    I tried to update the EMUNAND: I followed all the steps and I can bet my life on it that I had GW4.5 version written when updating the Firmware. Now I only see version 7.0.0 even after I restart my 3ds.

    Am I screwed?

    you probably went to settings, checked for the right version and then left the settings? because that reboots into normal sysnand mode... :(
    without a 4.5 backup and hardware flashing, you wont be able to go back to 4.5, sry

    When do people learn how to read.....

    Sorry OP, you're stuck.
    Either pay someone to flash your 4.5 backup back to your 3DS or suck it up and live with a 7.0 3DS

    I see thank you, i have the backup, but regarding the downgrader.. I know some modders but I don't think they are into 3ds scene. What hardware should be required for this operation?

    Well right now I am sending messages to all the modders I know asking them if they can do it and the price. Will keep it up to date.

    PS: I feel so annoyed right now, I have been up to date with the scene for years, had a psp fw 1.5 and a ps3 3.55 and never had any problems :(

    Fantastic! Now, do tell, did you perform the NAND dump using a Gateway or did you previously use a NAND flashing home-made kit? I kinda want to play my game on the safe side, but I'm not a 100% sure if the Gateway dumps are accurate, full dumps.

    pleas watch the video posted further up in this thread
    nand downgrades are possible, however, you need a backup of your old nand first and then you need to do some hardware modding (watch the video)
