    I know all 2DS systems ship with exploitable firmware, but I've heard some ship with 7.1 and others ship with 6.0. I'm interested in a 6.0 system specifically because, from what I understand, you don't have to do any sketchy downgrading.

    Of course, if it turns out I'm wrong and it really doesn't matter which I get, I'd like to know too.

    Umm dude. 6.0 and 7.1 both require a downgrade for the MSET exploit...

    Wait, 2DS's can be downgraded below 6.0? I thought that was the lowest they could go.

    I don't know about a 2ds, but I do know that there are no exploits that were patched between 6.0 and 7.1.. Unless im stupid?
    What exploit is avalivble on 6.0 and not on 7.1?

    The 6.x MSET entrypoint, which was apparently patched in 7.0.

    The MSET downgrade is safe as long as you downgrade to the 6.x MSET, as it won't result in a soft-brick if you format your sysnand. If you really don't want to downgrade your System Settings, then by all means, find a 6.x 2DS; it doesn't make much difference!

    I've downgraded my mset from a couple of 9.2 2ds's. It's not going to hurt.
    Definately recommend 6x mset though.

    If you really have to have a 6x 2ds, go to a little shopped store and get a plain red or blue one, no pack ins.
