    I recently found out about homebrew but unluckily i was late to hear about not updating to firmware 11.2. I've seen many guides on YouTube concerning paid ways to get Homebrew (NinjHax, Oothax, etc) and as a 14 year old i don't have the money required at my exposal. But after searching the internet i was able to find a CubicNinja(USA).cia file so my question is: " Is there a way to install this Cia file (or FBI) without Homebrew so i can install Ninjhax."

    PS: I don't have any of the tools necessary for a an Dsiware or NFIRM Hardmod Downgrade, I've literally researched for days HELLLLP!! I have no money and this is the only way to get to play all the games I've ever wanted to play. Ive also already seen plailect guide.

    You need a cfw to install .cia files and therefor need a hardmod or dsiware downgrade.

    Not to come off as rude but when people say hardmod or dsiware downgrade are the only two ways get a cfw they aren't recommendations they mean it those are the only two options.There's literally nothing you can do.

    Is there a way to download a Nand.img file or does it have to be straight soldered from my 3DS?

    Earth, bro-dude.
    You could sell everything to Gamestop, list things on Craigslist, trade items that are in demand, and find places that give you a discount for being a student. Maybe after that and some luck, find someone (on these forums) who would downgrade for you.

    It's not the best solution, but it's faster than soon™.

    Sorry to say but you are kind of out of luck. The only option for Cia is a CFW. On 11.2 you need to downgrade, either with a hardmod or with a DSi Downgrade that already require a second 3DS that is already hacked with A9LH.

    Another option is a Sky3DS+, it's a flashcard. I personally can't recommend it if you don't read up on it first.

    The nand backup has to be from your 3ds and can only be written with a hardmod (so soldered).

    I had my first proper job aged 13 (Macca's), and was babysitting & doing odd jobs for neighbours from age 11 so there's no reason why you can't work and earn your own money. It's even better this way because you have a clear, modest goal to aim for (~$100 for a 2DS and the DSiWare game).

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Work is scarce in America. So scarce, Donald Trump is our President-elect. He's going to fire people and shizzle.

    Sadly seriously, it's really bad out here. To be under 16 and trying to get a job is akin to slave-labor. They will treat you like garbage because you can only work X amount of hours a week, and the pay is abysmal. On top of that, you have grown adults who literally need to support their families. As an employer, I would only hire those who could stay on-board and really, really needed the money.


    Oh man, the years between January 1st, 1993 - September 10th, 2001 are like sys ver 9.2 to the now, 11.2

    Oh, that sounds pretty rough. You don't really see any adults working in Macca's here, it's all teenagers :-/ I can't imagine trying to support myself let alone a family on a wage like that. I think I started on about $8 an hour (as a 13 year old in 1999-2000, not sure what the rate is now). Poor things!!

    What about babysitting though? Nobody is going to be babysitting for a living, so you wouldn't feel too guilty about taking jobs away from an adult then.

    Wow, they payed you the big bucks. I was making $5.25 at a ski resort when I was 14 ('02), but thankfully, I had the ability to gain skills that were high in demand (cough, construction helper who did betch work, cough), plus, I'm a really good painter.

    But for a 14 year-old, in this economy, not even baby-sitting is a guaranteed easy gig, but it has turned into a career. Hell, shoveling snow isn't even as lucrative as it used to be.

    This is why 40% of the USA is on government assistance. And, the rent is too damn high.

    Ouch! Sounds tough! At least your entrepreneurial skills will be well tested (you want something - no easy-to-get jobs - have to figure out something)!
