So a guy is selling a "hacked" new 3ds xl but the problem is, he has no SD card on it, my question is: its possible that the system is hacked even without a SD card? If I buy a new one, i can just put it and it will work fine?

There is a way to make a CFW'd 3DS boot without an SD card inside. You should ask him if he did do that before buying it.

How? I thought the files on the sd card were what made CFW boot.

But anyway I guess you could use your own sd card and add the needed files.

I will ask it, I dont know much about the 3ds homebrew scene, this will be my first 3DS purchase actually.
Luma3DS can be either in root of SD card or in ctrNAND as boot.firm so yes by placing boot.firm in ctrNAND system can boot without an SD card in the unit

Dont forget that the boot without an SD card is only a fail safe in case you lose it. Without an SD card all you can do is play your cartridges or for example use the web browser.

If the new 3ds comes "unhacked", its possible to hack it in any version? Its really cheap that i'm kinda afraid of buying it.
