    yes.

    You can install CFW, but good luck installing games.

    There is little to no risk of a brick if you follow everything correctly.

    if you follow it word by word, there is a very small chance

    There is no chance of bricking if you follow the instructions exactly (and read all the warning)

    Hi, taking the support of this post i want to ask something.....
    (btw Im newbie on this)

    I´m following the 3ds guide and mmm and i have some things not so clear
    Do I making a nand backup? (in this part 2.1.0 ctrtransfer)
    Its possible to use 2 sd cards? (one for games copies and the other one for the backup)

    Sorry, for my bad english!

    You can take your nand backup off of your sd card after all the steps/the guide is completed.

    And no, you don't need a backup of your 2.1 nand, just your nand before the ctr transfer.

    You don't have to but it is recommended. (if I understand this right. Don't make a backup of your 2.1 firmware. Only one from your ofw in the beginning before the ctr transfer.)
    Yeah sure but you have to copy some files.
