    The title say it all.

    For starters : I am a noob so excuse me if I posted it wrong.

    Currently I am kind of screwed by my own self, I never tried to adjust my 3ds until now but it seems it's too late as it already turned into 10.6 which itself is a headache now.

    Is there an article I can follow to downgrade it or somewhere where I can fix this ?

    Sincere,

    Fire

    PS. Excuse me if I am one of the MANY people who asked this.

    You need a hardmod if you want to downgrade from 10.6. That's your only option at the moment...

    And what is exactly hardmodding, I have tried to search a few articles about it but it never explained the basic concept of it.

    Sincere, Fire

    by dumping your 10.6, inject the 10.2 firm and then use memchunkhax to downgrade to 9.2

    He can dump NAND.bin and modify it to change NATIVE_FIRM to 10.2? Its easy when you have a hardmod

    look here for example of hard mod https://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-xl-nand-access-via-usb-mod.363245/
    basically you need to strip your 3ds open so you can have direct access to the nand

    Hardmod means soldering wires to your system and a sdcard-adapter, gaining read/write-access to the 3ds nand with the help of a cardreader and a pc.

    I wouldn't recommend doing this by yourself if you really care about your console, you should ask someone to do this for you, like @hundshamer for example.

    So it's impossible for me , I see.

    Aside from that soldering iron and perhaps wires (specifical kinds if you mean).

    I have the sdcard-adapter and the cardreader but that's all :/

    You should add "experience" to your list. I also wouldnt recommend soldering the first time on a 200$ console.

    So you would either recommend buying one or me waiting till there's someone with enough knowledge to come up with something to adjust it ?

    If you can't wait and don't mind spending a couple pounds, go for the hardmod. If you can wait or if you intend to spend as less money as possible, wait for a more noob-friendly solution.

    BTW I could hardmod your console if you want ^^

    Many options.
    1. Do what @UraKn0x told you.
    2. You buy the iron and take the risk of messing up thus wasting 200$+$ for soldering iron and material
    3. You get yourself a screenshot of the soldering points for your 3ds unit and take them to a technician or shop along with the console and let it solder for you.
    4. You let it be and live with 10.6

    You are from the UK, right?

    Why don't you contact @gamesquest1? A good amount of people had harmods with him.

    ^^''' Well it goes around asking how much it would be of course and where also is the question. The other solution depends on the time, I don't mind waiting but there is no exact date on it either or perhaps it would never come out (that's just a weak speculation of mine of course).

    That would be lovely ^^ problem : You're in France and I am not too close to it. Question : Did you do it yourself perhaps ?
