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.

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.

    No real point since movies are 30fps
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Not a big movie buff, more of a gamer tbh. And Series X is 120hz 8k ready, but yea only 120hz 4k games out right now, but thinking of in the future.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Mostly why you never see TV manufacturers going post 60hz

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I got my Dad a firestick for Xmas and showed him those 3rd party sites on Kodi, he loves it, all he watches anymore. He said he has got 3 letters from AT&T already about pirating, but he says f them, let them shut my internet off (He wants out of his AT&T contract anyways)

    I had to find and get him an old style flip phone even without text, cause thats what he wanted. No text, no internet, only phone calls. Old, old school.
