    I have clean japanese 3ds(no cfw) with version 9.2.0-20J.
    I saw 3ds hacks guide and realized that 11.8's method and 9.2's method are different.
    Is there any pros to no update and stick to 9.2?
    If so, I will not update to latest 11.8

    Stay on the version you're on. The 11.8 method costs money and is more time consuming. Because you're on 9.2, you can use Soundhax. It's completely free and it's easy to use.
    Just click this link to go straight to the guide.

    His JPN 3DS can get free CFW with steelminer.

    Actually, it's now free for USA /EUR / JPN! Frogminer.

    But yes, it does take a bit of work to do it. :D

    There isn't a reason to stay in firmware v9.2 anymore.
    With the neat Frogminer (that TurdPooCharger also linked above) and the only-JPN steelminer method that provides CFW for free, anyone can update to 11.8.0 with the possibility to install CFW.

    No more payin' methods to get CFW in our 3DSs. YAY!

    If you're planning on installing CFW, do it while you're on 9.2. After you install B9S and Luma3DS, there is no reason not to update.
