    I accidentally updated to 9.8 from 9.2 whilst trying to update rxTools' emunand. I do have a backup of my Sysnand however. Is there a way to downgrade using it?

    Dude I did the same thing, and I can tell you there is no way right now other than hardmodding. Either get someone to do it, or if you're handy with soldering, try it yourself. Apparently Gateway's working on 9.8 sysnand support, so that will be, ahem, soon. Sorry about your misfortune.

    Hard mod it.

    It's really easy if you're on an O3DS XL. If you're on a small one though, good luck

    That's what they said in a reply to someone's email. They gave no date or any indication when such an upgrade to their firmware will come. It could be tomorrow, next month, next year.
