Technical Details (optional)

This method of using Seedminer for further exploitation uses your movable.sed file to decrypt any DSiWare title for the purposes of injecting an exploitable DSiWare title into the DS Internet Settings application.

This is a currently working implementation of the “FIRM partitions known-plaintext” exploit detailed here.

What You Need

  • Your movable.sed file from completing Seedminer
  • The latest release of Frogminer_save (Frogminer_save.zip)
  • The latest release of b9sTool (boot.nds)
  • The latest release of Luma3DS (the Luma3DS .zip file)

Section I - CFW Check

As an additional safety measure, we will perform an additional check for custom firmware. This is because using this method when custom firmware is already installed has a risk of bricking the console (rendering it unusable without recovery methods like ntrboot).

  1. תכבו את המכשיר
  2. Hold the (Select) button
  3. Power on your device while still holding the (Select) button
  4. If the check was successful, you will boot to the HOME Menu and you may proceed with this guide
  5. תכבו את המכשיר

If you see a configuration menu or the console immediately powers off, you already have CFW, and continuing with these instructions may BRICK your device! Follow Checking for CFW to upgrade your existing CFW.

Section II - BannerBomb3

In this section, you will trigger the BannerBomb3 exploit using the DSiWare Management menu and copy the resulting file dump to your computer so that you can use it on the next section.

  1. תכניסו מחדש את כרטיס הSD שלכם לתוך המכשיר שלכם
  2. תפעילו את המכשיר
  3. Launch System Settings on your device
  4. Navigate to Data Management -> DSiWare-> SD Card (image)
  5. Use the D-Pad to navigate and press the (A) button to select “Dump DSiWare”
    • Your device will automatically reboot
  6. תכבו את המכשיר

Section III - Prep Work

In this section, you will copy the files necessary to temporarily replace DS Connection Settings with Flipnote Studio, which is used to launch the boot9strap (custom firmware) installer.

  1. תכניסו את ה-SD שלכם למחשב
  2. Open the DSIHaxInjector_new website on your computer
  3. Under the “Username” field, enter any alphanumeric name (no spaces or special characters)
  4. Under the “DSiBin” field, upload your 42383841.bin file from the root of your SD card using the first “Browse…” option
  5. Under the “MovableSed” field, upload your movable.sed file using the second “Browse…” option
  6. Under the “InjectionTarget” field, set the injection target to DSinternet (NOT memorypit)
  7. Click “Build”
    • Wait a few seconds for the build process to complete
  8. In the Build History section on the left, type the Username into the “Filter Builds” field
  9. Click on the first search result
    • This result should have the latest timestamp
  10. Click the “output_(name).zip” link
  11. Navigate to Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <ID1> -> Nintendo DSiWare on your SD card
    • <ID0> is the 32-letter folder name that you copied in Seedminer
    • <ID1> is a 32-letter folder inside of the <ID0>
  12. Delete F00D43D5.bin from your Nintendo DSiWare folder
  13. Copy the 42383841.bin file from the hax folder of the downloaded DSiWare archive (output_(name).zip) to the Nintendo DSiWare folder
  14. 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
  15. Copy boot.nds (B9STool) to the root of your SD card
  16. Copy the private folder from the Frogminer_save .zip to the root of your SD card

Section V - Flipnote Exploit

If you would prefer a visual guide to this section, one is available here.

In this section, you will perform a series of very specific steps within Flipnote Studio that, when performed correctly, will launch the boot9strap (custom firmware) installer.

  1. Complete the initial setup process for the launched game until you reach the main menu
    • Select the left option whenever prompted during the setup process
  2. Using the touch-screen, select the large left box, then select the box with an SD card icon

  4. Press (X) or (UP) on the D-Pad depending on which is shown on the top screen
  5. Select the second button along the top with a film-reel icon
  6. Scroll right until reel “3/3” is selected
  7. Tap the third box with the letter “A” in it
  8. Scroll left until reel “1/3” is selected
  9. Tap the fourth box with the letter “A” in it
  10. If the exploit was successful, your device will have loaded b9sTool
  11. Using the D-Pad, move to “Install boot9strap”
    • If you miss this step, the system will exit to HOME Menu instead of installing boot9strap and you will need to open System Settings, then start over from Step 6 of Section IV
  12. Press (A), then press START and SELECT at the same time to begin the process
  13. Once completed and the bottom screen says “done.”, exit b9sTool, then power off your device
    • אולי תצטרכו לאלץ כיבוי על ידי החזקת כפתור ההפעלה
    • 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
    • If you see the Luma Configuration screen, power off your device and continue to the next section

    • If you boot to HOME Menu, follow this troubleshooting guide
  2. לחצו על (Start) על מנת לשמור ולהפעיל מחדש

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

  • On the next page, you will install useful homebrew applications to complete your setup.
