    So after I downgraded yesterday, I can't run ninjhax anymore. I think it's because I installed it on 10.3 and not 9.2.
    How do I uninstall it so I can re install it for 9.2?

    It's frozen, it happens all the time.

    Just 2-3 seconds after pressing Y, it should show a text line

    Does anyone know which sysupdater version works best for the new 3ds? i tried to launch the sysupdater app 10x but the only thing I get is a black screen.

    dissabling the routers firewall helped A LOT

    it reached 40%, with it ON it reached 10%, 20% at best

    BUT IT STILL HANGED AND CANCELLED

    I try downgrade and everything looks ok, my 3DS restart and turn up without errors. But when I access to System Setting, it frozen at loading and cant access. Anyone know what happen and how to fix it? Does my 3DS brick ?

    What's the name of the zip file containing CIAs that you used?

    Followed this method 100% and the downgrade worked after a few tries to get into sysupdater. Used the SULib version and OOT3DHax. Now to play around. Thanks Perk ♥

    *edit* This was on a N3DS on 10.3.

    Ah, that one doesn't contain the entire update. Do it again with 9.2.0-U(Full).zip and it should work ^_^
    Oh, and remember to remove all existing CIA files in SD:\Updates before putting in the ones from the new zip. Just making sure.

    Do you know anyone with a better connection? Maybe an university?

    Should have used a clean 9.2.

    Don't use that one, get the one in the first post (OP).

    Well, I finally downgraded my own O3DS XL.

    Used Julian20's newest sysupdater and went from 10.3 to 9.2. Sysupdater always opened, but I had to try 4 times.

    That sounds like a good (and safer) idea, go for it.

    EDIT: Wait, can you access safe mode to update it? Because I just remembered you can't use system settings.
