    Whenever I need to do something which takes a while like downgrade or installing a cia, I will plug it in and leave it with the screen facing out on my desk, then press the button and not touch it at all until it's done. Only bricked once while doing this stuff and that was in emunand so who cares :P

    1. Enter recovery mode
    2. Update to 10.5
    3. Hardmod it
    4. Backup NAND
    5. Do a FIRM downgrade
    6. Try again until it works

    Good one.

    Anyways, just upgrade and follow the hardmod thing to downgrade, it's your only bet.
    Last thing would be Sky3DS+ if you're only interested in piracy but you'll miss some sweet homebrews.

    Should be common sense not to do anything to put the system to sleep while its performing any actions.

    How does official Nintendo update handle this? Does it just ignore the lid being closed?

    probably they would have to incorporate some sort of safety mechanic, a lot of 3ds owners are kids

    It wasn't due to clumsiness though.

    Wow...I'm so glad I didn't have the problems you're having with downgrading. When I was finally able to downgrade I put my 3DS on the floor with it connected to the charger and silently prayed lol.

    I hope you'll be able to downgrade, but if I were you, I'd just buy a Sky3DS. Hardmodding seems scary to me.

    Will you knock it off? He already felt shitty enough just posting this thread, he doesn't need people like you continuing to kick him while he's down. He's even moved on by now (since he's now on 10.5) so this post is unnecessary. It's keyboard warriors like you that are the reason people are intimidated by posting anything on GBATemp. Don't have something constructive to say? Then don't say anything and move on.
