Here's my story: -Went through the plailect guide step by step, got to part 2 of the guide. -Downgraded to 2.1.0 ctrtransfer just to realize the wireless on the 2ds is turned off. google searched ways to turn it back on again, came across a post somewhere instructing to update the sysnand with a super smash bros REV0 1 card which I happen to have to get back to 9.2. -What ended up happening was, the 2ds got updated, it booted up fine. The catch was that no application wanted to boot, the 2ds stopped reading game cards and trying to access the browser results in a frozen screen. I haven't really managed to get A9hl on any 3ds model and have been doing fine with emunand on multiple systems*2 O3dses, 1 2ds and 1 N3ds*. I have a japanese N3ds that's on 9.2 rearing to go, but I held off doing the plailect guide because of this experience. Do you guys have any suggestions? or should I just sell this 2ds as is and stick with emunand on my N3ds. Honestly, I am willing to pay someone to do it for me at this point. EDIT: Entering soft recovery mode works, but I am holding off updating it to 11.1.0-34 U EDIT 2: I tried to update through recovery mode and the update ended up failing. EDIT 3:even after multiple attempts, the 2ds wont update through recovery mode and will always show the same error as the image posted below.
