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
>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
-LOADIINE ON 5.4
-Hykem generously shared some keys, seems to be in good spirits.
-.mp4 exploit for 5.4.0 consoles here: http://wiiubrew.net/540/. It works up to 5.5.
-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.
Anyone know why CHMM doesn't work from me from the app icon I installed in the emuNAND?
It just doesn't change the theme even if it says installing. But if I go to it from the Homebrew Launcher in emuNAND it works fine.
i'm about to attempt to downgrade a n3DS XL 9.9 to 9.2 with this video guide:
it is a n3DSXL with a TN screen so i'm gonna send this fucker back to amazon anyway. reason i wanna do this is to "practice" for the precious IPS n3DS XL, same firmware. see how this goes.
am i just wasting time attempting a downgrade at this point now that 10.4 is out? I have no cubic ninja or OoT or anything of that sort. both consoles are new.
>Someone on Wii U swapped Chrom and Lucina's models
>People have already done music swaps for 3DS
>Someone made a very basic moveset editor for 3DS in which someone else used it to add in extremely buggy wavedashing
>a ton of people are on CFW and those who are not have HANS on 10.4
When will we see decent mods for Sm4sh like in Brawl?
If you want tech support try to explain your situation bro we're not there to see what you're doing
10.4 kernel acces when?
I think that's a common problem
So I unlinked my nands last night and I'm unable to access the eshop or arcade (probably due to my nnid being unlinked)
Is there any way to link a new nnid to it?
Whenever I try it tells me a system update is needed to access online
I hate to break it to you, but are you aware of what happened to Project M?
As long as it comes on 9.8 or older you can still use browserhax.
No. Stay where you are.
You should've used TinyFormat.
There were more subtle Brawl mods besides Project M.
Yes, but it doesn't have the BootNTR needed to work on 10.4
Could some great man move some Mario Maker saves to SD and then upload them so I can do a bit of research on the level files?
>What to Do:
>Select the Wii Menu from the Wii U Menu.
>Select the Wii button in the bottom left corner of the Wii Menu.
>Select the type of content you wish to transfer (Channel or Save Data >for the channel).
>Select the content you wish to move, and then select "Copy."
>Select "Yes" to copy to your SD Card.
I was referring to Brawl mods in general you faggot.
I didn't even play Project M
That was a specific case where people thought it was better than Brawl and it got a lot of attention from big events
Nintendo was never able to stop the Brawl modding community.
It doesn't work like that, it's a Wii U game, not a Wii game. Wii U saves are encrypted. The only people that can dump it are people with access to the save manager homebrew, and even that works very poorly.
>Fug do I have to update to 5.5.1 now?
i don't even know how people are getting this retarded idea
the only time you should update is if you are below 5.0, and then you should disc-update to somewhere in the 5.0 to 5.3.2 range inclusive
>is it as easy as just replacing the relevant files on the sd?
>replace the patches folder in /cakes
>replace the Cakes folder in /3DS
>replace cakes.dat on SD card root
That should be it unless there's a reason to change the firmware.bin again at some point in time.
CINCO PUNTO CINCO
You're looking at the Wii U save menu, the one that encrypts all data per-console with encryption that hasn't been figured out yet. You can also only copy to specifically formatted/encrypted drives whose layout hasn't been figured out yet either.
You can't get the .cdt files from that.
Can I get the game recommendation chart for 3DS? I downloaded a bunch of fucking JRPGs like a retard and will never finish them all, and find myself playing short-form games like Rhythm Heaven that I can pick up and put down.
>midbattle saving works in .3ds dump
It'll probably be fixed for .cia at some point.
probably tied to the issue generating extra data, which may or may not be a result of the hack to enable the english dialog.
Need to wait until an untampered one is uploaded to see if that works okay, or if someone dumps the extdata of a copy that works that can be installed via savedatafiler.
So I just downgraded from 9.9 to 9.2
The browser keeps freezing and the settings menu doesn't open, but apart from that everything works.
I'll probably use OOThax to get the homebrew launcher and just do shit there.
10/10 would not do again
The guide in the pastebin says that anything above 10.3 is fucked.
I tried to follow the downgrade procedure from this guide:
but as soon as I open the browser it requires an update to proceed. I'm just fucked aren't I.
Like I said, it can be dumped, but it needs a kernel-exploited console rather than just any random console, and I think most of us here are 5.5.0 never-ever. I don't know of any public level dumps but MarioUnmaker has the format documented: https://github.com/Treeki/MarioUnmaker
There's also some issues with Mario Maker in particular. I don't know how far that goes, but I've seen people complaining that the game doesn't work very well on Loadiine/FWspoof if you have the patches.
guys i got cakes cfw 9.2 on my 3ds, but is it possible to even play games like yokai watch on it? i know i can update to 9.5, but last time i did that everything got wipped
>nintendo releases another update
>they remove the ability to change DNS settings or launch videos in browser
>hackfags faces when
I still don't get why Cakes is a meme, is booting faster than any other CFW I have used and works flawlessly, not a single freeze or anything.
Sure I have to run NTR for my jap games but that's ocassional. And having constant updates is nice.
WHERE ARE THE NEWS FOR THE WII U, CAN THEY BE MODDED LIKE THE 3DS? CAN I BUY ONE THATS IM RECENT UPDATE AND BE ABLE TO MESS WITH IT?
CAN I STILL MESS WITH THE WII VERSION OF THE WII U FOR HOMEBREW
It's not a meme.
Well, the exploits to gain emunand etc might not work, and no you can't retry the downgrade now.
the 10.x downgrade requires certain things to work.
that's okay, region locking already defeated the point halfway
>"So in a strange turn of events, Nintendo basically designed the bosses to work like characters"
>"In this mod it replaces Dr. Mario with Yellow Devil as a little test, it's a bit buggy and YD even has very basic movement (ripped from Kirby) so it kinda works"
Has anyone tried it?
He said you just need a Sm4sh .cia and his program to inject the mod files
I bought a 3DS XL the other day that's on 9.0.0
I'm following the instructions on the literally retarded guide, but whenever I try to launch browser hacks through the QR code it kicks me out with the "an error has occurred" message.
I can get past the yellow screen to a grey one. Do I just have to keep trying or is there something I'm missing?
>and no you can't retry the downgrade now. the 10.x downgrade requires certain things to work.
Not even if I manually try installing the 4-5 remaining CIAs that weren't installed during the downgrade process?
I'm a competent freetard who uses Linux as his daily driver.
I couldn't get smashhax to work at all. (n3ds)
I could broadcast the packet just fine (confirmed with wireshark), but smash would just lock up and crash gracefully every time ("an error has occurred"). Gave it about 20 tries and gave up.
Maybe I'm a special case, but I kind of feel that if I couldn't get it then there's no hope for the winbabbies.
>error code 005-4273 whenever I try to access eShop from emuNAND
Anyone else getting this?
Or know what it means?
You can always try. It's better than giving up immediately. Formatting seems like a poor idea, especially if your settings don't work (the settings app is the initial setup app).
Well, I'm a tinfoil paranoia dude so I'm kinda resolved to just keep wireless off forever. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" and whatnot so I'm happy playing my pirated games on 10.3 for now.
Thanks for the heads up that there is a proper port. Is there anything special about eshop titles that would preclude them from being made into a .cia?
I know I might have to plumb the depths of some shitty brazilian sites etc but at least I'll know there's light at the end of the tunnel.

Sup chaps, sorry to bother, we currently have a leaked version of BF3 surfacing. If anyone with a modded 360 could come over and check it out, that would be great. Current objective is to get a webm of someone running in a circle three times and then jumping up and down three times
>tinyformat emuNAND/sysNAND one 3DS
>no extra memory from clearing the 3DS of duplicate titles
>use system format on either
Is there some sort of folder that holds these games you formatted
If you know a thing about 3DS, Wii U "kernel" = 3DS ARM11 while Wii U IOSU = 3DS ARM9.
With a kernel exploit, we can load code and redirect things to load off an SD card, but it's all kinda hacky and bad (the current Loadiine basically just overwrites Mii Maker or Smash with a game of your choice after it loads).
With IOSU, we can just install unsigned games to the regular home menu and it'll recognize it as genuine. EmuNAND should be an option too, though Wii U EmuNAND might be a bit more difficult due to how the console is laid out (32GB of EmuNAND is a lot). Things should bother us a lot less with IOSU.
This surprises the fuck out of me. How did they find exploits to the WiiU so soon? It took them 3 years compared to the wiis and the wii had the same gekko. And when I compare all of this to PS3/4 and Xbox its mindblowing to me.
>Thanks for the heads up that there is a proper port. Is there anything special about eshop titles that would preclude them from being made into a .cia?
Dsi version should also work if you install it the same way you do the gba games.
I've been trying to get gba cias to work but whenever I try to load them I grt black a screen and have to reboot. I've installed the AGB patch to the nands and each game to.both emunand and sysnand using fbi to SD card. I'm using rxtools 9 2, unlinked nands, n3ds.
hey guys got cakes cfw 9.2 on my 3ds, but is it possible to even play games like yokai watch on it? i know i can update to 9.5, but last time i did that everything got wipped
Is there a way to extract the saves from my cia installed games and insert them again to the same cia but installed on another nand?
What im trying to say about moralfags is that they do stuff different and end over complicating things.
Most of them try to recode a exploit to block piracy and this greatly increases time for something to get released.
If they cant find a way to do it they dont release it at all.
Almost every .cia file I download seems to be invalid. I get them from different sources but mainly the links in the pastebin and 3dsiso. Sometimes they fail installing when they reach 99% but most of the files are marked as invalid right away by the installer. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Is it a bad SD card or am I fucking up my downloads somehow? I already tried different installers and I'm downloading games for the right region (EUR).
If no one knows what to do I'm going to try converting 3DS files to .cia myself (although that locks me out of some of the bigger games like Donkey Kong Country Returns).
Anybody know what these types of files are? I want to delete them because they use up a shitload of space.
So I'm currently a waitfag, stuck on 10.3 with menuhax installed. My current plan is to:
1) Buy a bigger SD card and just swap everything from my old SD card
2) Downgrade and get a whole bunch of games (when it's safe to)
3) Get the next Pokemon game when it comes out, I'll probably buy it.
4) Play the game online but still have my homebrew and all my pirated games.
Is it likely I'll be able to do these in the future?

It's safe to downgrade if you have above first-grade reading comprehension. I would wait until you get the bigger SD card though since otherwise you have to reformat emunand and shit all over again.
It's obfuscated so nintendo has an harder time figuring out how it works (and how to patch it). Once the exploit is out and anyone can control starbuck, it's not up to him to decide what homebrew people are launching.
Please stop believing everything that's posted on GBAtemp, it's full of clueless retards and people trying to stir up reactions from clueless retards.
if all he needs is a level save, you can just use the base game without patches or firmware spoofing, the game RUNS fine on loadiine by itself, it's just you have to do a bunch of shit to get online working.
>guys got cakes cfw
Alright, I'm following the retard guide so I can get rid of the Eshop error, and I'm at the part where I copy my EmuNAND folder to my PC, and I don't know which one it is.
how does one install muntple cfw versions, like having rx tools and cakes?
do you just drop cakes into the root add a boot.cfg line and it just boots into your emunand ezpz?
Does it keep all you games and shit?
im not retarded or anything im just curious, ive seen others talk about it but cant find any info.
So while playing my MM3D cart, I've been downloading .cia files like a madman to my PC in the meantime. How do I choose what to play first? Does /hbg/ just roll for it? I'm overwhelmed with free games, fuck.
Pretty sure he said it's only so that Nintendo doesn't patch it the second it comes out. Doubt he gives a fuck about piracy.
If you end up on a "frankenfirmware" it's because you're doing it through Browserhax. Try Menuhax. If you're on O3DS, this has a 100% success rate
cakes is not a meme
cakes is a meme is a meme, though
if you're already on franken9.2, just run the downgrader again and you should get to legit 9.2. if it successfully patched native_firm, you can do this with the 9.2 sysupdater and shouldn't have to try it ten billion times. make sure you have the right fucking firmware files in your updates folder, though.
When I downgraded my n3ds from 9.8 I couldn't load any CFW, so I had to update and then downgrade again, but this time from 10.3 and now it works.
That's why I don't want to downgrade my others o3ds, these are on 9.9, I'll wait until something comes out or whatever.
So I'm trying to do setup EmuNAND, but when I run it and it formats my sd card, this is what is left on it. I thought there was supposed to be a file almost a gig large? Can someone explain what is happening or if I'm doing something wrong?
The gig big file is the backup you should/should've made. The actual EmuNAND is unpartitioned space on your card, it gets removed from the total space instead of the used space.
>i can update to 9.5
you can update emunand to 10.4 if you're using cakes, just follow the guide
or you can just find a version of it that works on 9.2, i'm sure it exists, look for a cryptofix or a firmware spoof, not sure which would be necessary in that case
>if you're already on franken9.2, just run the downgrader again and you should get to legit 9.2. if it successfully patched native_firm, you can do this with the 9.2 sysupdater and shouldn't have to try it ten billion times. make sure you have the right fucking firmware files in your updates folder, though.
The first time I ran the downgrader it successfully patched native_firm. I think it even only had around 3 or 4 CIAs left to install.
Does that mean that I can still do the downgrade on my franken9.2?
>>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.
Is this about downgrading from 10.4 to 10.3 or something else?
Does this count if I copied them to emuNAND? I had Smash, Animal Crossing, and Four Swords on my N3DS before I did emuNAND. They're still taking up space despite me formatting sysNAND.
you should be able to afaik
not sure what downgrader you used that patched native_firm before other cias, but you should be able to run regular sysupdater as far as i know. make sure you have the right files and that they're in the right place, then launch it from hbl and hit downgrade. might want to back shit up first using emunand9 just in case, but you should be good imo
Yes. The games you actually install to EmuNAND go on your regular SD card too, the EmuNAND partition is just the system and game tickets.
If you were to remove those files you'd have to redownload the games in question.
Can't you play games online as long as you have the newest updates? which you can install via cia. and ironhax is the only OFFLINE Hbl loader I know of, Unless oot and cubic can be used offline. but that hbl.cia requires the net connection. Which is shit.
i used julian20's when i downgraded and it does native_firm last, so i dunno
but yeah, you should be able to just run sysupdater from hbl i think. i would make a nand backup just in case, better to be forced to do a hardmod to force in frankennand than be forced to 10.4
So it's either delete all my games to remove double the space and reinstall them all, or live with unnecessary data using up my SD?
Not everyone's updated their emuNAND to 10.3 though anon. And Ironhax is indeed kind of worthless by the time you've hacked.
Can't you install the homebrew channel from a .cia that works offline?
I have yellows8, if you try to launch it with wifi off it'll give you an error. Maybe I have an old version or something but it always says it fails to get payload unless wifi's enabled.
Basically after patching NATIVE_FIRM (and a couple of other CIAs afterwards) the top screen went black and the bottom screen said that there was an error and that I should reboot my system.
After rebooting the screen was black until I took my SD card out, but I'm guessing that's because of menuhax.
On 10.2 and when I try to open browser to install Homebrew, my O3DS tells me that it can't open the browser until I do a system update. Am I fucked or is there a way to install it without using the browser exploit?
I gotta wait for my copy of OOT to arrive then, as I can't run browserhax to reinstall menuhax since the browser doesn't work.
So I should try julian20's downgrader then? I thought that SafeSysUpdater was basically some sort of wrapper for it, since SSU still needed SysUpdater in the directory to actually work.
Again at 99%
I try different files and games each time.
>so i should try julian20's
not if native_firm got successfully patched, just use the official sysupdater
julian20's and safesysupdater are both mods of the official sysupdater to work with 9.3+
and keep in mind oot requires a powersaves dongle to set up hax
>im a retard who doesnt know how to use date modified
i wish everyone would look up what cryptofix means.
afaik yokai watch couldnt be cryptofixed until recently, because you needed the KeyX from the reinand dumps to make workable xorpads, now you can.
the .app files inside the emunand folder (the one in Nintendo 3DS/EMUNANDNUMBERS) are the fucking games themselves, if you delete them you delete the games.
if you have app files in the one that you sure is the sysnand folder then go ahead and delete them.
Tomodachi life and streetpass apparently work too though I wouldn't trust streetpass/spotpass to not try and update. So I'm guessing any game will work online as long as you've got the newest update .cia installed.
Outside of eshop not point in updating yet. And eshop's pointless since you find a .cia of whatever you were gonna get most likely.
The only reason memchunkhax had a "2" is because Nintendo patched it poorly. People saying that they're "working" on an exploit are bullshitting more often than not. You can't "work" on an exploit, all you can do is reverse engineer or poke around until you find something, and there's no guarantee you'll find anything. Reputable devs can know when they've found something that they can turn into an usable release, but even then, they usually only leak info if it's truly necessary/useful for people to know in advance (like with the whole "download Ironfall now, it's free and stuff").
Yokai Watch isn't N3DS exclusive/doesn't use the N3DS-exclusive Secure4, it's using standard 9.6+ seed crypto.
>i wish everyone would look up what cryptofix means.
>afaik yokai watch couldnt be cryptofixed until recently, because you needed the KeyX from the reinand dumps to make workable xorpads, now you can.
i looked it up a few days ago but i still don't entirely get which applies to each particular release that comes out purely because i don't know enough about each release that comes out
Wow, Hyrule Warriors is pretty bad on o3ds, especially when compared to n3ds. Who thought this was ok?
Can I update my Emunand to the latest update?
What will I lose?
if you're really that deluded that you think every single person who recommends cakes is a developer, then there's no need for anything other than niceme.me because you're either retarded or tinfoil
if you honestly can't grasp that different people have different priorities and different ideas about what is or is not good, there's nothing worthwhile to say to you except "ok"
if you already have working *hax, then yes, otherwise no
Not him but they didn't patch all the major exploits yet right? I mean, gateway for example could still downgrade but obviously not for free.
Despite all the time it took, this update still seems rather rushed, menuhax still works and browserhax supposedly still works only on O3DS. 10.5 might be out soon.
>follow guide to transfer emuNAND to new SD card
>rxtools crashes to main menu when selected
what does it mean
referer to the "how do i date modified xDDDD"
do something that writes a file inside emunand, shut down your 3ds and check the dates, if you still dont understand your beyond redemption.
>Yokai Watch isn't N3DS exclusive/doesn't use the N3DS-exclusive Secure4, it's using standard 9.6+ seed crypto.
well i guess im retarded, didnt really care about yokai watch so i didnt bother fact checking.
the relevant info is whether its a n3ds only game, aslong as you have the relivant seeddb.bin with the proper keys for the game your trying to cryptofix youll be able to generate the xropads for cryptofixing, but if its a n3ds exclusinve game youll need to generate the xorpads on an actual n3ds or have the KeyX and the C constant.
if you lack either you cant cryptofix the game.
When a fucking idiot puts >rxtools as his reply to a question of someone having trouble, then they're a fucking idiot or a dev, especially when they tell people to use cakes right after. So please, just fuck off this thread instead of pretending people are out to get you and hate cakes for no reason.
The Retard guide has info on fixing it I think
I'm 1000% ready. Might take me a day or two to figure out all the Wii U shit and write a guide, though.
just update, famicom
I bet you the same people saying
are the ones saying
and posting a meme image
STOP THIS MEME STOP THIS MEME STOP THIS MEME
I think it might actually be bait, though. He posted the same thing over and over, and it's a really dumb question.
You're good to go. Couldn't really be in a better spot. 9.0-9.2 are essentially equal. Just follow one of the guides.
>do you just drop cakes into the root add a boot.cfg line and it just boots into your emunand ezpz?
>Does it keep all you games and shit?
Yes. The emuNAND partition is the same it just gets accessed by a different CFW, so all your stuff is the same.
also not a samefag of either of these guys but giving a bump for faster FTP justice
It can last for days while closed (unless the battery is very worn down)
There's never an order when it comes to installing .cia files.
Yes, you can also just get the update from the eshop if it's a .cia for a game that's your region.
We are not one person. Cakes is clearly better. If you're sore about no native region-free, it's on the way. Not much more needs to be said.
don't do it, we all suggest formatting sysNAND for a reason
Maybe since the full game isn't out yet they'll decide it's an N3DS exclusive at the last minute.
You may have copied it over wrong. What method did you use? There are multiple.
>all you can do is reverse engineer or poke around until you find something
thats called doing work, the poking and proding is often many many hours of testing a theory multiple times.
because the n3ds processor is 4x805mhz and the o3ds processor is 2x286mhz, did you just think the n3ds was an even bigger screen and a stick and thats it?
except i was
as for the guy that just said >rxtools, that adds nothing useful and is a dumb reply (since it's not applicable to the situation) but if you think it's anything other than just some guy that thinks rxtools is bad being dumb about it, then yeah, you're tinfoil
>Yes. The emuNAND partition is the same it just gets accessed by a different CFW, so all your stuff is the same.
but im gonna go ahead and say it
>cakes is better
>but lacks native RF
>but its coming
>but rxtools is shit because it lacks 9.6+
>which is also coming
>but thats not ok where as native RF is coming later is perfectly acceptable
nice double standard.
they both work fine.
rxtools has had a lot longer to develop these two features than cakes and rei have had. also, the people who developed region-free for rxtools were better devs than the people currently developing rxtools.
with that said, they both work "fine" (if you avoid the unstable nightlies), but only cakes has a decent future unless rxtools gets new devs
Well of course I already new that. After reading about how badly it runs on o3ds I wanted to try it out for myself.
It plays alright I guess, it's just after comparing the two i'd much rather play it on n3ds.
>nice double standard.
Huh. You need NTR regardless of your CFW. It has better region-free than rxTools. There's no workaround for rxTools not supporting newer firmware.
You're probably baiting but I don't want anyone to accidentally take you seriously.
I'm considering updating to 10.4 on cakes, does it still block unupdated games or is that just for Ironfall?
Also, when I unlink nands do I have to anything else but run Tinyformat on sysnand?
t. o3ds 9.2
the current rxtools devs are college students and its exam times, they arnt just bullshitting.
both work fucking fine, yes cakes is better but if someone was following a guide and used rxtools instead of cakes they arnt using a completely fucking worthless cfw thats going to destroy the universe unless they convert to cakes.
which is how every single one of you faggots make it sound when someone mentions rxtools
its also worth noting that even N3DS doesnt kick up to 804 on most o3ds games, you need a ntr plugin.
i've literally spent the past several threads saying "both work, you should try both and decide for yourself, but my opinion is rxtools has a lot wrong with it and cakes has better devs behind it"
I said the complete opposite of what I meant. Sorry.
>but if someone was following a guide and used rxtools instead of cakes they arnt using a completely fucking worthless cfw thats going to destroy the universe unless they convert to cakes.
>which is how every single one of you faggots make it sound when someone mentions rxtools
I just want people to not use rxTools anymore. I don't care if they switch.
Probably? I don't care a lot. I just wanna try it out.
taking a break from posting because I can't solve these fucking captchas
The patched .cia for english language won't allow you to save mid-battle
The clean .3ds version will allow you to allow you to save mid-battle
Both auto-save when the battles are finished.
The spotpass doesn't work on either because of the issue creating extra data.
From what i can tell normal saves work fine.
it's just the mid battle saves that have problems
Both are as good as each other on O3DS except rx has native regionfree (still needs NTR for foreign DLC though) which Cakes doesn't. Cakes has 10.4 emunand support on N3DS while rx is stuck at 9.5 but has upcoming support, and I read sometime that Cakes is just overall more reliable on N3DS. So basically:
That's all I know anyway. I'd honestly like to see an unbiased list of pros and cons of each but for now you'll only see people memeing here.
follow this tutorial. in the folder you assigned the plugin to, make a sound folder, and in the sound folder make a bgm folder. then just download all the music you want from smashcustommusic and plop it in the bgm folder
there's even a premade patch a few pages in for 1.1.3 if you're lazy.
reinject your backed up emunand
you did back it up right?
rxTools uses it's own AGB patch, except it doesn't have an AGB patch for N3DS, so it'll always fail because it ends up using an unpatched one, regardless of what you installed. You can either use a different CFW or you can run rxTools in Advanced > Pasta Mode when you want to play GBA (Dev Mode on older builds).
9.9 n3DS XL here, its brandnew. I just tried browserhax but it doesnt work because you have to update if you want to use the browser.
I dont have Cubic Ninja or OoT.
I cant use menuhax either on a new system without any previous hax, right?
Basically my only option is CN or OoT?
When can we expect a CFW to show up that outclasses the rest and can be installed without an emulated NAND? I don't feel like doing all this shit if better options arise in the future. I might just sit on 9.2U with Menuhax until then.
>tfw your Nintendog just died.
What did I do wrong? WHAT?
>Download nice theme
>Music blasts out at a billion decibels
Fuck sake. No idea what I'm doing but I presume I have to convert the preview .ogg, lower the volume with some random music software and then convert that back into .bcstm
Every other console with CFW options can just replace the original firmware with the custom one. That's what I prefer. Clearly all this 3DS shit is very crude if tampering with system files is too unsafe.
You can bypass the browser nag on N3DS if it comes with an actual browser. I don't know if 9.9+ N3DS ship with the dummy browser though, that would be a problem. Worth a shot: https://gbatemp.net/threads/browserhax-is-still-working.400991/
You can just install Menuhax from there.
That's normal, pasta and similar are SysNAND only. You should hold your SysNAND button and launch from there if you're gonna do it like that.
Same way they work with the Wii U version I suppose.
Link amiibo unlocks the spinner weapon, other Zelda characters unlock random weapons and everyone else gives random items and rupees.
if that emunand.bin file is the one you cloned to your sd through emunand9 then yeah, probably. all you have to do is drop the emunand.bin file into your emunand9 folder and hit "clone emunand.bin to emunand" iirc
you can use cakes in sysnand
i mean if you're retarded or something
the whole point of emunand is that it's a nice thing to have, if you fuck it up you can just scrap it and start over
you must be genuinely retarded if you think other consoles won't brick from tampering with system files
the bottom line is that the 3ds can have it so it has it, full stop
it's far more convenient and there's literally no downsides to it
Not unless you swap to another CFW or the rxTools team gets off their asses and finishes N3DS GBA patches. The stuff they're doing is meant to help/remove the need to install the patched AGB_FIRM file but it just fucks shit up for N3DS.
So iv got a situation
Iv got my hands on 9.8 O3DS and my question is does piracy just mean I should do the following
Browserhax - Menuhax - 9.2 Downgrade Browserhax - Menuhax -Emunand and Sysnand back ups - Unlink Hands - Rxtools - Update emunand to 10.4
I actually tried to switch over to reinand. I was told I could just dump the files on my SD card, put the firmare.bin in the rei folder, and edit my boot.cfg and load it. I did all that but when I get to the reinand splash page and hit start it freezes and doesnt boot
Yea so safe, like how if you mess something up doing cfw on any other system ever made youve just premabricked the system.
but yea fuck emulating the nand and not having to worry about it ever.
not to mention the reson cfw works on the default on other systems is because the firmware isnt encrypted using hardware AES and keygen, like the 3ds, you cant actually build custom firmware for a 3ds, 3ds cfw is just hijacking the system hardware to point to a different nand and then doing shit with elevated access there, and you dont need to flash anything for 3ds cfw, and since we dont have a flasher if we fuck something up in sysnand the system is dead.
even if you could modify the actual firmware files to do stuff youd still use emunand because its infinitely safer.
you can install cakes on sysnand if you want, it's just dumb to do when emunand is available and easily workable
psp modding doesn't need to touch the core system iirc, that's because the security on the psp isn't very good
i have no idea how ps3 modding works but generally speaking, if something touches core system files, having an emulated system that you can work with rather than the core one is preferable if there is no significant performance cost (which there's not on 3ds)
so i got a new sd card, and I never unlinked my nnid, i'm hoping to get the saves that are off my current sd and transfers everything over and then reset everything so i can play my games online on the emunand, am I fucking myself over anywhere here, is it gonna make me auto update after i format my 3ds
>you must be genuinely retarded if you think other consoles won't brick from tampering with system files
I didn't imply that, but alright.
That's what I was looking for, thank you.
wow friend you must really be fucking retarded
if you think cold-bootable CFW with what's effectively the ability to switch between consoles considering the fact that none of it should've been possible to begin with thanks to per-console encryption and tight security is 'crude'
I'm able to save mid-battle with hyrule warriors eng cia. Just can't access dlc/spotpass shit.
amiibo's don't unlock certain items, but zelda themed ones CAN unlock stuff.
I know ww link may unlock normal stuff after the initial scan.
ok, I realise this will sound stupid but where do i change the DNS? 3ds or my router? I have no idea what that is desu.
and which should I use?
220.127.116.11 as primary DNS
107.211.140.065 as secondary DNS
if there was a way to do boot2/ios modifications on wii u without touching core system files, the scene would have recommended it
the reason we can do it on the 3ds is because of menuhax, basically since the system loads themes at startup, we don't really NEED a boot modification. we can boot right into userland using menuhax, kernel escalate, and then boot into emunand with cfw. we don't need to touch core files for any of this, so we don't.
if there was a similar thing that could be done for the wii or the ps3 or whatever, you would see it done. it's WAY more convenient to be able to do everything you want without a brick risk.
I have an O3DS XL on 9.2 firmware.
I had 10.3 emunand installed but I wanted to update a game and decided to update emunand to 10.4 to do it.
I did this by booting up my 3DS, going to launch.rxtools.net on the browser, entering emunand, going to system settings and then system update.
Then I waited a bit and saw the update was successful and then it asked me to reboot the system.
I did that, but now whenever I try to go to emunand on rxtools, I just get a black screen. I tried this 5 times and it happened all those times.
How do I fix this? Can someone help me, please?
probably not, and there probably won't be much interest because this way is much, much safer. flashing boot2 or overwriting ios could brick you, fucking with ios installs could brick you, installing wuds could brick you, there was a ton of stuff that could brick you on wii. it's just that usb loading happened to be one of the things that was nearly impossible to create a brick and it was the most common thing people did.
the way things are on the 3ds, you can basically do whatever the fuck you want and while the brick risk is still there, you only risk bricking your emunand. if you brick emunand, you literally just format your sd card and start over, it doesn't fuck up sysnand unless you are really dumb.
I had this problem before, it was a pretty unique case
The cause for me was because I transferred my CIAs to my SD card (it's a microSD card with a SD card adapter, like pic) with a shitty SD card reader. I assuming it fucked up consistently when transferring CIA because it occasionally disconnects every 5 mins. So I got a microSD card reader instead and moved CIAs using that, and it works perfectly. Went from like 5 failed CIAs to all of them working with a different reader.
The only other reason I can think is your SD card is failing or something.
tl;dr Check your SD reader, get a different one if you can. Might have to buy a different SD card if it persists
But they figured out the key scramblers. the 2 keys and calculated the constant on the silicon. (correct me if im wrong).
Can't we just decrypt the whole system image using this knowledge, modify it to our likings, encrypt it and write it to nand?
Or is there another layer of encryption preventing us from doing this?
I asked this because right now, there are like 5 different CFW solutions that can be installed. It doesn't help that everyone on this board can't explain the technical differences between the different firmwares and instead just meme at eachother. "This firmware is better because it just is!"
I'm EU so it's even better playing this, Stella Glow and Yokai Watch early
There are also a lot of games which I own which are missing from this picture, but I'm thinking of getting CIAs for them for convenience sake
Fuck son, you better watch yourself because that shit can really
update emunand safely without affecting Sysnand at all as all linked nands do is share the hash file on the SD card.
o3ds with rxtools 10.4 and it runs just fine, but I made a backup of emunand and copied my SD card beforehand just to be safe, I'd suggest that in case your shit fucks up for some reason
For everyone with this problem, if you're on old 3ds, you can use FTBrony to avoid this issue, and if you're on new 3ds, you can use the built in Micro SD Manager. Granted, this will take longer to get files on and off of the SD card.
things are getting better all the time, the scene is still in flux but emunand is something that will probably be around forever on the 3ds because it's an extremely useful thing to have
if anything, the community will probably just standardize on a particular cfw eventually
i linked a post from two threads ago >>129199447 that explains the basics. basically, rxtools has been around longer and has region-free patches built-in and a few tools built-in that have been made obsolete by better things. the people who made it what it is have largely moved on, though, and the people left aren't that great. cakes is newer but has better devs and could potentially become pretty great, but right now it's still a bit hard to use. reinand is kind of its own things. everything else is largely irrelevant, pasta is only relevant for like one step in setting things up.
Oh yeah, dumping OTP and ARM9LoaderHax is great, coming SOON™
Trying to use julian20's sysupdate on the homebrew launch (through ironhax). I use FTP 3ds and then launch sysupdate, and I get the normal text. I press Y and it says booting cia and very quickly kicks me out back to the hombrew launcher. I have the 9.2.0-20U(Full)_n3DS.zip extracted into the root of my 3ds in the updates folder, so there shouldn't be a problem there...
It's not just encrypted, it's also signed. Encryption by itself is pretty useless once you've already taken control of one system that can decrypt the data.
We have the public keys to validate the signatures (those are in ctrtool I'm pretty sure), we don't have the private keys to make them. Those aren't even present on the 3DS. If the signing keys were to leak out of Nintendo, that would be a problem for them.
But yes, the attack is practical in some ways. N3DS keys were dumped by dumping the CTRNAND xorpad (getting access to the raw decrypted system image) and manually downgrading the system to O3DS 1.0 firmware which had some interesting bugs allowing for dumping of data that shouldn't be dumpable.
Pretty high, but I've had my 3DS downgraded since the sysupdater build with memechunk got leaked day 0, I exclusively download from MEGA and I have a 64gb SD card
You sir, are and idiot
All I know is rxtools just works and until I can play Taiko on cakes by just launching it I'm going to stay on rxtools
I actually have the cia but haven't installed it yet, I might play it eventually.
>vg only posting gay shota
yeah sounds about right
