    I failed to downgrade my japanese n3ds, I booted it on reinand and then try to downgrade and now it's 11.0.33J.

    I don't have freaky deluxe or any other jp games (can't find the japanse room at all.)

    I have an EU n3ds 11.0.33 Reinand so I can't use dsiware method.

    Any other choices for me left?

    Nope. At the time of this post, your only option is hardmod.

    DSiWare Downgrade won't work, unless you purchased Legends of Exidia before it was pulled from the JPN eShop. Though you'd have needed this on a JPN Donor system.

    Quicker to now sell it and buy a lower firmware version while you can.

    Seems its not even possible to get Legends of Exidia with a Japanese DSi either. If it were possible to do so, one could do so, transfer it to a hacked 3DS, apply the save hack, then transfer again to unhacked 3DS.

    The 7 day cool down on transfers does not apply to either of the consoles in the DSi to 3DS transfer.
