    Ive been at this for 10 hours so pardon my french. I got the Nintendo ERROR something went wrong message.I went from 9.9 to 9.2 so right now I am on 9.2 frankenstein ware fake 9.2. Ive tried every CFW and currently I can boot homebrew channel on autoboot but I cant run sysupdate to get my console to reinstall the updates.Should I try manually installing with FBI? FBI hasnt been giving me any permissions so I cant even downgrade my browser.

    Some people have reported problems downgrading from lower FWs to 9.2, for some reason.
    Best bet might be to update to 10.3 and downgrade from there.

    I am still in denial lol. I wasted 12 hours doing this and thought I was finally successful. I have a hacked O3DS im thinking bout returning this piece of shit.

    I keep resetting and running sysupdate to downgrade but it never gives me permission.

    Did this need two threads? You wouldn't happen to be using the pre-modified downgrade pack, would you? You should be using the (Full) one for either 9.0 or 9.2 to ensure you get consistent results.

    You have the same issue i did with firmware that wasn't completely installed. Update to 10.3, then sit there until downgrade finally works from there. I had no issues what so ever afterwards.

    It's a funny old story these downgrades I keep reading lately. Sorry I had to:)

    On a serious note, undo the url blocks from the router and update to 10.3. It's not hard at all to DG, if you follow the steps right.

    I can confirm that i had the same problem on new 3DS (EU).
    I got the error message after a few cia install with sysupdate and 9.5 FW.
    I was able to reboot to the frankeisten FW then updated to 10.3 to have a clean system.
    Then i had to try maybe 50x sysupdater before it could start and successfully downgrade.
    Note that it seems to be more stable for me to install menuhax then replace HBL boot.3dsx with sysupdater.3dsx (better boot rate).

    Can the same be said for the New Nintendo 3DS, or will that hardbrick it?

    Just boot recovery and either try again or wait.

    If your read around here, it's a 50/50 chance of a brick no matter how much you follow the guides, even though they are easy to follow.
