    Here is how to fix the 3D slider brick using ntrboot without doing a full ctrtransfer:
    A second working 3DS is needed, or you can have someone dump the file in step 1-3 from their console and share it. Would this file be allowed to post here? If so it could be added to the instructions. Should be fine, right? It's just system config savedata.

    Instructions
    1. Load GodMode9 on the working console from ntrboot/B9S
    2. From the root GodMode9 menu, navigate to [1:] SYSNAND CTRNAND -> data -> {a folder with random numbers} -> sysdata -> 00010017
    3. Select 00000000, then select Copy to 0:/gm9/out
    4. Press START+R to power off the 3DS and copy this file to the SD card in the bricked console
    5. Load GodMode9 on the bricked console
    6. Navigate to [0: ] SDCARD and find the file you copied
    7. Press Y on the file to copy it
    8. Back out until you are back at the main screen and again navigate to [1:] SYSNAND CTRNAND -> data -> {a folder with random numbers} -> sysdata -> 00010017
    9. Press Y again to paste and unlock writing according to the onscreen instructions, relock when done
    10. Press A on the file you just copied and select Calculate CMAC
    11. Press START to reboot
    12. Go in System Settings and change anything that's wrong such as birthday, nickname etc. since the settings will be cloned from the working console.
    13. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Thanks to @TurdPooCharger for testing the steps to make sure they work and for pointing out that you also need to fix the CMAC.

    There are US/EU/JP folders in that release zip. Take the config out from the folder that matches your 3ds region.

    Thank you for posting this, I was finally able to boot the 2ds, but now how do I update the firmware? It's still on 3ds firmware with a stretched top screen.

    Can you go to system settings and update?

    No, it gives the message: "An error has occurred. Unable to update. The system will now be restarted." I'm pretty sure it said this when I tried to update it with safe mode as well.

    Wasn't the user supposed to simply restore the NAND backup (safe method) created before the downgrade and after installing A9LH on 2.1? Should work on B9S the same.

    I've read before that normal updates may fail on 2.1 downgraded consoles.

    Edit: (What I've read was for new series consoles that might brick when trying update from old 2.1 firmware) See below

    Oh that. It won't let you system update because you need to set up a user profile.

    Edit - Sorry, bad hyperlink. Fixed now.

    Right, I should've mentioned that I don't have the NAND backup since I bricked it years ago before I knew what I was doing.
    I'm not sure what you mean, It has my user info from my second 3ds. I made a Mii if that's what you meant, but that didn't work.

    Sorry, check my previous post again. The link that directs to the other post has been corrected.

    Ok I read your post, but in my case I already had those profile settings filled out since they carried over from the other 3ds, I tried changing all of them but it still gives that error message.

    Did you perform some sort of CTRTransfer (~NAND cloning) where you copied your Old 3DS (source system) ctrnand_full.bin, twln.bin, and twlp.bin images and flashed these over to your Old 2DS (target system)?

    Yeah, I just followed the steps in this post, are there more steps I can follow? Edit: I just realized, does it only work with an old 3ds? I used a new 3ds.

    I think I know why your o2DS can't system update. That 00000000 file you borrowed and swapped in from the n3DS is something known as the Config Savegame. This contains your user profile stuff like your LocalFriendCodeSeed and personal info regarding who owns that a particular 3DS system.

    I'm gonna go on a guess that your n3DS has a NNID linked to Nintendo server, so they have a record of that config or at least its LFCS. Why is the LFCS important? Well, it helps Nintendo identify whether or not your 3DS is eligible to download stuff from Nintendo eShop and theme shops. Anyone who tries to pull a fast one on Nintendo by doing a credit card charge back will quickly find their 3DS ultrabanned with the LFCS blacklisted from future eShop service, game updates, and system updates.

    Now, before you get too startled, your n3DS LFCS should not be blacked listed or banned for having used its config savegame on the o2DS. Nintendo server probably does not recognize the config belonging to your o2DS, so it stops you from system updating it.

    In order to fix this, you have two (2) options.

    (A) - Delete the foreign config savegame by going to:
    1. Godmode9 → [1:] SYSNAND CTRNAND/data/<ID0>/sysdata/00010017/00000000 → press (X) to delete.
    2. Press (START) to exit GodMode9. You will be asked to make a new user profile again. Turn off the o2DS.
    3. Add this CTRTransfer (Type D9) gm9 script to this directory and use the Bypass Profile Setup.
      • sdmc:/gm9/scripts/CTRTransfer (Type D9).gm9
      • Note: I am not entirely sure this script's latest v1.5 will work on a 2.1.0 CTRTransfer downgraded o2DS. I gifted my shortly possessed o2DS to a nephew before it could be fully test.
    4. If that script manages to get you passed the stuck 3D slide brick, fill out your user information and attempt system update again.
    (B) - Update the 3DS firmware with 11.5.0 CTRTransfer. You may also opt to fix the 3DS firmware with the CTRTransfer (Type D9) - CTRTransfer [same script as mentioned in (A)]. After the 3DS firmware is raised to 11.5.0, create a new user profile (may need to delete that config savegame), and then system update to 11.13.

    Ok, I tried option A, I ran the script in gm9 through Home -> Scripts and after rebooting it still put me in the 3ds setup, and after going through option B and rebooting, I get "An exception occurred" message with a Stack dump on the bottom screen

    Drats. Looks like I have a 'good' excuse in getting another o2DS down the road. Thanks for testing the Bypass Profile Setup on your firmware 2.1.0. More R&D brick work to be done. :|

    For option B, what is the exact stated error in the top screen? Processor, Exception type, Fault status, Current process.
    Did you do standard GM9 CTRTransfer (the one in the 3ds.hacks.guide) or the (Type D9) CTRTransfer?

    No problem, here's a picture of the error screen, I followed the 3ds hacks guide.
