    Where does the problem happen? Does it happen at NFIRM? If so, I was able to solve it by putting the firmware.bin in the luma folder IIRC.

    Edit. You have to put the Luma3DS NTR firmware.bin in the luma folder

    I had the same issue while attempting to downgrade a 03ds yesterday. I couldnt get past that point even when i reinstalled emunand backup. Make sure your emunand is updated to latest firmware, format twice then reattempt to downgrade. that worked for me

    Have you formatted your redNAND twice?

    Also, I would go ahead and place the Luma3DS NTR firmware.bin (Found in part 5 of A9LH) in the luma folder and see if that works

    I agree. That most likely is the problem. Just out out of curiosity though? When you downgraded, did it stop at the NFIRM file? If so, did you ever place the firmware.bin in the luma folder? The only reason why I'm asking because I have had to do it 2/3 times (on 3 diffrent 3ds's) and I don't see it in the guide.

    Well the only other thing I can think of is to get the latest version on plaisysupdater, latest version of luma, and place the firmware.bin in the luma folder. Outside of that, I'm stumped. I would ask Plailect directly. He would definite be able to help you out

    Be sure you don't have any modification on your sysnand, backup your emunand and SD contents, format a new one using EmuNAND9 and start the process from scratch.
    You can also wait a few days when the CTRNAND injection method becomes a thing, a9lh will be more easy to install.
