    I found this ad on craigslist for the grey N3DSXL. I asked the seller what the firmware was on and he said, 11.2.0-35. So far so good. He then tells me that he removed freeshop to sell it to a broader audience. Do I mod as normal? Just getting into the 3DS scene. I have been in every other scene though haha. I'm new to modding the 3DS, not new to modding. Also, do I need to mess with opening the 3DS to access the microSD card or is there a better way?

    I could be wrong but I think you can downgrade it on that firmware.

    Is the console currently on custom firmware?

    If you take out the MicroSD card, does the 3DS still turn on?

    Benefits to downgrading?

    Just do this, turn the console on, and hold select or start (dont remember) right as turning it on.

    If enters to Luma menu, you got a9lh installed on CTR nand. if no, then you are on 11.2, you need to go to 2.1 to get the OTP to install a9lh.

    So... does it enter to luma menu?

    Okay, it still booted into the system menu. Was he just full of it or?

    Do I just leave the back off of the 3DS until I'm finished modding. I've only ever modded the 2DS, no 3DS or DS.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    But I can still install it on 11.2.0-35 right?

    go into settings where it says the firmware version if it says "SYS" before the firmware version its has A9LH installed into nand already ... if that is the case then all you need to do is install everything for luma and any other payloads you may want such as decrypt9 and godmode9 and then inject the FBI program installer for CIA files into the health and safety app(FBI installs CIA .. that will never get old XD)

    I've been trying to mod it but I keep getting black screened once I get to safehax

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Okay so I successfully installed basehaxx. Can I now proceed as if I just ran safehaxx?

    One way to know if it's hacked or not is look at the firmware and if it has Sys in the firmware it's hacked.

    Turn it off, then hold select and turn it
    back on...

    If that doesn't work, hold R on bootup. Corbenik CFW uses that to boot into the menu, but I would uninstall Corbenik and use Luma or SaltFW if you're new..

    If neither works, it's probably on SaltFW.
