I currently have sysNAND on 4.3.0-6E, which is not supported by Ninjhax. I have made an emuNAND which is also 4.30-6E. I want to update my emuNAND using a copy of Super Smash Bros. 4, however, every time I launch the game through emuNAND, there is no update prompt, and it launches the game, which just ends up crashing. Is there a way for me to update just the emuNAND using a game card?

The safest way to update emunand is through system settings.

In all cases you should not update in classic mode, only GW/MT mode.
Do not update by entering eshop and using the prompt that displays when you enter.
Do not update from a rom/game cart.

Alternative methods:
- Install devmenu/bbm, then use UpdateCDN to get the .cia updates.. (This requires owning a GW or a MT-card)
Here's How: https://gbatemp.net/posts/5375095
If you have a gateway, you can use the latest system menu safely (9.5.0-23)
BUT, If you have an MT-Card, update to 9.4.0 because the multirom menu breaks after that

- Using a second 3ds and download play to send the update that is on a cartridge (I've only heard of this, I don't know if it works)





If you're using the MT launcher and classic mode as emunand, get PBT cfw and install the browser .cia to your sysnand

I can't update using System Settings because Ninjhax doesn't work past 9.2.

I don't have a GW or MT card, so I can only use classic mode. The tutorials I followed said that's it's safe to update in classic mode, as long as you make sure that it is emuNAND, not sysNAND.

The only way for me to use devmenu is through Palantines CFW. Main problem is that it can take several tries to boot, and even if it does boot, it might freeze shortly after opening an app. So I want to avoid installing the update on CFW. Unless it's possible to boot it like a normal emuNAND without the CFW features in order to make the booting more reliable.

Regarding PBT CFW, will it work using the GW launcher? Or only the MT launcher. How do I obtain just the browser.CIA? Also, how safe is it updating to a browser version that's a lot higher?

The Solution for you is to use UpdateCDN to download the browser .cia.
The title id for the EUR browser is: 0004003000009D02 and the version for 4.0-4.5 is v2050 (according to the guy who released PBT-cfw, the last browser before the exploit was patched also works -- v4096)
Follow These instructions to install the cfw:
Things You'll Need:
Part 2: Setting up 4.5 CFW
  1. Now, copy everything from the SD Card folder in Palantine CFW onto the SD card. Delete the launcher.dat, and rename the launcher_gw.dat to launcher.dat
  2. Copy the boot.bin from PBT-CFW and OVERWRITE the one included with palantine CFW
  3. Insert the SD card into the console and boot up. It will create software management information. Take the SD card out again and open it on your computer.
  4. Now, in your SD card, there should be a Nintendo 3DS folder. Open it, and open the folder inside that. There should be another, so open that too. You should see a exdata folder.
  5. Make a new folder (not inside the exdata folder, but in the same directory as it) called “dbs”. Go into the folder and make a blank text file, named “title.db” or “import.db”. Doesn’t matter which. (if these already exist, skip this step and the next one)
  6. Insert the SD back into the system and go into Settings —> Data Management —> Software. It’ll ask to reset your software management information, so allow it to do so.
  7. Now, go into Other —> Profile. Hold down the L button, and tap DS Profile. If all goes well, the bottom screen will flash white and the CFW will load. If not, simply reboot the system by holding down power and trying again. Make sure to hold L while you do it.
  8. Now, once you’ve gotten into CFW, you’ll need your 3DS’ IP Address. You can use the tool you downloaded earlier (the network scanner) to find the devices from Nintendo. Note the IP (usually looks like 192.168.1.1xx)
  9. Edit the run.bat file in the Palantine CIA folder. Replace the DevMenu_2x.cia part with the name of your CIA, and the IPTOMODIFY with your IP.
  10. Code:
    installcia IPTOMODIFY 1 DevMenu_2x.cia
  11. Code:
    installcia 192.168.1.155 1 DevMenu_2x.cia
  12. Now execute run.bat by double clicking it. It should return a result-code of 0.
    • If you get a failed to connect, make sure the IP is correct and the 3DS is connected to the Internet.
    • If there’s another return code, try steps 8 and onward again.

Once you have devmenu installed use it to install the browser .cia that you got with updateCDN

once you're done you can put the launcher.dat from MT-Card back on your SD and continue to use your emunand
use sysnand for cubic ninja because that's where the browser you installed is, not in MT's classic mode

Followed your instructions and got it to work. Thank you very much, this is much better than the solution I was after.

That works too. Thanks. Though I don't have a copy of Cooking Mama, so I will have to stick to 8.1 emuNAND.

As far as i know gamecard updates don't include the browser... unless that changed recently

The best way is to update emunand via rom (SSB 9.2 for US, Cooking Mama 9.2 for EU), and install the browser you want as .cia after.

I haven't checked if Ninjhax works yet, but I did successfully update the emuNAND using Super Smash Bros. Though I guess you would be right about the browser. The game card updates install x.x.x-6, while Ninjhax requires at least x.x.x-7.

If I were to install a higher version of the browser (say, 9.2.0-20E) to sysNAND via PBT CFW, create a new emuNAND, then update that emuNAND using rxTools and a game card, would it then work? Or will the game card update overwrite the browser version.

That would work, but if you go that route just keep your current emunand... you can use cubic ninja from sysnand

But yes, you could just re-format your emunand to have the browser there too

I guess I'll just stick with what I have now. I want 9.2 emuNAND for custom themes, so there's not much point in 8.1 emuNAND. I'll wait until I get a copy of Cooking Mama.
