I have a sysnand backup from 9.2 and then I downgraded to 4.2. I formatted the system on 4.2, can I still restore the 9.2 backup without a brick?

As long it is the same system and the sysnand backup is from that system then yes you should be safe from restoring it back with the backup without it bricking However nothing is 100% safe so take precautions. Just make sure you have a full charge and press up on the D pad when choosing the Downgrade option. Don't forget to back up anything on your SD card as well though not sure that matters since mine was empty.
I've done this myself after testing some stuff and functions on my Gold 3DS XL; still working fine no problems.

Did you format your system and then restore from a backup yourself?

I have done this on 4.5. I Downgraded from 9.2 to 4.5. Formatted sysnand to unlink emunand. Then restored sysnand back to 9.2. No bricks on my end.

    @Xpk24, Sure thing.

    But this is the general chit chat. Nobody responds to questions.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.

    @Veho, I asked them to translate their messages, but they didn't listen.
