    Running SysNand 9.2 with ReiNand 11.0 (latest update)
    I can use FBI (Injected into H&S) just fine and
    installing CIAS work too (Only seems logical)
    Can access Eshop and any online activities in Rei
    nothing gets deleted when entering Eshop


    So like the title says is there anything I should be worried
    about although everything seems fine?

    Well that's definitely a possibility but I don't think there's anyway that'll just happen right?

    People who aren't into this type of stuff are dumber than you'd like to think.

    Looks like that exactly happened
    I was unlinking my sys and rei and I had to reupdate rei (due to other things) but instead it just updated sys so I guess theres nothing I can do now...

    I don't understand. The video shows you booting to sysnand then booting emunand, then exiting system settings and entering eshop. What is it exactly you're concerned about, and why do you think that sysnand has been updated? The video clearly shows that sysnand is on 9.2 and emunand is on 11.0.

    I was mostly wondering if there was anything I had to worry about with bricking and such but this threads completely irrelevant now because I messed up
    and somehow updated my sysnand

    Oh I see. Do you have a sysnand backup?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Actually it doesn't matter if you have a backup or not. Your options are:
    1. Hardmod and restore from sysnand backup if you have one
    2. Hardmod and downgrade sysnand from 11.0 to 9.2
    Either way this is recoverable, but you need a hard mod.

    I don't think so but is there any backups floating around the internet or is that just not possible to use even if there was one

    No you have to use a backup from your own device. But see my post above - you need to do option 2.

    I actually think I do have a back up I was reading other threads and apperantly I did while setting this stuff up and just did it without thinking
    but can you explain what hard modding exactly does or link me to a thread that explains it

    A hard mod means soldering wires onto the 3ds PCB so you can reflash the NAND. If you have a 9.2 sysnand backup from your console you can reflash that to get back to 9.2. If you don't, there is a way of modifying a 11.0 NAND image to allow downgrading to 9.2, but you'll need a hardmod to flash this too.

    Check this thread if you're not confident to solder it yourself. It's not expensive to have it done and it protects you from future screw ups.

    Don't worry, it's easily done. I bricked my 3ds too but fortunately I already had a hard mod installed so was able to recover quickly. You won't regret the hard mod if you have it done as you can also then install a9lh with absolutely zero risk and then boot directly into CFW with no emunand or menuhax.

    Hardmodding yourself is not something you should consider of you've never soldered before. You could try a asking a games repair or phones repair shop to hardmod it.

    Better to pay someone to do it: by the time you buy a soldering iron, adapter, wires, solder, dremel, etc it will cost about the same, plus if you pay someone you can guarantee it working and not breaking your console. Your flag says you're in the US, hundshamer is an approved hardmodder there.

    Proof that ARM9loaderhax is better than all other exploits because all other exploits are temporary and vulnerable to removal.

    Believe me, people still manage to remove A9LH by restoring NAND backups with D9 without selecting the "Restore NAND (keep A9LH)" option.
