Hello everyone,
I have a difficult situation. I'm prepared to hear "No, it's not possible" but I figured I'd double check and exhaust all of my options.

So here it goes.
I just received a copy of LoZ MM (Jap) in the mail. The sender didn't realise that the game was Japanese. I have a USA console and I want to play it, of course.
I would normally jump on regionthree, but it's disabled on my firmware (9.5.0-23U)
My console got updated when a friend borrowed it (ouch..)

I have a sky3ds. I know it's not the best but is there any way I can downgrade the firmware, or somehow break the region lock?

I wanna play MM.

Thanks for all help/replies in advance.

Not possible with sky. You need a nand backup. You need to enter gateway menu to backup your nand which i'm assuming you didn't do before.

No gateway, so not a chance.

I'm high up a creek in a boat without a paddle, it seems. It is morally OK to me to download the USA ROM :^) which I might resort to.

You don't need gateway to do a downgrade. You just needed to backup your nand in the gateway menu.
