安裝 boot9strap (透過 Soundhax)

Red/purple/pink and white screen after running Soundhax

If your console is on system version 9.4.0, 9.5.0, or 9.6.0, you may be encountering a bug with an old version of universal-otherapp. Download the latest version from here.

If your console is not on those firmwares, it likely indicates that you already have custom firmware. 請先檢查是否已安裝自製韌體

"An error has occurred, forcing the software to close..." (white message box)

您所使用的 otherapp.bin 檔案有問題(如遺失、放錯位置或者損壞)。 下載最新版本的 universal-otherapp 並將其放在你 SD 卡的根目錄中。

"Could not play"

You have the wrong Soundhax file for your console and region, or your console is incompatible with Soundhax. In the latter case, your course of action will determine on what version your 3DS is currently on. 請加入 Discord 上的 Nintendo Homebrew 頻道尋求幫助。

Failed to mount the SD card!

Back up your data and reformat your SD card as FAT32 with the recommended tool depending on your operating system (Windows, macOS, Linux). MiniTool Partition Wizard and the HP formatting tool (HPUSBDisk) are known to cause issues with 3DS SD cards.

若仍無法正常使用,請試著使用另一張 SD 卡。

Installing boot9strap (MSET9)

Python 3 is not installed

Python is not installed on the computer you are using. Download it from the Python website, double-click the installer, and follow the prompts to install Python. Once Python is installed, try again.

Error 01: Couldn't find Nintendo 3DS folder

You are not running MSET9 from the root of the SD card, or the SD card is missing the Nintendo 3DS folder.

Remember, your SD card should look like this:

MSET9 root layout

If your SD card layout is correct, then your SD card most likely isn’t being read by your console. Re-format it (Windows, Linux, macOS), then start again from the beginning of Section I.

Error 02: Your SD is write protected

Write-protection is enabled on this SD card. If you are using a full-size SD card, ensure that the lock is flipped in the upright position. Otherwise, try ejecting and reinserting your SD card.

Error 03: Don't change console version

You inputted a different number between different runs of MSET9 (for example, you initially selected option 1 for “Old 3DS, 11.8 - 11.17” and then later selected option 2 for “New 3DS, 11.8 - 11.17”).

If this happened when trying to uninstall MSET9, the script has automatically removed MSET9 for you and you can continue to the next page. Otherwise, start again from the beginning of Section I.

Error 04: No HOME Menu Extdata.

Your SD card is not formatted properly.

Copy everything off the SD Card to your PC, re-format it (Windows, Linux, macOS), copy everything back, then start again from the beginning of Section I.

Error 05: No Mii Maker Data!

Mii Maker data was not found on the SD card. Start again from the beginning of Section I.

Error 06: You need at least 16MB free

Your SD card does not have enough space to trigger MSET9. Free up some space and try again.

At the end of this guide, you will need at least 1.3GB to make a NAND backup, so it’s best to free up at least that much.

Error 07: You don't have 1 ID0, you have (#)!

You have multiple ID0 folders. To determine the correct folder, follow these instructions:

  1. Nintendo 3DS 資料夾重新命名為 BACKUP_Nintendo 3DS
  2. Reinsert your SD card into your console
  3. Power on your console
  4. Wait for the console to generate the SD card data
    • 您先前所安裝的應用程式會暫時消失。 這是正常的,且待會就會恢復正常。
  5. Power off your console
  6. 將 SD 卡插入至電腦中
  7. 移動至 SD 卡的 Nintendo 3DS 資料夾中
  8. Write down the first few characters of the folder you see
    • This is your true ID0, which we will keep in the real Nintendo 3DS folder
  9. Delete the ID0 from the current Nintendo 3DS folder
  10. Move the true ID0 folder from the BACKUP_Nintendo 3DS folder to the Nintendo 3DS folder
  11. If it exists, move the Private folder from the BACKUP_Nintendo 3DS folder to the Nintendo 3DS folder

Once you’ve done this, continue from Section I Step 7.

Error 08: One or more files are missing or malformed!

One or more files that MSET9 needs to run is missing or corrupted. Re-download the MSET9 Release .zip and extract it to the root of your SD card, replacing all existing files, then try again.

Error 10: Database(s) malformed or missing!

This happens when no valid title database is present, usually because you never installed any titles from eShop on this SD card.

  1. If you haven’t already, press Enter to close the MSET9 script
  2. Insert the SD card into your console
  3. Power on your console
  4. Navigate to System Settings -> Data Management -> Nintendo 3DS -> Software -> Reset (visual instructions)
  5. Power off your console
  6. Insert the SD card into your computer
  7. Return to Section I Step 7
Error 12: You don't have 1 ID1, you have (#)!

This occurs when you use multiple SD cards with the same 3DS and then merge the SD card contents together. Both are “valid”, but the 3DS can only read one at a time.

You will need to determine which one contains your data. First of all, back up all of the folders, in case something goes wrong:

Backup ID1

Now, delete all but one of the folders from your SD card. Generally, you will want to delete the smallest one(s), as the one with all your data will probably have more space occupied. You can compare which folder is occupying more space by right-clicking it and clicking “Properties”:

Properties prompt

Which to delete

Your SD card should now look something like this:

Just enough ID1s

Now, put your SD card into your 3DS and turn it on. If your data is still there, you deleted the right folder and have now determined your correct ID1. If everything has disappeared, go back into the backup folder that you made earlier and try the other folder.

Red screen after reinserting SD card (Section II Step 11)

You may be missing SafeB9S.bin from the root of your SD card, or the file may be corrupted. Copy it from the MSET9 .zip, replacing any existing files.

Alternatively, your SD card may be improperly formatted or partitioned. Try reformatting your SD card: Windows, Linux, macOS (this will wipe your SD card data)

System Settings loading infinitely after reinserting the SD card

You most likely did something different from the MSET9 instructions, or selected the wrong model or version.

  1. Close the script window
  2. Execute the mset9.py script on the root of the SD card
    • Windows: Double-click mset9.bat
    • Linux: open a Terminal window, cd to the root of your SD card, then type python3 mset9.py and press Enter
    • You should see a window that says “MSET9 … SETUP by zoogie”
  3. Type the number corresponding to your console model and version, then press Enter
  4. Type 3, then press Enter
  5. Once the window says “Successfully removed MSET9!”, reinsert the SD card into your console
  6. Power on your console
  7. Return to Section II Step 1

If you continue to have this issue and are sure that you did everything correctly, it’s possible that there’s something wrong with your Mii Maker extdata. Follow these instructions to reset it:

  1. Close the script window
  2. Run the MSET9 script
    • Windows: Double-click mset9.bat
    • Linux: open a Terminal window, cd to the root of your SD card, then type python3 mset9.py and press Enter
    • You should see a window that says “MSET9 … SETUP by zoogie”
  3. Type the number corresponding to your console model and version, then press Enter
  4. Type 3, then press Enter to remove MSET9
  5. If possible, use a new SD card; otherwise, backup and reformat your existing SD card as FAT32 (Windows, Linux, macOS)
  6. Insert the formatted, blank SD card into your console
  7. Return to Section I Step 1

After finishing the MSET9 page, you should switch back to your old SD card before continuing to Finalizing Setup.

Boot issues on consoles with custom firmware

The steps detailed here generally assume that your console has a modern custom firmware setup (boot9strap + Luma3DS 8.0 or greater). 如果你的主機還在用舊版的自製韌體(例如基於 arm9loaderhax 或 menuhax 的安裝),則你應該在繼續操作前先升級自製韌體。

Power/notification light indicators

My console powers off when I try to turn it on, and/or the notification LED shows a color on boot

There is an issue with your boot.firm file. If you’re running boot9strap 1.4, your 3DS notification LED may flash a certain color. This color is used to diagnose issues involving your boot.firm file on SD card or internal memory. On older versions of boot9strap, the blue light will power off almost immediately when trying to turn on the console.

If the notification LED flashes:

  • White: Your 3DS was not able to find boot.firm on your SD card or on internal memory.
  • Magenta: Your 3DS was not able to find boot.firm on your SD card. It was able to find boot.firm on internal memory, but the file is corrupted.
  • Red: Your 3DS was able to find boot.firm on both your SD card and on internal memory, but both files are corrupted.

You can get a new boot.firm file by downloading the latest release of Luma3DS, extracting it, and placing boot.firm on the root of your SD card. If your boot.firm file is consistently being detected as corrupted, you may want to check your SD card for errors (Windows, Linux, or macOS). Also, note that the 3DS tends to have issues with files extracted using WinRAR.

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

My console gets stuck on a black screen with blue power light staying on

以下是可以嘗試的解決方法,按最省時到最耗時的順序排列。

  1. Power off your console, remove the SD card, re-insert it, then power on your console.
  2. Power off your console, eject the game cartridge if inserted, power on your console, then wait up to ten minutes. If your console boots within ten minutes, the issue has been fixed and is unlikely to reoccur
  3. 將 SD 卡上的 Nintendo 3DS 資料夾重命名為 Nintendo 3DS_BACKUP,然後試著開機。 If your console successfully boots, there is some issue within your Nintendo 3DS folder. 試著刪除 HOME 主選單的外存 (extdata):
    • 移動至 /Nintendo 3DS/<ID0>/<ID1>/extdata/00000000/
    • Delete the corresponding folder for your 3DS region:
      • 歐版: 00000098
      • 日版: 00000082
      • 美版: 0000008f
      • 大陸版: 000000A1
      • 韓版: 000000A9
      • 台灣版: 000000B1
  4. 試試看透過還原模式更新您的系統:
    • Power off your console
    • 按住「L」鍵 +「R」鍵 +「上」鍵 +「A」鍵
    • Power on your console
    • If you were successful, the console will boot to an “update your system” screen
  5. 遵循CTRTransfer中的步驟
  6. 請至 Discord 的 Nintendo Homebrew 伺服器中尋求協助。

Error message on boot

"An error has occurred: Failed to apply 1 FIRM patch(es)" or "An exception has occurred -- Current process: pm"

你主機的 Luma3DS 版本已過時。 下載最新版本的Luma3DS 並將 boot.firm 放在你 SD 卡的根目錄中,如有存在相同檔案請直接覆蓋。 請不要用 WinRAR 解壓 ZIP 檔案;目前已知使用此軟體會導致與 3DS 有關的檔案的問題。

"Unable to mount CTRNAND or load the CTRNAND FIRM. Please use an external one."

There are a number of reasons as to why this could be happening. In any case, this error can usually be fixed by following the CTRTransfer guide.

"An error has occurred. Hold down the POWER button to turn off the power..."

ARM11 異常處理器已被關閉,或主機尚未安裝自製韌體。 試著啟用 ARM11 異常處理器: + Power off your console + 按住「Select」鍵 + Power on your console, while still holding (Select) + 如果『ARM11 exception handlers disabled』已被勾選,請取消勾選

HOME Menu is missing installed applications

This could be caused by various reasons, but most likely because your SD card is not being read by the system. You can check if your SD is being read by holding SELECT on boot and checking the yellow text on the bottom screen; if it says “Booted from CTRNAND via B9S”, then your console is booting from the internal memory and not from the SD card. If this is the case, attempt the steps below, which are listed from easiest to hardest:

  1. Power off your console, remove the SD card, re-insert it, then power on your console
  2. Power off your console, remove the SD card, insert it on your computer, download the latest release of Luma3DS, extract boot.firm from the Luma3DS.zip and place it on the root of your SD card (replacing any existing file)
  3. Power off your console, remove the SD card, insert it on your computer and reformat your SD card according to your computer’s operating system: Windows, macOS, Linux (this will wipe your SD card data)
  4. Test your SD card for errors by following the guide according to your computer’s operating system: Windows, Linux, macOS. If your SD card is marked as faulty, then you will have to replace your SD card
  5. Your SD card slot may be broken. Join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord for further assistance
Blue "BOOTROM ERROR" screen

Your console is likely hard-bricked. You will need to buy an ntrboot flashcart to reinstall boot9strap in order to attempt to fix your console. This may also indicate a hardware issue that cannot be fixed. 不論如何,請加入 Discord 上的 Nintendo Homebrew 伺服器 尋求幫助。 + 也有可能是有人惡作劇,把您主機的開機畫面改成像是磚機的畫面。 Try leaving your console powered on, waiting on the blue screen, for five minutes.
