    So recently I've been looking around for a downgrading service and I can't seem to find any reliable people that could do it for a fair amount. I even swapped out a 2ds for a 3ds but it's still on 11.0 sadly. I saw an older thread in this section of someone asking the same thing and it went well for him so I figured I'd do the same.

    Thanks for the help!

    You can contact @vb_encryption_vb for a hardmod downgrade service. He's relliable and does it very well.

    I was actually looking at his profile after seeing an old post but wasn't sure if he still did it, I'm glad to know he is I'm gonna shoot him a message.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone know someone that would do it for under $40? I found someone that does it for that much then I cover the shipping, $70 is a little much but that's the price of vb_encryption's quality service which I respect since he has a good reputation.

    I do downgrades for free, but I live in Portugal, so I guess shipping would be expensive.

    I can't imagine how much would cost for shipping from USA to Portugal with Insurance.

    Yeah over $60 according to USPS.

    The other person that's offering the service for $40 is in Canada so shipping there wouldn't be too bad, around $25 plus shipping back

    Indeed. Plus, if you get it hardmodded instead of doing a DSiWare downgrade like I do, that is a plus. Even if you screw your A9LH installation, you'll be able to restore with a backup.

    Yep, the person who is in Canada does a temporary hard mod to downgrade. There's absolutely nobody in my area that does downgrading so this is what I have to resort to lol

    Actually, I'd rather have a perma hardmod if I sent mine to get hardmodded. It's a bonus.
