    You remembered to take off tubehax when you downgraded right?

    What do you mean exactly? Still a black screen?

    Did you accidentally use the N3DS update data to downgrade?

    Sound like you're bricked unfortunately. You probably used the N3DS pack (or maybe something went wrong during downgrade).
    Wait what
    Don't you mean MenuHax?

    Tubehax DNS disables updates which would stop the recovery menu from working.

    Doesn't matter, as he tried removing the SD (and neither does the update-blocking DNS, network settings can be changed from recovery mode - assuming it works - by staying away from any configured network or Zone)

    It's dead, jim.
    Look into a hardmod. Do it yourself and risk screwing that up or send it off which can be expensive.

    It will be useless, since he doesn't have a NAND backup. OP's 3DS is literally a brick now.

    Well, you can technically swap motherboards, but it will be unnecessarily expensive. If your 3DS is a rare collector edition, you might want to do that, but if it's a standard one, you might as well buy a new / used console.

    Oh yeah, forgot you needed a NAND backup.

    When dealing with potentially dangerous things, especially with someone elses' console you should read carefully.

    Dunno, someone else that knows more about the 3DS' interior will have to answer that

    But it would be easier than hardmod, right? Its my cousin's 3DS, he love it a lot, I have a 3DS that I dont use (with a9lh installed on it), so I was wondering if I could swap them so he can have his 3DS back again. Gonna buy some screwers.

    Would it not be easier to say "Hey, sorry. I made a mistake and bricked your console. You can have mine if you want to." than opening up both of your consoles and potentially breaking both just to lie and say "oh yeah, the procedure went totally fine buddy!"

    Well, hardmod would be useless, since you don't have a NAND backup.
    And, like I said, I wouldn't do that personally (except if the 3DS is a rare collector model) since:
    1) You can only use motherboards from the same console model (obviously).
    2) It's a really risky operation (you have to manipulate a lot of tiny parts).
    3) All your cousin's stuff will be lost anyway.

    You might as well give him one of your consoles, it will be easier and less risky.
