    Your easiest options all include you using a game cartridge to update to a specific software version, so I suggest you get ahold of one. Here are all of your options from easiest to hardest:

    this is why I asked if he'd ever turned it on.
    a 1.0.0-0U dump of a console that is completely new would be incredible to get hands on.

    Oh. Well, then your best bet is either waiting for NTRBootHax or updating with a cartridge. Like Lacius said above

    See my post above for all of your available options. You can use this website to find a game with the desired software version (preferably 4.X or 6.X): http://www.3dsdb.com/

    Option #1 (the 4.X or 6.X MSET option), in addition to being the easiest option, is also your cheapest option. Get ahold of the game with the desired update, update, and then buy a cheap DS flashcart for less than $10.

    Excelent! I already have a chinese DS flashcart from a broken DS, so now I have to get a game! (or a Sky3DS am I right?)

    The DS flashcart needs to be compatible with 3DS system versions 4.X or 6.X. What kind of flashcart is it?

    A game would be cheaper than a SKY3DS.

    Can post a pic later, but I was using it on a non flashed new 3ds xl with 11.4.
    Sky3DS price is high but can come handy, will try both ways see how it goes.
    Thank you for your rapid and excellent help!

    If it works on an OFW 11.4 3DS, then it will certainly work on a 4.X or 6.X OFW 3DS.

    The SKY3DS is genuinely useless if you have CFW, so I don't recommend it. I don't know what your options are in the area you live in, but online, you can get a used 3DS game with the 4.X or 6.X system update for $10 or less.

    Hi, Im going to get Fire Emblem Awakening that comes with 4.4.0U, whats the update preocedure? Put the cart and update? Thats it? Or I have to all of this (which I cant understand why):

    Instructions
    1. Boot your device into recovery mode by holding (L) + (R) + (A) + (UP) while powering on
    2. If prompted, decline the update
    3. Reboot your device
    4. Put the game in your device if it is not already
    5. Attempt to launch the game
    6. Update when prompted

    That's recovery mode (which clears any predownloaded update, if any) followed by instructions for running a game for people too insecure to try :)

    If you've never connected to the internet you don't have to do all of that. It is to delete any predownloaded update.

    You can use TubeHax DNS. But there's nothing to fear from updates if you have installed B9S.
