data error.jpg godmod9 version.jpg luma version.jpg


Hi everyone !

Last night i was dumping game cartridge with GodMode9 into CIA files so i can play them when i want and without the cartridge.
To do this i followed the tutorial on 3ds.hacks.guide/godmode9-usage
Everything was fine until i dumped pokemon ultra sun and install the cia file !

Since then, when i wan't to play the game (cia) or go to parameter / data management / nintendo 3ds and software the 3ds crash with the Arm9 error - Data Abort !

I don't know why this is happening, so if anybody can help me correct this or maybe just unistall the pokemon ultra sun cia it would be fine i guess ^^

  • HELP ME.

Since your o3DSXL is able to boot to HOME Menu, yours is probably not a 3DS firmware softbrick. Don't consider CTRTransfer at this moment.

Check if your SD card is fake, faulty, or dying.
  1. Copy everything off the SD card to a computer.
  2. Quadruple reformat.
  3. Full Write + Verify the empty card in H2testw. Do not skip.

Thanks for the reply, i read the thread "HELP ME" but i didn't find anything that looks like the same situation as me. But maybe i'm just blind lol

I bought my SD card like almost a week ago now, and everything was fine with it, so i'm copying everything on my computer and will start the quadrule reformat and do the full write.

I will update soon as it's done !

The similarity is that sergej also has a white o3DSXL model. Of the many possible luma errors, ARM9 errors are not as common compared to ARM11 errors but are often more serious. A typical cause for an ARM9 error is that the 3DS firmware is softbricked due to user negligence like deleting console unique nand file(s). Even more rare is seeing a 3DS function or boot to HOME Menu with an ARM9 error.

Oh ok, and i thought that ARM9 error was less serious than ARM11 !
Generally does the softbricked old3ds can be fix ? Or it end bad, like a bricked console ?

The quadruple format is finished and everything went good, no problems.
I'm doing the h2test right now, still 30minutes left before then ending of the process.

By the way this is the result for H2testw : h2test.jpg

To uninstall a title from FBI just select "Titles" and look for the cia file you installed. This is assuming "Titles" doesn't make it crash too.

I just lunched FBI and do what you told me, it worked perfectly with no crash or issues !

And i just went to parameter / data management / nintendo 3ds and software and the 3ds didn't crash with the Arm9 error - Data Abort !

---------------------

EDIT : I've finished to check if everything is ok and working. There is no problem, no crash anymore. I will try to install a cia file from internet for pokemon ultra sun instead of dumping my cartridge.

Thx to TurdPooCharger et Filo97 for the quick answer and help !

Sorry, late reply. Had to catch up on sleep.

In the case of sergej's softbricked o3DSXL with ARM9 (svcBreak), fixing that requires one of the follow:
Last but not least, the nuclear option.
  • Lazarus3DS (When everything else fails. Avoid if possible. Will replace console unique files with a donor's. For super softbrick scenarios where everything has already been deleted.)

There are some old timers who might suggest the original Decrypt9 CTRTransfer, but this option should not be considered because of these reasons.

By the way this is the result for H2testw : -snip-
You may want to passively check your installed titles in the Nintendo 3DS folder for data corruption. See path (A).

If GodMode9 verifies the titles to be intact but the o3DSXL later goes back to crashing in Data Management, your SD card's title.db & import.db will need to be replaced. See path (B).

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    still only 600-700 nits i have to use the contrast enhancer to make bright lights look as bright as they are supposed to but the alternative was the next tier up and buying a demo model that would've been about the same cost, that had 1000 nits but issues with black crush

    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

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    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

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • 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:
    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
    Gift
  • 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
    Gift
  • 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
    Gift
  • 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.
    Gift
  • 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.
