    I allready had a n3ds and a blue sky3ds, sold them, but now i miss them...

    I'm thinking in buying a new 3ds to use with CFW.
    I've read i have to get one wich is 9.0 or 9.2, im ready to gamble.

    1 - Do i need anything besides the console, charger and a micro SD card to be able to run backups?

    2 - I know there are some functions associated with Cubic Ninja game, are they a must?

    Thank you.

    No.
    If the console is below 9.3, then no.

    you can only really plan what youre going to do once you have your 3ds and you know which firmware you have to work with until you know that there are too many variables.....just make sure it 9.2.0-20 or under and your good to go.....

    Unless you plan on paying roughly 300$ on a guaranteed unit ordering one is a horrible idea as the chances of it being on the needed firmware is almost non existent use the thread I linked and search yourself check the low income areas in your state.

    Ok, thanks a lot for the input.

    I can order the MH4 bundle for more 20€ than the normal bundle. It appears to be on the desired firmware. Maybe the download code can be sold.

    If not that, then ill hunt for the serials in retail. Thanks

    The MH4U bundle should be safe assuming it NIB and it had no more productions and you can sell the code easily for like 25 on Ebay or here.

    I literally used the thread with the list of serial numbers with their respective firmware and got a new sealed N3DS off ebay. Now I have a 9.0 N3DS. You can type in 9.0 or 9.2 n3ds in the search box, but that makes it expensive. I asked about 20 or so sellers for the serial numbers on the box and found one that way. This way, the price was more reasonable.

    Once you have it, check the tutorial in my signature. It will guide you from start to finish on a relatively convenient way. :D
