    Hi all,

    I have managed to. downgrad my n3ds from 11.2 to 10.4 using Plailect's downgrade guide using DSiWare.

    The problem I have now, is I am unable to downgrade from what's supposed to be 10.4 (even though under System Settings to shows 11.2.0.35) to 9.2.

    Could someone point me in the right direction to a guide or give some advice to be able to do that.

    Also when I try to downgrade to 9.2 using browserhax it says 'the browser is not supported'

    I really need some help to get my n3ds to downgrade.

    Thanks in advance.

    The system is still treated as a 11.2 set even if you downgraded to 10.4, you need an exploit that works on 11.2 like stickerhax, ninjhax.

    If you don't have one, you can't continue downgrading to 9.2. You should probably read the guide again, then again because you clearly missed out on a lot of stuff.

    I used fieldrunners as my entry point game and followed the guide, I also did the system transfer from my o3ds hacked to n3ds xl and fieldrunners hack tuns on the n3ds. It's after that, that doesn't work.

    Fieldrunners is not an entrypoint.

    DSiWare hax is just to downgrade your Native_Firm. That's it.

    The guide should have made you install steelhax as well. I am not sure if it works on 11.2, I think it does, and that's what you should have booted up.

    I am confused... did you do the DSiWare method or did you do a hardmod? If you followed the DSiWare method, it should have made you install fieldrunners and steelhax.

    If you did a hardmod, then you'll need to find an appropriate entrypoint. There really is no "best" option, though I use Freakyhax.

    So if I follow the guide again including the steelhax section (which I thought was only for 11.0 and below) and then do the system transfer again in a week, it will let me boot Steel Diver on the new 3ds and get in to the Homebrew Launcher to downgrade to 9.2?

    Steelhax is broken on 11.2, it's says so in the guide, read all of guide before you try the steps! You need an 11.2 confirmed primary entry point such as ninjahax, freakyhax, or oot3dhax.

    Ok. So what's the point of fieldrunners?

    This is an exploit to be able to use DGtool on un-hacked console to downgrade NATIVE_FIRM to 10.4, so that at that point we can execute sysDowngrader from HBL to get us to 9.2 (the firm where A9LH is installable).

    So after I do that to NATIVE_FIRM how I can I execute HBL on the n3ds to then use sydDowngrader?

    You should be able to use steelhax on the partially downgraded system.

    I've seen a few cases where that has worked.

    The guide was written with steelhax but that is broken on 11.2, so you have to find an alternative entry point that's either primary or secondary and set up on CFW 3ds.

    I use ninjahax using 11.1 payload as smea confirms this to work. Here is a list of exploits working on latest firmware: https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Exploits

    Not from eshop, have to buy as a physical cart or freakyforms deluxe, here is the info on the steelhax progress for 11.2: https://gbatemp.net/threads/steelhax-a-steeldiver-subwars-secondary-entrypoint.440673/page-9

    My mistake on guide, I could have sworn it warned about the exploit not working on 11.2

    From bottom of plailect dsiware downgrade guide:
    Continue to Homebrew Launcher (No Browser), using steelhax for your entrypoint instead of one of the ones listed if 3DS #2 is below 11.2.0.

    You're agreeing with me, right?

    On a true 11.2 steelhax won't work. But since the Native firm is what added steelhax PASLR, the partially downgraded system can use steelhax

    ...I think

    The way I read the guide, it tells you to use steelhax as an entry point for 9.2 downgrade IF the unhacked system was below 11.2. This is at bottom of dsiware guide.

    I haven't tried it, but I would imagine there is a reason plailect put that statement there.

    I won't be able to try this again and do the system transfer for a week. If anybody find a solution in that time or tries this and it works, I would be grateful. Thanks

    I'm thinking steelhax works on a system that is partially downgraded.
    I have been following the open/closed issues for a few days.

    Seems more like he is trying to get the guide to be more accurate.

    Before it had a disclaimer next to steelhax that it was for systems below 11.2, that part is gone now.

    This, among other users cases, make it seem like it should work.

    I'd still get steelhax setup before the transfer, regardless. It's free and takes 2 minutes. It is worth it, even if it is redundant.
