    Hi.
    I downgraded my O3ds from 10.5 to 9.2 yesterday. Everything went as expected and I successed in downgrading. I thought that downgrading to 9.2 would mean that you could install any working cia on the condition that it was from the right region (EUR, since I live in Europe). Was I wrong, or am I missing something? When I tried to install HWL and Kid Icarus through NASA they really didn't install, though it would look like they did.
    I'm quite unsure what I have done wrong. Are the cias at fault or what?

    Help would be much appriciated. Thanks in advance.

    EmuNAND or SysNAND? Far as I know, you can't install CIAs to SysNAND unless they're legit CIAs.

    Great question. Frankly I don't know. Because I don't even know the difference between the two...

    SysNAND then. Follow this guide to part 3 if you want EmuNAND to install CIAs on (slower boot time, around 90% boot rate), or if you want to go the extra mile, follow the guide fully if you want a9lh, giving you a faster boot time and 100% boot rate. A9LH does have a slight chance of bricking, but that's usually if you don't follow the guide to the letter.

    So the only way I'll be able to install any game, except those few legit games - which I already have - is to do what you mentioned with EmuNAND?

    Yes. Actually, no. A9LH lets you do it on updated sysNAND.

    Well I'll try it out. Funny how it was this exact guide that I used for downgrading. Perhaps I should have read through the WHOLE guide...
    Thanks!

    Saw it. :)

    Quick question. In the guide you mentioned, on part 3, EmuNAND isn't really mentioned. So this still does what you mentioned with installing cias from EmuNAND? Sorry for being so questioning.
    EDIT: seems like you were right.

    Once again I'm here to bug you. So after completing step 3 I WILL be able to install any cia through NASA and it will happen through EmuNAND and will actually work?

    This is sort of right and wrong.

    If you want to go for a MenuHax+EmuNAND//RedNAND setup, then don't stop at part 3. Stop on Part 4, Section I, Step 26. This is so you have proper NAND backups of both your EmuNAND and SysNAND, as well as have injected FBI into your EmuNAND.

    Then once that's done, change your menuhax configuration to something that suits you, like type 2 autoboot, or however you want to trigger your menuhax that fits your needs.

    Then look into improving your menuhax bootrate by looking at this link:
    Link: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-how-to-improve-menuhax-boot-rate-to-nearly-100.410764/

    No, do what I told you and stop on Part 4, Section I, Step 26. Forget about NASA, NASA only does legit CIAs. FBI let's you install all those dirty CIAs.

    However, if you want to go the extra mile, like Snowdori said, then finish the whole guide, to have A9LH+CFW+Updated SysNAND, and not have to deal with menuhax or having to use an EmuNAND//RedNAND, unless and only if you choose and decide to have an EmuNAND//RedNAND in your setup with A9LH.

    Jeez, this is getting A LOT more complex than I would have hoped. Anyhow I have mixed feelings about everything atm. I'll have to think about it all. Thanks for all the info you guys have given me. Pehaps I'll be back later today telling you how it went.

    If you are already on 9.2. Then just setting up MenuHax+RedNAND//EmuNAND is the simplest way to go.

    It's also pretty simple to setup A9LH if you just follow the guide as it is written and don't skip anything.

    It is just time consuming, and requires you to read. But anywho, good luck OP, with whatever you decide to do. ^_^

    So I am on the last instruction of part 3 (26). It says that I'm supposed to update RedNAND. Through the system update I assume. Well it fails after attempting to update. It has filled up the bar to a third once.
    Halp meh.
    EDIT: it finally worked

    Have you tried downloading the 11.0 fw with 3dnus and then updating via plaisysupdater?

    I have now entered part 4. My question now is; how do I make RedNAND default?
    EDIT: saw how to.
