    Title.
    I don't know what went wrong, I followed the steps but I might have ended up downgrading the sysnand somehow. I don't know, but it ended up as 2.1 at the final steps of downgrading to 2.1. What do I do? I don't want to freak out, and I hope I don't have to.

    EDIT: I can boot without SD card, but it's 2.1.

    Do you have a working 2.1 NAND, or get a blue screen and can't do anything? I don't really understand what's your current situation.

    You're supposed to be on 2.1 Sysnand now you need to dump your OTP

    I got the blue screen when I tried plugging in the hardmod modified sd reader. But it turns on without an sd card, black screen with sd card.

    Have you tried launching OTPHelper? (It happens at roughly that point in the guide)

    Turns on and works without SD card inserted? Then it's alright if you go on.

    I thought you were supposed to get a blue screen when you plug in a hardmodded 3ds with the sd adapter thing?

    Make sure arm9.bin and arm11.bin are on your SD card
    Boot without SD card
    INSERT THE SD CARD AFTER BOOTING (Genius amiright :P)
    then type http://dukesrg.github.io/2xrsa.html?arm11.bin into the internet browser

    Then the profit

    No it's in the guide, lol
    Follow section 1 of part 5, then what I said is literally the beginning of section 2 (excluding the genius amiright bit)

    All right, I didn't check the part 5. That's the problem. I just finished part 4 and noticed this.

    All right, I have to do the full install from the OTPhelper, but that's not an option. What do I do now?

    Use the latest version of OTPhelper. That is an old version.

    How do I update OTPhelper? I have the .zip of v.90 but I don't know where to put the files from the zip. You know, besides where the old ones were (but I didn't see them all, the hardmodder put the files there I think)
