    My cat dropped my 3DS on the floor. Now it's stuck on the home menu. Icons won't show up and I can't select anything. And trying to select the camera freezes the system.

    What should I do?

    Try with no SD card. If the blue light goes on then off try with a new SD card with just boot.firm from Luma 9.1 on it. Does the home menu work after that? If so, put your original SD card back in and see if things work. You probably have some corrupted data. Try deleting home menu extdata and see if that helps your console have the home menu work with the original SD card. If it doesn't, you have some corrupted data somewhere else.

    though this is irrelivant, I think cats are evil sometimes. This is one reason.
    (Do I have to delete this?)

    I tried, but since I didn't update to B9S, my 3DS won't start without a SD card. And my 3DS was off when my cat dropped it, how did it corrupt my data?

    Ok, in my advice replace "boot.firm from Luma 9.1" with "arm9loaderhax.bin from Luma 7.0.5"
    Are you sure it wasn't in sleep mode?

    It wasn't. I never put my 3DS in Sleep Mode.

    Also an update: i removed my SD card from my microSD adapter, reinserted it again and turned the 3DS on. Everything loads, but it takes forever, like 20 or 30 seconds (it loaded everything instantly before)

    Run a check on you SD card. It sounds corrupted.

    Just checked it. Nothing was found. And the problem still remains.

    If you have another SD card, try Quantumcat's advice. If you have another SD adapter try that. I've had those go flaky on me even without a drop.

    Tried swapping the SD adapter, didn't work. And the SD card reads fine on my PC.

    I just got Persona Q2, I don't want to waste money to fix my 3DS because of my fucking cat.

    When you say everything loads, do you mean it works again?

    No. It is still the same thing as before.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Battery trick.
    Use the SD card, do CTRNAND Luma3DS, and try booting without the card.

    I would rename the home screen title directory and boot it up to see if that fixes it.

    USA - 0004003000008F02
    EUR - 0004003000009802
    JPN - 0004003000008202

    It could also be because of badges, so disable those too.
