3DS: 9.2 (10.3 for userland / downgrade, eShop is x.x.x-28 only)
Wii U: 5.5.1 (IOSU exploit coming soon™)
Vita: 3.51 (Userland)
PS4: 1.76 (Webkit)
O3DS emuNAND can update all the way to 10.4

DOWNGRADING: http://pastebin.com/ZfA8wtA2 • http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW + http://pastebin.com/xFkRmxGn • http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
-Nintendo released the 10.4.0-29 system update.
-Ironfall was fixed in the new update but menuhax/browserhax still work
-NTR has been updated to work on 10.3 New 3DS. http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=81454121835010324331
>Is downgrading safe?
As safe as it gets. Follow guides and use the correct build(s) and you'll be fine
>So if I update to 10.4 am I screwed?
No one knows for sure. Browserhax/Menuhax still work on it but no one is sure if the new update patches memchunkhax2/sysupdater. So if you're on 10.3 and below you POSSIBLY have one shot at downgrading, because if you softbrick after the downgrade process youre forced to update to 10.4
-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.
I miss talking shit about JustPingo
Now that he is gone it's become pretty boring
What are general "What not to do" for us that made it into the promise land?
Is it safe to update game titles?
How do I go about playing online titles?
If I have to update the EmuNAND how can I do that? Also, is it fine if my sysNAND stays forever at 9.2?
Themes with audios
Which browserhax version are you guys using for O3DS 10.4? I tried the auto detection QR code, sliderhax and spider28hax, but the browser keeps kicking me back to home menu.
I downloaded the O3DS 10.4.0-29U otherapp payload and put it on the root of my SD card as well. Should it be renamed or something?

Why did you do this? You should tell people not to try until it's confirmed. I don't want to see people getting a softbrick because they stopped reading at "As safe as it gets" and tried out one of the guides just to find out 10.4 actually fixed it permanently. I know you might say they deserve it, but come on.
theres a unofficial patch for NTR. not sure if it works with legit japanese carts.
10.4 is fine for o3ds.
backup emunand and try it yourself nerd.
Heres the unofficial patch.
someone made a thread WAY ahead of bump limit. the idiot didnt even update the OP correctly so someone made another thread. Both of those threads reached bump limit so now we have this one
was that hard?
to everyone already on rx10.3 just dont upgrade now pls. why need to be eager on rx10.4?
>As safe as it gets
is not enough. just wait until we have an official confirmation from the nerds
They aren't hard at all to convert.
Get simpleciaconverter >get the nchh or whatever it is > put in on your sd > use rx tools to generate xorpads >put the xorpads in the xorpad folder > convert from 3ds to cia
>Slime Mori Mori: Dragon Quest 3
Thanks, found it in the archive.
I can't seem to make Box Boy work, though.
Set up NTR properly (tested with Hyrule demo and Fates) using this 000400000017F800 and the Japanese language plugin.
I love custom cwavs but whenever I try to make them they sound awful.
I made a webm with this connection cloning thing I have going on. Maybe now someone can make sense of it?
Somewhat related, but my DS profile uses the sysnand profile name when accessed on either nand.
>want to get in black cats
>if you beg you and the guy that gave you a code get banned
Maybe one day I actually get it all set up as I have heard its good for wii games as well.
But I never fucking play on my wii after getting it all set up for running isos and shit.
And complain about it.
3DS files are bit-by-bit copies of a game cartridge. CIA files are usually converted from 3DS files and are of questionable structure, aside from legit CIAs of course. They can have hacks, cryptofixing, and all sorts of other crap bundled in. Meanwhile the 3DS files are usually confirmable through a file hash. 3DS files are usually the first to be released as well. So if you're going to archive something it's better to archive the 3DS file since you can always easily convert it to a CIA file if you need one, while the converse isn't necessarily true.
Because sometimes it's easier. I know I've been going through my pastebin and slowly converting the .3ds files I added, and updating and removing those .3ds links. Almost all of the files in my pastebin are .cia.
I hate to shill, but if you can't, here's a pastebin I update periodically http://pastebin.com/SYxBj16f
What region? The 3dsiso one I used worked for me. i just can't seem to find that exact one again.
Fuck it. I said I wouldn't rehost shit but here you go. try this https://mega.nz/#!D1dT1KyY!M-TZdlYz17bRh2rpVvsnJRF57OlTleZXYYrWw8fAc_I
fucking retards man
Just Ironfall, at least for now. The scary part is that Nintendo seemingly has the possibility to enforce updates remotely. This isn't really a problem for CFW (if it gets to be a problem devs will find a bypass), but it's a problem for future exploits.
MEMCHUNKHAX2/SYSUPDATER CONFIRMED NOT TO WORK ON 10.4.0-29
How's this theme?
Music is currently
Unless anyone can think of something better.
I'm trying to make a theme but the music plays fine until 2:15 and repeats the same 2 seconds until it starts over again. It plays just fine on the YATA preview. How can I fix this?
Tonight's discovery: having a fuckton of eshop purchases combined with a fuckton of shit installed equals not knowing which fucking titleid is the correct game you're trying to dump. I've narrowed it down to 15 DIFFERENT TITLES OH BOY. Nothing to do but build each .cia and see which is which I guess.
>only use public trackers
>still try to seed
>could be higher but I had to delete some in-demand stuff due to HDD space running low (brother asked for a lot of movies, but they had a lot of seeders anyway

Worst part is I can't actually find my client's installation. I literally have to load a torrent file to make it start.
Pic related is my statistics.
yeah thats what i was thinking that one of the devs would fix it so they cant do that anymore, although it doesnt help for the people who actually need the exploits.
good new that they all dont need the update, means i can update tomorrow when the gateway loader comes out
What the fuck, it's actually installing. I don't know if I just accidentally downloaded the wrong file or what but thanks a bunch man. Now I just need to see if it works in game
I used to have a blackcats account but I never used it and it got closed for inactivity. Any idea if they have record of me still and if there's a way to get my account back?
I have really good stats on BTN and decent stats on what.cd, passthepopcorn, animebytes, and gazellegames.
>tfw you're not a waitfag/latefag
I guess cell9 cares about that name a lot, he has created the Twitter account "codename:NTR" in 2010 after all.
It's /pol/'s fault. That dumb meme reached even to mainstream journalism now.
>STILL no 10.3/4 Rxtools for N3DS
>Cakes and Reinand have it
Did anyone make a Osaka theme yet?
Nope, you're fucked.
Did you do a NAND backup first? If so, you might be able to do a system recovery, which will put you at 10.4, find a working entrypoint (Does OoT still work in 10.4?) and do a NAND restore to 10.3. At which point you could try downgrading again.
Or you can try punching the info you have into http://www.3dsdb.com/
I did it with the .3ds files that FunkyCIA dumped and it gave me the title IDs for many of them. The ones it didn't I'm wary about. It also doesn't work for, for instance, DSiWare titles.
I am using Cakes 10.4 and confirm it working. N3DS EU.
The NTR over here works as well.
so you cant downgrade if you update to 10.4 anymore.
what about 10.3 and below now? what options are there or what can we expect soon?
I'd like a N3DS XL with IPS screens but if downgrading is dead its no biggie either i guess. Although the IPS screens look really good compared to everything thats not an IPS n3DS XL.
>I'm still only playing my legit games
you can update
Hykem's exploit still works on 5.5.1
You dont like anything here? just weed through the anime shit and jrpgs
you had 3 weeks no excuses. read the op. you have literally one shot
Yeah, that's what I did. So I just have to sift through the ~15 or so titles I didn't find there.
I think some of them are stupid shit like nintendo video or demos/trailers for shit.
Weird. The titleid is right; have you tried undercasing the F?
Also, try running it through NTR without the language emulation plugin.
Anyway, I'm going to try installing it to my o3DS and see how things go.
UGH Fucking Niptendo mjust let me steal your games GODDAMMIT
So does the "outrunning the update nag" thing for browserhax still work? Because that looks to be my last hope.
Im honestlty so fucking depressed guys, I feel like Im locked out of paradise here, but I can peek inside and see you guys having a blast.
Is WiiU going to be backed before Bayonetta is out, and will firmware spoofing allow me to die load her and play her while I wait for EmuNand to come out?
So I flipped the wifi switch off on my o3ds, nintendo can't force my sysnand to go to 10.4 right? my emu is still 10.3 since I see no reason to update, but now I'm paranoid that they'll somehow fuck over my sysnand even though I never boot into it.
i'm asking about n3DS XL 10.3 and below. can we expect to do any downgrades on these fuckers anytime soon?
i ordered 3 n3DS XLs and they were all TN trash so not really worth keeping
what say you of my new fancy shmancy theme?
To be safe, I would say stay on 5.5.0. There's a pretty high chance that the exploit will work on 5.5.1, but there's no actual guarantee until we know how to kernel exploit works.
We did just receive the keys very recently, though. Just wait until the end of February.
None of the VC stuff I sumped here: https://mega.nz/#F!akBmFLLS!8Bno6OUwodBJMQ6nSysSSg were on that site, you may be able t find some of the same ones in there, though I only have 6 of them that weren't on 3dsdb
I've got an old 3ds on 8.1-6 or whatever and I've tried the guide on gbatemp and the retard guide on here but to no avail.
For the gbatemp one I simply could not load rxTools through the browser; I got an error every time.
Trying to do it with sliderhax through the guide in the OP brings the same error no matter how many times I try.
Ideas would be appreciated
sliderhax/browserhax only works on 9.0 and above
what is youre full 3ds firmware version? are you sure youre files are in the right place? did you try clearing cookies and/or initializing save data in the browser?
Actually, we know for sure that it works on 5.5.1, Hykem's key leak picture shows it running on 5.5.1. We also know that 5.5.1 only changed the browser and didn't introduce remote blocking functionality: https://github.com/yellows8/wiiu_browserhax_fright#browser-https-urls
Having that said, avoiding the update to 5.5.1 should be your test case for update blocking.
So who wants to test some .cias for me?
Should be Picross e, (US) region.
Should be picross e2, (US) region.
okay but for real, you CAN attempt to downgrade from 10.3 or lower, but you will need OoT or CN if you didn't already set up menuhax.
But even then, you have only one shot to downgrade successfully. If you softbrick, you will have to update to 10.4 anyway.
Well fuck me, I'm a dumbass. Sorry for the shit information.
initalize save data/clear cookies
make sure you files are place correctly. try to launch the rxtools website. try the alternatives as well like 3ds.reboot.ms or http://dukesrg.no-ip.org/3ds/go2.html
my SD should come tomorrow.
I've got a downgraded 3DS with a 4gig card, and I'm looking to make the transition so I can start pirating games.
Do I just format the card and copy-paste the files, then start downloading them RX tools and that's it?
oh right I just checked deadcafe's code.
what's going on is that the exploit function isn't getting called. everything else works or it would throw a more specific error.
I have no idea what the fuck they did to fix it but it's worth REing the patch I think. Or just using a different kernel object.
Yes, it's random. Get it, test it. if it isn't, return it.
Even their limited ones, which is just fucking unacceptable.
The first MH4 edition I got was TN and I returned it immediately.
What. The. Fuck.
Wasn't the entire initial campaign based around the fact that it has 3D capabilities in wide viewing angles?
Why the fuck would you throw a TN screen on something like that.
I have an IPS, but that's retarded.
Search unlinking emunand and sysnand on youtube, you'll see you're supposed to remove your Sd card before formatting sysnand at a certain point. So, yeah emunand should be fine if you follow a vid tutorial.
what part of the process can softbrick? just trying to figure out how big the risk would be.
and for anyone wondering why TN screens are the nigger edition, pic related. it was even worse irl when i had the chance to compare
Don't downgraders realize they were also latefags?
If I buy an brand new n3DS tomorrow, would I still have a chance of getting CFW if I block Nintendo's sites?
Yes, and it's amazing that you're uploading these. I used to have the .3ds versions of these files (including the club nintendo ones...) and desu I wish I would've converted them...
I'm pretty sure most of the gamestop hyrule ones are IPS, bought one a couple of weeks ago intending to keep returning it if I got TN and both the top and bottom screen were IPS.
Too bad they come with 9.9 so you can't downgrade them now kek
Well, as long as amazon's return policy stays the way it is, I couldn't care less. I'll simply return it as many times as I have to.
But it really is a shitty move.
It's exactly as you said, super stable 3D is super useless with TN since you have to keep it in an angle just like the o3DS to get proper colors.
Well, most people won't notice it until they see the actual difference. That's why they don't get enough complains to trigger a change, I think.
Yes, I formatted my sysnand and it was still on 9.2 same with when I formatted emunand to relink my NNID to it, stayed on 10.3 (that was before 10.4 It'll probably not force you to 10.4 though.) But yeah, sysnand stays perfectly fine on 9.2 And now that 10.4's out you probably won't even need to format emunand for eshop access unless you're updating it to 10.4 anyways.
Yes. You need Cubic Ninja or Ocarina of Time. If OoT, you need a way to flash the save payload on there, either through a hacked 3DS or a save dongle like action replay powersaves. CN relies on pure QR code though.
Any CN cart over $70, you're better off just getting a sky3ds
but anyway: even if you get into HBL, you have one shot to downgrade to 9.2. If you fuck that one chance up, you're forced to update to 10.4
I used the google DNS (184.108.40.206 primary, 220.127.116.11. secondary) and I was able to access browserhax and am now downgrading my 3DS.
Although, the 3DS was at firmware 9.5 before I did it, but browserhax and everything is still up, so as long as your 3DS isn't at version 10.4 you should be fine.
DO OLD 3DS USERS NEED slot0x11key96.bin
THAT'S N3DS ONLY RIGHT?
ALSO WHERE CAN I FIND slot0x11key96.bin
Why do gba games I've installed work only when I'm in sysNAND? When I load them in emuNAND they give me an error.
A minor complaint but still curious why that is happening.
Also I'm kind of pissed off to find that the 3DS could natively play game boy advance games, yet withheld them from the store so they could sell them on the wii u.
Well fuck those jews.
wait wait no fuck no, i can't read.
9.9 and higher started blocking web browser access if there's a new update out. my initial post still stands (try browserhax first i guess, but if it won't let you then yeah you have to get a hack-enabled cart)
Okay, I now tried everything I could think of.
Tried to see the manual without NTR running: "Software could not be launched, please download it again."
NTR enabled and pressing on the manual: "SD Card has been removed, press home."
Tried re-installing it with NTR enabled from the beginning as well.
All that's left would be using another CIA installer or installing it on NAND.
thanks anon, i'm gonna give it a shot later this week. i'm not gonna be too butthurt if it doesnt work. IPS screen is more important to me than CFW but its not like i'm not like my backlog is gonna shrink anytime soon anyway
installing my first actual 2GB game so might as well give some smalltalk
what's the point of ftPony/FTP-3DS again, is it just so you don't need to take the SD card out
i have no idea, and i even own one of those lol (i bought it used on 10.3)
i think someone mentioned that it was earlier in this thread (or previous thread) but don't take my word for it.
Anyone has the links for the 2nd Taiko 3ds game and the DLC? They got lost amidst the shitposting of the previous 10 threads.
Yeah, once your sysnand is formatted you'll have to pop your sd back in obviously, let it create the data, open theme changing pick a random theme, return to no theme, then reinstall browserhax. Then you can have customs in emunand.
Okay /hbg/, please help me out here.
I managed to finally get into HBL again using Browserhax on 10.4, went to Menuhax Manager and installed it again.
But when I boot up the system holding L, it doesn't take me to HBL. It just goes to the home menu like normal. What is up with this shit?
Can anyone link me the downgrade check tool. Googling for it is pain since I get shit that is ancient as fuck about 4.0 and shit.
I just wanna know for sure N3DS I am prepping for the full frontal is ready for it.
thank you anon, I was looking for the smt stuff
No fucking wonder. Many different places are saying Menuhax still works on O3DS 10.4, and then there are people saying it doesn't.
Fuck me, it was already hard enough to get back into HBL with just Browserhax alone.
im having a problem, im following the retard guide and am to the step where you install hbloader and bbm
I install both cia files using fbi but they wont show up in my emunand??
what am I doing wrong
Danke Schon, cig nig. I'll get taiko from there.
To all you anons who want a hard Pokemon Sapphire (Star Sapphire) and want some nice tits for your May.
There ya go sir.
So, I installed the Box Boy 2 CIA on my o3DS... right away, I noticed that the banner was messed up.
I redownloaded it to a separate file and checked both of their md5 sums and they were the same... I don't know if the downloads both corrupted or neither did.
Either way this is VERY annoying.
It does. Go on the Browserhax page, use the QR code, or use the spider28hax link.
Not sure if the otherapp/ropbin payload for 10.4 is necessarily needed because none of these cucks have a direct answer yet.
I have only ever had one LCD screen in my life (and still have), so I don't really know what differentiates TN and IPS, so which N3DS has which?
The bottom right looks delicious.
DO NOT UPDATE. GATEWAY 3DS DEVS ARE RELEASING 10.3 COMPATIBILITY SOON. WHEN THEY DO, ITLL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE SOMEKNE REVERSE ENGINEERS IT FOR NON-GATEWAY USE.
So as long as I find an n3DS that's below 9.9, I'm fine?
wow. people from my country are offering $10 to $17 to hack 3ds.
Does anyone know what those $60 refurbished 2DS from Nintendo's website come with in regards to system firmware?
Do they update it to the latest shit or what? I have a friend who wants to buy one soon, but I have a feeling he's officially joined the latefags.
Where did this meme come from? I've never had gateway brick and I've had it since launch
Don't take out your SD card and don't format in system settings.. you're supposed to use TinyFormat
Why do people keep saying this stupid shit? You know it's the reason that everyone gets a fucked up NNID, right? Just prevent it instead of doing the extra steps to fix it later.
Bit the bullet for you guys, all's good on 3DS XL.
FREE GIDEO VAMES
If anybody got more mega links post them ITT
oh sorry i thought you meant in terms of downgrading
10.4 does nothing for emunand users, except be aware that all it really does right now is block you from running specific games (like ironfall invasion)
literally no benefit over 10.3 until games start requiring it. by that point, we'll probably have workarounds
>I didn't even backup it.
>I just wanna know for sure N3DS I am prepping for the full frontal is ready for it.
If you're talking about deadcafe, it doesn't matter. People who got fails on it were able to downgrade. There's seriously no point.
Y-you went all the way back just to get them for me.
>Take out the sd card after it crash-reboots and power on again, then pray it actually worked.
I downgraded about 10 3DSs new and old and none of them had that issue, even the ones with autobooting menuhax setup.
I suddenly remembered i'm not in /buyfag/ avert your christian eyes anon
Yeah, I haven't found a US Smash Controller cia, only EU and seems like that doesn't work for US Wii U.
Would be nice if some anon with BlackCats account upload it to Mega or somewhere else.
Just a request, can you maybe just constantly update 1 pastebin instead of moving to a different one? It makes it easier to check back by bookmarking it whenever there's an update.
Thanks a lot for the hard work!
I had a 9.9 3DS (didn't update for a few months) and I went through the upgrade process. Got through everything okay. Setup and unlinked my sysNAND and emuNAND and went to update the emuNAND to 10.3.
Now I can't access the rxtools or emuNAND and the system boots into sysNAND 10.4.0-29.
The update must have happened minutes before I finished. This is the first time I've put CFW on my 3DS. Am I fucked? Thing doesn't seem to be bricked but am I gonna have to go through this long ass process again?
Can I inject an old sysnand backup into emunand or would I have to start over completely if I wanted to switch back to that NAND and get a save back after formating?
>Is it safe to update game titles?
>How do I go about playing online titles?
turn on WiFi
>If I have to update the EmuNAND how can I do that?
>Also, is it fine if my sysNAND stays forever at 9.2?
>In terms of downgrading, no: You still only have one shot to do it.
I like those odds
>I did that shit and it's kind of annoying how sysNAND is literally empty
kek, that's normal and part of unlinking
the thing you fix is how you can't do any online stuff on emuNAND if you didn't use TinyFormat
DOES ANYONE HAVE A DOWNLOAD FOR
I HAVE slot0x11key.bin
I NEED 96, THANKS FOR THE HELP
>system format, if you don't actually care about what you had
It's a completely new 3DS, so it should be fine, right? Or should I still format?
>use a 4gb for accuracy
I've got one here. How does using a 4gb one help?
Because it seems pretty dead. But eh might post it there later.
The UPDATED Pastebin isn't even mine.
That guy just copied the shit I copied.
And now we copy the pastebin updates from eachother I guess.
Two people managing the same list is better though.
So bookmark either, they'll both be updated.
Yes you can. if you format sysnand normally you'll just have to format emunand normally and setup your NNID again then reinject your emunand.bin backup and restore any crap from your sd you lost. it's not complicated.
i don't really think it helps, but it worked for me.
format your new n3ds, use the default card that came with it.
use julian's sysupdater and you should be good to go: it managed to downgrade my brother's n3dsxl and my non-XL n3ds. both USA, both new, both factory sd (micro for non-xl) cards
>every 3DS game for the cost of one
>if you format sysnand normally you'll just have to format emunand normally and setup your NNID again then reinject your emunand.bin backup and restore any crap from your sd you lost. it's not complicated.
That's "fixing it". If you use TinyFormat in the first place you literally don't have to do any of that. Your NNID in emuNAND just works.
It's dead only because people keep using pastebins, which is getting more and more confusing. There's just too much stuff there now, and having all of the links in a place that anyone could edit would be a better idea, I think
True, though I just did it normally and 'fixed it' without any real issues. Either method works the only reason I never used tinyformat is because I didn't know whether it'd be in sysnand or emunand due to HBL and ctrbootmanager's looping making it hard to tell whether you'd be modifying sysnand or emunand. The fixing it method was a lot easier/riskfree to me.
Wii U CFW is on the way. I'd just wait it out.
<turn on 3DS
>launch tinyformat with ctrbootmanager's file browser
I'm not sure how you managed to overcomplicate that.
eshop, friends list, etc.
Yes. Anything is possible. Don't limit yourself.
What shit? The stuff that breaks is stuff requires you to be logged into an NNID. I shouldn't have to explain this seven different ways.
What's getting fucked up? If you're unlinked you just use CHMM2 from emuNAND and it should work fine.
Emunand on 10.4 working perfectly fine on O3DS.
Is there a lot of shit that can go wrong with making themes? I want to make some and potentially use them. I'm just curious if its something that's easy to screw up and have them not work properly of if the process is mostly idiot-proof?
Alternatively, if I have to reformat to switch back to the old NAND, can I delete the second folder on the backup savely?
I think that's the main reason why the old emunand might have been fucked, because after setting it up I had 3 folders under Nintendo 3ds
I think so, when I booted to emuNAND before the content I had bought on eshop showed up. In sysNAND they don't. They're not showing up now so I assume I'm in sys.
I have backups of my original 3DS files on the SD card before I tried to hack it so I'd like to think I can just wipe the card and put all that stuff back to at least put the thing back to normal until this stuff works with 10.4.
Ok, this is PISSING me off.
For the life of me I can't get my FunkyCIA Box Boy 2 download to work on ANY of my other 3DS. I'm pretty sure the download is fucked because the banner is missing a few elements to it.
a lot of people use shit audio and/or images
I'm not sure how the creation process actually works but I've seen so many themes that are almost perfect that I'm probably going to just sit down and figure it out sometime soon
What.. I even edited my guide and put a big NOTE telling you not to do it in emuNAND... Where'd you hear that it was for formatting emuNAND?
Your NNID? I don't think we're on the same page here
please stop replying to me.
No, it's so good at what it does that it cucks rxTools
I never used a guide for unlinking aside from a youtube video, but when someone in one of the Hbgs suggested tinyformat they said to format emunand instead of sysnand. Guess it's a good thing I didn't listen to them.
I think something about it being one of the first CFW but didn't support CIA and then people worked around it anyway. Unsure.
That is just about as bad as using public rom headers, except maybe even worse because they're public system headers. You'd be setting a huge red ban flag for Nintendo because multiple instances of the same console ID are connected at the same time.
One console per SecureInfo. There are legit shared donor files online (search SecureInfo or SecureInfo_A on 3dsiso), but they've been used so they don't get you eShop access, there's no real point in using those over yellows8's method.
I don't know what Nintendo's doing with them, I guess they're linking it to the console's console-unique encryption keys?
I'm guessing it's either that or FunkyCIA needs an update. That doesn't explain how the Hyrule Warriors demo was dumped, and is working for others though...
No need. I downloaded and checked 5 separate times - all the same md5.
I'm sorry, folks. I tried.
