    I downgraded my 3ds XL from 10.7 to 2.1 and now i'm stuck in it
    I can't boot up recovery mode for 3ds (A+R+L+Up) for some reason it doesn't work
    I have ARM9HL installed and the lastest Luma#DS version on my SD Card

    I have a game cartridge to update my 3ds but i can't boot in recovery mode.

    Can someone halp me on this?

    PS: Luma3DS boots on a complte black screen

    Try booting without the SD card in.

    The same thing happened with my New 3DS, I took the SD card out and booted and it worked fine. After it boots, re-insert the SD card.

    Yes, it is known, when a9lh is installed you will never be able to use your 3ds without your SD card inserted with an arm9loaderhax payload

    Did you make a NAND backup of your system on 9.2 or 11.0? You have to restore that with Hourglass9 as instructed in Part 5 of Plailect's guide.

    If it won't boot at all and you're stuck on 2.1 you're kinda stuck I guess.

    What? If you have a 9.2 nand backup, use directly the decrypt9 arm9loaderhax.bin to restore it!

    N3DS or o3DS? And why didn't you make one? Why did you skip making it?

    How did you downgrade to 2.1? How did you install A9LH?
    Is your 3DS new or old model?

    Well, why exactly did you downgrade your 3DS to 2.1 in the first place, since you already have A9LH installed?

    So that means they didn't already have 2.1 installed.
    What step were you on on the guide exactly?
    Had you already gotten your OTP and installed A9LH, or did you downgrade and it broke?

    I think the same.

    The thread opener should try to backup all files to a computer and the he should use emunand9 payload to start emunand9 and format the sd card with option "no emunand".
    Afterwards he should try to restore all files from the computer to the sdcard and see if the 3ds boots.
