    You can run userland homebrew, such as emulators and homebrew games.

    Both need a Kexploit... the best thing you have access to is Save Editing Emulating... assuming Cubic will even run homebrew (ASLR?)

    But you have a DSTWO, so it would be better to run games with that. It has everything most people would want to emulate with homebrew (GBA/SNES)

    Downgrading requires an arm9 exploit.

    Guess I wasn't very specific on that tho. I think legit only needs Arm11 Kexploit, but Downgrading needs Both arms and a leg to downgrade

    Its not. It's just highly not optimal as you need a DS flashcart and the willingness to do a system transfer

    EDIT; And buying a DSiware title

    Since I am an entitled and uneducated prick, I'd like to know if there'd be anyway to just use a flashcard and dump the nand on the SD of the flashcard?

    Don't update your console -.- If it's below 11.0 then you dont even need a second 3ds to do it.

    I have two consoles, I don"t really want CFW but if really works it"ll be easy since I can use the other console, but I will like to downgrade to 10.3 for can use the patched Homebrew that use svcbackdoor, I don"t have a problem in buying the game, System Transfer to another sytem, install dsiwarehaxx and then System Transfer again and install 10.7 NATIVE_FIRM and downgrade to 10.3 since I have SmileBBASIC ready to download in my Home Menu.
    But I"m not sure because mostly I don"t know I"m not sure if this works with the actually avalible game to download in the eShop. I don"t really complain about make all that work if I"m honest. Did actually avalible game in the eShop to buy works to do this?

    One thing worth noting, is that a system transfer can only be performed once every 7 days.

    Very clever though. inb4 nintendo makes an update where downgrading FIRM using this method ( and/or hard mod) is impossible, by enforcing minimum FIRM on system menu, error display. They don't have to remove any dsiware.
