    I think can we make custom recovery like cwm or twrp on android phones?
    This custom recovery may helpful for bricks.

    You can only recover via hardware flashed nand backup which means you previously had to be on 9.2 to get the necessary backup. That excludes most people who attempted the downgrade this week.

    You can't just write recovery software to nand since everything is sign-checked at boot. It's not an open platform like android.

    That would require knowledge on the programing of the Nintendo OS used on the consoles, witch is closed sourced and unlike Android witch has its core is open source
    The nature of Open source allows us to go deep into it and know how its programmed etc, not like Nintendo

    So answering your idea : NOT GONNA HAPPEN ( unless there is a leak in the source code even then it would be extremely hard to implement)

    I know what you mean and that would be so cool but the problem is that the 3ds doesn't have an actual recovery for another one to be installed..
    The thing we call "recovery" is just a way to update the 3ds without entering system settings in case we can't.

    Okay, I am understanding. You can close this threat. Also thank you for your answers.

    You're right, I'm still so used to the old rules. :shy:
    With 10.3 backup you'd be fine since it's exploitable now.

    what does an exploit have to do with it? hardware flasher ---> read NAND ---> write back when something (downgrade) went wrong.
