3DS: 9.2 (10.3 downgrade, 10.4 userland only, eShop needs NVer 28 and up)
Wii U: 5.4 Loadiine (5.5.1 IOSU exploit coming soon™)
Vita: 3.51 (Userland)
PS4: 1.76 (Webkit)
O3DS: No abnormalities to report
N3DS: Cakes/Rei/Gateway supported; rxTools ≤ 9.5 only
-Nintendo released system update 10.4.0-29. It fixed memchunkhax2, the ARM11 kernel exploit necessary to downgrade.
-Menuhax and Browserhax still work, but that's it. Downgrading now risks being forced to update should you ever soft-brick.
-Home Menu 10.4 now checks whether IronFall is up to date, effectively killing Ironhax.
-NTR has been updated to work on N3DS emuNAND 10.4 https://github.com/shadowtrance/BootNTR/releases
>Is downgrading safe?
Not really. If you try, you only have one shot. If it fails, you'll be forced to update to 10.4. 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.
-5.4 Loadiine v2 out now http://wiiubrew.net/540/
-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.

How can I dump an installed game into a .cia?

If you don't want to burn in hell try this youtube vid you fucking retards.
The guy in the video is a little retarded but just follow his instructions
Reposting from the other thread
If it bothers you write your own
Just work on custom themes fag
This is why im a pirate!
actually, to anyone who cares, i just thought of a simple and much better way to do this
i'll clone my sysnand to emunand and delete the titles from emunand
if emunand bricks or otherwise breaks, hey, no big deal. if not, i can try it on sysnand with far less worry.
I admit I was a bit rude but how about you use google instead of waiting to get spoonfed.
Found a cia repack tool in a matter of seconds
I'm converting a .3ds file to .cia
What is the difference between these options?
Conversely, the more people that can fuck off unless they feel like applying a second of thought and reading comprehension.
I'm all for people doing it, but come on. It's not as streamlined as older consoles, yes, but that doesn't really change the process. You have people who over-analyze every small detail in every guide they read because it's too confusing (thinking too hard about it) or foreign (sysnand? emunand?).
Everybody is too scared of "breaking" their children's electronic toy because of their own user error, so they constantly need people on the same page as them.
So if I've installed all the homebrew stuff, unlinked the NANDs on my first SD card, will I be able to transfer the contents of the first card to a new one with larger capacity, put it in the 3DS and have everything work in the exact same way?
>tfw downgraded n3DS half a month ago
Asking here again because I don't know if anyone answered yesterday.
Is there any 3DS JRPG with the same "feel" Golden Sun had? I don't know how to explain it really, but maybe someone who played it and liked it could tell me.
Yeah, It won't show up there either.
This is really weird.
Anybody else have this issue?
You are attention seeking. Read the rules since you are obviously new here. If you can't be assed to do that, then go back to tempGBA, where you clearly desire and yearn for drama and attention.
Since you mentioned reddit, why don't you use that site then?
Unrelated but why people hate trips SO MUCH like it's the end of the world and an ACTUAL reason to be an ass to someone?
People just come here seeking help and are met with so much hostility it's actually sad.
Unrelated but why people use trips SO MUCH like it's the end of the world to be anonymous and an ACTUAL reason to stand out?
People already help here anonymously and are met with so much drama and attention seeking it's actually sad.
Collectivist culture. If you're curious, it was itself a new form of cancer that primarily surfaced in the era of Guy Fawkes masks. Being permanent newfaggotry itself, you can safely pay it no mind.
>a trip just paints a target
Anyway, any of you cucks know how to fix this issue or have encountered anyone with this issue before or what?
i report any trip that is acting like a faggot, like this one is
on the other hand, you fags are not doing much better by giving it attention
fucking report it and ignore it and get back on topic, christ
>none of your friends with 3ds were interested in the "work" to get to piracy even though they liked the idea of free games
What the fuck is wrong with people? I'm seriously the only one out of 10 people to downgrade and pirate.
etrian odyssey, pokemon super mystery dungeon and kid icarus uprising seem nice to me also check the pic and yes i'm too lazy to look for the newest version
Same reason people pay other people to change their oil. They're lazy, don't want to bother learning how to do something themselves, or are scared they will fuck something up. It's honestly not surprising they didn't do it.
>new to 4chan
>throws on a trip
>shitposts with pictures
Did you see the last thread and lurk the top of this one? Spoilered loli porn. Last thread? Avatarfagging and some faggot posting his downgrade like an unboxing as if it's some new shit we've never seen here.
This thread has attracted tempGBA faggots with the off-topic drama that happens on their forums, for instance;
>Spoilered loli porn.
lol, that has nothing to do with gbatemp, but if it really bothers you, just report it, mods will get it eventually
but seriously, just report people who are doing off-topic garbage and ignore them
I'm a manchild with no DIY experience
>tfw most of those games are shitty dragon quest/pokemon clones
Japan hurry the fuck up you and your xenophobia can go suck dick
If you do manage to remove them, you can buy a replacement back plate. They don't look too bad from the picture, mine is similar because when I first opened the back I didn't realise the screws didn't actually come out (kek) so I sat there loosening them for like an hour. Anyway point is I can still get mine out if I use the right screwdriver and press down really hard while turning. Just remove them and get a new plate.
Being anonymous is the entire point of posting here, and it does have its advantages. If you want to have a name associated with your posts, this simply isn't the right place to do that. If you come here to help someone else, you don't do it to get any merit. If you want that, just go somewhere else, as I'm sure people on GBAtemp would enjoy your help and they wouldn't mind you trying to get recognition for it as opposed to actually try to help.
Excluding shitposting boards (/b/, /r9k/, /trash/, /pol/, /v/, and so on) people aren't usually going to "be an ass" unless they perceive you acting as such. Which is exactly what happens when you want to use a tripcode to get admired by other users. No one minds an useful tripcode, but you should expect people to get angry when you abuse it.
I remember reading at one point they were considering using written english instead of moonrunes, can you even imagine such a thing?
translations would take no time at all, all their manga and novels, instantly ready for export!
It's depressing when you think about it, not like they aren't already using foreign words like fucking crazy.
There's also no fucking reason that super mystery dungeon is not released yet in europe until feb/march
I'm glad I don't have to pay for their cuck games anymore
>mfw I just got a warning for the first post in this thread
How's the hack to get more tries in the badge arcade?
no, I don't want to unlock badges, I just want free tries
because /b/ in /v/ culture and /v/ in muh /vg/
I just want /v/ to leave but then you realize /vg/ is actually the hellspawn of /v/ for general threads. so there's no escaping the anti-trip shitposting.
>Attempt to downgrade self to 9.2 and hard brick
I don't think anybody would really complain about broken English either. English is already stupid enough to matter how complex it may be at a specific point, a broken form wouldn't be much different.
Pretty sure what you heard was bullshit. Postwar Japan considered abolishing kanji due to illiteracy. Changing to English all of a sudden would make no sense. The main candidates were romaji and kana as far as I know.
>i'll take what I can get.
I can see accepting a port literally never intended for handhelds, but when it's from a fractured install base?
It's Nintendo's fault. There was no reason to make a New 3DS or the old one like it was.
At least you're out of the vicious cycle for this generation, until they try to catch a gen early again like the NX and milk their braindead customers further.
What do you think the nintendo support would tell us if we asked them why they're supporting pirates instead of people who want to buy the games? I mean, there's literally no reason not to pirate, they even included all of the translations and they're not going to bother to give something to make the wait feel worth it, and even then they would have no reason to, as Pokémon, Mario and Zelda games sell regardless.
Hint: Avoid older build n3DS LL's, backscrews are made out of really cheap metal scraps that are eaten by even correct sized screwdrivers after 10~20 unscrews/rescrews
>plastic has good quality but nearly nothing to attach itself onto from near the headjack/power button
>screws might as well be made from titanium or either a metal plate from a junkyard infused with tinfoil
>sometimes screens are TN for no fucking reason
I mean I don't blame them that much, but not moving the SD card position would've been literally all they had to do to get away with a shitty bottomplate
A two month delay could be anything, such as translating assets or getting a stock set up.
The more notable issue to press for Nintendo is why they're not coordinating these types of games for simultaneous world-wide releases.
Okay, I've been holding out on this question for quite a while. So I've noticed, most of the cfws have meme names, pastacfw due to leaked info on pastebin, ntr because of le kek meme, reinand because NGE waifu meme, but what meme is cakesfw based off of? I keep seeing the usual meme of calling cakes a meme, but what is the meme?
>What do you think the nintendo support would tell us if we asked them why they're supporting pirates instead of people who want to buy the games?
As someone who answers phones for a living, probably something along the lines of "Nintendo does not condone piracy. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused by extended release dates. Our development team is working hard to bring you the best experience possible. Is there anything else I can help you with today?"
And then after they hang up they'll mutter something under their breath about "Fucking stupid assholes calling to me to complain about shit I can't do anything about."
the meme is that
cakes is a meme is a meme
as for the name, the full name is
doesn't really seem like a reference to anything, but mid-kid pops in here occasionally so he could probably tell you himself
>ordered refurbished 2DS directly from Nintendo 2 days before 10.4
>just got it
>open system settings
Have they really just completely given up, or what?
Is there a badge arcade save with every goddamn badge available or at least a massive majority? I can't be fucked to spend any more money or cheat plays and get banned. I'm just never going to open up badge arcade again.
cuck itself needs to be re-filtered but their filtering is so shit that it filtered anything that had cuck in it period
How is Pastebin a meme?
Cell9 never confirmed that as the origin of the name as far as I know.
Since when is Rei Ayanami called Reisyukaku?
"Cakes is a meme" is an /hbg/ meme and is unrelated to the CFW itself.
My bad, I haven't typed that word in here for a while and kek just became the new thing for a while, so I didn't even be bothered to try typing cuck anymore. Thanks for letting me know
I didn't send my 3DS in to be repaired because I feared that they'd replace it with an updated one. Now I'm trying to order a new analog stick to see if I can fix the messed up stick myself (it's not properly registering up/down movement). Kind of wish I had just sent it in before hacking it.
I rewrote the firmware_download batch script from the retard guide as a bash script. Could someone give me an md5 of the firmware.bin file just to check if the files were merged properly? I'm not too confident in my bash knowledge.
>implying they would bother updating it
>implying the 0.0001% of users downgrading and pirating effects them in any way
If it was as easy as downloading a .exe like it is for PC, then it would be a problem. The VAST majority will not bother or will be too scared to downgrade.
Most just update the second an update is available because of the annoying pop-up anyway, so normans are fucked.
I'm not sure of something, I hope the cakes dev can see this or anyone who knows.
What he's trying to achieve with the AGB thing is to make emuNAND read gba games without messing with sys and just install them like a normal cia?
It really shouldn't be too hard to blacklist cuck but whitelist cuckold
Still wanna know about the badge saves I could really care less about having all of them it's just that having all of them gives me a better chance of getting the ones I actually want that are never in circulation
>I mean I don't blame them that much, but not moving the SD card position would've been literally all they had to do to get away with a shitty bottomplate
>yfw they designed it deliberately to give homebrew/cfw users a hard time
Basically, there's this shitposter shitposting ">cakes" whenever someone says something about using Cakes because he can't understand different people have different needs and different opinions from him.
Thanks. seems like I did everything right then.
Here's the script.
Okay, person from last thread here. When I try to play DLC maps on FE:A I get the message:
"Could not detect an SD Card. Please download your downloadable map agains."
and also, when I try to enter the store from the gate thingy to buy maps I get this
"please use touch controls to make selections in these menus" and it sends me back to Annas menu.
>finish installing cfw on 3ds
>realize i'm not sure what i even want to play if anything
I can turn on the web browser but it keeps kicking me back to the home menu. Only bought this to
play Fates before all this stuff happened, so I don't have anything else.
Themes are region locked? i tried installing some CIA themes but it doesnt work.
Wait, does anyone know where to get 2DS update files? The mega link only has regular and new 3DS.
Also, I should probably just use profi200's sysUpdater, right?
I have a N3DS 9.2 RxTools, looking to update to 10.4 ReiNand.
Is this the correct order of steps?
>put rei folder and Reinand.dat in sd root
>put 3ds/rei folder in my 3ds folder
>edit boot.cfg to accomodate ReiNand
>launch reinand and update through system settings
that it? Or do i put the entire ReiNandv3.1 folder in my microSD card root? I'm really confused as i thought /3ds/,3dsx , .smdh were suppose to go in my 3ds folder
you know why, right
it's because it fucks with certain games
mid-kid said a few threads back he was almost finished with a proper implementation of it that should work without breaking anything
I have a question for the gurus out there.
The guide I was following said I could update the emunand from the system settings. Now the current stable emunand is 10.3 but I hear 10.4 is out now. How do I update to 10.3?
>Now the current stable emunand is 10.3 but I hear 10.4 is out now. How do I update to 10.3?
Whut? That's not true. You can update your emuNAND to 10.4 without any problem. You SHOULD NOT update your sysNAND to 10.4 tho, because you'll noot be able to downgrade your 3DS anymore.
I'm not sure I understand.
I saw that thread on gbatemp where a someone irreversibly fucked their 2ds because they installed a regular 3DS firmware and it couldn't progress past the part where it tells you to turn the 3D on.
I don't want that to happen.
That's the "don't downgrade below 6.x" thing. 4.x system settings doesn't recognize that the 2DS exists and will ask you to turn the 3D slider up. Going to 9.2 with Old3DS files is just fine, I've done it twice.
Ok so where do I go from here guys? This stuff is really confusing.
I'm having trouble transferring my data from my old SD card to my new one. I followed the directions linked in the pastebin, but I can't expand the partition because windows says that there are errors or something and I can't fix those errors because then the 3DS doesn't detect the card. What do?
>still have to unwrap my shit every time
At least I'm pretty sure I did it, it made another folder in the Private folder or w/e it's called. What are some other things that'll let me know whether or not I did it right?
You have 10 seconds to name ONE non-weeb game worth pirating.
Oh wait, you can't.
Embrace the weebness, senpai.
So I just got one of these chunky faggots for my XL. Which games should I pirate to try it on?
Followed this guide to upgrading my SD to 64GB.
I allocated the entire disc space to the nand partition after transfering my old SD card, i could boot into emunand once, even though i was unable to launch bigbluemenu through the home screen. I ultimately crashed trying to convert a CIA through FBI (I couldn't return by pressing home)
Now booting into rxtools gets me stuck on the yellow screen when turning on the console.
I'm gonna start over again tomorrow, is there anything i didn't take account of?
>another shitty day at work
>play SK2 and beat the shit out of everything while looking at bouncing tits
Animal crossing is pretty relaxing after a hard day of shitty work.

Any firmware under 10.4 can downgrade. There is, however, a chance of softbricking, where the only way to recover is to boot into recovery mode and having to update to 10.4 and join the NEVER EVER club. A good way to increase your chances of successfully downgrading is to format your card before attempting.
I've somewhat experienced the same thing you went through, though their reasons were for loyalty reasons (even though there are some Jap-only games they wanted to play). I had one interested in it, but I wasn't near him at the time to help and he was afraid of even getting homebrew on his system.
>not using the tip of your fedora to navigate through games
Don't know what to say anon but it sure smells like newfag in here
>17)Put the SD card back into the 3DS and hold L while you turn it on
>18) Instead of the Homebrew Launcher you will now see the CTRBootManager.
I get neither but instead get the standard launcher. What do? Reinstall menuhax yet again?
yeah, the most common update carts i can think of (USA, dunno about EUR/JPN) are ORAS to 7.x and Sm4sh to 8.1
then you can use rxtools web browser to get into sysupdater and update to 9.2
Before you get a bigger sd card, if you really want to attempt the downgrade first, do that before purchasing an sd card. If you softbrick, you'll be stuck on 10.4 and have no use for the sd card until 10.4 exploits are discovered.
That said, I use a 64gb sd since it was only $20. I don't think I will be able to use it all, but it's a nice leeway to have. You could probably find it cheaper though or settle with 32gb even.
Cart updates don't include the web browser/eShop/NVer at all (except 9.9+ which include a dummy browser). *hax 2.5 doesn't seem to rely on a web browser anymore, which is good, but it needs a 9.0+ system to work. You'd need to buy one of the rare few games with a 9.0-9.2 cart update and go from HBL to CFW.
It's probably easier to just buy a new Old 3DS instead of bothering to update it if it's that fucked.
After a downgrade, you don't need to transfer anything over assuming there's nothing on your O3DS since you said you found it. Once (or if) you are on 9.2, you just start doing everything from scratch again. I used the 4gb that came with my N3DS to downgrade, then switched to the 64gb afterwards.
Let's say if I somehow fuck up my sysnand in the future and have a NAND.bin from Emunand9, will it be restorable via a hardmod? Or there's be encryption bs on the way?
I need help transferring my SD card to a larger one. I'm downgraded, but I've already made an emunand. I did the transfer thing linked in the pastebin, but my 3DS isn't reading the card.
I formatted my sd card to 64kb allocation. I transfer my old sd card that has 32 kb allocation to the new one using easeus partition master. Does the new sd card still have 64lb allocation?
Yes, flashing your NAND directly with a hardmod would work.
By "transfer" do you mean just copy over the files manually, or clone partitions from one card to another one? If it's the former, no. If it's the latter, then yeah, it'll likely copy it 1:1 over to the new one, meaning you'll have 32KB. But then again, that depends on the implementation. If you can get information about partitions using that software, just try it and check.
thanks but im a paranoia fag and im just gonna use 3dsnus to get 10.4 and use sysupdater.
but i appreciate the response even though i didn't bother spell checking my post like a mongoloid
VC is fucky with cfw n3ds, you have to do shit with sysnand (like patching AGB_FIRM and you have to install the cia in sysnand and emunand)
Do you have a nand.bin backup?
if so you can get a hardmod to flash you nand
Would OoT3dHax work for SYSNAND 10.4, and if so, would the Save Data Transfer Tool work on putting the hack save into a Digital Download copy?
I don't own the game. And as far as I know it's not even out yet.
I would have tried to convert the one from the link, but that guy on 3dsiso is either trolling or too stupid to provide a proper download link.
So what other is this general other than a helpdesk? Shitposting?
Uhh so guys, I know you hate helping but I have a little question.
I "unlinked NAND", then it restarted on its own and I got a factory fresh boot it seems. Is this my emuNAND? The one I'll use for everything, install shit on and update to 10.4 while sysNAND remains on v9 etc?
I'm not sure if it can be used for that. I just use Pasta to install stuff to SysNAND, since it patches signature checks and boots me back to SysNAND.
should have used free software you proprietary cuckold
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET
THIS IS WHAT YOU DESERVE
[code] dd [/code] and [code] gparted [/code] will do the same things as that tool.
If your 3ds won't read it at ALL it's possible that the partition table is fucked or the data is corrupted. You might have to reformat it and just give up on the transfer.
Ill try that. Ive just been running in circles for the past 20 days because all the N3DS guides told me to install using cakes and rxtools but they dont even pass signature checks on the N3DS.
Where can I get the latest pasta?
A vulnerability needs to be found and released first, and it's going to take a lot of time. Last time it took one year, and it has been exceptional and completely unexpected. Not to mention it literally happened last month. Check back in two years, I guess.
Anyone have any idea what version retail Wii U's are being sold with?
Would mostly be interested in piracy, it's okay if I have to do some long chain thing like loadline seems to be. Don't care about online at all.
What about if I bought a new, sealed unit off ebay?
Is there any way to backup/copy a physical game cartridge using RxTools, FBI, BBM, or any homebrew? I don't want to lose my saves and .cia versions of the game don't seem to be compatible for some reason when I try and copy the save over.
So any way to just directly copy the cartridge itself?
i havent touched my WiiU since july and its off the grid so i dont know which version i'm at. I just bought xenoblade chronicles X on whim though. Is there actual piracy on the level of 3ds on the wiiu or is it all just a whole bunch of kablooie? It's not like there are a lot of games i want on the wiiu.
close and re-open emunand and check again the system version, mine has said ver. instead of the CFW wording b4 even though i was on emuNAND
>if u havent installed anything yet
>it still says ver when u reboot and go straight to system settings
then just dont do anything latefag, cus u cant downgrade the sysNAND anymore
So, I can use safesysupdater to update my 3DS using the same files one would use to downgrade, right? Is it any safer/riskier than a downgrade? I think I need to upgrade to 9.2, some cia aren't working right and I could use menuhax.
>Mario & Luigi Paper Jam Bros (U)(RF).cia
Will I use sysNAND for literally anything? Can I set it up to never boot into sysNAND?
not really, and yes
For my n3ds, my Ace3ds doesn't work on my 9.2 emunand, but it does work on my 9.2 sysnand. It works on my 9.2 and 10.3 emunands on my old 3ds's.
I followed the gbatemp guide for my n3ds and the LITERALLY RETARDED guide for my o3ds's and they all coldboot to emunand if I don't push any buttons when booting it up. (I can hold L to boot to sysnand)
>tfw ntr with it's limited memory capacity being smuggled into what free space it can get, is letting you take full screenshots when the official fucking firmware not only has the means but teases you about not letting you do it.
Why is no fun allowed for retail peasants? i feel so sorry for them, well not really.
It is confusing though. Are screenshots really such a bad thing?
Yeah it does but your launcher should have a entry for HBL menu anyway.
I wonder if there's an easy way for menuhax to use a different name for ctr, or for HBL cia to use a different one (although the former would be more convenient for mashers launcher updates).
Menuhax in emunand would lead to the same thing btw
My firmware is 9.4.0-21U (3DSXL), what are my options?
Should have paid attention.
you cant access unlinked emunand cia titles from sysnand hbl (which is what you get with coldboot) with stuff like svdt which is useful for getting saves from sysnand to emunand.
try holding Y when you start hbl loader, if it redscreens when you try and load HBL it means hbl crashed.
because picking homebrew channel at boot starts homebrew channel in sysnand, because you havent started your custom firmware that boots into emunand yet.
The reason why HBL CIA starts CTRbootmanager is because it is programmed to start the boot.3dsx which is usually the homebrew channel but thanks to coldbooting many change the filenames around so it boots ctrmanager instead. You are still in emunand though because you launched it from emunand.
So I'm transferring my emuNAND from a 32gb SD card to a 128gb one, and for some reason my installed titles aren't showing up.
I backed up emuNAND + SD card contents, formatted new SD card, injected emuNAND backup, copy files over (I know its working since I had a custom theme and it boots into it),
Have I missed a step here? It's odd isn't it.
you have to "reinstall them" through a manager (they'll start to install and then say they are already installed, then they will show up on the home menu/wherever you put them)
>Hyrule Warriors: Legends comes out in nip land
>download it from 3dsiso
>its in english
no one is this stupid
memchunkhax might work but memchunkhax2 exploits something added in 9.6 that got patched in 10.4
he can try the non memchunkhax2 version on profi200 github.
use oothax to get menuhax, menuhax has the highest reported success rate when downgrading, alternativly turn off your n3ds and put it in a drawer and hope maybe somebody makes sysupdater more stable for downgrading.
