How-To | Replace Dead Batteries In Old GBA Cartriages

Hey guys. just wanted to make a quick tutorial on how to replace the battery in those good ol gba games as they’re becoming ancient and batterys and running dry killing time based events.

 

As usual here’s a short video tut showing what im doing followed by a quick written up step by step guid beneath.

 

Enjoy :)

 

 

 

Written part:

 

Step 1: get tools;

            – solder

            – soldering iron

            – screw driver

            – 1616 tabbed battery.

Step 2: Open cartridge with special screw driver.

Step 3: desolder old battery by gently pressing iron against solder on board and make little circles to spread and distribute heat evenly so you don’t burn the board.

Step 4: Chose your own way to solder new battery to board on cartridge. make sure pos (+) is facing down and the pos (+) tab is pointing to the solder point inwards to the board.

Step 4B: if you don’t know how to solder the battery do what i did. i made little solder balls and placed them on top of the tabs and tinned them to make it easier when i drooped them into place on the board.

Step 5: Put cartridge back together and screw back in

Step 6: Put cartridge into gba or ds and test it out

Step 7: Profit? :LiebSmilie-Headbanger-mit-Gitar

 

Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you damage your game. i have given you instructions to perform the process without damaging it. human error is always possible especially if you have low experience soldering.

Woominstaller

I kind of missed this but awhile ago shinyqquagasire made a tool that installs homebrew onto the WiiU. I haven’t found a thread for it yet, I probably should of looked harder. I had to google it in order to figure out what the hell people were talking about. 

 

https://github.com/shinyquagsire23/woominstaller

 

What I am gathering is homebrew that is in the .woomy package is installed with this tool. 

 

How to make a .woomy package the readme mentions:

 

Quote

Compiling Notes

Compilation requires makefst and WUT to be installed. The generated output is a .woomy package and a woominstaller_out folder with raw FST contents.

 

 

I haven’t used this tool at all, but it seems different. I’ll try and follow up once I figure it out.

How to | Install ntr CFW on latest firmware (NTR Selector)

Hi guys thought it had been a while since i posted a tut so here it is

 

Essentially this video will tell you how to get NTR working on the latest firmware for 3DS as the original does not seem to be getting anymore love or support anymore. 

 

So this is basically a fork of the NTR CFW but this fork is not only more refined, it also allows you to select which version of NTR you want to boot into and boots in legit a tenth of the time the original booted when it was working. tool it called NTR Selector. can be found in links down below. Please see video for guide on how to install, or if you can’t watch youtube where you are there will be a quick written tutorial at the bottom

 

 

Thanks for watching guys. hope you enjoy the video and the final product of this mod/CFW

 

LINK: 

– GBA Temp Thread

– GitHub

 

Written tut:

Step 1: make sure 3DS is on CFW

Step 2: make sure you have FBI Installed or a CIA installer of choice. this tut will use FBI

Step 3a: open this site to scan QR code for download, OR

Step 3b: alternatively open this link for a download of the latest cia file so you can copy to sd card

Step 4: if you are going to use the QR code to scan and download direct to ds with FBI please skip to step <8>

Step 5: if you are manually downloading then make sure you copy the cia to your sd card

Step 6: put sd card in 3ds and open cia installer.

Step 7: Navigate to where you placed the cia file and install with cia installer

Step 8: (skip if you manually installed) Scan the QR code to download the file and install it directly to 3ds

Step 9: go to home menu and open up the newly installed software

Step 10: wait for it to run through its updates and download and setup its environment.

Step 11: choose your cfw you would like to use

Step 12: Profit? :LiebSmilie-Headbanger-mit-Gitar

Nintendo Hacking 2016 @ 33c3

derrekr6, naehrwert and nedwiliamson give an awesome talk on the Wii U and 3DS:

 

Summary by @zapptheman on the conference for a more “simplified” summary. watch the video below

 

 

 

 

Written summary for 3DS:

 

Essentially in the simplest summary. the exploit’s found regarding the 3ds will allow CFW to be installed natively on any firmware and any 3ds as it is in a part of the system which is common in all consoles and this part is a part which Nintendo cannot modify and patch in an update thus meaning Nintendo has lost this battle once the exploit is released publicly.

Seasons Of Heaven – Nintendo Switch Exclusive

Any Arts Production have released a preview of their Exclusive game for the Switch, which will be released in 2018:

 


The game is based on a French novel by Nico Augusto, here is a quote from the books Amazon page:

Quote

 

One of America’s great authors, Louis L’Amour once said, “There will come a time when you believe that everything is finished. Yet, that will be the beginning.”

 

In Seasons of Heaven that is exactly what a small group of people who find themselves survivors of the greatest purge every known will ultimately come to realize. In their struggles to survive on a stripped and barren earth, they will learn that humans across the world literally died as a result of their own careless actions. Centuries of lying waste to the very land that sustained them was what would kill them in the end. The animals would be killed and eaten into extinction. The trees would be cut more rapidly than they were replaced. The water needed to sustain all life would be polluted until it was undrinkable, and the air would be filled with waste that would suffocate the oxygen that was vital to their survival and the survival of everything else on earth. As the survivors learn to survive in a whole new world they will have to remember that the very things that gave their fellow humans a sense of superiority and even omnipotence were what had killed them in the end.

 

Seasons of Heaven will take you from deep inside of a mystical forest at the beginning of time all the way through to the twenty-first century and the fall of civilization. It will take you on a journey with Yann, a young boy with Asperger’s syndrome and his faithful companion, Ani, a French bulldog who Yann is able to communicate with through telepathy. As you follow along on their journey you’ll have the opportunity to meet the rest of the major players and bear witness to the enlightenment of some and the demise of others. This story will allow you to experience the awe of discovering the most beautiful, magical place that ever existed while at the same time staying only one step ahead of the dark and vile underbelly of the human race.

 

Most importantly Seasons of Heaven will awaken your imagination and open your mind to possibilities you may never have considered. It will have you on the edge of your seat as you question everything you thought you knew about humanity and begin to realize that the possibility of things existing that can’t be seen with our eyes but only felt within our hearts and souls, really do exist.

[Released] Mocha CFW – CFW For The Wii U – Wii U

Mocha CFWCFW For The Wii U

View File


I posted an article earlier talking about an easy method of hacking your Wii U, with that method you can also install this awesome CFW which is created by dimok, here is some information about it:

Mocha CFW is a custom firmware that is derived from iosuhax. It offers all the features of iosuhax and some addional features without the requirement of a fw.img on the SD card. Furthermore it combines all the current features of a custom firmware such as sysNAND or redNAND with signature patches into one application with a configuration setting.

 

Mocha CFW hooks itself into the IOS launch process, right before it jumps into the bootrom, and patches the (at this point) decrypted IOS ELF in memory with new functions.

 

 

Quote

 

New Features

  • fw.img less custom firmware
  • sysNAND or redNAND patching in one application, selected/saved in a setting
  • SEEPROM redirection to/from SD card
  • OTP redirection from SD card
  • custom launch image on load of the custom firmware if exist on sd card (sd:/wiiu/apps/mocha/launch_image.tga)
