There are some 5.0-9.2 consoles upgraded by retail cart from 1.0-1.1.
There is no Internet Browser until firmware 2.0.0 so those 1.0-1.1 -> 5.0-9.2 consoles won't have any access to the exploit URL --- After upgraded firmware by retail cart, once the user enter the Browser, it will ask the user to update the firmware. But the update issue never happens on 2.0-4.5 -> 5.0-9.2 consoles.
So they're uncrackable & undowngradable.
Be aware of those machines.

It might be possible to fix by updating via .cia, but to do that you need a Gateway. My best guess is that you could upgrade using a cart like Animal Crossing to 4.5, then use the DS Profile exploit to launch GW mode, then install the .cia to update the browser.

Yeah but he was talking about 5.0-9.2 consoles though.

well if the mii maker exploit does exist they should at least release it so it can be used so people with no browser could at least install the browser via cia, then remove the mii exploit so it doesn't break game compatibility

They would be more likely to respond the same as they did when it was 4.x only - "There are plenty of exploitable consoles available, just buy one of those".
