    I have a 2ds with RxTools CFW SysNand at 9.2 and EmuNand at 11.0, and a o3ds at SysNand 11.0.
    Is it possible for me to downgrade the o3ds without hardmodding it?

    Atm I use HomeMenuHax on my o3ds to enter HBL, and on my 2ds I use HomeMenuHax to enter CtrBootManager which can let me boot into the HBL or RxTools.

    Well yes, but the fact that they're not like o3ds & o3ds or n3ds and n3ds
    2ds and o3ds

    A 2ds is classed as an old 3ds.

    Oh shoot, so it's not possible without buying one of the Dsiware games listed on the tutorial? I just yesterday bought Pokemon Yellow on the eShop, darn.

    Sadly, you have to buy one game.
    Just buy Fieldrunners
    Also, remeber, buy it on the CFW 3DS!

    Yes I know, I'll be going out tomorrow to get a Nintendo Shop card. i have Fieldrunner's page up on the CFW 2ds rn, will keep it up while charging so I don't forget. $10 is a small price to pay to downgrade my o3ds I got yesterday :)
    From 10.4 I can go to 9.2, right?
    Also, is arm9loaderhax easy to setup? I know for certain I didn't use that when I set up my 2ds way back when for CFW. Is it possible to use the dsiware downgrade without arm9loaderhax? If not, can I easily set that up from an existing EmuNand?

    Yes, to setup arm9loaderhax, just follow this guide.
    It's very easy and quick!
    First downgrade to 9.2 https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-1-(Decrypt9)
    Then follow the rest! https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-2-(2.1.0-ctrtransfer)

    But is it required for Dsiware downgrade or is it just recommended?

    Recomended, and since it is so quick and fast(besides safe), it is required for the best 3ds hacking experience ;)

    Can I skip "Section V - Restoring 3DS #1" if I don't plan to use 3DS #1 ever again?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I don't want to go through the hassle of getting arm9loaderhax on the 2ds because I'll never use it again, but I'll use it on the o3ds i just got after it's downgraded.

    It seems dangerous to try to get arm9loaderhax on the 2ds because it's EmuNand is already setup and I don't want to screw something up.

    I would do that part even if you plan of not using it again(future proofing it).
    Besides, it doesn't take that long to restore your first 3ds

    Is it possible for me to basically wipe the 2ds and preserve the 9.2 SysNand so I can start fresh when setting up arm9loaderhax?

    Edit: I appreciate the help btw. You really know your stuff.

    Yes, when you finish downgrading to 9.2, just do a system format, if that's what you mean

    And that will keep 9.2 and remove the current CFW, so I can set up arm9loaderhax on the 2ds? (the 3ds that will be used to dsiware downgrade the o3ds I just got)

    What I plan to do once I have the Card, is:
    wipe the 2ds
    set up arm9loaderhax on it like the tutorial recommends
    use the 2ds with arm9loaderhax to downgrade my o3ds I just got
    and then use HBL to downgrade
    then set up arm9loaderhax on the o3ds once it's on 9.2

    anything I missed?

    nope, you're good.
    note that to setup arm9loaderhax you'll have to downgrade your 3ds to 2.1 and then update to 9.2(and then to 11.0) again.
    Don't worry, just follow the guide until the end and everything shall be okay! :yay3ds:
