    I had my old 3ds for quite some time which has never been hacked or anything, but I am thinking about buying a new 3ds exclusively for hacking and installing cfw. I want to put all my games on it so I can take it places without having to carry a ton of cards around.

    My question is are all the new 3ds that they sell in stores, like the default red or black ones have a low enough firmware that you can downgrade it and install cfw?

    if it's 10.3 firmware or older, you can hack it. 10.4/10.5 is fairly new, so i don't think the ones in stock as of right now are updated. However, be careful you might buy a returned n3ds which someone updated to 10.5. If you were to buy a n3ds, i suggest wait until the fire emblem fates special edition comes out on the 19th. You get a limited edition 3ds and it can be hackable.
