    Hi Guys

    I just got my hands on a 3ds XL running firmware 7.1.0-16E. What is the best method of jailbreak/softmod? Flashcards or softmods like the ninja mod? And if its flashcards which is the better flashcard to get out of Gateway, sky3ds or R4?
    Thanks

    You need rxTools, not ReiNAND as mashers suggested since you have an old 3DS. Read https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/. Updating to 9.2 is not mandatory, it is just if you want to be able to autoboot (the tutorial I linked also covers this). You could equally well downgrade settings to 6.x and use the DS profile exploit to launch your CFW, or use the web browser, if you wanted. If you do want to update to 9.2, you could use sysupdater (only in devmode or pasta mode NOT rxmode, and with sysupdater NOT any other CIA manager).

    @KingManu23
    3dsdb.com contains a list of which firmware versions came with which games. Alternatively, you can download the CIA files for 9.2 and install manually using sysupdater.

    @Quantumcat
    I believe Rei works on o3ds now too, but you're right rxtools is also an option for o3ds. However, there's absolutely no reason to stay on <9.2 firmware. 9.2 give much more reliable methods for accessing CFW.

    Yes I would certainly recommend rxTools rather than reinand
