    Ok, so I'm sitting with a friends o3ds thats on 10.2E atm. I've been told I CAN downgrade it with BrowserHax, but I can't get the AM:U service running after hours of trying.

    I was told HomeMenuHax can help this, but I've seen conflicting reports that HomeMenuHax cannot be run on 10.2E.

    We've also NOT got a nand back-up, so without confirmation about what is and isn't possible I'd rather not play with the SysNand.

    So, I ask you all.

    WHat CAN I do? CAN i downgrade from 10.2? WHAT is the best point of attack?

    IS there a way to get a nand backup before hand first? Just to be safe?

    And thats where the conflicting reports are in. Some say it CAN be done, and others say it CANNOT be done. Any definitive answer folks?

    Themehax was patched in 10.2.

    It was revived though.
    Now it's known as Menuhax.


    Short answer: Yes it works on 10.2

    See here.

    If the browser catches that a new update exists, it won't let you use it, and ultimately you will not be able to use browserhax.

    If you set up menuhax before that, then you will not need to buy a game card to set up menuhax.

    ok, I managed to install MenuHax, but now I wanna ask a quick question. Since I've got menuhax running, is there any .3dsx program I can use to make a nand backup?

    Basically, is there any Homebrew Launcher program I can use to back up the nand?

    Nope, but you can get gateway.3dsx from gateway
    I used that to get nand backup and setup emunand.

    That won't work if they're still on 10.2.
