    You need a hard mod to get otp. Achieve that before proceeding

    Once you get a hardmod, there's no risk since you can just restore a backup if something goes wrong. But it's still rather difficult to install, and there is no easy way to dump the OTP (meaning you will have to do it manually)
    And it doesn't initialize the screens, so it's not very useful right now. But you could get a hardmod installed in the meantime so you're ready for when it actually becomes useful :)

    https://github.com/delebile/arm9loaderhax the git doesn't really have any code changes since the initial commit and the readme still says screens aren't initialized, so where did you hear that?

    But why do I need a hardmod to make a Nand backup? I already made one with Gateway.

    Are you a tester? :O

    You don't, you need it for other parts of the process.

    You'll need to dump otp on 1.x

    ;-)

    Should also work on 2.x, and afaik rxTools works on 2.x, so presumably other ARM9 payloads loaded the same way should also work.

    Maybe; I was only informed about needing to dg to 1x as part of the process and that emunand blocks otp so it needs to be system nand

    Thx. But I don't have 2.x because new Nintendo 3ds only supports >9.0. So that's why I need a hard mod?

    Thank you. I think that's a bit too difficulty for me. Once again thank you all for the help.

    why do you need a hardmod ? cant it be done on emunand ? or one must use a hardmode to dump the otp key or its hash ?

    It can't be done on emuNAND, because the OTP is locked by the time you start emuNAND and can't be unlocked without a full reboot.

    It CAN be done without a hardmod, it's just really not recommended, because of the brick potential. To get 1.0 or 2.x working on a N3DS, you have to reencrypt the decrypted CTRNAND with keyslot 0x04 and swap out the header from an O3DS dump (https://3dbrew.org/wiki/Flash_Filesystem#NAND_structure)

    question: otp lock happens before sysnand is initiated and is something not bound to it. Ej (otp & otp lock - sysnand boot ) ?
    edit: i think i will stay with emu latest version without bootmii like thing xD

    Can anyone point me to directions to dump otp on a o3ds. I have a hardmod and already know how to downgrade but even after a couple days on Google I can't find what to do after that.
