    You can only downgrade if you are on 9.2 firmware or less.

    9.2+ can't be downgraded

    Sell 9.3 3DS and put that cash towards one on 9.2 is your only realistic hope of a downgrade unfortunately.

    Nand backup of old version + hardmod is the only way.

    I have a sysNand backup. Will I be able to revert to it without hardware modifications if I make a mistake and bring my sysnand past 9.2?

    Nope, if you update past 9.2 you'll have to do the nand hardware mod to flash the old version, you should sent it to sb trusted that won't mess with soldering on your 3ds, just ask to somebody reputated on the scene
