I have 2 3DS. O3DS ( 9.4 FW ) N3DS ( 9.6 FW ) Only options I currently have are the Sky3DS which has some games and possibly all future games blocked due to AP protection, which it seems on CFW can bypass. Yes, I can do homebrew, via browserhax or OooT. ( Homebrew won't allow booting a 3ds game though ) You can downgrade via hardware ( Gateway or solder a few points with a sd adapter ) but you need to have a previous dump of your NAND from a lower FW. Pretty sure all this is correct from what I gathered, what I don't understand is why we can't make a dump of current NAND and patch similar to PS3.
