    I think Gateway would get shit on less if they just added FIRM protection to their A9LH payloads. Right now, Gateway requires an EmuNAND to not be a massive brick risk.

    It still wouldn't likely be worth buying one, but at least it wouldn't be actively harmful.

    Could I use the included micro sd-card for the Luma cfw? Or is it recommended to use another sd-card? There are no vital information stored on the included sd card (it´s a brand new 3ds)? Just want to make sure I don´t screw anything up..

    You really want an SD card bigger than 4 GB once you have it hacked, so get a new one. I currently have a 32 GB one myself, but I wouldn't mind getting a 64 GB in the future (32 GB is pretty cheap, 64 GB is not much more https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Sele...qid=1487668179&sr=8-4&keywords=64+GB+micro+sd). Keep in mind you will need to format it to FAT32, 32K allocation size (link to guiformat in 3ds.guide main page).

    Thanks man!

    I actually ordered a 64 GB in the weekend that hasn´t arrived yet. But after I ordered it I read that you could use up to 32 GB... So I thought damn.. But you´re saying I could use 64 GB anyway?

    http://en-americas-support.nintendo...at-sd-cards-and-microsd-cards-are-compatible?

    Also.. could I use the included 4 GB for the hack and then switch when I get the new one? There are no vital information on that included on that SD-card that I would need? Can I just format it?

    all you need to do is to format it to FAT32 then it will work. Windows built-in format only allows 32GB formatting so a different formatting program must be used.

    For future reference it is not a must but a may and its windows built -in gui format only allows, not windows built-in only allows.

    Command line in windows works fine to format over 32gb drives. I believe 16tb is the limit in fat and a command in windows should have no issues eg 'format /FS:FAT32 X:

    So I got a N3DS XL on 11.0. Been following the https://3ds.guide and everything is going smooth so far. I´m at the last part of the guide: https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax
    where it tells me to:

    "Update your 3DS by going to System Settings, then “Other Settings”, then going all the way to the right and using “System Update”
    • Updates while using A9LH + Luma (what you have) are safe, stop asking about it"

    Yeah I know it says: "Updates while using A9LH + Luma (what you have) are safe, stop asking about it". But I mean... just do it? What will happen? Will I be installing firmware 11.3? That is not an issue? This wasn´t written before 11.3 was relased? Just don´t want to screw anything up. Googled it and I found a lot of different answers which makes me unsure. Some says it´s ok and some says it´s not always safe..

    It says stop asking about it. Why are you asking about it? :P

    Because I´d like an answer for the rest of the questions and not just that part. The guide was written (or at least updated) after 11.3 was released? Some say it's safe and some say it's not. I just want to know it's safe to update even after 11.3 was released and that it won't break any homebrew possibilities. Hell the guide starts with the statement that you are beeped if you got 11.3...

    Do it or not, whatever. Or if you meant "do I need to do anything else before that?", then it becomes the same question as "is it safe to do it?".
    If something else happened, it would be written. Like "don't try to update to 11.3 because that won't do shit anyway". But no, it's written "updates are safe".
    Same question as "is it safe?".
    This guide is updated everytime it needs to be. So either stuff has been written before and still applies, or it was written after, or it was written before and got an update after.
    Not sure if the guide says when it was last updated somewhere but if it doesn't, it should.
    Yeah, you are beeped if you got 11.3... before starting the guide. It's just like saying "if you don't have a screwdriver, then you can't unscrew this and do that", it doesn't mean you still need a screwdriver once you "unscrewed this and did that". The stuff you installed with the guide allows you to get any firmware in a "hackable state". So that's why homebrew was temporarily broken on 11.3 for everyone but then CFW users (and you're one of those now) could enjoy it again thanks to what this guide gives.

    First of all thanks for all your answers!

    But to the quote above. No I can´t see any date (when the guide was updated) and that's what made me unsure since there are tons of outdated guides out there. How could anyone be sure that it's really updated everytime it's needed to be? The one who wrote the guide could be ill, working, tired of it. Perhaps 11.4 (when it´s released) will break homebrew again. If I read this guide then and it´s made for 11.3 I could really screw things up. They really should add some info when it was last updated.

    But thanks again, that answered all my questions!

    I just found "the date". There is a "source" link at the bottom of the home page, and you can see that there were commits even today lol. But yeah, that's not really what I thought about when I mentioned the fact there should be a date somewhere. And due to its "open-source"ness and the fact it's text and not a video, it's guaranteed that it will be updated. And you can see in the commits that there isn't one guy only behind everything. The only problem is if you try to follow that guide very little time (less than a day) after a new firmware is out maybe.
    And of course 11.4 will break homebrew, that's what updates are for :P

    If you like RSS I have a feed set up http://quantumc.at/commits.xml but it is probably not in a readable state (I use it to send myself alerts since I maintain a fork).
