-10.4 NOT TODAY
-Browserhax server is having some issues still
-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.
-Hykem generously shared some keys, seems to be in good spirits.
-Yellows8's .mp4 exploit has not been patched in 5.5.1
-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.
>reading guide about converting stuff from .3ds to .cia
>all this shit about xorpads and nccinfo.bin and stuff
>no idea about any of those things

>place in SD card, install it through FBI
What the fuck was that all about?
Will this come back to fuck me over in the future? I didn't have to deal with absolutely anything to do with xorpads and shit
>Please respond jesus christ I'm having a heart attack
can you run gamecarts? do you own OoT or cubic ninja? O3DS/N3DS/2DS? Were you trying to downgrade or update, and do you have a NAND backup?
Yeah exactly, except I just used Simple Converter right off the bat and it still worked anyways without me having to go in and do the xorpads stuff.
I'm just worried I'm actually missing something super huge and this will fuck me over somehow.
>FUCKING COLORED BUTTONS
>considering that "comfy"
I was trying to downgrade after installing Menuhax and Sysupdate
From the /v/ pastebin.
According to my computer, there are exactly 126 files in the Updates folder. Should I just format and start from scratch?
formatting the system memory will do nothing. attempt to do a system update back to 10.3 to flash a clean OFW back on and start all over. use safesysupdater so it md5hash-checks all your files before downgrading
Why can't I install tinyformat.cia?
I'm at unlinking NANDs
I've already unlinked my NNID somehow but I don't know what unlinking nands is and I've never been able to get FBI tool in HBL to work
All electronics need to be black or they look bad.
I'm sorry but niggers win this one.
>I've already unlinked my NNID somehow but I don't know what unlinking nands is and I've never been able to get FBI tool in HBL to work
NAND = operating system
sysNAND = OS running from internal 3DS storage
emuNAND = replica of sysNAND running off SD card
unlinking NANDs = formatting sysnand so its ID changes to something entirely different. your real ID stays on emunand, though.
when you format, your NAND changes IDs, meaning it will read from an entirely different folder within SD:/Nintendo 3DS/, which is where all your games/saves exist
anyway about FBI, make sure you're in a CFW on sysnand like pasta, or you will not be able to install .cias (FBI installs to SD, by the way)
when launching your sysnand CFW (like pasta), don't forget to hold your homemenuhax trigger button, or it will try to launch boot.3dsx instead of booting into sysnand cfw
I want to install CHHM2 but I'm scared I might fuck it up and have to redo everything I've done so far.
I used a pretty old guide so I'm not sure if I missed anything in the new one.
My FBI is injected into H&S, I don't have HBL installed and I coldboot into the CTRBootManager when I turn my system on, then I just pick homebrew menu from there instead of booting into rxtools.
Is there any risk involved in CHHM2?
So earlier toda my pirated fire emblem was working fine but just now when I tried to start it it gives me a "sd card was removed error" do I have to reinstall? why does this error occur?
yes, if you have the patience to get a CFW on it and get yourself a good-ass SD card too
i... think that didn't format emunand? try flashing your emunand back into the card with emunand tool and copy your Nintendo 3DS folder back on. see if your NNID is already there, because if you had it on sysnand when formatting emunand then it should have copied over. see >>129002716
What does flashing my emunand back mean? I can't just copy it back over? Every time I copy stuff back onto my SD card it acts like it's a totally new machine since I've reformatted it several times now in confusion.
Help I followed the guide, I can get HBL working but this step of the guide
>Before you do the next steps go into your emuNAND (Hold L on boot, release L and press rxTools) and enter eshop once, it doesn't have to let you in. This should create database files needed for FBI to work.
When I do this all I get is a red screen and the system crashes
I downgraded to 9.2 and I can't access Menuhax anymore so I try going into homebrew from Browserhax but whenever I click the far left of the slider the browser just closes itself and nothing happens, what do?
flashing emunand means taking your sysnand and making a duplicate of it on your SD card, thus "emulated NAND"
it's in a hidden partition of your SD card taking up 1GB of space (2GB if N3DS) so you can't see it without a proper tool like EmuNAND Tool.
if your card's name is "EMUNAND9SD" or "GATEWAYNAND" then you know emunand is on the card.
you can format it with EmuNAND9.3dsx.
and once again, please see >>129002716 so this (hopefully) makes more sense. think of "NAND" like a /system32/ folder on windows
What's all this shit about CHMM2? I'm going to use the .3ds just because I can, but do I still need to fuck about using MenuHax_Installer to delete the cache if I want themes on my Emunand (with MenuHax set up only on Sysnand)?
I know I've had emunand flashed in somehow before since I 'lost' some of my max space on the card and the name is emunand something
I looked at >>129002716
but I think I've messed up too many things out of order. How can I get this thing back to 9.2 or 10.3 with my own nnid back on it and all the hacks gone? I want to give up.
my main cia: fafnir knight on expert
secondary: picross 2, curtain call, mario 3d land, nsmb2, shovel knight+dlc, sonic 2
installed and not played: layton azran, bravely default, zelda lbw, ace atorney trilogy, pokemon omega ruby
hype: new etrian odyssey, new zero escape
wish there was more to hype about
you can boot into emunand through a Custom FirmWare (CFW), which can be launched through Homebrew Loader (HBL)
You should hopefully know how to set up HBL if you've already downgraded, though. Homemenuhax will trigger SD:/boot.3dsx, which is HBL (assuming you got boot.3dsx from the starter.zip from smealum's website)
Some of the more popular EmuNAND CFWs include: ReiNAND, Cakes, RxTools
If you need one for SysNAND, RxTools and Pasta can do that. Just remember to hold your homemenuhax button to prevent triggering HBL again.
>but I think I've messed up too many things out of order. How can I get this thing back to 9.2 or 10.3 with my own nnid back on it and all the hacks gone? I want to give up.
That's a shame to hear. Do you have your original NAND.bin, for either SysNAND or EmuNAND?
Well see, if you've already downgraded, you have literally no risk of bricking anymore unless you do something really dumb to sysnand.
EmuNAND exists for that reason: You can mess with it and recover it easily, because it exists on the SD card.
Are you absolutely sure you want to give up? I can help guide you through the CFW process.
LMAO I made this thread and stuck in the other one because I realized I made it too early. Just realized people still using this one. The new guide is from the anon that requested it last thread. You think I give a fuck about it when I made the last thread without it too? How about you make the next one and not let it get to 900 replies and on page 8 like this one >>128958275
Can anyone give me a hand with this part?
>Reinand CFW 3.0 with the correct firmware file
> the correct firmware file has MD5 sum 58F906DA282894A525FCCFEDDF5AA11C
>I can't link that here, but you could try googling for the MD5 sum
>be sure to click show all results at the bottom if you can't find it
I found one firmware.bin but it was for the N3ds and I have an O3ds.
Following this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-9-0-9-2-n3ds-xl-for-cfw-including-10-3-emunand-coldboot-cia-installer.405589/
yes. be absolutely sure you are in emunand, or you will accidentally update sysnand. note that closing out of system settings will cause you to boot back into sysnand (or launch homemenuhax because that's what you have on sysnand, most likely)
>Have to boot NTR like 5 times to get it to work
Is this normal? Because it's getting annoying any time I turn my 3DS off to have to keep rebooting it when NTR freezes.
I completely successfully downgraded to 9.2 U
I've gotten browserhax up and then menuhax
I can successfuly boot automatically into the homebrew thing just by turning on my ds 99% of the time
I was ORIGINALLY following a n3ds guide by mistake and at a certain fail point I quit that and started over by dragging a copy I had made onto my SD card (after deleting everything)
My NNID is unlinked
I have no idea if my NANDs are unlinked
FBI will not install tinywhatever from the tutorial in the link I linked.
It also asks me to go into minipasta, which seems to succeed but instead of taking me to a home menu as described, takes me to the HBL again (because of the auto launch settings?)
Here is the root of my sd card. please ask if there are other areas you need to see. I don't remember all I did.
So Im working through the completely retarted guide and im looking at its instructions to fix the eshop problem. It says
Q: I get Error 022-2634 when I open the eShop
A: Do the following:
1) Turn on your 3DS into Homebrew Launcher (hold L, select Homebrew Launcher)
2) Run EMUNAND9
3) Select EmuNAND Manager Options > Backup EmuNAND to EmuNAND.bin
Ive gone into emunand9 manager options and I cant find an option to backup emunand to emunand.bin There is an option to dump emunand to emunand.bin is that the same thing
Alright so I have got my version successfully downgraded to 9.2 and I reinstalled the menuhax with browserhax. Is this a safe and stable place to stop for a while? Out of the reach of nintendo updates and the like?
Also is the worst/hardest part over after the downgrade? Or are there other parts with emuNAND coming up that are equally scary with brick potential to worry about?
For good measure, format sysnand with the SD card out. That will ensure your NANDs are unlinked.
Yes, you cannot install TinyFormat using FBI unless you are running a CFW, which requires Pasta/minipasta/RxTools SysNAND)
When you boot into a CFW on sysnand, it will definitely trigger homemenuhax, which you might not want. However, in this case, you really do want to go back to HBL so you can use FBI.3dsx to install FBI.cia.
Do this: Power on, HBL, Pasta, HBL again, FBI.3dsx, press L to ensure "Destination: SD", then install FBI.cia to SD.
Power on again, run pasta, hold your homemenuhax button so you don't trigger boot.3dsx, and see if FBI is on your home menu.
Let me know if anything goes wrong.
Yeah, but I need 10.3 to actually do anything, right? How can I update to 10.3 without buying a 10.3 game (and without using Nintendo's update system, assuming that 10.4 is already on their servers)?
Depends what 10.4 does really. It could royally fuck the hacks up or it might just break BrowserHax. In which case you could still use Cubic Ninja if you were really in peril.
But yeah, I guess grabbing a console sooner while 10.3 is still current is the safer and cheaper route.
Install failed for FBI.cia
invalid argument 0x7 and invalid signature 0x6a
I'm going to go set buttons for my boot tools I guess so it wont take me where I won't want
Where do I do that again? Also I couldn't get to the system tools for formatting because it keeps restarting and throwing me into HBL
I can't run HBL from the home screen. Please Help!
How do I use NTR?
I launch up ReiNand, install NTR's CIA in FBI
Reboot N3DS and launch ReiNand again
Launch NTR again
Launch European version of Paper Jam
decrease chance for ever having custom firmware by 99.9%
decrease stability of existing userland homebrew by 50%
increase chance of locking yourself out of future kernel or even userland homebrew by 200%
Time for the msot retarded question ITT
I managed to get homebrew installed on the system and I've got the files to perform a downgrade to 9.2 (I'm on 10.3), but I accessed the eshop via homebrew while still on 10.3.
Does this mean they can detect anything wrong with my system?
try to enter eshop and ignore the update. also, go to system settings>data management>3ds>software and reboot, then try installing it again.
that should hopefully initialize the /dbs/ and /extdata/ folders so you can install the .cia properly... otherwise, we'll resort to the decrypt9 injection method.
Anyone here that's played or is playing Super Metroid on blargSNES 1.3b? The game was running flawlessly up until a room in Maridia that consistently makes the game glitch out and be unplayable. The emulator doesn't crash or anything, though. I'm on an O3DSXL if it matters.
I'm aware that the emulator needs a lot of work and compatibility varies from version to version.
>Is sysUpdate buggy?
technically, the exploit you're using to gain the kernel access necessary to downgrade is buggy
sysupdater itself is pretty stable
but yes, 99% of the time you will freeze with a black screen, freeze with text, or get "failed to get cia info"
make sure you're using juilan20's latest build or safesysupdater, otherwise just keep trying, can take hours
just for the sake of explaining to a technologically impaired person i will allow it
Thanks but the only few moments when it "boots", it rolls back to the homebrew launcher.
For some reason, updating to 10.3 messed it up. I did put the latest version of cakes. My only explanation left is that I need another firmware.bin than the one I was using before.
if you continue to get softbricked, try formatting your sd card or using a different sd card
99% of the things people recommend are placebo bullshit that just wastes time
the other 1% are bad firmware/bad sd card/bad sd card reader
oh yeah whoops. browserhax to set up menuhax, then use menuhax to boot pasta, HBL (in pasta mode), FBI.3dsx, install FBI.cia to SD
to ensure you actually installed pasta (if it said it let you), reboot back into HBL, run pasta, hold the menuhax trigger to boot into the actual home menu (in pasta cfw) and hopefully you should see+be able to run FBI as a channel
Time to act like a fucking retard who can't read guides.
I downgraded my n3ds about a week ago, while it still wasn't possible to update your emunand to 10.3 and it was solely limited to 9.5
Now it seems to be possible, but all the guides assume that you install CakesFW from scratch instead of trying to update the thing.
Could someone tell me how to or where to lurk in order to update my emunand from 9.5 to 10.3 with old cakesFW. I'd be glad if I don't lose anything seeing I already have about 50 gb of games on it.
Also I'm sure I must have done some of this before because I think I have like 4 accounts in this thing now.
The biggest one is probably my original. I don't even know which one I'm working from now but they're taking up all my space on the card
The biggest one is most definitely your original, and we'll worry about that once you get a CFW booting up your emunand.
For now, we want to get FBI on your sysnand (so you can mess with that later if you want to) and get a CFW booting you into emunand.
After we get the CFW booting into EmuNAND, we'll restore all 4 of those NAND.bins you have into emunand and see which one reads from your Nintendo 3DS folder (I'm willing to bet it's the oldest NAND.bin you have)
Then, we inject FBI into EmuNAND with Decrypt9.
But anyway, let me know if you can get FBI on sysnand first.
On 10.4+ emuNAND for N3DS
>"Basically they can't actually change the keys with an update. All they can do is change which keyslots encrypt/decrypt what, and since we now have all of the keys it becomes very hard for them to actively prevent emunand update from working. Even if they update the native_firm with 10.4 and swap around which keys are used to encrypt the kernel, we can easily figure out which ones are in use and update CFW to follow."
note the filesize for each
install/uninstall something on emunand
the one that changes is emunand
install a legit cia or something on sysnand
the one that changes is sysnand
the others are we
And then they decided to give Wii U the same normal key
actually you know what? rename the /Nintendo 3DS/ folder and let your 3DS generate a new one. Once you find out the name of the folder inside of /Nintendo 3DS/, you'll know that one is your current SysNAND folder, which you will use to install FBI on
I recommend making a NAND.txt file in the /Nintendo 3DS/ folder so you remember which one that is. You should also log that the largest folder you have is your EmuNAND folder. Then you can delete the other two (back them up on your computer until we're absolutely sure everything works, I guess)
I abandoned my 3ds for a while, I had 9.7 on emunand and an older update on sysnand.
Now I read all this stuff about downgrading, can I update emunand to 10.3 with a game or is there something I need to know?
CHMM: Error: [string "?"]:3: unexpected symbol near ' </141>'
Still can't get GBA games to work at all. Patched AGP and the .cia'd roms are installed on both emuNAND and sysNAND, black screen no matter what rom I try.
Is the problem CakesFW? Which FW should I try if it is?
Is the homebrew launcher known for being unstable?
I've tried setting it up 7 times now but it crashes constantly.
Everything is still working fine, but trying to set it up while holding Y constantly just makes my system tell me to shut down the console and reboot.
Added the updates to my list too.
If anybody got more Mega links post them ITT
err sorry, installed FBI**
if pasta boots you back into HBL, you know it's working. also this is a real clusterfuck of information i'm giving you right now, sorry. let me start over.
Rename your /nintendo 3ds/ folder, power on without triggering boot.3dsx so you get back into home menu and not HBL. Let your 3DS generate a new Nintendo 3DS folder. Copy the name of the folder inside of the /Nintendo 3DS/ your 3DS generated and put it in a NAND.txt (make one), so you know that's your sysnand folder. Delete that folder, rename your actual one back, put NAND.txt in your original /Nintendo 3DS/ folder, enter eshop in sysnand, close without updating, enter system settings, data management, nintendo 3ds, software, shut off, then do >>129005540
really long string of instructions, but i just need to make sure we're on the same page.
Making a copy of an SD card is not the same as simply copying the contents of the card, right?
I'm getting near the step where I have to make a copy of the entire card because the original will be formatted.
fuck this folder?
Also I'd already probably generated one lmao this is awful being retarded hang on let me try things and ruin everything
Yes, /Nintendo 3DS/, and not /3ds/
/3ds/ is the folder where all your HBL apps are. /Nintendo 3DS/ is where your NANDs officially read games/apps/saves/game updates which display on the home menu (minus saves/game updates)
I recommend 32GB personally, with a fast write speed (at least 20MB/s, but anything faster is cool too i guess. know that you're transferring roms that can get as large as 4GB [like bravely default])
also, i highly recommend you at least downgrade right now. you can transfer everything from your sd card to the new one, and once nintendo patches the 10.3 downgrading exploit, you're screwed
Alright it generated one that already existed
What did you mean that I needed to make a nand text file?
Got a Michael Rosen theme here, anybody in here want it?
This one worked fine for me
You can start with a 4gig, you'll just only be able to put on 1 or 2 games. 3 if you're lucky and what you're playing is small.
I use a 64 gig micro SDXC I bought at Officeworks because it was pretty cheap considering the price of things here.
I have quite a few games on it and I'm only halfway through filling it. Then again, all the games I want to download now are 2 to 4 gigs each so yeah.
You don't HAVE to do this, it's just for your own personal use so you know which folder is your sysnand and emunand: you can delete all the other ones (back them up if you're not sure if they came from other 3DSes though)
emunand definitely is (or should be) using the largest of the folders. If it isn't, we'll restore your NANDs to emunand until we find the one that works, but we'll worry about that later.
Sorry for asking a retarded question, but I booted into cfw with cakes, now the guide is suggesting
>setup coldbooting into emuNAND with ctrbootmanager
>go to your sysNAND and make sure you've loaded a theme
My question is how do I know when im in sysnand or emunand?
And how can I tell them a part.
I know they're all new from me fucking up because I had checked in this folder before as I went.
18gb one is emunand? I thought it would be the original sysnand from before I started all this. The rest are like 15mb
Oh no, my games will take 0.2 seconds to save instead of 0.1, what ever will I do?
As for transfer times for installing things, those take a long ass time regardless of how fast your card is. The 3DS is just slow as shit.
Yes, it is your original sysnand. You're using emunand to read it from now on so you can update while in CFW/play around with your original SysNAND without worrying about bricking.
Remember, when you do an emunand setup in emunand9, you are taking a replica of your original sysnand and copying it over to your SD card. then, you formatted your sysnand so it no longer reads that folder anymore.
How good is this card, /hbg/?
I've only heard it happen to one person, and it was for DS2, and they couldn't even confirm if the link they had gotten the game was from a Region Free version or not
Links stay up until either more than one occurrence or it's flat out confirmed they are bad rips.
Has nobody managed to get GBA games to work? If you have, what FW were you using? Linked/unlinked NANDs? Anything in particular you had to do that wasn't listed http://pastebin.com/rSvR4bHd or https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-agb_firm-signature-patcher-gba-rom-converter.390313/?
Please help, I just want to play Castlevania.
What is wrong with you. Here's a good 64gb card that's much better http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Memory-Adapter-MB-MP64DA-AM/dp/B00IVPU7AO/qid=1453150270&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+64gb+micro+sd
How do I install CIAs? When I hover over any game, there is no title at the top screen. When I launch it, it crashes my N3DS.
If NTR is supposed to help, I have no idea how to use it.
Im using ReiNand. Its only games that wont work
When you use ctrbootmanager to directly boot cakes, youre in emunand.
Using menuhax typ2 booting mode and starting your 3ds while holding L boots you to sysnand.
Make a folder in emunand called EMUNAND so that you can tell them apart. This folder wont appear in Sysnand if you've unlinked both your NANDS.
64 SDXC Sandisk is working fine.
Still works fine. You're fucking up somewhere, and browserhax is unstable by itself. If you're on n3ds, turn off your internet while scanning the code, then turn it on while loading the page.
Are you still properly linked to your NNID?
Could someone still help me on this? Im fucking retarded and can't find a proper guide for it.
10.3 N3DS Reinand. Patched on Sysnand and Emunand with Devmenu, I'm sure you can find it on the pastebin or 3dsiso.
Remember to install gba cias to both sysnand and emunand to get them working correctly.
Alright Ive done this
Power -> auto HBL -> minipasta ->auto HBL
Now in the menu I have FBI, I open it and go into CIAs
inside are a lot of cias but I also have FBI.cia and TinyFormat.cia
Do I install FBI?
Sorry for this dumbass question, but what do I use to make a copy of my SD card?
Also, if I were to transfer everything into a larger card, I'd just move everything to the new card, right?
Okay so I'm literally fucking retarded. I have an N3DS on 10.1 and I'm scared to update. I was reading the Pastebin and I saw that it's super unsafe to downgrade and people are throwing around weird hacky words. Could I get an explanation for a complete dumbass on how to downgrade on N3DS, pirate shit because I'm a filthbag, and get emuNAND shit going?
Having downgraded to 9.2, I now find that every time I try to access homebrew via the Internet, nothing happens.
I hover over the QR code, and a blank webpage just loads.
Does this mean I have to transfer the files to the SD yet again?
Yes, while in you're in that menu, run FBI.3dsx and then install FBI.cia. no need for tinyformat anymore. Install FBI to SD. Not NAND. Press L to change destination, keep an eye on the top screen so you know for sure.
Then, press A to install.
1-Install all the files to the SD. The homebrew isnt on the internet, its an code exploit that allows you to boot files from your SD.
2-Check your internet connection and settings.
Read the OP. Come on man. Its retard proof.
Install Multifreepatcher and Hans. Run multifreepatcher first, then boot the ESHOP through HANS. If you cant log in properly, your NNID is fucked.
There are plenty of guides how to relink that shit on GBAtemp.
Still need some help on this
I'm trying to install FIB to emunand using the decrypt9 and universal inject generator method but for some reason after i have dumped H&S hs.app, put it in the input folder and try to run go.bat i just get "Press any key to continue . . ." and the 2 files i'm supposed to get are nowhere to be found, any idea how to fix?
I thank you all.
Whats the specific error that happens while your DS crashes.
First of all, make sure your CIA is clean. You dont need NTR.
Second, install it to SD and not NAND (you probably know this im just saying shit man)
Okay so I'm using this guide:
>.359 : Install HB Launcher (Home Menu App)
I've done literally everything there but it still tells me its trying to install/download some payload or something (text passes by way too fast), then it crashes. Doesn't freeze, but the system tells me "error occurred, please reboot".
Is this common and I have to just retry again and again or why does it do that?
Can you go online with the .cia?
plz respond f.a.m
>about to transfer sd card backup back to sd card for the emunand
someone said 4 GB card would be enough but guess not. I can get a big card when I go back to work in two days or go out now and buy one if that would be safer.
At this point I would just need to redo the "Complete EmuNAND Setup" on the new card and copy my sd card backup folder to it right?
For the record, you only hold Y when you want to boot offline.
check your wireless settings to make sure you aren't blocking internet access.
Besides that I can't tell you. smealum arleady confirmed that the servers were back up, so there shouldn't be a reason why you can't download the payload.
First result on google.
Now convince a nigga to help me with this.
I made my own folder for the CIA's.
When my N3DS Crashes, I just get "An error has occured. Hold down the POWER Button to turn off the power, then turn it on and try again." Nothing special. Im able to restart the 3DS and run ReiNand easily.
Also, is NTR Required for playing Region Locked games like FE Fates/Paper Jam?
Okay I'll just start the launcher again without holding anything and with internet turned on
another anon from the previous thread apparently busted a lot of shit trying to set it up and advised me to "keep holding Y" but maybe I misunderstood something
Awesome, and no problem. Also sorry for the slow replies, because I'm actually hopping back and forth eating dinner lol
Now you want to get a CFW running emunand. You are N3DS, right? Get yourself CakesCFW and try to boot it through HBL.
I think after 10 tries I finaly managed to downgrade 10.3 -> 9.2
Should I take make backup at some stage?
The retards guide does not mention backup at all, but other people suggest dumping backupfiles on computer.
Well I've started the thing in step 8 and 9 of the guide.
This is the second time starting it up after already having renamed something in that new file on my SD card
I've done literally everything up to the last step, but now it doesn't just start up.
I'll just try again and see what happens this time.
>Well I've started the thing in step 8 and 9 of the guide.
*with internet turned on
I though I wouldn't need the access anymore in the last step and I always turn my internet off because I'm too lazy to tubehax right now
NTR is only required if the CIAs dont have their data modified to make it regionfree (simple text edit). 3Diso.com tells you which games are unlocked and which arent.
If youre installing on SD I dont know man. I don't know ReiNand so if both FBI and BBM fail you im outta juice.
Yes. Its in the bloody guide.
You're safe. However if you ever fuck it up and you don't have a sysnand backup available, youre unable to update back to 10.3 using nintendo's servers when the update hits. You need to cover yourself with a backup and then youre fine.
You make a backup now and once youre done. Emunand9 DUMP NAND and EMUNAND functions are the actual backups.
Need some support here.
Can this be done on an N3DS XL? I want to download and play without a cart, but I have no idea where to start. Anyone have a guide/instructions on how to get an XL 10.3 to do all this stuff?
I'm trying to make a theme but when I install it on my 3ds the music only plays up to like 2:15 loops the last couple of seconds for like 45 seconds then starts over. The song is 3 minutes long and works fine in YATA.
>You're safe. However if you ever fuck it up and you don't have a sysnand backup available, youre unable to update back to 10.3 using nintendo's servers when the update hits. You need to cover yourself with a backup and then youre fine.
What does this entail? If I were to just copy my SD card right now to my PC, would that serve the purpose of a sysnand backup?
Alright anons, Im a fucking idiot and I have my o3DSXL with me, a brand new 64gig SD card, and an SD Card reader and the retard's guide open.
First question because I'm stupid, how am I copying the data thats already on my 3DS to the new SD card or does that even matter? I don't really care about my saved progress on any of the games atm.
oh right okay
get yourself rxtools. for the sake of simplicity, i will link you rxtools omega, which is a pre-modified version of rxtools 3.0
rename SD:/boot.3dsx to "boot_hb.3dsx" and then copy the contents of the O3DS folder to your SD root. If you did it properly, you should now have SD:/rxtools/sys/code.bin (and everything else that was included)
If you have an rxtools folder already, delete that and replace it with this one.
Power on and see if it boots into a purple menu and then eventually emunand. If it crashes, try again until you see a home menu. Hopefully, all your apps will already be there. If they are, change the menu theme to whatever you want, so you know this is your emunand. Report back if your apps/games/saves aren't in there, or if rxtools doesn't boot for you.
Well tubehax IS optional, but then again maybe I'm putting too much trust into myself not accidentaly clicking that prompt...
Okay so I've started the menuhax launcher loader AGAIN with internet on and no button pressed and it goes right up until "Jumpng into payload..." then it crashes 3 seconds later.
It recognizes that I've already downloaded it though.
Should I maybe manually delete that "payload" from my SD and let it download it again?
Yeah then you'll have to install it in sysnand. You don't want menuhax in emunand, especially if you're running CTRBootManager. Idk how you'd enter HBL in sysnand if browserhax is still down though.
I updated my Cakes installation and went from 9.5 to 10.3 without any issue.
Simply delete following:
Download the 108 release and copy everything over again.
Place slot0x11key96.bin in /sdcard/ and the correct firmware.bin and cetk to /sdcard/cakes.
I also copied the old firmkey.bin and slot0x25KeyX.bin to their usual places again (but I think you don't need them).
Afterward it will initialize everything like the first time again, meaning: don't forget to set the patches before you launch it.
Then I went to settings and started the update.
The first time after the update I had a black screen, but after the second try everything worked flawlessly.
Reinstalled NTR, and it works as well.
Only the 3D is still fucked and needs closing/opening. No clue if this will ever be fixable.
>You don't want menuhax in emunand, especially if you're running CTRBootManager.
Well shit I just did that.
If I change themes on EMUNand that should remove Menuhax right?
>Idk how you'd enter HBL in sysnand if browserhax is still down though.
I have to wait for the server to go back up right?
Do I delete this other rxtools from my sd card that I guess I had already put on there?
System settings. Data management. 3DS software. Delete it there.
Theres a literal n3ds guide in the OP. Read the OP. it has every single step written out in retard terms how to do it.
Damnit I patched N-ver. You're making it sound like I'm fucked. I can enter the Eshop and access my NNID just fine, so im kinda set in stone here.
So I download the newest CakesFW in the guide, throw it on \3ds and boot that shit through ctrmanager? Doesnt that fuck with my NNID or something?
Yes, but you dont need it. Just use the homebrewlauncer.cia or ctrmanager.
No. The SD has hidden files that you cant just simply copy paster over.
Look, if you brick the 3DS without a backup, you need to enter restoration mode and update it with the latest firmware directly from the servers. Thats why you either do it now or get a proper backup.
The files you need are invisible and dont copy over properly, so you need to use the homebrew program called EMUNAND9 (in the guide) to dump your NAND.BIN and EMUNAND.BIN (emunand only incase you already succeeded to put cfw on it) to your SD. Then you hold on to these bin files incase you fuck up. You can use it to restore your 3ds.
2 questions. Will my NNID remain intact? I fixed it on 9.5 and would love to keep that shit.
Second, I dont know what you mean with "dont forget to set the patches before you launch it".
You mean enable the SET PATCHES option in the CAKESFW boot menu while booting it through ctrmanager?
Sorry for the shitty questions. Im a special case.
So i wan't to reinstall emunand and like start from the very beginning, what do?Also i just today downgraded to 9.2 and the tutorial i followed for cfw was pretty shitty and now i want to use the different one that is much cleaner and i will probably make much less mistakes with.
>Damnit I patched N-ver. You're making it sound like I'm fucked. I can enter the Eshop and access my NNID just fine, so im kinda set in stone here.
another anon said its the same even with patched nver
why would updating your cfw fuck with your nnid?
What does updating your cfw have to do with ANYTHING pertaining to your NNID?
Did someone tell you that it does? 'cause they're wrong.
I keep getting the error when trying to use Browserhax.
I've tried every way to fix it
>Just run it
>Clean your shit and then run it
>Clean your shit (while the internet is shut off) and then run it
>Clean your shit, shut off and then run it
>Shut off and then boot up to run it
It still doesn't work, I'm on 9.0
I'd rather suck cocks for a Class 1 2GB memory card, anon.
Well it says that its checking for the "otherapp payload", which it then finds.
>but it should say "the ropbin is ready"
You sure this doesn't come AFTER
>Jumping into the payload..."
Because thats the last thing I could read before it crashes.
I'll try deleting that payload first now and then retrying
Alright it booted into the RXtools menu which installed something and then eventually threw me to the home menu
the home menu was empty and started to set up a new everything and my old games were not there
Trying to install a game and got
>could not install app.
>Raw Error: 0xd8e0806a
>module: AM (0x20)
>level: permanent (0x1b)
>summary: invalid argument (0x7)
>description: invalid signature (0x6a)
It's a simple system update. Why would it touch your NNID?
Yes, Select Patches:
And simply enable "Enable emuNAND" and "Disable signature checks" again and press start.
You can also enable the autoboot in the configuration right away.
>>Clean your shit
Are you deleting the webkithax thing from your sd?
Also erase your theme. If you have menuhax or any remains from it, browserhax won't work. Change to a plain color then change back.
Otherwise 9.2 browserhax is shit. It blows my mind that it's HARDER to enter HBL in fucking 9.2 than 10.3.
>chmm2 doesn't work for some reason
>howling gets deleted if I enter the eshop
life is suffering
>Otherwise 9.2 browserhax is shit. It blows my mind that it's HARDER to enter HBL in fucking 9.2 than 10.3.
if you use browserhax to enter hbl every time, then that's true, but that would also mean you are a dribbling retard
you use browserhax to get something better set up so you only need to do it once
and in my experience, 9.2 entry points aside from browserhax have been much, much more stable than 10.3 ones. i crashed upward of 50% of the time using ironhax or oot3dhax on 10.3, i've only crashed once in about 50 boots since downgrading and using oot3dhax or menuhax.
Buying SD cards off eBay is nigger-tier stupid. A huge amount of them are fakes that will report the correct size to Windows but start throwing errors when you begin filling them up.
Just double checking. I've believed random Anon words before and it kinda fucked me in the ass regarding CFW.
Because I actually unlinked by NNID by following an old guide. I repaired that shit but Im scared ill unlink it again.
Im a special kind of idiot.
Alright, it seems I was worried about nothing. Ill start downloading all that shit.
Good luck, here are the correct MD5s for it:
MD5 (cetk) = b4721a5b6105c2d33a082e22f3f2a2f4
MD5 (firmware.bin) = 0371e33842a8c3c30b26f2868025d0c7
MD5 (slot0x11key96.bin) = af6dd85a583dbe1471661d2f3b90df15
Okay good. You now have a CFW set up, but that is not the EmuNAND you want. Use EmuNAND Tool (PC Program) and restore all 4 of those NANDs to EmuNAND. Alternatively, you can use EMUNAND9 to write EmuNAND.bin to EmuNAND. Just rename the file and put it in SD:/EmuNAND9
Anyway, do either of those, keep loading up RxTools and eventually one of them should show all of your games.
Oh yeah, also make sure that your large Nintendo 3DS ID folder is on the SD card, too. (If it wasn't there, maybe you should double-check that your current NAND doesn't already read that folder)
By the way, we're not entirely done after you get it reading, so report back when that works.
>still using bulky SD instead of mircoSD
>not using adapters
That doesn't matter. It could be a 16GB card. Or it could be a 32GB card. You wont know until shit just starts fucking up on itself, unless you test it to make sure it can actually store 128GB.
>"the ropbin is ready"
you mentioned is something that should come up on the first setup (which I just repeated)
It gives me the same shit though
I suspect I should replace my brew.3dsx, then again starting the homebrew over the browser was no problem so far and I think that uses that application aswell
I'll try replacing that now
>System settings. Data management. 3DS software. Delete it there.
i mean te ones used for installation.
They just sit there in cias folder taking up space.
FBI installs them fine but deletion is a problem.
Other than looking for the programs I have no idea what most of what you said means. I think I know where my ORIGINAL nand is which is good, but what do I look for to find my current nand
You're a fucking idiot and seriously and seriously get the fuck out with your homestuck memes. MSPA was actually good until that bullshit and I'm pretty sure it's banished to /co/ like it was in 2009/10 when that shit started.
Adapters add another layer and some more time to load, they slow it down and if you have anywhere near a respectable card the adapter trashes the times. Not to mention SD cards are fucking cheap, 64GB UHS is $25 with 95 mbps read/write.
If you're going to meme like that and troll just fucking sage or kill yourself.
That's fine but it's not suggested, AT ALL. Cheap/ripoff SD cards is a serious problem through most retailers, adding another risk and getting them second hand is just a bad deal. If you want 64GB get the Transcend while it's still on sale through amazon, if you want a larger SD card just google actual tests (real autists actually run super specific tests on these) and buy one in the top 5 that's a decent price.
I've got a shitload of microSD cards. I didn't pay anything for my 128GB card since it came free with my phone from a reputable manufacturer. I'm just letting you know that you probably got fucked, which is the same thing that you'd see if you Googled "eBay fake SD"
Shit's installed to the SD, like I assumed it was supposed to be since they're just regular .cias and not core system files like the AGP_FIRM is.
...right? I could be wrong, guide wasn't super clear, but that's what it seemed like.
I'm on O3DS, so ReiNand is a no-go I just found out.
All my roms are on sysnand and emunand. No dice on any of em, running from either one. Seems other people were able to get CakesFW working, too... I don't know, man. Castlevania is starting to look like a pipe dream.
You do realize that a MicroSD -> SD adapter is nothing more than physically connecting some metal pins to other metal pins right? It's literally the same shit just in a different format to begin with.
Pin 9 is completely unused on SD. There's literally zero loss.
>Adapters add another layer and some more time to load, they slow it down and if you have anywhere near a respectable card the adapter trashes the times.
now i know you are genuinely retarded
I propose this image to be the next OP image.
(I'm done eating, woo! Dinner was great. Seafood and whatnot.)
https://gbatemp.net/threads/emunand-tool-release-and-support-thread.359239/ this is emunand tool. it will let you create and write "restore points" to/from your EmuNAND.
Take your original NAND and flash it to emunand with this tool. Copy your large Nintendo 3DS folder onto the SD card and launch RxTools.
All your apps should hopefully be there. If they are, we can start getting FBI on emunand and get FBI/autoboot working, then update emunand.
Since everywhere i checked it's only on .3ds, i went and uploaded the .cia of MHX with the v9 patch, if anyone's interested.
I'm giving up on this. I seem to be the only one with that issue, googling it doesn't help me either.
Either use an older version of EmuNAND Tool or flash EmuNAND.bin back on using EMUNAND9 instead.
How big is that NAND.bin? Rightclick>properties and tell me the filesize, in bytes.
>Adapters add another layer and some more time to load
Do you believe that an adapter for a micro sd in a fucking 3DS actually changes any speed? You're literally a paranoid moron.
Today could be a possible day. They have maintenance for every fucking 3DS Nintendo game and then the usual eShop downtime.
Alright so I've now gone up to the point where I dumped sysNAND to NAND.bin and have moved that file to a safe place. So now have I got the backup I need to safely stop?
I could keep going but I am working on a shitty 4 GB card right now and until I get a better one I don't really want to go further until I can get a better card.
>howling gets deleted if I enter the eshop
I also have this issue.
For some reason it doesn't happen on my other 3DS though. It's bizarre.
Quick question, I finished installed cakes, boot manager and everything works now.
But I'm skeptical of this part.
>You may also want to update your emuNAND to be newer than your sysNAND
>If you're on an O3DS, you can just go to System Settings from emuNAND and update
Can I safely do this?
Here are the first links:

Sounds like a good dump to me. No, the tool does not let you select a destination: It automatically detects the destination.
(Maybe you should use the latest version if you didn't get EmuNAND Tool from the source I linked? I think the fact your SD card is named "EmuNAND9SD" is making it difficult for the older version to read EmuNAND.)
But anyway, if that doesn't work, you can always just use EmuNAND9 to flash the NAND.bin onto emunand. Just rename NAND.bin to EmuNAND.bin and put it in the SD:/EmuNAND9/ folder
click the 3ds homebrew spoiler then find CHMM.
Regardless of adapter shit which was clearly bait.
64GB SD Transcend (2nd best) UHS-1: Read/write 95Mbps - $25
64GB microSD Sandisk Extreme Pro Read 95 Write 90 - $35
SD is the better option for o3ds.
Nigger, I know you're baiting but how the fuck do you think any computer reads the data from an microSD? With an adapter. If you want to shitpost for the sake of trolling, take your candy-ass to >>>/b/
I've been trying for 45 minutes to get this piece of shit menu to do anything besides freeze. I've tried menuhax and browserhax. What else can I do besides kill myself?
>It was the new versions that didn't work but we'll see because it's in the middle of it right now
Sounds like it worked then. Remember that this is the tool you will use if you're ever worried about bricking EmuNAND. If you brick EmuNAND, flash this NAND.bin (or a future dump of it) back on using this same method, and you can unbrick it. Never touch sysnand though, because you can't flash NAND.bin the same way unless you have a physical hardmod on your system.
also yes, that's fine
How do I remove the sound of a theme when I move the cursor?
I like the theme but it has an annoying sound
You got a backup. Its fine.
You cant just simply inject it into ANOTHER card though. need to modify somethings for that. But atleast youre safe incase nintendo updates.
Yes totally fine.
If you setup your shit right, it updates normally.
Both are fine. Rei posted earlier that he won't have much time to work on the CFW due to workload though, so Im not sure how support will hold up. ATM both are perfectly fine to use.
Depends if youre using a n3ds with the old cakesFW. If thats the case, start over buddy.
o3ds is fine.
Yeah works fine.
Use YATA to modify the theme. Can remove sounds or replace em.
it literally is you're just retarded. like all you do is put some files on your sd card and run something
first of all, delete that GBA cia from your NAND. Where'd you get it from? Do you happen to know the serial? If not, you'll have to deal with black boxes on your nands until you find out what to delete
You need to install GBA games to SD and AGB_FIRM_patched to NAND. You must do this on sysnand, and emunand too if you want to use GBA in emunand. You can get AGB_FIRM_patched from the update pack thread on 3dsiso
Ah yeah, fail rate is a thing, but no worries, just keep trying if it does that.
Anyway, do you have all your games/apps back now? If you do, change your theme so you know that's emunand. Then, perform a system update (NOTE: CLOSING OUT OF EMUNAND SYSTEM SETTINGS WILL BOOT YOU BACK INTO SYSNAND. MAKE ABSOLUTE SURE YOU ARE IN EMUNAND BEFORE UPDATING: IT SHOULD SAY RX-E OR SOMETHING BEFORE FIRMWARE VERSION) </capslock>
No, find the title ID on 3dsdb.com, then delete that title through BBM or FBI. By the way, the ID needs to lose the last two digits and some of the front ones, so for Project Mirai the ID is:
But it displays on BBM as 0148C
>too lazy to make icons
>all my themes have the same icon now
>tfw it just werks
mother 3 rom i downloaded back when the fan translation patch came out. i looked through the NAND area in FBI and realized how absolutely fucked i was if i actually want to be able to delete it. i guess i know that the CIA is 32 MB so I could delete it that way.
are there finite reasons that a GBA game that is CIA won't work after installing it as a CIA?
I asked in a thread yesterday I think about it and they said up until you format the SD card (the next steps in the retard-proof guide, for me) you can simply copy/paste from the old card to the new. Is this not the case?
I got to the point where I installed emunand and had to format my card, just to realize I didn't have enough space to proceed (4gb card)
Can I just copy/paste stuff and start from the formatting bit on a new card or do I have to start again?
from system settings, my bad. just make sure it says "RX-E" or whatever before the firmware so you know you're in RxTools EmuNAND CFW, and not OFW sysnand (no way you want to update that, lol)
you have to install AGB_FIRM_patched to both NANDs, because that patches signature checking for GBA games, so you can run unofficial stuff like Mother 3
Nothing anymore, really. Hackers found the keys we need to boot 9.6+ emunand on n3DS and NTR was updated to support 10.3 too so no fear about out of region DLC either
Why do people use eshop with emuNAND?
Can you actually buy games on it?
helppp wtf is wrong with my 3ds, ive downgraded it, and now i was fixing my 3ds menuhax that broke during the downgrade and while im using browsehax the fucking thing just yellow screens and tells me there has been an error and some shit about software
Yeah I exited like an idiot (I didn't update) so now I'm just restarting and blackscreening over and over waiting to boot back into it so I can try to update.
The fail rate on however I've got this set up is abysmal
i followed the steps at: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-agb_firm-signature-patcher-gba-rom-converter.390313/
but my created game doesn't seem to work. thanks for your help though.
I remember it being no, but don't take my word for it. Theres a guide referencing card to card transfer in one of the OP guides. Im on my phone so I cant get you the link.
Old CakesFW and RXtools doesn't support it. Doing this bricks your Emunand and youll have to redo the entire emunand process.
CakesFW v.108 supports
