    Hello,

    I am sorry for posting this maybe it has been posted before but I searched a bit and everyone is talking about Luma and stuff and i'm a complete noob in it.

    So I am installing Boot9Strap (Is it?) with the 3DS guide, and I am afraid that when I'll downgrade my 3DS firmware to 2.1.0 (Since it is needed to hack it) some games won't work (Pokemon Sun?).

    Thank you so much and sorry again I am really bad at this.

    You should NOT be downgrading to 2.1!!!!!!

    Are you following https://3ds.guide? If not, stop what you are doing right now before you brick your console.

    You don't downgrade your system at all during the boot9strap initial process. Please re-read 3ds.guide multiple times.

    I was like helping myself with an old French video it's the only clean video I found, sometimes looking at the site you gave. But now i'm restarting everything from scratch with just the site.

    Don't forget you can change the language to French - click the signpost icon in the top right.

    I actually got no problem with english I just found that the youtuber was pretty clean because I hate low quality videos and went with it. I was lazy to be honest but now I will do it all myself since I already could install Super Mario Bros 2 but then I couldn't install the other games (Ocarina of time etc..) with FBI so I searched for Freeshop, and it comes with 3DS guide right?

    The guide doesn't tell you how to install it, but check the OP of the Noob Paradise thread because I added a mini guide to install freeShop there.
