I've got a 3ds at last! (really expensive where I live, it's a little worn out, but seems to work fine).I only have to get a transformer to charge it.

Anyway, this one is on system version 6.3.0-12U so I'll be using the online guide to hack it.
- 1. How much size should the SD be? Is 8GB enough, or better use a 32GB one?
- 2. After installing Luma3DS and FBI (which are covered by the guide). I only have to install the roms as .cia files? or tehre's something more I should do?
- 3. Anything to take into account while following the guide? aside of doing every step as mentioned?

-1. 32 GB Is better.
-2. After you followed the guide, you can simply install the .cia files.
-3. Nothing much, except, AFTER having finished the guide, make a nand backup once in a while.

1. the bigger the better
2. install freeshop then you can pirate "directly" from nintendo servers (no pc needed)
3. as long as you read and go along with the guide you will be good . . . if you have a problem come back to this thread and ask before you act

no backing up the sd card will do that
the nand backups are primarily for recovering your console itself if you have problems (also used as a part of the a9lh install process)

Oooh, understood. So Nand for having the internal memory backup, and then just have a copy of the sd to kleep the hack safe?
Gonna try it tomorrow if I get the transformer to 110v. If any problem arise, gonna post it here!

Guys, i'm having a problem here. Just started the guide, can't use the browser. I get a message telling me:
"To use this service, you must accept the terms in the latest version of the nintendo 3ds service user agreement", how can I skip that?

No, don't have one. I accepted everything, seems to be the 'first' browser use. I bought the 3ds used, so maybe the last owner did a reset or sth?
