    Hi,
    Just downgraded my 3dsXL EU from 9.2 to 4.5 WITHOUT owning a Gateway Card.

    The process went fine but now i get this error message when playing legit Eshop downloaded games:
    "The SD Card was removed. Press the Home button to return to the home Menu"

    Also when i started for the first time Mii plaza i got the message "Mii plaza data are corrupted..."
    and i lost all my previous Streetpass hits.

    The question:
    Is this normal or maybe something went wrong during the downgrade process?

    Thx. Now back to waiting to get my Gateway card shipped : D

    this is actually normal. I would''ve recommended waiting for your gateway card because you could've formatted your emunanad and had all of your previous games right on your emunand along with a working eshop.
    I do believe you should be able to upgrade back to your old sysnand though if you hold up when you select the downgrade option

    You dont meet the minimum required firmware for that title thats what it means

    Your saves and everything are still there dont fret

    Street pass was "corrupt" for me aswell but I updated again using a game and my miiplaza was fix

    So what's your advice?

    1) Go back to my 9.2 sysnand and then, when i get my Gateway, downgrade and format the emunand?
    2) Simply wait for the Getaway to apply the Blue Card exploit?

    Thx to all : D
