    So the only solution is to decrypt a nand and re-encrypt it with another 3ds key
    but then we would have to find a way to bruteforce 3ds'es unique keys

    No, the solution is that there is no solution. I'm assuming you have a >9.2 3DS and are SOL. Just go buy a Sky3DS or find an older 3DS.

    I don't think that Alk is trying to find a solution to his particular iteration of the entry-level problem "how do I mod MY 3DS," but is rather trying to find alternative solutions to the broad-scale question "how can I exploit the 3DS' vulnerabilities?"

    This seems more of a spitball/whiteboard thread than a noob help request.

    Exactly because even if I have a n3ds 9.2 many friends have an o3ds>9.2 so it would be cool to the 3ds comunity to find a way to downgrade any 3ds without backups
