    From what I've read, in order to downgrade the MSET, it requires a copy of Cubic Ninja or Zelda OOT. I plan to set up reiNand on my Japanese imported N3DS and am not sure whether or not I should purchase Cubic Ninja and just run reiNand through that or a flashcart if the N3DS MSET is downgradable. What exactly do I need to set up the MSET profile exploit on my N3DS? Thanks.

    I think the MSET for N3DS is only for Gateway for now

    Yea, cubic ninja seems to be the best bet for downgrading mset for reinand. Maybe for now. I'm thinking of options to save people money

    So I'll need both a copy of Cubic Ninja to downgrade the MSET and a flashcart to install the exploit as well?

    technically, because you need to gain arm9 to install the downgrade as well as the version 0 of DS card black list to use flash cart.

    Ebay, I just kept an eye out and pm'd people about the serial numbers until I found what I wanted.

    This was after a number of store visits and returns.

    If you don't mind store hunting, no. All depends on how lucky you are. Since newer batches are above 9.2 now.
