    Hi,

    I've been trying to downgrade my N3DS from 9.5 to 9.2. An error occured during the installation, so I'm stuck with a partial downgrade. Problems:

    • I can't seem to launch homebrew launcher when pressing down, while booting.
    • I can launch homebrew launcher from the browser.
    • Plailect guide says to download the ropbin payload of 9.2 and replace browserhax_hblauncher_ropbin_payload.bin. However, that file does not exist.

    My questions:
    • Can I try to upgrade again from the homebrew launcher opened from the browser?
    • If I need to replace a file, which one should I replace?
    Thank you in advance.

    Solution (if you have the same problem):
    • I deleted the files on my SD except Nintendo 3DS and started the guide all over again.
    • Instead of the ropbin for 9.5, I downloaded the one for 9.2.
    • I was able to install menuhax and it worked during boot again.
    • The system downgrade was able to finish.

    I would just grab a fresh starter.zip from smealum's homebrew site.

    Launch homebrew from the browser and complete the downgrade? I'd make sure you actually got a partial downgrade and check system settings.

    If you think that you've partially downgraded run the downgrade again. Run menuhax as that seems to be the best entrypoint and run the the downgrade again

    go to https://smealum.github.io/3ds/#otherapp and get a ropbin file for 9.2.0 in your region, rename the ropbin file to browserhax_hblauncher_ropbin_payload.bin and place that on the root of your sd card.

    It says 9.2.0 after the failed downgrade. So assume it's partial as written in de the guide.

    Menuhax won't run. If I press down during boot, it boots in the normal menu and says "an error has occured. Please save your data in any software currently in use and restart the system."

    I tried this, same problem. It will launch from the browser, but not on boot.

    I tried that, but it didn't work unfortunately. It starts through the browser, but not on startup of the N3DS.

    Change your theme, then use homebrew from the browser to reinstall menuhax.

    Also didn't work.


    I solved it by removing all files my from SD and starting again. I used the ropbin of 9.2.0 to install menuhax. That made it start during boot again. After that I could finish the downgrade.

    Thank you all for trying to help me.
