    I upgraded by new 3ds to 11.2 without realizing there was a upcoming hax that allowed for downgrading. My question is, If my friend still has a 3ds with the firmware 11.1, Could I essentially Get his 3ds with custom firmware and then use his to downgrade mine?

    I haven't looked into it much, but would doing this remove any content like saves on the 3ds?

    Ok so essentially when "slowhax" comes out and I have the cfw installed on my friends system(probably meaning I buy the game on that 3ds), Do I just buy the game on his sysnand and then do all the steps?

    Well if his 3ds is CFW there is an exploit that is already out that involves 2 3ds. Slowhax is if you cannot get access to a CFW system!

    Yes so when I use slowhax to get his 3ds to 9.2(His firmware is 11.0 and mine is 11.2) and install cfw, Do I then buy fieldrunners on his 3ds with the neccesarry files (Spoof the firmware to 11.2) and then use system transfer to get it on my 3ds? If so, should he buy the game on the emunand or sysnand.

    That's exactly right! Also if he follows the guide to the word he won't need/have an emunand. He can just make a backup of the sysnand and restore after the transfer :P

    Ok so then his system wouldn't really be effected and mine would be on cfw?

    The only thing affected would be in Nintendo's eyes his NNID belongs on your system so you can only use it. You can call Nintendo to sort that out though!

    So to unlink a nnid and a system you need to call nintendo? Why would they do that though?

    You make up some excuse with the system transfer and how you messed up. That's what everyone does lol. I'd recommend just not mentioning hacks

    Ok and when I downgrade if I backup the files on the sd card, I can move them back after and my stuff (Monster hunter generations specifically) will be there?

    Downgrading doesn't make you lose anything anyway :P . If you follow the guide to the letter nothing is lost!
