3DS: 9.2 (10.3 downgrade, 10.4 userland only, eShop 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.
So I noticed when exploring my SD there was a NAND.bin file since god knows when, I asume this is my initial sysNAND from before I did anything, containing my NNID, StreetPass and eShop data.
How safe is it to inject this on my current emunand to make sure that data is there?
Or should I just stick with my fresh new emuNAND? (at some step when creating it I used TinyFormat on it thinking I was formating sys)
I already backed emu up but I'm kind of unsure if injecting NAND.bin will render my current emu unusable or not
I'm using SLIDEHAX on my 7.1 3DS. I hit the slider, the screen goes yellow then grey, then nothing else. How long should I wait for it to complete??? It's been half an hour.
>Please save your data in any software currently in use, and then restart the system.
But I don't have anything up. No theme, deleted cookies/history, etc.
What's up? 10.3 New3ds here, trying to get Browserhax up but it keeps giving me this error.
I'm currently on RX Tools 9.5. If I wanted to switch to Reinand and update emunand to 10.4 how would I go about doing that? And is it even worth it to switch now or should I wait until RX Tools has an update? I have plenty to keep me busy until Fire Emblem comes out in the USA.
>MFW I have 70gb of games but all I end up playing is Puzzle and Dragons
>only want to play GBA games
bit late there
ironhax requires a way to get into hbl initially to set up
entry points into hbl are
browserhax, which won't work on 10.3 as of 10.4
oot3dhax, requires a powersaves dongle or a friend with hbl access
ninjahax, requires cubic ninja
after that, you can set up ironhax if you want, just keep in mind it won't work on 10.4, they patched it
>All these games.
>Only play DS games, GBA games and harmoknight
Hacking was a mistake.
How do you guys do the custom menu screens?
I'm still using rxTools 2.6 and booting from the browser because I'm a huge fag, but I do have 10.3 emunand
I guess I'll actually put the time and effort into getting emunand to autoboot correctly for once. Had some issues getting it to work before and decided it wasn't really necessary but hey why not
You make a png that is the right resolution, name it whatever it is that it needs to be named (imagedisplay.png i think), put it in your menuhax_manager folder, then set it in menuhax manager.
Its the third from the bottom option.
I did a downgrade on my 9.8 n3ds and it got an error part way through. It still boots but only without the menuhax SD in it and it can't launch the system settings or the internet browser. Is there anything I can do to come back from this?
I'm on rxtools using the esh- Oh, you actually bought a n3ds
64 gb senpai, still have like 8 left to fill with "l don't know what essential game l'm missing"
Thanks anon, l really don't want to hide Franny's face and l wish there was a way to change that spongebob thing god damn it.
I can't use the internet browser or menuhax. How am I going to reinstall menuhax?
I did. Maybe you should read it because this issue isn't in there.
IT CAN'T USE THE INTERNET BROWSER
>this issue isn't in there
>it's practically at the very top, not even hidden inside another pastebin
>can't use the internet browser
get oot3d and a powersaves dongle or ninjahax and try the 9.2 payload, if that doesn't work get whatever-firmware-you-were-on payload, once there run the downgrader again
i need some help. every time i get to 9.2 i cant access the homebrew channel. now the 3ds has a new update (which im avoiding) so im stuck on 9.2 and cant go back to 10.3 for the browser hack. anyone got any tips?
It literally isn't. Where the hell do you see a "partial downgrade" section in the pastebin.
Do you think that there would be any issue if I tried smashbroshax?
Partial downgrade or not, read the 'reminders' bit and do it. I will tell you something that may be helpful and not in there: A few people with partial downgrades it sounds like have redone the downgrade 9.2 to 9.2 and it worked.
The error message is different but here's what I did to get Browser Hax to work every time
1)Set your DNS to Tubehax with primary ending in 165 and secondary ending in 065.
2)Turn Off WiFi
4)Ignore the WiFi has to be on error
Type in the browser hax URL, but use the fright version, not auto.
7)Turn on WiFi
8)Highlight the browser icon
9)Shut down 3DS
10)Turn on 3DS
11)Spam A to get into browser
12)Quickly go to your bookmarks and load the bookmark you just made
It worked keep every time for me using this method.
If it didn't work, simply turn off your 3DS and try again from step 8
>Try to update my Arceus theme by replacing a bunch of files from a premier theme
>Top screen scrolls really nice
>bottom screen animation is neat
>but i can't change sound effects
Is there a premium Pokemon theme with animated bottom screen and scrolling top screen?, might just transfer to that one
What's the difference between cakes and pasta CFW?
Glad I could help
>>Do you think that there would be any issue if I tried smashbroshax?
aside from the fact that nobody can ever get it working, no
you can try it, but it seems like nobody ever gets it working, that's why i never mention it
I downgrade to 9.2 but now i cant access the browser hack. it just loads a blank page.
I just like posting cute girls, I just happen to have a large buffalo folder
I'll stop though
>actually installing cakes
Why didn't you listen?
Relax friend. I'll ease on the Bell and make the images more varied.
You won't even know it's me.
Unless I'm on mobile, then it becomes obvious
Why is Karen so shit? She ruined the whole thread.
I take cute girls out of my database
and turn them into themes
although it would be easier if I knew what to make the bottom screen
like if it's landscape or something
You cakes devs are total buttmad faggots. The only people installing your shit are braindead shitbells who have to follow your hijacked pastebins verbatim. Nice try using anon posts to push your garbage though.
Hey if your CFW fails to boot 50% of the time you would shitpost too.
Glad l could help you dummy.
If you could make a theme out of lolie Von Karma l would be your best friend.
Tell us your problem senpai, we might be able to help you out.
So I followed what I assume was a bad pastebin ( http://pastebin.com/j9DFi1SE ) and I was getting some weird shit where I couldn't boot into emuNAND. I tried uninstalling menuhax in hopes that if I did that, then I could EmuNAND9 format for a emuNAND without menuhax fucking it up. I think that just fucked it up more, and now even after reinstalling menuhax (which gave me several errors when I did so), I can't reopen emunand9, and now I can't even get into the Homebrew Menu from the Ctr Boot Manager.
If I just format my 3DS, can I start over?
Maybe I'm not doing it right. I have coldboot to rxTools/Homebrew, I just go straight to HB and launch FBI in there since it's the only way I can use FBI in Sys
I tried injecting it into the H&S app but it doesn't work, the app jsut dissapears, perhaps this is wrong?
How many times have you tried? Has it worked before or did you just downgrade? If yes, then Download a downgrade checker program and launch it in HBL, see if you have a partial downgrade .
no clue, but i doubt it would fix the browser since cartridge updates don't touch nver stuff, including the browser
it would also definitely prevent you from using official sysupdater and you'd be forced to use tenthousandtriesupdater
Are there any downsides to using a 128GB MicroSd on a O3ds? I've heard performance becomes slightly slower and apparently BBM might not detect it? Is that just people fucking up in setting it back up?
Now I think I know whats happening, when you boot you need to go to he rxmenu the rxmode then "Boot SysNAND" there the H&S should appear and do it this way. becareful not to coldboot again when you boot sysnand from the rxmode.
because official sysupdater relies on mch1 which was patched in 9.3
the sysupdater mods (julian20's and safesysupdater) use mch2, which is an unstable workaround and hence takes 20 thousand tries to get working
anyway, going to bed. might want to back up your profile and reformat your sd card and see if that helps, otherwise oot3d is probably your best bet. it's not that difficult to do, honestly.
how do i use the gateway blue card? i installed the blue card fix in emunand via devmenu, put the ds firmware on the card and when i boot it in emunand i get black screen, and in sysnand i get the power off error
reformat system memory and your sd card, and start from scratch with th FOR RETARDS pastebin
it ends in "...PW"
don't go fooling with NNID, GBA, DSi, eshop, saves etc etc your first try until you confirm that your coldboot works and you can install cias. then get fancy
/hbg/ sorry if I might look like a retard but I've looked in the guides and found nothing about this.
After getting the boot menu, homebrew doesn't work anymore. It only does if I restore the boot.3dsx from the starter pack, but then I don't get the boot menu and can't access emuNAND unless I undo that. Is there any way to make both work?
>install cfw on 3DS some weeks ago
>would you like to use the 3DS circle pad adapter?
I backed up the save but it happened even though all my other saves are fine
I had completed everything available in caravan and had just beaten G-Rank Seregios (G-2?). Around 300hours played
should I roll a girl this time or move to X with translations?
If you're setting up the emuNand, the boot menu will change. You gotta keep track of which ones you want, and make sure that boot.3dsx is the one that needs to launch first. People typically rename the homebrew channel boot_hb.3dsx
Not the guy but how do I do that? I have an emuNAND.bin lying around.
Also, will my installed shit disappear automatically when I reinject it or do I have to manually clear that out of my SD?
never went to /mhg/
I was a solo hunter so it feels like a really STEEP hill to get back all my progress
Hm, so I guess all I can do is keep it there and rename if I need it. Not a major problem, I just wish I could configure menuhax without popping the SD card into my laptop. Thanks anon.
are you using the latest version, and are you sure you have the proper firmware.bin/firmkey.bin in the proper folders?
emunand won't boot up properly if that isn't set up right (and i don't think you bricked if that's the case)
did sysupdater give you any weird messages, or did it install like usual?
Hey anons, so my friend is trying to move his shit from his default n3ds sd card to his new 32 gb sd card, and his computer is saying that it needs to format his default sd card before it can access the data. What do?
I didn't even know there was PS1 emulation for N3DS, but considering it runs "alright" on PC of all things I shudder to imagine the struggle it is to run that shit on a 3DS.
Would it be worth buying a psp specifically for hacking it? Can you even hack psps sold in stores? I've never looked into psp hacking.
I'm not the anon you were responding to though.
Hey, bit of a problem here.
I updated by emunand to 10.4 but now everytime I launch rxtools and choose to open emunand, i just get a black screen and nothing happens. I am using rxtools 2.6 btw.
>see Hyrule Warriors o3ds gameplay
>looks like total shit, what the fuck that frame rate
>install on o3ds
>plays and runs better than it looks
I would have been pissed if I bought it, but I could see myself playing through this, I guess.
Anyone have the custom pokemon themes of red, blue and green version? pls
Latest version of? SysUpdater, yes. CakesFW, yes. Not sure what else.
The firmware/firmkeys are the same ones I've had when I downgraded, so I assume I might have the wrong keys now?
As for sysupdater, I was looking away, but it was going down the list, shooting off green SUCCESSes.
Easier than the ps3? i remember all I did for that was put a update file on a usb and it was jailbroken. So you can still hack the newly sold ones in stores?
This makes me happy now, I guess I'll buy a psp, I don't need old firmware on it right? Like any from any store would work?
and in case of
>are you sure you have the proper firmware.bin/firmkey.bin in the proper folders? emunand won't boot up properly if that isn't set up right (and i don't think you bricked if that's the case)
I probably fucked this up just now too, because I was preparing a new .bin without the emuNand's folder taking space. WELP.
nothing is idiot proof to a sufficiently talented idiot
/hbg/ is proof of that
because 3dsiso's community is shit and comprised entirely of brazilians, and then two or three actual uploaders
Are ALL MODELS of the PSP Go hackable? Can I just stab my finger randomly on an ebay listing and count on piracy happening?
I'm not really a fan of the design on the earlier ones, but I'll consider them if absolutely necessary
Again, I'm guessing this is bait but I'll answer it anyways, If you softbrick (i.e fuck it up) you'll be forced to update, which would put you in 10.4 which cannot be downgraded. one shot at downgrading.
Oh my god you glorious son of a bitch... thank you !!!
You could use this pic (from the waist up) for the top right and if your use a tealish/gray color for the white space with a gradient going from top to bottom.
Or dont do it if lm asking too much. Anyway, l'm gonna save that webm.
hey welcome back, almost done arranging the MIDI of the pawa pro song from the other day for the buffalo bell theme
i'm arranging it in a chiptune program and converting to midi so it currently still sounds like chiptune whoops
It's like midnight
imouto chan is sleeping in the next room
All you need to do is be sure the name in CtrBootManager points to the correct Homebrew ____.3dsx
>People typically rename the homebrew channel boot_hb.3dsx
Unless they have any intention of using the emuNAND launcher hblauncher_loader. Then they name it something with four characters.
I started work on one, but lost interest.
How about these?
That would just make me feel bad knowing there's no fucking Doom port for the 3DS.
Seriously what the fuck, I'm getting upset just thinking about it now. How the actual fuck does that even fucking happen?
My fucking printer runs Doom.
There is one. It even supports 3D. I don't think it has gotten support in a while, though.
He only ever held 1 gun.
Hello Indian Tech Support /hbg/
When I found out that you can download GBA games on your 3ds free of charge, I was ecstatic. However, I am retarded and cannot figure out what in God's name I have to do to download cakes if I already have RxTools installed, or if I don't even need cakes to get the AGB file patched onto my sysNAND.
Maybe a helpful anon will reply to me,
gave her the D when I put her to bed jk that's kind gross
install gba games and agb firm signature patch in rx devmode on rxtools 3.0+ so both things are on sysnand first then install agb firm signature patchand the same gba games to emunand. oh and you'll have to inject fbi to health and safety on sysnand with the rxtools boot menu options (it will also create a restoreable backup of regular h&s for later) so you can use it to install things on sysnand whemn you run rx devmode.
>implying the printer port wasn't official
does anyone have this game? can't find a working link anywhere.
Music works now.
I didn't know what to use for the bottom screen. I was using the Doom 2 boxart at first, but I think the amount of different colors is too distracting.
I'm open to suggestions for any part of this theme.
Wew lads, i finally fixed the problems i had.
Bottom screen scrolls.
Has sound effects when opening an app/opening 3ds from sleep mode

From last thread;
>nobody wants to make my niche themes

>almost 200 downloads
You can do it anon.
A top->bottom gradient would have been too much work, seeing as the image isn't transparent
but I did a few things
I chucked it into 'Von Karma'
Haven't done anything with colours or anything though
Sorry if my autism is too much but everything's there or is there something I missed
>1. Once you have FBI installed on sysNAND you need to run sysNAND in Pasta mode to be able to install .cias, to do this Hold down L when launching rxTools and scroll to the "Advanced" Tab and launch Pasta from there, you are now in sysNAND but can use FBI
>2. Now that you have FBI open change destination to "NAND" and install AGB_FIRM.cia. NOTE: fooling around with sysNAND always runs the risk of bricking, so tread with caution on this step
>3. Now all you need to do to play GBA games is to install your GBA .cias to both sysNAND and emuNAND
>4. Once you've installed both through FBI on the respective NANDs you need to launch sysNAND through pasta mode to be able to play NOTE: you will need to do this every time you want to play launch the titles, they will not launch on vanilla sysNAND nor EmuNAND
I boot up into HBL, launch rxtools holding L, go to Advanced, then boot into Pasta Mode, install the game through FBI (exactly how I would normally on my emuNAND), exit FBI, run the game.
Downside is to view them, or play them, I need to reboot the 3DS and go to the Pasta emunand, I can't do it from normal rxtools where all my pirated 3DS games are.
Yes, when installing with FBI, press L to install to NAND, NOT to SD. Do this with both sysNAND and emuNAND. You'll need to run Pasta to do this in sysNAND. I don't know about rxTools, but I imagine you will still need to have the patched AGB_Firm
Its rather easy to remove the white though.
This was like 2 minutes, but with a little more effort it could look fine.
I don't personally coldboot into my CFW (I haven't set that up yet). But I do know that you can setup themehax with a custom theme.
My sysnand currently has a custom splatoon theme on it, but I use themehax to boot into homebrew from a cold start. Then from homebrew I launch my CFW.
If you don't have any alternative entry points into homebrew, I wouldn't fuck with your sysnand theme though. Otherwise Murphy will raise his ugly head and screw you over.
I have that same picture saved. I can run FBI through HBL in sysnand and install it to nand this way right?
so install it to NAND while on sysnand and emunand for agb_firm
install to SD for games on sysnand and emunand?
I appreciate it, thank you. I should be more confident in my stuff now I got a better grasp of how to use YATA+ now.
Yes, just make sure that before using FBI in sysNAND that you load Pasta first, or it will fail. So, HBL -> Pasta (or miniPasta) -> HBL -> FBI and install directly to NAND. When you press L in FBI you will see it switch between NAND and SD as the target destination. Some people have to uninstall the original before they can install the patched one (it replaces official components which allow you to play GBA VC games regularly)
Doom runs on fucking everything, it's not a fucking joke. I have a $10 mp3 player from back when mp3 players were a thing and I put doom on it just because.
Most TVs these days have a doom port.
Paint.net has a picture morph feature that you can use to make it another "angle". It's what I used to do it.
It takes a bit of getting used to, but tge results look professonal as fuck.
It's in the starter pack from smealum's page. Just follow the pastebin guide's first links.
I can launch games from emuNAND fine, but I'm hearing many different things from different people, plus I use >cakes so your experience is going to be different from mine.
I can't tell which I hate more, the clickbait article title or the even more clickbait link since it drops a few convenient words.
>Nintendo Responds - Changes Fire Emblem Fates Western Localization
Love what you did with the top screen anon. l wonder what can be done with all the empty space in the bottom one (also your link appears to be broken for me)

No regrets whatsoever.
Anon, I fucking love you. After days of trying to get this to work, I get some straight answers out of you.
Can I paypal you some money or something? O can finally play advance wars 2 thanks to you.
So.. they're not changing anything? I don't understand this controversy at all.
>Can I paypal you some money or something?
>After days of trying to get this to work, I get some straight answers out of you.
Then that means in my absence I have failed you.
Just tell me happy birthday and then tell me to fuck off
>make themes i'm going to use for myself
>end up uploading it
>don't even use it
People are going to be paranoid about every damned thing. It was stated a week ago that the component replaced in the NAND by the patched AGB_firm isn't even a vital system component, and even if you screwed up really bad it wasn't likely to brick anything.
I can only offer advice on the things I had to work out. Glad it could be put to some use.
>make space jam theme
>love it for whatever reason
>only has like 20 downloads
Come on a slam, and welcome to the jam.
I'm also thinking of changing up the sfx so the arrow click is jam, and opening a game is slam.
Or welcome to the jam if it would fit. Don't think it would though.
Did you put cfw on your psp back in the day?
I'm now installing 15+ GBA games that work thanks to you. I'll probably do more later. I'm more excited for them than I am for the 3DS games to be honest

Anyone have any links to good places for Japanese CIA files? I really need to practice my grorious nihongo more, and this is a perfect opportunity. Particularly looking for the first Yokai Watch in Japanese or any of the Medabots and DQM games.
3dsiso's search is garbage
You're pretty fucked. You could wait and maybe someone to make something with network wizbiz to make your 3ds think 10.3 is still the latest, but then you won't be able to use your 3ds until then.
To delete rxTools completely, I just delete the folder on the root of my SD card, right? The tutorial I originally used updated to using reiNAND so I can't remember if there are any extra folders or files.
Is it even worth switching to ReiNAND?
five times actually
>dont update your 3ds past 4.5 the first flashcart is coming (gsteway)
>dont update your 3ds past 9.2 wait for gateway to release their downgrader so you can downgrade to 4.5 and get the first free cfw

>dont update your 3DS past 9.9 rumors are surfacing that something will come for you guys soon
>dont update your 3ds past 10.3 you'll be able to get a downgrader soon. get hax installed while you can!
five fucking warnings
Since you're considering rei, I'm assuming you're on n3ds. If that's the case then absolutely. No one knows when rxTools will support emuNAND with current firmware, while cakes and rei both have it up and running almost immediately.
buffalo anon, i am going to bed. (music anon)
wasn't able to finish arranging the song tonight but it's close to done: i think i will have it ready by tomorrow night. sorry to disappoint: i can post a WIP if you want, but it's still using chiptune synths/instruments at the moment
(posting bell to make this post easier to see)
Am I retarded? I'm running rxTools on 8.1U emunand (too nervous to update, probably am retarded). I'm trying to play an english patched, 1.1 updated CIA of MHX, but it just boots to a black screen, forcing me to hard reboot.
From what I've learned with experimenting, anything that's not the main song should be kept less than 1 second. Otherwise some won't play or somehow one sound can overtake another.
If some weird shit is happening, chances are that one sound is too long.
Main theme song should be about 50 seconds at most.
>4.5 was 3 years ago
It's stuns me we had so many downgradefags.
So I've got one shot to get this right on a 10.3 3DS or I've got to update it to 10.4 right?
If I do soft brick it though, is there any chance that it'll be completely broken? As in, I won't be able to restore it to normal 3DS functions no matter what?
>So I've got one shot to get this right on a 10.3 3DS or I've got to update it to 10.4 right?
>If I do soft brick it though, is there any chance that it'll be completely broken? As in, I won't be able to restore it to normal 3DS functions no matter what?
No what you described would be a hard brick which never happens. soft brick just means you get a black screen on boot so you have to use recover mode to update to the latest firmware. hard brick just means that shit doesnt work/turn on at all
