I received a bricked 3ds yesterday and unfortunately don't know what I can do. It boots up but non of the icons work and there's 4 black icons. I've tried the system recovery but that doesn't work unfortunately. There is a9lh and hour glass installed but I'm not sure what to do with those and don't want to mess it up anymore. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

How would I do that? Don't you have to be able to launch homebrew browser to do that? I can't open anything on my 3ds.

OK i dont know the 3ds firmware is that alright?

Try checking the SD card for a "luma" folder. If you have that, then you have Luma3DS. If you also have "boot9strap" folder, then you know you have B9S. If you're missing either, you're going to need to go from A9LH to B9S or follow the 3ds.guide to change to this setup.

If he can access godmode9, then he has the luma folder. If someone has installed b9s on the 3ds, then most likely the followed the guide and ran the cleanup_sd script which removes the boot9strap folder.

Eh, for all we know he could have had reinand or whatever other funky CFWs are out there. Checking the folders was a litmus test to be sure we know what we're dealing with.

yeah, I have both of those just didn't know if ctrtransfer was firmware specific.
Nah, it's fine for any firmware the 3DS is on. Hurry up and follow the guide so you can get your 3DS up and running again. That 3DS isn't going to fix itself.

Ok everything good now, thank you everyone!
You should definitely follow the guide and update b9s and luma to the latest, and dump the otp and your nand and keep it in a safe place, I'd suggest burning it to a cd-r and stashing it away somewhere in case of emergency.

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
