    Question in the title.

    Or would I need to have an alternative entrypoint to HBL aswell?

    Short answer is yes.

    Is that not the point in a downgrade? You can get to a point where the entry point you want to use is viable.

    Thanks.

    Now I'm confused.
    Will it work or not?
    It's a Jap N3DS, so it would be hard to find an entrypoint for it.

    Not if he downgrades.
    You can use a hardmod to downgrade. Once downgraded, the entrypoints for the firmware you downgraded to will work again.

    Are you absolutely sure? Because I think it's just a FIRM downgrade, not a complete one...
    I'm not sure that includes the browser.

    Hardmod only downgrades NATIVE_FIRM, not the rest of the system titles :P

    Browser won't work as entrypoint.

    I think I misinterpreted. You are correct, downgrading the native firm alone will not give him access to browserhax. He can then use Oot/CN/FF to do a full downgrade. At this point he can use browserhax. I forgot about the extra steps needed to downgrade to a usable firmware (9.2.0-20).

    How good is your soldering? Might be cheaper to buy, another local console on firmwares 10.5 and below then to pay for someone to hardmod and import an entry point!
