If the thing with iderped.firm does not work (try different SDs only containing a valid firm file renamed according to this) all that remains is ntrboot. Getting a cheap flashcart is a lot cheaper than getting another console.


Good luck!

"The Fearless Testing Sina" tried it out: I installed this "scriptrunner mode" GodMode9 fork into my testing console FIRM0
I can confirm it loads SafeB9SInstaller renamed to iderped.firm for me.

Are you completely sure you installed it in FIRM0 and not only replaced boot.firm? Did you get the warning screen telling you that installing unsupported FIRM is not a really good idea?

That does not really answer the question.
Did you get the warning and type the random combination or not?

If you installed it to FIRM0 it should load iderped.firm from SD (Try different FAT32 formatted SDs if possible).
If you did not install it, replace boot.firm with latest Luma3DS.

I might be missing something, but how is cartinstall going to load iderped.firm?

Hardcoded safety measurement.

Code:
if (IS_SIGHAX && (entrypoint == ENTRY_NANDBOOT))
        BootFirmHandler("0:/iderped.firm", false, false);

In the file
CartInstall-master/arm9/source/godmode.c

And confirmed working from my end.

Is CartInstall based on GM9? That isn't obvious.
I guess you guys are more familiar with this than I am :P

Familiar with that? No. First time I saw CartInstall was this thread.

I really wanted to say nothing more in this thread since everything I can think of has been already said. But this leaves me no choice:
The only similarity is that they both mount the SD Card as a drive accessed by "0:".
Hmmm. Must be some strange coincidence with the source file naming then.
https://github.com/aspargas2/CartInstall/blob/master/arm9/source/godmode.c


Let's have a look at the README.md then…
github.com/aspargas2/CartInstall said:
CartInstall

An uncreatively named GodMode9 fork for installing 3DS cartridge games to the SD
General Info

As stated above, this is merely a fork of GodMode9.[…]

Ahhh. Okay.

Oh. I'm not familiar with this, I meant similarities that were mentioned in this thread.
