    Im tired of issues with my Sky3ds. the team seems dead and I will not support them in the future due to lack of updates. Anyway I want to install the best CFW option for me on my 3dsXL

    Im running version 10.7.0-31U firmware. What is the best guide to use and what card do you use for storing the roms? I have a 64gb card to use.

    http://3ds.guide is the only guide you'll ever need.
    I use a SanDisk Ultra card, they're great. Samsung Evo is also great.

    you may use it as well as cfw . . . but with cfw you generally use .cia files on the consoles sd card

    Do what gamesquest1 said, also the flashing colors are normal on n3DS. Also, like the guide says, you have to insert the microSD after boot every time you reboot in 2.1.0.

    Thanks I didnt find any instructions on how to install stuff but I assume you put them in the cia folder. Launch FBI and install from there? Also it is painfully slow for installs?? Seesm to be taking forever for a 3gig file. Also can I remove the CIA from the folder after its installed?

    the speed thing is normal and you'll get used to it, you only need to install once. just put it to the side and watch some videos on youtube
    fbi should come with a install and delete cia option so it automatically removes the cia once its done installing.

    Good to know thank you all. Hope someone else finds my troubles helpful!

    Best advise go slow and follow all the steps! Double check your spellings and folder names / locations

    I often say, read it and read it again. If you feel unsure, search and if you still are unsure, ask.
