    Okay so... i proceeded to follow this guide: "https://3ds.guide/get-started-(old-3ds)" and everything went fine, completely fine, but it wouldn't run a game i installed through FBI so i surfed the web for answers and decided to format the system... yeah... since i screwed up i had to now do it all over again right? Well i did! but unfortunately, even with the formatting of the SD Card and the system, the CFW was still there, which when downgrading to 2.1.0 again bricked it... i can't turn my 2ds on anymore... Can someone help me?

    I think the problem is that your CFW doesn't support firmware 2.1. Start the console without the sd card and see if it works.

    You downgraded to 2.1 again? A format doesn't remove the CFW -_- Just try without an SD card.

    You're screwed, I think.

    Could you try to set up your sd card again with CFW? Once that's done, see if you can use payloads for hourglass9 and restore a backup you created in the guide.

    Does the Luma menu appear when you boot holding select?

    No, since i was following the guide, it looks like what it's supposed to look like during the downgrading phase

    Maybe try recovery mode (A+R+L+Up(DPad)) and redo the whole process?

    Put a arm9loaderhax.bin as a test on the root of your sd card. A9LH never gets uninstalled when formatting the 3DS.
