Hi All, I've been all through the forums, and the short of it is, i have a New 3ds xl that was on ver 18.104.22.168-u. I got the 22.214.171.124-u NDS cia pack, used this url for the process: http://wololo.net/2016/01/04/3ds-system-software-downgrade-tutorial/ and successfully downgraded. SafeSysUpdater confirmed the files, and flashed them. After about 2 hours solid of trying to figure out why go.gateway-3ds.com would not bring me in to gateway mode on my 3ds (yes i reset cache, reset my browser like 40 times, i have the latest Launcher.dat on the root of my sd card, i even tried re-formatting my sd card and ONLY placing launcher.dat on the card), all i get when i hit the URL is the black screen. It goes no farther. I spent another hour researching why, found that SafeSysUpdater is guilty of partial downgrades, so i got the downgrade check tool (latest one committed 6th of jan). When i ran it i got the results if 1 extra file found, and 4 other files with expected and actual hashes varying. I did further research and found that people seem to think that safesysupdater is guilty of saying it fully downgraded, but leaving remnants, resulting in a frankenversion at the end. I did as suggested, grabbed a good copy of SysUpdater and ran it... it hit 2 of those files and updated. Now when i run the downgrade check tool i get: Checking installed titles... title id 0x0004003000009e02 extra title title id 0x0004013000001b02 expected version 0x0800 installed version 0x0c01 that's it. According to this page: http://www.derrit.de/r/3dshacks/comments/43xo0c/attempt_downgrade_on_98_n3ds_soft_brick_it.html a poster indicated that these should not make a difference from another poster's question, as: 0x0004003000009e02 Amiibo settings 0x0004013000001b02 GPIO Module and stated: Dont do anything, your cfw will work fine So my question is, are the 2 items above reason to block the gateway url? Why is this not working? Any help would be apprecaited... i believe i fully exhausted my searching, and i'm getting sick of reading 10's of 100's of posts saying "clear browser history, reset browser, try again, it WORKED!" as the only solutions i'm finding. Additionally, i have homebrew launcher installed... is there a way to get gateway installed via a 3dsx file instead? Or is there a way i can get this browser addy to hit? Thanks in advance.
