    I have a friend who wants to get started with cfw on one of his old 3DSs. I have done it for o3ds 4.4 to rxtools a while ago and my 9.0 n3DS to Reinand, but I'm not sure what the situation is now for a 10.4 3ds. I'm sure I could help him through with whatever it is if someone pointed me in the right direction.

    Fortunately for your freind, a new downgrade method has been revealed somewhat recently here http://gbatemp.net/threads/noob-fri...g-your-3ds-from-10-4-10-5-10-6-to-9-2.418125/
    After that you can install rxtools.https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/
    Also don't update it to 10.6 or he will have to pay for ninjhax or oothax because menuhax and browserhax have been patched on that version, there is a workaround to get browserhax working on 10.4 though.

    You can also downgrade and install arm9loaderhax, if you so choose.

    Check this guide out. It would downgrade your 3DS to 9.2, a version which supports CFW.

    Excellent, that looks perfect. Is rxtools the right choice for CFW, does it work on latest emunand firmware to play online with?

    Yup, it does. If you're looking for a guide to rxTools, here it is.
    Also, if you plan to install arm9loaderhax, here is the guide.
