    So as my 2DS is an old model and it is 11.4 (non-hackable for me. i do not meet the requiments) I decided to buy a cheap NEW NINTENDO 3DS XL and hoping it is on 11.3! I found one on Ebay, new on box but it is the american version. I only have PAL cards. So, should I buy this new console? The price (console+shipping) is 76.05 Euros

    11.3 is hackable, 3ds.guide can help you there. It takes you through the steps from stock to Luma 3DS, which is all 95% of the community needs, has region free functionality (as well as plenty more) on games as well as DLC.

    Oh, better make sure it is <= 11.3. If it's not though, homebrew is enough for it to at least allow you to play your games. Otherwise I'd wait it out until something new (ntrboothax for example) is released.

    If it has 11.4 and you have a supporting dsware game you can hack your 11.3 then system transfer the hacked dsware game to your 11.4 console, but all these games are removed off the eshop so your best chance is to hardmod but you can get cfw on 11.4

    If its on 11.2 then yes it allows you to go online without an update. Anything above that is your choice
