    No you can't downgrade from 11.3 yet, unless you have a9lh and a 11.2 NAND backup.

    The exploit was fixed by Nintendo?

    The method used to downgrade 11.2 (fasthax+safehax) was patched by Nintendo.

    I knew it. Can I use "Downgrade NFIRM with DSiWare and a second 3DS (which already has CFW)" ?

    No. We can't downgrade from 11.3 yet. AT ALL.

    Not just that, since Home Menu also get patch to require lastest NFIRM.
    The old route (9.2 Downgrade using Old NFIRM) is dead too.
    Also, From the look of Homebrew payload creator, they also patch that make it's hard to create new payload.
    So, 11.3 may be a deadend.

    Until sighax come, the current state is dead end. And since I don't know when or will it come out.
    I think assuming "may be" is correct enough.

    Downgrading from 11.3 is likely dead until sighax is implemented and released. At that point, hardmod (and DSiWare, probably) should be valid paths for installing it.

    Otherwise, it would require, at minimum, a new ARM11 kernel exploit and a new ARM9 exploit.

    Agree. The new exploit will be harder and more harder to find.
    With the lastest patch, I think we can assume that 11.3 is likely dead for hack.

    And if nobody could find new exploits or sighax never release, yup, that's is a dead end like Vita 3.6.1

    Not really, sighax requires a way to write to NAND, unless 11.3 magically made the NAND read-only you could install sighax via hardmod.

    Yeah? That's what I said. My "otherwise" was for a method not involving a hardmod or DSiWare.

    The way you worded it made it sound like hardmod isn't a plausible way yet.

    It's not because sighax isn't publicly released.

    Currently if you updated to 11.3 and WANTED TO HACK YOUR 3DS, you don't even deserve CFW and you'd probably brick your device by trying to install it. Like, no 3DS in stores today are on 11.3, so if you updated you a.dont want cfw or b.you're retarded
