    Has they're been any updates on downgrading of CFW? I don't wanna have to buy anything physical to open anything up. It's asking me to update now so I figured i'd ask here and see if there's an easier solution to getting cfw working for backups.

    Yes, you can downgrade to 9.2 and then either stop there and just use cfw via menuhax and emunand or go further and install a9lh which requires several more steps (downgrading to 2.1, dumping otp.bin, then restoring 9.2). In either case just follow this guide. If you don't want a9lh then stop after Part 3 (rednand).

    Note that you will need to buy either Cubic Ninja, Ocarina of Time + Powersaves, or a Sky3DS but you won't have to open anything up.

    Can't use browserhax on that version so the only option is to buy something physical.

    I will look into getting power saves for the 3DS. Thank you.

    But seriously, do you have a friend with a 3DS at 10.5 or lower? Someone who hasn't used theirs in a couple of months perhaps?

    You don't even need to really hack it. You just need to install HBL and use the browser, and you're in business for OoTHax.

    I assume you already have a physical copy of Ocarina of Time then? If not, then the US/Canada version can be had for about $30 CAD as they recently did a rerelease and didn't bother to patch oo3dhax. Just go here and click "buy physical"

    I'm planning on buying a power saves pro today.



    Is this guide good to use? I have difficulty following written instructions so I figured a video may be better.


    btw is this just to downgrade or to have the ability to add backups/ds games/emulators ect,

    I went and got my powersaves but i'm still confused. When the guy in the video loads the files he selects "browserhax" does it matter which one I choose? and is this just for the downgrading process?

    P.S: Can I play online with this?
