    Hey, I'm using a friend's 3DS in order to downgrade another 3ds.
    I want to restore everything when i'm done, so i'll backup everything with JKSM. What else should i do? a NAND backup for sure, but as for game data and such?
    Thank you!

    nand backup, sd backup and save backup should be enough

    Just to make sure, when i'm done I'll just need to do a NAND restore with the SD inside, and then do a save restore?

    First fromat your sd, copy your sd backup into it. After that do a Nand restore and then the save restore

    keep in mind you will likely need nintendo to unlink nnids, or transfer back 7 days later.

    Yes, I'm going to format my friend's 3DS and link it to a new NNID, one that will stay on the other 3DS, thats one of the reasons i wanted to know what i should backup first.
    Thank you
