    Hey guys! How are you doing?
    I'm thinking about buying 2DS and i am very excited with that!
    I have a R4i 3DS GOLD (RTS) flashcard and i want to install CFW on the 2DS, according to the topics i read it will work no matter what the 2DS version will be right?
    Also is there any limitation in the downloaded games i can play with CFW? (because someone in a video told that he can't play Alpha Sapphire)

    Also does 2DS XL support cfw too?
    Here https://3ds.hacks.guide says that New 2DS is supported. Does he, by the term "new 2ds" means the XL version??

    It doesnt matter what firmware anymore, you just need to put some files on your sd card and flick the switch in your R4I card

    Yes. The New 2DSXL supports CFW. All models do. The 'New' tag means that it is a 'second generation' 3DS console. A 3DS with 'New' on the logo has added features including significantly faster processing, built-in amiibo support, and a few exclusive games. It's quite confusing for some people to distinguish the two, but if you are planning on getting a 3DS or 2DS I would reccomend a 'New' model just because the extra perks are quite useful. And on another note, some homebrew programs will only run on New models. On this forum, the abbreviation for a 'New' model is 'n3ds' and the one for a first-generation system is 'o3ds'. In addition, the 2DS is basically the same as the 3DS, so the abbreviation applies to the corresponding 2DS.

    Sorry for the monologue and hope this helps (:

    You are right I checked it before but I have a question.
    The system firmware is 11.0.0 and I have R4i GOLD 3DS (RTS) so I can use ntrboot or Homebrew Launcher (Soundhax).
    Which one should I choose?
    One guy told me to use ntrboot but I see on the site that it while the exploit is installed on the system the R4 will be unusable in this 2DS.
    Is there any significant difference between these methods?
    Thank you!

    Ntrboot is easier if you have a powerful enough magnet to use. A neodymium magnet, not a normal kitchen magnet. I tried it with a kitchen magnet and couldn't get it working. Luckily a lot of people have neodymium magnets in their phone/tablet cases, in the part that folds over to lock it.

    In that case you don't need a magnet (it is to put the console in sleep mode).

    Fine! So in your opinion should I choose ntrboot right? Is there a significant difference in the difficulty?

    Just do it, neither way is very hard. People here can help you with both ways if you get stuck.
