    the 3ds.guide and got to the "Finalizing setup" part and tried launching FBI, but it just sits there and loads forever.... Is there something I'm missing?

    I have had the 3ds for a few days now. Came to me on 11.4 and haven't even played a game on it, so I'm pretty new to all of this stuff. The hardmodding was the easy part for me :(

    Try with the 3DSX version or try injecting FBI again with Hourglass9.
    Also, what's your 3ds ver? New or old? Version?

    https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup section iii - launching FBI part 10, where it's supposed to launch homebrew launcher. it just has that loading screen that runs continuously.

    So I'm pretty new to all of this... by that do you mean what I did? I put the FBI.3dsx into the /3ds/ folder that I created on my SD Card.

    That part about injecting FBI with Hourglass9 completely lost me. I'll look into it, though. Thanks.

    Edited to add, New 3DS XL

    Yeah, try that. but in a folder to work. like:
    SD:/3ds/FBI/fbi.3dsx
    Maybe you didn't follow that? You're in 11.3X, right?

    I didn't, because I'm new to all of this. Is that a part of GodMode? I held start while booting and got to this menu... but still don't know what to do from there.

    Try downloading another FBI version or from other website (3DSX. version, not CIA)

    Alright, injecting FBI with Hourglass9 worked! FBI is now running. For those of you in the future who are new AF like me...
    I downloaded Hourglass9 and put the .bin into the luma/payloads folder.
    Booted up by holding START during power on and selected Hourglass9... then followed these directions

    At some point during that process, I had to hit certain buttons to verify what I was doing... but it worked perfectly. Now off to finish the guide.

    Thanks, Braixen! I'm hoping to get this all squared away soon as I'll be taking a loooooong flight to Japan soon and need something to keep me occupied.

    Cool! You will go to japan!?!! Heck yeah!
    Also nice to see now FBI is working. Now install FreeShop,and welcome to paradise! also, and at the least keep 2 NAND.sha.bin,NAND.BIN and NANDMIN.BIN in your pc if something bricked your console.

    Yeah, I uploaded them to a bunch of cloud storage accounts.

    Am I correct in my understanding that a system version less than 11.4.0.37-U will be able to run CFW by just using software/soundhax?

    Yes. And with ntrboothax coming at some point soon probably, you will be able to run CFW on any 3DS on any firmware with just a flashcart and magnet.
