If you have a 9.2 backup, you're still in luck!
You can send it to Nintendo and they'll fix it for you.
Then you can contact a hardmodder here

And he'll restore that 9.2 backup for you and you can restart the a9lh install .
Next time use shadow and ;)

Well you can always ask for a hardmodder to first flash that backup so it would at least turn on again, but Nintendo is going to update your 3ds to 11.0, so you'll have to recurr to a hardmodder a second time :(
but would a hardmod even work without a working sd slot? isn't that apart of the process?

It's not, you're fine. Send it to nintendo for them to fix, if they hate it they'll send it back without fixing it.. Then do the hardmod stuff, it has nothing to do with the sd card

okay then, but say i do get it hardmodded... can i send it to nintendo afterward? probably not, right?

i really don't know what can be done at this point

Yes, you just have to do a temporary hardmod, send to nintendo and do a hardmod again (now with the choice of being permanent or temporary again)

Or you try to fix dat shit yourself. I believe it is just a ribbon cable without solder, but im not sure. But the good news is, you cant break whats already broken!

well if its a o3ds/n3ds/n3ds XL then yeah its easily replaceable, for a o3ds xl and 2DS it would require soldering

    I don't really follow new releases and don't know if MS has the same proclivity for exclusives as Sony, but if they buy a large developer/publisher and all their current and future IPs, it gives them the option to make them exclusive to Xbawx.
