    Yes, I updated sysnand to 10.5. I am not brain dead, just a horrible mistake. Is there a way to downgrade to a lower version with sysupdater without hardmodding? I mean, I have my nand backup, but I've had my N3DS for just a month and I am afraid to proceed.

    You can only do a hardware mod. You need to open your N3DS and solder, though. After that, you can try to downgrade to 10.2 and then use Sysupdater from there.

    No software-only solution right now.

    Nopes, memchunkhax2 was patched on 10.4. You can hardmod and restore your backup, you can hardmod and go back to 10.3 using a recently released tool, you can hardmod and wait for arm9launcher or you can wait for a new kernel exploit to be made public.

    Would it be wise to wait? Does anyone know when downgrading from 10.5 will be made possible without hardmodding?

    That's like when everyone was waiting for a 9.2+ exploit for kernel or for downgrading since more than a year ago. You don't know if any new exploit will be found nor when. It just happens after months, or years, of searching.

    No one knows, no one can know. The last time a kernel exploit was patched it took a year until another one dropped. There are some private exploits, but they probably aren't going to be released. Arm9launcher looks very promising, but apparently it also needs hardmod. If you can hardmod, go for it, if you can't... Just live with *hax.

    If any of you guys have a link for a good hardmodding guide, I would be grateful. I am still not sure about doing this though.

    If you're uncomfortable about having your N3DS hardmodded, I'd recommend hiring someone who's well practiced at this kind of hardmodding.

    With the NX on the way, it would be likely that sensible hackers will wait until the 3DS is no longer receiving any updates to use up a kernel exploit.
