    I just bought a 2ds on 6.0.0-12U can anyone help guide me through hacking it, and updating it, I have some small questions about hacking like what size sd card should I use? Im also a bit nervous and wondering if anyone can walk me through it? I was wondering if I should use a the stock 4gb card, an 8gb card or a 32gb card. since I was wondering if you store roms and everything on the card or on the console or how that works with rx tools.

    Sorry for asking stupid questions that are probably answered in other threads, but im a bit nervous.

    If you manage to screw up, even without messing with the NAND, you could send it to Nintendo, but if they find hacks of any sort (excuse me, hax) I don't think they'll do it. Just perform the 6.X MSET exploit then backup your NAND using rxTools. From here, if anything ever goes wrong, you can get a hard mod and restore your NAND back to when it was still functioning, so no need to worry. Plus, the only real way you can brick/break it is if you are, say, injecting your NAND with things from another region or something along those lines. Point is, it's not easy.

    Here's how to do it (basically)
    Also remember 2ds = 3ds IN THIS CASE YES, BUT NOT ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1.) Set up rxTools as per usual (generate the firm folder using one of the provided python scripts, drop that into the rxTools folder, and put that on the SD card. Then grab firmware.bin, slot0x25KeyX.bin, and slot0x11Key96.bin and put them on the SD card).

    2.) Go to the new exploit website (on the github page with the source near the bottom) at least once so rxTools can "Install data to your SD card".

    3A.) Have a DS mode flashcart? Then use the rxinstaller.nds in the mset folder that came with the release and select the corresponding system version.

    3B.) If not, I'll give you a push in the right direction: http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=How+to+install+mset+exploits+with+FBI
