    Hi @ all,

    I just bought another N3DS XL and wanted to ask 1 question to the pros here:

    I have another CFW (emunand) 3DS and have 4 swords prepared on it to transfer, but I guess with the newest developments in 3DS hacking all that isn't necessary anymore. Can I just follow the 3ds.guide to go the A9LH route simple and easy without any other stuff needed?

    best wishes!

    I don't see why not. Go for it.

    Yes, just follow the guide. No need for another 3DS. You need a cartridge though(any 3DS or DS cart would suffice)

    I have about 30 3DS games, so a cartridge will not be the problem. what is it for (just curious)?

    there is a bug on the safehax+fasthax build that the guide is currently using. You won't be able to boot to decypt9 if you dont have any cart inserted on your 3ds.

    Safehax, actually.

    e: From the issue on the github repo: "The hang is because safemode arm9 seems to try to use the game cart for something. This bug is fixable, but I need to look deeper into safemode arm9 first."
