    As I looked in the site,I found that if you update to 11.2 for example from I lower firmware then you need an alternative method to launch the home brew launcher.Can anyone help me with that?thanks

    What you would need ideally is a cart that updates you to 9.x - and continue on from there

    no, it will jump directly to 11.3, and you will not be able to hack it in that version

    Find a cartridge that can get you to an exploitable firmware, an 11.2 one would be best.

    Some cartridges have system updates on them, but be careful to get one with a full browser, not a dummy browser.
    There are lists online about what game has what update.

    They started at 1.0.
    Also if it's really on 2.2, you should be able to skip all the steps, get OTP, and install a9lh while on 2.2. Much simpler than upgrading and downgrading and upgrading again. A LOT less brick risk.

    Yes soundhax/fasthax/safehax works on 9.0 to 11.2

    From there you'll be downgrading to 2.1 - getting the otp - installing a9lh - restoring to 9.0-11.2 - updating to 11.3

    Alternatively if you have cubic ninja - you could get otp on 2.2 - update to 9.2-11.2 - install a9lh - update to 11.3

    Look here https://3ds.guide/get-started-(old-3ds) it says that soundhax will not work if you cart update to a higher fw and that you need an alternative method to launch the homebrew launcher
