    Hi guys, i managed to get myself a 3DSXL for £59.99 it was cheap cause its an american version and it has version 4.5 on it.

    i already have a SKY3DS PLUS Card and it wont allow me to play any of my games cause it wants me to update.

    now i dont really want to do that so was wondering what i should do if i should go ahead and install CFW and if so can anyone point me to a working Tutorial that would get me able to play my games on my Sky3ds card.

    cheers guys

    Here follow this guide seeing as you want CFW

    https://3ds.guide/get-started

    Also you'll need to do a cart update to get to 9.2 or something where around that.

    Edit nevermind you don't need to cart update to install B9S and Luma

    ok so ive just done this part in the troubleshootingand have managed to get to the 3ds menu

    If your NAND is of a version between 3.0.0 and 4.5.0, do the following:
    • Ensure that you are using the latest Luma3DS version (v6.6 or higher, at the least)
    • Download this file and rename it to native.firm
    • Download this file
    • Copy native.firm and cetk to the /luma/ folder on your SD card
    • If you have Luma3DS version 7.1 or lower, rename native.firm to firmware.bin
    • Delete both of these files after updating your device
    so now that im back on my menu i see black boxes to the right and the Tutoirial now is now at :
    Finalizing Setup

    should i just kleep folloing or should i go and delete them 2 files i just put into my luma folder on the sd card?

    • Delete both of these files after updating your device

    You can delete the 2 files it told you to delete now. That should hopefully get it working.
