    when i had my 3ds updated to 10.5 i was frantically looking for ways to downgrade and get CFW(etc.)

    i looked everywhere and finally found 1 way, hard mod.

    i asked (along with 50 other people) is there a way to SOFT downgrade 10.5? when will there be?

    everyone and their brother told me and everyone else
    "No, there is no way and there wont be a way for a long time, the only option you have is to hardmod which is not recommended for people who arent master solderers."

    "no there wont be for a long time, maybe forever"
    "nope, probly not for a long time"

    2 weeks later, i hard mod my o3ds XL with MINIMAL SOLDERING SKILLS, and find out that there is a new sysupdater to downgrade 10.7!!

    needless to say i was pissed that i opened my 3ds up and risked breaking it because of naysayers.

    it didnt take long at all for the new downgrade to come out and many people voided their warranty and bricked their console.

    moral of the story is...there will ***ALMOST*** always be a new hack, just be patient and wait. dont trust the naysayers.

    You're wrong tho, there was no new exploit, it was the same one as in the 10.2 downgrade, Nintendo just didn't fix it properly.

    Once that one is actually fixed, don't expect a new exploit within the next couple years, if ever.

    Your hardmod isn't a waste of money at all. In fact, it gives you the ultimate solution should you ever have a problem.
    Talking about the downgrade thing. Smea and company have had exploits which they haven't revealed until way later. We can consider ourselves lucky these people shared their findings with the community. Otherwise, it would have really become a "forever waiting".

    more naysayers and ...apparently assholes? damn, thought you guys would be nice people, hopefully you dont talk to people like that in real life.

    so what you are saying is that we could have downgraded right off the bat? the moment the update came out?

    nope, dont think so. never said there was a new exploit, so what exactly are you saying im wrong about?

    i will expect it to be out before a couple years, cause im not pessimistic.

    While there may not have been a new "exploit" released per se, there were new payloads to make the exploit work, so technically it was a new release, even if not a full exploit release.

    Ok, first of all. You're the one that opened and soldered the thing. At the time, you were given the best advice based on the condition of the scene.

    Saying there will always be a hack is pretty naive. The moral is DON'T UPDATE.

    Hey @Goombah111 , Just thought I'd throw this out there about always being a new hack.. Tell that to the PS3 people with >3.55 firmware that have been waiting several years. :P

    nope, best advice would have been "there will easily be a new payload (according to k3rizz3k) eventually, try waiting, or you can hard mod which is easy for a novice solderer"

    and yes, there wont 'always' be a hack (although 99% of the time there is for every console thats been hacked) and not updating would obviously be your best bet, but sometimes people dont have control over that. maybe their kid updates it, maybe their friend does it, maybe they do it on accident.

    patience is key.

    i remember i never thought ps3 would be hacked after 3.55 but then 2 new solder-less hacks came out and made me a buttload of money modding it for people.

    Shut up. Nobody is gonna say that there is gonna be a new/fixed exploit when they don't know for certain. It's just stupid.

    funny how you guys mentioned ps3 same time as me. may not be ideal but there were new hacks.

    modchips are way harder than EFLASHERs
