    That's a possibility the White jap units sometimes have 8.1 and 9.0 though as time passes your chances are even lower. Use this thread to find a New 3DS on the needed firmware http://gbatemp.net/threads/n3ds-xl-firmware-by-version-number.381479/

    If you went with a Japanese one, careful as you may end up with 8.1J which is difficult in terms of CFW. You'd need a GW.
    (There's another option but it is not noob-friendly.)

    Its just the 8.1 firmware in general since it has no browser

    US ones, you'd have to get an XL because all US regular-size ones are over 9.2
    XL can be 9.0-9.2 but it gets rarer as time goes by. There's a thread here if you can check the serial numbers on the box before buying them, but it still isn't 100% certain you'll get that version if you buy one from those serial numbers. That and they get rarer as time goes by.

    No you don't need a flash card unless you plan on buying a New 3DS on 9.3+ you can use homemenuhax with mini pasta or setup rxTools for free.

    Big question, man: with GW you mean I would need all the GW cards (the red gateway card and the blue one)? Please help on this, I almost have a japenese NN3ds on 8.1. What should I do?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I have Zelda Ocarina of Time. This game works to hack the japenese console or something, man?

    stay clear of 8.1 units unless you have a japanese OOT cart or japanese cubic ninja cart.

    Ok, man. What about if I buy a GW (both cards)? This would work on this japanese console on 8.1?

    It's a New 3DS so you would need those game to launch the Gateway menu either way.

    No unless you plan on buying an Original 3DS (XL) or a 2DS.

    Thanks, man. And one final question there: It would be possible using a copy of the japanese version of Zelda OoT with a Sky3ds on it to launch the GW menu and make the CFW?

    Yes you could use a Japanese Cubic Ninja rom temporarily to update to 9.2.0-20 and setup rxTools by using homemenuhax but buying one defeats the purpose of setting up CFW if you have someone who owns a skycard that is an option or you can buy one, do what you need to do, and return it.
