    Simple answer is no, do not try any other way either. Use a cart.

    You don't even need a specific title, you can get any game with an update up to 9.2, and if you want you can downgrade

    You cannot downgrade!

    Do not update past 4.x.

    Because he doesn't have the browser and games updates don't include it.

    v1.0 doesn't have an internet browser, and cart updates will not install it. Going past 4.X would mean that he would have no usable exploits, as all post 4.X exploits require usage of the internet browser in some form.

    OP, update to 4.X with retail, you don't have another option.

    Hmm, Didn't know that Game updates did not include the full update, thought it was the same as downloading it from the servers.
    In the case all he has are games like Luigi's mansion.

    You need to find a card that has the 4.5 update.

    I'm not sure but I think maybe you can borrow Sky3DS with luigi mansion ROM from a friend and use it to update?

    If you upgrade to 9.2 or below, you can always downgrade using Gateway.

    I was just proven wrong that game updates do not include a web browser, and since he is in 1.0 he won't get a web browser even if he updates via retail cart.

    I misunderstood. But due to it not being a full system upgrade, he will not get the browser using a cart?

    If he updates via System Settings he will update to 9.5, he will get the browser but the firmware will not be exploitable
