    Im curious if anyone knows what a new 3ds with a9lh already setup would be worth if selling it as used / what people generally pay for one.

    In my sense its worth more than a newbought n3ds due to requiring hardmods to get a9lh working on its firmwares they come with, time spent, etcs.


    thoughts?

    Not much more then a stock console as anyone can install a9lh from any firmware with nothing needed expect the 3ds and a sd card.

    New 3dses are being sold for 100 bucks now. It isn't worth that much.

    That's like saying lawn mowing services should be free. Anyone can do it. Although, yeah, using your wording, not much more, that's correct.

    Anyway, OP, a new 3DS usually costs 150, so a hacked one is only worth around 160-180. Depending on if you upgrade the cards, ect.

    I thought the only way to get a9lh on new consoles was hardmod or another already hacked console due to the firmwares they come with tldr hassle for newbies and / or paying a service to hardmod for them

    I meant it doesn't add much value to the console unless the buyer doesn't want to hack it themself

    Nope now the latest firmware can be hacked to get cfw without even downgrading (you can launch luma3ds directly from 11.2 without a9lh but its recommend you just install a9lh)

    Just follow this and you'll have a9lh if you're on 11.2.
