    Hello.

    I was wondering whether anyone could help me as I've accidentally deleted my BACKUP.BIN file during setup. Now, the boot9strap stops because it can't verify the file.

    Any idea how to fix this? It's a softmod, by the way.

    Have you ran "install boot9strap" yet?

    Yes, I did to install boot9strap the first time, but I deleted the boot9strap folder on the 3DS SD card when it wouldn't boot to Luma3DS. Now, it crashes without even getting to the 'install boot9strap' option again.

    I haven't yet, no. I had a feeling it'd be a common issue, hence why I posted on here. Hopefully, someone has an answer for us.

    I currently don't own any flashcarts, although this does sound like something to keep in mind. Cheers.

    It's worth the investment because it does future proof your system, it would also make fixing this issue a lot easier. What method are you using right now to boot into into the installer?

    The boot9strap folder is only needed during install. If you successfully installed boot9strap it should just be a matter of placing the Luma3DS boot.firm on SD: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases

    At the moment, I'm trying to use the Seedminer exploit via the SD card.

    @The Real Jdbye I'll try that out too. Cheers.

    So, just stick the Luma3DS boot.firm on the first screen of the SD card in File Explorer?

    EDIT: Here's the error message for reference's sake:

    Cheers. I'll try that out. I've already tried EaseUS (with no success), so I'll give the other two Windows ones a try.

    EDIT: I appear to have found the file with MiniTool, although I can't recover the file with the free trial - onto Wondershare, then.

    EDIT #2: Ditto with Wondershare. I'll retry EaseUS. The deleted file appears to be called _ACKUP.BIN.

    EDIT #3: BACKUP.BIN recovered. Now, to get around this apparent write-protection which seems to have come up in the last day or so.

    EDIT #4: Write-protection fixed. This may be useful: https://github.com/zoogie/b9sTool/blob/master/TROUBLESHOOTING.md

    Don't use the BACKUP.BIN if EaseUS determines the file you recovered is damaged. That software will mark an incomplete or corrupted file with a warning tag.

    If the free trials won't do, either purchase or resort to other means in acquiring said recovery programs.

    ***

    If your SD card is the one that's having write protection and it's not due to a slider pin lock (found on standard sized SD card), your card may be dead.

    I'd accidentally changed the slider pin lock, so now it's fixed.

    Just checked all of the releases again and there's now a version which doesn't use the BACKUP.BIN file, so I'm now fixed up. Cheers all.

    Hi, Could you tell me which version does not use backup.bin? The same thing happened to me, accidentally delete the backup when installing.

    If you download the latest versions of boot9strap (I think), it will skip it for you.
