Just to clarify, the only way to get a N3DS that's hackable now is to buy the FE fates edition?

    Which is like $300 on Amazon. I checked and that's the only one that comes with firmware 10.3. Which is downgradeable without a hard mod. Regular N3DS in stores now are most likely at 11.0 which is unhackable. I already have a o3ds and o3ds xl which both have a9lh+luma. So it's not that big a deal to me. I gotta get a PS4 slim and the Switch. So I don't have another $300 to drop for a N3DS. I was just curious.

    You can always do the DSIwarehax method if your other 3DS has A9LH, if the system comes on >11.0 :)

    <10.7 is without needing the dsiwarehax method or hardmod~

    The small Mario n3DS comes with 10.7, so you can hack it if you have an entrypoint.

    Hmm. I see. I didn't know about that all. I'm wondering what I should do. I'm used to the larger XL size. How does the screen size on the mario bundle 3ds compare to the XL size?

    You could try finding a second hand one on e-bay and ask what is the firmware to the seller...that's how I got my 10.3 one...

    I thought the Fire Emblem ones came on 11.0.

    Either way, that's completely wrong. As long as it isn't a Famicom/Galaxy/Super Mario World green edition or one that has been used, it should be exploitable.

    Any 3DS that's currently out there is "hackable"


    Unless for some reason hardmodding or DSiware downgrade doesn't exist to you.

    If you can still find one, the hyrule golds are all under 11.0

    You can still find older serial numbers at stores. I know my Walmart still has a few that are sub 9.7.

    I bought a couple of used ones off of the local pawn shop. Red with a top IPS screen for my fiancee. Came with a 9.9.

    The latest bundle I bought was the small Super Mario 3D Land one, and it came on 10.7, and I already had the tools to install a copy of OoTHax.

    Go to a store like Microcenter or something that isn't known for selling video game consoles but does indeed sell them. That's what I did less than a month ago to get my N3DS with 10.7
