    How do you not understand the chart? It's fairly straightforward. What is your 3DS's current system firmware? Look in System Settings for that.

    i basically dont understand the explination of what he's saying..it's confusing the hell out of me for some reason

    especially the bold part

    i also dont understand what dictates for me to use the very right one the one to the left of that. i also dont understand the explination like "+ (4.X.X or 6.X.X) Cart Update thenDecrypt9 (MSET)" what does that even suppose to mean

    Wow... I can't even... First of all, what is your current firmware version?

    That bolded part means that if, for example, your system version is 3.7.0-0, the -0 means you do not have a working browser, so you would have to use the No Browser method. If your system version was 10.7.0-32, the -32 means you have a working browser so you would use the Browser method. If the number after the (-) in your system version is greater than 0, you use the Browser method.

    I'm now going to try to explain what you asked about the 4.X.X or 6.X.X cart update. The 4.X.X or 6.X.X cart update means the game cartridge needs at least a 4.X.X or 6.X.X game cartridge in order to run in your system. After you do the cart update, you then click on the Decrypt9 (MSET) link and follow those instructions.

    This is all pretty straightforward stuff if you've done any kind of reading on 3DS hacking.

    Give me a list of all of your system firmwares please and I'll point you in the right direction. I just need your system firmwares. And I mean the full system firmware, including the number after the (-).

    Are you trying to install A9LH? What are you planning on doing with these systems?
