    Did you at one point put in DNS settings to block updates? Maybe double check that.

    Just a quick question after doing the ctrtransfer do I need to redo arm9loaderhax? And How about the ticket restore?

    OK just did the stuff in you link but now I have zero content on my 3ds :/ not even sure if now safe to update it looks revert to stock to me.

    Ok not sure you can help me out here. So all worked out fine for one 3DS but now doing/did another one.

    The only difference I did with this one is after I restored emunand I directly updated it to the latest firmware trough system menu. But now It won't install .cia's always get stuck.

    I tried to the https://plailect.github.io/Guide/9.2.0-ctrtransfer
    But that just gives an error. So is there no way to get back to 9.2.0 after system update?

    Because what fixed my other 3DS seems to be restoring emunand then do the 9.2.0 ctr transfer and then update.
    But with this 3DS is restored emunand and then immediately updated the 3DS and cia won't install and cant use ctr transfer.

    I appreciate all the help so far.

    Got around the error.

    Succeeded in going back to 9.2.0 and then updating + restoring tickets.

    The bad part is it didn't fix the problem. It still won't install big .cia files without hanging trough fbi.

    My other O3DSXL with same sd card that had the same problem was fixed in this way.


    So yeah I'm out of ideas :/

    Is it safe to just copy everything from the SD to PC and just dragging it to a new SD card???

    EDIT: clarify the other 3DS that now works is using the same brand of sd not the same card. And had the same issue before I used 9.2.0 ctrtransfer.

    But yeah no dice with this on :/
