    So, I've got it downloaded and running, but then what do I do? flash a stock CTRnand? 'Cause I don't see any options to fix the 3DS firmware unless it's somewhere obvious, again.

    Post #18,
    If you were planning to skip steps 1-4 and go straight to step 5, I insist at the minimum you at least do step 1.

    Sorry for the late response, bad internet.

    Anyways, I backed up the borked NAND and restored a fresh one and the crashing went away. So, I understand that I have to use the script, but what option in the script? I've already restored the borked one to retain settings.

    Instructions in performing CTRTransfer with the script, CTRTransfer (Type D9).

    So, I did the transfer, reinstalled everything, but I got one random crash from it bumping my leg.
    Also, the volume slider broke somehow. Idk how it happened, but it did.

    Should I just buy an entirely new 2DS? this one seems like a lost cause at this point.

    This reminds of someone who had a n2DSXL where his would either shut off or crash when angling his top screen at a certain way or (bumping?) it.

    Due to a design flaw, his solution was to tape his certain flex cable. Finding his thread from the GBAtemp search bar eludes me atm.

    No. Not another n2DSXL. If you're going to replace it, get a n3DSXL instead.

    Ah, found the thread.
    Here's the cable that's being referred to,

    ***

    With the n2DSXL turned on with HOME Menu running in the background,
    Give your n2DSXL a minor slap to the under* side (battery / lower half), or lightly tap the bottom corners against your knee. If the n2DSXL crashes, it's definitely a hardware issue.

    Again, sorry for the super late reply. The 2DS ran perfectly fine with the hit on the knee and the back. I was wondering, What about ReiSix CFW? I know it hasn't been worked on in years, but would it work? would it fix the crashes?
