    Hi!
    What's the difference between CFW on Old3DS and CFW on New 3DS?
    I know some homebrews/plugins are not available on Old 3DS (you can't record your screen for example), but is it very disturbing? Which fonctions are not available for CFW on Old 3DS?


    Thank you in advance for the answers and sorry for my bad english :/

    The only functions that an old 3ds can't do with cfw are:
    No screen recording (runs off extra hardware on the new3ds)
    No plugins on games that boot high memory mode (smash, sun/moon, ect)
    No overclocking the system to run better.
    Thats about it

    And SNES injects. Only N3DS can have those.

    Between insane and insecure
    N3DS is better overall. More CFW features and better hardware.
    Old3DS isn't bad, but there's no comparing them

    If you have a o3ds with cfw and you are not interested in screen recording you can keep it since 99℅ of games run on o3ds. But if you have no 3ds and you want to buy 1 then the n3ds is better choice
