    I downgraded both of my old 3DSes with that first sysupdater with NATIVE_FIRM, both of them downgraded perfectly fine. And I used julian's sysupdater on my new 3DS, which worked perfectly fine!

    Updated N3DS to 10.3 using julian's sysupdater (it was on 9.5 prior) then downgraded using safesysupdater.
    No major problems luckily, just had to replace a few CIA files with dev manager. Not all tiles matched with downgrade_checker report

    There's supposedly an increased risk of soft bricking if you try downgrading 9.8 and lower.
    No one really knows if that's a 100% true or not but I didn't want to take any chances.

    my buddy was at 9.9 and safesysupdater decided to derp out on him midway. he was able to md5 check all the files first and when the DG started it just broke.

    Same think happened to me on 9.4. I have never tried downgrading on 10.3 so I can't say for sure it helps, but I'd definitely do that next time around. Can you use the same sysupdater to upgrade as you use to downgrade?

    I used tuxsh's version and it took seven tries (only, thankfully) before I could finally hit downgrade. Went smoothly, no soft brick or incomplete downgrade. I didn't realize until a few days later that I got pretty lucky. had no idea at the time that it uninstalled everything first. Guess I have good luck I suppose
    Edit: downgraded from 10.3 on O3DS

    Reading up lots on this atm. I just got a n3ds with 10.1 on it. Is there a way to update it to 10.3 now that 10.5 is out? I see more success rate with 10.3 than I do with lower fws.

    10.1 isn't that much different from 10.3 though, i think it'll be fine.

    take out your SD card and boot? does it go to the home menu? if not, can you go into the recovery mode?

    best to use a blank SD card to downgrade. and you probably know now that safesysupdater is prone to stopping halfway. maybe try to downgrade again but this time, use sysupdater only.

    That was my problem for some reason Sysupdater kept giving me an error before downgrading. It gave me that
    "getting cia file informations"
    " title exception: main.cpp:148 Result: 0xD900182f failed to get CIA file info"

    After downoading the correct and right firmware. That i use to down grade other 3ds
