Technical Details (optional)

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

To accomplish this, we can use the Download Play functionality of the game Mario Kart 7, using a 3DS with custom firmware already installed along with a custom game plugin.

This custom plugin will send a hacked payload to an unhacked console, which then 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.

For a more technical explanation, see the following links for information on the kartdlphax and unSAFE_MODE exploits: kartdlphax, unSAFE_MODE.

Compatibility Notes

Para seguir estas instrucciones, necesitarás lo siguiente:

  • Una segunda 3DS con custom firmware (la 3DS de origen) que sea de la misma región que la 3DS que estás intentando modificar (la 3DS de destino)
    • The consoles must be USA, JPN, or EUR region consoles
  • Una copia física o digital de Mario Kart 7 de la misma región que ambas consolas
  • Una tarjeta SD para cada consola

Qué necesitas

En la 3DS de origen (la 3DS con custom firmware):

En la 3DS de destino (la 3DS que estás intentando modificar):

Section I - Hardware Button Check (target 3DS)

In this section, you will see whether your shoulder buttons are working on your device. This will determine which method you will follow on the next page.

  1. Enciende tu consola
  2. Once you see the HOME Menu, press the (Left Shoulder) and (Right Shoulder) buttons at the same time
    • The camera applet should appear

  5. Copia SafeB9SInstaller.bin desde el .zip de SafeB9SInstaller a la raíz de tu tarjeta SD
  6. Copy usm.bin from the unSAFE_MODE .zip to the root of your SD card
  7. Create a folder called 3ds on the root of your SD card
  8. Copy the slotTool folder from the unSAFE_MODE .zip to the 3ds folder on your SD card
  9. Saca la tarjeta SD de la computadora y ponla en la 3DS de destino

Section IV - kartdlphax

In this section, you will use Download Play to transfer the exploit data from the source 3DS to the target 3DS, which can be used to overwrite your Wi-Fi slots with hacked data. Your Wi-Fi connection settings will be temporarily overwritten while the exploit is active.

  1. Enciende la 3DS de origen
    • Si te le pide que configures Luma3DS, pulsa START para guardar la configuración

    • If you have launched kartdlphax previously, the last selected settings will be loaded. If they are correct, select Use settings and skip the next 3 steps. If they are incorrect, select Change settings and proceed.
  7. Select your target 3DS device type (Old 3DS family or New 3DS family)
  8. Select the following exploit type depending on your system version:
    • 11.16.0: select xPloitInjector (11.16)
    • 11.17.0: select xPloitInjector (11.17)
  9. A confirmation menu will show up. If the settings shown on the top screen are correct, select Use settings
    • If the settings are not correct, press Change settings and modify them accordingly
  10. Select Create Group
  11. Enciende la 3DS de destino
    • Asegúrate de que la conectividad inalámbrica está habilitada

  13. Entra al grupo creado por la 3DS de origen
  14. Selecciona “Start” en la 3DS de origen una vez detectada la 3DS de destino
  15. Once multiplayer has loaded, navigate to Grand Prix -> 50cc -> (any driver) -> Mushroom Cup -> OK
  16. Espera un rato (se debería mostrar un porcentaje en la 3DS de origen)
  17. If the exploit was successful, the target 3DS will have booted into the 3DS ROP xPloit Injector
    • If the exploit was not successful, power off the source 3DS and target 3DS and start again from the beginning of Section III - kartdlphax
  18. Press (X) to inject unSAFE_MODE
  19. If the injection was successful, the screen will turn green and the target 3DS will automatically power off
