2DSaver – 2DS Setup Skipper Homebrew Softbrick Savior
The Nintendo 3DS family comes in many flavors, one of those being the affordable 2DS. This system is much more compact, lack of 3D may not entirely be a drawback, if you’re anything like me and never actually use the feature. More so since the system can play every current 3DS game, minus the actually 3D aspect.
In the CFW world of the 3DS, the 2DS is just as capable of being modded as its bigger and older brothers. Unfortunately in the current downgrade process there is a drawback once the device has been downgraded below firmware 6.0. Since the firmware used is meant for the old 3DS system. If the system is formatted while below firmware 6.0 it causes a softbrick of sorts. This issue pertains to the fact that the 2DS does not have a 3D slider button; hence when the setup option of 3D testing is enforced, the device is unable to do so.
Now there is hope. Developer zoogie has come along to help many a 3DS owner stuck in this dilemma. By using the system exploits available on the above mentioned system versions; using modified saves, it is possible to mod the system into skipping the system setup section. This in turn avoids the entire issue of not having a 3D slider. Thankfully now, of the many users who had formatted or will unfortunately format their systems, there is now a solution.
This solution can be implemented via 3 options:
1. A modded Cubic Ninja save
2. A modded Zelda Ocarina of Time save (some saves are still a work in progress)
3. Use of a sky3DS cart.
Luckily the Zelda OOT game card is often on sale, making it a plausible option.

Note: this is still in the testing stages, so read carefully and follow instructions to the T if you choose to try the options not in stable form.
