    Ain't that written big enough ? It would have taken something like 35 seconds of your time to find this.

    There is currently no mainstream method of downgrading from 10.5. While there are murmurings of possible ways to downgrade from 10.5 and 10.4, these ways require a hard-modded 3DS. This hard-mod is a direct, soldered, connection from your 3DS's IO connectors to a USB port. Without the hard-mod, no downgrade is possible.

    Even so, this method is still very experimental as it requires users to flash a lower version of FIRM to their sysnand, which can brick your system if done improperly.

    The only other way that you could downgrade would be to have a NAND backup from 9.2 and a hard-mod. Then, you could flash any NAND to your device whenever you wanted.
