    Cut the guy some slack. It's all too easy to ask people to find out for themselves, but there are pages upon pages of threads (some with mulitple hundreds of pages themselves) to dig through. Most of the tutorials are quite confusing in that they assume prior knowledge, or are not regularly updated.

    There is no 10.4 yet so not to worry about that.

    The purpose of downgrading to 9.2 is because this is the latest firmware to have a known kernel mode exploit. This lets you do things such as pirate games, access more hardware resources for emulators, use a CFW etc. Newer firmwares are essentially limited to homebrew as they are 'usermode' exploits.

    Shame on you all(except those of you with normal responces), with the current hacks the search doesn't work as well as you think, all of you did nothing but make useless post whereas he only asked you simple questions.

    Thank you.

    For giving a quick overview of what is happening with the 3ds hacking..

    This answered my questions.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Thanks for the support.

    Yes, that is what happened. I look through the forum and there was just so many threads..
    Did not know where to start, or if I would understand it.

    Have not been following the 3ds hacking at, since I don't have a console, I just needed a quick overview what was happening in the scene..

    You can search, but if u don't know the correct terms you will just get bad results.

    Everyone was a noob once.
    Some ppl are just rude and forget they were once one too!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    thanks for the support.

    Yes, nobody force them to answer the question.
    They could have just ignored it, instead of being so rude and acting like smart ass.

    10.4 isn't out. So all the 3DS versions can be downgraded and hacked, and I mean all!

    Look up guides -> install browser hax -> install menu hax -> downgrade -> install browser hax -> install menu hax -> get rx tools -> pirate games

    Thanks for this overview of what to do.
    From there I can look up guides to understand what to do..

    I don't have problem with hacking consoles since I hacked my psp, ps3, wii, xbox and IOS..

    I just needed a quick overview/summary of the process..

    Here you can check the latest system version for the north american 3DS's. When I read the OP I thought it was released but then realized it wasn't. lol.

    Newbies always ask the same questions...

    The problem isn't the "smart asses" of the world. We are now in 2016... Computers are a household item in a majority of countries. To learn even the basics of searching on a forum takes a few minutes (if that).

    There are stickies, on the top of every subsection. If you can comprehend 4th grade English, maneuvering the stickies shouldn't be a problem.

    To find out if the newest firmware is released? "Nintendo 3DS Firmware" in Google... 3 seconds...

    To find out where to begin? Look at the tutorials section.. Most, if not all of the front page threads are current.

    If you can't even figure out where to ask these questions, how can you expect anyone to take you seriously?

    r/3dshacks has a sticky thread called 'All you need to know':
    https://www.reddit.com/r/3dshacks/comments/3ztqqv/all_you_need_to_know_by_popular_demand/

    Yes, I was a noob once. But the difference was I took my time and spent enough effort to read available content, also spent hours learning the methods and how things work. Sure it's faster to ask (I find myself asking specific questions), but overall it boils down to how much effort you are willing to pour into this system as I'm sure everyone knows: Downgrading is dangerous and meticulous. If you're not willing to scour the internet for readily available guides and information, you might be better off sending your system to someone else and let them do it for you.

    It's not that I didn't want to read through all the threads which has many and not sure which one is relevant to my questions..
    There is just too many threads..

    It's just more faster to ask..

    Also I heard rumour from some other forum that the 10.4 was getting released on 12/1/2016..
    So I didn't have time...

    I also have not been following the 3ds hacking scene at all since I don't have a console yet.
    And I was concern the 10.4 was releasing very soon..

    So time is of the essence..

    Asking the question directly is more efficient that me looking through all those threads and still not get an answer..

    ===

    I also don't have problems with hacking consoles since I have done it for many older consoles I have, I just wanted to get a quick overview of the status of 3ds hacking and what overall u need to do..


    I don't have an issue with searching..
    As I said I search prior to making the post..

    I just search using the wrong terms in google, which didn't give me the results I was looking for.


    It was just more quicker for me to ask my question instead of reading through all threads trying to find my answer..

    Also searching through a forum does not mean it will give relevant results to answer my questions..

    The mistake was posting in the wrong section, but I thought FAQ was where u post the questions..

    You're going to need to read them all anyway. And also, you should've realized by now that the convenience or 'efficiency' you seek is often (if not always) frowned upon in the scene or any other scene for that matter, hence the many negative posts. Too many threads? Weed them out using the search function.

    yes, I understand I will eventually will need to read it all

    but as I said I didn't believe I have time since I heard some people saying 10.4 was releasing very soon this 12/1.

    So I needed the answer quickly in case I need to buy the console quickly before the exploit gets patch.

    Weed out the threads..
    You try to weed out those threads and see if any would answer my questions that I posted...

    Look there are many ways to gather information..
    -google
    -search through forums
    -read all those threads
    -ask questions..

    In my case I needed to find the answer to my questions quickly and directly since I believed I don't have much time..

    Those ppl who posted neg posts is not my concern. If they want to be arse holes then that is up to them.
    Nobody forced them to read or respond to my thread.

    At least I still get some kinder people who are not as rude to answer my questions.
    And I got my answers.

    They're made up assumptions. We don't know yet.

    nah you can always say no to a 3ds update of which there is none. you just didnt wanna read, or even do a quick search for "noob" and "questions" to see maybe if there is a specific thread for even this.

    If you can't find any info about it, then shouldn't that be a BIG clue to you? It's just a matter of elimination. If 10.3 is 'hackable' then it is 'hackable'. That information is readily available in a quick browse. Your next questions (post #5) are all available in the forum without you needing to read ALL of the available content. You can even see some of them in the front page. I don't even know how you manage to be so smug about this. You've broken a rule, do not know how to search, too lazy to read, and coming of as a douche in the process.
