    I have a couple of other 3DS that are hacked but they are only using Menuhax. I won't be able to install al9h on this one because I wont be able to purchase anything from the e-shop. What can I do to get this Japanese XL hacked and working gloriously?

    You can install A9LH, DSiWare downgrade is not needed on 9.9.0. Follow this guide: https://plailect.github.io/Guide/

    I thought I would need to purchase a game from the e-shop or something to get al9h going? Is there anything else I would need besides a 3ds that isn't on al9h? My others are just on menuhax and luma

    There doesn't seem to be a good method for me to access the Homebrew Launcher. I used to use basehaxx long ago but I dont have a Japanese cart of Pokemon -.-

    Pokemon is region free. You can use any cart of pokemon on any 3ds.

    Try that one, and then install basehaxx or whatever other haxx you want. Menuhax is down too sooo you can't use that.

    So I just realized there is something called SMASHBROSHAX and I do indeed have an eshop copy of smash brothers on my Japanese 3DS. I went to the link which is here https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-smashhax-with-linux.397194/ and is says that I apparently need the New 3DS? Can someone help me out here? Can I use smashhax instead of basehaxx and use that other browerhaxx link to get there? I am just really confused still. Does smashbroshax still work for an xl or not?

    SmashHax is just for the New 3DS/New 3DS XL.
