    i mainly need to play region free and play hacked roms for increased difficulty and UNDUB .

    i have searched here and there but the amount of information and cfw is overwhelming , and i couldn't figure out how to launch them without a browser.

    Edit : for those who just want to get to the point thi is TL;DR version

    Wait, a NEW 3DS with no browser? I've never heard of that.

    yup it seems that it is from the first white N3DS batch, it really is confusing :)

    You'll probably need to use Zelda OOT as entrypoint and it may require gateway, not sure if current CFWs can boot from zelda.

    Came out in a rush and so it didn't include it. Soon after 9.0 was released for N3DS and already brought it.

    Just use GW and wait till someone releases an update to 9.1 or mset. Both are close

    There are plenty of guides on here that show you how to update your console from 8.1j to 9.2j, just search or look around.

    I have just bought such console myself. Was super hyped to find one with <9.2 but didn't knew it doesn't come with the browser installed. Now I have no idea what to do, tried to find cubic ninja on akihabara but can't find it anywhere, I'm running out of options and would love to hear your opinion on this matter. I believe I can still return the console, and if there's no way to hack it, I will probably do that.

    I understand you have some inside knowledge on this, right?

    Ronhero and Lemanuel are finalizing their methods. If you can't wait, JPN CN + Gateway or Sky3ds + Gateway combos are your best options. Sky3ds alone can play games but probably no eshop access.

    Okay, thanks a lot :) would I need cubic ninja for that? Or anything else I would have to take care of before I leave Japan?

    Hunt it down at local stores. If there is none, you can always get a sky3ds later to emulate that.

    To be honest, I don't need roms, just wanted a region free method and English emuNand on this console. I could use 10.0.1 with homemenuhax and regionFour but I'm afraid it will soon be patched. I believe emuNand is much more safer method.
