    Hey all!

    I'm looking to buy a used 3DS and I am meeting with the person shortly. They have 2 for sale. Both the original red and blue version. I want to install CFW, so is there some firmware I should avoid? I dont really want to buy it if I cant mod lol...

    Thank you!

    Gambia, The
    You should avoid 10.4 and 10.5, because when you are on 10.3 or below,you can downgrade to 9.2.

    10.5? Any other FW should be fine AFAIK.

    Edit: And also avoid 10.4! Thanks ScarletDreamz!

    Oh yeah, forgot about this one since I've updated form 10.3 -> 10.5, totally missed that one.
