    i know this is an annoying thing to hear but, shouldnt the first thing you do when you hack any 3ds even without doing a9lh is to make a back up of sys and emunand? idk maybe thats just me.

    I'm rather intrigued by a couple details here. How comes TWL titles and BBM won't work? Also formats? Does anyone know? (Not in this situation, just curious)

    i hope this post can help with my situation...i did A9 on my 3ds and i lost the original NAND file. I undo the A9 and the 3ds back to FW 2.1! i inserted a pokemon game and planned to play it as normal. After it is said the update was done, i back to the home screen! no response when i clicked on each icons! i can't even access the setting! same situation when i pressed LRUPX with power to force update!
    anyone can help @slslasher

    hi, i have bricked my 3DS without NAND backup after direct upgrade from FW 2.1 through setting update...and now, i can do nothing with my 3ds at home screen.
    Is that i have to follow your tutorial from extracteing out the 2.1 from microSD using 3DS Multi EmuNAND Creator and flashed it back to sysNAND with a hardmod before the next step?

    Well dude why do you delete arm9loaderhax, go back to 2.1 and update with a game. I'm sorry but this is dumb. Without a nand backup you can't restore stuff. Always do backups.
