How to use the guide on a new 3ds?
You can just use that guide and download the NEW 3ds package.
NEW 3DS 8.1
In other words, he's got a Japanese N3DS with 8.1.0-0J, thus no browser, and no means of realistically running the Homebrew Launcher or *hax. You'll need to either A) upgrade to 10.7 and then proceed to downgrade to 9.2 with a game like Ocarina of Time 3D/Cubic Ninja/Smash Bros, B) upgrade to 9.3+ with a game cart (and then downgrade), or C) use the guides floating around that have you update to 9.2 via a private server, but this requires Cubic Ninja (or a Sky3DS + Cubic Ninja ROM), to my knowledge.
There's still no "easy" solution to the 8.1.0-0J problem like the O3DS has (for the O3DS you'd just run RxTools dev mode to update; on N3DS there is no such solution).
Sysupdater isn't an option either, because updating in Gateway sysNAND mode will brick.
So the guide applies to 8.1.0U and 8.1.0E,is that correct?
3DS on >4.0 with an usable browser
That's sort of right. The US and EU N3DSes never came with 8.1, so if you saw mention of 8.1 anywhere in there, it's talking about O3DS (glancing over it, 8.1 isn't specifically mentioned in there). The earliest firmware North American and Euro N3DSes came with was 9.0, so they had no problems running Gateway/CFW out of the box.
At any rate, that guide won't help you. You'll have to downgrade from a firmware higher than 9.2.
You'll need Cubic Ninja, there's no way around this I'm afraid.
Or, alternatively, if you have OoT or Smash Bros, you can update to 10.7 and then downgrade, but OoT and Smash are more troublesome as entrypoints (in OoT's case you need a DS phat/lite+flashcart, a hacked 3DS, or a powersaves/savedongle to inject the exploit savefile, and smashbroshax is just troublesome to get working) and downgrading carries some risk.
Thanks buddy,I heard Nintendo has already blocked all private servers thus I can't use the method,is that true?
There's no way they can block it on an old firmware such as 8.1.
What do you even mean by private servers? That's not even a thing. Either way, updating to 10.7 and downgrading to 9.2 with Cubic Ninja or OoT is definitely something you could do.
Yes it is. https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-upgrading-8-1-0-0j-to-9-2-0-20j.384960/
It's a really convoluted way of updating though, especially when one can update to 9.3+ and then just downgrade.
