    Hello, as simple as it gets:
    whats the easiest and safest way to update my 2.2.0 O3DS to 4.5 or 9.2 in order to run RxTools?

    Update it with sysupdater? or safesysupdater? or updating it to 10.3 then downgrading it? i have no carts with an update as far as i know.

    Regards!

    You can't install sysupdater in that version. Get a game that requires 4.5 firmware then install rxTools

    Update by cart to 4.5 (check http://www.3dsdb.com/) (buy one cheap on a secondhand site)
    install mset exploit
    Get gateway files (actual cartridge not needed)
    Make NAND backup and setup EmuNAND
    Setup CFW (rxTools

    If you don't have any game, update to 10.3 now while you can
    Then downgrade to 9.2

    I don't get it , why people downgrade to 4.5 when you can have a coldboot on 9.2 with menuhax and ctrboot


    but yeah ; unless you have a cartridge or you're willing to buy one ; just upstage to 10.3 and downgrade back to 9.2 from there

    People in firmwares below 4.1 usually don't have a working web browser.

    Usual procedure is to update to 4.x with a game cardtridge, use the mset exploit to boot rxTools and then finally use sysupdater with Dev Mode to update to a full 9.2 that includes the web browser and can coldboot CFW.

    You have to remember that the 10.3 downgrade has been available for around a week at most, frankenfirmwares have made presence and there is a brick risk everytime, even if it's safer now is not %100 safe as the method mentioned above.

    So, there is 2 roads in my eyes
    1) The safe longer journey.
    2) The easy risky one.
