    So I got everything going up until downgrading and it ended up crashing half way through and leaving me on a partial downgrade. I can't seem to boot into HBL or even get browserhax to work anymore on this partially downgraded 9.2.0-32U so I wanna know if it's safe to format my SD card and System Reformat the 3ds on the partially downgraded firmware and if so, will it put me back on 10.7.0-32U so I can easily start over?

    If I'm remember correctly, lastest version of sysdowngrade should downgrade something related to exploit first.
    May be you need to change how to run exploit to the same as 9.2. I once have this problem, intall OOT3Dhax for 9.2 and I can do downgrade again.

    So technically just change the payload files to 9.2.0-20U ones now since I'm partially downgraded on that and run sysdowngrader again?
    I'm technically just downgrading to the version I'm already on right?

    Yep, that's what happend to me when I downgrade my 10.7 N3DS mario 3D land.
    Although at that time, browserhax is bit broken so I need to use OOT3Dhax.

    Yeah change the payload files to 9.2 after a partial downgrade, and rerun sysdowngrader

    I formatted my SD card completely and just started over but w/ 9.2 files. Does that make a difference?

    uh, I guess no but just replacing the 10.7 payload with a 9.2 one would've had the same effect, rerunning sysdowngrader will finish the unfinished downgrade

    Yep, since each FW has each version of its payload.

    But yeah if you ever get the crash during the middle of downgrade (I did both times I've downgraded systems) just change the payload to a 9.2 one and rerun sys downgrader, dont need to format anything, I'm sure doing so will hurt more than help, after a rerun the downgrade will complete
