    If you are on 11.0, I recommend that you follow that tutorial quickly because the next update will probably prevent it. (They just have to update Home Menu)

    Interesting. What if someone found a way to release a custom CIA file to replace the update? Remove/change the hard coded list and change the version data to something the updated 3DS will accept, and then use that to downgrade?

    Edit: Thought it over, and realized I wasn't thinking about signatures.

    just follow the tutorial very, very, very carefully.
    if you don't have experience, follow the first link, for someone to hardmod it for yourself :P
    If you have, follow the second very carefully

    nope, you have to use a solder. if you are scared ask someone(first link) to hardmod it for you. It's really not that expensive, considering that a mistake can cost you $200

    I'm sure you're aware at this point since this is kinda old but if you aren't OoTHax is available now for 11.0

    Using electric tape in place of solder is never a good idea, especially considering the rather small solder points on the 3DS board. It might work if you're extremely careful about it, but it's not worth the overall insecurity of trying to hold it together with tape. One accidental tug and you could disconnect the wire or worse, short something important out.

    That being said, it's not like the soldering itself is particularly difficult, so yes, you could even borrow the tools or have someone make the solders for you.
