I read a article about the update system:http://yifan.lu/2015/03/23/nintendo-3ds-system-updater/

Why we can't just use a DNS to redirect all "nintendowifi.net" request to a different server in order to trick it into downloading an update in-between the latest version and the version it's currently running?

Yeah it is possible, @Ronhero has done it before and offer services to people who want to update to 9.2 without access to CFW (N3DS 8.1J users).

Basically set up your own private server, host the files, redirect the calls to it.

He even uploaded a video to show an update being done using this proccess.

As of right now it's easier to Ota update to 10.3 and browserhax to menuhax booting directly to downgrade.

No software or server needed

I think he is talking about it in general, update to X firmware without it being the latest.

I honestly don't like the 10.3 downgrades released anyways.

I tried to downgrade a system recently, it failed to launch the exploit most of the times and when it finally did... the app failed to read the updates properly :glare:. I'm sure the updates were the correct ones and undamaged, there is also sone people that got hard bricks and having them without a hardmode/backup already dumped in place your system is totally done...

I'm not exposing my 2 main 10.3 systems to this crap anymore, I'm sitting them in a corner until 10.3 CFW becomes a reallity or Gateway releases another great downgrade method as they have in the past.

Yeah I'll agree especially with the brick Cia for JPN I personally prefer private nus updates.

I had the same problems you had with downgrading, just takes a lot of retires to get it to recognize the files. I also have hard mods on all mine but have done it successfully for others as well.
