(12:23pm, UK time): I'm expecting my R4i Gold 3DS Plus to arrive today, I will update this post with my experience of hacking my 2 week old 2DS XL! My card arrived. I bought from nds-card (GBATemp sponsor), I ordered on Sunday 7th Jan. and it came today, Wednesday 17th Jan (China -> UK). Images of the packaging and what it contained below. It came with the card itself, a USB card reader and also a small magnet! (Note: I switched to 'N' myself, it will come in 'D' mode) https://imgur.com/a/Q2BgG (13:06pm): Starting the hacking process following 3ds.guide: Downloaded all the files needed, put the card into 'N' mode, put card into DS, placed magnet in sweet spot (for me it was between X and A button). Held down X, select and start and it booted into SafeB9SInstaller! Basically just followed the guide exactly right to the end. I finished all the steps within about 20 minutes. I just followed 3ds.guide word for word and I had 0 issues. CFW was something I read about 2-3 weeks ago and now I've achieved it on my own 2DS XL. Thank you to the creators of 3ds.guide and the sponsor nds-card for shipping my card out so quick! Any other 'noobs' like myself should follow what I did and hopefully you will have CFW your own device.
