    Hi, i wanna start my cfw 3ds over again. Im trying to delete the stuff from y micro sd card and start over. Though, my micro sd card is corrupted and I cant edit any files. (Believe me, I've tried everything). I already bought a new micro sd card. If I just swap them, will it be like new? Thanks!

    You can start over by formatting your system from the system settings. This and a new SD card will accomplish what you want.

    If you're wanting to remove CFW as a part of the process of starting over, you should not do this. You should boot your 3DS while holding the Select button to check which version of Luma3DS is installed. Do this once with the SD card and once without it.

    Yeah, its just that my sd card got corrupted and I can't edit anything. I didn't quite understand the luma thing you said, thanks!

    i think formatting my 3ds from the system settings could be the best option

    Put the SD back in, turn on your 3ds while holding down select. you should see a settings screen. Send a pic of that screen.

    Don't format just yet.

    Don't format yet, we need to know what CFW you have.

    i followed a video on how to remove it from sthetix and it ended up telling me there isn't enough space or something. Plus I cant delete any of my installed cia games. And I have 4.7gb left

    you should NEVER follow video guides. Also, since you have luma 10.x.x, I assume you also have Boot9Strap installed. If so, I don't see why you'd wanna start over

    if the SD is corrupt then that makes it read only. No deleting things off of it, (like games) or writing new things to it. Get a new card and put luma + gm9 on it

    Yeah thatgs what im asking. The new sd card should arrive today. Is swapping the sd cards enough to essentially deleting cfw? Like if I use the new sd card, apparently there is still cfw in my console still. If i put the new one in, should it be fine? Or are there things I'm supposed to do first?

    just make sure to use gm9 to replace H&S with fbi

    then install the luma updater cia, homebrew launcher cia, and other things I guess
