    I've read that its risky to downgrade a n3ds, but I have an o3ds at 10.3 and I was wondering how safe it is to downgrade to 9.0/9.2?

    Thank you!

    The safest. Beyond or below that, it's not really going to be as safe, and 10.3< you're going to need a hardmod.

    Try safesysupdater. It has a lower chance of hardbricking your system. But I tried multiple times with this on 10.3 and I always got a softbrick. You can easily recover but then you'll be stuck on 10.5.

    There is still some risk, albeit not much. Even if you double check you have the correct update files, don't expect a 100% success rate.

    I've done a couple of o3ds and they went perfect with safesysupdater. No bricks and no softbrick. Probably worst case will be soft brick and update to 10.5
