    So I deleted the NANDmin backups from an old 3DS. What can I do now?

    I know updating a New 3DS is not possible but what about O3DS? What can I do?

    I downgraded a min ago. Can I just do a 9.2 directly? Isn't it possible to just update the 3DS?

    I mean the guide says that you shouldn't update an New 3DS since 2.1 is an Old 3DS firm but wouldn't it be safe to update on an Old 3DS

    Also if I can't where can I find the 9.1 ctrnand transfer?

    The OP won't brick, they have an O3DS. You CAN update an O3DS from 2.1.0 via System Update but not on a N3DS. This is because firmware 2.1.0 is an official firmware released for the O3DS and the N3DS firmware started at 8.X.X-XX. So basically the N3DS can't check for a firmware that old as it was never an officially released firmware for the N3DS.

    OP should update directly to 11.2 via system settings once you have a9lh, you'll be fine.

    Ah, I see. Google only pulled up the USA launch info. Thanks for correcting me. Although my point still stands. ;)

    Only after installing A9LH or does it work directly after the downgrade to 2.1?

    Yes, after you install A9LH just update system from the system settings.

    But what if it fails to boot after installing Luma like "Failed to mount CTRNAND" or just a plain black screen?

    Also why would you need to restore the system if updating is just fine?

    My point was you can't brick from updating an "O3DS" from 2.1.0 from updating. If you follow the guide it tells you to restore your NAND with Hourglass9 and use the "Restore (keep a9lh)". If you started from 11.2 OFW then you won't need to do a System Update, however not all people update to the latest firmware before installing A9LH so they have to do a System update. If you said you lost your NAND backups, how are you going to restore your system, the only way is to update the system like most of us have been saying.
