    did you install homemeu hax ?
    well everybody will tell you to enter recovery mod and update , but you will be updating to 10.4 and right now no way to downgrade it
    you can always try to run sysupdater again , it will downgrade the files that didn't downgrade before the error , or use downgrade check to see what titles aren't ok(did you check that the update files are same region as your 3ds?)

    So what I'm gathering here is, your 3ds errored during the update and, with the SD card out, will boot but won't launch certain apps? First things first, you have menuhax installed for 9.9 and the home menu seems to have been downgraded, so the payload probably needs to be changed to work on 9.2.

    If all of that goes well then retry the downgrade to completely get your system working again :) good luck

    Sounds like an incomplete downgrade. Try downgrading again if you can access the homebrew launcher. Don't update until you run out of options or you'll end up on 10.4

    ok thank you, i did every step from this guide https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-easy-complete-comprehensive-cfw-guide-for-everyone.408685/ from 0.2b.0 onwards the only thing that i changed is that instead of using browserhax, i used ninjhax because browserhax doesnt work on 9.9.0.26U so i did every step.

    till the step 0.2b17 because i turned my n3ds again and pressed L (menuhax) but it didnt open the HBL (but i had a pink dot on the theme options), so i tried to run HBL again with Ninjhax (but the save data exploit didnt work, so i reset cubic ninja data and tried to open hbl scanning the qr code again, so i turned on the internet for it to work again) then when i was on HBL again the icon of safesys didnt have the question mark "?" so i proceed to open the ftbrony and then i press b and it returned me to the HBL menu, and then i open the safesys and everything was fine until i got an error that said that i need to turn off the n3ds. but when i tried to turned it on again both screens were black so i turned it off again and i removed the sd card, and when i turned it on again it bring me to the home menu, but when i tried to open settings to check if i was on 9.2 it got stuck on nintendo 3ds logo :c

    Really looks like an incomplete downgrade...
    You should try starting everything from scratch. Is it possible or are you unable access HBL anymore?

    Home menu is really all that matters and based on the menuhax not working it looks like he has the 9.2 home menu meaning all he needs to do is install the 9.2 payload and start the downgrade again :)

    You may need to re install it this time selecting 9.2 since some parts of your 3ds were downgraded.

    try to run an application called "downgrade check" to check that everything is ok
    if you get any errors you can then stat hbl and run minipasta and install the missing system cia for your n3ds

    then you still aren't finished yet... try clearing the update nag (just try it even if you don't have it) then try the downgrade again

    yeah, there's a thread about it somewhere, just boot into recovery and hit the "cancel" button once the screen pops up to update
