    Hey there,

    I have got an o3DS with 6.2.0-6E firmware and with the Browser (version 1.7455).

    Problem: I cannot launch rxTools, it goes to the home menu with the message "An error occured..."


    I had to update this o3DS from 3.0.0 with a game (Zelda: A Link Between Worlds).
    Any idea?

    PS: The Gateway browser exploit works, I get the Gateway menu and I already backed up the sysNAND and created an emuNAND (before that I copied the backup to my PC of course).

    Which link are you using to crash the browser?

    Try http://dukesrg.github.io/?rxinstaller.bin

    This one should crash back to home menu, it is intended. This should install mset exploit for booting rxTools.
    If that doesn't work, then you'd have to install it via a DS flashcard.

    The browser crashed again with the same error message.
    It seems it does not work. (I tried to launch the exploit, I get the profile settings for DS instead of running the exploit.)

    I have a DS flashcard (and a DS Lite just in case).
    But I read that I might need to downgrade something (MSET?), which I cannot if I do not get to the rxtools menu.

    You are on 6.2, you can install 6.x mset exploit if your DS flashcard works on 6.2.0

    I had the exact same problem as you, here is how I fixed it:

    The rxtools.net works for pre 3.0 builds that still use rxTools.dat, the github if you have a 3.0 build. I had the same problem, but either the MSET method or what @Nestar said should work for you. The problem is that updating via gamecart doesn't update your browser, so it doesn't work properly. What worked for me was to downgrade to 4.5 with the gateway menu and then everything worked ok :)

    actually depending on the game it can be worse for instance he may have ended up with a stub browser that would not open until he updates the console

    so if anyone is reading this thinking about doing a gamecard update themselves, do it safely only update to 4.1-4.5 using a game from this list 3DS Games with firmware updates in the 4.1 - 4.5 range - EurAsiaWiki


    . . . @Turboloader
    use a ds flashcard to install 6.x mset
    install fbi
    install sysupdater to sysnand
    get 9.2 full update from that iso site
    put update cia files in a folder on sd root called updates
    boot rxtools devmode run sysupdater
    select update folder . . . wait . . . done. problem sloved

    Thanks for your replies!
    At least I am not a noob, so I should be able to get it working.
    I doubt that because the GW exploit works.
    The browser freezes after opening both links. A little while later the browser crashes with the mentioned error message.


    I will try Nestar's method, if that does not work, I will use 6.x mset.

    Just make sure to clear the browser history and cookies before you load the link. Also, if you'll use the rxTools build @Nestar recommended, use http://launcher.rxtools.net :)

    did not know that could even happen by using cartridges to update :/ I updated my console with LoZ: MM and had no major problems installing rxTools, so I guess I got lucky there :D

    From what I've been told only game cartridges that have like 9.9 or so on them would give you a stub browser.
    Any of the cartridges for updating to 9.2 will just leave your browser untouched. If they released new revisions of those games with a stub browser in them they would have been stupid to keep it at that, they'd have also changed the included update to >9.2

    That being said if your browser doesn't work for using the web exploits, once on 9.2 you'd be limited to ninjhax or oot3dhax.

    Thank you very much!
    I followed that tutorial (and of course used brain.exe) and it worked!

    You mean http://launch.rxtools.net ^^
    I used your advice and it helped :)
    Thank you.

    Oh, ok. My mistake.
