    Hey guys I'm downgrading my first new 3ds xl to 2.1 but i noticed that plailect's guide no longer tells you to unbrick emunand before backing up and injecting emunand to sysnand. Should i still do it as a precaution or is it not necessary anymore?

    The unbricking part is only for n3ds, and you can use one click installer now to inbrick

    the One Click Setup automatically unbricks it for you if you're on a new 3ds

    Always follow Plailect's guide to the letter, even if it's not as you remember it. The changes make the process more safe, not more risky :)

    I notice in the downgrading section it doesn't have the part that says N3DS JP users need to delete a specific cia to avoid a brick like every other guide.

    Has the offending cia already been removed from the 9.2 JP downgrade cia pack? Is it safe to just use it as is?

    Plailect already removed it, you're safe to go ahead :)

    That's great! I could never understand why that was ever there to begin with!

    Because if you followed part 3 you were still in decrypt9.

    EDIT: Nevermind, seems like a mistake on @Plailect's part
