    I was trying to downgrade and I got a Soft Brick but I can't got to recovery to install the 11.2 Firmware.
    Please Help I love my 3DS and don't want it to be a wast of money.

    Did you turn off your system during the downgrade?

    Have you tried turning it on without the SD card in?

    NO COFFEI!
    Something similar has happened with me to a friend's 3DS before and was completely unfixable =/. Hope you can successfully do this though! Try booting without the SD card inside.

    Take out the battery wait a minute and put it back in, this resets the wireless
