    Hi guys.

    I've been researching abit on the downgrading of 3DS/N3DS and there's a couple of questions i'm hoping someone can answer me.

    Now i know for a fact, that anything beyond 10.3 cannot be downgraded, so only 10.3 and below can be successfully downgraded to 9.2 which is the firmware to be at for homebrew options.

    I myself have an european n3ds (MH4 Edition) which comes with MH4 preinstalled (no card unfortunatly).

    1. When and if i decide to downgrade, will i still retain my game/saves and is it possible to create a backup of my current system in the case of failure or just in general backing it up?

    2. Is it at all possible to unlock regionlock on a 3ds/n3ds without downgrading?
    My friend and i just want to do this for MHX to be honest and are standbying to buy it with a whims notice.

    3. If downgraded, can i still play my MH4 game online with friends and beyond? Or will i need to manually update to latest CIA files in order to do this?

    1. I'm not sure about preinstalles games but it should still be there.
    2. Rxtools has cia any region and homebrew works on cards.
    3. Set up a emunand and update it and you can play online fine
