    Try and get cfw on it now, I'm dying to know if cfw works on Julian's sysupdater.

    When I press Y the bottom screen flashes red and I am brought back to my list of homebrew apps. Have I done something wrong?

    I'm using just one N3ds. I used CIA's from "That Iso site" and I'm using Julian's sysupdater.

    Are you sure of this? Has this happened? Are people saying to just keep doing it?

    I don't know why OP hasn't bothered to update his post. Makes it really confusing for people who have been out of the loop the past few days.

    I got this to work yesterday by just constantly trying every time it failed. I updated again because cfw wouldn't work and retrying the downgrading was the only thing I could think to do.

    Yes. I downgraded on an O3DS perfectly with it.

    isn't there a way to backup the NAND before downgrading?

    i mean, i backup the NAND and then:
    >If i get Hard Brick, then i could hardmod my 3DS and use the backup
    >If i downgrade successfully, then that's it and no need to hardmod

    So, you've had this error....and you fixed it by just restarting and repeating the process?

    Also, what kind of things are the one that decrease the odds of sysUpdater crashing?

    formatting your SD helps? or keeping it clean? what kind of thing can i do to avoid crashing?

    these are the kind of things we should know

    Okay, that is honestly reassuring. I'll keep restarting it for like 2 hours.
