    Hi, Recently i have installed Rxtools on my old 3DS but since it's recommended to have 9.2 version of sysnand I decided to update it. I have downloaded all required files and sysupdater, but problem is that I can't access any kind of homebrew launcher on my 4.2 version. I have tried menu hax and browser hax. Is there any kind of way to baypass this? How can I launch sysupdater and update my console? BTW. I have also tried to install sysupdater.cia to sysnand but system didn't allowed it. Any help?

    Updating will lead me to 10.6, which atm isn't downgradable version.

    You don't need HBL. You must have a title manager injected to H&S on your sysNAND, then boot rxTools Pasta Mode and use the title manager to install sysupdater.cia.

    Isn't the only way to inject via an app from the homebrew launcher?

    You'll have to be more specific than that if you want help. It works for everyone else, so you're probably doing something wrong.

    I have sysupdater.cia on my SD card and if I doing it right, I'm trying to install it on my sysnand over FBI injection. Like i'm installing games on emunand, BUT, i can't for some reason install sysupdater on my sysnand, but on emunand I can. I really dont get what's wrong.

    ***edit. I have launched sysnand in RX mode and then tried to install cia.

    You might need to create an empty title.db and import.db inside Nintendo 3DS\<id0>\<id1>\dbs\ and enter Data Management to regenerate the database.

    Ah great... After installing my 9.2 update screen just went black and nothing happened. I have left it like that for some while and nothing, so i turned it off and turned back on. Still nothing. Any help?

    Don't launch sysupdater while you are on rxsysNand or you'll brick 100% your console!
    You have to enter in DEVMODE/PASTAMODE througth the ADVANCED SETTINGS' section of rxTools' main menu and only from there proceed with the update

    If you have a Nand backup you can recover it with an hardmod, if not you have to buy a new one

    Nands backups are unique for every single console. Maybe, but I'm not sure about it and should even not work, you can dump your emuNand with emuNandtool and flash it to your console, always with an hardmod ofc.
