    Do I need to purchase a Flashcard e.g. Gateway or can I install a CFW and play homebrew/games from an SD Card (without having to purchase anything like Cubic Ninja)?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, new to the scene and interested as I own an old 3DS running 4.5

    Thanks, I downloaded RxTools but it mentions having firmware.bin in the root of the folder. I couldn't see this file anywhere, any advice?

    There should be an application in the download that you run that will download the file to your computer.

    Got it working, thanks

    If I have downloaded homebrew/a 3ds ROM where do I put it in order to pin it to my homescreen in RxMode?

    How do I install FBI in Rxtools?

    I've got it on the root of my SD Card and when I try to install in the Rx menu it says "Failure!"
