    Hi,

    I just bricked my sister's N3DS while downgrading to 2.1.
    I have a Raspberry Pi 2. Is it possible to hard mode using it? If so, can I use it the same way as a Gateway brick?

    Thanks!

    Raspberry pi is unnecessary for downgrade bricks for those you simply need to do the hardmod plug it into your computers SD reader and restore a nand backup you may have to get a compatible reader if it doesnt work with your default one but for o3ds user's the majority of readers work in my experience

    well actually the raspberry pi not needed for any bricks other than gateway brick code bricks

    You don't need electronic hardware to restore a NAND.

    You can try to make yourself the hardmod or contact me to install a micro USB connectivity which enables you to restore power to the NAND leisure in the case of future other bricks (take a look on my signature).

    Warning, if you fail to solder CLK point (CLK point torn), your motherboard will be permanently out of order.
