    Sooo basically I have been gone for a very long time but since there are a few new updates released for the 3ds I wanted to look for some shit on this site

    I readed about something called DSiWare Downgrade but I don't really understand it and I would like some explanation. Since one of my friends would like to downgrade his 3ds I thought I'd help him out but I don't know where the fuck I gotta start.

    Please provide some help so I can downgrade the 3ds

    Thnx :D

    The DSiWare downgrade allows you to replace the FIRM binary in a 11.0, 11.1 or 11.2 console with the one from 10.4.
    This will then allow you to perform a full downgrade to 9.2, where CFW can be installed.
    It requires fhat a DSiWare game (e.g. Fieldrunners) and corresponding save file is installed on the system. From there you can run dgTool to downgrade FIRM.
    To install the game and save on an unhacked 3ds, you must purchase the game on a hacked 3ds and install the save. Then perform a system transfer.

    Plailect's guide will give more details, but I'm unsure if it has been updated for 11.2.
