    I was using sysupdater and after exactly my 51st time the cias starting installing. I got the error screen from nintendo and after a reset found out I was successfully at 9.2!!! What CFW is the best for N3ds?

    Wait. You 'got the error screen' and 'after a reset' were at 9.2? You mean you rebooted the system? Or you literally updated and downgraded again? I'm confused at how you went from a soft-brick to having a system on 9.2.

    sysupdater ran and then I got an error occurred. I rebooted and my console is now on 9.2.

    I am lost, your console is NOT bricked if is at 9.2 AND works. that means the downgrade succeeded regardless of the error message.

    Hey that happened to me, it suckered out in the middle of downgrading and said "An error has occured. Press POWER to turn off console." right? CFW and GW will probably not work for you even though it says you're on 9.2, cause not all of the .cia files installed correctly. I suggest re-updating back to 10.3 and doing the downgrade again. (but you should just try setting a CFW up anyways to see if it works tbh)

    Well, if it installed everything and "NATIVE_FIRM" at the end then i suppose everything was good. But if that didnt pop up and it did not say it was rebooting, then you might have a problem.

    In this case, I would test if they do work before attempting another downgrade and a potential brick.
