    Hey, if it says "updates installed. rebooting in 10 seconds..." and doesn't reboot and instead just sits there, is it safe to reboot manually?

    Wait ten minutes and then do it.

    If your 3ds boots to a black screen, take out the sd card and then boot(without sd card).

    If I'm wanting to downgrade a N3DS US or Japanese, which downgrader should I use that's the safest?
    Also what's this talk about CIA files after people said not to use CIA files? I thought you're supposed to use those TTP files or w/e

    Weird problem here guys, I ran the sysupdater and i got an error "failed to get cia file info". Nothing started installing or anything, but I seem to be bricked. Can't access recovery and I just have the blue led. This was on an old 3DS XL running 10.3. Tried removing the SD card as well, nothing. Any ideas?

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)

    no one can help you if they don't know which one you need. PLUS it's not allowed to provide links to the illegal content. You will have to search for it in google. Many people have posted hints (search terms, file names and other references) in the thread. You should read through for those.

    Well after 2 formats I'm still having the failed cia information error. I'll just wait till I wake up to see if anything gets better for N3DS Xl users.

    NOTE: DO NOT DO THIS AT ALL. What would happen if you press "A" instead of "Y"?

    I'm new here and new to everything about hacking, I've never installed any hacks on my New 3DS XL (USA) never, never used any exploits before, so I got some questions.

    1: Does that mean that the update and recovery problems regarding that infamous tubehax does not apply to me right?. This would be the first time I'm doing anything on my New 3DS.

    2: What is KTM? I've read that term before. But I don't know what it means.

    3: Right now my New 3DS version is 10.3.0-28U. This is the same as 10.3 people talk about right?. I should stay there no matter what and wait for a stable downgrader or a custom firmware for my version right?. I'm sorry if make stupid questions, I'm new on everything here.

    4: I only got one SD card and I got games on it so I'm not keen on formatting it becuase I loose my saves (So goodbye MH4U G rank status...). I don't have to format it in other to downgrade or hack my New 3DS XL right?.
