Hey so I am a noob to the 3DS Hacking Communiy. I have recently bought my sister a new 3ds XL with 9.2 Firmware, she later on upgraded her 3DS to 11.0 firmware. I later on bought FreakyForms Deluxe from someone on here, so I can run, and launch Homebrew on her 3DS

On topic though;
I been having concerns of 11.0 Firmware blocking most Homebrew Opurtunites like Emulation, backing up the NAND, and so on, which is still possible to run those types of hacks on a 3DS with 11.0 firmware but you would need to setup a hardmod for the 3DS in order to give it NAND Brick Protection, and for using online features on a hacked 3DS.

I have been researching through guides, and tutorials and both have concerned me since some guides may be outdated, or incorrect with methods we use to get CFW today.

You can technically use a flashcart to backup your NAND but there would be no way of recovering it through the hardmod.



So can anyone confirm this please? As well as;
- 11.0 CFW/hardmod Installment is stable (Chances of brick are rare, if not have no sign of bricks.)
- Do you need to downgrade your 3DS to 9.X in order to install a CFW "completely"
- CFW can do the following, give brick protection, playing ROM's off of a SD Card, playing emulators, make it so you can cheat online in games without getting banned, provide online functionallity for lower FW versions of a 3DS.
- CFW installment uses a Hardmod method which reads a SD Card, that SD Card can be taken into a device, where that device can plug it in to your PC/Laptop so it can read the SD Card allowing CFW to be installed.
- CFW is not necessarily needed.

I am just making sure I am doing the right thing. Becuase I don't want to screw my sister over if I brick her device. Thanks!

    But i have a medical prescription for the weed
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Still a criminal. Prescription from a doctor, which then had to be approved by the state, and they just legalized it here too for recreational use. But I can't even simply STORE it in my home
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Federally assisted housing. Still illegal to have it on property even though its medical and it's recreationally legal here.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    alright.. that sounds like a mess
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I hate conflicting and unclear laws
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Then the city just passed an ordinance no smoking weed or even using edibles in public. I dont smoke cigs. I hate them. But why are cig smokers free to smoke anywhere they want?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    If i go to a bar and want to sit outside for a few beers. There are smokers all around me chain smoking the entire time. But now with the new ordinance, i can be fined $300 if I take even a single puff of my medication.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    okay that sounds bad, but what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    are they forbidding to eat in public or what?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Cant have it in my home, cant use it anywhere on the property even in the smoking area outside, cant go in my car because thats a DUI, and now cant even walk down a back street at 3am bothering no one or you get fined. Yet people can smoke cigs all over the place.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    No thc edibles in public is what theyre saying
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    no smoking weed, no eating weed products
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ah
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    It so dumb. Small town mostly Trump Republicans. Like 3 city console members making decisions for everyone.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's what you meant
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    thanks for clarifying
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea..I'm sure
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I want to move but my mom, step dad, daughter, granddaughter, oldest brother, uncle, aunt, and several cousins are all here.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Kinda sucks to move and not know anyone. But I miss the big city.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ok so you're in prison because family needs to stick together, gotcha..I wished my family was more like that
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    as in that they'd stick *more* together instead of less
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea I think either extreme isn't good
