Hello,

I'm currently using this guide to get cfw on my old 2DS on 3DS.guide using an "All Versions" method

I've been successful up until the "Finalizing Setup" part of the guide.

When I get to section 2 regarding updating the system, it just says that I already have the latest update (don't know if that matters but I wanted to include that just in case it does).

Section 3 Launching FBI is where I'm currently stuck, here are the steps:

  1. Launch the Download Play application
  2. Press (L) + (Down) + (Select) at the same time to open the Rosalina menu
  3. Select “Miscellaneous options”
  4. Select “Switch the hb. title to the current app.”
  5. Press (B) to continue
  6. Press (B) to return to the Rosalina main menu
  7. Press (B) to exit the Rosalina menu
  8. Press (Home), then close Download Play
  9. Launch the Download Play application
  10. Your device should load the Homebrew Launcher
  11. Launch FBI from the list of homebrew
After doing all those steps, when I go to launch the download play app, the screen goes black for a second or 2, then I'm just brought back to the home screen again. Homebrew Launcher will not load, I have no idea what to do or how to fix it. I'm currently on Luma3DS v9.0 if that helps. If any other info is needed then please just let me know. Thank you for your time!

UPDATE: So out of curiosity I tried with Luma3DS version 8.1 and the same thing happened. Still can't load the Homebrew Launcher.

    The way a software operates the USB is independent of the drivers you are using for USB.

    We do understand, I work in IT, and I'm pretty sure M4x1mumReZ does as well.

    @Jonnathann_2022, I don't even understand a single word from this. A typical USB device communicates via drivers.

    @Shape, I don't work for an IT job, still a full-time college student. I am though knowledgeable about computers, I can tell you that.

    If it was flash memory, yes, but we are saying that there is software that is recorded via the OS on the cartridge that makes the OS recognize this cartridge, understand? Do the following, take a new machine of yours with a VM and try to do this test to get the EFA working. I would greatly appreciate it.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    The operating system detects the type of device via the hardware ID embedded into the microcontroller of the device.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    He's trying to explain that the EFA linker program "burns" to flash ROM instead of communicating with a flash drive. Which, again, has very little to do with the USB drivers.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    @Shape, I see. Didn't know what he meant by that though.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    And also apparently he thinks that the cartridge is not connecting properly because of the Windows USB driver. Either his cartridge is damaged or he has one of the knock-offs that required an extra device driver for the flash cartridge itself

  • Jonnathann_2022 @ Jonnathann_2022:
    It doesn't communicate with flash, it doesn't have any kind of flash memory. There is a type of memory that simulates the original memory of the cartridge, since it has more addresses for more than one game.

    @Jonnathann_2022,
    Try cleaning the contacts of the cart with isopropyl alcohol then try re-connecting the cart to the reader and see if it registers.

  • Jonnathann_2022 @ Jonnathann_2022:
    You record the games in addresses
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    If not, then the cartridge must be faulty.

    ROM means read-only memory which is memory that cannot be re-written.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Well it's flash *something*.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I think what you mean is EEPROM (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory).
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Yes that's what I meant

  • Shape @ Shape:
    I wanted to say EEPROM but I was pretty sure my cart only used EEPROM to manage savefiles. It's a knockoff lol
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    EPROM on the other hand is different, as it uses strong UV radiation to erase the chip.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Also it uses EMF :rofl2:
