    I've heard that you can't downgrade a 3ds on 11.5 versions. I may be wrong, but I don't think it is possible.

    Why would you downgrade when cfw is available on 11.5?

    At least not yet. I have heard there's secret payloads for 11.5. but it is hidden for a good reason.

    You cannot downgrade on 11.5. If you want to install B9S and CFW, which is highly recommended, these are your only options on 11.5:

    I remember installing Luma from homebrew. What homebrew methods are there for 11.5?

    For mere homebrew access (not CFW), you can use an alternative exploit to access homebrew on the N3DS on 11.5. Since no payloads exist for it, you cannot access homebrew on the O3DS on 11.5 without CFW.

    There's no way to know for sure, so I'm not going to make any predictions. If I were you, I would install CFW.

    Between insane and insecure
    The Hardmod method will work just fine with all versions of the 3DS/2DS.
    This is literally the same guide for the old3DS and New3DS (and their respective 2DS counterparts)
