    So, what CFW you should choose?

    In this thread I'm trying to give some tips 'bout CFW and recommend you what CFW you should choose.

    CFW "explained":
    • RedCFW(dimok version with sign patched redNAND)
    • WupCFW(FIX94 version with only sign patches)
    I chose these names for convenience

    RedCFW
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    WupCFW
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I hope I helped you in this choice :yayu:

    TODO:
    1. Adding tons of links
    2. Explain more things
    3. Adding other CFW (when released)

    Don't share fw.img too.


    To write this thread I took inspiration from similar one in 3DS section :sleep:

    I choose RedNAND for...obvious reasons, as well as the fact that you can install pretty much anything without flaws, and the fact that almost everybody is using it these days :yayu:

    I held off on RedNAND and am personally glad that I did, WupCFW is working brilliantly for all my needs. If I were actually developing something or didn't have faith in my skills of knowing what I can and can't do without bricking, then I'd have gone the RedNAND route, but as of now I just see no use for it.

    There's no guide or link to a thread for setting up wupcfw.

    1) Put the fw.img (wupcfw) in your SDCard
    2) boot cfw_booter
    3) DOne
