    My girlfriend updated her 2DS to 9.5. I was wondering if it is possible to use a hardware mod to downgrade back to the 9.2 dump I made using gateway. I've browsed the forums a bunch and seen no solid answer on the success of a 2ds nand downgrade. Someone please help. I am also curious (as I haven't messed with .cia files) whether cia eshop games work on sysNAND

    yeah just to confirm the 2DS nand mod does work and downgrading works fine, just note that the 2DS is more picky in regards to what SD readers work for nand reading/writing, and try to keep the cables as short as possible

    i would suggest maybe sending to someone like hundshamer if your not to confident soldering or whatever i only suggest people with soldering experience as a few people have screwed up their console trying

    I am comfortable with my soldering skills as I have been repairing DS lite power switches and shoulder buttons for quite some time now. I just havent seen a guide as easy to follow as the 3ds xl guide that shows what points to connect to. Something that links to the software would be wonderful too. (Pc and raspberry pi methods both welcome)

    Hey, not that I'm trying to hijack the thread but, have you guys seen anything about the New Nintendo 3DS NAND MOD?
    Thx!

    N3DS XL has a pinout, it's up on 3dbrew, but the standard n3DS does not, the one on 3Dbrew is incorrect, still need to find a valid clk point

    Hmmm!
    So it's already "possible" to do NAND dumps in the N3DS XL version?
    Cool!

    Nah! I'd probably buy an Australian one, swap guts with my black USA and sell the black (for a lower price) as Eur.
    I just sold 3 Australian very quickly here today in less than 6 hours!

    EDIT: Of course I'd give my warranty just like I did with the other 3 I just sold.(I have a service & repair little business here)
