    On 9.2.0-20U non-XL N3DS downgraded from 10.3U and wondering whether or not Gateway NVRAM install will result in a brick.

    I don't think it should.

    But why would you when now you can launch Gateway from Menuhax?

    I just like having more than one entrypoint. I suppose it isn't worth the brick, though, but it would be nice if we could confirm it working. (I've just shipped my hardmodded JN3DS to a new owner)

    Maybe I'll hardmod this one sometime soon

    Well, browserhax and menuhax are more than one entrypoint that you have available ;)

    I guess after those 2 the safest entrypoint you should look forward are the game entrypoints (Cubic Ninja, OOThax and Ironhax).

    OH RIGHT, I completely forgot about those for some reason: I'm not on a JP console anymore and have USA OoT/CN! Thank you for reminding me! (Although I think Ironhax is 9.5+ only?)

    I downgraded a 9.9 N3DSXL to 9.2 and installed gateway NVRAM afterwards. No problems.

    So we have N3DS users in here who downgraded? Everything went well? Did you use tutorial on Wololo?

    I have the Hyrule Gold Edition.

    Yes seems to have went well, sysUpdater only crashed once.
    What the heck is Wololo??? ...I used this one [TUTORIAL] The Simple Guide to Downgrading your 3DS and then did my own.

    It is a website mostly devoted to psp/psvita hacking/modding but they also cover other systems like the 3ds and ps4.

    Many N3DS users have succesfully downgraded their systems.

    People at wololo have taken their information from here... Not the other way around.

    MSET is just an applet. You can't brick with that alone. The only real danger with it is if you install <6.x MSET on a 2DS and then format sysnand.

    Ironhax most certainly is NOT for only 9.5 and above.

    Where do people come up with these falsehoods?

    Let me be a little more clear, I didn't mean to insnuate that anyone was "second".

    I guess I'm asking if that tut is valid or if there's a valid tut here.

    I grazed the thread titles and didn't see one.
