    Menuhax won't brick a console. Period. Whatever that is, if you can't boot without an SD, it is not Menuhax's fault. He might've broken it...

    What @gnmmarechal said, No way menuhax can brick a console, something else must've happened to the 2DS for sure.

    I'd say it fell, or something. Probably a hardware issue.

    Try to boot it in recovery mode and restore it.

    I've experienced this issue with menuhax before. The theme is corrupted and your 2DS doesn't know how to handle it. Remove your SD card and boot the 2ds (Without the card of-course). If that works, delete the menuhax folder in the SD card and when the system boots up, change the menu theme.

    If nothing works, try going into recovery mode:
