    Hello again all! For the past few days I've been scouring all over this site and the entire internet, and I can't find an answer :(

    Here's my setup:
    US N3DS originally 9.0 fw, using Ninjhax 1 to launch Pasta ( later today will have reiNAND with an updated 9.5 emuNAND - shouldnt be a problem getting that up and running)

    Here's my goal:
    To play custom VC games ( specifically Sega Genesis Mortal Kombat - which i found as a CIA on some site)


    I've read different things about deleting some file from NAND, and replacing it with a CIA found on that same site, either

    AGB_FIRM-PatchedV1-0004013820000202.cia


    or

    AGB_FIRM-PatchedV2-0004013820000202.cia (with GBA BIOS boot screen)


    Now... getting reiNAND going isn't my issue, but can I use BBM to install one of the patched AGB_FIRM CIAs above, instead of FBI? Don't I need to delete some system title before doing so? Should this be done in Pasta sysNAND? And if I decide to unlink my NANDs will I still be able to play custom injected VC games in my reiNAND 9.5??

    Please help, or point me in the right direction?

    Thanks for your time
    -Mark

    You don't need AGB_firm patched unless you want to play Gameboy Advanced games

    Thanks for your reply. Can BBM be used for this or does it have to be FBI?


    Thanks for your reply too. I would like to also be able to play some GBA games along with games from other systems as well...

    As example, here are the names of some of the CIA's I'd like to to install/play, that I found on some random website:


    Super.Mario.Bros.3.NES.VC.USA.CTR-N-SMB3.ID00172-3DS.cia
    Super.Mario.Advance.2.Super.Mario.World.GBA.VC.EUR OPE-MULTI.CTR-N-AA2P.ID0A072-3DS.cia

    Would I need an emulator for these games? Do I need to install that AGB_FIRM-PatchedV1-0004013820000202.cia or AGB_FIRM-PatchedV2-0004013820000202.cia (with GBA BIOS boot screen) in order to do so?

    And are any of these things playable in rei emuNAND 9.5 or would I have to play them in Pasta on sysNAND?

    I'm sorry for all the questions, I just really don't want to brick my N3DS during the process. Thanks for your time.

    It doesn't really matter. I use both.


    You need to install AGB_FIRM-PatchedV1 or V2 to play GBA. Doesn't matter which one. MAKE SURE YOU DELETE 0004013820000202 AND INSTALL AGB_FIRM-PatchedV2-0004013820000202.cia. Just follow the instructions on the link I gave you and make sure it's for NEW 3DS not OLD 3DS.

    You don't need AGB to play NES .cias
