    Hello all,

    Most of you know me and know I'm a long time user around here.
    I'm used to hardmod, downgrades and the works...
    I've been using @Plailect downgrade since it was first available in 10.4/10.5 and now I have a veeeery weird scenario.

    I have a 11.0 N3DS XL that I downgraded FIRM to 10.4 using the latest available hardmod FIRM downgrade but no matter how many times I try to downgrade using **ANY** homebrew I ALWAYS get stuck in the "HAX INIT".

    I've tried sysUpdater (0.41 and 0.42) SafeSysUpdater (0.9 and 1.0) and PlaiSysUpdater (0.4 only).

    What I've tried so far:
    1) recreating and reflashing the FIRM downgraded NAND.BIN 3 times
    2) changing the micro SD (including to a brand new Sandisk 32Gb class 10 ultra 48mb/s I had sealed lying around)
    3) formatting the console after reflashing the FIRM downgraded NAND.BIN (I know, it doesn't make much sense doing it, but hey, I'm desperate)

    Did any of you ever see that?

    Have you tried another entrypoint? I used OOT3DHAX on my 11.0J N3DS and was able to downgrade on the first try. If you can try another entrypoint if possible it might help.

    I just made one today, worked flawlessly using Cubic Ninja after the 11.0 -> 10.4 firm downgrade.

    What entrypoint are you using?

    Can you try to run the OOT3DHAX installer from the HBL? I believe it is included in the starter kit.

    Edit: Olmectron has a good suggestion as well. NinjaHAX works well too!

    Try 11.0 see if it works, but I think the QR code output is the same as 10.7 tbh,

    Also try OOT3DHAX installer if you can.

    Try 11.0 first, if that doesn't work try 10.7 or 10.4.

    I used the 11.0 QR code. Having downgraded the firm already to 10.4, of course.

    seems like thread got hijacked but
    regards to ninja cubic method.. you need to delete save file on the cartridge
    in GAME MAIN MENU(not system main menu)
    delete it by holding L+R+X+Y.
    once its deleted, scan code

    ive had exact same issue.. you either purchased used 1 or you've been playing it on ninja cubic. saved data on cartridge must be deleted.

    must be on below v11 nand.
