holy shit, you don't need to put anything in the 3DS SD card, all the necessary files are injected into the NTRboot cart.
the limit for the files is 4mb.

after that, it's done, you don't need to unscrew your N3DS screws ever for hacks.

3DS software that was used:

GodMode9 v1.4.3 w/ autorun script, preloaded VRAM0 & built-in AESKeys
ZIP3DSFX v0.6
NTRBoot_Flasher v0.3.0
FBI
Homebrew Launcher

Sorta. Assuming you can use FTP well enough, and provided B9S doesn't get updated again... still ridiculous I spent about 3 hours hacking mine from stock to CFW in 2016, my old 3DS had Ninjhax though day one, good times for about a month.

you have to compile the files your self, but maybe someone will upload his injection file soon for everyone.

but this is not really necessary, you can hack your 3DS in less then 15 minutes without this tool.

9 hours to install emunand, and when A9LH came i was scared to do it like many people so i kept using menuhax with files that rise the success chance rate.

Followed 3ds.guide a few days ago with a stock 3DS. The proccess was pretty painless and everything looks identical to how it was before, but I've been wondering about two things that I can't find answers to;
- Can I play the Badge Arcade without risking a ban? I don't want to use those tricks to get all the badges or infinite plays btw, just to play normally.
- A few guides about dumping your cartridges with GodMode instruct you to choose the "trim" file. Does that mean that the game is incomplete or compressed in some way? Is it related to the encryption? Why wouldn't you dump the other file?

That's it for now, thanks in advance!

In so much as its safe to do anything on line yes. You only get Badge Arcade bans if you cheat.

It means the dump lacks the "padding" used to fill the empty space on the cartridge. A couple of games (notably Pokemon) save to this location when used from a cartridge. However if you're dumping it, it can be assumed you're going to use an emulator or build a CIA , and CIA versions always save to a per game file on the SD card. So there's no reason to dump an untrimmed cart except for archival purposes (you can reconstruct the padding simply by adding 0s or garbage bytes to the appropriate length so nothing is lost from a practical perspective).

I'm wanting to do this on my new 3ds.

anything I need to be concerned about. I bricked a system using the dsi transfer method a long time ago.

Do I need to worry about bans if I'm dumping my own carts or is that only pirated cias and whatnot

Some people thought there'd be a second wave but there wasn't, no one has been banned for inexplicable reasons since. So in summary ???.

what are these bans?

do they affect your already purchased games offline and do they affect other nintendo consoles (switch?)

Badge Arcade ban only happen if you cheat, and cheating was dead in this game since gateway is dead
the only way to find the real address for the count was using gateway, and with gateway dead now, you can't find the address anymore.

this is just online ban, you still can enter the eshop and buy and download all you games, you just can't play online in games like super smash and monster hunter and other games, and friend list is also banned so you can't view who is online.

It's technically still possible to cheat using the PC connection and debugger IIRC, it's just that its not even remotely worthwhile for most people.

not sure about VC games, but you can use NTR to cheat on 3DS games

it called BootNTR Selector

you have to get the cores your self, some emulators works better then retroarch in my opinion, what emulator you want to use?

use FBI titleDB and find the emulator from there, then you can download it faster.

With the latest retroarch can anybody see icons for the following emulators?

81
fuse
np2kai (nightly only)

I install them using FBI but they don't show in titles or as icons on the home screen?

edit: figured it out, they're all using the same ID ask RetroArch configuration stub so they overwrite it.

mGBA for gba
Snes9x snes
Picodrive or Genesis plus for Genesis games.

There is several emulators in FBI database you can try.
Maybe you can inject SNES games and backup the save and use the save on emulator on PC then cheat then return it to 3DS?

So, Asdolo -the great guy behind the Injectors- is beta testing a New Super Ultimate Injector. Among other things, it fixes some long-standing issues:
- Every GBA games can now save
- You can increase the volume of SNES games injected into the official VC emulator

It also adds the option to use Retroarch forwarder for lots of system, including GB/C. So you can emulate your favourite GB game with Gambatte Retroarch core.

Now things get interested here, because using Gambatte you get the option to colorize your GB game using the palette Nintendo included within the GBC
https://tcrf.net/Notes:Game_Boy_Color_Bootstrap_ROM

Asdolo also added the option to display a custom image on the bottom screen (and he fixed the audio bug and the suspended-status bug from the official RA too!)

This is what you can get!

It was a quick job using a resized version of this map. Someone more skilled than me can surely do something better. The point is, we can play the original Metroid 2 in color with a map!

Something similar can also be done with NES/Famicom games! The 3DS really is the ultimate machine for old games :)

One thing I've never really known but assume I'm correct here, does injecting games basically mean you can take any ROM for said system and 'inject' it into a known working VC game and make it play that instead? I thought each VC title had its own unique emulator made for it which is where I'm a little lost here.

It uses Retroarch, since Sega never released MD games on 3DS VC.

Wii had a tweaked emulator for every game, 3DS and Wii U use the same emulator for every game. Sometimes it's tweaked with a ini file (N64 Wii U game). The only exception are NES games: there's there's different emulator for each mapper, I believe. And of course some special chip SNES games have their ad hoc emulator.
Anyway, for GB/C and SNES games without special chip the official Nintendo emulator works most of the case.

I cannot play Metroid: Samus Returns as I'm getting prompted to upgrade to 11.4, and I'd prefer to not install CFW to not worry about bans and updating. My New 3DS is on 11.1.0-31U, and I use either Soundhax or OOT3D as my entry points. I watched this video and he was able to launch Metroid despite his older firmware:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vqQNLJUwbQ
Just like in the video, I tried the Region Free Launcher on HBL 1.1.1, and I just updated to HBL 2.0 now using Hans, and neither worked - both just froze at a red or black screen. I know Hans works, as it launches my Japanese Monster Hunter 4 game card just fine. I haven't dabbled in homebrew in quite a while, so I'm hoping I don't need to go through the entire 3ds.guide process. What am I missing that is different than the video? Thanks for any help.

At what point in the process do you see that screen?

To me that screen seems to be saying it can't find the menu file? Are you sure you've loaded on the correct files onto the SD card in the correct places?

Ensure your flashcart is able to launch .nds files on your device before beginning. Some flashcarts may require firmware or “kernel” files to be copied to the flashcart SD card. Consult your specific flashcart’s instructions for more information.

You may need to try changing the date on your 3DS back? Apparently your cart has a "time bomb" that means it stops working properly after a certain date.

If you're hacked with current versions of B9S and Luma then you're find to do a system update.

Yes, ntrboot selector.
You download the plugins for each game and put it in a folder in SD card and run the app, then run the game.
After you finish the game you must turn off the 3DS it restart it to play any other game or app.
