    I know you can't lower the firmware for 9.3+ 3DSs without a backup, I know, I know.
    I just want to know if I can backup my firmware on my current 3DS, so if something gets patched 10.2+, I can just go back to 10.1?

    You can't unless you hardmod your system

    Any specific ways to hardmod my 3DS? I mean what do I need to change in my 3DS to successfully hardmod it?

    For o3ds you can consider a system transfer to another unit with lower firmware (sysnand to emunand), otherwise there is little value to 'preserve' the newer firmware
