    Do you have proof other than a vague error?

    Wasn't the guide previously based entirely around CTRTransfer? If this was true, you figure it would have been found out by now...

    No, I'm trying on a 3DS that got downgraded to 9.2 via CTRTransfer, no a9hl.

    Well, I mean, proof as to how you know it's caused by a previous CTRTransfer, and not just some misconfiguration on your end would be nice

    A pretty bold statement to make.. I mean, I get you want to help, but without any proof, this is just speculation.

    Why did you downgrade? What step are you on in the guide?

    Well, it happened on 3 x 3DSes of mine.
    The other 3DS that is downgraded via sysdowngrader instead of CTRTransfer works fine.

    It was downgraded before boot9strap released, few months back.

    Technically should be, there was a page on it in the old guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/b...4da270dcb7/_pages/en_US/9.2.0-ctrtransfer.txt

    The real question then becomes, why would you downgrade to 9.2 and stop, instead of installing a9lh? The guide even stated:
    "the point of the 9.2.0 CTRTransfer is to troubleshoot issues caused by the existing NAND"

    As far as I know, the 9.2 CTRTransfer was never meant to be permanent.

    Don't you get that error if you have 3DSafe or pin set in Luma3DS?

    Then upgrade and use another 3DS to do a DSiwarehax? If you now really believe it's the CTRTransfer that's causing the error. Hell even reinstall 9.2 with Sysdowngrader (even if I don't recommend this at all).
