    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?

    This^
    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 :(

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

    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) :)

    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.

    Not here
    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.

    That's called fraud. Don't do it.

    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.

    You cannot install a9lh on an 11.0.0 n3ds, though...

    Yeah, my bad. Downgrading from 11.0.0 isn't possible without a Hardmod, anyway.

    I have another 2ds with a9lh, can I downgrade the 2ds on 11.0 with it?

    Yes, if you have one of the exploitable games found here
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/DSiWare-Downgrade
    They have to be legitimately bought, no pirated games (includes Freeshop)

    Currently it don't matter. You have to hardmod in order to fix the console.

    He might be able to get into SAFE_FIRM and upgrade the console that way, but we'll see.
