It is not a good alternate method, it is not the recommended method, it is not a safe method. Mind YOUR own business and let people follow a guide that has ways of avoiding a brick pretty much everywhere, even if One Click Setup fails. If you try and downgrade to 2.1 on sysNAND and it fails, your 3DS is screwed. If you do one click setup and it fails, you only go back to OTPHelper where you can restore NAND backups easily. Nobody needed your two cents.Does it? If it does then fine yeah its good, and stop trying to act all high and mighty, I have been coming to gbatemp for atleast 4-5 years I have been following the 3ds hacking scene development since it was in its infancy, I swear people can't have their opinions on this site since the 3ds scene blew up all you butthurt people have taken over this site which used to be great, I am in no way giving out misinformation, I am just highlighting a f***** alternate method to downgrading so mind your own business if you can't handle other peoples opinions.
