    If you are currently on 9.2 or below AND you have previously made a backup of your system firmware then yes

    If you are on >9.2 at the moment AND you have previously made a backup of your system firmware then you will need to hardmod the 3DS and flash it back directly to the nand chip

    Otherwise unfortunately no.

    I mean the FW that was incluided when I bought it, by rule, that firmware should be in the recovery system.

    There is no downgrading when formatting the system or using whatever recovery system you're talking about. I hope you made a NAND backup, because that's the only way to go back.

    No. There is no magical recovery mechanism.

    Not "magical" if you have some basics of engineering...
    Don't write if you don't know.

    Sure you can restore factory settings, but if you had already updated your firmware, it will revert to stock factory settings using that firmware.

    If you had updated, that "recovery" will be overwritten with the updated firmware and the previous firmware that was on there will be replaced..

    you kidding me? if you seem to have engineer experience than have at it. Never have I seen a gaming system have the "original" firmware saved anywhere. Once you update to the latest available there's no going back.

    Only way is if you made a backup, not to mention this is yrs in the making and SURPRISINGLY if there were a way I'm sure the 3ds dev's would have found it by now.

    That basics of engineering may be applied on industrial devices but not on gaming device.
    Who does not know anything is not I but you.

    Would have been nice to have an emergency non flashable bootstrap section for the 3DS. then even if there was a brick, place the SD card in the unit with the firmware and voila...

    I think if it was possible to go back without a backup then someone would have worked out how in the 4 years of the 3DS being available and ~3 years of it being hacked.

    Since these threads aren't going to stop anytime soon, I figured we might as well get some entertainment out of them.
    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... the GBATemp 3DS section bingo card.

    EDIT: That said I hope this post doesn't get misconstrued as mean-spirited or anything. I'm all for helping people in need but always in the respective thread.

    You can reverse engineer it with your vastly knowledge and let us know when you find it Don Ramon :O

    I have yet to hear of any console/handheld that keeps a spare recovery of the original OS.

    This may be good reading, The bootloader system on 3DS has been gone through with a fine tooth comb

    To be fair this was possible on the PSP via a Pandora Battery. On the other hand were this possible on 3DS, firmware wouldn't be such an issue.

    That's the beauty of this place. You can tell us what to do and no one will listen to it!

    about the possibility of previous fw version stored somewhere inside 3ds nand, you can cross that out, people already has access to 3ds nand via harmod, from reading and dumping it, if there's any, they must have found it. they also able write any fw to nand, but the encryption is the one which stop them.
