    I just want know if there is a way to downgrade 3ds firmware 10.5 to 9.2. I tried using sysUpdater and it keeps saying "failed to get CIA file info. I just want to restore my NAND from gateway (only works on 9.2) because my nnid doesn't want to work (error 022-2634)...as of this time i dont have either sysnand or emunand, my sd got corrupted, got a new one and im left with 3ds 10.5 (my games and save files are sill here) :/

    No way to downgrade as the method was patched with 10.4.

    Should probably change the info in the forum header to include

    Downgrade: <= System Menu 10.3.0
    CFW: <= System Menu 9.2.0
    HomeBrew: <= System Menu 10.5.0

    Obviously would change as time went on, but maybe would make it obvious. That way we don't end up with many threads on "Can I downgrade X"

    I wouldn't put it past them... Maybe an Exploit that when Exploited Notifies Nintendo that you are haxing your console?

    At the moment, downgrading only works on firmwares at 10.3 or below, and you probably won't see another exploit for a long time. Sorry OP, you're out of luck.

    You can downgrade but you need a hardmod to dump the nand, change the native firm and flash it

    The only way to downgrade a 10.5 console is with a hardmod
