Community freeShop releases website Official freeShop Discord server (thanks @Dionicio3) Community freeShop source code Thanks to the people on this list Latest nightly of freeShop (thanks @scj643) Update as of December 2017 (by Paul) I still can't resolve the crashing issue when pressing start. I'm not able to reproduce this in any way, even after trying to completely format my 3ds Update as of January 2018 (sup guys its Evi) Paul unexpectedly renamed his notabug account from Paul_GameDev to Paul_GD without telling anyone. I've updated the above urls to reflect the new repository URLs, but the auto updater is broken until further notice. Also removed the QR until I can be ascertained that one works again as well. Update as of January 2018 (by trainboy2019) Paul is no longer the main developer of freeShop. Evi has taken up the responsibility of maintaining freeShop and managing pull requests. This homebrew software, originally coded by TheCruel, allows you to download software you own via an encTitleKey.bin file. How to use it: 1/ Install the latest version of this software (Download link above) on your preferred CFW. 2/ Put an URL linking to the encTitleKey.bin file on the freeShop's Settings > Update > Auto-update title keys from URL. 3/ You can now use freeShop, enjoy ! FAQs and Troubleshooting FAQs Q: Why is Paul not making this thread? A: He doesn't like making threads, so he asked me. Q: Do I need a CFW for this? A: Yes. Q: Is there a 3dsx version? A: Yes, however the cia version is recommended, because the 3dsx can have features missing and bugs. Q: Why are games missing? They're on the eShop. A: It only shows games for which you have the title key (dumped to encTitleKeys.bin). And even then some games won't show because they're not cached server-side (this will eventually change). Q: Why does freeShop show DLC as installed when I don't have it? A: All DLC is lumped together with the same title id, so even partial installs will show it as installed. If you're missing DLC, just delete it and reinstall it. If eShop partially installed it, or you previously purchased some DLC through eShop on that console, you may lose the DLC freeShop installs when you revisit eShop. This is currently unavoidable. Q: Can freeShop download while sleeping? A: Yes, please read the instructions. Q: Can I download games of any region? A: Depends on your CFW. Most of them allow it, including the popular Luma3DS. Q: Is this safe? Will I get banned/sued for using this? A: Even modding your console's software/firmware runs legal risks. But like running freeShop, the risk is minimal. If you make sure to only install games you've purchased, then you remain in a safer legal grey area. And there is no way for Nintendo to know which client IP owns which games. That would requires some analytic guesswork, potentially resulting in many false-positive bans. Not likely to happen and none have been reported. Q: Why did you do a fork? A: Because I can. Because TheCruel can't, for some reasons, update it anymore. Q: Why starting a new thread? A: The original was... polluted with *what happened to TheCruel*, starting at page 300, and some users requested to open a new thread. Q: OMG, I know what happened to him, I will say it on this thread!!!! A: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo, this thread is for talking about my fork of freeShop, and the Original freeShop, not about what TheCruel did, that's how the original thread went into a complete disaster. If you want to know what happened and discuss about it, do it here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/former-g...ected-pedophile-gets-20-year-sentence.468679/ Q: How to I update to this version? A: Simply scan new QR Code with FBI Q: How to dump my encTitleKey.bin file? - First, you'll need to install and launch GodMode9: - If you followed 3ds.guide, you should already have GodMode9, simply hold the START Button and select GodMode9 if asked. - When GodMode9 is started, press the HOME Button - Select the "More..." option - Select the "Build support files" option - Press the A button - Press 2x the B button - Select the "[0:] SDCARD" option - Go to the "gm9out" folder - Hover the "encTitleKeys.bin" file - Press the Y Button - Press the B Button - Go to the "3ds" folder, "freeShop" folder, and then keys folder - Press the Y Button and then the A Button to paste your "encTitleKeys.bin" file Q: Why don't I have any friends? A: You should get out more. Q: Hello? A: No one is here Troubleshooting I keep getting "Failed to install seed" errors. You likely have a FW version < 9.6 and therefore cannot play newer games that utilize crypto seeds. You can fix this with a FW update. I keep getting "Wrong title key" errors. You're probably not using correct encrypted keys (encTitleKeys.bin). Decrypted keys will give this error. I keep getting "Failed to finalize TMD install: 0xC86044D2". The system is reporting that you don't have enough space on your SD card to install the game. If it's a DSiWare game, then it's your NAND that doesn't have the space. I keep getting "Failed to finalize content install: 0xD8E08025". There are many possible reasons for this. But one known diagnosis is a possible SD card problem. For example, a fake SD card who is reporting space available while it's actually full will often give this error. Double-check your SD card. I get error code 0xD8A08004 This happens with the installation state gets screwed up. You have to reboot the console to get rid of it. If you consistently get this, report how so the bug can be fixed. Some games icons are missing/glitched Refresh your cache via the freeShop's settings > Update > Refresh Cache button. I keep getting Ticket Error with all games I want to download Install and launch tikSweep, then reboot your console, this may fix your problem. I don't get any sound when I'm on the freeShop Please dump your DSP and launch the eShop. freeShop is crashing when I try press Start to Exit Please uninstall freeShop and delete the "SD:/3ds/data/freeShop" Folder, then reinstall the latest cia from https://notabug.org/evi/freeShop/releases freeShop keeps saying suspended when downloading certain DLCs The most likely cause is that game has unreleased DLC. You must wait until all DLC is released. My question is not listed here Ask here Thanks to the users of this fork, TheCruel did a fantastic job for this software, the code is very understandable and clean. Please feedback any feature that you want, or report any bug there. Related: [FAQ] Is freeShop legal?
