    Sounds like you might have somehow either messed up the SD card or the sysnand. What homebrew stuff have you done with your 3ds?

    EDIT: Also, if you have an auto.3dsx file on the root of your SD card, try removing that.

    Step 1) Remove your sd card.
    Step 2) Turn on your console.
    Step 3) Insert your sd card without power off.
    Step 3) Wait till programs appear on home menu.
    Step 4) Go to themes and change it for the white one.

    And if that does not work for some crazy reason, back up your Nintendo 3DS folder to your computer and format the SD card. Then put the folder back onto the SD card.

    Insert the SD card while the 3ds is on. (be careful around the battery since youre on n3ds)
