    So I bricked my 3ds cuz I got banned and I found another friend seed code and secure info a on youtube. After I injected them, I got bricked. I can access the luma menu, godmode 9, and decrypt9 btw.
    I don't have a nand backup(I use to but computer got corrupted and I got a new computer but due to me being busy with school I wasn't able to dump the nand and completely forgot about it) but I do have a otp.bin.
    So is there anything I can do or am I done for.

    As far as I know, CTRTransfers neither modify the SecureInfo_A nor the localfriendcodeseed.

    Between insane and insecure
    You really shouldn't trust youtube videos for these kinds of things. Even if it didn't brick your system, there was high chance that it was going to end up being banned.
    If you can still access all of the payloads, try just getting another seed from a trusted source like That Chaos site.

    You can't use someone else's edited secure_info A injected into your console's sysNAND, it will 100% brick if it the RSA signature has been modified. This has been common knowledge since the emuNAND days of old (Lol). Do not use files you got from some YouTube video!!

    Anyway, try the CTRNAND transfer (11.5) again, but use Decrypt9 not Godmode9 and see if that works. Also, if you do get it fixed I would suggest ALWAYS keeping a NAND backup on your console. Don't be lazy, and don't be cheap; a 64GB SD card is like $10 and plenty storage enough to always have a current NAND dump present, then if this happens and you're on vacation or something you can fix it right away.

    NAND dumps are kind of important.

    Well I updated. But i still boot to a black screen. I can still access payloads and recovery mode. For some reason when i boot without the sd card inserted, it turns off almost immediately after pressing the power button

    I'm honestly surprised no one has suggest this https://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-tool-a-tool-for-backing-up-restoring-wiping-sensitive-data.480762/

    It's more than likely going to work 100% as it restores your consoles actual info from memory, so you don't even need your original Secureinfo_A.

    Well, assuming you can ever get to the HomeMenu anyway......

    EDIT: The only other thing I can think of is find someone who is wiling to dump you a good secureinfo_A from a broken console for your region, edit the serial code to match yours, inject it, and then use the tool above to restore your own, then destroy the donated file.

    Did you try the Lazarus script? https://github.com/AnalogMan151/Lazarus3DS

    Actually, Luma has supported unsigned SecureInfo_A loading for a while now.

    Whoa, when did that drop? That's awesome!

    Also @MYST78, if you use the Lazarus script beware of the following:

    unsigned =/= corrupted? Does it consider them one in the same? If it's not the signature then it must be corrupted.
