Ok so I know this has been asked a million times before but I needed to know what I need to get started. I see a lot of Hax and it's greatly confusing to me on what I actually need. I have System Version 9.9.0-26U and this is what it actually came with on first boot. I have not ran any applications including internet browser. I have a 32gb microsd on hand for files. My goal is to exploit and get homebrew running, back up my sysnand, install and create a emunand if possible. I read CFW is impossible but can I have a later version of the official n3ds firmware. But I don't know if I need to grab a bunch of other files first. I'm confused as to what ThemeHax and MenuHax is though. Also is homebrew channel different than homebrewlauncher? Also would I be able to play online with my friend's n3ds without me having to update, even local play would suffice, we have monster hunter 4u. He's on 10.5.0-30u If I can't run backup's that's okay but can I still run my legit games (carts;newer ones) and not have to worry about updating further?
