    What firmware are you on? Include the -XX at the end of the version.

    Thats what everyone keeps telling me... However, no one actually wanted to buy it and I got a lot of people saying it doesnt really matter anymore... So, since I'm confused as hell and my brother wants a hacked 3DS, I thought of hacking this one

    What 3DS games do you have?

    EDIT; Doubt you can directly upgrade via DS Flashcart

    I have Pokemon X and Tom Clancys Ghost Recon, which I think cant upgrade the console to 4.5 or higher, I think.
    I just figured maybe the flashcarts have some sort of rom someone made to do it? idk

    A better option would be to get a copy of donkey kong country returns. It shouldn't be that expensive these days. That will come with a update file for 4.x.x.

    DS flashcart is only good for installing MSET, but you need to be on 4.X for that
    (Easy to find a copy to rent too :P)
    Perfect. then you could install MSET to launch rxTools, make an EmuNand, and then use a SysUpdater to put the EmuNand on 9.2, then clone it to SysNand

    EDIT; For anyone confused on how he would launch EmuNand9, EmuNand9 can be launched from MSET :D

    I forgot how MSET works in many ways, but I do know there is a 6.X version of MSET... But I don't have a DS Flashcart to see if there's a 6.X MSET version of rxTools/EmuNand9 XD

    The OP could always use their pokemon x to update to 6.X and then test MSET?

    I feel like it would be better if OP used a DS Flashcart to see if they could install both tools to 6.1 rn
    I know a way to find out ;) (exactly what I just said... lol)
