    Hello.
    I was downgrading my O3DS from 9.2 to 2.1.0 when I suddenly got an error screen. Everything was going fine until this point. When I try to boot my 3DS now, I´m greeted by a black screen. I can´t seem to get in to HBL either to restore my backup. Help me please!
    EDIT: Oh no, I belive I forgot to fix menuhax. You have to do it each time you format your 3DS, right?
    EDIT 2: Updating the system through recovery mode seems to be the only option, huh?

    Just remove the sd card when booting the 3ds and check if it loads

    You downgraded emuNAND or sysNAND?

    Did you follow the Plailect guide?

    NEVERMIND.

    If the downgrade failed, restore the emuNAND and try again. If you flashed the emuNAND to sysNAND, OTPHelper didnt say you that the emuNAND was broken? At this point, you can only update your console to 11.0 and downgrade with a hardmod.

    Seems like it. The only thing I wanted to do was to play some darn cias... The system doesn´t even want to update. It just loads at 1% then says that it failed... R.I.P 3DS 2011-2016.

    No. I came to the downgrading section and after a while it gave the error screen without any warning...

    Happened to me too. When I did this, I though it was okay. I continued to flash my emuNand over my sysNand. Do NOT do this! Just repeat the downgrade process if possible, or restore back to your latest emunand! Just do NOT flash your emunand to your sysNand! You will brick! I did this yesterday...

    Just restore back to your latest emuNand bin file, and redo the downgrade

    I would have done that if I hadn´t forgotten to install menuhax... A simple mistake like this ruined my 3DS.

    Giving me tips are futile, sadly. I have already lost my 3DS since it doesn´t even want to update...

    Okay, here is what you do. As you are booting up your 3DS hold these buttons:
    L+R+A+Up on the DPad
    You will be given an option to update

    Umm... I don´t know/remember. I followed Plailects guide and was at part 4, 10.

    Yea I know, thanks anyway. The problem is that my 3DS fails to update. Although this also happened while trying to update RedNAND earlier today. Perhaps I´ll give it a few more tries.

    Yeah, you flashed. Do what I said earlier.
    L+R+A+Up on the DPad
    You will be given an update option. Do it to save your 3DS, however, you won't be able to downgrade because you will be on 11.0 FW
