    And I wanted to know what special precautions should I take to downgrade it to 9.2

    I don't know in which version will it come, but I'm assuming 9.8 or so. What do you think it will go best:

    a) Julian's Sysupdater up to 10.3 then Safesysupdater to 9.2
    b) Direct 9.8~ to 9.2 using Safesysupdater
    c) Direct 9.8~ to 9.2 using Julian's Sysupdater
    d) Direct 9.8~ to 9.2 using tuxsh's Sysupdater linkhax/SUlib version

    Given I have only one chance to make it right, is it too risky?

    But I will need to set up menuhax twice and tubehax dns once (as 9.8 isn't affected by the browser update nag)

    I would guess A, but I haven't downgraded any consoles yet. I think it was mainly tested on 10.3, no?

    Yes it was. And "New" systems are specially delicate with downgrades.

    If you're super nervous about it I would just get a Nand mod done first.

    I guess you could even go one step further: update to 10.3, format it so you have a completely fresh slate (make sure there's no update nag) and then downgrade, but this is territory I'm not familiar with, so take my guess with a grain of salt.

    Not that nervous, but I will not keep the system afterwards. Not for myself. Better be safe than sorry.
