    A friend has an old 3DS XL (not the new kind). But they updated it to the latest system menu.

    Can I use a Sky3DS to load up Gateway mode and then do a downgrade to 4.2?
     
  2. To load up gateway launcher, you must be on at least 9.2 or lower.

    if you have a NAND backup of when it was on 4.2 (or anything 9.2 or lower), I think you can get a hard mod to restore it.

    Only way to restore is with hard mod and a back up of the nand from when it was on a lower fw.
