Required Reading

In order to exploit the SAFE_MODE firmware of our system, we need to inject an exploited WiFi profile.

We can do this using an existing exploit, BannerBomb3.

To accomplish this, we use your system’s encryption key (movable.sed) to build a DSiWare backup that exploits the system in order to inject the exploited WiFi profile into your connections list.

Once the WiFi profile has been injected, we will use SAFE_MODE, which is a recovery feature present on all 3DS consoles, to activate the exploited WiFi profile.

These instructions work on USA, Europe, Japan, and Korea region consoles as indicated by the letters U, E, J, or K after the system version.

If your (Right/Left Shoulder), (D-Pad Up), or (A) buttons do not work, you will need to follow an alternate branch of Seedminer. For assistance with this matter, join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord and ask, in English, for help.

Was du brauchst

  • Your movable.sed file from completing Seedminer
  • The latest release of SafeB9SInstaller (direct download)
  • The latest release of boot9strap (direct download)
  • The latest release of Luma3DS (the Luma3DS .zip file)

Schritt I - Vorbereitungen

  1. If your device is powered on, power off your device
  2. Open unSAFE_MODE Exploit Injector on your computer
  3. Upload your movable.sed using the “Choose File” option
  4. Click “Build and Download”
    • This will download an exploit DSiWare called F00D43D5.bin and a SAFE_MODE exploit data file called usm.bin inside of a zip archive (unSAFE_MODE.zip)
  5. Stecke deine SD-Karte in deinen Computer
  6. Copy boot.firm and boot.3dsx from the Luma3DS .zip to the root of your SD card
    • The root of the SD card refers to the initial directory on your SD card where you can see the Nintendo 3DS folder, but are not inside of it
  7. Erstelle einen Ordner namens boot9strap im Stammverzeichnis deiner SD-Karte
  8. Kopiere boot9strap.firm und boot9strap.firm.sha aus der boot9strap .zip in den /boot9strap/-Ordner auf deiner SD-Karte
  9. Copy SafeB9SInstaller.bin from the SafeB9SInstaller .zip to the root of your SD card
  10. Copy usm.bin from unSAFE_MODE.zip to the root of your SD card
  11. Navigate to Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <ID1> on your SD card
    • The <ID0> will be the same one that you used in Seedminer
    • The <ID1> is a 32 character long folder inside of the <ID0>
  12. Create a folder named Nintendo DSiWare inside of the <ID1>
    • If you already had the folder and there are any existing DSiWare backup files (<8-character-id>.bin) inside, copy them to your PC and remove them from your SD card
  13. Copy the F00D43D5.bin file from unSAFE_MODE.zip to the Nintendo DSiWare folder

Section II - BannerBomb3

  1. Stecke deine SD-Karte nun wieder in deinen 3DS
  2. Schalte deine Konsole an
  3. Launch System Settings on your device
  4. Navigate to Data Management -> DSiWare
  5. Click on the SD Card section
  6. Select “Inject haxx”
    • Your device will automatically power off

Section III - unSAFE_MODE

  1. With your device still powered off, hold the following buttons: (Left Shoulder) + (Right Shoulder) + (D-Pad Up) + (A), and while holding these buttons together, power on your device
    • Keep holding the buttons until the device boots into Safe Mode
    • If you’re unable to get into Safe Mode after multiple attempts, one of your buttons may be failing or broken. If this is the case, you will need to follow an alternate branch of Seedminer. For assistance with this matter, join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord and ask, in English, for help.
  2. Press “OK” to accept the update
    • There is no update. This is part of the exploit
  3. Press “I accept” to accept the terms and conditions
  4. The update will eventually fail, with the error code 003-1099. This is intended behaviour
  5. When asked “Would you like to configure Internet settings?”, select “Yes”
  6. On the following menu, navigate to Connection 1 -> Change Settings -> Next Page (right arrow) -> Proxy Settings -> Detailed Setup
  7. If the exploit was successful, your device will have booted into SafeB9SInstaller

Section IV - Installing boot9strap

  1. When prompted, input the key combo given on the top screen to install boot9strap
    • If the top screen is blank, power off your device and re-do Section III
  2. Once it is complete, press (A) to reboot your device
  3. Dein Gerät sollte neu starten und die Luma3DS Konfiguration anzeigen
    • If your device shuts down when you try to power it on, ensure that you have copied boot.firm from the Luma3DS .zip to the root of your SD card
  4. Drücke (Start) zum Speichern und neustarten

At this point, your console will boot to Luma3DS by default.

  • Luma3DS does not look any different from the normal HOME Menu. If your console has booted into the HOME Menu, it is running custom firmware.
  • On the next page, you will install useful homebrew applications to complete your setup.

Section V - Restoring WiFi Configuration Profiles

  1. Launch System Settings on your device
  2. Navigate to Data Management -> DSiWare
  3. Click on the SD Card section
    • Your device should show a menu with some text
  4. Select “Restore slots”
    • Your device will automatically reboot
  5. Schalte deinen 3DS aus
  6. Stecke deine SD-Karte in deinen Computer
  7. Navigate to Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <ID1> -> Nintendo DSiWare on your SD card
