    So what does frankenfirmware actually do?
    You say its available but nothing about what it does.

      It was considered the “Golden Firmware” that allowed you to do all your hacking needs. It allowed you to install a custom system software on your SD card in EmuNand. After 9.2 you needed to downgrade to 9.2 in order to use CFW or EmuNand.

        That’s not what frankenfirmware is, though. From my understanding, it’s when you partially upgrade/downgrade and don’t complete it so you are stuck with an in-between firmware (and it often results in a soft brick). 9.2 is just a normal firmware version.

          Is called like that because New 3DS and 2DS lacks of firmware version 2.1 necesary to recover your OTP file which is needed for installing a CFW. So in order to do so, you need to downgrade to 9.2, make a sort of “downgrade” to 2.1 installing certain files from the original 2.1 FW over 9.2 (thus the FrankenFirmware apellation), extract your OTP and “upgrade” again to 9.2

    how do i keep from getting banned if i do this and go online?

    • thedicemaster

      use good judgement.
      the only bans so far(to my knowledge) where because people went online in games before release(pokemon S/M), people using cheats online, and people posting impossible/hacked stuff on miiverse.
