All right, here's the deal. I'm about to receive my New 3DS XL and I'm currently praying it comes with a fw <= 9.2. In case it does, I want to get the most out of it, modification-/freedom-wise. I already own a Sky3DS, what I am looking for is a custom firmware that allows installation of unsigned CIAs (my guess would be Pasta). On the other hand I'd really like to have a 9.5 emuNAND and I think that's only possible with a Gateway, right? In addition to that, I've read a few things about CIAs and that they could potentially brick one's device (when installed to sysNAND). As Pasta runs in sysNAND, could a certain malformed / corrupted CIA brick my system? Next question would be: to boot into emuNAND, do I absolutely need a Gateway? Or would a new 3ds <= 9.2 and a Sky3DS be enough to get the most out of my device? Sorry about the bad structure of this post. All I'm really looking for is advice from experienced users on what my options are, basically.
