    Did you boot into rxMode before trying to open FBI? FBI does not have valid signatures so you'll have to be in a sig patched mode to open it.

    when you unlinked nands your system created a folder under 3ds so you must again set up import.db as well as title.db files and let the data management app in the system settings app do its thing
    edit sorry i did not read fully you said you did that

    2nd edit wait no you did not

    I had this problem this week! I'll follow this topic to learn what I should've done.

    If you boot into rxMode don't you go to the emuNAND?

    I understood that I had to install FBI on sysnand to use the sysupdater on devmode.

    depending on the rxtools release you are using you hold either "L" or "R" when booting rxtools then the menu opens and gives you a choice of sysnand or emunand among other things booting sysnand in this way is known as in rxmode sysnand as opposed to booting normal firmware sysnand by simply powering on the console

    You can choose to boot rxMode sysnand.
    But don't do that. Go to advanced settings and boot devmode.

    yes thank you
    i'm trying that right now and i was pretty successfully all the way to almost lunching my rxtools
    i get a purple screen with:
    -------------------------------------------------
    Err:Couldn't load arm9 payload
    Press any key to continue
    ------------------------------------------------

    i'm thinking of following this -
    but since i'm already got to boot almost all the way
    i'm thinking of replacing the ff:
    boot.3dsx
    rxTools folder from this - rxTools_10-02-15_19-07.9f48bb8
    firmware.bin from the [MEGA] [CIA/BIN] MSET 4.X & 6.X backups, Browser backups, Update packs (All Regions)

    will this work?

    just a recap - finally got it working
    download - rxTools_2015-12-05_08.48-a08cfdd
    >cdn_firm.py -to create the firm folder and copied in rxTools folder found in the same folder (rxTools_2015-12-05_08.48-a08cfdd\release\rxTools\firm)

    download - rxTools_10-02-15_19-07.9f48bb8
    >cdn_firm.py -to create firmware.bin and copied in to rxTools found in the first download above (rxTools_2015-12-05_08.48-a08cfdd\release\rxTools\sys)

    Delete the ff in the sd card: see "Removed from SD.jpg"

    Now i copied the rxTools from "rxTools_2015-12-05_08.48-a08cfdd" folder - see New SD card.jpg

    Hope this help

    I didn't notice it when I had the 3DS working. Where did I had to go to change it?

    [​IMG]

    In the image above you can see the DevMode option. I clicked it and I was able to use the sysupdater on what I think that was the sysnand.

    Not sure why, but I bricked that 3DS :P

    Is there any way to know for sure that you are on Dev Mode? I mean, the FBI and sysupdater programs run normally, I thought everything was OK.

    If it bricked the 3DS, are you 100% sure you had the right update pack for your 3DS?
    There are different update packs for N3DS and O3DS, so make sure you didn't accidentally get one for N3DS to use on O3DS or something.

    Also if something went wrong while moving the update files to your SD card and they corrupted somehow, this could also cause a brick.

    The only way to know you are in DevMode is to trust that you selected the DevMode option on the menu.

    I don't really have to know right now :( I'm not on that computer anymore, so I guess I'll never know.

    I truly hope I didn't brick it because I was stupid enough to download the wrong update pack.

    Next time (the other 3DS I have here is on 10.1) I'll make sure to also check the files on the SD card.

    Thanks for your help.
