    (Don't know if this is the right place to post this, I'm sorry!)

    So hello everyone!
    I'm new to this site, but not new to some 3ds hacking!

    So my problem is:

    I have a hacked 3ds, firmware 10.7.0-32e, with homebrew menu, with browserhax, have NASA, and basically that's all I have, and all I needed to this point!

    I want to know how to play regular CIA's. I know that with my 3ds now, as its configured, i can play Legit CIA's, and that worked like a charm for me! Played Pokemon OR, played Fire Emblem and such with no problems!

    Now, from what i know, i need to downgrade my 3ds (don't know how) to be able to hack it some more, so that it can run regular CIA games!

    Can someone please help me with this problem? I looked everywhere, google, forums, all that stuff, and I found out one thing - that I'm a huge noob still! I can't quite understand all the technical stuff, and the more i read, the more i get confused! So please people! You're my only hope! :D

    I would really appreciate your help in any form!

    Thanks! :)

    Start there, and go all the way through. When done, you'll have arm9loaderhax, the ultimate 3DS hack, that runs at boot time.
    If you need any help, just ask :)

    What you want is to hack your 3DS to be able to install CIAs right? Then I recommend downgrading and installing arm9loaderhax (basically it will let you keep your ds on the latest firmware but still run Homebrew and able to install custom CIAs as well as normal ones and it will also make your 3DS region free, meaning you can play games from other regions)
    You can follow Plailect's guide, it's the best and the most complete one I've seen, and it's also updated

    Since you are still on 10.7 and not on 11 you can start from this step, aka downgrading from 9.3-10.7 to 9.2
    Just click on one of the links based on which hack you use
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Homebrew-Launcher-(Browser)
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Homebrew-Launcher-(No-Browser)

    And let me know if you need any further help, I've successfully installed arm9loaderhax in 2 New 3DS :) (one using the older method and one using the newer one)

    Hey everyone, just wanted you to know the hacking worked like a charm! :D Thanks again!
    I updated to the newest software, everything is fine!
    Just wanted to know,can i safely update games i have as CIAs? Like Smash? It says a new system update should be downloaded before the game can be updated! Is it safe? And also, are the games online ready?

    CIA files are completely safe to play online. They're also safe to update.
    However, last night 11.1 came out. I would wait a little before updating so that more people with hardmods can confirm it's safe :unsure:
    Welcome to GBATemp, by the way! Don't forget to write an introduction ;)

    I don't want to take the risk on my own system. I wish I could buy someone who knows what they're doing a few beers to do it for me!

    It's really not that difficult. I was scared at first too. Then I read the guide "cover to cover" shall we say and I was like... "Oh, that's not so bad" lol Did my o3DS XL and New 3DS XL in the same day and I plan to do my new standard "New" 3DS from Japan! =P
