    I am not responsible for any damages that may happen to your 3DS, or provide any support, I am only posting/sharing this information for the public.
    This could brick your 3DS, so proceed at your own risks.

    Hardmod is recommended in case anything happens, as this is still fairly new and early stages.

    Apparently you can downgrade from 10.4/10.5/10.6 without a hardmod.

    **NOTE: 10.6 requires a pay entry point (OOTHAX or Cubic Ninja)**

    Memchunkhax3 makes it possible to downgrade NATIVE_FIRM 10.4 to downgrade on BOTH OLD AND NEW 3DS!

    https://www.reddit.com/r/3dshacks/comments/49ix2n/downgrade_from_105106_is_now_possible_on_o3ds/

    Confirmed working by a few users so far. (Reddit)

    Looks legit.

    I would probably add a disclaimer saying you should have a hardmod before trying it. It's a bit early for random O3DS users to just go in and expect things to work perfectly.

    Yes, several people have tested and successfully downgraded their O3DS from 10.4+ to 9.2.
    It uses svchax, yes.

    So pretty much get the sysupdater from the reddit post and the the 9.2 update files and you are set maybe. Assuming this also works on 9.3 to 10.3 also.

    No point risking this on <10.4 in case you're not doing it for science. The other method is more tested on <10.4, so just to be safe.

    svchax does not work on 9.3-10.3 yet afaik. Use the old sysUpdater for that.

    This will not work on n3ds, as it uses svchax. Watch this thread for updates on svchax.

    Yeah, there's been one confirmed softbrick and one the person never reported back when we told them to take out the SD card.

    The brick rate should be about the same as memchunkhax 2, as it is the same thing but on the GPU rather than the CPU.
