    Hello all,
    I need help. I'm trying to install painthax as a entrypoint, with no previous entrypoint. I'm running 11.4.0-37U on an Old 3DS. As such, if someone else is using painthax, I need to look at their file folder. Normally, with a previous entrypoint you could use the hax's extdata_dump files. But I have no way to run that .3dsx file on my 3DS. I'm attempting to move the files by hand, but I can't find where they fit. If someone can help me without painthax, the config for the file dump reads RESTORE "PAINTHAX" "000019e4:/PAINTHAX".
    Thank you!

    As far as I know painthax is secondary so you need an already hacked 3ds to install it.

    It seems to me like the primary is only needed to move/restore that file. I could easily be wrong, but the only thing that you have to do to gain access to the PaintHax entrypoint is to run the extdata_dump.

    The files are likely console specific (or cartridge if it's a physical game) if it's like most secondaries, though I don't have personal experience with painthax so I could be very wrong.

    Is there a fix? If not, is there a primary access point I can fix without buying any more games?

    According to 3ds.guide, there's no primary entry points for 11.4, only the DSiWare system transfer method.

    Hold out for a bit, an exploit that works on 11.4 should be coming in a few weeks at the longest :)

    As your using a old 3ds with 11.4 firm on it. You do know that there is no working payloads for homebrew if you do not have cfw on your 3ds at this point.

    Actually o3ds ofw 11.4 does have payloads, it was only n3ds that still doesn't have payloads.

    What? No, it's the other way around.

    O3ds got payloads shortly after 11.4 released? Unless I'm forgetting and swapping o3ds with n3ds. It's been a long day and my brain is fried so I wouldn't be surprised.
    Actually thinking about it I do believe I was wrong.
