    This is a curiosity question. i have at my disposal an old 3DS, Old old DS, a Wii and a Wii U. Using these is there anyway to get a homebrewed cfw from the wii, wii U, or the DS and get in the 3DS. Becuase i have looked and havent found anything on getting homebrew for the Old 3DS with new system Update

    On 11.4, you have three options:
    • Hardmod (requires soldering) more information
    • DSiWare (requires, among other things, a second 3DS that already has CFW) more information
    • ntrboothax (hasn't been released yet and will require a compatible DS/DSi flashcart) more information

    Can't do it for free but you can hardmod or do a dsiware transfer exploit. You can use your old 3ds with cfw to get cfw on your stock 3ds but you have to purchase a dsiware game for approximately 2 dollars. Highly recommend doing dsiwarehax or just wait for a new exploit/ntrboothax. I screwed up a hardmod but ended up fixing it after a few hours, couldn't get the soldering correct so my o3ds is still stock sadly.

    Had you clicked the URL for more information, you would have found this guide to hardmod your 3DS: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-noob-friendly-nand-dumping-2ds-3ds-3ds-xl-n3ds-n3ds-xl.414498/

    The flashcart method might be easier, but it hasn't been released yet. Among other things, it requires a compatible DS/DSi flashcart, and we don't know which flashcarts are compatible yet.

    If, after reading the guide I linked to, you're comfortable performing a hardmod, then you can do that. If you are uncomfortable performing a hardmod, then you should wait for ntrboothax to be released. Ntrboothax should be very easy to use, and if you don't own a compatible DS/DSi flashcart, you will likely be able to buy one cheaply.

    That hardmod is awesome lol. I would attempt that if i had a back up 3ds but i think i will just wait for the update. I was reading the link and it looks like i will be able to use my powersaves so thats a good thing. Thanks again for the answers!
