    Hey GBATemp!
    Here is a way to downgrade your old 3ds if you have 10.4, 10.5 or 10.6 to 9.2. You do not need hardmod!

    Things you'll need:

    - SD Card 4gb+
    - Homebrew
    - A PC

    Method:
    1.
    Download the following
    - https://goo.gl/d5z1OT (Downgrade files. Download the correct region)
    - https://mega.nz/#!o0smHCLS!XRs8QJx5Ew3GqQua5-xz0Oupzv_B5hUremE3o6QTYVY (SysUpdater)
    - https://github.com/d0k3/EmuNAND9/releases (EmuNand 9)
    2. Paste the downgrade 'updates' folder into the root of the SD Card
    3. Paste everything from the EmuNand download into the root of the SD Card
    4. Paste the SysUpdater files into the 3ds folder inside the SD Card
    5. Eject the SD Card and put it into the 3ds
    6. Boot the 3ds and open Homebrew by using Ninjhax or any other method
    7. Open SysUpdater and click 'Y' for downgrade
    8. It should start to downgrade
    9. When finished click 'B' to reboot the system and you should have downgraded your 3ds to 9.2!

    You should now have a downgraded 3ds. If any problems ask me and I will try and answer as fast as possible.

    Good Luck!

    Why would you link a well known and excellent downgrade tutorial in your own tutorial?

    Well, it is a workaround that allows for linking to the downgrade packeges as the links are on the other tutorial page and not directly linked to on GBAtemp as it is against the rules to directly link copyrighted content.

    There are already other guides to downgrade 10.4 and higher firmware 3ds'. This is a redundant thread

    I guess the more threads about downgrading that exist the easier it will be to find a tutorial when searching for one.

    ^This
    I would rather see a whole page of tutorials, each written in their author's own perspective, which helps as each guide can tailored for different people
    Rather than..
    Pages of people who are stuck or bricked from following some tutorial on youtube, reddit, or 4chan as they were not able to ask here when they got stuck or confused and ended up bricked.
