    Can someone explain me how the DSiware downgrade works with another 3ds on cfw?

    currently i have a 3ds with gateway card and a 2ds which i wanna downgrade but all the guide which i have see is sooo confusing and hard for me cause i am a noob so its hard for me to understand what to do in it

    And is there and exploit coming where i dont have to have a 3ds with cfw right? please let me know

    That should work. Have you seen the guide I linked? If so, what confuses you about it?

    Edit:

    What is the sysnand fw of your 3DS with gateway? It looks like you're going to want to install a9lh on your 3ds before you continue with the dsi downgrade for your 2ds.

    The guide they linked you to is the simplest form. If you don't understand any of it, tbh, you really shouldn't mess with it. The guide holds your hand the entire process. We won't be able to do that. That's the only guide people are going to link you to. Sorry.

    I don't mind helping you figure out what some steps mean, but you can't expect me to rewrite the entire guide. Surely you have to understand some of it.

    Like do you even know what firmware your sysnand is on?

    Note that you have to actually purchase Fieldrunners/Legends of Exidia from the eShop on your CFW 3DS. Using a pirated form of the game (from FreeShop, for example) will not work.

    No, it has to be a legit copy from the eShop.

    This method does require a system transfer. Are you intending to move the account on the 3DS over to the 2DS or do you want to return it after?

    If you want to return it, then I would suggest backing up the NaND and any saves, then formatting it so you can make a new account just for Field Runners.

    This way, you can format again after the transfer and sign back in instead of waiting a week to transfer back.

    If you do intend to move the account, you could probably ignore this post
