    So, I'm seeing all these success posts of people downgrading but I'm still nervous about doing the downgrade. I could mess something up and I have a limited edition Pikachu 3DS XL and I don't want to brick it so is it safer to wait for JustPingo's app to be released?

    I have a limited editiron Pikachu 3DS XL, I had no issues with updating originally, but I messed it up myself by updating back.

    Definitely. Better wait for a 100% fail-proof method.

    From what I read, KTM is supposed to be safer than the actual downgrade.
    Also, it is specific to n3DS so we should not have any issue...

    If you can wait a bit and you've got a <10.1 n3DS, just wait for it.

    EDIT: Seems that you're 3DS is an old one, right? (I think the Pikachu is an old one but I may be wrong. If it is the case, you should just downgrade because I think that KTM uses SNSHax that is working on n3DS only)

    SNSHax is no longer being worked on. KTM is not SNSHax, and is not specific to the N3DS.

    No, JustPingo stopped working on that awhile ago. His app will work for both the old and new 3DSes. :)

    Great, I did not follow the project, I'm just waiting for it to be released so I was not aware about it.
    Anyways, seems to be a good news. Definitely, just wait for it. You can already download the downgrade files on that iso site and it seems that the file will be check before installation. Seems definitely way more secure. ;)

    Someone posted a download link on here to the ttp files and I downloaded that. That's the correct file right?

    Do I have to extract it or just put the ttp file on the root of my SD card when the app is ready?

    According to that iso website thread, the ttp file is the only file that the app needs so do not extract it or whatever, just put in on the SD. ;)

    Besides, KTM will probably have a mch2 that won't crash 80% of the time.

    Put it on the root. Don't extract.

    Okay, I will do that then! I think on his Twitter he said it should be released on Wednesday, but don't take my word for it. :P

    With the increasing reports of bricks, better safe than sorry.
