Hi everyone, I've recently discovered that my brother's 3DSXL is at version 8.1.0-12U. From what I understand, this means I'm in a perfect spot to use exploits such as browserhax. However, I can't seem to actually make browserhax work on said system. I've installed the Homebrew Starter Kit properly on to the SD card, and scanned the QR code / manually typed in the web address on the browser application. No matter what however, the webpage just opens up to a blank white screen, rather than booting up the Homebrew Launcher. My friend is stumped as to why it's not working correctly. What am I doing incorrectly (if anything), and how can I fix this?

Thank you!

This happens if you have opened the browser with internet on since the exploit was semi-fixed. Unfortunately, you will need to find a new homebrew method. I recommend getting OOT and Powersaves.

Wasn't the exploit only semi-fixed on 9.9 and above? I'm still able to use browserhax on my 9.2 sysnand - in fact, I used it to install Menuhax and autoboot into emunand. It's not the most reliable but it works.

EDIT: Just tried it, can confirm Sliderhax still works on 9.2 sysnand.

I thought it was blocked on all versions. @Woosh Try clearing your cookies and exit out of the tab with the browserhax page. Then, turn off your internet and type in the page. Go out of the browser, turn on internet, go back in. It should work.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Wait, which starter pack are you using? Also, I found this on the Browserhax page: This may or may not work on firmwares below 9.0. If you're below 9.0 please don't ask for help.
And this too: DO NOT put the payload on your SD. It will auto download that.

Not to mention the fact that this is IMPOSSIBLE to run on < 9.0 because Ninjhax 2.x doesn't support it. And you can't use Ninjhax 1.x because Browserhax isn't a kernel exploit.

Long story short: It won't work.

This is why Google exists.

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
