    Getting CIA file informations...
    Is it safe to hard reset, since it still haven't installed anything?
    I'm stuck here for about 10 mins now...

    As long as nothing has been installed you should be fine to hardreset

    O3DS, got stuck on reboot screen, hard rebooted which lead to black screen. Tried turning on without sd card, still black screen. Tried recovery, still black screen. Any other options or is it bricked?

    I don't know if this helps anyone but...
    I successfully downgraded to 9.2 and can run Gateway! So, to help others along, I thought I'd share the sha1 hash of the zip file I used.

    filename: 9.2.0-20U(Full).zip
    sha1sum: ccc272c495a84aa49f8db2da6072a79a73053e19

    Hopefully this helps people who are nervous if they grabbed the right file. Maybe we should make a pastebin/list of known hashes that work?

    I did a hard-reset and now the eshop and system settings are missing... I think I'm not going to attempt this again for a while
