Installing boot9strap (super-skaterhax)

若需英語支援,請於 Discord 上的 Nintendo Homebrew 伺服器發問。

Technical Details (optional)

For technical details on the exploits that you will be using on this page, see here.


Super-skaterhax (when used to launch the Homebrew Launcher) is compatible with New models on version 11.15.0 and above in all regions.

The instructions provided only apply to the New 3DS, New 3DS XL, and New 2DS XL. Please ensure that the console you are modding is a New 3DS, New 3DS XL, or New 2DS XL before continuing.


第一節 — 準備工作

In this section, you will copy the files needed to trigger both super-skaterhax and the Homebrew Launcher.

  1. Power off your console
  2. 將 SD 卡插入至電腦中
  3. 解壓 Luma3DS .zip 內的 boot.firmboot.3dsx 到 SD 卡的根目錄底下
    • 「SD 卡的根目錄」指的是你的 SD 卡含有 Nintendo 3DS 資料夾的目錄,而非該資料夾內部
  4. Copy everything inside the folder for your console’s region and version (arm11code.bin and browserhax_hblauncher_ropbin_payload.bin) in the super-skaterhax .zip to the root of your SD card
  5. 在 SD 卡的根目錄底下建立一個新的資料夾 boot9strap
  6. 解壓 boot9strap .zipboot9strap.firmboot9strap.firm.sha 檔案至 SD 卡的 /boot9strap/ 資料夾中
  7. 將 SafeB9SInstaller .zip 中的 SafeB9SInstaller.bin 複製到 SD 卡的根目錄
  8. 在 SD 卡的根目錄底下建立一個新資料夾 3ds
    • This folder stores homebrew applications and data; it is different from the Nintendo 3DS folder that the console automatically generates
  9. Copy the nimdsphax folder from the nimdsphax .zip to the /3ds/ folder on your SD card
  10. Reinsert your SD card into your console
  11. Power on your console

Section II - super-skaterhax

In this section, you will visit the browser exploit webpage, which will launch the Homebrew Launcher.

  5. Select OK to confirm
  1. On the HOME Menu, press the Left and Right shoulder buttons at the same time to open the camera
    • If you are unable to open the camera, open the Internet Browser and manually type the URL instead ( for EUR/USA/JPN, for KOR)
  2. Tap the QR code button and scan one of the following QR codes for your console’s region here
    • If you get a security certificate warning, press (A) to allow the connection
  3. Press the (Select) button to open the bookmark tab

  4. Tap “Bookmark this page”
  5. Press (B) once to return to the browser

    • If any prompts appear, approve all of them
    • If your console freezes on a yellow screen, hold the POWER button until it turns off, then retry this section
    • If your console freezes on a red screen, hold the POWER button until it turns off, redo step 3 of Section II, then retry this section
    • If your console shows “Text” on the bottom screen, you have an Old 3DS and this exploit will not work on your device. If this is the case, you should follow MSET9 instead
    • If you get another error, try again up to 5 times, and if it still doesn’t work, follow this troubleshooting guide
  12. Your console will have booted into the Homebrew Launcher
  13. Launch nimdsphax from the list of homebrew
  14. 如果一切成功的話,您將自動進入 SafeB9SInstaller
    • If your console freezes on a red or green screen, hold the POWER button until it turns off, then retry this section
    • This may take up to five attempts

第三節 — 安裝 boot9strap

In this section, you will install custom firmware onto your console.

  1. When prompted, input the key combo given on the top screen to install boot9strap
  2. Once it is complete, press (A) to reboot your console
  3. Your console should have booted into the Luma3DS configuration menu
    • Luma3DS configuration menu are settings for the Luma3DS custom firmware. Many of these settings may be useful for customization or debugging
    • For the purpose of this guide, leave these options on the default settings (do not check or uncheck anything)
    • If your console 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. 按『Start』鍵以存檔並重新啟動系統

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.
