The guide is valid for all versions of the firmware of the Nintendo 3DS/3DS XL between 4.1 is 9.2 (from now on in the article we will call it O3DS) and for all versions of the New Nintendo 3DS / 3DS XL (from now N3DS) between 9.0 is 9.2.
You cannot use this guide if you have one of the latest versions of the Nintendo firmware (at the time of writing 9.7).
To find out the version you have, open Nintendo console settings and read the firmware number in the upper screen.

The aim is to make this known QR code in the form of an image to the game Cubic Ninja.
Point the console as if you were to take a photograph on the computer screen where you loaded the image QR code with the links above.
The following image is an example for New Nintendo 3DS. Choose the one corresponding to your firmware or the procedure will not be completed successfully.

When the upload is complete, you will see thereHomebrewLauncher.
From this program you can start other programs.
To use custom firmware and allow execution of unsigned code, you must first start the PastaCFWby selecting it from the list.
