    You can use the fieldrunners way (Or the DSI Hax way.)

    With another, A9LH hacked 3DS you can downgrade your current one.

    You do one of the following
    A. Transfer an exploited DSiWare game to that system (I doubt you have a second system so this is outta your vector)
    B. Wait for a new software downgrade to be released
    C. Get a hardmod

    If you are willing to send the 3ds, you might as well go the hardmod route. There are a list of people here who do that kind of stuff, yet I have heard stories of people not getting their 3ds back, so its at your own risk.

    If you're willing to cough up a bit of cash, there's vb_encryption_vb (hardmodder, based in America. He doesn't work for free tho
    EDIT; None of them work for free anyway)

    There are users offering an A9LH install service on the forum, you can also get a hardmod installed but it will cost more.
    You need 100 posts to access the buy/sell/trade subforum, though.
    I found people in Canada and UK offering an A9LH install service using the DSiWare method (or at least one of them did, the other I'm not sure about), but none in US. @vb_encryption_vb and @hundshamer offer hardmods in US but I'm not sure if they offer downgrade only or A9LH install, you can ask them.

    It is a super early, fast and reliable exploit that allows a CFW that uses sysNAND.

    What is this about DSiWare?

    If you install an exploit onto certain DSiWare games before doing a Sys transfer, then you could downgrade an 11.0 system with said exploit (look up Plailect Fieldrunners downgrade. I'd link but I have stuff on my clipboard)

    I wonder how that works, sounds like they did not sandbox the 3DS correctly at all.

    A TLDR of it; DSiWare has Nand access, so we take advantage of that using an exploit that can only be installed on an already hacked system, which luckily surives system transfers

    Pretty much; they were lazy. Since the dsi had full NAND access, they just went and did the same for TWL_FIRM. However, this does not work for DS mode, since DS mode didn't have NAND access. Therefore, no ordinary DS flashcart will work.
    What we do is take over TWL_FIRM with dsiwarehax, with a game like fieldrunners, installing the hacked save on an already controlled 3ds. (Installing the save, in a nutshell, requires arm9 control) We then transfer the save to the unhacked 3ds, and take over TWL_FIRM, thus being able to dump the NAND, inject an older FIRM with the known plaintext exploit (can someone remind me how that works again please? How can we decrypt FIRM and FIRM alone from an encrypted NAND?) And inject the modified NAND into the 3ds. Since the older FIRM is signed, the 3ds will say "go right ahead! (In running)".
    And that's how the DSiWare downgrade works! Dang, this was longer than I thought it'd be. I might actually make a new thread containing this info.

    You're dishing out cash either way
    so you may as well get Kernal access and unsigned .cia files

    Of course, the DS did not have NAND!

    Would be interesting to look into the FIRM used with the DS, maybe it could be tricked with one of those hybrid carts or some clever DS programming.
