    Im still on Firmware10.3 for my new 3DS and have been using Ironhax. Is it worth downgrading? I only use the Homebrew for the themes,emulators and also Save Data Backup of my Pokemon carts so I can use PKhex.

    Wouldn't mind getting into the Badge thing either. Any help is appreciated:)

    If you make an emuNAND (after downgrading) then yeah you'll be able to access the e-shop without any problems.
    You can backup your physical carts the same way you do it now.

    I hope that i resolved some of your questions. :)


    P.S emuNAND = a clone of the 3ds system but it's running from the sd card

    Yes, it is worth it. Just be sure to read the guides very carefully and make sure you get the right files for your console. After you downgrade, create an emunand and then you can update your emunand to whatever the last version is. If you don't downgrade now you'll probably have to wait a ling time before you can downgrade again.

    You're going to want to use menuhax in order to use a bootloader, which that guide covers. That'll allow you to boot directly into EmuNAND with CFW.

    I've heard Ironhax won't run on 9.2, but you can launch the homebrew launcher another way.
    And you could also install yellows8's homebrew launcher cia and have the homebrew launcher on your home menu. And you could also use browserhax.

    If you use OOTHAX,can you still use save data backup for other cart games?

    Yes, but again, you're gonna want menuhax since it allows autobooting.

    What I meant is that if you are running a version ABOVE 10.3 you won't be able to downgrade for a long time. As of now, there is no reason to stay in 10.3, either downgrade to 9.2 or update to the latest firm. Of course you can have the best of both worlds and downgrade your sysNAND to 9.2 and have your emunand on 10.5

    Why don't you launch gateway through your browser and use gateway's nand backup tool?

    Ive launched Browserhax I think. Ive used this tutorial https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutoria...luding-emunand-coldboot-cia-installer.405589/ and now I'm at this part :Enter Homebrew Launcher via Browser again and start EmuNAND9. Now create a NAND backup by navigating to EmuNAND Manager Options and Dump SysNAND to NAND.bin.

    Only I keep getting a red and black flashing screen before it goes back to the Homebrew menu:/

    Use browserhax to set up menuhax, then run EmuNAND9 from HBL from menuhax

    Also make sure you have all the files you need for EmuNAND9 to run, which are included in EmuNAND9's .zip

    EDIT: Wait, wait. Have you even downgraded yet? This program doesn't work properly unless your sysnand is already on 9.2 or lower firmware.
