    Does anyone have a copy of the 11.3 firmware.bin? I installed cakes as my 2nd cfw yesterday and my 11.2 sysnand will boot, but my 11.3 redNAND will not. I believe that 11.2 can boot with NFIRMs that don't match its Homemenu version, right?

    @mid-kid I used the correct N3DS FIRM and CETK on B9S 1.0 N3DS but Cakes 197 refused to boot and gave me this.

    You need the firmkey for it to work.

    Does anyone have cakesfw for b9s 1.2? 197 won't work :(.
    update: tried to build firm using firmtool -b (b9s 1.2) but still doesn't work at all.

    I normally hate to rush, but is there a chance we will one day see a B9S 1.2 build?

    I'm not sure what you people are doing wrong, but it's working on 1.2 for me. Though Luma's chainloader is decryption-intolerant, so, it will crash if your firmware files aren't already. The way around this, as usual, is to use a good chainloader like BootCTR9 or CBM9. Now on the N3DS, decryption of the TWL firmware fails (didn't even try AGB, went ahead and decrypted both on my A9LH unit while I was at it). Also, the 9.0 firmware doesn't decrypt on the N3DS either. 9.6 and higher did seem to decrypt alright, but I took no chances. The N3DS firmware included in the full version of my AIO B9S Pack is all fully decrypted. But it does work (I would not include something that doesn't). So, if you know where to find it, my copy works. I actually came here to inform @mid-kid of this decryption issue, since last I checked, he only had an O3DS.

    EDIT: Just refreshed the nightly site, and 200 is out! So, apparently everyone looking for an update is in luck.

    OMG version 200! I've waited so long to have CakesFW running on my 3DS again! Thank you so much @mid-kid! Thank you! I am seriously so happy to see you are still around and continuing to support CFW!

    Could you please send me your build via PM? Thanks so much.

    CakesFW 200 doesn't work standalone on B9S 1.2
    boot.firm > black screen
    Luma > Cakesfw.firm > arm9 dump error screen

    Not sure why this isn't getting more attention. It's awesome to see this project is still alive.

    Anyone figured out how to get the boot.firm to work? It still runs great with the .dat but just out of interest.

    I think you need a different chainloader than luma's
    Don't quote me on that though, need to test it myself first.

    B9S is his chainloader.
