Hello, I've just got an O3DS running 3.0.0, it can't access the browser nor do I have a DS flashcard. I do have another O3DS on 10.X running Ninjhax 2.5 and I have a Sky3DS. Is there anyway to install CFW on the 3.0.0 system without using a DS flashcard? They are really expensive in my country, and I haven't found anyone with one so I can't borrow. The tutorial mentions using another console to setup Ninjhax for the target one, but I couldn't find how to do it, thanks in advance.

cant you just use the sky3ds to update the ds to a higher fw like 4.5 +
I can, but if I'm not wrong game updates don't include the browser, when I'm on 4.5+ how would I proceed to install a CFW? What entry points can I use? Thanks!

I've read from some people around here that Ninjhax 2.5 doesn't need a web browser anymore.

So the way they did it was to update to 9.2 using the Sky3ds and then use Ninjhax 2.5 to boot rxTools.

You can use a Smash to update to 9.2 and then use cubic ninja to launch cfw. You don't need a browser to use http.

where'd you get this from?

OP unless what @Tony_93 said is valid, your only hope is to have a DS flashcart and a 3DS cart that would upgrade you to 4.x. once on 4.x, use MSET (DS profile exploit) to launch rxTools.

That sounds great. Do you mind explaining it further? I would: Use a game to update my console to 9.2, then use Cubic Ninja to install Ninjhax 2.5 and boot the Homebrew launcher, and from that how do I install a CFW? And if I'm not wrong, 2.5 doesn't have kernel access even if running on older FW, isn't that the case? Does Ninjhax 1 require a browser even if I have the cartridge? Sorry to bother, it's just that I don't want to mess up and lose an exploitable unit, they're getting rarer everyday.

Other users around here, even @Pingouin7 made a video to demostrate it, deleted the web browser and downloaded and installed Ninjhax 2.5 without a web browser present.

most interesting. if ninjhax works, then he could launch rxtools from there. though he'd need a 3DS cart to upgrade to 9.2 firmware first.

He has a Sky3ds, he can download a rom and update with that.

In Europe one of the Cooking Mama games has it.

In America Smash Bros Rev 1 has it.

They have a Sky3DS, so they can get a rom that has 9.2 on it and use that to update.

Technically Ninjhax 2.5 itself doesn't have access on its own but there is a separate privilege escalation exploit used to gain access to the relevant services used to run CFW.
So basically yeah, through Ninjhax 2.5 you can run stuff that requires kernel but only as long as you are on 9.2 or lower. Which you should be if you don't decide to update past that. :P

I assume your 3DS is North American region, in which case the only rom that could update you to 9.2 is one of the latter revisions of Super Smash Bros. (3dsdb says Rev02)
You're on your own as far as finding the right version of the rom goes.

This is a method I haven't personally tested so I'm not going to pretend I know all about it.

I usually recommend people to update 4.x and use a DS flashcart.

So whatever you decide to do take it with a grain of salt and don't blame people if it doesn't work.

The guy that originally posted it even had videos and stuff.

When updating, will the game warn me to which version it's trying to update? I don't want to end up updating to something >9.2, is there any version of Smash that could do it?

Sure thing, if it fails it's nobody's fault, you already helped me a lot. The DS cart really won't be an option, it would take me a lot of effort to get one. I'll try this method, at least I'll be able to confirm if it works and maybe help someone else in a similar situation.
