    Oh dude! Thank you so much! I guess if I would've actually opened the item, then I'd have seen it actually says that it's not the full version and it's just the 4.1 update itself. Hopefully, this clarification will help someone else down the line. Also, thanks (and you too marazzmatik) for such a quick reply!!

    Edit: so I'm just curious, (on the msd) Once you find the folder in Nintendo 3DS with your ID0 as the name, there is another folder in that with 32char name as well, is that like ID1, lol, or what? Again, just curious if its even anything meaningful....

    Edit2: lmao, ok I found the answer to that last part myself, and of course it's in the guide :) and it is an ID1! Now i'm just wondering, what's the purpose/difference of/between the two.

    OK, new question :) I'm still at the beginning. OK so i'm on a New 3DS (I think XL, but not 100%. maybe someone could mention how to tell the difference, or i'll figure it out when i finally have to), and so i'm on version 11.8.0-41U. Anyways, In the Steelminer Section 4 - Finalizing, it says to get the otherapp payload for 11.7 if you're on 11.8. So do I want to input that as 11.7.0-41U?

    So basically, do I still want use 11.7's and do I want to just tack on the 41U or should I use something special? I forgot what the 41U represents, and i'm just trying to double check everything, and I do apologize for that. I'm just so nervous/excited/anxious to finally (possibly) get cfw on my 3ds so I can play Chrono Trigger (psp is sooooo slow when I go into the menu every few minutes), oh and Pokemon, lots of pokemon :) Thanks in advance!!

    OK so after i said to install the b9s, and confirmed, it said success and Done! And then press Home to exit, which I did. Well it booted directly into Luma3DS Config (which I assume is a good thing). I just wanted to note (and confirm this is good) that there was no powering off/on for me. It seems to have restarted on its own upon exiting and went straight into booting Luma.

    Also to note, when creating the otherapp payload I used NEW11.7.0-41U. I know this is on the Steelminer tutorial, but I just feel like it should be clarified a little. (In other words, let us know to use our current browser version.)

    Thirdly, and most importantly, I LOVE YOU GUYS and GALS ;) !!! I still have to do all the Finalizing Setup stuff, but i'm pretty sure i've gotten past the really scary stuff. I just want to say thank you SOOO much to everyone involved in this whole community and especially the people who have researched and created all the tools, pages, and tutorials that many people probably take for granted. And Zoogie, you're the shit! I mean like the real deal holyfield megabytes of nand dump type shit! :P

    Lastly, can anyone point me in the direction of a good way to play GBA games? I've been dying for a decade finish playing Golden Sun :(

    THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!!! and sorry for my long windedness (If your typing is it considered being long fingered?)....

    Yesterday I downloaded the otherapp payload for 11.8 and 11.7. And found that they are identical.

    Ok, awesome. That just makes me feel better about the whole process for everyone else. And I finally finished the whole process and everything seems to be working GREAT!! One question though, in TwiLight++, can I switch to 48khz sound, and how? I tried doing a search real quick, but I didn't see how to enable it. Again, thanks to EVERYONE for this! I'm just so glad to finally have gotten to this point lol

    Oh sry, one more question lol, do yall recommend using the FBI's TitleDB to download and install apps? (also what's FBI stand for?)

    Edit: Ok so i'm dumb, I didn't realize the Settings in TwiLight had another page :) I'm just not used to that second screen yet lol Its been a while since i've really used my 3DS. Anyways, so thats great, but now i'm wondering is there anywhere I can find out the best settings for my system (N3DSXL), like should I Run In DSi mode? Should I use the VRAM Boost? And ARM9 CPU Speed, 67mhz(NTR) or 133 mhz TWL? And next, for mGBA is there have anything to help improve speed or sounds? Or can someone point me in the right direction to ask these types of questions cuz I know i've been getting off the Frogminer subject. Thanks!

    So I got up to the part of booting into b9s but for whatever reason (probably the wrong input on my end) it failed so I went to try it again. Only now I can't boot into the homebrew launcher because steel diver just gives me a yellow screen. Unsure on how to proceed

    Unless you want to wait for a more experienced helper, i'd go back to the Steelminer Section IV - Finalizing and redo the whole save injection. Although, it probably is a simple issue like a missing boot file or something. Is this a new or old 3DS? Oh and when you told it to Install B9S, did it say SUCCESS?

    Edit: Oh and if that was successful I believe you could turn your system off and then hold Select and power it back on, if it goes into the Luma config then you should be good.

    Edit2: Oh the Frogminer guide actually says if you system boots normally then B9S didn't install correctly. Go to Step 13 at the bottom and it gives a link and says follow Point B, so check that I guess too.

    Anyways, I was just trying to give you some ideas to check on at least until someone more knowledgeable comes along. I'm sure it is something simple, I remember I got a yellow screen at some point ( I just did this yesterday) and it was something simple. So, GOOD LUCK! Btw, everything worked out great for me, i'm on a New3DSXL 11.8. Again, GL...

    So after about 6 more attempts it eventually booted into HBL and I was able to successfully boot into b9s too. Thank you for trying to help me anyway

    This actually works x)

    I am COMPLETELY new to the 3DS hacking scene yet the guide was so easy to follow. I recommend this guide to anyone new.

    If you are scared about bricking, don't be.
    But if you really don't want to do it, that's fine

    (I made a gbatemp account just to post this comment)

    Yeah, I hacked my 3DS yesterday with this guide and I think it's absolutely unbelievable how far we've come. I've wanted to get CFW for more than a year, finding a way to buy an AK2i, then this came.

    Thank you all for your amazing efforts on the 3DS hacking scene.

    Since it's been a while since I used my 3DS-XL and is currently on OFW Ver.11.6.0-39...

    Should I update my 3DS-XL to the latest OFW before trying to install Frogminer or should I just stick with 11.6.0-39 for now?

    Worked perfectly first time, I’m a total noob. Follow the guide and you’ll have no problems

    Ehehe I have a question...

    So up until now I've been using Steeldiver to launch the Homebrew Channel.
    However, now that I have CFW, I am able to launch Homebrew from the Home menu on 3ds.

    Question is, can I delete steeldiver? Will homebrew still work if I delete it?

    Yes, you can delete steel diver when you have cfw. Steelhax won't even work with luma.

    The "Finalizing Setup" section of 3ds.hacks.guide shows you how to set up cfw 3dsx homebrew.

    I successfully installed frogminer and cfw using guide. Its straight forward and it's not as complicated to do as first seems

    All went well. However I came up to one small hurdle that I managed to hop over.

    In the section that you have to replace the steeldiver save I could not find it on my memory card. So used the save back up and restore option to inject it. Not sure why I could not find it. Probably me being thick.....

    Doing it again today on my other kids 3ds so will have another look
