Well, I was wondering if it'd be possible to downgrade to 4.5 (for the MSET exploit) after downgrading to 9.2 from 9.4.0-2x (I think it was 24?)? I mean, perhaps it could brick the 3DS after doing it or something.

To clarify: I had a 9.4.0-2xEUR O3DS (not XL) and I just recently downgraded it using SysUpdater (not SafeSysUpdater) to 9.2.0-20EUR. Could I downgrade to 4.5 (using Gateway software) or it'd brick or don't let me do it?

Thank you.

Last time i checked you couldn't downgrade just the mset alone on a o3ds and have it work for gateway 3ds and that it was only for n3ds.

i'm interested in this too.
it's been answered that you can downgrade the mset, but original question was not.
so, can you (safely) downgrade full firmware to 4.5 w/ gw method after downgrading to 9.2 from higher f/ws?

What do you mean? Explain yourself, please.
rxTools 3.0 has a function to do that. The downloader doesn't work but I found the file in a youtube video. I have an O3DS 9.2 and can confirm that it works.

Yes, but it is useless

To answer that:
Yes you can downgrade to 4.5 once you downgraded to 9.2 with the Gateway loader
I did it just for fun on my test system (O3DSXL (hardmodded))
- Updated from 9.2.0-20E to 10.3.0-28E
- Downgraded from 10.3.0-28E back to 9.2.0-20E
- Downgraded from 9.2.0-20E to 4.5.0-8E
- Upgraded back to 9.2.0-20E (because it's a test system and i see no point in having a 4.5 system if 9.2 can do all i want)

Note:
I do own a retailcart of CN and OoT + I can write those 2 games to my Sky3DS and use that as *hax entrypoint

You're correct on the bricking part. Whenever you downgrade, there is a chance of bricking. So long as you can hardmod or firmware backup, it's not a problem though.

It is supposed to because you downgrade the MSET title and THEN you install your exploit. You can switch that way between rxTools MSET and Gateway MSET.

:O seems like Gateway sucks compared to rxTools... But why having MSET if you can have coldboot?
Exactly. Only reason i can think of is so you won't directly boot into emunand if you are having issues with nintendo ds flash carts/games. It wouldn't b e a problem if gateway added features like that so for mset you have no choice but to stay at 4.x to run both gateway and rxtools through mset.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
