What is the technical reason that friend code must be exchanged to perform seedminer exploit as described in 3dsguide? Is there any way to do all of this without Internet connection and Nintendo online services? Basically i'm wondering if the method is anymore possible after some day Nintendo will shut down 3DS services, and buying a flashcart would then be the only way to install CFW. I can find this text from Seedminer's readme.txt:
[C - No homebrew and no friends with homebrew] - hardest

Currently for dedicated GPUs only. Needs Pycryptodomex installed. (pip install pycryptodomex)
0) (Optional) - if you wish to brute force your mii qr and movable.sed in one command, do step 3 in part B and place the
movable_part1.sed in the seedminer folder. This file will automatically be generated with the id0 command if it doesn't exist.
1) Find a mii in mii maker that was created on YOUR system. That's very important. Make one from scratch if you're not sure where it came from.
2) Export the mii to a QR code. They're found in the "sdmc:/DCIM/100NIN03/" and named something like "HNI_1234.JPG".
3) Upload it to 3ds.goombi.fr/editMii/ then "Import from -> QR code"
4) "Export to -> encrypted .bin"
5) Take resulting input.bin, place it in the seedminer/ directory, and run:
python seedminer_launcher.py mii new|old [year of 3ds manufacture]
NOTE: If you have a new3ds, you *might* have to choose "mii old". If you sys-transferred from an old3ds, and have never system
formatted, you will need to select old. Although an incorrect guess will cause the brute force to fail, you can try the other
option next time.
NOTE2: You can optionally select the year you guess the 3ds was manufactured. This is done in hopes of reducing the brute-force time.
If you have no clue, just don't enter a year. The brute force will then start in the midpoint of the possible LFCS range.
A wrong year guess will not fail the brute force.
(old3ds 2011-2017, new3ds 2014-2017 inclusive are accepted year options)
7) Wait until movable_part1.sed dumps then move on to brute forcing movable.sed (if you did the optional step 0, the next brute force
should start automatically and you can proceed to DSIHaxInjector stage when everythin is done).

Which seems like a way to do it without Nintendo services & friend system. But it too requires using the site 3ds.goombi.fr/editMii/ which source code i can't find anywhere, so i'm not quite sure whether this is an answer to my question or not.

How about the new exploits/methods instead of Seedminer? Should be enough to ensure future CFW installation (unless Nintendo patches them)

Ahh, another exploit in the browser. Didn't quite understand how would that universal-otherapp work on 11.4 though just from that github page, the release from 4 days ago seemed to reference to same browserhax?

If you have a NEW console, just perform the new-browserhax-XL method, but instead of put the files indicated there, follow this:
  • Download the otherapp.bin from universal-otherapp. Then put it on the SD card root and rename as arm11code.bin.
  • Download and extract on the root of the SD card the SafeB9SInstaller.bin from SafeB9SInstaller latest version
  • Download the boot9strap normal release (not devkit or ntr versions). Create on the root of the SD a folder named "boot9strap" and extract the boot9strap.firm and boot9strap.firm.sha files inside this folder.
  • Download the Luma latest release and extract the boot.firm and the boot.3dsx files on the root of the SD card.
  • Perform the new-browserhax-XL method (from step 3) and when SafeB9SInstaller runs, follow the instructions on the screen. You get B9S + Luma CFW installed on your console!
  • Finally, follow this finalizing setup guide.
And no, isn't the exactly new-browserhax from here (that works just until 11.13 system version, and browserhax-XL works on 11.14 specifically).

Right, so the universal-otherapp is dependent on the new "new-browserhax-XL" exploit and not an individual exploit per se?
