    I've seen several people who got stuck on the downgrade process with the tubehax DNS saying that they're contacting nintendo and seeing if the warranty can cover it if they lie

    My question is, Isn't possible to redirect Tubehax DNS IP to 8.8.8.8 with your router configuration and enter to recovery mode safety ?

    depending on the router and or firewall, yea. Last I recall, PfSense and DD-WRT both have the ability to do this. For it entering recovery mode safely, I am not sure on that.

    The name of this is NAT, not all routers can do this, but if your does them you're lucky

    Heh, mine used to force 192.168.1.254 as the DNS, that was a dark time.
