    Wouldn't you like to know?
    So my friend accidentally updated my n3ds from 9.2.0 t0 10.7 and I've lost access to homebrew. I had reiNAND cfw set up and a few games installed. I plan to get a physical copy of Zelda oot3d, but first I want to know this. After I use homebrew to downgrade, will my emuNAND data still be there? (all games, saves, and fc's)

    Yes, of course it will.

    Did he intentionally update to 10.7? I'd imagine, at least with Menuhax/A9LH activated, it'd be hard to get to sysNAND and update anyways.

    The downgrading happens on the SysNAND, not EmuNAND. As long as you don't re-setup the EmuNAND, it should be fine.

    Lol no, he just didn't hold L on boot, and it well downhill from there. I also don't have A9LH, I was always scared to go through with it.

    Gambia, The
    You are using a N3DS. There should be the possibility to use SmashHax to get access to Homebrew. You can use the Demo from the eshop.

    Set Menuhax up to autoboot without holding L.

    What Sonic_Cee_Dee said. Better yet, set it to something that will be difficult to trigger by accident. When I hacked one of my cousin's 3DS (he's still a kid) I set menuhax to boot unless L+R+A+B+X+Y are held. That way there's no way he can get into sysNAND and update it (except, AuReiNAND boots into sysNAND if L or R are held so that kind of ruins that... I didn't put firmware90.bin on SD so at least the L button won't let him boot into sysNAND)

    Not the demo version anymore, no SD card access I believe.

    Download a distribution of Linux (say, Kali because it comes with aircrack-ng), create a bootable flash drive using Rufus 2.7 and a simple USB flash drive. Set boot mode to legacy and you can choose to boot from "usb mass storage device", at least, that's what I do, you may require different/additional steps. Once you've booted Linux, follow the set up for Smashbroshax as per usual.

    I'd recommend Ubuntu if it's your first time

    Yes, I used to have it set up that way, though I'm not sure if it's possible if you're running windows 10. (havent tried yet)
    Edit: If you're just using it for smash hax, create a bootable usb, and install it on a usb. Then you can just boot into it when the usb is plugged in

    You can. I triple boot Windows 10, Ubuntu MATE 16.04 and Kali on a Dell Inspiron.

    You shouldn't be scared. Most bricks are user error, and the process is much easier now.
    While it may take a while, it's worth it.
