So Ive been reading up on all the downgrade news for the past couple of weeks or so and it seems that for New 3DS users 10.3 is pretty much flawless for downgrading and has a very low chance of softbricking. I mean I know this is kind of a public knowledge but every day I see a couple of people saying they had a New 3DS on 9.8 or whatnot and they softbircked or semibricked their console which is a shame to say the least. Thats why I decided to open this thread and give you some instructions on what you should do before you downgrade your New 3DS. Bellow is a general idea on how to update and downgrade your New 3DS console if youre bellow 10.3. You are doing this at your own risk and I nor any community members are not responsible for a possible hard, soft or semi brick which may or may not occur during this process. You will need Ninjhax or OOTHAX configured to work with 10.3 for this so if you dont own either of them your best bet is to wait for Gateway to release their downgrade solution which has proven to be pretty flawless in the past. Format your console so that everything is at factory state. (I dont know if this is necessary but I would do it just in case if your console is used or whatnot do delete all the settings like a custom DNS) Install your prefered method of hax (I would suggest munuhax, but you also need a secondary permanent hax like Ninjhax when you update to 10.3) @julian20 sysupdater which can be found at page 91 or page 95 of the "Simple Guide to Downgrading your 3DS" thread. A 9.2 and 10.3 .cia update pack which can be found on a certain ISO site. Before instaling your 10.3 cia pack and with it updating to 10.3 be sure to check the md5 of the file youve downloaded just to make sure that the file is intact and install your 10.3 update. The update should go smoothly and you should be on 10.3 Now at this point the best thing would be to format your console yet again just in case (im not sure if this would help but I would think it does.) So now that youre on 10.3 the only working entrypoint would be OOTHAX or Ninjhax so that can be a problem if you dont neither of them, but if you do just Install menuhax again, check the md5 of the 9.2 update you downloaded and press downgrade. The downgrade process should go smoothly and you should be on 9.2.
