    "The latest version as well as a good tutorial can be found here. (this links to latest version, with Steveice's changes)

    Changes has been made by Steveice so that nobody shoud experience a full brick again (i.e. the 3DS doesn't boot, even in safe mode). Thus, this version should be almost brick-proof.

    Menuhax users will have to remove their extdata folders 00000082 (JAP), 0000008f (US), 00000098 (EUR), after downgrading.

    By the way, I've deleted my sysUpdater fork repo on purpose."

    For O3ds only, right? Does this apply to n3ds?

    I mean, I see a comment from TuxSH saying

    "Works or N3DSes, but chances of bricking are said to be nonnegligible."

    If you are on 10.2 or 10.3 you can skip this step.

    I'm confused, is there a new sysupder, or is Julian the latest one?

    my friend updated his 9.x N3ds to 10.3 but i have a copy of his nand.bin
    is there a way to use that with these new downgrade methods to make it easier? or is it only useful if you use a hardmod/nandflash

    This is why I wait after something new but unstable is released.

    So, that means I can [probably] safely attempt this on my 9.9 N3DSXL? Or is it still bricking often for N3DS users?

    In the IOSU
    This... is it safer or still risky?

    I downgraded my 10.3E N3DS to 9.2E with it. First try, no black screens, no errors.

    You will brick if you use nand.bin from a console other than your own.

    i know that , thats not what i asked
    my console is fine on 9.2 sysnand
    my friend updated to 10.3 after i told him not to
    but i have a copy of his nand.bin so will that make it any easier for me to downgrade his console? or is that just useful for dong a nand flash with a hardmod?
    was there a way to flash a nand.bin without a hardmod from a nand.bin backup before this or is there now a method to that?

    So do I, no attempts result in anything different. What FW are you on? I'm on 9.9.0.
    When it eventually did do more than a blackscreen, says my files are invalid even though it's the same checksum as the one people say to use.
