    (Direct text from the orignal post)
    This applies to all current 3DS/2DS models. In my testing, this works on the US and EU regions. This applies to version 11.0 - 11.3 due to a recent patch for which allows this to work.
    To start, you need to boot into recovery using A+R+L+Up(DPad) when you press the power button with your SD card inserted into the console.
    At the starting screen, turn on WiFi if it's not on already, take out the SD card and put it into the computer. Keep the console on. On the root of your SD card, put this file: *illegalsavedatafilerdevkitciagotodatisositetogetit* and then download soundhax for your region from soundhax.com. Also you need to get the starter.zip from https://smealum.github.io/3ds/ with the proper otherapp for your version that you have and follow the instructions on the https://smealum.github.io/3ds/ page to get soundhax. After that, download https://github.com/Steveice10/FBI/releases/download/2.4.8/FBI.3dsx and put that file in the 3ds folder in your sd card (the folder was created from the starter zip.) On your 3ds now, put in your SD card, hit cancel and then as your 3ds screen turns back on, take it out. Put it back in now and go to the homemenu.
    Now, some cache from recovery mode is loaded into the system, and during recovery, the system doesn't load some patches. From here you can go into the sound app and open the nedwill file, then load FBI. Now you can install that save-data filer CIA from the beginning. After you do that, turn off the 3ds, turn it on, and in the homemenu you should see the file you just installed. From here you can only install one game/CIA at a time into web-browser or face-raiders, but if you get the FBI CIA file, you can use that to install any game/app from here if you have the CIA here on out.
    Beware that the app you install has to be signed, but using the save data filer from earlier, you can install an out of region game, then just apply a cia to it and launch it with hans if necessary, or install a game from your region which you don't care about, and then apply that so you don't need to use HANS to launch that.

    It was removed because the guy reported the bug to the bug bounty program.

    A mod removed it, I am the original finder of it, thanks for reposting it though, and people can believe what they want, which I will not take that away.

    Still, it can led to the discovery of new exploits on 11.3, even tho Nintendo might be thinking of releasing 11.4/12.0 soon

    It was probably removed because he linked to the Nintendo savdatafiler, which you've also done (remove that link).

    It was removed because it was bullshit.

    So Nintendo wrote their OS only to patch it themselves afterwards? Wow. (I'm obviously being sarcastic here).

    There is no such cache, SAFE_FIRM is merely updating the system.

    Seems like OP misused a lot of technical terms to hide their BS. I mean, this is how scammers do.

    I will,
    Ok, so there are hidden files on the sd card after you turn it off, if you hit "Show Hidden Files" in the 3ds folder, which turning it off not in recovery don't produce those files.

    Ill test it later today if I get a chance. I sense some sketch but I don't see any harm in trying. Just to be safe I'll grab a separate savedatafiler in case they did something with that one.

    No they aren't or that's not directly related. Stop wasting everybody's time.

    TuxSH,

    You are stating a bunch of stuff, even though it seems like you haven't even tried it?

    I've pushed around 150 Luma3DS commits, made numerous 3dbrew contributions, etc. (based on my own RE of the system), and you still claim to have greater or equal knowledge of the system than me?

    Stop bullshitting, everyone who has at least small knowledge of the system would know your stuff is a hoax.
