    Hi guys,

    Recently I downgraded my 3DS XL to 4.5 and now I want to upgrade it back to 9.x.
    Ofcource, before downgrading I made a backup of my nand. Can I just restore that? Or do I need to update using other methods?


    Thank you all in advance

    Currently there is no safe to way to update to 9.2 unless you own the ultra rare revised copy of Super Smash Bros. that has the 9.2 update. Updating to 9.2 via CIAs or from game roms will result in bricks. Hopefully a way of doing this for systems that never been on 9.x will be made possible in Karl3DS as I have a XL that was never on 9.x and I want to update it to 9.2. But currently all my attempts resulted in a brick. (I have a NAND mod so I can undo bricks. ;) )
