    Hey guys,
    I've been looking around here and on youtube for tutorials how to downgrade my N3DS Hyrule so I can install a CFW. It came with 9.9. From what I understand you can't just go out there and directly downgrade it with SafeSysUpdater.

    So I am wondering what should I do, I just bought the unit brand new and I don't want to softbrick it or anything.

    Thanks for the help !

    Use browserhax to install menuhax and downgrade.

    You actually can just downgrade it out of the box, although you need to put a couple files on the sd card. Il link you to this. Follow it to Part 3 for a simple cfw or Part 5 for the best of the best. https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/OTP-Info

    I read somewhere to never downgrade 9.9 to 9.2 directly or it can softbrick... Unless it was an old tutorials and things changed since.

    EDIT: Nvm... Very good tutorial !! Thanks a lot iAqua ! :)

    Of course there is a chance to softbrick, but it can be easily recovered from. All you need to do is redowngrade if you softbrick. If that doesn't work upgrade with recovery mode and downgrade again. You will need The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of time, and a powersaves to redowngrade if you have to update to the latest. You can also redowngrade with Cubic Ninja/supermysterydungeon.

    Dammit, it crashed during the downgrade... now I got a brick... softbrick probably (black screen) cant return to homebrew.

    EDIT: nvm... seems rmoving my SD card was the way to go

    If you can get a copy of Fire Emblem: Fates, it contains an update to 10.3 firmware, which is a safe level to downgrade to 9.2

    Love my shiny golden Hyrule n3DS! ^_^

    It took me a while to get it working (had to reinstall menuhax) but there was only one file that didnt downgrade, and it downgraded successfully. I'm now dumping my sysNAND. Damn, it's easier to hack this than it was for my o3DS which still uses rxTools because for some reason I cant make anything else work with it. And yes, I bought my Hyrule edition today, there was like 10 at Walmart, costed me a bit, but at least I'll have a N3DS which I see much better the 3D and I'll be able to stream to my computer using NTR ! :D Only thing, I bought a f***ing SD card, I didnt know it was microSD... oh well. 4gb is small but it will do for now...

    Are you gonna do arm9loaderhax? It's slightly risky, but if you brick you can get another one from walmart free through the warranty ;p

    LOL, glad you got it working! Not ONLY is it a microSD, but it's built into the accursed thing. :P Terrible, terrible design choice....

    On the upside, once you get a bigger one put in there, you can use the SDCard manager rather than having to crack the thing open all the time.

    Not risky at all if you follow the guide entirely and don't skip steps

    It's always good to put your typos in bold to help people find them! ^_^ I assume you meant entirely. :P

    Ok stuck again....

    1. Press B on Decrypt9, then go to "EmuNAND Options" and select the "Health & Safety Inject" option
    2. Press down once to select FBI_inject_with_banner.app, then press A to inject
    I tried that, but when I do the inject option it asks me to input a series of inputs and then says EmuNAND not found, but I followed the tutorial ! I got my RedNAND which is not an emunand... but there were no instruction about that.

    EDIT: For some reason it worked now... Go figure...
