    So i just tried to test to install the zelda four swords safegame for the downgrade.
    Its an old A9LH 3DS 11.2

    When i start the game it just freezes with a white screen.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have the boot.nds file on the root of the SD card?

    You need to put it there or it would freeze up like what you said. Let me know if it worked for you.

    Also, did you "inject" the public.sav file into the save?

    The only thing i did:
    1. Press (A) on public.sav and copy it
    2. Press (B) to get back to the main menu
    3. Navigate to TWL NAND -> title -> 00030004
    4. Navigate to the folder for your game and region:
      • Fieldrunners USA Region: 4b464445
      • Fieldrunners EUR Region: 4b464456
      • Legends of Exidia USA Region: 4b4c4545
      • Legends of Exidia EUR Region: 4b4c4556
      • Legends of Exidia JPN Region: 4b4c454a
      • Guitar Rock Tour EUR Region: 4b475256
      • Guitar Rock Tour USA Region: 4b475245
      • The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords EUR Region: 4b513956
      • The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords USA Region: 4b513945
    5. Navigate to the data folder
    6. Press (A) on the existing public.sav and delete it
    7. Press (A) on the current directory and paste public.sav
    8. Press (B) to get back to the main menu
    9. Press (Start) to exit
    10. Launch your DSiWare game on the source 3DS
    11. Test if the save is functional
      • Fieldrunners: Touch the ‘Scores’ button at the main menu
      • Legends of Exidia: After pressing (A) or (Start) at the two title screens, select the first save slot and press continue
      • Guitar Rock Tour: Scroll down and go to High-Scores -> Drums -> Easy
      • The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords: Just start the game
      • If your game has an error about boot.nds, then the exploit has been successful

    Are you sure i need the boot.nds? The guide only mentions that in the Section VII on the target 3ds
    I am still on my source 3DS

    Yes. Put it both on the source and the target 3ds. I have done this myself and it worked.

    Sorry if I jump in here. I can't seem to understand the guide but are you suppose to run the DSiWare game from Sysnand on the CFW 3DS? Mine is 9.2 and I intended to keep it like that and I do appriate that I found this thread because I would probably whitescreen as well.

    1. You are supposed to have a 3ds with CFW.
    • That 3DS needs to have the DSiWare
    • You NEED the boot.nds on the root of the SD card.

    To clarify.
    For zelda four swords White screen is the intended behaviour!


    Its not necessary to copy boot.nds to the SOURCE

    I see. I never tried installing the hack on that game. Only field runners and Legend of Exidia

    I prefer Sysnand. Because emunand is not tied to it. As long as you have a9lh

    It's not necessary but it is useful to double check before pulling the trigger and transferring.

    I'm getting a white screen on the target 3DS after following the guide with 4swords. Yes, I have boot.nds on the target sd card, yes I copied the save. What am I missing here?

    You won't be able to system transfer on 9.2 even with httpwn. The two systems must have the same NATIVE_FIRM. If you have a9lh there is no reason not to update to 11.2.

    Uhm thanks for replying but I already got it downgraded and fixed. I used my Emunand and made sure the exploit worked by even installing a copy on my sysnand.

    Why did you mention your sysNAND then if you were doing it on emuNAND?
