    Hey i just bought a n3ds and it came with 9.9.026u fw, i have been reading around and it seems like my only options are to find a outrageously priced cubic ninja game, buy sky3ds for 87+ dollars or risk bricking the console with sysupdater and some kind of other entrypoint like browserhax or menuhax. I've tried loading the files onto the microsd card and trying the browserhax exploit but it seems the 9.9 fw is locking the browser out from working. Any step by step tutorial or video tutorial would be greatly appreciated.

    Restart n3ds and launch the browser asap to bypass the block for just enough time to launch browserhax. Then install themehax.

    You probably won't brick your 3ds from using sysupdater unless you're careless.

    You need to go to to your home menu themes and let it create extdata on your sd card before you can install menuhax, as menuhax needs this to function. Make sure wifi is off before you do this as you will get blocked out of the browser if you don't.

    I'll pm you the files I used to get to 10.3 and then 9.2 also got to setup dns which I'll also provide. When I get home I'll send them to you.

    Ok goodluck and let us know how it went for you. The more 9.9 users here with success rates the better!

    I'd recommend against using safesysupdater. It apparently causes more bricks over just using sysupdater.

    Yeah I read into that as well and just went with the sys updater on the tutorial, both upgrading and downgrading went smoothly for me just make sure your using the correct n3ds full update cia's.

    Are all of the cias in a directory named "updates" on the root of your SD card?

    dude thanks a lot i almost shat bricks i tried using the sysupdater at first it says cia file cant verify or something and i did the ftbrony spam B to ext and then gone to sysupdater and the screen just blacked out i thought it is bricked, did you experience any trouble? and can you also pm me the sysupdater you've used? just to calm my mind since you've done this succesfully
