    Hi there!

    Sorry if this has been posted in the wrong section of this website, I really don't know how to use this website.

    Anyway, today I decided I'd like to give hacking a try, but I've already undated my DS to 11.4! and its old.... Most methods to downgrade them require the DS to have been previously hacked, which mine has never been hack before, it's looking pretty hopeless isn't it?

    I was wondering, does anyone know if there is anyway to downgrade an old 11.4 3DS that has never been hacked before?

    I just really want to give hacking a try, is there a way for me to downgrade or should I just invest in a New 3DS (I've found lots of tutorials on how to hack on the New 3DS)

    P.S. I'm a total noob.... can I even be called a noob if I've never actually done it before? So, I'm sorry that I'm so hopeless. Thank you in advance for your time!

    Yes, its possible to downgrade firmware 11.4 using the following steps:

    1) Sell 11.4 3DS

    2) Purchase 11.3 or below 3DS

    3) Now you have a downgraded 3DS

    4) Enjoy!

    There is no way to downgrade a 3DS on 11.4 at this moment.

    If there isn't that guy who links you to 3ds.guide then its not downgradable. Sorry but you are going to have to sell your 3DS and get a new one OR wait until 11.4 is hackable. Just don't update your 3DS at all if it asks you to.

    I think. Its totally worth to sell a 11.4 3ds and get a 2ds on lower firmware.
    Heck the 3d effect is so bad.
