    Hello there, well I don't know much about the 3DS at all but can you play MH4 on the UK 3DS and how do you hack it?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    nintendo 3ds is region locked, a US 3ds will work with US games

    for hack, if you don't know much, you need to read a lot of things,
    to keep it simple: if your 3ds firmware is above 4.5 you can forget the hack for some months, and don't ask a ETA

    First off you need to have a 3ds Console with a firmware between the range of 4.1-4.5 ( I've read some recommended 4.5) Anything higher cannot be hacked at the moment and Yes on the current supported firmware Gateway provided 2.0B1 you can play MH4.
    Also you can read more here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-noob-paradise-ask-questions-here.359035/

    You should try to look through or use the search function before posting a thread that's been answered before.

    :blink: Looks like ya'll beat me too it :bow:

    i can help what i can

    first things first, is your 3ds firmware 4.5 or lower?
    if thr answer is no, you can stop searching, the 3ds is not "hackable" with a firmware higher than 4.5 (doesn't mean it will not be on future)

    then you need to purchase a 3DS flash cart

    there are about 3-4 cards

    the one i recommend is: gateway 3ds (site: http://gateway-3ds.com/ )

    the others are clones of gateway 3ds, they are cheaper, but sometimes cheap means you have to pay an high price, if you know what i mean....

    be aware, clones usually lose support very fast, the team responsible for them USUALLY just wants a quick way of making money and run... but i heard r4ids.cn team are pretty good at support

    the "best" clone is: r4i gold 3ds deluxe edition, (site: http://www.r4ids.cn/r4ids-e.htm )

    then there is 2 other clones which people here really don't recommend which are:

    3ds link ( site: http://www.3dslink.com/ )

    and orange 3ds, i dont know anything about this last one, i think its a fail clone...
