    Hi all, just got my New3DS from the mail and it came in 11.1.0-34U firmware. I have an broken Old 3DS XL i need to data transfer to it, it's 11.2.0-35U.
    Thing is, i want to try some of the cool emulators for N3DS, so i need an entrypoint to HBC, there's one currently for 11.2.0-35U? Should i update my New3DS so i can do data transfer?
    I don't have Cubic Ninja, Freakyforms nor Ironfall, i do have Zelda OoT physical.

    I'd do it. You don't even need a game for 11.2 because you can simply launch the homebrew launcher through the sound app (soundhax)

    I would suggest updating to 11.2, and hacking it all the way to a9lh for emulators/games. https://3ds.guide/ should help you with that.

    Thanks, guys. I'm already using soudhax in it and too afraid of soft mod it.

    No real reason to be scared as long as don't skip steps. Just follow 3ds.guide
