    yes, you need to update to 11.8, frogminer does not work on any other firmware

    I got as far as where it should load up the homebrew menu with the game but I get a blank black screen. It's a completely new device so there's no Luma.

    "the game"
    You talking about steel diver or flipnote studio?

    If it's steel diver, it's normal to have to wait a little at the black screen. The hax takes a bit to trigger.

    When i try to boot b9stool I just get a green screen. I've already formatted my SD card to FAT32. What else can I try?

    Edit: Nvm, I got it to work. I was missing boot.nds

    Thanks for this! I'm not particularly tech savvy, but I just got this installed on my New 2DSXL (11.8.0-41E). It was pretty straightforward. Only minor bump I ran into was during the "Finalizing Setup" stage. I thought I still had to open Homebrew via the Steel Divers game and so FBI, etc. would not launch/install. I was stumped for a few minutes until I realized my mistake. I opened Homebrew via the Download Play app and was back on track. Now to download and install some games!

    Thanks so much for your work, zoogie! I had used Soundhax/A9LH on my Old 3DS but this did the trick for my newly-acquired New 3DS. It was a bit confusing jumping between the Steelhax guide, Frogminer guide, and Plailect's Finalizing Setup, but there were no hitches at all.

    Quick question, are games still region locked after doing this? I'm on EU, can I download and install a US region file for example?

    Yes. Region free is one of the benefits of cfw.

    Okay guys, so I went through the steps and after the 10th step, I am getting this

    Warning: DONT install boot9strap multiple times!!
    Warning: Only use B9sTool with https://3ds.hacks.guide
    Warning: for firmwar 11.8.0-x ONLY

    And then it goes to the "Will BRICK if A9LH is installed!"

    Now, it has been like a year since I've done anything with my New 3DS. The only thing I ever had on my New 3DS was the Soundhax on 11.3 firmware.

    Would this be a false positive and I need to follow step (a) here? https://github.com/zoogie/b9sTool/blob/master/TROUBLESHOOTING.md

    Or do I have to go through the A9LH to B9S guide? https://3ds.hacks.guide/a9lh-to-b9s.html

    I do apologize for the noobness of these questions and if I missed it already answered elsewhere. Thanks in advance for any of the help I get.

    Hold select while powering on your 3ds, do you see a luma config screen?

    If yes, then you simply update the boot.firm to the latest luma3ds then update the console's firmware.

    It just comes up as the normal home screen. I also tried the renaming of the key.bin solution, and it didn't work for me.

    I think chat is better for this type of problem.
