    Hi I currently have luma3ds on 11.33E but I backed up a NAND on 9.2 am I able to restore that NAND and magically jump back to 9.2 and will I lose my games and saves? (Mostly like lose them from my guess)

    Downgrading via backup of the same console: Yes, in fact it's by far the cleanest and most reliable way

    Losing games/saves: If they weren't installed when you made the backup, they won't appear as installed due to missing tickets: however if the movable.sed is the same (you didn't factory reset/tinyformat/system transfer after creating that backup) you can just reinstall the tickets (or the cias with devmenu, which will see the files are already on SD and stop after the ticket)

    I think your save games will still work, as long as you never did a format since backing up 9.2. You can back up the saves with JKSM beforehand if you want to be sure.
