    Ok guys I just downgraded to 9.2
    My question is, I want to be able to play roms of 3ds games on my system (N3DS XL 9.2.0_20u)
    Do I need a custom firmware to do this? If yes can you point me to a guide or explain what firmwares the best to use. If not could you do the same and point me to a rom guide/explain.
    Ive been looking for past hour, and I just keep finding how to romhack and edit roms/games. Nothing on how to install and play roms.

    So Im running the .py folder and it opens for like 1 milisecond then closes and no firm file shows up. If I drag it into python and run it, it says invalid syntax.

    IIRC, you need Python 2.7 for this

    Why do you need to hardmod when you're on 9.2 sysNAND already?

    I think they had previously been above 10.3 so they couldn't downgrade. But now there is a way to do it without a hardmod and OP had ordered it before hand. At least I think thats probably what happened.

    Exactly, I ordered the parts, and 2 hours later the non-hardmod way was released =\

    Can someone please explain how one would go about installing theme packs that are in cia format. I tried using fbi but nothing appeared in themes or on home screen .

    Not too sure about installing theme cias but I believe on that iso site has themes in CHMM2 format. An alternative if you can't find an answer
