    2: If i softbrick, can i use any DNS to update to 10.3 again?
    3: If i hard brick what are my options?

    1:Use whatever cfw you feel like using. Right now there's rxTools, cakes and reiNand. Each one has it's things.
    2:Afaik, no. I suspect some advanced trickery could be done, but not worth it.
    3:If you don't have a Nand backup on 10.3 and a hard mod your only option is to buy a new system.

    just don't be an idiot and use the wrong update pack or shut down your 3ds in the process and you won't hard brick. basically, don't be dumb and follow the tutorials as is, if you do there is no reason to be paranoid, i myself already downgraded my n3ds from 10.3 to 9.2 and updated again to 10.3 (i got my reasons, don't ask) and i'm a total nutjob when it comes to these things, so i'm pretty sure you'll be fine

    AFAIK even the non-safe sysUpdater is has quite a high success rate. Don't worry about it. Just make sure you get the right firmware from *that special page* and put it in the right folder :P

    The safe sysupdater has a lower hardbrick rate, just saying.

    If I recall, if you use FTPBrony, and mash B to exit it, and then use the downgrader, it improves your chances of the downgrader actually working.

    NASA works fine for me EVERYTIME, but this SafeSysUpdater seems to get fucked up everytime.
    How do I know that it is downgrading when i press Y?

    It should start telling you what titles it's installing... Also, just some advice: clear the update nag (even if you don't have it), I've seen several users (who were softbricking everytime they attempted to downgrade) get their downgrades working by clearing the update nag, or at least attempting to, even if there wasn't actually a nag...

    After a few seconds a message saying "Getting CIA file info..." should appear.

    If your update pack passes every safesysupdater check, your update pack is ok. You can safely try another sysupdater.

    There's a dedicated tutorial to do everything in this very same forum. There you can find a good version of sysupdater in the first post.

    just keep using safesysupdater. its not harming your chances in any way.

    for the update nag, follow this

    and press no.

    Aargh. Seems like it would not work for me though. Tried like 20 times.

    Decided to use the original sysUpdater.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    It froze here. Should i shut it down?

    Keep trying, i downgraded 3ds 3 , the first and second i got it in the first try, but the third i do not even know how many attempts i made until it starts .

    That's exactly what was happening with my third 3ds.
    I waited 5min if nothing happens i shut it down and tryed again, until finaly the downgrade started
