    Hi GBAtemp community,
    I just wanted to have a bit of information, as I haven't got any about this.
    With Freakyhax, you have access to homebrew on 11.0.0, got it. But doesn't access to homebrew means access to NAND dumping tools, too? So here's the question :)

    Why can you downgrade in 11.0.0 with a NAND backup made from a hardmod, but can't with a "userland" dumped one? Is there something that differenciate the two NAND backups? Couldn't you just copy the NAND to the computer, patch the N_FIRM the same way you do with a hardmod?

    Thank you! ^_^

    Between here and there
    You can't dump on 11.0 homebrew, only on the FWs with an arm9 exploit.

    Oh, my bad! Didn't thought an arm9 exploit was needed... Pretty simple then. :P
