    My 3DS version is 11.3.0-36U. It does not have CFW, but I do have the Homebrew Launcher installed on it via SoundHax. Is it possible to downgrade to 3DS (and if possible, safety) in order to get CFW?

    Will sighax be able to eventually give me CFW, or is it impossible now?

    You can't, and soundhax or HBL are not installed on your 3DS

    Yes it will

    Well, you know what I mean by "installed." Thanks for helping, though.

    Sighax requires an arm9 exploit still to actually install. Your best bet is it wait for an arm9 exploit and arm11 exploit to run it.

    Road to 11.3 CFW :

    1) Find a 11.3 ARM11 userland exploit (Done. SoundHaxx)
    2) Find a 11.3 ARM11 Kernel exploit (Done. But not released, wait.)
    3) FInd a 11.3 ARM9 "Userland" Exploit (no info yet)

    Sighax can also be installed via hardmod, no exploit required.

    yeah, but kinda risky, and there's no easy way to patch a firmware binary to exploit the sighax vuln

    This forum might help regarding sighax, and further updates on it.

    It's also furtherly explained, in a somewhat simplistic way.

    How would it be risky since if you have a hardmod you can just make a full backup before trying to install the hacked FIRM. Of course, that is assuming boot9 only has to be dumped once and is not system specific like OTP is.

    Without an ARM9 exploit you won't be anywhere close to cfw.
    Just sell your console and buy a new one on 11.2 or below

    I don't think it is a fair deal. You should buy one from a store most (if not all) should still be on 11.2
