    I just recently downgraded, and i've had to have tried over 60+ times to get the Gateway Launcher to boot up. I have launcher.dat in the root, using the HBL method but it isnt working.

    Could it be because my downgrade went weird in the middle? During installation it just said "An error has occured. Press the power button" so i restarted but my 3DS became 9.2 after.

    I mean im on 9.2 but i cant access Gateway... is there any way i can fix my installation? Maybe it didnt install all of the files when i downgraded. Im currently trying to rerun the downgrade program but it isnt booting up either... im gonna keep trying on that one.

    edit: Problem solved, since i had an error in installation i had to re-update back up to 10.3 and do the downgrade again. After that GW launcher started to load.

    Uhhhhhhh.. If it errored during downgrade, you need to go back to 10.3 and try again.

    Yeah. If it errored, that means something didn't install properly. So, you must have been pretty far in the installation.

    Eh, kind of. I would say it installed maybe like 10 or 15 .cia files at max. Back up to 10.3, going to give it another go

    Thanks @Mchief298 ! I went back up to 10.3, and after a ton of tries on the sysUpdater got it running again. All of the .cia's installed including NATIVE_FIRM at the end, it rebooted and im on 9.2 Redid ninjhax and booted GW launcher, success! Formatting EmuNAND now. :D
