    Hey guys, what's up?
    Just want to know, it's possible to hack a 3DS 11.0 without hardmod or another 3DS?
    I've just reading that it will be possible with a new hack in one month (end of december), but I'm not realy confortable with english, so I'm not sure.
    Can you tell me more about that?
    Thanks guys!

    At the moment, without spending money you can run homebrew. If you want to spend $90 you can buy a Sky3DS (assuming you want to run "backups").

    Yeah, backups. So it's not possible yet? (but It will be okay soon with Slowhack or something like that, isn't ?)
    Thanks for your quickly response! :)

    Edit : Run homebrews seems good for emulators! Do you have a link to explain that?

    When (if? I don't know) slowhax is released you'll be able to downgrade, yes. The only option to play downgrades on 11.x is a Sky3DS but I'd suggest waiting since CFW is superior (in my opinion).

    Why is CFW superior than the Sky3ds+?

    Sky is just a cart emulator. CFW is nearly full control over the system, you can install unsigned apps, customize the Home Menu, the keyboard and the power off screen to your heart's content, run out of region games, the possibilities are endless!

    I ask this because i bought a 3ds for $99 on black Friday and it has latest firmware on it. I want to know the best way to play backups on it without downgrading software or hard-modding. The Sky3ds seems like the best way to go. Is there a full tutorial on CFW with the latest firmware?

    I was looking into this as well. The sky3ds+ is the winner, in my book. I'll be waiting for CFW, though. My psp has a custom firmware and it is awesome. I also have flashcarts for my dslite and gba, but they do not compare (and never will) to CFW.
    Sky3ds+ is on sale here.

    So in order to get CFW on my 3DS I either;

    1. Have to open up my new 3ds and solder, risking damage to the handheld.

    2. Find ANOTHER 3ds that's just happens to be already hacked with Dsiware.

    Or just buy a Sky3ds+ (which is on sale) and just play 3ds games....

    Hmmm....

    if all you do is just play games, dont use cheats, dont use any homebrew app, dont use screen capture, dont even go online, you dont use any custom themes, then sky3DS+ is perfect..
