    So I tried to donwgrade my N3DSXL from 10.0 to 9.2(E). Everyting installed well but it didn't reboot itself. SO powered off and tried to reboot but it now stays on a black screen. I see all the lights working, but the screen stays black. After a couple of tries trying to reboot I got this

    If I try to press the home menu it hangs on the screen saying Home-menu. Is there any chance for me?

    Yeah I had actually to go into HBL through Cubic and installed it after that. Thankfully it just booted without the sd card :)

    I ran into another problem with menuhax, when I try to install it says install failed, 0xd900182f? Never happened before?
    What did I do wrong? It's the same starter zip I used for my normall N3DS?

    Have you opened the Theme Settings menu once in your home menu?

    You're using an old version of Ninjhax. Delete your cubic ninja save, and install Ninjhax 2.5. Then try again.

    What do you mean install 2.5? Do I need to change the starter files? Or just use https://smealum.github.io/ninjhax2/#qrcode and scan the qr code for 9.2.0-20E?

    Change the starter files. Get the new package and the new boot.3dsx and just replace the ones you have. (or delete the ones you have first)

    No you need to rescan the QR code using the 2.5 version. It's scanning the QR code which installs the Ninjhax payload, and it's this which needs to be updated.

    Pff I don't know what it is with m N3DSXL, but now the problem is I can't dump the sysnand to NAND.bin? Trying to make a backup, but it gives me headsches

    Try booting into gateway menu and dump your nand from there.

    Gateway menu? Is that the puple one after booting? I get to choose between reinand (not setup yet) and HBL etc, but I think that it's teh ctrbotmanager if I'm right?

    btw it's not on the picture, but it says underneath it:

    EmuNAND: SD not ready
    SD storage: unkown filesystem

    since all cfw, reinand, rxtools, and gateway share the same emunand, you can use any method to backup nand and format emunand. For me, I would go to gateway's website download their zip package, put launcher.dat on sd and boot into their special menu. From there, i can easily backup nand and format emunand. After that's done, you can then use rxtools or reinand as your main cfw booter

    Yeah, my first N3DS that I downgarded worked without any problems? But I'm formatting the card again now to start over. However, don't know what this means?

    EmuNAND: SD not ready
    SD storage: unkown filesystem

    Not formatted properly?
