    Not sure if this is the right place to post, but... (sorry)
    I'm going to downgrade my 2DS. I'm following a tutorial on youtube and the guy says I have to format my SD card through the 3DS. The thing is... I have 2 games that I bought over the eShop and one other Mario game that I got for free from the eShop aswell... I have some demos too. So... if I format the memory through the console settings will I lose the games?

    Yes, but you can backup your saves using a homebrew save manager.

    Worst case scenario you can just download pirated cias of those two games along with all of the other games you'll be downloading. ;)

    I can't acess the internet, because it keeps telling me that I need to update my firmware to be able to use the browser. In the video hes in the same firmware as I am?

    When the guide says, move NAND.bin to the pc, does it mean, remove it from the SD card? I can't link the guide, but I'm currently creating and emuNAND

    Actually when I did my downgrade from 10.3 to 9.2 I immediately backed up my sd as well as made a 9.2 nand.bin backup using emunand9. Once I had that I followed the guide and formatted pretty much everything when it said I should in the guide. Once I was done setting up my arm9lh I restored my 9.2 backup and everything was back.

    TL;DR downgrade with formatting anything and make sure you backup your sysnand and sd immediately. Save these on your pc and you would be able to return to your previous state

    Yeah you dont need it on your sd card after you back up so rename the file appropriately and keep it somewhere safe on your pc

    I have a question. I'm trying to boot RXTools from CTRBootManager, but it says Failed to load Native_Firm 4. Reboot rxTools and try again. Am I missing a file here?

    The download may have been incomplete, find the downgrade checking tool to see if your native firm downgraded

    I haven't downloaded it but assuming it's a folder with a *file*.3dsx in it yes that folder goes in the 3ds folder. I don't understand your second question, what folders and files.
