    I was in the last step of setting up A9LH.

    Then I dumped my EmuNAND 11.0 and used Decrypt9 to copy it to SysNand.

    But I forgot to copy with the Keep A9LH option. :/

    Is there a way to recover from this?

    You'll need to hardmod your system, as far as I am aware, at the current moment.

    God dammit.

    Hard mod, here I go.
    Any good guides to suggest?

    At least you won't have to get your otp again. That's a good thing since that can take a while.

    While soldering I acidentally snapped out a copper plate from the CMD pin on the 3DS motherboard.

    I guess it's gameover for me. :/

    Well there is always soldering to the trace, but if you messed up with the pads I would suggest sending it off to someone more experienced to make sure all goes smoothly, I know there is @mvmiranda in brazil that does hard mods, but you would have to check with homnif he is willing to try doing trace work as its a bit trickier than doing it with the pads

    I guess I'll just sell this 3DS as it has several legit games installed (which I had bought before) and buy a n3ds.

    thx @gamesquest1!
    @phalk is already in contact with me. I didn't see a picture of the ripped trace but, according to him, it was ripped until the resin that covers the NAND.
    It'll be a tough job but I have managed to save others like this.

    I'll post some results if/when he sends me the console.

    C'ya!
