    I have a 3DS v10.2.0.28E.
    There was never a custom firmware installed.
    There is no previous Hombrew Launcher or Exploits installed
    Its my first time doing that.
    Hax 2.5 has been released!
    I have IronFall

    Is there any way to install and run the Homebrew installer and exploits etc on my current version 10.2.0.28E?

    Any help is appreciated to the max.

    You have to use Cubic Ninja or OOTA to set it up.

    Thanks for replying. Cubic Ninja is not for Free. Is OOTA a game or Software? What does OOTA stands for? I somehow have problems to google it...

    Then it's useless for homebrew, it's already patched.

    Buy Cubic Ninja or Ocarina of time if you b want homebrew.

    You can buy a Sky3ds and play 3DS roms from it, then you can download a Cubic Ninja rom and use that for homebrew/emulators.

    Other than that, there is no %100 free hax right now.

    I personally don't really know because I have never used it, but I heard that you can download and inject the savefile to the cardtridge using powersaves pro.

    I am deciding to go and by either Cubic Ninja or OOT. If I do that then I am able to install firmware, am I?

    You CAN run emulators (look at the retroarch thread, but basically you can emulate GameBoy, GameBoy Advance, NES, SNES, and a lot of stuff too. The only thing is that not all those emulator will work well if you have an "old" 3DS).

    1) Keep in mind that you need a way to access the cartridge's save if you buy Ocarina of Time, which you can't "without anything". You need either an exploitable (and exploited) console, a Powersave or a Save Dongle; without that you will have no way to inject the hacked save. That's why Cubic Ninja is kinda convenient for that: you just need the game to launch the HBL, so now you can calculate which option will be cheaper for you (and, also, the fact that OOT is a great game can be a plus, where Cubic Ninja is kinda crappy :P ).

    2) No, you CAN'T install Custom Firmwares on any console running on 9.3 or newer (for now at least).

    Well, then it looks like there is no hope! Any chance I can downgrade my firmware?

    since you probably haven't backed up your nand from 9.2 no there is no way to downgrade
    by the way is your 3ds old or new

    Its the Old 3ds. If someone could give me his backup, would it work to downgrade it?

    re read your question, sounds too good to be true isn't it?
