    So I bought a n3ds online and unfortunately have seen that 8.1j is hard to get to 9.2j firmware without some complicated measures. Right now I'm not entirely sure where to start with it.

    Its the browser-less version 8.1j, where can I start with trying to get it to 9.2j? do I upgrade to 10.5 and then downgrade or has an easier method been made since all I can find is posts from mid last year.

    I also have a 2ds on 9.6 us firmware if that helps at all. I'm sorry if this post has been asked about before but I seem to lack being able to search for it properly.

    Hell
    you cant downgrade from 10.x, your best bet is finding a copy of cubic ninja and a game that can update to 10.3 or below, or using gateway to update to 9.0-9.2

    edit: jpn copy of cubic ninja or jpn oot (you will need another ds, any region will do since you just need homebrew to inject the save)

    edit 2: you cant downgrade from 10.4+, idk where the x came from

    The 9.6,you can try downgrade to 9.2 using sysupdater after you get homebrew running on it

    Set up a private server to upgrade 8.1J to 9.1J.

    I don't have either at the moment as I can't find a reasonably priced version of either.

    I've looked into it but it also requires cubic ninja to install NTR debugger, Is there anyway to get cubic ninja loaded from a rom? like a cheaper flashcard than sky3ds?

    just get a 2nd hand blue or red card from someone for cheap, someone should sell it for less than $40.

    I'm assuming you're talking about gateway blue/red cards? Sorry If I'm mistaken.

    sky3ds red button = rev1
    sky3ds blue button = rev2
    sky3ds orange buttons = rev3

    if you can't afford a sky3ds, find a game that has 10.3 or below from 3dsdb and do the downgrade method.

    That won't help if he needs the browser to set up menuhax. All game card updates do not contain the browser update file

    If you want to brick your 8.1J, please go for this idea.

    You can always invest in a cheap Japanese 3ds game that allows you to update to 9.2. It's safer

    No 9.0-9.2J exist.
