    I am on the process of downgrading my n3DSXL 11.1 and it I am on part "VIII."

    It says to copy the contents of the firmware zip onto the dgTool on the root of the SD card but I don't know where I could find the firmware zip nor where it is.

    Can you help me on that step and maybe a bit more?

    1. Go here
    2. Use ctrl+f or f3
    3. Type: firmware
    4. Go to the 4th thing it finds
    5. There should be a bunch of links, click the one applicable to you. If you need help choosing, just say so.

    Can you help me with where I should put the file I downloaded on the SD card?

    1. Create a folder called dgTool on your second 3ds's sd card root.
    2. Unzip firmware.zip and place the contents in dgTool.

    it doesn't download a firmware.zip, just a "11.1.0_to_10.4.0_n3ds.zip" file containing firm104_NEW.bin and firm111_NEW.bin

    My mistake then. I haven't done this myself. I wanted to stress it should be unzipped, and it seems you've done that.
    Just put firm104_NEW.bin and firm111_NEW.bin in dgTool and you'll be fine.
