    Just wondering it was possible. I'd really like to go down to 1.4.4 or below :/

    Out of curiosity, why do you want to do that? Are looking to unblock a flash cart or what?

    Not trolling, I'm just genuinely curious.

    Assuming anyone gave enough ***k about a DSi to nand mod one, they'd still need a dump from before they updated. Like with the 3DS, you can't downgrade unless you have a backup of the old sysnand from before the update.

    Though the DSi's security isn't as good as the 3DS's was, so the firmware encryption might have been cracked/exploited. But I don't think anyone ever really bothered with it. :P

    GW could revive the DSi within the 3DS ... afaik DSi enhanced games run on the 3DS with the additional features.
