    You can only downgrade if you have a NAND backup from before 11.3
    11.3 patched out all software downgrades, as well added a NATIVE_FIRM requirement to the homemenu. This basically made hardmod/dsiware downgrade impossible to do.

    1- Download http://chunk.io/f/014612541fa04235a6f7593c86a4a200.3dsx
    2- Rename 014612541fa04235a6f7593c86a4a200.3dsx to Cakes.3dsx and overwrite your Cakes.3dsx on 3ds
    3- Launch cakes from Homebrew Launcher

    I updated to 11.3 and got black screen. I believe I am on arm9loaderhax and was on older version of cakes. I think I replaced all the proper files. Held L to get into CakesFW190 options. Set options Block FIRM..., Survive reboots..., Disable signature checks.

    I select Boot CFW and get a black screen.

    Bottom screen debug log is

    Loaded config file
    Loading NATIVE_FIRM. . .
    Loaded FIRM
    FIRM seems not encrypted
    ARM9 FIRM binary seems not encrypted
    Fixing arm9 entrypoint. . .
    Loading TWL_FIRM. . .
    Failed to load FIRM
    Loading AGB_FIRM. . .
    Failed to load FIRM
    Loading cakes
    Loaded selected cakes

    any help appreciated.

    edit: I'm not sure what I was doing wrong. Probably my fault with all the different guides out and not being completely up to date with info but I ended switching to Luma. Replaced the arm9loaderhax.bin with the latest Luma3D github release and it booted into Luma options and then I could boot into 3ds menu and games. Thanks to all the devs always.

    That will not work, they updated without the FIRM protection turned on and removed their A9LH. There is no way to boot into a CakeFW with OFW 11.3

    Do you have DsWiFiPWN installed?

    Edit: I mean the guy who updated without the FIRM patches

    So it appears your 3ds_injector actually doesn't work on 11.3. I made a mistake during my testing and completely overlooked this issue until I did further testing.

    The version I built into my pack does work - at least the regionfree patch!

    Not sure if I just took the 11.1/2 version and hacked the recipe to declare it as 11.3-kernel compatible (probably yes since I also already changed /injector to /cakes/injector) or I actually redownloaded the sources, but I'm running 11.3 and can run nico nico douga :)

    Double checked, yep I used his 11.1 version and added 11.3 support, "Jerry-Shaw" on github actually posted one

    Tested out out patch and it is indeed working ^_^
    It looks like when I was doing my tests, I accidentally booted into the CFW on my CTRNAND instead of CakesFW.

    I just made little changes to the fork from @Wolfvak . Thanks to @Wolfvak and @mid-kid . Really need region free. What's more, I moved some paths from the root to cakes folder instead for better controlling.

    BTW, is there anyone knowing what is "switching out nand header first..." when doing ctrnand transfer to 2.1 on N3DS, since I cannot find the otpless guide now.
    One of my friends met this problem, and can do nothing on hacking to A9LH.

    Quick question, probably already been asked, but if I use an older TWL_FIRM and older AGB_FIRM with a newer NATIVE_FIRM will i brick?
