    I've attempted to downgrade two N3dsXL's and both gave me the Nintendo error screen to power off, which ruins the homebrew. One was on 9.9 and 9.6. I followed Plailect guide to the T and used the links to download the exact programs. I've successfully upgraded other O3dsxl's and installed arm9loader, so I'm not exactly clueless but this is the first time to downgrade. Is there something wrong with sysdowngrader?

    Did you format the systems before downgrading?

    Plailect talks about this error at the very beginning of the downgrade guide. So I took extra care and it still happened. Should i use just sysupdater. There are several programs for downgrading. Just need to know which one is the best.
