    This is an outdated guide which I have only left untouched for preservation purposes.
    Plailcet's guide is a lot more updated and is much better to follow.

    So I did the tutorial step - by - step and I get the Black Screen of Death. Here is what it said 'An error has occurred. Hold down the POWER Button to turn off the power, then turn it on and try again.' That is what I did and still get the error. Is there a fix? I can't do a Hardmod.

    I have tried that, but there isn't a folder with that name neither the other regions' versions. Deleting the extdata folder also did not work. Is there something else I could try to recover from the black screen on my N3DS? Just to clarify what I am getting: the black screen appears only with SD inserted. Also, I can't access recovery mode with or without the SD. Thanks guys

    If the black screen is only Western the SD is inserted then there's files you need to delete. You'll have to experiment to find which ones.

    Nowhere on the website that keeps getting linked does it say anything about downgrading firmware, so stop recommending it.
