    ok so if this was already answered somewhere feel free to link me
    but im a noob at this, my 3ds is not modified in any way and it has the latest update.
    what i want to know is if i can edit a save of a game like monster hunter generations without having to do some kind custom firmware thing. can i just plug the sdcard in my pc and edit the save that way? or how would i go about it?

    You'll need Homebrew to edit saves of any kind, because saves are encrypted, and you need programs to decrypt them. Homebrew is not custom firmware (you don't need to downgrade your version to use it) and can easily be obtained on 11.0.0 via browserhax.
