    Should be unless Nintendo took it down, you need an NNID by the way to download it.

    Just create a seperate one, if you haven't linked one to the 3ds. If your 3DS get ban your wii u get ban, so keep them seperate. Atleast if they ban you they gotta go hunting for the rest of your accounts.

    So i has been a while since I been part of this community. Last upgrade i did to my new 3ds was to 11.2.0-35u and now it looks like 11.4.0u is needed to play Ultra Sun. So I been trying to peruse the net for a clean tutorial from this to the other and i cant find one. Can you please help me figure out to upgrade to 11.4.0u from 11.2.0-35u orr if i really need it to be upgraded that far to begin with.

    Any help is good help. Thanks in advance.

    What would be the contents and characteristics of an illegitimate CIA?

    So this excludes all games? If that’s the case, getting a game cia from anywhere is always a legit cia that you can go online with, unless it’s been tampered or hacked?

    Pretty much all games are fine to go online with. Simply none that are early releases.

    So basically close to all game cias are legit cias that won’t get you banned by using online and that early release games are never meant to be used online until official release in hopes of not getting banned?

    CIAs you build yourself from cartridges or download from illegal sources are normally not legit CIAs (but won’t lead to a ban and going online is fine).

    Legit CIA means valid ticket/valid signature. A legit installed CIA continues to work after uninstalling CFW (BAD IDEA!) which patches the signature checks. There are two kinds of legit CIAs:
    • Signed for a single console (titles bought on the Eshop)
    • Signed for all 2/3DS consoles (the preinstalled games @lone_wolf323 mentioned and system titles like the Home Menu itself, the crappy internet browser, Face Raiders, Download Play,…)
    GodMode9 can build legit CIAs from system titles (should be universal) and paid Eshop games (only usable for the console you build them on).
    Normally you should use the option “Build CIA (standard)” when dumping your games and only use the “Build CIA (legit)” for dumping system titles and maybe paid Eshop content (but it remains usable only on this particular console, so standard is still the better option)

    A little warning: Do not play around with system titles, especially if you don’t have a (recent) NAND-backup and an ntrboot flashcart.

    I've not used my 3DS for some time. Now I want to play. There was firmware 11.6 with B9S and Luma3DS.
    I've updated Luma Updater. Next i've updated Luma3DS to 9.1 with it (giving permission to touch CTR-NAND) and FW to 11.9.
    I've deleted some old homebrew and reinstalled fresh CIAs with FBI (Checkpoint, ftpd).
    Did I've missed something or I am geared up?

    Can I install Twilight Menu and play DSiWare in nds format on 3DS? Any other means? I recently find out I can't hack actual DSi to play them.

    Hi,

    I've stripped the screws on the back of my New 3DS. I want to upgrade to the latest hacks, as I haven't touched it in a long while.
    I'm on 11.3.0-36E.

    Is there a way I can upgrade to the latest Luma etc over wireless?
    Or has anyone any tips on how I can get the back off to get at my SD card?

    Thanks

    That’s a bit strange. The end user is supposed to open the back cover; these screws are bigger than the others inside and not as tight. Depending on how badly the screws are stripped you can still get them out with the rubber band trick. There are other methods to get stripped screws out. However, you might “disimprove” your situation when trying harsh methods.

    If you manage to get the screws lose, do not use them anymore. Try carefully removing them from the cover and replace them.

    About the wireless access:
    1. Good method:
    If you already have ftpd (as installed CIA or 3DSX for the Homebrew Launcher) use Filezilla or another ftp client to push files to your micro-SD.

    2. Bad method:
    In case you don’t have ftpd, use the crappy SMBv1 server the official firmware provides to push ftpd. When I say “crappy”, I mean crappy. As far as I know it does not work anymore with recent versions of Windows 10 because SMBv1 has been disabled for security reasons.

    According to the Nintendo site it should work with Win 7/8.1 (any maybe also outdated Windows versions). I would really like to say “use a live Linux system if you only have Win 10”, but this is also not really good. I got it to work – sort of. References: [1], [2] (scroll down to the answer).

    Once you have access to the microSD proceed normally with updating your hacks. With any wireless method you will need patience for uploading large files like game CIAs because the WiFi is slow. But better than nothing if you can't get it opened.

    EDIT:
    If all else fails use fire a virtual machine with Windows 7/8.1 to connect to the smb server.
