    Since the new way is sorta confusing, and requires some base knowledge on ROM hacking (specifically, content decryption and extraction), I wrote up a guide on how to do this:

    https://github.com/ev1l0rd/ev1l0rd.github.io/wiki/Sun-and-Moon-injection-guide

    If anything is unclear/doesn't work as described, please respond!

    Also, because I know people are gonna skim over it, here is the disclaimer again:

    What does the patch do exactly?

    Thus far?

    It allows for QR injection, removes the scan limit and optionally removes the outlines on the models. Later rental injection will also be possible.

    How does it enable QR injection? How does it remove the scan limit?

    so do we HAVE to have arm9loader? like Im still using rednand and luma (ik so ezpz to add) but just a bit of the lazies+comfort of having a separate nand. already using the modded code.bin for the no outlines, so can I just edit that one for the qr part?

    --edit

    So i went through and followed the process to what I could, got a successful code.bin with no outlines produced and its let me scan a rowlet multiple times, but it seems to have put a green filter over my screen while in qr scanning mode and remapped the scan button from R as displayed to the L key. though I do have L=A on atm.

    ---edit2

    so I did a soft reset after finding my axew because i threw a fast ball at it instead of a normal pokeball (I have a challenge of using only normal pokeballs even for legendary) but even after a soft reset it still works.

    me? what exactly do you want the vid to show? like me starting luma from ctrboot and stuff or what do you think needs to be seen? i just made sure after catching my axew again (it seems to keep same pokemon even after a soft reset) and did 3 more scans of just rowlet. after doing the island scan for a second time, it gave me axew again.

    --edit
    with this i learned you can run from the island scanned pokemon and the scan still continue. gonna test if you can faint it next, you cannot use adrenalin orbs on them

    --edit2
    Fainting stops scan.

    Just a note when I done mine, it dumped from my de-coded CIA "contents.0000.00000000" and "contents.0000.00000001" which I got an error with the 01 and success from 00. Pokemon moon is my game.

    I've seen this being reported in the past. Will rewrite that bit tomorrow to say that you need to use the large file instead of the name listed there.

    EDIT: Yes, for the dumping you need arm9loaderhax because you need to load an arm9 payload for decrypt9 to dump the game. You can use Brahma according to some, but I've no experience using that. Arm9loaderhax is better for all involved anyway due to the other benefits (free space, brick protection, safe sysnand install and more).

    I have the CIA version but I don't have the CIA I used to install PKMN sun.. do I have to dump a new CIA with Decrypt9 or can I use any other CIA??

    EDIT: ok I'm dumping my CIA! so even if you have a cia installed or a eshop install you have to go with the option Digital version right?.. yes?

    EDIT 2: this guy shares the code.bin file for both games :v

    (is there any problem of using those code.bin files?)

    So is this confirmed to work on a N3DS XL with HANS?

    Because I have a N3DS XL and the most recent HANS version, and the correct patched bin file, renamed to the titleid.code, placed in the hans folder; but when I open pokemon sun through HANS and set the code--> sd target to YES, and hit OK to load the game.. it just kicks me back to the HBL menu....

    Not confirmed. I don't know how HANS handles extended RAM games (I know for a fact that it won't work on an o3ds, not sure about new), so you will have to look into that for yourself. It will work for sure if you use Luma's patching feature.

    Yes. Digital version means eshop/cia. Basically it's if you have it installed but don't have the CIA.

    Idiot. He's just fishing for a well deserved takedown for sharing copyrighted files.

    I don't recommend using anyone elses code.bin files. Always dump them yourself.

    If someone would just upload the code.bin or the compiled hack to "that iso site" that would be great. Not even the decrypted CIA is posted.

    Can I ask the reason of this method? Using JK'SM is faster imo.

    I prefer the IPS patching method using Luma nightlies.

    you don't need luma3ds to play randomized pokemon sun and moon or inject qr codes hacked hans 3ds works fine with the games but check your romfs file before playing it by opening up hans 3ds on homebrew
