First and foremost I would like to introduce myself to the Project Pokemon community as I recently found out about you guys. Now, hopefully I'm on the right topic of this forum as it involves PKHeX and the Nintendo 3DSXL Firmware.
So recently, I got back into Pokemon and I wanted to make a WiFi team via PKHeX. Way before I even heard about PKHeX and decided on trying the software out, I updated the firmware of my Nintendo 3DSXL (currently 9.9.0-26U). I didn't realize I did something most regrettable until a good night of research and confirmation. According to the PKHeX website,
"Injection will not work on any later firmwares (9.6.x or 9.7.x) either! Software cannot and will not be updated to support later firmwares! Do not update if you wish to use QR injection, RAM2sav, PCEdit, or any other Web Browser (spider) injection method."
Others are also saying PKHeX doesn't support starting from firmware version 9.5.0-23. Any firmware version below that is supported as I have heard. I also looked up to try to see if I can downgrade my firmware but, I found out that I can only downgrade my firmware if its on 9.2 by using some Gateway thing or something. Basically I'm pretty much screwed and can't use PKHex on my Nintendo 3DSXL.
Now that the story is out of the way here's my question. I would like to know what is the firmware version a Nintendo 3DSXL has when it is fresh bought and out of the box. My plan was to go to my local Gamestop and probably trade in my current Nintendo 3DSXL and add in some cash together with in-store credit to buy a completely different one. Another question I would like to ask is about the New 3DSXL. Does PKHex support the New 3DSXL? I've seen on other forum sites that the New 3DSXL comes with firmware version 9.2 and I am automatically assuming that since its a firmware version 9.5.x and below, that PKHeX will be supported by the New 3DSXL.
All your help and information will be most appreciated.
