    N3DSXL, with GW fastboot installed on NAND.

    I have not done anything that would impact/modify NAND, went to bed last night. This morning, when I boot, the N3DS screens stay blue before moving on to the dragon logo. If I remove the SD, the N3DS shuts off as it always had.

    It's like the N3DS's SD slot is faulty and can't read the MicroSD. Anyone got suggestions?

    **EDIT**
    Yeah! Turns out the SD was being faulty!! Cheers, tks guys.

    You did the mistake of using their so called implementation of A9LH

    Here is my theory.
    You didn't follow 3ds.guide

    Yes, please do.
    Also, answer me this:
    Why didn't you follow 3ds.guide?

    Some prefer to use a method which can overwrite their stuff without knowledge of the consequences.

    Well I would have set up my system to use GW, but I find that 3ds.guide is a tad bit safer and easier for a cfw if you follow the steps carefully and in order.

    Guys, it worked before, never had an issue, would boot to the OS, fw 11.0.0-33U. I had every intention of working with 3ds.guide TODAY, when booting my N3DS, the damn thing decided not to work.

    The GW Fastboot was done months ago and always worked fine since.

    As for the image, the saves folder is all the saves that I moved into a separate one to capture the files. That is a backup I made late last night expecting to start working on making changes today. Tks for the help guys.

    Well, hopefully there are ways to boot a safe mode or something, otherwise looks like I'll have to get a programmer and dust off my soldering skills...fml
