    Hi I was doing a downgrade to my beautiful and brand new, New Nintendo 3DS Mario Bundle edition and while downgrading, I plugged in the charger and boom, the console showed up a message saying, AN ERROR HAS OCURRED hold the power button down until it turns off the console... and soo... I did.

    the console boots up, and looks normal and even says 9.2, but my concern is, obviously the downgrade wasn't successful, is there anything I can do to re do the process so it can finish?

    Thank you.

    EDIT: the original firmware was 10.7

    There probably is but I'm not sure how, maybe by updating via cart and trying again or just trying from 9.2. But I do know you can at least check your 9.2 downgrade with this tool in case you want to before trying again: https://github.com/svanheulen/downgrade_check

    This is pretty common, though always frightening. Run the downgrade again from where you are now and it will finish. Then you can safely proceed with the rest of the installation.

    So basically I can run the downgrade from 9.2 again?

    Yes, I had this exact issue before. It will pick up from where it crashed and finish installing the rest of the titles.
