    11.2.0-35 is fine.
    Be careful and dont install cia that begin with 2 (it's for NEW3ds) and vise versa
    arm11 I don't receive before, but I read somewhere that you need change some options in boot (before console load in sys-emunand). I think it was about boost or something.
    I never imported any seeds and install games from freeshop without it and they plays fine.
    +I never played cursed castilla, Castlevania not my thing, Maybe it's need higher frimwhere?

    Would download it now and check it, then report about it you. Which region atm?
    Hmm... Nope, don't see it there :\

    PS: If you download it through ciaabgel then you would get crash, normal installation of cias and freeshop works fine

    Don't use what you just downloaded. It's grabbing the wrong files because you typed the version in wrong. Type in "11.2.0-35E" to make sure it grabs the right files. And you need to use SysUpdater to install the files. Place them in a folder named "updates" on your card once you have the right ones, then run SysUpdater and choose the update option.

    Wait, there's actually a new Castlevania? I'll have to check that out. Try setting up Luma's region emulation. Details here.

    hej kazuma, i think your included clean sd card batch files erases the script files. or i did something wrong. but after using the batch my scripts were missing and i just had to copy them to the sd card again. what is the cleaning batch supposed to erase anyways`? hope it didnt erase something other important i didnt realize :D

    also another question. i just exported my save file from my original animal crossing card and wanted to install as cia save, im confused again. do i have to set some kind of sav file into the sd card again with the title id of the savemanager? because when i click on cia save and then the game it tells me no archive found.

    and another strange thing, when i try to que download in cia angel it never works. when i press a to start downloading the batch it shows an error. i always have to download file after file. is that a known problem?

    The batch file's only purpose is to delete the old configuration files before installing new versions of the AIO. Everything else is handled by the scripts. You should be fine if you copy the configuration folder and extra options you're using back.

    An original game should work just like a type 2 ROM does. You should just be able to copy it over. Try backing the save up again and make sure you do it in SysNAND. It's possible GW's redirection could have messed the process up if you did it in GW mode.

    I think it is a known issue. I'll check with cearp and see if he has a solution. From what most people have told me, Freeshop is better for batch queues, but CIAngel tends to be more stable, has never crashed on them, etc.

    That's the right number of files. So you should be good to go. And what can I say? I think they may have hung us out to dry this time. But I can't say I didn't get my money's worth out of the device I guess.

    And I checked out a review of the game you mentioned. Another hard as hell indie game (do indie titles define success by the number of people they prevent from beating them or something?). At least this one's somewhat honest about it, unlike Battle Kid and Binding of Isaac, which masquerade as Mega Man and Zelda clones. This mimics Ghosts & Goblins. You can see you've probably got 15 seconds to live immediately ;)

    ok then ill try again later with the save backup. also is it possible to backup the cia save files in a similar manner as gw does, so that if i change a whole system i can just kinda copy them back and use them again? is this the case when i just backup the save folder with the dat files inside, which are created by the savemanager? are those system independant?

    Both JKSM and SDF store the saves in decrypted form. Just copy over either the "JKSV" or "filer" folder (respectively) to the card for the system you want to transfer the saves to. You can even upload them for other people to use. Note that JKSM tends to be the preferred format for sharing, and rightfully so. It's easier to use, and allows multiple saves with names so you remember what they're for. So you're not like, which Cubic Ninja save is this? You can check the name and know, it's Ninjhax 2.8 for an N3DS, for example. But I keep SDF around because it's the "official" dev kit app. Just in case JKSM doesn't work with something (though that hasn't happened yet).

    I put a Binding of Isaac one up on that iso site's save section, for example. It's a hard game to get everything unlocked in. It took me about a month to do even having found every relative offset with Gateway's cheat finder (though some of that time did involve finding said offsets). And sometimes it wasn't finding the offset so much as figuring out what it does. Like the black soul heart offset. I found it quickly, but it took me some time to realize that it was reverse binary mask (if you've got 1 black heart and 2 soul hearts, it's value is 1 -- 100 reversed is 001, if you've got 2 soul hearts and 1 black heart, it's value is 4 -- 001 reversed is 100, if you've got 3 black hearts, it's value is 7). There was even a hidden joke in there -- items that charge over time have to be set to 6E instead of 64 to be full (110% as opposed to 100%).

    ok it worked great. thank you :). one other question. im pretty sure its not possible, but when i backuped all the games and saves with gw back in the day, most saves didnt work because of some restrictions. i dont have some of the games anymore so i cant just rip the old save again with the jksm. its not possible to make use of the old save backups of gw which didnt work with gw after all back then?

    If they're backups from original carts, those only tend to work with said original carts. You could try padding the save to 524,288 bytes with a hex editor and see if it works. Don't hold your breath though.

    hej kazuma,me again :(. i have a bigger sd card now, so could you specify again how to transfer everything? i dont get the nand_minsize.bin and changing of drive letters thing at all...and im a little afraight to break something with the emunand and gw since im now at the latest fw...thanks!

    EDIT: or is it easier, just copying everything over to the new sd, then loading the GW menu (with the card not inserted for security), then formating emunand, then copy over all tickets from sysnand, then booting emunand with reinand, then downgrade system to 11.2?

    You don't have to copy everything over just to format the card. Just copying the configuration over is enough to get booted into GW and use the formatting tool. From there, just copy the card's contents over. You could backup EmuNAND on the old card, and then restore it on the new card (using either the new restore scripts in GM9, or by mounting it to a drive and copying nand_minsize.bin from the I: drive to the E: drive). Though it may actually be faster to just downgrade the new EmuNAND, since it should already have all of your tickets from SysNAND.

    No, when you see the light grey screen, release B, then hold L+select. That should bring up the menu. You should NEVER press the fastboot combo. That's will kill your exploit and put you on retail.

    that worked. could you elaborate on what is happening with these combos?
    also the tickets for emunand are still there even after formatting the new emunand? and sysdowngrade is achieved with reinand, am i correct?

    GW made that the combo for accessing the menu with the last version. It used to just be L before. You could use ReiNAND since it boots EmuNAND by default. Or you could hold L to boot EmuNAND with Luma. Either will work. When GW formats EmuNAND, it clones your SysNAND to it. So, any tickets on SysNAND will get transferred.
