Hi guys, I made a huge mistake and I don't know how to fix it.
In short, my 2ds is on fw 2.1.0 and, before to downgrade, I forget to turn on internet connection. Then I thought that, may be, doing a reset would have let me set up a new internet connection, but instead, I'm stuck at the first configuration, because the system asks to put 3d mode at max. What should I do?

You are basically screwed and will need a hard mod/nand backup restore if you have one. Could possibly enter recovery mode and update but it will be on 11.0 ofw.

Here is a thread about someone else being stuck on that config screen. https://gbatemp.net/threads/stuck-at-3d-screen-check-on-2ds-after-sysnand-format.410208/

I hope you have a backup, or else your only option is buying a new 2DS, or a secondhand motherboard. Either way, you will lose everything without a backup. Sorry :(

Yeah, just do the old trick of the trade. Buy new console, swap the guts and take it back for a refund (keeping the new one) :)

Yes, I did sysNand and EmuNand backups before downgrading, are they ok?

You need to hard mod it or buy a new console.

There is any detailed thread on how to do so? I mean about hard modding.

You can reset the Wi-fi to On only geetting off the battery from the console some seconds.
But you say you System Format, for bad you can do anything more than Hardmod if you have a Nand Backup, change the Mother Board (you will lose your bought content in the eShop) or get other console.

Wait no

Remove the battery

If you downgraded to 2.1.0 on New 3DS or 2DS and left Wireless Communication off (with or without a functional browser), you can reset the wireless to be on by removing the battery for several seconds then booting back up.

Tomorrow I will try Tenshi_Okami advice, probably removing the battery will turn on internet mode, and then from recovery mode I can update to 11.0, that should do the trick.
