So all was ok i have successefuly downgrade my n3ds and i can use hbl with theme hax and my gateway card with no problem. After all that i have tried to update my emunand with xenon hack tutorial. I have tried different way with different update pack but nothing to do everytime my emunand brick and i have to reinject my emunand backup. I hope someone will find a solution, maybe when gateway give us support for emunand 9.6+.
You are warned, when you downgrade you can loose the possibility to update your emunand.

non-support for emuNAND 9.6+ on N3DS has NOTHING to do with downgrading...

ALL N3DS, downgraded or not, can't run emuNAND9.6+ because of a new encryption key.

Downgrading hasn't changed in any way from now since the past. If you did do the downgrade, and you didn't brick, this is your problem, not the downgrade. N3DS can't surpass 9.5 EMUNAND support.

How are you updating your emunand? What program are you using to install the cias?

I use this tutorial http://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-update-emunand-on-a-n3ds.393701/

now to fix my black screen i do this and it just worked:

I found the solution for those that downgraded and get the black screen.
Go into your SD-card (on your PC) and rename your emunand folder (Nintendo 3DS/XXXXXXXXXX) to something else.
Now start your 3ds and boot into emunand. It will recreate the folder (but without your installs). This is fine.
Take out your SD-card and go back to your PC. Move all the files from your renamed emunand folder to the one that just got created EXCEPT FOR THOSE THAT CONFLICT. DO NOT MOVE THOSE. IT WILL NOT WORK.

Worked for me ^^

Remove your Nintendo 3DS folder and you should boot into 9.5 emunand no problem

Edit: @Pounou I didnt try that!

I think i have found the problem. If you install theme hax with menu hax installer 2.1 it will make your emunand start with black screen. Delete or rename the big folder on your micro sd Nintendo 3ds folder and install theme hax with menu hax installer 2.0. All is ok now with my new 9.5 emunand

If you are using menuhax, you need to unlink your nands. that is why you are getting problems.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
