Apologies if this was addressed but I downgraded with gateway my new (old) 3ds xl to 4.2 and I was wondering if I can just pop in my Luigi's mansion cartridge to upgrade to 4.5? Will this mess everything up? I know there is no benefit to 4.5 but I just want to know.

I downgraded but then I updated to 8.1 with super smash bros (wanted to use my cart saves) and it works fine.

Upgrading to 4.5 doesn't really do anything except...allow you to play 4.5 retail carts on sysnand

I don't follow the Karl thread since unfortunately I won't understand what's going on. Wouldn't we still need some kind of exploit? I like the ds exploit since you don't need online or any game carts. Will there be a better way?
