    Hey.

    So me and a friend of mine tried to downgrade his 3DS from 9.4 to 9.2 with PlaiSysUpdater, when apparently the 3DS crashed in the middle of the downgrade and the "An error has occurred" screen showed up.

    It does boot into the home menu and browserhax is working properly, but we can't downgrade again - it always freezes on the "Hax Init..." prompt.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks!

    Today I installed A9LH on my brand new N3DS XL FE Fates Edition, I had the same problem as you are having right now. Downgrading with sysUpdater instead of Plaisysupdater did the trick for me ;)

    Sorry for the dumb question, but how do you get A9LH on the N3DS? I thought it couldn't downgrade to 2.1 to get the OTP because it never came with that firmware.

    There is an extra "unbricking" proccess in the guide.

    Well, that was sorted a few months ago.
    Now you can unbrick 2.1.0 for OTP

    sysUpdater didn't work as well, but we managed to solve it.
    We tried installing menuhax and it worked, so we booted with straight to HBL and finished the downgrade using PlaiSysUpadter.
    Worked like a charm.
    Thanks to everyone.
