    Hey guys, I'm following this guide ( at the moment and I've hit two problems.

    The first is getting sysUpdater to downgrade my N3DS (ver 10.3.0) and getting past steps 11-16 of Part 2 of the guide. I've tried maybe 30 times now and it always either freezes or fails to find CIA file info after I press Y.

    Because of this, I took out the microSD to see if all the files are properly on there (they were). This created a new problem in that I can no longer boot to the homebrew menu by holding down on boot. It just boots normally to the 3DS home screen.

    So my two questions are:

    1. Can/do I format the microSD and follow the guide from Part 1 again to reinstall the homebrew launcher?

    2. How do I get sysUpdater to downgrade my operating version? Keep trying?
