    if you are in a lower firmware, you just have to follow that firmware tutorial part...

    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-1-(Decrypt9)
    this has info on plenty firmwares.. you just have to pick yours,
    btw which firmware is your 3ds?

    I´m on no firmware at the moment since I don´t have a 3DS. I´ll be getting one tomorrow so I thought that I should prepare.
    Am I only able to update between 4-4.5 etc? Or can I update from 4 to 9.2 etc? Because the guide doesn´t seem to do that. Thanks btw.

    Too late I´m afraid... I have already ordered an O3DS... I´m powerless if my 3DS turns out to be under 9.2 if I don´t get any of these games then... Or does it really matter that much if the system is on 8.0 etc?

    Thank you. I just have to rephrase what I wrote earlier since it was wrong. "Or does it really matter that much if the system is on 8.0 etc?"
    With that I meant: does it really matter if my 3DS is on 8.0 instead of 9.2? Can I still play non-legit CIAs etc? Seems like it turned out better with the wrong question though. Thanks! :)

    in the end of the process you will update the console to the last firmware...
    so yeah, it will not matter which firmware you started you will be end up with a modded firmware at the last version (11 for now)
    read that page even if your 3ds is not here, so you can have an idea what you will do...

    It does not matter if it comes with 8.0 or not (although 8.0 has a dummy browser IIRC) because you'll have to updates/downgrade to 9.2 regardless of your starting firmware. You'll do all the things while on 9.2 and at the end you'll update to the latest firmware (which is 11.0 atm)

    Yea if your 3ds has a browser would make it a lot easier.
