    Hello all,

    Tgames over at the Wii U Hacking & Homebrew forum made this tutorial for the Wii U.
    I basically just collected addresses to block for the 3DS.

    It also seems to also block the "install downloaded update" nagging for me, when the proxy is turned on. If it is turned off, it starts nagging me about it again.

    I think it stops nagging because it can connect to the internet to check for a update, but gets a error in return and tries again. As soon as it cannot get any response, it is going to assume it is offline, and install the downloaded update instead.

    This is the modified tutorial made by Tgames.

    The solution :

    - Block onlines updates

    - Only need a PC on Windows that all ! (No router to configure).

    - Should be capable of playing online.

    - Keep the 3DS on your current FW.

    Requirements :

    - The same Network connection on PC and 3DS (just don't have the 3DS connected to the internet, to play it safe pull the internet from your WiFi and then set up the proxy as it fails to connect but save your access point info, which you then can edit. Or a update could be downloaded!)

    - Need a PC always on to keep access to internet and blocking for the 3DS (Without no there internet access on the device connected to the proxy).

    - Download and install CCProxy v8.0 (http://www.youngzsoft.net/ccproxy/proxy-server-download.htm)

    CCProxy Setup

    [​IMG]

    Click on "Options"

    [​IMG]

    Fill it like the picture and click on "Avancé".

    Choose "Networks" tab.

    Uncheck "Refuser Utilisateurs Externes".

    [​IMG]

    Click on "Accepter" and again on "Accepter".

    You come back here :

    [​IMG]

    Click on "Account"

    [​IMG]

    Click on "Fitre web"

    [​IMG]

    Fill it like the picture. Replace WiiU with 3DS if you like.

    It's means that

    New list. Removed two addresses, which blocked online play on the 3DS.

    Code:
    *.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.c.app.nintendowifi.net;*.e.akamai.net;nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;cp3s-auth.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;ecs.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;cp3s.cdn.nintendowifi.net;cas.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;eou.cdn.nintendowifi.net;pls.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;npul.c.app.nintendowifi.net;ecs.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;a248.e.akamai.net;nppl.c.app.nintendowifi.net;conntest.nintendowifi.net;*.conntest.nintendowifi.net
    Or if you like to block both the Wii U and 3DS:

    Code:
    *.cdn.shop.wii.com;*.cdn.wup.shop.nintendo.net;*.wup.shop.nintendo.net;*.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com;*.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com;96.17.161.145;184.50.229.158;184.50.229.137;nintendo.net;nintendowifi.net;nintendo.com;www.nintendo.com;nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;nus.cdn.shop.wii.com;nus.cdn.wup.shop.nintendo.net;nus.wup.shop.nintendo.net;*.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;184.51.206.42;184.51.206.26;184.50.229.158;184.50.229.137;174.35.56.236;174.35.56.235;174.35.56.233;174.35.56.232;174.35.56.232;174.35.56.230;174.35.56.229;174.35.56.218;174.35.56.208;174.35.56.216;174.35.56.201;174.35.56.197;174.35.56.186;174.35.56.182;174.35.56.181;174.35.56.180;174.35.56.172;174.35.56.170;174.35.56.154;174.35.56.153;174.35.56.152;174.35.56.151;174.35.56.150;174.35.56.149;174.35.56.144;174.35.56.99;174.35.56.93;174.35.56.82;174.35.56.81;174.35.56.24;174.35.56.0;96.17.161.145;23.210.5.146;23.210.5.129;23.210.5.123;23.210.5.104;23.210.5.96;23.210.5.90;23.210.5.25;23.210.5.9;23.65.181.75;23.62.236.24;23.62.236.0;23.62.97.82;23.62.97.80;23.62.97.16;23.62.97.9;184.50.229.137;184.50.229.158;96.17.161.145;23.65.181.75;a184-50-229-158.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com;a96-17-161-145.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com;a23-65-181-75.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com;2.228.46.114;2.228.46.120;*.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;*.c.app.nintendowifi.net;*.e.akamai.net;nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;cp3s-auth.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;ecs.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;cp3s.cdn.nintendowifi.net;cas.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;eou.cdn.nintendowifi.net;pls.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;npul.c.app.nintendowifi.net;ecs.c.shop.nintendowifi.net;a248.e.akamai.net;nppl.c.app.nintendowifi.net;tagaya.wup.shop.nintendo.net;nppl.app.nintendo.net;account.nintendo.net;192.195.204.136;pushmore.wup.shop.nintendo.net;conntest.nintendowifi.net;*.conntest.nintendowifi.net
    The removed adresses:
    Code:
    npdl.cdn.nintendowifi.net;*.cdn.nintendowifi.net
    must to fill in the first box.

    Click on "Enregistrer" then "Accepter".

    You come back here :

    [​IMG]

    Click on "Nouveau"

    [​IMG]

    Replace WiiUConsole with 3DSConsole if you like.

    Fill it like the picture and fill the MAC adress with the one of the Wii U (get it in Internet Settings of the 3DS). For example : 3rejh111d004 (no separators !)

    Once in the Internet Settings:

    [​IMG]

    Go to "Other Information".

    [​IMG]

    Select "Confirm Mac Address".

    [​IMG]

    Your MAC address should be on the bottom screen, now fill in the input box.
    Click on "Enregistrer" then "Accepter" and then "Accepter".

    Now the PC side is done.
    Next step is to configure the 3DS

    3DS Setup

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fill in your proxy server (your PC) it's local IP and the 808 port.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Just follow the steps according to the images.
    Now your 3DS is protected against auto-updates and partly the nagging... :yaysp:

    Again, credits Tgames for the basic tutorial and screenshots of CCproxy. :)

    Maybe a strange question, but what's the point of this? What's the advantage of doing all this instead of just not setting up an internet connection at all?

    Well, it's another layer of protection.
    Not to mention you can still use other online functions.

    Like I said, this also prevents the "Install downloaded update" nag we have. :) (As long as the proxy is turned on though..)

    And it prevents you from accidentally updating. Or downloading an update.

    Edit:
    And indeed, use the Browser functionality.

    I've got a method from a friend that can remove the update completely after it has been downloaded. Does not require you to do a factory reset and you do not lost any files or settings. There are some prereqs though.

    Hm... I see. And that's all? It's nice to have, I guess, but resetting the console might seem more worth it. I mean, having a computer on the whole time... that seems like a big requirement for this.
    Anyway, I'm not trying to crash your party with negativity ^^; I'll leave.

    As for that second point (which was apparently edited in because it wasn't in your original post), not setting up an internet connection at all will already fix that.

    Cool, care to share? I am quite annoyed by this. :P (And scared, haha)

    Nurio,
    I understand, but you can set up a Raspberry Pi to do the same.. hah

    ok cool, this will be nice so i don't see the update bit in 4.5, but is there a way to still block the update yet allow access to eshop? (useful for when we have access again)
    or have you not looked into it that much?
    i would personally put this in my router as it is far more useful than having to have to have a computer on running a proxy each time i want to go online :)

    Very detailed guide, thanks. I've played a bit online previously on a legit 3DS system and have to say I won't miss it not to go online, but if I'd ever I'll be sure to look back here.

    Sounds interesting. You should ask your friend for a guide to share it with us :-)

    I did. He shared it with me but told me not to share it on gbatemp. Apparently he has had a horrible experience on gbatemp with mods abusing their power going all ban-hammer-trigger happy. He doesn't want to contribute to gbatemp anymore because of this.

    Sorry fellas. All I can do at this point of time is to say is that it is a much simpler solution since you can go online anywhere and simple perform this procedure when you're home should your 3ds have downloaded an update and the dreaded update nag appears. I tried it on my 3ds xl and it works.

    Just backup your emunand with emunand tool. Problem solved.

    You will lose whatever changes you have made since then such as any streepasses that you may have gotten.

    Kinda sorta. That would require to have a hardware mod; not something everyone wants to or can have.
    EDIT: I mean, to restore your realNAND.

    Emunand tool backs up and writes to your sd card. No hardware mod required.

    Oh, it didn't know that. Homepass gave me so many passes that I didn't even notice I was losing a few.

    i dont understand why people bother with the "i can do (insert anything imaginable here), but i won't/can't tell anyone how"
    personally i don't care either way a update nag is hardly something to be scared of but its just silly to even say it in the first place it just comes across like when kids say "i can hack a 3ds with a SD card but my dad said i cant tell anyone how"......999/1000 its just bs attention seeking

    Not really. If you know it exists, you can work towards it.

    Say what you will about how valid it is. It's a simple solution though. My friend says he will only release the method himself once his account is unbanned and a public apology issued for the blatant misuse of power by the mod in question.

    Unfortunately, I personally do not see this happening. It's not attention seeking, it works and he is willing to share so long as the conditions are met. It's a simple condition which he deserves. He just doesn't want to contribute to GBAtemp until this grievance is resolved. He's my friend so I've got little say in this matter.

    Also, your argument is invalid. I seem to recall some devs showing off lots of stuff and saying what they can do but they did not tell anyone how. Fancy that.

    i don't see it happening myself either, especially given there is no mention on who this person is, what exactly they did, and if I'm honest, by the sounds of it a childish attitude that is probably what got him banned in the first place

    whenever i have seen people banned in the past it takes quite a few warning before it gets to a ban, unless the person in question was just rude/offensive to people or spamming the forum

    Simple. There was no warning given at all. He was not rude/offensive. He did not spam. He got his posts removed for false reasons by Moderator X, he then contacted Moderator Y to seek clarification. He reported some other posts that was basically identical to his removed posts which should be removed due to the same false reasons. He contacted Moderator Y again and bam! He got banned. Sounds to me its a "Question me and you get banned". I was told not to name names here because apparently Moderator X doesn't take too kindly to being called out. The involved parties will be well aware of who is being referred to in this post.

    Frankly, I only signed up to GBAtemp to see what the fuss is about after my friend complained to me about being treated unjustly and the majority lack of quality posts around here. He's right you know, I've seen countless of "How do I ....." threads that can be answered in the stickies or via a search. I only made the post about a method to delete downloaded update just to prompt people towards the correct direction.
