Important:- - This is meant to be used only on EMUNAND. Don't try this on sysnand and you will or might brick! - Before starting any of this make sure to make backup of your emunand. You were warned! - And to clarify this isn't actually frakenfirmware. You are just "selectively updating" 3ds via official updates and by not installing 2-3 titles that are not compatible with Gateway you can boot the firmware and even go online. You can actually just do a system update from setting in case you want to update your firmware fully. -Luma 8.0 users check this for now https://gbatemp.net/threads/luma-8-0-wont-load-my-emunand.473263/#post-7373368 -Read FAQ for other questions. Most of us, including me were stuck on 11.2 emunand for Gateway cheats. In return we couldn't play online as system wont go online unless updated, like you all have seen that error on friend list that asks you to update. Anyways here is the method to almost completely update to 11.4 with online access and it is "working as of now". I own a US N3DS and this tut makes use of system titles compatible with this model only. While many titles might be similar others might not be so just find the alternate titles for your region/model. Again if you don't do this you may brick!

These were the titles that were updated from 11.2-11.4 in case of US N3DS. 0004001000021900,USA,v23552,11.3.0-36 0004003000008F02,USA,v27648,11.3.0-36 000400300000CE02,USA,v18432,11.3.0-36 0004001000021500,USA,v4096,11.4.0-37 000400300000CC02,USA,v3072,11.4.0-37 000400DB00017302,USA,v11328,11.4.0-37 0004013000002902,USA,v14336,11.4.0-37 0004013000003202,USA,v15360,11.4.0-37 0004013000008002,USA,v22528,11.4.0-37 0004003020009402,USA,v9232,11.4.0-37 000400DB20016302,USA,v592,11.4.0-37 EUR O3DS/N3DS title list https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...with-online-access.472624/page-3#post-7365492 Don't download/install below three as these will brick emunand.

However in any rare case you are getting lag on wifi manger do complete steps. Steps- 1- Backup your emunand. 2- Download the titles marked with green with 3DNUS or any similar piece of software. These are the latest titles anyways. 3- Use sysupdater and put all the green marked titles in updates folder. Update and restart. 4 You need just one more title 0004013000002D02, but you wont be installing the latest version as mentioned above. For this first download v9216(from 8.0.0 update) with 3dsnus mark it as old and v10240(from 9.0.0) update and mark this as new. 5-Spoof the v10240 version with hxd to v11264 which is the current one. How to spoof the cia version? Manual Way/Offline: (This is from my old thread tut) In this case I am taking example of 0004001000021000.cia[US]. http://yls8.mtheall.com/ninupdates/titlelist.php?sys=ctr&wiki=1 shows that we have v8203 from 9.0 update and we need to spoof it to atleast v9221(or more if you wish) which was in 9.6 update. Open hxd and look for offset 00002F90 and then 0C-0D have your version no in hexadecimal. convert it decimal with this. In our case it is 20 0B with means 8203 in decimal and now again use decimal to hex to convert v9221 to hex which is 24 05 in hex. Now just overwrite 20 0B with 24 05 and save. This completes the spoofing of version. Alternate Way- If the title can be downloaded via 3dnus you can use the option "change version number to" before downloading that title and it will automatically spoof the version no to what you want to set. 6- Then open FBI and install the title 0004013000002D02 marked as old(v9216). Reboot and then install the new marked one(which should be now spoofed to show as v11264). 7-Restart and check Friend List, you should have online access unless you were ninty banned xD. 8- Donot attempt to system update from settings because it will install the remaining 2 non-compatible titles and you will be left with a bricked emunand. After gateway supports 11.2+ firmware you can update the system. FAQ Q:What does 0004013000002D02 do? Why are we using a super old version of it, not even the version from 11.2? A:It wont allow you to directly install the spoofed version of 11.2. So you first downgrade it with old one and in the same run just install the spoofed 11.2 one. Q:What do I use to download update files? A: https://gbatemp.net/threads/3dnus.376488/. Use 1.9 for n3ds and 1.8 for o3ds. There is a new updated version too but I used this. Q:Why don't we spoof the other 2 titles too? A: Because I tried that many times and gateway always bricks the emunand no matter. Plus I found you actually don't need to spoof them as online still worked. Q: Ughh.. I dont know which files I need to download for my region/model? A: From the links given, gather the title list that need updating, and just remove the 3 titles you shouldn't install as stated, they are same for all. Rest follow the guide. Q:Will sysupdater brick me on gateway doing this. I read a warning? A: Only if you don't follow this guide exactly . This is what backups are for and make sure to create one so you can always restart. This has to be done on GATEWAY-EMUNAND mode only! If you are paranoid install the titles via FBI and you can achieve the same results. Q: Will this Game/DLC work now that we have 11.4 emunand set up? A: The emunand is good to go, but gateway might/will block certain dlc like FE: shadow's one. They install just fine in cfw mode on the same emunand, Gateway needs to fix their launcher!
