    Hi

    now that 10.4 is released, is it still possible to hack the new 3ds xl if it is still on 10.3 or less?

    when are they releasing it?

    also is the whole purpose of downgrade is to go to 9.2?
    then what do u do after that?

    do u install custom firmware?

    So if I buy a system with 9.2 I don't need to worry..

    Also currently all 3ds exploitable (using browser hax) including special editions? as long it is 10.3 or less.
    and do I need to update to 10.3 first?

    You maybe new, which is fair enough, yet these boards get polluted with these kind of posts a lot. A quick search on google itself or the search function here will answer a lot.

    Users don't want to keep answering these type of posts and is a waste of time when the information is already out there. I suggest studying it all first before messing around with stuff, which will only result in a hard brick, if not careful.

    Sorry man, but I have been quickly browsing this forum, and they mainly contain tutorials..

    I just want a quick answer so best to just ask...

    Reason I am asking about their release date of 10.4 is cos I heard from another forum it would be released today or yesterday..

    Also I am new to 3ds hacking scene so just want to get some quick answers...
    Yes I could try look through the forum, but is a lot of different threads and posts, not sure which would answer my question..

    No I didn't see that sticky thread..

    Sorry for posting this question in the wrong section..

    Which section should I ask my question?

    I understand that my question is very noobish but I have not been following the 3ds hacking scene at all since I don't have a 3ds console yet so I am clueless about it.

    ===
    I have done other hacking like psp, ps3, wii, ds but not 3ds.

    Please don't ask stupid question, it would have been faster if you just Google '3ds current firmware'. Also stop being fucking lazy and do your God damn research on your own. We also have a special noob thread for your questions. We have a fucking search function so use it.

    Yes I did google search but I search the wrong terms...
    So I didn't get the right info..

    There is search, but need to know the correct terms to search for, else u won't get relevant results.


    Also I just heard from another source that it was getting released on the 12/1/2016, so just want to make sure.

    Anyways thanks for not being rude unlike some other people

    Yeah, i don't know why some people get so stress about one topic.
    They prefer to lose their time bullying the OP instead help him or just ignoring him.

    But i need to agree with some reply's, you should looking better before creating a thread for "Noob Questions", but anyway.

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-noob-paradise-ask-questions-here.359035
    Ask your questions here, and i recommend you read others questions, and others tutorials before trying anything.

    With the right tools and knowing (reading tutorials) what your doing you can easily downgrade and install CFW in your 3DS, just make sure you know what you are doing first.

    And about the 10.4, don't worry, as soon it get released i'm sure someone will post something here, even if it's only someone crying that he updated the 3ds without wanting

    Hi,
    Yes you're in the wrong section, but here are some key points:
    -All the "possibilities" of hacking such as launching game backups without buying anything but the console (so no Gateway/Sky3DS linker needed) are possible with the 9.2 version.
    It's all possible through exploits that allow you to install a custom firmware and even to copy the entire OS of the 3DS to your micro SD card. Then, when you turn on your 3DS, the system is launched from the micro SD card (it's emulation so it's called emuNAND) while the original OS, still on the console, is called "sysNAND". This is a safe way to launch a modified version of the OS without risking the life of your console each time you install something a bit risky.
    -If your console is >9.2, you need to downgrade. Exploits allow installing 9.2 on consoles up to 10.3.
    At the moment 10.4 isn't out yet but it may be out very soon. It's important to know what is the last version on Nintendo's servers because in the process of downgrading, bad things can happen. If you follow all the instructions precisely you should be fine, but a mistake or bad luck can cause 2 situations: - your console is bricked (does not turn on at all, no way to repair it so best solution is to try Nintendo's warranty program), or - your console is "semi-bricked", i.e. the system can't boot up but you have access to the recovery mode by pressing A+R+L+Up(DPad) while turning on the console. In this case, the console connects to Nintendo's servers to reinstall the system. So if the last version is 10.4, no way to downgrade anymore then.
    -All editions of 3DS/N3DS <=10.3 can be downgraded.
    -I've seen some bricks from people who tried to downgrade from 9.9xxx versions. It can work, but if I were you, I'd update the console to 10.3 and then restore the system before downgrading if the 10.4 version is still not out.

    Take the time to read as much things as you can before trying anything. The life of your console depends on it ;)
