    I just bought myself a 9.8 firmware N3DS limited edition mh4u. What's the best plan of attack and downgrade this baby?

    Should I use safesysupdater and update 9.8 to 10.3 first since people say it's most stable firmware to start downgrading from?

    And does browserhax work with 9.8 firmware?

    Try to downgrade from 9.8. It works for me. But if it fails, you are on 10.5...
    I format my sd card first. It is your choice.

    Updating would probably not be any safer than downgrading on 9.3+ so I think it's best to save yourself the additional risk and downgrade directly from 9.8.

    I asked this elsewhere and told it wasn't possible but can you get a NAND rip before downgrading for a potential hardmod in case there is a failure? My understanding is this isn't possible with just homebrew and you need to be on 9.2, but if there is a way I'd definitely like to take advantage of that.

    You can backup it, but this will need a hardmod.

    This. You can get a NAND backup from a 9.3+ system, but you have to do the hardmod first, then you can read the NAND with your computer and make a copy. It's never a bad idea to get a hardmod, it's just a pain to do yourself (esp. if you have shaky hands like me). Unfortunately, as far as I know, that's the only way for 9.3+.
