§ HTTP - Request timed out

This error indicates that the request your 3DS made to download a CIA timed out, because it took too long for the server to respond. Usually, this is a network-related issue on your end (and sometimes on our end).

You can try:

  • Downloading 3hs to automatically continue downloads that were interrupted due to a spotty network connection.
  • Getting closer to your Wi-Fi router.
  • Limiting network usage on other devices or temporarily disconnecting unused devices from your network to free up bandwidth for downloads.
  • Manually downloading the content. Please refer to this page for more information.

§ HTTP - Network unavailable

Your 3DS is not connected to the internet. Connect to a network and try again.

§ FS - FAT operation denied

Your SD card is on the verge of death and has put itself into read-only mode to avoid data loss or corruption. Please back up your data and replace the card as soon as possible.

§ FS - Bus error / TWL partition invalid

Your SD card is most likely corrupted. You can check it using these guides: Windows, Linux, MacOS.

§ AM - Bad data, Cert signature or hash check failed, Invalid NCCH

In some rare cases, this can be due to Enable developer UNITINFO being enabled in the Luma3DS configuration, or using a developer kit.

Please turn this setting off and try again.

Otherwise, join our Discord server to report the issue. Make sure to include the ID or Title ID of the content.

§ AM - Not supported
