    Hi guys,

    I just bought a brand new Nintendo 2DS with comes with 9.9.0-26E :/ I was hoping to use this method (http://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/) but it seems it doesn't support my ds version yet. Right?

    Is there any alternative way to load a CFW? Or maybe downgrade it to 9.2?

    Sorry for the noob questions when I was young the only think you need to hack a GBA was a 14$ flashcart :P

    Thank you

    At the moment in time CFW is not possible on anything > 9.2

    You can use homebrew with Ninjhax for example but that's about it at the moment.

    Hmm what does the homebrew allow me to do? I guess it won't allow the loading of roms right?

    You can play user-generated games and apps and emulators (eg for gb, gbc, gba, but not DS).

    Nice, thanks.

    So with a homebrew i can run normal DS games, that will get the going for a while until a new CFW hack for 9.9 comes along :D

    So i can't downgrade the firmware to 9.2.0? Or is there a flashcart that i can buy to run 3ds games?

    homebrew will not play ds roms it can run . . . [Tutorial]The Homebrew Launcher Emulators all-in-one Noob's Guide (SNES/GB/GBC/GBA/NES)

    and no you can not downgrade your firmware
    and a lastly 80-90usd sky3ds (flashcard) will allow 3ds roms on any firmware ( don't buy one unless the new orange button revision)

    For DS games you need a DS flashcart.

    You have these options:

    1. You can play homebrew apps and few emulators (up to GBA at the moment) without spending extra, I think.
    2. You can play DS games by buying some cheap DS flashcart (R4i, etc)
    3. You can play 3DS games by buying fairly expensive 3DS flashcart (Sky3DS)

    You can try and see, it won't do any harm. However I think that flashcarts that were released in the year 2014 and before got blocked by firmware upadates that time.
     
  15. Think it was only supported up to 4.3 but don't quote me on that.

    To my knowledge there are no new 2DS (or o3DS) consoles on 9.9 so it sounds like you got a returned console that had been updated.

    Only a .cia that you can install through CFW, but it doesn't work for the AK2i, the AK2i requires a downgraded TWL_FIRM as well (which also requires CFW)

    quoting you anyway lol . . .
    . . . correct

    btw ak2i was the first ds flashcard i bought . . . i still use it in my cfw 2ds
    this is the 3rd case i have ever read and all 3 were euro consoles . . . i said it as a joke last time maybe it really is "the beginning of the end of 3ds cfw"
    nope no way to do this without cfw

    I believe the 2DS Yokai watch bundle comes with newer firmware.

    OP, I'd return that 2DS right away if I "just bought it" like you said xD
