    Just picked up my pre-order for zero time dilemma before realizing i'll need newer firmware to play it. i'm a little worried about downgrading but the only guides i'm finding are for just that. that being said what is my best method for playing this game:

    1. Use my original 3dsxl at firmware 7 (I think rx tools is on it but cant seem to get it to work) That has an emunand i forgot how to access anymore or

    2. downgrade a origional 3ds with firmware 10.3 following this guide on github: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-2-(9.2.0-Downgrade)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as i'm jonesing to play my game.

    Downgrading was really easy for me. I'd downgrade if I were you.

    I recommend you A9LHax both. On the one you wish to downgrade though, I recommend you format prior to doing so, to avoid any softbricks.

    I have the same problem, the .3ds file stalls in the loadup screen.

    I am using a 3dsXL with 8.1 firmware in the system settings.

    Using gateway cards, installed years ago with the blue card-red card method, using a microSD with roms on it now.

    What would be the best method for me to try without risking a softbrick?
