    ive got an OLD 3DSXL with the fw 6.0.1 or something like that.
    whats the best way to go around installing cfw's or whatever?
    do i need to downgrade it?
    do i just go with rxtools?
    does the region free exploit still work ?

    im clueless right now but im sure i can do anything that doesn't involve soldering stuff . i dont have access to that ninja game either .
    what do i need?

    Thanks

    Update to 10.3 then downgrade to 9.2 after setup rxTools create an emuNand and inject bigbluemenu over health and safety. Tutorials for all of these can be found in the CFW section.

    No need to downgrade but you might want to update to 9.0/9.2 to use menuhax autoboot.

    No point in doing that, it just adds unneccessary risk. He can load rxTools through the browser (if he has one) or mset.

    Then he can update with sysupdater. It's way safer than downgrading.

    I said some consoles don't have a browser installed, even with fw >= 2.0, but it's quite rare.

    ok i got this
    just a few last questions
    1) difference b/w emuNAND and sysNAND mode? and why would i need to address the difference while installing cia's?
    2) at what point in the process do i install 9.0/menuhax?after unlinking in section 6?

    thanks a bunch
    and just to be clear,
    the sd card that it comes along with the 3ds works fine right? and dont need any additional cartridges(needed for the homebrew launcher from what i gathered)

    Sysnand is your system OS if that makes it easier to understand and Emu(Emulated)nand is a hidden partition CFW can boot into, its a shadow copy of your Sysnand

    Correct install games/homebrew cia's to Emunand you won't need Sysnand for anything as for firmware hacks im going to assume you mean homemenuhx for 9.2. Use rxTools to update to 9.2 and use homenuhax the tutorial should have all relevant info for you.
