    After sys downgrader failing to cooperate with me I figured I should wait until fasthax is in a usable state, but is it possible to update out of 2.1 back to 11.1?
    EDIT: not 2.1 its 2.50-11
    EDIT (again): fixed the problem

    No, doing so will brick. Do a 9.2.0 ctrtransfer to get out of 2.1.0 if you don't have a 9.2.0 NAND backup. Then you can update to 11.2. Just finish installing arm9loaderhax first.

    Actually, i misread and I'm not at 2.1, I'm still on 11.1 with a downgraded nfirm (2.50-11).(And I don't have cfw) When I try to downgrade to 9.2 sys downgrader says main.cpp : 152 result: 0XC8E08001
    failed to get cia file info

    Do you have the updates folder for 9.2.0 of your region in your SD card root?

    Are you following Plailect's guide on 3ds.guide? I don't know how to help with that error.

    Try redownloading the update package, unzip it, and move the package to your SD card root.

    While I'm doing that, there seems to be a problem in which 3dsx files sometimes show up greyed out with an unknown publisher

    That's normal on some applications. The developers sometimes don't provide icons for their Homebrew applications or fill out the publisher info. Unless it wasn't like that before now.

    Yeah, except sometimes when i replace them for updates or something, they show up like that and when i launch them they only give a red screen (example: retroarch)

    Have you tried replacing the applications? I'm not sure what else to do at this point.

    yeah, it eventually works when i replace them, but it's just weird why it happens at all

    Coming back to my original problem, i think when i was on 9.2 i made a nand backup right before attempting to go to 2.1 except i decided to go back to 11.1. If i still have that file, would there be a way to restore it?

    If you're on 11.1 now, then no.

    If you're on 11.1 and you still have access to dsiwarehax, you can use dsiwarehax to flash the NAND backup.
