I turned on my CFW O3DS and got just a blackscreen. Literally five minutes earlier I had been playing Pokemon and my battery ran out, I took out the SD card to put on a new theme, put it in and got a random black screen.
No, this isn't me screwing up with my 3DS setting up CFW, I have had homebrew working on my 3DS for a while now and this is random. I let my 3DS sit for a while and it just sat at the black screen with no response.
Idk what's happening, pls help.

did you get your black screen when booting your device, or when you try to install your theme?

probably corrupted some data on the sd card because of removing the sd card.

maybe replacing the a9lh files fixes it

backup the sd card files you had, it really should be the sd card problem.

can you launch in other modes with the buttons pressed?

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
