    Does anyone have a video of someone with working arm9 hack in place? I probably won't be getting into it until it becomes more mainstream,but I am very curious to see what arm9 real CFW looks like. I would greatly appreciate if someone could link a video of the hack installed.

    Yep it's an actual thing that only work with reinand so far, but the stenuous work to downgrade and then reupgrade (with the high chance of bricking) isn't worth it just yet in my opinion.

    If you had a hard-mod, there really wouldn't be any risk. You could always restore your NAND. As long as you don't drop your 3DS down this stairs. That might create problems. ;)

    Thanks for linking the video,I think I will be sticking to menuhax for now until this has a proper tutorial atleast.

    The hardmod just makes the 3ds look a little bit ugly unless someone really experienced does it to make it look neat.

    I installed a9l on my o3DS XL without a functional nand mod. :P



    Because I decided it was worth the risk. You need to downgrade to 2.1 or below to dump OTP. (2.x recommended since you can use brower hax to get OTP without needing Cubic Ninja). I downgraded emunand first (so that if it crashes/errors out, I don't end up with a frankenfirm/brick) and after seeing that it downgraded without error, I flashed that to sysnand and it booted up just fine. (just delete home menu extdata from SD card or boot without SD Card inserted afterwords. Otherwise it will look like it bricked and give you a scare. :P )

    Once I had OTP I used a special version of Decrypt9 that works from 2.x browserhax to restore 9.2 sysnand. I compiled arm9loaderhax with the resulting OTP and installed it. :D

    All that without a nand mod. It's a little more risky but the downgrading emunand then transfer to sysnand method would work for n3DS too. Only you swap encryption type on ctr nand partition of emunand before flashing emunand to sysnand. I imagine derypt9 nand restore of sysnand would work the same way on n3DS.

    Whomever made that video forgot one thing (which is a super cool thing too, if my suspicions are correct...) launching devmenu or something immediately after exiting the system settings!
    @Apache Thunder that theme... link plz? :bow:

    My biggest problem with this... I use a Gateway and I am in love with their cheat engine. I don't think you can cold boot into Reinand like that and still be able to use a Gateway. I'm wondering both if it's possible for the GW team to code something up to work, and if they can... would they even bother?

    I'm cold booting into a sigpatched 9.0 FIRM right now. It would still work with gateway if I had one. :P

    I guess if someone wrote a payload, but what would you want to coldboot, Gateway or something?

    That nand mod looks clean as fuck did you do it yourself? I know its not functional but it looks real good.

    Ah. I imagine we'll see some boot manager payloads in a few days/weeks, once they figure out how to turn the screens on (yes, that is a thing right now, they don't quite know how to turn them on for graphics before loading FIRM yet).

    That nand mod was done by hundshamer. You'll find his thread for nandmod services in the selling section of the trade forum. ;)

    You should write the tutorial for this once it gets more "mainstream."

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    I have a question. I want to install arm9loaderhax, but can I still boot into sysnand if I want to?
