Just purchased a 2DS on 7.2.0-12U for $40. Wanting to install CFW on it and use it but i don't know how to update it to use soundhax and i dont know how to mod it on the FW it is already on because from my research, it has no browser access. Haven't attempted it yet. Please help!

I haven't tried it yet but from what the instructions said, if your browser ver is below 25(mine is on 12 im assuming) then you have to use the no browser method.

read carefully it says

If you updated with a game cart containing the version 9.9.0 or above (meaning that you have a version on 9.9.0 or above, but your browser is on -25 or lower, such as 10.2.0-24), your browser was removed and you will need to use the “No Browser” column.

you are on
7.2.0-12U
so you dont fall into that category as you never used a game to update

Okay. Any tips? Never have really modded like this with all of these crazy steps.
Just follow the guide as written and don't do anything it doesn't say to do. If you feel you're at risk of panicking and doing something stupid, take a deep breath and ask here.

should still be fine they did not stub the browser until 9.x (when browserhax was the thing to do). . . so older updates should not include the browser blocking stub

This I'm not sure - do you have a smaller one you can use temporarily?

Computer? I don't. I can do it tomorrow at the library(possibly, no guarantee) but I'd perfer to get it done tonight if i could. Have you even heard of it before?
