    Hai, I've been wanting to downgrade and use CIAs on my 2DS v9.9, but I have a bit of a question/problem: should I delete Ironfall with Ironhax to save space and install Menuhax? Do I still need an entrypoint when on 9.2? Thanks in advance.

    Ironfall won't run on 9.2 so you may as well delete it if you're tight on space. And yeah, you will need an entrypoint.

    So something like Menuhax would work as an alt, right? Are there any downsides?

    The only downside to deleting Ironfall is that you'll have one less entry point if you decide to update again. Nothing else really. And yeah, I use Menuhax on all my systems.

    Also ironfall 1.0 is not downloadeable anymore, I should keep it only just for that.

    Menuhax stays when downgrading, am I right? So good. All I have to do is install Menuhax, delete Ironfall and downgrade away.

    You need to reinstall Menuhax after you've downgraded. It'll be installed for the the system menu version you downgraded from (9.9), in oppose to what you're on after the downgrade (9.2).

    You could but first you need to do an entry point to get to the hombrew launcher and install again the menuhax

    As I understand it, it'll go like this:
    - Once you downgrade, the menuhax won't work because it uses the firmware you've got before downgrading. I think you can delete that file on the sd with the pc or put out the sd, turn the ds on, put it again and change theme to delete the menuhax.
    - Use an entry point valid for 9.2 (most common seems browserhax), get in the HBL and install again the menuhax.

    I haven't downgraded myself but this is what people seems to say/do.

    Since you're on 9.2, just use menuhax and cold boot into emunand. You said you're on 2ds, so you'll be able to have 10.3 emunand + fbi+ bbb/m for cia stuff.

    here's a wild idea...
    back it up to your computer from your sd card to save space.
    if you ever want it again, copy it back :)

    plug into your sd card to the computer.
    find the ironfall folder (look for it's title id) and back it up.

    So backing it up is literally just moving it to desktop? Sorry, I'm not that experienced in the scene

    go to 3dsdb.com
    find the title id of ironfall.
    yes in the 3ds folder, in the 'title' folder. keep going deeper, looking.
    eventually you will find a folder with the last 8 digits of ironfall's title id.
    back it up, and then delete it from the sd card if you want. put it back later if you want.
