    Dont update fresh out of box. It will put you on 11.3. Follow 3ds.guide. Read it slowly and do every step. Good luck.

    And ONLY follow 3ds.guide! Do NOT, under ANY circumstances, go to YouTube, a LOT of videos are outdated or link to their own files, which may contain (often does) their console-specific stuff which will brick other consoles
