seeing it in the menu. Sorry for being stupid, please help
>>Just use the system settings thing to format desu. Remember to take SD card out first.
This fucks up NNID. Stop telling people to do this.
it's safe from emuNAND and/or if you're unlinked
Yes to both questions.
If it doesn't appear on home but works otherwise then it's usually a region issue. The one I (the anon) built yesterday definitely installs fine for me. Are you on rxTools?
I wouldn't be surprised if the .rsf was actually fucked in that regard, I think it was copy-pasted from somewhere else and I don't know what region flags makerom uses by default.
Does this guide work for n3DS as well? the writer says it works for o3DS and hasn't tried it on n3DS
Also, how big are 3DS games? I have a 16gb card but if it's not big enough I was going to get a new SD card before I tried hacking
Anyone use EmuNAND Tool do transfer emuNAND to a new microSD card with no trouble?
I hear something about using 2 versions or some such, 1.03 for extracting and 1.01 for injecting if i recall correctly?
So l'm gonna ask again in case somebody knows whats up:
>download gba emulator
>install the cia
>open gba rom
l donwloaded the gba bios but l dont know where to put it. And another thing, some anon told me you can just get gba cias and install them... was he memeing?
Okay, finally done with downgrading and installing CFW. Big thanks to everyone who was helping me out here. I still have one last question though: I have a fresh Reinand install and the stuff I needed to get CFW working in the first place. What do I need just to pirate stuff for now? I though I just throw my CIA files on the SD and install them via FBI on my emunand. But I keep hearing about bigblue and stuff, so I guess there are a bunch of programs I should install before jumping into filling my backlog?
It's just a matter of reading before doing something, it's soldering not a medical procedure.
Anyway you shouldn't need the disc drive, with Cobra you get full compatibility even without a disc inserted
Still fucking shitty of the guy you paid
>emuNAND is always safe
>if NANDs are unlinked, sysNAND is also safe, otherwise sysNAND is NOT safe
is this more clear?
Julian's and Tux's are both fine. I'd say use Julian's, but both have downgraded multiple machines for me with no issues. Julian's is just theoretically safer.
I did this a few months ago but can't remember where it goes. Probably just the root of the SD card, if not in the same folder as the emulator
>can just get gba cias and install them
yes that is correct, it's the way to get the best performance as well
what you didn't hear(or remember maybe) is that it's slightly more difficult than that
you'll need to install them to both NANDs if you're unlinked, also you'll need AGBFirm
FBI works fine. BigBlueMenu is another CIA manager. DevMenu is another one on top of that. Having more than one in case one fails to install something is nice, but personally I've found FBI handles everything I throw at it fine. I think if you injected it, it can have trouble with certain things (allegedly, I don't use injected FBI)
If you're trying to DL from Mega then just use megadl from megatools
Sure, but not in a noticeable way for most. I keep both around and never end up having to resort to BigBlueMenu. I default to FBI due to the network install option. I've got all the .cia files I download on a file server in my basement and I can use sockfile over ssh to just beam .cias to any 3DS on the network.
>I can get it on my sysnand but not transfered to emunand.Reply to Thread
You're supposed to get it on sysNAND before you make emuNAND, since emuNAND is an exact copy of sysNAND.
>some anon told me you can just get gba cias and install them... was he memeing?
There are injected versions of gba games doing the rounds, yeah. They're the best option for playing GBA games on a o3ds because you're never going to get decent speeds with emulators on it.
You put them into /retroarch/cores/system
Did you not read the whole OP on the RetroArch thread or soemthing? It says where to put the bios of those cores who needs them.
The error on the emulator also tells you, but it might have gone by too fast to see.
Also, there are GBA .cias, but if you're on an N3DS you're better off using gpSP.
Get FBI for your homebrew launcher, and install FBI.cia to your SD from sysNAND.
When I try to load HomeBrewMenu from MenuHax I get red and black screens.
I tried follow the guide from the top comment here to fix this but I don't exactly understand what it's telling me to do.
Anyone want to help a retard?
SO I HAVE A QUESTION
I have my 3ds and my brothers 3DSXL. He got a new 3DS and doesn't use his old 3dsXL anymore. Is there a way that I can migrate my shit easily between the two with mods or what?
I don't think I'm conveying this correct but tl;dr should I move up to the XL and how long/will it take/how easy is it?
Apparently that shit's in the banner and it defaults to being valid in no regions. The 3DS-format banner also isn't included in the repository, so you absolutely need bannertool to get a working build, I suppose.
Shilling my themes.
You can only see the NSFW themes if you're logged in or get them from my MEGA.
Shit thanks for the info anon really appreciate it
So I should follow the retards guide on unlinking then right
>This fucks up NNID
Shit I want to avoid fucking anything up what should I do?
Thanks guys. I stick with FBI then. Time to find some european CIAs then. Kinda hard to find stuff though, all I want is Theatrhythm and FE Awakening. Fuck all the DLC these games have, its the only reason I pirate it and never bought them actually. As long as Nintendo doesnt make a proper account system and Eshop I will stick with CFW and keep pirating anything digital only or thats full with DLC.
>Shit I want to avoid fucking anything up what should I do?
Just use TinyFormat. Preferably on sysNAND. You'll have to run it through Pasta.
it's in my guide: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
If you use the official Nintendo system format thing to format any NAND with an NNID linked, it will unregister the NNID from the system. The other NAND will then think an NNID is linked, but it actually isn't, so you end up with eShop errors.
Using TinyFormat works around this by just skipping the whole NNID unlinking thing. It also keeps your SD Nintendo 3DS folder intact, which is good because the NAND you're not formatting will make use of that data.
So: TinyFormat. On SysNAND. Everything you legitimately bought will still be in your EmuNAND, and so will your NNID. If you ever decide you don't like CFW, you clone your EmuNAND to SysNAND and that's that (no going back from that without a hardware mod though).
Yeah thanks man. this worked. Turns out i was using version 3.0 instead of 3.2.
anyways worked like a charm man. thanks for the help
this one is uncensored with all costumes
No, you have to use the official Nintendo feature called system transfer. This updates each system to latest, so I'm saying you should setup an emuNAND on both systems before you do it.
Nintendo 3ds System Settings Theme
Anyone have the update for Devil Survivor Overclocked for the US region? I found the EU version, but I can't use it because I'm using the US version of the game.
No idea. A lot of people were anticipating an update on monday, hence the sudden rash of these sorts of topics. No one knows when the update will happen and what it'll fix, so everyone's in the same boat.
It didnt work senpai :/
>Did you not read the whole OP on the RetroArch thread or soemthing?
There was/is a RetroArch thread?
>Also, there are GBA .cias, but if you're on an N3DS you're better off using gpSP.
O3DS. So l just google for those GBA CIAs or do l have to do some tech savvy faggotry?
HOLY FUCK YES.
So guys, I want to get a patched version of FE Fates and it just finished downgrading. Can someone tell me where to get FE:Fates?
You should have plenty of room for just those on the 16GB.
>if you're on an N3DS you're better off using gpSP.
Yes to both (assuming you have eshop access)
I have a translated FE:If .cia but I don't think it's the most up to date one so I won't bother uploading it for you. I'm guessing /feg/ has what you need.
It definitely runs faster.
Yeah, basically. You need to get files on there somehow. I think if you have an N3DS and are on Windows there's some sort of built-in FTP utility you could use, though.
Did you inject FBI into H&S? Trying to figure out why some people have FBI issues.
I'll check out your guide thanks
Got it thanks man
So if I got this right, it's not too late to do this even after I have added rxtools and updated to rx 10.3
What do you mean by there's no going back
I didn't do this.
So what's my situation? I have everything working, the two nands are delinked, emunand is on 10.3 and the sysnand is on 9.2, and I can install and play games. The only issue is that I need to link my NNID to my emunand. How do I do that?
Also sucks because I didn't realize I'd lose out of my games, although they were mainly just Club Nintendo games.
My bad, I assumed you got the core from the Retroarch thread over at gbaTemp.
Shouldn't have been so quick to assume so. I apologize. As you'll see if you read on the forum, the correct name for the file should be gba_bios.bin
The .cias are available on a thread over at 3dsiso.com, but you'll still need to install a patched AGB_FIRM, both on your sysNAND and emuNAND, and the GBA .cias to your SD from both sysNAND and emuNAND, if you plan to play from emuNAND. If you don't mind booting up sysNAND to play your GBA games, then it can be done just on sysNAND.
>>if you're on an N3DS you're better off using gpSP.
Less set up, is what I was going for. Everything I've thrown at it works well. Also tinkering around with core settings and all that libretro provides.
Those are two different questions, but ok.
What you want to do first before getting FE: Fates is to set up your emunand and your cfw. Use Gateway's launcher to format your emunand, then get rxTools or Cakes or whichever cfw you want and set it up. There's guides in the OP.
As for booting homebrew on boot, there's a hax trigger button option thing in menuhax manager. I think you want Type 2.
Yeah, it's not too late. The too late part is when you use Nintendo's format tool and tell it to go ahead and connect to the internet. Even then, you can fix your NNID, it just involves a lot more work.
The no going back refers to the way you could quit CFW in the future (I think that was your concern in the other thread? might be confused with someone else). The way to do that would be to update your EmuNAND and then overwrite your SysNAND with the EmuNAND. That'd bring you to the latest version with all of your legit shit accessible and your pirated shit inaccessible. Because your SysNAND will be at [some future version without kernel exploits], you won't be able to use CFW then. If you don't intend on quitting CFW then nvm.
Can't find anything on the pastebin beside the link to Cakes. How does one goes around updating the emunand of a n3ds to 10.3? Do I just launch the updater at Settings?
I'm still using a gateway with 9.2 sys and 10.3 emu, and up until now I've used a dstwo card to play gba games, but I want to install them to my 3ds so I won't have to swap cards all the time.
Are the pastebin steps about using AGB_FIRM safe for me to do?
Oh I see , no I do not intend to quit cfw at all. My concern was being able to keep my eshop purchases intact on sysnand while still being able to mess with emunand, in case I need to turn in my system for repairs etc
Thanks again for the help I'm going to try out the tinyformat. I was worried it was too late because I have already messed with emunand and installing .cias.
This whole unlinking nands thing became a concern when I saw I could fuck up my sysnand and brick which I would love to avoid. Also being able to change themes without losing menuhax
I've got some tools ordered to get my 3DS up to speed in the mail. I'm worried however they might not arrive in time before a big patch or browser hotfix.
Just as a failsafe, I'm wondering what kind of time frame I'm looking at. I'm new to this whole thing, so in the event my stuff doesn't arrive in time, how long would it typically take for the pros to get CFW and homebrew running on a new update like 10.4 or a browser hotfix?
He does this in every thread. The lack of dignity is astounding.
I'd say I agree because it will stop all the stupid questions, but they're just going to get replaced with you faggots spouting "10.4 NEVAR EVAR" because for some reason you all think tired old memes are still funny.
From what I've heard, using Gateway actually breaks AGB_FIRM. I mean you can install it and all but it supposedly doesn't work. You could set up rxTools for SysNAND use though. There's a thing in the config menu that lets it autoboot to SysNAND instead. Just install Menuhax+CtrBootManager on SysNAND but don't let it autoboot (or let it autoboot into gw.3dsx).
GBA games need to be installed in SysNAND anyway so if you're gonna dual CFW then you might as well skip the whole "install into EmuNAND" thing too.
THANKS ANON IT WORKED !!!!!!
that framerate tho....
Ok, I'll try and break it down.
So what we're trying to do here is format our SD card to create an emunand partition, which is basically a copy of the 3DS's internal memory on our SD card. That's where we run our cfw, which is basically our custom firmware for piracy and stuff. To do that, you need to either use Gateway's launcher or run Emunand9. Whichever method you prefer. Then you need to set up your custom firmware. You can use Cakes or rxTools. Don't listen to the meme shills who argue their cfw is better, just test both of them out and choose the one that suits you.
You can look at this guide here: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
If you want to install rxTools 3.0 instead of Cakes, just dump the rxTools release folder on the root of your SD card, and go to this site on your 3DS's internet browser.: https://dukesrg.github.io/?rxTools/sys/code.bin
As for menuhax autobooting, you're going to want to go to menuhax manager in homebrew. There should be an option for setting up the menuhax trigger buttons. You'll want to select Type 2, which basically means you'll boot into homebrew with menuhax unless you press a specific button.
Not sure if that helped, but I'm here if you have more questions
Hey techsavy people I got both RxTools and Reinand in my SD and launched both successfully, how do I set up the boot.cfg to have both available to run with CtrBootmanager? I tried to go to settings and set it up with the manager itself but doesn't add anything to the entry
Way I made sure to run each was that I got 2 boot.cfg which runs each one on its own but I want to have one that has option to run either one
Not sure where you downloaded but go to
Pick the first one on the list that that matches your needs (if you have CFW, use the cias since it's easier)
They come with cores.
Guys, I want to make a TWEWY theme but I want to ask you some things first:
Which song would you like to have?
I have in mind the Kingfom Hearts 3D version of Calling but I'm open to ideas.
You like colorful or minimalistic styles?
Take in mind, colorful like th JoJo theme in OP (a mess if you ask me)
I'd rather people actually talk about homebrew and modding. Nobody ever does in this general. It's dead when nothing is going on, minus people spouting memes, and when this shit happens we get 1000 posts in 20 minutes.
When this is over, or 10.4 comes out, it's going to go back to being dead and having the same 5 faggots lurking in here waiting to spout "NEVER EVER LOL"
Followed the retard guide to get HBLauncher on home screen.
The icon is there, it used to redirect to menuhax, then I changed the raw data file thing from "boot.3dsx" to "brew.3dsx".
Now it crashes while running. What did I fuck up this time?
Awhile back an anon posted a Yume Nikki theme.
Didn't like the pics he used but the music, folders, colors and SFX were nice so I built this from it.
What do you guys think?
please help me /hbg/, im trying to coldboot but I cant seem to do it. I have installed rxTools, menuhax and CTR the problem that Im having is that it goes like menuhax<CTR<rtools<menuhax
and goes on a loop. Am I doing something wrong? am I retard?
Has anybody else noticed that after a while CIA installs have gotten slow?
I have a good card and all that, and installs were going fast. But today, I tried installing a 1.4 gig game and it took about 6 hours.
Thank you so much! I was just wondering. I'm currently using a 4GB microsd temporarily, because my 32 gb isn't working. How would I go about transferring the files? Is it a simple drag & drop?
Only on O3DS. reiNAND got 10.3 N3DS support first, followed by Cakes, and most recently Gateway. rxTools shit as usual.
I'm actually surprised they're taking this long. They usually just copy/paste other people's code like Gateway, so it shouldn't take this long.
You have menuhax on emuNAND, you're only supposed to have it on sysNAND. Are your NANDs unlinked? If they are, hold your menuhax trigger so it doesn't boot menuhax the second time, then change your theme to break the emuNAND menuhax. If you're still linked, just unlink.
I don't think I've had an install take 6 hours, but the bottleneck is the CPU so your SD card doesn't really matter.
Reformatting the memory unlinked my sysNAND and to relink it requires me to update. I get an issue when trying to access the NNID options in the emuNAND.
If someone could help me with this, I would be set.
Okay, got CFW to run and succesfully installed Fire Emblem Awakening. How do I update stuff now? Im on ReiNand but didnt update Emunand to 10.3 so far. I dont think I can just access the store like that, right?
By the time that's ready, 10.4 will be out and I won't be able to system transfer again, which is why I'm trying to update...
So does anyone know if the GBA/GB/GBC emulator for the R4 cards is any good? Like compared to installing gbas to your emu/sysnand? It'd be pretty neat playing randomized red with gen 6 mons on my 3ds.
On a N3DS running rxTools 9.5. I have GBA games installed on both NANDs, but I can't seem to boot them (at least, from emuNAND--haven't booted into sysNAND to try).
Got them working on my O3DS on rxTools 10.3 through the same method. Is this normal? Is there a workaround?
What song should I use for pic related? Currently thinking Joyful Todays but idk if it's comfy enough.
Really? I was told lameboy or whatever for the r4 worked pretty well by some, but that was a bit back I think. So just install them on emu/sysnand then? Does installing and stuff even support gbs/gbcs?
>NEVERMIND I FOUND IT :^)
>Last online 57 minutes ago
Getting an error when trying to update games. They're all the same region as my 3ds, wat do?
>go to 3dsthemes
>everything is either undertale, steven universe or weeb shit
GBA games go to both SysNAND & EmuNAND, both to destination SD if you're using FBI. The patched AGB_FIRM goes to destination NAND on both.
For GB/GBC, just install GameYob to SysNAND. You can use lameboy (or hell, the original DS GameYob), but there isn't really a point in using DS homebrew when there's superior 3DS homebrew. There's also GB & GBC VC plus injected stuff but nobody really bothers, homebrew emulators tend to be better than that.
lameboy is only for gb/c, and it runs pretty perfectly in my experience. on 3ds, you can use homebrew emulators, which work well for gb/c and terribly for gba, and inject any gb/c/a game into a virtual console package, which doesn't work for every gb/c game and works flawlessly with gba (since it's not emulation)
Hey not that guy but I created emunand through gateway launcher which I the added rxtools. Now I'm sure I don't have rxtools 3.0 what am I missing out I think it's one of the 2.something version that's thrown out a lot.
I didn't know about the menuhax type 2 only of type 0 thanks
So what's next once we hit cfw unlink nands right? Retard guide says tinyformat
You know, these threads have been fast. I would have missed a lot of the posts I've answered to in the last few days if it wasn't for these kinds of posts. Anyway, when is that other guy going to take the tripcode away? I'd say he's been using it a little too much.
I'd rater see that not happening again too. Do you try to start the kind of conversation you want, though? That would be a good starting point.
Ah alright I was originally gonna put GBA/GBC/GB emus on the R4 card just to have all the older stuff (Ds, gbs, etc.) in one location rather than take up any space on my Sd card. but If nothing else I'll just install lameboy or gameyob like you guys suggested. I'll still probably try the r4 emulator option just to put the microsd card to use and save actual sd space but I've downloaded the 3ds version of gameyob just in case they turn out to run shitty on r4. (Though just looked at gameyobs .nds file and apparently people say that one runs gbs/gbcs properly so Hopefully it'll be good.)
Wait, I think I got it. It's not letting me update the games because it's actually still linked to my old NNID. Am I right? If so, how do I unlink it from emunand?
Also is it possible to get the legit stuff back? I didn't have much, only paid for shovel knight, but if it's easy to do then why not.
Err, GameYob would go on EmuNAND. How did I fuck that up? But yeah, do whatever, GB/GBC emulation works fine on DS too. The GB has a CPU of like 3mhz and equally worthless graphics hardware, pretty sure you could emulate it on a sufficiently advanced calculator.
Depends what sort of games you're into. Most people overlook the eshop exclusive stuff like Pullblox and Dillon's Western, but I think that in terms of 'pick up and play' games, they're on par with some of the full price ones.
Savedatafiler should have an option for this.
Hey guys, I have a 32gb microsd which wasn't working for downgrading or accessing homebrew. Now when I try and delete the files on it, the files will delete, but if I unplug it from my ckmp and replug it in, it shows the files as still there. How do I get rid of them permanently?
If it's an N3DS with a browser, any N3DS guide will work. You only need to know how to change themes, how to set up/use the browser and how to update the system. All of the homebrew stuff is in English.
Keep in mind that if you downgrade, you need to delete one .cia file from the downgrade pack. Most guides will mention it. I don't remember the name off-hand.
If it's an 8.1J N3DS without a browser... oh boy.
Unlinking nands is optional, but yes, that'd be the next step. You'd use tinyformat on the nand you want to format. (So if you want to format sysnand, you'd run tinyformat in sysnand, and if you want to format emunand, you'd run tinyformat in emunand.)
I'll be glad if anyone gets any use out of it. I'm trying to learn to dump my eShop content from emuNAND but so far I'm not having any luck. I mean, I get that most content is already out there, but more links are better than fewer because they're all going to start getting take down eventually.
Damn, I'm so close!
I notice that my emuNAND has my NNID, but gets an error whenever I try to use it (022-2634). My NNID is not linked to my sysNAND, but to link it, I would need to update. If I can just get over this one huddle... google isn't helping me much.
FunkyCIA2 is the easiest thing by far. You can get the necessary files with Decrypt9's file dump feature.
I don't think there's any guides that explain how to do it "properly" though. There's gotta be a way to rip installed games instead of re-downloading them from Nintendo (which is what FunkyCIA does).
Yeah. Well knowing nintendo it is not "perfect enough" at least according to them since otherwise they would have been selling GBA games on 3DS already. Instead all it officially has been is few giveaway games. Same as how N64 Zeldas were on Gamecube but only as giveaways either bundled or just straight out giveaway, and the manuals on majora's mask warning about sound distortion and crashes which still are rare as fuck.
Backup your emunand.bin with something like emunandtool or EmuNAND9
Backup your NINTENDO 3DS folder from root of your SD card.
Go to your emunand and format it from system settings
Go through initial setup and then go to system settings and link to your NNID account.
After this shut down, restore your Nintendo 3DS folder and Emunand from your backup.
Reply to my post with "I will send you a box of pussies thanks anon"
I'll look into it. Thanks anon. I've already tried a Braindump guide, and I've tried adding xorpads by appending the end of the Uncart guide I used to dump those carts. I don't have much on eShop but I would still like to share. Plus, one anon here was looking for Swapnote so I was hoping it would be of some use.
I didn't format emunand, but that should be fine I think. It didn't take that long for me.
It doesn't matter. Choose whichever one you prefer. As for rxtools 3.0, it's basically rxtools 2.6 being expanded on by the pasta cfw dev team. Opinions are divided on whether it's worth using or not, since it's in an alpha stage, but I'm personally fine with it. Your choice really.
>it is not "perfect enough" at least according to them since otherwise they would have been selling GBA games on 3DS already
I thought they wanted to keep GBA and DS games as WiiU exclusives though
They said the GBA ambassador games would have been something special specifically for those who bought it in March 2011 or so.
Trust me: How fucking down's syndrome would you be to not release handheld games on handheld console unless your Q/A thought it was not good enough to sell for 7 eur a pop.
That is a fact. I Can tell that they feel it is incomplete is true too since GBA games cannot go to sleep mode for one.
Tell me anything.
I'm trying to keep things simple.
>want to install theme
>its installed on sysnand instead on emunand
>test out new FTP-3DS build
>it transfers at 0.9-1.4MB/s compared to 100kbps before
This is bretty gud
DS games work 100% as they should, sleep mode and all though. You can even trigger them into original pixel ratio mode if you want to. The 3DS AGB fucks up sound effects in games like mother 3 when injected (granted not as bad as some emulators) and so on. It is very much like how N64 zeldas on gamecube were I would say.
