    Hello, I just bought a 3ds XL on Ver. 7.2.0-17U. I am hoping someone can help me get cfw on here so I can play cia and other homebrew games! Its a big difference in my days of modding the Wii, so any help and answers will be awesome!

    Thanks for the fast responses! I will look at all these asap. I do not have a Gateway card if that matters!

    It's not needed. Some guides might make use of the Gateway menu, but the cart isn't needed to access that :)

    Just one more question! Now that I have CFW on my 3ds XL, should I install the Homebrew Launcher or does it not matter?

    OK, so i am wanting to add a few emulators. Can I do this through FBI or do I need the Homebrew Channel? Sorry, i just dont want to mess anything up!

    Use FBI to install BBM (Google I cant link it) and use that for CIA installation instead. Most homebrew comes with CIA versions in the packs and run better as CIA's since the 3DS has more permissions but if there is no CIA version you can just use the homebrew launcher to run .3dsx homebrew files.
