    I've been looking at older threads about this, but just wanted to be sure about something before going into it.

    I've purchased a New 3DS XL for a buddy of mine, and plan on getting A9LH with it (I've modded nearly 17 consoles prior, the rest of the process isn't new to me at all). My only concern is the fact that it came on firmware version 9.9, something I've never downgraded before. I've usually downgraded from 10.3 or 10.7.

    Should I downgrade directly from 9.9 to 9.2? Or should I update to 10.3 or 10.7 via sysUpdater, and THEN downgrade to 9.2? Thanks in advance :)

    The process is the same afaik, so you can just downgrade directly from 9.9 to save yourself some time.

    I just downgraded from 9.9 to 9.2 a couple of days ago for the first time. I used Plailect's guide and I had no issues going from 9.9 to 9.2. This was on an o3DS mind you. If you're being safe, I would do a format of the system memory before continuing as it is not worth taking any risks.

    EDIT: This table shows it has been done.

    Factory 9.9 will 100% have an error in progress.
    Do a second-time downgrade to fix it.

    Forgot to post back here after the fact...

    This did happen, so I was left with a partial downgrade. Going back into sysUpdater via Oot3dhax continued the rest of the downgrade, and got me to 9.2! The 3DS now has A9LH installed on it.

    Thank you everyone for the help!

    Sure, but you also have browserhax and menuhax which are faster in launching imo since you don't have to start a game

    ya that 3ds is fully hacked now with 11j a9lh. i didnt realize CN ninjax didnt need browser to work.

    9.8.0-0J last number is browser ver.

    0 means its just dummy stub and is non functional so i couldnt just do browser hax.

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    Use ninjhax and then install menuhax. With menuhax, you can launch sysUpdater and downgrade.
