    I had Ironhax installed on my n3ds when it first came out. and once I heard that it might be possible to downgrade it to 9.2 soon. I decided to grab my n3ds again and check if my homebrew was working. I still have ironfall and I never updated to the patched one since i didnt grab my n3ds since the hax came out. Everytime i try to boot the savefile it loads and then says "The homemenu ropbin is ready" and then just crashes into the home menu saying there is an error. I already tried replacing the files with the "starter pack" on smea github page and I tried using browserhax to reinstall ironhax or just install menuhax, but there was no luck since I am on 10.1 and cant use the browser unless I update (I would not like to update since I would want to downgrade eventually) what are my options to stay on 10.1 and be able to use homebrew?

    since you are on a New 3DS, you can get around this. set this as your DNS:

    Primary: 107.211.140.165
    Secondary: 107.211.140.065

    then you can use browserhax and fix ironhax :)

    try adding Google DNS, I think some people seem to say it works. I can't test it though.

    Primary: 8.8.8.8
    Secondary: 8.8.4.4

    hmm, I'm not sure at the moment.

    try going back to the original DNS (107.211.140.165, 107.211.140.065), then do this:

    1. turn off wireless and scan the QR code
    2. once it says wireless communication is disabled, go to the home menu
    3. turn on wireless and open the browser

    it might be fast enough to trigger the haxx.

    This is incorrect, once you have the nag it stays. It might be removable with a reset or other methods but I've not seen any.

    ...but only on Old 3DS does it stay forever.

    I was fairly certain that it stays forever on both, but if I'm wrong I'm wrong. Certainly have not confirmed it myself as I have DNS blocked.
