    I used to be a active lurker here back when rxTools just came out and browser exploits were still a dream. Homebrew menu came out and I stopped lurking on the 3DS scene a little after CFWs came out and you could pirate and make backups of games. Can I get a recap of what has happened? I want to get back into the scene badly.

    The best CFW right now is A9LH.
    The best homebrew entrypoint right now is Soundhax and it works for all firmwares.
    You can install A9LH on any 3DS for free using the above guide aslong as you're not on Version 11.3.
    Emunand is obsolete and now everyone uses a CFW sysnand.
    With A9LH you can install any .cias, so that means games,updates,dlcs,etc
    An application called freeShop is commonly used for installing games/dlc for free, it's basically a fake eShop where everything is free.

    There's also something called Sighax which is a bootroom exploit but it hasn't released yet but if it does it will be like the best 3ds hack.

    Aww RIP emunand, thanks!
    Soundhax will work on any update, including 11.3?

    Yep. You can't get cfw if you are on 11.3, though. Just userland.

    3ds.guide has good info and step by step instructions you can more or less follow in any situation except stock 11.3 which doesn't have a public exploit yet.

    Recap of the 3DS scene up until September last year, someone else can fill you in from there.

    Big thanks to @zoogie for this concise, yet comprehensive and forever quotable post.
