    Apologies! I'm new to this forum and the art of custom firmware etc. I'm basically wanting to play copies of games or whatever you call them on my New Nintendo 3DS. Where do I start?

    You go to https://3ds.guide and follow every step, read everything and do not do anything the guide doesn't mention.

    Then you install freeShop.

    If you've updated to 11.3, you can forget about playing games for free for the time being. If you have not updated to 11.3, then follow http://3ds.guide. Afterwards, you can either find your games in .cia format and install them with FBI or use freeShop (http://freeshop.pw) to get your games. Note that freeShop does not have every game.
