    So I recently did a failed 9.2 downgrade, and had to update back to 10.3, but now I'm kinda stuck, as BrowserHax doesn't(?) work now.
    So although I probably know the answer, is there any alternative to buying OoT3D or Cubic Ninja?

    I'm using a n3DS by the way.

    What do you mean by failed downgrade? Does it still boot to home menu?

    But it gives me the update warning when I launch the web browser, and I thought the bypass was patched?

    Yeah, I meant that the System Menu said 9.2.0-20U, but the console itself acted like it wasn't downgraded (such as FBI and CFW's not working properly)

    Patched if you update your system to 11.0.

    But that will mean no downgrading without another 3DS, right?

    DO NOT UPDATE!

    Set your time and date to 1/1/2000

    Just open the browser and click on "settings", scroll down to "clear save data"and click it.

    You'll return to home menu.

    Activate your camera and launch the QR code for the browserhax, it'll open the browser and ask you to set things anew, after it'll launch the homebrew, ;)


    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Homebrew access is available for all verions right now, but 11.0 has no downgrading available.

    He wasn't suggesting you update, merely telling you the bypass was only patched if you updated to the current system firm.

    Do I need to use a freshly formatted SD card?
    I tried using my existing one and it still gives me the update error after doing this.

    I found that it's better to start the Guide (and any other I might follow) with the console stocked (system settings formatted and clean formatted SD Card)

    Less errors.

    I just formatted my 3DS and SD card, and still get the same error after setting the date. :\
    I guess I'm probably better off purchasing OoT at this point.

    You'll also need a Powersaves device if you don't have one already.
