    [Resolved]

    This is the guide I was following https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-2-(Downgrading)
    My n3DS system version: 10.7.0-32E

    I've been trying multiple versions of SysUpdater. But PlaiSysUpdater [@Plailect, Forked (SafeSysUpdater) @cpasjuste) is the only one that even appears in my homebrew launcher. (Using OOTHAX as entry point)
    I've downgraded this three times, every time is says that it's been downgraded. Every line during the downgrade was successful.

    However, as soon as it reboots, I get an error message signed by Nintendo. Removing the SD card won't work, Turning the system off and back on won't work, I even tried to remove the battery just in case. Nothing like that will let me into the new 9.2 home meny. Thankfully I'm able to Hold L+R+A+Up to start it up in safe mode. And from there I can update it to 10.7.0-32E (Which is the latest version as of 5th of April 2016)

    Any solutions? I'm gonna try a few more times because It seems it's not getting bricked anyways.

    Update: I was told to Format my system. I backed up all the saves that supported the backup feature and format my system (without the SD card being in)
    ANYWAYS!! IT WORKED!! After a Format, it worked without issues!!! Thanks for the help! GBATEMP is awesome! Been using it for years, but this is my first post! Success! I'm now on 9.2.0-20E :)

    Usually in that scenario, you're best best is to do a system format first, then downgrade.

    You can re-download them, but your saves will be gone.

    With a format, it will wipe everything so you'd have to download it again. Depending on your end-goal, you may have to unlink your NNID if you plan on using it on emuNAND.

    Your saves though would be gone as I'm not sure SVDT can pull e-shop saves.

    Will Nintendo's own save backup work after a format? I can backup my VC saves, as for Animal crossing new leaf, the save got deleted because I imported an old copy of the save and it said it's not the newest save so lol too bad your 300 hours are all gone. I do have that save stored on my PC tho, but importing it again won't work :/

    I think not, you should use a homebrew such as svdt.
    You just need to fix the secure value, then you can import it fine.

    I have the same issue, but I will try to transfer my data to another n3ds via system transfer. I hope this will work...

    That deletes saves! Did you backup them?

    Great! (Just wanted to make sure. A format deletes backups made with the official method.)

    I didn't even have my SD card in during the format, just in case.

    Not because of that. (Though it's a very good idea to take the SD out before formatting.) It generates new encryption keys, so everything 3DS-related on the SD becomes unreadable by the console itself. (saves, software etc.)

    It seems to work. It took a few days to get another n3ds... On the weekend I downgraded the new one and installed a9lh. After that, I used system tranfer to move my data over to this device. No data lost and it's running fine on the a9lh device. Now I have to downgrade etc. my first n3ds and wait 7 days to use system transfer again.

    So you were able to transfer to a A9LH device and then transfer back? I just made my secondary machine for this and I want to make sure it worked before I attempt? Any tips?
