    So i'm new to hacking my 3ds. I'm so confused on how to get homebrew on it and my 3DS is currently running 11.4.34U. Please help me hack it or make sense of it all.

    If it's JUST homebrew: Hope you have a N3DS XL and find a primary entry point or get someone else with homebrew to set you up a secondary entry point.

    If it's CFW you're after, read this:

    11.4 is going to require either a hardmod or a DSiWare Transfer. The first requires you spend some money on tools or a person to do it for you. Doing it yourself requires soldering skills. Having someone do it for you requires the shipping times and modding times where you will not have access to your system.

    The DSiWare method may seem less expensive at first, but you have to have a second system that's already hacked and the cheapest option I've seen for that method is an MK7 2DS for about $70 (That's how I did this method for 11.1 before safehax/soundhax). So not only will it cost about the same as getting someone else to do a hardmod, but you gotta find the 2DS near you or get it shipped and then take the time to hack it, get the DSiWare ready, then perform a system transfer and use the DSiWare to hack the new 3ds.

    So either way, you will be spending time and money. There is a 3rd option that is in development which will be cheaper, but not free and still requires you wait until the guys developing it deem it ready for public release. It will require an NDS flashcart (like an R4) which you can probably find for $15

    So I do have an old 3ds XL lying around and its running 11.0.0-26U. But I dont have an SD card for it right now. I am planning on getting a bigger one for my current 3DS and using the other one for my old one.

    Ok, so that saves you some money and time. You don't need a big SD card to hack the old one, you want the big SD card for the one you will use more often. But get both an SD card and hack the XL, then do the DSiWare Transfer method.
