    Hello all!

    I have a very annoying error happening on two USA 11.0 N3DS XL NFIRM downgraded to 10.4 with AUTOFIRM.

    Everytime I try to downgrade using PlaiSysUpdater (or SafeSysUpdater) I get this "An error has occurred" black screen error a couple of seconds when the title ID 0004003000008f02 shows up. The other titles all installed successfully.

    Doing a couple of research I've found this title ID is the Home Menu.

    What I have tried so far:
    - Changing the SD
    - Unzipped the USA N3DS updates folder again to the SD

    If I use the same SD to other region consoles it works. Also, the majority of USA N3DS works as I have just downgraded another N3DS XL USA flawlessly using the same SD.

    Does anyone have any suggestion?

    Thanks!

    @Plailect, I'm tagging you for your "awareness" man. Thx for any help!

    It'd be nice to know what title it's sticking on.

    You can't just downgrade from 11.0. That's why you're getting an error. Other stuff such as a hardmod or the DSiWare downgrade has to be done first in order to downgrade from 11.0.

    Unless you've done either of these things and you just aren't telling us.

    That probably has something to do with your problem.

    I'm sorry if I didn't mention, but I'm using AUTOFIRM. ;)

    Thx for the feedback though!

    OP corrected!
    I'm using AUTOFIRM, so NFIRM is already 10.4

    That's not my issue.

    Thx for the feedback though!

    Well, I'll try filming it...

    It happens somewhat in the middle of the process and right when a new title appears the error happens...

    Bear with me for a sec!

    He's using the hardmod method to downgrade. He's using AUTOFIRM.

    I liked your signature man! LOL

    Got it...
    The title ID is 0004003000008f02

    I have just tried SafeSysUpdater and it fails in the same title ID.

    Thx!

    Try renaming your Nintendo 3DS folder, then trying again. Just an experiment.

    edit: that's home menu by the way, not surprising.

    Gotcha!
    I'll do it this way if it fails again because I'm trying something else.
    Reflashed the ORIGINAL 11.0 NAND to the console, used the "format" and messed around a bit with the console, like changing the theme, checking for update and stuff...

    Right now I'm redoing from scratch, like reading the NAND and doing the AUTOFIRM again...

    Will keep you guys posted.

    Thanks!

    Alright, I stumbled across this other GBATemp thread (OTPHeler related, here) where a user by name @Shaswati was having a "somewhat similar" issue and @dark_samus3 gave him this advise:
    I did exactly like him said and it worked :P
    Man, it was so easy, yet I didn't think about it... :(

    I had to "adjust" my FreakyHax data as I was using the 10.4 otherapp and the console was now a 9.2 "frankensNAND". So I put a 9.2 otherapp and finished the downgrade :)

    Thx for the help!
