    Is there a way to downgrade the console through, let's say, a backup from an older firmwarebackup or anything else? I really want to use the exploits, but I'm to silly and updated it to 5.4.0

    Thx for helping me.

    No. Even if a firmware downgrade was ever possible, you would need to have access to an exploit on your current firmware in order to do so.

    IOSU access is required for downgrading.

    We need the exploits to downgrade, and then if they worked on 5.4 there'd be no point.

    Hmm, ok thx. Do you think there will be an IOSU exploit on 5.4 soon? Or is the IOSU exploit in progress for <5.3.2 the only one known by today?

    It probably isn't patched, so it's a possibility

    Why are you banned?
