You know how you can't downgrade to and from some NATIVE_FIRMs without downgrading every other title? ex. 10.7 -> 9.2 = no go.

If Nintendo just artificially put some incompatibilities into some of the system titles with previous firmwares, that would semi-fix the DSi and hardmod downgrade.

Don't tell Ninty

Doesn't the hardmod/DSi downgrade replace ALL titles with older versions anyway? In this case, even if 11.1 (or perhaps 12.0) had som titles that are incompatible with older versions of FIRM, they will just have to be replaced during downgrade as well.

No, it literally just replaces 11.0 NFIRM with 10.4 NFIRM.

The NAND modification in these exploits involves the firmware in the NAND being plaintext. So no, only the NATIVE_FIRM is changed.

Yes, Nintendo can easily have done this a lot time before but they didn"t for some reason.
@PewnyPL No, you can"t change the Nand installed titles with DSiWareHax.

Like seriously, it would be like one line of code checking CVer on boot and if there's a mismatch then trigger SAFEMODE_FIRM.
