    Hey,

    I already modded some other console, now I wan't to mod my 3ds.
    My old 3ds is broken, so I'll bought a new one. Are there some thing I'll need to check if I buy a new 3ds?
    Is there a firmware limit, which cannot be modding? (like at ps3)
    I saw some modding on a 10.5 3ds on youtube, which looks real.
    I can downgrade all firmware's from 10.7 and below, do I need buy hardware for downgrading?
    What's about online gaming, system updates and game updates? Is it as easy to hide as it is with a modded ps3? (Simple version spoofers & history clearers)

    I know, many noob questions, but everyone has at some point even started. :)

    Thanks in Advance!

    If you follow that guide to the end, you'll be on a fully-updated, modded system. Nintendo can't (or doesn't) detect modded systems so online play doesn't even require anything special.

    10.5.0 (assuming it has a browser version of 20 or above) can downgrade with just the browser. 10.6.0 and 10.7.0 need an exploit game to do the downgrade. 11.0.0 can't downgrade without a hard mod (or another fully exploited 3DS that can system transfer to it with a specific DSi game with its exploit installed).

    Check on ebay, there are some 9.2 ones there. Though they are $100 more.

    No 3ds except I believe the monster hunter generations special edition has 11.0 so you will be fine

    11.0 is the slightly harder and more expensive version to hack, anything under would be a lot more better

    What he meant was, as far as he knows, all 3ds's for sale are at or below 10.7.

    I don't want to buy a new 3ds xl, only a normal 3ds xl.
    Before buying I'll ask for the firmware version.

    Browserhax does not work with 10.6 or 10.7. All the exploits it used were fixed in 10.6 and no new exploits have been found/released.

    did you miss when i quoted the browserhax install page . . . do you want/need a link to the original?
    https://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax.php
    edit also the second part of your statement is false as well there unless you were speaking in regards to browserhax only and then freekeyhax humblehax and basicsploit don't matter . . . lol

    no i dont have a video link . . . but its only two steps
    1. Go to System Settings. Then change the date to January 1, 2000 and set the time to 00:00.
    2. Use the browser go to the browsers settings and 'Initialize savedata' option, before any page gets loaded triggering the browser-version message. (you can do this with the wifi off if needed)
    edit: i was incorrect 10.7 cant but 10.6 can
