    Memchunkhax2 is now confirmed to be blocked! DO NOT UPDATE. I repeat, DO NOT UPDATE. The new update also prevents ironfall from running AT ALL without updating it.

    How about manually upgrading to 10.3 using sysupdater/safesysupdater then downgrading to 9.2 using sysupdater/safesysupdater?

    Read that people might have issues downgrading if they are on a firmware higher then 9.2 but less then 10.3 so i wanted to make sure now that 10.4 is out.

    Does anyone have an explanation for this? As in, what's with people having downgrading issues if they aren't on 10.3?

    They get like a partial downgrade their system says it's on 9.2 but some hacks will not work correctly.

    I'm upgrading my sysnand to 10.4 right now to test if downgrading still works. I'll report when I'm done.

    I have a hard mod so I have no risk with this test.

    Edit I just realized that I may have to wait for a updated Cubic Ninja payload before I can test.

    Same here, I'd update and test, but payloads need to be updated first.

    The ninjhax site has been updated to give a 10.4 qr code (didn't on my first try) but when I scan it my system just freezes.

    Third try worked installing payload now

    I have to go to bed, work tomorrow, I'll check back tomorrow to see how it went. Test myself, etc.

    Thanks for the payload update though.

    So far I haven't had any luck. All I get is "Failed to get CIA file info!" which in 6 previous downgrades I never had that problem and they all worked.

    Keep trying, I know I had to run it about 100 times before it ever took.

    If you can boot Sysupdater, then memchunkhax2 works at all, right?

    Sysupdater existed long before Memchunkhax2 and doesn't really need it to operarate.

    That doesn't mean if it boots on 10.4 it can still downgrade, of course.

    Up to 9.3 needs memchunkhax2 to boot.
