    Hell
    I highly recommend that you look into setting up luma3ds and not rxtools. You will be severely hindered in the future if you bother to use rxtools. Follow this guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/ up until part 4 step 17. This will have you setup luma 3ds, have fbi over your health and safety, and have menuhax. If you wish to, you can setup a9lh which is essentially a faster way to boot into cfw with a great amount of brick protection. Doing a9lh is something you should definitely consider though, but you should read over it before starting the process of it.

    As long as they didn't update it to newest firmware you should be fine.

    EDIT: Yeah use the other guide posted, I totally forgot the one I posted has rxtools
