    Hello all!

    I'm trying to downgrade a 11.1.0-34U console and right when CTRTOOL.EXE tries to extract the "original firm.bin" I get an "unknown file" error.

    Let me back up a little bit. I'm using REBOOT.MS Autofirm version with 11.1 N3DS.cia.

    If I issue the command "ctrtool --contents=contents1 for any other "old" cia file (10.4 or 11.0) and later issue ctrtool --exefsdir=<dir> contents1 is extracts the firm.bin right to the <dir> folder, but for some reason when I try this for 11.1 I get the "unknown file" issue.

    Will it be an issue with ctrtool or the 11.1.cia file?

    Thanks!

    Yeah! That was the issue...
    Switched to a good one and it's OK now...

    Although I still get a blue screen afrer a good autofirm pass.

    Miranda, do you have used the nandcheck in the files before the first try?

    Hey!
    Nope I didn't... but I always dump the NAND 2 times, compare their MD5 and only proceed if they match.
    Besides, reflashing the backup NAND brings the console back to life...
