    So, my friend just CFWed his 2DS... But he bypassed the Luma3DS ctrnand section!
    Will his 2DS brick?

    No. just means if his sd card craps out the system wont boot until a new sd card and files are gotten. or the ctrnand is set up.

    Copying Luma3DS to the CTRNAND really isn't necessary, it just provides a means of booting Luma3DS without the SD card and a slightly safer location for the boot.firm if the SD card breaks. It does not provide a method of preventing bricks, Luma3DS has different checks installed for that measure.

    ok. Gotta chat with him to do the CTRnand secton! Anyway, thanks!
    (Off-topic: Before frogminer was announced, the only way to cfw a 3ds was to "seedmine" it with a dsiware game.
    So I bought the mario vs donkey kong bundle (which contained a 3ds game and a dsiware game). And I waited 1 week to arrive. I cfwed my 3DS successfully... AND AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS A FREE METHOD SHOWS UP! 15 EUROS GONE! WHYYYYY. Things happen when I don't want them and things don't happen when I want them. THE unlucky person!)

    When you were doing the Seedminer method, Frogminer likely wasn't even being worked on :P
