Please give me a actual working, recent tutorial on how to mod my Nintendo 3DS for it to be able to run these mods on here. I don't want to end up bricking my 3DS though, that's the last thing I ever want. I want a careful step by step guide that will help me mod my 3DS. 

Though I am also afriad as well about the fact that if Nintendo may ban me on the 3DS and I may not be able to play online anymore. Please help

    Also Nintendo can't really detect that you're using mods because they don't do anything for other players (they are client-side). Players were banned for pirating Pokemon Sun and Moon and playing online before release, but I don't think another thing like that is very likely.

    That's for installing arm9loaderhax and Luma Custom Firmware, only possible before version 11.4 (the current one).

    Even though this is not the right place for asking to mod the 3DS, but what's your firmware o  your 3DS? Is it on 11.2 or 11.3?
    If you update your 3DS to 11.4, you can't mod anymore.
    To check your firmware, go to System Setting and you'll see a number and a letter.
