    Did you follow the guide and downgrade EmuNAND first, or did you downgrade SysNAND directly?

    You didn't answer the question. Did you downgrade *directly* from 10.7 to 2.1 on a New 3DS?

    EDIT: Okay, so you downgraded to 9.2. Remove the SD card and see if it turns on.

    If recovery mode will load, but you can't update due to TubeHax DNS, what you need to do is get to an area where none of the configured networks are available. (and/or temporarily turn off your router) It'll then prompt you to configure the network settings, so you can then remove TubeHax DNS.

    Once that's done, you'll be able to upgrade to 11.0. Obviously you'll need a hardmod to downgrade again, but at least the system will work.

    I don't know if Cubic Ninja has been fixed for 11.0 yet.

    You should try to get 11.0 working first, then consider exchanging it.
