    Looking to buy a 3DX XL...what are the chances of buying one under 11.3?

    Looking at the Galaxy Style specifically (if I can even find out)...but doesn't have to be galaxy.

    Just wanted to see if there was anyway to tell by serial number etc... I know at Christmas time there is normally a list that goes around...not sure about now??

    Unless some new LE 3DS was released after the galaxy one I dont think any brand new 3DS should have anything higher than 11.2. Refurb models might come with 11.3

    Well from what I read 11.3 is now hackable using safehax anyway, so really doesn't matter what FW it's on unless they updated it yesterday to 11.4 ^_^
