    Are you fucking serious?..

    Don't update. Run gateway, get an emunand, and then run rxtools. Blam, free emunand and roms.

    Which he can do without updating. Why throw away better homebrew experience for a much limited homebrew scene 9.3+??

    still a stupid decision even if you just want homebrew

    you can get the best of all the worlds on 4.5

    Dont listen to @Filo97 what you want is rxTools https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/ its a free CFW that will allow you to play games,homebrew,rom hacks,etc... You can setup Emunand for the latest firmware.

    doesn't matter. why update to a "soon to be exploited" firmware rather than just staying on a firmware already exploited?

    Yes but there's still a ton of work needed to be done in order to get kernal access on 10.3

    Yes, I did. But guess what... The main exploit being worked on right now... IS BEING WORKED ON TO DOWNGRADE???? Why upgrade a rare and very amazing firmware to only downgrade it later. The Kexploits aren't even out on 9.3+ and they will not be out in the next few days even.

    OP: I suggest that you create an emunand and install RXtools through the browser. There are many guides, and I'm pretty sure the guide that was just posted will be just perfect.

    this isn't the edge of the forum, you know

    anyway, simply put:

    do not update from 4.5, you can easily set up emunand and the like to get the best homebrew available now. updating past that (or 9.2) gives you an unstable environment for homebrew.

    But you gave him the worst possible option for someone who wants to hack their 3ds. Why give them the worst option?

    updating past 9.2 gives you less options for homebrew. simple as that.

    *hax is not a suitable environment because random things keep breaking. meanwhile emunand + CIA homebrew is the best kind of homebrew. literally.
    I probably still won't for reasons

    Say that you want to know which door leads to paradise. Someone comes and says that there are several doors, but each have their own qualities. Would you rather them take you through the small and "in development" paradise or the giant and massively perfected paradise?
