    When you are in a 3DS firmware without the web browser and you update from a game cart the web browser will not be present. So, how to solve it ?

    I tested it in a 7.1.0 firmware without the web browser and it was perfectly working thanks to Nintendo very good firmware update function (it did not brick my console even if I removed the battery almost 15-20 times !!!).

    This method can potentially brick your console because you are going to remove the battery while the system is updating !!!

    1 - do an online system update and look VERY CAREFULLY to the progression bar; probably each step forward in this progression bar is something installed so, again, LOOK CAREFULLY at the progress bar and remove the battery at each progression step/notch you see (in my experience I waited each 3-4 progression "notch" before removing the battery to save some time but my system was updating from 7.1.0 to 9.6 [I suppose] so it was downloading quite a lot of stuff);
    2 - after each battery removal restart your 3DS (hoping it will reboot again!);
    3 - if the menu with the web browser got updated the console power-on will be a little more longer and you will see a message saying that the sytem menu is booting and to not turn off the console !
    4 - when the menu appears you will have your functional browser without the system update (I am still at 7.1.0) !!!


    EDIT:
    the title should be changed to "above 4.5", the forum removed the > character I used.

    Well this isn't what I had in mind when I told you to get the browser. :) I think there is a safer method but if it worked for you, great!

    This is just asking for a brick. It'd be much safer to get Cubic Ninja and use FBI to install a browser CIA downloaded from 3DNUS or UpdateCDN.

    Edit: On second thought, I guess not, since there's no version of Ninjhax yet that works without a browser. You have me there.

    The only IMPORTANT thing it is that I cannot launch the exploit; "impossible to load page" at http://go.gateway-3ds.com and "failed to load part of the page" at http://go.scmods.com

    Any help about that ? Is the latest web browser patched for the exploit ? If so my "method" is unuseful...

    This method not useful because the current browser is patched. It was an option through 9.5.0-22.

    I have no fucking idea.
    This thread should be locked, its a pointless method that results in a partially updates system thats useless for exploits.
    For 4.x users, just use MSET.

    It's better you not update. Ninjhax can use memchunkhax to work without a browser. Gateway if they ever decide to release a ***king update for 9.6 support on old 3DS might also add old 3DS support to their Cubic Ninja exploit which does not require the browser. (They already have Cubic Ninja support for n3DS) Once you can get into Gateway mode, you can uninstall the browser using DevMenu and install an older version. (preferrably one from 7.x as that was the latest one available for 7.x all the way to 9.2 the last exploitable firmware.

    Trying to partially update could have only worked back before the browser was updated in 9.5.0-23 that patched the browser crash entrypoint so doing this now will only net you a browser you can't exploit anyway.

    Unfortunately I agree with you :(
    Anyway it just deserved a try.
