    As soon as i open sysupdater it freezes i cant even choose downgrade option, any help would be nice? I have tried hard reseting about 4 times. Also i use IronHax,10.3 EUR O3DS.

    It does indeed say that, but people with hardmods who have been testing have had success when downgrading on N3DS.

    I belive so. I have been reluctant to use "browserhax" as I think I would get the block on it. I am completely incompetent when it comes to that kind of thing, so I am just holding back for now.

    Can somebody please put up either a screen or tell us what changes when this is confirmed to have successfully downgraded?

    Downgraded my N3DS XL fine, but had the blackscreen issue with my SD card inserted. Is there anything I need to delete from it to make it work or have I lost all my saves? Deleted all the hack stuff and still blackscreening.

    Is there anything else JPN users should be aware of other than the 000400102002CA00 CIA?

    I'm going to try this guide on my N3DS later, is it safe if I do the procedure as it's stated on the guide? Also, has the problem with CFW (that couldn't be installed) resolved?

    If your homescreen shows up after removing your sd card (assuming you have a black screen when it's inserted) you need to delete 000002cc/d/e (depending on your region) in your sd card's extdata in the Nintendo 3DS folder

    I have just tried a third, I didn't know I had god-like luck for not getting bricked, and it is going through the process of installing the "NATIVE_FIRM" and CIAs.
