    As the thread is saying, I recently got a new 2DS who didn't had any contact with Internet (base version 7.2.0-17E), and due to the latest 3DS cracking news, I am completely confused about how can I crack mine.

    Considering I have access to neither Cubic Ninja or 3DS linkers, are there any options available ? A step-by-step help is very welcomed, as well as the options available once the console is cracked.

    Thanks in advance.

    Depending on what you want you should either get a Gateway for the best of everything, or Cubic Ninja for some good stuff. Avoid Sky unless you accidentally update your system past 9.2.

    Gateway card on a 2DS will let you play .3ds files from the card, .cia files that are installed on something called emuNAND, allow you to update your emuNAND to 9.8, play hacked games, extract and import saves, play region free, etc.

    But how is he gonna launch GW mode without the web browser?
    This is a dilemma that I haven't yet seen a solution to.

    According to this topic Cooking Mama: Bon Appétit EU comes with the 9.2 update, so OP should just be able to buy that game and update to 9.2 if necessary.

    Edit: I know it isn't a no browser solution, but it's the best that seems to be around, so gotta make do with what's there.

    I guess I forget that Nintendo organizes their updates weirdly. I find it odd to begin with that they'd ship systems with firmware that doesn't include basic functions. The rationale behind it is easy enough to figure, but it still feels like an incomplete product out of the box.

    What does make you think that he doesn't have the browser? His firmware is 7.2.0-17E so he has it.

    New consoles don't include the browser either.
    But Ninjhax uses the browser too.

    They do, the only exceptions are the non-XL O3DS and the 8.1 japaneses n3ds. Both my O3DS xl (4.2.0-9E) and my N3DS XL (9.0.0-20E) have it and I never updated them.

    Why wouldn't he have a browser?

    To my knowledge, the only device in the 3DS family that doesn't come with a browser is the Japanese 8.1 launch new3DS.

    This isn't the first time I've seen you saying this shit, please stop spreading misinformation.

    Being new to the scene confusing enough without people like you spreading bullshit.

    I know the n3DS includes it, but I was under the impression that the other models didn't, maybe that was only true for older versions. My mistake.

    I don't know if I should feel relieved to see I'm not the only one confused, or worried to see everyone confused. I can confirm I have the browser on it, though.

    Also, I've seen some sources claiming I could bypass the use of both Cubic Ninja and a linker by using https://gbatemp.net/threads/rxtools-with-signatures-patched-out.390607/ instead of the game. Is this confirmed or do you still need an external tool ?

    You can do that. Use pasta/ninjhax/gateway to install bbm on rxtools and you can play all your backup games without a flashcart

    Thanks for the information. I'll probably re-read some threads in order to be sure what I'll have to do and in which order, but you gave me a way, and I'll try to do it correctly. Feel free to drop some additional input if needed.

    And if I may suggest, people should write one or two step-by-step tutorials on what things you can do with brand new consoles, considering lots of them are still available on the market (my locals, for example, still have every 2DS, as well as the Smash Bros 3DS XL and the classic 3DS XL colors, and a general store near my home still has black basic 3DSes), and we can expect more and more people asking about that and being as confused as I was.

    Keep up the good work, guys.

    Like I said, it wasn't the first time I'd seen you say that, so I wanted to set you straight. Sorry if I came off as a dick, I've been told the "tone" of my posts can be condescending at times.

    While I was confident in my statement, I wanted to be 100% certain. So I pulled out all of my "new" 3DSes and checked them all (a 2DS and 3DS XL both on 6.1, along with a new3DS XL on 9.0), all three had fully functional web browsers.

    Sorry again if I came off as an asshole.
