    Hey guys, I did everything on the 3ds.guide site up to this point https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup section II - updating the system
    using a New 3ds xl 11.3
    Then like a fool I updated my 3ds to 11.4... Went on my sd card to remove the hacks and after that my 3ds closed itself and now everytime I try to open my 3ds the blue light comes on for 2-3seconds then nothing.

    boot.3dsx
    boot.firm

    are these files on your sd card, without boot.firm the 3ds won´t boot anymore

    Can you guys actually read the guide properly for once?

    No, your 3DS is not bricked. Yes, it is fine. Just get the correct payloads for the correct version of your hax

    Its fine to update once your 3DS is setup with boot9strap, which you should have by now which is why your 3DS won't turn on. It looks for boot.firm and if it's missing from the SD, it won't turn on.

    Being on 11.4 doesnt mean anything because your 3DS is hacked. The guide clearly tells you that it's fine to update. The guide LITERALLY says to update, so why would you be screwed?

    Put all the files back on the SD like you had before and it will work. Continue following the guide, you're nearly finished. The next steps should enable you to turn on your 3DS without an SD.

    At this point your 3DS is fully setup with boot9strap forever, Nintendo can't patch it. There's nothing more to worry about. Luckily 3DS hacks are fool proof and bricking isn't a thing anymore. Simple B9S installation, install FBI, done.
