    Did you try taking out the SD card and then turning on the console?

    Well, if nothing works, you (probably) bricked. Your only option is to get a hardmod and restore a valid NAND backup.

    Can you post a tutorial for the hard mod restore?

    If you're using Windows: Use Win32DiskImager.
    If you're on Mac / Linux: Open a terminal prompt, and use
    Code:
    sudo dd if=~/Desktop/9.2NAND.bin of=/dev/*yourdisk* bs=1m
    To find what *yourdisk* is, use the command
    Code:
    diskutil list
    As to how to hardmod your console, look here.

    If you don't have a reasonable amount of soldering experience I wouldn't suggest trying to install a hardmod on your own.

    Gambia, The
    At what step were you when you "bricked"? Maybe there are just some files missing on the SD card or Menuhax is fucking up the boot ... Saw some of the problems and you can try some things before you do a hardmod.
    A screen of your sd card and the Part and Step where you were at from the guide would help to figure out if it is a brick or not and if it is a user error or other kind of brick.

    What is up with your grammar? You might need to get an auto correcter.

    Well his flag says he's from Puerto Rico, its quite possible that English isn't his first language, and could instead be Spanish.

    Does the blue light stay on or does it blink and then turn off? If it stays on, it's bricked. If it turns on and off, you're missing files on the sd card

    I've got an old bricked 3DS XL that I'd like to get up and running again, but I don't really see the point in spending lots of money on a good fine-tipped soldering iron just to fix it. It's a pity no one in North America seems to be offering a repair service anymore.

    The service would cost you about the same as all the stuff you need. Including the soldering iron.

    Neither USA hard-mod installer is responding to messages, and the cost of shipping overseas is too prohibitive to be worth it. :(

    You can show the documentation to a friend with some soldering experience, it isn't extremely complex with the recent guides.

    This is exactly what I did. 20 bucks and I was hard modded in about 30 minutes.
