All information was used using this guide - https://3ds.guide/

This is a hacking guide for every 3DS model that has firmware version 9.0.0 - 11.3.0. Do not attempt if your version is above or below that firmware version. This guide is for 3DS's that have never been modded before. This guide used the New Nintendo 3DS XL which using a micro sd card. You may have to use a standard SD card depending on what model 3DS or 2DS you have.

Hardware you need:

1) Large capacity SD or Micro SD card (32GB-128GB)

2) SD Card to USB adapter - I used this one as it is SD and Micro SD although the micro sd slot never worked, I had to use the SD adapter which it does not come with.

Ahhh screw this. Just bought a 2ds xl. All I care about is playing the Mario and Zelda games. I’ll just pay the extra $50. This seems like a pain in the ass

Very end of video question:

Is there a way to change the version number of the copied game? The cheat I’m trying to use for animal crossing only works with the version1.5

The one I copied was version1.5 but my cheat menu will only work for the cartridge version of the game. I’m assuming it has something to do with the version number

Molly Lynn 

Question before I do all of this. I used to have a gateway and specifically still have my firmware on 9.0 because of it. I was using an emuNAND to play roms via gateway or downloaded .cias. Now I haven’t messed with the system in a while. Really now all I would like is to be able to play roms and also be able to extract (as possibly edit) save data for games, which I had previously used savedatafiler back in the day. If I go through and do all of this, will I still be able to do that? I don’t care much about anything else. Just save data editing and playing roms.

hello, I've followed another video and used a R4i Gold 3DS Plus card to jailbreak a Nintendo 2DSXL, all looks good and it appears to be jailbroken but I don't can't work out were to save Game Roms on the SD card, I have saved .nds and .3ds Roms in the root of the SD card but the console does not see any games? Please help. Thanks.

First things first ... you forgot to explain the section how to make the 'otherapp' file. Luckily i found another video who explained it. And then i did the update and then my 2DS gave an error concerning the firm ware. I could not start up the console again. So i found another video explaining that the boot.firm should be replaced by another boot.firm file and that one worked like a charm. Now you put files in a 'safe location', but you did not explained why and for what purpose ? But overall good tutorial. Thanks Sir :)


Is this still relevant tutoria todayl? And will it mess up if you update when updating to new versions on old 2ds?

Very good Tutorial. Hope you add the latest for 11.9.0-42x too! Looking forward. Thanks!


Will this CFW actually read downloded 3DS game files?


Dang look at all those games in the background that’s like thousands of dollars

Michael Andrej Hagyari 

Will it work if I have an older Nintendo 3DS? That means that I can’t use mini SD cards, only big ones


Can you do one for the newest version please?

Tommy Ngo 

How for 11.9
