    This one specifically:
    http://www.play-asia.com/new-nintendo-3ds-white/13/7087hn

    I asked them directly, and I got a very unhelpful answer:
    I'm hoping they still have launch units available with 9.0 on them. I already bought a 9.0 unit from P-A in the beginning of this year, and just last week I helped a friend snag a 9.0 unit from Ebay.com.au, but I'd like to find another one for another friend. I don't want to order one/have someone else order one and be out of luck because the firmware isn't exploitable for region-free, region changing for a manual system transfer, and etc.

    Has anyone on 'Temp ordered one recently? If so, what firmware did it come with?

    unless it is a returned product, very likely to be 9.2 or below. As always this is not 100%

    American n3DSs cannot be below 9.5, by the way.
    Black n3DSs are pretty much guaranteed to be 9.0 - 9.2 at this point.
    9.0 - 9.2 White n3DSs are harder to come by. See if you can return it if it's above 9.2, or at least sell it Used somewhere.
