If somebody hasn't downgraded, chances are they have a reason. I have to explain in every single post I make that I can't downgrade because I get the "An error has occurred" softbrick every time I try. And stop saying it's 100% safe too, it's not, use me as an example. Thanks for your time. EDIT: I don't think people get the point. Of course I want to downgrade, which is why I'm staying on 10.3, but with the current method I can't without formatting and losing all my friends list and streetpass data (which I have spent over 3 years building up!). Any number of suggestions wont help with that. Also, there's no need to update to 10.5 anyway since I can spoof the firmware. EDIT 2: I should also mention that I'm perfectly content with not downgrading since I have a secondary 3ds that is successfully downgraded. I'll take 10.3 over 10.5 any day due to legit CIA installation and arm 11 kernal. I'm not jealous of people who have downgraded, and I'm not butthurt that I can't downgrade on my main 3ds. As the title states, it's the constant suggestions to downgrade that bug me.
