    Well I bought a old 3ds motherboard on firmware 6.6 (Demo 3ds but hopefully it will work :/). I was gonna then do the stuff to get cfw on it and dsi downgrade it onto my new 3ds xl.

    idk if DSi downgrade will work from a demo 3ds - can the demo 3ds download official eshop apps?

    I think it will work.
    If it does not work, as a last ditch effort you could hard mod the demo 3ds and maybe write a non-demo nand to it. Not sure about that though.

    Hopefully, I'll have to see what it's capable in about -- *checks shipping time* --a week. Can it not ship faster :cry:

    The whole point of buying it was so that I wouldn't need to hardmod :/

    I mean if it doesn't work, the motherboard wouldn't be much help to you and hard modding wouldn't be as big of a risk. You don't have to

    Hmm, if the 3ds couldn't download things becuase it was the "demo" 3ds, Would a cart update do anything?

    potentially, but idk if it would even allow updates. May not even have a home menu and just boot games directly.IE so an employee wouldn't steal it.

    I don't really know, but I am pretty sure it should work (I don't think Nintendo would want to make many modifications to the demo firmware).

    Oh well it's all speculation. Last resort is that I wait for slowhax, downgrade my friends 3ds and then downgrade mine.
