In this Post I’m going to guide you through installing rxtools with BigBlueMenu (you can also use DevMenu or FBI but I used BigBlueMenu). Remember: This does only work on Old3DS and not on the New3DS!!! 😛 You will need a 3DS on Firmware 4.5 for this to work atm. 🙁
But don’t worry, as long as your Firmware is 9.2 or lower you can downgrade it to 4.5.
Here is a good Downgrade Tutorial I found.
Here is what he said about the release
First of all you will need these Files:
RXTools 2.4 Pack with all the files you need
BigBlueMenu (Or DevMenu/FBI, You can find DevMenu and BigBlueMenu with a simple Google Search because not legal to link)
slot0x25keyx.bin (Also a simple Google search)
Firm.bin (In the RXTools 2.4 pack go to rxtools 2.4->release->tools. Open cdn_firm.exe. It will download a firm.bin file
Now for the installation part. Its a bit complicated but can be done 🙂
1.Backup your 3DS SD-Card to your PC.
2.Extract the GW_ULTRA_3.2.2_PUBLIC_BETA.zip and open it.
3.Open the folder and open the GW_Ultra_3.2.2(Public Beta) folder.
4.You will find a launcher.dat file in it. Copy it to the root of your 3DS SD-Card.
5.Put the SD-Card back into your 3DS and power it up.
6.Open the Browser and delete the cookies and history. After that go to go.gateway-3ds.com. When the screen begins to flicker tap the L Button. If it fails just try again and if it keeps on failing restart your 3DS and try again.
7.In the Gateway Menu go to Format Emunand (THIS WILL WIPE YOUR SD-CARD SO BE SURE THAT YOU BACKED UP EVERYTHING) When it finished go to Install NVRAM and confirm it.
8.After the Emunand creation and NVRAM installation is finished go to Classic Mode and confirm with x to boot into it. After it booted up go to settings. If it says GW3D before the FW everything is working
Now you have the basic setup. Now we are going to setup Palantine CFW and install BigBlueMenu (DevMenu/FBI)
1.Power off your 3DS and put the SD-Card in your PC. On the SD card open the folder “Nintendo 3DS” and the open the folder in there, you will have come to a folder called “extdata”. Create a new folder beside that folder called “dbs”. Open the “dbs” folder and copy import.db and title.db into it if you don’t have it.
2.Now you will need to start Multi emuNAND Creator with Admin rights and click on extract NAND.
3.After it finished click on inject RedNAND and choose the File you just extracted. When its finished you can close Multi emuNAND Creator.
4.Copy the Palantine CFW files to your SD-Card (arm11code.bin, arm9code.bin, boot.bin and launcher.dat)
5.Now go to Settings->Data Management->Nintendo 3DS Software, your 3DS should say something about data being corrupt and needs formatting, do so and after that while holding L click DS Profile in Settings->Profile->DS Profile to load the CFW.
6.It should now load Palastine CFW (Light Blue screen on the top, Don’t worry this takes some attempts, sometimes it works at first try and sometimes it works at 9th try)
7.After it booted into CFW tap on Power Button.
8.Now open the Palastine CFW folder and copy and put the DevMenu/BigBlueMenu/FBI.CIA in the folder. Rename the .cia to DevMenu_2x.cia. Open Wireless Network Watcher and find the IP of your 3DS. Now edit the run.bat file in the Palantine Folder and edit IPTOMODIFY to your 3DS IP Adress. Save it and run the run.bat. It should return a result-code of 0, if it is 1 then your likely did not hold down your left bumper button. If you fail to connect at all then you likely got you ip address wrong.
9.After this go out of the power menu and it should show a new app. Open it and it should show DevMenu/BigBlueMenu/FBI
You now finished the the setup process for a CIA installer and can now setup rxtools on Firmware 9.8 with Signatures Patched. 🙂
1.Put your SD-Card into your PC and start Multi emuNAND tool. Now click on extract NAND and after it finished click on inject emuNAND. Now copy the rxtools.dat file together with the slot0x25keyx.bin and firm.bin file to the root of your SD-Card
2.Put the SD-Card back into your 3DS
3.Start the browser, clean the cache and history and go to “launch.rxtools.net”
4.If both EmuNAND and NewKeyX is green you can now succesfully boot into rxtools
5.If it succesfully boots go to Settings->Other settings->System-Update and update your System. As of now it supports the newest Firmware 9.8. After it finished the 3DS will reboot.
6.Now again go to “launch.rxtools.net” and boot it up.
7.If it works you should now have 9.8 rxtools CFW with signatures Patched and DevMenu/BigBlueMenu/FBI installed.
I hope I helped with setting up rxtools and will keep you updated when there is a new version of installing DevMenu on it:)
