    Or should I turn off Wi-Fi until v11.0.0.33 is downgradeable with softmods?

    blocking should do it.
    but just a thought: what if you run by a free wifi on the go? then you are screwed...
    so keep wifi OFF on the go, block updates on your known 3 wifis and always keep a complete NAND + SD card backup (I clone my card every few months) somewhere. so in case of an unwanted update you could restore using a hardmod.

    I never use free wi fi, and is it possible to backup NAND on my 3DS? I don't have any CFW, just Menuhax and Browserhax .

    Setup tubehax on you wifi networks. Then keep wifi off. You can't get cfw on 11.0 but you have something under 11.0 follow this guide. https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    Might as well be safe and turn Wi-Fi off. Thanks for the quick answers

    you do not have to use it. your 3DS will automatically log into a free wifi and then your are screwed!

    I download SNES games and I was so relieved when HTTPawn still worked. That'll teach Nintendo!

    Too bad I have to set it up after I reboot my 3DS everytime. No way am I losing my installed BASICsploit hack!
