    So today I was following Plailect's tutorial, setting up arm9loaderhax on my source 3ds and I am currently at the point where I have a 9.2 (with a NAND backup) and a9lh on it, however I need to download software from the eshop to perform the downgrade. For this I would have to upgrade using the built in system upgrader, as I can't find .cias for 10.6, and then downgrade using my NAND restore, but I don't want to lose my DsiWare to the restore, so I need to know whether it will remain on my 3ds or not.

    If I will lose the DsiWare I have looked into running eshop on 9.2 using 3DNUS, but I still end up crashing so I'm not entirely sure if I will be able to do this.

    MY 3DS INFO
    source: o3dsxl, EUR, 9.2, a9lh installed
    target: o3ds, EUR, 11.2, no homebrew

    Why can you not just upgrade the source console (If your using luma) you can just update fine.

    No. Don't do this. What step specifically are you at? Is the A9LH programs on the SD card or is it running? What firmware are you on? Don't do anything before you get all the information you need please. lol

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    He's A9LH'd on the SOURCE 3DS at 9.2. He needs to update the SOURCE 3DS(A9LH'd) to get the files from the eShop to install hax and system transfer to the TARGET 3DS which is at 11.2.

    OP, system update the SOURCE 3DS to 11.2 and proceed with the guide.

    Why is he asking about 10.6 though? He says he's on 9.2 on the source. If he's on 10.6 on the other 3DS, why does he need to DSIware downgrade? Can't he just CUpdate to 10.7 or use browserhax if it's available on that firmware?

    why sys-transfer when that isn't even needed anymore?

    They're not on 10.6 on the TARGET 3DS, it says 11.2 on the bottom of the OP. I don't know why they're asking about 10.6, that is confusing. But they need to update the SOURCE 3DS to the latest firmware for the system transfer to work.

    At the moment it's either system transfer or hardmod to downgrade 11.2 firmware, unless you have one of the four dsiwarehax games that were pulled from the eShop.

    You must have missed the safehax thing happening right now. Literally will make dsiware obsolete once stable and fasthax releases.

    Nope, I haven't missed anything. Neither of those hax have been released, that's why I said "at the moment".

    Well, that's not...really true. They've been 'released', but they aren't refined.

    Well at the time the OP posted safehax was not yet released. The thread went up literally 7 minutes before I posted.
