    I have successfully achieved the impossible, I've spent many months trying to crack this thing and finally after many countless nights I have sucessfully downgraded my 6.1 3DS right down to 4.4 running gateway. there's no point in me discussing the method on how to do so here, since the majority of you are all casual users and don't have a degree in computer systems engineering.

    I don't know if this method will work on systems higher than 6.1 and I'm unable to test this as I only have the one 3ds, I also know for a fact that there are still plenty of 6.1 systems on retail shelves which means there are still plenty of exploitable consoles out there, I am strongly against piracy and only run legal backups on my system and so should you (support the devs!).

    with that being said I am deciding not to release this as in doing so will probably see a exponential increase in flashcart use on the 3DS much like the previous NDS era.

    the purpose of this thread is to inform non believers (false prophets & the Chinese mafia) that it is indeed possible to downgrade the system, I may release this in the future and when i do i will most likely update this thread.


    enjoy

    Your video proves nothing. For all we know you took a Pokemon shell and put it on a 4.x 3DS.

    HAHA gamesquest1 I got ninja'd!

    if i showed the method of downgrading on screen as proof than that'll totally go against everything that i believe in regarding piracy not to mention everyone will know how to do it, your argument is invalid.



    stay mad

    So I have managed to actually fly. But since you all here are too dumb to understand I won't explain you how to do it.

    The purpose of this reply is to show science it is in fact possible to fly. I did it.

    my argument that that *proves* nothing is perfectly valid, a complete idiot could switch the motherboard from a 4.x console to a limited edition console that was 6.x by default

    Yeah we mad because we already have 4.x 3DS XL's...

    All the pic proves is that you have a regular 3DS on 4.x and a SE one.

    obviously didn't watch the vid, EVO3DS have already contacted me and made an offer for the exploit, I kindly declined as I am not a sellout :)

    I'm saying that given your track record, I would like indisputable proof.
    ...and some of do have degrees in computer engineering.

    What in heaven's name in this?

    Here's an idea. Since there is no known method to spoof the mac address of the 3ds. Show your 3ds running 6.1 and then show the mac address. Then "downgrade" your 3ds to 4.4 and show the mac address again. This way you can prove that you can really downgrade without showing us how you did it.

    It's a simple enough method of proving it. Any excuses to not do it will pretty much conclusively prove it's a hoax.

    All the video proves is you swapped the motherboards.

    That wouldn't even prove it as you can actually downgrade if you have the hardware mod but seeing as he. Virtually definitely just swapped the motherboard he probably couldn't even do.that

    yall are going to discredit me just because of my track record, lol just lol at wanting indisputable, nice try tho. like i said the purpose of this thread is to show everyone that downgrading is indeed possible, I can see why some of the well known people in the scene hate this community so much, no wonder they left and stopped posting.

    you think i did not now that you can dump an original game with gateway?
    thats not what i said,just release a serious proof,otherwise you just go.

    man,i have a 4.5 and gateway,i dont care what you said,but if you want to proof you downgrade,please do it on a serious way,on your video,i dont see anything you downgrade.
    but if thats enough for you,ok then,srry that i said something

    You don't have to show how you did it. I don't care. As I said I already have an exploitable 3DS XL (with the NAND mod I installed personally). Your proof is weak.
