    Hi guys i think i allready know the answer but im not 100% sure so i thought i would ask here. My brother has just given me his old 3ds XL which is running firmware 7.2 but unfornatly has a faulty Cartridge slot, am i right in thinking i can still install an emunand/mset/rxtoolbox combination with out the cartridge slot or is it just worth getting rid of the console.

    i do own an original 3ds aswell allready running 4.5 and a gateway if thats any help but have yet to mess with CFW

    thanks in advance

    thank you, i gathered as much, while i seem to be able to find guides for installing rxtools and mset with a flashcard i cant seem to locate a guide on downgrading without a flashcard, can you point me in the right direction

    You can use the Gateway loader from the web browser to launch the menu and downgrade as long as the SD slot works.
