    I admit I haven't really kept up with the 3DS scene, since I already had a Sky3DS, but the recent block of Sky3DS (I already know about the +) coupled with the ability to downgrade prompted me to do so.

    Well I got that out of the way and I believe it worked, my system tools say I'm on 9.2, but I'm honestly at a loss as to what to do next. I see a lot of terms thrown around like rxTools, emuNAND/sysNAND, etc. I'm not going to pussyfoot around. I want to install .cias for games I don't own and play them. How do I get to there from here?

    I don't need a step by step guide, but a roadmap would be nice. Like, first install that, then install this, then do that. I can research the specifics of those myself, I'm just at a loss as to where to start. I have the SD cards, a Sky3DS, and the aforementioned N3DS on 9.2. What now?

    I used Ninjhax with Sky3DS and followed this guide: https://gbatemp.net/threads/simple-guide-to-downgrading-your-3ds.407888/

    It took a couple tries to get it to work but in the end it was successful. Just make sure you follow every step carefully. If you don't have access to ninjhax you'll have to use a different method like browserhax/ironhax, but I can't really help you with those.

    Sooner is better, the reason I jumped now was because once 10.4 drops if you get a softbrick you're done. I didn't get one, but I figure the process is pretty well mapped out at this point and as safe as it's going to be, and I didn't want to miss out like I did when I first got my N3DS and had to update it to system transfer from my old 3DS.

    use browserhax to set up menuhax/emunand. then use reinand since they now support 10.3 emunand, unlike rxtools.
