    Hello,

    Is there a guide to Guide to downgrade N3DS from 10.7 to 9.2? I'm in the process of setting up my o3DS so that I can downgrade my N3DS XL from 11 to 10.7, and someone said that 10.7 is "exploitable" and so I can downgrade it to 9.2. How exactly do I do that?

    Thanks,
    Nils

    I did this and it just resulted in a bunch of youtube videos in French.

    How easy is it to play games off the SD card rather than using a flashcard? Can I play games off the SD card on 10.7? If thats the case, I just might sell my gateway flashcard and play off the SD.

    If you do DSiware downgrade & install A9LH by following @wiiu more like pee u link, you will be able to play pirate games from SD card whatever your console version is.

    I'm stuck in this step from the guide:

    Section IV - ctr-httpwn
    3. Launch the homebrew launcher on the device using Homebrew Launcher (No Browser)

    I click that link, and apparently the only way I can launch the homebrew on the N3DS at this point is through a no browser exploit. I have Zelda OOT 3DS, but the guide here makes absolutely no sense to me:

    https://github.com/yellows8/oot3dhax

    I found this guide here on GBA temp, but it still makes no sense to me. It asks me to launch the Homebrew Launcher when its not on my main menu at all!

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-install-oot3dhax.396339/

    I'm clueless at where I'm supposed to put the oot3dhax on my SD card. Neither links I posted here say anything about where I'm supposed to put that file.

    gateway is still very useful for cheats and roms.

    I completed the guide to get homebrew on my old 3DS, which I need to downgrade my N3DS from 11.0 to 10.7. Now I'm on this exact part of DSIware downgrade guide:

    https://plailect.github.io/Guide/dsiware-downgrade
    Section IV - ctr-httpwn
    3. Launch the homebrew launcher on the device using Homebrew Launcher (No Browser)

    I just put the launcher.zip on the SD card of my N3DS, and the guide is saying I need to do some sort of exploit using OoT to get homebrew to launch on the N3DS.

    I'm not on 10.7 yet. Was hoping to be there by now. My N3DS is on 11.0 and I need to downgrade to 10.7.

    1) you aren't downgrading to 10.7, you're downgrading to a 10.4 NFIRM.
    2) if you're on 11.0, buy legends of exidia on your 11.0 n3DS and wait for slowhax on december 27th. its not worth the hassle when you can just do slowhax

    EDIT: why'd you delete your post lol

    OK, I get what the guide need you to do. Look like you have to run ctr-httpwn before you can do system transfer.
    So, you need another exploit such as OOT3Dhax to run ctr-httpwn on target 3DS. OOT3D should be easy to find.

    I edited my post, didn't delete it. The guide I'm going through said to buy legends of exidia on my O3DS, not the new one, so thats what I did. I just need to figure out how to to get this OOT3Dhax to work. I have the OOT3Dhax files. I'm clueless because none of the guides I found OOT3Dhax are written in plain English.

    Using your source 3DS (Your O3DS) to install it from Homebrew launcher. Every HB starter kit should come with it.
    The name of the Homebrew is "sploit_installer_oot3dhax".

    Okay, so that installs the hacked save file into OOT3D, and then after I install that hacked save file in the O3DS, I open the hacked file in my N3DS and it opens homebrew?
