    (sorry if you guys are having a hard time trying to understand about the stuff im saying but english is not my main language)so yeah. i decided to buy a n3ds because my old 3ds broke a long time ago. and welp i heard that it is now possible to hack your n3ds with oot3dhax on 11.0 so ive just order a powersave off ebay and welp. i just want to know a few things before getting homebrew in it.

    so yeah. here my main questions.

    1: can i put custom themes in my n3ds without bricking it?
    2: if in any case my 3ds ever came to have any sort of problems will nintendo support repair it? (as for now im only planning to use homebrew. nothing else.)
    3. what are some apps that i should not use in my n3ds?
    4. what is the save file that i need to put in oot3d to be able to use homebrew?

    so yeah. thats all the questions i have as for now. it would be nice if you guys answer my questions.

    (firmware) 11.0.0-33U.

    It's impossible to brick on 11.0.

    1) Yes, with CFW/CHMM2

    2) It will do, although it'll update to latest vers, usually. Homebrew can be removed, though I guess.

    3) There isn't many, apart from installing stuff to NAND which can be fatal..

    4) you use a payload from a homebrew app with powersaves you extract it from then patch it over~

    OoTHax is quite unstable on 11 FIRM though.

    Yes.
    Yes but uninstall any entrypoints and wipe homebrew files from the SD.
    On 11.0 there is no kernel access so anything is fine and reversable.

    I should add that you can not downgrade on 11.0 (yet.)

    you can. By downgrading NATIVE_FIRM via known-plaintext attack (which requires a NAND backup) and then downgrading to 9.2 as you would from 10.7.

    hardmod =/= known-plaintext attack, but it does require a hardmod (as to dump and restore the NAND).

    oh and also is it still possible to play games online if you stick with the current firmware? and/or download updates for any game?

    It'll be sometime until a kernel exploit is found on 11 FIRM, with ARM9 Acess
