    My 3ds xl is bricked. First it shows black screen and when tried to mod the screen changed to blue with the different messages every time i am trying to redo the mod. The most messages are

    ERRCODE: 00F800EF
    FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF
    00000400 00000000

    ERRCODE: 00F800EF
    FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF
    00000200 00000000

    00F800EF
    FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF
    00000022 00000000

    00F800EF
    FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF
    00000008 00000000


    I have removed all wires and cleaned the board a lot of times. When i boot on cleaned board and without wires i take
    BOOTROM: 8046
    ERRCODE: 00F800EF
    FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF
    00000022 00000000

    My sd card readers are http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Flash-Memory-Reader-TS-RDP8K/dp/B001NS0OZ4 and http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Fla...3979822&sr=1-5&keywords=transcend+card+reader

    Also when trying to connect the mod on pc with Transcend P8 TS-RDP8K touched i get 2 removabled drives with letters F,G and when i am trying with Transcend P5 9-in-1 USB 2.0 i get 1 removable drive letter H. Neither cases give me access on nand nor format option. Also there is no drive letter shown on w32diskimager

    Any idea?

    well if the console is still BSOD'ing when you remove the wires, something is messed up on the board most likely, for anyone to help you should really upload some good quality, in-focus shots of the board so people can see what kind of state its in

    ok well once you upload some pictures people will be able to take a look, but if you cant all we can say is double check for solder splashes, broken traces, burnt components etc

    I cannot take picture because my camera is damaged and my tablet has low rsolution camera so it is pointless. Is there a chance this problem caused by a small ammount of solder remained on the pinouts?

    it doesnt matter if there is solder on any pin outs, so long as they are not joined to any neighbouring tracks or pads/test points.

    Without wires linked, if you switch on the console and count 2 seconds to see the blue screen, this suggests that the motherboard is out.

    So my console is ruined?
    If that matters i see the blue screen directly after power on. Without waiting any second

    In principle yes, unfortunately.

    Do you have damaged the motherboard ?
    Have you used SD card 3.3V reader or just plug a 5V cable ?

    I have used a usb sd card reader which made some plug in and outs and from then i have that message. Is there a chance the problem caused by soldering remainings?
