    Hey Guys,


    Just like the title says I got a 2DS with Firmware 6.0.0-12U and im wanting to make sure I mod this thing properly so that I can install a custom firmware, run backups/use flashcarts. I made sure not to connect to wifi yet either lol. Is there a good guide I should follow to get where I need to? Im super new to anything 3ds/2ds modding, last handheld i modded was psp O_O

    I bought a 2DS last month with that exact same FW version (6.0.0-12U), and using Plailect's guide I was up and running in about 5 hours without any problems. As long as you follow the instructions exactly you'll be fine.

    Yeah, I think most of the time doing the A9LH install was backing up nands, and my own paranoia over-analyzing the guide to make sure i didn't mess it up.

    Nothing wrong with a little paranoia when used in defense of bricking! :)
