    I'm not planning on running any exploits on my current 3DS systems, but would it be safe to downgrade the New 3DS?

    The New 3DS came preinstalled with a more recent(?) firmware, and has slight changes to the OS, such as digital enabling of wireless communications, amiibo/NFC and face tracking, which might be lost

    It's fine as long as you use the New 3ds downgrade files.

    Thought so, but could you downgrade far enough to install CIA files

    Edit - Nvm, just noticed those 9.2.0 files

    The linked guide provides step-by-step instructions for getting your 3DS setup to run homebrew and game CIA files.

    If you stop at the end of Part 3, your system will be on SysNAND 9.2, and the latest EmuNAND running Luma3DS CFW (You will need to launch EmuNAND through HBL, as the guide says). This isn't as stable or reliable as a9lh, but is an option if you don't want to go all the way through for one reason or another. The recommended method is follow the guide completely, and install a9lh with Luma3DS CFW running on SysNAND.

    Thanks for the help!
    I'm relatively new to the 3DS homebrew scene, and emuNAND and CTGP-7 is tempting me to jump in
