So yeah as the title says I am completely new to the scene here and figured I should learn some things before just diving in. I just ordered a new 3ds from gamestop that should be here monday so I have no idea what firmware is on it atm. I have the sd card for it already if that helps/enables me to get a head start on things. The only real plans I have, mod wise, for my n3ds are that I wish to enable the cpu upgrade to improve gameplay and reduce framedrops. Other than that though the only other thing I may add is a custom theme later on down the road or something. So what i'm asking for basically is what is the simplest, safest way to achieve my goal? I also assume that running any program that enables the clock speeds isn't going to affect any of the 3ds' native apps like eshop or mii stuff, correct? Thanks in advance everyone.
