    so ok,, I just literally put cfw on my 3ds (yes im the guy that was asking if you could do it w/ an android phone,, answer,,-yes you can),

    well I had read and read over and over again older versions of the 3ds... online manual about how to hack the 3ds and what to do, and,, it has changed. so my questions are:

    in the older guide, there isn't a godmode9, but I did install it, as it is in the newer one, the older one had decrypt9, which I have the files to install, which is better? what is the difference?

    AND I have the files to hourglass9, but I didn't install it, as it wasn't in the newer manual, I know that, that program allows me to basically rip physical copies of 3ds games onto my system, but it wasn't in the tutorial, so I did not install it, and don't know how,, also I want to know is it broken, as in did Nintendo patch it in the newest release?

    also, at the end of the tutorial, there is a point where you have to turn on your 3ds w/out the sd card in, I know that there are really 2 nand files, and both can be patched, but in the tutorial it only shows you how to do just the one. so my 3ds would not turn on w/out the sd card in it. so am I missing out??

    Just follow the guide word for word and you will be fine. I don't think you will be missing out on anything in the new guide

    the guide has recently been updated to replace Hourglass9 and Decrypt9 with SafeCTRTransfer and Godmode9 as its most recent update adds most features from those other two, making them not necessary anymore.
    As @Aletron9000 said, just follow the guide word by word and you should have no problem.

    so what you are saying is... I IN A SENSE DO HAVE HOURGLASS9!!,, well how would I use it to rip games,, I guess it doesn't matter though. one thing the guide doesn't tell you lol,, how to truly use the things you install

    also,, btw,, I deleted the 2.1.0 o3ds emulated nand,, in an earlier guide it said I could do that so I did lol 700 mb bleh you know

    Update godmode9 to latest and if you have a gamecart inserted take a look inside the Gamecart drive. Press A on the .trim.3ds go to NCSD image options then go to build CIA from file

    Once its done take a look in the gm9out folder on the root of the SDCard and there will be a cia file with a long name

    Then you can install it with FBI

    Hourglass9 is just a noob version of Decrypt9. It's not bad if you're a noob.

    You didn't install it it's just files on the sd card. If you downloaded GodMode9 yesterday you wont have to update it. If you want decrypt9 get it from github and place the decrypt9wip.bin in your luma/payloads folder on your sdcard and rename it to x_decrypt9wip.bin. Then you can launch it by holding X on boot.
    You can do the same with HourGlass9, just make sure you rename it to anybutton_hourglass9.bin

    But make sure that whenever you restore your SysNAND, you click the keep a9lh button.
