I know, that plaitarchs tutorial is online, and I have read it a few times. and I understand how at least to set up the homebrew launcher and downgrade to 9.2 my question is this: it is easy for me to make giftcards online, and I could just buy eshop and games no problem. yes I am concerned about bricking my 3ds, and I have a friend that said he'd help me hack it, but now he has a new gf, and I don't know how that is going to work lol. so my question is this: if I downgraded to 9.2, installed the homebrew launcher and menuhack, could I then upgrade to the lastest 3ds os, and put emulators on it using the homebrew launcher?? then I could play online etc.
