    Remove SD card. Turn on 3DS. Change theme. Turn off 3DS. Insert SD card and see if it works.

    No problem. You didn't need to change your theme you just needed to press the theme button in the top left of the bottom screen. That disables Menuhax which causes that problem.

    4 tries, different versions of sysUpdater, and I tried with the Zip file and with the tpp file.
    4 times the O3DS finished downgrading and when sysUpdater restart a screen appear telling me to shutdown the 3DS.

    First attempt to downgrade: 9.9E
    The others were from 10.3 because i can use Safe Mode.

    I tried removing the SD, but the same thing happens.

    Edit: 6 tries, same problem ;-;

    Try formatting before you downgrade.

    It can but it's risky (or at least it was risky).

    I'm hoping they are working on it. I hate to take back my old 3ds from my mother in law. Yes my mother in law is a gamer.

    works like charm.
    one thing to note, use a faster card.
    i had a class4 tf card, always gives me black screen.and fail to read cia
    after switching to the original tf card came with the 3ds, it works, no black, no death, no nothing, even reboot itself, by the time i notice its done, i am already in the upgraded system menu lol !!!
