Hi,

Since some people seems to wait for a safer downgrader, i did one in a few hours. This is a fork of sysupdater, with a few things added which should prevent some errors (wrong region downgrade pack, corrupted downloads...) :

- automatically load update information (needed files, md5) based on your 3ds model and region
- md5 check all the cia update files before downgrading
- can check your update files without actually downgrading

To use it you have to :

- Put SafeSysUpdater.3dsx somewhere you can launch it...
- Put your downgrade pack as usual ("/updates/*.cia")
- Launch it multiple times until it pass the black screen (hax)...
- Pray

  • DOWNGRADE PROCESS IS NEVER 100% SAFE
  • BE SURE TO REMOVE THE UPDATE NAG BEFORE DOWNGRADING : HERE
  • SOME TIPS TO PREVENT A BRICK : HERE

Notes:

- If it freeze just after you press (Y) to downgrade or "init ->" more than 1 second, restart..
- The 9.2 JPN package is in fact a 9.1 package, no problem with this..

Changes :
- v1.0: add new hax for FW > 10.3
- v1.0: downgrade browser and homemenu last (but before native_firm)
- v1.0: few bug fix and improvements
- v09: add downgrade logs ("/SafeSys.log")
- v09: only md5 check downgraded files
- v09: remove sysupdater dependency
- v08: fix JPN files path..
- v07: finally fixed the input freeze... by removing this second confirmation screen.
- v06: try to fix input freeze... again
- v05: minor input fix
- v04: added japan support (with bad title skipping)
- v03: big improvement in hax success rate
- v02: Add simulation mode to check your update files without actually downgrading
- v01: Removed the config files, just put the ".3dsx" file somewhere and downgrade... and pray.
- v01: Added a CIA version to downgrade from emunand so you don't need to try hard to get the hax to succeed (so it's just for testing/reporting bugs). Testing this will ensure the MD5 for each regions/models (only o3DS/n3DS USA/EUR for now) and downgrade process is correct/working. Thanks for reports !

Solid work man, I'm already downgraded but these safety checks should be good at stopping most User-Errors :)
Way to step up and seize the opportunity haha.

I was just about to downgrade until I saw this, so I think I'll wait until it's okay to use this instead!

I think it can be a good idea. If people with an hardmod confirm that it does work correctly, then it will be (a little) safer to use this. But for now it's not :)

This is exactly what the downgrade process needs as the very heart of it involves magically acquiring files via nudges and winks.

Great!! Also, I have a quick question. I'm downloading 9.20.0U(full).zip for my O3DS. Is it supposed to be roughly 11GB in size because my computer says that it is.

Both my O3DS and my friend's O3DSXL have been downgraded already but since I was going to get a 2DS to fuck around with (hardmod, etc) I think I'll definitely give this a try

I thought so. My zip file says system.zip so I must not be doing this right.
The "9.2.0-20U(Full).zip" is around 173Mb. The thing is if you don't have the correct files you won't brick with this as it won't let you downgrade without the correct files. (but still needs to be tested by hardmod's before)

Got it fixed! :) So the question is...should I go ahead and downgrade or wait for safesysUpdater to be finished?
You need to wait for people to report (or you can use the normal sysupdater if you are sure of your files, it will be safer for now). For me it's ready, but it may have some bugs i didn't spot...

Where did you download that? If you had a problem with the file size, please, triple-check if they're the correct files. The current tools shouldn't brick by themselves... But with the wrong files it's guaranteed brick.
I got the mega link off of youtube since I couldn't find it on that site that I went to. It has 127 files in the zip folder. Is that the correct amount, or is it supposed to be 130?

If it has a folder named updates and 126 files in it, that looks like it.

Scan the MD5 and compare it to this list.
