Ihs there any way to somehow fake a firmware number higher than 4.5? I recently bought a 3ds with a firmware less than 4.5, and it just so happened I bought the 3ds during the free pokemon x y game. I really want to get the x y game, but I can't even download the x y game because I cant go to the nintendo eshop to buy it, because I would have to do a 3ds system update to access the eshop, which would ultimately raise my firmware number! Im still a newbie at much of the tech knowledge, so I dont know much about emunand or exploits or whatever. Ive heard that I could trick the 3ds into thinking that its a higher firmware, but its still truly firmware 4.5. so..... Hpw can I do this guys?? Are there any other strategies other than faking the firmware?
