    Yup, just follow one of many fantastic guides to downgrade your 3DS and install CFW.

    If you want as close to stock as possible then follow the guide to the end where it installs A9LH and comes full circle back to a fully updated sysnand with cfw.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    The end result looks to any noobs like a stock console with homebrew apps installed that let you install stuffs

    if your going to use local multiplayer a lot and on menuhax, I would highly advise setting up a secondary cfw, caksfw for o3ds and reinand for n3ds. Every 3ds that I ever used that had luma on it, old and new, couldn't do multiplayer. Don't worry, both cfws will automaticly detect your emunand, so all your saves and cias will be there, and setting up secondary cfws take about 5 minutes
