    Hello, I am going to do a DSi Downgrade using Plaicet's guide and it says that I should steel diver: subwars.

    Can I use a different method for homebrew or is it necessary.

    Not here
    You can use any entry point and it won"t cause problems as long as you don"t use BrowserHax, so you should use any entry point with the exception of BrowserHax since it can cause problems.

    If you have other entrypoints, use them. Use as many as you feel like.

    I've gotten good results from downgrading with Stickerhax.

    guys i don't know where is the updated thread for this so pls point me in the right direction.. Here's my situation:

    i was successful with hacking my ofw O3DS with OFW 2.1 and installed Luma3DS+a9lh then successfully downgraded my N3DS OFW 11.1.0.34E, if you followed the Dsiware downgrade you should have Fieldrunners and run Ironhax, somewhere in the middle of my installation the Ironhax failed and for some reason miraculously browserhax worked and i was able to continue the downgrade. One week from now, i wana downgrade my 2nd N3DS but im afraid the Ironhax might fail again so today i was able to find a brand new sealed copy of TLOZ:Ocarina of Time 3DS cartridge, how do i go about installing oot3Dhax on it for future exploit? Im not sure which thread is updated..i dont have a powersave so..any advice? many thanks guys..sorry for the long noobish post.. :)

    Were you able to link your NNID on the N3dsxl after you installed a9lh and did the system transfer from the other 3ds?

    i had a NNID on O3DS, did a system transfer to N3DS which has no NNID and my NNID got tranferred. i restored the O3DS nand but of course the NNID on it is no longer working as expected. i can't be bothered to do a system format on the thing right now as i've spent 3 nights studying and implementing this hax..

    I didn't have my NNID linked on my 2DS only on my n3dsxl. I also did the system transfer from 2ds I'm wondering if I could relink the NNID to the n3dsxl after installing a9lh.

    ah, i see what you mean.. Since your 2DS has no NNID attached you could try on your N3DSXL if you could sign in using that same NNID, go to settings or try to open eshop and download something free and it will ask you to sign in..if it gives you an error, you could always ring Nintendo and they could link the NNID back to your N3DSXL..just take note you cannot do another system transfer until after 7 days and also you cannot perform a system transfer again from N3DSXL back to 2DS due to the N3DSXL being a newer model..
