I've been reading over the threads on here and various other sites to make sure I do everything correct. I have a new N3DS XL with firmware 9.9.0-26u on it. I know from reading I should be able to install the browserhax and downgrade. I tried that yesterday, managed to get the browserhax working and ran SafesysUpdater. It failed partway through the downgrade. When I powered it back on, I just had black screens. Swapped out SD cards and the system came up fine, but no matter what I did, I could no longer get the homebrew menu to come back up. Then, I was not paying attention and accidentally updated to 10.6 which I know I cannot downgrade. So, I exchanged the N3DS XL this morning for another one, which is also on 9.9.0-26u so I'm back to square 1. What I really want to do is use homebrew, install CFW and play 3DS roms, etc. What are the best procedures to follow to do this? Some procedures I read say upgrade to 10.3 before downgrading to 9.2. Others say I should be fine downgrading directly from 9.9.0-26u. There seems to be many different ways to go about this and I just want to make sure I dont have the same issues I had last time. Thanks in advance for the help.
