    Heya, I want to know if there is any way to use pokebank without updating to 11.4, because my device is 11.3 and it is soundhaxxed, and i'm afraid something might go wrong and brick, please tell me if there is a way to use it without updating, or if my cfw and soundhax will stay if i were to update to 11.4.

    Do you have CFW or just homebrew access? (Did you use 3ds.guide?)

    Anyway;
    You can use ctr-httpwn afaik

    install ctr-httpwn and then you can update it without updating.
    (Open it with Homebrew wait a bit then you can go back to the Homemenu (the best method: press start in the Hb then press X and update it.)

    Ctr-httpwn is in the homebrew launcher.

    However, since you're on 11.3, I recommend hopping over to https://3ds.guide and installing full CFW if you haven't already. If you did and your device goes into luma settings when pressing select on boot, you should have no problem updating.

    If you already have CFW, you can just update to 11.4 and Luma 7.0, you should have full access to both stock and cfw/hb features.

    After going into ctr httpwn, simply reset into the home menu without rebooting and go into Pokebank. You will not be prompted to update.

    However, if you haven't already, please take the time to go to https://3ds.guide and install full CFW.

    hey, i did the first method you recommended, all my cfw stuff is still there working. But homebrew isn't working, it won't launch through the menu, or the sound program.

    If you use an O3DS, use the 11.2 otherapp payload and put it in your hblauncher folder on your sd card. The launcher icon on your home menu should then work.

    If you're using a New 3DS, the 11.4 otherapp has already been released. Download that instead and put it in your hblauncher folder.

    Umm, so yeah i tried that, and what happens is that when i click on that shortcut on the main menu launches, displays some text and after "robpin is ready" it crashes and brings me back to the home menu. BTW i have a 2ds and that counts as old3ds right?
