    Hello fellow forum dwellers!


    Before anything, I would like to point out that this is not my first time downgrading; my o3ds has already been downgraded once and had Luma set up (I basically followed @MattKimura's guide before Arm9loaderhax was out) and everything worked fine.

    I upgraded back to whatever newest firmware version it was back then and continued on with my life.
    However, and here is where I think I messed everything up, I downgraded back to 9.2 today and well, I can't boot in emunand anymore. Like before, when I turn on my o3ds it shows the different colored screens but then, where it should autoboot to luma (and then emunand) it boots to homebrew instead and doesn't let me go to the home menu anymore.

    TL;DR Downgraded to 9.2, Luma is MIA, Homebrew autoboots instead and can't access Home Menu anymore.

    Any help would really be appreciated (I want my games back please).
    Thanks and have a nice weekend!

    Hi Neo,
    I tried that already but I still can't access the Home Menu (and therefore can't change themes). Homebrew autoboots and stays no matter what, even after pressing "rebooting to Home Menu" or the option with no reboot, it freezes.

    Change the boot.3dsx on your sd card. That should boot luma but i dont know why its not booting without sd card. Find it here Releases · AuroraWright/Luma3DS · GitHub Its in the menuhax folder from the luma release

    Thanks for the link, I'll try this out right away. BRB with an update on the situation.

    -UPDATE-
    @NeoGamer Ok, I'm sorry, I have a huge headache right now and only now fully understood your first reply. I removed the SD card but it says that it can't change themes without it. I've also tried changing the boot.3dsx file and 3/5 tries it gave me the "pikachu error screen" (freezes at yellow screen) and the other 2 tries froze at the red screen + error message: "An error occurred while loading the next payload. Press key to continue" (if I press any key, it goes back to red and this message).

    Only what Matt had written on his guide, so Luma and FBI, and a bunch of games but that's it. No, still no a9lh on my 3ds (was going to after I was done with what I wanted to do but this happened).

    Ok, done it. Seems like I can access home menu again (system settings show 9.2.0E so I guess I'm on emunand again?) but still no Luma and it looks like the 3ds has been formatted (my games are gone lol).

    Your on system nand. The e doesn't mean emunand. That means Europe region. Follow the guide to get menuhax up and running to boot an emunand. Do you have emunand still there on your sd card from before.

    -EDIT-
    I have an Emunand folder on my card yes. And I can't access Homebrew now, same error from before: "error occurred while loading the payload."
