    I'm currently looking into the posibility of getting a NAND hardmod for my New 3DS (regular, non XL version). Although I have searched, I haven't found a good tutorial on how to do that yet. The one here looks great and seems to be easy to use, but it is for a O3DS XL. I also remember people saying that a NAND mod on a New 3DS would be much easier to install.

    So, could anyone point me to the right direction?

    It's much easier to install NAND hardmod on N3DS/XL due to alternative CLK point on the top of the mainboard.

    Here is my works

    Looking good! And that can be used like a regular USB pendrive, correct? (I know, we actually need imager software to properly write to it)

    Not really. You have to find a compatible USB card reader that uses Realtek RTS5301 - RTS5307 controller.

    You can have a look here https://gbatemp.net/threads/n3ds-nand-backup-possible-i-hope.381506/

    And only SD card readers, don't use an USB to microUSB cable to plug the 3DS in directly through USB.
    I don't know the specifics, but something about voltage being much too high if you were to connect it directly via USB, so it is very likely to break things. You have to use a modified microSD to SD adapter in a compatible SD card reader as mentioned above.
