Concerning Nintendo New 2DS XL/LL and First Hacking Guide

Thursday, 4 May 2017 17:03:23 Asia/Shanghai

The upcoming Nintendo New 2DS XL/LL obviously will be the next cheaper Nintendo handheld console after Switch. Even though this new device is supposed to be released several months later this Summer, we can now do a simple review based on what we know from New 2DS and its similarity with the New 3DS XL. In addition, since Nintendo New 2DS XL/LL will be using the same firmware as 3DS/NEW 3DS handhelds, we'll also give you the first New 2DS XL hacking guide.

Review on Nintendo New 2DS XL/LL
What is Nintendo New 2DS XL/LL?
It's one of the upcoming handheld consoles released by Nintendo in this July. The New 2DS XL is an upgraded version of the standard 2DS and actually features the same improved processor found in the New 3DS XL, which means that you will be able to play games that were once exclusive to the New 3DS and should also enjoy better frame rate stability in standard 3DS games.

The Design and Package
The new 2DS XL is designed to fit between 2DS and 3DS XL handheld consoles. It's lighter than 3DS XL but has the same dimensions, featuring a 4.88-inch primary display and 4.18-inch secondary display. Different from the 2DS which has a flat, tablet design, new 2DS XL has a folding clamshell design. This new device can play all 3DS games but in 2D effect, and also has larger screens. In all, the new Nintendo 2DS XL is a combination of the original 2DS and New 3DS XL.

Package list in the New 2DS XL box:

  • New Nintendo 2DS XL system
  • New Nintendo 2DS XL stylus
  • 4GB microSDHC memory card
  • AR Cards x6
  • Operations Manual
  • AC adapter

Compatible games and Softares
The new Nintendo 2DS XL can be used to play 3ds,ds,dsi,3ds eshop and Virtual console games, even the game titles exclusively for New 3DS consoles. By now there are more than 1000/5000 3ds/nds games in the market, which means you will be able to play over 6000 games on the New 2DS XL.

Function and Performance
The Nintendo New 2DS XL includes all the softwares, allowing you to play games, surf the internet, watch movies and other things within compatibility of the microSDHC card.

Nintendo New 2DS XL Hacking Guide
With Flashcards:
As with NDS games, a R4i Gold 3DS or R4i SDHC 3DS RTS card can be used to play nds games on New 2DS XL, as both these two flashcards can support the latest firmware.
For 3ds games, undoubtedly SKY3DS+ will be the best choice to play 3ds games on the Nintendo New 2DS XL, due to the fact that it supports the latest firmware and its operation is quite simple.

Without flashcards
Nowadays 3ds has been cracked by many different methods. Flashcard hacking is just one simple format of them, besides we can also hack the 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS consoles with homebrew exploits or 3ds custom firmwares. However, after the New 2DS XL is released, it should be work with the latest 3DS Firmware version, which are usually patching the homebrew exploits or 3ds cfws like the Luma3ds. So whether or not we can use any exploits or 3ds cfws to hack the New 2DS XL still remains a question.

Three Essential Flashcarts to Buy in 2016 and 2017

Friday, 19 August 2016 11:40:46 Asia/Shanghai

Which R4i flashcart we should buy in 2016 and 2017 ? Or which flashcart to choose for playing 3DS, DS, GBA and other free games ? Please read on and find the answer !

What are the 3 Essential Flashcarts to Buy in 2016 and 2017 ?

DS Game support: R4I SDHC RTS 3DS
R4I SDHC RTS 3DS is a DS flashcart that 3DS/NDS/NDSi console owners shouldn't miss. It supports Nintendo 3DS/2DS/NEW3DS/DSI/DS Lite/DS for playing DS Roms. As a very classic R4i flashcart, R4I SDHC RTS 3DS has all basic and exclusive R4 features. R4I SDHC RTS 3DS from is the best R4i card which let you play 99% NDS Games on 3DS 11.0.0-33 and DSI 1.4.5.

Why R4I SDHC 3DS RTS is the No.1 must have flashcart ?

  • Easy to setup on 3DS: Setup R4I SDHC 3DS RTS on 3DS or DSI firmware is very easy. Even if your child or you are the newbie, just learn a few minutes and do as the guide, the flashcard can be set up well on 3DS devices without any problems. All you need to do is prepare one working Microsd card, the R4i 3ds firmware from official site and several ds roms. The whole setup is just 3 steps:1. format Microsd card on your PC;2. download, unzip and drag R4i 3ds v1.83b and DS Games to the root of sd card;3. insert R4I SDHC 3DS RTS into 3DS/DS series model. Very simple, isn't it ?
  • Simple to use for play DS Games: Operate this card on 3DS to play free DS games is easy and convenient too. You can see the ds game menu list on the screen, select one and press A, you will enter the game and start to play it freely. What's more, you can choose to turn on/off the cheats code function, save & load the game at any time and softreset when in the gameplay. The R4i 3ds menu also tells you how to use the card on 3DS with different hotkeys.
  • Support both 3DS & DSI firmware: Nintendo doesn’t block or patch R4i 3ds card for years. So buy one R4i 3DS flashcart is more recommended for now. You can use R4I SDHC 3DS RTS for a long time on 3DS/DS console, so the money won't be wasted. By the way, the price of R4I SDHC 3DS RTS is the cheapest one among the 3 Essential flashcarts.

3DS Game support: SKY3DS+/SKY3DS PLUS
SKY3DS+ also named as SKY3DS PLUS card is the No.2 flashcart recommended to buy in 2016 and 2017. It's supporting 3DS Games on 3DS/3DS XL(LL)/NEW 3DS/NEW3DSXL(LL)/2DS consoles. Also it is the hottest flashcart in 2016-- nowadays, 3DS Games are much more attractive to game players: game tiles like Monster Hunter, Fire Emblem, Yokai Watch, Zelda, Pokemon all are widely welcome and played worldwide. So the latest trend of flashcart is led by SKY3DS+/SKY3DS PLUS.

Why SKY3DS+ is the No.2 must have flashcart ?

  • SKY3DS+ card supports the latest and hottest 3DS Games: 3DS Games is the reason why people buy the old 3ds or new 3ds console, so now a flashcart supporting Free 3DS Games is exactly the one people are searching for. The old R4i card can’t satisfy this need, thus the second essential flashcart to buy is SKY3DS+ , which supports the latest 3DS v11.0.0-33E/U/J.
  • Supports simply plug & play. Just like an R4i 3DS card, SKY3DS+ is the only 3ds game flashcard with straight set up: download firmware, 3ds roms, and then put them all to the root of a Microsd card. Then you can play Multiple 3DS Games with inserting SKY3DS+ card to 3DS/NEW 3DS/2DS console.
  • Supports emulating 3DS Game card and no damage to 3DS Firmware: SKY3DS+ doesn’t change or add anything to 3DS Firmware, instead it is emulating the retail 3ds game cartridge to work on Nintendo 3DS handheld systems. So you won’t brick the console under any circumstance.

3DS/DS/GBA/SNES Games all support: DSTWO+/DSTWO Plus
Supercard DSTWO Plus has something in common with top 1 flashcart R4I SDHC 3DS RTS, they are both supporting DS games. But DSTWO Plus does better for GBA and SNES games emulation. So if you want to have one card but to play DS, GBA, SNES games better, you can not buy R4i SDHC 3ds but DSTWO Plus card. Better functions means higher price of course, DSTWO Plus is sold around 40 pound sterling online.

Smilehax, the latest 3ds homebrew entrypoint released by Plutoo, differs from his first exploit Freakyhax and can't be installed on O3DS/N3DS consoles with 3ds game hacking card SKY3DS+. Next we are showing you what SKY3DS+ can do and how to setup Smilehax on Nintendo 3DS.

Why SKY3DS+ can’t be used to setup Smilehax on 3DS ?

Smilehax is one of the 3ds homebrew entrypoints based upon the eShop 3DS game SmileBASIC 3, while SKY3DS+ is a 3ds flashcard emulating the retail 3ds cart which support 3DS cart Roms but not eShop 3ds games. This is why SKY3DS+ cannot be used to setup Smilehax on O3DS/N3DS consoles.

What SKY3DS+ can do on 3DS ?

  • · Multiple 3DS Games. SKY3DS+ let you download and play multiple 3ds games in only one cart.
  • · Free 3DS Games. SKY3DS+ supports playing downloaded 3ds roms or your own 3ds game backup without buying the retail game card.
  • · 3DS Game Switch. SKY3DS+ has 2 orange buttons, enabling you to switch between different 3ds games by pressing them back and forth.
  • · Work with MicroSD/SDHC card. SKY3DS+ is compatible with Microsd card up to 128gb, thus can store and play 10 to 100 3DS Games at a time.
  • · Access eshop to update 3DS Games, download DLC and so on. SKY3DS+ is just like a 3ds game card when it works on 3DS.
  • · Play online

What SKY3DS+ can't support on 3DS ?

  • · Other region 3DS Games differ from your console region.
  • · 3DS Homebrews.
  • · 3DS Cheats.

Which 3ds homebrew exploits SKY3DS+ can support ?
If a 3ds homebrew exploit can be supported by a certain game card, then it can also be installed by SKY3DS+ , for example the Freakyhax. In addition, whether or not we can use SKY3DS+ card to run one homebrew entrypoint, we are still able to use SKY3DS+ card on 3DS/NEW 3DS consoles. So we can overcome SKY3DS+ shortcoming -- using SKY3DS+ together with homebrews, we can play Multiple region 3ds games on 3ds handhelds.

Smilehax User Guide on 3DS/NEW 3DS


  • · A JAP or USA copy of the game (only available on the eShop)
  • · Recent 3DS firmware, including latest (11.0.0-33) as of this writing

Note: For USA versions, currently only SmileBASIC 3.31 is supported.

1. Get the homebrew starter kit from the homebrew launcher website and put it on your sdcard.
2. Enable WiFi on your 3DS.
3. Fill in your firmware version here:

4. Fill in your SmileBASIC version/region (see FAQ if you can’t find your version):

5. Click the “Create Programs with SmileBASIC” button.
6. Enter the following script manually in EDIT mode: “Please select a SmileBASIC version.”
7. Switch back to DIRECT mode, and write the following: SAVE “INSTALL”.
8. If you make a typo, you can write LOAD “INSTALL”, fix it, and save it again with SAVE “INSTALL“.
9. Execute it by writing RUN in DIRECT mode.
10. If everything went well, the screen will become blue, then green.
11. The game will exit with an “An error has occured” popup.
12. Start the game again. Now run the HAX script!

FAQ for Smilehax Installing
Q: How do I trigger the exploit?
A: After installation, you can run the exploit by clicking: Browse Projects → [DEFAULT] → HAX → confirm.

Q: My version isn’t supported. Help!
A: You can downgrade SmileBASIC by removing the installed upgrade from 3DS settings. American users on version lower than 3.31 can use another exploit by MrNbaYoh.

It's possible to transfer save files from one region to another through an app called JK Save Manager. Rhythm Tengoku: The Best Plus is an example of a Japanese game, in which you could export & Import it's save into the USA/EUR version of Rhythm Heaven Megamix. Basically, the saves you export can be imported on any region of the game. Also anybody can import the save, not just you. So feel free to share your saves with others!

Note: It's been reported that not every game can have it's save transferred, such as Monster Hunter 4G to MH4U for example. Most games can have their saves transferred though.

JK Save Manager

[Export the save]
1. Install JK Save Manager's cia and launch the app.
2. Let JK Save Manager load up your list of titles. Choose refresh games if necessary. For each new game you install on your 3DS, you'll have to refresh this list for it to show up at all. It basically cache's your list of games forever.
3. Go to "SD/Cia" and choose the game that you plan to export from.
4. Choose "Export save" and choose "new". Name it anything you want, I prefer to name mine based on the date.
5. Now look for the other game you wish to import the save to and export the save.
(Note: Before you'll be able to export this save, you must have launched the game at least once for it to create save data.)
6. Keep pressing B until the app exits out.

[Import the save]
1. Put your SD card into a computer (This step can also be done with CTRXplorer on your 3DS if you know how to use it).
2. Navigate into "SD:/JKSV/Saves/(NameofGame)/ .
3. Once in the game's folder, copy all files in this directory.
4. Go back once, and go into the target game's folder that you wish to import the save for.
5. Paste the files here, and choose replace.
6. Put the SD back into the 3DS and launch JK Save Manager.
7. Go to "SD/Cia", then your target game that you're importing for.
8. Choose "Import save file" and it will import the save.
9. Keep pressing B until it exits out.
10. Launch your game and see if the save file works (Which it should).

All is done and enjoy !

The Prospect of Nintendo NX: will it Have a Portable Handset ?

Tuesday, 12 July 2016 10:13:42 Asia/Shanghai

Though Nintendo hasn't formally published details about their new generation consoles NX so far, many rumors about Nintendo NX still goes and some of Nintendo's patent have already been exposed for a while. According to relevant news, information and patent released last year, it indicates that NX may be containing both home console and handheld console.

Few days ago, a new patent of Nintendo was exposed, perhaps showing the model of Nintendo NX. Judging from the report of a foreign site, this patent was applied in December 2015 by Nintendo, however not having appeared until recently. Also a fresh patent shows a simple and square touch-based interface, though the focus of the application if on sound and vibration technology.

Besides that focus, one of our favorite images shows a peripheral which can be placed on the core device; as we can see, it replaces parts of the screen that would otherwise be virtual buttons with physical inputs. Obviously, it's quite similar in concept to plenty of controller options available on smart devices. Though it being just a patent, we would expect the final product to have much more of a "Nintendo touch".

This patent is interesting primarily for the fact that it reinforces the prospect of a portable aspect to Nintendo NX. With Nintendo having merged its portable and home console departments some years ago, talk of a "new way to play" and the sense that the company want to shift to one set of development projects rather than supporting two (as with Wii U / 3DS), then it certainly seems very likely.

What Are the Changes on the New V11.0.0-33 for New 3DS & Old 3DS ?

Friday, 8 July 2016 14:38:43 Asia/Shanghai

There may be a lot of misinformation going around concerning what changed with 3ds firmware v11.0.0-33, so this article is designed to clear up about this.

The New 3DS V11.0.0-33 update was released for both N3DS and O3DS consoles on 9th May, 2016 for all regions. The Nintendo official changelog can be found here and also a 3dbrew page with technical details can be found at here.

Confirmed 1:
arm9loaderhax users are safe to update SysNAND and EmuNAND / RedNAND.
Confirmed 2:
EmuNAND/RedNAND users are safe to update their EmuNAND / RedNAND (but never SysNAND!).

FYI, any users of this GUIDE (or in general Luma3DS + NTR firmware bin) will be completely unaffected by most of these changes since the NTR firmware bin replaces 11.0.0's firmware with firmware of a lower version.

The Changes (or Lack Thereof)
Cubic Ninja [ninjhax]

  • · Lost access to both http:C and soc:U, which means Cubic Ninja on any version 11.0.0 and above will no longer be able to download it’s payload off the internet. This means more code must be squeezed into the space of a single QR code, however smea believes this is only a temporary problem and can be worked around given time.
  • · Received codebin physical-memory randomization which was originally added for the eShop in 10.4.0-29, and this temporarily makes launching the exploit very unreliable until an update is released.

Ocarina Of Time 3D [oot3dhax]

  • · Received codebin physical-memory randomization which was originally added for the eShop with 10.4.0-29, which temporarily makes launching the exploit very unreliable until an update is released.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon [supermysterychunkhax]

  • · Nothing

VVVVVV [(v*)hax]

  • · Nothing

Super Smash Bros. [smashbroshax]

  • · Nothing


  • · fpdver was incremented once again, meaning that once a server-side toggle is flipped (usually about a week after release of updates), users with outdated friends-sysmodules will be unable to play online.


  • · This function which is used for many arm11 kernel applications such as BootNTR and RetroArch, was completely removed. This will temporarily break applications that use it unless you are running the latest Luma3DS commit.

“svchax” (aka memchunkhax2.1)

  • · This was not truly patched once and for all, but has had some complications introduced
  • · New security checks in kernel heaps were added which makes “svchax” require extremely precise timing & trickery to execute, breaking it (probably permanently) until a fix is implemented.
  • · Downgrading in general, regardless of any arm11 kernel exploits (like svchax) released in the future, has been broken (possibly permanently). The firmware is now containing a hardcoded list of minimum versions and won't let us install a system title of a lower version than in the list, even though we have the permission to install our own titles. This makes downgrading on V11.0.0’s firmware impossible if no software workaround is found.
  • · Currently there is a hardmod workaround to flash an older firm to NAND and re-enable downgrading, but this possibly would be fixed in v11.1.0 and it’s only fortunate that it hasn’t been fixed yet.

Review on 3DS Zero Time Dilemma, is it supported by 3DS R4i chip?

Tuesday, 28 June 2016 14:37:33 Asia/Shanghai

What's the newest and most popular 3ds game currently? The answer is Zero Time Dilemma, a game that will be released for the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS in North America and Europe on June 28th, and in Japan on June 30th. It also has a PC version, which is planned to be released worldwidely on June 30th. Today's post is about review on 3DS Zero Time Dilemma and whether it's compatible with R4i 3DS on 3DS/3DS XL(LL).

Review on 3DS Zero Time Dilemma
The reviews for Zero Time Dilemma have been overwhelmingly positive and it looks like it's going to be something of a masterpiece! Please note that some of the reviews included are of the PS Vita version. The vast majority of the reviews only cite gameplay and story without touching on the graphical differences between the Vita and 3DS.

Metacritic: 85(It keeps the reviews for each version of a game separate)
OpenCritic: 88(It groups them together to give the game a single score)

We Got This Covered – 5/5
Zero Time Dilemma wraps up the long-running Zero Escape series in style. Presentation issues aside, it’s the masterpiece we’ve been waiting for, and the one that the fans deserve.

Destructoid – 9.5/10
Zero Time Dilemma is nothing short of a flawed masterpiece.

GamingTrend – 9/10
Zero Time Dilemma takes some bold strides to tell the series’ final chapters, but even when it falters, it’s never slow to catch back up and deliver. Through well-designed escape rooms, brilliant writing and narrative decisions, and a more relatable cast than ever, Zero Time Dilemma puts the most deserving and exceptional final touches on this excellent trilogy.

Hardcore Gamer – 4/5
While it ends up feeling a bit like the weakest game in the series so far, even a weak Zero Escape game is still an absolute delight, and Zero Time Dilemma is no exception.

NintendoWorldReport – 7.5/10
I'm glad that I got to see the series through to the end. Though it answered some of the questions I had while replaying the prior games, the execution of Zero Time Dilemma itself has some rough patches and relying on our message boards/GameFAQs/other places of ill repute is going to cause a lot of problems for those playing it day one. If you haven’t played the two prequels, at least play Virtue’s Last Reward first.

Can we play 3DS Zero Time Dilemma with R4i SDHC/R4i 3DS chip?
Simply speaking, R4i SDHC or R4i 3DS cartridge is the item which cracks 3DS and DSi firmware to run free DS Roms or DS game backups. It has other features too, but its main function is to let you play All free DS ROMs in a single cart without buying any retail ds game card! Therefore, Zero Time Dilemma in 3DS version can’t be supported by R4i SDHC/R4i 3DS card.
However, SKY3DS+ card is making it possible: you can play 3DS Zero Time Dilemma with the SKY3DS+ card. It supports Nintendo 3ds games on 3DS family models, and you can use SKY3DS+/SKY3DS plus to play many other 3ds games besides 3DS Zero Time Dilemma, such as Pocket Card Jockey, Disney Art Academy, Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Pokemon Rumble World and around 400 3DS Games. They will be totally free for you if you have one SKY3DS+ card with MicroSD.

Guides on how to downgrade your 3DS(from 10.7/10.6/10.5/10.4 to 9.2)

Tuesday, 17 May 2016 17:05:03 Asia/Shanghai

Below is the guide for downgrading 3ds console from =<10.7 to 9.2. Hope it finds you helpful.

Your console with FW version 10.7/10.6/10.5/10.4

–Homebrew Entrypoint:
10.6/10.7: OOTHax or Ninjhax, since Menuhax and browserhax don't work (currently) on 10.6 or 10.7.
10.4/10.5: OOTHax, Ninjhax, or Menuhax. If you don’t yet have menuhax, you can use the browserhax workaround to get browserhax for installing menuhax.

SafeSysUpdater, to check your downgrade pack.

The new sysUpdater for memchunkhax2.1 from hereor PlaiSysUpdater from here.

–Your console’s 9.2 downgrade pack from ‘that iso site’ [or ‘that chaosful site’. Google this:
MSET 4.X & 6.X backups, Browser backups, Update packs (All Regions) Cha0s Em3rald
If you think Google is failing you, we have DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, Bing (XD) , etc.
!!! NOTE: Don't use Old 3DS pack for a New 3DS, or a New 3DS pack for an Old 3DS/2DS!

–You are recommended to do a system format before downgrading, as it drastically reduces the chances of a brick. Also backup your SD Card, format it, and then copy all files back. That would reduce brick chances too.


1. Put the sysUpdater.3dsx in /3ds/sysUpdater on your SD Card, and the SafeSysUpdater.3dsx in /3ds/SafeSysUpdater folder.

2. Put the downgrade pack cia files in /updates on your SD Card.
3. Start homebrew using your entrypoint.
4. Select SafeSysUpdater and press A to check the files. Don’t press Y to downgrade, please don’t.
5. Only if it says everything is good, exit back to The Homebrew Launcher, and start the sysUpdater.Also:
6. Press Y to downgrade.
7. Wait.
8. Ok, you downgraded your console from 10.7/10.6/10.5/10.4 to 9.2!
Now you are able to use the Gateway 3DS flashcart on your console or install the CFW, and probably arm9loaderhax, and enjoy!
