    Hi, apologies for being a noob and all, but I've been following Plailect's guide to downgrade my New 3DS to 9.2. I got an error in the middle of installation, which the guide says should've left me with a partial downgrade, but my DS won't boot at all, instead just leaving me with black screens. Followed the guide to the letter; is it possible I've bricked or is there a way to fix this?

    Try taking out the SD card and try booting.

    Have you tried booting without the SD card inserted? Have you tried booting into recovery mode?

    Can't tell if you bricked or you have Menuhax installed, if you have it installed before the downgrade then boot the 3ds without the sd card, if it's still a black screen try booting into recovery mode

    Thanks for the quick responses (this is probably something you get a lot I'm sorry). I realized I probably should've searched before making a thread, but panic mode took over. It boots without the SD card just fine.

    That's good. Just put your SD card back in and continue the guide, which should be redoing the downgrade.

    Put the sd back inside and select a new theme while in the homemenu and it should override the menuhax you have installed

    Nothing boots with the SD card in, not menuhax nor the home menu.

    Put your SD card back in after booting without it.

    Menuhax isn't working because your 3ds is 9.2 or partially if it , to delete boot without the sd card and put it back in and select a theme to remove it

    You gotta stop telling people this, it's bad, outdated advice.

    Menuhax is no longer just themehax, it's also shufflehax and SDiconhax too. Simply changing the theme no longer removes it.

    You now need to delete the homemenu extdata instead. From Plailect's guide:
