    So earlier today I was just gonna change my themes on my 3ds which was on shuffle, I changed the theme but shuffle was still on. So I decided to just shuffle one theme so I don't have the shuffle from earlier. But now my 3ds screen is just pure black now after I turn on it. Is there a solution to this? I already tried recovery mode but its still black.

    Example:

    Try turning it on without your sd card inserted

    Delete the theme extdata that corresponds to your firmware region.

    oh lord. You were only supposed to delete the theme data in that folder. Hope you had a backup

    Don't add anything to your SD card. Try to scan for your Nintendo 3DS folder with a data recovery program; see this list (EaseUS recommended).
