    Hi everyone. I am a new member here and also a new to 3dsxl games. I am reading a lot about Homebrew stuffs the past week. So far so good. So I received my N3DSXL the other day and have the firmware. Reading about CFW, I ordered a used Cubic Ninja.

    I followed this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-setting-up-reinand-cfw-from-scratch.394806/.

    I followed OP's post and found the pastebin. download all zip files in that pastebin and followed the tutorial. Now, I dont have a gateway so I followed the tutorial "PROCESS WITHOUT GATEWAY"

    So here is step 1 from tutorial:

    Step 1: Backing up Sysnand

    Copy the contents of folder: "Root of mSD - (Your 3DS' region)" to the root of your mSD

    Start Cubic Ninja & select: Create > QR Code > Scan the QR code from folder: Gateway Cubic Ninja QR > EUR_US / JAP. Once scanned the QR code will boot up the Gateway Menu.

    In Gateway Menu move to Backup Sysnand.

    Once complete press Down + Start to quick shutdown the system.

    Connect the mSD to your computer and make a backup of your NAND.BIN (Incase you ever brick your 3DS, this is what you'll need to bring it back *Along with a hardmod*)

    Now here is the problem, after scanning the QR code, i says "NETWORK ERR!". I am sure internet is working as i can browse the net in the console.

    If anyone can help me. Thanks.

    If internet is confirmed to be working, double check if you get the right QR code, then clean the cubic ninja save by pressing X+Y+R+L and proceed to wipe.

    Thank you cultopi.

    I proceeded to wipe ninja's save. And did the scan again and failed again. When the QR is scanned screen will display "WAIT PLZ" and then "NETWORK ERR!".

    I am trying this guide since its everything in a zip files and I dont want to screw up anything since it is hard to get a 9.2 or lower frimware in my area. If anyone have a guide that worked for them maybe we can update the thread or make a new thread.

    Hi tony_2018. Yes, Ive been reading here in gbatemp. I found out Reinand is the best for simplicity and used that guide. Hope you can give me a hint.

    I am thinking maybe teh site that the QR code is connecting is offline to load the gateway menu. Now since step 1 is to backup sysnand, I dont want to skip that step. I believe the QR in step 1 is not related to ninjahax. Ninjahax is to be done at step 2. This is step 2:

    Step 2: Prepping Sysnand

    Go to http://smealum.net/ninjhax/ on your computer & input your 3DS' exact firmware *Located in System Settings*

    Start Cubic Ninja > Wipe the save > Scan the QR code from Ninjhax. Once scanned the QR code will boot up the Homebrew Menu

    Hold [L] start Pasta CFW with [A] - Select Optons - Enable FirmLaunch [NO] - Boot Pasta "Give me some Pasta"

    Start Cubic Ninja > Create > QR code > Start FBI

    FBI: Install Devmenu.cia to SD, > Once done press [Start] to exit

    *If you get Error Description: Database_does_not_exist > Connect mSD to computer go into Nintendo 3DS > Folder> Here you should see exdata folder, create a folder named "dbs" next to it. Inside dbs create two txt files named (title.db & import.db)

    *Insert the mSD & turn the 3DS back on > System Settings > Data Management > Nintendo 3DS > Software - The system will add the necessary data to the files you created. Now you can go back to FBI & install Devmenu.cia

    Start Pasta cfw > Start Devmenu

    Move to tab Import > Select mset_(region).cia with [A] > Ok when complete > (here you can also install bluecardfix.cia if you have a NDS flashcard that is blocked in 9.x), Hold down power button to turn the system off
