    1. You should install boot9strap+luma3ds CFW with https://3ds.guide
    2. What do you mean by "Japanese menu"? If you're referring to the 3ds' language being Japanese and want to change it to English then you might want to follow this guide after installing CFW.
    3. Yes, games installed via the Eshop and/or Freeshop install to the SD card.
    4. Everything is listed here: https://3ds.guide

    IMO that thread (Introduction to 3DS Hacking) is pretty informative, but you don't really need to read it if you just want CFW. it basically explains what happens when you install CFW.

    hi crispycola .

    i read the website that u give to me till this step below. i have problem that my 3DS is japanese . i really cant understand the japnese language at all. DO u have any japansee menu translate. i try to find at google. really hard to find. T T



    There have been reports of a wave of bans being handed out to CFW users by Nintendo. To protect yourself, please do the following steps before starting this guide:

    1. Go to System Settings, then “Internet Settings”, then “SpotPass”, then “Sending of System Information”
    2. Disable the “Sending of System Information” option
    3. Exit the System Settings
    4. Go to your Friend List (the orange Face Icon in the top row of your Home Menu)
      • If you receive an error and are kicked out of the menu, the Friend List setting is either already disabled or your console cannot connect to Nintendo’s servers (due to a ban or connection issues)
    5. Go to the Friend List settings, then “Friend Notification Settings”, then “Show friends what you’re playing”
    6. Disable the “Show friends what you’re playing” option
    7. Exit your Friend List

    Follow the Region Changing Guide (this guide) after installing CFW to change your device's region to USA or Europe.

    oh and in the meantime you can use Google Translate to translate your menu using the photo scan mode on your phone or tablet. Once you region change your 3ds will be in English.
