    I have a problem!
    Buy a new console at GameStop via internet. The console I bought was the "N3DS XL" My surprise is this, not the firmaware 9.2 if that comes natively with "FW 9.5.0-22U" I'm disappointed that he was wanted in version 9.2 for to install "PASTA CFW" there is a possibility of doing something with my console, or I'm screwed.
    Greetings from Honduras!

    It's above 9.2 so no, you can't install any CFW. You can only use homebrew by using either Ninjhax 2 or Tubehax.

    Return it and buy a new one after verifying the serial number so you know it's on a hackable version.
    If it helps, you can tell them it's unused, since the n3DS doesn't have a sealed box.

    The console is new, I'm the first to open, I guess Nintendo is launching a console version of "firmaware 9.5.0-22", that is no longer selling this with "FW 9.2", another detail to notice is that change box now has less cardboard.

    I managed to dig up a brand new OFW 9.0.0 N3DS at GameStop about a month or so ago. They're still out there, just getting hard to find.

    I can't believe OP is serious, you blindly bought a n3ds and just assumed it was going to be 9.2? News flash only the first wave of n3ds manufactured back in 2014 have 9.2 or lower.

    What was the first 6 digits of the serial number? I bet it was on the 9.4+ list to begin with

    Edit: looked at the box design and it is the 2nd gen so it wasn't updated
