    Hello !

    I have N3DS, on CWF 9.2 luma, but update (:/) on 11.2

    I have see this tuto : https://3ds.guide/homebrew-launcher-(soundhax) for downgrade to 2.1, but, i can't use this tuto for only restore sysnand to 9.2 ? I have dump of my sysnand on 9.2 on my pc.

    Thank's you ^^

    Not too sure what you're saying, bit of you want to install arm9loaderhax from a 9.2 menuhax setup, thats easy. Im assuming you want to flash your emunand to your sysnand, in which case, follow this guide http://3ds.guide, select your 3ds setup, and at the very end when it asks you to restore your nand backup, restore your emunand backup instead. This will bring over all the apps and themes from emunand to sysnand. Make sure to delete the emunand afterwards.

    Thank's for reply.

    Nop, i don't need to install alh9hax.

    I need just to restore my sysnand to 9.2, and re install my cwf luma ( i have dump of sysnand on 9.2 and dump of emunand )

    So you're on 11.2 and want to restore your 9.2 backup and get your emunand back. Ok, thats possible, but first let me put something into perspective, and if you still dont want to fine. Downhrading to 2.1 with modern exploits is sooooo easy to do, it's arguably easier to install arm9loaderhax now then menuhax, as now you can skip the initial 9.2 downgrade. You just downgrade to 2.1, install a9lh, and restore any backup you made. Thats it. And the proccess to do this as you're probably aware is on http://3ds.guide if you're interested. If you still want to restore the backup, just get up to the decrypt9 part and restore your sysnand backup.

    Yes, putting an N3DS into sleep mode on 2.1 is a good way to brick, but you are only on that version long enough to open the browser and input a URL.

    That said, you absolutely can use Decrypt9 to just restore your previous NAND backup if you so choose.

    Actually, i would restore your 11.2 emunand, since your emunand has all of your games on it. You can just stop using emunand entirely if you do this.

    It's ok. After you do this, your 3ds will boot up into luma cfw, so you have no use for an emunand. You can be on 11.2 sysnand and have cfw on the sysnand. That's why you should restore your emunand backup into your sysnand, so you can have all of your games and apps from your emunand onto your sysnand.

    No risk at all, and if something really did happen, you could use arm9loaderhax to restore your sysnand. Also you can install unsigned cias to sysnand with arm9loaderhax.

    Yes, the tutorial well tell you how to downgrade to 2.1 get a9lh, and restore your backup afterwards. The only thing you have to know is at the end, when it says restore your sysnand, restore your emunand backup instead.

    After running safehax and getting decrypt9WIP to open you can definitely restore your 9.2 backup. Just make sure your backup is in the files9 folder and select it from the sysNAND Restore options.

    Do not restore your emuNAND to sysNAND unless you've installed A9LH first. If you don't want to install A9LH then you don't have to.
