Seedminer

Bruteforce Movable skips to step 4

The website has already mined your movable.sed using your friend code and ID0 combination. You can use the movable.sed that it provides you.

Important! You have been locked out of the automated part1 dumper system…

Your friend code was blocked from using the friend code bot because your 3DS did not successfully friend the bot. Ensure your 3DS is properly connected to the Internet, then join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord and ask to be unlocked.

We were unable to successfully complete your bruteforce request. :`(

The website has determined that your movable.sed cannot be brute-forced. Ensure that you gave the correct ID0 to the website. If your ID0 is correct, then you will be unable to use Seedminer and you will have to use an alternate method that will require additional games or hardware.


Installing boot9strap (PicHaxx)

“An exception occurred” or Errdisp when opening Picross

Your device already has custom firmware. You should check for CFW.

“An error has occurred, forcing the software to close…” (white message box)

There is an issue with your otherapp.bin file. Download the latest release of universal-otherapp and place it on the root of your SD card. Do not add the .bin extension if you do not already see it.

“An error has occurred. Hold down the POWER button to turn off the power…” (black screen with text)

Your 00000001.sav and/or otherapp.bin files may be misplaced. Ensure that 00000001.sav is in Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <ID1> -> title -> 00040000 -> 0017c100 -> data and that otherapp.bin is on the root of your SD card.

If your files are in the correct locations, re-create the save using the PicHaxx Save Tool, then place it in Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <ID1> -> title -> 00040000 -> 0017c100 -> data. Ensure that the file is named exactly 00000001.sav and that you used your console’s movable.sed to create it. Re-download the latest release of universal-otherapp and place it on the root of your SD card. Do not add the .bin extension if you do not already see it.

Game starts normally

Your modified 00000001.sav file may be misplaced, or you may have used the wrong movable.sed when creating it. Re-create the save using the PicHaxx Save Tool, then place it in Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> -> <ID1> -> title -> 00040000 -> 0017c100 -> data.

Red/purple/pink and white screen after running Soundhax

If your device is on system version 9.4.0, 9.5.0, or 9.6.0, you may be encountering a bug with universal-otherapp. Follow Homebrew Launcher (Soundhax) instead.

If your device is not on those firmwares, it likely indicates that you already have custom firmware. You should check for CFW.

There is an issue with your otherapp.bin file (it is missing, misplaced, or corrupted). Download the latest release of universal-otherapp and place it on the root of your SD card.

Failed to open SafeB9SInstaller.bin

The file SafeB9SInstaller.bin is missing or misplaced. Download the latest release of SafeB9SInstaller and place it on the root of your SD card. Do not add the .binextensoin if you do not already see it.

Installing boot9strap (USM)

DSiWare Management menu crashes without showing USM menu

Ensure that F00D43D5.bin is the only file in Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> <ID1> -> Nintendo DSiWare. If it is, then re-create it with the unSAFE_MODE Exploit Injector. If this fails, then custom firmware may have been uninstalled on this device in a way that makes this method impossible to perform. If this is the case, join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord for assistance.


BannerBomb3

DSiWare Management menu does not crash

F00D43D5.bin is missing from Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> <ID1> -> Nintendo DSiWare. Make sure that Nintendo DSiWare is correctly spelled and spaced. Uppercase/lowercase does not matter.

DSiWare Management shows a question mark

There may be an issue with your F00D43D5.bin file (it may be corrupted or intended for the wrong 3DS). Re-create your F00D43D5.binfile with the BannerBomb3 tool, ensuring that you use the movable.sed file for your console.

DSiWare Management menu crashes without purple screen

Ensure that F00D43D5.bin is the only file in Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> <ID1> -> Nintendo DSiWare. If it is, then re-create it with the BannerBomb3 tool. If this fails, then custom firmware may have been uninstalled on this device in a way that makes this method impossible to perform. If this is the case, join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord for assistance.


Installing boot9strap (Fredtool)

Error on Fredtool Injector page

Ensure that your movable.sed and DSiWare backup come from the same console. A mismatch will result in an error.

“Haxxxxxxxxx!” does not appear

There is an issue with your 42383821.bin file (it is incorrect, missing, misplaced, or corrupted). Re-create your files with the Fredtool website and ensure that you place the 42383821.bin file from output.zip -> hax in Nintendo 3DS -> <ID0> <ID1> -> Nintendo DSiWare.

Unable to enter Rosalina due to broken button(s)

Download this alternate config.bin and place it in /luma/. This will change the Rosalina key combination to (Y) + (B).

“An exception occurred” after trying to launch Homebrew Launcher via Download Play

There is an issue with your boot.3dsx file (it is missing, misplaced, or corrupted). Download the latest release of the Homebrew Launcher and place boot.3dsx on the root of your SD card, replacing any existing file. Make sure you are extracting the ZIP file with any tool other than WinRAR, as it is known to cause issues with 3DS-related files.

“Scripts directory not found” in GodMode9

You did not copy the gm9 folder from the GodMode9 .zip to the root of your SD card. Download the latest release of GodMode9 and place the gm9 folder on the root of your SD card, merging it with the existing one.

essentials.exefs missing from /gm9/out/

Your device had custom firmware in the past, so you were not automatically prompted to make a backup. Make a backup manually:

  1. Włóż ponownie kartę SD do konsoli
  2. Press and hold (Start), and while holding (Start), power on your device. This will launch GodMode9
  3. Navigate to [S:] SYSNAND VIRTUAL
  4. Select essentials.exefs, then Copy to 0:/gm9/out/
  5. You should now have essentials.exefs in /gm9/out/

The steps detailed here generally assume that your device has a modern custom firmware setup (boot9strap + Luma3DS 8.0 or greater). If your console is running an older homebrew setup (for example, something based on arm9loaderhax or menuhax), you should update your setup before trying these instructions.

My device gets stuck on a black screen, and the blue light turns off

There is an issue with your boot.firm file (it is missing, misplaced, or corrupted). Download the latest release of Luma3DS and place boot.firm on the root of your SD card, replacing any existing file. Make sure you are extracting the ZIP file with any tool other than WinRAR, as it is known to cause issues with 3DS-related files.

If you hear a “popping sound”, potentially accompanied with the backlight turning on for a split second, there is a hardware issue with your device (such as a disconnected backlight cable). You may be able to get your device to boot by holding it at certain angles.

My device gets stuck on a black screen, with a static blue light

The steps below can be attempted in any order, but are listed from least to most time-consuming.

  1. Power off your device, eject the game cartridge if inserted, power on your device, then wait up to ten minutes. If your device boots within ten minutes, the issue has been fixed and is unlikely to reoccur
  2. Rename the Nintendo 3DS folder on your SD card to Nintendo 3DS_BACKUP, then attempt to boot. If your device successfully boots, there is some issue within your Nintendo 3DS folder. Try clearing home menu extdata:
    • Navigate to /Nintendo 3DS/<ID0>/<ID1>/extdata/00000000/
    • Delete the extdata file corresponding to your region:
      • Region EUR: 00000098
      • Region JPN: 00000082
      • Region USA: 0000008f
      • Region CHN: 000000A1
      • Region KOR: 000000A9
      • Region TWN: 000000B1
  3. Ensure that your device does not have ARM11 exception handlers disabled:
    • Power off your device
    • Hold (Select)
    • Power on your device, while still holding (Select)
    • If the “Disable ARM11 exception handlers” box is checked, uncheck it
    • If your device now boots to the “An exception occured” screen, follow My device boots to an error screen
  4. Try booting into recovery mode and updating your system:
    • Power off your device
    • Hold (Left Shoulder) + (Right Shoulder) + (D-Pad Up) + (A)
    • Power on your device
    • If you were successful, the device will boot to an “update your system” screen
  5. Follow the CTRTransfer guide
  6. For further support, ask for help at Nintendo Homebrew on Discord
