    Hello all,

    As the title says, ive ressurected a 3DS XL after switching some pieces with a spare one, and realised that im able to go CFW with this one. I saw many CFW in here, but im not sure were to go. Installing Fire Emblem IF so i can try that translation would be i guess my main objectif with this CFW.

    Can someone please care to help me on the subject as i do not know which CFW i should install?

    *Sorry to admin if i created topic at wrong location.

    Edit: I saw of RXtools CFW but i heard a lot of brick case. Is it safe ?

    You won't brick with any CFW if you follow a guide and don't touch anything that you are unsure of.

    (and yes you created a help topic in the tutorial section :P)

    I'd say the best cfw would probs be rxtools.
    It has an immense list of features and is definitely one of the easiest ones to install.
    All it really needs is a decent sized sd card and access to a pc.

    You won't brick be confident and read the tutorial. I bought my 3ds just to mod and had no idea how the hack worked I just knew Id modded consoles before and its lots of fun, you got this dude just believe in yourself.
