    As the title suggests, I downgraded my 9.2 that already had the 9.4 update nag, formatted emuNAND, attempted to update emuNAND to 9.4 from 4.2 and it produced an error instead of going through with the update.

    My thoughts are that the downloaded update only works from 9.2 to 9.4 since it was downloaded on 9.2.

    I've since solved the issue by injecting 9.2 into my emuNAND, but I bring this up because I wonder if this will also keep my sysNAND from updating. This would be a great safeguard from accidentally updating. Anyone with a hardmod on 9.2 willing to experiment?

    i has hardmod in me 3ds xl and if you update the sysnand to 9.4 ofw for error, if you have the copy of 9.2 or 4.5 sysnand you can downgrader without problems. (i test this yesterday, i has my copy from 9.2 sysnand and my 3ds xl has now 9.4 sysnand because i wait my red card gateway from yeahgeek)

    Sorry, I don't really understand what you are saying, but I don't have any problems. I want to know if it will give me an error if I try to update from my downgraded 4.2 sysNAND since I have the update downloaded from 9.2 for 9.4. I figure that I'm missing stages that are required to go from 4.2->9.4 and think it would be an effective means to preventing accidental updates.

    I use google translator better. To get this straight, you what you want to update the sysnand 4.5 to 9.4? Anyway I'll tell you my experience if it helps.

    as you have told me I have hardmod in my 3dsxl, I did a couple of days ago when I downgrear my console to version 4.5 saw the emunand not update to 9.4, giving error upgrade, so I decided to upgrade the sysnand effectively upgrade smoothly, taking 9.4 fully functional sysnand, then make a copy of sysnand 9.4 (I have a copy of the nand 4.5, 9.2 and 9.4) and restored the nand 4.5 to sysnand console, then inject will nand 9.4 to sdcard emunand partition and this worked without problems.

    also tell you that if you update error, with hardmod will not have any problem if you have a copy of the nand you care system.

    Finally tell you that you can use the same way back to restore sysnand console with emunand.bin with hardmod.

    Thanks, you answered my question. The update goes through smoothly on sysNAND. :sleep:
