    my dad works for nintendo.
    if you follow https://3ds.guide
    one of the very first steps is creating a nand backup.
    which can be achieved by godmod9

    Thanks a lot mingles. i read the guide since i am on a 5.1.0-9U, it's directly by installing boot9strap instead of getting Homebrew first.
    In case of problem is there a process using a backup NAND for fixing the bricks?
    sorry for my english form:D:D:D

    For GodMode9, Simply navigate your SD to the nand.bin and select it, select the Nand Image Options selection, then select Restore (Safe). Keep in mind I recommend backing up your ticket.db so that all your games show up if you downloaded some after the time of the backup.

    If the guide says to. But I don't think it's necessary if the guide doesn't explicitly say it needs a cart.

    Looks good, you'll be able to setup homebrew after installing B9S IIRC

    If you brick BEFORE a successful installation of B9S, then you need a hardmod to unbrick.

    No you don't, unless your dumping a cartridge rom you don't need a cartridge inserted.
