    So, basically what the Title says. I get that error code when i try to use the Pokémon Bank software. I tried using Tiksweep, and it cleaned 13 unused tickets, but after rebooting, i still get that error. I have no issues (that i know about) downloading Demos from the eShop or downloading Themes, so what can this be?

    I used ctrtransfer 2.1.0 to downgrade from 11.2.0-35E, installed Luma3DS and Hourglass9, now i have CFW on my New3DS.

    I'm having the same problem, and I haven't yet found a solution.

    The error code isn't particularly helpful because Nintendo doesn't seem to give an explanation:
    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wf...p?error_code=006-1608&system=3DS&locale=en_US

    The first thing I tried was redownloading Pokemon Bank after deleting it (along with its save data). When I tried to redownload it, I got a different error code (maybe 007-6106) which I eventually discovered had something to do with an invalid ticket. After deleting the title and ticket, I was able to redownload Pokemon Bank along with the 1.2 update. Unfortunately, I'm still getting error 006-1608 even after all that.

    I'll let you know if I find a solution.

    Did you guys format your systems/change your nnids at any point?

    I didn't change my nnid, and I haven't formatted my system (unless you count anything done during the a9lh installation process on https://3ds.guide/).

    If you didn't actually format it (in system settings), then no that doesn't count.

    Alright, I've sorted this out. In my case at least, this is a ticket issue.

    There are two entries for Pokemon Bank in the "Titles" section of FBI, but it seems like there are _three_ tickets:
    0004000E000C9B00
    00040000000C9B00
    0004000D000C9B00

    The top two tickets are each associated with a Pokemon Bank entry under the Titles section, but the bottom one isn't. I was using the "Delete Title And Ticket" option from the Titles section, so I was only deleting two of the three tickets.

    Here's what I did:
    1) Delete the two Pokemon Bank entries from the Titles section
    2) Delete all three tickets from the Tickets section
    3) Restart the DS (I don't know if this is required, but I did it)
    4) Connect to the eshop, and redownload Pokemon Bank (and the update)

    After I did that, I was able to connect to the Pokemon Bank without errors.

    I'm not sure what I did to cause this problem, but I'm sure it's my fault somehow.

    I fixed all kinds of problems by simply reflashing the NANDmin.bin backup, injecting FBI into H&S, clearing all unused Tickets with Tiksweep, and then reinstalling all the .cia files through FBI. Basically, i did the 3ds.guide all over again, BUT i did skip section 7 where it tells you to "Reinstall Tickets" when you did take the backup before ctrtransfer 2.1.0. That fixed everything, so if you have eShop issues, Theme issues or Pokemon Bank issues, try flashing your NAND backup once again, and restart the guide from section 5.

    Just curious since I'm getting the same error when logging into pokemon bank, when you deleted the tickets and redownloaded the app were your pokemon still in pokemon bank?

    Arkhangelisk's instructions helped me out too. And yes, they were still in the bank afterwards.

    Also checking in to say that Arkhangelisk's post helped me too. This was my experience, in case someone else stumbles on this thread:

    In Titles I saw two copies of Pokemon bank, and in Tickets I saw four red tickets but only one matched Arkhangelisk's post (the last ticket), so I assume the other three are from something else. I went back to Titles and deleted only the titles (of Pokebank) and left the tickets. Returning back to Tickets, two more had shown up red, from the deletion just now. I deleted the two tickets and the extra one that matched the post (0004000D000C9B00) and left the other ones alone.

    Then restarted the 3DS and went back to the eShop to download Pokemon Bank and its update. Partway through the update download it threw me an error and I went back to the HOME screen. I continued the download from there and this time it finished. I went into Bank and it connected without any further issues, all my pokemon were still there.

    Thank you to Arkhangelisk! :D

    Arkhangelsk, thanks so much for sharing how to fix this! I had a mini heart attack before I started to Google and found your response. You're a lifesaver!

    I'm having trouble, still getting the same error after deleting the two title datas in Titles and the tickets that are in the tickets area. Any other suggestions?

    Hmm, so are these error codes just from using Luma(CFW) or from installing multiple tickets ?

    Chiming in to thank @Arkhangelsk for his solution. I was tearing my hair out when Tiksweep and FBI failed to fix the damn error.
