    Okay, so I used to have 9.2.0 firmware and I downgraded to 4.3 using go.gateway-3ds exploit and downgrade.dg. I want to get back up to 9.2. I made a nand dump using the exploit before downgrading. Is there any way I can get to 9.2 again?

    Restore your NAND.
    Do not do a system update. You will go to 9.4.

    Idk why you would want to do that, but you need a hardware mod to inject the nand back into your system

    What if you were on 9.2 and then downgraded and then formatted your system, could you still restore it?

    As long as you have a backup of your nand and your 3ds is hardware modded you can do whatever you want to your firmware.

    even without owning a gateway or a flashcart of any kind? I was getting ready to get my gateway this week but RHS shut down so i'm getting refunded in 3-7 days.

    You can also restore via software by putting your nand.bin on your big SD card, running the gateway exploit and holding up on the d pad when you select downgrade fw

    EDIT:
    Beware that gateway reccomends only messing with nand backups and downgrading if you have a hardware mod if anything goes wrong.

    Lots of wrong answers here.

    If you have a nand dump of 9.2 and are not on 9.4 you can certainly upgrade back to 9.2 without a hardware mod so relax. Search through the threads for the tutorial.

    As to why the OP might want to do that? Lots of reasons, including encryption compatibility with existing saves on retail carts.

    Wouldn't have a nand dump without a card would he? Unless someone has found some work around for that as well.

    I have no fucking idea.
    Yes.
    I downgraded from 9.2 to 4.5 via Gateway, and then restored my NAND by backing up the 9.2 one, putting it on my SD Card and holding UP on the GW exploit (Click Downgrade, but hold UP at the same time)

    That is accurate, though I would still look up a thread that discusses it to make sure you have all the steps correct and any other tips and pitfalls.

    Fuck, thorasgar when I go to the gateway-3ds exploit it crashes me to the home menu. I have Launcher.dat on the root of my sd card along with my nand.bin

    It is supposed to do that. It is called auto booting to emunand. When the screen turns white/grey hold the left trigger, you will boot to the Gateway Menu.
