    I have a 9.2 Firmware 2DS with menuhax, for some reason I can't get FBI to work so I can use savedatafiler so I can import/export Pokemon Sun and Moon save files. I can do pretty much any other 3DS game I own with JKSM, but since I only ever get a Yellow screen with it I wanted to try an alternative save program.

    The guide explains everything in excessive detail.

    Just follow Plailect's guide to have everything you could possibly need.

    Okay for the Decrypt9 thing the first link gives me a blank browser screen, the other 3 basically crash the system, what am I doing wrong?

    Savedatafiler is a dev signed CIA file - hence the "can't install" because you're not using a dev unit (if you were, you'd only be able to install dev signed apps and not games etc).

    There's a "properly signed" cia version which will install on retail consoles fine (I've still got the older version installed on my N3DS XL), but JK's Save Manager is leagues better than Nintendo's own offering (among other things, it allows you to restore "time locked" save files (ala Pokemon or Animal crossing) which Savedatafiler wouldn't allow (you'd get a corrupt save)).

    You'll have to give more info here.

    By browser, are you talking about viewing the Decrypt9 page on your PC [to download it]?

    By "other 3" are you talking about options within Decrypt9 or on the guide?

    I mean in the guide it gives 4 links to try on the 3DS browser to activate Decrypt9. The first one gives you an empty browser menu that locks up the system if you try to exit it, the other 3 just make it glitch out completely

    EDIT: I made the File9 folder and both .dat files are on the root of the SD. Was there anything else I needed to put onto it?

    Are they any files that would interfere with the process? I admit my SD card is a big mess of various homebrew programs in a desperate attempt to get Sun and Moon to work over the last week

    This is the Root of my SD:

    Folders:
    3DS
    DCIM
    files9
    GBA Roms
    menuhax
    mGBA
    mmap
    Nintendo 3DS
    retroarch
    saveDataBackup
    SNES Roms
    Themes

    Files:
    blargSnes
    boot.3dsx
    code.bin
    Decrypt9WIP.dat
    FBI.3dsx
    FBI.cia
    firmware.bin
    Homebr3w.cia
    injectionbug.bin
    JKSM.cia
    Launcher.dat
    ramsav.bin
    rxtools.dat
    SaveDataFiler.cia
    screenshots_raw.bin
    webkithax.bin

    My 3DS Folder:

    Folders:
    blargSnes
    CHMM2
    ctr-httpwn
    Decrypt9WIP
    FBI
    ftpd
    gpsp_libretro
    hans
    install
    JKSM
    manuhax_manager
    mbba
    prboom
    qtm
    scrtool

    Files:
    eshop.smdh
    eshop
    ironhax.smdh
    ironhax
    save_manager.3dsx
    save_manager
    sploit_installer_oot3dhax.smdh
    sploit_installer_oot3dhax
    sploit_installer_stickerhax.smdh
    sploit_installer_stickerhax

    Just tell me anything I can delete without worries, I don't care about playing SNES/GBA games or anything anymore, just need to know what programs are needed to run menuhax and a save manager CIA.

    I have been following the guide but I can't get Decrypt9 to boot via web browser and the troubleshooting section isn't helping

    Folders:
    3DS - Should be here
    DCIM - Just pictures
    files9 - Should not be here prior to doing the guide
    GBA Roms - Unnecessary
    menuhax - Depends on your entrypoint
    mGBA - Again, unnecessary
    mmap - Not sure what this is
    Nintendo 3DS - Home menu data/etc.
    retroarch - Unnecessary
    saveDataBackup - Unnecessary
    SNES Roms- Unnecessary
    Themes- Unnecessary

    Files:
    blargSnes- Unnecessary
    boot.3dsx - Necessary
    code.bin - I assume this is for Romhacking
    Decrypt9WIP.dat - Depends on step in guide, should not be here prior
    FBI.3dsx - Homebrew
    FBI.cia - Delete then re-add when guide says
    firmware.bin - IDK what this is
    Homebr3w.cia- IDK what this is
    injectionbug.bin- IDK what this is
    JKSM.cia- IDK what this is
    Launcher.dat - Guide will tell
    ramsav.bin- IDK what this is
    rxtools.dat - Rxtools user?
    SaveDataFiler.cia - Unnecessary
    screenshots_raw.bin - Unnecessary
    webkithax.bin - Rx?

    My 3DS Folder: -Doesn't matter, just replace what the guide puts in there.

    Here is what I did specfically:

    -I created the file9 folder on the SD card root
    -I put the two .dat files on the root
    -then when I go to boot the program via the browser the first link given gives an empty browser screen that freezes the system when it closes
    -the second link give the message "Failed to load a part of this page" with a scrambled mess on the bottom screen that locks up the system
    -the third link gives a message too fast to read and then also freezes with a scambled bottom screen that locks up the system
    -the forth link has a white bottom screen with the message "Downloading ROP file GW17576.dat: failed" and lets you exit to the main menu with no problem

    Get the latest decrypt9 release from here: https://github.com/d0k3/Decrypt9/releases Copy the Decrypt9WIP folder to the /3ds folder on your sd card. Run homebrew from your sysnand and start Decrypt9. It will not run from the Homebrew launcher on emunand.

    Okay what is a sysand, I know this is a stupid question for someone with so many homebrew programs on their 2DS already. Also I found out that I actually have 9.4, because I'm retarded. How do I open up a .torrent file? I can't get to the 9.2 downgrade folder, the link given for the downgrade instead gives a file of that type

    Since you are on 9.4, you will have to begin from the beginning of the guide. The guide will, once again, explain everything.

    That was the issue.

    SysNAND is the native system NAND. NAND is kinda like your system files. EmuNAND means Emulated NAND, a fake NAND that runs over your SysNAND. EmuNAND is outdated, and you should not use it. Use SysNAND A9LH + LUMA3DS. The guide will get you to the point if you follow it to the 'T'.

    Open up a torrent file with UTorrent, be sure to look around resources for a good Anti-Virus before getting UTorrent. Remember to quit UTorrent after it downloads. Do not just 'X' out of it, literally quit it. For a future question I know you'll have, seeding is nothing you need to worry about, it means your download is finished (for the purposes you'll use.)
