    Hi guys
    I'm looking for a 3ds again (sold my day one release due to lack of games). I found one on ebay advertised as being on 9.2 firmware (best for homebrew as far as I know) but what sort of price should I expect to pay for this? Do 3ds go for more £ than usual on lower firmwares? I have 2 days to decide to go for it so would apreciate any input.
    Thanks

    The latest golden firmware is 11.3 (you have arm9 exploits on that firmware, and you can install homebrew/CFW for free).
    So no need to pay more money for a 9.2 3ds.

    Yeah, maybe 9.2 or lower would cost a little more, but that was time ago.
    As Omegadrien said, nowadays you can do on 11.3 whatever you could do on 9.2.

    If you are going to use a gateway card, then I think you will need 11.2 or lower, not sure

    Or if you are going to wait (but it can happen tomorrow or a few months from now) you will be able to do the same on 11.4

    Actually you can do it already on 11.4, but you need hardmod
