    So ive got a brand new 3ds XL with Ver 4.2.0-9E and i am wondering should i upgrade to 9.2 like ive seen in many other threads or stay on this firmware and use CFW?

    Man this is the best guide that covers everything...
    But im unsure about kor console cause its one of smaller regions and dumped updates are pretty rare

    only thing i cant understand on this guide is "Homebrew Launcher through the entrypoint of your choice" was i meant to have a homebrew launcher before i started this guide?

    ive tried that browserhax multiple times and as im about to load up the launcher it gives me a black screen up top and red on bottom. I tried reformatting it and starting fresh again but it keeps doing it, any solutions or alternitives?

    You might need to get another access point. The cheapest option is probably OOThax, but you need another 3ds with homebrew access or a save dongle. But if you want a primary exploit, Cubic Ninja works great. If you want a flashcard that allows you access to all of the access points through games, get a Sky3DS.

    If you can though, keep trying to get browserhax to work. It should work eventually.

    i got it in the end, the guide is very vague btw sometimes but im slowly doing it. will i have to follow this guide upto part 5 im guessing?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    so ive gotten all steps done on page 3 now, and looks like the update worked for rednand so its fully up to date and sysnand is still on old version, slightly confused with lumia though. so can i play cia files with the current setup i have?

    Keep on going though, A9LH is very reliable and is very simple to use.
