I ordered my n3DS from Amazon from October 2015 and just received it recently due to a few inconveniences on my end, and it was at 9.5

This post is pretty much useless, but I want to post it anyway

Though, it would be a gamble. If you're lucky, it'll come under 11.0, if you're lucky, it'll come full stock.
Best route to take is buy at your local game store, and return it if it's over 10.7.

Honestly, your best bet is to buy it at a physical (i.e. "brick and mortar") store.

Assuming you're Stateside, the cut-off point for non-11.0 n3DS-XL units seems to be serial #QW4071* & #QW1163* and below. So QW4070 or QW1150 would be OK, but not QW4074 or QW1169.

As long as it's on 10.7 or lower, using Plailect's guide is rather simple.

A friend of mine just bought one off of Amazon and IIRC he said that it was on 10.7.
If it wasn't on 10.7, it was definitely on something exploitable.

My N3DS XL came in the mail today, ordered it last Friday iirc. Firmware version was 11.0.0-33. I could have just been unlucky I guess but good luck if you go through amazon.

There are no N3DS' left in my area. The only one I found was at Walmart with serial QW1165. Should I gamble with Amazon? There's also a refurbished LoZ edition, but I'm not sure if they updated it or not. They said that they wiped it and di whatever to it.

Do not order from Amazon. Their entire stock is likely 11.0 as of August 7. I'm not sure if there is still time, but I ordered one from Jet.com last Friday. It was fulfilled by Toys R Us and just arrived today as a #QW1161 on 10.7 fw.
