    So, I have a n3ds that I want to downgrade and a o3ds with luma CFW (No Al9h)
    Can I do it with this?
    Also when I transfer the gane from the emunand to my n3ds is the emunand going to be wiped? As well as my n3ds?

    yeah you can it says

    What you need
    • Two 3DS systems
      • 3DS #1: the 3DS running some kind of custom firmware (arm9loaderhax or some form of EmuNAND/RedNAND)
      • 3DS #2: the 3DS on stock firmware

    or some form of emunand or rednand
    (i think that mean you don't need a9lh)

    Oh okay thanks. Do you know something about my other question? I never did a system transfer before. I only bought a new one

    i have basically ignored half the guide because you apparently you need sysNAND-A9LHAX.bin
    If you do not have sysNAND-A9LHAX.bin on your computer from Part 5 already, do the following:

    Well, looks like its going to be wiped. Is there a way how I can save my VC games as well as my games I bought?

    Well, I never did anything with al9h so I don't have it

    I don't have a9lh so i don't have a lot of experience with it but i have a vague idea that you might need a9lh

    Are your games on the o3DS or the n3DS? The stuff on the o3DS isn't lost, only moved to the n3DS, you can't transfer it back though since n3DS can't transfer to o3DS. If you want to keep what you have on the o3DS then backup your emuNAND, make a new one and do the whole dsiwarehax thing and transfer it to the n3DS. You shouldn't lose any purchased content but might lose the saves and downloads you have on the n3DS. It's a lot easier if you don't have a NNID set up on the target system, then it should be able to merge the contents of the two consoles minus certain things.

    Well my n3ds (The system I want to downgrade) has a nnid. But the o3ds doesn't. So i'll lose everything on the o3ds emunand? How do make another one?

    The NNID on the target system along with everything linked to it will probably be temporarily lost, you should be able to log back into that NNID later on to retrieve the purchased content on it however save data will most likely be lost so back it up with svdt first.
    You make another one the same way you made the first one...
    Back it up first with emuNAND9 then format emunand again.

    So I'll back it up, then make a new one do the whole thing, delete it, and then load the old one?

    Yes. After you make a new emuNAND, format it with TinyFormat before you install dsiwarehax/do the transfer so your NANDs are unlinked: https://github.com/javimadgit/TinyFormat/releases

    Because if your NANDs were linked before you formatted emuNAND then the transfer will still delete everything off your emuNAND, and even if they aren't it'll still delete everything off your sysNAND unless you unlink.

    I thought you said you didn't have A9LH? AFAIK Luma's payload chainloading only works with A9LH.

    Why do you need it?
    There's a .3dsx version of Decrypt9 at least, which should do the same job.

    @The Real Jdbye it doesn't work. It just boots me back into the homebrew launcher

    Sorry, which question?
    Do you mean why I need that 3dsx/cia version? The guide says I need houglass9. Sorry that I ask about everything, I don't want to fail again
