Hi guys, i upgraded my NS to 11.0.1 by mistake and too dumb to upgrade the cfw to 11.0.1 also by the ChoiDuJourNX. Recently I just downgraded my ofw back to 11.0.0 through the
atmosphere +daybreak but I think the sxos cfw is still at 11.0.1 which causes it still only shows a black screen after I injected the payload.

So is there any solution to this situation? Thanks in advance

You need to learn a bit, some basic concepts...

But yes, you can.

First, I assume:

what you call ofw is your sysnand
what you call cfw is your emunand
your sysnand is in fw 11.0.0
your emunand is in fw 11.0.1
you use sx os and your emunand is an sxos style emunand

Your options are:

a) configure atmosphere to use your sxos emunand and boot atmosphere using emunand and use daybreak to downgrade emunand to 11.0.0. After the downgrade you remove atmosphere files and use sxos again, now with the emunand in the downgraded fw 11.0.0 state.

b) boot sxos boot menu and create emunand, this will copy your sysnand to the emunand again, the problem is you will lose the save games and also anything on the sdcard. If you use xci games and have savegames exported via checkpoint or sx save manager or so, this is not that much of a problem but otherwise...

c) you can hybridize your emunand which is in fw 11.0.1 to a frankenfirmware 11.0.0+11.0.1. The thing is it seems you are not very knowledgeable in this area ( don't take me wrong, I am not trying to insult you or anything ) so I don't know if this is the best path...

maybe path a) is the best for you.

You can add this config so that atmosphere uses the sxos style emunand you have, so you can then use daybreak to downgrade it:

Create > emummc folder on the root of the SD

Create > emummc.ini file inside of emummc folder

Copy and paste this to emummc.ini

EDIT: I have been warned about these field names being obsolete, so I removed the emummc_ beginnings, these are now correct.

[emummc]
enabled = 1
sector = 0x2
nintendo_path = Emutendo

of course I assume you know how to put atmosphere package in the microsd card, you did that to downgrade your sysnand already, so you should be able to.

Thanks a lot. I finally could get into SXOS (option A was taken) but after that I realized there're clould symbols on some of my games. Then I found all the NSPs on the Mini SD card were disappeared but the spaces were still taken. Forturnately the checkpoint is still working and I've backup all the saves and decided to format the Mini SD card and run the whole thing from the very begining again,

Uhmmm, that's not strange and it has happened to me, but you shouldn't have lost the installed stuff... were the directories in the correct place ? in emutendo for sxos... ?

emummc_sector = 0x2
emummc_nintendo_path = Emutendo

Thank you @Inaki for presenting the options so clearly.

I am in the same situation as OP and have followed your suggested Option A - but I can't get Atmosphere to use the EmuNAND (11.0.1). My SD card has a hidden partition for the EmuNAND - will your settings and emummc.ini file work for this hidden partition?

Thanks
--------------------------
EDIT: It's all now okay - I found out that the format of the emumcc.ini posted above is now outdated and should contain the following wording instead:

[emummc]
enabled = 1
sector = 0x2
nintendo_path = Emutendo

Thank you for the warning. Yes, it seems they changed the format a bit. I edited the field names.

It sounds like the tickets for them were missing.
