    So today I bought a new3ds xl 10.7 32, as far as I know I can downgrade and install a9lh which I think is the best cfw for the 3ds, with 10.7 I know that I don't need a hard mod, nor any games for that matter because browserhax should work, but my problem is that I have no access to the router, I looked up browserhax instructions that says I have to access the router to block the Nintendo website, but I also heard from another member here that it is optional, it's just a precautionary measure to prevent update or something, so I wonder if I can safely use browserhax without accessing the router to block nintendo site? I also heard that I can use DNS, but I have no idea how that works. Thanks

    Thanks for the reply but the 3ds guide site mentioned that I need to block the Nintendo site but like I've said I don't have access to the router so I am not sure if I can proceed without blocking the site.

    In that Bibile, it require 10.7 3DS to set up a firewall to block Nintendo at router.

    OP said that he doesn't have an access to router (Living in Dormitory or something?), So he can't do that.
    What solution I can think of is using WiFi USB Transmitter from PC, which I don't know it still exsit or not.
    It should use the same firewall as the host pc, so you can use windows firewall. But I never use it so I can't confirm.

    I guess this is all too frustrating and risky, I'll just spend some money and buy oricana of time and datel powersave, that oot3dhax method is confirmed to work with new3ds xl 10.7, correct? My goal is to be able to downgrade and install a9lh.

    OOT3DHax works, you just need Power Save to install an exploit.
