    Hello every one
    I don't have a 3ds yet, i would like to buy a new 3ds from second hand but i don't know what i need to put a cfw on it
    I mean, the console have to be below 11.3(by the way, are there any hints that cfw wilbe possible above 11.2?)
    But what else do i need? An SD card or a mico SD card? new 3ds work with both or only with one of these?
    I need a micro sd reader?
    thank you for your answers

    n3ds only supports micro SD card, it is also recommended to use 16gb or larger

    You're going to need a way to put files onto a Micro SD card (So yeah, MicroSD reader, but a phone should work).
    You can buy another SD, which is highly recommended (It's where your games are installed) but it must be a Micro.
    No hints on 11.3 Stock to CFW, but Sighax might be able to make that possible (Bootrom exploitation)

    Well, you need;
    -Any 3DS/N3DS/2DS with FW <11.3
    -An SD card/Micro SD Card (At least one with 4gb or more)
    -A PC wich can read SD cards
    -Basic reading skills (Really important, you must follow the guide mentioned below to the T, don't miss any steps, and don't forget to do a NAND backup)
    -This guide: 3ds.guide

    if your buying second hand ask them to let you "check that it works"
    then go to system setting to check the fw version.

    you do this because some stores update systems the minuet they get them.
