    Do I need anything extra for this to work?
    • Nope! All you need is any model of 3DS (2DS, N3DS included) on any firmware and a 2GB SD card (at least).
    Can this brick my system?
    • The possibility is there, so you should be aware before starting this. If you follow every step carefully, you don't have anything to worry about.
    Region free?
    • Yes, this will allow you to play any game from other regions, you can even change your system's region if you want.
    What can I do with this?
    • Homebrew
    • Emulators
    • Backup physical games to your SD card
    • Backup and restore save files
    • Edit save files (Pokemon!)
    • ROM hacks (fan translations!)
    • Region free
    • Recover from bricks (after CFW is installed)
    • Custom themes
    • Screenshots in any game
    • Stream gameplay to your PC without the need of a capture card (New 3DS only!)
    • Ability to update to latest 3DS firmware without losing homebrew
    • Install homebrew directly to your Home menu
    • Run many old DS flashcarts that didn't previously work
