    I want to remove mset, but dont understand how to use updateCDN (i'm on mac). So I was wondering if just formatting the system or doing an official update from nintendo would brick my device?

    Well for anyone wondering, an official nintendo update will not brick the new 3ds with downgraded mset (source i just did a stupid thing and said fuck it may as well)

    you could have installed the newer system settings menu which would have been much simpler

    my dad works for nintendo.
    if thats your goal, sell your 3ds, advertise its hacked and ask for a bit more than the usual price
    buy a new one...
    if your console is brand new, you can even sell it for a higher price than you can buy one

    this way another person can get a hacked console... and since in time its harder to get consoles at a low firmware... it's 1 more hacked console in the world...
