    The only way to install CFW is to either
    • Install a hardmod (Requires soldering skills or money to send it to a hardmodder)
    • DSiWareHax Transfer (Requires an already hacked 3DS)
    There is a method which requires a flashable DS flashcard and a magnet, however it has not been released yet.

    11.4 downgrades are impossible without CFW. Look above

    If you don't own an already hacked 3DS/2ds and are useless with the soldering iron, for the time being at least.

    No one has linked the guide yet :P https://3ds.guide

    Buy a cheap hackable 2DS, install CFW on it, use it to install CFW on your 2DS XL, sell the 2DS. Maybe make a profit.

    Stay away from YouTube guides.

    Between insane and insecure
    11.3 does have a kernel exploit that allows you to install a CFW. This is all part of The Guide.
    Once you have one system hacked, you can use that to preform a DSiware exploit and transfer the exploited game to the 2DSXL and hack that.
