    It's probably not since you don't have a backup, but I think it also depends on what errored out when you were downgrading.
    If it is recoverable, you'll need a hardmod.

    Have you tried booting into recovery mode? Have you also tried booting your 3DS without the SD card plugged in?

    I did it with cubic ninja and downgrade with the sysupdater. Now the screen is black

    Turn your 3DS on without an SD card in it.

    It actually takes a few tries to get into recovery. Well, worse case worse, you can either get a hard mod, or buy a new 3DS XL motherboard for around 50 something dollars.
