    I'm using an Old 3ds, FW 9.2.
    I attempted to downgrade to 2.1 for my otp file. I did backup my nand before I did that. What do I do?

    EDIT: Partial downgrade, works without my sd card in it.

    Just curious, did you try to boot the console without the SD card inserted?

    You will need to hardmod your 3DS to do anything with it at this point.

    as long as you change it to 2.1 insteade of 9.2 then yes, it should still work (like rescan the qr code for 2.1) however, it may be only the older versions (1.1) that work
    this means differnt files and such.

    Did you try downgrading with your sysnand? You're supposed to downgrade your emunand, then restore that emunand to sysnand if everything went well. Follow directions.

    When i downgraded to 2.1 I also got a black screen. I just removed the sd cars and it worked. Once on i just reinserted the Sd card in and continued the process without the need to downgrading again.

    I always do like this on o3ds lol its just faster and I know my files are good. Anyways have you tried simply dumping otp and seeing it works? Getting a black screen with Sd inserted always happens to me when downgrading directly from sysnand just reinsert it while powered on with otphelper on sd and try at least

    Thanks for your replies. I took the SD card out, went to the Internet browser, popped my card back in, and used the gateway menu to restore my sysnand. I'm not gonna try to downgrade again. Fuck that shit.

    Not to sound like a douche but you really gotta try again, you have a partial Downgrade which means certain things won't work now, who knows what but half your system is 2.1 half is 9.2, whatever you do don't update

    Just downgrade your emunand first, like https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki tells you to. That way if the downgrader fails its not a big deal.
