Hi everyone,

I was following this guide on youtube and my 2DS XL won't switch on after a step in the video. when i press the power button, it flashes for 1/2 a second blue and nothing happens.

the step was the install of safehax after the red screen (i will include video and timecode, hopefully we can link)

I'm hoping someone has come across this problem.

so far I've tried safe mode, putting in a game, removing SD card, charging.

14m35sec (sorry timecode isnt working)

i can install nrt boot without having to do anything on the screen? i still can't switch it on :(
Is your 3ds turning on for a second then turning off (iow, the blue led flashes for a second then turns off)?.

This means your boot.firm is corrupted, named incorrectly (boot(1).firm doesn't cut it), or your sd card is corrupted.

If you used winrar to extract the boot.firm, that could also be the issue.

Next time you hack a system, be sure to NEVER use a YouTube video. They're always outdated quickly.
