I have been out of the Softmodding scene for awhile... Mainly becuase I needed a break from it, and it would take up to much of my time I have been avoiding it becuase I wanted to focus on school more so I don't become a moddingholic (If that's even a word.) All I can say is that the work I normally am doing now is a lot more complex than last year so I been avoiding this site to prevent myself getting distracted on purpose. Yes I still come on here eventually to maybe check something, post, or talk about something but that's a whole other story compared to what I did in the community in the past with the Wii Hacking scene previously. Felt slightly embaraced becuase of it. So anyway I have been considering Softmodding my New 3ds XL (With 11.0 FW.) To give it some extra features like games, or content, emulators, modifications, and helpful/useful tools like being able to retexture a theme, or boot into certian parts of a 3DS like Homebrew. I have been out of the scene for awhile so I don't know what is and is not possible at the moment. Keep in mind I can still do it if I wanted to, it's just I won't be able to spend as much time as I normally would tweaking, or fixing something. My main questions are; -Should I hack my 3DS? -How much time would I need to hack such a device to give it the basic Homebrew Features, or fixing it? -(Besides bricks) Are there any risks involved -What are the latest Homebrew/Hacking methods, is 11.0 Firmware a good FW Version to use for 3DS hacking?
