    Hi guys,
    I accidentally updated my SysNand to 11.1.0-34 but, I still have a copy of it in 9.2 version
    My question is, if I manage to enter hbl and run decrypt9, could I be able to write back my nand backup? Or I lack privileges to do so?

    You need arm9 privileges. Which is why we must downgrade to 9.2.\

    Edit: So to answer your question, you can't, since you lack the privileges needed for Decrypt9.

    You would lack privileges, as Decrypt9 requires a kernel exploit.
    But, you have 3 choices,
    1. Wait until exploit
    2. do a hardmod
    or 3. DSI fieldrunners exploit

    First choice: Not the most reccomended one
    Second choice: useful if you don't have another 3ds and don't want to risk it ever again
    Third choice: Useful if you have another cfwed 3ds. Also the most cheap one

    If dsi exploit has kernel access, booting decrypt9 via dsiware exploit would allow me to run and restore my nand? Sounds like a good option
    EDIT: sorry I didn't clarify I already own another CFW 3DS, so maybe I could set up a new emunand on it only for dsiware purposes, so maybe I could:
    - set up new emu nand
    - buy fieldrunners and enter the save
    - transfer to updated 3ds
    - execute exploit and put decrypt9 boot.3dsx in sd root
    - restore nand

    Does that sound good?

    As said below, it won't work. Thanks, Filo.
    You'll have to try downgrading and then restoring.

    it doesn't work. he first needs to downgrade manually anyway becuase when you use the exploit it downgrade only your NFIRM to 10.4 and there is no arm9 exploit there. only an arm11 kernel

    You need to further downgrade it prior to running decrypt9. Here is the full guide to get you back to 9.2:

    Downgrade NATIVE_FIRM to 10.4: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/DSiWare-Downgrade

    Set up homebrew using 11.1 payload: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Homebrew-Launcher-(No-Browser)

    Downgrade to 9.2: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/9.2.0-Downgrade

    It is at this point you can run decrypt9 from HBL.

    Is there a reason you don't want to A9LH the console? This would have saved you all the work as you can update SysNAND on it ands till retain privileges.

    A9LH: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Get-Started

    The only reason was to be a lazy one hahaha, when I downgraded this console, this did not exist, but, looking at the current situation I think the best choice is to downgrade and install A9LH and avoid further problems =)

    Thanks everyone for your help!!

    I also updated my SysNAND, but by no means it was a mistake, Unlimited AL9H Works!

    I use menuhax on one of my systems but I have it set boot directly to emunand to be honest I haven't seen my sysnand in like 3 months because I have no reason to poke around it the last time I used it was to install a GBA title..so I don't think it's a menuhax issue it's More of a careless issue

    Can't you write back NAND backups with DSiWare hax? So can't he just start the DSiWare downgrade guide and then instead of backing up his NAND and patching it, just write back his 9.2 backup?

    People probably do not notice the difference. Between games in folders, emunand originally created as a copy of sysnand, they probably never changed their background colors.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    The guide always has you download to 10.4. It is probably just downgrading the firm to 10.4, and from there you can then proceed to a true 9.2 downgrade. If it were possible to downgrade to anything from 11.x, then wouldn't he have written the guide to downgrade straight to 9.2?

    KittyKat: No. The exploit that they use to downgrade 11.x firm only allows for minor downgrades (11.x->10.4, 10.4->9.6, etc).

    You have missed the fact that he has a backup from 9.2. Most users do not have this.
    DSiWare hax allows reading and writing NAND backups. The "exploit" you're thinking of is being able to patch NATIVE_FIRM without breaking the backup. You still make the backup, patch it, and write it back.

    Got ya. Then run Decrypt9 with the hack instead of dgtool. Sounds like he can skip a few steps. YAY FOR KITTEH!

    Actually, you're wrong. You CAN backup and restore the NAND via DSiWareHax.
