    I've noticed that a fix has been recently been discovered over the last 48 hours. I have no idea how the OOTHax exactly works but it seems like my only hope beside $80 Cubic Ninja? Anyone tried running OOThax?

    Gambia, The
    Yes, but you have to get Powersaves if you are not able to use Homebrew right now.

    You have to write the OoTHax Savegame to your cartridge, either by using Powersaves/another Save Dongle or homebrew.

    Then you have to get SysUpdaters newest version(I don't have a link right now, and I'm online with my tablet)
    and 9.2 Formware files (from that ISO site).

    Extract everything to your SD (fw files go to sd:/updates/ and sysupdater to sd:/3ds, just like any other homebrew)

    Start OoT -> Press anything(like the ocarina icon) to trigger the exploit -> start SysUpdater -> Press Y -> wait

    Greetings!

    Followed that guide, downgraded, and now I cant laucnh into homebrew via OOT. It just says ropbin ready, flashes a blue light and then takes me to normal home screen and says a error occured, to save my data and restart the system

    You needed to replace the payload, as the payload currently saved on OoT is meant for the later version.
    Since you've downgraded, you should be able to get browserhax working and you can reinstall oot3dhax.

    Kozy im not sure if youve done it or not yet, but yes its possible. I just did it on my N3DS XL with 10.6. Once you follow that guide through the downgrade steps, you will have to install browserhax and then reinstall oothax, or edit the payload before you downgrade.

    Aaaaaand here they come!

    Back to topic: yeah, It's possible, but you need OoT/Cubic Ninja if you're on 10.6

    Otherwise use Browserhax > Install Menuhax

    A little late to the party, but I just did this last night and then installed arm9loaderhax using OoT3dhax w/ Powersaves. So if you have access to Powersaves and want some help getting started, let me know!

    If you have Oothax, then the downgrade will work. I'm on 9.2 already, and that's what I used.
