    Used to have a 3dsxl but it broke and we never replaced it. I am tempted to grab a 2dsxl but before I do I wanted to know if it's able to be modded with the CFW or are we in a wait and see cycle at the moment? If it is possible I appologies but can someone point me to a valid guide please?

    Thanks in advance!

    Between insane and insecure
    It's 100% possible hack the system using either hardmod or DSiwarehax. It will also be possible to hack using NTRBootHAX when it gets released.
    The 2DSXL is literally just a new3DS in a new shell, they didn't even bother to change the bootrom.

    Best guide available!
    Start here: https://3ds.guide/get-started-(new-3ds)
    It's for the 2ds xl also.
    You need a Hardmod or the DSIWare transfer.
    Some have done it succesfully.
    I have two 2ds xl and both running Hombrew Channel ;)
    So it worth it to buy one (or two) of them.

    It's not as good produced as the old and new 3ds XL (feels a little bit chaep and you feel the sound during play on the cover) but it has a good screen resolution and it looks good ;)

    Did you have a hacked console to hack the 2ds xl?

    So is there a way to do this without having access to any other 3dx etc?

    You need to have another hacked 3DS in order to hack the N2DSXL. There is no other way at the time of writing.

    So how exactly did you hack them without using another console? Confused here

    There was NO hacking. I only use Homebrew Channel!
    http://smealum.github.io/3ds/
    Means i can use Homebrew and Emulators.
    NO way of installing CIA files or do other tasks! (Godmode9 etc.)
    I have two 3DS XL already with B9S and can do my research with them.
    So for me there is no need to install B9S to my two new 2DS XL.
    If you want the FULL program (installing CIA's use the tools starting BEFORE the system) you need to "hack" them as mentioned before:
    Hardmod or DSIWare transfer with the greatest tutorial here:
    https://3ds.guide/

    DONT use ANY youtube tutorials because they are outdated the minute they are online and the chance of a BRICK is VERY high!
    Have a nice day ;)
