Required Reading

This page installs an 11.15.0 CTRTransfer image to your device to recover its system software.

Note that if you have any payload files other than GodMode9.firm in the /luma/payloads/ folder on your SD card, holding Start on boot will display a “chainloader menu” where you will have to use the D-Pad Up, D-Pad Down, and A buttons to select GodMode9.firm for these instructions.

OOjs UI icon information-destructive.svg You cannot do this guide without having installed Luma3DS and boot9strap first. If you have not done so, start from this page.
OOjs UI icon information-warning.svg Performing a CTRTransfer may break extended memory mode games (Monster Hunter, Super Smash Bros, Pokemon Sun/Moon) on Old 3DS/2DS devices. If this occurs, you will need to format the device (using TinyFormat or System Settings) to fix the issue.

What You Need

  • The latest release of GodMode9 (the GodMode9 .zip file)
  • The latest release of FBI (the.3dsx file)
  • The 11.15.0 CTRTransfer image for your device and region (if your device is not from one of these regions, just pick one that matches your device model):
