So I used this guide linked below to hardmod my N3DS XL.

https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-noob-friendly-nand-dumping-2ds-3ds-3ds-xl-n3ds-n3ds-xl.414498/

I just finished the mod on the motherboard and I haven't plugged my modded sd card adapter to my pc yet since I do not have the recommended card readers provided in the guide. With these info, here are my questions:

1. Can't I use any other cheap card readers? I have an unbranded one that costs less than $1. I could buy a better one locally but the price of around $10 is out of the question plus it's still not amongst the recommended card readers.

2. Using my laptop.. Can't I just use the card reader available on my laptop? I mean directly plugging the modded sd card adapter into the laptop's sd card slot.

3. Assuming that I finally did everything on the guide (hardmod and plugging it to pc), how will I use these to fully downgrade my 3ds to 10.7 or much better to 9. 2?

So far, those are my questions and I believe that more questions will arise along the way. Thanks everyone!

Card readers with the n3ds nand work here and there, so make sure you buy one that's confirmed working if you decide to buy one.
There's very few which are in laptops that work, there's a short list of some on here which are confirmed working though: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-noob-friendly-nand-dumping-2ds-3ds-3ds-xl-n3ds-n3ds-xl.414498/

Or if you're lucky like me and have one of these old things lying around, it seems to work with everything http://www.sweex.com/en/beeld-geluid/cr006/

but there's some nice cheap options on there, but make sure you get the right model number as it makes all the difference.
