    Hello,

    I'm French so I speak very little English but I come here to find answers to my questions.

    Console : Old 3DS
    Version : 10.7.0-32E
    SD card : 16 GB
    Access to Homebrew : Cubic Ninja (Sky3DS +)

    I already did a downgrade from my console and it worked. But I came back to the latest version. I wish downgrade yet to find a private header and to install CIA. The trouble is that I have an error code after the downgrade of the CIA files are installed when starting the console. Then when I turn back, the message is still there. I have to L + R + A + Up to regain my console:

    "An error has occurred.
    Turn off the console by holding down the power button and try again.

    i the problem persists, contact the Nintendo Service Centre, you will find information in the manual of the console and the support.nintendo.com site. "

    What is going on ? Thank you in advance ! And even forgiveness for my bad English.

    Sounds like you can't even enter Recovery Menu.... What if you put your CN cart and boot while holding A+B+X+Y+R? Try to use that as another opportunity to re-downgrade, and it should either fix your problem or downgrade successfully.

    You're not using PlaiSysUpdater, are you? If not, I highly recommend you switch to that one (Alternatively, SafeSysUpdater), then follow this guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    Between insane and insecure
    If you can enter recovery, you will need to update. From there you will need to back your saves, then reformat your system. This is how I got my boyfriend's 3DS to downgrade. I seriously tried all the downgraders and got the same results, then reformatted and it downgraded the first try.

    CrispyYoshi:
    Sorry, but what is a "CN cart"? I tried to make A + B + X + Y + R starting my 3DS, but nothing happens (it starts normally).
    I used SysUpdater on the site Pokémon Trash for "or 10.4 PLUS" ( http://www.pokemontrash.com/club/emulation-linkers-3ds/(9-3-10-3)-downgrader-en-9-2/ ). PlaiSysUpdater & SafeSysUpdater are two alternatives that I can try? Is that right?

    ---

    Crystal the Glaceon:
    I have access to the console settings and can "Format console". That's what you want me to do? It is not risky?

    ---

    Edit : J'ai l'impression que vous n'avez pas compris que ma console fonctionne. Non ? Je l'ai remise à jour en faisant L+R+Haut+A et je peux tout faire sur ma console, à l'exception de la downgrader car le message d'erreur s'affiche.

    Thank you

    (Off-Topic) Could you please talk English? This is and English forum, so please follow the rules ;).
    Back on topic, I think, with my poor French knowledge, that he said that his 3DS works but he can't downgrade the 3DS cause that error appears on the screen while trying to downgrade.
    A CN card means a copy of Cubic Ninja, an exploitable game.

    I'm really sorry :(... If you ever give me a site to speaking French, I admit.

    You very well summarized my problem thank you!
    I have Cubic Ninja on Sky3DS+. If I hold A + B + X + Y + R at startup Cubic Ninja, nothing happens..

    You are talking about me? If yes, hehehe :shy:.
    I can't help you so much, because I need always a noob guide to do something important with the console. Don't do nothing with Cubic Ninja at the moment, 'cause I think they were talking about a brick or something like if you lost a entrypoint to HBL. You could use SafeSysUpdater to check the files, and if all is good then try to downgrade again. If not, try to use other SysUpdater version. Do you have GBA titles installed? You could format SysNAND if nothing that we say works. I hope I can help you! I don't know if this is linked with your problem, but maybe your downgrade wasn't "perfectly made". You can use this to check it: https://github.com/ihaveamac/downgrade-check or/and this one: https://github.com/svanheulen/downgrade_check

    I have not GBA titles installed.

    ---

    I just use "downgrade-check" and I have this information:

    Unfortunately you did not seem to downgrade to 9.2 properly.

    Installed NATIVE_FIRM: 2.50-11
    9.2 NATIVE_FIRM: 2.46-0

    A: exit
    X: reboot


    So there is a problem here :/. An idea ?

    ---

    I'll try to download SafeSysUpdater to check files.

    I think you have a Frankenfirmware. Use this from the 2nd step: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-r...mware-w-o-upgrading-to-10-3-or-higher.413368/

    SafeSysUpdater says everything is OK, so I tried to downgrade through SafeSysUpdater but I had the same problem ... I don't know what to do :( !

    Minipasta will launch FBI to launch the .cia of SysUpdater? It's supposed to be OK after?

    Power on the 3DS.
    Go HBL.
    Launch MiniPasta.
    You are on the HomeMenu now.
    Enter HBL one more time.
    Search FBI in HBL (.3DSx).
    Install SysUpdater.cia.
    Exit from HBL.
    Power off your 3DS.
    Go HBL again.
    Launch MiniPasta again.
    You are in the HomeMenu, enter SysUpdater.cia.
    Press Y.
    Profit?

    I don't know if I'm saying something stupid, so be careful. You could wait for someone else. I don't wanna brick your 3DS!

    @DJCarlos yeah, he said in french that he can downgrade, but it gets an incomplete downgrade (softbrick), and he can use recovery to get back to 10.7.
    Using plailect sysupdater did work?

    Yes, I can use the recovery to return to 10.7.
    SysUpdater / SafeSysUpdater don't work with .3dsx. I will try to do what DJCarlos gave me. Thank you.. !

    (Do you want to learn French with me? :'D)

    Well learnt.

    @EternalStay You should probably stop for today, till we know something more, there's a maintenance ongoing.

    You could probably get a 10.8 firmware

    I'll wait as you advise me @Patxinco. Could you leave a message here if there is new? Thank you !

    @DJCarlos: "De rien!" Good hahaha :P! To learn French, you should already be able to communicate easily, which is not the case with my catastrophic English :3.

    Whoops, this is getting off-topic, so the admins probably delete our messages... Why don't we talk in my profile? My English also sucks, so don worry!
    On-topic: You should wait and see if Nintendo release the 10.8 firmware. If you upgrade to 10.8 probably you cannot downgrade it never!!

    Off-Topic: Right, sorry. I'll come talk to you later (it will allow me to improve myself as I soon examinations in English)!

    On-Topic: So if I understand correctly, I should not be updated unless we learn that we can always downgrade? And if that is the case, SysUpdater will be updated and will probably be more stable, right?

    Yes. Don't do nothing yet. You should wait till tomorrow if Nintendo releases 10.8. It could block the "exploit" to downgrade, and you never could do it again. SysUpdater could be useless with the next firmware, so please be careful.
