    You can just use NUSD and install the updates directly from an SD or USB device using wad manager, no disc required. Of course you'll have to take proper precautions if you want to keep any hacked things you may have.

    You can use BannerBomb on 3.4. No updating necessary.

    Any 3.x firmware should be capable of using bannerbomb, so you shouldn't need to update at all. Just use bannerbomb, and install all of the homebrew you desire.
