    Hey guys, I borrowed a o3ds from my friend which was on 9.9. I accidentally updated my own 3ds to 11.0 so I was going to use this to install SMDhax on my cartridge. I was able to install it just fine on the borrowed DS, but when I put it in my own and hold select to update the payload, it doesn't work. If I try to install for the newer firmware on the o3ds I get an error. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    So you're currently on 11x?

    SMDHax works on all FWs 9.9 (10.2 for EUR) and up

    Its unstable for downgrading, but nothing more. and the Hax (itself being very stable) launches when the game boots, making it arguably the most convenient hax

    Use an already hacked system to install the payload to the game

    EDIT; 10.7 payload should work

    Did it give the error on your New3DS?

    b/c ofc it would give an error w/ a N3DS payload on an O3DS

    On my n3ds it just bumps me back to home menu. Could I use powersvaes to fix this?

    I see no way Powersaves could fix it :P

    What Payload is installed on your Cart?

    I'm not one hundred percent sure. I use seperate SD cards for the 3dses, but I have homebrew installed on both sd cards. Any way this could be causing the problem?

    Far from it
    ALL homebrew payloads, unless modified, read from boot.3dsx on the root

    And if you aren't 100% sure, use the already hacked system to access homebrew, open the supermysterychunkhax installer, and install to the cart the NEW 11.0.0-33R Payload (R=Region)

    Every time I try to do that, I get an error. It totally refuses to install.
