    Yes, you can restore it without losing your purchases. Boot into GW (the browser method), backup your system NAND, transfer the NAND.bin to your PC and also copy the "Nintendo 3DS" folder aswell as the "private" folder (if it exists). Once done, you can downgrade your system. If you ever want to return to stock, copy the NAND.bin to you SD card again, then launch the GW menu, then scroll to the end of the menu till you get to "Downgrade", then hold "UP" and press "A". GW will ask if you want to restore the backup - press "START" to continue with the restore. Once restored - power off the system, remove your SD and copy the backed up "Nintendo 3DS" and "private" folder back to the SD card. Re-insert the SD into your 3DS, turn it on and you'll be back to the original state.

    Keep trying, it's very buggy.

    I've followed step by step the tutorial but at the execution of the cfw my 3ds remains on a black background on the lcd below. I saw the white screen for one second.


    Any help ?

    Hmm, that just seems to me like the regular CFW issue, that you must keep rebooting to fix. Try installing the DS Profile exploit again, I suppose.

    Format emunand doesn't have a progress bar? I've been sitting here and it just says Format Emunand on the top but nothing is happening.

    *EDIT* Well after a few mins it popped up and is now formatting so nvm I guess.

    Is there any way to do this without a computer? My Windows PC is a desktop and it doesn't have wireless, only Local Area Connection, so ctrclient is unable to connect.

    This is like the worst dissappointment ever, I reach the last final step and it's always "failed to connect".IP Adress is the right one, tried changing it too.Name of the .cia is good too.Turned off the firewall.Restarted the CFW million times, tried opening the browser--->freezes.I'm tired, i'm going to sleep. -_-

    So what are the limitations? Can this allow you to install any 3ds game, 3dsware dsiware, homebrew? Is the emunand updatable as it is in Gateway?

    Hey guys, my sister has my SD card from the 3DS with all my digital games on it. If I use the SD that came with my 3DS, format it and to all the steps in here, what happens if I put the SD my sister has?

    What I'm asking is, I use a 32gb SD Card that I share with my sister for her camera. As off right now she's not here so I don't have the 32gb SD to try this tutorial, but I do have the old SD that came with the 3DS, but since its capacity is 4gb, I don't have all the digital games that my 32gb has.
    Can I use the 4gb SD for this exploit and then when I have the 32gb memory back use it too? Or should I just wait?
