Can I uninstall CFW later down the road?

    Usually after a while, I give my little brother my stuff. Last time I gave him a modded PS3, it was bricked a week later even though I deleted most of the things required to even access MultiMan or Cobra (not going to explain if you don't know what it is). I specifically told him to ask me before he does anything that's he's not sure of, but I can't stay mad at him. He loves games.

    So is there a way to uninstall? For example Reinand, Pasta, or the RxTools CFW. If this is the wrong section, I'm sorry. Also google'd and searched here already.

    CFW are not really installed in the system, they are files in your SD card that you run everytime you want to use them, so to "uninstall" a CFW there is nothing else other than delete the files.

    As long as you don't modify anything in the system NAND itself you could even just format the SD card.

    rxTools is an example that doesn't need you to mess anything other than the SD card.

    No clue. I literally asked him the same thing. I don't care for it anymore though.

    And thanks guys. Just double checking everything.

    There really aren't many brick risks with the 3DS, maybe if you try to update or downgrade yur system without following a tutorial since that's writting in the NAND is the only thing.

    But the worst thing a clueless brother could do with your system is update it, (which you would need a hard mode to revert it).

    I thought updating system NAND officially through the Internet didn't do anything except remove the ability of using cfw.... Obviously updating past 9.2

    You only get bricked when you try update or modify system when in rxmode (as oppose to dev mode) or similar

    By updating of course I meant manually, not through the internet.

    1. format sd, *remove cfw files
    2. format system *remove themehax if 9.2 and profile exploit if 4.x
    3. update to latest sysnand * removes all public hax

    clean as a whistle.
