    Am I screwed? I think I am.
    Downgraded through OOTHAX and PlaiSysUpdater, following Plailect's A9LH guide.

    It may sound stupid but ... try booting with your SD out ..?

    Sounds like a softbrick

    I guess we have to ask this first, have you tried the "boot without SD" thing?

    EDIT: Ninja'd!

    No luck there either. Probably a softbrick, and I'd be fine with that if anything actually worked on 11.0.

    Try taking the ss out. Of that doesn't work try entering recovery. If that doesn't work you'll need a hardmod and NAND backup

    Don't update yet , maybe there's a solution

    Can you even access recovery at all ?

    Or sys-recover and update to 11 and wait for downgrading to be fixed. It's possible.

    I'm updating now through recovery. A shame too, given that this is a friend's 3DS and I told him I would A9LH it.

    throws 3DS at wall

    I'll have to try again later on, but for now, it's about worthless. Quite odd how it (soft)bricked an o3DS using completely safe and reliable tools but when I downgraded my n3DS with (at the time) newer unreliable tools it worked perfectly.

    You can't downgrade on 11.0

    Yes, yes I know, but it's just horrible luck that that "small" chance happened to me with that seems to be the most reliable downgrader.

    Did you format the console "before" downgrading? I just want to know since I'm currently doing a9lh right now.

    Nope, neither the o3DS (which I bricked) or the n3DS (which is working fine) was formatted.

    I got a similar problem times ago.

    I downgrade my new 3ds 9.9
    With a tutorial for 10.6 - 10.7.

    Durint process i got "An error has occured"

    I shut down console and its boot with 9.2

    But Gateway refuse works and i couldn't setup cfw and emunand. So i decide try again

    I repeat processo without touch anything. I meaning i didnt update to 10.7. While 9.2 frankfirmware i tried again and works.

    Complete downgrade. And o setup emunand after that a9lh.

    So anyone knows what happens? Why its give error fisrt attemp but works second.

    And its happens twice with mine and a friend new 3ds.

    Well the funny part it's boot like was downgraded, but doesnt let setup cfw
    So i do again and its complete downgrade;

    Did twice, 2 different new 3ds same 9.9

    So my question it's how i supose to downgrade a NEW 3DS 9.9 out of box? I didnt find nothing about.
