Can I launch CFW on 11.2 if I had it installed before?

    Just as the title suggests, can I launch CFW (I used Reinand) on 11.2 if I had it installed before 11.2? I accidentally updated sysNand to 11.2 a while back not knowing what nand I was on. So if I go into Homebrew and choose ReiNand, will it launch into emuNand, do nothing, or brick my console?
    If you couldn't already tell, I'm no pro at this.

    I imagine you don't have A9LH. If your SysNAND was on 9.2 before, and you've now updated to 11.2, then I'm afraid you've locked yourself out of using CFW or EmuNAND altogether.

    Well that sucks, anyway thank you for the reply.
    What's the easiest way to get cfw on 11.2. I already know about dsiwarehax, but sadly I don't have any. Are there other ways to downgrade 11.2, or do I have to wait?

    On 11.2 the only methods are: Hardmod, or DSiWare downgrade by doing a system transfer from a second 3DS (which already has CFW).

    You'll be able to, provided that the 3DS you buy is on 10.7 or lower. If you read through that link you'll find that system transfer DSiWare downgrade can now be done with almost any DSiWare title, not just the original four.

    Well that's cool!
    My original system (that I accidentally updated) is a New 3ds. If I buy a 3ds/2ds, will this still work.
    You've been a big helped, thank you!

    Yes, you can transfer from an O3DS/2DS to a N3DS, but not vice-versa, so you'll lose access to your N3DS NNID (if you care about it) on your N3DS unless you call Nintendo.
