    The best guide available is https://3ds.guide/ this.
    Step by step instructions on how to mod the system.
    Emulators come later.

    Follow the guide but try to see if soundhax works. I have the same exact FW after updating using a cart(from fw 3.x). It was an old 3ds model though

    Remove everything from your SD card and start the guide over.

    Then your 3DS already has B9S or A9LH installed. Download Luma3DS 8.0 and pit the boot.firm onto your SD card. Does your 3DS boot?

    Sounds like you already installed a9lh or b9s. Try putting on each of the following to the root of your SD card, one at a time:
    • Boot.firm from Luma 7.1
    • Boot.firm from Luma 8.0
    • Arm9loaderhax.bin from Luma 7.0.5
    You can find these files at https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases (extract the 7z archives).

    One of these will make your console work. If the first one, you might like to follow the guide https://3ds.guide/updating-b9s, and if the third, https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s
    If the second, you're already up to date.

    First, if you haven't done so, make sure you do the following to minimize any risk of getting banned:
    As for your question, download and install freeShop from here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-arc13s-freeshop-fork-open-source-eshop-alternative.468436/

    You only need to copy boot.firm and the Luma folder, the rest is optional.
