    So i tried to downgrade from 11.2 to 9.2 by following a Tutorial.

    i did folowed every step and everything got well but after i installed Safehax and tried to reboot while holding the start button the power light turned on but nothing else. no wifi light, no screen light. so i think that i bricked my 3ds.

    Can i fix it?.

    What guide did you follow? You should only follow this guide to install cfw https://3ds.guide/

    Thats you problem. Youtube guides are VERY outdated and one should never use them when installing something that can cause a brick.
    3ds.guide however is always up to date and is extremely safe.

    That's the problem,Plailect updated his guide like 3 hours ago,and if your 3ds is bricked,it's pretty much your own fault then,you should always follow plailects guide! ( 3ds.guide )

    Try booting while pressing select.
    What video did you follow, and at what step you "bricked"?

    So,you're actually not installing safehax,safehax is just trying to boot into decrypt9,because once you're there you can do pretty much everything,it might habe been an issue with waithax or fasthax.

    Are you talking about this?

    If so, you did nothing wrong, it is the guy who made the tutorial who screwed things up (a problem with the otp if I'm not mistaken)

    Sounds like you borked your 3ds, oh well, should of done some research first

    If you can access recovery (A+R+L+Up(DPad)) you can just try again but seriously reading isn't difficult.

    Don't follow youtube

    He's not spanish so I don't think so,but whatever,you should always follow plailects guide,it may take longer to read,but it's better than a bricked 3ds xD

    Well, the video was uploaded exactly 9 hours ago like he said, so it could be.

    EDIT: now confirmed by OP.

    Do you have a backup of your nand and a hardmod? If you bricked, that's the only way to fix your 3DS.
