    So i kept getting an error updating my FW on this part of his guide.

    "Update your 3DS again by going to System Settings, then “Other Settings”, then going all the way to the right and using “System Update”
    • Yes this is safe, stop asking about it.
    • If this gives you an error, set your DNS settings to “auto”
    • If this still gives you an error, restore your NAND backup before updating
    • Copy NANDmin.bin to the /files9/ folder on your SD card
    • If your backup is of a version between 4.0.0 and 4.5.0, put firmware.bin - in /luma/ (delete this file after updating your 3DS)
    • Open Hourglass9 from arm9loaderhax by holding (Start) on boot
    • Go to “SysNAND Backup/Restore”
    • Restore from NANDmin.bin
    • Press (Start) to reboot
    "

    So i restored my NANDmin.bin and it returned me to my original 9.0.0 Firmware.

    Now when i try to go back into Decrypt9 to downgrade back to 2.1.0 it just glitches out and forces me to reboot.

    I'm kind of stuck on what I should do and would love to get a little assistance on it :\

    Did you use Hourglass9 to restore your NANDmin.bin with the option: "restore sysNAND (keep A9HL)"?

    Can you still access Hourglass9 and the likes when you hold the corresponding button at Startup?
    If yes, you still have A9LH and you don't need to downgrade to 2.1

    Once you have downgraded, then installed a9lh, you are good. The re-flash of your backup is due to some systems not liking to make the jump from 2.1 all the way to 11.2. Now that you are back to 9.0, do as suggested and make sure you can launch bins at start-up by holding corresponding buttons. If so, go ahead and update to 11.2 and finish following guide.

    Read the guide and use Google.
