    I haven't seen any evidence that it works. It might only work for flashcarts that are modified already. I tried with a normal DSTwo and it didn't work.

    This could be the one thing to save my bricked 2ds that is unable to use the regular recovery menu XD

    I'd like to know as well. I've heard of flashcarts but have never purchased or used one myself.

    Acekard 2i and DSTwo should be able to work but I think they'll have to be reflashed first before they can be autobooted like that.

    Ahh, mind if I ask which one you would personally recommend? I would just like to know I purchased one that works, and when I do, to eventually fix my mistake xD

    If you want to actually play DS games then R4i 3DS Gold (I think that's what it's called).
    If you're interested in the DSBoothax thing, then there's a chance DSTwo won't work, so get an Acekard.

    Would this work with consoles that were hardbricked downgrading with the wrong firmware type (O3DS files on N3DS and vice versa)? Or would Sysnand be screwed?

    It really does work. I've used it to unbrick a 3DS and to install boot9strap on a 3DS with 11.4.0.

    I just don't want to say which card we're using so we can avoid a run on these carts.

    Any idea on when this will go public?
    I hate asking devs that type of question but it's driving me nuts. Have a new2ds on the way.

    Hi probably not the right place to ask, but after doing this tutorial is there a way/software to set (edit with hxd or any other way) the console (nand) that initial settings are set (initial config)?
    I have probably hardware issues with touchscreen controler / microchip so I cannot even start setting it up initially...

    Will this fix any kind of brick? I brick one 3DS by updating using CIAs and other 3DS by using DSIWare hax to downgrade FIRM.

    it should works for u just try it and reply if it worked or not !!! Advice: if you dont know how to perform a harmod on 3ds you should ask a technician to do it for you

    Thanks for the advice, I did many hardmods, and it's a 3ds xl and a new 3ds XL, the two most easy in my opinion :)

    yep Iam agree with you second advice is just that you have to save the bricked nand just to be used as a checkpoint .. good luck :)

    Can you help me fixing this? http://gbatemp.net/threads/weird-3ds-now-bricked-by-dsiware-method.457596/
    I guess my firmware was 11.2 at that time, and doing this tutorial here with 11.2 Firm didn't solve the problem, boots in bluescreen for now.

    Maybe when the DS method is released i'll be abble to fix?

    Thanks!

    You will have to try jump through hoops backwards, figure out what was the last firmware the tools attempted to downgrade too, it's possible you used the incorrect "source" nand at the time, I have unbricked a system in a similar position but the blind hops around can be very tedious and annoying especially when there was a series of mistakes/conflicting guides and version eye, especially if you don't remember exactly what tools and options were used to arrive at the eventual brick

    Personally in your position unless you want to do some mental gymnastics and tedious trial and error work I would just wait on magnethax to be released as that should fix it with no real effort involved

    Would this method work with a fullbricked N3DS?
    One SystemTitle got deleted via FBI on it and it's unable to boot into HomeMenu nor into Recovery-Menu.
    Would this work?

    Yeah almost certainly, just use a hardmod to install sighax and do a clean ctrtransfer to get your system back into a bootable state
