    Better buy a brand new 2DS, most, if not all of the old bundle ones are under firmware 9.2

    They will just have downgrading first, and for 10.1 and lower.
    All 3DS users will get a downgrading method, soon or later.

    that's exactly what I did. get any brand new 2DS except Yo-Kai Watch bundles. my MK7 bundle came with 6.0.0-12U.

    if you particularly want to use emulators, though, definitely get a New 3DS.

    I shouldn't have updated my n3DS to 10.3. But mah eShop.
    Well, better dust off that "patience".

    if I'm reading it correctly, "memchunkhax2" will allow for downgrading the system as well.

    Yes it will, but it'll come later than snshax.

    Questions:

    1. Since ntrcardhax is hardware based exploit, can it be patched?

    2. What can we do after we calculate AES key of the console?

    1. Yes, because the vulnerability is in the ARM9 kernel.

    Same here! That's what I'm worried about the most. I don't want to ruin my O3DS by downgrading.

    If you're not voluntarily stupid it should be fine.

    Bootrom isn't messed with, firmware0 has a hax payload put into it, since it fails the hash check firmware1 is put into memory and, since its smaller, the hax payload stays in memory and is (hopefully) executed... Also one of the keys in NAND is replaced so firm0 and 1 decrypt to garbage

    EDIT: I believe it's also not just N3DS that can do it

    Only the N3DS can do it, because only the N3DS has that arm9loader modification.
