    Hello,

    I currently try to downgrade my old 3DS XL in 11.1.0.34E version to 9.2.

    So i made 2 backup nand in 11.1, they are identical.
    So i patch my 11.1 NAND backup with 3DS auto firm, and i flash my nand.

    Result, the console boot properly.

    I decide to use Ninjahax for entry point.
    Installation of Ninjahax give me a success message, then when the console try to boot on Ninjahax, that restart a the home menu with error message, i try QR 10.7 or 10.3 maybe a mistake of my part.

    If i take QR code 11.1.0.34 nothing happen, so i think my dump is correctly patch.

    Maybe a problem with a file in my sd card ( i try the last smealum starter pack ) , or bad qr code i scan.

    You do know that a downgrade from 11.1 needs a hardware mod or
    the Fieldrunner DSi exploit to work?

    Of course i know without an hardware mod, we can't dump 11.1 nand or patch it.

    Well, unless you also have Fieldrunners, Sodoku, Guitar Rock Tour, or Exidia, you can't downgrade your 3DS. Any model of it. The exploit that let us do so in 10.0 - 10.7 was patched, and the only way is through a legit copy of any of the four games.
    Also it's apparently impossible to get any of those four games unless you have a DSi and it's on firmware 1.4.3, and then you need some way to downgrade it so it's on 1.4.1.

    It seems that OP had done already a hardmod, but now he needs to enter *hax to actually continue the downgrade process so there's no need to start the "but you need DSi gaems or hardmod to proceed", OP is already past this point.

    Did you follow the instructions for ninjhax on 11.x? It's more than one qr code.

    Its ok, the downgrade is not the same than 11.0, you must use method of 15qr for ninjhax 11.1. In 11.0 we use 10.7 qr.

    Thanks to all....

    You need an installed dsiware game as they are the only things with access to nand.

    Nintendo allowed Dsi games to access nand without restriction!?!?
