    Not that long ago I was struggling for space on my computer and all I had was my 64gb micro sd in my 3ds so I took it out and formatted it. Now that I want to play my 3ds again I can't. I copied the same exact files I previously had and now I can't even boot to my 3ds homescreen. It just says "Failed to apply 1 FIRM patch(es)." I saw a post that said just download the newest boot.firm from Luma3ds and I did but I still can't even get to my homescreen. I can log into GodMode9 but my sd card doesn't show up and when I try to Remount my SD card it fails... Am I screwed or is there any possible fix?

    put the SD card in your computer, right click on it and goto properties, make sure it's FAT32 and not exFAT or NTFS

    turn off your 3ds, remove the SD card,
    copy all the files off your SD card on your computer

    hold Start and power on, and boot into GodMode9

    insert your SD card ignore anything about being able to initialize it,
    press Home
    goto More...
    choose SD format menu
    choose No EmuNAND
    choose Auto
    name your card, default is fine
    then do the key combo,
    once it's finished, put it back in your PC and copy all the files back


    this will reformat the SD card and hopefully should fix it
    GodMode9 will format it into a format that is needed, and does not require downloading 3rd party software and playing around with things
