    Hello again folks! I am nearly complete with downgrading my new 3DS using Plilects guide. I am on step VIII here https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/DSiWare-Downgrade and it's saying move the contents of firmware.zip to the dgTool directory. I assume that one of the files I downloaded from the top section of "What you'll need" has been renamed from firmware.zip to something else. What goes in there? I tried putting the files from 11.1.0_to_10.4.0_n3ds to there, but no dice. Launching Fieldrunners just results in an error. Any idea where I get the correct files? Thanks.

    So apparently I was correct in putting the files from 11.1.0_to_10.4.0_n3ds in there. Here is the error I get when I launch Fieldrunners and click scores.

    "Version: v1.1
    Initializing sdmmc, insert SD card
    if not already inserted.
    sdmmc init failed.
    Waiting for sdcard to be inserted
    and initialized...."

    SD card is in there, what is fieldrunners actually launching?

    Should I redo the fieldrunners save on the old 3ds and copy it over again? The hack is working it seems. But something isn't loading correctly. I did the insertion of the n3ds firmware to the save file as required in the earlier section where it was edited on the 3ds #1.
