    Hello,
    I have a the following question and would be really thankful if someone could help me out cause Im kind of a noob. I have a new 3ds xl and a friend of mine has an older 3ds that he doesnt use anymore and I want to use that 3ds for pokegenning. As far as I know pokegenning like pkhex or qr code scanning only works on firmware 9.0.0 - 9.5.0-U22. That old 3DS is on a firmware older than 9.0.0. Is it possible to update the 3ds to a specific firmware like 9.0.0 through the settings ?If not I also heard that some games update your system to specific firmwares. Could someone recommend me some games that do update the 3ds to a firmware between 9.0.0 and 9.5.0-U22 ?
    Thanks in advance, hope someone can help me out

    You don 't have to update your system. You can install rxtools with SaveDataFiler to export your save and edit it with pkhex.
