    Okay so I am really in need of help on how to use CFW on my 3ds. I just downgraded to 9.2 firmware successfully on a old 3ds. I am wondering now how I can install CIA files and use a CFW to play games online and still access the eshop and everything. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    That depends on whether or not you have a browser, which I'm assuming you do since you downgraded.

    Part 1 also deals with booting Decrypt9, which OP hasn't done.

    Okay so I have the browser so should I enter install homebrew and then menuhax and then I should install the decrypt9WIP files to my sd card? Sorry I am so new to trying to do this, thanks for the help though guys! Very appreciated

    That's one way to do it. Since you have an old 3DS, you could also just follow this guide for Part 1 without the need for installing menuhax and using the Homebrew Launcher: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Decrypt9-(Browser)

    Okay so I homebrewed before I read your comment haha, but now for menuhax do I still hold down the left bumper or do I hold down on the d-pad to boot homebrew then?
    And so now I can just follow part 1 for the decrypt9 browser? Which url do you recommend for that?

    Also when I put the decrypt9 launcher file on, do I put it in the files9 folder that I create or just on the root of the sd card?

    Copy Launcher.dat and Decrypt9WIP.dat from the Decrypt9WIP zip to the root of your SD card

    Edit: Respectfully, you shouldn't be doing any of this if you can't follow the guide.

    Good luck. Follow the guide exactly, even if something seems trivial.

    Thanks for the help! If anything super complex comes up I'll come back to ask for help but otherwise thanks so much for the help!
    Last question, will this guide teach me how to CFW or is that what I am currently doing and what is the best cia installer for 9.2?

    The guide will set you up with the best CFW (Luma3DS), update you to 11.0 (you will still have A9LH with access to all hacks and the ability to keep your system up-to-date), and it will walk you through setting up the best CIA installer (FBI).

    Okay I am just creating a backup right now, and do I have to specifically install A9LH or is this guide putting it on also?
