    I'm on 10.1 on an US o3DS via menuhax(memchunkhax2 seems to work well on mine, booting into linux 2 times in a row)
    What is the absolute safest way to downgrade? Ik these facts:
    * Use safesysupdater
    * Check md5/sha256 anyways
    * Charge the thing up, and plug it up anyways...
    * Auto DNS

    Just make sure you have DNS to autoselect or whatever

    Read the future?

    Software usually gets better with time.

    I think it might be direct kernel access on 10.3, not a downgrade.

    One thing that will prevent a softbrick is to format the 3DS beforehand.
    This will remove all of your data, but you wont be stuck on 10.4.

    I know.
    If you softbrick, you will be forced to update to 10.4
    If you format before the downgrade, it lowers the chance of a softbrick.


    I softbricked 3 times in a row trying to downgrade, and I fixed it by format, but that was when 10.3 was the latest firmware.

    Its recommended that you take it out before the format.

    Nothing else can really go wrong unless you turn of the 3DS while CIAs are installing or somthing.
