GUIDES THAT AREN'T IN THE PASTEBIN: http://pastebin.com/xFkRmxGn • http://pastebin.com/n1Vd8vmW
THE OTHER GUIDES ARE IN THE FUCKING PASTEBIN ALREADY, QUIT BITCHING
- Nintendo released the 10.4.0-29 system update.
- Ironfall requires mandatory updates in 10.4, which patches Ironhax.
- Contrary to reports, Menuhax/Browserhax still work (O3DS and N3DS alike).
- rxTools is STILL not supporting 10.4 on N3DS.
- NTR CFW has been updated to work on 10.4.
>Is downgrading safe?
As safe as it gets. Follow guides and use the correct build(s) and you'll be fine. However, keep in mind that you'll have to update to 10.4 if you softbrick, which means you only have one chance of getting it right.
>So if I update to 10.4 am I screwed?
10.4 killed Memchunkhax 2, so basically, yes.
- Hykem generously shared some keys, seems to be in good spirits.
- Yellows8's .mp4 exploit has not been patched in 5.5.1
- .mp4 exploit for 5.4.0 consoles here: http://wiiubrew.net/540/
- 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.

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
>Is downgrading safe?
Not really. If you try, you only have one shot. If it fails, you'll be forced to downgrade. You might want to wait on 10.3 without updating, even though at the moment it doesn't seem there is going to be a safer way.
>So if I update to 10.4 am I screwed?
Yes. It fixed memchunkhax2, the ARM11 kernel exploit necessary to downgrade.
3DS: http://pastebin.com/TQwDsWh9 including downgrade guides
-Nintendo released the 10.4.0-29 system update. Don't try to downgrade if you don't want to risk a softbrick and be forced to update to 10.4.
-From 10.4 and on, Nintendo forces you to update Ironfall, fixing the exploit.
-menuhax and browserhax still work on 10.4
-NTR has been updated to work on 10.3 New 3DS. https://github.com/shadowtrance/BootNTR/releases

And I made this one a few hours ago.
What will happen to the stuff I've installed on RXtool if I move to Rei?
Will I have to reinstall all that shit?
So pretty New to this, so if I don't update my 3DS to 10.4, which I haven't yet I don't think I updated my 3DS since around end of last year, can I still hack it and get free games? I have a guide open and ready to do it but I don't want to do it if it's just gonna patch automatically.
I need to download a 3DS SDK (The config file specifically as someone told me in another thread) but I can not find it online. Literally every fucking forum link is someone saying
>I'll PM it to you ;^)
Does anyone have a link for the SDK/ config.cia?
Hey I am having trouble extracting the ROMFS from Alpha Saphire using the packhack from this link. https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-decrypt-extract-rebuild-3ds-roms.383055/
I have already grenerated the xorpads neccesary for the process. But when I but in the same folder as the Rom and the hacking tool and initiate the process, I get no Romfs folder and a empty exe folder. I am not getting any errors from the program, but I don't undersant why it doesn't work? I there any program or software other than python I need to have installed for the process to work?
>not liking Daisy
Sorry for all the questions but what does it do that ReiNAND doesn't?
I am on RX 9.2 just now, it shouldn't be too hard to swap.
VITA IS KILL AND DIE
Thanks, guys. I hacked my O3DS days ago thanks to you and the retard guide. I'm glad I didn't wait. All these free games! I'm just waiting for my new microSD to arrive.
I'd blow you all if I could. You guys are the best.

Any advice, lads?
So the first game I downloaded when I got everything set up was SK. Its been over at week and I haven't gotten past the first chapter. This game is simply awful, and I am so glad I didn't pay for it.
Ok lads, I tapped the slider, and now it tells me that an error has occurred, but there's more:
A few mnis ago, some shit downloaded onto the DS (anime channel or something like that, I think). It still says I'm in 9,2 though.
Am I ok to keep trying this until it works, do you think?
Guys I wanna try to jump on the boat, a few questions:
- We can play online with this hack, but we cannot go to the store anymore, right?
- 3ds don't have an update system as the old psp (where with new games you needed to update of firmware etc), but is possible that from now on we will get a madatory update via games?
- I heard you all talk about changing sd after the hack, is difficult somehow?
- and for last, I have read that you are using also 128gb sd, what you use to format those sd? I have an old program that I found on the net 'fat32format' There is anything better?
Also posting the long list of games, cheers
>Everyone has a N3DS
Why are N3DS users so fucking entitled? You realize that N3DS owners are the minority, right? You're the ones that need to read the special instructions because rxtools doesn't apply to you.
>My cia is in the doc even though no-one acknowledged it when I posted it.
Try again, it's not guaranteed to work, so just keep trying.
It's the description text on the reinand github page. Download the latest reinand release from the relases tab as well, since they need to match. I'd link it but I'm on mobile.
All right cool, thank you.
I've tried 5 times so far, and each time the touch screen has gone yellow, then gray, then the error message came up.
But I'll keep trying until it works.
I'm back again, subtle trigger into full troll mode.
Pretending to help cunts was genius if I do say so my self
I want update my 2ds U 7.1 synand to 9.0-9.2 to run the menu/browder hax for coldboot rx 3.0
In 3ds iso i donwloaded the 9.0.0-20Ufull package and iside of archive has a folder anmed updtes with a shiton of cias. So the sypdter ( installed on syndand on rx 2.5.2 dev mode)will install all files os just downloaded the wrong package?
>just spent hours updating to 10.3 last night and getting GBA CIA's working
>now have to update emuNAND to 10.4 and get NTR working
Does it ever end?
Come on guys throw me a bone, i can post lolis
I was under the impression that as soon as you enter System Settings from emuNAND it sends you to SysNAND. How does one safely update the N3DSXL emuNAND to 9.5 or 10.4 for badges?
Do i need to be on 10.4 for online play?
Finally is there a way to remotely install CIAs from my desktop? using SMB for example?
Do I use the SaveDataFiler thing from the OP guide or can I just grab this folder and put it on the "Nintendo 3DS" folder of my sd card? (the folder is related to the sysnand from when before I still had the save data)
- Yes and no, you can go to the eShop just fine
- Some 3DS games have mandatory updates, that's what emuNAND is for
- No, just transfer the emuNAND partition and the SD's contents to the new card
- Anything that can format the card to FAT32 will do
If you're already on Cakes v105 or higher and have the new keyslot file and firmware.bin, all you have to do is run system update in emuNAND to make it work.
You don't need to be on 10.4 to play online, but you need the latest game update to play some games online, and THAT requires eShop access to do.
You can use FBI SocketPunch, although it's a bit slow.
Absolutely not. Use SaveDataFiler.
Okay guys, just one question. To find how much am i fucked. Already downgraded 2 o3DS, problem is i can´t acces site for downgrade with N3DS.
How do you solve this, if you can solve this ?
Found something neat: Custom Menuhax payloads that hide the colorspam and debug text. http://ihaveamac.github.io/ninjhax2.x/
How to use: Download the custom ropbin, then replace the one currently on your SD with the custom. Rename it to the one on the SD if their names differ. (Back up your old ropbin just in case you're a dumb and picked the wrong region payload or something)
Well i will bite although i do not want to.
1-Yes you can with the cfw go with reinand or cake.
2-Updates are not mandatory but in the end it does not matter since you will have emunand and sysnand.
3-That is old news when we were speculating about the upgrade and we wanted to go fast and not all of us had sd 32/64/128gb sd cards available.
4-Use Ease Us Partition Master.
Final question, if I have the wrong keyslot and firmware.bin and update to 10.4 will I brick my emunand? or is it a simple matter of dragging the right files back onto SD card?
I hope I didn't fuck up and accidentally updated sysnand
I want to make a backup for emunand. I have emunand9 installed. Which option to I pick? Dump emunand to emunand.bin?
I have two questions
Three days ago I bought a N3DSXL, it's my first time with a 3DS console and I can't seem to get used to the 3D. When I activate it the top image looks, not sure how to explain it, blurry? It goes from a clean image with no 3D to something that simply irritates the eyes, no matter how low the 3D setting is. Also at some games it works awfully and literally doubles the image, that's what it does at Rhythm Thief at least. Is there any trick I need to do to get 3D working better?
As for the second question, people told me that my DS Supercard DSTWO would still work for the 3DS, but that doesn't seem to be the case? Do I have to update the supercard maybe??
on that note: .3ds or .cia first? should I change the title ID so it can be installed alongside vanilla ORAS? any changes I should introduce? use a hackrom as a base?
my internet isn't very fast so I can't just fill in all the possibilities in one go
I dont think that will get rid of emunand and everything else though.
I basically want to start fresh so I can follow another guide seeing as the guide I initially followed didnt really work properly.
Do you see a horizontal line at the top left of the screen?
If not, then dunno what to recommend. I can click the slider, but then I get the same as you.
Apparently clearing cookies/history helps though
though it hasn't helped for me
Well i didn´t. I got fucked over, ordered n3DS and was sure sure it´s 9.2 but it arrived 9.9. I just want to know if there is any way to downgrade it, if not i will just simply return and refund.
Fuck what you guys say about Reinand, and cakes, and all that other shit. Fucking N3DS mother fuckers. Fuck your homebrew, fuck your shitty anime girls, btw reinand should be named asukanand because everybody named rei is a cunt and asuka clearly the best.
I've use rxTool for month and it feel nice to me, and it works with no hassle. Fuck you ntr aswell you little shit.
fuckin rxtools best cept for the splash screen, fuckin square head little nigga.
Thanks for the long reply anon, have a wallpaper
In the first section, there are several ways to install HBL with different kinds of *hax. Including OoT3Dhax and CNhax.
If you did that, install menuhax immediately as that is easier to use.
Note that the starter kit which is available on that site doesn't include the SysUpdater.
OP's pastebin has it though.
Only, if you install the new theme on sysNAND. If you install it on emuNAND, nothing changes.
The splashscreen is really what won me over to Cakes desu.
>menuhax load + that 4+ sec load with that shitty avatar vs menuhax load + like 1 sec of text with autobooting cakes
It's easy to have both installed with CtrBootManager anyway.
>Only, if you install the new theme on sysNAND. If you install it on emuNAND, nothing changes.
Sorry for the retarded question, but If I boot into cakes > CFW that counts as emunand right?
>You don't need to be on 10.4 to play online, but you need the latest game update to play some games online, and THAT requires eShop access to do.
no it doesn't
update/dlc cias are available everywhere and firmware spoofing lets you use them on 9.2
lovely, thank you.
Well I say do a mod with just the nude textures first, with a new title ID.
Then after that make a mod with other changes.
This folder has some other textures you might not have. They're still uploading as I post this.
Fuck man, is this the only way ? I can´t downgrade without this ? By the time OoT arrives i might be unable to return N3DS.
Can´t i install menuhax without browser or something like that ? Did 10.4 really screw over N3DS ?
Post your games.
The theme for those interested.
>anything but garbage
it's literally developed by pastateam at this point
there's a reason it's the only relevant cfw that doesn't work with the latest firmware, it's because the devteam is retarded
>Did 10.4 really screw over N3DS ?
Not only N3DS but all from the family as it fixed the very exploit that was used for downgrading.
See if you have the means to run OoT3Dhax. If you do, wait for it. If you think, you're going to screw the save file up, refund the N3DS and get another one.

Just updated to 10.4 and am trying to access eShop.
I didn't get eShop working before on 9.5.
I'm getting error code: 022-2634 when I try to access it, some quick googling says to format my emuNAND. I unlinked my NANDs by formatting my sysNAND and I don't want to lose progress and have to reinstall all my shit, is that the only way to fix this? Do I just gotta use that save file thingy to back them up and redo everything?
Any chance that the PS3 will be hackable on newer OFW without having to buy any shit some day? Is there even a scene for it anymore? or is there at least a way to pirate DLC? I own most games I want anyway, but fuck DLC.
>everyone that disagrees with me is the dev
rxtools 2.6 is usable but not very good
rxtools nightlies are broken garbage
that build that's been floating around that's a reasonably stable nightly build is usable but still doesn't solve the problem that rxtools development is going nowhere fast with pastateam at the helm
but there's a reason i told the guy to try them and decide for himself
rxtools has a few outdated buggy tools that have been made obsolete with better releases and buggy built-in region free that's going to be added to cakes soon anyway
People give rxtools shit for being outdated but at least when I clocked rxtools it would boot, it had a 1/10 chance of failing maybe 1/5 if it was being moody.
Since I updated and switched to cakes I seem to have a fucking 1/20 chance of booting.
honestly, even though i strongly prefer cakes, i still recommend trying cakes, rei, and rxtools omega (or whatever it's called) for yourself and deciding which one you like best
the nice thing about emunand is that even if you fuck up, you can just scrap it and make a new one
What is it with with that small "rxtools is the best" and "no, reinand is better!" war? I dont care about people saying it, but how do they differ exactly and what is it that makes people prefer rx or rei?
it varies honestly
there were people last thread saying cakes boots far more frequently for them, but i've heard it go both ways, so i believe what you're saying
if rxtools boots better on your system, i'd say go with it. you might want to switch to the omega build though. you should also try rei and see if that works any better for you.
it also might be worth trying cakes once it has matured some more.
It's mostly anecdotal. What's not opinion is that ReiNAND and rxTools both cut corners for the sake of features like Ver. string replacement and AGB_FIRM support. Cakes has fewer features currently, but higher standards, so when it does get those features it'll be implemented properly. Plus I think the fact that both rxTools and ReiNAND switched from their own exploit bases in favor of CakeHax says something.
You need to install rxTools to make it work again.
Not him but I have all but Ruby because I own all but Ruby
I have 1 that I go through quick, then one I take my time in per release
tried the links in the retard guide?
I've updated games fine. If you enter the eShop it will delete any DLC you don't own though. Progress stays, but you'll need to reinstall it all.
Apparently this doesn't happen if you've never bought legit DLC, not sure if true thouhg
no I mean NTR
Okay, I have unlinked Sys- and EmuNand, if I set up a completly new NNID on my Emunand, will it work or do I still had to wipe my Emunand just to be able to avoid that shitty errorcode most people have?
I would do it anyway because I dont want to risk my current account. I doubt Nintendo is competent enough to do anything, but I better play it safe. Its not like I would lose anything, so I really dont mind doing it.
if you were using rxtools before on 9.2/9.5, it could be because 10.3/10.4 is inherently more stable
this is purely anecdotal, but on my o3ds, hbl crashed nine times out of ten on me on 10.3, but after i downgraded it has only crashed once in probably a hundred or more boots. maybe 10.3/10.4 itself is the issue?
so I hacked my 3DS. now its telling me there is an update.
Is is safe to update my 3DS while in EmuNAND? or do I have to jump through hoops to update my 3DS?
I'd like to make sense of this.
Are we just copying GBAtemp tutorials here, or did Sgt. Lulz personally spinoff a /vg/ pastebin? My hesitation adding this to the 3DS pastebin is the numerous complaints that people already weren't sure which guide to follow. It is a bit unclear why we need even more guides.
Can 'ARSESES' please at least give this a title and do something about the literal forum code left in there?
Looks like Hyrule Warriors is multilanguage.
>Two months until the game is released on the west
I installed StreetPass DLC and now it thinks my Puzzle Swap is 100% somplete even though I only have like 6-7 puzzles done.
Is there a way to fix this? Puzzle Swap was easily one of my fav StreetPass "games".
According to GBAtemp, it does.
same goes for a few other languages.
Noice, alright then. I like your style in as much as you're editing it a lot. Add it in a minute.
I think re: http://pastebin.com/xFkRmxGn that EBKipkPW just needs to edit his shit already. For a retard's guide that one sure does still manage to confuse people.
That's just awesome.
We don't need to wait two months to play the game (and understand it at the same time).
Region Free, though I don't think it matters anymore, other than needing NTR for foreign DLC
I have the games in the pic plus 4 others (quite small, largest is Zelda Multiplayer) on my 32GB, with 1GB to spare.
USA? If yes then I'll upload it for you
Bravely Default is a fat game, I wish I had room for it
There was an anon earlier today, or maybe yesterday that was having trouble getting Universal Inject Generator to work on his computer, and I was having the same problem.
Basically we would put the .cias and hs.app into the input folder and run go.bat, but it would say that hs.app wasn't found. I don't know if a solution was found, but I found one earlier. Just do this https://gbatemp.net/threads/project-injecting-any-app-into-health-and-safety.401697/page-6#post-5973007
Thanks for all the help, and I hope this helps anyone who has the problem!
Okay so online worked fine yesterday
Was able to go into the badge arcade and such
Today I'm unable to and even after updating emunand to 10.4 it still doesn't work
ps if it means anything I unlinked my nands last night
pss online works fine in games just can't access the eshop and stuff like that
I'll see what else I can do to improve it further.
>Try starting a new puzzle maybe? Either way it's better than losing progress
I can't. The game icon has a star on it and when I open it rather than give me the option of buying pieces or getting pieces from my streetpasses it just says "View Progess" and "Exit".
I had puzzles not yet completed too, hopefully they are still there somewhere, it only shows the ones I 100% filled.
I assume so, what type is the save file? Have you tried just using svdt to inject it?
Anon from earlier who couldn't run retail Smash with cia patch.
I just found out that Smash automatically runs from sysNAND, even when booted from emuNAND. I have no idea how it does that but the fact that my sysNAND's name is on the bottom tells me that it's currently running from sysNAND.
Can anyone explain that to me?
I used browserhax and it installed some grid version of Homebrew.
And then the grid version came with a bunch of shit I didn't want like ReiNAND. I have no use for this, but it added TWO different ReiNAND things.
Does anybody know what ReiNAND does and what the difference is between the red-haired ReiNAND girl and the green-haired one?
does anyone have the super mario bros. ambassador cia USA? is the only one that i dont have and my autism needs it.
>rxTools is shit
>You can get the same features and more by using Cakes + NTR + Decrypt9
Why do you need more than that? Are you hoping someone will say something to make you switch, or are you just genuinely curious? I think a curious person would just take the first few answers, but it sounds like you're fighting a sort of internal battle. There's no need to switch if you don't care that Cakes is better.

When setting up emuNAND and transferring those files to the SD, are you meant to replace the '3ds' file?
I downgraded my N3DS to 9.2 (successfully) but was too lazy to search for guide on cfw, and sinc I barely play on my 3DS since I got Vita, I decided I'll just do it later... Now recently I wanted to play HMPM DX (not rom, I own the cart) and it wants to upgrade to 9.4. Ofc I refused, but now I'm guessing I have to install CFW and update emuNAND even if I want to play my original cart.
Can someone give me idiot-proof guide on CFW for N3DS?
spoon-feed me pls
Dumb question... I have a 16GB card... if I upgrade to a larger card... can I just transfer everything from my old card to my new card and it just works? or do I have to do anything if I change cards?
backup your emunand to emunand.bin
use ^ to format new SD selecting the emunand.bin
copy all the files from old SD to new SD
How do I install DLC?
I just installed it in the H&S app after installing the main game.
I did the same process the /feg/ pastebin told me to do for DLC for my FE:Fates install, but it's not working.
you renamed that for an epic meme right?
This. I have a DSTWO and really old R4 that I can play my DS games on, but I'd love them to be filling up my home menu instead.
I'd rarely play them, but muh comfort
This is asked like 50 times a thread and it's in the OP pastebin. Can we just have a mod lurk and instaban anyone with "upgrade to a larger SD card" in their post?
yes because there's a video on it
You should probably re-read one of the guides here to get a better understanding of the process. You clearly zoomed through it blindly if you're asking this.
It's in the cakepack
You don't need it anymore if you're using Cakes that is 108 or newer.
Why? I updated my JP N3DS to 10.4 just fine the normal way.
There's not really a situation where you need to wipe everything and start over. Try thinking for yourself a bit. You can probably pick up where you left off with the first guide. If you have any questions, just ask.
I wrote the Cakes guide
You won't softbrick. I've downgraded 3 (without formatting them, my Internet died before I could answer this a few threads ago) and never softbricked. Never softbricked any O3DSs either.
It's not about the exclusives you fucking idiot. The specs are objectively much better. In homebrew general of all places you should realize this means we can do way more with it.
Go back to /v/ if you think it's about how many exclusives it has.
All you have to do is update in settings and grab the new NTR to install. Easy.
you don't need to be on latest firmware to play online dumbass
>Just one isn't really enough.
If he actually does it, I have there's a version without disgusting cow tits.
Uhh... If you just mean through the homebrew launcher, then no it doesn't need it. You won't be using the .cia file if you're using the homebrew launcher, though.
The DSP thing is a 30 seconds fix, read the FAQ: http://pastebin.com/ndvW5Aji
what payload is it based off of though? I switched to an older payload already to improve bootrates, wouldn't wanna give that up now
Im trying to update my legit smash bros and its giving me an error. I also cant access the e shop... how do i update my games, legit or not?
>This. I have a DSTWO and really old R4 that I can play my DS games on, but I'd love them to be filling up my home menu instead.
>I'd rarely play them, but muh comfort
How do you get your old R4 to work on your 3DS? Mine used to work on 3DS but now it doesn't even show up in the Home Menu anymore.
>What does FS mean?
Firmware Spoof. Obsolete now I think since everyone can be on the latest firmware in emuNAND
To build hype? There's probably a money fueled reason behind it.
I feel sick, you should have just lied
Do any DS games show up for you? Theres a problem with a lot of people where DS games just don't work in emuNAND. Nobody knows why either. Luckily mine work fine.
I don't use the old R4 anymroe but I think it was "Flashcart Whitelist" or something that you had to patch to the sysNAND to allow blacklisted games (aka flashcarts) to work again.
If it never worked on 3DS before (or DSi) then you're fucked though.
Added it to my list too.
If anybody got more Mega links please post them ITT
I just downgraded and installed CFW and got some games installed but the 3D doesn't work at all anymore. It works when I boot normally though is there a fix to this or is it just how it is
not needed when you have two anons adding links to pastebin.
because either some games have become scarce, or some people don't want to wade through dead links and forum registrations. I do it mainly for myself anyway.
You're missing a few I have too.
>have to see that stupid rainbow pony's face every time i launch homebrew
>rxtools is preferred method on o3ds.
No, it's not. Cakes works great on O3DS.
needs to be updated, in another system as well (put files on SD, launch it, it'll update; you can't launch it to update if it's blocked on your 3DS currently)
as the other anon said, 3D just kinda sucks. I have the O3DS, O3DS XL, N3DS, and N3DS XL. It's better on the N3DS but I still keep it off.
it doesn't even slightly matter
a few weeks maybe
You're not smart enough to post here. I'm glad you figured stuff out with the retard guide, but it's time for you to leave.

no, in fact it is the worst
Guess what else is outdated? Most of the guides here. People follow the guides and then parrot what they heard there. It causes a lot of damage, it's a real shame.
>english Stella Glow
Why? The JP voices are really good. They chose well-known seiyuu.
(if you just meant english text I can upload the undub for you)
Just for future reference (and for anyone else reading), this issue is because the guide you followed did not instruct you to use TinyFormat. Formatting with the SD card out (formatting through system settings, really, the SD bit doesn't matter) leads to a half-linked NNID which results in that error. TinyFormat not only avoids this issue, but you don't need to remove your SD card if you use it, and you don't need to be online either.
It's safe. Just do it in system settings.
What boot method are you using? O3DS or N3DS? Did you change anything? Which CakesFW version is it?
menuhax > ctrbootmanager > CFW into emuNAND
no one knows what you set your trigger to or if you have all this setup properly
I have a perfect bootrate with Cakes. You should file an issue on github.
I've got 54 games installed, plus some VC titles I haven't installed yet because I'm lazy. As I get older I find it harder to get into games, so I like to keep everything I might potentially play available on the off chance I get the urge to play it. That's why I use .cia files for games I own on cartridge as well, the less effort it requires the more likely I am to play it. Which is why I don't want to have to fuck around with deleting games and reinstalling them if I ever want to play them again. I very well may never play some of the games I've installed and that's fine. A 128GB microSDXC card is only $35 these days anyway.
a shame ftpbrony is the only good FTP around
We kinda update eachother.
Just compare them but you're missing a few individual titles and one Mega /hbg/ folder.
We started on the same day. I copied and merged a few lists posted by /hbg/ anons.
The other Anon then copied my merged list and started adding stuff.
I then copied stuff he added while we both copy stuff people post ITT.
To update to 10.3 on my emunand do I just grab the 10.3 update file, replace my update folder with it then
Boot up to emunand, launch hbloader then use sysupdate from there? Or will I need to use the sysupdate cia because of menuhax?
So yeah I'd like to add one of these to the 3DS Downloads pastebin, or both depending if you guys think you'll independently collect links or...
That's cool man, that's cool... can we think of a way to set them apart, or should we just call them twins or what?
>-LOADIINE ON 5.4
What the fuck? I thought that it was going to be for 5.5
I think a lot of people have an irrational hate for Cakes, so even those who were finally convinced that rxTools was shit would like to flock to anything but Cakes. That just leaves reiNAND.
No, actually, that's a pretty good analogy. It's the exact rip of the game and is needed if you want to make modifications or make a region-free or cryptofixed .cia file. If you need a .cia you can convert .3ds to it. It doesn't work in reverse.
>update without .cia
Can you elaborate on your problem?
Do you happen to know which NATIVE_FIRM that firmware.bin is? I likely already have it downloaded.
If you're not on rxTools, it's safe. If you're on rxTools but you're on an O3DS, it's safe.
>For a retard's guide that one sure does still manage to confuse people.
Agreed. I honestly vote that we remove it.
Nintendo of America is shit. They need time to censor it and add memes. Yes, I'm serious. Also, if they can think up a new name for it they get to draw a new logo which makes them more money.
The process isn't really special, so a guide shouldn't be needed. What's unclear to you? I can add something to my FAQ for others if something is confusing.
>get latest cakes and associated files
>make sure you have 10.2 firmware.bin if you didn't already
Oh god I'd be pissed if that happened to me.
I think it's mostly the voice acting that inflates the size so much.
ntr.bin hasn't been updated in 3 months. If you already have it, you probably don't need to replace it.
If you're on 10.3 then 10.4 is safe.
sounds like you've got menuhax on both NANDs
>you didn't use TinyFormat to unlink
I bet you follow the Retard's Guide, huh..
Up to you. I would if I weren't on 5.5.
very well supported
you should really have a repeater or booster
nah its an older version of ftbrony, turbo hasn't been released without the pony bullshit.
>tfw can't background.bin it anymore
I fucking hate this thing but its so good in terms of speed.
If you buy an SD card that seems like the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Especially if you bought it off eBay. Never buy SD cards off eBay. Chinamen will sell cards that are formatted to appear to be high capacity (the card will report to Windows that it can hold 128GB or whatever) when in reality it's just a 1GB card or some other crap. So when you start filling the card up it throws errors and truncates data because it doesn't have the capacity it says it does.
>tripfag cake-sympathiser still bashing my retard guide
go fuck yourself mate
>7. Follow the Setting up CFW on 9.0-9.2 guide.
Does your guide basically cover what that guide would anyway? It sounds like you're referencing https://gbatemp.net/threads/398394/
Something about a guide just saying "btw just do this other guide" always struck me as poor form. I'm not sure you even needed that though.
Is there a way to edit MenuHax to load a file not called boot.3dsx? Because getting into the HBL on emunand seems a fucking chore else:
MenuHax > CTRboot > Emunand > *hax > CTRboot > HBL > app.3dsx >result
So Hyrule Warriors worth downloading if you're on o3DS?
I heard it runs like shit.
It clearly says "merge", not "replace", and yes you should merge them.
No, you clearly are not familiar with the Unix Way.
Cakes is better than rxTools, that's a given. However, people bring up missing features, so I have to tell them that they can get those features back (and have them implemented better) by using alternatives like the ones I listed. I would say even on rxTools you should use all those things because they're so much better than rxTools' implementations.
>I'm on 10.4 so I have to use reinand anyway
Okay? So stop shitposting, please. You can also use Cakes on 10.4, by the way.
Placebo. Not to say bookmarking it is a bad idea if you have to use it more than once, though.
>Any other shit I should grab?
Not sure, I'm just a filthy 5.5fag, sorry. Good luck, though! Please post results.
If you think it's useless, sure. The main benefit is being able to update games via eshop, IMO.
The harmful process known as "localizing" in which they make unnecessary changes for money. It's gotten so bad in recent years that I'm probably just going to learn Japanese and stop putting up with localizations.
You can get an update .cia file.
Thanks for sharing.
I've heard it's good, and yes it has been localized.
On sysNAND? Definitely. On emuNAND it's fine to update, assuming you're running Cakes or reiNAND.
holy shit that's actually pretty decent for FTP
is there a .cia version with that sort of speed?
When you boot the hbl cia, hold y. It will download a payload so it can be used offline.
It'll be called something like hblauncherloader_otherapp_payload_NEW-10-4-0-29-USA.bin. Open it in notepad (or another text editor) and replace boot.3dsx with whatever your homebrew launcher is called.
I updated my list to be as close to yours as possible at _this very moment_, but I'll stop posting mine and just use mine as a backup.
Also, here's a working cia for Flipnote Studio 3D.
>Cakes is better than rxTools, that's a given.
>literally no explination as to why it's better
>then says you need to install more shit to have the same functionality as rxTools
>still claiming cakes is better
You're cakedev arn't you. There is no other explination as to why you would shill it this hard.
If you've played ANY of the Warriors series, the frame drop and enemy pop ups may annoy you into not playing. If not, it might not irritate you as much.
Well, I ran into some trouble, in the part that says "Replace the "main" file in the "filer" folder". Turns out that I don't have any of those. I guess if I redownload the games, play them so save data gets created and then use the sdf to import it create the filer folder, but nowhere in my backup do i have a "main" file. Is there any other file that should have the save data on my backup?
You might be in a bit of trouble.
Did you completely format sysNAND? Or did you just unlink NANDs by formatting sysNAND?
In any case, you need to have a NAND you can access those save files in.
>Btw, do I need to run minipasta if I want to run Emunand9tool?
I'm not entirely sure. When I setup CFW (and also in my guide) I go from miniPasta to the homebrew launcher to FBI where I install things, from there when I'm done I just back up to the homebrew launcher and then go to EmuNAND9, so I'm still in miniPasta that entire time. It probably works with miniPasta, but I've never tried, at least not for emuNAND creation. I know it can make backups without Pasta since I've launched it from ctrbootmanager.
There won't be. There's also not actually a risk in downgrading if you get the proper files.
You could fill it up with garbage from /dev/random using dd probably. Then see how big it is. Not entirely sure how well this would go.
Not to my knowledge. You'll want Pasta or Cakes for that. Hope you're hungry.
If you're talking about the same sysUpdater you used to downgrade, you'll want a different one. The .cia will work but you can also just update to 10.4.. It's safe.
Just update from system settings. I've got a JP N3DS on 10.4 emuNAND.
Yes. What are you using to edit/inject?
Every firmware is eventually getting support. Also, Loadiine sucks and is just a stop-gap. It will likely be replaced once Hykem releases his stuff.
That's completely fair, but I really do think it's annoying considering I'm often helping people who fucked something up because of that guide.
It's actually bad and I've said why several times. Use TinyFormat so people stop breaking their NNID you fucking faggot.
That is correct.
Yes. It used to save to the root of the SD card, and I think if you delete the EmuNAND9 folder, it still does. Before I realized it, I made an emuNAND backup like ten times in a row.
Sky is pretty much redundant unless you're on 10.4, so Gateway is the better option.
But since you have to fuck about downgrading anyway, CFW is a free option that's there which serves a similar purpose.
