    You can hack it and install a9lh as long as its not higher than 10.7 firmware or, if it is on 11.0 and you have a second already hacked 3ds, you can do a system transfer and dsiware downgrade the n3ds. I have installed a9lh on 5 n3ds systems and will be doing one more today when wifes new galaxy 3ds arrives any moment. :D

    You can also use a sky3ds+ as I believe that works on the newest firm, but I could be wrong as I do not own one.

    Above is the guide that can walk you through the process for hacking it and explains things in pretty good detail.

    If that is the case, you have 3 options; Get a sky3ds+ (just looked and it does work on newest firm) but thats pretty pricey, install or get someone to install a hardmod to the n3ds and downgrade that way, which can take sometime if you have someone do it/can ruin the system if not done properly or return it and hope you can find one on the correct firm.

    It's unlikely to be on latest firmware if your buying it new
