    I may be wrong, but I believe there is someone in the GBATemp community who does or knows about a service to be paid and sending my 3DSXL to them to hardmod it to unbrick it with the NAND backup of the system?

    My 3DS goes to the homescreen (originally 9.2, currently version 4.5, it was downgraded using Gateway downgrader). but it doesnt do anything after that. It just freezes if you enter any app. Ive taken out the Mem card, and the Gamecart, and it just freezes when I try to enter anything. Can someone point me in the direction of who I need to talk to, to fix my 3DS using my NAND backup? I don't want to send it to Nintendo because they will update it to a firmware we all know we don't want.

    I knew of someone here, but if I see the name, Ill remember em. Thanks in advance!

    ::edit:: I also wanted to clarify, the downgrade and everything worked perfectly. This problem happened like a week or two later. Everything was working perfect so I don't even know how this happened.

    I also guess the title should be "WHERE to send for repair via NAND"

    Message hundshamer he offer NAND mods in US

    Ps does your 3ds not show any banners for any applications, I fixed one recently that had similar symptoms and restoring the 9.2 backup and downgrading again fixed it perfectly, I can only assume the downgrade process must of messed up at some point

    I am in the midwest, and have plenty of experience with unbricking restoring 3DS.

    Hi I'm from Michigan and I'm not bricked but I have nand backups for 4.5 and 9.2 and would like to pay for a mod. If the n3ds has been pinned out I would pay to mod that as well. Thank you for your time
