    I had already used 3ds.guide to take care of an old 3dsXL and it went perfectly fine. I picked up a N3dsXL which was on FW 10.7.0.32U. Everything was going fine until loading arm9loaderhax. Went to http://2xrsa.3ds.guide and the screen glitched. I pressed select as the troubleshooter said, but it got stuck there. I waited a few minutes, and nothing happened. I powered down...then I get failed to mount CTRND. I can boot into the Luma settings, and I can also boot into hourglass, but when I try to restore my NANDmin.bin that I had created, it must have somehow gotten corrupted because it will fail (Not a proper NAND backup for this 3DS). I have checked the microSD for errors, but it comes up clean.

    Heh, I picked up this extra so my kids could both play XLs...so I am hoping it's not a nice paperweight.

    I have read up and down for hours now, and the only solution I see is to run the NAND backup...help!

    Between insane and insecure
    Did you test your SD card before starting all of this? Because the NAND shouldn't have corrupted so easily, unless your SD card was the issue.
