    Is there any way to downgrade my 3ds firmware 9.6.0-24U to something in the 9.2.0 range? If not, can I expect that there ever will be?

    There is no way to downgrade from X to Y, except if X has an ARM9 exploit.
    The last ARM9 exploit (usable) we know was fixed in 9.5, and needed a kernel exploit that was fixed in 9.3

    No, but I have heard of people buying a 9.2 console exchanging motherboards and then returning it.

    Is that to say if you're on 9.4 you're not able to downgrade because the kernel exploit was fixed?

    Well that's a shame, I think I'd rather stick with my MM N3DS than get a lower one. I guess this KARL3DS also would require the 9.2. I might have to figure something else out I really want to play some jap games...
