    Hi

    Bit of a silly question really but I have to ask.

    I have an first release 3Ds running on the original version 1 firmware dose it have any value as a collectable?

    It's not really that valuable, but being on a firmware that low would let you dump the console's OTP easily using the game Cubic Ninja, so you could then proceed to install A9LH, which is a cold boot solution that also provides brick protection.

    Sounds technical is it easy to do? My other console on v2.2 would it work on that?

    It was fixed in 3.0 so it will work on 2.2

    But why do you have consoles on that firmware?
    I don't think it has more value due to the possibility of downgrading and a version that low is basically useless (unable to connect / play most games etc.)
    So unless you are trying to collect (which well... downgrades) would make you update. But for getting the OTP you are skipping 90% of the process basically. So people may even "pay extra" because they have less work to do there.

    I have 14 grandchildren so been buying consoles here and there for them to play when they visit, had these 2 for a while now I put them to one when I noticed the low firmware thought they might be collectable at some point!

    I cant find the threath right now, but I know that there is a person here who wants a clean copy of the 1.0 frimware in case there is any original Ninty cia on it which was used for testing purposes.

    If I remember correctly, (decrypted) 1.0 NAND dumps are worth to some people :P

    But otherwise, it's too low to be used for everything else, and upgrading to 4.x or 6.x or 9.x via a gamecard is almost the best option, but you would need a browser to install those payloads, but some 1.0 firmware come with no browser at all, or it's too low! So it seems the only option is to get Cubic Ninja if you want to update to the "golden" 9.2 version to get homebrew'n'stuff, but if you want to stay clean and vanilla, then it shouldn't break your 3DS to update to the latest firmware, but you'll most likely lose all access to homebrew and other cool stuff :(

    Edit: currently the only way to dump NAND is to hardmod the 3DS. Or you could try to boot Decrypt9 from the ARM9LoaderHax package via the browser to see if it works, so you may be able to dump your NAND without soldering and stuff :P

    Or you get yourself the OTP, install A9LH and then do whatever you want?
    Well a NAND dump should probably made first.

    A list of all installed titles on the device. (System titles) that's probably what these guys who want it "for research" care about.

    Either way updating sounds like a bad idea.

    Yes, it's only worth to some software / firmware researchers, but it may lead to finding other exploits that are present since the 1.0 version. And ye, since you're on 1.0, if you have the browser, you could get the ARM9LoaderHax starter kit from Plailect's guide, and you could try to dump your OTP region, so you could install ARM9LoaderHAx faster :P

    Edit: sorry, I accidently quoted you instead of the OP :P

    I will post a picture of the system screen confirming the firmware version, if anyone interested in the console just message me.

    On another point is there a good guide to follow to mod the console that's on v2.2 to allow me / grandchildren play backed up games?

    Please see my previous messages!

    Otherwise, since your other console is on 2.2, you could start from here.

    Oje, I forgot to re-mention it :wacko: Thanks for pointing it out :P

    To pirate games, the best firmware is 9.2.
