    Refurbished 2/3dses normally come on latest firmware.

    Well if it was refurbished, they might have and probably did update it.

    Welp going to have to return it then, if that's the case :(

    Happen to know if the Crimson red bundle is on the latest fw? I saw a thread on that topic, and someone said it should be lower than 11. Haven't seen anyone verify it so far.

    All refurbs I have bought were on that firmware (I flip them).

    I highly doubt it will be different but ebay has a good return policy.

    Yeah, if anything i just have to pay return shipping, also B&H has some back orders available late Jan for both the electric blue and crimson red for $90. I'm not sure if the latest mario kart 7 bundle is on the latest fw. I did hear rumors not to buy the yokai version though.

    The refurbished 2DS I got from Nintendo earlier this year (March or so) was on 8.1. Unfortunately, the refurbished N3DS XL Hyrule Edition I got a week ago was on 11.0, so I had to DSiWarehax it. I would assume the 2DS will probably be below 11.0, though.

    Nintendo refurbs are excellent.

    Regular ones from gamestop come with 6. firmware. I would suggest getting those if you really want a hackable firmware but referbs I don't know. I would think 9.2-11.0

    That's good to hear. Btw, what's the whole deal about dswarehax?

    In a hypothetical situation where the 2ds is on 11.0 firm, i can downgrade via dswarehax?

    I bought 3 of the refurb blue 2DS Mario Kart bundles direct from Nintendo (via their eBay store) on Black Friday. They just came in and all of them were on 11.0. I downgraded via Dsiware and installed A9LH using Steelhax as my entry point. Now to resell them...I ship worldwide if anyone is interested. :P

    Btw, the bottom one is my gf's which I used for the downgrade.

    DSiware hax isn't practical for me, since i don't have another O3ds to do the transfer. (Sold It)

    It also seems to be a pretty lengthy procedure that i don't want to mess with at this point, haha.

    I'll be preferable that the one i ordered is at 10.7 or lower. In this point in time, i'm more comfortable using OOT method.
