    FIXED


    On a n3dsxl, originally 10.3 firm.

    Am using plailect's guide and worked fine till the downgrade section.

    While downgrading, many files were install completed and after a while I got the error screen asking me to power off. I powered off and then managed to boot. When I checked the system version, it shows as 9.2.

    However, I downloaded the homebrew downgrade checker and it found some mismatch. This means I have a partial downgrade right?

    So I reinstalled menuhax and have been trying to re-run the downgrade but I've been stuck at "hax init"

    Any ideas?

    Between here and there
    just keep trying to re-run the downgrade, if it keeps doing that for 20 times, try to update with a game cart and redo the downgrade then.

    Crap. I don't have any game carts.

    Will it be any different if I were to launch from OOThax?

    Trying it now but it seems like it freezes on "init ->" Plailect's guide says if it freezes, wait 30 seconds. I'm going to be extra safe and wait for 2 minutes

    EDIT: Check files work but seems like it freezes on "init ->"

    Doubtful. I know that SafeSys was not much more successful for me. Somebody recommended PlaiSysUpdater which I got to go on first try. Give that a go?

    Well if he followed the guide he already used PlaiSysUpdater, if this doesnt work maybe you should try wiping our SD card. Maybe theres some bad data from 10.3 there, who knows? Ive downgraded multiple 3DSs and 90% of them gave me a partial downgrade error and every single time i had to downgrade again with the Native firm being left out.

    Why are you recommending that? That is pretty much broken, potentially dangerous, and incomplete. Also, it doesn't help with this case afaik.

    It might not be needed. Some titles will be left and don't really matter. If you can boot 9.2 exploits, the system should work properly. Continue as if it were 9.2.

    FrankenUpdater was supposed to be used to update friends module, NVer, eShop and Mint, while checking if the title corresponds to the correct region/model. Not for something like this.

    Is there a way I can test for 9.2 exploits?

    EDIT : well it looks like I can't launch emunand9 so this probably means it doesn't work.

    FIRM is the last title downgraded in PlaiSysUpdater and SafeSysUpdater, so 9.2 exploits won't work until the downgrade completes.
    Best is to get a 10.3-10.5 game cart and use it to update, then downgrade again.
    Assuming your console is EUR, the EUR games containing those updates according to 3dsdb.com are:
    Yo-Kai Watch, Mario and Sonic At The 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Hyrule Warriors Legends, Bravely Second End Layer and lastly Fire Emblem Fates (all versions)
    Your only other option unless you can get PlaiSysUpdater or SafeSysUpdater to work is to update to 11.0, and from there your only option for CFW is to get a hardmod installed and use the hardmod downgrade method described here: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Hardmod-Downgrade

    I suppose you still have the other NATIVE_FIRM installed.

    Pretty sure PlaiSys puts it in the middle? Am I wrong?

    Damn, that sucks. So the only option is to update and reattempt the downgrade? I can't just downgrade without updating first?

    Might be, I'm not 100% sure about it, but either way it seems like FIRM is not downgraded yet in OP's case.
