    Oh, that sucks I need 9.2 right? So my only alternative is to disassemble this console and disassemble one with a 9.2 firmware. And swap the housings then.

    if you're that desperate for a dragon ball housing you can buy one and get a SKY3ds+ but you won't find an exploitable N3DS ever only the N3DSXL had runs from 8.1 to 9.2.

    Couldn't you just get the regular n3DS with 9.2 FW and Dragon Ball cover plates separately? Or are those cover plates only available in the bundle?

    No normal N3DS will come with 9.2 they are all 9.4 and higher.

    You sure about that? Didn't they start producing them even before 9.2? At least in Japan and Europe, that is.

    You don't want to get stuck with 8.1J though :P
    Theoretically you could get a N3DSXL and swap the CPU and NAND chips (I think they are) over to a small N3DS board, but definitely not easy work. It's been done before, though, back before the N3DS was made available in NA through the Animal Crossing bundle and we only had the XL, someone did that with an European or Japanese N3DS I don't remember which one.

    NikolaMiljevic so all New 3DS have removal faceplates, even the limited editions. I thought limited editions were not removal.

    P.S. Is the new Sky3DS + region free out of the box?

    What wrong with 8.1J? Why not update it to 9.1?

    8.1J units come with no browser, and there are no 9.0/9.1/9.2 update cartridges for Japan.
    Only option is GW through CN or OoT, and that doesn't allow you to update sysnand to 9.2

    There is a way to host the files and use NTR debugger to update via hosted files.

    Yes and that is a really non-user friendly way of doing it and easily prone to error.

    @Xenon Hacks

    Sumikko Gurashi: Omise Hajimerun Desu = 9.9
    Monster Hunter Cross = 9.9
    Zelda no Densetsu: Triforce 3-Juushi = 9.9
    Pokemon Cho Fushigi no Dungeon = 9.9
    Tobidasu! Nyanko Daisensou = 9.0, but that is an eshop game.

    So what route is the best for me. Sky3DS +? Is this region free out of the box?

    It's not too hard, speaking from experience. Then again I'm a bit more adventurous as I know how to fix a brick.

    On topic. I do not think the Sky3DS+ is region free out of box.

    This is, like, so wrong.

    Only the small N3DS's from JPN and EUR were ever exploitable, and those came with 8.1J sometimes. None of the N3DS XL ever had 8.1J.
