Ok buckle up cause this is a huge post.

Basically I dont know anything about "hacking" the 3ds.

Im not sure what the term is (i.e. for android its called rooting, playstation and apple its called jailbreaking, xbox its called jtagging or rghing) so anyways, ive only once rooted my android and then i accidentally bricked it, I also jailbroke my playstation 3 and then sold that. But I have a red 3ds xl old edition (not new edition), and I want to know what can or will happen if I hack it, how to hack it, and what I can do if I hack it, I really dont want to buy a new one if I brick it. Just someone who is most expierienced please give me a background on this and tell me if I should or not so that I can know if I should do it or not. Btw what can I do to games like Pokemon Sun, Super Smash Bros, Pokemon Red, The Legend of Zelda NES Edition, and Super Mario Bros 3 if I hack my 3ds? (I paid for all of those games ;(

So im screwed? 

hmmm, how soon do you suppose they will crack it? So that I can downgrade?
There is no possible way to get or come up with a valid ETA. It could very well never happen

Well that sucks, anything else I can do with a 11.3.0-36U O3DS XL? I barely have any games and all the ones I have Ive already beaten, what more can I do with this thing spending as little money as possible?

Assuming your goal is to pirate games there isnt anything you can do without spending $80 on a flashcart

3ds hacking wise, uour stuck as there isn't an exploit for homebrew. But if you want you can look online for a orogional DS flashcart like an R4 and use that to play origional DS roms to tide you over.

An R4 wont work for his system without CFW they are blacklisted. Supposedly the "gold" cards work however they have a time gate hard coded into their firmware that makes them stop functioning
