    Hi

    Can you install and setup a dstwo on 3ds without ever having to use a standard ds (ds lite, ds XL or dsi)?

    That depends on what firmware your 3DS is running and if the DS2 is pre-upgraded to match your 3DS.

    I'm talking about a new 3ds, does a new 3ds come with the 1.0.0 firmware?

    I'm not sure if it's still possible on 4.x 3ds firmware (this method is for a 3ds 2.x), but I'm pretty sure The SCDS2 team would let us know if it works or not. Just make sure you follow everything in this tutorial.
    You can download everything you need from here.

    Ask if you need help when setting up/updating your cart.


    Probably won't have 1.0, since it depends on the time it's shipped (by now, the first batches of 3ds with 1.0 firmware are probably all gone).

    Yes, as long as Team Supercard still makes updates for the DSTwo, there is nothing you can do to your 3DS to make the DSTwo unusable.

    The DSTwo can update itself without being launched, which makes it future-proof.

    Wait so you don't even have to use a 3ds or ds at all?

    You do need a ds system (any will work). It's just that you'll have to use a special method to update your DSTwo if your 3ds' firmware is too high.

    If your DSTwo works on the ds system you're using, use this method (taken from here):
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If your DSTwo doesn't work on the 3ds system (yet), use this tutorial.
