    You need to atleast give out info of your predicament before anyone can help you. No one is going to sit here and guess your problems away :/

    My bad, I accidentally deleted my content within the post. To any would-be helpers, thanks, but please disregard this thread.

    Here's my predicament so far:

    1) I tried to downgrade my N3ds from 10.2 to 9.2

    2) Nintendo Error showed up mid-way, causing franken-firmware

    3) Unsuccessfully tried to open EmuNand9, FBI, PastaCFW/minipasta

    4) sysUpdater won't open (black screen).

    What I'm trying right now: Downloading sysUpdater (4.1, with memchunkhax) from gitHub and trying to upgrade back to 10.3 and then downgrading again.

    Edit: 4.1 sysUpdater doesn't work, trying 4.2 again.

    Have to use the one with memchunkhax2

    And I would suggest trying to complete the downgrade instead of upgrading then downgrading again.

    I recommend that you just buy a game like Fire Emblem: Fates and update that way. It's much more simple, you don't have to worry about the updater crashing and you don't have to worry about your cias being corrupted.

    I don't think that will work, considering that neither downgrading nor upgrading will work properly. On 4.1, the latest with memchunkhax, it crashes IMMEDIATELY into a red bottom screen and back to the HB menu.

    Hmm. In that case the game cart idea is probably the best way to get into a workable state again.

    You will need to buy a game that has 10.3 on it to update to 10.3 again and then do the downgrade again.

    What are some decently-priced games that has 10.3?

    Fire Emblem: Fates is the best because you get a 10.3 game plus a game worth buying.

    Wait, do you mean the new one, or the older one?

    Augh, I might was well just buy the game I want for now for the same price rather then fiddle with my n3ds.
