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
N3DS emuNAND can update all the way to 10.4 with Gateway/Cakes/Rei, rxTools still MIA
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 (N3DS Browserhax confirmed dead on 10.4 though)
-NTR has been updated to work on 10.3 New 3DS. https://github.com/44670/BootNTR/raw/master/release/BootNTR.cia
>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.
your best bet now is to wait for the scene to figure out the cause of softbricks and patch it out of the downgrader
or at the very least wait until 10.4 KICKASS payloads are out and set one up in case you're forced to recover to 10.4
Let me see if I got this right:
Before seeing if rx-e-10.4 works fine I have to EXTRACT my current rx-e-10.3 emunand with https://gbatemp.net/threads/emunand-tool-release-and-support-thread.359239/ and then update through system settings.
If everything works fine, that's cool I stay there.
If not, I inject it back, with the games being fine.
Sorry for asking the obvious, I want to make really sure.
depends on the CIA, you can run region-locked CIAs with freemultipatcher or NTR
no NNID is necessary for online play
>what is bait
yes, triple check that you're in emunand before updating
the update may be downloaded, use freemultipatcher or NTR to block it
restore your emunand backup
Late to the 10.4 party.
Was only Ironhax and downgrading broken? Will muh GW still work?
Okay, so I just got access to CTRBootManager and the guide is telling me to go into emuNAND(Hold L on boot, release L and press rxTools). Problem is if I hold L and release it I either get taken to CTRBootManager or the system just boots normally, and I can't find rxTools on either. I know the guide is supposed to be retard proof but could anyone clarify what I'm missing?
>Finally got an AGS-101 GBA SP
>All the flash carts for it are shit that can't save or expensive as fuck
Is it even worth keeping around?
there's no softbrick recovery to 10.3 anymore, so there's no reason not to wait for (a) the software to stabilize or at LEAST (b) 10.4 kickass payloads that you can set up in advance so if you fuck up and have to recover to 10.4, you still have a way to launch any new exploits that come out
For reference, this is what I get on CTRBootManager, don't see rxTools anywhere.
also, ntrcardhax could eventually become a thing on 10.3, it probably won't work on 10.4 though
for what reason
EVERYTHING says to update to at least 5.0, preferably 5.2 or 5.3.2
I meant 5.4
5.4 Loadiine v1 and v2 has been available for a few days now, although it needs Smash Bros to work.
Loadiine v4 for 5.4 is private atm.
I hope none of you are listening to the retards false-reporting that Memchunkhax 2 works on 10.4.
The only reason MCH2 works on CFW is the firmware.bin file most CFWs use: This file is the 3DS's NATIVE_FIRM/kernel, which CFW patches to load to avoid incompatibility issues with changed offsets.
O3DS firmware.bin files are 9.2/9.6 as a general rule, whereas N3DS 10.4-compatible firmware.bins are 10.2, which would obviously still have the unpatched kernel exploit.
tl;dr don't believe gbatemp's retarded lies
iosu is due before february, anyone who says IN february doesn't understand that hykem is bad at english and meant that his vacation got extended not that the release would be delayed
iosu will enable nearly everything on everything, but there's still a possibility you can brick if you fuck up and forget to launch the exploit after rebooting and instead launch a custom title apparently
Is there any reason why fucking DLC won't show up in Theatrhythm Curtain Call? I'm 100% sure it's the same reason because I got it from the same thread the US version of Theatrhythm Curtain Call was in.
set up tubehax dns and see if you're browser blocked, though you probably are
if you are, you'll need oot3d and a powersaves dongle or cubic ninja
once you have userland hax set up, you can attempt a downgrade. but you shouldn't, at least not yet. wait for the software to stabilize and for 10.4 payloads to come out, then if you're in a hurry set up a 10.4 payload in advance in case you fuck up the downgrade and softbrick.
smashhax is difficult to use and i don't recommend it for randoms
these links should be working again, if not there's another thread by asia81 or something with basically the same content
i assume you mean mch2 is dead on 10.4
anyone who expected otherwise was retarded
but what i'm saying is if he's a retard and can't wait for softbricking to get sorted out and wants to downgrade anyway, it would be prudent to set up a 10.4 userland payload in advance in case he's forced to recover to 10.4

I had some fun doing this.
I was here posting a long time ago about a "Nostalgia Version". Basically, texture and music/sfx hack. Includes better challenge and all that. Far from finished, just started.
Are you guys sure it's safe to update emuNAND to 10.4? Nintendo is well aware about how we are doing this shit
>update emuNAND to 10.4
>everything seems fine
>two weeks after 3ds bricks out of nowhere
>10.4 comes with a Bricker that triggers after some time being installed in non-sysNAND
>the time is to fish most of the people that hacked the 3ds
Where do I put this again?
And what do I put as filename?
Can i use two different SD cards for my 3DS?
One will have my original games and save files, no Homebrew or anything in there. Can i switch between them freely? Or do i have to do something extra?
>oh yeah i forgot about that
So there is still a chance for me to buy a n3DS XL, install themehax through browser hax and just wait put until it's safe to downgrade?
>install RXtools for custom themes
>install a .cia someone posted here with a "theme megapack"
>doesn't show up in my theme list

I just want so cool themes
I was on 9.2 following the guide for CFW and I got RXTools installed.
I tried to boot up Emunand but my 3DS hung on a black screen for 5 minutes, so I decided to power off.
Then the RXTools page didn't work, so I checked my 3DS.
Turns out, I am now on 10.4.
Got it, then again, these threads are absolutely kickass
i don't know why you would want this anon from the previous thread, but here you go
i did all i could, but only being able to modify vertex data limits your options a lot
includes overworld and in-battle models, the former looking much better than the latter because of reasons
works on OR and AS alike, all regions, you can just run it with layeredfs or build it into a rom's romfs
i don't care, go nuts
Sorry for being retarded, but what's autoexit? Which one should I install?
>using office space as a comparison
You're alright in my book, smug poster.
can't post that shit in a blue board
you have to decompress the files it goes in with GARCtool and pack them back in to make it work
otherwise look for it in 3dsiso
Wait so my old 3ds on rxtools can update to 10.4?
I just have to make sure from multiple sources before it messes my shit up.
Does that mean online works?
If I didnt update would i still be able to go online with games? just not eshop?
Fuck no thats too scary, is this 10.4 shit confirmed or what. When did 10.4 come out. I followed the retard guide so im not sure what rxtools i have, think its 3.0. How has it been confirmed? What emunand tool? Is it easy to back up and restore? wouldn't i lose menuhax? or does updating in emu9 not effect the system update?
So I just got done unlink in my NAND's, but after the system format when I try to reinstall menuhax via browser has all I get is this screen, no option to install menuhax. How fucked am I here?
I installed CHHM's Cia and now this happens when I try to use it
Never mind,some of the urls have an extra character that invalidates them , but they still work removing it.
Why are these characters there?
So, question. I just got a Wii U refurbished from Nintendo. I'm not sure what firmware version it's on, but it's likely <5.5.1 because it shipped before 5.5.1 did. I'm honestly afraid to plug it in or turn it on for fear that it might update to 5.5.1 as a result.
My question is, is there a way to set Tubehax DNS while offline on the Wii U, so that I never have to worry about it updating?
I updated one of my O3DS to see if I could downgrade in 10.4, My N3DS the one that I mainly use had the DNS thing to block updates, but so I could still go online. They streetpassed and it tried to update the emunand that I had. Be careful, do not allow updated 10.4s to streetpass with you, I guess it passes the update to you even if you are using the the DNS blocker.
>tfw updated rxtools to 10.4 and bricked my 3ds
Thanks a lot assholes.
Here. Not only can't I install menuhax, but I can't go into CTRBootManager after unlinking my NAND's either. Is this normal? How do I go into my emuNAND now? I followed the guide to a T, I have no idea what happened here
too much falseflagging
in your first time network setup you can specify dns in advanced settings before committing the internet settings, it shouldn't connect before you save your connection
rumor is it implements browser blocking similar to 9.9+ in 3ds
No Im not updating my sysnand , I'M TALKING ABOUT my emunand, CAN I UPDATE IT. Im on fucking 10.3 in emu9 with rxtools on my old 3ds. In the op it says I CAN update it. So should I? When i update it, will i be able to do the same shit I can do on 10.3? like go into the eshop?
>GIVE ME ATTENTION
>GIVE ME ATTENTION
So has anyone here actually been able to use browserhax before downgrading? I can't even get the update nag to show up when I enter the DNS, instead I get a "browser cannot be used at this time" error that pops up instantly
>GIVE ME ATTENTION
>GIVE ME ATTENTION
set up tubehax dns and it won't even be able to reach their update servers
but the system should never force an update, it will just bug you that one's available if it sees one
this is unlike the wii u, which will force you to update as soon as it finds one i think
maybe but there's no reason to update to 5.5.1 when you can easily block it
it may have implemented something bad, we really just don't know yet
Hey, I'm not using the retard proof guide for no reason buddy. The guide says I just need to download another boot.3dsx to get into homebrew, but after browserhax it no longer gives me the option to install menuhax(pic related). Do I need to reinstall the starter pack?
I have a O3DS.
I downgraded it to 9.2. Without an SD, it boots perfectly. With one, it doesn't boot at all.
I've just bought a replacement SD. Do I just format it? Or am I boned since I waited to install the pirate-y things?
Yes. You need to make sure the /menuhax_manager/ folder is inside SD:/3ds/, because that's where all the homebrew loader apps are located.
You can get that folder from the starter.zip, which is hosted on smealum's 3ds webpage.
Downgrading fucked up my menuhax installation, so I'll need to connect to the Internet at least once to get the trigger, after screwing around with the SD card files yet again.
It will presumably be safe to do that though, right?
I followed the Retard's Guide, and I got all the way through it. I unlinked my NANDs and everything and it was working fine. When it came to try and install a CIA, when I try to launch the homebrew menu through the boot screen it just gives me a black top screen and red bottom screen. I've tried changing themes on both emuNand and the other one and I can't find a fix.
Anyone else have a problem like this or know a fix?
I used to be able to go into emunand but since I updated it to 10.3, nothing seems to work.
Is there a way to delete the whole partition to start from scratch ? I formatted it through emunand9 and tried again but I'm getting the exact same results.
Wait, fuck, I have to re-enter my NNID in SysNAND after updating if I want to connect to the eShop in EmuNAND right?
But how can I do it if it's asking me to update the system before using the online services?
JUST GOT ONE OF THESE BAD BOYS!!!
HOW DO I OPEN THE FUCKIN BOX GUYS?!?!?
the files inside the theme that I extracted has these. I don't see any .cia in it.
>stopped updating right around 10.3 by pure luck
>install cfw & literally everything works on the first try
>only thing left is to get Cakes & NTR running from the CtrBoot menu
>tfw last game i'll be paying for is Bravely Second to support the devs
Okay, so I now have emuNAND unliked at 9.2. Is it impossible to update to 10.3? Can I update to 10.4 or will it fuck my shit up? Took my sweet time doing this hack and Nintendo went ahead and dropped the update in the meantime.
I did it before. I updated emunand to 10.3, sysnand still remains in 9.2.
Emunand through Cakes just doesn't want to boot. I tried another way with Reinand but from here I can't make FBI install CIAs and I can't launch Decrypt9 through Rei.
I'm hitting a wall there.
>If you want to go to 9.5 on N3DS use Sysupdater with the files for that
Not the guy you were replying to but what is the success rate of this? Did this thrice and my emunand bricked all 3 times
guides for complete retards:
step 1: install ruby on rails 4.76
step 2: run this code
step 4: download sonic666.bin and rename it to 5FTZHFlPOF.kgb
Step 5: open file in editor and replace the second A with a B
Step 6: Open FTPbrony
Step 8: run russianroulette.3dz
Step 9: Drop box on the ground
Step 10: Use knive to pry open 3ds
It's not really smut but it's an anime girl. How am I supposed to play my 3DS in public and show all my bros on the football team my CFW when this comes up for like a tenth of a second?
>step 1: install ruby on rails 4.76
Does it also work with sapphire on rails 4.76?
PLS HALP G-GUYS! I'M LITERALLY DYING HERE
On a sidenote: repeatedly hitting my head with the box seems to loosen it up slightly
Hey guys. Does anyone remember Pokemon Art Academy, and the fact that they distributed templates via spotpass for a short time (kind like DoA Dimension's costume DLC)? Anyway, I've been looking everywhere for a save dump containing those templates, and can't find one anywhere (even on 3dsiso). Could anyone point me in the direction of where I can find a dump containing this DLC? Thanks!
Where can I find custom themes? I'm not competent enough to make my own and I would die for a good Chrono Trigger theme (even better if it's time travel/Epoch themed)
So as of right now, which hax still work on the New3DS 10.4?
No you dumb fuck, exif data is what tells the computer you took a phone picture sideways
Oh no I already have that and can access the DLC just fine, I was talking about having NTR period
I have 3.2 and the boot cia installed, but I don't have that specific zip. At least I know where to go if it doesn't work on 10.4
Is there a way to upload NTR screenshots somewhere directly from my 3DS to the internet or do I have to take out the SD card and extract the pics every time?
So anons, is it safe to update emunand to 10.4? I know homebrew hasn't been affected (except ironhax, but I don't give a shit about that anymore), but I just want to know if rxtools works. o3ds user here. Sorry if this has been asked, but I haven't been in /hbg/ in a while.
Ah, I won't bother yet then. I'd rather play the full experience with all the dumb side bullshit.
That shit must be hell to translate considering how much you can make everyone fuck everyone. Maybe I'll play FEA again, since I can DLC unlock all that DLC (that kind of sucks anyways, but still).
the hell? Themehax was the culprit in all this bullshit. Uninstalling it and launching Cakes through browserhax now works perfectly
I didn't manage to find the explanation anywhere in the various guides, does anyone know what I messed up ?
ONCE WE GET CONFIRMATION THAT UPDATING ON EMUNAND TO 10.4 IS SAFE
IT SHOULD REALLY BE ADDED TO THE OP
JUST MY OPINION.
So I updated my emunand to 10,4 and it broke my custom theme. Anyway I can fix it? Also how do I get other region games to work for reinand?. Mainly just translated FE fates. And can I delete the cias once the games are installed or do I need to keep them?
just dumped today's emunand to bin and copying my entire SD card to PC, I am ready to update to 10.4 and revert in case it bricks me
wish me luck that my 3ds doesn't explode into mustard gas
Finally finished unlinking and now have separate emunand and sysnand and menuhax works again. Luckily downgrade worked first try. Only took me three hours! There is still hope for the 10.3!
So I know the FAQ talks about switching SD cards after creating emunand, but what about before? I downgraded my o3ds to 9.2 a couple of days ago on a 2gb sd card and stopped before creating an emunand. Got a 32gb sd coming in today. Should I just start over from getting menuhax on the new one, or can I just copy-paste everything?
actually, 2 were probably the game, and one was the update.
I tried telling people to do that yesterday, and you wouldn't BELIEVE the backlash I got for suggesting it. "Anon, emunand tool is only used if you're going to edit your emunand", I mean jesus christ, how can you be so stupid.
Help, I got the error 022-2634, so I tried the fix in the guide here http://pastebin.com/EBKipkPW. At step 10, I turned on the 3DS while pressing L but it took me to the SysNand, and then a message appeared but I turned off the console before I messed up further. What should I do?
Is it safe to update emunand to 10.4?
Why isnt NTR working for me anymore?
It was working earlier and I only reformatted/restored EmuNand in order to be able to access eShop, do I have to redownload it or something? It says current firmware is not supported.
>"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."
i did this with wireless off, does anyone know if it still works?
how do I set it to do stuff when pressing different buttons?
it's on automatic so it just goes to CTR then loads rxtools and emunand
>download the latest bootntr.cia. You're using an old one.
But it's the latest one, as I was saying, it was working earlier, I only re-injected Emunand using Emunand Tool 1.0.1 and it stopped working
I can't find the right 9.2.0-20E(Full)_n3DS.zip file. I downloaded the one from 3DSISO as well as the one from the MEGA folder in the Pastebins, but neither of them has the right MD5 hash (taken from here https://gbatemp.net/threads/md5-checksums-crc-for-all-9-2-update-packs.408114/).
Where the fuck do I find the right update pack? Am I retarded? I don't want to brick my 3DS.
some other anon posted in a last thread that it might be connected to how much you played on 9.6+ with cryptolocked games. Or smth along the line.
However, if you format your system before downgrading a brick wont happen most likely
My bad, I tried "3disos"
Yes. If you installed anything after, try reinstalling the cia. It should give you an error saying that the file is already installed, then it'll show up where ever your put the file on your home screen.
What do I do to fix this? N3ds, using CHMM2.0.cia.
Hey guys im running into trouble with installing gba games on my n3ds. How do I install things ot my system nand? I'm running crtbootmanager with rxtools and homebrew on it and unlinked nands.
quick help pls as im almost done with this
im now unliking my NANDS
ive taken out the sd card, and am at sysNAND, im now gonna format the system memory but b4 i do i have to turn online on just wanna know if i should be concerned about something like updates or just do it
What's the safest way to remove all of my installations on emuNAND? I formatted my sysNAND using the 3DS options instead of tinyformat and it fucked up my emuNAND when I formatted it using tinyformat to unlink the NANDS again. The software I had installed still seems to be "installed,' but not showing up at all.
>using cakes or rei
I'm laughing at your right now
Where can I find people to play TriForce Heroes? I just got that game.
i had rxtools emuNAND 10.3 and i still required freemultipatcher to access eShop and that was before 10.4 came out. it's actually a waste of time for me to update. i see no new features that come with it.
Reminder for everyone who plans on downloading this game, please get the Japanese version. It has online mode, survival mode, training mode, better balancing, and more z-assist when you install the patch that never came to America.
That the link to the cia I'm downloading. It'll be nice if someone get an cia of the Japanese special demo so we can unlock Blue Super Saiyan Goku though.
nintyg, gamefaqs, neogaf, any 3ds gaming community
use tinyformat to format sysnand. if you're chickening out so much it might comfort you to know you CAN flash NAND.bin back to sysnand if you ever feel like it, using gateway menu.
no real reason you should ever do that unless you fucked up sysnand somehow, which is why you should do everything in emunand
>O3DS 9.2 SysNAND
>Autoboot CtrBootManager with Themehax
>Option for HBL and rxMode
Just finished following a tutorial and this is what my 3DS does now.
Anything else I should do to have my 3DS set up optimally?
Also how would I go about installing NDS and GBA games?
>How simple? Do I just install a cia file or something?
download bootntr.cia and install it, then put ntr.bin on root. get them here: https://github.com/44670/BootNTR/releases
launch rxtools and run the channel while in rxtools, press home, then run your game
if you have 10.4 emunand on n3ds, you'll want this version of bootntr instead: https://github.com/Shadowtrance/BootNTR/releases
Update on this, I thought that maybe menuhax was broken (like another fix on the same pastebin says) so I followed the steps for that and now I can't even enter browserhax, when I scan the QR code and touch the slider the browser closes and it gives me the following message "An error has occurred. Please save your data in any software currently in use, then restart the system" I already tried restarting but there's no changes. I really could use some help
The Ez flash 3 in 1 is not a GBA flash cart don't buy it. Its a ds expansion pack for using a GBA Rom loader. It will not work without a DS + DS flashcart.
Now that 3DS piracy is pretty much common for everybody, do you still use homebrew apps? Or do you think they aren't worth it if you can play full retail games?
I still play Duke Nukem, NES and Genesis emulators sometimes. And I would play that Pictionary app
if more people played it online
I still can't get this to work heres what I'm doing
1.Rename my boot.3ds so i dont boot into crtbootmanager
2.Start 3ds and boot into homebrew launcher
3. run pasta, get put back into home brew launcher
4 install the exploit to nand and the gba cia SD
5.Get bootmanager back in working order
6.boot into custom firmware and install the exploit to nand and gba cia to SD with the FBI app I have installed on the home menu
I'm still getting a black screen when i try to load the game
3Dbrew doesn't list any new NVER version despite the firmware shifting up to 29.
Just seems like Nintendo fucked up and either didn't actually update the NVER or their server side checks only check for 28 and over.
/vp/ doesn't know that you can have emunand and thinks Nintendo is going to block them out of homebrew if they don't update (while it's actually the opposite). They'll also complain once Nintendo blocks their way into the HBL on 10.5 or something. Give up, they'll never learn.
I use homebrew "tools" like svdt and NTR CFW and howling theme tool
emulators are fun too, and having perfect gba "emulation" is fantastic on 3ds
i could give less shits about homebrew games but i did hear someone was trying to port undertale
just unpack the files from the 7z with GARCTool.exe to get the models
the overworld models are 171 and 314 in a/0/2/1 and the battle model is 20 in a/1/3/3
even if it did exist, you could barely see it on such a tiny screen anyways
Oh, I haven't downloaded Busty May yet, I assumed it was busty all the time.
In that case, if anyone has a link to the in-battle busty model as nude I'll grab it and hopefully get to putting it in Star Sapphire when I get home tonight.
>O3DS emuNAND can update all the way to 10.4
>N3DS emuNAND can update all the way to 10.4 with Gateway/Cakes/Rei, rxTools still MIA
So why is rxTools the slowest out of all the CFWs to get emuNAND updates? 10.4 barely came out and the other CFWs support it right away. They didn't even get 10.3 support for N3DS out before 10.4 dropped.
How safe is it to pirate Smash DLC and go online if I already own a legal copy? Anybody gotten banned over this?
1. EZ-flash 3-in-1 is not a flashcart by itself, it needs a DS with a slot-1 card
2. Where can you find it for $17 and do they take paypal. I messed up mine trying to mod it to fit in a GBA before I realized the above.
>not editing it yourself

The SD card I use for emuNAND and o3ds homebrew seems to have pulled an hero by for some reason putting itself in write protected mode (I have not done anything to put it in there) I have backups of the entire 3DS folders, should I just copy past into the new SD card or is there anything special I need to do?
