    Hey guys, I just got my N3DS Super Mario 3D Land 10.7.0-33. First thing first, I hop on the awesome Plailect tutorial on al9h I used for my O3DS and then... I need an entrypoint since the browserhax exploit doesn't work on this version. Damn.

    So, I have a full al9h equipped O3DS last version, and I don't mind using the DSiWare exploit... But if my N3DS is below 11.0, I still need an entrypoint for ctr-httpwn. Should I update my N3DS to the last version and then use the DSiWare exploit without an entry point with steelhax, or should I wait my ass a few days and buy one of the more common entrypoint?

    Also I got a TN display... fml <o3o>

    UPDATE: So with the great help of @nechigawara, I'm going for the browserhax exploit (with some tweaks) this evening, I'll keep you guys updated and make a guide out of it if everything turns out right. I also bought a copy of Zelda: OOT online just to be sure. A big shout out to everyone here, you guys were a great help.

    UPDATE 2: Sorry guys! I had no luck at all with browserhax. I don't think it's possible. I've tried a lot of things. I went with OOTHAX and everything looks great, I've got myself a fully hacked N3DS!

    Wait and save yourself the headache of the DSiWare downgrade. Buy OoT off of Amazon or something I'd say. Or, and this sounds shady I guess, find a used copy of a game that has a secondary exploit at GameStop, load the exploit, downgrade, then take advantage of their return policy for a full refund. I think it is 7 days full refund for used games.

    Edit: Make sure you wipe the exploited game's save of course so the next buyer can play without wondering what is wrong with their game.

    I can help. I'm in Canada and I can send you an extra copy of my OoTHax with the 10.7 entrypoint put into it.

    However, I would like it back.

    Honestly, I don't find the DSiWare that hard to do. It's just that updating to the latest firmware just for skipping entry points leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I just want to be sure that it is feasible so I'm not fucked up after updating. I am not a patient man... And I like a challenge. I guess if I fuck it up I can always return my N3DS to Amazon. I think I'm gonna do it... Ughh it's so hard for me to wait another day. I really don't know what to do. Anyone with actual experience with the DSiWare exploit?

    Thanks man, I really appreciate it, but I think I'll pass. I'll find another way. I can't fucking wait. Sometime I hate myself.

    you have another system with custom firmware? use a secondary entrypoint! don't do the complicated DSiware downgrade if you can avoid it, seriously.

    go to a store and buy one of these, whichever is cheaper.
    • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
    • Paper Mario: Sticker Star
    • Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
    • Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
    • Cubic Ninja
    • Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!

    That's what I thought. Thanks buddy. I guess I'll listen to you all and just wait until I get one of those. It's just a shame. I actually bought Pokemon ORAS, OOT and Smash Bros on the eshop on my O3DS. Now I need one of the cardrige

    since they are secondary games, you can get them much cheaper than the primary ones (Cubic Ninja, Freakyforms Deluxe), for probably just a few $ more than Fieldrunners/Legends of Exidia (or maybe even cheaper).

    Alright, that seems really interesting. I know my way around a router too, working in IT. I'll try that tonight and if it works, I'm gonna make a guide for everyone to enjoy. Just saying that my N3DS is on 10.7.0-33 so I don't know how this will go. I wonder if I could actually go directly to the 9.2.0 downgrade without installing menuhax. I'll keep you guys updated, and @nechigawara, thanks a lot. Maybe I won't actually have to wait so long.

    I thought OOT with powersaves was acting as primary exploit, like cubic ninja and freakyforms deluxe :-/
    edit: Does the nintendo selects OOT work as the original cartridge?
    thanks

    Yeah, but tonight I'll try to browserhax since I didn't opened the browser yet (so no nag) while blocking everything but yls8.mtheall.com for the downgrade. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for the support buddy.

    Well, I am in a similar situation, however I have an o3DS that already has A9LH.

    I setup OOT for 10.7 but never setup menuhax on my Mario N3DS, figuring I could just redo OOT for 9.2.

    Naturally, it partial downgraded and now OOT for 10.7 or 9.2 isn't working. I can't use the browser because of the update nag, so browserhax is out. How the hell do I get to the Homebrew Launcher to perform the downgrade again?

    Edit: Nevermind! OOT worked this time. I'll continue on with my downgrade/A9LH procedure.

    I faced similar problem while doing mine too. But mine partial downgraded work with 9.2 OOT3D so I'm safe too.
    Another problem I found is after restored to 9.2, it won't update to 11.1 on the first run. But work find on 2nd try.

    You will need to find another entrypoint then buddy I find it weird that your browser isn't downgraded since the last version of sysDowngrader downgrade it first in case of a partial downgrade

    EDIT: Nice! Good luck.

    I found it weird too, but it showed 9.2.0-20U in Settings and the browser worked. Could it be that it finished enough to actually allow the browser to work? It was mostly finished downgrading before I saw the Nintendo error screen forcing me to reboot.
