    Yeah, I would like to test my DS Flashcard on a lower FW so I want to know how far can I downgrade without bricking (for Example closing Lid on Version 2.1)

    How far is it possible on EmuNand ? (same like SysNand)

    It's a New 3DS XL with Boot9strap installed...

    What was the first Firmware on the New 3DS XL ?

    Hopefully someone can help me :)

    (I know it's stupid to risk bricking when you can just install the DS Whitelist but it's not working on my 3DS)

    First firmware was 8.1 for Japanese region console and 9.0 for Eur/US consoles. You don't need to downgrade to use your DS flashcart, there's a few tools that mean pretty much any DS flashcart is playable.

    what do you mean with "Tools" ?
    My R4i isn't recognized at all !!!
    not in TWLoader ,NtrBoot (this thing that boots to the DS Screen and says insert Cardridge) or Decrypt9 :(

    Your flashcart might be borked or you need to update it with a DS.

    As above, Apache Thunder is the author of all of them I believe so if you want to check if there's any more, go to the Homebrew forum and do a search for threads created by Apache Thunder.
